Syria’s Christians Flee Kidnappings, Rape, Executions

Syria’s Christians Flee Kidnappings, Rape, Executions.

By now there is no denying that Al-Qaeda affiliated Jihadists are targeting Christians. But, we should never forget that most of the damage done to Christian communities and towns since the beginning of the Revolution was done by pro-Assad militias, a fact that continues to be under-reported if not downright ignored as one of those bloody inconveniences that, if acknowledged, would call for some action. Another important observation in regard to the Christian communities in Syria is the role played by high-ranking figures in the Christian religious establishment. for just like most of their Sunni counterparts, they have proven what so many Syrian activists have known for a long time, that they are mere puppets in the hand of the regime, and instruments for exerting control over and manipulating the sentiments of the country’s Christians.
