The Man behind “Syria Revolution 2011″ Facebook-Page Speaks Out

Administrator of the “Syrian Revolution 2011 Facebook Page” Speaks Out. The official spokesman of the cite lives in Sweden and leads Sweden’s chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood according to the Syrian press. His name is فداء الدين طريف السيد عيسى  Fida’ ad-Din Tariif as-Sayyid `Isa, born 1985. Syria Revolution 2011 is the most important webpage of the Syria revolution. It has over 130,000 members. It is the major source of news and Youtube videos about the Syrian revolution.

An account of how the video was captured and what happened to the Syria Revolution 2011 webpage on Saturday 2011, sent to me by a friend.

On Saturday afternoon, the https://www.facebook.com/Syrian.Revolution suffered a sudden technical glitch. The main content page lost most of its content and its membership read only a few hundred rather than the nearly 138,000 members it had had.  Shortly after chrashing, a video appeared on the site.  In this video, a man – the administrator of the site – is seen angrily lashing out against those he believed had hacked the original Facebook page and taken it down.

Approximately 15 minutes later, a new message was loaded on the page. This message explained how it was an error by Facebook that brought the page down.  Shortly after the original page was restored along with the nearly 138,000 members who have joined.  The video accusing the Syrian authorities of having hacked the site was immediately taken down by the owner.  It has been sent to Syria Comment, which will presumably publish it.  The owner of the site “Syria Revolution 2011″ is clearly the same man that was mentioned by Champress a few weeks ago. In that article, it was revealed that the gentleman is based in Sweden and that he belongs to the Moslem Brotherhood.

فداء الدين طريف السيد عيسى من مواليد  عام 1985 ومنظم في جماعة “الاخوان المسلمين” ومدير لمكتبها في السويد ، وهو أحد أعضاء من يدعون اللجنة المؤقتة لإعلان دمشق المدعومة من جهات باتت معروفة بعداءها لـ سوريا

Here is another email about Fida’

All I know is that on March 22nd, Champress got it right when they said that he is the admin of the revolution page. Someone managed to get into his Facebook page and got all the photos in that article. Plus according to Champress:

ويظهر في صفحته الخاصة على الـ (فيس بوك) شعارات “للاخوان المسلمين” و صور تجمعه مع قيادات “للاخوان” في مصر ومحاضرات يلقيها على بعض الشباب في أماكن متفرقة.

وكان فداء بدأ بالظهورعلى بعض الأقنية الفضائية دون الكشف عن صورته ، ويحرص على تقديم نفسه بإسم حركي مختصر من اسمه الكامل ، وعمد بعد أخر ظهور له على قناة الـ بي بي سي والتي ظهر فيها بوجهه الحقيقي الى إزالة كافة صوره الموجودة على صفحته الشخصية.

ولدى الرجوع إلى بعض هذه اللقاءات يظهر فداء في لقاء مع قناة “بردى” الفضائية المعارضة في تاريخ 5 شباط الماضي و يتحدث عن دعواته للتظاهر ويزّل بكلمة “جماعتنا” المشهورة الاستخدام للدلالة على “الاخوان المسلمين” قبل أن يتراجع مخاطباً المذيع بأنه لا يريد أن تظهر الدعوة بأنها من “الجماعة” بل يريدها أن تظهر بأنها عفوية وشبابية لمخاطبة شرائح كبيرة من المجتمع السوري لجرها إلى التظاهر.

Also, on his Facebook profile he had photos of meetings he held with Egyptian brotherhood leaders, he had the logo of the brotherhood, but when he appeared on the BBC and exposed his identity, he removed all previous photos from his profile on FB.

Also, he spoke to Barada TV on Feb 5th and called upon the Syrian people to demonstrate in the streets using “جماعتنا” (which is normally used to imply the Muslim Brotherhood.

I don’t know much more, but I have the administrator’s original (first few weeks’) posts and they were big time ikhwan.

See the attached sample where one Egyptian comment says “Dear administrator: I wish you can reduce the heavy use of religious language, we want to attract the whole spectrum of people”

Also, you can check this Egyptian imam’s video (Fadel Suleiman) that the admin posted proudly

It says “to Syrian Alawites … join us or your children will pay a heavy price from now until eternity”

Exiles Shaping World’s Image of Syria Revolt
Rami Nakhle, a Syrian dissident hiding in Beirut, coordinated coverage of protests in Syria on Friday from his apartment.

