Premeditated act of deception

It is not the first time for the scenario of chemical weapons to be fabricated by the armed terrorist groups and their supporters at the time when UN committees were visiting Syria. The timing of the new scenario aims to distract the attention of the UN experts currently visiting Syria from the objectives of their mission, because if the experts continue their work, facts will be disclosed about the armed groups’ use of internationally-banned chemical weapons in Khan al-Asal and other areas.

The visit of the UN team comes upon the invitation of the Syrian government and by an agreement between the UN and Foreign and Expatriates Ministry. It is the Syrian government that invited the UN to investigate the use of chemical weapons in Khan al-Assal area in Aleppo, because Syria has clear-cut evidence on the use of chemical weapons by the armed terrorist groups.

These lies and totally unfounded allegations have become well-known to the Syrian government and people, constituting an attempt to prevent the international investigation committee from carrying out its task and to influence the committee's report in a way that serves the armed terrorist groups and the countries standing behind them.

The channels of instigation and misleading, especially al-Jazeera and al-Arabiya, which are complicit in the bloodshed of Syrian people, started a feverish campaign yesterday claiming that the Syrian Arab Army was using toxic gases in al-Ghouta. Such null and void news is part of the global war being launched against Syria. It is not a coincidence that these allegations and this aggressive media attack started with the beginning of the UN experts’ mission on investigating chemical weapons use in Syria.  If the use of chemical weapons is true, it has definitely been carried out by terrorist and Takfiri groups, because they have proved in action that they refrain from no crime. 

In part, these baseless allegations aim to raise the armed terrorist groups’ morale in light of the humiliating defeats inflicted upon them by the Syrian Arab armed forces that are fulfilling national and constitutional duties of combating terrorism everywhere in Syria and protecting the Syrian people against the criminal acts of the armed terrorist groups. The cries of terrorists and their calls for aid accompany the fact that the armed forces are advancing on the ground, and also accompany the fabricated campaign waged by some channels in desperate bid to imbue false morale in the armed terrorist groups. These allegations by the terrorist groups and the satellite channels that support them are just a desperate bid to conceal their failures on the battlefield and reflect the state of hysteria and collapse that these terrorist groups are suffering.

Another sinister objective of the groundless and untrue allegations of using toxic gas by the Syrian Arab army is that the US and Saudi Arabia want to inflame the situation and obstruct the convening of Geneva conference as it is the case with the US stance which disavows its understanding with the Russian side with the aim of prolonging the crisis and hindering its peaceful solution.

Saudi oil proceeds to fund sectarian wars

Since the very beginning of the crisis in Syria, the princes of Al-Saud have been playing vicious and devastating role through exerting unceasing efforts to support armed terrorist groups to commit heinous crimes and savage atrocities against Syrian people.

The princes of Al-Saud have been putting their financial weight to achieve the sinister goal of inciting a sectarian war among the Syrian people. But thanks to the high awareness of the Syrian people and their commitment to the time-old peaceful co-existence among all spectra of society, the Saudi menacing attempts were a complete failure.

Moreover, the Foreign Minister of Al-Saud Saud al-Faisal claimed that supporting the armed groups in Syria is a religious duty whereas neither al-Faisal nor anyone of the Saudi ruling family have considered that arming the Palestinians in their struggle against Israeli occupation forces as a duty. On the contrary, they have been working to depress resistance acts and force the Palestinian Authority to accept the American Zionist agenda which perpetuates occupation through unilateral deals that do not meet the aspirations of the Palestinian people, especially with regard to the liberation of the occupied territories, the establishment of an independent Palestinian state and the repatriation of the Palestinian refugees to their indigenous homeland.

However, Al-Saud’s family did not feel despair and continued feverish attempts to destroy Syria, shed more Syrian blood and kill more Syrians. Recently, chief of the Saudi intelligence, Bander Bin Sultan, one of the main supporters of terrorists in Syria, paid a visit to Moscow with the aim of seducing the Russian leadership to change its attitude regarding the crisis in Syria. But Bander’s attempt was foiled as Russian president’s top foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov said that concrete questions about technical military cooperation were not discussed during the visit.

Another senior Russian official Vitaly Naumkin, Director of the Institute of Oriental Studies in Moscow, described Western media reports on a Saudi proposal to purchase arms from Moscow, as a kind of media disinformation that aims to blemish Russia's firm and balanced stand towards the crisis in Syria referring that this news is  nonsense aimed to either sway Syria's stance or, more probably, to tarnish Russia's reputation and raise doubts about the fact that Russia adopts a serious and rational stance on Syria.

