Syria Slam Dunk or Wag the Dog for Obama?

Watching the plays by both sides; Syria on one side….Obama on the other. Taking a step back and actually LOOKING at evidence from both sides: Syria: One can proclaim Assad is a despot; rules by fear and intimidation. His family has had rule over Syria for decades. But why are we so upset with him now? Assad claims he DID NOT use chemical weapons against people. Assad even let U.N. inspectors in to look around. The REPORT from the U.N. has not even been released yet. Assad is just fighting the “Freedom Rebels” which contains a mix the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda. The following videos are of the “People” President Obama is supporting…… These are the “Freedom Fighter” in action: 18++** Warning very graphic videos** Push play under your own volition

Recent news of a chemical weapons attack in Syria smacks of desperation. The question comes down to who is most desperate right now, the Assad regime or the Muslim Brotherhood rebels? Consider that since June, Assad’s forces have been winning. According to a CBS News report from last month, victories for the rebels had become “increasingly rare” and that the Muslim Brotherhood-backed opposition fighters were sustaining “some of their heaviest losses” near Damascus.

This, from a Washington Timesarticle by Shaun Waterman dated May 6, 2013:

Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons, according to the BBC, but she added that more investigation was needed. {emphasis ours}

Today, while the rebels are more desperate than they were at the time of that article, evidence of rebels using chemical weapons is available; evidence Assad’s regime has used them is not.

Waterman wrote…

Rebel Free Syrian Army spokesman Louay Almokdad denied that rebels had use chemical weapons.

Back in March, we chronicled evidence of chemical weapons being used by the Syrian rebels. Unfortunately, since google terminated Theodore’s YouTube account, most of the videos in that post have been deleted and have been more than a little difficult to find.

Running concurrent with the tide that turned in Assad’s favor a few months ago was another defeat for the Muslim Brotherhood – in Egypt. That defeat has been taking place ever since Mohammed Mursi was ousted on July 3rd. So why would Assad use chemical weapons now and not months ago, when his situation was much more precarious?

As the Associated Press was reporting that the U.S. is moving ships closer to Syria in response to the alleged chemical weapons attack, Reuters reported that Assad’s army found chemical weapons in tunnels that had been used by the rebels, according to Syrian state television.

Oxford University historian Mark Almond granted Russia Today an interview and explained both why western nations are so willing to blame Assad and why rebels would have a motive to murder their own people. In response to a question about why the U.S., the U.K., and France appear so eager to blame Assad, Almond said:

“Western governments… want to say ‘Gotcha’. They have been demanding the fall of Assad for more than two-and-a-half years now and it has become increasingly frustrating that his regime has shown much more resilience than they had expected, despite the resources that they and the Gulf Kingdoms have thrown into the war on the other side.

It is also like a distraction from the embarrassment of Egypt, where we see the European and the US governments basically using weasel words to avoid any kind of condemnation of a massacre in the streets of Cairo. So there are both the specifics of Syria and the context of what is going on elsewhere in the Arab world, especially in Egypt.”

Almond gives a very interesting answer to the question about why the rebels would intentionally gas their own people:

“We do have some very radical groups who would no doubt say, as they have when they have been challenged about using suicide bombers, killing innocent people, that God will recognize his own when the dead die, that he will save for heaven the justified victims and just send to hell the wicked supporters of Assad. So it is not impossible that somebody has staged this.

Consider that a man many of the Syrian rebels show the utmost of reverence for is the Muslim Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, Yusuf Al-Qaradawi. When writing about a Muslim tactic known as Muruna, Qaradawi expressed when it is acceptable for Muslims to kill fellow Muslims:

“…killing Muslims whom the unbelievers use as shields… leaving these unbelievers is a danger to the Muslims, so it is permissible to kill these unbelievers even if Muslims are killed with them in the process.” – The Case FOR Islamophobia, p. 56

Of course, if the rebels are desperate enough, Muruna could sanction the murder of their own people if it meant bearing false witness and a blood libel that would engage external forces that want Assad removed. As things stand today, the rebels are more desperate than is the Assad regime.

Specific examples include the staged death of twelve year-old Muhammad Al-Dura by Palestinians. Whether the child was used as a prop in a Palestinian blood-libel or was actually killed, he was clearly put in danger by Palestinians who shot at him as the news cameras rolled for a false report that aired on France 2. They wanted to blame the Israelis.

