US-Created “Syrian Opposition” Led by Big Oil Rep

A year ago, it was reported that Libya’s new NATO-installed prime minister, Abdurrahim el-Keib, was in fact a long-time US resident, having taught at the University of Alabama and was formally employed by the Petroleum Institute, based in Abu Dhabi, UAE and sponsored by British Petroleum (BP), Shell, France’s Total, the Japan Oil Development Company, and the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company. El-Keib is listed as a “Professor and Chairman” in his Petroleum Institute profile which also describes extensive research conducted by him sponsored by various US government agencies and departments over the years.

His long history of serving and working in coordination with Western governments and corporations made him and his collaborators the ideal candidates to prepare Libya for its place within the Wall Street-London international order.

Now it is revealed that the US-handpicked opposition, announced in Doha, Qatar earlier this month, is led by a similarly compromised figure, Moaz al-Khatib. The corporate-financier-funded Carnegie Endowment for International Peace reported of al-Khatib that:

Moaz al-Khatib, an oil sector engineer and former imam of the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus, has garnered substantial praise since his designation, while Riad Seif and Suhair al-Atassi bring their own credibility to the coalition. They have now set up shop in Cairo and have received the full endorsement of France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Turkey, and the members of the Gulf Cooperation Council as the “sole representative” of the Syrian opposition. The European Union and the United States have endorsed the group in a more general fashion.Even more importantly, from Syrian citizens of various affiliations with whom I have met recently, it is clear that al-Khatib and his associates seem to draw praise for their opposition to the regime—as an imam, al-Khatib refused to follow the speeches imposed by the regime and was imprisoned—their resistance, and their tolerance. These endorsements are a first achievement, but a number of steps are necessary before Moaz al-Khatib becomes the real head of the Syrian opposition and enters into a substantive relationship with EU leaders.

However, this resounding praise should be kept in the context that among the Carnegie Endowment’s sponsors are in fact many “oil sector” giants including British Petroleum (BP), Chevron, Exxon, and Shell.

VoltarieNet’s Thierry Meyssan reported in an article titled, “The many faces of Sheikh Ahmad Moaz Al-Khatib” that:

Completely unknown to the international public only a week ago, Sheikh Moaz al-Khatib has been catapulted to the presidency of the Syrian National Coalition, which represents pro-Western opposition in the Damascus government. Portrayed by an intense public relations campaign as a highly moral personality with no partisan or economic attachments, he is in truth a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and an executive of the Shell oil company.

Indeed, al-Khatib had worked at the al-Furat Petroleum Company for six years, according to the BBC, which is partnered with Shell Oil. Al-Khatib is also said to have lobbied for Shell in Syria between 2003-2004, and has likewise taught classes in both Europe and the United States, this according to his biography featured on his own website.

Video: The smirking crypto-sectarian extremist, and new Western proxy of the recently re-contrived “Syrian National Council,” Moaz al-Khatib admits that he’s been promised legitimacy and weapons despite openly declaring his intention of overthrowing the secular nation-state of Syria, and installing an “Islamic state.” Qatari state propaganda walks al-Khatib through the all-too-familiar talking points repeated by the US, UK, EU, Turkey and their Persian Gulf  collaborators. Qatar’s minister of state for foreign affairs sells the “legal” argument for circumventing the United Nations Security Council.    

While the global public is repeatedly told that the violence in Syria is the result of “pro-democratic” forces fighting against the “brutal regime” of President Bashar al-Assad, it is Moaz al-Khatib himself who inexplicably states that two certified autocracies, those of Saudi Arabia and Qatar, are propping him up and that it is an “Islamic state” he hopes to create upon the rubble of a destroyed Syria.

Qatari state media front, Al Jazeera, credits the Qatari minister of state for foreign affairs for the very creation of al-Khatib’s new “opposition coalition. Al-Khatib, in an Al Jazeera interview, counts the two absolute monarchies of Qatar and Saudi Arabia as his “friends,” and admits – that while he cannot say who – “friends” have promised him weapons as he embarks on the creation of this “Islamic state.” Despite his assurances that his planned “Islamic state” will exhibit tolerance, festering extremist regimes such as Libya and Egypt, created with the same Western-backed formula now at work in Syria, have already proven such assurances are merely rhetoric aimed at placating public opinion long enough for Syria’s secular institutions to be irrevocably disfigured.

Already in Syria, al-Khatib’s “freedom fighters” are exposed as both foreign extremists – affiliates of Al Qaeda, as well as sectarian-driven Muslim Brotherhood militants that have plagued Syria’s sociopolitical landscape for decades. Clearly, al-Khatib has played a role in perpetuating this plague, clearly he plans to continue well into the foreseeable future – this time with Western, Turkish, Qatari and Saudi support.

