Surely this must be a misprint. A typo. Or just plain false, as we all know Assad’s opposition are staunch freedom loving freedom fighters. Maybe not boy scouts but, they are rebelling against ..... erm, just what is their rebellion all about anyway? Never mind. Our glorious western leaders who can’t manage their own affairs (in the bedroom and out) or run a personal budget without skimming off public funds, the honorable gentlemen have told us Assad is the baddie and must go. They will decide who runs the Syrian state by helping one tribe against another.
Lets take a look a just one portion of that other tribe.
Syria rebels ‘beheaded a Christian and fed him to the dogs’ as fears grow over Islamist atrocities
Christian Andrei Arbashe, 38, was kidnapped and beheaded by rebel fighters in northern town of Ras Al-Ayn on the Turkish border
News came as pro-government forces celebrated their victory against rebels near Aleppo Airport

Syrian rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to dogs, according to a nun who says the West is ignoring atrocities committed by Islamic extremists.
The nun said taxi driver Andrei Arbashe, 38, was kidnapped after his brother was heard complaining that fighters against the ruling regime behaved like bandits.
She said his headless corpse was found by the side of the road, surrounded by hungry dogs. He had recently married and was soon to be a father.
Sister Agnes-Mariam de la Croix said: ‘His only crime was his brother criticised the rebels, accused them of acting like bandits, which is what they are.’
There have been a growing number of accounts of atrocities carried out by rogue elements of the Syrian Free Army, which opposes dictator Bashar al-Assad and is recognised by Britain and the West as the legitimate leadership.
Sister Agnes-Miriam, mother superior of the Monastery of St James the Mutilated, has condemned Britain and the west for supporting the rebels despite growing evidence of human rights abuses. Murder, kidnapping, rape and robbery are becoming commonplace, she says.
‘The free and democratic world is supporting extremists,’ Sister Agnes-Miriam said from her sanctuary in Lebanon. ‘They want to impose Sharia Law and create an Islamic state in Syria.’
The 60-year-old Carmelite nun claims the west has turned a blind eye to growing evidence of a ‘fifth column’ of fanatics within the rag-tag ranks that make up the Free Syrian Army that they back to oust Assad.
One of the most effective fighting forces is the Jabat Al-Nusra, which has an ideology similar to Al Qaeda.
‘The uprising has been hijacked by Islamist mercenaries who are more interested in fighting a holy war than in changing the government,’ she said.
‘It has turned into a sectarian conflict. One in which Christians are paying a high price.’
The rebel attacked the northern town of Ras Al-Ayn, on the Turkish border, last month. The fighters entered the Christian quarter, ordering civilians to leave and taking their homes.
‘More than 200 families were driven out in the night,’ Sister Agnes-Miriam says. ‘People are afraid. Everywhere the deaths squads stop civilians, abduct them and ask for ransom, sometimes they kill them.’
Come on now. Are you seriously gonna take the word of a Christian speaking against freedom fighters?
Christians mostly support Assad because under his govt., they had a certain amount of freedom and security they do not enjoy now. So of course they’ll say awful things about those brave freedom fellows tearing apart their country. Anyway, who cares? You know, many of those Christians are quite friendly with the Jews. Hmmm. Can’t trust those Christians.
Can we all say ‘I told you so’ NOW?
Gee, anybody in the current gang of idiots in D.C. picking up on this? I mean after Iran, Iraq, Afganistan, Egypt & Libya this might be what’s referred to as a “clue”.
Maybe someone should post a video decrying Islamic extremists.
