Israel Favors Qaeda over Assad: Regime will not Fall Soon

April 11, 2013
Local Editor
 
Israel ruled out on Tuesday that the Syrian regime would fall anytime soon, pointing out that Israel did not favor Bashar Al-Assad over Al-Qaeda, as the first formed an “axis of extreme evilness”.

Amos GiladSpeaking to Yedioth Ahronoth, Head of the Diplomatic-Security Bureau in the Zionist Defense Ministry, Amos Gilad, indicated that the “deterioration in Syria has allowed groups such as Al-Qaeda to establish itself in the country,” yet highlighted that he did not favor Assad because he is in an “axis of extreme evil.”

On the Zionist entity’s relation with Turkey, Gilad considered that “reconciliation agreement” between both parts was important due to “Iran’s nuclear situation”.

“Turkey has been enemies with Iran or Persia for 1,000 years; it (Turkey) cannot allow them to arm themselves with nuclear weapons. Turkey is not ready for Iran to go nuclear,” Gilad told the Zionist daily.

The “Israeli” official further emphasized that “even if Israel’s relations with Turkey did not return to their previous level, the importance of the reconciliation agreement was in that it stopped the deterioration of relations between the two countries.”

UN Report Stresses Flow of Weapons from Libya to Terrorists in Syria across Turkey and Northern Lebanon

Apr 10, 2013

UNITED NATIONS, (SANA)- In a new proof added to the group of media reports which unveiled the involvement of Arab and foreign sides in arming the terrorist groups in Syria, a UN report stressed that Libya had become a key source of weapons in the region.

The report, which was made by the UN Security Council’s group of experts, who monitor an arms embargo imposed on Libya in 2011, stressed that the arm shipments which had been organized from various locations in Libya, including Misrata and Benghazi, were transferred to Syria via Turkey and northern Lebanon.

The report said that the significant size of some shipments and logistics involved suggest that representatives of the Libyan local authorities might at least have been aware of these shipments, if they were not directly involved, Reuters stressed according to the UN report published on Tuesday.

The report added that weapons spreading from Libya at an “alarming rate” fueling the war in Syria, Mali and other countries and enhancing the arsenals of extremists and the criminal gangs in the region.

‘Illicit flows from Libya are fuelling the existing conflicts in Africa and the Levant and enhancing the arsenals of a huge number of non-state groups, including terrorist groups”, the report said.

In the same context, several media reports unveiled operations on supplying terrorist groups in Syria with weapons to hinder the political solution based on dialogue, among which what the American republican senator Rand Paul has admitted last February on sending a shipment of weapons from Libya to Syria under US supervision.

Some reports stressed that the Croatian capital, Zagreb had turned into a crossing to the weapons and arms to the terrorist groups in Syria.

Another reports held Washington and its allies responsible for training terrorists in camps in Jordan.

12 Belgians Killed in Syria, Half of Iraqi Al-Qaeda Money Devoted to Al-Nusra

April 11, 2013
 
Local Editor

Belgian “Knack” weekly reported that no less than 12 Belgian nationals were killed in Syria, fighting with the armed groups in military operations against the Syrian Army.

An official had expressed concern that “Belgians would travel to Syria to join the armed militias,” adding, “Most of Belgian volunteers fighting in Syria are from Flanders, north Belgium.”
“More than a hundred people were headed to Syria from Belgium, and maybe hundreds, among which are young men no older than 16 years-old,” the magazine cited the official as saying.

For its part, the Belgian authorities accentuated that a number of its citizens are underage and enlisted in the ongoing conflict in Belgium, and a group of experts has been formed, upon the Minister of Interior’s request, to treat this phenomenon.

On a similar note, a report had revealed that “The House of Saud in the Saudi Arabia, within a US supervision, support the armed groups’ quest to impose a ‘liberated’ zone South Syria in order to open a key passage to attack Damascus.”

This comes as “The Independent” British daily revealed that Iraqi al-Qaeda branch devoted half its budget to supporting al-Nusra.

An Iraqi intelligence officer was quoted as saying that al-Qaeda in Iraq and al-Nusra have three joint training camps in the border area where they share training, logistics, intelligence and weapons.

The US, Britain and France, along with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have promoted and financed other factions of the opposition.

