Kurds and Christians in Syria should fear the FSA, Islamists, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia

Kurds and Christians in Syria should fear the FSA, Islamists, Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia

Murad Makhmudov and Lee Jay Walker

Modern Tokyo Times

In recent days the intensity of mistrust between the Kurds and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) is clearly boiling over after the FSA entered Kurdish areas. The FSA Islamists are being openly supported by Turkey, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. France is probably the most dangerous equation within the triangle of America, the United Kingdom and ruling elites in Paris. Therefore, the Kurds have every right to fear the brutal FSA and the various different Islamist terrorist organizations in Syria.

After all, the Kurds have been struggling for decades in Turkey and vast numbers have been killed. At no time did Saudi Arabia and Qatar concern themselves about this. More importantly, the Kurds are much more secular and given the Islamist nature of the FSA and many different Islamist organizations; then clearly the Kurds will become a future “lamb to be slaughtered” under the “watch” of Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Christians also have much to fear from the FSA terrorists who have sacked countless number of Christian churches and killed Christians. This isn’t surprising, after all in Saudi Arabia not one single Christian church is allowed and Muslim apostates to Christianity face being beheaded. Likewise, many videos have been circulated by the FSA and various Islamist terrorist organizations whereby they are beheading Alawites, Shia Muslims and Sunni Muslims who are loyal to the government of Syria.

Given the nature of Saudi Arabia and that beheading is enshrined in the legal system of this nation, then this is another clear link to the barbarity of the FSA and Islamist terrorist networks. In the last 24 hours it is known that a Christian Armenian church was ransacked by the FSA Islamists. This isn’t anything new because in many Christian strongholds they have been forced to flee persecution and murder at the hands of the FSA and Islamist terrorist organizations.

Bishop Antoine Audo commented that “In the city of Homs, home to what was the country’s second-largest Christian community, all but a few of the faithful were forced to leave after a wave of persecution — all the churches desecrated.”

The Kurds will face the same Christian fate if the FSA and Islamists grow in strength because these movements care nothing about the mosaic of Syria. On the contrary, Islamists which are being funded by Qatar and Saudi Arabia desire a Sharia Islamic state based on the draconian Salafi branch of Islam. Therefore, not only are Christians and Kurds threatened by this new dynamic within Syria – but mainstream Sunni Islam will also face the wrath of Salafists – if they grow in power. Likewise, for Alawites, the Shia and Druze, then they also must understand that Saudi Arabia isn’t funding the FSA and Islamist groups for democracy, religious liberty and female emancipation.

After all, it is the government of Syria which supports religious freedom and female emancipation. Indeed, the secular nature of Syria is an affront to Saudi Arabia and Qatar. In the past, this also would apply to Turkey but not under the Erdogan government which desires to scratch away at secularism within the body politic of Turkey. Therefore, during the last week you have not only witnessed Kurdish demonstrations in Turkey but also a mass demonstration by secularists in this nation because they don’t trust the Erdogan government.

In Aleppo the FSA and Kurds have been fighting after the FSA became interested in showing their power mechanisms alongside appeasing the government of Erdogan which is playing a very dangerous game. Sadly, for Syria, this outside meddling by Turkey which is the main conduit for international terrorists, covert operatives and military arms; then the result is tragic. This applies to vast numbers of Syrians being killed because of the collective policies of Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. France is also involved in many areas while America and the United Kingdom are useful allies from a distance even if differences exist about the methodology.

During the recent fighting between the Kurds and FSA it is known that over 20 people were killed and it is also reported that over one hundred people have been taken by opposing forces. The FSA admits that at least 16 individuals from this mercenary and terrorist organization were killed. However, it is clear that the FSA is only interested in a truce in the short-term until they are powerful enough to crush the Kurdish Democratic Union Party. Likewise, the various Islamist organizations are not interested in democracy and secularism. Therefore, for Christians, Kurds and the Syria people collectively, it is apparent that under the FSA and various Islamist organizations that this country will enter a new period of oppression, wanton destruction and whereby religious liberty and female emancipation will be crushed.

The recent clash emerged after Kurds from all political persuasions demanded that the FSA leave their area. This isn’t surprising given the cleansing of Christians in many places by the FSA. When the FSA witnessed this then it is reported that they fired on innocent Kurds. Luckily, the Kurds, unlike Christian areas under FSA control, can’t be pushed around by the FSA and terrorized. Yet, the Kurds should know that if the FSA isn’t crushed in Kurdish areas and the military arms keep on flowing to the FSA; then one day this balance will tip against the Kurdish community. Once this happens, then Kurds will share the fate of Christians in places like Homs.

Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are not interested in religious liberty, the future of Kurds within Syria and secularism. The dynamics within Turkey could change because many Turkish nationals don’t support the foreign policy objectives of Erdogan. However, for Saudi Arabia and Qatar then their goal will not change under the current monarchy based politics of both nations.

Christians and Kurds have much to fear given the ongoing persecution under the FSA and various Islamist terrorist factions in parts of Syria. Likewise, the Alawites, Shia and Druze know full well that Saudi Arabia isn’t interested in religious pluralism. Similarly, the Alevi suffer institutional discrimination in Turkey. Therefore, the dark forces being unleashed by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar threatens the mosaic of Syria alongside destroying the independence of Syria which will please America, France and the United Kingdom.

France and Turkey want a terrorist free zone to destroy the independence of Syria

France and Turkey want a terrorist free zone to destroy the independence of Syria

Jibril Khoury and Lee Jay Walker

Modern Tokyo Times

 

France and Turkey are in favor of creating “terrorist free zones” in order to create “areas of cancer” to destroy the independence of Syria. It is abundantly clear that leaders in Paris and Ankara care little about the reality that it is outside intervention which is responsible for the carnage against an independent state. After all, France and Turkey are two of the nations which are creating the carnage alongside America, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Kingdom.

President Francois Hollande of France stated that “We are working … [on] the initiative of buffer zones proposed by Turkey…We are doing so in co-ordination with our closest partners.” These buffer zones will also be “terrorist free zones” in order to enable the mercenary forces of the FSA to plan fresh religious cleansing attacks against Christians, Shia Muslims, Alawites and against Sunni Muslim areas which are loyal to the government of Syria.

It matters not to Hollande that the FSA have attacked religious minorities, targeted journalists openly, been responsible for countless numbers of terrorist attacks and are on video tapes whereby they behead and hang people deemed to be loyal to the government of Syria. Indeed, the more brutal the attacks by the FSA the more they appear to be rewarded by forces in Ankara and Paris who desire to hide behind America and NATO.

This behavior is being replicated by the international community which is allowing Saudi Arabia and Qatar to fund terrorism, sectarianism and sedition against sovereign Syria. The crisis in Bahrain is being contained because nations like Iran, the Russian Federation and China are not supporting international terrorism, sedition and sectarianism. However, for Syria it is clear that America, France, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, the United Kingdom and Qatar are supporting the destabilization of Syria by funding and training terrorists and mercenaries.

Political leaders in Washington, London and Paris are also using the “chemical weapons issue” in order to justify international intervention. This reality is just like the “false flag” against secular Iraq whereby weapons of mass destruction were used to justify the invasion of this nation. Therefore, the three nuclear powers and the sellers of vast quantities of military hardware in the world are highlighting not only their complete hypocrisy – but they are also showing the world that they care nothing about alternative viewpoints in their continuing quest of invading sovereign nations which don’t fall into line.

Turkey is crying wolf about the refugee crisis which is clearly ridiculous because this nation is supporting the FSA which is responsible for entering major cities in Syria. Also, Syria took in over one million refugees from Iraq who fled this nation when the same Sunni Islamist terrorist networks began sectarianism and spreading terrorism throughout this country. Today, the same Islamist networks in Iraq are on the same side against secular Syria.

If individuals watch the many videos which highlight the brutal reality of the FSA and various Islamic terrorist organizations; then clearly it is difficult to fathom why this brutal reality is being supported openly. It is also difficult to understand the role of many leading media agencies which use manipulative language and often report misinformation even when evidence points in the other direction, or when not enough evidence can be found to justify false reporting. Therefore, many media agencies have flagrantly incited hatred and bowed down to powerful policy makers in Washington, London and Paris.

In Aleppo it is clear that the FSA not only invaded and committed many massacres but equally important it is obvious that the vast majority of citizens in this powerful city are against them. This doesn’t suit the sectarian rhetoric directed towards the government of Syria by nations which are supporting sectarianism because the Sunni Muslim majority did not openly demonstrate for the FSA. This is abundantly obvious because no major agency could show mass demonstrations in support of the FSA. However, when the Syrian armed forces began to control many areas of Aleppo then you had mass demonstrations in support of the government of Syria.

Therefore, why are nations like America, the United Kingdom, France and Turkey supporting the side of terrorism, sectarianism, killers of religious minorities and backing the FSA and Islamist groups which are beheading and hanging people? Not only this, nations like France and Turkey are now in the vanguard of trying to create “terrorist free zones” in Syria in order to crush the secular government of this nation. Nobody expects morality from Saudi Arabia which supports killing apostates and enslaves women; however, why are so-called “democratic nations” supporting the feudal monarchies of Qatar and Saudi Arabia in their sectarian plots?

