Ajami tells the complicated tale of how Hafez al Assad father of the current President Bashar al Assad came to power through eliminating rivals and buying the allegiance of the military and the silence of other potentially influential groups Ruling for almost thirty years Hafez had one one goal in the year 2000 and that was for his son to succeed him which he did Portrayed as a modern Western educated physician who was worldly and sophisticated Bashar s reign has been even explicitly violent against any form of dissent using tactics like starving towns and cities of water and food The author weaves the tapestry of how complex the international stage is in Syria Although many large powers like Iran China and Russia have their hooks into Syria others like Hezbollah and Saudi Arabia also try to influence President Assad but he is like an orchestra conductor Ultimately the score that is played is his which means that he will likely remain in power no matter how much his people have to suffer Unlike most foreign policy books there is no magical policy prescription at the end Western intervention or arming the Syrian rebels would reading this story be a total disaster and would inevitably fuel the already strong anti American anti Western anti modernism which helps keeps regimes in place in the Middle East Good reading but not a happy story

France carved Lebanon out of Syria They created a country for the Maronite Christians of Mount Lebanon The French included Tripoli as part of Lebanon but it had few Maronite Christians and perhaps should have remained as part of Syria The French also excised Alexandretta and Antioch from Syria and gave them to Turkey Jordan was also carved out of Syria but by the British rather than the French Syria is important to Russia because Russia has a naval base in Tartus Syria The 4 main cities of Syria are Damascus Aleppo Homs and Hama Syria has traditionally been Sunni but has included many minorities Druze Ismailis Kurds Christians and Alawis The Alawis are a Muslim sect nominally Shia but even farther away from orthodox Sunni Islam They have historically been a poor people a minority in Syria and under the thumb of Sunni rulers This changed when the Baath Party took control of Syria and when the Alawi Hafez al Assad became dictator of Syria forty years ago The poor Alawi peasants joined the military out if economic necessity The rich and urban Sunnis were able to avoid military service and this lead to their downfall because the Alawis took control of the military and eventually the country But the Alawis have had only modest gains during the rule of Hafez al Assad He did appoint many Alawis to positions of power in order to protect himself But Assad did little to help the poor Alawis Assad also allowed the Sunnis to play a major role in his government and the family courts continued to follow Sunni law The Sunnis and the Christians dominate the private sector The Syrians see Lebanon as part of a greater Syria and believe they have the right to be involved in its affairs In 1977 the Syrians assassinated the Druze leader Kamal Jumblatt In February 2005 the Syrians assassinated the Sunni politician Rafik Hariri Later that year the Syrians assassinated the Greek Orthodox journalists Samir Kassir and Gebran Tueni who had been critical of Syria In 2000 Hafez al Assad died and power passed to his son Bashar Assad The Arab Spring of 2011 encouraged many Syrians to rebel against the new dictator who had failed to bring liberal reforms to Syria The Syrian rebels are rural poor and religiously observant rather than secular The Syrian military killed many peaceful protesters The Assad regime s soldiers were ordered to kill unarmed civilians under threat of being killed themselves The Syrian rebels are mostly Sunni so they are supported by foreign Sunnis such as the Saudis and the Muslim brotherhood The rebels are opposed by Shia leaders such as Prime Minister Maliki of Ira Syrian Christians fear that regime change would lead to the persecution of Christians as had occurred in Ira and Egypt The Arab League has sent in 50 monitors as observers but has taken only limited measures against the Assad regime
