Syria: Public Execution Victims Identified as Civilians

Two weeks ago, Syria Report posted an article detailing the public execution of three men in Ar-Raqqah city. On March 4, 2013 the city fell in the hands of three Jihadist organisations; the infamous Jabhat al-Nusra, Harakat Ahrar as-Sham and the brigade of Huthaya bin al-Yaman.

In the following video, three men can be seen kneeling, bound and blindfolded as armed and masked men guard them. Noticeable is the black standard of the Islamic State of Iraq. A speech is then read out to the gathered crowd, stating the executions are in retaliation for the massacres of Sunnis and singles out Alawites in particular. Sectarian rhetoric such as this appears to be growing in regularity in recent weeks.

Warning: Video is Graphic

NATO Proxies Using WMD’s in Syria – Dozens Dead

March 19, 2013 (LD) UPDATED – After a 10 year war/occupation in Iraq, the death of over a million people including thousands of US soldiers, all based on patently false claims of the nation possessing “weapons of mass destruction,” (WMDs), it is outrageous hypocrisy to see the West arming, funding, and politically backing terrorists in Syria who in fact both possess, and are now using such weapons against the Syrian people.

At least 25 are reported dead after a chemical weapons attack targeting Syrian soldiers was carried out by NATO-backed terrorists in the northern city of Aleppo. While NATO-backed terrorists claim they lack the “expertise” to even use chemical weapons, it was reported by CNN in their December 2012 article, “Sources: U.S. helping underwrite Syrian rebel training on securing chemical weapons,” that:

The United States and some European allies are using defense contractors to train Syrian rebels on how to secure chemical weapons stockpiles in Syria, a senior U.S. official and several senior diplomats told CNN Sunday.

And while some are attempting to suggest the use of chemical weapons by either side indicates “unsecured stockpiles” and a “security risk,” the weapons could have just as likely come from Libya. Aleppo is located near the Syrian-Turkish border. Had Libya’s looted stockpiles of chemical weapons been shipped to Syria, they would have passed through Turkey along with weapons sent from Libya by the US and thousands of Libyan terrorists who are admittedly operating inside Syria, and would most likely be used to target cities like Aleppo.

Worse yet, any chemical weapons imported into the country would implicate NATO either directly or through gross negligence, as the weapons would have passed through NATO-member Turkey, past US CIA agents admittedly operating along the border and along side Western-backed terrorists inside Syria.

Libya’s WMD’s are in Terrorist Hands  Continue reading

President Al-Assad’s Interview with The Sunday Times full transcription

Sunday Times: Mr. President your recent offer of political dialogue was qualified with a firm rejection of the very groups you would have to pacify to stop the violence: the armed rebels and the Syrian National Coalition, the main opposition alliance.

So in effect you are only extending an olive branch to the loyal opposition, mostly internal, that renounce the armed struggle, and who effectively recognizes the legitimacy of your leadership, who are you willing to talk to, really?

President Assad: First of all, let me correct some of the misconceptions that have been circulating and that are found in your question in order to make my answer accurate.

Sunday Times: Okay.

President Assad: Firstly, when I announced the plan, I said that it was for those who interested in dialogue, because you cannot make a plan that is based on dialogue with somebody who does not believe in dialogue. So, I was very clear regarding this.

Secondly, this open dialogue should not be between exclusive groups but between all Syrians of every level. The dialogue is about the future of Syria. We are twenty three million Syrians and all of us have the right to participate in shaping the country’s future. Some may look at it as a dialogue between the government and certain groups in the opposition – whether inside or outside, external or internal -actually this is a very shallow way of looking at the dialogue. It is much more comprehensive. It is about every Syrian and about every aspect of Syrian life. Syria’s future cannot be determined simply by who leads it but by the ambitions and aspirations of all its people.

The other aspect of the dialogue is that it opens the door for militants to surrender their weapons and we have granted many amnesties to facilitate this. This is the only way to make a dialogue with those groups. This has already started, even before the plan, and some have surrendered their weapons and they live now their normal life. But this plan makes the whole process more methodical, announced and clear.

If you want to talk about the opposition, there is another misconception in the West. They put all the entities even if they are not homogeneous in one basket – as if everything against the government is opposition. We have to be clear about this. We have opposition that are political entities and we have armed terrorists. We can engage in dialogue with the opposition but we cannot engage in dialogue with terrorists; we fight terrorism. Another phrase that is often mentioned is the ‘internal opposition inside Syria’ or ‘internal opposition as loyal to the government.’ Opposition groups should be loyal and patriotic to Syria – internal and external opposition is not about the geographic position; it is about their roots, resources and representation. Have these roots been planted in Syria and represent Syrian people and Syrian interests or the interests of foreign government? So, this is how we look at the dialogue, this is how we started and how we are going to continue. Continue reading

German Journalist: West-led Armed Opposition in Syria will Fail

 

TEHRAN (FNA)- German journalist and magazine editor Manuel Ochsenreiter believes that the Western powers along with the regional countries are backing and financing terrorists and insurgents in Syria, because each of them have certain interests linked to the disintegration of the Syrian government and the removal from power of President Bashar Assad.

He also says that these countries are supporting such dangerous groups as Al-Qaeda to destabilize Syria and fight the Syrian army at the expense of the lives of innocent Syrian citizens whose only crime is supporting their government.

