Rebel Child honors Bin Laden, promises slaughter of Shiites


  • Mary Okorn-Jimenez

    I am blown away. I must question the base, inherent, integral humanity of a people who could teach their children to think this way, sing this way, motion this way – and someday, feel and act that way.

    • james

      not every body has or have had the luxury of growing in a Brady bunch family. you must have been very protected growing up to think like that with that kind of statement

      • Mary Okorn-Jimenez

        And the problem with that is….?

    • lastresort09

      Don’t blame these guys especially because they are the result of our business there. If someone kills your loved ones and destroy your home, will you just deal with or fight them? A lot of muslims don’t do anything but a lot muslims turn into terrorists against us. We went into Iraq because of 9/11… remember that? We didn’t even go through as much trouble as a lot of muslim countries do, yet we went in and killed many people as revenge… people who had nothing to do with it. So yeah you tell me about who teaches who. We are not any better.. in fact we are worse.

      • DWolf

        Baloney! These people of the Muslim religion (of peace *NOT*) have been violent and belligerent since its founding by Mohammed some 700+ years ago.
        No matter what country they emigrate to the Muslim is never happy…never content with his host. Laws and culture are pressed upon for change to acommodate the muslim, all things halal and all under Sharia!

      • D S Craft

        Baloney, baloney, baloney. We did NOT go into Iraq because of 9-11. 9-11 had nothing to do with it. We went into Iraq because Hussein (the Iraqi one, not the guy occupying the White House) repeatedly refused to cooperate with the United Nations weapons inspectors and had ignored some 17 UN resolutions related to it and because the Bush administration, along with virtually all Western intelligence agencies, believed Iraq was developing nuclear weapons. They also had WMD in the form of chemical weapons. So, please spare us the revisionist history.

        • lastresort09

          I am not talking about the actual truth behind it all. I am referring to why the American people thought we should get into Iraq. Two different things. I am not wrong at all about what American people thought at the time and why we went into 9/11 according to them.

    • RobertGipson

      Well, your tax dollars at work. It is a proven fact that US tax dollars were used in Afghanistan to produce coloring books for Taliban children depicting how to joyously kill violently. Same formula being used in Syria. These people were not born this way, and most of them have been circulated from the Balkans to Northern Africa to the Caucasus, courtesy your tax dollars,

      • Mary Okorn-Jimenez

        No, they were born this way.
        Ever come up on a Muslim woman, as a white woman in a bikini?
        If she could have killed me here in rural America, she would have.
        And if they weren’t born this way, they embrace it….and that is all I need to know.
        Are you kidding me? Do you know what their “religion” preaches?
        Be very careful backing these murderous, pedophile rapists.
        They do not operate by the same moral code that is inbred in us.
        They simply don’t have it.

  • wildbill

    Ben…AL CIADA was created, funded and supported by the U.S. I’d be careful with these videos – as it seems awfully staged…I’m surprised you weren’t more critical of the definite use of propaganda – especially in foriegn lands by these supposed terror groups. They are really not terrorist – they are mercenaries.

    • Simon Shelton

      You’d think that our country would be mad about us funding terrorist/mercenary groups…Especially with OUR OWN tax dollars…

      • Vapemans

        over 55% of US Citizens are taking Some sort of Dr Prescribed mood altering drugs. Paxil, Xanax, Ritalin, Valuum, Pill to get up, pill to sleep, pill to make you feel good, one to calm you don…

        and didnt you know HONEY BOO BOO is on and that DIRTY RACIST Zimmerman was Acquitted for Murdering in Cold Blood that precious little baby boy Trayvon Martin.
        Did you hear about the Cold Blooded Murder of Antonio Santiago, a 13 month old baby boy that was shot right between the eyes, just barely a month after Martin. How much did MSM talk about that HATE and RACE Crime?

        I wonder if Antonio Santiago Could look like Mr Obomba Son, if he had one. I doubt it somehow.

    • Scotster

      I have been expecting this after his format change.

