This a very good point to answer because they have been concentrating on it in the media. They use frequently this term: “The Alawi regime” or talking about “The Alawi miority ruling the country” or “the Sunni majority persecuted by the Alawi regime” …etc. Even journalists coming from Europe (who believe the media and have no good knowledge about Syria) come with an idea bearing in their minds that the Alawis are a rich elite that is in power. A Danish journalist from “Politiken” is the last example. He was shocked to see some quarters on the suburbs of Damascus with Alawi majority that they are below intermediate.
Let’s start by saying these facts:
The Syrian General Director of the state Syrian Radio and TV has always been Sunni;
And you know, any Syrian citizen who wants to get a job at the government, he needs the approval of the minister, so it is not only about the ministers themselves, but this means that also the middle class in the government is mostly Sunni.
Only the Republican Guardians in the military is dominated by the Alawi officials, which is very normal. Any president has the right to choose his guardians among people most loyal to him, but I don’t think this can mean that Alawi people “are dominating the country” because of this!
I have also some information that I want to send to you later soon regarding some facts about the demographic situation before 1970 regarding Alawi community.

While Islam promotes learning and honors scientists, the very first verse in holy Quran started with the word Read, prophet Muhammad PBuH insisted on Muslims to ‘seek knowledge even if it’s in China‘ these Wahhabi freaks came out in the name of Islam just to kill scientists and destroy knowledge, which makes us wonder what type of Islam do they actually represent, if it was Islam in the first place?!
