Color Revolutionaries of the World, Unite! Hong Kong Protest Leader Pictured with White Helmets Boss
Friday September 13, 2019
Hong Kong protest figurehead Joshua Wong, who has been rocking up to "pro-democracy" meetings with various Western officials in recent weeks, has been spotted hanging out with the chairman of the White Helmets in Berlin.
Wong attended the "Bild 100" summer party in Berlin this week, where he seems to have bumped into White Helmets boss Raed Al Saleh. That’s a tad awkward, since the Syrian first-responders group operates solely in areas controlled by anti-government fighters and has been heavily suspected of links to Al Qaeda and US-sponsored jihadist militias – a fact that did not go unnoticed on Twitter.
There was another familiar face in the snaps, too: Mayor of Kiev Vitaly Klitschko, who was, for a time, himself a Western favorite when Ukraine was in Washington’s regime-change crosshairs.
But Wong has had some questionable high-level meetings, too. He also met German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas at the event – with that tete-a-tete quickly slammed by Beijing.
