The Rise and Fall of ISIS صعود وسقوط داعش

August 10, 2019

by Ghassan Kadi for The Saker Blog

A year or two ago, I would have never imagined that I would be writing an article with this title, at least not this soon; but things change.

If anything, my previous articles about ISIS which I wrote back between 2014 and 2017 were very alarming and predicted the worst, but again, things change, and back then there were many reasons to feel alarmed.

I have reiterated in that era of the past that the ISIS ideology had deep roots in fundamentalist Islam, and I still have this view. I have professed many times that this fundamentalist doctrine had been in place long before Christopher Columbus set a foot on American soil and that we cannot blame the CIA, Israel, the UK, or the West in general for the creation of this ideology, and I am not retracting. I have also said that those fundamentalist views do not represent real Islam, and there is no change in heart on this aspect either. So what has changed?

In this context, we are talking about the ideological rise and fall of ISIS. We are not talking about the political aspects and the horde of players who helped create, manipulate and employ ISIS for different reasons and agendas. With all of those players however, ISIS needed the support base, and that support base was the Muslim youth who are disenchanted by world events and the manner the world views Islam. Furthermore, they are disgruntled by the governments of the Muslims World and their links to the West: links they consider as treasonous and shameful. It was this mindset that was the recruitment base for ISIS; not the Pentagon.

So for the benefit of clarification, I must herein emphasize that there has always been a perverted version of Islam that founded itself on violence; in total contradiction to the Quranic teachings that clearly forbid coercion and oppression. This version was finally committed to a written doctrine, written by Ibn Taymiyyah; the founding doctrine of the Wahhabi Saudi sect.

When the West “discovered” this doctrine, it tried to employ it to its advantage, and this was how Al-Qaeda and ISIS were created, with Al-Qaeda’s role to hurt the USSR in Afghanistan, and ISIS to topple the legitimate and secular Syrian Government.

The not so funny thing about ISIS was that when the proclamation of creating the Islamist state back in mid-2014, the Caliphate passion became something easy to grow and self-nurture in the hearts and minds of many Sunni Muslims across the globe; including moderate ones.

Harking back at what happened back then; one honestly cannot blame them much. After all, many of the then Iraqi ISIS commanders and fighters were former Saddam-era Iraqi Army personnel. Many of them have even actually walked away from the “dictator” in the hope that the “regime change” was going to be for the better, only to soon realize the state of mess and mayhem that the American invasion created.

Before ISIS “had the chance” to show its ugly face, may moderate Muslims thought that this new force emerging out of Mesopotamia, one that does not recognize the border lines that Western colonialists have drawn between Sham (Syria) and Iraq, one that wants to unite Muslims, is perhaps “the one” to go for and support.

Ironically, most of those Muslims today look back at those days and either forget or wish to forget that at one stage, at some level, deep down in their hearts they supported ISIS, albeit not fully knowing what it stood for.

It was this subtle and covert support for ISIS by some elements of the global Sunni rank-and-file that gave ISIS a fertile ground for luring in recruits and that was the major cause for concern.

If anyone looks for evidence that supports this statement, then he/she need not go further than looking at the recent history of terror attacks in the EU (especially France) and the UK.

After the horrendous Bastille Day attack in Nice in the summer of 2016, a new direction for terror was established, and the perpetrator proved that one does not need a weapon to kill. His weapon was a truck, and he didn’t even need to buy it. He rented it.

After this infamous attack and what followed it, I among many others, predicted more of such events, and they continued for a while, and then suddenly they stopped. Why? This is the question.

For ISIS to be have been able to keep its momentum and growing support base, it needed to gain the hearts and minds of Muslims. But to do so, it needed to score victories and be able to revive Muslim nostalgia. Both are equally important.

In the beginning, it boasted its victories and the biggest of which was the takeover of Mosul; Iraq’s second largest city. This was how the ears of many Muslims worldwide pricked up and poised themselves to hear more. Some jumped on the band wagon straight away, but the majority braced and waited for more evidence that ISIS in general, and Baghdadi in specific, are the right ones to trust and follow.

What followed the capture of Mosul by ISIS however was nothing short of disgrace for ISIS; one that exposed its true inner ugliness. And instead of being able to capitalize on its initial momentum and promising to achieve more of it by adopting at least some of the virtues of Islam, ISIS turned its inability to achieve further military victories into a blood bath, looting and a sex slave market.

Before too long, even some of the most ardent Muslim supporters of ISIS turned away from it, and then against it, to the degree that they now even forget or deny that they once supported its baby steps.

What is interesting to note is that the move from secularism to Islam has not changed in the Muslim world. An increasing number of Muslim girls are wearing the Hijab with or without ISIS, but ISIS itself has lost its sway with the general Sunni Muslim populace.

What is interesting to see is that the definition of what is a “real Muslim” is changing, and changing quickly. And whilst the move towards Hijab and all what comes with it is still going full steam ahead, there seems to be a growing trend in the Muslim World towards moderation.

The ISIS fundamentals of black and white doctrine seem to be becoming increasingly tolerant of certain shades of grey. Even some personal Facebook friends and friends of friends who have brandished their photos performing Pilgrimage at Mecca don’t seem to be at dis-ease posting other photos brandishing a Heineken. To someone outside the Muslim Faith this may not sound like a big deal, but in reality, it is.

This all sounds good, but what has happened here really?

ISIS has definitely lost the plot. Fortunately for the world, irrespective of who are/were the people “behind” ISIS, its recruitment base had to come from Muslims; especially the youth. Having lost the ability to draw more recruits and enthusiasts who pledge their actions and lives to Baghdadi without even having to be formal ISIS members, ISIS as an organization and a name is now a spent force, and dare I say a figment of the past.

This however does not mean that the Muslim community has “immunized” itself against potential new ISIS-like organizations and agendas.

The initial rise of ISIS could have well been the result of a nostalgic remnant of a certain belief system that many Muslims did not even want to investigate and study properly to see if it really and truly conforms with the Teachings of Islam and all other religions. The fall of ISIS however heralds a new unprecedented era in the Muslim mind, and this calls for great optimism.

