""For many Syrians Nusra is synonymous with al-Qaeda. Many of their fighters are foreign jihadists; some fought with al-Qaeda in Iraq. Mr Rasoul sought to deny that they were extremists: "There is a wrong image in the West that Jabhat al-Nusra is Scarface. Jabhat al Nusra is human and we don't hate anyone. We don't hate Christians. "We are not al-Qaeda. Just because some of our members share in its ideas, it doesn't mean we are part of the group." ""
