جبهة النصرة تبايع زعيم القاعدة وتتنصل من اعلان دولة العراق الاسلامية

Read this story in English W460

اعلنت جبهة النصرة الاسلامية التي تقاتل ضد النظام السوري، مبايعتها اليوم الاربعاء زعيم تنظيم القاعدة ايمن الظواهري، متنصلة في الوقت نفسه من اعلان دولة العراق الاسلامية تبنيها والاندماج تحت راية واحدة.

وقال المسؤول العام للجبهة ابو محمد الجولاني في تسجيل صوتي بث عبر مواقع الكترونية "هذه بيعة من ابناء جبهة النصرة ومسؤولهم العام نجددها لشيخ الجهاد الشيخ ايمن الظواهري (...) فاننا نبايعه على السمع والطاعة".

لكن الجولاني اكد ان الجبهة لم تستشر في اعلان الفرع العراقي للتنظيم، تبنيها وتوحيد رايتهما تحت اسم "الدولة الاسلامية في العراق والشام".

وقال "دار حديث حول خطاب منسوب للشيخ ابي بكر البغدادي (زعيم دولة العراق الاسلامية) وذكر في الخطاب المنسوب للشيخ تبعية الجبهة لدولة العراق الاسلامية، ثم اعلن فيه الغاء اسم دولة العراق وجبهة النصرة، واستبدالهما باسم واحد".

اضاف "نحيط الناس علما ان قيادات الجبهة ومجلس شورتها والعبد الفقير (المسؤول العام لجبهة النصرة) (الجولاني)، لم يكونوا على علم بهذا الاعلان سوى ما سمعوه من وسائل الاعلام، فان كان الخطاب المنسوب حقيقة، فاننا لم نستشر ولم نستأمر".

وشدد الجولاني على ان الجبهة "ستبقى كما عهدتموها" بعد اعلان البيعة الذي "لن يغير شيئا في سياستها". اضاف "ستبقى راية الجبهة كما هي لا يغير فيها شيء"، مؤكدا في الوقت نفسه "اعتزاننا براية الدولة (الاسلامية في العراق) ومن حملها ومن ضحى ومن بذل من دمه من اخواننا تحت لوائها".

وكان البغدادي قال الثلاثاء في رسالة صوتية ان جبهة النصرة "ما هي الا امتداد لدولة العراق الاسلامية وجزء منها"، معلنا "الغاء اسم دولة العراق الاسلامية والغاء اسم جبهة النصرة وجمعهما تحت اسم واحد هو الدولة الاسلامية في العراق والشام".

LOL this sounds like a business article about 2 companies "merging". Which industry is FSA-Al Qaeda and Nusra Front a part of? The self-detonating, head-chopping, women and children slaughtering industry?

The US and Europe should openly Arm the FSA as counter balance on the ground and when the time comes to disarm Al Nusra or eliminate them all together...I think many Syrians that joined Al Nusra will quit after the butcher Assad is killed...

It would be quite hard to de-radicalize those that have joined al-Nusra once Assad falls.

FT, let me ask you this.

what do you think about nasrallah's speech about christians being occupiers that he made in the 80s. im sure you know which one im talking about. its widely used by M14ers to say look at how HA is not innocent.

now if i remember correctly your answer in another article, you talked about how it was the early days and different situation and HA has grown to learn to integrate and that they cannot eliminate any one group or sect.

my question here is: why is it not possible for the FSA, assuming it is all a one color terrorist group according to you, to grow over time and learn the same lessons HA did?

FT, you couldn't have answered that any better. Great points.

My only question is, you mention "If FSA initiates dialogue...", at this point dialogue is not in the hands of the FSA and the regime. The regime lost that trust, it lost that privilege. It lost that privilege when it was too stubborn to step down and allow for an interim government, and avoid the chaos in Syria today.

For all their faults and fragility, the opposition should undoubtedly lead the transitory government, simply because there is no better alternative (certainly not the regime).

well my point here is made. and i quote
"it IS possible for FSA to grow......."

"al NUSRA however...."

thus clearly stating that Nusra is not FSA, and FSA is a legitimate group of rebels who have taken up arms against a violent regime. maybe you didnt say it in so many words but the spirit is clear :p

ba3dein how many groups participated in the war in lebanon, with each their own agendas etc. no one came up on top, just like in lebanon, no sect or party was able to eliminate the other.

there is no reason for you to claim that nusra has taken over most of the rebellion. people imagine lebanon as a desert with camels and terrorists everywhere because of the media focus on these places that represent only a small percentage of the country. dont you think there is a similarity in the way you perceive FSA? im sure you are not in syria living and fighting on fronts etc to say you know for a fact or that you have seen with your eyes

@rudy

I think what FT means to say is (correct me if I'm wrong) that the FSA's allied stance with Al-Nusra delegitimizes it. The fact the FSA can stand up to Al-Nusra and doesn't reduces its moral position.

Still, I'm not sure what the FSA can do about al-Nusra. If it stands up and battles it, then it'll fragment the opposition and make it a less effective force in combatting the regime. Battling al-Nusra is probably what Assad wants, for the opposition will be fragmented and ineffective.

But if the FSA doesn't stand up to al-Nusra, then people will blast it for allying with terrorists. I think, as the FSA's spokesman said, that for the sake of battling the regime it'll have to tolerate al-Nusra, but once a new order is in place it will confront it.

agreed gcb

i dont think its a surprise to anyone that the basic human instinct is survival and a human will do anything it takes including selling his soul to the devil to survive.

faced with allowing nusra in to help or letting nusra do it alone, or option 3 being giving up and going back to square one after all the losses, it was clear what choice they had.

lol....the entire point of this revolution was to get rid of this piece of shite bashar, and now they are supposed to stop the war, start killing the people who are helping them in their original goal, just to make the guy they hate happy enough to give them a little piece of the pie, and let him stay in power!? hahahaha....yeah after all the blood and suffering and sacrifice I'm sure the syrian people would just love to do that.

united against nusra only?divided on everything else will it work?no...the only solution is:
1) state of lebanon
2)abolish the religious mazhabi regime,by kicking out all interference from religious leaders in civil politics
3)civil marriage , which is a , must condition , to solidify the civil life.

za2if. it is simpler than that. Think of salafists as a tool since they are purchasable mercenaries. Salafists are a tool that bachar used in nahr el bared and in Irak. And now these same salafists are being used against him by qatar. nothing more to it.

What I find strange is that Al Nusra is estimated to have over 10,000 fighters in Syria who are well armed and payed. Where are they getting all the money? It has to be a state like KSA. Even though Al Qaida has called for the overthrow of KSA, The Saudi regime are quietly sending large amount of money to go to the Jihadists so the battle is far away from KSA. The monarchy feels that they are the next Mubarek and all of their wealth will not save them. Unlike the small GCC countries they have a large poor population waiting to explode.

Again, it is in the interest of the pro western Arab dictators to turn the "Arab spring" into a Shiite/Sunni conflict.

Missing bigjohn 23:39 ,2013 نيسان 10

There are thousands of foreign Jihadists in Syria who are not part Al Qaida. There are thousands of Syrian who have joined Al Nusra front. You can not easily separate the Syrians from the foreigners.

Too much garbage in the landfields. It is time to get rid of the filth, scum and cancer so the rest of can live our lives, breath the clean air, and cultivate the soil for a better future. Ironic to hear Wahabi/Al-Qaida or filthy Persian types, sympathizers, supporters think they are better than Israelis. They're all the same and deserve each other. The rest of us don't need them.
