Shaykh Hamza Yusuf:
He [Allah] shows His justice to those who have no mercy and He shows His mercy to those who show mercy and these [the Assad regime and its thugs] are people who have proven themselves beyond the pale of mercy. They have shown no mercy, and so no mercy will be shown to them. Allah [the most exalted] will reveal himself [not physically of course] to these people [the Assad regime and its thugs] who have been destroying the homes, the villages, the hearts and even the children. This is how beyond the pale it’s come to where they can torture children. People like Hamza Al-Khatib, he will have his day. The people that did what they did to him and all the children of Dar’a and all the children of Darayya and all the children of Damascus and Aleppo and Hama. All of these places. They will have their day. Their Lord will not allow those things to have taken place with the free will that he’s given us in this world. He [Allah] will not leave them [the victims of Assad’s gangs] without judgement on those who tyrannized them and we believe this. Allah the most exalted is a just Lord and His justice will be established against those who abused their power.
…the leadership of the Shia in Lebanon and Iran have revealed themselves to be the political machiavellian people that they are. They have revealed themselves to side with the tyrant against those who are oppressed, but the shia people, many of these people have nothing to do with that.
