Who is Mimi Al-Laham (Syrian Girl)?
Alex Jones loves her. YouTubers drool over her physical beauty. But there's also a faction who call her a misinformation agent, a mouthpiece for Assad and a government spy. So who is Syrian Girl?
As a burgeoning political and social media figure she has garnered nearly 1 million views on YouTube alone. Not to mention almost 11,000 followers on Faceook and about half that many on Twitter. Aside from her husky and deliberately labored speech, flavored with both Syrian and English (think England) affects, she is an ardent supporter of Syrian nationalism. That is, being no supporter of most existing world governments, a desire for Syria to remain autonomous from international influence.
When she appeared on the Australian television program "Insight" concerning the Syrian civil war, as viewed by Syrians living in that country, she was identified as a Sunni named Mimi Al-Laham. In her own words she's an Assad supporter insomuch as he's better than the Obama Regime backed alternative, the Muslim brotherhood, who are known al-Qaeda operatives and puppets of the New World Order. She's also for the reform process and surmises that an overthrow of Assad would lead to the destruction of Syria while gradual, democratically-inspired change would be a stabilizing force and the true will of her people.
A self-described member of the former bourgeois ruling-class that was deposed from power during the Bathist coup, she would like to run Syria herself one day. Her grandfather was in government and she believes that the only path for Syrian sovereignty is through diplomatic reform, believing that her country will become another Afghanistan if left to the desire of outside forces (NATO, Israel and the United States). A fact that has not evaded one of Syria's staunch enemies in Israel.
Outside of the media attention her personal life is a mystery. She is believed to be residing in Australia with her father.
