Jabhat al-Nusra Shaikh Promises to Decapitate Every Oppressive Arab Leader - Syria Comment

Jabhat al-Nusra Shaikh Promises to Decapitate Every Oppressive Arab Leader

This Jabhat al-Nusra shaikh gives a speech, while standing above the decapitated body of a Syrian officer.

The slain officer commanded the 38th brigade, which was stationed at Saida very close to Deraa near the Jordanian border. Al-Nusra defeated the brigade a week ago. Here is the translation of the Shaikh’s triumphant speech warning all presidents, kings, amirs, security officials and military officers of the oppressive Arab regimes that they will be killed and abased in the same fashion. The free Arab and Muslim people are on the march and will not be satisfied until they have slain their oppressors. It gives interesting insight into Jabhat al Nusra rhetoric and stands as a warning to Arab politicians and security chieftains in generally. The shaikh reminds us that al-Nusra has far reaching plans for the region. It is not clear if the Shaikh is Syrian. He uses the word “Generalat” for generals, which is not Syrian. He also refers to a military rank as “musheer”. Syrians don’t use this rank much at all.

Here’s the translation of the video (by A.N. to whom I am very grateful)

The Nusra fighter starts by quoting Surat At-Tawbah [14-15]:

Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people. And remove the fury in the believers’ hearts. And Allah turns in forgiveness to whom He wills; and Allah is Knowing and Wise. (Sahih international translation)

O’ Tyrants of the world, our Arab world especially. This is the fate of every arrogant, unjust, spoiled and damned tyrant [as he points to the beheaded body]

This is the fate of the ruling generals of the Arab world, in armies and in what is falsely and fraudulently labeled “security systems”, when in reality its a system of torture, injustice and tyranny

This is their fate; They get their heads chopped off and stepped on along with their titles and rank.

Al Moushir, Al Fariq, al Liwaa, al Amid, al Akid, al Moukadam, al Raed and all the ranks are under our feet. Thanks to Allah

This is the fate of every tyrant, oppressor criminal, every enemy of Allah, every enemy of Islam and Muslims and every enemy of jihad and the mujaheddin.

This is their fate; They get their heads chopped off and stepped on along with their ranks, medals, ribbons, looks and pictures, if Allah wills it [inshallah]

This is their punishment, humiliations and disgrace and it will be more disgraceful in the afterlife and they won’t be saved, if Allah wills it.

This is the fate of all the tyrants and all tyrannical idol worshiper, ignorant, infidel, polytheistic, criminal, corruptor governments, rulers and regimes.

This is your fate, to the end, to the disgraceful death in life and to the fires of hell in the afterlife Damn their fate. All of them, the generals and officers in the armies and security systems of the tyrants, as well as their governments and if Allah wills it, to their Presidents, Kings and Emirs, if Allah wills it….

Soon, they will be defeated, they will be defeated, they will be defeated. And glory to Allah and his prophets and the believers. And glory to the mujaheddin in the name Allah and glory to Islam and Muslims

And shame and disgrace on the ignorant worshipers of idols, the criminals, the unjust and the corruptors. The disgrace and shame and disappointment and the fire of hell in the afterlife, if Allah wills it, the fire of hell to all of them. Their ranks and their salaries won’t help them there, nor will their medals or ribbons or looks or pictures and nor all the commands and guards and bodyguards. No one will help them and nothing if Allah wills it. Your God is on the lookout, and the Soldiers of Allah everywhere are on the lookout for every unjust criminal tyrant, if Allah wills it.

And they will receive the fate as this unjust criminal corruptor [points at body], the damned Amid Mahmoud Darwish, if Allah wills it, and if Allah wills it, it will happen to all the unjust generals in the Arab armies and its security systems, the criminals and corruptors. This is their fate and to hell with them….

——————————————————————-
Another commentator‘s video, shows an interview with supposed FSA commander on an FSA-related channel, he’s being interviewed to confirm news he had released earlier, about the possible death of Bashar al Assad. He’s asked to confirm and he indeed confirms the news, saying an officer in the Iranian revolutionary guard had shot him, he knows this through an “honorable” officer they have planted inside the presidential palace.

It seems to be untrue and can be easily debunked, so why use it?

In this video, a group of Syrian soldiers are preparing for Iftar during the month of Ramadan. According to the cameraman, they are all planning to desert soon. He highlights their military style shorts along with other evidence to prove their identity.

As the camera moves inside their room we can see that they have a TV set. The cameraman points at the TV screen showing a stream of army soldiers declaring their desertion , they point at the screen and say that that’s going to be them soon.

That obvious fictitious piece of propaganda is aimed directly at Syrian army soldiers who don’t have access to anything but these channels along with the already discredited state run media. Its a media war as well.

News Round Up

Muaz al-Khatib Condemns Extremists in Syria and States who Support Them
Statement broadcast live on Al Jazeera by Muaz al-Khatib – English translation:

On the subject of terrorism: Oh brothers, we are against every group, every idea, and every weapon that wants to destroy the social fabric of Syria. We are against every Takfiri idea, to be frank. We are against any idea that calls for blood, and that carries its ideas to the people with steel and fire, by using terrorism and compulsion. The holy Quran states “Let there be no compulsion in religion.” We are an open and tolerant society, and these ideas cannot exist among us.

However, we will not allow the exploitation of the issue over and over again, as was done with the ploy of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq which destroyed Iraq. We will not allow nor accept the presence of extremist groups in Syria to be used as a ploy to destroy Syria. The blood of the Syrian people is more precious than all foreign statements, and the decision the Syrian people make will be made by the Syrian people alone.

In regards to those groups that carry alien and extremist views, we say to those states that support them with hundreds of millions of dollars rather than supporting our people, withdraw your groups, there will be no terrorists amongst our people.

The blood of people is more precious than anything. There are youth as young as flowers that are being pushed to our country so that their country can get rid of them. I’m speaking frankly now. There are innocent, devout and pure people who are severely dedicated, who put their souls in their palms for the sake of defending this great, oppressed people. There are states that spend hundreds of millions of dollars in order to send these people to Syria for the purpose of getting rid of them, not for the love of Syria nor for the love of Jihad.

“On the Jabhat an-Nusra vs. Kata’ib al-Farouq fitna” by Shami Witness on pietervanostaeyen

Very interesting take on the infighting between these two major militias in Raqqa and beyond

Katībat al-Muhājirīn ~ The Foreigner’s Brigade in Syria,
by pietervanostaeyen

The group is active in the Lattakia province on the coastline of Syria. The ultimate goal of the group after the liberation of Syria from the al-Assad regime is the establishment of an Islamic State in the Levant….

As for the outcome of the Syrian war, the group shares the (widely spread) idea that Judgement Day is close and that the Mahdī (the Messias) will descend from heaven via the White Minaret of the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus.

In “liberated” areas the group installed Sharī’a courts in order to provide some justice to the inhabitants. This tactic is a known one, as recently Jabhat an-Nusra and the Syrian Islamic Front established Islamic jurisprudence throughout ar-Raqqa province in Northern Syria.

Syrian Financial Capital’s Loss Is Turkey’s Gain
by Deborah Amos
March 29, 2013

Official data from the Turkish banking agency shows that Syrians have deposited almost $4 billion in Turkish banks…For now, Aleppo’s loss is Turkey’s economic gain, certainly in Gaziantep, a city with historical links to Syria. In Ottoman times, Gaziantep was part of Aleppo province.

