HE HAD just got married and his wife was about to give birth but this did not save Andrei Arbashe, a young Christian, from a horrific fate at the hands of rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s regime earlier this month.

“They beheaded him, cut him into pieces and fed him to the dogs,” said Agnes-Mariam de la Croix, mother superior of the Monastery of St James the Mutilated between Damascus and Homs.

Forget the familiar Arab spring narrative about down-trodden masses taking on the forces of evil: the Syrian conflict appears to have entered a darker phase in which the rebels are committing atrocities against innocent civilians. It does not bode well for peace.

The people who chopped up Arbashe did not seem to need much of a motive: his brother had apparently been overheard complaining about the rebels behaving like bandits.

Sister Agnes-Mariam, who has been…

Islam and Dajal

Islam and Dajal

We are all Muslims at the end of the day. We believe in the same God, follow the same Quran, follow the same prophet .. In the Quran it says “hold to the rope of Allah strongly and be Not divided” (The Quran) and in surah Al nisa it says “obey Allah and obey the Messenger”
Allah tells us that if anyone divides the religion of Islam into Sects and divides them The Prophet(pbuh) will have nothing to do with them, Allah will look after their affairs on the day of judgement. You need to ask yourself “what was the beloved Prophet?” He was a Muslim. He wasn’t “Shi’a” or Sunni and wasn’t divided into a sect when someone would ask he would say “I’m Muslim”.
Ending a Muslim life in the interests of the religion is prohibited in Islam ,also
taking one’s own life. Killing another person is an even greater sin than killing oneself;

The Muslim army is prohibited from killing other Muslims, as well as old men, women and children from among the unbelievers. In the Holy Quran is written: “Anyone who kills a believer deliberately will receive as his reward (a sentence) to live in Hell for ever. God will be angry with him and curse him, and prepare
dreadful torment for him” (4:93). The Prophet has also said about the
dhimmis (the non-Muslim citizens of the Muslim State): “One who kills
a man under covenant (i.e. a dhimmi) will not even smell the fragrance
of Paradise” (al-Bukhari and Abu Dawud)
http://www.english.moqawama.org/essaydetails.php?eid=21891&cid=269
“Do not enter any houses except your own
homes unless you are sure of their occupants’ consent” (24:27)

Muslims are enjoined to invite people to embrace
Islam and advance arguments in favor of it, they are not asked to
enforce this faith on them. No force will be applied in order to compel
them to accept Islam. Whoever accepts it he does so by his own choice.
Muslims will welcome such a convert to Islam with open arms and
admit him to their community with equal rights and privileges. But if
somebody does not accept Islam, Muslims will have to recognize and
respect his decision, and no moral, social or political pressure will be
put on him to change his mind.

Along with the freedom of conviction and freedom of conscience,
Islam has given the right to the individual that his religious sentiments
will be given due respect and nothing will be said or done which may
encroach upon this right. It has been ordained by God in the Holy
Quran: “Do not abuse those they appeal to instead of God” (6:108).
These instructions are not only limited to idols and deities, but they
also apply to the leaders or national heroes of the people. If a group of
people holds a conviction which according to you is wrong, and holds
certain persons in high esteem which according to you is not deserved
by them, then it will not be justified in Islam that you use abusive
language for them and thus injure their feelings. Islam does not prohibit
people from holding debate and discussion on religious matters, but it
wants that these discussions should be conducted in decency. “Do not
argue with the people of the Book unless it is in the politest manner”
(29:46)-says the Quran. This order is not merely limited to the people
of the Scriptures, but applies with equal force to those following other
faiths.

*****************************************************

In Islam, war is not the prerogative of the individual but of an established government. Only an established government can declare war. In other words, individuals can pray on their own, but they cannot wage wars of their own accord. Only when a war is declared by the ruling government, can the public join in and support it, and not before that. Islam does not sanction individual actions on this issue. Therefore no Non Governmental Organization or NGO can declare a war.

As a general principle, the Quran tells us that, even where an external attack is feared, the common man should not act independently, but should take the matter to the ruler, and then under his guidance take proper counter measures. (4:83).

