Al-Qaeda may be behind Syria blasts

2011-12-23 13:00

Damascus - State TV says twin explosions that shook the heart of the Syrian capital on Friday were from suicide car bombs that may have been the work of al-Qaeda militants.

State TV has made no mention of casualties. The blasts are the first such attack in the Syrian capital since the start of the uprising against President Bashar Assad in March and come a day after the arrival of a team of Arab League observers.

An Associated Press reporter in Damascus says the blasts went off within a minute of one another in the Kfar Sousa district, where the state security and intelligence buildings are located. Residents report hearing gunfire afterwards.

Syria has portrayed the nine-month uprising in Syria as the work of terrorist extremists and armed gangs.

    "We respect other religions" Dear Rema, if you think you love other religions, then ban the Quran first that insults the Injil, Torah and, worst of all, the polytheistic religions. You are Muslim girl. So according to Allah/Quran/Islam, you have half the brain of any man, you deserve half the inheritence, your testimony before Sharia counts only half of a man, and you are decreed by Allah to be only 1/4th of your husband or less (if you throw in unlimited number of sex-slaves a Muslim man can have) in marriage. You can definitely say: "I'm muslim girl, am so proud and Honored in my Islam."

    It does not take much brain power to work out who carried out the horror terrorist attack in Syria, The Zionist owned and controlled western media (CNN, SKY NEWS, BBC, FOX NEWS etc etc etc...), have been for months cheerleading , what they have termed "peacefull protestors", ignoring the fact that over 2000 thousand members of the Syrian police, and security forces have killed at the hands of these same people, who they without shame, act as cheer leaders for. Now they have gone a step further , no doubt , promted by their CIA, Mossad , Mi5 masters , to increase the bloodshead , by putting a car bomb on a street crowded with men women and children , and blowing them to bits. Everyone is now aware that their never was peacefull protest in Syria, it was planned by the Zionist American exactly the same way as they overthrew and brutally murdered , The Lion of Africa, Gaddfi. Its now common knowledge that the CIA, and ther western agencys have been training maily forign terrorist in camps in Turkey o carry out acts of terror aganist the Syrian Goverment and it people, this is now a new phase in this terror by Zionist America and it warmongering allies to overthrow another Muslim nation that refuses to be a pawn and hand it resources over to Zionist Bankers and take orders from the Pentagon.
