U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Friday, 14/02/2014 that “President Barack Obama had again asked for U.S. policy options in Syria, but none have yet been presented to him.” Kerry told reporters, “Obama is concerned about the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Syria and also that the peace talks between the opposition and the government had not produced a discussion of a transitional government as has been planned.” Kerry said, “As a result of that, Obama has asked all of us to think about various options that may exist or may not exist.”
It appears that Kerry and his President, Obama, are confused of the options available to subjugate ash-Sham revolution:
– The political solution stew is being prepared in the Geneva negotiations between America and his cronies of the criminal regime of Bashar, and the so-called political opposition represented by the National Coalition led by Jarba… Everyone, the distant and the near, knows for sure that Bashar does not reject any order from America, not in the handing over of the chemical weapons, nor in the slaughter of the revolting people in Syria. Also, everyone knows that Robert Ford is the guardian of the Coalition, which he created with his own hands. Hence, the Coalition would have only to obey the wishes of the High Commissioner in anticipation of a post thrown to them in the post- Assad era, as Britain did with the so-called Sharif Hussein and his son Faisal, in the distribution of the spoils after the demolition of the Khilafah state.
– Whereas, the actual negotiation is taking place in the fields of Syria, where Obama is confused in the adoption of the options necessary to impose its solution on the honorable and the firm revolution of ash-Sham: should he resort to Scud Missiles, or to explosive barrels, or to chemical weapons? Or is Iran, and its followers who raise the Karbala Revolution slogan against injustice and evil-doers, able to subdue the revolutionaries of ash-Sham for Uncle Sam (who was quick to extend a lifeline to the Iranian regime through the nuclear deal and began pumping hundreds of millions of dollars to the treasury of Iran to be able to finance its war in Syria), under the banner of combatting apostasy (Takfir) terrorism?
– But the answer came in Dar’aa: Added to the above-mentioned options, are car bombs exploding in crowds of Friday worshipers coming out of the prayer; as happened yesterday in the town of Yadodeh- Daraa, where the regime’s agents planted a car bomb that exploded after Friday prayers leading to the martyrdom of 32 worshipers and wounding dozens, some of whom are in critical condition.
– And we do not rule out that among the options is issuing out of Fatwas from some of the ‘Sheikhs’ on the prohibition of turning against the guardian (Wali ul Amr). When the political stew is cooked with Washington all that is needed is a fatwa from the Saudi intelligence and needs only the guardian’s initiation. While, the call to swear allegiance to a Khaleefah who governs by the Laws of Allah and end the bloodshed in the land blessed by the Truthful, the Almighty, in ash-Sham, is “a blind sedition “Fitnah”” that the scholars of Sultan distant themselves from it for fear of angering the Wali ul Amr. Whereas, defying the Lord of the universe is subject to considerations by them; they are keen to “life”, whatever the state of humiliation and indignation of the Mighty.
There is good atop good in all this; the ash-Sham revolution has exposed the truth about the American enmity for Muslims, and the truth of its production in the coalition, and the hypocrisy of the Iranian regime, the owner of “the Great Satan slogan”. It also revealed the quackery of the “sheikhs” of the Gulf, who croak and give fatwas only to the satisfaction of their Wali ul Amr, which lead to their destruction in the world and the Hereafter…
The Ummah’s only option is to derive the reasons for victory from the Causer of the reasons, and beseech in sincere servitude and submission to the Lord of the Worlds, and then to engage in the hard and glorified work with the faithful to establish the second Khilafah on the method of Prophethood… The Lord of Glory says and His Saying is the truth:
وَمَا النَّصْرُ إِلاَّ مِنْ عِندِ اللّهِ الْعَزِيزِ الْحَكِيمِ
“And victory is not except from Allah, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.”
And the promise of the Truthful, the Glorified:
وَلَقَدْ كَتَبْنَا فِي الزَّبُورِ مِن بَعْدِ الذِّكْرِ أَنَّ الْأَرْضَ يَرِثُهَا عِبَادِيَ الصَّالِحُونَ

The rebel Free Syrian Army has fired Selim Idriss as its military chief calling him “ineffective” and lacking in experience to lead military operations on the ground.
