Is Turkey invading Syria?

Turkish president Erdogan made a statement yesterday, November 29th, that Turkish forces were in Syria to take out Assad. This has left many people with the impression that Turkish forces only recently entered Syria to join the fight against Assad.

I’ve received all types of questions on this, so here are the facts in summary.

Turkish forces entered Syria several months ago on the pretext that they were there to fight ISIS. This was against International Laws, as Turkey was not invited to bring armed forces into Syria, but also, Turkish forces began to immediately target Syrian Kurds. Not once did they target ISIS at that time.

In 2015, Saudi Arabia and Turkey created a coalition army, an army with several divisions so it could spread itself throughout Syria. This army is Jaish al-Fateh. Both Turkey and Saudi Arabia continue to fund and arm Jaish al-Fateh and recruit new members. Turkey smuggles new members into Syria via the Turkish border.

Jaish al-Fateh is an Islamist coalition comprised of several Islamist groups. They are foreign Islamist mercenary fighters trying to take down Syria.

The Turkish-Saudi coalition army, Jaish al-Fateh, together with the Turkish army, are in Syria not only to take down Assad, which is the rhetoric used to fool the western public; these foreign armies are inside Syria to form an Islamic Law state of Syria. They have no intention to create “democracy”.

These groups want the region to be Islamic – and this is not what the people of Syria want because the Syrian people are extremely diverse.

Currently the Syrian government is secular. Syria has a Constitution that outlines human rights, religious rights and equality for all. Their elected Parliament; i.e. the Syrian government, is not “Assad’s government”; their elected government includes all sectors of Syrian society, represents various religions, and includes women. In fact, the Head of Parliament is a woman.

The Islamist groups fighting in Syria do not care about taking out Assad. As mentioned, this rhetoric is used to fool westerners into supporting the foreign invasion. These foreign Islamist groups inside Syria want to take down Syria as a whole.

Several months ago, as the news came out that the U.S. had been backing “opposition” groups that were beheading little boys and committing the same exact atrocities as ISIS, it was announced that Turkey would now be backing these groups, specifically the Free Syrian Army, a group the U.S. has officially backed since 2012.

This switch in “official” backing was intended to take the heat off of the U.S.. The switch occurred right after the little boy was tortured, sodomized and beheaded by the Free Syrian Army.

Also at the time of “the switch”, the Free Syrian Army changed their name.

Al-Qaeda in Syria also changed their name at that time as well.

These name changes were done to further confuse westerners so that the truth could be hidden from westerners.

The Free Syrian Army and al-Qaeda have been fighting together since 2012 and together they have committed atrocities and massacres on many Christian villages starting in 2012. They were also the ones behind the 2013 al-Ghouta, Damascus chemical attack. Together they have also conducted massacres in Alewite villages.

Since these two groups, al-Qaeda and the Free Syrian Army, have been fighting together as a joint force, you could say that the U.S. has been supporting al-Qaeda as well as the Free Syrian Army (the terror group that tortures, sodomizes and beheads little boys).

It is obvious to anyone in the region that these name changes and the announcement that Turkey would be the official backer of the Free Syrian Army were an attempt to deter the fact that the U.S. was backing terrorist groups in Syria.

Currently, Turkey is supporting Jabhat al-Nusra (Syrian al-Qaeda), Harakat Ahrar al-Sham (the movement of Free Sham, or freeing Sham to Islam), the Free Syrian Army (the US-backed group), and Jund al-Aqsa (an al-Qaeda affiliate).

Jaish al-Fateh, the Turkish-Saudi coalition army, means the “Army of the Opening”, as in taking a country/land for Islam.

Not one of the “opposition” groups are for democracy, human rights, or equality. They are Islamist groups who want Islamic Law forced on the people of Syria in order to create an Islamic State of Syria.

Is Turkey invading Syria? Together with the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, they already did.
