A number of US drone strikes within few days have killed “dozens of suspected militants” of Al Qaeda in Yemen. This is considered as success in the US and is reported as good news in western press:
This is because in Yemen (just as in Afghanistan or Pakistan) Al Qaeda fighters or those with almost identical attitude and methods are considered terrorists. Not however in Syria, where their existence and relevance is either denied or belittled. Thus, it is tolerated by the US, UK, France, Turkey and implicitly also by Israel that the Syrian Nusra Front is non other than the local branch of Al Qaeda and that most supposedly “moderate” rebel groups closely and regularly cooperate with the Nusra.
“Any action that serves sectarian sedition serves takfiri goals,” Nasrallah said. “Takfiris want us to target our Sunni brothers, but this won’t happen.”
Interviewer: Mr President going back to your definition of jihad in its true meaning, we find unfortunately that the more prevalent form is based on fighting and killing. What can be done about this?
President Assad: The solution is to seek guidance from the Quran where the clear words of God resonate. Islam is a religion of mercy and forgiveness; the word “mercy” is cited over 70 times in the Quran. Islam came to promote human values, enshrine mercy and love, and prevent killing…The Quran and the Hadith are both clear in promoting love, forgiveness, justice and humanity. Those who claim to emulate the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) should remember his behaviour as a human being before and after he became a prophet, they will find that his message was primarily based on human morals and principals.
I would like to pose a question to you and your readers: do these Wahabis and Takfiris and their acts resemble in any shape or form our great Prophet’s conduct throughout his life, either before or after he became a prophet? …the Prophet did not only convey the words of God, he embodied their meaning and practiced what he preached. If we go back to the Quran, the Hadith and the life and conduct of the Prophet, we will see the complete opposite of what these terrorists are practicing.
Saudi Wahhabi Sheikh Calls on Iraq’s Jihadists to Kill Shiites
“Saad al-Durihim, a Saudi Wahhabi sheikh, posted a tweet on Twitter in which he said that jihadist fighters in Iraq should adopt a “heavy-handed” approach and kill any Shiites they can get their hands on, including children and women.”
“I want to apologise to Syrian mothers,” wailed Latifa from Tunisia. “I didn’t know my son was coming here. We want to tell you our sons were brainwashed.”
“More than 42 countries are now sending fighters to cause bloodshed in Syria,” declared Syrian-American industrialist Khaled Mahjoub, who is on a mission to take on Islamists he calls “Salafi Wahabis powered by petrodollars”.
Jihadists from European countries – everywhere from Britain to Sweden – can be seen in videos uploaded to the internet, along with fighters from areas long seen as breeding grounds for militancy, including the tribal areas of Pakistan and Chechnya.
“We don’t like all the Shiites, because all of them are killing us,” he insists. “They say bad things about our Prophet. When I kill a man in the Syrian Army, I am sad. But I enjoy killing Shiites or Alawites.”
This is exactly why Wahhabism/Salafism is a Nazi-like ideology and has nothing to do with “original, pure Islam”. The core of this fascist mindset is “self-elevation” by practicing takfirism which means to declare other muslims “infidels”
By the way, it is of course nonsense that Shiites say bad things about the prophet.
“A suicide bomber in Iraq has rammed a car packed with explosives into a bus, killing at least 10 Iranian Shia pilgrims…Shia pilgrims have frequently been targeted by Sunni militants in Iraq.”
The sick (takfiri) ideology behind these inexcusable crimes comes from Saudi Arabia and God will hold the Wahhabis accountable for this.