And once again, the Turkish border city is intertwined with Syria. The Sanko Park mall was built a few years ago to cater to Syrians who easily crossed the border to shop on weekends. Now, more than 30,000 Syrian businessmen have come to Turkey to escape the war — attracted by government policies that allow them to open factories and offices and make lucrative deals, said Barazi, the furniture store owner.

Can Aleppo recover if the business community stays in Gaziantep?

Syria’s Kurds, deeply divided, may determine the war’s outcome

Syria Analysis: International Aid Fuels Key Insurgent Victories in South EA Worldview

Today, insurgents from the Dawn of Islam Brigade captured several key checkpoints across a town named Dael (often written Da’el) in Daraa Province (map). There are reports that the fighters have control of the entire town.

Dael’s fall is significant. It may be the defining example of how the international effort to give military assistance to the rebels, led by Saudi Arabia and the US, is rapidly changing the face of the war.

Control of Daraa Province gives the rebels access to Syria’s border with Jordan, from where outside forces are providing military assistance.

Lawlessness Spreading in Rebel-held Syria, Widespread looting, crime running rampant and rebel factions fighting among themselves – VOA

Rebuff of missile request helps Assad – Syria opposition leader
By Yara Bayoumy and William Maclean

DOHA (Reuters) – The refusal of international powers to provide Patriot missile support for rebel-held areas of northern Syria sends a message to President Bashar al-Assad to “do what you want”, Syrian opposition leader Moaz Alkhatib said on Wednesday

Alkhatib, a popular figure in the opposition, also said he would not rescind his resignation as leader of the main anti-Assad alliance but he would still perform leadership duties for the time being.

NATO said on Tuesday it had no intention of intervening militarily in Syria after Alkhatib said he had asked the United States to use Patriot missiles to protect rebel-held areas from Assad’s air power.

“Yesterday I was really surprised by the comment issued from the White House that it was not possible to increase the range of the Patriot missiles to protect the Syrian people,” Alkhatib told Reuters in an interview.

“I’m scared that this will be a message to the Syrian regime telling it ‘Do what you want’.”

Asked about his resignation on Sunday as leader of the rebel coalition – which he has said was motivated mainly by frustration at Western reluctance to increase support for the opposition – he said: “I have given my resignation and I have not withdrawn it. But I have to continue my duties until the general committee meets.”

Meanwhile, Assad sent an appeal to the BRICS economic forum, meeting in South Africa, for help in ending the conflict in Syria. In a letter to the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa), Assad said Syria is being subjected to “acts of terrorism backed by Arab, regional and Western nations.”

A Two-Track Solution to the Syrian Crisis By Edward Djerejian | Asharq Alawsat

By Syrian-Kurdish writer, Baderkhan Ali, www.correspondents.org

Many Syrians in the diaspora will present, if not exactly a rose tinted view of the Syrian revolution, then certainly one that continues to cling to the hopes and…

Before the Syrian revolution, the demands of the Syrian Kurdish political movement were generally to give Kurdish their legitimate rights within Syria. And besides talking about injustices the Kurds had suffered at the hands of the Syrian regime – such as the fact that they were not allowed Syrian nationality – they usually stressed that they didn’t want to secede from the country.

However after the revolution began, a coalition of Kurdish groups began to demand the right to self determination within Syria; that led to a call for federalism and their right to become a federal state.

I think there’s a perception currently that this is a good time for Syria’s Kurds to make as many demands as possible, especially after the al-Assad regime is gone. But I think that’s too easy. I think there are plenty of challenges that haven’t been considered – such as, for instance, what part Syria’s Kurds will play in the Syrian government after the revolution, what part they’ll play in selecting new leaders – that sort of thing.

Room for Debate: What Can Obama Accomplish in the Middle East? By Several Writers | The New York Times

Why Stay in the Middle East?
by Leon Hadar, The National Interest | March 27, 2013

Bashing the critics of their foreign-policy agenda as “isolationists” hasbecome the last refuge of military interventionists and global crusaders.The tactic helps sidetrack the debate by putting the onus on theiropponents—those skeptical of regime change here, there and everywhere—todisprove the charge that they want Americans to shun the rest of the world.

And now proponents of maintaining American military hegemony in the MiddleEast have been applying a similar technique, accusing those who call for adebate on U.S. interests and policies in that region of advocating retreat and appeasement.Like the accusation of “isolationism,” the suggestion that a reassessment of current U.S. policies in the Middle East amounts to geostrategic retrenchment is part of an effort to shut down debate and maintain the status quo. But questioning the dominant U.S. Middle East paradigm, which assumes that Americans have the interest and the obligation to secure a dominant political-military status in the region, now goes beyond strategic and economic calculations being debated by foreign-policy wonks in Washington.

Most Americans have only basic knowledge about the Middle East and U.S. interests there, beyond words that trigger a visceral fear (“oil” and “Israel” and “terrorism”). But most of them are now telling pollsters that they want to see U.S. troops withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan as soon as possible, are opposed to new U.S.-led regime change and nation building in the Middle East, and are skeptical about the utility of Washington taking charge of the Israeli-Palestinian “peace  process.”Indeed, you don’t have to be a deep strategic thinker to conclude that the U.S. invasion of Iraq was a major military and diplomatic fiasco (no more Iraqs, please); that Washington exerts very little influence on the political weather (where it’s “spring” or “winter”) in the Arab World, a place where they lost that loving feeling for America a long time ago; or that Israelis and Palestinians are not going to live in peace and harmony anytime soon, even if President Obama would spend the rest of his term engaged in diplomatic psychotherapy sessions with them at Camp David.

It is becoming quite obvious to most Americans that sustaining the foundations of the Pax Americana in the Middle East is no longercost-effective. Especially at a time when many members of the middle class have yet to recover from the economic devastation of the Great Recession and their representatives in Washington cannot agree on how to manage the ballooning federal deficit.Reversing the classic model of foreign-policy making (leaders decide and then the public follows), leaders and the experts in Washington have been…

This new approach must encourage regional powers like Turkey, Egypt, Iran, the Arab Gulf States and Israel to operate under the assumption that the United States would not be there to micromanage the balance of power in the region. It also should provide incentives for Washington’s European allies to protect their interests in a region that is after all in their strategic backyard.Moreover, the U.S. economy has never been dependent on oil imports from the Middle East (it now receives about 14 percent of its energy supplies from the region). There is no reason why America should continue to spend its resources to provide economic competitors like China with free military protection for access to Middle Eastern oil.Israel would also have to adjust to the new realities of U.S. power in the Middle East. Israelis need to recognize that Washington would not be able to bail them out if and when they behave irresponsibly: U.S. support cannot be a substitute for reaching an agreement with the Palestinians and being integrated into the Middle East.The United States could continue to act as the “balancer of last resort” in the Middle East, working together with regional and global powers to help strengthen stability and promote economic prosperity in the region. But it cannot and should not sustain the current status quo there anymore.*

This is the culmination of the regime strategy to imprison or kill any people attempting to create a secular and liberal party or movement. What did they expect will grow instead if not Islamism, especially after the regime glorified the Islamism of Hezbollah and Iran and helped Islmasits in Iraq.

