Looking at the conflict in Syria from different angles
…supporting the Syrian revolution is not a binary choice of siding with the Muslim Brotherhood against Assad’s fascist secularism. Taking a principled stand against brutality and murder, and for a dream of a better Syria, is a difficult one, but it is not impossible. If you are a Syrian then you should speak up - if you haven’t done so already - and debate the best way you would like to govern your own country. Supporting the Syrian revolution does not mean you are supporting some foreign conspiracy against the country, or that you want to be invaded, it means you are fed up with being afraid to speak your own mind. For far too long, the fear of having your name “noted down” by some of Assad’s secret police has meant that we have all opted for silence. Today that is no longer an option, and as the country hurtles down an abyss, it is more important than ever that each and every one of us starts to articulate our own position.
