Syrian Rebel Leader Salim Idris: Israel Is Our Enemy

Posted by Phoenix Woman on September 4, 2013

Syrian rebel leader Salim Idris 'Israel is an enemy country'

I was disappointed, after seeing a Politico story about how the Israel Lobby was apparently staying out of the Syria debate, to find out from another Politico article (and a suspiciously-edited NYT article) that AIPAC was in fact the strongest voice pushing the Obama White House to attack Syria.

Even as AIPAC now (officially) joins the Kill-Assad Chorus, plans were being made to bring Salim Idris, the nominal leader of the Syrian rebels (that is, someone who the AIPAC/House of Saud Axis figures looks good in a suit and who won’t eat dead people’s body parts in public) to testify before Congress. (Are you thinking about the “incubator” tales used to justify the first set of attacks against Saddam Hussein? Yeah, me too.)

One wonders if AIPAC might want to reconsider the whole thing, should these excerpts from this videotaped interview from May get wider circulation:

Salim Idris: As for us being Israeli collaborators – the only Israeli collaborator in the region is the criminal Bashar. The Israeli collaborators are the people who put on the show of the 2006 war – Hizbullah and its leader Hassan Nasrallah. They diverted all their forces to the slaughtering of Syrians. Their scheme is totally clear. They used to hide behind the pretext of resistance and the fight against Israel, but now it has become clear that they are implementing a sectarian, Iranian, Safavid plan in the region.

[…]

If [we] get the necessary weapons and ammunition, we will be capable of toppling the regime in less than 40 days. My brothers, the rebels, know I’m not just bragging.

[…]

Israel is an enemy country. I say this loud and clear. It occupies Syrian lands. The FSA will not change its position regarding that country before [Israel] withdraws from the Syrian lands, and recognizes the legitimate rights of the Arab Palestinian people. [Then] we will abide by the decision of the Arab people of Syria.

The thing speaks for itself.

    They’re getting their collective ass kicked and more of anything won’t help them.
