Obama has been telling us that he is only dealing with the moderate rebels in Syria. He might be right if you consider Gonorrhea as a moderate STD as compared to AIDS. The truth is, the fighters we are supporting are Muslim Brotherhood types.
Jonathan Spyer, is an academic with degrees in international relations, and who lives in Israel and also traveled with rebel fighters in Syria, claims that the so called moderates are MB types, who believe in Islamic law. Spyers says that when Obama speaks of the moderates leading the rebellion in Syria, these are the fighters he is talking about.
“Undoubtedly outside of Syria, and in the Syrian opposition structures, there are civilian political activists and leaders who are opposed to al-Qaida and opposed to Islamism. There are also civilian activists and structures within the country which are opposed to al-Qaida and Islamism. But when one looks at the armed rebel groups, one finds an obvious vast majority there who are adherents of Islamism of one kind or another — stretching from Muslim Brotherhood-type formations all the way across to groups openly aligned with al-Qaida central and with al-Zawahiri.”
