WATCH: Syrians ‘More Afraid Of May Than They Are Of Assad’
A called to Nigel Farage’s show on LBC dropped a bombshell of their own. He told Mr. Farage that he was married to a Syrian Christian. He was in Damascus for the New Year and experienced first-hand “daily” attacks by “terrorists” launching mortars and rockets at civilians. His Syrian family is now not terrified by Assad but the British and American governments.
The caller said that he called the force opposing Assad “terrorists”, not rebels because he did not believe they were rebels. He said that Syrians don’t understand why Western governments support the kind of people who “want to kill all the Christians and the Alawites and all the other minority groups”. Although many Syrians “don’t support Assad” they don’t believe that he was, in fact, responsible for the chemical attack in Douma. He explained that many Syrian soldiers fighting in the government army have family in the disputed region so “why would they drop chemical weapons on them”?
Finally, he asked, “where is the left”? Where are the million people that marched against war in Iraq? Mr. Farage said that they were “out there” but lacked leadership as Mr. Corbyn is focusing on procedure and legalities.
