The Obama Regime claims that aL-Qaeda has been decimated. But the reality is very different. Al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, the al-Nusra has taken the lead against Assad’s army. They have won the major victories and are the best fighting force of the rebels.They are also winning the popularity of Syria’ Sunnis and are poised to have major influence in post Assad Syria.
(Reuters) – Having seen its star wane in Iraq, al Qaeda has staged a comeback in neighbouring Syria, posing a dilemma for the opposition fighting to remove President Bashar al-Assad and making the West balk at military backing for the revolt.
The rise of al Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, al-Nusra Front, which the United States designated a terrorist organisation last week, could usher in a long and deadly confrontation with the West, and perhaps Israel.
Inside Syria, the group is exploiting a widening sectarian rift to recruit Sunnis who saw themselves as disenfranchised by Assad’s Alawite minority, an offshoot of Shi’ite Islam that dominates Syria’s power and security structures.
Al-Nusra appears to have gained popularity in a country that has turned more religious as the uprising, mainly among Sunni Muslims, has been met with increasing force by authorities
Another Obama lie exposed.
