First picture emerges of Al Nusra terror leader – one of the world’s most wanted – as the group announces official split from al-Qaeda

‘We declare the complete cancellation of all operations under the name of Jabhat al-Nusra, and the formation of a new group operating under the name “Jabhat Fath al-Sham” noting that this new organisation has no affiliation to any external entity,’ said Jolani, in a video aired on the Syrian opposition station Orient TV and Al-Jazeera.

The group will also now be known by the name Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, meaning the Conquest of Syria.

It sounds like the launch of a new real estate agency – and in a way, it is.

    Did someone forget to file their return wirh CRA and then get told they had to reincorporate under a new name.

      • A stupid asshole named Mohammad and stupid asshole named Hussain are both stupid assholes. Even if they change names.

    Tell me again why nobody knows who is funding these people and who is delivering their materiel and contraband to them.
    Perhaps Wikileaks knows?

        They got a lot of money from seized banks and oil wells.

    Just a bunch of JV guys thinking they’re the new Kobe Bryants of self-detonating muslims.

    Distancing themselves from Al-Qaeda and IS, at least publicly, is to make it easier for western governments to give them armaments.

    I do like Milo though mesself because of his guts his wit and his attractive appearance….and because he calls Trump “daddy”……

    The Chechen whom I have christened Sharif would have profited in his foto shoot from a wind machine fan for his scarf and hair….wind blown as though he is riding a racing camel across the endless dunes to rescue the 12th Imam…
