[Only the Jewish press took note of this most newsworthy report. The Western media didn’t even bother ridiculing it or calling the idea of an actual “blueprint for Syrian civil war” “ludicrous.” Now that most of the facts reported in the Syrian news report have largely come true, reading it should seem less like fiction to all of you non-believers. For the rest of us, the the report is self-validating, simply because of its prophetic accuracy. Proving “premeditated mass-murder” in Syria will make the preliminary case for Nuremberg-like war crimes trials possibly “crimes against humanity” for both Bandar bin Sultan and Asst. Sec. State Jeffrey Feltman, or anyone who helped them commit the criminal acts.]
(a) Crimes against peace:

A regime-linked Syrian website reports on a U.S.-Saudi plan to foment unrest and oust Bashar Assad through killings, mass demonstrations and arson, not unlike what is happening now.
By Zvi Bar’el
The heavy blackout imposed by Syria on coverage of the deadly demonstrations there, including the number of casualties and the extent of the serious damage caused to Ba’ath Party offices in a number of cities, is not hindering another kind of reporting.
The media there are seeking out details of involvement of “foreign elements” they say are trying to foment a revolution in Syria. These reports impart information about kinds of vehicles these “elements” have used, the weapons in their possession and the means by which they have recruited demonstrators.
The Syrian media have never been as open as they are now in describing the subversives. The sunshine reached new levels with a recent expose by the Champress Internet site, which has close ties to the regime, on a secret Saudi-American plan to topple the government of President Bashar Assad, presented in full.
According to the report, the plan, which was first broadcast on the Iranian Arabic-language television station Al-Alam, was formulated in 2008 by the Saudi national security advisor, Prince Bandar bin Sultan and Jeffrey Feltman, a veteran U.S. diplomat in the Middle East who was formerly ambassador to Lebanon and is currently the assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs.

Several media sources have revealed the details of a “well-organized” plan
to destroy Syria and create chaos in the country. The plan is said to be
drawn up by Bandar bin Sultan, the former Saudi ambassador to the United
States, in collaboration with the former U.S. Ambassador in Lebanon,
“Jeffrey Feltman” to overthrow the regime in Syria and to bring Syria back
to the “stone age”, according to the sources.
The lengthy and detailed plan, developed by Bandar bin Sultan and his
friend Feltman in 2008 with a funding reached $ 2 billion, consists of
many items and precise details which significantly intersect with the
incidents of disturbances the city of Daraa has recently witnessed.
According to sources, the plan “strategically” depended on the
exploitation of peoples’ legitimate desire in freedom, dignity and getting
rid of corruption and on the turning of these wishes into a revolt against
the regime through convincing the people that the road to reform from
within the regime is closed and the solution is an all-out revolution.
However, the plan tactically divided Syria into three areas (big cities,
small cities and villages), and the established five types of networks:
1- The “Fuel”: This network comprises educated and unemployed youths who
are to be linked in a decentralized way.
2- The “Thugs” network which includes outlaws and criminals from remote
areas, preferably non-Syrians.
3- The “Ethnic-Sectarian” network which consists of young people with
limited education representing ethnic communities that support or oppose
the president. They must be under the age of 22.
4- The “Media” network that comprises some leaders of civil society
institutions which have European funding not American one.
5- The “Capital” network which comprises traders, companies owners, banks
and commercial centers in Damascus, Aleppo and Homs only.
On how to use these networks and link between each others, the plan
The utilization of ambitious young people from the first network (Network
of fuel) through attractive phrases such as:
– You must have a voice
– Change can’t be achieved except by force
– Your future is yours to determine
– Your silence is the cause, and so on a*|.
The plan also provides for exploiting the skills of members of the second
network (Network of thugs) through:
– Training the thugs on professional killing including sniping and
murdering in cold blood.
– Training them on burning public buildings quickly by using flammable
– Training thugs on penetrating prisons police centers and security
According to the plan, members of the third network (sectarian ethnic
network) will be exploited by
– Feeding their strong feeling of support for or opposition against the
– Making them feel that their communities are threatened in all cases.
– Creating the concept of using excessive force against others.
– Convincing them of the idea that all who oppose them in anything are
– Leading them to a “state of color blindness”, so see only black and
-Exploitation their age and lack of knowledge of history and geography and
leading them to the brink of being ready to do anything.
The fourth network (media network) will also be exploited to serve the
plan. Members of this network will be recruited and their skills will be
enhanced to lead the (public opinion) through:
– Enabling them to communicate with the media by satellite phone that
can’t be monitored or cut off.
– Promoting them as nationalists and as individuals who don’t oppose to
the regime, but call for civil society.
– Qualifying cadres and training them on techniques of modern media such
as blogging and using the Internet which help them communicate with the
– Holding regular meetings with them and coordinating their efforts so
that no one will contradict the other.
