Christians Killed in Syria

Remember yesterday when I posted about Rand Paul’s objections to arming the Syrian rebels?  Remember when I said that Christians would die at the hands of the rebels?

I didn’t know it when I posted, but Christians are already being slaughtered en masse in Syria, according to this report.  From the article:

“Members of the Free Syrian Army reportedly attacked the Christian-dominated al-Duvair village in Reef on the outskirts of Homs on Monday, where they massacred its citizens, including women and children, before the Syrian Army loyal to Bashar al Assad intervened on behalf of the Christians.”

Marty and I have said repeatedly that caution should be used when even thinking of arming the Syrian rebels.  We have said that we don’t know who our friends really are in that country, and the proof is here, now.  Again, from the article:

“The U.S. and other Western governments that are backing the FSA have acknowledged the presence of jihadists but insist that they’re only a small part of the rebel movement. However, al-Qaeda and other Islamic extremist groups have been at the front of the rebel movement since day one of the Syrian war that began two years ago. According to German intelligence, 95 percent of the rebels aren’t even Syrian.”

Someone please send this article to John McRINO.
