I read the article----I missed the part about the Netherlands' support of the
mass murderer ASSAD
There's some truth to this.
I found out from the BBC (who would have thought?) last night, that when the Americans invaded Iraq, Bashar got scared, paranoia being rife in the Assad family, and released a bunch of terrorists from a Syrian jail, to go and fight the coalition in Iraq.
Little realising that those same terrorists would return as 'rebels', to fight his government.
In other words, a mild mannered ophthalmic surgeon practising in London, becomes responsible for the upheaval and instability in the Middle East.

"Syria has historically offered assistance to Iraqi refugees. At the beginning of 2007, the UNHCR estimated that the number of Iraqi refugees in Syria was over 1.2 million. 80–90% of the Iraqi refugee population lives in the capital city of Damascus. The reason for its large refugee population can be attributed to more than just geography. Until 2007, Syria maintained an open-door policy to Iraqis fleeing the war-ravaged country."

The Assad/dynasty is another matter altogether. The BBC did an excellent coverage of the family, all the diplomats involved over the years, the consensus being that Assad himself has brought about the tragic events we see today.
There's a saying from that part of the world, which could apply to all the naive heads of state and diplomats involved with that country.
"You can promise a sausage sandwich to someone, and leave the sausage out."
Citing a source (at least in this context) that was active in creating the anti-Assad mood to manipulate the public opinion sounds silly.