Syria and Russia: Putin remains firm and highlights hypocrisy – reality of Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan

Syria and Russia: Putin remains firm and highlights hypocrisy – reality of Kosovo, Iraq, and Afghanistan

Boutros Hussein and Lee Jay Walker

Modern Tokyo Times

President Vladimir Putin of the Russian Federation is highlighting the need to resolve international disputes through the proper channels of international law and diplomacy. On the other hand, many political leaders in America appear all too hasty to start another major war and create yet another failed state. Vladimir Putin commented about this reality and given the facts of Afghanistan, Kosovo, Iraq, and Libya; then it would take a brave individual to disagree.

Iraq even today can’t hold a major international conference without spending vast resources on protecting any specific event from the threat of terrorism. Obviously, the fact that the leaders of America, the United Kingdom, France, and others, have to sneak into Afghanistan and back out again quickly highlights the complete failure of decades of Western meddling. Indeed, Afghanistan under Najibullah was more secular and progressive compared with the current reality of this nation.

Modern day Afghanistan is based on continuing feudalism, a land where apostates face death, women throughout most of the nation remain discriminated against, and the Taliban can strike at any moment. On top of this, you still have a major heroin problem and the central government is not only weak, it is corrupt and is increasingly more conservative. Therefore, since Western and Sunni Islamic states began to meddle into Afghanistan they have done nothing but spread terrorism and a dangerous ideology during the first stage. Then after September 11, former allies have become estranged friends and this notably applies to the relationship between America and Pakistan.

Similarly, in Libya many atrocities have been committed by the new power brokers. Indeed, it is difficult to state “power brokers” because various militias and regions have their own power bases. Therefore, the central authority is very weak and clearly tensions throughout Libya remain. Also, many black Africans were lynched by the so-called progressive forces in the early period. Today, meanwhile, many allegations of torture have come to the fore and very little progress is being made.

Vladimir Putin therefore is disillusioned by the constant posturing of certain nations towards bombing and supporting covert operations against independent nations. In Kosovo, the United States and United Kingdom supported Hashim Thaci who is tainted by the organ scandal. Also, Kosovo remains to be a land where Orthodox Christians can’t travel freely in the place of their birth and criminality remains a fact of life.

Vojin Joksimovich wrote in Modern Tokyo Times, regarding the organ scandal in Kosovo, that “In this era of WikiLeaks the UN report dated October 30, 2003 was leaked.  France 24 TV channel was one of several media outlets to reveal the content of this confidential report. Even this author managed to get a copy of this 29 page report. The report originated from Eamonn Smyth, Head of ICTY Mission in Skopje and Pristina to Patrick Lopez Terres, Chief of the ICTY Investigations. The report says that 100-300 mostly Serbian men were abducted and taken by truck/van to detention facilities in Albanian towns of Kukes and Tropoje. Beginning in August 1999 some of these captives (24-100) was transferred from Northern Albania to secondary detention facilities (private homes and rough industrial compounds) in central Albania, mainly near the towns of Burrel and Peshkopi. Then they were moved to a private house south of Burrel that was setup as a makeshift clinic. There, medical equipment and personnel were used to extract body organs from the abductees, who then died. Their remains were buried nearby. The organs were transported to Rinas airport near Tirana. It should be noted that the airport was under the NATO control. A small number of female captives from Kosovo, Albania and Eastern Europe were also taken to the clinic. In addition to abductees taken to Albania alive, an unknown number of bodies of Serbian civilians killed in Kosovo were transported to Albania and buried in remote locations. The last delivery of captives was reported in spring or early summer 2000.

“The report identifies at least eight sources, all ethnic Albanians from Kosovo and Montenegro who served in the KLA. In the report they were listed with numbers as their identities were withheld. Four, who have directly participated in the transport of at least 90 Serbs, provided very detailed accounts of their roles including the exact dates. Of these, three sources delivered captives to the house/clinic south of Burrel. Two have participated in the disposal of human remains and one who has participated in the delivery of body parts to Rinas airport. The transports and surgical procedures were carried out with the knowledge and/or active involvement of mid-level and senior KLA officers. Doctors from Kosovo as well as an Arab doctor were involved. The operation was supported by the men with links to the Albanian secret police operatives of the government of Sali Berisha. Maps of the site locations were included. 10 Serbian victims were identified by name.”

Diana Johnstone commented that “Human rights campaigners in the self-righteous Western democracies are intransigent when it comes to ending what they call ‘the culture of impunity’ so long as it involves, say, Africa. But their own impunity and that of their clients seems more secure than ever.” This comment also applies to the current reality in Syria whereby international terrorists and outside nations are spreading sectarianism in Syria.