The denial came after Reuters news agency said in a report that Saudi Arabia has offered Russia a package of economic incentives if Moscow agrees to scale back its support for Syria.

After his shameful defeat in Moscow and his failure to convince Russian leadership to change its unwavering stand towards the crisis in Syria, Bandar and his ilk started another nasty attempt to implement the American Zionist project against Syria. Saudi Arabia reportedly plans to use the proceeds from its recent oil production of 400,000 barrels-per-day to fund its supply of weapons to the armed groups waging war inside Syria, Iraq, Egypt and Lebanon.
The development comes amid reports by informed sources that Al Saud has put Bandar bin Sultan in charge of waging the domestic sectarian conflicts within the Arab countries.

As is the case of his previous wicked attempts, Syrian people will certainly foil Bandar’s new attempt thanks to their high awareness and strong determination to deter all conspiracies being hatched against their country.

Western Support to Terrorists

According to documents obtained by the Independent and  extensive talks on the ground by the British newspaper, the level of equipment sent by the West to Syria’s terrorists were divided between the Islamists and more so-called moderate factions to equip them for the fight against the Syrians.

The British Government, added the Daily,  is considering sending weapons to opposition  fighters. So far the UK has sent around £8m of “non-lethal” aid, according to official papers seen by The Independent, comprising five 4x4 vehicles with ballistic protection; 20 sets of body armour; four trucks (three 25 tonne, one 20 tonne); six 4x4 SUVs; five non-armoured pick-ups; one recovery vehicle; four fork-lifts; three advanced “resilience kits” for region hubs, designed to rescue people in emergencies; 130 solar powered batteries; around 400 radios; water purification and rubbish collection kits; laptops; VSATs (small satellite systems for data communications) and printers.

According to the Daily, CIA officers have, in fact, been carrying out vetting since June last year. But the political and religious beliefs of the terrorists khatibas or battalions, have not remained constant. “The problem is that some of the khatibas which used to be semi-secular have now become Islamist. So it’s a question of constant monitoring,” said a security contractor, a former US army Ranger who is part of a liaison team with the Syrian opposition in Turkey.

The same uncertainty has limited the number of “moderate” fighters passing through training camps in Jordan run by former Western military personnel; fortnight-long courses largely restricted to instructions on tactics and the use of small arms. There is some evidence, however, of small quantities of missiles arriving in Syria for the opposition, some of them apparently obtained from Croatia in a shipment organized by the Americans and paid for by Gulf states earlier this year.

More recently the terrorists have also used Konkurs wire-guided anti-tank missiles from former Warsaw Pact arsenals. the missiles are largely in the hands of Islamist groups such as Jabhat al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham.

Facts on Beirut Southern Suburb Explosion

The explosion  which hit Beirut 's Southern Suburb on Thursday, August 15th  was not surprising,  only in its size. Hezbollah was expecting it. Though it took  every possible precaution but it  was aware that preventing  such explosions is impossible.  Facts  and Results speak themselves :

- First, the bombing was professional par excellence. The access  of the booby trapped car to the appointed place, and the quality of used  explosives were not the work of amateurs.  The Place was monitored precisely and the  booby trapped car was delivered probably in cooperation with hirelings at home.

- Second, such explosion can not happen  unless backed by a master-minded   intelligence system . It is similar to Israel's bombings in Lebanon, looks like al-Qaeda bombings in Iraq and al-Nusra Front   in Syria, or  even similar to earlier  bombings of  a conflict between great  intelligence agencies.

- Third, the explosion occurred while Hezbollah was commemorating 2006  victory over Israel, and in the wake of announcement of the Secretary-General of Hezbollah, that the resistance blew up  the two explosives in the Israeli patrol recently infiltrated into Lebanon from Allabouna area. Israel silence and confusion because of this quality operation   were overwhelmed  after Nasrallah's speech. Moreover, the Secretary General of Hezbollah, was pre-empted all this information by a live  public appearance in front of his audience , in an eventual defiance to Israel to target him.

- Fourth, this  second bombing comes less than 40 days from  an earlier  bombing against Beirut 's Southern Suburb. Again,  also targeting the incubator environment for Hezbollah, perhaps to say that Hezbollah  which defies Israel and the fighting in Syria is not able to protect itself so that  it needs to be  protected by another party , in an attempt to raise  the issue of Hezbollah's weapons, again.

