    Default UN Designates “Free Syrian Army” Affiliates as Al Qaeda

    UN Designates “Free Syrian Army” Affiliates as Al Qaeda

    Tony Cartalucci
    Aug 12, 2012

    The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) currently arming, funding, and commanding entire brigades of the so-called “Free Syrian Army” (FSA), is designated an Al Qaeda affiliate by the United Nations pursuant to resolutions 1267 (1999) and 1989 (2011), in addition to being listed by both the US State Department and the UK Home Office (page 5, .pdf) as a foreign terrorist organization and a proscribed terrorist organization respectively.




    Image: From UN.org – LIFG, who is now leading, arming, and funding (via Qatari, Saudi, Turkish, US, and British cash) entire brigades of the so-called “Free Syrian Army,” is clearly listed as an integral part of Al Qaeda, with the UN noting several prominent LIFG terrorists occupying the highest echelons of Al Qaeda’s command structure. These resolutions reflects other reports previously covered, including the US Army West Point Combating Terrorism Center report, “”Al-Qa’ida’s Foreign Fighters in Iraq” (summary here).

    ….

    This means that the United States, the UK, NATO, and the Gulf State despots of Saudi Arabia and Qatar are knowingly and willfully funding, arming, and politically backing designated affiliates of Al Qaeda contrary not only to US and British anti-terror legislation, but contrary to numerous UN resolutions as well. Western and Gulf State support of the FSA constitutes state sponsorship of terrorism.




    Image: In Libya – starting with the blue flak-jacketed Paul Conroy of the British press, standing to his left with a rifle slung across his chest is LIFG terrorist Mahdi al-Harati, now leading FSA brigades in Syria, to his left wearing green camouflage fatigues is Abdul Hakim Belhaj, LIFG commander who had visited the Turkish-Syrian border pledging weapons, cash, and fighters to FSA militants in November 2011. That same month, some 600 LIFG terrorists from Libya would enter Syria and begin militant operations. Al Qaeda was a creation of Western geopolitical interests, and to this day continues to serve these interests. The “War on Terror” is a fraud.

    ….

    Should the UN fail to enforce its own resolutions, while playing host to further sanctions and considerations for military intervention against the Syrian government who is in fact resisting an international terrorist organization, it will have entirely resigned its legitimacy and authority as nothing more than a tool of Western corporate-financier interests. It will also highlight the necessity to expediently remove and replace it – ideally with a system that represents a multipolar balance of global power maintained by sovereign nation-states rather than untenable supranational governance.


    The “Free Syrian Army”is Al Qaeda, led, armed, funded by Western-backed LIFG terrorists.


    As previously reported (and here), both British and American journalists have clearly identified and documented the presence of foreign fighters with militant extremist ties pouring over the Turkish-Syrian border, most recently in an attempt to overrun the northern Syrian city of Aleppo. CNN, whose Ivan Watson accompanied FSA terrorists over the Turkish-Syrian border and into Aleppo revealed that indeed foreign fighters were amongst the militants. It was admitted that:


    Meanwhile, residents of the village where the Syrian Falcons were headquartered said there were fighters of several North African nationalities also serving with the brigade’s ranks.


    A volunteer Libyan fighter has also told CNN he intends to travel from Turkey to Syria within days to add a “platoon” of Libyan fighters to armed movement.

    CNN also added:


    On Wednesday, CNN’s crew met a Libyan fighter who had crossed into Syria from Turkey with four other Libyans. The fighter wore full camouflage and was carrying a Kalashnikov rifle. He said more Libyan fighters were on the way.

    The foreign fighters, some of them are clearly drawn because they see this as … a jihad. So this is a magnet for jihadists who see this as a fight for Sunni Muslims.




    Image: From BBC’s Ian Pannell who also accompanied terrorists across the Turkish-Syrian borderand into Aleppo, he reported young men “suspected” of being “Shabiha” being rounded up as the FSA “seeks revenge.” BBC fails categorically to explain how NATO-backed terrorists can “liberate” a city that is admittedly pro-government – but it appears it will be done through terrorism, brutality, mass murder, and intimidation.

    ….

