If the political labels were reversed, the UNSC would have met over this case

You won't read about this case in any of the US newspapers.  If an opponent of the Syrian regime was shot by supporters of the regime, this murder would have been made famous around the world.  Make no mistake about it.  "Ali Ibrahim was shot on his Sydney doorstep early on Monday morning. Two men fired three shots into his knees, and he may not be able to walk again.  His family believe it was because of his support for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad - which he expressed in a dispute on Facebook."  It is not known if Gene Sharp inspired the attackers.