The Hadith also states that ‘the ruler is a shield, fighting is done under him, and security is attained through him.’

This clearly shows that the decision to do battle and its planning are the tasks of an established government. The common man can play his role as need be under government orders, and not independently.

This Islamic principle shows that there is no room for non-state warfare, which is what we generally call guerilla war. A guerilla war is fought by individual organizations, not by the State. As far as the state is concerned, if it wants to wage a defensive war against any country it has first—in obedience to the Quran—to issue a proper declaration. Only then can it wage a lawful war (8:58). In Islam, there is only ‘declared’ war. Therefore, in accordance with this principle, no proxy war in Islam can be lawful.

Most Islamic actions are governed by certain conditions. The waging of war is also thus subject to certain principles, one being that, even when a defensive war has been declared by the State, it will be aimed only at the combatants. Targeting non-combatants will be unlawful. The Quran enjoins us not to do battle with those who are not at war. Such people have to be dealt with kindly and equitably. But you are free to do battle with those who are fighting against you. (60:8-9)

If, for instance, a Muslim state is at war with a particular nation, and this war is in conformance with Islamic principles, it should still not permit any destructive activities against non-combatants (civilians),Muslims are not permitted to commit suicidal bombings in order to destroy the enemy. Strapping explosives on to oneself and hurling oneself upon the civilian settlements of even those with whom one is at war, for the purpose of destroying the enemy, and in the process killing oneself deliberately, is totally un-Islamic. This can in no way be termed ‘Shahadah’ (martyrdom). According to Islam we can become martyrs, but we cannot court a martyr’s death deliberately.

It is true that jihad is one of the most important teachings of Islam. But jihad is not synonymous with war. In Islam another word is used for war and fighting. This word is ‘qital.’ When the Qur’an refers to war or fighting, it uses the word qital and not jihad.

Jihad literally means to strive or to struggle. So jihad actually means peaceful struggle, especially for da‘wah work. The Qur’an says:

Do great jihad with the help of the Qur’an. (25:52) not with your sword or gun!

Most migrants, who fled from the Syrian villages of Rabla and Kasir to al-Kah village in Lebanon, still fear media appearance. The threat and terror they witnessed lately by the so-called Free Syrian Army, and the kidnapping and murder practiced against them put them in a state of caution and fear from these acts.

295278_323895237725843_1446199450_n

The Christians of Rabla and Kasir refused to receive aid from the European Commission for Humanitarian Aid and treatment from the migrant clinic, since they consider Qatar the major funder of these centres and the armed terrorist groups who drove them unrightfully from their homes.

Qatar, in their opinion, is an accomplice in the vandalising and murder, so these migrants make do with the slight aid packages from Caritas organisation, the village’s Church, its municipality, and the benevolent from al-Kah residents.

Moreover, the number of Christian families who migrated to al-Kah village are estimated at about…

Well congratulations Messrs. Obama, Cameron and Hollande, and your Foreign Department sidekicks Hillary Clinton, Laurent Fabius and William Hague. Your terrorists in Syria have managed to use chemical weapons against government forces, something you were warning President Assad against doing. Well, well, how the tables turn.

As outed in this column several times, the attempts by the FUKUS Axis (France, UK, US) to blame the Syrian government for using chemical or biological weapons were thwarted, attempts made by these three terrorist-supporting pariahs in the international community to justify yet another illegal invasion for almost a year now. The sequel to the story is that their sweet pet terrorists have used chemical weapons, not the Government.

Remember “Obama” as he addressed “Assad”? Warning him not to use chemical weapons? Well he didn’t. The only thing the Syrian Armed Forced were doing was moving chemical weapons out of the…

terrorists use chemical weapons against Syrian forces-WANTED

*

Militants fighting against the Syrian government have used chemical weapons against the army in Daraya near the capital, Damascus, military sources say.

According to a commander of the Syrian Presidential Guard, at least seven Syrian soldiers were killed on Saturday after they were attacked by a chemical weapon which produced a toxic yellow gas.

The soldiers were reportedly killed within an hour after inhaling the gas.

Foreign-backed militants have repeatedly threatened to use chemical weapons against the army and pro-government civilians in recent days.

