Evidence: Syrian Rebels used Chemical Weapons (not Assad)
Shoebat Foundation ^ | August 27, 2013 | Walid Shoebat and Ben Barrack

Posted on 08/27/2013 5:39:00 AM PDT by george76

Recent news of a chemical weapons attack in Syria smacks of desperation. The question comes down to who is most desperate right now, the Assad regime or the Muslim Brotherhood rebels? Consider that since June, Assad’s forces have been winning. According to a CBS News report from last month, victories for the rebels had become “increasingly rare” and that the Muslim Brotherhood-backed opposition fighters were sustaining “some of their heaviest losses” near Damascus.

The New York Times echoed this sentiment, even saying that before gaining the upper hand, concerns were that Assad would use chemical weapons; he did not.

In fact, even before Assad’s forces gained the momentum, a UN official reportedly found evidence of rebels using chemical weapons but no evidence Assad’s regime did

...

Testimony from victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-wracked nation, a senior U.N. diplomat said Monday.

Carla del Ponte, a member of the U.N. Independent International Commission of Inquiry on Syria, told Swiss TV there were “strong, concrete suspicions but not yet incontrovertible proof,” that rebels seeking to oust Syrian strongman Bashar al-Assad had used the nerve agent.

But she said her panel had not yet seen any evidence of Syrian government forces using chemical weapons

We should encourage Assad to waste his land, from North to South and East to West with Sarin.

We should encourage the “Rebels” to waste the land, from North to South and East to West with Sarin.

That way, no intervention, no more civil war...

John French Kerry and virtually ALL news reports are saying the chemicals couldn’t have been delivered the WAY they were delivered if the rebels had done it - that they lack the capability. Therefore, open and shut that ASSAD did it.

I don’t trust Kerry, Obama, Hagel or the news media.

Don’t know what the full truth is, yet, but know who I don’t trust.

What is next??? nukes?

No country in the world creates better disinformation than the Soviet U, oops, I mean Russia.

They are the undisputed masters in leaking false information.

They are pros, nobody comes close to their level of professional lying and speading falshoods. My hat off to them this time.

None of this will get much coverage in the US media. We are being manipulated again, just like the run up to the attack on Serbia.

The Sunni Muslim Brotherhood, as usual, provides more evil spin. It bears false witness while committing murder in order to push an agenda.

Lying, bearing false witness, blood libel, and murder.

Yeah, that smells like the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood.

The whole rush to rain fire down on the Assad regime is very suspicious, for the very reason set forth in this article. First, their main tactical support (other then the Obama regime) has come through Egypt, and it's unlikely that pipeline, in the form of weapons and people (from places like Benghazi to the west and from the streets of Alexandria and Cairo) has been halted by the toppling of Morsi.

Assad did, indeed, begin turning the tide in June.

Obama's Credibility Gap (only 9 percent of Americans favor intervention in Syria) becomes a real problem in the real world as it's become more clear over time how the desire of the Saudi Sunnis to use the U.S. as a mercenary arm, and the willingness of Obama to obey is being slowly brought to light.

In preliminary trials for Morsi and his Capos it just came out that our administration personally bribed them, as high as $850,000. That news is being buried by the compliant, clueless news media. The War Powers Act has so far been ignored by mouthpieces like Graham and McCain.

The whole thing stinks. Is there an American interest in this theater? Are our war powers now completely in the hands of the Saudi royals?

Once again, as in Benghazi, honest peole have to ask why we are doing anything to aid al-Qaida?

HANDS OFF SYRIA!!!!

Once again, Ted Cruz makes more sense that the horrible “human rightsers” obama, Kerry, and McCain:

http://video.foxnews.com/v/2630639943001/sen-cruz-us-needs-to-focus-on-protecting-national-security/?playlist_id=930909813001

“Human rightsers”—with their “humanitarian interventions”, “anointing” rebel groups as “the legitimate government of” whatever country— have NEVER done anything good for over 35 years!!!!

And ever since the mid-1990s, they have specialized in backing Christian-killers, jihadist, and criminal thugs like Izetbegovic, the KLA, Morsi, and the Libyan and Syrian “rebels”.

Flush the “human rightsers” and obamabots down the toilet!!!!

Obama has painted himself into a corner w/ his stupid "red line" comment.

Now he has to do something or he looks like a weakling and a coward. Meanwhile, Putin is licking his chops for a chance to punch Obama right in the nose, after poking him in eye over the NSA debacle.

A half-hearted, ala bj, cruise missile attack on a facility in the middle of nowhere will be a joke, and recognized as such by every party. It will only confirm his weakness.