    • Vapemans

      Ben is Very well aware of the CIA Creation of AlCIADa by Poppy Bush when he was Director of the CIA, just before becoming President of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC when Reagan beat Carter.

      • wildbill

        I don’t doubt it…but this peace is pretty much like a mainstream segment. That’s what’s concerning. The bigger issue is who’s funding these guys, who developed them and this video…this video is just screaming “set-up”.

        • lastresort09

          The MSM doesn’t say that the Syrian rebels are terrorists and we are supporting the Al Qaeda. Not sure why you are being overly suspicious here when there is no reason to. Good proof? Otherwise it is just paranoia.

          • Vapemans

            Do diligent research into the Bin Laden Family, a US Oil Company Called Zapata Oil, the Bay of Pigs, and OPEC. and get back with me.

        • Vapemans

          Funding, Federal Reserve system that OWNS the US Dollar, yet is a Private Bank that NO ONE knows who those owners are, besides the NON American Rothschild family.

          But, for much of what we are seeing, it is funded much by the CIA Drug Running being the number one Drug Importer of the United states. The CIA Funded Freeway Ricky Ross. the 1st Crack Dealing Millionaire in the Greater Los Angeles, has said he was getting the Crack Directly off the Local Military base, where the CIA would bring it into, and then sell it to Ricky to sell on the streets of LA.
          CIA has been the number one drug importer for no less than the last 40ish years.
          What do Bill and Hilary Clinton, G.H.W. Bush, Notorious US Cocaine importer Barry Seal, Nicaragua Contras, 2 dead kids on an Arkansas rail road tracks, Afghanistan during the 1980s to today, and the CIA, all have in Common?

          Google Mena, Arkansas and find out.

    • lastresort09

      I don’t think you are right about that. They are not staged. Why do you even suggest that? Does anything suggest that it is staged? Who would benefit from it being staged? These are questions you should ask, otherwise you are just spreading false information.

  • Simon Shelton

    One thing I dont understand is that, unless Congressman McCain was ordered to, why did he visit Syria? The Logan Act states “forbids unauthorized citizens from negotiating with foreign governments.”

    Also, I hate/loathe all the war mongers in our country. Haven’t we messed up the world enough?

    • Vapemans

      Quite SImply, John McCain has Long been a Traitor to the united states of America, and a Front for Foreign and Corporate Interests. All you have to do is look into his Government Work as a Senator and Public Figure to Hide as Much as he could about the 1000s of US Soldiers Left in North Vietnam as Prisoners of War, and how he Continues to use his Position of Influence to hide that Evidence today. McCain is a Traitor not only to this Country and its People, but a Traitor to the United States Marine Corp, and to the Men in the same Prison Camp that he Betrayed. While those Prisoners were being Beaten, Tortured, and Murdered, Songbird McCain was at the REAL Hanoi Hotel, Eating Lobster, Steak, Drinking Beers and SIngling like a little Bitch.

      • wildbill

        A great book to enforce the McStain claims you make is – An Enormous Crime. The had satellite photos as late as the early 1990′s (if i remember right – it’s been a while) of proof of POW’s signalling for help. McStain and Kerry shut-the-door on all this info…total Traitors.

      • Life_Liberty

        Well said, sir.

      • RobertGipson

        McCain is a traitor and son of a traitor. His father was directly involved in Israel’s 1967 attack on the USS Liberty, and directly involved in the subsequent cover-up. McCain Sr., who took orders from Adm. Lemnitzer and McNamara, ran the Liberty operation from London. Lemitzer had earlier drawn up the plans for the Northwoods Operation (a false-flag very simiar to the subsequent Liberty operation), which was angrily rejected by JFK.

        • Vapemans

          i had just recently heard his daddy is why he didnt COME HOME, as it would of looked bad on Adm Daddy to have his Capt Coward Son, Ranking Officer in the Prison Camp he was supposedly shot down near (i think he just flew into NV and landed like he was supposed to do. I think he is FAR Too much of a coward to actually Eject from a perfectly good plane..
          Did NOT know his Dad had a hand in it, but that would fit the puzzle like a glove. Thanx for the truth! IT makes perfect sense of a few other issues of the time (CUBA Missile Crises for one.)

