Lama's face pales when the conversation turns to Jabhat al-Nusra (JAN), members of which have filtered into the liberated neighbourhoods of her hometown, Aleppo.

Lama, who wears a hijab and describes herself as religiously conservative, said she did not expect JAN to exploit the Syrian people's revolution for freedom and democracy to impose extremist views.

She said she experienced many lifestyle changes over the last couple of years.

First, her daily routine changed from walking to university to marching in demonstrations as an active supporter of the opposition and the Free Syrian Army (FSA).

Now, she is concerned about JAN's presence in her hometown.

"The situation in Aleppo is not easy," Lama, who uses an assumed name out of fear for her safety, told Al-Shorfa. "Chaos reigns, and JAN moves at will in town. Silently, it implemented a very smart plan on the ground, recruiting people to chant its name and raise its banner in demonstrations."

JAN established itself as a military force and used the provision of aid to citizens to gain popular support as a way to impose its views and its extremist interpretation of Islamic sharia on the community, Lama said.

"Some citizens are driven by economic difficulties and hardship to mindlessly side with JAN because it covers the shortages and provides them with flour, bread, food, fuel and gas," she said.

"But what happens afterwards?" she asked. "Currently, citizens in need are siding with them. But they will later discover that there is a price for all these services, and this is when the problem will surface, because Syrians, while devoutly Muslim, are moderate and reject extremism."

Lama said JAN's attempts to impose its extremist interpretation of Islamic sharia on the community are beginning to seep into public view.

For example, smoking and listening to music are prohibited "wherever [JAN fighters] are present", she said. "Being a girl, I avoid them and do not mix with them, especially after being called a kafira (infidel) by a JAN element for wearing trousers."

Lama described an incident she witnessed involving a photographer from an Arab country.

"I happened to be in a neighbourhood they were passing through and a photographer snapped a picture of their car," she said. "Their reaction was violent. They attacked him and tried to confiscate his camera. After a heated argument with him they ordered him to delete the photographs and threatened to break his camera on his head if he tried to photograph them again, calling him an infidel."

Lama said as much as the group pretends to stay away from the public eye it closely monitors everything that gets published about its activities.

JAN using religion as a 'cover'

There are currently two courts in Aleppo: JAN's sharia committee and the FSA's unified judicial court, Lama said.

JAN set up headquarters for its "sharia committee" in the city's former Eye Hospital, said Faisal al-Ahmed, an Aleppo resident also using an assumed name.

He said all JAN members present in the building dress in "mujahedeen garb".

In a telephone interview with Al-Shorfa, he said the situation in Aleppo is very tense "due to the abuses committed by these groups, who use religion as a cover".

On March 13th, he said, the group arrested Dr. Othman Othman for taking down the JAN banner that had been raised atop the hospital. The strong public reaction -- from doctors and civil and armed groups unaffiliated with JAN -- prompted his release one day later.

"JAN elements are acting under the cover of the sharia committee, conducting arbitrary arrests for trivial reasons, such as smoking in a public place or objecting to the black al-Qaeda banner," al-Ahmed said, noting that the group also has been confronting women for not wearing a hijab or for wearing figure-revealing clothing.

'Theirs is not our revolution'

JAN's influence extends beyond Aleppo to Deir Ezzor, prompting Qassem -- who is from a nearby village -- to move with his family to Turkey, where he works to provide assistance to those displaced from his hometown.

"For all practical purposes, I did not have to leave my village after the FSA and local citizens achieved military victories and liberated the people of the region," he told Al-Shorfa. "But the emergence of JAN in some provinces prompted me to leave my home and head to Turkey after I was personally involved in incidents that almost got me thrown in JAN's prisons."

Two months ago "I left my house to buy some necessities," he said. "I lit a cigarette, and before I was halfway through it, two young bearded men dressed in black jumped on me and beat me badly. People who knew me intervened, so they let me go, repeatedly saying I was a kafir."

Days later, when Qassem was buying vegetables and bread, the same young men forbade the shopkeeper from doing business with him on grounds he was a kafir.

The two followed Qassem, intercepted him a third time, and assaulted him.

"Moving around became dangerous for me, because of those who followed me and labelled me a kafir," he said. "Manifestations of JAN made their way to us; they have taken over the reins of everything, even food and fuel. They put pressure on children to enter the mosques, and assault women for wearing trousers, even though they wear hijabs."

Qassem decided to leave his village for his family's safety, until, he said, the situation stabilises.

