Terrorist free-for-all on all sides of the Islamonazi divide.
Interesting analysis for the Norwegian paper, here is some of it translated.
THEN THE Shiite Islamist movement of Hezbollah was formed in 1982, with the main reason to fight the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, fighting against the Israeli state and “liberate” Jerusalem. Support it received from Syria and especially Iran, made it possible for the Islamist group to force Israel out of Lebanon in 2000.
Today Hezbollah must pay the price for the foreign aid. Iranian authorities and probably Syrian, has forced Hezbollah fighters to fight in Syria, to keep the faltering dictator Bashar Assad in power. And not enough with that, the Shiite fighters are also in conflict with Sunni Islamists, primarily represented by the increasingly effective al-Nusret-front fighting against Assad and his regime. Israel is still the main enemy, but now Hezbollah is fighting on two fronts.
THE SIZE of Hezbollah’s presence in Syria is uncertain, but some argue that it is about several thousand fighters. They are concentrated around the border with Lebanon, but will also have a presence elsewhere in the country. Whatever the increases are in the number. Over 130 Hezbollah fighters going to now be killed in the Syrian Civil War. While Hezbollah previously put up pictures of militiamen killed in the struggle against Israel, it now pops up posters showing victims who have fallen in Syria.
It should have been a split within the Hezbollah leadership on Syria-presence, and it’s no wonder. First and foremost, the Shiite Islamists established itself as the strongest political and military force in Lebanon, and they have no desire for their country to become involved in the Syrian conflict, not least because it may lead to a flare up of the Lebanese civil war again. But while Hezbollah fears that Assad will fall, there then will be no help from Syria and no transit route for arms from Iran.
Hezbollah is also concerned that al-Nusret-front looks to establish itself in Lebanon. When there was fighting between a secular PLO group and Palestinian Islamists in refugee camp Ein el-Helweh in March, it was alleged that fighters from al-Nusret-front had fought on the Palestinian Islamist side. This was denied by the PLO, but not everyone believes it. For it is said by several sources that al-Nusret, which is considered part of the al-Qaeda network, has also gained a foothold in other Palestinian refugee camps in Lebanon, especially in the Tripoli area in the north. Al-Nusret has threatened to burn down Beirut if Hezbollah will not get out of Syria.
TRIPOLI HAS BEEN an area of conflict in Lebanon because of the Syrian Civil War. There should be between 40 000 and 60 000 Alawite in this area, many of whomtheir religious beliefs trap support for Assad, not least for fear of what happens if there is regime change in Syria. But it is not only Alawite involving them. Sunni Muslims are in the majority in Tripoli, supporting the rebellion against Assad and hope that sunnimajoriteten in Syria comes to power there. That is why the Sunni and Alawite militias have come into armed conflict in and around Tripoli.
Perhaps the most worrisome is that many of those involved in the Sunni groups profess to militant Islamism and supporting al-Qaeda. So we see black al-Qaeda flag coming to demonstrations, not only in Tripoli, but also in the capital of Beirut. Al-Nusret-front has progressed in Syria, where the al-Qaeda network has access to weapons, troops and money. It also seems to be more united than the internationally recognized free Syrian army FSA. At the beginning of this month took al-Nusret control over part of the Palestinian Yarmouk refugee camp outside Damascus. A number of Palestinians who will be involved in the Syrian civil war, fled.
