Terrorist Gharibo: I Issued Several Fatwas Upon which the Terrorists Perpetrated Crimes Against Civilians

14 Aug 2012

DAMASCUS, (SANA) - Terrorist Ahmad Ali Gharibo, one of the armed terrorist groups' Muftis in al-Maliha, Damascus countryside, admitted that he has issued several fatwas to the armed groups that permit killing upon which terrorists have depended to perpetrate a number of crimes against civilians.

"I was born in Aleppo countryside in 1964 and live in al-Maliha, East Ghouta.. I work as the Imam and preacher of Khadija mosque," Terrorist Gharibo said in confessions to the Syrian TV broadcast Monday.

"One day, a car came to my house at 12 midnight.. four armed men came down and asked me to go with them for one hour.. they threatened me of my son if I rejected to go with them.. they took me to Dir al-Asafeer town.. when we arrived in there, we entered a tent where a group of people were inside with drugs in front of them," the terrorist added.

He said "After interrogating me by the armed group, I pleaded to them to inform me about the person which threatened me.. they answered that his name was Mazen Zamzamm, a leader of an armed terrorist group in al-Maliha."

Terrorist Gharibo added that those evil persons were drug addicts, and one of them has raped a married woman.

"Later, they introduced me to a man called Abu Adi from Homs who has escaped from the army in Saqba.. they told me that they will give him the leadership of the group and they will name themselves as the free army, I told them you are free, it is up to you," terrorist Gharibo said.

He added that a fatwa has been issued on a website, known as the fatwa No. 107, because it was issued by 107 Sheikhs inside and outside Syria.. it permits to kill anyone who deals with the State if he was proven a killer, they asked me about my opinion, I answered yes, it is true.

"It was my first fault to give a fatwa to kill.. they were killing in a unnatural way.. they were mutilating the bodies.. I remember that they have killed five persons and threw their bodies in the sewage and rubbish containers," he said.

Terrorist Gharibo went on to say that al-Qaeda and Jabhat al-Nasra in Syria are takfiris, they believe in sectarianism, they regard bloodshed as lawful and they have no problem to kill civilians during their evil acts.

US-backed "Free Syrian Army" (FSA) terrorists bomb UN in Damascus - US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's obtuse hypocrisy turns US into international laughingstock.

RT - Corbett Report
August 16, 2012

I just witnessed yet another gruesome video of an atrocity committed by members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) against a supporter of a the Syrian Government, only one of seven beheaded that I was able to bring myself to look at in the video entited FSA Raise AlQaeda Flag After Beheading 7 Civilians on http://www.liveleak.com/c/syriangirl. Just as the UK government Chilcot Inquiry last year found the UK (and Australian) government war against Iraq in 2003 to have been illegal, how can the supply of weapons and money to these sadistic killers by France, the UK, the US, etc. not be criminal? Given Bob Carr's expulsion of the Syrian ambassador on the pretext of the absurd and proven lie that the Syrian Government killed its own supporters in the Houla massacre of last year, how can Australia not be also held morally culpable for such crimes?

The same mass murderers, who illegally imposed sanctions and launched two wars against Iraq in 1991 and 2003 causing a horrific death toll possibly as high as 3.2 million, are now, through terrorist proxies, waging a war against the people of Syria and its government. Amongst the latest victims of this war are 35 Syrians killed in a chemical weapons attack.

SYRIA: US-NATO Backed Al Qaeda Terrorists Armed with WMDs. Chemical Weapons against the Syrian People

From Global Research, 19 March 2013

After a 10 year war/occupation in Iraq, the death of over a million people including thousands of US soldiers, all based on patently false claims of the nation possessing "weapons of mass destruction," (WMDs), it is outrageous hypocrisy to see the West arming, funding, and politically backing terrorists in Syria who in fact both possess, and are now using such weapons against the Syrian people.

At least 25 are reported dead after a chemical weapons attack targeting Syrian soldiers was carried out by NATO-backed terrorists in the northern city of Aleppo.

Aleppo is located near the Syrian-Turkish border. Had Libya's looted stockpiles of chemical weapons been shipped to Syria, they would have passed through Turkey along with weapons sent from Libya by the US and thousands of Libyan terrorists who are admittedly operating inside Syria, and would most likely be used to target cities like Aleppo.

Worse yet, any chemical weapons imported into the country would implicate NATO either directly or through gross negligence, as the weapons would have passed through NATO-member Turkey, past US CIA agents admittedly operating along the border and along side Western-backed terrorists inside Syria.

Russia has accused Western powers of attempting to delay a United Nations probe into the recent use of chemical weapons by foreign-backed militants in the Syrian city of Aleppo.

During a Wednesday session at the UN Security Council, Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin voiced Moscow's support for the Syrian government's call for an independent inquiry into the chemical attack by foreign-backed militants in Aleppo.

This is one reponse to the New York Times article Chemicals Would Be ‘Game Changer’ in Syria, Obama Says of 20 Mar 2013.

Something is rotten in the state of the U.S.A. A clever detective knows to consider all possible suspects. So why do US officials and media pundits have no interest in pondering if FSA rebels or other anti-Assad groups might have employed chemical weapons?

In the fall of 2011, US Representative Mike Rogers urged the White House to secure deadly stocks of sarin and mustard gas that were vulnerable to being looted in Libya.