The fifth network (capital network) will be exploited by using their fear
of their money being wasted, so the following must be achieved:
– Linking traders with trade officials in the European embassies under the
cover of trade relations.
– Holding luxurious parties to be attended by businessmen and during which
exclusively Arab Gulf deals and investments are to be made.
– Threatening them with certain sexual relations that are filmed for later
– Urging them against the regime and creating ideas such as: “The country
is yours and outsiders control you. The regime makes wealthy people on
your expense. You are the ones who build the country and others rule it.
Bashar al-Assad steals you via taxes and his supporters enjoy it. All your
businesses projects are a loss due to bribery and corruption. Your wealth
is threatened and must be transferred outside Syria because the regime
will collapse. We will make you rule the country after the collapse of the
The plan also contained in its “executive” chapter several scenarios, and
precise details of how to start and move, how networks will be exploited
and how to move forward.
According to executive chapter, the plan adopts the following stages:
1- If a targeted person from the Fuel Network responded, another stage
will immediately begin based on exploiting his/her need for money, so the
plan starts to:
– Provide him/her with small amounts of money.
– Ensure him/her a rented car, a cellular phone and Internet connection.
– Ask him/her to look for and bring other young people and use the same
method with them.
– When the number of young people reach 5000 in major cities and 1500 in
small cities and 500 in the villages, these people are asked to start to
express their desire in change and reform. At this very stage any talk
against any side of the people must be avoided. Not a word on sectarian,
partisan, rightist or leftist basis is allowed at this stage.
As this stage proceeds, objections by non-enthusiasts are to be faced by a
set of appropriate responses such as:
– If someone says there is a change, the response must be: “There is no
change at all. This is all a lie”
– If he says change is coming, then the response must be: “We have heard
this for more than 40 years”
– If anyone says that time is not suitable, the response must be: “So when
must we move. Are we going to move after 100 years”
– If one says that of our dignity lies in resisting America, the response
must be: “We have nothing to do with resistance, we want to live” and so
– A Moving group has to be pushed into streets inside already existing
gatherings such as in crowded markets, in mosques after prayers and in
narrow alleys. This group is divided into three rings: The shouters, the
photographers, and the hidden people. The shouters gather at the center
of the circle and begin chanting within the gathering. This ring is
surrounded by the ring of the hidden people, while the photographers’ ring
surrounds all. If anyone tried to disperse the shouters the hidden people
defend them under the pretext: ” let them speak”, and if no one try to
disperse them, the same ring of the hidden people assaults the shouters
and disperse them. In both cases,” We get an excellent picture for the
– In general, the authorities have to be provoked to be drawn into the use
of torture and cruelty. Here the authorities have to choose one of two
solutions; either to intervene or not to intervene.
– If the authorities don’t interfere, the number of enthusiasts will begin
to increase, because young people’s demands will attract a bigger number
of new enthusiasts who all, according to the plan, must not know anything
about the network link.
– If the authorities intervene and arrest one of the network members,
he/she must make himself/herself appear “innocent and pathetic”,
immediately change his/her stance and illusively promise the authorities
not to do that again. According to the plan he/she is to be completely
frozen to the final stage, but funding continues.
– If the authorities intervene and arrest one from outside the network,
the incident must fully be exploited by raising the level of demands. If
the security forces torture him/her, this will be better as it will help
in fueling the people’s feelings and here phrases linking torture to the
whole regime not only to the security forces are to be promoted and the
following statements and ideas are to be disseminated: “Have you seen
what happened to the poor man, this is what the president wants. It isn’t
fair, the man wants only to live. Do those traders only have the right to
have money. Is it a government or a group of thieves. The reason behind
this is the top leadership”, and so on …
2- When moves start in the streets, people must be instigated as fast as
possible to change their just demands into calls for the downfall of the
regime. Here the following must be implemented:
– The second network, “network of the thugs”, is introduced to the scene
immediately to attack all of the demonstrators and security personnel.
– Videos and photos for dramatic events which hurt religious and social
feelings, such as attacking women, preferably veiled ones, must be taken.
As a result alleged demonstrators shout general slogans and if they are
attacked by security forces it will be very excellent. But if they are
attacked by civilians, the group says “security forces dressed in civilian
clothes,” attacked the demonstrators. However, if no one attack them, a
member of the same group will attack the demonstrators, even if this leads
to minor injuries. Video shots must not last more than 20 seconds and they
must be taken from a very close position not from a far one.
– The rapid use of bloodshed, because of its significant impact on the
people. This includes the killing of a protester from outside the network,
preferably a youth from big and famous families, or a youth who has major
social ties or a highly educated person, especially a doctor, an engineer
or an intellectual. The killing must be committed rapidly by
snipers and with bullets of the same type used by police or security forces. This
stage also includes the killing of security personnel or guarding police.
Burning properties of the traders
who have been involved in the plan and
dragging them into a state of fear together with other economic figures
with the purpose of having influence on the lives of as many people as
– Provoking Bashar al-Assad loyalists and engaging them in polemics with
others, especially the Islamists,. Here the loyalist are to be accused of
being from the intelligence and that they are horns of the regime and
beneficiaries from the authority.
