'Traitors': Why Armed Opposition Fails to Win Hearts and Minds of Syrians
28 January 2017A wonderful interview with Film maker Olga Nakkas and other analysts.
"Syrian political analyst Ghassan Kadi echoed Nakkas.
"Syria was never perfect and probably never will be. Racial, religious and sectarian divides have plagued humanity everywhere. If anything, because of its kaleidoscopic demographic fabric, Syria is more vulnerable to strife than most other nations," Kadi told Sputnik commenting on the issue.
"Nonetheless, Syrians of different ethnicities and backgrounds have lived in harmony for centuries. It is worthy to note that despite the current strong Sunni/Shiite rift, the last 'battle' between the two camps was 1,300 years ago," he stressed."Pictures speak louder than words. This photo, taken in a Damascus rally in 1925 against the French occupation, displays in its bottom right corner a cross, a crescent and the Star of David. Such was Syria pre-Wahhabism and Israel," Kadi remarked."
