Most of the brave leaders of the Syrian revolution who fought against the regime are isolated and deserted. Those who remained in Syria are impoverished, while others who defected from the regime and fled to Europe as refugees are keeping their heads down for fear of the possibility of being tried as war criminals.

The dramatic story of Imam Ayashi and his role as an informant, forces us to contemplate the extent of foreign infiltration of two other powerful jihadi groups that have emerged during the Syrian revolution
Moreover, even without acquiring nuclear weapons, Iran still poses a danger through its direct support for terrorist proxies which have undermined international peace and security.
