Armed men claiming to be Syrian rebels have kidnapped relatives of outspoken US-based Middle East expert Majid Rafizadeh, who tells FRANCE 24 the captors are more likely to be militiamen loyal to President Bashar al-Assad.

Question to Joseph Bamat when you wrote "But Rafizadeh, who often criticises the regime in the US and international media ", please  tell us where ??? when ?? can you prove your saying or we should admit it only because you are supposed to be a good journalist and do your own research ?? on a du mal à vous croire !!

NIAC self proclaimed representant of all iranians (and not only Irano-american one) always exceeds the limit set !

Among the NIAC 's ambassador we have a Syrian Iranian American ?!!! soon we will see a Lebanese Palestinian Iranian American  ???? and Niac will be the represantant of the whole middle east ??!!!!...This reminds us of good old days  of PLO :D  Niac is far from being a Iranian (Patriotic ) lobby !!!

To All this "scholar' who are very deaf : Na Gaze Na lobnan Janam fadaye Iran ! (the slogan works for Syria too )


Doesn't make sense

1. He is NIAC ambassador.  2. NIAC, as many claim on IC, is IRI appeasement advocate.  3. IRI supports Assad.

So, why would Assad' militia kidnap his family members ?

The people in the Footage however seem to claim the contrary and that they have successfuly just caught IRanian Supporters of Assad's Regime
