Why Not Fight for a Regime Change?

With a death toll of over 2,000, countless imprisonments for offenses such as “weakening nationalist sentiment”, and the documented torture of protesters by government officials, what could keep Syrians from favoring a regime change? Well, according to Suhair Atassi, who runs the Jamal Atassi forum that was banned by Syrian officials, “The Syrian regime has established in the minds of people such terrible dualism: ‘to keep the regime or descend into chaos’ as if it is the guarantor of stability in the country. It is merely cosmetic stability strongly imposed by using repression and fear. People are afraid of repeating Iraq’s scenario. Despite the intense resentment they have reached, they are afraid of change for the worse.”
Is it possible that the end of the Assad regime could be worse for Syrian citizens, especially religious minority groups who have only been able to exist under the protection of the iron fisted Assad regime? No other Middle Eastern country, except for Lebanon, has such a vast number of religious and ethnic groups; Christians, Muslims, Alawis, Ishmaelites, and Druze coexist because of the laws and policies the Ba’ath party enacted when they came to power. Although the Ba’ath party encourages citizens to embrace Islam as their “national culture”, they are “heavily opposed any inclusion of religion in matters of state”.
If Sunni political leaders are successful in their democratic revolts will they continue to protect religious minorities? Or will the situation go from bad to worse; from democratic revolt to civil war?
