Reader comment on item: Support Assad

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), Apr 14, 2013 at 13:16

Assad is a radical islamist and therefore is deadly dangerous to all Jews and Christians. Plus to all muslims he is a threat.

The rebels are worse. They would be a greater danger to everyone.

So we should help Assad, in limited fashion.

Assad is a war criminal but he is not an Islamist.
