U.S.-funded Jihadist “Holy War” in Syria Seeks Sharia Dictatorship

Contrary to claims by Western governments and Islamist tyrants financing the “revolution” in Syria, foreign jihadist forces and al Qaeda terrorists battling the secular Bashir al-Assad regime are not trying to create a “democracy” with “human rights” for all. Instead, they are waging a so-called jihad, or “holy war,” to build an Islamic dictatorship under Sharia law as part of an emerging international Muslim system, Doctors Without Borders co-founder Jacques Beres confirmed after returning from Syria.

Contrary to claims by Western governments and Islamist tyrants financing the “revolution” in Syria, foreign jihadist forces and al-Qaeda terrorists battling the secular Bashar al-Assad regime are not trying to create a “democracy” with “human rights” for all. Instead, they are waging so-called jihad, or “holy war,” to build an Islamic dictatorship under Sharia law as part of an emerging international Muslim system, Doctors Without Borders co-founder Jacques Beres confirmed after returning from Syria.

Dr. Beres, who spent two weeks treating injured fighters in the city of Aleppo, told Reuters that at least half of the “Syrian rebels” he dealt with were actually foreigners from around the world. They came from Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq, and even Europe. Critics noted that 11 years after 9/11, the U.S. government is again funding al-Qaeda and its affiliates — an odd but unsurprising development considering history.

Many of the foreign rebels have previous battle experience from fighting American troops throughout the Middle East. Some have even openly threatened to attack the United States after Assad’s regime falls, the Christian Science Monitor reported in a piece entitled “Syria's rebels have a new villain: the United States.”

As The New American and several other sources, including U.S. officials, have documented for months, a large percentage of the Western establishment-backed fighters are actually openly affiliated with al-Qaeda. One estimate suggests as many as one fourth of the rebel groups in Syria are affiliated with the infamous terror group, according to House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.).
