In a diplomatic shift, President Obama said today his administration now formally recognizes the newly-formed, leading coalition of Syrian rebels who are fighting to topple Syria’s embattled President Bashar Assad.

“We’ve made a decision that the Syrian Opposition Coalition is now inclusive enough, is reflective and representative enough of the Syrian population that we consider them the legitimate representative of the Syrian people in opposition to the Assad regime,” Obama said.

Well ,now that they have killed all the Christians then I guess the remainder is inclusive. Other than those who support the current regime of course.

Here is a link to the infamous clip of muslim anti Asaad fighters letting or making a child behead a prisoner. Here is a link to a Christian village wiped out, the Christians “slaughtered like animals”. So I guess these guys weren’t included. The rest of the article can be read here.

  1. So, Obama has now successfully eliminated all (more or less) secular or moderately muslim regimes in favour of murderous islamist sharia fanatic totalitarian gangs. Just waiting now for him to replace the Knesset with HAMAS.

    I feel sick.

  3. Obama and the left want the Caliphate to be reformed, and will stop at nothing to achieve this goal. Their actions are going to cost the lives of a lot of people as we fight to remain free.

  4. Syrian opposition urges U.S. review of al-Nusra blacklisting

    The leader of Syria’s opposition coalition urged the United States on Wednesday to review its decision to designate the militant Islamist Jabhat al-Nusra as a terrorist group, saying religion was a legitimate motive for Syrian rebels.

    “The decision to consider a party that is fighting the regime as a terrorist party needs to be reviewed,” Mouaz Alkhatib told a “Friends of Syria” meeting in Morocco, where Western and Arab states granted full recognition to the coalition seeking to oust President Bashar al-Assad.

    “We might disagree with some parties and their ideas and their political and ideological vision. But we affirm that all the guns of the rebels are aimed at overthrowing the tyrannical criminal regime.”

    The United States designated the Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front) as a foreign terrorist organization and said it was trying to hijack the revolt on behalf of al Qaeda in Iraq.

    The decision to blacklist al-Nusra, an important fighting force in the uprising, has already triggered criticism from the powerful Syrian Muslim Brotherhood. A senior Brotherhood official said it was wrong and hasty.

    Alkhatib said it was “no shame” if Syrian rebels were driven by religious motives to topple Assad. “Religion that does not liberate its people, and does not eliminate repression, is not authentic religion,” he said.

    “The fact that the military movement is Islamic in its color is generally positive. Jihad in the path of God, has long been a fundamental motivator for human rights.”

    “Al Sham” refers to Syria :

    from wiki : “Bilad al-Sham” article :


    The term etymologically means “land of the left hand”, referring to the fact that for someone in the Hejaz facing east, north is to the left (so the name Yemen correspondingly means “land of the right hand”). Sham comes from the Arabic consonantal root shin-hamza-mim ? ? ? (referring to unluckiness, such as that traditionally associated with the left), as seen in alternative Arabic spellings such as ??? and ???. There is no connection with the name of Shem son of Noah (which appears in Arabic as sam ???, with a different initial consonant, and without any internal glottal stop consonant), as is sometimes assumed.
