ICG report on Syria: the Jihadis

A colleague who does not wish to be identified sent me this:  "Did you read the ICG report on Salafists in Syria? it basically says that there are three main fighting groups in Aleppo, two of them are Jihadi Salafists (one of which officially adopted by al-Qa`ida). The crazier part is that, for me, there was no way of telling the difference between the "Salafist" groups and the "moderate" Islamist ones, they have the same slogans and symbols and objective".
