On the contrary, lumping Iran and it’s proxies with the likes of ISIS, AQ and affiliates is lazy false equivalency. Are we seriously suggesting there’s no difference between the likes of Hezbollah and ISIS?Why? It's crucial.
Honestly, your reluctance to even use the word "Islamist" in connection with Iran and their proxies says a lot.
Except you’re making the assumption that those who are opposed to the Syrian opposition are by virtue apologists for the Assad regime, you know full well that’s not the case. It’s not mutually exclusive to be critical of Israel, Assad and the Syrian opposition.This is one of the bizarre consequences of the discourse produced by a certain section of the anti-Israel left during the Syrian Civil War - you have voices who do everything to paint groups like Hamas in a moderate, reasonable light defending Assad by portraying all the forces fighting against him as fanatic terrorists - despite Hamas sharing basically the same ideology and in most cases having been, historically at least, responsible for far more heinous acts.
People who, often with good reason, criticise Israeli conduct during military operations in Gaza then turn around and justify the destruction of entire cities in Syria by Assad on the ground that "Assad is secular/Christians can celebrate Christmas again", etc. as if those things don't apply to Israel.
Your Hamas example also makes no sense considering they backed the Syrian opposition at Assad’s expense.
