Syria’s civil war is a standard Arab Muslim blood feud, pitting various clans and tribes against each other in ever-shifting, ever-widening, and ever-confusing configurations. Arab Muslim blood feuds are like Rube Goldberg devices, only drenched in blood, with a single audio loop of “Allahu Akbar.”
Sunni, Shia and Alawite commit atrocities on a daily basis—so far there have been over 70,000 fatalities in Syria, overwhelmingly civilian—and at least a million refugees trudging around. Of course, this should qualify as Islamophobia, but you’ll never hear CAIR or the New York Times come to such an obvious conclusion because that term is reserved for hate-filled Danish cartoonists who draw pictures of Mohammed, or the nasty citizens of Massachusetts who didn’t give the Tsarnaev brothers enough hugs or enough welfare, thus forcing those two nice boys to become IslamoNazi terrorists.
Of course, the Syrian civil war is also part and parcel of the continuing war by the genocidal-yearning Iranians against Israel. Iran wants to wipe the Jewish state off the face of the earth, and Israel—talk about chutzpah—would prefer to keep breathing.
