Jacobin France started something it will probably come to regret in the coming years.
Providing practical support and encouragement to a plague of foreign terrorists sent to Syria has repercussions when it all goes pear-shaped and those terrorists find their way to France (and other countries that fund and train them).
The Turkish military, the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda and Daesh – all now openly fight in Syria under the same flag, worn as arm-patches by Salafist terrorists and Turkish soldiers alike.
Their much-stated objective is to invade and impose a Neo-Ottoman and Salafist Empire throughout the Levant, Europe, Africa and Asia.
Alexandre Goodarzy, the French Head of Mission of SOS Chrétien d’Orient in Syria for the past four 4 years, has wondered why the Western media had not woken up when the Turkish regime occupied Afrin and Jarablus areas in the north of Syria and when it supported terrorist groups against the Syrian State?
He told the Syria Times: “Why do the western countries stand by the separatist Kurdish militias in Syria? These militias, mainly PKK and YPG, have been internationally designated as terrorist groups. i.e. why does the West support the Kurds when it puts them on the international terrorist list?
“We in the west have to reconsider our alliances. Our governments have to face the stupid actions they made in the past,” Goodarzy added, referring to the fact that the Kurdish militias in Syria have betrayed the Syrian government and people.
“When the war started in Syria in 2011, the Syrian state gave weapons to the Kurdish groups to defend Syria in the north of the country as the Syrian army had to fight terrorist groups in a lot flashpoint areas , but what happened is that the Kurds used the weapons against the Syrian army and people,” he asserted.
Goodarzy went on to say: “I know that for Syria all Syrian people are united and Kurdish people are part of the Syrian people. Yes, this is exactly the case when we are speaking about the people. but these military and political militias have taken advantage of the situation since the beginning of the war on Syria.”
He affirmed that the separatist Kurdish militias have practiced suppressive and savage acts against citizens, who contradict their agenda. “For example, they kidnapped many Syrian Christians in Qameshli and forced them to join the fight alongside YPG. This move came within other measures adopted by those militias against the Syrian Christians in the northeast of Syria because of their loyalty to the Syrian state.”
Now, the population, who has suffered from the brutal practices of the separatist Kurdish militias, are suffering from the Turkish attack and may be tomorrow they will suffer under ISIS because Kurds are telling everybody that they are not able to contain the jail where they have put the members of ISIS.
“What does this mean? Is it a threat?? Are those Kurdish militias saying: if you are not supporting us any more, and if you are letting us down in front of the Turks, we are going to liberate all ISIS prisoners? This is a real problem! And this for us in the western countries is a cruel reality and shows the lies and the bad alliances that we have done in the past,” Goodarzy concluded.
“Mhardeh locals took to the streets of the city to celebrate the Syrian army’s victory over terrorist organisations in the northern countryside of Hama. These organisations used to target innocent people in the city and its vicinity with rockets on a daily basis only because they support their army and leadership.
The locals expressed their happiness at getting rid of terrorist attacks, stressing their full support for the Syrian army in bringing back safety and security to the entire Syrian territory.
Over the past eight years, Mhardeh city has been a story of steadfastness and resistance against terrorism. Its people never gave up or left their lands and homes despite daily terror attacks by terrorist groups, as they were confident that the Syrian army will come to rid them of terrorism”
Gearóid Ó Colmáin argues that “Sri Lanka’s Catholics are leading the fight against globalisation. It is in this context that one should view the recent terrorist attacks.”
You can’t fight something with nothing
Why is Europe unable to defend its people against terrorism?
This question is becoming increasingly urgent to growing numbers of Europeans, especially after the terrorist attack in Brussels. Despite massive surveillance and armed guards, terrorists succeeded in striking yet again. The reaction from media and authorities followed the same old template as the display of stunned impotence applied to the Paris attacks. Politicians and experts condemn, explain and analyse – without a shred of sensible response – the fact that radical groups in the West are growing. Voices – like Michael Hayden, former head of the CIA and NSA – clamour for even more surveillance and powers for intelligence agencies, while politicians call for initiatives to take pedagogical measures to soften radicalism. This crescendo will grow to a withering cacophony until the next attack springs its deadly surprise, with mayhem and new floods of inane infotainment news.
This predictable pattern leaves many Europeans with the distinct impression that politicians and police are incapable of protecting their populations against terrorism.
Why do public authorities fall so pathetically short?
Terrorism has no borders and requires unifying all international genuine efforts to overcome it. Combating terrorism is not Syria’s fight alone; the international community should cooperate with Syria as terrorism is considered an ideological tool in the wars that erupted in the Middle East.
