Al-Qaeda Chief urges Syrians to depend on Allah not the west

Share:

Al-Qaida’s chief has called on Muslims from other countries to support rebels in Syria seeking to overthrow President Bashar Assad, saying they cannot depend on the West for help.

Ayman al-Zawahri, in a videotaped statement released late Saturday, asked Muslims in Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey to join the uprising against Assad’s “pernicious, cancerous regime.” All four states border Syria.

A senior Iraqi security official also told the Associated Press on Saturday that intelligence over the last four months has revealed a flow of al-Qaida-linked fighters from the northern Iraqi city of Mosul into Syria.

The comments by both the Iraqi official and al-Zawahri came a day after two suicide car bombers struck security compounds in Aleppo, a Syrian city that had been relatively peaceful throughout the country’s 11-month-uprising. Though there was no claim of responsibility, suicide bombings are a hallmark of al-Qaida.

“There is no treatment for (the Assad regime) other than removal,” al-Zawahri says in the eight-minute video posted on jihadist websites, according to U.S.-based SITE Intel Group, which monitors militant messages.

“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,” he said. “Instead, depend on Allah alone and then on your sacrifices, resistance, and steadfastness.”

He urged Syrians to oppose help from the Arab League and “its corrupt agent governments.” The League has put forth a plan to try to end violence in Syria but it suspended an observers mission to the country after the regime flouted its agreement to the terms of the plan.

Hours later, a Sunni sheik in Iraq’s northern Kurdish region said a group of clerics in the area is calling for a Muslim jihad, or holy war, against Assad’s regime.

“Jihad is the duty of every Muslim against the Assad regime,” said Sheik Abdul-Rahman Abdul-Karim Barzanji, describing the edict issued by the Union of the Scholars of Islam in Kurdistan. “Any support from any Muslim or country is forbidden.”

“Jihad” is literally translated as “holy war” but Islam dictates also interpret it as supporting fighters with money or other support – and not necessary fighting.

Egyptian-born al-Zawahri took over al-Qaida after Osama bin Laden was killed last May by a U.S. special forces raid on his hideout in Pakistan.

The Iraqi official said at least two Syrian suicide bombers who trained in Mosul have crossed the border to join the fight in Syria.

Fighters armed with guns and explosives also have headed from Iraq to Syria, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss intelligence.

A U.S. official in Washington, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, said it would not be surprising if Iraqi al-Qaida fighters are aiding Syrian rebels, but would not discuss or confirm specific intelligence. However, the official noted that al-Qaida in Iraq long has had an operational network in Syria.

Al-Zawahri in the past clashed with al-Qaida in Iraq. Both he and bin Laden urged followers to focus attacks against U.S. and Israeli interests, and sharply condemned the network’s Iraqi wing for targeting Shiite Muslims during the years that Iraq teetered on the brink of civil war.

Al-Qaida fighters in Iraq generally have confined attacks to their home country.

    Looks like a ball-peen hammer hit the middle of his head … or flying metal from one of his ‘kill-anyone’ bombs.

    That’s the sound of a bearded mullah landing on a bandwagon.

  5. This guy is a fake , he will now try to show his affiliation with the free Syrian Army  in order to demonize the freedom movement.
     
    Pravda news from Russia now spreading a strange news  “USA, Israel gearing up for Valentine’s Day massacre”(In Syria) you will find it  on the net and this article is telling that terrorist will use chemical bomb in Syria as a false flag operation to blame Assad!!!! An exerpt of that article is as follows…….

    “Pravda.Ru is informed by Syrian sources that there has been movement of chemical agents among the terrorists and that a false flag operation is planned for Valentine’s Day.

    A massacre of colossal proportions will be blamed on the Assad government forces in order to bring down the weight of the western war dogs on Syria and to force Russia to change its balanced call for dialogue and diplomacy. This must not be allowed to happen, so we are giving notice here and now that plans for such an attack are underway, just like the Homs false flag, timed exactly for the UN resolution vote. ” 

    Well this is the man Ayman al-Zawahri is now appointed to claim responsibility or to imply his presence in Syria in order to give Bashars false flag operation a credibility. Please google ” Fake Al  Qaeda ” by michale rivero , it has the full story.

    1. sooner or later assad family race will be vanished with or with out chemical weapons conspiracy theory and the devil party race will follow them!!

    3. Are these the old chemical weapons of Saddam’s? You know, the ones that couldn’t be found in Gulf War Two. Somebody’s been digging them up in the desert.

      Well, the Russians would know. They helped Assad bury them. Are they spreading counter rumors before the dirty deed?

      1. After the Libyan Gaddafi government fall I have seen news about Gaddafis chemical weapon sold to Hezbollah and Hamas. It was a breaking news during that time.  If you google the following  then you will find more than hundred article all dated around April,2011. 

        “Libyan Rebels Have Sold Chemical Weapons To Hamas And Hezbollah” 

        There is no benefit for the Free Syrian Army to use chemical weapon on Syrians but Assad , Hezbollah and Iranian Mullah guard do have intention to demonize the Syrian resistance. This click trio are desperate to affiliate the Free Syrian Army with Alqaeda/USA/Israel etc in order to make their killing Syrian legitimate and thats why this Iranian stooge Ayman al-Zawahri is brought in to the picture who will eventually claim responsibility on behalf of imaginary Alqaeda.   They have used artillery shells few days before and during 1982 this Assad dynasty flattened the city of Homs.

    I presume that the cause of democracy, freedom,and human rights  in Syria would be better served by this clown throwing his support and experience behind the Syrian revolution. Is God about to punish the Syrian people more than they have been punished for the past 40 years?