الدم السوري المقدس يطهر العالم

‏الأربعاء‏، 10‏ نيسان‏، 2013

أوقات الشام

ناجي الزعبي

الصمود السوري , وخيارات التصدي , والمقاومه , كالماء المقدس الذي اخذ يطهر جسد العالم من الشرور , والاثام التي عانت منها شعوب الارض عبر عقود ممتدة من الهيمنة الامبريالية الاميركيه , وفي مقدمة ذلك تطهر الجسد السوري والعربي الذي تخلص من ادران المزيفين والانتهازيين والخونه . سوريه تخوض حربا بالنقاط وهي تستعد لتسديد الضربة القاضيه, والمشهد يرسم الان ونقرأه كما يلي :

تفقد سوريه مقعدها في جامعة انظمة النعاج , ويُمنح المقعد للمعارضه , وفي الوقت نفسه يرفض المسلحون تسمية رئيس حكومة المعارضه ويعتبرونه خائنا”, ويعلنون بانهم لن يسمحوا ان يكون له سلطة او نفوذ في المناطق التي قد يسيطرون عليها, وينسحب اثنى عشر عضوا ” من ألأئتلاف المعارض فيستقيل معاذ الخطيب لعجزه عن قيادة الأئتلاف , ويرسل رسالة لأمير قطر يؤكد فيها على استقالته .
تتوقف القاعدة في المغرب العربي عن ضخ المقاتلين الى سوريه , وتعلن ان الاولوية للجهاد في مالي وليس سوريه , ثم تتراجع بريطانيا , وفرنسا , والاطلسي عن تسليح المعارضه , ويرفض الاتحاد الاوروبي تسليحهم ايضا” , مما سيُحدث تبدل نوعي في موازيين القوى .
الاتفاق المبرم بين اردوغان واوجلان ” حزب العمال الكردي ” , هو اشارة لوهن حكومة اردوغان , وعجزها عن اداء الدور الذي كان عليها ان تؤديه في سوريه , والبحث عن اخماد مصادر القلق التركي الداخلي بما فيها المعارضه , أنكفاء وممر اجباري , فدورها كرأس حربة تسبب لها بأزمات لا حصر لها , وفي مقدمتها الازمة الاقتصاديه , فقد فقدت العملة التركيه 60% من قيمتها , والنمو الاقتصادي الذي بلغ 7% في ال 2010 يصبح , 2,2 في ال 2012 , ويهبط تصنيفها الأئتماني من 1 أ الى 3 ,ب , وقد منح صندوق النقد الدولي اليونان 4 نقاط تحسن , مقابل نقطة واحده لتركيا .
اغلق بشمركه اقليم كردستان الحدود في منطقة القامشلي , الى الحدو مع تركيا في وجه المسلحين ومنعوهم من الدخول لسوريه , واغلقت الحدود التركيه في وجه تدفق المسلحين بقرارا من مجلس الامن القومي التركي فُرظ على اردوغان بسبب سيطرة القاعده على مناطق في الداخل التركي .
.اطراف المؤامره تستنزف اوراقها قبل التفاوض الاميركي , الروسي في حزيران , ففي الوقت الذي تعطى فيه المعارضه مقعد سوريه في الجامعه العربيه على مستوى القمه العربيه , يعلن كيري مع امير الحرب التركي اوغلو عن فشل الحل العسكري ,و يوجه بيريز دعوه للانظمة العربيه لارسال قوات للتدخل في سوريه اشارة للعجز الصهيوني , والتركي , والاطلسي , والاميركي , ونحن نعي تماما العجز العربي , فلم يمض وقت طويل على اعلان النظام الرسمي العربي عن نفسه بانه مجموعة من النعاج ! .
استقالة ميقاتي استباق للمفاوضات الاميركيه الروسيه , وسوريه ستستعيد احتضانها للحياة السياسيه بلبنان . اغتيال الشيخ البوطي , واعطاء مقعد سوريه في الجامعة العبريه للمعارضه , هو لهاث اميركي وسباق مع الزمن , واستنفاذ لكل ما تحتويه جعبة اطراف المؤامره , انظمة قطر, السعوديه , الرجعية العربيه , الاتحاد الاوروربي , تركيا , اميركا , وتأكيد للوهن والعجز الاميركي عن اسقاط سوريه والذهاب الى طاولة المفاوضات .
سوريه تدير الصراع بعقل بارد ورؤيا استراتيجيه واطراف المؤامره استهلكت ادواتها فما الذي تبقى غير طاولة المفاوضات ؟ المواجهه في حلب بدات تاخذ منحى جديد وينابيع المسلحين تنضب ومسلحي المغرب العربي الذين كانوا يشكلون 70 % من المسلحين في سوريه انحسر منذ 15 يوما بقرار من القاعده في الغرب التي اعلنت ان الاولوية هي مالي وان النصر في سوريه سيكون نصرا للاطلسي , وقد اتضح ذلك ميدانيا فداريا تتطهر خلال ساعات ان لم تكن قد تطهرت والبقية تأتي .
عالم جديد يتشكل وانف اميركا يتمرغ بوحل آثامها فالزعيم الكوري الشاب الذي لم يبلغ الثلاثين يدب الرعب في الاوصال الامبرياليه عبر تهديده بقصف هاواي والقواعد الاميركية في مشيخات النفط , فتهبط قيمة الاسهم اليابانيه وتغلق المعامل الكورية الجنوبيه , ويهرع وزير الحرب الاميركي الى الصين للتفوض بشأن التهديد النووي الذي تعلم الولايات المتحدة مدى جديته فهي على يقين بان كوريا قد اجرت تجارب اطلاق صورايخ نووية اصابت اهدافها بنجاح
كوريا ستسترد موقعها في الامم المتحده وسيهتز عرش اميركا التي تملك ال 380 قاعده عبر العالم و8000 طائره ونصف مليون جندي ويتمرغ انفها بتراب آثامها وشرورها
اميركا تعجز عن تحييد الملف الكوري و البند الاول في القمه الصينيه الروسيه للرئيس الصيني الجديد هو بناء مصادر القوه من اجل اعادة انتاج نظام عالمي جديد , ورفض عسكرة الازمه السوريه , ثم تخرج قمة بريكس ببند يتعلق بالازمة السوريه ويليها التهديد الكوري , ثم تعلن روسيا عن انها ستبعث سفن انزال لميناء طرطوس منتصف نيسان الحالي , ويقرا الاميركي الرساله الروسية , الصينيه المعززه بالمناورات الروسيه في البحر الابيض ,والاسود لتستعيد روسيا مكانتها ومصادر قوتها في المنطقه , فيزداد هلع اميركا مع اقتراب موعد المفاوضات واقتراب موعد الانسحاب من افغانستان الذي سبقه الانسحاب من العراق ثم اخلاء اوراسيا تماما من الدنس الامبريالي الاميركي وترك شعوب المنطقة دون هيمنة وسرقة وقتل واستبداد اميركي.
سوريه لم تستخدم اسباب قوتها بعد , في ذات الوقت التي احرق به الجميع اوراقهم , والان بدأت حرب سوريه , ولحضة الاستسلام الاميركي تدنو , وسوريه تفرض قواعد اللعبة , ولغة الغد .
حزب الله يملك مقاليد المبادره العسكريه , والقدره على خوض الحرب وحيدا فقد اعلن نصرالله بمصداقيته المجربه عن جاهزيته لمجابهة العدوالصهيوني , وقدرات ايران تزداد قوه وتستثمر عناصر القوه السوريه اقليميا ودوليا وقد ارسل المرشد الاعلى رسالة واضحة للعدو الصهيوني مهددا بازالة حيفا ويافا لو قام بالعدوان على ايران .
على المنخرطين بالمؤامره الترجل من قاطرة التآمر , او تحسس رؤوسهم .