Francois Hollande, the new President of France, is already highlighting “a war mongering touch” within just a short period in office. He, like political leaders in America and the United Kingdom, are all too keen to blame the Syrian government for any misdeed. However, when the Free Syrian Army (FSA) which is a fusion of mercenaries, terrorists, and criminals, does massacres and ignites sectarianism then the same Western powers remain silent. This isn’t surprising given their “partners in crime” – Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Qatar – are all assisting in the terrorist and sectarian ratlines engulfing parts of Syria.

President Hollande also insists that President Bashar al-Assad must leave office but Vladimir Putin openly states that this depends on the “will” of the Syrian people. Hollande, just like President Obama, promised “a new world” based on greater transparency and international dialogue. However, behind the rhetoric of both are the same failed policies of supporting international terrorism and giving a “green light” to outside nations to spread their carnage.

Vladimir Putin dismisses many negative comments by certain political leaders who desire to enforce “their thinking” on the people of Syria. He stated that “If you think you can decide that for other nations, go to Cairo now and take part in the Egyptian presidential elections. You can’t do that! Nor can you or anyone else do that in Syria.”

Vladimir Putin further commented that “Why do we think that if we push someone from the current leadership away from power, prosperity will arrive there tomorrow?”

“What is happening in Libya? We all know what kind of a tyrant [Muammar] Gaddafi was…But do you know what was happening in Sirte when militants entered the city? Why do you not write about that? Has humanitarian wellbeing settled there?”

Many citizens in America, the United Kingdom, France, and other nations, are fed up with constant wars, media manipulations, and covert operations involving their elected leaders who are acting undemocratically. Of course, many will agree, but overall the vast majority is disillusioned despite all the domestic propaganda. After all, modern day Afghanistan, Iraq, Kosovo, and Libya, are all failed states or patched up states (Kosovo not recognized by the majority of international nations). On top of this, hundreds of thousands of people have been killed and terrorism is a fact of life in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria because of outside meddling. Meanwhile, an organ tainted leader in Kosovo was supported – implying that killing individuals for organs is acceptable to leaders in Washington and London – because the same individual is free to visit America. Yet while he is free Orthodox Christian children in Kosovo have to be protected if they want to travel freely.

If killing hundreds of thousands of people is deemed fine, increasing narcotic problems (Afghanistan and Kosovo), creating a vacuum whereby terrorists flourish, and then taking the independence away from nations which were sovereign; then by all means, support individuals like Susan Rice, the American representative. However, if you are internationalist and support independence and “a collective approach” when the time is needed – then surely Vladimir Putin makes a million times more sense than the posturing of Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice.

The brutal murders of Muammar Gaddafi and Najibullah in Afghanistan highlight the bloody nature of the forces that were supported to overthrow both individuals. In the case of Kosovo you had political elites within the Albanian leadership who were involved in killing individuals for organs. Meanwhile, Saddam Hussein was taunted and goaded before being killed by the new state apparatus of Iraq.

Saddam Hussien and Muammar Gaddafi were once supported by the same nations which turned against them. It is clear that many atrocities took place under Saddam Hussein but during his time he served the West and Saudi Arabia well by keeping Iran in check. It is this utter hypocrisy and ruthlessness which makes individuals question their-own-so-called political leaders. Therefore, is it progressive to support terrorism and sectarianism against the Syrian people?

Vladimir Putin praised the Kofi Annan plan not because of the current reality on the ground which is being made worse by outside meddling. He did this on the grounds that Kofi Annan is seeking a solution to a complex problem based on political dialogue and not war.

Vladimir Putin stated during his meeting with Chancellor Merkel of Germany, that ”Russia has a good and long-standing relationship with Syria…We support Syria’s stability, sovereignty and people, and all parties should support the plan of the UN envoy Kofi Annan.”

”We have to stop talking about aborting Annan’s plan…Our mission is to end violence in Syria by all sides, and we agreed with Merkel that Russia, Germany and our partners have to de-escalate violence and help Annan achieve that.”

”We believe that we can hold dialogue at the United Nations Security Council, and sure we’ll have contacts with the Syrian leadership and will be in contact with the countries interested in this issue…We will do our best to reach a nonviolent, political solution to the crisis in Syria.”

It is hoped that the Russian Federation will not cave in to international pressure from Washington, London, Paris, Ankara, and Riyadh. Syria needs to be “a line which isn’t walked over” by hypocrites who have supported tainted individuals involved in organ scandals, covertly supported terrorists, remain quiet about the lynching of black Africans in Libya, and other vile episodes. The situation in Syria is being made complex because of the dangerous terrorist and sectarian policies of nations like Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar – along with the usual players – this must end because history is repeating itself too much.
