Ben Macintyre on the Alawites
If you wonder what’s going on in Syria, an article in The Times today, by Ben MacIntyre gives a very sound and fearful insight into the world and history of the Alawites. One quote from the article follows.
Many fear the fall of Assad will give rise to wholesale retribution.
Everybody who wants to make a statement about Syria, should read this article. If you can’t get hold of a copy, at least read the Wikipedia article.
I doubt that we’ll ever get anywhere with Assad and this bunch.
