Muslim or Not?

The current wave of atrocities done in the name of the Muslim faith are spanning the whole globe.

From London to Russia, the USA to the Philippines. It seems that the Muslim faith drags in many believers and a certain element of extreme people, that believe in taking their writings to the extreme.

The left wing, bless em! in their very brave attempt to De-stigmatize and make all peoples neutral with equal say and balance for all, is demonstrated in so many circles and on so many levels its hard to shrug this off as a fad.

The extreme leftists like Corbyn and the ‘New Labour Party’ with snowflake liberals that continually fight all aspects of the system to enhance a populist belief in full integration.

US universities attempt to alleviate any concerns by pushing their system farther to left and consequentially more extreme.

One School took it upon themselves to give Christian children lessons in Islam taken to the extreme of actually praying.

As you notice in the film, many parents are upset and yet the board are eager to cut all people off after just being allowed two minutes to state their case, seemingly oblivious to these concerns of parents.

I am not anti Islam, or anti any religion, but if any religion preaches the opposite of what they are being allowed when welcomed to other countries then assimilation will be impossible for future generations.

Anjem Choudary makes absolutely no secret of his aspirations for the future, and is never apologetic for the violence, using tactics of aversion, or denial to put his message across.

Even to the extent of claiming Sharia Law will be the law of the UK one day, yet still left-wing politicians do nothing at all to attempt to stop this hatred at its core level being propagated.

True Choudary was jailed, but for the wrong reasons and it does little to stem the flow of laws that are incompatible with most western societies.

Perhaps that flow can never be stopped if our leaders have a fundamentally different agenda to the people that elect them. A fairly good analogy could be demonstrated in this video…..

It seems that there is actually no problem with radical Muslims at all. They are not actually part of the faith and instead are a separate series of individuals acting on their own independently their holy leaders like Choudary.

As such, according to politicians, you cannot tar a whole faith with the same brush!

Beheaded

This man is not a Muslim Terrorist it would seem. His belief however is that any infidel deserves this treatment and is one of seven billion that are happy to hand out the same punishment to all, from Coptic Christians to British troops on our streets.

It would seem that peoples that have escaped countries that practice Sharia Law are intent on bringing it back for themselves in future generations in their new found homelands.

Even when they still suffer the same extreme penalties of an antiquated religion.

Sharia law_001

This falls nothing short of an erosion of the western society with an active target of spreading their faith with total eradication of any that specifically do not subscribe to their faith.

For instance if I deny Allah and take a stance of say…. an atheist……. this religion believes that anyone that kills me is not guilty of any offense!

That cannot be compatible with any western sort of thinking!

Anti-Assad Death Squads Responsible for Gas Attack

Assad’s wrongfully blamed for Ghouta’s gas attack. Evidence shows insurgents bear full responsibility. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov was clear and unequivocal, saying:

“We have the most serious grounds to believe (Ghouta’s attack) was a provocation.” Assad had nothing to do with it.

“There is no answer to a number of questions we have asked, such as where the weapon was made – at an official factory or using homemade methods,” Lavrov added.

Clear evidence shows insurgents have sarin and other toxic chemicals. Pentagon contractors trained them in their handling and use.

They have surface-to-surface missiles to launch them. They have motive, opportunity and capability to do so. They’ve done it multiple times before. They’ve been caught red-handed with toxic agents.

According to Russian political analyst Sergei Markov:

“We hear this argument that the rebels are not technically or morally capable of doing such a thing, and we simply don’t accept that.”

“We’d like to see previous instances (of toxic chemicals used) properly investigated, because you will find that the rebels have used poison gas before in this conflict.”

Syrian opposition condemns al-Qaida militants

BEIRUT (AP) — Al-Qaida militants fought heavy street battles against Kurdish gunmen in northern Syria on Friday but reached a cease-fire with mainstream Western-backed rebels after fierce fighting near the border with Turkey.

The infighting, which ended with al-Qaida’s takeover of a border town, was some of the worst in recent months between forces seeking to bring down President Bashar Assad and threatened to further fragment an opposition movement outgunned by the regime.

Syria’s main Western-backed opposition group, the Free Syrian Army, condemned the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, the al-Qaida offshoot that overran the town of Azaz. It said the jihadis’ push to establish an Islamic state undermines the rebels’ struggle for a free Syria

Obama waives ban on arming terrorists to allow aid to Syrian opposition

President Obama waived a provision of federal law designed to prevent the supply of arms to terrorist groups to clear the way for the U.S. to provide military assistance to “vetted” opposition groups fighting Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

Some elements of the Syrian opposition are associated with radical Islamic terrorist groups, including al Qaeda, which was responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa., in 2001. Assad’s regime is backed by Iran and Hezbollah.

http://washingtonexaminer.com/obama-waives-ban-on-arming-terrorists-to-allow-aid-to-syrian-opposition/article/2535885

This is really a very troublesome report of supplying terrorists with arms, with the sole aim of Regime Change, and this is not the first time that rebels have been supported by the US Government.

