Jeffrey Feltman and Volker Perthes are the two weasels at the center of the plot to destroy Syria, its secular fabric, and its diverse peoples. They have helped to coordinate the policies of NATO, the Muslim Brotherhood, UN, U.S., and ISIS from behind the scenes.
An excerpt from, "Germany and the UNO against Syria" by Thierry Meyssan, Voltaire Network, January 28, 2016:
During the annual meeting of the Bilderberg Group, between the 5th and the 8th June 2008 - five years before the war - Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice gave a presentation which underlined the necessity of overthrowing the Syrian government. She was accompanied in this task by the Director of the Arab Reform Initiative, Bassma Kodmani (future founder of the Syrian National Council), and the Director of the SWP, Volker Perthes. The Bilderberg Group is a NATO initiative, and NATO directly handles security for these meetings.
According to a cable revealed by Wikileaks, Volker Perthes advised Ms. Rice concerning Iran. He believed that it would be dangerous to launch a military operation which could have unpredictable regional consequences - it was, however, more efficient to sabotage its economy. Volker Perthes’ advice was followed, in 2010, with the destruction of the software of Iranian nuclear plants by the Stuxnet virus.
In March 2011, Volker Perthes published an opinion column in the New York Times mocking President el-Assad’s speech to the People’s Chamber, during which the President had denounced a « conspiracy » against Syria . According to Perthes, the « revolution » was under way in Syria, and el-Assad had to go.
In the summer of 2011, the German government managed the breakthrough of the Muslim Brotherhood in Tunisia and Egypt. It noted that at the CIA’s demand, it hosted the international coordination of the Brotherhood in Aix-la-Chapelle. Berlin thus decided to support the Brotherhood everywhere they attained power, with the exception of Hamas in Palestine, in order to avoid annoying Israël. Under the influence of Volker Perthes, the German Minister for Foreign Affairs – at that time, Guido Westerwelle – persuaded himself that the Brotherhood was not « Islamist », but « guided by Islam ». He created a discussion forum with the « moderate Islamist movements” (sic), and a Task Force for Syria. As for Perthes, he organised a reception at the Ministry in July for a delegation from the Syrian opposition, led by Brother Radwan Ziadeh.
On the 6th October 2011, on the proposition of the State Department, Volker Perthes took part in the closed conference organised by the Turkish Industry & Business Association (Tusiad) and the private US intelligence company Stratfor in order to study Turkey’s energy options, and also the possible responses of eight other countries, including Germany. Present at the meeting were the ten top Turkish fortunes and Taner Yıldız – the Minister for Energy – the man who was supposed to help the Erdoğan family organise the funding of the war with oil stolen by Daesh.
In January 2012, Jeffrey Feltman – then State Department director for the Near East – asked Volker Perthes to direct the « The Day After » programme, which was tasked with putting together the next régime in Syria. These meetings were held over a six-month period and resulted specifically in a report which was made public after the Geneva Conference.

For the last three years, in violation of their own Charter, the United Nations, far from doing anything at all to help restore peace to Syria, and without presenting the slightest evidence, accuse the Syrian Arab Republic of having put down a revolution, of using chemical weapons against its own population, of the massive practice of torture, and of starving its people. Above all, it is dragging its feet on any peace initiative, leaving time for NATO and the Gulf Co-operation Council to pilot the overthrow of the régime by foreign mercenaries, in this instance the terrorist organisations al-Qaïda and Daesh.
While Western attention is caught by the rise of the so-called "Islamic State", the real story may be the dissolution of order in the Middle East. How do we understand ongoing political and geopolitical shifts in the region and the rise of new types of actors such as the "Islamic State"? And what, if anything, can and should Western powers do?
