Al-Qaeda joins ranks of Syrian revolt backers


rt.com

The leader of Al-Qaeda has voiced his support for the Syrian uprising. He called on Muslims to join the opposition in Syria in their drive to oust President Bashar Assad.
In an eight-minute video address posted on Sunday on a jihadist website, Ayman al-Zawahri called on Muslims in Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan to aid the Syrian rebels.

I found this piece of news in RT and Reuters but none on our mainstream news networks, I wonder why?
The reality is that Assad is right when he says that the rebels are in fact terrorists. They have been killing christian syrians, and no one cares to report this either.
I suspect the Syrian population doesn't support this rebellion, even if they rightfully wish for a democratic government- most realize that those groups are backed by the West whose sole interest is a regime change, they don't care about who does this or how many civilians die.

And once again, the world will fail to realise that a middle eastern leader is speaking the truth.

Even shows one of the worst terrorist groups in the world believes Assad's position is untenable. He has to go before he bites off more than he can chew.

The Syrian population is very divided. What you have to understand is that the regime is essentially a minority government, with most of the ruling figures coming from the Alawite sect (although the state is for the most part secular).



Many Sunnis are rebelling not only against the heavy hand of the state, but also the 40-year rule of the Alawite Assad family and the prominent positions given to members of the minority Shia offshoot. The Alawites have long counted on Syria's other minorities for support, including Christian groups and Druze, in turn guaranteeing them religious freedom and protection as well as high-profile government jobs.




The government has played up the idea of its opponents as extremists. But reprisal attacks on Alawites in cities like Homs and Hama have added to the real fears of all minorities.


The situation in Syria at the moment is very complicated, it's not as black and white as either western media, RT or alternative news sources are making it out to be. There is genuine opposition to Assad and the regime in Syria, however there is also a sectarian element to the conflict.

Wait, I thought the US was at war with Al-CIAeda?

But didnt we just use them to overthrow Kadafi?

Libya: Al Qaeda flag flown above Benghazi courthouse


The flag, complete with Arabic script reading "there is no God but Allah" and full moon underneath, was seen flying above the Benghazi courthouse building, considered to be the seat of the revolution...

And now they're helping us oust another leader we dont like?

Those Al-CIAeda guys are alright!

It came from the Russian propaganda machine RT?

Discredit it, its misinformation to make western powers to think twice about supporting the rebels against the Russian backed Syrian government massacring its own people to hold on to power

Sure there is likely a small handful of ex Al Qaeda militants involved as both Syria & Libyan civilians joined the movement, as did civilians from every other middle eastern nation, but the agenda/motive is entirely different, we can't stamp Al Qaeda on everyone of the rebels simply because a handful in there are ex Al Qaeda its logical there will be, this is an uprising/revolution which began as a seed in Tunisia - Egypt and so on, "the Islamic awakening" it is a movement that is fighting for change against its dictators oppression, and now in Syria,

The only difference here is the Al Saad Syria government are key allies to both Iran & Russia, they have every right to be worried, as a not so compliant government may arise from the ashes, Iran would lose its only friend in the region, and you wonder why they're both sending in arms to kill its own?

Al qaeda have become a useful tool for western governments. They were embedded in the ranks during the Libya conflict, and our intelligence agencies armed them to the teeth to take out Gaddafi... The same thing is now happening in Syria.

I have never ascribed to the idea that al qaeda are CIA trained assets ect, I think they are who they say they are, and they have outsmarted our best people for over a decade' to the point that we actually need them now' oh the irony.... Their ultimate goal has always been an islamic revolution/reunification of the middle east, and between them and the insidious islamic brotherhood organisations i believe they will get it eventually. Maybe not a new caliphate, but something similar that is very hostile to the west and Israel... The war on terra has been lost

What like Gaddafi?

Funny there was no Al Qaeda to speak of in Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, and any other Middle East and North Africa country during there Revolutions, they all managed to step down peacefully with out bloodshed in a peaceful transition of power, "The Correct & Civilized Way"

Tell me if the CIA/Mi6 are supporting the rebels along with Turkey and other Middle Eastern nations whats the difference in that what Russia & Iran are doing Aiding a government to wrongfully kill its own? ever wondered why those rebels are now rebels? or do you think they just picked up a rifle and started shooting at there government? they are simply peaceful protesters who have been forced to fight when there Russian & Iranian backed governments decided to shot instead of listen & step down,

It should have been sorted out with a simple vote, or at the UN but Russia & China blocked that, instead of bloodshed, common sense has failed here through greed and refusal to step down, Why was there none of this bloodshed/civil war/rebels to speak of in ANY OTHER middle eastern nation which had an uprising/revolution?, OTHER then the ones which are ANTI WEST & firm allies of Russia & Iran?, those that was friends of the west managed a PEACEFUL transition... so why did the Syrian & Libyan leader not? and why did Russia & Iran not call for its leaders to do the right thing and step down? like the western world DID in the other middle eastern nations it has relations with?

Hmm i wonder why huh?

