Jihadi Forum Claims Israel-US-Iran Alliance in Ongoing Syrian Civil War

An online Jihadi forum is claiming that Israel, the United States and Iran have formed an alliance in order to exploit and capitalize on the Syrian civil war.

On the password-protected Shumukh al-Islam website, al-Qaeda’s premier online forum, a thread that was begun weeks ago, in which members offered observations and suggestions about Syria, was condensed into a strategic document to combat “threats” to the country.

“With time, everyone will be exhausted, all weapons in Syria will be destroyed, and all signs of civilization will be obliterated and cast back to what existed before the Stone Age,” it reads. “Thus will the path be paved for direct and indirect military intervention in Syria, and for redrawing the map in accordance with the wishes of the Zionist-Crusader-Zoroastrian alliance.”

“Zionist-Crusader-Zoroastrian alliance” refers to the U.S., Israel and Iran.

The author of the post, which was translated by Jihadica, outlined a major strategy for the ongoing Syrian Jihad.

“First,” the author writes, “most of our thinkers expect the struggle in Syria to endure for a long time, and it is necessary therefore to make the needed provisions for this.

“Second, there is currently an ongoing race, and there will be Crusader-Israeli-Iranian efforts, to wrest control of or destroy the chemical weapons facilities within Syria before they come under the control of those whom this criminal alliance believes are a danger to it: namely, the jihadis or Hezbollah from the perspective of the Jews and the Crusaders, and the jihadis from the perspective of the Iranian Zoroastrians and the Crusaders.

“Third, a Crusader power will, inevitably, arrive on Syrian territory, using multiple pretexts such as “preserving peace” or “protecting the Jews” or “protecting the poor and innocent Alawite community!!!!”

“Fourth, there will be efforts to partition Syrian territory—or partition will be imposed upon it—with a view to protecting the Alawite sect so that the latter may serve as a Crusader-Jewish-Zoroastrian nail in the throat of the Sunnis in greater Syria. This is an outcome which must be guarded against no matter how many Islamists engage in the conspiracy, either as clients cognizant of the conspiracy, or as fools ignorant of it.

“Eighth, after the exhaustion or downfall of the regime, the Zionist-Crusader-Zoroastrian alliance and its allies in Syria will, if possible, reorient its compass in a new direction, sealing off all borders to forestall an influx of jihadi recruits and any kind of logistical support for them. This will be with a view to besieging them [the jihadis] and beginning a confrontation with those of them present inside the country.”

The forum’s author, after detailing the threats posed by foreign powers, suggests ways to resolve said threats. The Jihadis must  collect “the greatest possible amount of heavy and unconventional weapons” while “recruiting large fighting units,” the authors write, while first and foremost urging “patience…and more patience, and trust in God alone in all things, and dependence upon Him, be He praised and exalted. For He is the Bringer of success and the All-Knowing about His servants.”

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    JNS.org – One of the most controversial operas in recent memory, “The Death of Klinghoffer,” debuted Oct. 20 at New York’s Metropolitan Opera.
