The ideology behind the Butcher Assad's Baathist fascist, racist regime is backed by the supremacist for 'Greater Syria,' the infamous SSNP. The latest crackdown has claimed over 10,000 people, scores were tortured to death, especially children.
Straight from the horse's mouth about Arabism and Islamism:
President al-Assad meets Levant Scholars\' Union delegation ... Last Update: 11-04-2012 11:59PM Syrian Radio & TV Online As for extremism, the President said that there is nothing called extremism in Islam, adding "Islam is extremist in good and amity and in regards to organizing societies, promoting and developing them." On Islam and Arabism, President al-Assad went on to say that a lot of Arab Muslims have separated Arabism form Islam while the non-Arab Muslim is still linking the two notions.. wondering how we separate the Arabism of the Prophet Mohammad from Islam, and how we separate the holy Quran from Arabism and its Arab and Islamic context while the Prophet had boasted of his Arabism and belonging to Quraish.Source, official Syrian government's monitored site: syriaonline.sy/?f=det&catid=12&pageid=2006
The Hidden Hand:
Middle East Fears of Conspiracy

can’t be done. To be Moslem means to consider being Arab as the greatest thing. Anything else is lower. That’s why Indonesians, Chechens, Pakis etc. try to dress like Arabs
The Arab Socialist Ba’ath (Revival) Party was founded by Michel Aflaq (Greek Orthodox Christian) and Salah al-Din al-Bitar (Sunni Muslim) as a Pan-Arabist alternative to Islam. Before he died, Aflaq became a Muslim, realizing that Islam is Arab nationalism.
I also heard that Aflaq converted to Islam, in any case he praised Islam all his life.
To me Baathism is not absolute friendly but it is much better alternative to islamism.
