"Christians and Muslims had always lived in an atmosphere of mutual trust; the attack on Maaloula has created a lot of distress." Islamists have invaded homes and continue to threaten the village, site of ongoing clashes between rebels and the army. The families who fled to Damascus and Beirut tell their story. The goal is to drive out Christians in order to eliminate Christianity.
Beirut (AsiaNews) - According to families who fled Maaloula (Syria), some of their Muslim neighbours were involved in the attack that devastated their village located about fifty kilometres from Damascus, dispersing its residents.
Perceived as a betrayal of the long-lasting trust that existed between Christians and Muslims in Maaloula, where Muslims make up about 30 per cent of the village population.
The presence of young Muslim fighters from the village among Syrian rebels appalled the Christian population. However, it is a sign of the growing ambiguity of Syria's armed rebellion.
These facts give that battles that occurred in Maaloula from 3 to 7 September another perspective. Speaking for the first time anonymously, survivors from Maaloula described how elements from the Syrian Liberation Army and the al-Nusra Front coordinated their attack in an attempt to take control of the town.
The explosion of a car driven by a suicide bomber at an army checkpoint at the village entrance was the signal for the attack. Almost immediately, armed rebel groups sprung out from within Maaloula, smashing doors to gain entrance into Christian homes.

No matter the relationship, you can’t trust a muslim.
Muslim Sleeper cells are everywhere amongst us.
It’s one giant sleeper cell.
You also couldn’t buy a smile from a muslim for a thousand bucks. They are some miserable people.
No one should be surprised by this.
Your neighborhood Muslims will happily cut off your head when it comes to it too
A smile from a Muslim is not necessarily a good thing. It could mean “I’m getting ready to blow you up.”.
This says it all and brings into stark reality what obama's REAL goal is, and has been, since he entered politics. It isn't just about the destruction of the United States, it's about the elimination of Judaism and Christianity throughout the world. I repeat, SINCE HE ENTERED POLITICS.
Go back and look at where he started in Chicago. jeremiah wright, a muslim pretending yo be a Christian teaching a muslim how to masquarade himself as a Christian. Look at his record after he was elected. His votes on abortion that condoned the murders of born alive aborted children. The man is an afront to G-d and I hope the price he pays will last for eternity.
This is a Threat Matrix list documenting threats within and without. Anyone wanting on or off please advise.
They all must be stopped! People need to get their minds right. This battle will not be won by Marquis of Queensbury rules, as the enemies of America and civilization fight by the credo “by any means necessary”! They are in need of a Biblical smiting!
Thanks for the ping; post...
Thanks to Robert Spencer and the outstanding posters at jihadwatch.
His goal is the destruction of all of Western Civilization (though there is much overlap between "Judaism and Christianity" and "Western Civilization"), leaving most of us dead and the rest of us in chains.
This guy is the front-man for a group of barbarians the likes of which the world has never seen.
Very Well Said Mesta, VERY well said.
That is a Keeper.
