Syrian Govt arrests Israeli backed Wahabi Cleric for Inciting riots

JNN 26 May 2011 : Syrian authorities have arrested the son of a senior Wahabi cleric and Iraqi tribal leader on charges of involvement in terrorist activities in Iraq and Syria and having ties with the Israeli regime.

Informed sources said on Thursday that Muthanna al-Dhari, son of the Chairman for the Association of Muslim Scholars Sheikh Harith Sulayman al-Dhari, has been arrested for terror activities and links to the Tel Aviv regime.

Damascus charged al-Dhari with involvement in provocative campaigns as well as cooperation with Israeli agents in their terrorist attacks.

The suspect, who has set up a base in Jordan, had reportedly met with a representative of exiled former Syrian Vice President Abdul Halim Khaddam in Jordan and traveled to Syria a day later.

Muthanna, whose father leads Iraqi Sunni Muslim tribe of ‘Zoba’, was also accused of contacts with extremist Salafi figures before his arrest.

Israeli media outlets have repeatedly reported Muthanna al-Dhari’s meetings with Israeli leaders in Tel Aviv while Israeli Channel 2 has broadcast a number of interviews with Khaddam.