Perhaps for the first time in the history of Islam ever since its inception, Muslims are now beginning to examine some teachings they inherited. Even Saudi Arabia and its infamous Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman (MBS) seem to be sick and tired of the old rules and dogmas that allow this and prohibit that; based on no foundation at all. I have never been a fan of MBS, but having lived in Saudi Arabia for a while, I had always thought that this country would never allow women to drive, never ever. The fact that he changed this is a great step in the right direction. This does not take away from MBS’s genocidal activities in Yemen of course, but on the dogmatic side of things, this is a huge step towards reform. In Saudi Arabia there is also a call to have a second take on the Hadith (the spoken word of Prophet Mohamed) in an attempt to identify certain teachings that promote violence and that are incompatible with Islam. The rationale behind this is that they were never the words of the Prophet to begin with and that they might have been injected into the huge discourse by others with political agendas. Such an initiative was totally unfathomable only up till a few years ago.

Does this mean that we are seeing the end of Muslim fundamentalist-based violence? Hopefully we are, but the real answer to this question is for the whole Muslim community to answer.

The truth is that ISIS may be done and dusted, but the ideology behind lives on.

It is hoped for that the actions of ISIS will be remembered for eternity. It is hoped that Muslims realize that if they truly want to pursue the fundamentalist dreams of conquest and world dominion, then they cannot distance themselves from the legacy of ISIS. It is hoped that they look forward to a new world that is open to all religions and doctrines.

I am a firm believer that God created man in His own image, and part of this image is goodness and love of goodness; and Muslims are part of this creation. After all, Muslims, all Muslims believe in the Hadith that says: “The best people are those who most benefit to other people”. Russia and Syria might have won the military war on ISIS, but it is Muslims who have won the spiritual fight. Muslims: 1, ISIS: 0.

صعود وسقوط داعش

غسان كادي

 ، لم أكن أتخيل منذ عام أو عامين أبداً أنني سأكتب مقالًا بهذا العنوان؛

في ذلك الوقت كانت هناك أسباب كثيرة للشعور بالقلق، لكن الأمور تتغير.

في مقالاتي السابقة حول داعش التي كتبت في الفترة ما بين 2014 و 2017 كانت مقلقة للغاية وتوقعت الأسوأ ،  لكن الأمور تغيرت .

في تلك الحقبة الماضية كررت أن أيديولوجية داعش لها جذور عميقة في الإسلام الأصولي ،وقلت أيضًا أن تلك الآراء الأصولية لا تمثل الإسلام الحقيقي ولا يزال لدي هذا الرأي. فالعقيدة الأصولية كانت موجودة قبل فترة طويلة من اكتشاف الأرض الأمريكية وعليه لا يمكننا اتهام وكالة الاستخبارات المركزية أو إسرائيل أو المملكة المتحدة أو الغرب عمومًا بإنشاء هذه الأيديولوجية، وأنا هنا لا أتراجع. إذن ما الذي تغير؟

 في هذا السياق، نتحدث عن الصعود ولسقوط الأيديولوجي لداعش، ولا نتحدث عن الجوانب السياسية واللاعبين الذين ساعدوا في إنشاء وتوظيفها لأسباب وجداول أعمال مختلفة. لأنه مع توفر كل هؤلاء اللاعبين، كانت داعش بحاجه إلى بيئة حاضنة وقاعدة الدعم، وكانت البيئة الحاضنة وقاعدة الدعم هي الشباب المسلم المحبط بالأحداث العالمية والطريقة التي ينظر بها العالم إلى الإسلام والاستياء من حكومات العالم الإسلامي وروابطهم الخائنة والمخزية بالغرب. هذا الاحباط والاستياء مكن البنتاغون من التوظيف السياسي لداعش.

لذلك لا بد أن أشدد هنا على الوجود الدائمً لنسخة منحرفة من الإسلام تأسست على العنف ؛ في تناقض تام مع التعاليم القرآنية التي تمنع بوضوح الإكراه والقمع. نسخة كتبها ابن تيمية ؛ العقيدة المؤسسة للطائفة الوهابية السعودية.

عندما “اكتشف” الغرب هذه العقيدة المنحرفة، حاول أن يوظفها لصالحه ، وهكذا تم إنشاء القاعدة وداعش، القاعدة لإلحاق الأذى بالاتحاد السوفيتي في أفغانستان، وداعش لإسقاط الشرعية والعلمانية الحكومة السورية.

 لا شك ان إعلان داعش عن إنشاء الدولة الإسلامية في منتصف عام 2014 ، أيقظ الحنين والأمل بعودة الخلافة في  قلوب وعقول العديد من المسلمين السنة في جميع أنحاء العالم ؛ بما في ذلك المعتدلين. وبصراحة لا يمكن إلقاء اللوم عليهم كثيرا. بعد كل شيء ، فإن العديد من قادة ومقاتلي داعش العراقيين كانوا في السابق من أفراد الجيش العراقي في عهد صدام. لقد ابتعد كثير منهم عن “الديكتاتور” على أمل أن يتم “تغيير النظام” للأفضل ، لكنهم انضموا لداعش يسبب حالة الفوضى التي أحدثها الغزو الأمريكي.

قبل أن تظهر داعش وجهها القبيح ، ربما اعتقد المسلمون المعتدلون أن هذه القوة الجديدة الخارجة من بلاد ما بين النهرين ، والتي لا تعترف بالحدود التي رسمها المستعمرون الغربيون بين الشام (سوريا) والعراق ، هي القوة التي تستطيع توحيد المسلمين، والتي يجب دعمها .

ومن المفارقات، أن معظم هؤلاء المسلمين عندما ينظرون اليوم إلى الوراء، إما ينسون أو يودون أن ينسوا أنهم في مرحلة ما، في أعماق قلوبهم، أيدوا داعش ، وإن كانوا لا يعرفون تمامًا معنى ذلك.

هذا الدعم الخفي والسري لداعش من قبل بعض التيار السني العالمي هو الذي أعطى داعش أرضية خصبة لجذب المجندين وكان ذلك هو السبب الرئيسي للقلق.

إذا كان أي شخص يبحث عن أدلة تدعم هذه المقولة، فلن يحتاج الا إلى أبعد النظر في الهجمات الإرهابية في الاتحاد الأوروبي (وخاصة فرنسا) والمملكة المتحدة.

في الهجوم المروع الذي وقع يوم الباستيل في نيس في صيف عام 2016 ، أثبت مرتكب الجريمة أنه لا يحتاج إلى سلاح ليقتل. كان سلاحه شاحنة ، ولم يكن بحاجة لشرائها. فقد استأجرها.

