Fighters cite Jewish school attacker Mohamed Merah as inspiration

A French Surgeon who worked at a hospital in Aleppo admits that at least half of the militants he treated for injuries were Al-Qaeda terrorists whose goal is to impose sharia law across Syria and the whole region. These are the same rebels being funded to the tune of tens of million of dollars by the Obama administration.
During an interview with France Info, Jacques Bérès, founder of Doctors Without Borders, said that although the city of Aleppo is portrayed as a rebel stronghold, it still has many areas that are loyal to Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad.
Bérès added that most of the people he treated were fighters and relatively few were civilians or children. This contradicts the claim routinely made by establishment media outlets that the Syrian government is indiscriminately bombing its own citizens.
Asked if the fighters he treated were Jihadists or Salafists, Bérès responded, “I would say at least half of them are Salafist Jihadists with the headband with Quranic verses, even the cars transporting them had Al-Qaeda flags on them, and the Salafist look with the mustache gone while keeping a beard.”
Bérès explained that his job was to treat wounds and not to make judgments on political motivations. However, he revealed that some of the fighters were French jihadists, including two he talked with who said they saw Mohamed Merah, the Islamic terrorist who attacked and killed two French soldiers as well as three children at a Jewish day school in Toulouse earlier this year, as an “example to follow.”
Bérès said he found this conversation “a bit troubling,” adding that the goal of the militants is to impose sharia law and a global caliphate over Syria and the whole region.
As we reported last week, despite the fact that the Obama administration has sent Syrian rebels and their foreign cohorts over $76 million dollars in humanitarian aid, in addition to a further injection of funds and non-lethal weapons under a covert White House directive, opposition forces in both Aleppo and Homs were videotaped burning an American flag in the aftermath of the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.
As we have previously highlighted, Syrian rebel fighters are routinely photographed wearing the Al-Qaeda motif. There are also innumerable You Tube videos that show opposition forces flying the Al-Qaeda flag – the same distinctive black flag with white Arabic lettering that has been flown by rioters during anti-U.S. demonstrations in numerous countries over the last few weeks.
In July, the London Guardian reported that Al-Qaeda militants meet “every day” with Syrian rebels in order to train them how to build bombs. Syrian rebels have also attempted to use unwitting prisoners as suicide bombers.
The Obama administration has failed to condemn terrorist attacks carried out by Al-Qaeda militants and rebel fighters in Syria, and has in some cases all but welcomed them.
Given the political heat Obama is currently enduring due to his promise of bringing calm to the Middle East going up in flames, the fact that a huge proportion of the rebels fighting in Syria are not only foreigners but Al-Qaeda terrorists who have previously fought against U.S. troops is a major problem for Obama because it dismantles the geopolitical capital he has accrued by constantly citing the killing of Osama Bin Laden as an example of his success in the context of the war on terror.
