A video has begun to circulate of a Alawite Muslim man being tortured by Syrian rebels, all because he is of a different Muslim sect with a different set of beliefs… and his torturers are from the very sect which make up the majority of Syrian refugees Obama has admitted into the United States.
The Syrian government is run by Bashar al-Assad, an Alawite or “Nusayri” Shia Muslim. The man being tortured in the video is of the same sect, and reportedly said he is from Homs and is a soldier with the Syrian Arab Army.
According to Heavy, nearly all of the extremist rebel groups in Syria are Sunni Muslims. ISIS is well known for releasing Sunnis, while singling out the Shias for execution.
Yet Sunni Muslims make up about 98% of the Syrian refugees being admitted into the United States. As of September 13, Obama had admitted 11,491 Syrian refuges into the U.S. for the 2016 fiscal year, and 11,300 of those are reported as being Sunni Muslim.
In the video below, the man being tortured eventually falls unconscious. It is graphic to watch and viewer discretion is advised.
According to the BBC, “There are believed to be as many as 1,000 armed opposition groups in Syria, commanding an estimated 100,000 fighters. Many of the groups are small and operate on a local level, but a number have emerged as powerful forces with affiliates across the country or formed alliances with other groups that share a similar agenda.”
According to The Believe Project, Nusayri Shia doctrine developed in the mountains of Syria in the 9th century by Abu Shu’ayb Muhammad ibn Nusayr. They write: “The Nusayris possess three distinctive doctrines which have led them to be treated as heretics by Sunni Muslims.
The belief in incarnation. The Nusayris believe that Ali is God in the flesh. Ali [the cousin and son-in-law of the Islamic prophet Muhammad] created Muhammad from his spirit, and Muhammad created Salman, an early Shi’ite saint. These three form a Trinity in which Ali is described as the ‘meaning’, Muhammad is the ‘name’ and Salman is the ‘door’.
The rejection of the Qur’an and all forms of prayer associated with the Sunni tradition. All Islamic teaching can be interpreted spiritually and therefore does not have to be taken literally.
Nusayris believe in reincarnation. Contrary to Islamic belief, the Nusayris claim that women do not have souls and, therefore, there is no need to explain the secrets of Nusayri doctrine to women.”
