By their conduct and interactions, “Syrian” rebels have confirmed that they are agents of Zionism, imperialism and Wahhabism.
It is not surprising to read that Syrian rebels have sent messages to Zionist Israel congratulating it on its “independence day” and even hoping to have next year’s celebration in Damascus! There is nothing “Syrian” about these rebels; they are mercenaries working on behalf of imperialism and Zionism. No people, however oppressed, can justify their alliance with the mortal enemies of Islam, Muslims, and humanity.
The conduct of these rebels toward ordinary Syrians of whatever faith is absolutely shocking: raping women and girls, killing innocent people and slaughtering them like sheep in the streets is beyond description. Islam absolutely forbids such conduct. How can these people call themselves Muslims? Can they quote on ayah from the Qur’an or hadith of the noble Messenger (pbuh) to justify their behavior? If not — and they cannot — then they are in rebellion against Allah’s (swt) commands!
While Western and Zionist rulers are the open enemies of Allah (swt) and of humanity, the Arabian rulers also stand exposed. Their overthrow is the obligation for all Muslims worldwide.