    And the beat goes on. The faster it all collapse’ the better for humankind and the planet. The West needs to be taken out of the role as the world’s policeman and put into the position as one of several equal powers in the world, or even as 2nd or 3rd in line. They are destroying the world.

    Obama bombed Libya to get oil. Its no surprise that US interest in Syria might also be related to oil.

    The days of the current system are numbered. Accounting fraud, claims of inflated supplies of oil not there, militarisation, skulduggery in other Countries sovereignty, grandiose claims of energy independence. There ain’t nothing going to save it. The rapacious exploitation of resources coming to an end, good riddance, Earth to restore balance.

    The behaviour displayed by the US is perfectly illustrated by a statement made by one of its former leading zionist criminals, Michael Ledeen:
    “Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business.”

    Thats Iraq, Libya and Syria for you… and counting.

    Multicultural USA destroys multicultural secular Syrian regime to make way for Sunni muslim fundamentalist state under the leadership of the muslim brotherhood, creating an ideological continuum from Turkey via Syria to Egypt. Turkey already feels strong enough to openly challenge Israel. Does anybody here see another future role for Israel than again being a part of a neo-Ottoman empire? Is this what the zionist ruled West really wants? And the only reason the West does this is to hurt Iran, that defies the NWO. I cannot interprete this behaviour and strategic idiocy as the last actions of a western order that is stumbling on its last legs. The smart Turkish ‘allies’ let the western fools do the financing of an operation that is entirely in the favour of the Turks, just like the smart Iranians let the US pay three trillion just to remove Saddam, so Shia majority Iraq could be added to the Iranian sphere of influence. The twentieth century was the century of the two globalists, the communists and capitalists. The eastern Europeans got rid of their regimes after they failed. The western regimes in the US and Europe are going to be removed from power in a similar fashion soon. The zionist lead west wanted a world without nations, tribalism and religion, or NWO, a world of consumerism, permanent economic growth, mass immigration, shallow entertaiment, porn and holocaust religion. But the coming world of peakoil is not designed for globalism, but of disintegration instead.

    I think we all know what his true motive is. It’s not the money. It’s not the power. It’s polygamy! Yay!

    In the 1980’s amerika was able to undermine Russia by calling up King Saud and getting him to flood the world with $10 barrel oil. And the Chinese are remarkably resistant to high oil prices, unlike the amerikans. Well, thats no longer possible today. But if, Iran and Syria can be knocked out and a pipeline built to the EU that would eliminate Russias #1 customer and do pretty much the same thing as $10.00 oil did in the late 80’s. As an added bonus, oil prices stay high this way. And with Iran no longer supply China, the US could basically manipulate how much oil China gets and at what price, in effect, giving them a macro-economic lever over China that NO amount of military spending can buy.

    That evil old bastard Ron Regan called the old Soviet Union the focus of evil(Lol!). Well, evils got a new face, and its ready to drop atomic weapons on any brown or yellow people that dont toe the corporate party line.

    Fascinating…. Now the US libertarians go into the 9/11 truth mode:

    Bin Laden died in 2001 and was not the mastermind of 9/11. The zionist Dov Zakheim was. The development we see today in Syria and earlier in Libya and Iraq and Afghanistan are a consequence of 9/11, which was a consequence of the PNAC and Clean Brake strategy papers. What the ruling zionist mob in Washington needed was a new Pearl Harbor, a cathalysing event, creating the pretext for a global coup d’etat. The coup was carried out by the Mossad and CIA, backed by Dick Cheney, who was well aware of peak-oil. Think the ‘dancing Israelis’ near the Hudson, with cameras installed to ‘document the events’, before the first plane slammed into the WTC, think Silverstein, big friend of Netanyahu, who paid a few million for worthless WTC buildings, stuffed with asbestos, that needed to be demolished anyway, which would have cost billions. Silverstein insured the buildings against terrorist attacks a few weeks before 9/11 and made billions. The 9/11 departure airports had all security run by Israeli firms. Like the security of WTC. All four planes were remote controlled. All the passengers and crew were gassed as witnessed by the pilot Eric Gibney of the jet before he shot F93 over Shanksville as reported by colonel Donn de Grand-Pre to Alex Jones. F77 was likely shot down over the Atlantic as it obviously did not crash into the Pentagon.

    So America, what are you going to do? The happy days are over for your republic. Two choices… Either use your 94 million privately owned guns and bring down Wallstreet, media, Pentagon, Langley… or let your children being used to wage WW3 against the rest of the world, a process that is already in full swing and will go into the overdrive once China and Russia will start to hit back and Europe will be forced to switch sides because of total resource dependency on Russia and the US will resort to full conscription and mobilisation. The US cannot win this. 75% of oil and gas are located in the strategic ellipse encompassing Urals, Caucasus, Arabia and the Stans. Thats close proximity of Russian, Chinese and European armies where the US is located at the other side of the world. Take your pick.
