The Salah Jadid's party

After I posted on the Salah Jadid's party, I received a message from a former minister in the Salah Jadid's government in the 1960s and he cautions me against praise for the party (despite my opposition to the Ba`th--in practice and ideology).  He tells me that the party carries a sectarian agenda.

PS The leader of the group categorically rejected the accusation and shared with me personal details about the repression that members of the party went through, especially after 1982 due to their effort in forming the oppositional At-Tajammu` Al-Watani Ad-Dimuqrati.
