Despite the picture of Slavok Zizek, his racist idiocies play a very small part in this video of Syrian revolutionist Yassin Al Haj Saleh succinctly but cogently refuting the betrayals of the Syrian Arab Spring uprising by so-called left intellectuals like Zizek & Tariq Ali who have taken the same political course as Christopher Hitchens on the Iraq War. It’s becoming clear that Assad supporters are an Islamophobic, rightwing cult–a large cult, but nevertheless, a propaganda cult, not an intellectual current. Yassin, who is now in exile, has written many invaluable articles & a book titled “Impossible Revolution” about the Syrian revolution against Assad.