The strategy of the Arab dictators including Assad and Mubarak has always been to allow only the Islamists to flourish so that they can tell the world: You are stuck with us and you better make sure we do not fall because the alternative is Islamists. Well, that strategy worked for a long time until it stopped working. If you pursue a cynical strategy aimed at subjugating your people, do not expect people to buy into your lame excuses when the strategy does not work anymore.

Of course the Islamists are bad but only Assad is to blame for not allowing other alternatives to emerge.

PRAGUE, (SANA)- Ex-CNN reporter Amber Lyon revealed that during her work for the channel she received orders to send false news and exclude some others which the US administration did not favor with the aim to create a public opinion in favor of launching an aggression on Iran and Syria.

Lyon was quoted by the Slovak main news website as saying that the mainstream US media outlets intentionally work to create a propaganda against Iran to garner public opinion’s support for a military invasion against it.

She revealed that the scenario used before launching the war on Iraq is being prepared to be repeated where Iran and Syria are now being subject to constant ‘demonization’.

women rights is a crucial issue that will determine whether new regimes are an improvement over secular dictatorships or not.
women status in arab countries where islamists are either in charge or gaining influence:

Egypt:
Women stood shoulder to shoulder with men in Tahrir Square in 2011. Now they are back on the streets, opposing a new constitution that sweeps away their rights and opens the way for girls of 13 to be married. And in Cairo’s slums, life grows harder as the gulf between the sexes widens

Libya:
A guarantee of equality has been removed from the new constitution written after the revolution in 2011. There has been a rise in sexual assaults on the streets. Amnesty International claims discrimination against women “remains in law and practice”.

Yemen:
Women were prominent during the 2011 uprisings but demonstrators today segregate themselves by gender. Discrimination is still enshrined in law. A quota of 30% for women in jobs in state agencies has been proposed but not yet debated. Child marriage remains legal with 52% of women marrying under 18.

Morocco:
Reforms promised by King Mohammed VI are inching forward. A law that allows rapists to escape jail if they marry their victim is expected to be amended this year. Child marriage is illegal but has been on the rise over the last two years and there are moves to reduce the legal age from 18 to 16. There is only one female minister.

Tunisia:
Women’s legal rights have not changed since the revolution in 2010-11 but it took street protests before the new constitution was rewritten to enshrine full equality. The ruling Islamist Ennahda party has 42 women among its 89 MPs and only 3% of teenage girls are married. Some are worried about a rise in hardline conservatism

So what about the pedigree of Bashar Assad and his brother Maher? Embarrassing really. The coarse breeding, social marginality and criminal genes are there in their faces, poor way they speak and pinheaded public conduct.

Tara and all other anti regime Syrians,
You have the right to denounce the regime and Assad mafia 12 times a day if you want, this regime has very few friends because of what it did to Syrians, but please accept the fact that being anti Assad does not mean accepting nusra thugs and their terrorist friends , many of you have denounced those thugs but unfortunately there are still Syrians who support them in one way or the other. Give me an FSA that is an army for all Syrians and want to protect Syrians and I will support them with actions not words. The revolution is finished,many are still denying that, it is now a war that feeds on Syrians , the fire is ignited by the regime and now maintained by foreign powers and militants from all sides, I see little hope for a political solution but a real chance of partition and somalization of Syria, this is not what most Syrians bargained and died for. The regime lost most of its teeth and will not be able to rule Syria even if they win the war , but for Syria to remain in one piece the foreign jihadists and Islamist terrorists must be expelled or confronted by all,including the FSA, those criminals never believed in the concept of a state, a government or a pleural society, if they win you will remember the ” good old days” of the Assad mafia where as bad as things were, people were still able to send their kids to school, go to work and expect to see their children alive at the dinner table. Those who say that ending the war and fighting foreign terrorists equal bringing Assad mafia back are lying to you, Syrians will never go back to the pre 2011 era, regime supporters know that , you should too, the regime gave Syria on a silver plate to jihadists when it eliminated secular opposition and allowed regime thugs to treat the country as a family business, we are now harvesting what Assads and Makhloufs planted, our Israeli and Jewish posters here spoke the truth about the Assad mafia but هي كلمة حق اريد بها باطل

GHUFRAN #26,

I am not aware of TARA or most of the other anti-regimists here showing enthusiasm for al-Nusrah or accepting the possibility of extremist Islamist domination of Syrians. Quite the opposite. And that’s apparently also how it is with the majority of people inside Syria.

(There’s a couple of exceptions here notably VISITOR, but that’s holy warrior dreams from a distance, not reality.)

When the drama of the fighting stops and the dust settles the extremists as usual will find reality all too hard and not exciting enough, and scamper home.

In the meantime, a lot of people inside and outside Syria are doing a lot to make it harder for these “holy warriors” to live out and sustain their delusions – including themselves, with behavior that is strongly alienating and angering Syrians in areas where they are present.

Al Nusra is better than the regime. That’s sufficient for most Syrians.

It doesn’t matter what the regime tries to say. The regime’s basic image problem is that it’s considered WORSE than the opponents it is fighting against.

And considering what the regime has done, that image isn’t going to go away.

As I’ve said before: every shell or bomb the regime launches indiscriminately into Sunni areas is another nail in the regime’s coffin. The regime’s use of violence eliminated its legitimacy. It can hold onto power for a while longer using brute force, but it can no longer command obedience through legitimacy or consent.

And no government can survive for long without legitimacy or the consent of its citizens.

The regime can still fight and kill, but it cannot convince its enemies to stop fighting nor cow them into submission. It can commit violence, but that violence serves no benefit other than temporarily holding their enemies at bay.

Thank you Syrian for all the comments (17, 18, 20, 21 and 24) bringing sanity to this thread.

There are few impostors here who claim to be regime supporters but their aim and agenda have become clear. They are the stooges of the Americans and are enemies of the revolution, particularly because they continue to bad mouth the holy warriors of Nusra who made the Syrian Revolution victorious by their sacrifices, dedication, discipline, steadfastness, organization, fighting skills and above all by the Unseen Help of the Al-Mighty Allah. We should be aware of these impostors and exorcise them outside this noble and glorious revolution because they are harmful to it and to the Syrian people.

There is no doubt that the holy Sheikh speaking in the video in the main post is very honorable and is following on the path of our holy Prophet (PBUH). It is also obvious that passerbys are very happy with the sheikh which shows that our holy Nusra warriors are welcomed and popular among our Syrian people.

Those who continue to speak ill of our holy Nusra warriors will end up in the dead end of frustration, irrelevance and will only get the echo of the barks from the air surrounding them.

This revolution IS Nusra and Nusra IS the revolution.

ومن على منبر قناة “الميادين”، هاجم المصري بعنف جماعة الاخوان السورية متهماً إياها بالسيطرة على كل مفاصل المعارضة المسلحة والمدنية والإغاثية، ومتهمها بالتعاون بإستقدام المتطرفين الاسلاميين لتدمير سوريا، وفي سياق هجومه العنيف على الاخوان، قال المصري: “طفح الكيل من ممارسات الإخوان المسلمين”، مضيفاً: “جماعة الإخوان تتحمل مسؤولية شرذمة المعارضة و جل ما تفعله الجماعة إقصاء المعارضين غيرها”، مردفاً: “الإخوان سيطروا على المجلس الوطني والإئتلاف ويريدون السيطرة على كل شيء”، معتبراً ان “سفارة الإئتلاف في الدوحة عار على الشعب السوري” كاشفاً ان سفارتنا (كجيش حر) هي سفارة الجمهورية العربية السورية فقط”.
المصري قال ان “سورية فيها 36 قومية وطائفة ومن غير الممكن لجماعة متطرفة مثل «الإخوان المسلمين» أن تصل للحكم في سورية”، كاشفاً عن “وجود احتقان في العديد من الأوساط من سلوك الإخوان المسلمين”، مشيرا إلى اننا “نريد إسقاط النظام وليس إسقاط الدولة السورية، كما تريد جماعة الاخوان”.

