Sunni Extremists Call for Jihad Against Shi’ites Over Syria
CNS News ^ | May 30, 2013 | Patrick Goodenough

In a further sign that Syria’s civil war is increasingly becoming a theater of battle between Shi’ite and Sunni extremists – under the respective flags of Hezbollah and al-Qaeda – a group of Sunni radicals in Egypt is citing the Syrian situation in its appeal to Sunnis everywhere to support a jihad against Shi’ites.

Twenty Egyptian Salafists including Mohammed al-Zawahiri, the brother of al-Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri, urged Sunnis to target Hezbollah and others involved in the fighting in the Syrian town of al-Qusair (al-Qusayr)...

thousands of Shi’ite fighters from Hezbollah, Iran and Iraq have been involved in the fighting around the rebel-held town near the Syria-Lebanon border in recent weeks

Wait a minute! You mean after all the infidels have been killed and they’ve achieved Dar al-Islam throughout the world there WON’T be peace? I’m so confused!

It will be a miracle and blessing if we can merely stand aside while terrorists kill one another.

But 0bama will find a way to screw this up.

This jihad thing is so overplayed now...Cant do anything without having a jihad brought down on you.

And if you dont believe me, you better kill me now, or I’ll bring a jihad down on you.

With bit of good fortune they just might get themselves into an Islamic version of WWI, achieve an endless, mindless slaughter, just as European Christians did then, and end up just as morally and physically exhausted and demoralized as the West did then. Indeed, this could be our best chance for finally defeating radical Islam.

The government of Libya didn’t have the Russians backing. The government of Egypt didn’t have the Russians backing. Syria does. It’s a different story. The real question is, “Why did Hillary and Obama use US personnel, equipment and money to overthrow the governments of Libya and Egypt?” Is it because of their long history of being freedom fighters? “Money makes the world go round! The world go round! The world go round!”

Shades of the Iran-Iraq war.
When your enemies are busy digging a hole to jump into..don't stop them..maybe just a little encouragement. Just enough arms to help the Sunni rebels to keep them in the fight, but not win. And just enough pressure on Assad to keep them vulnerable and prevent weapons being transferred to Lebanon.

Right now, with Obama’s help, the jihaadis are on a roll heading to a caliphate with no real opposition. An islamic civil war is the best way to stop them. Oddly enough, our presently confused foreign policy seems to be blundering in the right direction, provided we can keep fools like McCain, Graham, and Obama from getting us married the the A/MB side and giving it enough aid to win. Only a big, bloody, endless Islamic civil war will eventually burn out the fire of radical Islam.