In a video broadcast on the internet on Sunday, the rebel coalition said its military council had decided to replace Idriss with Brigadier General Abdel al-Ilah al-Bachir.
Colonel Qassem Saadeddine said the decision was taken due to “the paralysis within the military command these past months”.
A source inside the Syrian opposition told AFP news agency that Idriss, who was appointed to the role in December 2012, had faced criticism for failings on the battlefield.
Al Jazeera’s Omar Al Saleh reporting from Istanbul said the Supreme Military Council said Idriss was “ineffective” and “lacked the military experience to run operations on the ground.”
They also said he had bad relations with other rebel forces fighting on the ground.
“Combined with the failure of the Geneva talks, the head of the Syrian National Coalition returned to Syria and promised rebels in Idlib that they would soon be receiving more weapons and support,” added Al Jazeera’s reporter.
This restructuring is intended to raise morale amongst the FSA, once the country’s strongest armed opposition force but now increasingly becoming marginalised by rival groups.
It has been weakened by internal rifts and by competition from other rebel coalitions such as the Islamic Front, a powerful alliance formed last year that is now the largest rebel force with tens of thousands of fighters.
In December the United States and Britain suspended non-lethal aid to the FSA, dealing a major blow to a group that appears caught between advancing regime forces and the increasingly unified Islamic Front.
Salim Idris fired from SNC and replaced by Abdullah al-Bashir, the head of Quneitra Mil Council.

Exclusive information obtained by Al Arabiya News Channel has revealed the identities of the top field commanders running the Islamist militant group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
The six individuals who have been at the helm of the terror group are from Iraq, Deputy Minister of Iraq’s Interior Ministry Adnan al-Asadi told Al Arabiya in an exclusive interview to be aired on Friday.
At least three of them served in Saddam Hussein’s army while others were previously detained in Iraq and upon their release they joined the war in Syria.
1- Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
His real name is Ibrahim al-Badri, also formerly known as Abu Douaa, was a lecturer of Islamic studies and an Imam at mosques in Bagdad and Falluja before he was detained by American forces on June 4, 2004. After his release three years later, he established the “Sunni Army” militia and joined al-Qaeda. He became the group’s third in command following the death of Abu Omar al-Baghdadi.
2- Abu Ayman al-Iraqi
Al-Iraqi is one of the main leaders of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and a member of the organization’s military council. He previously worked as a colonel in Iraq’s air defense intelligence under Saddam Hussein, during which time he was nicknamed Abu Muhannad al-Suweidawi. He was detained for three years in 2007. Following his release, he moved to Syria and is currently commanding ISIS fighters in the cities of Edlib, Aleppo and the mountains of Lattakia.
3- Abu Ahmad al-Alwani
A former member of Saddam’s army, al-Alwani is currently a member of the ISIS military council. His real name is Waleed Jassem al-Alwani.
4- Abu Abdulrahman al-Bilawi
Al-Bilawi was one of the four members of the ISIS military council and former head of the group’s Shura council. Hailing from al-Khalidiya in Iraq’s Anbar province, he was detained on Jan. 27, 2005 in the American military detention center, Camp Bucca. He was later killed in al-Khalidiya, Anbar. His real name was Adnan Ismael Najm.
5- Haji Bakr
Bakr was a former officer in Saddam’s army, charged with handling the development of weapons. He was later imprisoned at Camp Bucca and joined al-Qaeda after his release. Bakr was reportedly the strongest ISIS commander in Syria up until his recent death. His real name was Samir Abd Mouhammad al-Khleifawi.
6- Abu Fatima al-Jaheishi
Al-Jaheishi was initially in charge of the ISIS operations in southern Iraq before he moved to the northern city of Kirkuk. His real name is Ni’ma Abd Nayef al-Jabouri.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) had claimed responsibility for a brazen attack on Abu Ghraib and Taji prisons on July 22, 2013 that led to the escape of hundreds of militants, many of whom were members of al-Qaeda.
