The “Syrian Rebels” Are Mostly Al Qaeda

Posted on the 27 April 2015 by Calvinthedog

You really do not have any moderate rebels in Syria, and the ones that do exist are pro-Israel! So your choice is between pro-Israel sellouts and Al Qaeda. You choose. Or Assad. I take Assad. The Islamists are leading the rebels, and they are all more or less all Salafi jihadi global jihad types, and most of them are connected with Al Qaeda in one way or another. Recent battlefield victories have all been led by Al Nusra, which is Al Qaeda. The New York Times has been cheering these Al Qaeda victories on for some time now because the US and Israel support Al Qaeda in this war (especially Israel).

The Western media has recently been propagating a line between the “moderate Al Qaeda,” who I guess are the good guys we need to support, which would be Al-Nusra and the “extremist Al Qaeda,” which would be ISIS, who I suppose is our enemy, maybe.

The whole thing is absolutely despicable. The US is supporting and rooting for Al Qaeda to overthrow a secular regime that protects minorities well. It’s insanity.

Here are a rundown on some of the main groups in Syria that the New York Times and America love so much:

  • Jund al Aqsa (founder was member of Al Qaeda)
  • Jaysh al Fateh coalition (religious leader is Al Qaeda), part of Al-Nusra network
  • Ahrar al Sham – part of al-Nusra network, senior Al Qaeda members in leadership
  • Ansar al Islam (Iraq) now Jamaat Ansar al Islam in Iraq and Syria (pledged allegiance to ISIS)
  • Ansar al-din – possibly Chechen-led, pled allegiance to Islamic Caucasus Emirate, Al Qaeda front in Caucasus, part of Al Qaeda
  • Junud al-Sham – Chechen-led, mostly from the Caucasus, part of al-Nusra network
  • Jabhat Ansar al-Din – part of al-Nusra network
  • Jaysh al-Islam – close ally of Al-Nusra
  • Jaysh al Muhajireen wal Ansar – led by Chechens, part of Jabhat Ansar al-Din, which is part of the Al-Nusra Network
  • Harakat Sham al Islam – led by Moroccans, part of Jabhat Ansar al-Din, which is part of the Al-Nusra Network
  • Harakat Fajr al Sham al Islamiyya – part of Syrian led, part of Jabhat Ansar al-Din, which is part of the Al-Nusra Network
  • Katibat Turkistani/Turkistani Battalion – Turkistan Islamic Party from Xinjiang, China, founded by Uighurs, al-Nusra associates, members of Al Qaeda in Pakistan
  • Al Farouq Battalions – This group, as part of the Free Syrian Army, ethnically cleansed all of the Christians in Homs. They went door to door and ordered all Christians out at gunpoint. 50,000 Christians were cleansed from Homs by the “moderate rebels” of the Free Syrian Army.
