The Banality of Genetic Wars
It appears that the good peasants of Hula, who are Sunni (the majority), had a week before raided a neighboring Alawi (the ruling minority) village and killed several families. The Hula massacre - universally condemned - was in fact an act of calculated ethnic vengeance. The conflict is assuming naked ethnic (genetic) format, as predicted from the beginning. This is Middle East politics.
Assad's Alawi regime cannot and will not give up power and no democratic elections will take place in Syria. Assad's defeat will be followed by pogroms and massacres and they know it. The ethnic strife has extended already to Tripoli, Lebanon, where ten people were killed yesterday. Israeli government maintains "radio silence" and no one is saying anything about Syria. We dont want to be involved in this murderous genetic war.
