You may recall that a Kurdish leader was assassinated. This was blamed on Syrian forces/government.
I covered that all in a previous post, pointing out why it was unlikely Syria had anything to do with the killing
Noting that it was entirely possible a different Kurdish faction had carried out the killing.
Kurdish factions located in Northern Iraq. Kurdish factions affiliated with Israel
There is division amongst the divergent Kurdish groups-
According to this article there is a de facto truce between some of the Kurds and the Syrian government
There is a de facto truce between the Kurds and the government.
To enforce this truce, their cells in Afrin and Kobane stopped some Kurdish activists from organizing demonstrations. They claim that all their efforts are about maintaining calm to avoid a bloodbath.
Syrian Kurdish leaders have advised the Kurdish youth to remain peaceful. They argue that an open confrontation with the regime would be disastrous.
“Our people would become military target, not only for the army but also for some militias made of Arab settlers present in our provinces,” said Muslim. “The demonstrations would turn into an ethnic conflict that the government would use to its own advantage.”
Syrian Kurdish leaders are skeptical about the Syrian opposition that met several times since the unrest started in Syria in March. The Kurds say the Arab parties do not recognize the rights of the Kurdish population of Syria.
While their may be a truce between some of the Kurds, clearly the truce does not hold amongst all of the Kurds.
As I mentioned in the previous post, some of the Kurds have substantial military ties to Israel.
I wonder just how much of a role those Kurds tied to Israel have already been engaged in the destruction and destabilization of Syria?
Then I come across this today!
From Michael Weiss of the Henry(Scoop) Jackson Society.
The fate of the Syrian revolution may reside in that one sentence. Syrian Kurds who have joined the call to revolution against Assad.
Clearly not all Kurds. As we have read above some Kurdish leaders have discouraged participation in the uprising. The assassination of Meshaal Tamo was clearly a tactic to draw more of the Kurds into participating in the uprising.
The Henry (Scoop) Jackson group, by all appearances, is a cover for the promotion of the Israeli agenda in Syria and the Middle East. If they are promoting the Kurds the determining factor in Syria's fate, it is quite safe to assume Israeli involvement with the Kurds.
What a tangled web!

IISS: Syria's Opposition Is Armed
Readers here have been aware for some time the Syrian opposition is armed, violent and dangerous, still there is some interesting background in that article.
The "Free Syria Army" is literally an army of militant extremists, many drawn not from Syria's military ranks, but from the Muslim Brotherhood, carrying heavy weapons back and forth over the Turkish and Lebanese borders; funded, supported, and armed by the United States, Israel, and Turkey.
That pretty much summarized my take on the "Free Syrian Army".
There has been no real indication that there have been defections from the Syrian Military, other then from the "activists". But there have been all manner of indications of Muslim Brotherhood, Alquaeda (Al Ciaduh) . Alquaeda! yes!
Digressing to quote from my previous post-
The "activists" are not peaceful, never have been. So what else is going on in and around Syria?
How about news that Al quaeda is flooding into Syria to fight the Assad regime?
Yes, that Al quaeda! Complete with arms from Austria
The "terror group" the western media presents to the dumbed down masses as the "enemy"
Yes, Al quaeda, repeatedly without fail, shows up when Western interests need to be served.
It surely is the West that wants Assad out of Syria
Continuing on - Turkish, Lebanese and other militant groups being involved in attacking government/military officials, buildings and Syrian civilians
