They Used to Call Them Conspiracy “Theories”

When the violence involved in the Syrian revolution first came to exposure, it attracted much attention from around the world. Media networks such as Aljazeera, Alarabiya, CNN, and BBC all drew a scenario in which a power-lusting dictator was deliberately massacring peaceful protesters in order to remain in power. The Syrian government, however, rejected this story and offered another scenario regarding the undeniable violence that was occurring in the country. According to the Syrian president, Bashar Al Assad, and other government representatives, the horrific violence that was taking place in Syria was carried out by “terrorist gangs” , many of whom were Islamic extremists that opposed the Syrian government for its secularity and that aimed to create an Islamic Sharia led government. The Syrian government also proposed that the West, especially nations such as the United States, was particularly involved in backing the extremist rebels up because it too had a political interest in ousting the Syrian government.

after the protests broke out in Syria. He said that “Syria’s enemies were targeting its unity”.

All of the claims made by the Syrian government were not backed up by any evidence. They were simply “theories”, and more specifically “conspiracy theories”; at least that is what most people who rejected these ideas referred to them as. Most people who supported the Syrian government’s direction of thought were mocked to be “conspiracy theorists” or “Assad apologists”. Their arguments were dismissed as irrational and impossible.
In recent days, however, more and more evidence has compiled to reveal a truth that is quite ironic. In fact, the evidence is so strong that it is actually no longer deniable. At this point, the FSA does indeed fit all of the descriptions the Syrian government had given it. This is fully recognized by everyone, especially the Syrian people.
First of all, the FSA is indeed composed of mostly radical sectarian individuals who consider their fight to be a form of jihad for the sake of Islam. Many of these fighters are not even Syrian, they are mercenaries who have entered Syria through the Turkish border. A lot of them are with Al Qaeda, in fact the leader of Al Qaeda, Ayman Zawahiri, is an outspoken supporter of the Syrian Revolution and has made public invitations for jihadists all over the globe to join the FSA. And they have indeed been found on Syrian lands (See Al Qaeda leader, Ayman Zawahiri, calls upon jihadists all over the world to join the FSA in Syria)
