To me, Syria was Assad's to lose, and he lost Syria when he began shooting at peaceful protesters. My being a protesters for do many decades.. it's personal.. I would be horrified if I was at a protest and the government began shooting people.
And while I understand the Church is going to side with government no matter what to stay in Syria.. I don't blame the Syrians who felt betrayed when the Church was not there for them, I do blame the Jihadists, who have come from many Islamic nations to take advantage of the civil war, and that would mean to attack Christians, after all Assad is blowing up Sunni Mosques, and I'm not saying that is a valid reason, but I can see that as an inspiration.. Church stays Summi Mosques go... Assad sure knows how to make Syrians unhappy.