Several scholars have accused the United States of conducting state terrorism. They have written about the liberal democracies and their use of state terrorism, particularly in relation to the Cold War. According to them, state terrorism was used to protect the interest of capitalist elites, and the US organized a neo-colonial system of client states, co-operating with local elites to rule through terror.

Notable works include Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman’s The political economy of human rights (1979), Herman’s The real terror network (1985), Alexander L. George’ Western state terrorism (1991), Frederick Gareau’s State terrorism and the United States (2004) and Doug Stokes’ America’s other war (2005). Of these, Chomsky and Herman are considered the foremost writers on the United States’ involvement with state terrorism.

The issue in the article makes a realistic proposal that most atrocities are committed within the U.S. sphere of influence in the Third World. The premise being that if you influence you are basically in control of those fractions, and even today we see Sen John McCain met with rebels that are quite happy to murder indiscriminately.

John McCain Pushes Back Against Lebanese Report Of Photo With Syrian Rebel Kidnapper

The Daily Star of Lebanon reported that McCain posed with a Syrian rebel kidnapper in a photograph. His office denies that the man identified himself and condemned the group’s action. (AP Photo/Syrian Emergency Task Force, Mouaz Moustafa)

The Daily Star of Lebanon reported Thursday that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was photographed with members of a group responsible for kidnapping 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims. His office, however, condemned their actions and said that no one in the meeting called themselves by the names mentioned in the report.

The Star reported that Mohammad Nour, a chief spokesman and photographer for the rebel group the Northern Storm Brigade, was photographed with McCain, according to families of the kidnapped and one person who was released. Abu Ibrahim, another man with a reported connection to the group, was also in the photograph.

What we are seeing is more and more evidence of massacres on all parts of the web and you only need to Google or go to You-tube to see the atrocities taking place daily, and yet the West seems to have blinkers in place or consider these images as irrelevant evidence.

ImageOne could of course argue that Assad has killed more, but should the West support rebel  fractions, and in particular, those that for 11 years have been fighting against. More reports of Al Queda joining the fray in Syria anticipating US support. Additionally can those elements actually be controlled? if not a never ending war would be Syria’s fate for many years to come.

You can see the whole of this report here which asks:

Bashar Al-Assad’s New War: Has Syria’s Civil War Been Hijacked By Foreign Fighters?

The power struggles, political and religious affiliations, the regular defections, and almost daily changes in support cannot guarantee that any weapons sent to help ‘freedom fighters’ will in fact be in sole custody of the right group, which brings the question of whether they could ultimately be used against troops of the West.

O’bagy it seems is not what she appears……

Embattled Syria analyst vouched for rebel group that depicted burning US Capitol

Image 1.jpg

Elizabeth O’Bagy, a pro-Syrian opposition analyst whose credibility has come under fire, might have even more explaining to do – as court documents show she once vouched for a rebel group whose website displayed extremist and anti-American images.

Among the pictures was one showing a burning U.S. Capitol.

O’Bagy was fired earlier this week by the Institute for the Study of War for allegedly lying about her academic credentials. Her writings had been used by U.S. officials to bolster their case for military action against the Assad regime.

O’Bagy discussed the rebel group in question in a June 19, 2013 signed affidavit filed in the case of American Eric Harroun, who was indicted for fighting alongside the terror group al-Nusra in Syria.

O’Bagy’s signed declaration, which included a breakdown of rebel groups and their varying degrees of affiliation to Al Qaeda-linked terrorists, was used by Harroun’s defense to argue that the former Army medic had actually fought with a splinter group and not a terrorist one – a group tied to the one O’Bagy described.

In the document, O’Bagy said she had reviewed the apparent Facebook page for the Al Aqsa Islamic Brigades, and found no signs of jihadist leanings.

“I have also reviewed a Facebook site … that purports to be associated with the al Aqsa (Islamic) brigades,” she stated in the affidavit. “The facebook site does not appear to be particularly jihadist in orientation, and posts videos associated with groups that are all affiliated with the Free Syrian Army.”

Yet newly uncovered images from the group’s Facebook page depict otherwise – including one that shows the U.S. Capitol building engulfed in flames, and armed fighters marching in the foreground. Other images show what appears to be a black-and-white flag, which is viewed by intelligence analysts as a sign of a group’s Islamist bent (although O’Bagy wrote that many fighters not affiliated with jihadist groups use a similar flag).

The Facebook postings, which had been up for weeks, were recently taken down following an NBC News investigative report about the group.

