What is your class analysis of the forms of Sunni Islam dominant in
the Syrian insurgency--especially Wahhabism, Salafism, jihadism,
Muslim Brotherhood-ism? What class interests do you think led the
Qatari and Saudi royal families to arm the FSA (of course "not" with
arms supplied by the CIA)? What do you think is the nature of a
revolutionary process that excludes huge segments of the people but
includes sectarian-motivated foreigners?
