Tonight at 8pm on Ernest Radio Network, it's Political Gravity.
The factionalism today in Syria is the result of Bashar al Assad building a secular government which in the beginning promoted women's rights. He was an Alawite, a minority Islamic who had cleavages with Muslim Brotherhood, once being stabbed by one member.
Your host Jane Hoffman will also talk about French rule and the Hama massacre in February 1982, when the Syrian Arab Army, under the orders of President, Hafez al-Assad, besieged the town of Hama for 27 days in order to quell an uprising by the Muslim Brotherhood.
