You need to be aware that this is the National Mufti of Syria. He is the suprime religous authority of Syria, and he is expressing the position of Syria toward all religions. Many of you are probably not aware, but Syria is the only country in the Middle east where all religions live peicefully and respecting eachothers. This is a reality not a political position. Ask any Syrian and he will tell you that the people are living in harmony (including with Jews when they were in Syria and before they were instructed to leave Syria agaist their wish by Isreal).
