An analyst says the
United States and its Zionist masters are using al-Qaeda and other
militant groups as a tool to break up Syria into pieces.
In the background of this the al-Nusra rebel Group in Syria,
financed and supported with equipment and training by certain Western
and Arab countries, has confessed to being a part of al-Qaeda. Syria is now
urging the United Nations to classify the al-Nusra Front as an
al-Qaeda-linked group. Syria has always maintained that the bulk of
fighting and atrocities in Syria are being conducted by these extremist
foreign entities funded by a coalition of enemy countries and that there
is no civil war as Western media are leading their populations to
Press TV has interviewed Dr. Kevin Barrett, author and political
commentator, Madison about this issue. The following is an approximate
transcription of the interview.
Press TV: Should we expect the UNSC (United Nations Security Council) to respond positively to this Syrian request?
Barrett: I doubt it. Unfortunately, the United Nations and
the leading powers that dominates the United Nations - of course, the US
and its NATO allies - are very hypocritical in the way they deal with
On the one hand they pretend that al-Qaeda is some sort of jihadist
group that wants to destroy the United States, which is why it is OK to
run all over the world murdering people with drone attacks. That’s all
supposedly part of this emergency of global war against al-Qaeda.
And yet in Syria, which is the main place where we have
people who are declaring themselves to be al-Qaeda actually fighting and
conducting terrorist attacks, it seems that the big global institutions
like the US, NATO and the UN are perfectly happy to not only allow this
so-called al-Qaeda radical Islamic group to be wreaking havoc in Syria
and destabilizing the Syrian government, but they are actually arming
Press TV: From day one the United States has said it only
wants to support moderate groups such as the FSA (Free Syrian Army)
according to it, which is moderate. How do you respond to such an
So it will be really interesting to see how the West deals with this
situation now that the al-Nusra Front is actually declaring itself to
be a part of al-Qaeda.
Barrett: The fact of the matter is that the people who were
doing most of the fighting in Syria are these people who are calling
themselves linked to al-Qaeda.
And the weapons that are going to this so-called insurgent coalition are ending up mainly in the hands of these people.
And of course they’re not really fighting for a kind of a big anti-imperialist Islamic revolution, although a few of them actually believe
that. This is all part of a destabilization operation aimed at Syria and
the Middle East designed to break Syria up into pieces according to the
‘Yinon Plan’ (Zionist plan for the Middle East) that was drafted in
Israel several decades ago.
So this idea that there are good moderate groups blowing
up schools and mosques and so on in Syria and then there are also some
bad groups, and that somehow the US is going to make sure that the
weapons are only going to the nice moderate groups, is really a charade.
The hypocrisy of these Western powers is just getting way out of control.