وبعد هذا الهجوم المشين وما تلاه ، توقعت من بين أشياء كثيرة أخرى حدوث المزيد من هذه الأحداث ، التي استمرت لفترة، ثم توقفت فجأة.

لماذا ا؟ هذا هو السؤال.

لتتمكن داعش من الحفاظ على دعم بيئتها الحاضنة المتنامية ، كانت تحتاج إلى كسب قلوب وعقول المسلمين. وللقيام بذلك ، كان من الضروري تسجيل الانتصارات لإحياء حنين المسلمين للخلافة.

في البداية ، تفاخرت داعش بانتصاراتها وكان أكبرها الاستيلاء على الموصل. ثاني أكبر مدن العراق. وهكذا أصبحت آذان العديد من المسلمين في جميع أنحاء العالم تستعد وتهيئ نفسها لسماع المزيد. قفز البعض على عربة داعش مباشرة ، لكن الغالبية استعدت وانتظرت للحصول على مزيد من الأدلة على أن داعش بشكل عام ، والبغدادي على وجه الخصوص ، هما الشخصان المناسبان للثقة والمتابعة.

لكن ما أعقب استيلاء داعش على الموصل لم يكن أقل من وصمة عار كشفت عن قبحها الداخلي الحقيقي. وبدلاً من أن تتمكن داعش من الاستفادة من زخم انتصارها الأول ووعدها بتحقيق المزيد من ذلك من خلال ابراز من فضائل الإسلام على الأقل ، حوّلت داعش عجزها عن تحقيق المزيد من الانتصارات العسكرية إلى حمام دم ونهب وسوق للاسعباد الجنسي.

قبل مضي وقت طويل ، حتى ابتعد بعض أكثر المؤيدين الإسلاميين المتحمسين لداعش عنها ، ثم تحولوا  ضدها ، لدرجة أنهم الآن نسوا أو أنكروا أنهم أيدوا ذات مرة خطواتها الاولى .

 ما يثير الاهتمام هو ان فقدان داعش سيطرتها على عامة المسلمين السنة لم ينعكس على عملية الانتقال من  العلمانية إلى الإسلام لم يتغير في العالم الإسلامي. فعدد يرتدي عدد الفتيات المسلمات المحجبات يزداد

وما يثير الاهتمام هو أن تعريف “المسلم الحقيقي” يتغير ويتغير بسرعة. وبينما لا يزال ارتداء الحجاب وكل ما يأتي معه في تزايد ، يبدو أن هناك اتجاهًا متزايدًا في العالم الإسلامي نحو الاعتدال.

يبدو أن أساسيات مذهب داعش الأسود والأبيض أصبحت أكثر تسامحًا مع بعض ظلال الرمادي. حتى بعض الأصدقاء الشخصيين على وأصدقاء الأصدقاء قاموا بتلوين صورهم وهم يؤدون رحلة الحج في مكة المكرمة ،و لا يبدو أنهم لا يرغبون في نشر صور أخرى تحمل علامة هاينكن. بالنسبة لشخص من خارج الديانة الإسلامية ، قد لا يبدو هذا أمرًا كبيرًا ، لكنه في الواقع كذلك.

كل هذا يبدو جيدا ، ولكن ما حدث هنا حقا؟

بالتأكيد فقد فشلت مؤامرة داعش لحسن الحظ بالنسبة للعالم ، وبغض النظر عمن يكون / كان “وراء” تنظيم “داعش” ، كان المسلمين خاصة الشباب قاعدة التجنيد؛ فقدت داعش القدرة على جذب المزيد من المجندين والمتحمسين الذين نذروا أفعالهم وحياتهم للبغدادي دون الحاجة حتى إلى أن يكونوا أعضاء رسميين ، وأصبحت  داعش كمنظمة واسم الآن قوة مستهلكة ، وأتجرأ على القول، صورة من الماضي

لكن هذا لا يعني أن المجتمع المسلم “قام بتحصين” نفسه ضد المنظمات وجداول الأعمال المحتملة الجديدة المشابهة لداعش.

كان من الممكن أن يكون الصعود الأول لداعش هو  بقايا حنين لنظام معتقد معين لم يرغب الكثير من المسلمين حتى في دراسته بشكل صحيح لمعرفة ما إذا كان يتوافق حقًا مع تعاليم الإسلام وجميع الأديان الأخرى. لكن سقوط داعش يبشر بعهد جديد لم يسبق له مثيل في العقل الإسلامي ، وهذا يستدعي تفاؤلًا كبيرًا.

ربما لأول مرة في تاريخ الإسلام منذ نشأته ، بدأ المسلمون الآن في دراسة بعض التعاليم التي ورثوها. حتى في المملكة العربية السعودية وولي العهد السعودي الأمير محمد بن سلمان  يبدو أنهما سئموا من القواعد والعقائد القديمة التي تسمح بهذا وتحظر ذلك ؛ بدون أي أساس على الإطلاق.

لم أكن من عشاق محمد بن سلمان، ولكني كنت أعيش في المملكة العربية السعودية لفترة من الوقت ، وكنت أظن دائمًا أن هذا البلد لن يسمح أبدًا للنساء بقيادة السيارات، لكن هذا حدث وهو خطوة كبيرة في الاتجاه الصحيح و خطوة كبيرة نحو الإصلاح يجب ان لا تنسينا الإبادة الجماعية التي تقوم بها السعودية في اليمن بالطبع.

في المملكة العربية السعودية ، هناك أيضًا دعوة لإعادة النظر في الحديث (الكلمة المنطوقة للنبي محمد) في محاولة لتحديد التعاليم المنسوبة للنبي التي تروج للعنف والتي تتعارض مع االقرآن واعتبارها احاديث منحولة تم حقنها من قبل الآخرين لتبرير اجندات سياسية. مثل هذه المبادرة لم تكن ممكنة على الإطلاق قبل بضع سنوات.

هل هذا يعني أننا نشهد نهاية للعنف الإسلامي القائم على الأصولية؟ نأمل أن نكون ، لكن الإجابة الحقيقية على هذا السؤال هي برسم المجتمع المسلم بأسره.

والحقيقة هي أن داعش يقد هزمت ولكن الأيديولوجية الكامنة ورائها ما زالت مستمرة.

