In fact, syria's sunni's merchant class (not peasantry) are syria's most successful and wealthiest citizens...the christians have also fared very well, with their inclination for entrepreneurship and the trades also keeping them successful and economically comfortable...Syria is a lot of things, corrupt, lacks freedom of speech, antiquated and inefficient bureaucracy...but it is NOT sectarian..syrians are successful and miserable across the board....Israel on the other hand..... All of a sudden these boards are full of syria experts...I understand that as an israeli newspaper, these forums attract ppl who see everything through the prism of the Israel...but ur neighbors are more complex than youve ever understood, and ur understanding and analysis remains as shallow as ever...