They have also threatened to contaminate Syria’s drinking water supply in a bid to kill all Alawite Shias and the supporters of President Bashar al-Assad.

The threat was made in a video posted on YouTube in which militants tested water contaminated with a lethal mixture on lab rabbits. The rabbits stopped breathing and their chests swelled shortly after drinking the poisoned water.

The militants had…

The Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has strongly condemned threats made by foreign-sponsored militants against two Syrian Christian towns, warning of a fresh wave of violence in the country.

pirhayati20121224055130030

“Such threats are contrary to the precepts of Islam which calls for tolerance, brotherhood and peace,” the 57-member body said in a statement on Sunday, AFP reported.

In a video message released on Saturday, Syrian armed groups threatened to attack Mharda and Sqilbiya towns in the central province of Hama if the residents do not expel government forces.

The OIC warned against the risks of “a slide into confessional conflict.”

Rashid Abul Fida, the head of the al-Ansar Brigade in Hama, made the threat.

Syria has been experiencing unrest since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the violence.

A recent UN report has revealed that militants from 29 countries have so far…

Syria: Islamist group frees U.S. journalists

Syria: Islamist group frees U.S. journalists

 

Good article about a laughable story:strange how the CIA warmongers get freed by terrorist while journalist like Anhar are being kidnapped to be executed!After all the reports about the misanthropic crimes of the so-called “Syrian rebels”, it was about time to report that these bunch of armed strangers only wants the best for the Syrian people and even for foreign correspondents. It is really funny if it would not be so shocking how the Western media became such a low-level propaganda tool. As stated, it is not comprehensible that this crew of NBC News was kidnapped by Assad`s thugs in this area of Syria near the border to Turkey. On the contrary, this story smells like a staged show.

The NBC correspondent Richard Engel said that his captors were “shabiha” (shabi7a) and thus, the militia of the government; although this is truly the false use of this word and the media seems to not know the real history. But the story by Richard Engel is becoming even stranger, even if one forgets about the situation in the Turkish-Syrian border region, when the NBC News correspondent says that the members of this “shabiha” militia were Shiites and no Alawi (Alawites).

It is absolutely comprehensible what the British reporter and journalist Lizzie Phelan wrote about this information:

NBC’s team in Syria has been released. Correspondent Richard Engel’s response to q.1 seems all fine but then from q.2 it just starts to get strange when he says his captors were “shabiha” (government militias) who are Shi’ite (and not Alawi – this is from their chief foreign correspondent who covered the entire war in Iraq) trained by Iranian Revolutionary Guards and somewhere in there he throws in the involvement of Hezbollah, I was almost waiting for him to say all the orders came from Fidel Castro. (Source)

Of course, the opponents of the Syrian government in Damascus and the president Bashar al-Assad are still presented as “rebels” although any objective reporting would already call them the militia of the West powers or NATO. Not to mention the reports about the Saudi criminals, Libyan thugs, and the arming of the NATO militia in Syria by Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

In addition to the financial support of Western governments for these strangers and religious fanatics as well as the support by propaganda headlines in mainstream media. And so on. There is a lot of evidence that the “Syrian rebels” are just thugs, Islamists and radical strangers, so-called cannon fodder, for the dubious goals of Western powers.

 

 

All who support the Syrian government or / and the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad are immediately denounced as Assad thugs and militia, inducing that al-Assad personally pays for all these groups and people – even for the people abroad who support the Syrian side and do not support the horrible French mandate flag, which is already a sign that this “revolution” stinks.

In the past week and earlier this week, it was already remarkable that the so-called journalists and Western mass media, which were brought into line, have already written about the defeat of al-Assad in Syria. Just because of already known statements by the Russian side and in order to maintain the propaganda and to boost the morality of the supporters of these Islamist gangs, although the situation on site tells another story.

syriansky 500x352 Syria: Islamist group frees U.S. journalists

Syrian Sky

The Western propaganda tools, the so-called free media, show all events and developments in recent days in the sense that the Syrian government in Damascus has already lost. You are able to read of headlines that Russia stops the support for the Syrian government and that Iran wants to force a so-called six-point plan on Assad. It is not reported, however, that both Russia and Iran want to find a political solution to the Syrian crisis in order to finally decrease the level of violence.