A government statement pointed to collusion between jail staff and the militants who attacked the jails.
Several months after the incident, questions linger about how a handful of armed men could break into Iraq’s most guarded prisons without the help of the security services working for Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, a staunch ally of Iran and the Assad’s regime in Syria.
Recent reports have also established links between ISIS and the Syrian regime. According to documents revealed by the Syrian National Coalition, several field commanders of the al-Qaeda affiliate were former military or intelligence officers of the Syrian army.
These commanders have been coordinating military operations with the Assad’s forces, providing them with information about rebel fighters and facilitating the recapture of areas previously controlled by the rebel Free Syrian Army.
Rebel raids on ISIS camps turned out further corroborations on the alleged ties. Similar weapons and ammunition used by the Syrian regime forces were also found at the al-Qaeda camp in Raqqa province, according to opposition sources.
Syrian security identification cards and passports with entry and exit stamps to Iran were also seized during the raids on ISIS camps.
The latest reports came days after U.S. Treasury Department suggested last week that Assad’s ally Iran has allowed al-Qaeda militants to enter Syria.
The Geneva 2 conference has raised the stature of the Syrian regime and despite being engaged in the most brutal crimes against the Syrian people that have included every imaginable evil against the whole people including their children, women and elderly they have been presented as equal partners in these negotiations.
This current conference ended without any results or resolutions and was reported by news agencies to have ended in argument and sharp disagreement whilst Lakhdar Ibrahimi said that the talks were planned to resume on February the 10th. This indicates that the US and all those who support the unified position which has clearly established the aim of preserving the regime whilst bringing in some new faces from the supposed opposition, it indicates that they are not in a rush to see these negotiations come to a quick resolution. This is clear by the relaxed attitude of the Syrian regime which is speaking and acting as if no pressure is upon them.
It must be clear in everybody’s mind that both sides in these negotiations are firmly in the American camp. The regime has been protected up until now and been allowed to continue in its slaughters and merciless war against the Syrian people without facing any serious challenge or obstacles from outside. Indeed the policy of chemical weapon destruction has allowed Syria more time to fight the revolutionaries bringing as much slaughter, death, destruction and starvation as it desires whilst all world leaders can talk about is getting both sides to the table. They have even managed to turn the focus to fighting terrorism and raised that to a higher priority than removing or stopping the Asad regime!
The Syrian National Coalition on the other hand have already conceded that the regime will pretty much remain in place but have been promised by America that they will have a future in the rule. As such they are eager for the transition to take place however the US will continue to tell them that they are doing everything they can and that they need to remain patient until their promises come into fruition.
Whilst the US and the world behind it continue to play the games of Geneva and their like they will continue to attempt to weaken the revolutionaries on the ground by instigating fighting between the factions and by trying to divide them upon lines of being moderate and extremist. They will use their agents from inside and outside including the rulers of Turkey, Saudi, Kuwait, Iran, Jordan and Iraq to assist them in this, in addition to relying upon the media to focus on the real problem and enemy in Syria which is terrorism and Al-Qaeda etc…
When the US decides that the groundwork has been accomplished sufficiently inside Syria and outside Syria, it will quickly apply the required direction and pressure upon the Syrian regime and the opposition who will obey the commands of their master just as quickly and a resolution will be made which will be sanctioned by the world and declared as a groundbreaking peace deal. Anyone who then rejects this will then be labelled legally by the UN and by the media as an enemy of peace or extremist or terrorist and the whole world including the new Syrian regime (which will in reality still be the same old regime with a few new faces) will then declare a unified war against them in the name of peace.
