From Reuters today:
Saudi Arabia is pushing the U.N. General Assembly’s human rights committee to condemn Iranian and Russian intervention in Syria, a move that prompted complaints on Tuesday from the delegations of Iran and Syria.
The non-binding draft resolution, prepared by Saudi Arabia and co-sponsored by Qatar and other Arab nations, the United States, Britain, France and other Western powers, was presented during a meeting of the assembly’s Third Committee, which focuses on human rights.
In addition, without mentioning Russia specifically, the draft “strongly condemns all attacks against the Syrian moderate opposition and calls for their immediate cessation, given that such attacks benefit so-called ISIL (Daesh) and other terrorist groups, such as al Nusra Front.”
As repeatedly documented by Infowars.com and others, virtually none of the mercenaries in Syria are “moderate” and are in fact radical jihadists intent on imposing sharia law and establishing a Wahhabi principality in the country. Declassified US Defense Intelligence Agency documents from 2012 reveal this is the game plan.
The language is aimed at Russia, which has been bombing [Saudi and U.S.-backed jihadist] opposition forces in Syria for over a month. Moscow says it is attacking Islamic State but Western officials say over 80 percent of its strikes hit other [Saudi and U.S.-backed jihadist] rebel forces, include Western-backed ones.
The resolution would also condemn the presence in Syria of “all foreign terrorist fighters … and foreign forces fighting on behalf of the Syrian regime, particularly the al Quds Brigades, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (of Iran) and militia groups, such as Hezbollah.”
There is no mention of foreign mercenaries from Arab world, Western Europe, Kazakhstan and Indonesia fighting with the jihadists trying to over throw the government of Bashar al-Assad. The United Nations has yet to condemn this violation of Syrian sovereignty.
Foreign fighters are streaming into Syria and Iraq in unprecedented numbers to join the Islamic State or other extremist groups, including at least 3,400 from Western nations among 20,000 from around the world, U.S. intelligence officials say in an updated estimate of a top terrorism concern.
Also well documented is the fact Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Turkey have supported ISIS.
Iraq intelligence has repeatedly shown how the United States supplies the Islamic State, but this is rarely if ever mentioned by the establishment media.
The call for a United Nations resolution drafted by Saudi Arabia and supported by the United States, Britain, France and other Western powers reveals just how desperate they are now that Syria with the help of Russia is turning around the “Syrian Civil War” instigated by the United States government and its partners.
