A new video posted to YouTube by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) shows a Syrian opposition protest in which the demonstrators call for an Islamic caliphate. The video, which was taken in September but just posted to YouTube today, reveals disturbing divides among many in Syria as to just what the future of that country should be, were Bashar al-Assad to fall.

The following translation is taken from the video:

Demonstrator: Oh Bashar, you traitor…
Crowds: Oh Bashar, you traitor…
Demonstrator: We want to instate the Koran.
