BBC reports that in a show of unity, a video was released yesterday, with a united message from 11 of the most powerful Syrian rebel groups asking all Syrian rebels to:
In the video released by the rebels, the group announced they no longer are in cooperation with the main opposition alliance: the Syrian National Coalition, and are united in an effort to enforce Sharia law in Syria. Among the 11 breakaway members are the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and the al-Nusra Front.
The al-Nusra Front represents al-Qaeda in Syria. Al-Qaeda has already overrun and taken the city of Azaz in Syria. BBC reports yesterday's video message as stating:
The National Coalition and its transitional government led by Ahmed Tomeh do not represent us and will not be recognized.
Warclashes video shows how the al-Nusra Front has broken all war rules, in this case executing 51 Syrian prisoners of war. They are accused of committing further atrocities throughout Syria.
Even moderate groups have united in the fight for Sharia law. The rebel groups: Liwa al-Tawhid, Liwa al-Islam and Suqur al-Sham are rebel groups that had been cooperating with the Syrian National Coalition; at one time participating as their main rebel presence in the front lines. They have now joined the FSA and the al-Nusra Front in their fight to bring Sharia Law to Syria.
Under Sharia law, court trials should be conducted by judges not juries. A confession or oath is weighed heavier as evidence over written evidence. Sharia law requires the elimination of any democratic system or electoral procedure. In Surah 4.34 of Sharia law, the religious courts permit girls to marry, even if they are minors.
