    But your "facts" are terrifyingly ignorant. "On what grounds "Syria" was created on jewish biblical lands by some brits" - The French, Rosmary, not the British. "who gave the brits the right to do this" - the French were given this right by the Principal Allied Powers after WW1 at San Remo in 1920. Look it up, you might learn something. "What international law was in support of this creation?" - San Remo, and the text of the League of Nations Mandate for Syria, and the UN, and all the countries of the world who recognise the existance of the State of Syria i.e. every other nation on Earth. "De-islamafication of this land is a kea to the future stability." - riiiiight. And how do you propose to do this? Invade Syria and kill all the inhabitants? Nuke it to a glowing bubble of glass? And then, what, exactly? Do you really think that is a viable option?
