“Beware the jihadists”

[AsSafir] "...Many expect a fierce battle to break out between the Salafists and the al-Nusra Front on one hand and the other armed groups on the other, under the pretext of uniting the FSA. That, according to an activist in Aleppo, was what happened with the Christian militias in Lebanon during the 1980s. The FSA cannot unite without settling the Salafist and jihadist issue once and for all. That may happen if the West puts this as condition for sending arms, some believe.There is also growing tension between combatants under military leadership — such as the Syrian Military Council or the Revolutionary Military Council — and Salafists and al-Nusra Front, who do not recognize the military leaders. ..."
