Shunning is problematic.

I don't think that Syria can be a litmus test for left unity even though 
the positions adopted, for example, by the Alan Woods sect are ghastly.

For example, if there was a protest against fascists in Britain, you can 
expect this sect, CounterFire, and other pro-Russian leftists to be 
involved in the organizing. It, of course, is their contradiction that 
the fascists are likely to agree more with Alan Woods than with them on 
Putin.
