Assad: Some refugees are ‘definitely’ terrorists

Rebel Staff

The notorious Syrian dictator President Bashar al-Assad has told Yahoo News that some of the 4.8 million refugees escaping war-torn Syria are ‘definitely’ terrorists

In an exclusive interview with Michael Isikoff from inside the presidential palace in Damascus, Assad was asked if some of those who fled are "aligned with terrorists". In response, Assad said:

“Definitely, definitely… You can find it on the Net. Those terrorists in Syria, holding the machine gun or killing people, they [appear as] peaceful refugees in Europe or in the West.”

When pressed to put a number on this assertion, the Syrian president, himself an exceptionally barbarous leader, purportedly responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Syrians, responded by saying that “no-one has any number”.

Assad went on, however: “Because no-body knows all the terrorists to give a percentage […] You don’t need a significant number to commit atrocities.”

He pointed out that “only 15 terrorists” were responsible for murdering 2,977 people in the 9/11 attacks — there were 19 attackers in total, according to reports.

Since the Syrian civil war began in 2011, the country has been home to various warring factions, including, but not limited to, the terror organizations of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (Front for the Conquest of Syria/the Levant) and factions of Al-Qaeda.

The brutal dictator of Syria has more sense than our shiny pony.

Sometimes the villains give the best advice.

That sounds about right Deborah. He is a trouble maker that Erdogan. He and sons buy cheap cheap oil from ISIS. Stolen from areas of ISIS controlled Syria.(speaking of wars being about oil)
This article was written when we still believed the moderate rebel forces ‘were non ISIS

The refugees are the rebels.

Erdogan is going to take Assad out, so he can put the Muslim Brotherhood in charge.

Good points Glenn.
We have been fighting WITH ISIS via the ‘moderate rebels" against Assad and he and Russia know it. Taking Assad out would be a terrible mistake. More people would die and ISIS would move right in to fill the void.
As an ally, our tax dollars contributed to some of that backwards activity. Can you believe it , Canada had a hand in funding ISIS (and I’m not talking about the money laundering being done through our muslim associations to Hamas and Hezbollah).

Gadhafi warned the West that he was the only thing keeping the radicals at bay in Libya. Well we know how that turned out. Same with Assad. Ignore him at our peril , irrespective of his irrefutable reputation as a butcher.
All I know is that we should not have any of our soldiers over there in harms way when strong young men of fighting age are coming here to live off the system. and possibly be planted as moles in our cities.

HARLEY MCCARTNEY commented 9 mins ago. Stated,

How about the tax deduction you just took away from our Canadian arm forces because their job was not dangerous enough.

To this I will state;

Trudeau works in strange ways, Allah understands.

Terrorist’s or not, once the call for Jihad is made, they will all become the killers of persons who have a lighter colored skin than Theirs. It is the will of Allah.
According to the Quran.

Thanks for all the refugees Trurdo this will come back to haunt you. Millions for your mussie friends.
You cant buy enough votes. Canadians will get rid of you in 2019.
How about a raise for our old people. How about the tax deduction you just took away from our Canadian arm forces because their job was not dangerous enough. Nice long lines at the hospital youve created. Waiting times for health care increased. Shove your carbon tax.

Meanwhile in Canada we are thinking of crushing free speech to protect a religion that is so beyond the pale, so perverse, so disgusting that it needs government protection so people do not call it out for what it is.

While fishing through the Podesta e-mails at WIKILEAKS I came across one that acknowledged the Obama regieme knew full well that the fall of the Assad regieme would mean the genocide of the Allowites and several other ethnic minorities and they were OK with it. People hanged for much less at Nuremburg.

“He bombed his own people” say the propagandists among his enemies….well

Abraham Lincoln authorized a naval bombardment of the streets of New York and dispatched the troops freshly returned from Gettysburg to put down the conscription riots with artillary, volley shot and bayonets….such is the nature of civil war. And the American Civil War was not a proxy war fought by foreign soldiers of fortune.
