Washington DC – According to our sources in Sayedah Zainab, Syria, 10 kilometers outside Damascus, thousands of Shia and Sunni Sufi Muslims are in danger of massacre by the Free Syrian Army and groups affiliated with them. These also include many Shia and Sunni Sufi (Barelvi) Muslims from Pakistan, India, Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries who settled in Syria in last several hundred years. Shia Rights Watch has learned from many residents living in the area that the Free Syrian army has threatened to massacre all the Shia and Sufi Sunni Muslims in the area unless they flea.

Most of the Shiites living in the area are refugees from Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and other countries. The Shi’a community there flourished by building hospitals, schools, hotels, and shops. The Shi’as living in and around the area of Damascus have played no part in the ongoing violence that is occurring in Syria between the rebels and the government.

We call on the United Nations, the United States, and Members of the United Nations Security Council to immediately interfere to stop the imminent massacre of thousands of innocent Shi’a Muslims living around the holy shrine of the granddaughter of the Prophet Mohamed where a suicide bomber blew up an explosive laden car near the shrine weeks ago killing some and damaging the shrine itself.

The Free Syrian Amy and similar armed groups have previously stated their anti-Shi’a positions which led to the killing of dozens of Shi’a including 23 Iraqis killed in the past ten days and the beheadings of others. Several Shia scholars where killed including Syrian born Afghan Sayed Naser Alavi who was killed April 13, 2012 .

We specifically call on Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar to use their influence on the Free Syrian Army to stop the massacre of Shi’a and Sunni Sufi Muslims who have no involvement in the conflict between the Syrian government and the rebels. They have played no role in supporting either side.

We call on U.N. observers to travel to the area and prevent the Free Syrian Army and its affiliates from harming innocent Shi’a Muslims and their holy places.

We especially call on the international media and international community to immediately dispatch reporters to the region in order to prevent the ensuing tragedy by gaining international attention.

Threats of genocide have also come from outside Syria form people who fund the Free Syrian Army. A former member of the Kuwaiti Parliament Osama AlMunawer (Salafi Extremists) has promised to destroy the shrine of Sayedah Zainab, holding the remains of the granddaughter of Prophet Mohamed. AlMunawer made this statement on his twitter account July 18. The Kuwaiti government is responsible for AlMunawer’s statement as he holds its citizenship. The international community is requested to pressure Kuwait to hold such criminals to account.

We strongly condemn these terroristic actions against the Shi’a and moderate Sunni community in Syria and call for urgent action for the protection of these communities.

Tariq Ali on Russia Today: ‘Syrian rebels create mayhem to blame it on Assad regime’

Moscow says those behind the latest massacre in Syria want to unleash sectarian violence and ignite full civil war. Over two hundred people are believed to have been killed in the central province of Hama. Both government and rebel forces blame each other for the slaughter – while the UN remains paralysed on whether to extend its observer mission, or impose sanctions. Russia Today talks to author and Middle East expert Tariq Ali from London.

وہابی چینل: اے یزید کے پوتو اے معاویہ کے فرزندو! بنت علی (ع) کا حرم منہدم کرو
آل سعود سے وابستہ ایک وہابی ٹی وی چینل نے دہشت گردوں کو اکسانے اور مشتعل کرنے کی نیت سے، ان کی دہشت گردانہ کاروائیوں کی تعریف کرتے ہوئے ان دہشت گردوں کو یزید بن معاویہ اور معاویہ بن ابی سفیان کے “برحق پوتے اور نواسے” قرار دیا ہے اور ان کو ہدایت کی ہے کہ دمشق میں حضرت سیدہ زینب اور حضرت سیدہ رقیہ سلام اللہ علیہما کے مزارات کو منہدم کریں۔

اطلاعات کے مطابق پوری دنیا میں دہشت گردی کی قیادت کرنے والے خاندان آل سعود سے وابستہ اور آل سعود کی خفیہ ایجنسیوں کے زیر سرپرستی چلنے والے ایک وہابی ٹیلی ویژن چینل “الصفا” نے شام کے دہشت گرد ٹولوں کو ـ جو نام نہاد “سیرین فریڈم آرمی” کے نام سے دہشت گردی کی کاروائیوں میں مصروف ہیں ـ شام میں بنو امیہ کے پوتے قراد دیا ہے اور ان سے کہا ہے کہ دمشق میں حضرت سیدہ زینب اور حضرت سیدہ رقیہ سلام اللہ علیہما کے مزارات کو ویران کردیں۔