….Mr. Monajed [A London based activist] estimates that 18 to 20 people are engaged in helping coordinate and cover the protests full time, though he boasts that he can find someone in his broader community to translate English to French at 4 a.m. He has a contact in every Syrian province, who in turn have their networks of 10 people. “And the regime can’t do anything about it,” he said.

Several say they relied on Syrian businessmen — abroad or in Syria — to finance one of their most impressive feats. After witnessing the Egyptian  government’s success in shutting down the Internet and mobile phone networks in January, they made a concerted attempt to circumvent a similar move by delivering satellite phones and modems across Syria.

Ammar Abdulhamid, an activist in Maryland, estimated that they delivered 100 satellite phones, along with hundreds of cameras and laptops…. Ammar’s site: Syrian Revolution Digest

Mr. Nakhle said he had urged people to use slogans that are free of the sectarian or religious bent popular with Islamic activists. “We have to worry about these people,” he admitted.

The unprecedented power of the long-distance activists to shape the message troubled Camille Otrakji, a Damascus-born political blogger who lives in Montreal. Where others see coordination, he sees manipulation, arguing that the activists’ mastery of image belies a revolt more sectarian than national, and deaf to the fears of minorities. “I call it deception,” said Mr. Otrakji, a somewhat lonely voice in the Internet tumult. “It’s like putting something on the wrapping of a product which has nothing to do with what’s inside. This is all being manipulated.”

I did check Mere Agnes out and she seems to be the real thing…I would love to visit and chat with her next time I am in the area. I do however take with caution her statement “Cette ingérence à caractère humanitaire ( ?) crée un précédent qui nous fait aussi peur que la guerre du Liban ou celle de l’Iraq. Elle élimine l’Etat de droit” : I hope that Mere Agnes is not suggesting that the “rule of the law” existed in the Iraq of Saddam or exists presently in Syria.
As far as your reference to the necessity that the minorities are facing to seek new alliances, I think it is realistic. It should therefore be looked upon objectively without investing it with too much emotions…minorities are minorities even within great democracies- just witness the situation of African Americans in present day U.S.A., without too much effort you can look at the prison population in that great democracy. So the hope is that the alliances will be driven by realism and a movement “towards” rather than simply a movement “away” from everything else that is available. Anyway, the situation of the minorities today is at least partially a reflection of the regime which has thrived upon sectarian principles, it is not a reflection of the ancient diversity and coexistence of the Syrian people ( yes, yes, there were moments of trouble historically but they also were primarily consequences of political manipulation). On the other hand, I ask myself where the ** did all those MBs spring from, I thought they were more or less eradicated by Hafez al Assad? I simply do not believe that Syria is infested with Salafis and Wahhabis, I know it is not; those are scare tactics of the Assad supporters to the tune…” if you get rid of me something terrible will happen to you”…guess what!! Something terrible has happened to us, that is your father and yourself, so please move”.
And finally, the realization has to dawn on everyone that the scenario is infinitely more complex than that of the simplistic good guys/bad guys ones, I do not believe for a second in the good will of the U.S., in the passive role of Israel, what greater maps are being drawn?, where will we all be when all is said and done?. I do not believe that the enemy of the Christian or the Alawi is the Muslim, there are enemies to the Syrian people who want us to believe that.

I can say this the minority of syria have already begun to feel the pressure but not from the govrement strange as it sounds but from the rebels. Iv see video clips on aljazera where the mobs of ppl have been shouting syria is Islamic etc i have relatives i syria and every time i talk to them they say that this ppl who call them self rebels have tryed to trouble for the christian minority in theirs home city. like yesterday one liquor store got burned down by som bearded men. I really hope this so called revolotion doesent end up as badly as it did in Iran. Where the country got mor religious and casted back in timelike 100 years. We se today that this new democratic libirated countrys of the arab spring have begun to walk a more religious path.
Syria’s regim today arent religious it is still considred to be the best country for a christian to live in in the all of the arab countrys.
