Most of Assad’s Western apologists have a presence only on Twitter and 
obscure websites like 21st Century Wire (a website founded by a former 
editor of American conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’s Infowars), yet it 
would be foolish to disregard them. The work of this small group is also 
spread by a spectrum of far-left, anti-West conspiracy theorists; 
anti-Semites; supporters of Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah; libertarians; 
and far-right groups. At their core are Beeley, the daughter of a 
British diplomat; a Canadian activist named Eva Bartlett; the 
Hezbollah-friendly commentator Sharmine Narwani; and Max Blumenthal, the 
son of the former Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal.