Al-Qaeda in Iraq announces merger with Syrian rebel group

April 10, 2013

Published Tuesday, April 9, 2013
 

Al-Qaeda’s branch in Iraq said it has merged with Syria’s Islamist Jabhat al-Nusra, a move that is likely to trigger renewed fears among its international backers.

A website linked to Jabhat al-Nusra confirmed on Tuesday the merger with the Islamic State of Iraq. The leader of latter group, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, first made the announcement in a 21-minute audio statement posted on militant websites late Monday.

The claims of the merger could not be independently confirmed.

Jabhat al-Nusra has taken an ever-bigger role in Syria’s conflict over the last year, fighting in key battles and staging several large suicide bombings. The US has designated it a terrorist organization.
The Syrian group has made little secret of its ideological ties to the global jihadi movement and its links across the Iraqi border but until now has not officially declared itself to be part of al-Qaeda.
Baghdadi said that his group – the Islamic State of Iraq – had funded cells of fighters from Jabhat al-Nusra since the early days of the two-year-old uprising, but that it had refrained from announcing the link for security reasons.

He added that the combined group will now be known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Sham. Sham is a diminutive for Damascus, and is sometimes used to refer to Syria.

“It is time to announce to the Levantine (Syrian) people and the whole world that Jabhat al-Nusra is merely an extension and part of the Islamic State of Iraq,” he said.

He said that the Iraqi group was providing half of its budget to the conflict in Syria. Baghdadi said that the Syrian group would have no separate leader but instead be led by the “people of Syria themselves.”

Jabhat al-Nusra emerged as an offshoot of Iraq’s al-Qaeda branch in mid-2012 as one of a patchwork of disparate rebel groups in Syria.

A top Iraqi intelligence official told The Associated Press in Baghdad that they have always known that “al-Qaeda in Iraq is directing Jabhat al-Nusra.”

He said they announced their unity because of “political, logistical and geographical circumstance.” The official said Iraqi authorities will take “strict security measures to strike them.”

Iraqi officials say the jihadi groups are sharing three military training compounds, logistics, intelligence and weapons as they grow in strength around the Syria-Iraq border, particularly in a sprawling region called al-Jazeera, which they are trying to turn into a border sanctuary they can both exploit.

