Syria and Kurdish massacres: US backed FSA fighting side by side with Al-Qaeda affiliates

Modern Tokyo Times

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and al-Nusra are both affiliated to al-Qaeda. Yet despite this President Obama continues to support the Free Syrian Army (FSA) which openly fights alongside both terrorist factions. Currently, the FSA is also assisting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and al-Nusra in their ethnic cleansing of Kurds. Recently, hundreds of Kurds have been brutally killed by forces being supported by major NATO and Gulf powers. This includes the slaughter of vast numbers of Kurdish children. Therefore, not only is Obama tainting America with its alignment with terrorist and sectarian forces which are cleansing religious minorities like the Alawites, Christians, and the Shia; but now the Obama administration is tainting itself just like the Erdogan government in Turkey with the ethnic cleansing of Kurds in the north of Syria.

It doesn’t take a genius to realize that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and al-Nusra are not fully focused on Damascus; on the contrary, they are cleansing religious and ethnic groups in order to install a Sharia Islamic state based on draconian Gulf Islam emanating from Saudi Arabia. This reality means that al-Qaeda, which was behind September 11 and killing thousands of American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq, is now an open ally with America in Syria. Of course, Obama and other politicians like John McCain and Lindsey Graham in America can manipulate language openly in order to cover up their deceit. However, video footage and photos clearly show the FSA working side-by-side with al-Qaeda affiliated groups.

Not surprisingly, the recent massacres against Kurdish civilians is being met by denial, silence and trying to cover-up the sectarian and terrorist ratlines. Yet for the Kurds it is clear that certain NATO and Gulf powers are arming their adversaries, while the Kurds in Iraq and the PKK are involved in deals with Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey. However, how much longer can Kurdish political leaders in Iraq and the PKK deal with Erdogan given the mass slaughter of Kurds in northern Syria? After all, modern day Turkey is a conduit for military arms and boosting terrorist numbers in Syria which are now slaughtering Kurdish women and children with open glee.

Returning back to the duplicity of the Obama administration and political elites in France and the United Kingdom – then how much longer can these nations get away with supporting al-Qaeda affiliates by stealth? Gulf petrodollars, Jordan and Turkey are regionally supporting terrorist and sectarian forces. While powerful Western states are involved in the arming, logistics, training, planning and other areas of the conflict to various degrees.

The Long War Journal states that “We have reported numerous times that the Free Syrian Army actively colludes with al Qaeda’s branches, the ISIL and the Al Nusrah Front for the People in the Levant. The report of the joint celebration in Aleppo is just further evidence that the Free Syrian Army conducts activities with al Qaeda in Syria. Inexplicably, the US is continuing with a plan to arm the FSA.”

In a recent military battle Col. Abdul Jabbar al-Okaidi, who is supported by America and other outside nations, gave gratitude to “our brothers al-Muhajireen wal Ansar and others….We’re here to kiss every hand pressed on the trigger.”

Col. Abdul Jabbar al-Okaidi, just like other leading people within the military council which is supported by Western nations, is making it clear that he welcomes the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant and al-Nusra. This reality is clear evidence that Obama, McCain and Graham – and many other within the broad church in America – are siding openly with al-Qaeda affiliates which are cleansing Alawites, Christians, Kurds, the Shia and torturing and beheading Sunni civilians who are loyal to the Syrian government.

It remains to be seen if internal pressure will work against Western political leaders siding with al-Qaeda affiliated groups which fight alongside the FSA. Similarly, it also remains to be seen if Kurds in Iraq and Turkey will continue to be passive while Erdogan is aiding and abetting in the massacres against Kurdish civilians. This reality is based on Turkey openly assisting terrorist factions which are killing Kurds in northern Syria.
