An “unholy alliance” of US-led Zionists and Wahhabis is funding and fuelling the deadly unrest in Syria, trying to “bring the Syrian government to its knees”, a political analyst says.
"Syria is bracing for more political chaos as all antagonistic forces appear to have entered into an unholy alliance to bring the government to its knees by ingeniously choreographing massacres and attributing them to Syrian government, thereby turning the country into fertile soil for US-led invasion,” wrote Dr. Ismail Salami in an article published on the Global Research website on Tuesday.
Pointing to the deadly clashes in the township of Houla in the Western Syrian city of Homs, which, according to the UN observer mission in Syria, left 108 people dead, he added that "What deserves due attention in the carnage that happened in Houla is that many were shot dead at close range, many were Shia Muslims and many were women and children.”
"In other words, these atrocities are conjectured to have been carried out at the hands of the extremist Wahhabis and al-Qaeda elements who are notorious for targeting women and children in their terrorist operations,” the political analyst further elaborated.
The analyst also explained that the fact that those murdered in Houla were mainly Shia Muslims reinforces the conjecture that the massacre was perpetrated by the "Wahhabis” who "nurse inveterate loathing” toward Shia Muslims.
Salami pointed out the role of Washington in sponsoring Syrian rebels, referring to a recent report by The Washington Post that they "have begun receiving significantly more and better weapons in recent weeks, an effort paid for by Persian Gulf nations and coordinated in part by the United States’”. "Washington is pressing Qatar and Saudi Arabia to fund and provide the rebels with heavy weaponries," he added.
The writer also highlighted London’s financial support for the al-Qaeda-affiliated anti-Damascus forces in Syria, noting that "The government of al-Assad is losing ground thanks to the influx of the extremist Wahhabis and al-Qaeda members and on account of the financial and military support the rebels receive from the West and the Persian Gulf regimes.”
"Although these groups may ostensibly be at daggers drawn over different issues, they share one common point: the fall of al-Assad and therefore turning the situation to their own benefit,” he further explained.
Salami finally pointed to the key role of the Israeli regime which, in his words, "is silently and ironically funneling millions of dollars to the rebels in Syria” and "is capitalizing enormously on the collapse of Bashar al-Assad government.”
"Syria has now turned into a nightmarishly humanitarian catastrophe lavishly brought about by the regional Arab puppet regimes, extremist Wahhabis, al-Qaeda, Washington and Israel," he concluded.
