A Maaloula resident said the rebels, many of them sporting beards and shouting God is great, attacked Christian homes and churches shortly after moving into the village overnight.
They shot and killed people. I heard gunshots and then I saw three bodies lying in the middle of a street in the old quarters of the village,' said the resident, reached by telephone from neighboring Jordan.
'So many people fled the village for safety.'
Now, Maaloula 'is a ghost town. Where is President Obama to see what befallen on us?' asked the man.
Another resident who fled the village of 3,000 inhabitants earlier in the day said in a telephone interview that Assad's forces deployed on the outskirts of the village, while gunmen inside refused to allow anybody in.
He said the gunmen declined to allow fleeing people to take five dead bodies out of the village with them.
He said one of the churches, called Demyanos, had been torched and that gunmen stormed into two other churches and robbed them.
Most of the gunmen are foreigners, he said, adding that he heard different dialects, mainly of Tunisians, Libyans, Moroccans and Chechens.
Another resident, a Christian man, said he saw militants forcing some Christian residents to convert to Islam.
'I saw the militants grabbing five villagers Wednesday and threatening them (saying): `"Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded,"' he said.
The two other residents said they heard about the conversions but did not see them.
All three spoke on condition of anonymity out of fears of retaliation.

If you haven't call your senator or congressman PLEASE do it.
obama doesn’t give a damn for you other than the cover he may use to destroy Israel.
I think our only chance to stop this damn thing is to get Congress to say NO.
I don't have the to stomach to view the video.
I hope the Syrian Christians have a militia and they are hunting down the islamic scum that did this.
Barry sports a beard too.
We also need to find a way of cutting off the flow of weapons our government claims it isn’t giving to the islamists.
Unfortunately I think this has gone on far longer than it would have because of our interference.
I doubt it helps my senator is Mendenez.
My man, "president" obama, as you refer to him ,is one of the daddies of your misery. He is laughing at you. it is his friends, allies, and co horts that are doing this to you. And he [Obama] will not be satisfied until you are dead.
Might not be bad to send Ed Ames to Syria. I recall when he was on Johnny Carson, he had quite a aim too.
Lybians and Tunisians—and where did they get their weapons?
I did find that Libya connection kind of interesting.
Rep. Amash: If Americans Could Read Classified Docs, Theyd Be Even More Against Syria Action
he has even used social media sites to warn his fellow Congress members that if they vote for military action next week, they might as well clean out their desks because of unprecedented public opposition against it.
But for those obama worshipers and voters, their time will come because, by hook or crook, obama will bring those or enough of the mb over here to do here what they did there.
To answer your question...yes.