O’Bagy said in the court document that there are several groups that go by the name of Al Aqsa. But the Facebook site she referenced in the affidavit is the same one that contained the extremist images – although it’s possible she never saw those pictures.

O’Bagy, a Georgetown University alumna, was put in the media spotlight following an op-ed piece she wrote in The Wall Street Journal which was cited by Secretary of State John Kerry and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in their case for a military strike in Syria.

Specifically, Kerry read a quote from the op-ed in which she wrote that Islamic extremist factions are not “spearheading the fight against the Syrian government,” but rather that the struggle is being led by “moderate opposition forces.”

Since then, O’Bagy has appeared on multiple news outlets, including Fox News, CNN and NPR, to discuss Syria. She has weighed in on complicated ethnic and religious challenges in the region.

Her credibility and objectivity came into question over her work with a Syrian opposition group called the Syrian Emergency Task Force.

The Journal, after the op-ed was first published, included a clarification noting she is “affiliated” with that group, and that the organization subcontracts with the U.S. and British governments “to provide aid to the Syrian opposition.”

O’Bagy, in an interview last week on Fox News, claimed she is not an employee of the task force, and is not a lobbyist. She said she works with them as an independent contractor, and her contract fee comes through U.S. government contracts.

She also defended herself on Twitter, claiming she is “not paid to advocate” the view that the U.S. should get involved in Syria.

The D.C.-based scholar was fired this week from the Institute for the Study of War for allegedly lying about her education credentials.The institute posted a statement on its website claiming she misled the organization about having a Ph.D.She reportedly claims she had defended her dissertation, but was waiting for the degree.

Calls to O’Bagy from FoxNews.com on Thursday were not returned.

US and Russia agree Syria chemical weapons deal in Geneva

“Well, well,well….. politicians actually doing their political job.
This is really a bit of good news amongst all the rhetoric……. today Obama is breathing a sigh of relief, but to be honest, no thanks to him or Kerry. Putin is exploiting their foolishness, but has scored real points in this………
The red line, degrading the Soviet compromise, the vote in the house, British escape, the pandemonium caused by reckless intolerant attitude….

John Kerry and Sergei Lavrov
This should be a lesson to the Brits too…….. not to blindly follow.
All these are relevant issues, but at the end of the day, who brokered the deal…… THE PEOPLE DID!
Starting with the Brits to defeat a vote that showed real sensibility form the parliamentarians……
Then Obama putting his toe in the water with the Americans finding that it was scalding hot forced a huge amount of backpedaling, and best of all, FORCED NEGOTIATION between all sides.
The only negotiation forced by the will of the people in 50 yrs and the ONLY one that can be called a success…….. Now lets start looking at every single weapon that has an indiscriminate nature………….
Seeing you guys are actually talking now, lets look at depleted uranium, drones, atomic weapons………. its a good start!”

The reasons NOT to invade Syria

With public debate and the public opinion for a non intervention, we see sides putting together arguments for, which seem to be heavily outnumbered by the arguments against. Apart from the fact of course is that the USA have been fighting some of these terrorists since 9/11, and today it appears they would like to join forces with them.

Today we have a selection of pictures of social justice……….

Elizabeth O’Bagy, Syria Researcher Cited By Kerry And McCain In Hearings, Fired For Ph.D Claim

Update**********

On the 7th September I posted an article on Elizabeth O’Bagy who was supplying misinformation to Kerry and McCain.
entitled: Syria just gets worse

Today this lady was fired for being ….not so honest

Who are the Syrian rebels?

This is a really interesting piece that was first published by CNN.

As most of us in the Western world know absolutely nothing about the relative structure of the rebels? its good to see and get some sort of understanding as to their history.

I would suppose that Congress is at least as informed, and that is the very worrying aspect, if you consider that Barak Barfi is a Research Fellow at the New America Foundation, where he specializes in Arab and Islamist affairs. so is likely to be well informed of the basis for the groups, and if his analogy is correct, the US now proposes to support Al Qaeda who have been the target for the US for the last 12 yrs…….. very worrying indeed.

It shows to me that either the Americans have had the wrong assumption for some time, or they are clutching at straws to have a regime change that even entertains an enemy that has been a huge thorn in the side of the US for so long.

Editor’s note: Barak Barfi is a Research Fellow at the New America Foundation, where he specializes in Arab and Islamist affairs.

(CNN) — The Syrian civil war has birthed rebel groups across a wide ideological and geographic spectrum. Some are nationalists bent on liberating their country from a ruthless regime. Others view the conflict as a springboard to a global jihad. A number are active only in their home province, while others are present throughout the country.

A closer look at Syrian rebel units illustrates the balance of forces on the battlefield. In examining these groups, it is clear that those allied with the United States have become increasingly marginalized by jihadists and Salafists, who are the most powerful players in the revolution.