اس چینل نے ایک اشتعال انگیز اور فتنہ انگیز پیغام میں کہا ہے: اے معاویہ بن ابی سفیان کے پوتو اور نواسو! اور اے یزید بن معاویہ کے پوتو! اے آزاد فوج کے سپاہیو! تمہیں زینب (س) کے “معبد” کو منہدم کرنا چاہئے اور اس کی مانند تمام قبروں کو ویران کرنا چاہئے۔

واضح رہے کہ آل سعود کے اس وہابی چینل کے دفاتر ریاض، کویت اور قاہرہ میں واقع ہیں اور اس نے سیدہ کے مزار کو معبد یا عبادتگاہ سے تعبیر کیا ہے جس کا مقصد سمجھنے والے سمجھتے ہیں اور یہ بھی جانتے ہیں کہ وہابی دین استعمار کا پیدا کردہ ہے

امریکہ اور برطانیہ مسلمانوں کے مذہبی جذبات کو مشتعل اور شام میں مذہبی فتنے کھڑے کرکے شام میں خانہ جنگی شروع کروانے کے درپے ہیں جس کے لئے قطر اور سعودی عرب اپنی ہر قسم کی فکری، مالی اور فوجی خدمات پیش کررہے ہیں اور قطر و سعودی عرب نیز ترکی اسرائیل کی کمانڈ میں سب کچھ کررہے ہیں۔

امریکہ، برطانیہ، فرانس وہابی تکفیری ٹولوں کی مدد کررہے ہیں اور وہابی چینلز “صفا”، “وصال”، “الحق”، “الحکمہ”، “مکہ”، “ناس”، “بیان”، “الخلیجیہ”، “الرحمہ”، “الاوطان” آل سعود اور قطر کے تیل کے ڈالروں سے امت اسلامی میں تفرقہ ڈالنے کے حوالے سے مغربی استعمار کی خدمت کررہے ہيں جبکہ آل سعود کا نیوز چینل “العربیہ” اور قطر کا نیوز چینل “الجزیرہ” بھی جلتی پر تیل کا کام کررہے ہیں نیز اسرائیلی، سعودی، قطری، امریکی، برطانوی، فرانسیسی اور ترکی انٹیلی جنس ادارے ان چینلوں اور دیگر ذرائع سے شام میں فتنہ انگيزی کرکے اسرائیل کی ڈوبتی کشتی کو بچانے کی سعی باطل میں مصروف ہیں۔

آل سعود سے وابستہ تکفیری وہابیوں نے حال ہی میں حرم سیدہ زینب سلام اللہ علیہا پر خودکش حملہ کرنے کی کوشش کی تھی لیکن خودکش دہشت گرد گھبرا گیا تھا اور حرم سے کافی فاصلے پر اپنے آپ کے 500 کلوگرام دھماکہ خیز مواد کے ساتھ دھماکے سے اڑا دیا تھا۔

اس کے بعد تکفیریوں نے حرم کا محاصرہ کرلیا تھا جو شامی فوج کی فوری اور تیز رفتار کاروائی کے نتیجے میں محاصرہ توڑ دیا گیا اور آل سعود کی آنکھوں کے تاروں نے درجنوں لاشیں چھوڑ کر فرار کو کرار پر ترجیح دی تھی۔

زینبیہ کا علاقہ عام طور پر شیعوں کا مسکن ہے جنھوں نے ان ایام میں سیدہ کے حرم مطہر اور حوزہ علمیہ سیدہ زینب سلام اللہ علیہا میں پناہ لے رکھی ہے جبکہ اس علاقے میں مقیم سینکڑوں عراقیوں کو دھمکیاں موصول ہونے کے بعد، وہ عراق واپس جا چکے ہیں۔

اس سے قبل وہابیوں نے اپنے اصل عقیدے کو آشکار کرتے ہوئے شام میں دہشت گردی کی کاروائیوں کو ہوا دینے کی نیت سے یزید بن معاویہ اور شمر بن ذی الجوشن کے نام پر مسلح یونٹوں کی تشکیل کا بھی اعلان کیا ہے جو “حمد بن جاسم بن جبر یونٹوں” اور “عبداللہ و نائف بن عبدالعزيز یونٹوں” کے شانہ بشانہ اسرائیل مخالف محاذ مزاحمت کے خلاف لڑ رہے ہیں۔

    Al Qaeda Taking Deadly New Role in Syria Conflict
    By ROD NORDLAND
    Published: July 24, 2012

    CAIRO — It is the sort of image that has become a staple of the Syrian revolution, a video of masked men calling themselves the Free Syrian Army and brandishing AK-47s — with one unsettling difference. In the background hang two flags of Al Qaeda, white Arabic writing on a black field.