من المأمول أن يتذكر  المسلمون أفعال داعش إلى الأبد وأن يلفظوا إرث تنظيم الدولة الإسلامية وأحلامها الأصولية المتمثلة في الفتح والسيطرة على العالم ، من المأمول أن يتطلعوا إلى عالم جديد مفتوح لجميع الأديان والمذاهب.

أنا من أشد المؤمنين أن الله خلق الإنسان على صورته ، وجزء من هذه الصورة هو الخير ومحبة الخير ؛ والمسلمون جزء من هذا الخلق. بعد كل شيء ، المسلمون ، جميع المسلمين يؤمنون بالحديث الذي يقول:  “خير ا النَّاس انفعهم ” للنَّاس

ربما تكون روسيا وسوريا قد ربحت الحرب العسكرية على داعش ، ولكن المسلمين هم الذين فازوا في المعركة الروحية. المسلمون: 1 ، داعش: 0.

كيف تقتل سورية مشروع التقسيم .. أمام عيني أمه أميريكا؟؟

كيف تقتل سورية مشروع التقسيم .. أمام عيني أمه أميريكا؟؟

بقلم نارام سرجون

لاتستهويني في الحياة الا أسرار الأسرار التي تشبه الصور الضوئية التي ان خرجت للضوء قبل معالجتها في الغرف المظلمة احترقت .. ومن طبيعة الأسرار أنها تشبه الأجنة في الارحام .. نتابعها تنمو وتكبر ولكننا لانصل اليها ولانراها و ننتظر خروجها لنتأمل ملامحها .. وان خرجت في غير مواعيدها ماتت ..

لكن هذه حرب لاتشبه غيرها من الحروب لأنها حرب ليست فيها أسرار .. فالعدو واضح جدا .. والنوايا واضحة جدا .. وما ينشر من وثائق ويقال في الخطب يفوق في خطورته مايكتب عليه أنه سري للغاية .. ظاهرها هو أكذب مافيها وباطنها هو أصدق مافيها .. وطاهرها أقذر مافيها .. فليست الحرية ولاقضية الانسان هي هدف أي من القادمين بالثورة .. بل كل مافيها حرب متعلقة بخطوط الطاقة وخطوط النفوذ ومنصات السيطرة على مفاتيح القرن الحالي وقضم الجغرافيا والتهام خطوطها .. وتقسيم الدماء والأديان والأوطان الى شظايا ..

ولكن هل نستطيع أن نقول بثقة الآن بأن المشروع الأميريكي لخلق الشرق الأوسط الجديد قد تعرض لهزيمة كبيرة .. أو هل صار مشروع التقسيم غير قابل للحياة؟؟ اذا فشل مشروع الشرق الأوسط الجديد فان هذا يعني أن التقسيم هو الذي قصم ظهره .. لأنه لشرق أوسط جديد من دون دويلات جديدة وتقسيم للجغرافيا ..

المعطيات كلها تقول بان الشرق الأوسط الجديد لن يولد وأن هذا الجنين الذي زرعته أميريكا في بطن الثورة السورية لتحمله كالأم وتغذيه من مشيمتها يموت في بطن أمه .. وتموت معه خطوط التقسيم التي بشرتنا بها كل الخطب والمعاهد والسياسيين ..

علينا أن ندرك داعش هو قلب الثورة وعصبها الذي تراهن على ثباته مهما قيل انها تتناقض معه لأن المعارضة السورية وبعد الأخذ بنصيحة روبرت فورد اقتنعت بأن تلجأ الى قهر الدولة السورية بمخالب داعش .. فورد في لقاءاته مع المعارضين السوريين كان يقول بان النظام شرس للغاية ولايمكن قهره الا بخلق قوة اكثر شراسة منه وتتفوق عليه في قوة الرعب .. ولذلك فان داعش السورية هي نسخة أنتجتها المعارضة السورية مع المخابرات الغربية والتركية والسعودية وهي مأخوذة من النموذج العراقي أو لنقل بأن المعارضة السورية وحلفاءها استدعت داعش من العراق أو فتحت لها الأبواب سرا (بنصيحة غالية من روبرت فورد) للانضمام الى جهود الثورة السورية العسكرية .. والمعارضة تعلم ان خبرات داعش عالية جدا وفيها خيرة النخب العسكرية للعهد السابق في العراق والتي أعيدت ادلجتها مذهبيا بعد الصدمة النفسية لسقوط بغداد الذي عزي للمؤامرة التي تورطت فيها المعارضة “الشيعية” .. فكانت داعش مبرمجة بعد ذلك لاستهداف النقيض المذهبي لها .. وقبلت المعارضة السورية العرض بتدخل داعش العراقية في الحرب السورية وفق منظورها المذهبي وأنتجت منها معادلة التلاقي بأن المعارضة السورية سنية وسترد بالمثل على جريمة المعارضة العراقية الشيعية .. وكان لابد ان تلتقي المعارضة السورية التي أخذت دور المعارضة العراقية في شقها الشيعي تماما في التحالف مغ الغرب واستنساخ عملية اسقاط البعث السوري كونه يمثل -برأيها – نقطة الثأر الكبرى الجاذبة للجمهور السني الحانق لأنه يشكل نقيضا مذهبيا للمعارضة السورية تماما كما فعلت المعارضة العراقية في استدعاء المزاج المذهبي الشيعي ضد البعث العراقي الذي مثله الرئيس صدام حسين ومجموعته ..