Thats rather ironic to suggest and as usual after you MarigoldRan posted that comment you received a higher value of likes based on your comment which is not surprising i had seen this manipulation before elsewhere even since Libya and already i am still seeing it.

According to MarigoldRan Al Nusra is better than Assad Government the same Al Nusra which beheads people’s tortures POWs. And just like the Free Syrian Army they also use Child Soldiers.

“The regime’s basic image problem is that it’s considered WORSE than the opponents”

Really? lets Car Bombs, Child Soldiers kidnapping UN workers and then using to mouth bad about Assad in the video, killing old man by use of car bombs and suicide bombers.

And that isn’t image problem? of course not apparently to the Pro FSA people.

“As I’ve said before: every shell or bomb the regime launches indiscriminately into Sunni areas is another nail in the regime’s coffin. The regime’s use of violence eliminated its legitimacy. It can hold onto power for a while longer using brute force, but it can no longer command obedience through legitimacy or consent. ”

What about the fact that your beloved Free Syrian Army are also shelling every mortar, artillery into Sunni residential areas that are either Pro Assad or neutral?

How is that liberating again?

And this comment by another users speaks volumes.

I agree with your last sentence but not fully that Assad’s regime is to blame for the growth of islamism. To a certain extent, yes, but they gave way for a radicalisation that has been going on in the muslim world with or without the Assad’s. Probably they thought it better to accomodate to an inevitable rising tide then to seek to supress what could be used against them.

Muslims need to do some soulsearching, contemplate how to stem the increased radicalisation of muslims and the low level of tolerance that comes with it, even among rather moderate muslims.

Syria Opposition Chief Khatib to Complete 6-Month Term

Syrian opposition chief Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib, who surprised everyone by resigning his post, will complete his six-month term before stepping down, a U.S. official said Thursday.

Khatib, a former imam, was only elected to head the Syrian opposition coalition in November after significant pressure from Washington to get the rebels to unify and be more inclusive.

He resigned from his post on Sunday, five days after the controversial election in Istanbul of interim prime minister Ghassan Hitto, who some opposition leaders have complained was imposed on them by other nations.

But Khatib headed the Syrian opposition delegation that took over Syria’s seat at an Arab League summit in Doha this week, and there were doubts over whether he would indeed step down.

“Our understanding is that he has now said that he will fulfill his responsibilities. He was named president for six months,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

Khatib was now in discussions with “Hitto and various other members of the opposition remain in dialogue with each other about the best way forward,” she told journalists.

A six-month term would likely expire for Khatib some time in May.

“We are emphasizing to all of them to remain unified, remain effective and to keep their eye on the ball, which is to help the Syrian people… achieve their aspirations in the future,” Nuland said.

“What’s important to us is that they continue working together on a better future for Syria.”

Stylish and intellectual in appearance, Khatib with his salt-and-pepper beard and Western suits — but never a tie — has taken risks to impose his convictions, albeit with calm determination.

In February, he surprised both his allies and the Assad regime by offering to open talks with the Damascus government, subject to conditions including the release of 160,000 detainees.

The Syrian regime rejected conditional talks as some of Khatib’s detractors in the opposition labeled his offer traitorous and incoherent.

Khatib rejected such accusations.

“I cannot accept that those who talk about negotiations are accused of treason,” he said.

“Some have told me that men of politics do not talk this way… I say to them: I am just a revolutionary.”

Your failure in Egypt is a lesson you can learn from, and Syria is different from Egypt. Egyptian MB has been connected to society, unlike you who have been away for decades.

Everyone is aware of your position on the regime before the revolution, you had suspended your opposition to it till days before the start of the revolution. Those who were groveling to the regime cannot hand out patriotism labels to anyone.

FSA’s open statement is indeed a natural and interesting development. Anything doing Syria a positive effect even in a long run is good and welcomed.

But major questions remain even only for the talk: Does FSA really have any say in political theater or on the ground? FSA is heavily depending on fund and weapon support from Qatar. Obviously Qatar will be very very upset if their handpicked ME got rejected by FSA. What will be the consequence?

If the opposition indeed can re-organize and form a progressive structure, that definitely will help for a political solution with the regime.

Second, the religious discourse is the easiest one to use for it is fully understood by the vast majority of the people in Syria. Even non practicing Muslims and agnostics can be sensitive to this discourse.

Third, the concept of the ideal time of justice and the rule of law that the people have related to the glorious days of Islam be it under the early time of the prophet and the four successors or under Salah Addin or other leaders. It is not under Nasser that lost in 67 or Assad that brutalized Hama or under Kaddafi the stooge or under Abdallah in KSA or under any recent ruler.

Therefore it is easy for the revolution to harken back to a familiar theme. Did you think that there was going to be a communist exhorting the great Lenin or Stalin after defeating the regime supporters? The rebels will use the verses of the Quran that were essential at a time when the community of Muslims was being formed. Now that it is formed these verses are not relevant any longer in my opinion, but not in their opinion. They believe that they are in the same predicament today as in 7th century Arabia.

So we are going full ahead into Somaghanistan a combination of those two failed states and it is possible after the destruction of the infrastructure deliberately by the regime and fragmentation of the society. It may break up and history is replete with countries and peoples committing political suicide and it may be necessary to redraw the new ME>

So, in the face of clear cut losses by the regime and its VP declaring that there is no military solution to the conflict and the emergence of a group of Alawi intellectuals dissociating themselves from the regime and the emergence of a resistance to the diktat of the MB within the opposition and the emergence of Salafi militants who are gaining influence because of their fighting and discipline in the face of FSA incompetence as you say let me propose the following

1. The President goes on TV and admits that there is no military solution
2. The president admits that with “foreign’ jihadists there are genuine Syrians fighting the regime
3. In an effort to spare the country he declares immediate cease fire
4. He agrees to release all the women from prison and agrees of Khatib initiative
5. He agrees to have his VP meet with Khatib to form an executive national unity government and he immediately relinquishes all of the executive power prerogatives to the two men .
6. The armed forces are put under the command of the VP and Khatib together and answer to them and to them only.
7. FSA commanders in their areas assumed command and coordinate with local regime troops to merge and patrol the areas and secure buildings and roads and property against theft and destruction.
8. All other fighters are then asked to join local police forces likewise in a merger of the two forces with full cease fire just to secure the places and allow for refugees to return and for humanitarian aid to come through.
9. Russia Iran Qatar KSA and Turkey are asked to sit down and work a reconstruction aid plan as they all helped in the destruction on equal footing and to no longer interfere in Syrian affairs
10. Advisors go home, and flow of arms and training help stops for both sides.

What do you say to this?