    Foreign Policy magazine in an article titled, “The Syrian Rebels’ Libyan Weapon,” has gone as far as writing a two page profile on Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) commander Mahdi al-Harati and his role in leading the so-called “Free Syrian Army.” Also recently, the Council on Foreign Relations, a premier Fortune 500-funded US think-tank, wrote in their article, “Al-Qaeda’s Specter in Syria,” that:


    “The Syrian rebels would be immeasurably weaker today without al-Qaeda in their ranks. By and large, Free Syrian Army (FSA) battalions are tired, divided, chaotic, and ineffective. Feeling abandoned by the West, rebel forces are increasingly demoralized as they square off with the Assad regime’s superior weaponry and professional army. Al-Qaeda fighters, however, may help improve morale. The influx of jihadis brings discipline, religious fervor, battle experience from Iraq, funding from Sunni sympathizers in the Gulf, and most importantly, deadly results. In short, the FSA needs al-Qaeda now.”

    Clearly then, US, British, NATO, and Gulf State aid is being sent to the FSA whose ranks are admittedly filled by Al Qaeda.

    Also, to be clear, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) is in fact an affiliate of Al Qaeda with its commanders having occupied the highest echelons of Al Qaeda’s command structure and having participated in every combat engagement Al Qaeda has conducted since its inception via US-Saudi cash and arms in the mountains of Afghanistan in the 1980′s. This was documented meticulously in the US Army’s West Point Combating Terrorism Center report, “Al-Qa’ida’s Foreign Fighters in Iraq.”

    LIFG is also listed by both the US State Department and the UK Home Office (page 5, .pdf) as a foreign terrorist organization and a proscribed terrorist organization respectively.

    Foreign Policy’s admission of al-Harati’s role in organizing and leading the FSA in Syria, and the inclusion of Libyan terrorists in his brigade are by no means the only role LIFG is playing in the Syrian violence. LIFG commander Abdul Hakim Belhaj had visited the Turkish-Syrian border in late 2011 pledging Libyan arms, cash, and fighters to the FSA – with the nation of Libya itself having already become a NATO-created terrorist safe-haven.

    It is clear that LIFG, and by implication Al Qaeda, is playing a significant role in the violence in Syria, not only undermining the narrative of the unrest being an “indigenous” “pro-democracy uprising,” but also implicating foreign nations who are funding and arming militants as state sponsors of terrorism.

    Included amongst these state sponsors of international terrorism are Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the Hariri faction in northern Lebanon, as well as the NATO-installed government of Libya. This also includes both the United States, who is admittedly providing cash and equipment for the FSA as well as coordinating efforts to arm militants, and now the UK once again with their latest announcement.

    A similar scenario unfolded in Libya, where LIFG terrorists were likewise carrying out a campaign of nationwide genocide with NATO providing air support. Similarly, by funding, arming, and coordinating acts of violence with LIFG fighters, NATO, and in particular, France, England, and the United States, were guilty of violating both their own respective anti-terrorism legislation, as well as international provisions against terrorism.

    Mehdi al-Harati’s brigade, known as Liwa al-Umma (Banner of the Nation), is separate to the FSA and its units are scattered throughout the country.

    According to Harati, who first came to Syria some 10 months ago for what he says was initially humanitarian work, the brigade emerged after Syrians approached him due to his experience as commander of the Tripoli Brigade in Libya last year. The Tripoli Brigade was one of the first rebel units into the Libyan capital last August.

    Liwa al-Umma is made up of more than 6,000 men, 90 per cent of whom are Syrian. The rest are mostly Libyans and other Arabs, including several who live in Ireland.

    The Syrian opposition is a lot of different groups with one common enemy- Assad.
    I am Zippy and I approve of this message. But you don't have to.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    I don't know why this civil war is some big mystery to people. I also don't see why people would think an overthrow is a plus for the so-called globalists. If the globalists main agenda is to protect Israel, and Israeli interests, the Arab spring enhanced Islamic fundamentalism in the region 10 fold so it would be a massive FAIL in that department.

    Default A Clean Break

    "Securing the Northern Border"
    "Syria challenges Israel on Lebanese soil. An effective approach, and one with which American can sympathize, would be if Israel seized the strategic initiative along its northern borders by engaging Hizballah, Syria, and Iran, as the principal agents of aggression in Lebanon, including by: ---striking Syria’s drug-money and counterfeiting infrastructure in Lebanon, all of which focuses on Razi Qanan. ---paralleling Syria’s behavior by establishing the precedent that Syrian territory is not immune to attacks emanating from Lebanon by Israeli proxy forces.... "[1]
    "Israel also can take this opportunity to remind the world of the nature of the Syrian regime. Syria repeatedly breaks its word. It violated numerous agreements with the Turks, and has betrayed the United States by continuing to occupy Lebanon in violation of the Taef agreement in 1989. Instead, Syria staged a sham election, installed a quisling regime, and forced Lebanon to sign a "Brotherhood Agreement" in 1991, that terminated Lebanese sovereignty. And Syria has begun colonizing Lebanon with hundreds of thousands of Syrians, while killing tens of thousands of its own citizens at a time, as it did in only three days in 1983 in Hama....Given the nature of the regime in Damascus, it is both natural and moral that Israel abandon the slogan comprehensive peace and move to contain Syria, drawing attention to its weapons of mass destruction programs, and rejecting land for peace deals on the Golan Heights."[1]

    The goal is to eliminate the few remaining secular governments in the Middle East. Iraq, Libya, Syria...noticing a pattern?

