Yes Mike, the “ethnic cleansing” charge that’s been rejected by the UN,
SOHR, and an SNC-sponsored  investigation, and not used in the relatively
fair criticisms of Human Rights Watch or even the more over the top and
unfounded Amnesty reports. But fine to blithely use by the laughable
conspiracy theorist Roy Gutman.

And apparently by you. The most progressive force in the Middle East is
under existential threat and the solidarity you got is “whatever, they had
it coming”. That’s peace and out from me.
