Echoes of Libya: al Qaeda backs Syrian rebels, Arab League vows increased support for uprising

By End the Lie

Ayman al-Zawahiri, widely regarded as al Qaeda’s current number one figure, has called upon the rebels in Syria – who already have strong ties to the West – to continue their campaign against one of the few people on earth continuing to oppose Western hegemony.

A common misconception amongst the Western public is that if you seek to expose the corruption and highly duplicitous nature of the West’s approach to these so-called revolutions, you somehow agree with or are defending the target of the uprising.

This couldn’t be further from the truth, and I do not think that foreign nations should be meddling in the domestic affairs of other countries, especially when such involvement is focused on regime change but this kind of flawed logic allows individuals in the West to be demonized for questioning “popular” uprisings abroad.

The West, especially the United States, has been taking a prominent role in supporting the Syrian opposition for months now – even going as far as to pump propaganda into the country in order to foment unrest – something which has lead Syria to (rightly, I might add) complain about America’s role in the uprising.

Obviously this was exactly the same in the case of Libya where one of the most prominent rebel groups was the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG). The LIFG is not only a terrorist organization listed by the United States Department of State, but also implicated by a 2007 West Point Combating Terrorism Center report.

The West Point Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) report found that the most fighters per capita among those who traveled to Iraq to fight American troops were from eastern Libya, specifically the cities of Benghazi and Darnah.

These cities became the breeding ground for the Libyan uprising and at one point in last October, there was an al Qaeda flag flying over the courthouse in Benghazi.

In Libya it was even reported in the establishment news that the rebels not only had ties to terrorist groups like al Qaeda but indeed al Qaeda itself was actually sending fighters directly into the country to help topple Gaddafi.

Of course somehow the Western media is still able to – or at least gives the impression that they are able to – walk away with this information thinking that the uprising is a legitimate and organic movement which should be supported and defended, even though it has the backing of terrorist organizations with intimate ties to Western intelligence.

These al Qaeda stooges always couch their statements in hollow anti-Western rhetoric, but all one must do is look at their actions to see what they are truly after: sustaining a war in the Middle East which is now growing around the world while getting countless Muslims killed, helping strip the American people of our most essential liberties, all while reaping untold profits for the war profiteers.

“Don’t depend on the West and Turkey, which had deals, mutual understanding and sharing with this regime for decades and only began to abandon it after they saw it faltering,” said Ayman al-Zawahiri.

This is completely ridiculous because he is actually telling the Syrian people to carry out the exact operation the West is seeking while trying to seem anti-Western. It would be laughable if it was not taken seriously by so many individuals abroad.

It is also somewhat ridiculous for Zawahiri to be claiming that the Syrian opposition shouldn’t be depending on Turkey after Turkey was accused of helping run armed incursions into Syria, one of which was allegedly thwarted by the Syrian military.

Meanwhile, the Arab League has stepped up their game against Syria, with Saudi Foreign Minister Saud al-Faisal saying that the League has to “give all forms of support” to the Syrian opposition, which very well might be a hint at either military intervention or military aid.

Officials from the Arab League also called for complete stoppage of “all forms of diplomatic cooperation” with the Syrian government along with “tighter economic sanctions” according to Press TV.

France and the United States have also proposed to set up a meeting of the “Friends of Syria” anti-government group in Tunisia in late February, which would just be an extension of the close relationship the West has had with the Syrian opposition for some time now.

Just like in the case of Libya, some American politicians have been quick to jump behind the Syrian rebels, including Republican Senator John McCain who has been a proponent of arming the rebels, just as he was with the Libyan opposition.

Months ago McCain was even calling the Libyan rebels heroes, when these are the same “heroes” that are now torturing people to death and committing atrocities just as bad as or worse than Gaddafi.

The situation in Syria is far from simple, and if you want to truly get a sense of what is going on there you’re going to need to do a lot of reading. I might suggest you start with the following:

    We all know that there will be a Referendum in the North of Kosovo, for the Non-Albanians to express that they do not want to be murdered, driven from their houses and land, or their friends and families to suffer the same fate.