The holy warriors of Nusra are now on the verge of taking over Deir Ezzor international airport, which has been transformed into a military airbase by the criminal regime as no flights are going in or out of the airport. Deir Ezzo governate has been liberated except for the city and its airport and three inconsequential barracks. It has been reported by those who defected recently from the airport that low morale is spreading fast and furious among the remaining few holdouts. It is expected that the airport siege will last few days and perhaps few hours before the thugs stationed in it surrender to the good hands of the holy Nusra fighters. The city itself will be liberated soon afterward with little efforts once the airport has been cleansed of the filth.

This will complete the liberation of Deir Ezzor, making it along with Raqqa Free Of Assad Filth and Free Syrian Territory. Thanks once again to the dedication, steadfastness, discipline and efficiency of the holy Nusra fighters المؤيدون بالنصر من رب العالمين

This war is not likely to come an end unless one side scores a decisive victory (unlikely) or the war is extended beyond Syria’s borders. Lebanon as usual will be the theatre of future violent confrontations outside Syria, northern Lebanon today is not much different from the once alqaida-dominated Anbar Iraqi province.
Israel’s vaunted missile defence system is likely to leave the civilian population exposed to an incoming barrage of rockets in the event of a war as it is deployed to protect key strategic and military sites, according the country’s commander of the home front.

Despite the success of the Iron Dome anti-missile batteries at intercepting rockets launched from Gaza during November’s eight-day conflict, the five units currently operational are insufficient to protect against the superior firepower of Hezbollah in Lebanon.
Israel is watching, as of now things are going in Israel’s preferred direction, militant sunni fighters along with syrian soldiers are killing each other, it could not get much better for the jewish state except that they still have to deal with Hizbullah:
“I will recommend protecting the country’s functional continuity and the ability to maintain an [Israeli Defence Forces] offensive effort over time, until the war is won,” Major General Eyal Eisenberg, head of the home front command, said in an interview with Haaretz.

ووفقا لصحيفة فإن “مئات الجنود الدروز الذين يخدمون في الجيش الإسرائيلي طلبوا الدخول إلى سورية”، من أجل التجند للدفاع عن أشقائهم الدروز الذين تعرضوا في الأيام الأخيرة لهجوم بالقرب من الحدود مع إسرائيل من جانب فصائل المتمردين الذين يحاربون جيش بشار الأسد”.
ونقلت الصحيفة عن الزعيم الروحي للطائفة الدرزية في إسرائيل الشيخ موفق طريف قوله “تلقينا مئات الاتصالات الهاتفية من شبان أعلنوا ‘أننا مستعدون لأن نفعل كل شيء من أجل الدفاع عن أشقائنا في سورية'”.
وأضاف طريف “بدأنا الآن في حملة جمع تبرعات بهدف تقديم مساعدة إنسانية لأشقائنا، ونواصل متابعة ما يحدث في الجانب الآخر من الحدود بتأهب وقلق”.
وأردف أن “هؤلاء الشبان مستعدون لتنفيذ كل شيء: التجند والقتال والتطوع بأفراد، ورغم ذلك فإني آمل ألا نصل إلى وضع نضطر فيه إلى تجاوز الحدود من أجل مساعدة أشقائنا الدروز، ونحن مواطنون نحافظ على القانون ونجري اتصالات مع الجيش (الإسرائيلي) ومع كافة الجهات ذات العلاقة من أجل ألا نصل إلى هذا الوضع”.
وقالت جهات في الطائفة الدرزية في إسرائيل إن “القلق لديهم بدأ في أعقاب مهاجمة أهداف درزية في سورية لأول مرة منذ بدء الأزمة السورية، وأنه قبل عشرة أيام تمت مهاجمة قرية الخضر الدرزية والتي تبعد ثلاثة كيلومترات عن قرية مجدل شمس في هضبة الجولان المحتلة”.

Hamas is an off shot of the Muslim Brotherhood and was not created by Israel. It was supported briefly by Israel as a counter force to Fatah under the impression that it would not become militant. It was a mistake of course. Assad supported Hamas for 11 years, in fact ALL the time he was in control. He supported it even though it was clear it was a terrorist organization.

And the fact is that most Syrians were happy with that. So why exactly are you complaining about Sunni extremists now? Why were they good for 11 years and stopped being good now? The Assad regime helped these Sunni extremist and the regime supporters saw this as a “genius” foreign policy. Show me ONE serious voice in Syria for 11 years that said that Hamas should be dropped. In short, regime supporters have nothing to complain about.

Thank you for posting the Asma video. It is quite an impressive piece of production. The highest quality, by far, I’ve ever seen come out of the regime’s propaganda machine. Multiple cameras, beautiful editing, amazing shots. Almost worth of an Oscar. I wonder what production company they managed to contract with to create it.

On another note, Asma looked very comfortable and genuine. It is hard to believe that she knows she has been part of a machine that killed thousands of innocent people. I hate what this regime had done to Syria, but I have to admit that I liked her in this film. Did I get fooled? I am curious to hear what Tara thought about it.

Stating the obvious, and no disrespect for people living in Syria, but they have been fed a certain story all their lives and have not had the same amounts of information at hand, not to mention that open and frank political discussion in Syria and many other Arab countries just wasn’t possible. It’s somewhat von oben (not saying you are guilty of this) to expect that ‘society’ today can weigh the pros and cons of Middle East policy.

The greatest effect of the Arab uprising is that people are free to speak their minds, more than before at least, and that ‘known truths’ are being challenged. A new generation of politcally savvy people are growing up and realizing that world is not as black and white as their precious leaders and teachers have been saying all these decades. That will have more repercussions than any rebel takeover of this or that city ever will.

Since arab tv station spread like mushrooms Syrians have at least the posibility to know better. As far as I am concerned the majority of people were satisfied that politics belong to the regime, no one seemed to care that their say wasnt worth anything, or more seriously would harm them or their loved ones. My sincere hope is that Syrians will never again let any group or an fraction of society rule them. I am sure a lot of grassroot work has to be done so no one is left behind in this democratization process which has to start after this regime is history.

The USA and Russia strike back at isolated Qatar

The USA and Russia have always been in favor of a transition government that includes regime figures and not in favor of the interim government that Qatar has forced on the opposition last week.
The GCC (except Qatar), are loyal allies to the USA and they hate the Moslem Brotherhood. They are cracking down on them in their country. In addition KSA hates Turkey that is taking too much space in the Arab World.
The GCC-1 seems to have gained more influence on the FSA that now felt free to openly criticize Qatar and Turkey for their support of the MB. As a result, they’ll loose their financial and logistic supports but they’ll gain the other GCC countries support.
Strong of that support, they have rejected the Hitto election.
Without the FSA, the crippled Hitto government dominated by the MB is doomed. It will never be able to control anything without the permission of the FSA. That will weaken tremendously the SNC and probably provoke its demise.

Yet, the FSA is extremely vulnerable as it is heavily infiltrated by the Islamist terrorists. Alone, they can’t get rid of the “bad” fighters. The FSA need serious military support in manpower and weapons and they can’t never get that from the West..

Therefore the only salvation is to form a transitional Military government with the regime to join forces and oppose both the Moslem Brotherhood and Al Nusra.

The USA-Russia plan is taking shape: Discard Qatar, weaken the SNC, boost the FSA into negotiations with the regime for a transitional government.
Is they succeed, we may soon see negotiations between FSA leaders and the Syrian government. Qatar and the SNC’s time is over.

