LastDayWatchers always be on the watch
“We’ve had to be much more active,” said an Asaib Ahl al-Haq commander who goes by the nom de guerre Abu Sajad. “Those who are trying to incite sectarianism, we have to deal with them”
One squads being led by a Shiite known as Abu Deraa, which means "Father of the Shield" in Arabic, at one time he was a commander in the Shiite militia known as the Mehdi Army, which was headed by a fiery cleric named Moqtada al-Sadr, who twice launched insurgencies against U.S. forces.
AAH, reputed to have an estimated 2,000-3,000 Iranian-trained fighters, is also engaged in the Syrian war alongside Lebanon's Hezbollah against the Sunni-led rebels
“We realize this is a trap and ISIS wants us to make a sectarian war,” Abu Sajad said. “When we go targeting, we target specific people.”, therefore “The fight will not be public,”

It is quite poignant that over a thousand year old hadith mentions that many Arabs will work with the tyrants to fight against the coming Imam.
The choice is not one between Sisi and Morsi, between Assad and Al Qaeda, between interventionism and isolationism. A true partnership with the Middle East could restore America's moral leadership and ideological appeal at a time when it is most needed, and can inspire the Middle East down the road towards liberty, prosperity and democracy. Washington should bid the old colonial order good riddance.
