Rebels have threated to storm two predominantly Christian towns in central Syria if residents do not evict government troops they say are using the towns as a base to attack nearby areas.
A video released by rebels showed Rashid Abul-Fidaa, who identified himself as the commander of the Ansar Brigade for Hama province, calling on locals in Mahrada and Sqailbiyeh to rise up against President Bashar Assads forces or prepare for an assault.
Assads gangs in the cities are shelling our villages with mortars and rockets destroying our homes, killing our children and displacing our people, said Abdul-Fidaa, who wore an Islamic headband and was surrounded by gunmen. You should perform your duty by evicting Assads gangs, he said. Otherwise our warriors will storm the hideouts of the Assad gangs.

Aren’t the rebels supposed to be the good guys?
There aint no good guys in this mess.
How are Christians supposed to toss out Assad’s troops.
They cannot——The rebels know this.
It’s just an excuse to kill Christian civilians when they take over the town.
Meanwhile in Hawaii, will Obama go to Christian services this year? If Obama be a Christian, I be da Pope.
Assad is the only protection that the Christians have.
Thanks Olog-hai. Pravda ping.
Obama has flow off to his Hawaiian “Eagle’s Nest”.
Wonderful, now US assets and US government employees can use US supplied military weapons to murder Christians loyal to their internationally recognized legal government, as an illegal mercenary force fighting for the Muslim Brotherhood.
Here in America, the official party line is that the rebels are the good guys. The reality appears to be that most of the rebels are Islamic fundamentalists with ties to al Qaeda.
Obama wants Assad out, and them in power. Massacring a couple Christian towns won't weigh heavily in the decision process.
Very correct analysis. And look what happened to the Christians of Iraq - same story.
The world doesn’t give a $hit. But just let one Christian or Jew SAY something about the bearded savages, and he is torn to shreds.
Another 4 million down the Obama vacation crapper.
Old man Assad and his son are Christian friendly. So was Saddam. It is the Muslim Brotherhood that has it in for Christians. Old man Assad (Hafez Assad) leveled the Muzz Brotherhood town of Hama in 1982. Killing 20,000 people. The Brotherhood has not forgotten
The Alewite sect that rules Syria venerates the Virgin Mary. Another reason The Brotherhood despises the Assad regimes
“..as an illegal mercenary force fighting for the Muslim Brotherhood.”
That’s being armed by the filthy saudis, qataris & US.
We’re guilty by association.
You got hung up on Christians....... the bad guys are the Syrian Army hiding or defending amongst the Christians.
The Christians are being notice to get out of Dodge before the coming onslought