In fact, the situation of the population is intolerable in more and more regions of Syria, also due to the hypocritical sanctions of the West against Syria and the theft of goods and food by the foreign-backed “democratic rebels”. A lot of these incidents are reported by residents of Aleppo and other cities in Syria.

But instead of moving finally and to start to actually show an interest in a political solution, the West still maintains it strategy and thus, the West allows that the violence and terrorism is on-going in Syria and even continues. This is truly not a strategy of so-called democratic powers. This is just the known strategy of the imperialistic U.S. administration with its “Salvador option”, death squads and other misanthropic options in order to destabilize and destroy a country and they do not care about the population.

The Syrian Vice President Sharaa has again demanded steps for a political solution of the crisis in Syria, but the new and staged “Syrian” opposition committee under the leadership of al-Khatib has no interest in a political solution for Syria as long as they are not in power – due to the fact that they are only able to take the power in Syria by force, because the majority of the Syrian people still does not support this external staged opposition.

The staged opposition group that was established by the West in Doha, Qatar, and has been already recognized by over 100 countries as the sole and legitimate representative of the Syrian people, although the majority of the Syrian people do not support this staged opposition abroad, is just a puppet who is not able to act alone – it is dependent on the interest of the West and has to bow down before the war criminal Hillary Clinton.

Western governments and media always suggest that there is no alternative to a regime change in Syria, but if this is really the only option, this is never debated. Is there an alternative or any other way than to overthrow Bashar al-Assad or to push him out of his office by force? If the Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is again and again demonized as oppressor and the murderer of his own people, why does this not equally happen with the Islamists and terrorists who come from different countries to Syria just to carry out their so-called “jihad”?

If Bashar al-Assad is gone, what power will the staged external opposition, which is so celebrated by the West, considering that it is not even recognized by all opponents of al-Assad and the fact that the majority of the Syrian people oppose this group of Exiles and Islamists? How will the West deal with the previously supported Islamist groups such as the al-Nusra front, which was finally set on the list of terrorist organisations by the United States, while al-Khatib has requested the rehabilitation of the Islamist al-Nusra front?

syria gas station Syria: Islamist group frees U.S. journalists

Gas Station Syria

You see, it is quite an interesting show. The ones who are on the payroll of the United States are the good terrorists, rebels, while the others are the bad guys. It is a very schizophrenic policy, which will not lead to anything good.

Is Al-Khatib really the moderate Sunni who is able to bring together all the different groups and to bring peace? What happens to the religious minorities when radical Sunni forces get the shots? How will the West react when it sees that the so-called moderate Islamists (a contradiction in terms) are no longer controllable? Will the so-called allies of Syria – Russia, Iran and Hezbollah – really give in and let simply disappear their influence in the region?

After all, there are always efforts of the allies to bring peace to Syria, contrary to the Western powers. But the efforts do not really work due to the situation that some Gulf States like Saudi Arabia and Qatar are still flooding the Islamists and terrorists in Syria with money and weapons so that they are able to still perform their fight against the Syrian leadership and in order to strengthen their power and spread their radical dogma.

The situation in and around Syria is awkward and opaque. Individuals and groups that are supposed to care for a peaceful solution in Syria, always appear briefly in the media, just in order to then disappear from the press again. What was achieved by al-Brahimi, for example? Has he implemented anything? Is there a continuous exchange and discussion between the Syrian special envoy (some call him the special toy), the Damascus government and the strange exile opposition? Probably not.

About Syria, the development and the entanglements or crosslinks, which are kept hidden from the most ordinary citizens, there is hardly to say anything. Everything is uncertain and hardly predictable. The situation is able to escalate and it can trigger a real conflagration, even the next World War. One cannot say how the future will be after the fall of Assad and one is not able to say what will happen if Assad remains.

Hope is the last thing to die.

