â€œThe Osama bin Laden brigade of the Souqour Dimashq (Hawks of Damascus) Battalionâ€¦..Allahu Akbar!”
(Eretz Zen) –This video footage from Damascus shows a brigade calling itself “Osama bin Laden”, the al-Qaeda chief and founder. This brigade belongs to the Souqour Dimashq (Hawks of Damascus) Battalion of the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA).
Western countries have been claiming that the FSA is comprised of somewhat “secular” people and that jihadists have only joined the fight but they are not part of the FSA. Well, you cannot get more al-Qaeda’ish than calling a brigade “Osama bin Laden”.
