Here is the evidence Mr. MacMaster for the kind of politics you are playing in. In this video, the regime's propaganda tv, Dunya, owned by Makhlouf/Assad's cousin, ran this report, saying that Syrian activist leaders are gay. They name Rami Nakhle, a Beirut based Syrian activist, stating that he is gay and lives with his partner in a Beirut Suburb. Regardless of whether he is gay or not, the hoax serves to support the regime's claim that the revolution is a Western-Israeli conspiracy. So if this message reaches you, please shut up!