  • Johnathan Herron

    Big fan of yours since I found your reality checks on youtube, I would just suggest being careful about using youtube videos and such though. I also am a little surprised by how polarized you got at the end there, I prefer the facts first style you usually have leave emotions at the door.

  • Shadowjack1965

    Well done as always Mr. Swann

  • Life_Liberty

    On the YouTube video: although we’ve been assured by the MSM and most of our elected officials that Muslim extremists were responsible for the 9-11 attacks, it’s more likely that the Israeli Mossad was the culprit. See Dr. Alan Sabrosky’s Press TV interview on YouTube. Thank you, Ben for your excellent work.

  • Bill Ayers

    But the motivation of the US government to do this, what could it be?

    I believe this is a proxy war already in motion to engage Iran. Iran has an alliance with Syria, has agreed to help defend them AND has already committed 4000 troops to Syria. Also, China and Russia have picked their side by warning the US to stay out. Is it not interesting that Russia, China, and Iran have all started the exodus out of the petro-dollar with the BRICs agreement?

    Without the petro-dollar the military funding machine will collapse and down comes the US imperialism war campaigns.

    Ben what are your thoughts on this hypothesis?

  • http://MelanieSafkaCult.com James (Jimmy) Baldwin

    Thanks for a great report.

  • James

    so what! isnt like anyone can do anything about it. the powers that be will do what they want, the way they want, its just the way it is and the way it will be. the powers that be dont care about your protest, and gay petitions, they do as they want and really dont care what you think about it. so who is this fag ben swann guy telling viewers that it there fault if millions of syrians die, Isnt my fault! is it yours? this was a STUPID video to post of someone telling me its my damn fault for killing millions of people! Me and no one else outside the members of the powers that be circle, is responsible for anything that happens in that already screwed up country

    • Mary Okorn-Jimenez

      Yes, I agree. And those people, directly, are the Executive Branch.

      • g.johnon

        we put these assholes in office and when corruption overtakes them, we fail to remove them and just keep reelecting them.
        so yeah, it’s our fault.

    • Waco Britt

      I don’t recall him saying it was our fault. I’m sure Ben would agree about the powers that be argument which is why we want to spread story’s that are not being covered by our corrupted mainstream media. Why do
      you take offense to someone showing the full picture of a situation.

    • Christopher Reeves

      all you can really do is spread the word rather than arguing that you are somehow innocent.

    • lastresort09

      So in short you are telling us to bend over? Naah we will go down kicking.

  • Xavier

    and why there don’t you dig deeper and say that Al Qaida has been created by CIA to serve american interests ? Following that line, it’s not difficult to understand why Al Qaida ‘rebels’ would have support of the US in Syria. Because taht would later advantege the US into taking the country and its ressources

  • jac

    Some say the civil war in Syria was completely manufactured. One thing is certain– from a purely geopolitical standpoint the fall of the al Assad regime will dramatically upset the balance of power and what was left of stability in the region. Libya was bad enough, but with the fall of Syria NOTHING will the same in Turkey, Iran, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan and Egypt as continuous U.S warfare in the Middle East becomes the new norm. Under the guise of a so-called “Arab Spring”, one by one the US is removing the western-friendly dictators/leaders in the Middle East it helped in power in exchange for stability and cooperation, to be replaced by jihadists like the Muslim Brotherhood and al qaeda. The Middle East at large seems to be shaping up as the great enemy to the west the former USSR once was, as the long and sordid history of western propping up and backing its enemies is repeated again and again. But what was once done secretly is now being done openly under the guise of legitimacy. The difference today is people are wising up through the availability of information on the ‘Net, through what some are calling the Internet Revolution, and also through the excellent reporting of Ben Swann here. His kick starter campaign MUST prosper if he is to continue reporting the truth as accurately as he is. There is no way he would be allowed to do this under corporate financial support. We MUST step up and help out.

    • Kirschwasser


      “Some say the civil war in Syria was completely manufactured.”

