All Syrian radical leftists are in jail

For those who ask where the Syrian leftists are--and I am talking about real, radical leftists and not those Syrian Wahhabi liberals who express their so-called progressive sentiments in the publications of the various Saudi princes--they are in jail.  Many of the members and top leaders of radical Syrian leftist groups, and even independent leftists are in jail.  The regime is particularly severe against leftists and Nasserist Arab nationalist.  It is an old Ba`thist complex.
