Since the beginning of the Syrian revolution, Bashar Al-Assad's regime has tried to present itself at home and abroad as the protector of minorities. The game of "protecting minorities" is not new, of course, but has been used many times by occupiers for the purposes of justifying their occupation of our land or to pass some of their criminal policies. Under the pretext of protecting minorities, they did anything they wanted, while everyone knew that the least of their concerns was to protect minority groups, whom they used for dirty purposes and the well-known colonial tactic of divide and rule. Occupations have harmed minorities much more than they have ever benefited them, and sometimes made them look like collaborators in the eyes of the majority.