      The 1999 war in Kosovo should make complete sense to you now…

      All you gotta’ do is to start connecting the dots.

  • Siryle44

    You’ll start uncovering more of the problem when you consider that Al-qaeda should be spelled like Al-CIAda. John McCain(traitor) and Hitlery Clinton(New World Order – high preistess, Big Banker owned, military industrial complex(UN/NATO) traitor) are giving the weapons they stole in a hit from Benghazi, and gave to these rebels already. This information is out there and not hard to find. It’s time for people to grow up, grow a pair and get our country back :)P

  • Free Syria

    So much of this report is misleading and plain wrong facts. The Assad regime has been involved in ethnic cleansing and religious war for the last 18 months according to numerous reports from the United Nations and other Arab and Muslim organizations. His soldiers are killing Muslim Sunites and empowering directly the enemies of the United States I.E. The coalition of Iran and Hezbollah.
    Iran is becoming quickly the dominant power in the Middle East and it is the enemy number one to USA and Israel and has plainly threatened the existence of Israel and is seeking nuclear weapons. Iran is the biggest arm supplier and financier to Assad regime. His fall is a big blow to the Mullah of Iran who are the real enemies of USA.

    • RobertGipson

      Thanks, Hilary.

    • jac

      “according to numerous reports from the United Nations and other Arab and Muslim organizations”

      The sourcing is the problem with this premise.

      • Jon Lambert

        If Ben has more than 2 sources then it would take more time to list them.i will list some fictitious sources here but you tell me if hearing a list like this ,read aloud,wouldnt lull you into a quick click of the mouse to turn it off: The Free Syria Fron,The Great Britain Tribune,The Netherlands Times,TheGerman Review,Abassador Rumpke of Iceland,Ambassador Waste Management of South Africa,Foreign Minister of Japan,the Foreign minister of Russia,The Tampa Tribune,The JJournal-Courier. I trust Ben because I have seen the difference in what he reports and what the MSM reports.If he says his sources are The UN and other Arab and Muslim organizations,dont forget,he may be protecting those sources as well as this story isnt about picking daffodils,its abouta war and those sources would be endangered if he revealed them. Please think before you type.

        • RageFury

          I get what you say here, but that doesn’t answer my question.

          Which begs the question, why is the US enabling them to be the Number one power in the Middle East, by aiding the downfall of all its neighbors.

    • Robert MacKay

      Who cares if Assad has danced on the graves of children, it is Syria’s problem not a US problem. Let Iran become dominant in the middle east, it doesnt affect me in any way.

      You obviously have an agenda to convince America to support your war, Thats right its your war not ours.

    • jcole

      Well, you’ve certainly provided a fine rendering of the propagandist mainstream media’s positions. Perhaps you would find mind-expanding benefit in accessing additional alternative news sources?

    • RageFury

      Which begs the question, why is the US enabling them to be the Number one power in the Middle East, by aiding the downfall of all its neighbors.

  • KentPerry

    Ben Swann ladies and gentleman,

    It’s the Only BS, that’s true

  • kitty1967

    Ben, what of the reports showing up last week only in maritime publications regarding a cargo ship sinking off the coast of India on or around June 21, loaded with weapons from the US, heading to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia bound for Syria, originating in Singapore?

  • Jbl’s

    This is certainly a goal of the totalitarian entities that control the world. We can certainly thank the military industrial complex for policing other nations in the name of democrazy and freedom. We are the worlds most feared terrorists and our own people haven’t a clue.

  • nhbuckeye

    The war in Syria is keeping Iran busy. There only way to win in the ME is take away their funding – oil and drugs. We are addicted to both yet refuse to supply ourselves.

    • Robert MacKay

      There is no way to WIN in the ME.Our interventionist foreign policy only serves to start wars and repress the poor, we are hated for being the backers of murderers and tyrants in many nations because we choose to interfere. The only solution that will work is a non-interventionist policy where we don’t play cop to the world.

      Explain to me why I should care about the Syrian revolution, you make arguments about winning but you don’t explain why we should care about winning ?