A humanitarian intervention in Syria? Humanitarian grounds had already been used in 1860 … precisely by France as a pretext to intervene militarily in Syria, then an Ottoman province. In this article, Geneva University scholar Pascal Herren lays bare the true intentions of France under Napoleon III, which were every bit as disreputable as those pursued under Sarkozy or Hollande. He also brings to light the dire consequences that befell the peoples of the region.

A humanitarian intervention in Syria is recurrently demanded; it should put an end to the suffering which the population has been exposed to since 2011 due to the struggles between the regime and the armed opposition. The main responsibility for these fights is attributed – rightly or wrongly – to the government.

So, this relief effort would involve overthrowing the current regime. It…

THE AQRAB MASSACRE

Village of Aqrab:
The village of Aqrab is an Alawite village between the coastal city of Tartus and the city of Hamah.

The “revolutionists for democracy” attacked the village that consists of 500 inhabitants and made a siege around it as a hostage demanding to free 5 of their leaders.
The government (that the media call brutal and hosting the friend of Hitler) accepted to free the 5 terrorist leaders to protect the civilians of this village.

After the government freed them, Clnton’s friends didn’t honor the agreement and freed 300 out of 500 while the other 200 people have been kidnapped and disappeared! The “revolutionists for democracy”looted and devastated the village before they’ve left it!

A neutral TV, Al-Mayadeen, directed b Ghassan Bin Jiddo (that Tunisian man who quit Aljazeera) did a report from a neighbor village where the freed 300 inhabitants are refugee. The women described the drama they lived. One said while she was crying that women had to collect rain drops for their babies because the “activists of human rights” prevented even water, electricity, fuel from the village.

As usual, many media reported about a “massacre committed by the regime” and if you ask the “Syrian coalition” they will cry for the children.

I am a pro-dictator parrot? well then see this British investigation from Aqrab. This time, this British reporter Alex Thomson made the investigation FROM INSIDE SYRIA, FROM THE LOCATION! NOT FROM VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE.

The Syria Chemical Weapons Saga: The Staging of a US-NATO Sponsored Humanitarian Disaster?

The Syria Chemical Weapons Saga: The Staging of a US-NATO Sponsored Humanitarian Disaster?

Modeled on the Saddam Hussein WMD narrative, the propaganda ploy concerning the alleged threat of Syria’s chemical weapons has been building up over several months.

The Western media suggests –in chorus and without evidence– that  a “frustrated” and “desperate” president Bashar al Assad is planning to use deadly chemical weapons against his own people. Last week, U.S. officials revealed to NBC News that “Syria’s military has loaded nerve-gas chemicals into bombs and are awaiting final orders from al-Assad”.

Western governments are now accusing Syria of planning a diabolical scheme on the orders of the Syrian head of State. Meanwhile, the media hype has gone into full gear. Fake reports on Syria’s WMD are funneled into the news chain, reminiscent of the months leading up to the March 2003 invasion of Iraq.

The evolving media consensus is that  “the regime of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad appears to be entering its twilight”  and that the “international community” has a responsibility to come to the rescue of the Syrian people to prevent the occurrence of a humanitarian disaster.

“…Fears are growing in the West that Syria will unleash chemical weapons in a last-ditch act of desperation”

Recent reports that the embattled government of Syria has begun preparations for the use of chemical weapons [against the Syrian people] . After two years of civil war and more than 40,000 deaths, events in Syria may be heading to a bloody crescendo.  (WBUR, December 11, 2012)

Accused: George Bush and Tony Blair who said today that Archbishop Tutu was wrong about the Iraq warThe antiwar critics have largely underscored the similarities with the Iraq WMD ploy, which consisted in accusing the government of Saddam Hussein of possessing Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).

The alleged WMD threat was then used as a justification to invade Iraq in March 2003. The WMD Iraq ploy was subsequently acknowledged in the wake of the invasion as an outright fabrication, with president George W. Bush and Prime Minister Tony Blair actually recognizing that it was a “big mistake”. In a recent statement Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu called  for ‘lying’ Blair and Bush to face trial in the Hague`s International Criminal Court

Syria versus Iraq

The Syria WMD saga is in marked contrast to that of Iraq. The objective is not to” justify” an all out humanitarian war on Syria, using chemical weapons as a pretext.

