'The War on Terror' Is a Farce

The NATO attack on Libya tore away most of the covering, but the present proxy war of NATO/Israel/the U.S. against Syria has fully revealed the lie that is The War on Terror.  The coordination of Western countries and Al-Qaeda Syrian rebels against Assad's government shows what a sham this War really is.

'Israel’s airstrike on Syria was timed to precede an Al-Qaeda-led rebel offensive against President Bashar Al-Assad’s forces according to Egyptian and Jordanian intelligence sources, underscoring once again how jihadists are doing the dirty work of the very powers they claim to oppose.

'. . .

'As we highlighted yesterday, Israel and the United States routinely rely on Al-Qaeda to destabilize their enemies in the region.

'Not only has Israel supported Al-Qaeda-led rebels in Syria, even setting up field hospitals for injured fighters, but back in 2002 Israel was caught actually creating an Al-Qaeda group in order to justify attacks on Palestinians in the Gaza Strip.

'The United States and Israel have also armed and funded Al-Qaeda-affiliated groups in Iran to carry out bombings and assassinations for years.

'NATO powers also openly armed and funded the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Libyan Islamic FIghting Group to topple Colonel Gaddafi in 2011.

'It was also recently revealed that the State Department hired Al-Qaeda-linked militants to “defend” the diplomatic mission in Benghazi that was later attacked.'

'Near the city of Aleppo, armed terrorists have kidnapped the Antiochian Orthodox Metropolitan Boulos (Paul) al-Yazigi of Aleppo and Iskanderun and a Syriac Metropolitan Ibrahim. . . .

'This event is a challenge to Western countries, especially the USA, Great Britain and France. In camps in Turkey and the Jordan they are training, financing and arming the Sunni Islamist terrorists of 22 different nations who are operating in the war against Syria. Now that the Patriarch’s brother has been kidnapped (and is probably being held to ransom), will the West retract its support for Al-Qaida terrorism and support the native Christians of the Middle East?'

Rejecting The War on Terror does not mean that Muslims must therefore be embraced as model citizens of the world.  So long as they hold to the violent teachings of Muhammad in the hadiths, etc. they should be viewed with a wary eye.

But it does mean this - the next time a power-hungry demagogue like Sen Graham, Sen McCain, or Pres Obama, or a neocon, Washington, D.C.,-idolizer like Hannity or Limbaugh, calls for the bombing or invasion of another country 'because Al-Qaeda is there', our response should not be an exclamation: 'Go get 'em!' but a question: 'Who put them there, and why?'

Afterword:  Keep all of this mind also whenever you are asked (or told) to give up this freedom or that to prevent Al-Qaeda attacks here at home.
