For the information of new subscribers, Joseph is (was? I am not sure) a 
defender of the Baathist dictatorship, reflecting I suppose the feelings 
of a segment of the Palestinian movement that had those sorry politics 
but not Hamas.

I don't think there's any point belaboring an obviously deranged act 
such as this one that went viral. In terms of moral calculus, I think 
that napalming a schoolyard is far sicker than anything that was ever 
done by the FSA. It was to the everlasting shame of a section of the 
left that it tried to spin Baathist atrocities as the necessary defense 
against jihadists. To my way of thinking, it is like defending the IDF's 
regular blood-letting in Gaza.
