Members of the terror organization Jabhat al-Nusra execute a blindfolded and bound "Alawite man". In the speech before his killing his murderer thanks God for allowing Nusra to capture the 'Nusayri Apostate', an Alawite.
There can be no doubting not only the brutal crime but the poisonous sectarian motivations behind it. It also can be possible that he isn't even Alawi, just a false accusation by the terrorists.
The footage and many others like it depicting the sectarian murder of Alawites emphasises the threat posed to Syria's minorities by the Islamist extremist groups who constitute the vast bulk of the opposition's military power.
