Why is Obama supporting the Islamic State's terror regime in Aleppo?
Russia has formally requested that the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) add Ahrar al-Sham and Jaish al-Islam to its list of sanctioned organizations because they “are closely linked to terrorist organizations, first of all Islamic State and Al-Qaeda, and provide and receive from them financial, material, technical and military support.”
This would allow Syria and its allies to make the case for offensive military operations against them, even during a cessation of hostilities, under UN Security Council Resolution 2254.
As it stands now the Saudi dictator family and its backers (e.g. Obama administration) protect the Islamic State in Aleppo by calling these other islamists "rebels" against Assad.
These Salafi groups ought to be excluded from negotiations about Syria’s future, given their islamofascist ideology. The so called “moderate" head of the Syrian opposition’s High Negotiations Committee (formed in Riyadh), Mohammad Alloush, is also the leader of Jaish al-Islam.
Alloush’s father, Zahran Alloush, was described by a former US official as an “ambitious Islamist commander” in an article about a resurgent “moderate” opposition in 2014. However, Zahran Alloush was an apocalyptic sectarian hater who warned Shiites that “the Umayyad had previously broken your heads, the Levantines will break them again, you impure rejectionists”.
Obama and Kerry are well aware of Ahrar al-Sham’s and Jaish al-Islam’s collaboration with Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s affiliate in Syria, and both groups’ radical Islamic ideology, which barely differs from that of Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State and has little foundation or appeal among the vast majority of Syrians. These groups are fully backed by the Saudi dictator family, Turkey and Qatar for the sole purpose of getting rid of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad - no matter how much the Syrian people suffer.
There simply isn't a popular support of these Saudi and Turkey backed Salafi groups in Syria.