لذلك فان قوة التقسيم والتمزيق للخريطة السورية كانت تتركز في داعش لأن صناع الثورة كانوا يراهنون على قوة داعش في دعم مشروع التقسيم لأن مشروع التقسيم الكبير هو ما كلفت به داعش باطلاقه بعد فشل اطلاقه من وسط سورية بحرب طائفية في حمص (بابا عمرو) .. ومنحت كل التسهيلات لها عبر فتح أسواق النفط والتجارة عبر تركيا واسرائيل .. وكان من الواضح أن هناك تنسيقا ميدانيا عاليا بين داعش والنصرة وأن هناك تقاسما وتناوبا على الجبهات بينهما مهما قيل عن حالة صراع مزعوم .. فقد اقتطع كل تنظيم جغرافيته وشعبه وموارده ونقاط حدوده ونوافذه وبدا في عملية الانعزال عن الآخر والاستقلال والدفاع عن مكاسبه ضد الآخر وتكفيره دون محاولة تدمير الخصم .. وكان هذا مايلفت النظر في أن التنظيمين فيهما كل مايجمع ويتوافقان في الرايات والأهداف والمنطق والطريقة ولكن مع هذا كانا ينفصلان جغرافيا وسياسيا في حين كان كل واحد منهما يقوم بتسهيل عمل الآخر عسكريا .. فكلما تقدم الجيش السوري على حساب النصرة تحركت داعش وضربت الجيش في وسط ظهره وبالعكس .. فبعد تحرير حلب تحركت داعش نحو تدمر وهددت حمص لأنه كان هناك اعتقاد أن الجيش سيتوجه الى ادلب حيث النصرة تخشى الهزيمة .. وكلما توجه تركيز الجيش نحو داعش تحركت النصرة للتخفيف عن داعش كما حصل عندما تحركت النصرة في حماة وجوبر وحركت الجبهات عندما ظهرت نية للجيش لمسابقة الاميريكيين نحو المنطقة الشرقية وتدمير خطوط داعش ..

ان داعش في الحقيقة هي قلب “الثورة السورية” ونجاح الثورة العسكري يعتمد على قوة داعش التي أظهرت بأسها في المنطقة الشرقية وعصفت بنقاط الجيش القوية .. وجميعنا نذكر جون كيري عندما قال بأن الاميريكيين يراقبون داعش وهي تتمدد نحو تهديد العاصمة دمشق لاجبار الأسد على التفاوض معنا .. وكان واضحا أن الغاية من خلق داعش على خط الفرات كان لمنحها حيزا جغرافيا واسعا في الصحراء بحيث تتولى المنطقة الشرقية الفاصلة بين سورية والعراق .. لكن لم يكن من المتوقع ان تتمكن داعش من السيطرة على اكثر من ذلك الفراغ الصحراوي لأن داعش لايقوى على التمدد كثيرا لاعتبارات متعلقة بامكاناته فهو لايملك الفائض العددي للانتشار الا في مدن الصحراء حيث الكثافة السكانية محدودة .. وهو لايملك الفائض العددي للتمدد نحو الداخل السوري الكثيف سكانيا حيث ستتولى النصرة هذا الأمر .. كما أن عملية الفصل الجغرافي والانفصال ضد رغبات السكان لاتقدر عليها الا منظمة فائقة الجريمة غنية بالعناصر الأجنبية التي لاتنتمي الى المجتمع المحلي وقوامها مهاجرون من أصقاع الأرض بحيث أنها تمارس الرعب والترهيب دون موانع قانونية لردع اي تمرد أو قوة رفض .. وبحيث يكون قرار التقسيم قائما بقوة الأمر الواقع ولاتدفعه قرارات دولية فتتجنب الدول الراعية لمشروع التقسيم الاحراج أو اللوم أو الاتهام المباشر بأنها ترعى التقسيم .. الذي يبدو انفصالا طبيعيا بقوة العنف الذي يفرض نفسه حتى وان بقيت داعش لسنوات طويلة منطقة خارج الشرعية الدولية وتعيش وكانها (مثلث برمودا) أو كيان شاذ عن النظام الدولي لايقبل الترويض ولايكبح جماحه ..

أما جبهة النصرة فانها تكمل مالاتقدر عليه داعش حيث تتولى عملية مشاغلة الجيش السوري ومنعه من الحشد ضد داعش .. وهي تنظيم مشابه لداعش لكن العنصر السوري فيه أكثر وضوحا وهو متغلغل في الريف السوري مما يسمح له بالاستناد الى حاضنة معقولة .. وهذا التنظيم كان يتم تحضيره كي يتحول الى كيان سياسي يمكن التفاوض معه بحيث يتم الاعتراف به دوليا ليحكم الجزء الغربي من سورية بعد تدمير الدولة السورية ولايخوض اي حرب تحرير مع داعش شرقا وبذلك يتم التقسيم شرقا وغربا ..بكيانين اسلاميين يتقاسمان النفوذ ويتبع كل منهما مرجعيته الخاصة وشرعيته .. وهذا ماسيؤدي بالساحل الى النضوج للانفصال والتفكك أوتوماتيكيا وقد يتبعه جبل العرب كنتيجة اجبارية .. وبذلك يكون التقسيم قد أنجز بفضل داعش والنصرة ..

وفي هذا المشروع لن يكون للأكراد حصة كبيرة في التقسيم وذلك لأن تركيا هي من يشرف على قوة الكيانين الاسلاميين اللذين يمحقان اي قوة كردية تفكر بالانفصال والابتعاد بكيان مستقل شمال سورية ..

وقد تمكنت الديبلوماسية الروسية والسورية من تفعيل الورقة الكردية ضد تركيا باعلان دستور قيل بأن روسيا اقترحته وفيه لم تتم الاشارة الى عروبة الجمهورية السورية وهو يعني عرضا شهيا للأكراد لايضاهيه اي عرض قدم لهم من قبل الأميريكيين الذين لم يقدروا على القول علنا بأنهم سيلجمون الأتراك ويمنعهونهم عن سحق الاحلام الكردية حيث أن من سيتصدر لهذا الدستور هو تركيا قبل أي طرف .. وطبعا تحاول اميريكا بالمقابل الاحتفاظ بالأكراد عبر التلويح بدعمهم وتسليحهم ضد رغبة تركيا ..

كانت عملية تحرير حلب هي أول ضربة قاصمة لمشروع التقسيم لأن النصرة هزمت في حلب وظهر أنها تعرضت لضربة موجعة جدا حيث خسرت خيرة مقاتليها ومعاقلها وبدت أنها تترنح فهي لم تعد منذ تحرير حلب قادرة على القيام سوى بعمليات محدودة وهذا كان واضحا بعد عمليتي حماة وجوبر .. اللتين فشلتا .. والملاحظ أن هذا الضعف انعكس على اداء داعش العسكري أيضا التي تأثرت بشكل ملحوظ بهزيمة النصرة كثيرا في تفاعل غريب متبادل بين التنظيمين اللذين يبدوان مرتبطين بنفس حبل السرة .. ولذلك فان النصرة ستتأثر أكثر اذا ماهزمت داعش وفق نفس الملاحظة والمنظور ..

