Amer al-Sadeq is the pseudonym of a Syrian activist who has been working to topple the regime of Bashar al-Assad since the uprising began more than two years ago. He's based in Damascus.
Al-Sadeq says many Syrians who work for the Assad government are in fact aiding the rebel movement. But he admits that elements of Syria's opposition movement face deep internal divisions.
"We, as the opposition, out of desperation and out of frustration of the extended inability for us to achieve our goal of toppling the regime and having Syria as a democracy are getting ourselves busy with finding each others defects," Al-Sadeq says. "This is very sad for me, actually, and I know this extends the suffering of Syrian people even more. I seriously condemn everybody doing that."
