Oh please! I'm not "putting anyone on trial." Phillip posted material on
this list as if it represented his views. Like any other post.

If Phillip doesn't agree with what was written on his website, all he has
to do is say so and correct the views he doesn't agree with. If he wants to
defend those views then he can do so like anyone else. I'm here for
discussion, obviously, and I happen to disagree with the notion that the
Syrian revolution is a sectarian struggle, and I see no evidence that
Allawites are regularly targeted for their religion. That's a possible
point of discussion but not a view I've seen much on this list, nor one
that I think Phillip could well defend.

By the way, it's alright to admit your past mistakes when you become aware
of them. In fact it's a very good idea. And it's a hell of a lot better
than sticking to them out of stubbornness, thus repeating them time after
time.
