A Facebook post about air strikes against Syria from Ahmed Al Hasan in August 2013:
News is circulating that the United States and Western countries are determined to make a strike against Syria. And in Syria today, we see the battles occurring between the army of the Syrian country and the murderers from al-Qaeda. So whoever makes a strike against the Syrian Army or Syria in general is supporting the organization of al-Qaeda and helping it gain control over the lives of the Muslims. This is the equation in brief and it does not need any form of analysis. Therefore, today we see, and with complete clarity, that the United States and some Western countries are supporting al-Qaeda in Syria and the Middle Eastern region.