Earlier this month in Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood supporters were caught behaving as victims of oppression at the hands of the military. They might have gotten away with it if nothing but still shots were taken. Unfortunately for these miscreants, video was recorded that revealed a staged, mass display of despicable behavior.

Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood rebels would never get away with launching chemical weapons and taking credit for it. They’d have to do so while blaming Assad. It’s straight out of the Nazi playbook and a violation of two major commandments – Thou shalt not murder and thou shalt not bear false witness. However, the Muslim Brotherhood, as usual, provides more evil spin. It bears false witness while committing murder in order to push an agenda.

Lying, bearing false witness, blood libel, and murder.

Yeah, that smells like the Brotherhood.

**UPDATE at 8:40am EST on August 31, 2013**

Associated Press reporter Dale Gavlak reports in MintPress news that firsthand accounts indicate that the Chemical weapons attack was the result of the rebels’ mishandling of them. According to Gavlak, the weapons came from Saudi Arabia’s Prince Bandar bin Sultan and were given to rebels who did not know what the weapons were or how to store them, nor were they trained how to use them. If these accounts are correct, the Obama administration – along with more than a handful of Republican congressmen – may be complicit in a blood libel.

=============================== **A MUST WATCH VIDEO!!!!***

Link to video **WHO is Obama listening to?*** ================================================= Obama congratulates American Muslims on same day he moves for military action against Syria

September 3, 2013

Excerpted:

The congratulating American Muslimsvideo, aired Saturday at the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)annual convention, highlighting “the myriad of ways the American Muslim community, and specifically ISNA leadership, has served as an effective partner in promoting inter-religious initiatives in the U.S. and religious freedom for minorities around the world.” (PRNewswire-USNewswire, Aug. 31, 2013).

That is, of course, unless you happen to be a Christian in Syria, Egypt, Nigeria, Sudan, Pakistan, Iraq, Bangladesh, Somalia, Tanzania, Libya, Cameroon, the Netherlands, Kenya, Turkey, Algeria, Norway, Lebanon, Indonesia, the Philippines, Kosovo, South Africa, and even in the U.S., where on March 24, 2013, in Ashtabula, Ohio, a Muslim convert walked into a church service with a Koran and gunned down his Christian father while praising Allah. (TheReligionofPeace)

In heaping praise on the ISNA leadership, for the “myriad ways it has served as an effective partner in promoting inter-religious initiatives in the U.S. and religious freedom for minorities around the world”, Obama was following in the footsteps of his mentor Valerie Jarrett, who was the keynote speaker at the inaugural session of the 46th AnnualConvention of the ISNA, in 2009. Citing Obama’s Cairo speech, Ms. Jarrett serves as a Senior Advisor and Assistant to Obama for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, had some interesting things to say about Obama and Muslim society.

Is it any wonder why Obama is trying to throw America in with al Qaeda in Syria in an attack on John Kerry’s dinner companion Bashar al-Assad?

“As this Convention demonstrates,” Jarrett told the gathering, “gone are the days of describing distinct sets of ‘Muslim issues’ and American issues.‘ Your work here is crucial in confronting the challenges that all Americans are facing. And you help advance the new beginning between the United State and Muslim communities around the world that the President called for in Cairo.” (Italics, CFP’s).

How are Iatter day ISNA conventions able to attract speakers like the President of theUnited States and his most influential advisor?

The possibilities are there because of world-renowned Evangelical leaders and top Catholic prelates like Pastor Rick Warren, ISNA guest speaker in 2009 and the Most Rev. Denis Madden, Chair, Committee on Ecumenical and Inter-religious Affairs, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Saturday’s ISNA keynote speaker.

These are religious leaders who are putting their flocks at risk by ignoring the dangers of radical Islam, which even as Madden spoke were killing Coptic Christians in Egypt, and who have slaughtered little children with sarin gas in Syria.

Now, Obama is denying ever stating the "red line"  it is now the world's red line.

I am so sick and tired of this over=the=top charlatan who was given too much power and  he has too little brains or experience for the job!

The Neo Cons in the Republican party  will give Obama political cover.  Every time we get "bipartisan" support, it spells bad news for the American people.  This time is no different.
