The leader of the jihadist Syrian rebel group Jabhat Al-Nusra (Al-Nusra Front) has declared that his group is in favor of establishing an Islamic caliphate in civil war torn Syria.

Al-Nusra Front several months ago pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri and has been blacklisted by the United States and the United Nations as a terrorist again.

Julani attacked the Hizbullah terror group which is assisting Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in fighting the Syrian rebels, saying, “We thank Allah for the stupidity of the leader of this organization (Nasrallah) who revealed the organization’s disguised hatred against Sunni Muslims.” ….

  1. An all-out war on Islam seems to be the solution. To differ between the “good” and the villainous Muslims don’t make sense. Everywhere ordinary people are asked about certain issues relating to accommodate Western living or their views on Israel or the Jews in general you’ll get degrading answers and outright hatred.
    The Islamic culture is pre-science, anti-intellectual, power is right, hierarchical, and furthermore anti-Semitic. As a special treat, (absent from Nazism and Communism) the culture shows an extreme degrading view on women.
