The coming fall of the French-Israeli-Algerian Zionist Jews will provoke a war in France. Sarkozy tried to maintain the israeli domination over the Algerian military apparatus (DRS) but failed to start a civil war in Toulouse with 'Operation Merah'. French-Israeli are in control of the fake 'jihadis' groups such as GIA-AQIM (created by the DST-DCRI), MUJAO (driven by the french DGSE), while the pentagon has full control over the Ansar Deen leader, Iyad Ag Ghaly, a malian linked to the qataris and saudis, and a good part of Boko Haram with the British MI5-6

The Ugly Truth about Algeria

Despite not really being in the news, Algeria still appears in the Western media intermittently. As the Maghreb’s last dictatorship, the recent wave of regime change and democratization has passed this important country by, at least so far. Algeria is the key state in Northwest Africa—by virtue of its size, position, natural wealth and regional influence—yet has missed out on the trend that has overtaken so much of the Arab world for the past two years. It remains notable that Algeria’s bloody civil war, which began twenty years ago, never really ended. And now with the help of Al Qaeda, the conflict may be spreading across the Sahel region.

Events in Algeria have long been underreported in the U.S. and Western media (with the exception of France), and there is a general lack of understanding of what ails the country. Certainly the terrible fratricide there in the 1990s got little coverage in Western media, despite the fact that it probably claimed twice as many lives as the Bosnian conflict, which ran concurrently and received nonstop Western attention.


Algeria’s nightmare years of 1993–1997 were a focus of the international human-rights community, which correctly pointed out that the conduct of the government was hardly better than that of Islamist terrorists trying to take over the country. But since 9/11, the Algerian narrative has been subsumed into the West’s counterterrorism effort, to the extent it is reported at all. Enormous poverty, inequality, and the regime’s rapacious and brutal conduct get little attention from Western experts, who seem more interested in speculating about potential Al Qaeda attacks in the Maghreb.

The Real Story

The official story is straightforward. Two decades ago, the military-led junta, which had governed the country since independence from France in 1962, cancelled a democratic election that likely would have brought Islamists to power, and mujahidin took up arms against the secular regime. By 1993, the supremely violent Armed Islamic Group (GIA) emerged as the implacable foe of the regime and the local Al Qaeda affiliate. Although GIA was not the only Islamist resistance group in the country, it was unquestionably the bloodiest. It conducted brutal attacks not just in Algeria but in Europe as well, including a wave of bombings in Paris in the summer of 1995, remembered by terrorism gurus as Al Qaeda’s first attacks on the West. Failing to achieve victory, GIA fell into mass murder, slaughtering Algerian civilians by the hundreds, causing Al Qaeda to break ties with the group in early 1997. Largely killed off by the Algerian security forces, by 1998 the remnants of GIA had coalesced into the GSPC, a far smaller group which posed no serious threat to the regime and spent most of its time on kidnappings and robberies.

In 2006, after almost a decade hiatus, Al Qaeda reinitiated Algerian mujahidin into its ranks, renaming the local franchise Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). While AQIM has been more active in terrorism than the GSPC, it also seems more like an armed gang than a bona fide jihadist group. Over the last few years, AQIM’s reach has extended across the Maghreb and into the Sahel, leading some jihad-watchers to posit that it constitutes a threat to the region, a view shared by many in the U.S. government.

While this account is not entirely inaccurate, it leaves out so many important details as to be essentially false. Above all, it omits the role of the Algerian regime in counterterrorism, which has been effective at defeating the jihad even though its methods would make most Westerners shudder. The lead agency in the fight against the Algerian mujahidin has been the country’s military intelligence service, the feared DRS. With a reputation for ruthlessness and efficiency second to none in the Arab world, the DRS is arguably the world’s most effective intelligence service when it comes to fighting Al Qaeda; it is also probably the most cold-blooded. The DRS can be considered the backbone of the military-led junta. General Mohamed Mediene has headed the DRS since 1990, making him the longest-serving intelligence boss in world history—and few doubt that he is the most powerful man in the country.

Trained by the KGB and schooled in the hard fight for independence, Algerian spies have used tactics against homegrown extremists reminiscent of a sinister B-grade movie. Several high-ranking DRS officers have explained what they did to defeat the mujahidin, including violating human rights on an industrial scale, but hardly anyone outside France seems to have noticed.

