This study recently came out, trying to prove that the Syrian rebels by and large want democracy (isn’t that a popular word these days?):
The survey by the International Republican Institute, which trains democracy activists around the world, found high support for a government that “respectfully acknowledges religion” and treats all religions equally. The second-most popular model of choice was for a constitution “based on Islam.”
“Most of the opposition is Sunni Muslims and they are democratically minded, but they want a government based on some kind of Islamic law or that follows Islamic guidelines,” says Elizabeth O’Bagy, an analyst at the Institute for the Study of War who helped the survey writers find contacts in the opposition movement.
The survey was conducted with help from Pechter Polls of Princeton, N.J., which used personal networks of opposition members to reach 1,168 participants via the Internet, including 315 opposition members in Syria from June 1 to July 2. It was released Friday. Respondents were asked to rank their support, on a scale of 1 to 7, of various statements about a future Syrian government.
A government styled on that of France, the United States and Turkey received the highest marks. A government styled on Iran or Iraq received the lowest marks.
They tended to agree that government should protect minorities, even members of President Bashar Assad’s Alawite sect, atheists and apostates.
Whoever believes this rubbish, please look through this video which reveals leaked footage of atrocities committed by the beloved rebels:
