The UN envoy headed by Lakhdar Brahimi is using their desire for ceasefire during the Eid al-Adha holiday as an excuse to paint the Syrian government in a negative light. Eid al-Adha is a holiday where Muslims honor the willingness to sacrifice Isaac by Abraham before God intervened and demanded a sheep be sacrificed instead.
The Free Syrian Amry (FSA) has said that they will not stop fighting even if the Syrian government agrees to Brahimi’s terms. According to General Mustafa al-Sheikh, chief of the military council of the FSA, the terrorist faction would “stop firing if the regime stops” however they doubt the Syrian government would hold to their word because they allegedly have “lied many times before.” Therefore the FSA have no plans to stop fighting.
Assad stated that “if this humble initiative succeeds, we hope that we can build on it in order to discuss a longer and more effective ceasefire and this has to be part of a comprehensive political process.”
There are concerns that Brahimi is setting the stage for an attack by the FSA on the Syrian government during the ceasefire, and therefore the Syrian government are “studying the cessation of military operations” with this in mind. The FSA have killed an estimated 34,000 people since March of 2011 and the Syrian government does not want to give the terrorist faction an open invitation to continue their assault on the Syrian people.
reported that the FSA have been given shoulder-mounted surface-to-air missiles – some of which are manufactured in the US. Marakov said that “militants fighting Syrian government forces have portable missile launchers of various states, including American-made Stingers.”
Valdimir Putin, president of Russia explains that although Russia has supplied Assad’s armies with weapons, they are not the type that could be used in a civil war.
The globalist-funded Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) has been feeding mainstream media rhetoric that is pro-FSA. The SOHR say that the JAN is working with the FSA against Assad’s armies in events like the destruction at Aleppo.
Propaganda surrounding who is arming the FSA is further mired with statements from Muhieddine Lathkani, a member of the Syrian National Council which is directly linked to the Bilderberg Group. Lathkani claims that Obama refuses to arm the FSA “with heavy weapons” and that this move “is giving Assad the upper hand.”
In August, Obama signed a secret order authorizing US support of the Free Syrian Army (FSA). The CIA and other agencies were empowered by Obama earlier this year to provide intelligence and training.
The US Treasury has granted release of funds to the FSA through the Syrian Support Group (SSG), a Washington representative of the FSA to conduct financial transactions. The SSG’s “vision” is to “promote the establishment of a free, independent and democratic Syria.” Whenever the ideals of democracy are brought to a foreign nation, through the assistance of the US government, American interests in the resources of that nation are evident.
While the SSG claim to be a grassroots effort, they admit they are a nonprofit organization based in Washington, DC “committed to a pluralistic, civil and democratic Syria in which everyone, the military and the government included, are subject to the Rule of Law.”

The Salafi terrorist cells are given different names depending on their location geographically (such as al-Qaeda, FSA, etc. . . ) so that the idea that they are separate is purveyed to the general public. However, they are subscribing to an extreme form of Islam that is encompassing in Saudi Arabia. The Salafis being used in Syria are exceptionally violent and adhere to sectarianism with complete abhorrence for the US. This ideal is fostered because it helps to facilitate the psychological mindset necessary for manipulation.
Last week it was discovered that the FSA are being armed by Saudi Arabia. The attack in Aleppo was actually funded with ammunition and weaponry from the US-aligned Middle Eastern nation. The FSA denies knowledge of how they came to obtain this shipment from Saudi Arabia; however it is fairly obvious that the Salafi extremists in their country are supporting the US-backed terrorist faction. Saudi officials have also declined comment thinking that refusal to speak will correspond with their ignorance. Yet, Saudi ammunition has been used since the inception of the CIA-trained “rebels” paid for my “foreign aid” from the US and British governments.
Last month, the Saudi Arabian government, with support from Elite families in Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, gave generously to the FSA. In a US State Department statement, it was explained that: “The battalion rep or commander travels to Turkey, where he meets Gulf individuals or Syrians who live in the Gulf. The battalion presents ‘projects’ that need sponsorship, for example: targeting a checkpoint costs $20-30K, while targeting an airport cost $200-300K. . . . A video taping . . . is required to provide evidence of the operation.”
Earlier this month, at the UN General Assembly’s annual ministerial meeting the accusation that the US and Israel are “aiding terrorists” was voiced by Syrian representative al-Moallem. He said: “This terrorism which is externally supported is accompanied by unprecedented media provocation based on igniting religious extremism sponsored by well-known states in the region that facilitate the flow of arms, money and fighters through the borders of some neighboring countries.”
Al-Mollem maintains that the US and Israeli interference in Syria and their quest through proxy war to bring down Assad’s government are disregarding “the domestic affairs of Syria, and the unity of its people and its sovereignty.”