Syrian rebel fighters blast Muslim Brotherhood for ‘delaying victory’

Phil Sands Apr 1, 2013
http://www.thenational.ae/news/world/middle-east/syrian-rebel-fighters-blast-muslim-brotherhood-for-delaying-victory

ANTAKYA, TURKEY // Syrian rebel fighters have accused the Muslim Brotherhood of undermining the revolt against Bashar Al Assad and trying to dictate opposition politics.

Rebel officers said the Brotherhood was putting narrow factional politicking over the broad interests of the revolt.

“We hold you responsible for delaying victory of the revolution and the fragmentation of the opposition,” the Joint Command of the Free Syrian Army said in an open letter to the Muslim Brotherhood.

There was a “deep confrontation” within the opposition between the Muslim Brotherhood and other secular, national and military factions, the FSA said.

Anti-Brotherhood sentiments, particularly in Damascus, were running high, the FSA warned, with growing anger at efforts by the group to control military and humanitarian relief efforts administered by the Syrian National Coalition, the opposition bloc given Syria’s seat in the Arab League at a summit last week.

A significant majority of its members are directly or indirectly allied to the Muslim Brotherhood, much to the dismay of other rebel factions who say the group’s representation in the SNC political chambers vastly outweighs its street presence inside Syria.

n a response posted online, the Brotherhood spokesman Amr Mishoh dismissed the statement. He said there was no evidence for its claims and that the organisation was playing a proportionate, constructive role both in opposition politics and on the ground.

“All of these attempts to deform the Muslim Brotherhood will not succeed and will not stop our patriotic role in the Syrian revolution,” he said.

It is not plausible that 2 years later, she does know not the truth. She is in my opinion a willful participant. She is a savvy women, born to an ordinary family and married at age 25, therefore the grandiose mental problem of the dictator being the country should not inflict her. I am simply not fooled.

At least 95% of Palestinians Support the brave Syrian Revolution. The assault on al-Jazeera was NOT spontaneous, but rather paid for by the corrupt Palestinian Authority (PA) of “President” Mahmoud Abbas. Abbas and his two sons (who use USAID money for anti-Aljazeera billboards in Ramallah)have had longtime enmity toward Aljazeera.

‘Harroun exposed what US is doing in Syria’/Video/
http://presstv.com/usdetail/295854.html
Eric Harroun, an ex-soldier, has been charged in the U.S. with using a weapon in Syria against Syrian government forces. An American activist says Harroun is being prosecuted not because of his terrorist acts but because he has exposed what the United States is doing in Syria.

Eric Harroun, 30, served in the U.S. Army from 2000-2003, and allegedly fought in Syria with the al-Nusra Front, which is deemed a terrorist group by the U.S. as an alias of al-Qaeda in Iraq.

“The case of Harroun is perhaps unusual not only because he’s being prosecuted. But he apparently, according to the New York Times, had been posting reports about his time in Syria on Facebook and Youtube. So it may be that his real crime isn’t doing what is U.S. policy, which is conducting a terrorist war against the Syrian government, but rather that he blabbed about it and betrayed States’ secrets,” Don DeBar, activist and radio host, told the U.S. Desk on Saturday.

It seems that the most “offensive thing” that a U.S. citizen can do at this point is to expose what the United States is doing in Syria, he said.

U.S. prosecutors allege that Harroun posted on social media photographs of himself carrying rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) and other weapons. He also appeared in two videos about military action in Syria with militants.

Higher Taxes, Layoffs And Higher Gas Prices To Arm Rebels And Help Refugees in Syria

http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=72f_1364691199
http://www.strategypage.com/qnd/syria/articles/20130329.aspx

Over the last month the U.S. has quietly joined the unofficial effort to arm the Syrian rebels and help them defeat the Assad forces even as Air Traffic Controllers in US get the axe.. The rebels are receiving about twice the number of weapons (and ammo) they were getting a month ago. This aid includes more training (in Jordan) for rebel fighters and CIA provided intelligence information about the location, plans, and capabilities of government forces. This aid is not distributed evenly to the rebels, who are divided into over a hundred separate units. These belong to three main factions: moderate/tribal rebels, Islamic radicals, and Kurd militias. Most rebels belong to the moderate/tribal groups, who want a democratic Syria. The Islamic radicals want a religious dictatorship for Syria, while the Kurds want an autonomous northeastern Kurd state (like the Kurds have had in northern Iraq for two decades). Aid is being kept away, as much as possible, from the Islamic radicals. None of the countries supplying this aid (America, Turkey, Jordan, and the Arab Gulf oil states) want an “Islamic Republic” and terrorist sanctuary in Syria. Nor do most Syrians. But the dozen or so Islamic radical factions comprise some of the rebels most fearless and ferocious fighters, as well as about 20 percent of the armed rebels. The other rebel groups don’t want to arm these Islamic terrorists because it’s understood that after the rebellion is over, the moderates and Kurds will have to deal with the Islamic radicals. A negotiated settlement (providing some degree of sanctuary) is possible but unlikely. Another round of fighting is what most rebels expect, since violence is what Islamic radicals are all about.

But first the Assad government must be destroyed and the plan appears to be centered on Damascus. There are about two thousand armed rebels fighting in the outskirts of Damascus, slowly extending their control towards the well-defended city center. The city center includes major government buildings, the commercial districts, major universities, and hospitals plus residential neighborhoods of government supporters. The increased arms supply includes more effective anti-tank rockets and additional mortars (that give the rebels artillery support). More shoulder fired anti-aircraft missiles are getting in as well. The Americans and Turks have been training rebel gunmen and leaders. The latter is particularly important because these men are taught how to more effectively use their fighters in combat. The training program also produces combat medics and communications specialists. Better trained and equipped rebel fighters are seen as capable to isolating Damascus and slowly (over weeks or months) destroying the Assad forces there. In response Iran and their Lebanese Hezbollah militia are selecting and training pro-Assad soldiers to be elite infantry capable of performing better in the urban fighting that is increasingly common. Apparently Iran believes more of these specialized troops can defeat the rebels.

When the rebels take Damascus, the Assads will be left with the largely Alawite coastal areas (and ports), plus towns and villages in central Syria that belong to pro-government minorities (Alawites, Christians, Druze, and so on). Rebels can negotiate the surrender of many of these but some will go down fighting. With Damascus gone there will be a lot more army desertions and international support for the rebels as the true government of Syria. Yet the end of this revolution will be messy and likely to drag on for months or even a year or more.

Already some refugees are returning to their homes in areas that are no longer combat zones. These are places where the government forces have been driven out by the rebels. There are still over half a million Syrian refugees outside the country and more than three million inside Syria. But fewer refugees are being created and more of them can now go home.

SOS. Regime supporters urgently need more counselling, emotional first aid and sedatives for one of their leading cyber warriors.

Syrian Commando has suffered a nervous collapse and taken himself off air in protest at Bashar Assad.

That’s right, Assad’s toughest and most notorious sofa strategist and cheerleader has declared he’s over Bashar and quit his aggressive twitter campaign.

Not because of anything Assad has done, but because of what Bashar and his Iranian puppeteers HAVEN’T done – namely attack Israel.

You can chart Syrian Commando’s downward spiral in confidence and support for Bashar climaxing in this tweet on 31 January:

“Until Syria or Iran start attacking israel, I’m not going to tweet, this might mean forever. FinalTweet”.

