Syria is a secular nation and while Assad may be an alawite dictator, at least he doesn't try to cram Islam and Sharia down all our throats. FSA rebels are terrorists being led by Muslim Brotherhood.

To Jerusalem ofcourse, and then they just might get those 1 million martyrs they keep carnival barking for.
