Robin Yassin-Kassab on the character of the Syrian revolution

Robin Yassin0Kassab video

This is a presentation by Robin Yassin-Kassab, co-author with Leila Al-Shami of “Burning Country: Syrians in Revolution & War.” His presentation is a marvelous, succinct elaboration of the Syrian popular movement against Assad.

Unlike Assad propagandists or reluctant Assadists, Yassin-Kassab actually knows something about what is going on; his analysis is not driven by confusions, Muslim or Arab-hating, war propaganda, or rationalizations for dictatorship.