A genuine attack has NO backing in the US and could bring a retaliation from Russia using the Syrians as frontmen. At that point the fat's in the fire.

Stupid stuff. As Mesta told you guys elsewhere, what has the US, Britain and France desperate is gold - which they had hoped to grab from Gaddaffy, and which they now think may have made its way to Syria. It turned out not to be with the tuaregs.

Everyone is now broke. France tried to get their gold back, and got nothing. The Sauds were importing mountains of gold, and it mostly turned out to be tungsten. The world treasuries have been looted down to the last candywrapper, and the usual suspects are desperate to find some coin. *Any* coin.

I’ll say this. If America has facilitated this in any way in order to justify attacking Syria to install the damn MB, then America deserves what is going to result from that, whatever it may be.

If this line has been crossed by us, then there is no going back.

You can bet your ass that Obama's henchmen aided and abetted in this and are doing everything in their power to install the MB.

Also, I do not consider Obama voters, worshipers,or disciples to be American, nor do I associate anything pertaining to Obama as American. The two are, in my opinion, two different entities. Never the twain shall meet.

But they are.

Americans elected this man. Twice. Americans elected the house and senate who are refusing to hold him accountable and as far as I can see are complicit in everything that he does.

Yes, there are people that did not vote for this government, but it was elected nonetheless.

And if it is responsible for the unleashing of WMDs in order to justify its schemes, then God help us.

I still maintain that not the first American voted for the bastard either time. I also maintain that Americans have become, since 2008, a small minority. The majority are now comprised of American haters, parasites, and self hating Whites. The common thread running through them is their hatred for what America stands for. Sometimes Americans allow themselves to be deceived at election time. I to my shame voted for Mitt Romney, Rubio, McCain, Rick Scott, and Pam Bondi over the last few elections. It is a mistake I will not repeat.

Lol. The Sauds even had some delusions of a world currency of gold dinars to take over from the dollar. But as with so many who have been hoarding gold over the last few years, it all turned to dust. And not gold dust, either :).

Obama has been in a corner since January 2009.

It just took this long, unfortunately for the truth to be seen by the rest of the planet. He had NO BUSINESS WHATSOEVER pretending that he could lead the nation.

He just is not there, he's so far in over his head that he is the laughing stock of the world.

I cannot think of a more incompetent national leader, ever! He has beaten the old 1979 Carter record for single greatest imbecile ever elected to national office.

It is so painful to watch it play out on the world stage as Iran and Russia prepare Phase II for post-America.

Not doing this anymore. I have to be able to look myself in the mirror, and that is becoming harder for me these days as a citizen of this country.

We are not on the righteous path.

We are on a path in the opposite direction.

Thank you very much!!!!

The only thing that Ted Cruz did not get right is that the chemical weapons were probably deployed by the Al Qaeda “rebels”—not Assad!!!!

And we have more “human rightser” armchair mass-murderers hanging around this thing than those I mentioned, especially Samantha World Power and Hillary Rodham Izetbegovic Khomeini!!!!

(background information)

Walid Shoebat is a Palestinian American Christian who converted from Islam. A self-proclaimed ex-terrorist, he lectures on the dangers of Islamic radicalism and is a strong supporter of the state of Israel. Born to a Jordanian Muslim father and a American mother, Shoebat lived during the early part of his life in the village of Beit Sahour, near Bethlehem.

A self-proclaimed apostate Muslim, he says that he converted to Christianity in 1993 and began to spread the word about the dangers of Islam. He has been interviewed as a terrorism expert on several television programs, including a handful of appearances on CNN and its sister network, HLN, in 2006 and 2007. Critics have questioned his alleged PLO affiliations, which he cites as the grounds for his authority on the subject of militant Islam.

Shoebat is also a frequent speaker at Biblical prophecy conferences comparing End Times eschatology in the Judeo-Christian and Islamic sacred texts.

Cruz made a good argument - common sense which seems to be lacking. But you are right, he asserted that Kerry’s claims about Assad were correct, so he did not dispute it.

He did mention (and so did Hannity) that there have been over 100,000 Syrians killed - not just in the chemical weapons attack.

He mentions national security and that we shouldn’t be arming rebels. Another focus should be preventing chemical weapons from falling into the wrong hands.

They also talk about toppling Assad and how the focus should be on keeping these weapons from the wrong hands as the focus. Cruz did not dispute the toppling of Assad, which is a bit concerning.

I tried to explain this when they went after Ghadaffi, but very few listened.