وهنا ظهرت المناروة الذكية الثانية فهي اقتراح تخفيف التصعيد في مناطق متفرقة وفيها تواجد للنصرة وهي ضربة أخرى قوية لمشروع التقسيم الذي أوكل الى داعش والنصرة .. واختيرت مناطق تخفيف التصعيد بعناية لعزل النصرة وبحيث أنه لايمكن قيام كيانات في هذه المناطق .. بل ان ادلب التي هي الأقرب الى تركيا لن تقدر تركيا على اقتراح انفصالها او الحاقها بها لأن ذلك سيعني أنها يجب أن تعترف بالمقابل بكيان كردي على غرار الكيان الادلبي .. فاذا قامت بسلخ ادلب مثلا فان انسلاخ الشمال الكردي سيكون النتيجة التالية لأنها قدمت المبرر القانوني والشرعي والميداني لذلك ولاتستطيع القول بأنها ترفض كيانا كرديا اذا قبلت بكيان مستقل مشوه في ادلب .. وسيكون القلق الكردي في أقصى مستوياته وهو يرى نفسه محاصرا بين كيان ادلب وكيان اسلامي على نهر الفرات .. وعندها لن تقف روسيا وسورية حائلا أمام انفعال الحركة الكردية التي ستصاب بالرعب من هذا الفخ وسيطلق لها العنان ضد تركيا .. وهذا هو هاجس تركيا .. وقد سمع الاتراك رسائل روسية صريحة بهذا الخصوص قيلت على شكل نصائح ودية بأن اي محاولة لسلخ ادلب او عزلها ككيان غالبا ما سيتلوه حرب كردية تركية حتى الموت تصل الى أحشاء تركيا لن تقدر روسيا على كبح جماحها ولن تقدر على مساعدة تركيا لتجنبها خاصة اذا ما غذتها الحكومة السورية من منطق انها تريد مساعدة شعبها في المنطقة الكردية ليدافع عن نفسه ..

واذا ما تحرك الجيش واسترد المنطقة الشرقية مع الحشد الشعبي العراقي فان شيئين سيتحطمان هما: الثورة السورية ومشروع التقسيم .. فمن غير داعش في الشرق لا تقسيم .. ومن غير داعش في الشرق فان القوى العسكرية المتبقية للارهاب ليست ذات شأن بدليل أن اقصى ماتقدر عليه النصرة قدمته في معركة حلب ولكنها هزمت وسحقت في تلك المعركة الكبيرة .. ومن لايصمد في حلب التي حشد العالم فيها لمنع سقوطها فانه لن يصمد في ادلب الا اسبوعين او ثلاثة .. فالقوة الحقيقية الآن في الرقة والمنطقة الشرقية ..

وتم اقتراح المناطق خفيفة التصعيد لتشكل بؤرة لتبريد الحرب وهي ستظهر وكانها استجابة لاقتراح ترامب في ايجاد مناطق باردة يعود اليها اللاجئون .. فيما يتم تحريك قوات ضخمة في نفس الوقت نحو المنطقة الشرقية لأن استطلاع الحلفاء كان يراقب منذ فترة التحركات في الجنوب وعلى الأراضي الاردنية والتي فهم منها انه للتوغل في جنوب سورية ووصل خط الفرات بجنوب سورية بحيث تلتقي القوات الاميركية في المنطقة الشرقية مع القوات الامريكية ومرتزقتها في الجنوب السوري على شكل قوس يكمل عزل شرق سورية عن غربها بشكل كتيم ..على الرغم أن الغاية الرئيسية منها هي فقط منع القوات السورية من التحشيد نحو المنطقة الشرقية وابقائها في الجنوب مستعدة لاحتمال التحرك الغربي نحو المنطقة الجنوبية .. وبذلك تكون هذه القوات مغناطيسا يمسك بحديد وفولاذ الجيش السوري ويمنعه من تهديد داعش .. لأن داعش هي قلب التقسيم .. وقلب الثورة السورية التي ستسقط بسقوط داعش المخلب الأسود للثورة السورية ..

الاميريكيون يحسون أنهم يجب أن يفصلوا الشرق باي ثمن ولكن محور المقاومة تابع سيره نحو المنطقة الشرقية وفي نفس الوقت أظهر اعلاميا رصده الدقيق لصور الحشود الغربية والمرتزقة في الجنوب كي يقول بصراحة أنه يقظ وان الحشود مرصودة وان ضربها سهل للغاية وان تورطها قد يكلفها غاليا ..

مما سبق نجد أن الديبلوماسية السورية ليست ساذجة وهي تتعامل مع خريطة معقدة جدا ببراعة تحسب لها وأن العقل السياسي السوري متقد ويتفاعل مع كل التحركات بهدوء وطمأنينة .. وهذا من اسباب ثقتنا به وعدم انجرافنا وراء العواطف والانفعالات تجاه كل ما يقال وما تروجه الدعاية .. والسبب هو اننا نتعامل مع حرب واضحة لا أسرار فيها ولاحجب .. بل كل شيء على الطاولة ..وكل الأطراف وضعت أقنعتها جانبا فلم يعد هناك حاجة لارتداء الأقنعة في حفلات لا يتنكر فيها أحد .. الا الأغبياء الذين يمثلون علينا دور الثوار والمعارضين السوريين .. ونحن نرمقهم ونراقبهم ونرى الألوان والأصبغة تذوب عن وجوههم واشعارهم وشعاراتهم ..

Turkey has once again started producing one of its episodes in its long series on the Syrian war. This time it used the chemical weapon, which almost led to a US military attack on Syria in 2013 following a purported attack in Damascus’ Ghouta neighborhood. The attack occurred during the beginning of the second term of Barack Obama’s presidency. Now, with the start of Donald Trump’s era, the attempt has returned using chemical weapons against a Syrian city to prompt the US to launch a direct military attack against the Syrian state.


Who Owns SMART News Agency That Broadcasted Khan Sheikhoun Images?

This time, the plan partially succeeded. But the Russian military presence formed a barrier preventing Washington from opening a large front against Syria. This as well as the fact that US military decision makers were convinced of Washington’s inability to fight a major war in the world after its financial and moral loss in Iraq. Also US military leaders are more cautious in going to war than the US intelligence agency (CIA), which works according to plots where it can to maintain its role and presence. Therefore, this apparatus was and still is the closest to the current Turkish rulers, coordinating their support for Takfiri factions in Syria, which have been fighting in all fields since 2011.

