第二のISIS

‘Second ISIS’ made up of defeated rebels is emerging in Syria – former Al-Nusra prisoner to RT

Rebels from various parts of Syria are flocking to the country’s northwestern corner, giving rise to a “second Islamic State,” a US journalist and former Al-Nusra captive told RT, warning that the West is blind to what’s happening on the ground.

Western media coverage of the Syrian crisis is inadequate and biased, while most things reported about Aleppo are false or unprovable, a US journalist and former Al-Nusra captive told RT, while noting that the rise of a “second Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL]” is being completely overlooked.

Peter Theo Curtis, an American journalist who is known by his pen name Theo Padnos, was asked to share his view on how the war in Syria is seen in the West. Abducted by Al-Qaeda affiliated Al-Nusra Front in 2012 while trying to sneak into rebel-controlled Syrian territory, he gained insight into the various armed factions fighting the government, from the “moderate” Free Syrian Army to hardcore Islamists.

“I think that the Western understanding of what is happening in Syria is inadequate,” Padnos told RT.

“They don’t know what’s happening on the ground, they either don’t understand the language, or they can’t make sense of the videos, or their informants are, perhaps, biased,” he said.

Many in the West hardly understand “who the important forces are, what they want, and where they are,” Padnos said.
