It is a revolution, no it is resistance, no it is glory

Reporting on Syria in the West, including sometimes in Jadaliyya, is not about reporting.  It is about a competition to serve emotionally the propaganda cause of the Syrian armed groups.  Here, the armed fanatical groups are referred to as "resistance".  I guess "revolution" was not kind enough.  Why not call them: the angels of Syria whose use of firearms, like Israel, is harmless.

PS The term "resistance" in reference to the armed groups was removed from the article.