"Theirs is not our revolution," he said. "JAN is alien to Syria and the concepts of the revolution. We did not demand the ouster of Assad's regime so JAN could take its place with its extremist religious edicts. This is not Islam."

'JAN is hijacking the civil revolution'

"JAN is clearly in the process of hijacking the civil revolution the Syrian people shed their blood for," an activist going by the nickname "Leila from Aleppo" told Al-Shorfa.

In addition to vulnerable Syrian youth, JAN relies on "Arab and foreign fighters who infiltrated Syria under the pretext of waging jihad in the Levant", she said.

"JAN controls all the essentials of daily life, such as bread and fuel, and also acts as an official authority, granting weapon and movement permits and receiving complaints from citizens, exactly as a police department would," she added.

This has not prevented secular activists from standing up to JAN elements on more than one occasion, she said, to stop the abuses and excesses that use religion as a cover.

"The people of Aleppo, while devoutly religious, reject extremism and takfiri Islamist groups, which are alien to Syrian society," she said.

'A state where freedom prevails'

JAN does not seek to fulfill the aspirations of the Syrian people, Lama said.

The Syrian people rose up to topple the Assad regime, she added, and "did not call for revolution just to fall victim once again to tyrants".

They dream of a state where freedom and democracy prevail, and where elections are decided by the ballot box, she said.

"What the people do not want will not prevail, and we do not want JAN, which controls external appearances and wants to dictate the nature of our relationship with God," she said.

    A message to all Syrians, why did you lead your country to this abyss? Have not you learnt from the situation in Iraq, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen, which gained nothing but murder, destruction, and displacement. Please, come back to your senses and love each other because you are Muslims who worship one God and follow one prophet and one Book in the first place. Please, fear God as to yourselves, your woman, and your children. Do not make us a laughing stock for the west. The likes of men of the Gulf Region laugh at you. Peace be upon you...

    O people of Syria, the end of Bashar means birth of a new Syria that enjoys a strong economy after forty years of domination by Bashar and his father. We even do not have a bank, beware because you are outside the international economy.

    All Muslims know the methodology of the takfiri groups. However, the problem is with those who helped them to enter Syria not to help the Syrians but to eliminate the Syrian infrastructure and weaken Syria as a resistance power as a favor from the Bedouins of the gulf to their Zionist and American masters.

    The revolution in Syria raised the legitimate demands of the Syrian people who want to enjoy democracy. However, I ask myself whether the murder, criminality, and mutilation of the bodies by the revolutionaries can lead the people to their needs?

    The Nusra Front is a branch of Al-Qaeda, which was founded in late 1970’s by the USA to serve the interests of the USA and Israel with Gulf financing. Therefore, the Nusra Front serves Israel through destroying Syria, the home of resistance and firmness.

    Please, pay attention to what I am going to say… Anyone knows the Prophet, peace be upon him, can distinguish the right from the wrong. I wish that the Muslim youth, who support Islam under wrong and deceptive banners, would deliberate and glorify God. We seek God's help and support against those criminals. Who are you to kill the people and legalize or forbid things according to your whims? How do you kill the innocent souls that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully? Do you consider killing a Muslim soldier, and slaughtering him like a sheep, as a lawful act while we all can serve in the army or police to defend our home? We did not attack or kill anyone. You are the aggressors, killers, and mercenaries. You claim that you win martyrdom and rejoice when one of you falls in the battlefield, but I assure you that this is not martyrdom and you will never win this sublime rank. The martyr is the one who is killed while defending his religion, honor, land, and life. An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth and the initiator is the aggressor. The Nusra Front and the Free Syrian Army initiated the aggression. You are the terrorists and the infidels. You started this conflict, and you are thus accursed, because turbulences are asleep and whoever awakes them is accursed. You fomented the sectarian strife, because before your advent, there were no Sunnis, Shia, or Christians, but we were unified people and brothers who live in the same house, and worship the same God. Muhammad, Jesus, Moses, and Aaron are all prophets and messengers of God, may God exalt their mention. We love and respect them all. All of them brought the miracles and divine revelation from God and we believed in them and in their books as well as the hereafter. Dear brothers, let us follow Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, and adhere to his methodology. Finally, we ask God to end this strife in our beloved Syria. O God! Provide us with Your Guidance.

    Apparently, the criticism focuses on the style, but I see that sometimes the word of righteousness may be said to achieve wrong objectives. Those people came to be killed with us and even before us and the regime is behind exaggeration of their role to make the West turn against us. This is only part do the interview and most of the Nusra Front is Syrians and they have a clean reputation. We have told our stories to all states and those people came to defend us, and this is more honorable than the ruler who used other peoples to kill his own people after drinking their blood to the full! Can we consider them equal? I am not from them and I do not know anyone of them and I do not approve their acts, but they are with us.