An examination of  allied military planning as well as the nature of US-NATO support to the opposition forces suggests a different course of action to that adopted in relation to Iraq (2003) and Libya (2011).

The purpose is indeed to demonize Bashar Al Assad but the objective at this stage is not the conduct of an all out “shock and awe” war on Syria, involving a full fledged air campaign. Such an action would, under present conditions, be a highly risky undertaking. Syria has advanced air defense capabilities, equipped with Russian Iskander missiles (see image) as well as significant ground forces. A Western military operation could also lead to a response from Russia, which has a naval base at the port city of Tartus in Southern Syria.

Moreover, Iranian forces from its revolutionary guards corps (IRGC) are present on the ground in Syria; Russian military advisers are involved in the training of the Syrian military.

In recent developments, Syria took delivery of the more advanced Russian Iskander missile system, the Mach 6-7,  in response to the deployment of US Made Patriot missiles in Turkey.  Syria already possesses the less advanced E-Series Iskander.  Syria is also equipped with the Russian ground to air defense missile system Pechora-2M.  (see video below)

Non-Conventional Warfare

At this juncture, despite US-NATO military superiority, an all out military operation, for the reasons mentioned above, is not contemplated.

Non-conventional warfare remains the chosen avenue. Reports confirm that NATO-led military operations would be largely in support of rebel forces, its command structure, communications systems, recruitment, training, the transfer to rebel forces of more advanced weapons. Part of this undertaking including the training of rebels is being carried by private mercenary companies.

A limited and selective air campaign in support of the rebels, using Syria’s chemical weapons bunker stockpiles as a pretext could be contemplated, but even this would be a risky undertaking given Syria’s air defense capabilities.

What was on the drawing board of a recent “Semi-Secret” Meeting in London, hosted by General Sir David Julian Richards, head of Britain’s Defense Staff  is a coordinated military agenda characterised by “air and naval support, plus military training for the opposition”.

The meeting in London included the participation of  the military chiefs of France, Turkey, Jordan, Qatar, the UAE and the US. No further details were made public (See Felicity Arbuthnot, Secret Meetings in London Plotting to Wage War on Syria without UN Authorization, Global Research, December 11, 2012

The thrust of this London gathering behind closed doors (reported on December 10, 2012) was to support a unified military command structure of opposition forces designed to “unify insurgent ranks” fighting government forces. In practice, this will require a renewed influx of mercenaries under the supervision of Western special forces which are already on the ground inside Syria.

Staging a Humanitarian Disaster?

The training component of  US-NATO action is of crucial importance. How does it relate to the Syria ‘chemical weapons’ issue?

The Western military alliance does not contemplate at this stage an all out war in response to Syria’s possession of chemical weapons. What is contemplated is the need to train the opposition rebels in the handling of chemical weapons.

This specialized training program which was confirmed is already ongoing, implemented with the support of specialized private mercenary and security companies on contract to the Pentagon. The United States and some European allies are using defense contractors to train Syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria, a senior U.S. official and several senior diplomats told CNN Sunday. ( CNN Report, December 9, 2012)

What is unfolding is a diabolical scenario –which is an integral part of military planning– namely a situation where opposition terrorists advised by Western defense contractors are actually in possession of chemical weapons.

This is not a rebel training exercise in non-proliferation. While president Obama states that “you will be held accountable” if “you” (meaning the Syrian government) use chemical weapons, what is contemplated as part of this covert operation is the possession of chemical weapons by the US-NATO sponsored terrorists, namely “by our” Al Qaeda affiliated operatives. 

The West claims that it is coming to the rescue of the Syrian people, whose lives are allegedly threatened by Bashar Al Assad.  The truth of the matter is that the Western military alliance is making chemical weapons available to its proxy “opposition” rebel forces.

The next phase of this diabolical scenario is that the chemical weapons could be used by the “opposition” terrorists against civilians, which could potentially lead an entire nation into a humanitarian disaster.