    NO, I'm not!

    Whose goal? Like I said it wouldn't make sense, and between Egypt, Libya, and Syria/Iraq, they all had very different political philosophies. Not only that, but there were massive protests in Bahrain, and the media like ALJ really really pushed for that revolution, but Saudi helped the Bahrain government quell them, Jordan has massive protests as well, even Saudi Arabia had protests, so to say this only happened in secular regions is not true... did elite also want the Shia Bahrainis to overthrow their leaders? Or was that a legitimate revolution? Did they want the Jordanians to overthrow King Abdullah II?

    Take a look at the countries where revolution was successful, the people were oppressed, people were tortured by these governments, then when people fight back everyone blames the opposition as terrorists? Why to satisfy their world view?

    I'm not here to say that US intelligence isn't going to try their best to benefit from what's going on, but to sit and call people terrorists and say that this is only happening because the rothschilds instigated this and it's all part of a massive plan, that's ridiculous. Matter of fact, American/Israeli interests ARE WORSE OFF now, the MB are incharge of Egypt, and the Salafist bloc is large and growing there, what bigger threat to Israel is that? Mubarak, Gaddafi, Bashar, they're all very good for Israeli interests.

    This whole article is basically saying: Obscure Libyan group has ties to Al Qaeda -> Couple leaders from said group many years later fight Gaddafi -> They then go help the Syrian opposition [NOT THE FSA] -> The US is supportive of the FSA -> THE UNITED STATES IS FUNDING AL QAEDA TO COMMIT TERRORISM IN SYRIA!

    The globalist agenda is to sow chaos so that it can bring order. The "Arab Spring" and the enhanced Islamic fundamentalism fits hand in glove with the globalist agenda. If you spent more time trying to understand the agenda rather than ridiculing those who have, you might learn something. So far all you've figured out is that Yasser Arafat might have been poisoned. It's not "conspiracy theory" that Al Qaeda is involved in the U.S. backed attack on Assad. That doesn't make Assad a good person by any stretch. Saddam wasn't a good person either. But he did protect religious minorities such as Chaldean Christians. Many of them fled to Syria after his fall. The globalists must really hate middle eastern Christians for some reason.

    It's got nothing to do with "satisfying a world view". I think you are denying clear facts in order to satisfy your own world view. It's not the opposition I have a problem with as it is the U.S. government for funding terrorists. Some of the people fighting against Americans in Afghanistan are evil, and some are just justifiably angry. The same is true for Syria. The same was true for Libya. Please go of your emotional defense of "all things Arab spring" and think this through. In all of these situations, our screwed up government for whatever reason picks the worst miscreants it can find to fund. That happened in Afghanistan during the Soviet era. It happened in Bosnia during the Clinton years. It's happening again now. That there are real terrorists leading the fight against Assad in no way means that the people of Syria don't have legitimate beef against Assad.

    I'm not here to say that US intelligence isn't going to try their best to benefit from what's going on, but to sit and call people terrorists and say that this is only happening because the rothschilds instigated this and it's all part of a massive plan, that's ridiculous. Matter of fact, American/Israeli interests ARE WORSE OFF now, the MB are incharge of Egypt, and the Salafist bloc is large and growing there, what bigger threat to Israel is that? Mubarak, Gaddafi, Bashar, they're all very good for Israeli interests.
    To ignore the facts that are right in front of your face because of your own emotionalism is what is ridiculous. It wasn't some "conspiracy theory" site that linked the Syrian opposition to the Al Qaeda. It was the U.N.!

    Why is this so hard for you to understand? Obama is supposedly against guns, yet his administration buys guns and sells them to Mexican drug lords, supposedly to "track" the flow of guns, only to lose track of the guns.



    The Obama administration continues to fight the "war on drugs", yet it has troops in Afghanistan protecting the opium poppy crop.



    So with that in mind, why does it at all "blow your mind" that the U.S. would fund terrorism in Syria to overthrow Assad? That's just part of a day's work.