    I wish that you would succeed in deposing Bashar. I do not love you, but I want you to see what those terrorists will do to you. In Iraq, they have prohibited mixing tomatoes and cucumber and prohibited selling ice and smoking. They prohibited any driver form carrying an additional tire to use it in case of any accident because it means that you do not trust God. They prohibited everything and whoever opposes them will be slaughtered. The worst thing is that you have to pay them money or give them one of your daughters to participate in jihad.

    Islam is the religion of peace rather than murder, displacement and destruction. If the members of the Nusra Front are Muslim patriots as they claim that they came to save the Syrian people. So, why do they destroy the houses and the heritage as well as the religious landmarks, which receive thousands of the tourists everyday. We know that the beloved Syria depends on the tourism and the acts of the Nusra Front in attacking these landmarks make the tourists refrain from going there. I wish that the Syrian academics would stand in the face of those intruders and mercenaries. I even call on all Syrians not only the academicians to beware not to be fooled by the west or the Arabs. May God grant you victory and I advise you to be one hand and to be stronger than those who want to benefit from the destruction. O God! Grant us victory over our enemies. I wish that security and stability would be restored to Syria. Amen O lord of the worlds. Your Iraqi brother from Nasiriyah.

O Muslims, those who want to rape and commit adultery do not enjoin women to wear hijab, who want wine, and adultery, will not order us to be chaste. This article is wrong and it is part of a campaign to defame the mujahidin who offered and who are still offering everything to defend the Muslims. If there are people who drink wine and commit adultery but then I abandoned them, them this is the best extremism ever. O God! Grant victory to the mujahidin and repel the spiteful people. O God!

    The writer of the article is certainly secularist and he hates any victory by the Islamic current. The Nusra Front is hated by the USA and it works on isolating it and keeping it away from any authority that it may achieve. It tries to defame it in all possible ways and the evidence is that it placed it on the list of the terrorist organizations. They consider those who defeated Bashar and fought against him as terrorists as long as they are Islamists‎. However, the secularists are the true revolutionaries. The USA learnt the lesson well from what happened in Egypt at the beginning of the revolution and it is afraid of any revolution led by the Islamic current because of what happened in Egypt. Following the revolution, all parties used to praise the role of the Muslim Brothers, and their defense of the revolution. However, when it comes to the organization of the country and transforming it from the military to the civilian rule, the people chose the Muslim Brothers. Once this happened, everything became chaotic and they practice their dirty games with the Islamic current in Syria. The USA only provides the secularists with arms and trains them in Jordan to achieve the victory, but this will never happen. You are unfair and this is the least thing we can say about you.

As for the woman who wants to wear as she wishes, this is unacceptable because, we the Muslims have hijab and the Prophet, peace be upon him, taught us that we must comply with his orders. The mujahidin have left their homes and families to defend the Muslim lands and support the religion that God revealed in His Book. Allaah The Almighty Said (what means): {And the messenger saith: O my Lord! Lo! mine own folk make this Qur'an of no account.} this came in the Book of God and we will apply sharia. did you forget that the Prophet, peace be upon him, said that whoever leaves the prayer or abused the religion is not a Muslim? Hence, we will apply sharia as we are the mujahidin in the cause of God about whom the Quran has spoken.

Second, they are dogs released by foreign parties with the intention of sowing the seeds of dissension among people. Hence, those dogs bite victims so they die or manage to survive. Therefore, the moderate religious ideology shows you how religious extremism provides a great service to those who want to kill humanity and steal the light of life.

The Nusra Front won the sympathy of the Syrian people due to its good treatment of the people and its hard line with the enemies of the religion and freedom, who worship Bashar with God. The Nusra Front applies the Quranic verse in which Allah The Exalted Says (what means): {. And those with him are hard against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves. }

This is their historic dream; they want to make us the laughingstock of the whole world and they achieved their purpose. So, wake up, may God curse you.

Standing against them is a national, religious, and human duty.

    The reason that makes the Nusra Front prevent women from wearing trousers is that they do not hide the body of the woman. In addition, the Prophet, peace be upon him, imposed hijab in order to cover the body of the woman rather than cover her hair only. Those who complain and see that this would affect the freedom of the women, actually seek to destroy the Muslim households. I swear that they seek to apply sharia and this is what is feared by the USA and Israel. Additionally, if wearing the long and wide dresses by women is extremism, then we in Yemen are proud to be so. O God! Guide all those who seek to apply your sharia on earth and make them strong. O God! Whoever seeks to harm the Syrian people, destroy him, and shake the land beneath him.

