The stories told by five top Syrian Christian leaders about the horrors their churches are experiencing at the hands of Islamist extremists are biblical in their brutality.
Bishop Elias Toumeh, representative of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and All the East, tells of the funeral he led ten days ago for the headless body of one of his parishioners in Marmarita. Rev. Adeeb Awad, vice moderator of the National Evangelical Synod of Syria and Lebanon, explains how the rebels blew up his church and then pointed the finger at the regime. Bishop Armash Nalbandian, primate of the Armenian Church of Damascus, says he received word on Facebook from a fellow bishop in Aleppo that two congregants were traveling when opposition fighters stopped their bus, made them present their Armenian IDs, and then took them away. The fighters, Nalbandian recounts, returned to the fellow passengers a few hours later with a box, which they said were cakes. Inside were the two Armenian heads.
The bishops stories are difficult to independently verify, and the wars death toll goes far beyond just Christian communities in Syriamore than 130,000 people have been killed since the fighting began, and at least two million others have fled the country. But they are emerging as part of a concerted push by Syrian Christians to get the U.S. to stop its support for rebel groups fighting Syrian president Bashar al Assad. The US must change its politics and must choose the way of diplomacy and dialogue, not supporting rebels and calling them freedom fighters, says Nalbandian.

Little Lindsey Graham had better get word to his Al Qaeda in Iraq buddies that the Iraqi Christians are ratting Graham’s Iraqi friends out. Graham & McCain don’t want too much info to get out on exactly what and who they and Obama have been supporting.
Being as the Obungler sides with his Muslim brothers, I am sure this is part of the plan. The ROP and communism are the scourges of the world, and have got to go.
Christians are listed as perpetrators, not victims. Get with the program. You’re a white male aren’t you?
What????? The Christians don’t like being murdered by the peace-loving moozlums? How dare they?
