What she saw did not jibe with a "Free Syrian Army." They weren't Syrian and they didn't want freedom. "The only thing they talked about was killing and dying."
Syrian Army Major Ali Ali stated from his hospital bed "There is no fight for democracy going on here. They are trying to set us against each other. Under a smoke screen they come in and take over the country. We have NOTHING to hide. They use women and children as shields. Ask anyone in any hit area. We DON'T KILL OUR OWN."
Bassam Abu Abdullah, Director of the Damascus Center for Strategic Studies stated- "This is the Islamic Blackwater. There is a company called Black Water; murderers for hire. Now we have an Islamic Blackwater; killers for hire. Give them money and they go and kill."
The Syrian Free Army to date is made up of irreconcilable fractures. According to Dr. Abdullah the Blackwater component is Al Qaeda. "Al Qaeda is both used and targeted by the US. When Al Qaeda was found to be terrorizing Syria, the US distanced itself from it. Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey took over its support."
Another faction is the Wahhabi element. They don't recognize any other Islam; all different Muslim sects are heretical and must be executed. A quick look at writing across Islam, even across the Web shows that they are seen as ultra violent and in the words of Orthodox Muslim sects; Wahhabis are rabidly violent. Regardless where you look the view is close to static.
It is estimated that these two factions compose 70-80% of the Free Syrian Army.
The Free Syrian Army has been compared to water and oil with regard to its ability and intent to come under any government. Some are professional mercenaries, and others are professional jihadists that want their place in a martyr's heaven. For them it is to death.- It's from the Wahhabis we know of 70 virgins for a martyrs death.
"Uniting with wahhabis is impossible until they completely abandon wahhabism. Without that Muslims are still a mushriks in the eyes of wahhabism and its permissible to shed muslim blood and the books of the wahhabi elders are filled with this. Wahhabism would continue to be influenced by these elders unless they abandon it completely and uniting with these people are dangerous as you don't when they will go mad like a rabid dog and kill you."

The accomplishments of the Free Syrian Army to date include; burning down 1550 schools, raiding and destroying hospitals, churches, mosques, kidnapping and murder- especially among the Muslim population. Let's not forget suicide bombing of buses and population centers.
News reports show they are crossing the Turkish border and kidnapping Syrian refugees. They recently announced the demand for weapons or they "will become" TERRORISTS!
Their own video of kidnappings and murders can be viewed on their YouTube and Facebook pages.
It is evident that most of the targets right now are Christian in neighborhoods such as Jarmana. The reason is simple. The Wahhabi faction needs to take care of the enemy that won't convert first. They can then focus on the Muslims who won't agree with their direction and also won't convert to Wahhabism. The frightened will agree with their direction.
This religion is not natural to Syria and it is non-negotiable. They have no interest in a representative government.
In a parting statement the last Syrian interviewee stated "Don't let the worlds care for the Syrian people destroy the Syrian people."
Six days ago I was fortunate enough to see this Documentary Entitled "Syria-War and Faith." This narrative was translated from that.
It was "prepared by the Department for External Church Relations of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and the TV channel NTN, which is part of the media group "Inter."The documentary team consisted of producer and director Uri Molchanov, producer Victor Frolov, Vadim Revuna, accompanied by Fr Zacharias Kerstyuk.