Creating mistrust and tension between the loyalists and the people,
telling about the near end of Bashar al-Assad and calling for random
supportive demonstrations and calls advocating slaughter, murder and
terrorism are planned to be launched. In turn, opponents keep calm and
delay any move till after the creation of sectarian and ethnic killing.
They have to be well-organized in their calls for political reform,
freedom, democracy and civil life.
– Foiling any attempt to attain political solutions by the regime through
burning symbols of power such as the Baath Party headquarters, police
stations, prisons and security forces centers in addition to distorting
Bashar al-Assad pictures.
3- The fourth network (The media) is introduced. The aim here is to link
Bashar al-Assad to all previous era and to devalue all his actions by
opening all the old files and holding the current regime responsible for
Bandar bin Sultan recognizes in his plan that Bashar Assad enjoys a real
popularity inside and outside Syria that should not be underestimated. He
believes that this popularity must be exploited and transformed from a
point of strength into a point of weakness through the use of the
enthusiasm of supporters against demonstrations.
To undermine the military, the government and the security system, Bandar
believes that they must be torn into sects, and here comes the role of the
third network the ( “ethnic-sectarian” network) taking into account the
neutralization of major doctrines like the Shafi’I and the Hanafi. This
will be done as follows:
– Urging each sect to commit horrible bloody massacres against violators.
These crimes must be filmed and posted to the media as soon as possible.
The start should be in places far from Damascus and there should not be a
lot of blood for fear that people may retreat.
and Tartous, people from the Alawite sect from the network slaughter youths from the Sunni sect, cut parts of their
bodies chant long live Bashar.
Salafis from the network attack Alawites’ villages, burn their
homes and terrorizing the people to leave their villages and chant “Death
to the “Nasirien” death to the enemies of the Sahaba”.
Arabs from the network
and make fun of the Kurds in a visual way without language and clear
enough to be understood by the Kurds without translation.
particularly Armenians are planned to be killed.
“snipers” from outside the city of Daraa kill young people from
the Jawabra and the Mahamid families without approaching anyone from the
Abazeed and the Masalmeh families.
In the city of Al-Boukamal,
the Shi’ites kill Sunnis and scream, “Oh Karbala, Oh Hussein”.
In Homs, Arabs kill Turkmen and loot their shops, particularly gold shops
and also kill Catholic Christians and Murshdis.
In Sewidaa, Druze members of the network kill a number of Christians in
surrounding villages and burning several churches
In Qamishli, Kurd members of the network avenge the killing of Kurds in
Hasaka. Some Armenians also kill Arab Muslims.
In Deir Ez-Zour, “snipers” from outside the city kill young people from
the Agidat and Bani Naeem tribes without approaching smaller tribes like
the “Rolla”, the “Jabour” or the “Shummar” and scream during the filming
in the name of the “Bokhabour and the “Mohassan”.
Bandar thinks that the regime as a whole will be busy trying to settle the
disputes between communities and ethnic groups. Bashar al-Assad will send
delegates from his government to resolve sectarian and ethnic differences
while Damascus will be empty of government pillars and here comes the turn
of Damascus where each minority group avenge and the city flares up from
all sides. This will be done as follows:
– The Christians in the east of Damascus kill Muslims who live among them
in areas like Qassaa and Bab Touma. They also kill the Druze in the
village of Jaramana.
– The Sunnis in the south of the city kill Shiites living among them in
the “Shaghour” and the “Muhajereen” areas.
– Salafis in the areas of “Duma” and “Darayya” burn the headquarters of
the municipality, courts and police stations.
– Alawites in the west of the city in “Mezze Jabal” area kill Sunnis who
live among them.
– Kurds in the north of the city in “Rukn Eddin” area attack Arabs from
Meanwhile, Bandar believes that the army will be divided, the security
systems and the government will collapse and Bashar will only have the
Republican Guard, which he will not be able to move because the army will
stand against him. This will make Bashar al-Assad’s presence in power the
cause of all problems, and here comes the role of the fifth network the
(network of the capital). The following has to be implemented:
– Holding a meeting between capital owners (businessmen) and leaders of
the army and security bodies as well as ministers from Damascus and
Aleppo. The plan is to convince them to abandon Bashar al-Assad promising
them survival after the end of the President’s rule.
– In case some businessmen refuse to cooperate, they are threatened of
canceling authorizations, of withdrawing investments and of sex scandals
if they are among those penetrated by sexual relations.
– In case some army leaders refuse, they are threatened of imprisonment or
assassination. If it is possible under a state of chaos, officers of high
ranks, not from Damascus or Aleppo, could be assassinated to terrorize
-A national council of businessmen, ministers and security chiefs must be
formed and recognized by the United States, France, Britain, Saudi Arabia
