The political manipulation of language against the government of Syria is ongoing. However, if you want to visit a country in the Middle East where Sunni Muslims, Alawites, Christians, secularist, and women mix freely irrespective of dress, then welcome to Syria under the leadership of Bashar al-Assad.
Alternatively, if you want to visit a nation which the United States, the United Kingdom, and a host of others support, but where monoculture rules the day, then visit Saudi Arabia. Indeed, while you have Christian churches throughout Syria you won’t find a single non-Muslim place of worship in the whole of Saudi Arabia. Also, women are whipped in Saudi Arabia if they don’t cover up from head to toe. Therefore, liberal dressed women in Syria, irrespective if Muslim, Christian, or secular, would be treated brutally by the religious police in Saudi Arabia if they entered this draconian nation.
Despite all this, a mass propaganda machine is underway and is inciting hatred and violence towards the people of Syria. More alarming, outside nations started the bloodshed and they are continuing to fuel the crisis in Syria.
Also, it is abundantly clear that international Sunni Islamists are bent on spreading their darkness to Syria. Al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI) and other international terrorist movements are behind the sectarian violence in this nation and clearly they attacked and threatened religious minorities including Christians in Iraq. Indeed, many of the Christians fleeing the mayhem in Iraq fled to secular Syria in order that they could worship openly and find peace.
However, today AQI and other international terrorist organizations have entered Syria alongside indoctrination because of outside finance. The Council on Foreign Relations is not known for being pro-Assad but an article on their website does delve into the sinister reality of what it happening in Syria.
In a report called Al-Qaeda in Iraq published on the website of the Council on Foreign Relations and which was written by Jonathan Masters and Greg Bruno, it is stated that “The complete withdrawal of U.S. troops in December 2011 and a brewing sectarian crisis in early 2012 have raised fears that AQI may be poised for resurgence. Some experts suggest government corruption and a lack of Sunni-Shiite reconciliation may push Iraq into becoming a failed state. AQI has attempted to exploit sectarian divisions through a string of attacks on Shiite targets in early 2012. Top U.S. intelligence officials have also brought attention to a flow of AQI fighters over the border into Syria where they will likely take up arms against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.”
It is also stated much further down that “In February 2012, U.S. intelligence officials said they believed al-Qaeda is executing most of the high-profile attacks on Syrian military forces, including bombings in Damascus and Aleppo.”
“Fishman says al-Qaeda may be reversing its logistical lines, redirecting resources from Iraq to Syria in order to exploit the fight against the “apostate” Assad (PBS) for its own purposes.”AQI wants to demonstrate that al-Qaeda is part of a resistance movement and a legitimate player in the overthrow of a [Syrian] regime that is rightly understood as tyrannical,” he says. Fishman warns that even a small al-Qaeda presence could “have a very destabilizing effect,” encouraging more moderate elements of the regime–those who have otherwise been willing to compromise–to take up arms against the rebels.”
In the comments above it is obvious that well informed individuals understand the reality of what is happening in Syria despite their negativity towards the political leadership. Also, the religious cleansing of Christians in many parts of Iraq took place because of terrorism and mass indoctrination which followed the Sunni Islamic jihad of hatred in Iraq. Therefore, it doesn’t take much to understand that the liberalism of Syria is under threat because of outside meddling and the role of Sunni Islamic terrorists. These terrorists desire to crush all moderate Sunni Muslims, Christians, Alawites, and the rights of women.
The armed forces of Syria are multi-religious and they are the guardians of a nation which is based on religious pluralism when put into the context of the Middle East. This fact is very important because it is a “civilization based on the mosaic of the Levant.”
Like mentioned before you have a culture in Syria which is highly modern, whereby women participate fully in society, and where different religious communities share “one common home.” This “common home” is called Syria but terrorists and nations which desire to crush the last main bastion of secularism in the Arabic speaking world, have ulterior motives.
The government of Syria is facing the brutal reality of Sunni Islamic terrorism which supports killing apostates, dhimmitude, killing homosexuals, forcing women to cover up from head to toe, stoning women to death for adultery, and other brutal realities. Therefore, just like in Somalia where all Christian converts are hunted down by Sunni Islamic terrorists and killed, and just like Afghanistan where women are whipped by the Taliban and turned into nothing, and just like Nigeria where moderate Sunni Muslim religious leaders and Christians are killed by Sunni Islamic terrorists; then Syria is now fighting this brutal reality.
Saudi Arabian society is based on the institutional hatred of all non-Muslim faiths and hatred towards all moderate Sunni Muslim voices. Syria is multi-religious and women have freedom. Therefore, it is essential that terrorists are crushed in Syria because they desire to spread their hatred and darkness in order to turn Syria into “year zero.”The leader of Syria supports a plural society but the forces of terrorism support a brutal monoculture whereby women will be shackled and all minorities will reside in fear.
Why are major Western nations supporting the brutal reality of Saudi Arabia but turning against a nation which is based on “a rich mosaic of faiths?” Also, where did all the military arms come from which armed the terrorist organizations, which have killed thousands of soldiers, police officers, and civilians? Or are people outside of Syria meant to believe that over 2,000 military soldiers and police officers have been killed by unarmed civilians?
