|Senator thanks President Assad for saving Syrian Christians from jihadists |
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad should be lauded for his efforts to protect Christians from the radical militants of the Islamic State, according to Virginia State Sen. Richard Black. In May, the Republican wrote a letter to the Syrian leader, openly thanking his army and air force for providing protection from jihadists. As the IS threat grows, the senator believes showing support for the Assad is becoming even more important. RT’s Ameera David spoke to Black to get his anti-“groupthink” take on the crisis.
