Default The World Turns Away As Rebel Massacres of Syrian Christians Intesify

Amid the Tinsel and Turkey Christmas in the West, spare a thought and a prayer for the Christians in Syria who are just bystanders in the war and are being systematically killed.

Experts say the end goal of many jihadist rebel groups is to eradicate Christianity in Syria as part of the effort to create a fundamentalist Islamic state. Even factions of the Obama-backed “Free Syrian Army,” receiving vast amounts of Western aid under the guise of supporting supposed “moderates,” have been implicated in the anti-Christian atrocities by refugees cited in media reports. Like in Iraq following the U.S. government’s “regime change” operation, the Christian minority in Syria — about 10 percent of the population — could face potential extinction as Western powers continue to shower arms and support on Islamic rebels.

In recent months, ghastly accounts of civilian massacres aimed at Syrian Christian communities in particular have become more frequent and more gruesome. However, despite the apparent surge in anti-Christian savagery often perpetrated by Western-backed jihadist rebels, the establishment press has largely turned away.

Very sad.

I was going to say the West is backing the wrong side. Though on reflection Mr Assad is hardly the right side...

We have here countries playing 'power politics'. Not caring about the human suffering on the ground just what would, or might, enhance their sphere of influence.
Let us hope reason will prevail and a government of national reconciliation can be assembled to bring all sides together and put an end to the violence.
