PressTV Debate on Terrorists in Syria

An American peace activist tells Press TV that the US-backed Salafi
terrorist groups operating inside Syria represent an anti-social and
anti-human interpretation of Islam. The leader of the foreign-backed
Jabhat al-Nusra (Nusra Front) militant group fighting against the Syrian
government has pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda's chief, Ayman
al-Zawahiri. Meanwhile, former leader of Syria's opposition National
Coalition Ahmed Moaz al-Khatib tried to distance the bloc from the
al-Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra following al-Qaeda in Iraq chief
al-Baghdadi's statement regarding unifying both organizations and Jabhat
al-Nusra chief al-Jawlani's allegiance to Ayman al-Zawahiri. The
foreign-sponsored unrest in Syria began in March 2011, and many people,
including large numbers of soldiers and security personnel, have been
killed in the violence.

Press TV has conducted an interview with
Randy Short, with Dignity, Human Rights and Peace Organization from
Washington D.C. He is joined by Anjem Choudary, with the Shariah Court
of UK from London.
