It’s headed by Jaysh al Islam. This is one of the parties making up the Army of Conquest alongside Ahrar al Sham and Jabhat al-Nusra (Al Qaeda). All of these groups have very similar radical ideologies, and none of them are all that different from Al Qaeda or even ISIS. These are the moderate rebels that the West is supporting in Syria: racial Islamic jihadis, takfiris and Salafists who are more or less the same thing as ISIS and Al Qaeda.
I am starting to think more and more that Al Qaeda is a US asset. Sure, we fight and kill them sometimes when it’s in our interest to do so in Yemen, Somalia, Afghanistan and Pakistan, but we also support them overtly at present in Syria and in the past in Libya, effectively in Yemen, and we installed them in Libya.
It’s a dirty game of geopolitics the West is playing over there!
