Progressive Socialist Party leader MP Walid Jumblat slammed on Monday Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah's description of Syria's war as a “fight against Takfiris,” accusing the Syrian regime of hiding behind the Islamist jihadist al-Nusra Front to conduct attacks in Iraq and Lebanon.
"President Bashar Assad's regime executed terrorist attacks in many locations, in Iraq for example, by claiming it was fighting occupation and it also released many al-Nusra members from jails upon the eruption of the Syrian revolution,” Jumblat stated in his weekly editorial in the PSP-affiliated al-Anbaa website.
"This reminds us of what happened with Shaker al-Absi and Fatah al Islam.”Jumblat said that as a result of the “desperation created because of the international community's passiveness towards the crisis in Syria, many rebels might have joined the Front.”"To a part of the revolutionaries, the Front has become the main resistance against the regime,” he pointed out.
"There is no doubt that the confusion created by suggesting it is either the regime or al-Nusra Front delays the consolidation between the opposition's groups and prolongs the regime's reign.” Read moreAl Qaeda's declaration( Al Nusra was not consulted this) its alliance with Al Nusra, it gives a compelling leverage to criminal assad, immensely setback for the FSA revolutionary, that not only gives Assad attacking lebelling the Revolutionery as "terrorists, hunting terrorists, sadistic attacking, evoking sectarian genocide" but also it gives excuse to west and US, put themselves, delay or not arming FSA revolutionary, just in case the lethal arms end up " al Qaeda", in my view al Qaeda associate with criminal assad more closely than the Revolution. Al Qaeda point of view nothing to lose either sided with the Opposition or sided criminal Assad. Yes there is some FSA people went to- without knowing - al Nusra's unsavory association because of its resources, these Syrian people will come back to FSA control when they have enough resources and weapon. How about Hezbollah? What is difference between Hezbollah and al Nusra? Why Hezbollah is not terrorists lists to European while al Nusra?