      • nhbuckeye

        Okay there hot guy. I don’t care about winning in Syria. I hope we stay out of it, which of course we aren’t and won’t. I care about the growing power of the Middle East in general and the caliphatist, jihadist, islamist crazies. Defunding them means limiting their power. I’m all for that. The most peaceful way to diminish our enemies is NOT to buy drugs and oil from them. I also think you are only partially correct in your assumption that they hate us because we interfere. The truth is far more complicated than that. They would hate us even if we ignored them and stayed out of the ME. For crying out loud, they make up stuff about what we did and they still complain about the Crusades. If what we actually did was so very terrible, they wouldn’t have to do that. They would hate us no matter what – we are the INFIDEL.

  • thebearded1

    Ben, in the most succinct fashion, you and your team said everything I had been saying about the travesty in Syria – why even the Russians knew this battle was a bloodbath, and the slaughter of the innocents are actually as you state it, where the bloody hands will be.

  • RevoltBeginsNow

    Ben, why is the US trying to create an Al-Queda super-state? To catalyze the “cash of civilizations” which has been in the planning by Jewish supremacists for a long time now. The idea is to pit the Christian West against the Muslim Middle-East, thus annihilating themselves leaving the Jew as the victor. Sad, but true.

    • Jon Lambert

      You are clearly anti-semitic and thus your slanted views have no validity and do a disservice to Ben and his efforts. He is after truth not rhetoric.

    • Len

      Yes, Yes, it was planned by two MAIN JEWS: Obama and McCain!!!!!!…

      You are an 1DI0TTE.

  • Rena

    I’ve been saying this all along. I am a Christian syrian woman, who was born in Syria, grew up here (5 yrs old) . I still have family in Syria who tell me Assad was great. Under him everyone got along . Without him the so called rebels we are helping will kill everyone esp the Christians and Jews as well as the Muslims from other sects . He is not the tyrant the media is making him out to be. It’s bull. The whole Arab spring is bullshit. Something’s up!

    • Joseph C. Carbone III

      There is little doubt, for me, President Bashar al-Assad is a bad ruler, but what our government is doing has the potential of making things thousands of times worse.

      Agreed with Mr. Swann, generally speaking, it is our hands the blood will be upon, and, if we are silent, we are in line for the guilt of our runaway-government’s crimes.

      Suppose a brother or a sister is [being starved] and [murdered]. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep [full] and [safe],” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead (James 1: 15, 17).

      He will not die for his father’s sin; he will surely live. But his father will die for his own sin, because he practiced extortion, robbed his brother, and did what was wrong among his people (Ezekiel 18: 17, 18).

      Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains (John 9: 41).

      […] you say, ‘I am innocent; he is not angry with me.’ But I will pass judgment on you because you say, ‘I have not sinned’ (Jeremiah 2:35).

      Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him (Proverbs 26: 12).

      Sincerely, Joseph C. Carbone III; 17 July 2013

    • Loren

      Something is up. It’s called “control” and “thin the people herd”. The powers that be are the same force for republicans and democrats. It is like good cop bad cop except everyone gets to die.

    • RC

      I am so sad about this my HEART is hurting> while the local news FLUFF and the rest covers nothing!Sickening. it is more like Islamic spring anyway, so it was a lie from the start . Everyone get rid off the TV set they ARE not on our side. None on that idiot box in your living room. We need to PRAY!And this is why you don’t let JUST anybody in that White House…………….

  • Loren

    The internet gave the world the greatest opportunity ever to bring the world together. But the people of the world are stupid and want to keep living in fairy tales and dreams. Get with the program people. War is being waged against you and no one is safe. If you don’t fight for your lives no one else will.

    • RC

      Amen! just blasted everyone not personally, but to some, family to, on that Facebook some still use as fluff.That will get their attention good or bad I don’t care. Ruining their bread and circus FUN? I don’t care about that either. I do care however about their souls, and that is the problem We are to give the warning and than we will NOT be held accountable to the Lord >for NOT sounding the alarm to our family, especially .

