ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the position taken by the Israeli Communist Party General Secretary Muhammad Nafa'a in defending Syrian President Bashar Assad. He argues that Nafa'a's position downplays the role people played in the uprising, more so the victims whom he belittles. He also comments on the accusations made against the revolting Syrians of cooperating with the U.S. and Israel.