This is the plan of the disbelieving US colonialist and the world order that it leads that gives no value to human life and the only justice they believe in is the one that guarantees that their interests will be preserved and their influences maintained to continue to control and exploit the Muslim lands. The Syrian regime is a secular regime and the US manufactured opposition represented in the Syrian National Coalition are calling for a secular regime and the whole world is unified and striving with all their efforts to derail the revolution in Syria which declared war on secularism, colonialism and the policies of Sykes and Picot and declared their allegiance to Allah (swt) and his Messenger (saw).
This is the plan of the enemies of Islaam and the Muslims but:
وَيَمْكُرُونَ وَيَمْكُرُ اللَّهُ وَاللَّهُ خَيْرُ الْمَاكِرِينَ
And they plot and Allah plots (as well) and Allah is the best of plotters (Al-Anfaal 30).
However the Muslims in Ash-Shaam have proven that they will not be an easy push over and even if the world as a whole has united against them and their revolution. There may be some who will compromise, make concessions and fall into the clutches of the enemy and indeed some already have but this revolution was established upon the basis of reliance upon Allah alone when they threw away the flags of Sykes Picot and raised the banner of Islaam and said: ‘O Allah we have none other than you O Allah’ and ‘We will never bow down to other than Allah’ and ‘Our leader forever is Muhammad Rasoolullah’. This revolution was for Islaam and you O Muslims of Ash-Shaam have sacrificed everything for the sake of Allah so we ask Allah (swt) to reward you with the highest rewards and to magnify them and we ask Allah (swt) to make you strong and firm on your Deen and to never compromise it and not even by a hairs breadth. If you do this then you will have the greatest abode awaiting you in the hereafter and you will also be hastening the downfall, demise and collapse of the enemies of the Deen by the permission of Allah (swt). On that day the believers will rejoice and their breasts will be healed when they hear the news of Allah’s victory that he has given to His servants with the reestablishment of His Deen, Shari’ah and Khilafah upon the path of the Prophethood.
In regards to the believers He (swt) said:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آَمَنُوا إِنْ تَنْصُرُوا اللَّهَ يَنْصُرْكُمْ وَيُثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَكُمْ
O You who believe! If you support Allah he will support you and make your foothold firm (Muhammad 7).
And in regards to Himself (swt) He said:
وَاللَّهُ غَالِبٌ عَلَى أَمْرِهِ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
And Allah has full power and control over His Affairs, but most of men know not (Yusuf 21).

(Taken from Al-Waie in English and more)
More than twenty months of siege for thirteen neighborhoods of Homs city , after a thousand martyrs and hundreds of wounded and starving innocent people ( woman ,children and elderly ).. , under international inaction and complicity in supporting Al-Assad regime and complete silence about our siege. , the Ambassador of U.S.A government Robert Ford showed up at this time and called us via mediator two days before the conference of Genève asking us to issue a statement from inside the besieged areas begging his magnificence and the Syrian Coalition as well .
Despite our known that it’s only a Political maneuver aimed at gaining time until accept Geneva, we signed on such a statement and we gave them 48 hours to reveal the falsity of their claim , but it seems that Mr. Ford don’t want for the wounded to get out from inside siege nor for the humanitarian aids to enter into the siege without a Deal where we sell our revolution in the market of Geneva…
We would like to say to the High Representative Robert Ford that our people become convinced that yourselves and your government are the protectors of the Syrian regime and its sponsors, and that Assad and his mercenaries (Chabbiha) were not able to dare to this crime without your orders and political coverage, so it’s time to your government to know and believe that our people will not sell his religion nor revolution whatever he sacrifices of souls, our ALLAH is our helper and Allah is perfecting His Light even though the disbelievers hate .

