"I joined because I wanted to demolish the secular state..."

[SKYnews] "... Even if the rebels overthrow the government, they won't just have a problem dealing with militia from the minority groups, they will have problems with each other.As the men left to go back to their cells, we shook hands.
Two of them were still trying to convert me, asking me, with a smile, to say the Shahada 'La ilaha il Allah' - there is no God but Allah.
Men like this scare Syria's Christians, Allawites, Shia, Druze, and Kurds, indeed they frighten many of the countries Sunnis, but the war here is now so steeped in blood that compromise seems almost impossible to achieve, and there are now people on both sides who reject compromise out of hand...."
