The situation in Syria .... from India's perspective

Good for you India. Don't let the USA or the leftish Western media influence your thinking.  It's better to have the devil you know than the rabid "caliphate dreamers" like the muslim brotherhood funded by the overflowing coffers  from  Saudi Arabia and elsewhere.  

This time round,  let's hope that Canada will keep out of any conflict with Syria, which conflict to all accounts and optics, is being planned by the USA and some other members of NATO and interested parties.  I hope  PM Harper's close circle brings him up to date on Syria and makes him understand that the Syrian govt. is fighting against extremists, as it should.

....The government narrative seems to be succeeding within Syria, even though the media has ensured that it does not cross the boundaries to influence the world in the same manner. But as several officials said the intention is first to get the people to understand and close ranks at this critical hour. The narrative centres around two basic issues close to the hearts of all Syrians, except the Islamists and extremists, namely sovereignty and secularism.

The first argument that has clearly struck home seeks to point out that while President Assad could relinquish power and the Baath party could give up its ‘leading’ role in the country, this could be determined only by the Syrian people and not outside powers. And two, secularism would continue to remain central to Syrian polity and the government will not allow any compromise on this. All senior leaders from the Grand Mufti to the foreign minister made it clear that religious parties like the Muslim Brotherhood have no place in the country that will not give up its secularism at any cost.....

And, if the Indian perspective is not enough, here's what Barry Rubin has to say on islamists raising their heads in Syria ....

The leadership of the Syrian revolution, or at least those recognized as such by the United States and the European Union, has released the names of 19 of the 29 members of the General Secretariat and five members of the Presidential Council. A lot of research should be done on the individuals, but let’s do a quick ethnic and political analysis based on this information.

But first let me give you my analysis: I believe that the Turkish Islamist regime deliberately helped produce a Syrian leadership that is more Islamist and more Muslim Brotherhood-controlled than was necessary.....