The Syria Chemical Weapons Pretext: Background

The Syria Chemical Weapons Saga was launched last Summer. In  early August, the Pentagon announced that it would send “small teams of special operations troops” into Syria with a view to destroying Syria’s Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD). These teams would in turn be supported by “precision air strikes”, namely air raids. An all out aerial attack was not contemplated. According to the Pentagon, the precision strikes were intended to “destroy the chemical weapons without dispersing them in the air”, a highly risky undertaking…

Ironically, at the outset of this diabolical plan, the US special forces incursion and air operation were not to be directed against the Syrian regime. In fact quite the opposite. The stated intent of the operation was to protect civilians against “opposition” rebels, rather than government forces.

No accusations were directed against President Bashar al Assad to the effect that he was underhandedly conniving to use WMD against Syrian civilians. According to the Pentagon, the operation was to ensure that Syria’s WMDs, which allegedly “are left unguarded” in military bunkers around the country do not fall in the hands of opposition jihadist rebels who are fighting government forces”:

Pentagon planners are more focused on protecting or destroying any Syrian stockpiles that are left unguarded and at risk [of] falling into the hands of rebel fighters or militias aligned with Al Qaeda, Hezbollah or other militant groups. ( U.S. has plans in place to secure Syria chemical arms – latimes.com, August 22, 2012

What the Pentagon was saying in August, was that these WMD could fall in the hands of  the “pro-democracy” freedom fighters recruited and financed by several of America’s close allies including Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, in liaison with Washington and NATO headquarters in Brussels.

In essence, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was refuting his own lies. In August he acknowledged the terrorist threat, now he is accusing Bashar Al Assad. Tacitly acknowledged by Washington, the majority of the Syrian freedom fighters are not only foreign mercenaries, they also belong to extremist Islamist groups, which are on the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations.

Israel is a partner in the Syria chemical weapons operation in liaison with NATO and the Pentagon.

Training Terrorists in the Use of Chemical Weapons

If the Obama administration were genuinely concerned in preventing these chemical weapons from falling “in the wrong hands” (as suggested by the Pentagon in August), why then are they now training “opposition rebels” –largely composed of Salafist and Al Qaeda affiliated fighters– to gain control over government stockpiles of chemical weapons?

The training [in chemical weapons], which is taking place in Jordan and Turkey, involves how to monitor and secure stockpiles and handle weapons sites and materials, according to the sources. Some of the contractors are on the ground in Syria working with the rebels to monitor some of the sites, according to one of the officials.

The nationality of the trainers was not disclosed, though the officials cautioned against assuming all are American. (CNN, December 09, 2012)

While the news report does not confirm the identity of the defense contractors, the official statements suggest a close contractual relationship to the Pentagon:

The US decision to hire unaccountable defense contractors to train Syrian rebels to handle stockpiles of chemical weapons seems dangerously irresponsible in the extreme, especially considering how inept Washington has so far been at making sure only trustworthy, secular rebels – to the extent they exist – receive their aid and the weapons that allies in the Gulf Arab states have been providing.

It also feeds accusations that the Syrian Foreign Ministry recently made that the US is working to frame the Syrian regime as having used or prepared for chemical warfare.

“What raises concerns about this news circulated by the media is our serious fear that some of the countries backing terrorism and terrorists might provide the armed terrorist groups with chemical weapons and claim that it was the Syrian government that used the weapons,” the letters said.”( John Glaser, Us Defense Contractors Training Syrian Rebels, Antiwar.com, December 10, 2012, See also CNN Report, December 9, 2012)

The central question is: what is the nature of this gruesome covert operation? Is the purpose of the US-NATO led operation to “prevent” or “encourage” the use of chemical weapons by the Free Syrian Army (FSA)?

The above report confirms that the US and NATO are training terrorists in the use of chemical weapons. Does this type of specialized training require the actual handling of toxic chemicals? In other words, is the Western military alliance, through its appointed defense contractors, making chemical weapons available to terrorists for training purposes?

