Bana: Twitter Prodigy or Propaganda tool?

Letter to Trump
I have included my commentary in parenthesis. Just as a refresher or if you haven’t heard about Bana before.. she opened her twitter account September 2016 and has 364,000+ followers and 671 tweets at this moment. She has called for WWIII, said that her dolls were being killed, and reassured the world that she was alive.. all while no one else in the entire area had any internet service. Ask Carla Ortiz. Oh and she is a 7 year old girl from Aleppo (or so they say lol).
Bana’s Letter to President Mr. Trump
January 27th, 2017
Dear Donald Trump (she must have missed the English class where they taught titles he isn’t a fellow 7 year old, he’s the POTUS Mr. would have been an appropriate option :-/)
My name is Bana Alabed and I am a seven years old Syrian girl from Aleppo. I lived in Syria my whole life before I left from besieged East Aleppo on December last year. I am part of the Syrian children who suffered from the Syrian war. (she meant invasion) But right now, I am having a peace in my new home of Turkey (yes we saw the pictures you took with Erdogan). In Aleppo, I was in school but soon it was destroyed because of the bombing (surprised she didn’t blame Assad or Putin). Some of my friends died. I am very sad about them and wish they were with me because we would play together by right now. I couldn’t play in Aleppo, it was the city of death. (because it was filled with Daesh, AlQaeda and foreign mercenary terrorists). Right now in Turkey, I can go out and enjoy. I can go to school although I didn’t yet. (How does she write almost perfect English having not been to school while in Syria? A fun fact, English is not taught till Middle school. If Bana is 7 that puts her at 2nd grade…4 years before she even learns English). That is why peace is important for everyone including you.
However, millions of Syrian children are not like me right now and suffering in different parts of Syria. They are suffering because of adult people. (I am glad she clarified that these adults are people, was thinking they were extra terrestrial for a moment).
I know you will be the president of America, so can you please save the children and people of Syria? You must do something for the children of Syria because they are like your children and deserve peace like you. (Aleppo has already been liberated! What exactly do they need saving from Bana?? They are back in school and returned to their normal lives, thanks to the government, Syrian Arab Army, and allies).
If you promise me you will do something for the children of Syria, I am already your new friend. (She already has Erdogan as a friend, does she want to have every president as her friend? At 7 I was riding my bike, skipping rope, and playing with mud. Bana is collecting presidents like I collected books).
I am looking forward to what you will do for the children of Syria. (Oh here’s an idea, how about getting the US Troops out of Syria, stop funding the parasitic Kurds and cut off all support for the terrorist groups that Obama generously funded. So that the SAA and ally’s can defeat the terrorists? Just an idea).
Some tweets:
In this tweet her mother Fatemah is giving the illusion that Bana died.. but then she later recanted her statement and said that it wasn’t Bana that died it was an unidentified friend.
She also tweeted Trump: I am sleeping now Mr @realdonaldtrump I give you until morning to tell me if you will help Syrian children or not. Bye (she can tweet while she sleeps that’s pretty impressive, and she is quite demanding with her deadline..almost threatening, respond or else…)
So some thoughts: First of all this account has been linked to an ip address in the UK and she was using a Turkish internet signal per reports. Secondly, I am surprised she didn’t mention Assad this time. Thirdly, what does she really want? What does “help the children” imply? End the war.. we all want that. So not sure what her objective is here other than publicity?  I can’t imagine what a toll this child solicitation for propaganda purposes will have on this little girl when she realizes what her parents made her do ? I have nothing against little Bana, I have an issue with all of the misleading lies that whoever is actually managing her account has told the world over the past almost 5 months. This was just part of the propaganda media campaign that was heavily funded and used to garner support for the terrorists that were affectionately called “moderate rebels” and the opposition by the US administration. Her account is in the same group of terrorist sympathizers such as Bilal Abdul Kareem and Linda Shamy. Who I wrote about more in this Article.
Here is another interview:

February 5th, 2017

Bana took part in an interview in Istanbul

Interviewer asks: “Do you like the food in Istanbul”?
Bana (7 year old twitter prodigy from Aleppo, that tweets daily about life in Aleppo in perfect English) responds: “Save…save the children in Aleppo.

Alrighty then…
