In a letter to the London Times yesterday, as reported by BBC, the chief of staff of the so-called Free Syrian Army asked for help against the brutal terrorists of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, also called ISIL), Syria's most violent terror group. He claims the group attacks opposition forces, not the Assad regime.

Brig. Gen. Abdulellah al-Basheer wrote that most of the group's members are foreign, and that the majority of these foreigners are British. U.K. fighters are involved in activities including beheadings, crucifixions and ill-treatment of women. "They are not freedom fighters. They are terrorists," he wrote.

He says the majority of non-Syrian members of the "predominantly foreign" Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, a Sunni Islamist group, are from Britain. But he claims it includes fighters from Germany and France.

He says there are also members from a range of countries across the Middle East, Africa and the Gulf, and they pose an "increasingly brutal threat."

He writes: "We the Syrian people now experience beheadings, crucifixions, beatings, murders, outdated methods of treating women, an obsolete approach to governing society."

"Many who participate in these activities are British.

"The U.K. and U.S. governments must support us to defeat terrorism in Syria and prevent it from being exported to Europe and the U.S."

EIR magazine wrote an Jan. 11, 2000 memo to Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, "Put Britain on the List of States Sponsoring Terrorism," in conjunction with the terrorism arrest that day of Omar Bakri Mohammed in Lebanon, because Bakri had earlier organized the Hizbut Tahrir terrorist gang during a 20-year stay in London from 1985 until 2005.

Before his arrest two days ago in Lebanon, Bakri was known as the top organizer of men and money from Lebanon for ISIS; see the New York Times "Lebanon Arrests Radical Cleric Who Backed Militants" for relevant coverage of this.