    “We are now forming suicide cells to make jihad in the name of God,” said a speaker in the video using the classical Arabic favored by Al Qaeda.

    The video, posted on YouTube, is one more bit of evidence that Al Qaeda and other Islamic extremists are doing their best to hijack the Syrian revolution, with a growing although still limited success that has American intelligence officials publicly concerned, and Iraqi officials next door openly alarmed.

    While leaders of the Syrian political and military opposition continue to deny any role for the extremists, Al Qaeda has helped to change the nature of the conflict, injecting the weapon it perfected in Iraq — suicide bombings — into the battle against President Bashar al-Assad with growing frequency.

    The evidence is mounting that Syria has become a magnet for Sunni extremists, including those operating under the banner of Al Qaeda. An important border crossing with Turkey that fell into Syrian rebels’ hands last week, Bab al-Hawa, has quickly become a jihadist congregating point.

    The presence of jihadists in Syria has accelerated in recent days in part because of a convergence with the sectarian tensions across the country’s long border in Iraq. Al Qaeda, through an audio statement, has just made an undisguised bid to link its insurgency in Iraq with the revolution in Syria, depicting both as sectarian conflicts — Sunnis versus Shiites.

    Iraqi officials said the extremists operating in Syria are in many cases the very same militants striking across their country. “We are 100 percent sure from security coordination with Syrian authorities that the wanted names that we have are the same wanted names that the Syrian authorities have, especially within the last three months,” Izzat al-Shahbandar — a close aide to the Iraqi prime minister, Nuri Kamal al-Maliki — said in an interview on Tuesday. “Al Qaeda that is operating in Iraq is the same as that which is operating in Syria,” he said.

    One Qaeda operative, a 56-year-old known as Abu Thuha who lives in the Hawija district near Kirkuk in Iraq, spoke to an Iraqi reporter for The New York Times on Tuesday. “We have experience now fighting the Americans, and more experience now with the Syrian revolution,” he said. “Our big hope is to form a Syrian-Iraqi Islamic state for all Muslims, and then announce our war against Iran and Israel, and free Palestine.”

    Although he is a low-level operative, his grandiose plans have been echoed by Al Nusra Front for the People of the Levant, which military and intelligence analysts say is the major Qaeda affiliate operating in Syria, with two other Qaeda-linked groups also claiming to be active there, the Abdullah Azzam Brigades and Al Baraa ibn Malik Martyrdom Brigade.

    Since the start of the uprising, the Syrian government has sought to depict the opposition as dominated by Al Qaeda and jihadist allies, something the opposition has denied and independent observers said just was not true at the time. The uprising began as a peaceful protest movement and slowly turned into an armed battle in response to the government’s use of overwhelming lethal force.

    Syrian state media routinely described every explosion as a suicide bombing — as they did with a bombing on July 18 that killed at least four high-ranking government officials.

    Over time, though, Syria did become a draw for jihadists as the battle evolved into a sectarian war between a Sunni-dominated opposition and government and security forces dominated by the Alawite sect. Beginning in December, analysts began seeing what many thought really were suicide bombings.

    Since then, there have been at least 35 car bombings and 10 confirmed suicide bombings, 4 of which have been claimed by Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, according to data compiled by the Institute for the Study of War.

    In some cases, such as on June 1, when a bomb struck at government security offices in Idlib, or on April 27, when a suicide bombing killed 11 people in Damascus, Al Nusra claimed credit for the attacks in postings on a jihadist Web site, according to the SITE monitoring group. Al Nusra also claimed responsibility for a June 30 attack on Al Ikhbariya TV, a pro-government station, which it said “was glorifying the tyrant day and night.” Seven media workers were killed, to international condemnation. Syrian opposition spokesmen denied any role.

    In February, the United States’ director of national intelligence, James Clapper, told a Congressional hearing that there were “all the earmarks of an Al Qaeda-like attack” in a series of bombings against security and intelligence targets in Damascus. He and other intelligence community witnesses attributed that to the spread into Syria of the Iraqi branch of Al Qaeda.

    Shortly before Mr. Clapper’s testimony, Ayman al-Zawahri, the apparent leader of Al Qaeda since the killing of Osama bin Laden, released an audio recording in which he praised the Syrian revolutionaries lavishly, calling them “the lions of the Levant,” a theme that has since been taken up repeatedly in public pronouncements by the group.

