The new fears among the Syrian people

Ever since I started my Facebook page, I noticed an obvious trend: many Arabs from repressive countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Syria in particular) would send me comments privately and would state that they would not feel comfortable writing them publicly).  This has been consistent among Syrian students over the last few years.  But in the last few months, there is a new trend.  Many young Syrians would send me things privately about the thuggery and criminality of the Free Syrian Army and would ask me to keep their comments private out of fear of FSA retributions.  The Syrian people have been terrorized by the Syrian regime and now they are terrorized by the Free Syrian Army gangs.
