Just stumbled across this conversation between a couple of academic 
Assadists--Max Ajl and Justin Podur. I plan to write something about 
this because it really exhibits the twisted logic of "pro-Palestinian" 
activists that back Assad. What I find so shocking is their complaint 
about a virtual hegemony on the left of people expressing ideas like 
mine or Gilbert Achcar. Are they fucking out of their minds? For every 
single piece I write about Syria, there are at least 50 by people like 
Eva Bartlett, Patrick Lawrence, Robert Parry, et al. They remind me of 
the Hans Christian Andersen tale about the pea and the princess. She 
went to bed on 20 mattresses but couldn't get to sleep because a single 
pea under the bottom mattress made that impossible.

I am like that pea.