On October 19, 2011, Hillary Clinton said, “I am pleased to announce that we are going to put even more money into helping Libya secure and destroy dangerous stockpiles of weapons.… And the Administration, working with Congress, is going to provide $40 million to support this effort….We will also work with Libya to destroy chemical weapons stocks.”

Peter Bouckaert of Human Rights Watch, who went to Libya to search for the above unsecured munitions, said "The problem is that the locals usually find out first and by the time we arrive and we can get some guards there, a lot of the most dangerous weapons have already been taken away.”

Thus, any dimestore detective should conclude that CWs are on the black market and available to folk other than Assad. That our people aren’t even going to consider the possibility—well, it’s very telling. It’s Iraq Redux. Whether Assad has done it or not, U.S. leadership really WANTS him to have done it, because they WANT a reason to attack.

TUNIS, (SANA) - The Tunisian e-newspaper 'Al-Jarida' revealed that around 2000 Tunisians are fighting among the armed terrorist groups in Syria.

Abo Qusai, a Tunisian who fought in Syria, told the newspaper that the Tunisian fighters are of various ages and include students, workers and jobless people.

Abo Qusai revealed that there is a direct line through which those terrorists go to Syria which is that of Libya/Benghazi.

He referred to a terrorist group called 'al-Darneh Battalions' which arrived in Syria from Libya two weeks before he fled Syria.

The Tunisian terrorist said that he and his Tunisian colleagues are being treated as slaves by the armed terrorist groups in which ranks they are fighting, which made him flee Syria and return to Tunisia.

H. Said

The end of the article cited under the heading, '2000 Tunisians are fighting in Syria' carried the really awful punchline which destroys the credibility (if any is left) for the so-called rebels fighting the Syrian government. They are mercenaries and slaves. This guy fled Syria where he was being forced to fight as a slave.

"The Tunisian terrorist said that he and his Tunisian colleagues are being treated as slaves by the armed terrorist groups in which ranks they are fighting, which made him flee Syria and return to Tunisia."

This is what the governments of the U.S., Britain, Saudi Arabia and France have aligned themselves to support.

There should be no foreign national soldiers in Syria.

Syrian journalists are not only aiding the Syrian people and the Syrian Arab Army in conveying the truth to the world, which western and NATO propagandists work hard to conceal and spread their own version of events, the Syrian journalists are paying a very heavy price in the crisis by being directly targeted by NATO’s ‘Freedom Fighters’ for assassination and kidnapping to silence them, remember, anybody who is not Nusra Front is a ‘Shabeeha’.

Just now the Syrian ministry of information, the ministry in charge of state media has confirmed the martyrdom of TV reporter Yara Abbas in Qussayr, Homs Countryside today while conducting her duty in covering the advances of the Syrian Arab Army units in Dhabha town near Dhabha military airport in a direct attempt on the Ikhbariya TV crew by a group of FSA snipers.

Martyr Yara Abbas Syria’s Ikhbariya TV Reporter

Syria’s Ikhbariya News TV headquarters was directly targeted in an attack by herds of Nusra Front terrorists in the dawn of June 27, 2012 in Damascus countryside killing 3 journalists at least and 4 guards in an unprecedented attack sponsored by some Arab regimes and western officials who refused to condemn the attack.

Martyr Yara’s last message today 27 May 2013 before her martyrdom to Syria’s Ikhbariya News Channel:

A number of Syrian media figures were assassinated, kidnapped, and directly targeted throughout the Syrian crisis after labeling them ‘Shabeeha’ we can name a few: prominent Syria TV presenter Muhammad Saeed kidnapped with no trace since August 2012 when FSA pages showed him kidnapped and tortured, reporter Maya Nasser sniped by an FSA sniper while covering the attack on military staff building in Damascus, Hussein Murtada with the most attempts on his life by sniping, ambush and detonating cars in his office’s garage, journalist Ali Abbas the head of Arab News Section in SANA news agency, kidnapping the Ikhbariya crew in Tal Mnen whom were rescued by an SAA special operation.

On December 05, 2011 the European Union ministers of foreign affairs convened to come up with a decision that will stain their foreign policy and label them hypocrites forever. They decided to ban a number of Syrian based channels, namely Addounia the privately owned satellite channel, Champress a privately owned website & Al Watan Newspaper a privately owned newspaper. And not surprisingly the Arab League, (a formation representing the governments of the Arab World, with the exception of Syria) issued an order on September 05, 2012 to 2 satellite management companies, Nilesat & Arabsat, sponsored by the League, to take down Syrian State satellite TV, Syria News another state owned satellite channel & Addounia TV the privately owned channel from air, for no publicly stated logical reason.

According to the Wikipedia article, Hula Massacre, between 35 and 58 inhabitants of Hula, a town in Lebanon, close to the north of Palestine were massacred between 31 October an 1 November 1948.

Sixty three years and 6 months later, in the Houla region a strong base of support for the secular government of President Bashar al-Assad, approximately 200 kilometres to the north-north-west in Syria,

108 civilians were murdered by anti-government terrorists, who had been armed and supplied by the United States, France, Israel, the UK and Arab dictatorships. The lying mainstream and 'alternative' blamed the Syrian government for the massacre, ignoring the evidence and a detailed statement from the Syrian ambassador to the UN.