Reuters is a credible source. Gaddafi said from the start that the uprising in Libya was caused by Al Qaeda, and once he was dead, there was an Al Qaeda flag which was flying next to the new Libyan one, is that proof enough for you? Now you have Al Qaeda, the same terrorist organisation who allegedly staged the 911 attacks, supporting the uprising against Al-Assad, sound familiar?

What's worse, The allies (USA, Britain, Australia) are all supporting the uprising, which is supported by Al Qaeda, so we are allies with Al Qaeda in this matter, yet enemies in a Holy War. Things like this should not happen, and wouldn't happen if they took their Jihad seriously.

Edit: Considering the case in Libya, i have no doubts that there are terrorists and the like in Syria, especially after this announcement. They were there all along.

We could hit two birds with one stone, by working together to solve one problem Al-Qaeda could also weigh in on peace talks with the taliban and end the war in Afghanistan.

You do realise the Revolution was going on long before Gaddafi said that right? he called them rats then Al Qaeda then died, there was signs it was gathering momentum in Libya while the revolutions was ongoing in Tunisia & Egypt plenty of time to make up such a lie/plan should it have escalated like it did, Gaddafi said they was Al Qaeda after he started shooting them, so get your facts in order buddy...

Another thing, there was a recent case of a swastika ss flag next to US troops in Afghanistan, under your logic are we to believe all US troops are Nazi's now?, besides it would be quite easy for Gaddafi loyalists to go out and fake that, wouldn't it, lets be honest its probably high on the list of things to do



What's worse, The allies (USA, Britain, Australia) are all supporting the uprising


Whats worst? I'll tell you

We didn't have to in any other Middle Eastern country where there leaders decided to step down peacefully without the need for bloodshed attacking peaceful protesters, funny enough those were all governments the west did have relations with, how ever the ones we did not, such as Libya & Syria, who have relations with Iran & Russia... chose to kill those people to stay in power rather then step down, acceptable? acceptable to supply arms to government & regimes to massacre people who want more freedom & change? f**K em... there rats, kill all whose oppose us. yes we will arm you to do so to ensure a less compliant government to Tehran & Moscow doesn't gain power, lol

THAT IS WHAT UTTER WRONGNESS YOU SUPPORT MY FRIEND!, probably because you are so embroiled in your utter hatred towards the west you failed to see right & wrong as long as its anti west, who cares about those people who want change right? that is why we are supporting those poor people, because it is the right thing to do, it is not fair those people have had there wishes taken from them for change because one greedy man refused to step down and snuff there wishes out.

If you are so deluded you think the western world is behind the Middle Eastern uprisings then id ask you this my friend,

What would it take to convince millions & million to turn against there own governments that they're oh so very happy with? do you really believe these silly nonsense conspiracy's? think about it, its totally impossible, it would require fantastic god like magical powers to pull of, its not even close to possible, its not even a conspiracy, it is a dream ramblings of people who have a passion & hate for the western world, born out of jealousy and spite,

When will you realise, of course people who fought for Al Qaeda will be part of the Revolutions & uprisings they bloody well live there for god sake, and worst of all they have a brains, bad news for dictators doing a terrible job ruling his people with an iron fist... Also, are we going to totally ignore the fact, US soldiers supported & rallied on the streets during the Occupy movement? if Al Qaeda was to intervene because it disagreed with Obama ordering the shooting of those innocent peaceful occupy protesters, would they stop aiding those being shot at when Obama said the US army was behind those attacks that they didn't even start in the first place? simply because there was US troops in the movement?. NO...see how your BS lies falls apart under this reverse look at things?.. its flat out propaganda for morons who can't think for themselves i'm afraid, remember in both cases the protesters was shot at first

The UN & Arab league called for NATO intervention in Libya, because after 500.000 CIA/Mi6 agents infiltrated the middle east with there men in black flashy light things going door to door brainwashing.. they then went to hypnotise ONLY Gaddafi & Al-Assad, to commit genocide on there own people in order to get the UN/Arab Leagues backing, wow people are really gullible and stupid, the rest actually know what they're doing with there lies, spreading anti west hatred & propaganda

Russia & Iran are supporting and supplying Al-Assad weapons to kill his own people, END OFF!

This is what the Syrians have to say and this was from a Qatar foundation:






The majority of Syrians do not want Assad to resign and believe that the news about the protests in the country are exaggerated, according to a YouGov/Qatar Foundation poll on Syria commissioned for the Doha Debates that was published earlier this month. Atrocities have been carried out by both the Government and some of the armed protesters. In addition, Western, North African and Arab countries are funding, arming and training the armed opposition in Syria.
Some 55% of Syrian respondents do not believe President Assad should resign, whereas it was found that it was the vast majority of respondents across the region, 81%, who want him to do so.

Of the total respondents, 46% wanted President Assad to remain in power to prevent Syria becoming another Iraq, and half of the total (50%) think that the protests [in Syria] are part of a conspiracy by the US and the West.

Almost a third, 32%, of respondents from the Levant region believe that President Assad is the best president for Syria (the figure for Syria alone is not given).
