I don´t see any differencies between Syrian dictator and Egyptian dictator.
Syrian people want freedom from they dictator as well Egyptians from their (who is now in court).
Near history of Middle East is full of massacres when people want different than they "leaders" (whose mostly took they power by military coup d etat (coups).
Sunnis against sunnis, shias against shias, sunnis and shias againt each others...
It is matter of political power for people who have used to believe all power belongs to them.
Sure, believe what you like, you choose to believe whatever you want, ignore the reality of the situation on the ground in Syria.
Freedom of choice, after all.
