More tales of pain and woe from the Christian people of Syria have come to light as we react in horror to the Obama administration decision to waive anti-terror laws to arm the Syrian rebels who are oppressing them.
The Christian Post reported:
Ghastly attacks on Christians mocked as “Crusaders” in Syria continued unabated as Jihadists reportedly forced one man to convert to Islam at gunpoint and slit the throat of another Christian woman’s fiancé and then told her, “Jesus didn’t come to save him.”
Residents who fled from the ancient town of Maalula in Syria told AFP that jihadists ambushed the town last week and forced a man to convert to Islam at gunpoint.
“They arrived in our town at dawn… and shouted ‘We are from the Al-Nusra Front and have come to make lives miserable for the Crusaders,” said one woman identified as Marie in Damascus, where many people from Maalula fled after rebels first attacked that town on Sept. 4.
Another Maalula resident, Rasha said the jihadists brutally murdered her fiancé Atef, who was a part of the town’s militia.
“I rang his mobile phone and one of them answered,” she said.
“Good morning, Rashrush,” a voice answered, calling her by her nickname according to AFP. “We are from the Free Syrian Army. Do you know your fiancé was a member of the shabiha (pro-regime militia) who was carrying weapons, and we have slit his throat?”
Rasha said the man told her Atef was asked to denounce his faith and convert to Islam and he refused.
“Jesus didn’t come to save him,” the rebel taunted.
That guy on the other end on the phone from the Free Syrian Army? Yeah, that would be one of the guys the Obama administration wants to arm with more weapons.
