And the thing is, they are. Muslims from around the world -- the US, Europe, Africa, Asia -- are joining the jihad in Syria to fight for Islamic conquest and supremacism. Religious minorities are being annihilated by the jihadists, and yet another nation will fall to this brutal and bloody ideology.
Obama is aiding the jihadists; McCain is sneaking into Syria to pose for pics with them. The former is complicit, the latter is clueless. The outcome is the same.
Al-Qaeda Leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri Calls Upon Muslims To Join The Jihad In Syria As Means To Restore Caliphate, Defy U.S., Liberate Palestine MEMRI
In a 23-minute audio message titled "65 Years after the Creation of the Occupying State of Israel," Al-Qaeda leader Ayman Al-Zawahiri calls the creation of Israel a crime and attacks the US for its consistent support of this country. He also urges Muslims to join the jihad in Syria in order to free Palestine and restore the Islamic Caliphate.
Online jihad operatives associated with Jabhat Al-Nusra interpreted the message's content as the Al-Qaeda leader's arbitration in the dispute regarding the effort by Al-Qaeda in Iraq to incorporate Jabhat Al-Nusra into the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. They contend that Al-Zawahiri's message officially divided between the Syrian and Iraqi jihad arenas, and allowed Jabhat Al-Nusra to maintain its organizational independence.
The following are the main points of Al-Zawahiri's message, which was released on June 5, 2013 by Al-Qaeda's media company Al-Sahab and was posted on leading jihadi forums.
In recent days Syrian opposition sources reported on Facebook that the nephew of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki had died while fighting in Damascus on behalf of the Syrian regime, and that his body had arrived in Iraq. Members of the Jihadi forum Al-Fida cited these reports.
A female member on the forum cited a report that was published May 31, 2013 on the Facebook page "'Umawi Live Syria" under the heading: “The Nephew of the Rafidi Zoroastrian Iraqi Prime Minister Has Been Trampled in Al-Saida Zainab [Tomb] in Damascus."