In Khan Sheikhoun, the images that were broadcast to most television channels around the world depicting the victims of the chemical bombardment were broadcast from the site of the attack through the SMART News Agency, which is owned by the Syrian opposition figure Shamsi Sarkis. The company is based in Gaziantep in Turkey.

Sarkis, who lived in France all his life until the outbreak of the Syrian war, is the son of another Syrian opposition figure Sarkis Sarkis, whose name was associated with the oil-for-food program organized by the US intelligence and the regime of Saddam Hussein in cooperation with Kofi Annan in the nineties.

Through this theft and fraud operation, Sarkis Sarkis gathered a huge fortune estimated in the tens of millions of dollars at the expense of the Iraqi people’s blood and poverty. He went from being chased, poor and destitute in French cities, to owning hotels across France and apartments in the most prestigious Parisian neighborhoods, thanks to the oil-for-food program.

Sarkis, a member of the Iraqi Baath Party that included Syrian opposition groups, did not stop from attacking the regime in Syria even though senior officials of the Iraqi Baath Party turned to Syria during the US occupation. During the period of Chirac’s rule and the issuance of Resolution 1559, Sarkis Sarkis worked on inciting a military attack on Syria. He also had close ties to the former Syrian opposition figure Akram Al-Hourani and he bankrolled the printing of Hourani’s memoirs.

Akram Al-Hourani is the father of opposition figure Fida Hourani, who hosted the US and French ambassadors Robert Ford and Eric Shuvalih in the city of Hama on Friday, July 9, 2011.

Fida Hourani was the president of the Damascus Declaration for Democratic Change, which was established in 2005 and whose members were Syrian dissidents who took the lead in requesting American military intervention in Syria, including Riad Seif, Haytham al-Maleh, Michel Kilo and Anas al-Abdah. The Syrian Muslim Brotherhood also had a major role in the declaration.

These are the same faces you see since George W. Bush announced America’s decision to reshape the Middle East according to its interests. The same people, but with different banners and new names; fictitious companies fabricated for a while, which disappear so that this same person creates a second, third, and countless companies.

Do you remember the American project to support the media against the axis of resistance in the Arab world? The oil-for-food program in Iraq was one of its means of securing funds.Al-Ahed News

Yesterday, I discussed Saudi Arabia’s almost guaranteed role in the downing of the Russian Metrojet airliner which departed Sharm Al-Shaykh, Egypt, carrying over 200 passengers and crew returning to St. Petersburg in Russia.  This is hardly the beginning of the intimate relationship this barbaric Stone Age kingdom of apes and cockroaches has with international terrorism.  The roots of the love affair with mass murder actually goes back decades to the Saudi flair for building mosques around the world and plying their Wahhabist clerics with enough money to insure obedience whenever the circumstances require.

Forget for a moment the deep Saudi involvement with the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center.  Forget the fact that the Saudis and Qataris have a vital stake in blocking the natural gas pipeline from Iran, across Iraq, to Syria for export to Europe which will put to death the banana plantation of Qatar.  Forget that Saudi Arabia is the most oppressive regime on earth with laws reminiscent of those promulgated by Hammurabi, Assur-Nasir-Pal or Neanderthal Man.  Forget that women cannon drive cars in their monarchy of squat; that you can’t have a cold beer on a hot day; that you can’t go to the cinema even though you can watch the same thing on satellite television; that a woman cannot travel without permission from her simian husband or some even more apelike male close relative; that you have to believe in their fake god or else; that you cannot build a church on their stinking sand dunes; that they crucify people they behead.  Forget all these things, but, remember this:

That they have swindled their own people out of trillions of petrodollars by siphoning off profits from oil and concluding illusory contracts for arms and technology most of which resulted in absolutely nothing but the purchase of England.  If the Saudis and Qataris were to withdraw their money from banks on the Isle of Man, the entire sceptered island with all its pretensions would sink like a stone merd in a cesspool of memories.  If you want to know why Cameron is the slave of these monkeys and why he is so bloody terrified of doing anything to offend them, “cherchez l’argent”.  The banks on the Isle of Man know fully well how the Saudi regime is financing terror.  The English government deliberately ignores all reporting statutes to permit the Saudis to prosecute their war crimes against the people of Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, Egypt, and, now, Russia.  Nobody fears this disclosure more than David Cameron whose own crimes against humanity are now fully ripe and parallel to those of his predecessor, Tony Blair.  If you want to know why he is so vehement in his opposition to Jeremy Corbyn’s potential rise to power in the U.K., it’s because Corbyn will put an end to this charade and rid England, once and for all, of the Arabian troglodytes who infest the English corridors of power.  And, it’s not only England, as so many Americans now know.

We have said this before: it all started out in 2007 as revealed by Wikileaks.  The plan to destabilize Syria and overthrow its legitimate sitting government was hatched back then by a committee of criminals made up of Saudis, Englishmen, Americans, Jordanians, Germans and French.  Turks did not participate because at that time, Erdoghan enjoyed excellent relations with everybody on the block.  Right?……..Right.   The “mindermast” for the project was none other than the CIA-spook and crypto-diplomat, Robert Ford. (“Mindermast” is a mastermind invented by the great British comedy team of Beyond the Fringe in one of their legendary skits. Using the word “mastermind, you see, demoralized those trying to capture him.)  He was aided and abetted by his French counterpart in Damascus, Eric Chevalier (no relation to Maurice).  Together they assembled the teams which would coordinate the war crimes against the people of Syria.  This was the democratic and civilized West at its best and most predictable.

The project required the right moment.  Syria’s vaunted internal security system was frightfully adept at keeping rats out and the Ford team knew that a mere blip on the radar inside Syria would be tantamount to rushing at a nest of wasps.  They had to have the right time.

They also needed the right president.  Hafez Al-Assad, Dr. Assad’s father and predecessor,  fought an ugly 4 year war with a kaleidoscope of terrorists, referred to conveniently as the Muslim Brotherhood, and finally annihilated them at Hama where your editor, Ziad, was situated in February of 1982 to watch the events unfold.   Dr. Assad was analyzed by the CIA’s Psychiatric Profile Office as a modest person with an aversion to excessive force.  He was also, to some degree, westernized with an obsession for the internet and science.  In other words, he would be a soft touch.  But, you still needed the right moment in order to vex the entrenched security supremos who would more than make up for the president’s sheepish personality.

