Tuesday’s chemical weapons attack in Idlib province, which rebel groups claim was committed by the Syrian army, bears similarities to the “false flag” attack carried out by jihadists in Ghouta in 2013, Middle Eastern expert Michael Lueders told Germany’s ZDF television.

The reaction of the US, Germany and other Western nations to the chemical weapons attack reported in Idlib province has been too hasty, given the history of false flags organized by jihadist groups operating in Syria, expert in Middle East affairs Michael Lueders told Germany’s ZDF television.
Lueders, former Middle Eastern correspondent for Germany’s Die Zeit newspaper, said the Western interpretation of events in Syria has more to do with the geopolitical objectives of the US, EU and their Middle Eastern allies than with the reality of events there.

“From the start, the Western interpretation suggests that this is about the Syrian people rising up against Assad the dictator, and we in the West must help the Syrian people and also support them with weapons in order to defend our values against the oppressor.”

“This is an appealing point of view, but it has relatively little to do with the reality. It was always a part of the Syrian population which rose up against the regime of Bashar al-Assad, not the whole Syrian population. Above all not the religious minorities, because they know that if (the Syrian government) falls then it won’t be the good guys who come to power but the jihadists,” Lueders said.

“In the West, what is always overlooked is that the so-called rebels are no lovers of democracy but are jihadists with links to either the al-Nusra Front or the Islamic State.”
