28. I agr ee, to an extent.

Certainly more sober analysts supporting Israel's security SHOULD support Assad. The Sunni supremacists are filled with hatred for Alawites and Jews both. Assad's own grandfather was just fine with Zionism. Syrian Baathism is only nominally opposed to it, and the Alawite are in a strategically precarious position that is not dissimilar from European Jewry in an earlier period.