It could serve as a base of operations to strike either side of the border.

The porous border where the Euphrates river snakes through both countries, and the remote caves and hills of the desert make ideal territory for insurgents to evade Iraqi security forces and smuggle arms and fighters between Iraq and Syria.

For such a high-profile Syrian rebel group to formally join al-Qaeda is likely to spark concerns among backers of the opposition that are in the global terror network’s crosshairs, including both Western countries and Gulf Arab states.

The announcement comes a week after al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri called in an Internet statement for the establishment of an Islamic state in Syria, as a step towards the Islamist goal of establishing an Islamic caliphate in the Middle East.

“Let your fight be for the sake of God, for the sake of bringing God’s sharia to rule,” Zawahiri said. “Do all you can to ensure that the fruit of your struggle, God willing, an Islamic state … a state that would be a building stone in the return of the rightly-guided caliphate.”

Syria’s civil war has killed more than 70,000 people according to UN estimates.

Shoving Israel in the discourse will get your attention … regardless!

Rephrasing: The US & allies’ actions in Syria threaten the security of Israel!

“… This is hardly a new phenomenon. In the early 1980s, the US and its Arab allies supported the Taliban and al-Qaeda as they took up arms against the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Although this strategy may have yielded short-term successes, the US had an opportunity to recognize their mistake after al-Qaeda perpetrated the attacks of September 11, killing thousands of innocent civilians. I am confident that the US and its allies are repeating the same mistake,In the midst of that chaos, it would also become likely that the trend of the al-Qaeda school of thought would swoop in and seize a “golden opportunity” to cleanse the country of non-Sunnis — Twelver Shiites, Alawites, Christians, Jews, Druze and any other heterodox or non-Muslim communities. Even if the bulk of Salafi ire has been directed at Shiites, this expansion of the zone of terror against nonconformists to the Salafi order would ultimately threaten Israel….”

McClatchy’s: "Islamists, secular rebels battle each other"

March 28, 2013

“… Two Syrian rebel groups – one seeking an elected civil government, the other favoring the establishment of a religious state – are battling each other in the city of Tal Abyad, on the border with Turkey, in a sign of the tensions that are likely to rule this country if the government of President Bashar Assad falls.

Four people were killed Sunday in fighting here between the Farouq Battalions, which favors elections, and Jabhat al Nusra, or the Nusra Front, which the United States has declared an al Qaida-affiliated terrorist group….

The rivalry between the groups is a reminder of how divided Syria’s rebel factions are and how inaccurate it is to refer to the anti-Assad forces as if they were a single group, with a single goal. Indeed, while news stories for months often referred to rebels as the Free Syrian Army, that term is more an idea than an organization. Instead, the rebel movement comprises dozens of groups whose ideologies have only one common goal: the toppling of the Assad regime.

“They call us kufar,” or non-Muslims, said Abu Mohammed, who leads a rebel brigade in Shadadeh. … Members of other rebel groups increasingly liken Nusra to the Syrian government in its intolerance of any opposition, and they fear its spies. Nusra has detained secular activists who’ve spoken against it… “It seems we cannot deal with them peacefully,” he said. “So it seems inevitable we will fight them, whether it is before the regime falls or after.”

US, NATO Prepare Syria Intervention: US Official

March 25, 2013
Local Editor
 
A top US commander in Europe said that the US military and NATO are drawing up plans for direct military intervention in Syria.

Adm. James Stavridis, head of the Pentagon’s European Command told a Senate hearing last Tuesday that the US military is “looking at a variety of options” and is “prepared if called upon to be engaged.”
Adm. James Stavridis
Declaring that there was “no end in sight to a vicious civil war,” Stavridis told the panel that “the option of assisting the opposition forces in Syria in ways that would break the deadlock are being actively explored by NATO members,” the Washington Post reported.
The admiral addressed the Senate Armed Service Committee, saying that US and NATO discussions have included providing “lethal support” to the anti-government militias and using direct military force to impose “no-fly zones” in Syria and enforce “arms embargoes” against the Syrian government.

Both Britain and France have called for an emergency meeting of European Union foreign ministers this week on their demand for lifting an EU arms embargo that bars member states from directly shipping weapons to the Western-backed armed opposition.

British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President François Hollande have indicated that they were prepared to act unilaterally if the EU fails to bow to their demand.

For its part, Germany voiced opposition to the lifting of the ban, warning that it will escalate the bloodshed, risk arming Al Qaeda-linked forces, and potentially spread violence throughout the region.

Washington, meanwhile, has signaled its support for British and French moves to directly arm the anti-government militias.

Last Monday, US Secretary of State John Kerry declared that “the United States does not stand in the way of other countries that made a decision to provide arms, whether it’s France or Britain or others.”
