> Syrian Opposition Coalition is now inclusive enough
Any idea if the SOC allows non-islamists to live in peace and among the mohamheads?
Not a bad move, given the opposition’s rabid anti-Americanism. Ultimately, their only point of disagreement with Assad is Alawite rule. In all other respects, they are generic anti-American Arabs, except they’re also religious fanatics who admire al Qaeda.
They’ll downplay their fanaticism when Westerners are around. But Ho Chi Minh was feted as Vietnam’s George Washington by an adoring Western media/fellow travelers, and it’s clear how that turned out. Just as it was fashionable for media types to be pro-Communist during the Cold War, it’s now fashionable for them to be pro-Islamist and borderline al Qaeda symps.
SO THEY ARE NOW OPENLY SAYING IT, ‘ WE SUPPORT JIHAD AND TERRORIST GROUPS AS THE LEGITIMATE GOVT OF SYRIA .
AND HERE THEY ARE:
1. Al Nusrah Front
2. Al Ansar Brigades
3. Al Abbas Brigades
4. La Ilaha Ila Allah [There is No God but Allah] Battalion
5. Al Hamza Brigade
6. Al Sa’qah Brigade
7. Jund al Aziz Brigade
8. Izzuddin al Qassam Brigade
9. Abu al Qassam Brigade
10. Brigade of the Da’wa [Preaching] and Jihad Front