  • Kevin Merck

    Do we (including Ben) understand that 9/11 was carried out by elements of the US government?
    If you don’t understand that, you’re not living in the real world.

    • CreepyAssCracker

      I believe it was a combination of Ben Laudin and his merry men along with the CIA who knew it was going to happen and then rigged the towers with thermite in a few key locations that would super-heat the support structure.

      • Elmer Fudd

        15 of the 18 hijackers are still alive.

  • Michael Nappi

    Look at Obama’s track record since he first took office, everything he has done has been bad for America while supporting Islam with praise, money and weapons.
    If Obama is for something then it must be bad fro America and the free world.
    The first Muslim we must capture and lock away is Obama.

    • Kevin Merck

      We need to make Obama, Bush and Clinton cell-mates awaiting trial for treason. Then we could accuse them of snitching on each other to ensure a conviction and a death sentence.
      Hey, what goes around comes around. At least I’m not advocating torture, indefinite detention, without charges, and no right to legal counsel.
      These criminals have made anything we want to do them legal. Anyone who supports the Patriot Act and NDAA are enemy combatants, traitors and domestic terrorists.

    • DjPrimo Padilla

      Wow. Well said my fiend

  • Palmer Eldrich

    Great article as usual , but guess what ? , that’s not even the biggest issue with the Syrian problem, would you believe there is a potential even large issue , I’ll let Ben or yourself find out what that is.

  • munson

    We must first acknowledge one important fact, and that is regardless of what political party is in office, the same (or nearly the same) policies and actions are implemented.

    In the early 1990′s, we had Operation Desert Storm. In 1998, we had Operation Desert Fox. In 2003, we had Operation Iraqi Freedom. A Republican or Democratic Party wasn’t in office the entire time, yet the ambition stayed the same.

    We have leaders within the party that sway the party and on issues such as Libya and Syria, the TSA, NSA, and Patriot Act….their votes are the same.

    Yes, Obama is in office, but look who else is pushing the issue as well.

    We trained the mujahideen in the 1980′s. we are doing the same thing again while our troops fight them in another nation.

    • Octavius Caesar

      Theodor Mommsen on Romes political parties sometime before the revolution:
      “…both parties contended alike for the shadows, and numbered in their ranks none but enthusiasts or hypocrites. Both were equally affected by the political corruption, and both were in fact equally worthless. Both were necessarily tied down to the status quo, for neither on the one side nor on the other was there found any political idea – to say nothing on any political plan – reaching beyond the existing state of things; and accordingly the two parties were so entirely in agreement that they met at every step as respected both means and ends, and a change of party was a change of political tactics more than of political sentiments.”
      ” The History of Rome”
      sound eerily similar to whats been happening to us here in the U.S

    • Kent

      Jeese Ventura has stated on national TV that, behind the scenes, both Democrips and Rebloodlicans (as he calls them) are united as one. He likens it to the way it was when he was a pro wrestler. They fight and yell at each other on camera, and ACT like enemies, but then instantly become buddies as soon as the cameras go off. No wonder they are such massive hypocrites. It is systemic to their lifestyle.

  • dghealy

    12,000 SAMs went missing during our tryst with NATO in Libya. where are they today? and why was this mentioned on ABC. CBS and NBC for about 10 seconds last year and not a word since.?

  • Mark Robert

    This is how it works:

    It’s no secret that Al-Qaeda was created by the CIA and Mossad to fight proxy wars for the United States, and Israel.

    Mossad agents are in charge of Al-Qaeda.

    Mossad controls the various organizations who oppose the current régime by supplying them with weapons and leadership.

    Mossad unleashes opposition forces, only if the current government fails to capitulate to their demands.

    This system is used to hold small opposition forces in check until needed.

  • RageFury

    We don’t need anyone dictating to us, if we forced the idiots on the Hill to follow the Constitution, then we would NOT have anyone dictating to us.

  • mastermind119

    Great report!

  • Mark Robert

    John McCain and Lindsey Graham were among the first US officials to visit Egypt since the Egyptian People overthrow of Muslim Brotherhood.

