Wait: that Alawite statement from leading Alawites III

1) the Alawite community is really non-hiercharhical, unlike other sects.  2) So the "leading Alawites" signed that statement to explain their position to the world but they insisted that the statement not be released but to be seen by the BBC correspondent? 3) so the "leading Alawites" want to make clear where they stand but they withheld their names, but the BBC correspondent on religion was able to ascertain that one of them is indeed "a leading" Alawite.  OK. 4) So the Alawites are so uncomfortable with the stance of the regime that they preferred instead the stance of the enemies of the regime who declare day and night Alawites are infidels and pagans who have to be slaughtered?
