Who Really Used Chemical Weapons? -  Intifada Palestine

04. Sep, 2013


By Dr. Elias Akleh          Intifada Palestine 

The realities of the American humanitarian hypocrisy, political terrorism and warmongering have been clearly demonstrated in Obama’s August 31st speech about his decision to punish the Syrian government for its alleged and unsubstantiated use of chemical weapons calling it the worst chemical weapons attack of the 21st century. Obama is ignoring the fact that the US has the worst documented record of chemical, biological and nuclear weapons attacks throughout the whole human history.

The pro-Zionist US officials, the likes of Jewish Vice President Joe Biden, Senator John McCain, Senator Lindsey Graham, and Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel,  have been launching for some time a political terror campaign threatening to hit Syria, a UN country member, in violation of the international law, accusing it of slaughtering its own citizens and using chemical weapons without any definite evidence. This is an international crime since their threats are disrupting world peace and world economy.

Obama’s claim that “the US presented a powerful case that the Syrian government was responsible for this attack (chemical weapons attack of August 21st) on its own people” does not stand any ground since it lacks any credible evidence. Speaking to PBS NewsHour Wednesday night (8/28) Obama stressed that the US has definitively “concluded” the Assad regime used chemical weapons. Yet he did not present any evidence to substantiate this conclusion. The trove of evidence, including blood, tissue, and soil samples, the US, Britain and France had supplied to the UN as a prove that the Syrian troops used nerve agent sarin, was unverifiable and criticized by independent European experts, who questioned the nature of the physical evidence due to the secrecy of how it was collected and analyzed (Washington Post)

It was revealed by the Guardian that “the bulk of evidence proving the Assad regime’s deployment of chemical weapons … has been provided by Israeli military intelligence…” According to the Guardian “Senior Israeli security officials arrived in Washington on Monday (8/26) to share the latest results of intelligence-gathering, and to review the Syrian crisis with national security adviser Susan Rice.”

In its August 27th edition the Jewish-owned The Times of Israel has confirmed that Israeli intelligence has been behind the reports of Syria’s alleged chemical attack. It also revealed that “Israeli intelligence seen as central to US case against Syria”, and confirmed the Guardian’s report that “a large delegation of senior Israeli security officials is currently in Washington holding talks with top administration officials led by US National Security Adviser Susan Rice.”   This senior Israeli military team is reported to consist of Israeli national security adviser Yaakov Amidror, senior Israeli defense minister Major General Amos Gilad, the head of military planning directorate Nimrod Sheffer, and the head of Israeli military intelligence research branch General Itai Brun.

This so-called evidence incriminating Syrian government has been supplied by proven Israeli liars, who had submitted in the past the fabricated evidence of Niger uranium for Iraq’s nuclear weapons and of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction that led to Iraq’s invasion and devastation.

There are many evidences and proofs that the American/Israeli/British/French/Turkish/Qatari/Saudi financed, trained and armed anti-Syrian terrorists have used chemical weapons against Syrian troops as well as against civilians in an attempt to frame the Syrian government and to give the UNSC justification to authorize attacks on Syria.

It was reported by the Lebanese al-Akhbar newspaper that the chemical materials used by anti-Syrian terrorist in Khan al-Assal area in Aleppo last march was transferred by two Qatari officers; Major Fahd Saeed al-Hajiri and Captain Faleh Bin Khalid al-Tamimi, across Turkey with the knowledge of Ankara. The two Qatari officials were reported killed by a suicide bombing in Mogadishu, Somalia, while recruiting terrorist fighters to send to Syria.

The BBC World News had reported that “Just like Iraq: US arms butchers who use chemical weapons on civilians, and then tries to frame someone else”. In its video report the UN human rights investigator Carla del Ponte confirmed that Syrian militants had used the deadly nerve agent sarin.  In another interview with Swiss radio del Ponte reiterated that “According to the testimonies we have gathered, the rebels have used chemical weapons, making use of sarin gas” Sarin is a powerful neurotoxin developed by Nazi scientists in the 1930s. It was sold to Iraq’s Saddam Hussein by Donald Rumsfeld to be used against Iranian troops and Kurdish residents of the village of Halabja in 1988.

Even Israeli newspapers, such as Haaretz, had reported that “Jihadists, not Assad, apparently behind reported chemical attack in Syria” according to intelligence reports. The analysis states that “The rebels in Syria that the US has been arming and otherwise supporting are Al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood.  Unfortunately, history is repeating.  Specifically, the American government gave chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein … which he then used on Iran and on his own Kurdish population.  The American government attempted to blame Iran for the chemical weapons attack on Iraq’s Kurds … just as the US is trying to blame the Syrian government for the attacks in Syrian.”

When the Turkish-based anti-Syrian terrorists suffered a lot of casualties last May and were not satisfied with the level of support they were receiving from Turkey and from Western countries, they resorted to false flag terrorist bombing against Turkish citizens like the twin car bombing in Reyhanli and the sarin chemical gas attack on Adana attempting to incite more anti-Syrian sentiment and to provide justification for the US/NATO military intervention against Syria. While investigating the two bombings Turkish security forces found a 2kg cylinder with sarin gas in the homes of suspected anti-Syrian terrorists from the Al-Qaeda linked Al-Nusra Front, ready to be deployed to Syria.

The US accused Syrian regime of using chemical weapons against Ghouta area, a suburb in Damascus, in August 21st.  Veteranstoday reported that Syrian rebels as well as residents of the area, who were interviewed by the humanitarian agency Doctors Without Borders, indicated that Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan had provided Chemical weapons to an al-Qaeda-linked armed group, who were responsible for carrying out the chemical attack.

The Syrian government had many times exposed the fact, with evidence, that the anti-Syrian terrorists had used chemical weapons several times against Syrian troops as well as against civilians. Last July the Syrian Ambassador to the UN, Bashar Ja’afari, had reported to the UN and to reporters that a cache of 280 containers filled with toxic chemicals such as ethylene glycol, ethanolaminem diethanolamine and triethanolamine, “enough to destroy a city” was discovered in northwestern Syrian left by the terrorists in their tunnels. Syrian officials had accused the terrorists of using these chemicals against Syrian troops in Khan el-Assal in a March attack outside of the northern city of Aleppo causing the death of 25 and injuring 86 victims.
In August, Syrian state TV broadcast footage of soldiers finding chemical agents in rebel tunnels in the Damascus suburb of Jobar. Containers of these chemical weapons were stamped with “Made in Saudi Arabia” and others were manufactured by German company for Qatar. The Syrian state TV had reported that the troops had also discovered similar chemical lab in the city of Banyas in July 7thRead more>>
