Going on Jihad?
Terrorist Group A
Terrorist Group B

The real question when going on Jihad in Syria is which terrorist moderate opposition group to join. Both claim to be the one true representative of Islam, while accusing the each other of being apostates.

Decisions, decisions.

Jund al Aqsa, an al Qaeda front group, has pledged allegiance to Jabhat Fath al Sham (JFS, or the “Conquest of the Levant Front”), al Qaeda’s rebranded branch in Syria. The move comes after tensions between Jund al Aqsa and other groups fighting Bashar al Assad’s regime boiled over in recent weeks.

Ahrar al Sham, which models itself after the Taliban, has been at odds with Jund al Aqsa since last year. In October 2015, Jund al Aqsa withdrew from the Jaysh al Fath (“Army of Conquest”) alliance, which is jointly led by Ahrar al Sham and JFS (formerly known as Al Nusrah Front). At the time, Jund al Aqsa objected to some of Ahrar al Sham’s policies and tactics.

Relations between the two sides seemed to improve earlier this year, but the situation was never fully resolved. Ahrar al Sham has recently accused Jund al Aqsa of having ties to the Islamic State and launched an offensive in areas controlled by the group. Numerous other opposition organizations rallied to Ahrar al Sham’s side, which created a crisis for Jund al Aqsa.

By formally joining JFS, Jund al Aqsa and its allies are hoping to put an end to the rebel infighting. Dr. Abdallah Muhammad al Muhaysini, a highly influential al Qaeda-linked cleric in Syria, claimed on his Telegram page to have helped broker the deal. His involvement signals just how serious the matter is from the jihadists’ perspective. Jund al Aqsa has technically agreed to submit its forces to a common sharia (Islamic law) court that can adjudicate the matter. But it is too early to tell how the conflict will be resolved.

Here's a simple and easy rule for Westerners, any time you read the word Aqsa, needs killing.

2 SSGB: At this point, the few real fighters we have left, cannot win or survive.
The fairy boys and lesbos are too weak to fight, so we lose big time.
Now I condemn myself for language.

3 The other problem is that they all keep changing their names.

Jabhat Fatah al-Sham used to be the Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra.

Jund al Aqsa used to be Saraya al-Quds, was formed in 2012 as a sub-unit within Fatah al-Sham,

They're all basically a bucket of scorpions so it doesn't really matter which group you join. They ally and fight each other depending on the facts on the ground, except the Iranian-proxies always support Assad and the Saudi proxies always fight Assad.
Heck, a bunch of them were allied with ISIS at one time.

from an article at Lebanon Now, they have an English version.