Simply put, GIA was the creation of the DRS; using proven Soviet methods of penetration and provocation, the agency assembled it to discredit the extremists. Much of GIA’s leadership consisted of DRS agents, who drove the group into the dead end of mass murder, a ruthless tactic that thoroughly discredited GIA Islamists among nearly all Algerians. Most of its major operations were the handiwork of the DRS, including the 1995 wave of bombings in France. Some of the most notorious massacres of civilians were perpetrated by military special units masquerading as mujahidin, or by GIA squads under DRS control. Having driven GIA into the ground by the late 1990s, DRS has continued to infiltrate and influence Islamist groups in the country. To what extent the local Al Qaeda affiliate is secretly controlled by the military—as GIA and GSPC were—is an open question, but its recent record suggests that DRS influence over any Algerian extremist group is considerable.

U.S. Intel Failure?

These realities, understood by Algerians, are little known in the West, particularly in the United States. While French senior officials have hinted they have been wise to DRS games for many years, a similar understanding seems altogether lacking in the Pentagon or the U.S. intelligence community, which have partnered with Algeria in the fight against Al Qaeda since the 1990s. Whether they really are ignorant or simply do not want to know the sordid details is an open and important question.

To be fair to those inside the Beltway, outside “terrorism experts” are just as credulous about Algeria’s “official story,” and an entire subindustry has arisen in recent years that seeks to explain Algeria and its violent homegrown jihad without any reference to basic realities inside the country.

Yet Algeria’s neighbors, who fear the country’s outsized influence in Northwest Africa, are appropriately skeptical of the Algiers-created narrative that portrays AQIM as a major threat to regional stability. They reject the idea that extremists can be combated only by greater Algerian involvement in regional affairs that is implicitly supported by the United States. African officials are known to drop unsubtle hints that AQIM is not quite what it seems to be and ought to be viewed within the broader context of Algerian foreign policy. In one of the rare cases where such doubts were aired openly, Mali’s head of state security, who is charged with keeping Algerian mujahidin out of his country, told the press in June 2009 that “at the heart of AQIM is the DRS.” Shortly thereafter, he was shot dead at home by “unknown gunmen.”

U.S. interest in the Sahel has only grown in recent years, roughly in tandem with the alleged rise of AQIM in the region. It is no coincidence that the U.S. Army is aligning a combat brigade with U.S. Africa Command—which heretofore has had no combat units permanently assigned to it—and the Pentagon’s interest in the region is rising fast. “Terrorist elements around the world go to the areas they think has the least resistance,” explained army chief of staff General Ray Odierno, “and right now, you could argue that’s Africa.”

While Al Qaeda unquestionably has a great deal of interest in the Maghreb, and would surely like to see the Algerian junta fall and be replaced by a Salafi regime bent on rebuilding the imaginary caliphate, the chances of this outcome are virtually nil. DRS methods, plus the usual extremist tone-deafness, have successfully soured the vast majority of Algerians on the jihadist message. While most Algerians want an end to what they simply call le pouvoir (“the power”), the corrupt military elite that has run the country since France left in 1962, few pine for any sort of Islamist dictatorship.

Unsolved Mystery

Last weekend, Algeria celebrated fifty years of independence. But for most Algerians, buffeted by poverty, instability, corruption and war, there is little to celebrate. Mid-May parliamentary elections resulted in a surprising win for the junta, leading to accusations of fraud as well as despair for those hoping for change via the ballot box. It is clear that the military has no intention to bowing to any sort of peaceful regime change, but infighting among the elite may undo the system. When the junta falls, as someday it surely will, the change will rock those who have waged Algeria’s dirty war against terrorism. The effects on the junta’s foreign supporters, who have turned a blind eye to massive human-rights abuses in the name of counterterrorism, will be serious too.

It is time for the U.S. government to follow the lead of human-rights groups: Washington should start asking important questions about what Algiers has really been up to since 1992, and to what extent the junta and the DRS have been engaged in mass repression and state terrorism under the guise of fighting Al Qaeda—all possibly with U.S. assistance. The saga of Algeria over the last twenty years constitutes “one big murder mystery,” said one of the few writers in the Anglosphere to take notice. It’s time to get to the bottom of it.

WAR IN FRANCE?

