The rebels are diverse. AQ's power, along with that of similarly aligned islamists from groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, within the insurgency has grown over the past two years and I'm not saying that they aren't the dominant force now.

If the Christians actually support Assad, as opposed to hoping that Assad's forces can save them from an even more immediate threat, they're no friends of ours.