    Daniel Byman, a counterterrorism expert who is a professor at Georgetown University and a fellow at the Brookings Institution, said it is clear that Al Qaeda is trying to become more active in Syria. As it has already done in Somalia and Mali, and before that in Chechnya and Yemen, the group is trying to turn a local conflict to its advantage. “There’s no question Al Qaeda wants to do that, and they are actually pretty good at this sort of thing,” he said. “They’ve done well at taking a local conflict” and taking it global.

    They have done this by relying more on local fighters than on foreign ones, except at upper leadership levels — correcting a mistake that cost them credibility in the early years of the Iraqi conflict. “They learned a lot from Iraq,” Mr. Byman said. “They even write about this — they say, ‘We got on the wrong side of the locals.’ ” In Iraq, the government is led by the Shiite majority, while a Sunni minority has been Al Qaeda’s early breeding ground.

    On Sunday, one day before a wave of 40 attacks across in Iraq, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the pseudonymous leader of the group’s Iraqi affiliate, issued a rare audio statement, not only predicting the next day’s attacks, but also praising Syria’s revolutionaries. “You have taught the world lessons in courage, jihad and patience,” he said, according to a translation provided by the monitoring organization SITE.

    Joseph Holliday, an analyst from the Institute for the Study of War who studies Al Qaeda and the Arab Spring, said, “The emergence of Al Qaeda-linked terrorist cells working against the regime poses risks to the United States and a challenge to those calling for material support of the armed opposition.”

    He added: “It’s something to keep an eye out for, the convergence of Iraq and Syria. As the Syrian government loses the ability to project force on the periphery of its territory, what you’re going to see is an emboldened Sunni opposition emerging in Nineveh and Iraq.”

    For the moment, though, the mainstream Syrian opposition is nearly uniform in its opposition to a role for Al Qaeda in its popular uprising.

    “Every now and then, we hear about Al Qaeda in Syria, but there is so far no material evidence that they are here,” said Samir Nachar, a member of the executive bureau of the Syrian National Congress. “The regime has talked about it, and there were political statements from the Iraqi government that Al Qaeda has moved from Iraq to Syria, but on the ground there is no information on the presence of foreign fighters.”

    In hard-pressed Deir Ezzor in eastern Syria, not far from the Iraqi border, a Free Syrian Army brigade leader, identified only as Sayid, said in an interview by Skype that he had heard rumors about Qaeda fighters, but had never actually seen one. In Deir Ezzor earlier this year, a massive truck bomb exploded near a military base — which the resistance attributed to the Assad regime, claiming it had bombed itself.

    “If Al Qaeda comes to get rid of him,” Sayid said, referring to Mr. Assad, “why not? But I personally have seen none of them.”

    Radical Islamists with “British accents” are among the coalition forces looking to topple Bashar Assad, says Jeroen Oerlemans, a photographer who was held hostage in Syria for a week. The UK Foreign Office has launched an investigation.
    Oerlemans, a famous Dutch photo journalist, and John Cantlie, another photographer from the UK, were captured by a group of between 30 and 100 anti-Assad fighters when crossing the Syrian border from Turkey last week. They were then blindfolded.
    “One of the black jihadists freaked out and shouted: ‘These are journalists and now they will see we are preparing an international jihad in this place.'” Oerlemans told NRC Handelsblatt newspaper. He said that none of the fighters was Syrian.
    “They all claimed they came from countries like Pakistan and Bangladesh and Chechnya and they said there was some vague ’emir’ at the head of the group.”
    About 40 per cent of the militants spoke English. In fact, several apparently talked with recognizable regional British accents, from Birmingham and London.
    “As soon as Assad has fallen, these fighters want to introduce Islamic law, Sharia, in Syria,” said Oerlemans.

    Major media admit presence of foreign militants in Syria
    http://www.presstv.ir/detail/253601.html

  • Excuse me?!

    For decades an Alevi entrenched army has been the backbone of the Baathist regime. If Al Qaeda has taken advantage of the situation it doesn’t make the Baath cum Alevi regime humanist. They have been committing human rights violations for decades so it is simply sad to make Free Syrian Army sound like terrorists without mentioning the appropriation of their rights and human rights abuses by a regime supported by a very organised Alevi community.

  • Perhaps a similar appeal can also be made about the thousands of sunni dominated settlements facing killings at the hands of the real Syrian army?