    The Muslim Brotherhood is one of the largest terrorist groups in the Middle East.

    John McCain urged for the release of Senior Muslim Brotherhood figures who have been detained since the 3 July

    But why would John McCain advocate for the release of Senior Muslim Brotherhood figures one of the largest terrorist group in the Middle East?

    Please Google: Egypt: MORSI SUPPORTERS FAKE

  • Joe

    The plan is to clear the land of the Syrian people, especially the southern half of Syria. Israel wants this real estate for further expansion and their sock puppet, the US, will make it ready for them. The Oded Yinon plan is in full swing.

      Obama’s actions are all over the board. Pro and anti for both sides. IMHO this is about dividing all people, making the Muslim world hate us more,
      causing pain and suffering for all sides which allows major corporations to make money and bankrupt us into being dependent for welfare. Then we will have to vote for a Dem and continue the bloody cycle. In addition they are setting “brushfires” everywhere to get the heat off the real crimes that are going on in DC

    • Garrius

      All this going on, and people are still blaming Israel? It couldn’t possibly be the U.S. government pushing their own interests, huh? I hear Syria has oil, as well as being located in a very strategic part of the world that would be great for a few military bases. On top of that, Obama obviously supports the Muslims, who deeply resent Israel. You do the math.

      • Trev Tastic

        I have a feeling we’re (US Gov) enabling Israel to seize control of the entire region with military intervention in Syria, seeing as they’re the only thing standing in the way. Probably a backdoor deal in which we give them control, and we get more oil. Also, as soon as that happens, Al Qaida will rush in and kill every minority group there; women, children, blacks, jews, christians, etc.

        That’s the only thing I can think of that would explain the every-which-way Obama administration is going. It’s a win for US (Gov), and a win for Israel, Al Qaida, and the Muslim Brotherhood.

        • Garrius

          Well, I think Russia will be taking issue with us if we send our forces in there. They’re already talking about invading Saudi Arabia if we do so with Syria. That being said, I’m not sure if the world’s leaders want a WWIII situation on their hands… at least just yet.
          As for Israel, there’s already been such a big fuss over the Gaza strip that I’m not sure they’d really want that kind of blood on their hands. There would almost certainly be a huge backlash if that were to happen.
          At this point, it’s a little tough to speculate as to exactly what’s going to go down in the days ahead… but it sure feels like the shit is going to hit the fan sooner rather than later.

          Israel is not trying to seize control of any region. They are the only Jew state in the region. They want peace and sovereignty. Their problem is that they are surrounded by Arab countries filled with radical rebel groups with ties to certain Arab governments that may not exactly like Israel’s existence in the region, given their regional history. Israel is accepting of all races and religions the problem is not all races and religions feel the same way about Jews and Israel.

          Since Israel is surrounded by potential enemies, and is attacked daily, and is such a small pin prick on a map outsourced and outgunned they rely on the support of the US. Another potential reason why surrounding countries may not like Israel.

          So what might this mean politically for the US and Israel. It means Israel is dependent on US aide to maintain their countries peace and safety. So Israel is forced to comply with US agendas and political statements. Israel is basically being blackmailed to corroborate the US political statements of the region with the threat they could lose their US aide. This is common political hardball. Either play ball or get lost.

    when you share this video of a child singing to kill Alawites there are many other videos of the same things from the regime proponents even kids singing to kill opponents, so i wish you to be objective and talks about all the parts of the conflict in Syria both of them have done mistakes , in the end the conflict in syria is getting worst day after day because of the foreign support from USA to FSA and Russia supporting Al-Assad regime we started our revolution on our own not with others’ supports

    • Truthsqaud

      The problem is, he is singing about how their leader is Bin laden. America is sending these people money and weapons and planning on using military action. According to our government, Al Qaeda is our enemy. These rebels are at the very least, infiltrated by that organization. I know Assad is a P.O.S, but his regime has never once attacked the US. If you believe the official story, Al Qaeda ran the 9/11 attacks. I neither endorse nor call for the ousting of Assad. It is time for America to stop being the world police and allow civil wars to be just that. Even though it is a joke to call this a civil war as we obviously rooted and funded it.

