A report on ISIL and its agenda, first hand from a visit to Syria

In the Western media, it is very difficult to see the truth of Syria and ISIL. Richard Edmondson (an American) has just returned:

I recently returned from Syria, where I attended an International Conference on Terrorism and Religious Extremism sponsored by the Syrian Ministry of Justice (see my previous post on the event here), and where I had a chance to experience just a small taste of what life is like in a country under siege by a menace so evil it is the stuff of nightmares.

Bashar Assad is demonised in the Western media – unsurprisingly. Edmondson quotes from a conversation with Muhani Al-Fayadh, a sheikh, or tribal chieftain, from the eastern Syrian province of Deir ez-Zor:

“They cannot eliminate our government because it has widespread public support,” he said. “Any Syrian citizen now represents the government; we are defending our dignity, our land, our territory. When you have seen what is happening to the people—how they are being killed and raped—how could you not support the government?”
