Syrian Rebels Pledge Their Allegiance To Religious Freedom And Democracy … No Wait


If by “freedom” and “democracy” you mean Al-Qaeda’s “teach-your-children-to-love-death” al-Zawahiri …

BBC – “The leader of the al-Nusra Front, a jihadist group fighting in Syria, has pledged allegiance to the leader of al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri.

Abu Mohammed al-Jawlani said the group’s behaviour in Syria would not change as a result.

Al-Nusra claims to have carried out many suicide bombings and guerrilla attacks against state targets.

On Tuesday, al-Qaeda in Iraq announced a merger with al-Nusra, but Mr Jawlani said he had not been consulted on this.

Al-Nusra has been designated as a terrorist organisation by the US.

Debates among Western leaders over whether to arm Syria’s rebels have often raised the concern of weapons ending up in the hands of groups such as al-Nusra.

‘The sons of al-Nusra Front pledge allegiance to Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahiri,’ Mr Jawlani said in a recording released on Wednesday.

But Mr Jawlani said al-Nusra had not been consulted on the merger with al-Qaeda in Iraq and insisted his group would not change its stance in Syria.

The al-Nusra statement assured Syrians that the ‘good behaviour’ they had experienced from the front on the ground would continue unchanged, the BBC’s Jim Muir reports from neighbouring Lebanon.

Mr Jawlani said that the oath of allegiance to Zawahiri ‘will not change anything in its policies’, our correspondent adds.” Read more.

Al-Qaeda Leader Zawahiri Urges Establishment of Islamic State in Syria to Help Return of Caliphate – “Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has urged rebels to fight to establish an Islamic state in Syria, in an online audio message Sunday in which he also warned France against its military intervention in Mali. ‘Let your fight be in the name of Allah and with the aim of establishing Allah’s sharia (law) as the ruling system,’ he said in his first message posted on the Internet since last November. ‘Do all that you can so that your holy war yields a jihadist Islamic state,’ said Zawahiri, adding that such a state would help to re-establish the Islamic ‘caliphate’ system of rule.” Read more.

Flashback: Syria: Islamic Insurgents Brainwashing Children For The Cause Of Allah, ‘Sharia Is Our Only Law, Democracy Is Disgusting’ – “Disturbing footage of Jabhat Al Nusra insurgents using propaganda to brainwash children with their Jihadist ideals. Hatred of non-Muslims and contempt of democracy being just two of them. Several young children, some of whom have already been compelled to cover from head to toe are filmed singing songs in honour of Jabhat Al Nusra which also condemn ‘kuffars’ and their ideals while pledging loyalty to Jihad and Jabhat Al Nusra – Syria’s major Al Qaeda front group.” Watch video.

Flashback: Syrian Rebels: After Assad ‘We Have A Big Fight Against The Jews Ahead Of Us’ – “The results of Saudi Arabia’s tireless efforts were on display in Al-Midan, a suburb in southern Damascus where I recently interviewed rebel fighters. Mateen, a fighter who claimed to have traveled from Afghanistan, shared his ideas for Syria’s future after ridding it of the Assad dynasty. ‘We have to build a society of respect and brotherhood in accordance with the Prophet’s commandments … we have a big fight against the Jews ahead of us. We will take that up, God willing.’” Read more.
