Syria - The Golden Report

It's said that the Devil is in the details. In this case we have two devils fighting each other and it's not easy to decide which one you should be rooting for.

The Assad Alawite Government controlled by the Baath Party is perceived by the Western Media as the Devil and should be taken down - that the poor helpless Syrian civilians are being killed by the thousands. There is some truth to that but it is truth with a lot of spin and the real question is why the real whole truth is not being told? Before I get too far into this let me make it completely clear that I do not consider myself among the elite who have all the inside info concerning what is happening in Syria, but I am pretty close to the action, and may have a little more insight and interest than most reading this.

The "rebels" you are hearing about are not the majority in Syria, in fact they are not even close to being the majority. The majority of the civilians in Syria support Bashar Assad. I find it difficult trying to understand why because he is a monster and a murderer like his father before him who also killed thousands of civilians. And with all that said we need to look at the other devil mentioned here. It is the radical Islamic movement which wants to replace him and kill all the Alawites in Syria. They want to put into place Sharia Islamic Law, much as is happening in Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya and throughout the Islamic Arab world.

This is the viewpoint of a Jewish Christian living in Israel. Jerry's commentary gives us an assessment to contrast with what we read in the "official" news.
