The U.S.-backed Free Syrian Army â€” those are the “moderates,” you know. How moderate? This moderate: in July 2013, Free Syrian Army fightersÂ entered the Christian village of Oum SharshouhÂ and began burning down houses and terrorizing the population, forcing 250 Christian families to flee the area.Â Worthy News reportedÂ that just two days later, Free Syrian Army rebels “targeted the residents of al-Duwayr/Douar, a Christian village close to the city of Homs and near Syria’s border with Lebanon….Around 350 armed militants forcefully entered the homes of Christian families who were all rounded-up in the main square of the village and then summarily executed.” And in September 2013, a day after Secretary of State John Kerry praised the Free Syrian Army as “a real moderate opposition,” theÂ FSA took to the InternetÂ to post videos of its attack on the ancient Syrian Christian city of Maaloula, one of the few places where Aramaic, the language of Jesus, is still spoken.
This is just the faction Obama is backing. This is America’s shame.
