Call out to the European Union and the international community to protect the minorities and the democratic movement in Syria

The Syrian revolution started with peaceful protests against the Syrian dictatorship in March 2011. Now it has changed into a proxy civil war. Besides Russia, Iran, Iraq, and Hezbollah who are supporting Assad’s terror regime, other forces like the Gulf States, Turkey, and other Sunni countries are supporting the armed rebels. At present, there is not any longer space left for a peaceful democratic opposition. On the contrary, Islamic – extremist groups have infiltrate these democratic movements, with the intention to establish an Islamic theocracy, based on Islamic law, the Shari’a.
