An analyst says that the armed al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria are “defacto Israeli mercenaries”, trying to destabilize the country by “driving a wedge into the split” there in order to satisfy Israel’s regional interests.

In the latest development of the armed crisis in Syria, the Zionist regime’s fighter jets violated the Syrian airspace and bombarded a research center near the capital city of Damascus on Wednesday, January 30.

Meanwhile the Secretary of Iran Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Saeed Jalili condemned the raid saying that the Zionist regime of Tel Aviv will regret attacking Syria. Syria has been experiencing a foreign-sponsored armed rebellion since March 2011. Many people, including large numbers of security forces, have been killed in the fighting.

According to the Syrian government, the chaos is being orchestrated from outside of the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals belonging to the extremist and terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda and al-Nusra Front backed by some regional and Western countries.

To discuss the issue at hand, Press TV has conducted an interview with Mr. Kevin Barrett, with the Muslim-Jewish-Christian Alliance from the Iranian capital city of Tehran. He is joined by two additional guests on Press TV’s The Debate program: Eric Draitser, founder of stopimperialism.com from New York City and Richard Hellman, with the Middle East Research Center from Washington D.C. What follows is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: Mr. Kevin Barrett, what does the Israeli intervention in Syria, basically, mean to you? Some are saying that Israel is concerned, that President Assad is losing his grip on power, as a result on his country’s arsenal including the chemical weapons. Again the concerns that have been raised on the issue of Syria’s weapons and how this is going to affect the region and this is pointed out, rather, as a major concern for Israel and the United States.

Barrett: Well, I think that that is nonsense. The chemical weapons issue is disinformation. We have caught these al-Qaeda, so-called Syrian rebel groups funded by the Zionists and by the Saudis, making plans for false flag attacks with chemical weapons to be blamed on the Syrian government. So I do not think that that is the reason at all.

I think that this is a last ditch desperate act because they are not making any progress. The insurgency in Syria which is really more of a destabilization effort directed by foreigners is bogged down and I think what this attack on Damascus really reveals, is an amazing convergence between Israel and al-Qaeda. They seem to be on the same side, all the time.

Israel is destabilizing Syria, al-Qaeda is destabilizing Syria; Israel wants to undermine Lebanon, al-Qaeda undermines Lebanon. You know, al-Qaeda runs around attacking Muslims all over the world and Israel runs around attacking Muslims all over the world and it makes me wonder whether maybe Israel is actually just another branch of al-Qaeda.

So I think that I am going to write a letter to President Obama and ask him to consider a drone strike against the chief of the al-Qaeda branch of occupied Palestine, whose name happens to be Benjamin Netanyahu. – Full Story
