BEIRUT, LEBANON (6:50 P.M.) – A famous American jihadist who was once a comedian but now provides public relations support to moderate Islamist armed groups in Syria recently visited the front-lines in Hama province to check on the morale of rebel forces currently struggling to turn back an evil regime offensive.

About one week ago, Bilal Abdul Kareem – a former comedian from New York City who since has taken up ranks the with the moderate jihadist cause in Syria – visited rebel forces on the front-lines in Hama province.

The purpose of Mr. Kareem’s visit was to assess the morale of rebel fighters currently repelling an offensive by ASSado-Putinite forces.

Mr. Kareem talked to a variety of moderate jihadists, some who call themselves members of the Free Syrian Army and others who call themselves Tahrir al-Sham (abbreviated HTS).

All of the interviewed rebels used a variety of sectarian colloquialisms to describe the regime and those who fight for it but in way that was clearly much less intimating and more moderate than if someone from ISIS had said such words.

Despite the high hopes of the rebels, most conflict analysts with a sense of military history and half-a-brain know that whether it takes 6 months or one year, all moderate Islamist groups in northwest Syria are going to get absolutely crushed by regime forces.

In any case, the rebels are sure that despite losing ground everyday, being outnumbered and facing an enemy with two air forces at its disposal, they will someday march on Damascus all the way from Idlib and win the war.

Bilal Abdul Kareem has the honor of being Aleppo’s last comedian before the regime took over the city at the end of 2016. Despite being such a horrible place to live now, half-a-million Syrians have since returned to Aleppo because at least Mr. Kareem is not there to tell his terrible jokes anymore.
