Shia vs Sunni

in response to reader comment: The word is out: Egyptians are against any attack on the Syrian regime because they believe that the rebels are terrorists

Hi DNM,

interesting that the Sunni Egyptians regard the Sunni (mostly Syrian) rebels as terrorists- does that mean they support the Shia/Alawite regime..? I recall Morsi making noises about how Egyptians should go over to Syria and join the jihad. It does not make sense unless these are entirely secular opinions, a rarity. But then, not much about what is going on in those parts does (sectarian killing and infighting amongst the 'rebels')