“John R. Schindler ... Combating Terrorism..."

As such, John R. Schindler is immediately disqualified and cannot be trusted to write the WHOLE truth about Algeria or any Muslim country. As a professor, he must be an idiot to use such terms as “Islamist terrorists”, “Islamist dictatorship”, etc., because these exist only in the minds and propaganda book of the imperialist West. As soon as any author starts using other terms other than the proper term MUSLIM, I just keep away from him! There is no such thing as a “MUSLIM TERRORIST”!

I am sure Schindler is convinced, like all the other fools that Muslims carried out the implosions of 11 September 2001 despite the fact that SIX MILLION EXPERTS have already proven that Israel and the US establishment carried them out!

I would agree with him however when he says that Algeria suffers from “Enormous poverty, inequality” and that the regime is RAPACIOUS and BRUTAL and that “GIA was the creation of the DRS !”

“Most of its (GIA’S – GROUPE ISRAËL ARMÉE or ARMED ISRAEL GROUP) major operations were the handiwork of the DRS, including the 1995 wave of bombings in France. Some of the most notorious massacres of civilians were perpetrated by military special units masquerading as mujahidin, or by GIA squads under DRS control.”

These are correct statements as they have been fully documented. To have been able to spawn such a killing machine like the GIA within Algeria itself proves how degenerates the Muslims of Algeria had become thanks to their adoption of the FRENCH WAY OF LIFE, THAT OF SATAN HIMSELF, DIIN AS SHAYTAAN, AND ITS FASCIST AND RACIST LAÏCITÉ!

I wish however and hope that The French-Israeli-Algerian Jews will fall, but unfortunately I have not yet come across any evidence about this providential miracle! I do not wish any country to be stricken by war, but I moat heartedly welcome the idea of war coming to France. Non content of their treacherous and murderous past during the Crusades, the Inquisition, the Slave Trade, and other wars, the French military backed by the French intelligentsia, Churches, bank gangsters, corporations, mainstream media, academia, and Jehovah or Yahweh, has been mass murdering defenceless people around the world, in Indo-China, Africa, the Arab and Muslim countries and now with the Jews in total control of the French Fascist and Totalitarian Regime, they are preparing for more ritual sacrifice to their blood-thirsty Gods. Therefore, THE LAW OF KARMA WILL (HAVE TO) APPLY!

The Israeli and Jewish domination over the Algerian Military Machine started already with the end of the useless Algerian Revolution when the Muslims were defeated and their country taken hostage by France. There was no Nuremberg trial for French mass murderers, rapists, torturers, sodomites, and racists because Muslims were and are still regarded as inferior to Jews and to all other people on earth!

I see no evidence that the French and the Zionists intended to start a Civil War with OPERATION MERAH. If that was the case, the Civil War would have happened! It is well documented that the West and Israel are in total control of all the FAKE “JIHADIS” talked about in the Western Press on a daily basis. The “MUJAHEDIN” E KHALQ, GIA, and others, all the creation of the CIA, MOSSAD, DST-DGSE, MI5-MI6, etc.

As for the ANSAR DEEN and BOKO HARAM, I need to do more research. But, I would tend to trust the author that they too are controlled by US-UK intelligence and military.

I met an Algerian ‘Muslim’ in London during Ramadaan, who was praising “British democracy” and saying that everything is going on well in Algeria. “We know the government is corrupt, but we are free to do whatever we want!” And, he was very happy about it. What he does not realise is that he is and his parents and grand parents were the Survivors of the Third Algerian Holocaust of the 1910s carried by France and the Jews in their land.

We cannot blame the West however for not reporting the extent of the blood bath that has occurred in Algeria some twenty years ago, but only the Algerians who are so backward that they do not know what to do with their lives. It was and still up to them to tell the whole world the REAL TRUTH ABOUT ALGERIA. Just like it is up to the Muslims to tell the world about what is really happening in OCCUPIED ARABIA! Algeria has never ceased to be under French occupation and has produced bastards and retards by the millions to such an extent that, financed and supported by the French and the Jews, they kill each other and feel no guilt at all about it!

I am sorry, but John R. Schindler is just another piece of shit who did not name the real guilty parties behind the Third Algerian Holocaust and the ongoing assassinations, executions, and murder of civilians – the Jews, the French, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, with UN complicity, of course!
