Syria Islamist rebels seize town

An al Qaeda-linked rebel group has wrested control of the historic Christian town of Maaloula from regime forces, opposition groups said Sunday.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the hardline Islamist rebels of the al-Nusra Front seized control Saturday night.
Videos posted on YouTube in recent days showed fighting between rebels and government forces in the tiny sleepy town, an hour's drive from the capital Damascus.

    This isnt the first time Christians have been attacked by Al Q. Hundreds of thousands of Christians are unfarely tried found guilty and many given life sentences forcing them to live in boxes... Most of them being women and children. Theyre men who think they are god.

      With all due respect, Hope, Al Qaeda is a part of the rebels, and what do you think will happen to Christians if they do manage to overthrow Assad? He is the one who protected Christians in Syria. I believe I addressed this on the first page.
