According to reports, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the Protestors in Syria calling them the “enemies of Allah”. Not only that, he has ordered Iran’s Revolutionary Guards and the Lebanese Hezbollah (which receive Iranian support) to actually do armed battle with protestors in order to help save the Syrian government.
Reliable sources say that Khamenei recently held a secret meeting in Tehran with his commanders, along with representatives of the Syrian government, members of Hezbollah, and leaders of the Sadr movement to help plan the eradication of the Syrian opposition movement.
Syria is close ally to Iran and has provided several bases for the Iranian Revolutionary Guards to use in training and arming militias like Hezbollah and Hamas. Plus the Syrian government has also provided a safe passageway for sending personnel and arms into Lebanon and the Palestinian territories. All of that would be in jeopardy if the present Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad should fall.
Response: All ‘in the name of Allah’? The Iranian’s are said to be behind the scenes aiding and abetting many of the protests and uprisings around the Middle East but not this one in Syria. The fact that the Ayatollah Khamenei would himself get involved in this highlights the real involvement of radical Islamists in the current Middle East and North African chaos.
It is not surprising that Khamenei would be against folks wanting greater freedom particularly in his own country or in Syria. Last year the governments of Iran, Syria, and Turkey signed a treaty supporting the eventual establishment of a new Islamic Caliphate.
Since then, Iran has been behind the attempted de-stabilization of many Middle Eastern and North African countries with an eye towards replacing governments with regimes that would be more receptive towards cooperating with the Iranian, Syrian, and Turkish dream of a new Muslim Caliphate. Obviously the Syrian freedom movement does not fit into those plans so they are obviously ‘enemies of Allah’ and must be eliminated? *Top
