Supporters of Syrian regime

One of the most offensive argument about Arab uprisings have been produced in recent months by supporters of the Syrian regime in Syria and Lebanon.  They basically now say that the Arab uprisings are the work of a US/Israeli plan to divide the region.  They even say that uprisings are bad and that democracy is not suitable because the Arabs are not ready for it.  They say that current regimes are preferable to any change.  They resort to racist Orientalist cliches about Arabs to justify their stances in support of the Syrian regime.  Anything to stay in power.