Dead silence ever since. After long months of ferociously kicking rebels’ ass online and loyally boosting Assad and his army, the cyber Commando has hung up his boots.

His fellow traveller Yazan Guevara “SyrianFortress” and a couple of other Assadist tweeters tried to uplift and distract him (see their conversation on Syrian Commando’s twitter).

But it was no good. Syrian Commando couldn’t be pacified. He wails: “Shame on the Syrian government for accepting humiliation after humilialtion, shame on them for having no dignity or any bravery at al” and “We allowed them (Israel) to destroy EVERYTHING, they are literally running out of targets so they’re hitting the biggest ones”

The steely Commando curses Assad’s propagandists for making it worse: “Syrian TV showing video of the president’s old speech — UH NOT A GOOD TIME RIGHT. You’re just making people hate him for not defending us.”

Tweeter Firas Francis (specialist in syrupy muck) tries: “Take it easy…. We choose the time to hit back and fight…” . But Syrian Commando snarls back: “When, judgement day?”

The Iranians have failed Syrian Commando too: “Enough threatening Iran, seriously I’ve fucking had enough of the empty threats and words, have some shame, have some fucking dignity.”

And the Russians earn sarcasm: “Israel is openly boasting to America about its attack on Syria and Russia still needs time to investigate whether it should SAY something” and another tweet: “Russia taking urgent measures to run around pretending to be important while the USA destroys the world”

This is so much fun, but I won’t go on forever. Read and enjoy for yourself.

NOTE: Syrian Commando made a lot of enemies including journalists with his virulent pro-Assad campaigning. An effort was made last year to unmask his identity, with some pointing to a Syrian defence scientist doing a PhD in Hong Kong.

Oh what a surprise. Dodgy and delusionary denials from the Muslim Brotherhood to the charges laid against them in the open letter by the FSA.

There’s no negotiating with the MB. Only outing and shaming and oustsmarting them. Marginalizing them like they have been ruthlessly doing to everyone else, playing cheating games and derailing the Syrian opposition.

The MB are clearly not interested in Syria, only in securing it as a power base for its own selfish and stupid agenda.

EXCERPT:

[FSA TO MB]”This revolution is not your property and you did not make it. The revolution has been made by the people who are paying with their blood and lives,” the FSA statement said.

Unflinching in its criticism, it said the Muslim Brotherhood should not treat people as if they were stupid and that its actions had thrown a roadblock in front of efforts to defeat Mr Al Assad.

It stressed that Syria’s multisectarian, multiethnic demography meant no single group could or should seek to monopolise power, and that Syrians would accept only genuine equality among themselves, not the subservience of one group to another.

The Muslim Brotherhood has its role to play, the FSA Joint Command said, but should not overplay its hand or marginalise other groups.

In a response posted online, the Brotherhood spokesman Amr Mishoh dismissed the statement. He said there was no evidence for its claims and that the organisation was playing a proportionate, constructive role both in opposition politics and on the ground.

“All of these attempts to deform the Muslim Brotherhood will not succeed and will not stop our patriotic role in the Syrian revolution,” he said.

Syrian Perspective
Dara’a:

There have been reports from Al-Jazeera that the Rebels have advanced. That is completely false. The Battle for Dael was not even a real ‘Battle.’ The SAA did not directly engage in battle there. In Dara’a itself, the SAA has legitimately eradicated insurgents entering through the border. With the aid of Lebanese civilians, the rebels, who are presumably Jabhat al-Nusra have retreated into Lebanon. The central part of the province is securely in the SAA’s hands.

Readers, please be advised:

When you see a video of a supposed “Rebel victory,” and you see them collecting SAA weapons in warehouses; this is a sham. What they really found in these warehouses were weapons that were purposely manufactured to be defective. The Syrian military did this with the Muslim Brotherhood in the 80’s. When they would fire the assault rifles, the guns would not function. Brilliant, right? If the SAA can’t find them, we will send them to hell via our factory workers.

Tara, I have no problem if the Kurds decide to give their areas to disciplined FSA troops but not to Islamists, provided that rebels do not round up people and kill them in the streets and practice street justice on them, previous experiences with similar incidents were not encouraging.
Moving to Moaz, he invited Assad for a live debate, no doubt that Assad will not respond, Moaz is the only opposition figure today who may have a chance to bring Syrians together but turkey and Qatar DI not want him.
قال رئيس الائتلاف الوطني السوري الشيخ معاذ الخطيب أن هناك مؤامرة واضحة جدا على سوريا وأن أي تدخل خارجي هدفه تقسيم البلاد.
وقال الخطيب أن مصير الرئيس بشار الأسد يقرره السوريون فقط، واذا قرر الخروج سيغمض البعض عيونهم ..
وقال الخطيب أنه دعا الرئيس الأسد لمناظرة تلفزيونية على الهواء مباشرة أمام السوريين.
ودعا إلى برنامج انتقالي يضمن حقوق الجميع في أجهزة الدولة .. كما حدث في جنوب افريقيا و راوندا.
وصرح الخطيب أنه اذا صدق النظام اقبل التفاوض معه في  دمشق على الحل  مبيناً بأن الحل السياسي هو الحل العاقل وهو بيد السوريين إذا كانوا يد واحدة.
وعن استقالته يقول الخطيب أن الاعلام ضخم خبر استقالته ويضيف: استقالتي ليست مساومة والأمر مرتبط بمعادلات كثيرة … لا زلت على استقالتي، وسأمارس صلاحياتي حتى اجتماع الهيئة العامة لبت الأمر.
وأضاف أن بعض أعضاء الائتلاف الوطني يتصرفون بطريقة غير لائقة وأنه طرح كثيراً من الافكار على الائتلاف وجوبهت بالرفض ويضيف ان الائتلاف معركة جانبية انأى بنفسي واضاف: وجودي على رأس الائتلاف مفيد لكنه بعيد عن احتياجات الناس .. واعترف أن الائتلاف ليس جسما كاملا وهناك تباين في وجهات النظر.
ويقول الخطيب أن الايادي الاقليمية تساهم في عدم الوصول الى حل سريع والتفاهمات الدولية دائما على حساب المقهورين.
—————————-
اهم النقاط في مقابلة معاذ الخطيب رئيس الائتلاف السوري لقوى المعارضة:
ــ ارفض اي تدخل خارجي وهو بكل صراحة سيكون لتقسيم سوريا.
ــ سيكون التدخل الخارجي اذا اتى سيكون لانقاذ النظام او اجهاض الثورة السورية او تقسيم سوريا وانا مع اي شيء يرفع الاذى عن الناس ( كالباتريوت ) وانا طلبت هذا من الناتو ورفض.
ــ انا لا اتعامل مع اي جهة استخباراتية وانما اعمل مع جهات حكومية ودائما نطالب بوحدة سوريا ولا نقبل بتجاوز هذا الامر.
ــ هناك مؤامرة على الشعب السوري وتستطيع المعارضة ان توقفها فقط عندما تتوحد وانا ارى ان هناك ناس تصنع ( دكاكين لها في المعارضة ).
ــ لا اكره البعثيين كأشخاص وانما اكرههم كفكر.
ــ ميشيل كيلو صديق قديم وله تجربة كبيرة وانا احترمها.
ــ بالنسبة للقمة العربية ( لم اذهب اليها استجابة لجهات واشخاص وانما استجابة للناس التي راسلتني )
 ــ أدان الطريقة التي قتل فيها ( البوطي ) بغض النظر عن الذي قتلة
ــ غسان هيتو اختير بطريقة جماعية وليس تبعية.
ــ قتل المدنيين مرفوض واذا اتيح الحل السياسي نحن لانرفضه.
ــ وجدت في هذا المكان بسبب ضروره معينه ليس لامر اني عاجز عنه ولكن اجد مجالي في تقريب الناس مع بعضهم.
ــ انا ابذل جهدي وارغب ان ياتي في يوم من ان ياتي من يسد الثغرة.
ــ الخوف على الطوائف بسبب الوضع السلبي وقد تكون هناك رغبة بالانتقام.
ــ التقيت الرئيس بشار الأسد مرة واحدة في مسجد الرفاعي في صلاة الجمعة.
 To be more specific, I will vote for Moaz in free and clean elections over Assad or any other politician, he is ahead of everybody,I hope he does not get killed.

