Islamists among the Syrian rebels–whom the United States is supporting–are engaged in “religious cleansing” against that country’s 2 million Christians. Many are being murdered, dying for their faith. Details after the jump.
From Nina Shea, The Shadow War Against Syria’s Christians | National Review Online:
On June 23, Catholic Syrian priest Fr. François Murad was murdered in Idlib by rebel militias. How he was killed is not yet known and his superiors “vigorously deny” that he was a victim of beheading, as some news sources are claiming. It is apparent, however, that he was a victim of the shadow war against Christians that is being fought by jihadists alongside the larger Syrian conflict. This is a religious cleansing that has been all but ignored by our policymakers, as they strengthen support for the rebellion. [The story goes on to give grim details about Fr. Murad’s murder.] . . . .
