A grotesque campaign against Armenians--all Armenians--by many supporters of the Syrian "revolution"

Of course, don't expect to read anything about that in the Western press. Even this Qatari regime mouthpiece, Al-Quds Al-`Arabi, is admitting the campaign and justifying it.  There has been a most bigoted and racist campaign against the Armenians--all Armenians--by many supporters of the Syrian revolution accusing them of siding with the Syrian regime.  Now it is true that many Christians in Syria are quite opposed to the Syrian rebels perhaps because they did not buy the dispatches by the likes of Liz Sly of the Washington Post and Anne Barnard of the New York Times who have been insisting since 2011 that the Syrian rebels are moderate and secular and feminist and democratic.  But regardless of one's opinion of those Syrians who support the regime (or who support the rebels for that matter), the campaign against a whole ethnic group should be condemned.

PS Typical in any sectarian and ethnic campaign of bigotry, there is an Aljazeera correspondent who is leading the charge.