      • DjPrimo Padilla

        Very, very well put.

        • vanavatar

          been saying it for years… very articulate………….

  • fuckyou

    After this is all over Israel with occupy all of it !!

  • Guest

    What are we waiting for, time to drop the illusion of America the great, and realize we have nothing to work with in the gov. Vile betrayers….what are we going to do about it….?

    • Heather Johnson

      Protest and rebel if need be.

  • Andre Bichara

    I wouldn’t characterize it as a civil war, more like a proxy war involving foreign Islamist militants stoking sectarian flames, overlaid by two major superpowers and their client states in the region.

  • Carl Dillahay

    Can anyone confirm the boys speech is what’s written? I find it hard for anyone to consider their terrorism blessed in the first person. Wouldn’t he use another word instead of terrorism? I love the work Ben does but just need anyone who actually speaks that tongue to confirm it. Thanks and much love!

    • Husein

      He specifically used the word ‘irhab’ meaning terrorist to identify himself. In the full video, at 1:58 the boy says ‘irhabuna mahmoud’. ‘irhabuna’ means ‘our terrorism’ and ‘mahmoud’ means praised or blessed (from the root word ‘hamd’ meaning praise).

    • Mike

      The translation is accurate… And yes they do sing about terrorizing their enemies because the Koran teaches them to do so

  • Frenchy

    at 2:53, the guy holding up the kid is like, oh snap, this is my jam.

  • Bruce Earl Lee

    amazing work people!!!!!!!!!

  • b

    Hi Ben, how can we be sure that SyrianRebelWatch2 is a credible source? How do we know that these are members of the Free Syrian Army? I just want to be totally assured that this is authentic. Thank you.

    • noodo

      It’s not FSA, it’s Al Nusra. But Al Nusra is so entangled into the rebel fractions that it’s it’s a guarantee that we are support al qaeda by supporting the FSA.

  • CB

    Ben, how do you know that Al Nusra Front is larger than the FSA? According to this wikipedia page ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_armed_groups_in_the_Syrian_civil_war ) Al Nusra is much smaller than the FSA. What is your source for what you claim?

    • Wan

      • CB

        Could you give me a link? That would make it much easier.

    • DB.Coupe

      Wikipedia isn’t a reliable source given that the information can be publicly changed. Given the resources and history of the current administration it wouldn’t be unlikely if some of the Wikipedia information is falsified. It is a possibility that exist which undermines Wikipedia credibility unfortunately. Also when Ben was reporting he mentioned the FSA was losing members to al-nusra. This is because FSA is full of defected Syrian soldiers without clear leadership. So they are perfect candidates to be conditioned by extremists to be extremists. It is typical for radical group to use these “ideal candidates” to brainwash more into their ranks.

    • Justin Hilbert

      He didn’t say they necessarily had more people. He said they were more well funded and certainly better equipped.

    Bachare el Asad is still most popular beteween Syrian people

    where can i find the sources

  • Ashhar Faroqui

    You know that Muslim’s were not responsible for 9/11 the why are you so anti-alqaeda ??

    • Pumperica

      They know 9/11 was a false flag; Ben only wanted to show the basic principals of syrian opposition which is, besides other things – Anti USA

      • Justin Hilbert

        The common Muslim fundamentalist does not know this. They are taught by their leaders that they did take down the Towers and this give them an incredible sense of empowerment, Who wants to die for a fruitless cause? No one. But masses will line up as martyrs if they believe they have already knocked a world super power to it’s knees with only a simple plan and “the Will of Alah”

  • Justin Hilbert

    This is to hand Syria over so that we can in turn, in the near future, invade Syria on humanitarian grounds to over throw Al Qaeda and Marshal Law more pipeline land.

  • SeekingUnderstanding

    It’s so hard to tell who’s a good or a bad guy any more. As the world grows smaller with technology and instant communication, the more important it becomes to exercise cautious skepticism for the overload of information received.