Stop repeating these ridiculous things because people today are not forced to watch the age of the one-Opinion mass media. The cause of the Syrian revolution is the reckless policy of Bashar and his predicator. He wants to dominate and control his people.

Hence, the real Free Syrian Army, not the traitors, should expel this front from the Syrian arena because if Bashar fell this front will burn Syria from all aspects. You will make the Syrians long for the days of Bashar, as was the case in Iraq. Saddam fell and Al-Qaeda entered to kill, kidnap, and burn, decapitate and rape the Iraqis. Al-Qaeda committed all the humiliating committees and thus all the Syrians must move and fight this terrorist front and expel them from Syria because after that it would be too late.

    In the name of God the Most Merciful the ever Merciful. O God! Curse all the oppressors who oppressed the nation of Muhammad, peace be upon him, and his pure household. I read many comments and some of them support the article and accuse those people of disbelief, while others support this group. Therefore, this makes us inquire whether the Nusra Front and its members became the official representatives of the nation of the Prophet, peace be upon him? If the answer is yes, then where is its role as to the beloved Palestine since 1948 until today? Why al-Qaeda and the Nusra Front did not go to Palestine to liberate it from Zionists? Did they consider that the Arab Syrian army and Syria as Israel, sorry as Palestine? Where is the role of the Nusra Front in supporting the Muslims in Burma, Bosnia, etc.? If the Nusra Front is right, then what is the source of its legitimacy, money, and logistic support? I ask this question to those who believe that the Nusra Front has the right to weaken the Arab Syrian army and shed the blood of Syrian. Will this weaken Israel and the western states or strengthen them. The Nusra Front is offering this service to them. Why the Nusra Front did not perform jihad against the enemies of Islam such as the Jews and Buddhists who kill Muslims? After destroying Iraq, Libya, Egypt, and Tunisia, they moved to Syria. What jihad do you speak about? Why do not you follow the Prophet, peace be upon him, who came as mercy to the world? Why do not you fear God? Today, the USA fights the world with science and knowledge while you fight Arabs with death and explosives. God the Almighty made a dialogue with the angels when he created our father Adam, may God exalt his mention. However, you refuse to make a dialogue with anyone from the followers of your creed except through threats and bloodshed. We seek God's help against the minds which were sized by the devil.

We are certain that there is no one but these elements who are always hampering Syrians. It is really Haram that Nosrah Front wants to take over power and take control of the entire situation because Syrians do not know how the end of their situation will be. If an Islamic State will be established in Syria, we should predict a new Iraq in Syria since we will witness the same events as if Arab Countries have become subjected to the domination of al-Qaeda after the events which they have gone through and the political harm which they have caused. Thus, we really hope that Syria will restore its former situation and Bashar will be aware that he should put an end to the conditions in the country since all the people are dissatisfied with it. In addition, it is supposed to put an end to the violence in the country and it is not reasonable to see Syrians subjected to all these continuous humiliations every day and no one, except the Syrians who are living in Syria, is feeling anything at all. When they do not find anything, they abandon all the events in Syria and flee to any other country. Then, they eventually claim that they will establish an Islamic nation. I wonder why, especially that people are already suffering from the oppression of Bashar. I think that Syrians will get rid of the aggression of Bashar only in the end. Yet, I wish that Syrians would understand very well that they are responsible for determining their future and must get rid of whoever wants to establish the Islamic State because the latter should not come into existence.

    Once upon a time, there was a very beautiful state named Syria and it was full of love, security, and happiness. It was the country of thought, freedom, and Arabism. It was the shelter of the revolts and the resistance movements. It was the country that defeated the Jews in Gaza, and Lebanon. However, suddenly the worshipers of the west and the Americans decided to take revenge upon this state because it makes them feel that they are filthy and exposes the traitorous Arab American worshipers. From this point, the story of Syria began. May God take revenge upon crows.

    I do not think that the Nusra Front can accuse the people of disbelief so randomly. We used to hear similar accusations against Taliban but eventually we discovered that this is a conspiracy against Islamic rule. I did not like the behaviors of some members of the Nusra Front and some of their statements, which came in a bad timing. May God show the truth.