- Fifth, This bombing was  followed by an international, Israeli and Arab campaign against  Hezbollah. The campaign  was escalated after Hezbollah  involvement in the fighting in Syria, and its  contribution to the Fall of al-Qusair area  and making of  some strategic shifts in the battle. The Campaign emerged during the visit of U.S. President Barack Obama to Israel where he for  5 times  described Hezbollah as "terrorist". This was followed by the European Union decision to place the military wing of Hezbollah on the list of terrorism. The two positions coincided with a similar  Arab Gulf position against Hezbollah by firing  Lebanese working in the Gulf under suspects of being close to Hezbollah.

- Sixth, the attack came after statements made publicly by al-Nusra  Front ,   Free Syrian army" or armed opposition affiliated groups threatening  to revenge Hezbollah   in its own stronghold incubator  .

- Seventh, The attack came shortly after the recent  speech of Lebanese President Michel Suleiman, who surprised everyone by criticizing Hezbollah weapons and its role  in Syria.

- Eighth, the bombing came  at a time of large Arab  chaos – reflected in renewed violent  bombings in Iraq, and Egypt's bloodbath between supporters and opponents of ousted President Mohamed Morsi,. This chaos which  extends from Iraq to Egypt, Syria and Lebanon, is taking place, while  the US seeks  to impose  a suspicious peace process between Israel and the Palestinians amid a more suspicious  Arab silence.

- Ninth, the attack  followed the announcement by President Bashar al-Assad that the fight will continue against terrorists, and President al-Assad 's defiance  coincided with  great preparations between the warring parties in Syria to move forward in making  the greatest  military achievements, not to forget the failed attempt  of the Saudi intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan to bribe the  Russians to abandon Syria under the leadership of  President Bashar al-Assad.

In short, the bombing which hit Beirut  southern suburb   came  at the peak of  conflict between two axes in the region,  with each party feels that its  defeat is impossible. The first axis includes the US , Israel and some Arab countries, and the second includes Russia, China, Iran and Hezbollah.

As  US-Russian relations  became more intensified  with the  case of the American spy "Snowden" , who was granted political  asylum in Russia, the said grave  security disturbances which extend from Iraq to Lebanon via Syria,  are an integral part  in the conflict  of axes .  Therefore, though  it is important to know the exploder,  more importantly is that the beneficiary is quite known.

Game Over, Facts Revealed

To plan, inflame, ignite and to  fragmentize  the Arab region for the benefit of  the colonial powers, is what the  Muslim Brotherhood's policy in Egypt aims at.

 Backed by the Emirate of Erdogan and Tamim bin Hamad' chiefdom, they demand the intervention of the UN Security Council, the Arab League and the Organization of the Islamic Conference against the Egyptian state that carried out the will of the Egyptian people in the dispersion  of sit-ins of  Muslim Brotherhood.

Erdogan' attitudes and Qatar's chiefdom versus the Egyptian people and their state are reminiscent of the same stances they had  towards the Syrian crisis when they supported the armed terrorist groups to create chaos  against the Syrian people and state.

 The Zionist malicious scheme ignites the region in sectarian wars so that they can easily divide the region, similar to what happened in Sudan, Libya and what is happening now in Egypt and Syria.

Earlier, the outgoing Qatar's prince Hamad Bin Khaliefa vowed to contribute to bring about the downfall of the Syrian State, leadership and people even if the cost will amount to 2 billion dollars. He forkouted, armed, threatened and pledged to exert all efforts to topple the Syrian leadership but he could not. He found himself recently obliged to abdicate the reins of power to his son Tamam to avoid the embarrassments he may face.

Erdogan follows the same way of extorting the Gulf financially to profiteer his personal account. He is about to announce his failure to subdue Syria, ignoring that this task is over the head of these bunch of conspirators.

While Al-Saud, having failed through their terrorist Wahhabi takfirist groupings to make Syria bow, still bet on the possibility of warmongering against Syria.

Until now, the notorious Bandar bin Sultan is still globetrotting Europe, America and «Israel», trying to buy positions and wars.

 This is what may happen to brotherly Egypt whose people refused to be governed by a clandestine global terrorist organization which is impossible to trust. The history of Muslim Brotherhood is filled with conspiracies, assassinations, liquidations, immolations and treason.
