There is no President Assad initiated “chemical attacks” taking place in rebel held areas. What we are seeing are cases of poisioning of hostage-held civilians by rebels – another fraction of the Islamic jihad.
It’s appalling that Assad is being blindly accused without any investigations of the blanket accusations against him by the world’s largest propaganda group: Sunni muslims. Anyone with even half of common-sense will very cautiously listen to any claims coming from Sunni’s, who are responsible for 98% of islamic terrorism.
Syrian Chemical Attack Doctor Tried as Jihadist in UK

A key witness to the alleged gas attack on Idlib, Syria, was tried in the UK for kidnapping journalists with a jihadist group.
Described in his Twitter profile as a “Medical doctor trained in the UK” and “Humanitarian aid worker”, Shajul Islam was a key eyewitness on the ground during the attack, offering himself for media video calls and uploading mobile phone footage of victims which was shared thousands of times.

Islam, from Stratford, East London, was interviewed by a number of mainstream broadcasters, including NBC News – but none notified viewers that he had previously been tried in the UK for terrorism offences, and struck off the medical register by the General Medical Council after a confidential tribunal.
Islam, described as a “committed jihadist” by foreign intelligence agency MI6, was tried for kidnapping John Cantlie and Jeroen Oerlemans, journalists from the UK and the Netherlands, while fighting with an Islamist group in northern Syria.
“When he told me he was an NHS doctor, I thought it was weird,” Cantlie told the Daily Mail in 2012.
“This is a man who has taken an oath to save people and help them, and here he is walking around with a Kalashnikov and preaching Shariah law. There are not any doctors who I know that do that.
“He clearly believed in what he was doing but to follow something to that extreme is the disturbing thing. He was visibly upset when the execution [of two other hostages] was called off.”
According to John Cantlie, the NHS doctor was “visibly upset” when the execution of the journalists was called off.
Only one “Dr. Shajul Islam” has been registered in the UK. He was suspended in 2012 until he got erased last year.
The case against Islam was dropped, however, when the prosecution was unable to call Cantlie or Oerlemans to testify against him.
“The case rests wholly on their evidence [and] the prosecution is unable to call the witnesses,” said Mark Dennis QC.
He did not elaborate on why this was at the time, but it later emerged that Cantlie had been kidnapped again, this time by Islamic State, along with U.S. journalist James Foley, making it impossible for him to testify.
Fellow captive Jeroen Oerlemans refused to appear for fear this would endanger Cantlie’s life.

Dr Shajul Islam from east London who was previously accused of kidnapping Western journalists has fled to Syria where he claims to be treating victims of the bombing campaigns.
Islam subsequently returned to Syria. Oerlemans was shot dead by Islamic State fighters in Libya in October 2016, and Foley was beheaded in an Islamic State propaganda video in 2014 – but Cantlie is believed to remain in captivity to this day.
He has made multiple, increasingly emaciated appearances in propaganda videos for the terror group, most recently in Mosul, Iraq, in December 2016.
Islam, who has always maintained his innocence, uploaded a video to his YouTube channel titled ‘British Doctor in Syria: Dr Shajul Islam’ as recently as February 2017, despite his removal from the medical register.
In November 2016 it was reported that UK Action for Refugees had raised £50,000 to fund Islam’s work in Syria, with assistance from other aid organisations.
