Macedonian Muslims and Christians pray together for peace

After years of religious conflict and death, two leaders in their respective religions brought their people side by side- in prayer- Muslim and Christian; Sri Lanka tops Lebanon is progress; and al-Qaeda killing FSA leaders in Syria.
Where Does Jabhat al-Nusra End, and the Islamic State of Iraq & ash-Sham Begin?
In short, the ISIS-JN relationship as it plays out on the ground is far more complex than the tensions at the highest levels of leadership might suggest. It cannot be reduced to simple dichotomies.
If anything, examining this relationship provides a textbook case of the fragmented nature of rebel groups.
Abu Ayman told me in the face, “We shall wipe out all the FSA leaders. None of them will be spared.” That’s what he said.
In truth, we don’t want these aliens in our midst. We don’t need them. We don’t want fighters from outside Syria.