Knowing that the Syrian insurgency is in large part made up of jihadists and Al Qaeda affiliated formations, this is hardly a means to “preventing” the actual use of chemical weapons against civilians. Moreover, amply documented, many of the “opposition” rebels who are receiving training in chemical weapons have committed countless atrocities directed against Syrian civilians, including the massacres in Houla:

“Terrorist groups may resort to using chemical weapons against the Syrian people… after having gained control of a toxic chlorine factory,” the foreign ministry said Saturday.” (Press TV, December 8, 2012)

Bear in mind, however, that the use of chemical weapons by opposition forces does not require that the rebels actually secure control over government stockpiles. Chemical weapons can easily be made available (from Western stockpiles) to the defense contractors involved in the specialized chemical weapons training programs.

Needless to say, the chemical weapons training and the involvement of private mercenary outfits on contract to NATO and the Pentagon, increase the risk; they create conditions which favor the use of chemical weapons by opposition forces, thereby potentially triggering a nationwide humanitarian disaster.

The US-NATO coalition has clarified at its “semi-secret” meeting in London (reported on December 10), however, that it does not contemplate “boots on the ground”. The special forces will be working with the opposition insurgency against government forces.

In the absence of an all out US-NATO military operation, the focus is on non-conventional warfare. In this context, one of  the diabolical “options on the table” is to create conditions whereby chemical weapons “fall in the hands” of the terrorists thereby potentially triggering a nationwide humanitarian disaster.

While this option would not require US-NATO military intervention, the humanitarian catastrophe would set the stage for the collapse of the Syrian government, namely the long sought objective of “regime change”.

The Libya or Iraq model is not an option. The strategic choice of the Western military alliance points to the staging of a humanitarian catastrophe?

In the logic of war propaganda and media disinformation, the deaths of civilians resulting from the use of chemical weapons would be blamed on President Bashar Al Assad, with a view to enforcing subsequent actions by the US-NATO military alliance. .

How can we ensure that this gruesome and diabolical option be thwarted and definitively shelved? This issue must be brought into the open. Public opinion must be mobilized against the US-NATO led war.

Obama has now officially recognised the very same Terrorists group that he helped to create as the official government for the Syrian People.  The very same group that has been killing all the innocent Syrian people. What right has he got to tell the Syrian people who they should support. It is up to the Syrians who they choose to lead them not the bloody USA. Or is this a new kind of democracy we have not heard of before.

We now have all the enemies of Syria led by Clinton and Obama meeting again in Morocco to once again, work on new ways to overthrow Bashar Al Assad. All organised by the FSA which was created by Robert Ford and Hillary Clinton.

Bashar’s father Hafez al-Assad was brutal but never used chemical arms. And do you know which was the first army to use gas in the Middle East?

by Robert Fisk

The bigger the lie the more people will believe it. We all know who said that – but it still works. Bashar al-Assad has chemical weapons. He may use them against his own Syrian people. If he does, the West will respond. We heard all this stuff last year – and Assad’s regime repeatedly said that if – if  – it had chemical weapons, it would never use them against Syrians.

A mortar attack by Syrian rebels on a school near Damascus has reportedly killed 29 students and a teacher,local SANA news agency reported.

Earlier reports by a local TV broadcaster said that eight students and a teacher were killed in the attack on Bteiha School in the Wafideen camp, about 20 kilometers northeast of Damascus.

The Wafideen camp is home to some 25,000 people forced out of the Golan Heights, which has been occupied by Israel since 1967.

Although the attack was confirmed by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the identity of the attackers remains unknown. Syria’s state news agency reported that an unspecified group of rebels shelled the school.

“They were killed by a mortar launched by terrorists,” the broadcaster said, referring to the rebels fighting the pro-government forces.

Syrian mercenary terriorists arsenal includes up to 40 MANPADS provided by Qatar and Saudis

Based on an article from Washington Post on November 28, 2012, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have provided extensive help for Syria’s terrorists in recent months, providing money and weapons.

30 to 40 MANPADS (Man-portable air-defense systems) are in the hands of mercenaries and terrorists groups, as al-Qaeda and FSA, is suggested by regional intelligence services.

“The proliferation of manpads in Syria is a concern because of the danger that they will be acquired by terrorists or other armed groups and used against civilian aircraft,” said Matt Schroeder, a senior analyst for the Federation of American Scientists in Washington.

“The small monarchy in the Persian Gulf gave these weapons to armed groups in Syria through the border with Turkey.” Said the newspaper.