#Syria #Geneva2: Syrian National Coalition announces its separation from the Syrian people and Dedicates its Loyalty to America by accepting Geneva 2
As expected, the miserable National Coalition headed by Al-Jarba, submitted to external pressures especially America and Russia to attend the meeting of its General Assembly in Istanbul on the 17th and 18th January 2014 CE. It accepted participation in the Geneva II Conference held on the 22nd January, despite the conspiracy by everyone in broad daylight against the Muslims of Syria; adding itself openly and officially to the list of co-conspirators, and undertaking the dirty role ascribed to it, to keep the rule of Syria under the hands of America; of which the expense will be the transition of power from Assad to Al-Jarba, who will receive the orders of America instead. The first of which will be the task of fighting the Islamic project. This was the focus of Assad, Iran, Russia and Western countries as well as the rulers of the Muslims, and even Al-Jarba and his mentor who taught him “magic”, the Communist Michel Kilo, who had said of the armed fundamentalist groups and the extent of their danger: “It is a fatal mistake to ignore them.”
On this central subject, Kerry recently said: “The conference will discuss the fight against terrorism as a priority in the agenda at hand.” And it could be argued that the most important at this conference are two issues: keep power in Syria under the hands of America, and to strike a fatal blow to the Islamic project which is represented by the establishment of the Khilafah system in Syria. This was announced by both impostors: the Foreign Minister of Syrian criminality, Al-Mu’alim, and the impudent Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov, who confirmed this in more than one statement. The announcement of the approval of the National Coalition to attend Geneva II was accompanied by the news that the administration of President Barack Obama asked the Congress to study the allocation of nearly $50 million dollars for potential international peacekeepers in Syria in the annual budget framework. This indicates that the approval of the coalition may be obtained by America before the announcement, and that the approval is going according to the road map of the American solution, and this solution is to send international forces to be effective on the ground, as mentioned by Ibrahimi before, to be along the lines of the international forces in Afghanistan, ISAF the multinational US-led, and which carries out multi-purpose dirty roles, which include: the protection of the rule of the new “Karzai” of Syria, and strike the Islamic project which is pursued everywhere under the pretext of fighting terrorism.
America is pursuing the awakening of Muslims throughout the world and is working to distort and strike it. We can see the tragedies of Muslims that are widespread throughout the world. It dragged with it countries around the world including the Muslim rulers and now it is Syria’s turn. The issue is bigger than Syria; it is about bringing the Islamic project in Syria to an end, and to abort it before its birth. From here, they want to repeat the bitter experience of Afghanistan, and to indulge in the blood of Muslims with a new alternative ruler under the pretext of fighting terrorism.
We turn to the members of the National Coalition, who still have some good in them to work to expose the conspiracy of the coalition against the Muslims, and to work to destroy it from the inside with all their strength, may Allah forgive them for their sin and of affiliation to the National American Coalition.
We also turn to the militant groups and to the components and the dissident army officers, we urge you not to respond to the invitation to join the national army, which America intends to create from your ranks in order to use you along with the international forces, just as in Afghanistan to strike all that stands in the face of its project, or those who seek to establish a Khilafah. And work to unite your forces under project that supports the establishment of the Khilafah State as is required of you by the Shari’ah, and just as the Ansar of Allah and His Messenger did, the first who Allah was pleased with.
We also turn to the Muslims in Syria of Ash-Sham in general and to the people of influence in particular, you are facing a universal conspiracy and severe deception. America, the number one enemy of Islam, backed by the international community chose a handful of amateurs in politics to be your representatives in the National Coalition, and they are far from being fit to represent you. You are believers who want the rule of Islam while they are secularists and they put their hands in the hands of America to strike the Islamic project. Even the Islamists from among them are upon the Western methodology. You have sacrificed blood and they traded with it. You suffer hardship of the siege and starvation, cold and fear, humiliation and death in the most horrific styles; they are languishing in hotels, they eat and become merry, if they appear on television screens they show sorrow and weep for you and compete with America in attacking the Islamic project. They side with the American camp against the camp of Islam and Muslims. As for what is required of you to do in the face of America’s plots and its allies against you, it is an essential matter. You are the popular base that has the first say in everything that happens, and you alone, so far, have exposed and defeated everyone who have a hand in the conspiracy against you, from the evil America, to its agent the butcher Bashar, to Iran’s intolerance, to Russia’s spitefulness, to the international community conspirator, to the treacherous rulers of the Muslims and especially Turkey, which is not far from you only a stone’s throw and the Gulf rulers who have warehouses stocked with weapons and ammunition, bought for hundreds of billions of dollars… And you have foiled all sly efforts and those continuously conspired against you, you can proclaim that you are against the Geneva II Conference, and you are against the American project and with the Islamic project, and that you are against the National Coalition and succumbing to the commands of America, and you are against the fighting that directs the weapons towards a Shari’ah prohibited target. And know that Allah سبحانه وتعالى has given you an opportunity to bring about change on the basis of the Islamic project and made the presence of the popular base emerge on the basis of Islam and the rule of Islam that the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم had worked to establish in Medina in which Musab (ra) told the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, “There is no house left in Medina that Islam is not mentioned in it.” And so is the case now in Syria, where there is no house left that the Khilafah and the rule of Islam is not mentioned in it.
