Al Qaeda gaining ground in Syria

Updated December 6 - see below

"...Extremist groups among the Syrian opposition are responsible for some of the gains. Rebel commanders and outside analysts say the groups have grown more powerful in recent months because of funding and weapons from wealthy Arab donors in the Persian Gulf region as well as Syrian businessmen outside the country.One Islamist militia with suspected ties to al-Qaeda has seized two government military bases in the past two weeks.

"...At least half a dozen religious extremist groups have sprung up in Syria since the beginning of the year. The group that has captured the most attention and appears to have had the greatest degree of success is Jabhat al-Nusra, which is thought to have links to al-Qaeda.

"Since the group was formed in January, it has asserted responsibility for a series of suicide attacks against military and security targets. Its forces have overrun at least two government military bases in the past two weeks, collecting weapons left behind by Syrian troops, opposition activists said.

“Unfortunately, there are more extremist groups receiving arms,' said Andrew Tabler, a Syria expert at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy...”   (End quote, Washington Post). 

The preceding report reveals that Al Qaeda in Syria is backed by the Gulf states. I thought we were at war with Al Qaeda? What sanctions have we put into place against the Gulf states who are backing Al Qaeda in Syria? How is it that we are not fighting Al Qaeda in Syria? Why is the focus only on fighting Assad’s government? Is this Afghanistan 1980 all over again, when the US funded an anti-Soviet Afghan resistance that included Salafist terrorists like Osama bin Laden?

What is being done to oppose Al Qaeda in Syria? All we hear about is the Iranian “threat." Al Qaeda in Syria gets a pass. This is more than weird. Some dare call it conspiracy. Once again the US government is building up enemies that we will ask the American people to fight in the future. So who actually is ultimately behind Al Qaeda, if not the US government? We send drones against Al Qaeda in Pakistan and Yemen but in Syria they are left to operate freely and grow in strength. The Cryptocracy needs to secretly bolster enemies in order to keep fattening the military-industrial complex and an endless foreign war/world policeman orientation in the United States.

December 6 Update: According to the Wall Street Journal (Dec. 6, p. A12), Al-Qaeda in Syria —"Jabhat al-Nusra” - is responsible for several terrorist car bombings in Syria; “Saudi Arabia and Qatar...are directly supplying arms and cash” to this Islamist extremist group. 

So where are the U.S. sanctions against the Saudis and Qatar?

 How is it that these two exceedingly wealthy nations can arm and bankroll Al-Qaeda in Syria without American sanctions, Congressional hearings or media outrage? 

The answer is, the US government, the US Congress and the establishment media are all implicated in the conspiracy to build up Al-Qaeda in Syria, along with their partners in treason, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The “War on Terror” is nothing but an end-run around the US Constitution to stampede the American people into permitting a police state in America. 

If there was an authentic war on terror, Saudi Arabia and Qatar would be heavily sanctioned and the traitors in the US government who are enabling the Syrian branch of Al Qaeda would be prosecuted, given a fair jury trial, convicted and hanged.


Syrian war is now a war against Christians
"The Islamic Emirate of Aleppo"

By Marco Tosatti | Vatican Insider

An Italian website that gives voice to the Christian monastic communities in Syria and is a precious source of information on the situation of religion in the context of the current crisis, reveals a growing pressure on the Christian minority, especially in Aleppo. “In the parish of St. Dimitri many Christians find themselves in a state of extreme hunger and destitution: Muslim benefactors are offering Christian families between €600 and €1200 for every member that converts to Islam.”

In Aleppo, a city that is historically tolerant and culturally heterogeneous, fundamentalist rebels are sowing the seeds of the Islamic Emirate of Aleppo and have issued a fatwa against “the immoral habit of allowing women to drive cars.” According to some sources, in the Idlib district it is compulsory for women to wear the veil, or hijab, in public.

...precise testimonies on the nature of the religious fundamentalism that is starting to characterise the Syrian conflict are being sent from Moscow, where the National Coordination Committee for Democratic Change (NCC) arrived... The committee published a list of Saudi mercenaries present in Syria. “We are against the presence of foreign mercenaries…these people destroy Syria. Unfortunately, there are some political ‘players' such as Turkey which allow them to invade Syria. And Syria is not the only target. We are just a link in the chain.”

"'When we finish with Assad, we will fight the U.S.!' one Nusra fighter shouted in the northeastern Syrian city of Ras al Ayn when he was told an American journalist present. He laughed as he said it and then got into a van and drove off, leaving the journalist unable to ask whether it had been a joke."

This is typical NWO propaganda. Rebels might attack a Syrian base, but the run for it. The fact that Obama is predicting a chemical weapons attack is a sign of frustration that Assad is so well supported. In fact, rebels are dropping like flies and this is supported by the low level MSM coverage...the rebels are losing.

My guess is that the NWO will use a false flag chemical attack to justify a ground invasion by Turkey and so WW3 gets off.

And out comes the "chemical weapons" prop, right on cue. It's amazing how much mileage they get on the same tired old routine. Here's hoping their end is right around the corner, and that it will at least match that of Dickens' infamous propmaster, Fagin.