You also had to have, as part of this plan, a member state capable of financing the revolt.  That was a no-brainer.  Both Qatar and Saudi Arabia had, at that time, reams of cash deposited in British banks.  All it took was a look askance and the process would move very smoothly.

Time?  Which time?  When would the project start?  Enter the Arab Spring.  President Assad was interviewed about this phenomenon and he brushed aside suggestions that events in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Libya could spread to Syria.  He felt that the economy, which was at a 6% annual growth rate, with hundreds of millions of dollars being deployed for massive tourist development, thanks to the Arabian plutocrats, with excellent cooperation from Turkey, would dispel any fear of such a metastatic process in his country.  It just couldn’t happen.  The people were too happy.

To make this section a bit shorter and more to the point:  the project depended upon two events:  The first was an on-going demonstration of popular discontent.  That was started in Der’ah and spread to cities like Homs and Idlib.  Surprisingly, it did not catch on in Hama, a city which already pocketed the wages of insurrection in 1982.  The second was predicted to be “mass defections from the army and security services”.  The Americans, especially, studied the downfall of Romanian dictator, Caucescu, whose reliance on the security services was misplaced once the army took the side of the people.  It was imperative that the army also join the Syrian insurrectionists – who would be mostly discontented Sunnis with some minorities backing them.  BUT, THE PROJECT WAS A FLOP.

The Army did not lose many soldiers or officers to defections.  With the exception of some bigoted dead-career failures like ‘Abdul-Jabbaar Al-‘Uqaydi and Riyaadh Al-As’ad, the army remained very cohesive and loyal to the state.  What to do now that the force which was arrayed against the government simply did not have the oomph to assault the capital or even occupy a neighborhood?  You needed to get “support”.  The word “nusra” means exactly that.  You had to get support for the nascent insurrection against the massive Ba’ath infrastructure in Syria.  Without hundreds of thousands of mercenaries to give support,  the poorly trained, underpopulated and incompetent gangs of terrorists would be facing the full weight of the 300,000 man standing army of Syria, its hundreds of thousands of Ba’ath Party stalwarts and the pervasive, ubiquitous, all-seeing internal security services.  But, how can you get the “supporting” savages?

The Saudis stepped up to the plate as the only member of this cabal of mass murderers.  They had deep contacts with the terrorists of Iraq – even deeper with many disgruntled former Sunni officers in Saddam’s army, Alqaeda in Iraq, and its leaders.  They also had the tens of thousands of mosques they had financed all over the world.  The mosques they funded were inevitably led by militant Wahhabist money-grubbing hypocrites who would not hesitate to spread the call of “Jihad” in Syria.  And that’s exactly what they did.  Imagine how effective they were in snookering thousands of their “pious” degenerates from mosques in England, Germany, France, Belgium and Spain.  And now imagine how critical it was to maintain the financial health of these mosques in Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Iraq and all the peninsular countries who would form the backbone of the “support” forces which would engulf Syria and its people in a cauldron of fire that would continue until the ouster of its sitting secular president, Dr. Bashar Al-Assad.  BUT,  IT DIDN’T WORK.

All the money spent on buying reporters like Charley Rose, CNN, ABC, NBC, the NYT, WSJ, and the list goes on ad nauseam….all this and the attempt to shake down Vladimir Putin….the drop in oil prices which boomeranged right in their hideous Wahhabist faces…all that and more, with chicanery reaching levels of obnoxiousness worthy of Zionism… dealings with Mileikowski……millions upon millions spent on Turkish cooperation and salaries for downtrodden Third World grunts dreaming of the Paradise which, if they were truly lucky, would be death and respite from the unctuous hypocrisy of the stinking Wahhabist regime which daily robs its own people of any self-respect or dignity.

Biden admitted it. Saudi Arabia funds terrorism. But, Saudi Arabia is your ally, Mr. Biden.  Turkey aids and abets terrorists.  Turkey is a member of NATO.  France has a war criminal in office by the name of Hollande – his popularity level now below 12% – and he calls our president illegitimate.  He hungers so much for Saudi lucre, you can smell his froggy sweat all the way across the lake.  He has sold out to the devil.

Today, Saudi students don’t have the money to study overseas because the House of Saud has stolen every penny.  They stole money and sent it to terrorists.  They preferred the interests of terrorists over those of their own people.  They are illegitimate.  They have no future in any Arabian government.  They have no future in Arabia.


LATAKIA:  With all the noise now about the impending SAA attack on the terrorist lines in Kuwayris, you would think there is no other news.  Not so.  We are seeing a sea-change in the balance of forces on the Turkish border in Latakia.


Ghumaam:  The SAA has now successfully dismantled all booby traps and IEDs in this area.  The entire Ghumaan area is rat free.  This means, you will not see any more missiles being fired at the provincial capital.  It was here, from Ghumaan where the Turk-supported murdering rodents fired Saudi-supplied rockets at our people in Latakia.  All the mountaintops here are cleansed.  A command-control center for all terrorist groupings was found yesterday and it contained a treasure-trove of CDs and other very incriminating evidence which will be used to prosecute the war criminals of Turkey and Saudi Arabia.

Jabal Al-Firk:  All hills surrounding the area now liberated by the SAA.

Jubb Al-Za’roor:  The SAA killed 22 rodents here an took over 15 prisoners.  3 field hospitals were discovered filled with Turk-manufactured pharmaceuticals and Saudi-supplied cocaine.  The Captagon slated for delivery is still in Beirut with its Saudi mule.  A Hell Cannon was also destroyed along with a 23mm Doschka, 20 gas canisters readies for detonation, C-4 and TNT and stolen pharmaceuticals from Syrian clinics.

He has looked better in the past.  Iraqi militias put him and his companions to death after several hours following his tracks.  He was killed in convoy.

His fake-looking red hair and beard were tell-tale signs of a madman.  As it turned out, he was pretty stupid too.  He was the only man in the Saddam government who could criticize Fearless Leader openly.

He acted as Saddam’s  uncle and confidant.  In truth, though, he was no Ba’athist because he sold his soul to the stinking rat Erdoghani Turks and guided his “Odessa Organization” toward ISIS.  It was he, more than anyone else, who put together the rape of Mosul.
