As reported by Salma Bouzid of Tusnisia Live, the Tunisian television show, Attasiaa Massaa, recently featured a clip of a young Tunisian man named Abou Zayd Attounssi who claims that he recently returned to Tunisia after fighting for eight months alongside the inappropriately named “Syrian rebels.”
Further supporting the fundamentalist nature of the majority of the members of the NATO death squads (aka rebels) operating in Syria, Attounssi stated that his initial reason for traveling to Syria to engage in murder, plunder, and torture against innocent people was because “he felt his religion required him to engage in jihad against ‘the enemy.’”
Although it was apparently not the killing that turned Attounssi off from the death squad movement, he nevertheless became disillusioned with it because, “most of the fighters within the Free Syrian army are fighting for the spoils of war and the foreign aid they supposedly get.”
Also featured on the show was the father of Hamza Rjeb, another former death squad member who is now disabled. Rjeb’s father claimed that “the Tunisian government should take full responsibility for his son’s situation and for allowing groups in the country to ‘brainwash’ his son.”
In an interview with Tunisia Live, Ahmed Youssef, a journalist described by Bouzid as “pro-Assad,” stated, “For every Tunisian fighter brought to Syria, Qatar pays 3,000 dollars to the Syrian rebels.” He also claimed that, “most of the Tunisians come from disadvantaged regions in Tunisia with low unemployment,” and stated that the Tunisians fighting in Syria are “considered mercenaries.” Youssef estimated that the number of Tunisian fighters wreaking havoc in Syria is more than 3,500.
While any occasion of violence is seized upon by the Western media to propagandize the alleged evils of the Assad regime and promote the position of the Syrian death squads, it has become increasingly obvious that rule by death squads is in direct contradiction to the desires of the Syrian people.
In addition, it has also become clear that the “rebel” movement is nothing more than mercenaries at best and al-Qaeda fanatics at worst. In reality, the death squads are made up of both elements – consisting almost entirely of foreigners who are aided, equipped, trained, and directed by Western intelligence agencies with funds and weapons funneled in through Gulf state feudal monarchies like Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Bahrain as well as “moral” support by Tunisia.
Likewise, states like Turkey and Jordan play key roles in the direction of the Syrian death squads by virtue of funneling weapons through the borders and providing intelligence and military strategies.
With each passing day, the narrative propagated by NATO forces, Western media, and the U.S. State Department becomes more readily transparent and openly fabricated. Even while Secretary of State and Skull and Bones member John Kerry continues to play the fraudulent story that Syrian death squads are actually peaceful protesters demanding democracy, the death squads themselves are doing everything in their power to declare their fanaticism and impose strict Sharia law upon any and all who are unfortunate enough (also see here) to find themselves under their control. Despite numerous propaganda pushes, even their Western directors could not stop the death squads from announcing their loyalty to the al-Nusra front and, hence, al-Qaeda.
Thus, the claim that Tunisian fighters are operating inside Syria as jihadists and mercenaries is by no means surprising. Indeed, such a claim merely stands as one more example of the true nature of the so-called rebels and the allegiances of Western powers.
