alawis morrocco and syria

Reader comment on item: The Alawi Capture of Power in Syria
in response to reader comment: Confused about Alawis! What exactly is their religion? My research

Submitted by Amine (Saudi Arabia), Aug 5, 2012 at 03:14

Just to be clear, the alawi of morocco are sunnis, please do not confuse them with the alawi of syria. The alawis of syria are nusayris, the french gave them the name of alawis. I hope this is clear.

Regards

Amine from Saudi Arabia