The Free Syrian Army

The Free Syrian Army (FSA) was created by Col. Riyad al-Asad in July 2011 and is supported by Western nations. Today it is led by Gen. Salim Idriss. More a loosely linked umbrella organization than a cohesive fighting force with a hierarchical chain of command, the organization welcomes everyone. In December 2012, donor nations brokered the creation of a Supreme Military Council (SMC), hoping it could unify the disparate ranks, but it has failed to do so.

Syrian-based commanders remain disobedient, illustrating the tenuous influence of exiled FSA leaders. These officers, located in Jordan and Turkey, are nationalists who emphasize respecting the rights of all Syrians. Local leaders inside Syria are far less tolerant. After meeting with Idriss in May, U.S. Sen. John McCain issued a statement: “General Idriss and his fighters share many of our interests and values.”

Washington has provided nonlethal aid, but promised weapons have not materialized. The FSA is active in every Syrian province and reportedly has 80,000 men under Idriss’ control. Nevertheless, the FSA is plagued by a high level of attrition. Fighters seeking a more cohesive structure and stronger ideology desert to Islamist units. Others leave for better-funded brigades.

Moderate Islamists

Moderate Islamist groups identify with the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood. These groups aspire to replace the secular canon with Islamic law, curtail individual freedoms, and subordinate minorities. They have coalesced around the Syrian Islamic Liberation Front (SILF), a 19-faction alliance established in September 2012, whose leader boasted it has more than 40,000 fighters. It comprises some of the largest units in Syria, including the Tawhid Brigade, the most powerful group in the northern province of Aleppo. In Damascus, the coalition’s key group is Liwa al-Islam.

It has captured sophisticated surface-to-air missiles. The SILF also includes the Faruq Brigades, a dominant unit in the central province of Homs. One of its members made headlines when a video surfaced of him eating an organ of a regime soldier. Moderate Islamists cooperate with the FSA and participate in joint operations. They communicate with Western governments but receive no aid from them.

Salafists

Salafists are puritanical Muslims who seek to return the Islamic community to the first three generations following its birth. They shun modernism and Western influence, and espouse a literalist and uncompromising reading of canonical texts. They have promoted a vitriolic sectarian discourse depicting the ruling Alawi minority as heretics meriting death, and have targeted Alawi civilians.

Eleven Salafist groups joined forces in December 2012 to create the Syrian Islamic Front (SIF). They include Ahrar al-Sham — one of the most powerful rebel brigades, active in several provinces from Latakia to al-Raqqa; and al-Haqq Brigade in Homs. Members say the organization has more than 30,000 fighters, including some foreigners, but mostly Syrians. The SIF has shunned suicide bombing but uses car bombs to target regime forces.

Though its platform is vague, it constantly references the integral role of Islam in Syria’s future, but declares “our course is the centrist and moderate course, far from exceeding the proper bounds of religion.” As proof, it offers ambiguous assurances to minorities. The SIF asserts that its conflict is limited to Syria. Salafist brigades cooperate with all other rebel units. They work with Western journalists but eschew their governments.

Jihadists

Though jihadists associated with al-Qaeda were latecomers, they are now the most powerful groups on the battlefield. Jabhat al-Nusra was created in January 2012. The group was composed of Syrians who fought in Iraq while it was under American rule. Jabhat al-Nusra pioneered the use of suicide bombing, targeting both civilian and military targets.

In April, al-Qaeda’s Iraqi affiliate created a new organization called the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). It quickly absorbed many Jabhat al-Nusra units. ISIS has a presence in almost every Syrian province. The Emigrants and Helpers Army, another jihadist group, is led by Abu Umar the Chechnyan. Its members are largely drawn from the Caucasus region.

American intelligence organizations believe there are more than 6,000 foreign jihadists, including Westerners, in Syria. They have killed Alawi civilians, kidnapped Westerners and attacked other brigades. They control key infrastructure, such as dams and oil installations. ISIS wants to use the Syrian conflict as a platform to destabilize neighboring countries. As jihadists grow in strength, they have sidelined other brigades, and captured their bases and weapons. Nevertheless, they cooperate with rebel groups across the ideological spectrum.

FSA criminal outfits

As consolidation occurs within the rebel ranks, Free Syrian Army units that dabble in criminal activity are increasingly being squeezed. In Aleppo, smugglers created the Asifa al-Shamal Brigade. The group earned hefty fees controlling the Bab al-Salama border crossing. But its criminal activities led other units to break up its monopoly. Recently it was forced to relinquish partial control of Bab al-Salama, and ISIS has taken over many of its checkpoints. The Aleppo-based Ghuraba al-Sham, another brigade whose leaders have criminal roots, has seen a similar decline.

As the FSA has lost ground, jihadists and Salafists have gradually become the most important actors in the Syrian revolution. And an American strike against the regime will only make them stronger.