O Muslims, believers in Syria of Ash-Sham: Hizb ut Tahrir in Syria, which is following the method of the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم to establish the Khilafah, calls upon the Muslims in Syria to take their stance in the process of Islamic change that is desired, and address the people of power to unite and direct their arms towards the state of disbelief and to establish the Khilafah state, which extends the hand to them to establish the command of Allah سبحانه وتعالى, He سبحانه وتعالى says:
يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اسْتَجِيبُوا لِلَّهِ وَلِلرَّسُولِ إِذَا دَعَاكُمْ لِمَا يُحْيِيكُمْ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ يَحُولُ بَيْنَ الْمَرْءِ وَقَلْبِهِ وَأَنَّهُ إِلَيْهِ تُحْشَرُونَ وَاتَّقُوا فِتْنَةً لَا تُصِيبَنَّ الَّذِينَ ظَلَمُوا مِنْكُمْ خَاصَّةً وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّ اللَّهَ شَدِيدُ الْعِقَابِ وَاذْكُرُوا إِذْ أَنْتُمْ قَلِيلٌ مُسْتَضْعَفُونَ فِي الْأَرْضِ تَخَافُونَ أَنْ يَتَخَطَّفَكُمُ النَّاسُ فَآوَاكُمْ وَأَيَّدَكُمْ بِنَصْرِهِ وَرَزَقَكُمْ مِنَ الطَّيِّبَاتِ لَعَلَّكُمْ تَشْكُرُونَ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا لَا تَخُونُوا اللَّهَ وَالرَّسُولَ وَتَخُونُوا أَمَانَاتِكُمْ وَأَنْتُمْ تَعْلَمُونَ وَاعْلَمُوا أَنَّمَا أَمْوَالُكُمْ وَأَوْلَادُكُمْ فِتْنَةٌ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ عِنْدَهُ أَجْرٌ عَظِيمٌ يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا إِنْ تَتَّقُوا اللَّهَ يَجْعَلْ لَكُمْ فُرْقَانًا وَيُكَفِّرْ عَنْكُمْ سَيِّئَاتِكُمْ وَيَغْفِرْ لَكُمْ وَاللَّهُ ذُو الْفَضْلِ الْعَظِيمِ
“You who have iman! Respond to Allah and to the Messenger when He calls you to what will bring you to life! Know that Allah intervenes between a man and his heart and that you will be gathered to Him. Be fearful of trials which will not afflict solely those among you who do wrong. Know that Allah is severe in retribution. When you were few and oppressed in the land, afraid that the people would snatch you away, He gave you refuge and supported you with His help and provided you with good things so that hopefully you would be thankful. You who have iman! Do not betray Allah and His Messenger, and do not knowingly betray your trusts. Know that your wealth and children are a trial and that there is an immense reward with Allah. You who have iman! If you have taqwa of Allah, He will give you discrimination and erase your bad actions from you and forgive you. Allah’s favour is indeed immense.”
O Allah, we ask you for your victory, support, cunningness and your power and rule and to bestow upon us a rightly guided Khilafah to change the situation to the better. Ameen.
