  2. People should know by now that all these attacks are nothing but a series of “False Flags” perpetrated by the same group of people who did 9/11, the Boston marathon bombing, etc.. their main aim is to inflame the hatred against the Muslim people and go to war for Israel Imperialism in the Middle East. They want France to join the US against ISIS?. In reality they have done nothing to ISIS. the real aim is to take Bashar Al Assad from power and place a puppet who goes along with Israel criminal agenda. They have done it with Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, etc… and now they want to destroy Syria to pieces.
