Hezbollah funding the defense of Al Qaeda linked leader


hezbollah flag gunHezbollah hired a lawyer to defend Jamal Daftardar, a senior commander in the Al-Qaeda-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigades,  Ash-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper reported on Thursday.

Hezbollah’s action reportedly surprised the legal and judicial circles , especially since Daftardar was the main aide of former Abdullah Azzam Brigades leader Majed al-Majed.

Hezbollah paid high fees for the lawyer, according to a report by NOW.

Daftardar was detained during a raid in an eastern Lebanese village near the Syrian border on January 15.

“Secret police forces were able to detain the Abdullah Azzam Brigades leader Jamal Daftardar at dawn this morning after raiding his location in a village of the western Bekaa,” a military statement said last january

His capture came a day after the Abdullah Azzam Brigades vowed to target Iran and Hezbollah following the death of its leader in Lebanon. The leader, Majid al-Majid, was arrested by the Lebanese army last December and authorities said he later died at a military hospital in Beirut from chronic illness.

Daftardar, a Lebanese citizen, who headed up Ziad al-Jarrah Battalion , a division of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades has been charged with recruiting dozens of men and transferring them to Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Afghanistan after training them to use weapons and make bombs.

The Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for a bombing on the Iranian embassy in November which killed at least 23 people and injured dozens.

In tweets at the time of the Iran embassy bombing, members of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades threatened more attacks in Lebanon unless Tehran and Hezbollah pulled their forces out of Syria.

The question on the mind of many Lebanese according to analysts , ” why is Hezbollah funding the defense of an Qaeda linked leader who is supposed to be its enemy ?”

      That’s one way to look at it. But Hezbollah have a tendency to defend someone who despise it so to turn them around to their side. I guess that’s a smart move but also risky. What will their followers think of that? how blindly can they follow an organization with hidden agendas.. If the most Shiites are not scared of HA, they will turn on them in no time. But HA played the sect rule against the Sunnis in order to get their people under their fold. But then they turn around and defend one of their deadly enemy. so far they have succeeded to created fear of the Sunnis extremists among the Shiites and the same time dependence on Hezbollah. But in Southern Beirut business are suffering and Hezbollah have no answers to help them.. How much can Hezbollah keep playing double games. Its like they help form the government, then they turn around and try to dismantle it with some rules of their own that they know it would not make a difference of how they control Lebanon one way or another..

        Hezbushaitan Iran Assad regime and Al-Qaeda are controlled by the same rafida majoos of Iran. There are plenty of reports about it. Iranian regime played this Al-Qaeda game very well but now it is already busted. More evidence like this will appear in the near future. Hezbushaitan need to help Al-Qaeda because they work together but in order to fool the world they pretend each other enemy. Just like Iran and Israel tied together but appear as they are going to attack each other at any time.

          You’re right! Its all one big conspiracy to take down the Sunni faith, one against the world. Your prophecy is playing itself out, just a matter of time before the skies split open and the anti-christ returns.

        Only a fool will fall for your theory. Hezbushaitan pays the fees because both Al-Qaeda and Hezbushaitan are coming from the same root.

    So is this when the truth comes out that al Qaeda and Hezbollah are fighting together against the FSA? The bombs may have just been lone wolves or set up by Hezbollah to scare people to keep supporting.