    Everyday, violence increases in Syria very suspiciously and the problem is that Syrians alone face these accidents. Bashar al-Assad and the Syrian regime form a front in order to get rid of Syrians, and we see thousands of murdered and victims in Syria. All this is because of Bashar al-Assad who ordered to do this. Certainly, Bashar forgot that he is responsible for Syrians and he will be asked for them, because we must understand that as time passes Syrians can't bear all this violence; violence and murder increase in Syria and security forces control all Syria. What can we do then? What is the solution? I hope someone advise us how we can make Bashar go away with his strange control over Syrians because we can't go on! I hope everyone supports Syrians at the time when Bashar is oppressing them.

Try to use your brain, Iran is not supporting you because they love you, or even thinking that you’re one of them, but they must be having a bigger plan that you’re unaware of. Things will develop in ways no one can predict seeing as they commit as many crimes. We need a solution people because we are losing everything we need an exit strategy for Syria to restore it to its people and keep Iran out.

    Have you ever heard about a salafist who is training in Iran, which hates every Sunni and especially Salafism because the latter follows our Prophet Mohamed, blessings and peace be upon him? Thus, how do you explain the absence of a Sunni mosque in Qom and Tehran? All Sunnis in Iran must pray at home and if they are caught red-handed in a group prayer, they will be executed. However, the Iranian training and funding of al-Qaeda represents the Iranian trap to hunt the sycophants and those who snivel on Islam. The events in Syria are the best evidence on this. Salafism inevitably does not encourage criminality and murder only deservedly. However, we cannot claim that al-Qaeda members are Salfists according to their declarations because this Organization is very mysterious, and we should not rule out the possibility of being backed by major superpowers.

    The Nusrah Front is honestly not that bad and anyone who promotes the enforcement of divine laws and advises women to wear Hijab cannot be bad. But the problem could be in their strict methods and their tendency to do things through force. But if they adopt an approach of gentle persuasion, advice and guidance, then I see no problem in that. If they, however, insist on forceful persuasion, then they must be guided and advised.

    What do the Nusrah Front think they are to give orders or speak. They have no power is Syria and even if they are a Muslim front, there are Muslim scientists who can give their opinions to the people. But these people have no right to lead the people. The Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him) said that if we follow the words of Allah and his way we won’t be lost, and that’s how Islam spread away from any violence. It was between the human and his creator. There will be those who believe and there will be others who won’t. Who is it that comes and forces his will and power on the people? They do have knowledge but on whom are they supposed to use it? Islam didn’t say anything about killing and spilling blood or assaulting anyone who isn’t with Sharia. I’m worried for Syria about them, they should be all careful.

Now anyone opposes Nusrah will be considered as infidel and we must keep the Syrians, so they should belong to Nusrah Front; we must know that Syrians are forced to do things because they know no other way, and we must understand the situation of Syrians, but with the existence of Nusrah we understood that this is the only solution, although the results will be the spread of extremist thoughts in Syria.

    One of the causes of the control of the terrorist forces is the Syrian regime, which opened its doors before this organization under the pretext of fighting the Americans in Iraq. The regime was aware that the Americans will not be targets of Al-Qaeda. The Iraqis, especially the Shia, have always been the targets of Al-Qaeda, because they came here to annihilate them in the first place. The problem of those who raise the scum of Al-Qaeda is that they do not realize that they are wolves, and that once they find a chance, they will eat those who raised them. If this happened, there would be no use in enquiring about who told them that they are wolves. May God protect Syria from terrorism and we ask Him to spread peace on its lands.

We revolted against the secularists to establish the rule of Islam after we suffered from the oppression under the rule of the secularists. No matter how you met the mean people to make them say things that defame the mujahidin, you will never succeed. Syria is an Islamic state and the revolts always say so. We have not offered this huge number of martyrs to replace a secularist regime with another secularist democratic regime. Those who were martyred were killed because they are true Muslims.

    There is no doubt that Qaeda does not exist only in Iraq. This terrorist organization extends throughout all Arab nations, including Syria. It spreads widely in the countries where the regime is weak in order to impose its power as happens in Iraq and in Syria. I believe this news, particularly after we had read that there is group in Syria called Front of Nusrah whose number is no more than about five thousand members who basically belong to Qaeda; therefore they are armed by Qaeda and also that are funded by Qaeda in order to deal with all Syrians, I am not convinced that such acts of destruction differentiate between Syrians and the regular people and the child and women, because when there is an explosion, it hits all and does not distinguish between this and that; therefore, thank God that He enabled the Police of Iraq to arrest all of them and made them fail to deliver these explosions to Syria. We are proud that Iraq always keeps its own territory and other sisters' territory like in Syria because these explosions kill Muslims in Syria as well as Muslims in Iraq. There is no power but from God.
