This is a brilliant theory about why the Syrian rebels are predominantly sectarian: from the Carnegie Endowment of International War

"and sectarian manipulation by the regime".  I don't mean to bother you but can you explain further how that manipulation occurred? Like Nusrah, ISIS, and FSA and even the Qatari and Saudi branches of the exile opposition were all staunch secularists but then the regime manipulated them and they suddenly started spouting sectarian venom?  How does that work, if you care to explain to me?