“These groups like Al-Qaeda, but also other armed militias that have infiltrated Syria during the course of the past year now fight the proxy war of the big powers. For Ankara, Riyadh, Washington or Doha it is much more convenient and also cheaper to use (or abuse) those insurgents instead of having a conventional war against Damascus. You have always a supply of men and arms. You just have to pay and to give support by means of intelligence, logistics and training,” said Ochsenreiter in an interview with Fars News Agency.

Manuel Ochsenreiter is the chief editor of the German monthly magazine ZUERST and contributes to other journals and magazines in Germany, as well. He spent a few weeks in Syria last year and dispatched special reports of the Battle of Damascus and other developments in the war-hit country.  Continue reading

L’Etat syrien a-t-il perdu du terrain face aux terroristes? // Is Syrian state losing ground ?

FRENCH:

Le célèbre analyste libanais, Qhalib Qandil a évoqué le sujet au micro du journaliste de Farsnews.

“l’Etat syrien s’est montrée invincible grâce à une armée particulièrement performante. les rumeurs concernant l’imminence d’une guerre contre la Syrie ne vise en réalité que de remonter le morale aux miliciens défaits . la question de l’arme chimique fait elle aussi partie de la même logique belliciste qui conduit depuis 10 ans le clan occidental dans ses prises de position face à l’Iran.” L’axe de la résistance qui soutien Assad n’a rien perdu de sa conviction qui consiste à voir en Syrie une bataille qui configure l’avenir de la région. l’Iran le Hezbollah continueront à appuyer Damas tout comme la Chine et la Russie qui sont déterminés à ne pas perdre davantage du terrain face au camp occidental” ” Affaiblis par des années de guerres d’irectes , les Etats Unis en sont au point de mener leur guerre indirectement . et c’est ce qui se passe actuellement en Syrie . si l’occident avait pu  attaquer l’Etat syrien, il l’aurait fait depuis longtemps”. Interrogé sur l’état dans lequel se trouve aujourd’hui le peuple syrien Qandil souligne : ” je me déplace régulièrement en Syrie et dans diverses régions. les Syriens se demandent qui sont ces miliciens qui se trouvent dans leur pays? qui sont ces combattants tchéchènes qui égorgent et tuent et qui ne parlent même pas un seul mot d’arabe et comment ces gens là pourraient leur apporter la démocratie?!!! la réalité est que les Syriens ont pris conscience que cette opposition extérieur à Assad est financée par le Qatar et l’Arabie saoudite et que ceux des syriens qui ont liés aux Frères musulmans n’en valent pas mieux” ” et d’ailleurs pourquoi cette opposition continue-t-elle a rejeter le dialogue avec l’Etat syrien? ‘….” avec une opinion publique bien éclairée, l’armée syrienne saura reconquérir d’ici quelques semaines les localités perdues et mettre au pas les terroristes. le dialogue entre les forces nationales débutera et les élections auront lieu et la Syrie sortira la tête haute de cette epreuve”.

Famous Lebanese analyst, Qhalib Qandil discussed the subject of micro Farsnews journalist.
“Syrian State proved invincible army with a particularly efficient. Rumors of an imminent war against Syria is made to raise the moral of militiamen in total defeat. Issue of chemical weapons is also part of the same logic that leads hawkish clan for 10 years in western his stance against Iran. ” The axis of the resistance supporting Assad has lost none of his belief that Syria is seeing a battle that sets the future of the region. Iran will continue to support Hezbollah Damascus as China and Russia who are determined not to lose further ground against the Western camp “” Weakened by years of wars irectes, the United States are at the point of conduct their war indirectly. and this is what is happening in Syria. if the West had been attacking the Syrian state, he would have done a long time “. Asked about the state is now the Syrian people Qandil said:” I regularly travels in Syria and in various regions . the Syrians who are these militiamen who are in their country? Chechen fighters are those who slaughter and kill and do not even speak a word of Arabic and how these people could bring democracy?! the reality is that the Syrians are aware that outside opposition to Assad is funded by Qatar and Saudi Arabia and the Syrian people who have linked to the Muslim Brotherhood are not worth more “” and why this continued opposition she has rejected dialogue with the Syrian government? ‘…. “With a public well lit, the Syrian army will recover within a few weeks and lost places rein in terrorists. Dialogue between national forces and begin the election will be released and Syria the head-this test. ”

Syrie : les terroristes en échec et mat // Syria: terrorists checkmate

FRENCH:

Pour l’analyste syrien, Mahmoud Ahmad, les attentats terroristes commis par les miliciens est le signe de leur impuissance : “Aussitôt après la reprise d’une localité, par l’armée loyaliste, les terroristes se lancent dans des attentats et commettent des attaques sporadiques.

Cette manière de réagir n’est que le signe de leur impuissance, et, par ailleurs, un message lancé à l’adresse de Damas, par le Qatar et l’Arabie saoudite, qui soutiennent ces terroristes”. Cet analyste souligne la présence des Qaïdistes, dans les rangs des terroristes, pour se dire scandalisé, par ” le soutien occidental apporté à ces élements”.

ENGLISH:

For Syrian analyst Mahmoud Ahmad, the terrorist attacks by the militia is a sign of their impotence: “Immediately after liberation of a locality by the loyalist army,the  terrorists engage in terrorism and carry out sporadic attacks.
This how to respond is the sign of their impotence, and, moreover, a message sent to the address of Damascus, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, who support these terrorists. “This analyst noted the presence of Qaïdistes in the ranks of terrorists, say outraged by “Western support given to these elements.”