If most of the opposition support Al-Khatib and promote him on an open free election, then he will have a chance.

Otherwise, he will remain to be a “nobody” to most Syrians.

To win an election, it requires a team work, a solid political body. Personality and charisma count only after the person gets promoted to the very front.

Right now, Syria has no such luxury to have a general free election even after the war ends. Whoever can provide security and peace will get high ticket to be the winner. If Al-Khatib does not have strong military backing, he won’t be able to make it.

On the other hand, Assad has huge advantage. Guess that is the main reason, the opposition have to take down Assad before negotiation.

Al Nusra Front chieftain killed in Syria

Syrian army forces have killed Adnan al-Haj Ali better known as Abi Mohammd Joulani, leader of al-Nusra Front in Syria, announced a Syrian opposition source affiliated with Ahfad bani Omaiya in Rif, Damascus.

Al-Alam News Channel quoted the source as telling Lebanon’s Asia News Agency that al-Joulani has many names, but his real name is Adnan Al-Haj Ali from Quneitra.

His military name has been allotted to a number of people for security reasons in an attempt to prevent the disclosure of the Front present commander’s identity. The al-Nusra Front is organizationally under the command of al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Reports had it that al-Haj Ali and his Syrian deputy Mostafa Al-Badawi have been killed in an air attack by a Syrian MiG fighter jet.

Al-Badawi was one of al-Qaeda high ranking authorities, who commanded thousands of forces the Front employed in Syria. He was from Homs and cooperated with active terrorist groups in Persian Gulf littoral Arab countries to bring Arab gunmen into Syria.

According to reports the death of this al-Nusra Front leader in Syria has dealt a heavy blow to the terrorist group, since the group, which enjoys a powerful command, will lose contact with many of its branches.

We have to wonder where is the end: American think tanks make predication that due to advance of technology, weapon proliferation including WMD will be a reality and threat in the next 10 to 20 years.

Can US always make sure their technology is at least 2 generations ahead of others? What if one day that kind of technology lead is no longer a safeguard?

Imagine radicals and fundamentalists one day can have their own drones with global attacking capacity. Or miniature weaponry of size of insects are available on black market.

Solving problems facing humanity by force and technology is fundamentally doomed.

What this got to do with Syrian conflict?

الثوار يقتربون من أكبر معامل تصنيع الذخيرة بسوريا

الحر يسيطر على السفيرة بريف حلب

واصل الجيش السوري الحر تقدمه في ريف حلب، وسيطر على مدينة السفيرة، بعد أن تراجعت قوات النظام إلى منطقة معامل الدفاع التي تعد من أكبر معامل تصنيع الذخيرة في سوريا. وقد أصبحت معامل الدفاع هدفاً لقوات المعارضة، بعد أن قطعت خطوط الإمداد عن الجيش النظامي.

في غضون ذلك أفادت شبكة شام السورية بأن 15 شخصا قتلوا في قرية مدايا بريف إدلب، وأن أربع جثث عثر عليها بريف دمشق، في حين قالت الهيئة العامة للثورة إن قوات النظام قصفت أحياء بجنوبي دمشق، وأطلقت صاروخين من طراز سكود باتجاه شمالي البلاد.

وقالت شبكة شام إن 15 شخصا سقطوا قتلى في قرية مدايا بريف إدلب، موضحة أن 11 من بينهم ينتمون إلى عائلة واحدة. كما أفادت بأنه عثر على جثث أربعة أشخاص أعدموا ميدانيا على يد حاجز حي سيدي مقداد في بلدة ببيلا بريف دمشق. كما قتل تسعة أشخاص اليوم معظمهم في درعا وحلب، بحسب الشبكة السورية لحقوق الإنسان.
من جانبها أفادت الهيئة العامة للثورة بأن قوات النظام قصفت حيي الحجر الأسود ومخيم اليرموك في جنوبي العاصمة دمشق، وأن القصف بالمدفعية تركز أيضا على مدينة داريا التي شهدت اشتباكات بين قوات النظام والجيش الحر.

وفي هذه الأثناء، اندلعت اشتباكات عنيفة فجر اليوم في بلدة البحدلية بريف دمشق سبقها قصف شنته قوات النظام بالمدفعية وراجمات الصواريخ وصل إلى بلدة الذيابية المجاورة ومسرابا. وتعرضت بلدتا عربين وكفر بطنا في ريف دمشق لقصف عنيف من قبل قوات النظام، مما أدى إلى سقوط ضحايا بينهم أطفال ونساء.

اشتباكات بين الجيشين الحر والنظامي في أحياء بدمشق (الجزيرة)
اشتباكات
وتدور اشتباكات بين الجيش الحر والقوات النظامية قرب سوق الهال في الزبلطاني بدمشق. كما تشن قوات النظام حملات دهم للمنازل في أحياء كفرسوسة والميدان بدمشق وسط انتشار أمني كثيف، حسب شبكة شام.

كما وثقت عدسة مراسل شبكة شام في مدينة دير الزور اشتباكات بين الجيش الحر وقوات النظام بالقرب من كتيبة الصواريخ بمدينة دير الزور، في حين دارت اشتباكات في محيط مطاري حلب الدولي والنيرب العسكري في حلب بين الجيش الحر وقوات النظام، حسب نفس الشبكة.

ومن ناحية أخرى، أفادت لجان التنسيق المحلية بأن قوات النظام السوري أطلقت صاروخين من طراز سكود باتجاه شمالي البلاد من اللواء 155 في بلدة القطيفة بريف دمشق. وقد أطلق الأول فجر اليوم في حين أطلق الثاني بعد ساعات من ذلك.

مطار حلب
وفي حلب ذكر ناشطون أن مقاتلين من لواء التوحيد وألوية أخرى قصفوا مطار حلب الدولي المحاصر منذ شهور بمدافع الهاون والصواريخ.

من جهته، قال قائد المجلس الثوري في حلب العقيد عبد الجبار العكيدي للجزيرة إن الثوار يسعون للسيطرة على المطار قريبا، مؤكدا سحب كبار الضباط من المطار.

ويحاصر الثوار أيضا منذ شهور مطار النيرب العسكري القريب من مطار حلب، والذي قصفت القوات النظامية انطلاقا منه الأحد حيَّ كرم الطرّاب وفقا لمركز حلب الإعلامي.