    Opinion Polls show that there will be a 98 % vote by these Non-Albanians who do not want to be ruled by Racist Albanians who hate all other Races, especially if they have property that the Albanians can steal.

    The Muslims of the Balkans have installed their Puppets in the Balkans and Serbian Politicians and High Officials should be asked if they will help rig the Vote, and if they have Secretly converted to Islam with a Secret Harem, and Doctors should check to see if any of them have a vasectomy to have a Secret Harem.

    It will come as a surprise to many American Citizens; that Al-Qaeda and the American Military Industrial Complex are really Allies, even though they prevent to be enemies.

    We saw this in Libya, where America was supporting the Rebels while falsely claiming, that they did not know who they were, because they could not say that Al-Qaeda is the American Government’s Secret Ally, because of the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attacks.

    It can be compared to a Graffiti Cleaning Business who hires People to make graffiti, because they will get paid to clean it up.

    The American Military Industrial Complex receives taxpayer’s Money, and Al-Qaeda gets to conquer Territory and impose Sharia Law on the People of those conquered territories.

    There is much material on the Internet that shows that Osama Bin Laden had been to the Balkans, and this was Muslim Albania, and Muslim Albanians of surrounding Countries.

    This occurred most notably on the territory of Muslim Albanian inhabitants of some parts of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, and parts of Serbia’s Province of Kosovo.

    Osama Bin Laden sent trained Mujahideen mercenaries from the Middle East and Central Asia to fight in the ranks of the Bosnian Muslim Army in Bosnia Herzegovina, and in the ranks of the Euphemistically named Kosovo Liberation Army in 1998-99, and it was to support NATO’s war effort.

    The Kosovo Albanian Muslims were trained in terrorism against what Al-Qaeda considers are Infidels, and the Kosovo Liberation Army, and many Kosovo Albanians want freedom from living with other Races, and they want Freedom from have to live with what they consider to be Infidels.

    The Kosovo Liberation Army was on the American State Department’s Terrorist List, but President Clinton dropped it off that terrorist list, because he was having problems with the Monica Lewinsky Scandal, and there are some People who think that President Clinton has fantasised about having a Secret Harem.

    We all know Bill Clinton has a Boulevard named after him, and a Statue of him in the Muslim City of Pristina, Kosovo.

    These Balkan Muslim Terrorists become Greater Terrorists because they had the support of the Foremost of all current Terrorists, America.

    We know that America knows how to install Puppets in many Countries, especially Continental Europe, and they can do this without the Majority of the General Populations being aware of it.

    I want to say that I do not have a problem with someone who is a Muslim, as long as he respects the Rights of Others, but I do have a problem with Balkan and European Politicians and High Officials who are Secret Muslims, because it proves that they have a Secret Agenda.

    The Non-Albanians in Northern part of Serbia’s Province of Kosovo, are voting in a Referendum to have freedom and democracy in their own Legal Country of Serbia.

    The Muslim Albanians of Serbia’s Province of Kosovo have Referendums to break away from their Legal Country using American Lies, and they do this, because they do not want Infidels or People of other Races in their localities, and they have been scheming this since their 1878 league of Prizren Public Declaration.

    I realized that I should have written that Al-Qaeda and the American Military Industrial Complex are really Allies, even though they only pretend to be enemies for their mutual benefit.

    Any real Muslim knows that “Muslim” terrorists are not Muslims. All of these fake Muslims will realize this when they are burning.

    Islam is peace, not war, death and fear.

    By the way, thank you for continuing to expose this fake terrorism, the truth about Islam and Muslims, and helping us bring the world toward a society where there is nothing but peace. There need not be war and killing.

    Syrians: DON’T TRUST THE WEST. And don’t trust a single person that allies with the West like al Qaeda, Muslim Brotherhood, etc.
