syriaDAMASCUS, SYRIA (Worthy News)– Christians are being targeted by Muslim rebels according to the Vatican and other sources amongst besieged Syrian Christian communities.

According to reports by the Vatican's Fides News Agency, the US-backed Syrian Army are sacking churches and issuing threats that all Christians will be cleansed from rebel-held territory.

"The picture for us is utter desolation," said Bishop Philip Tournyol Clos, a greek-Catholic Melkite Archimandrite. "The church of Mar Elian is half destroyed and that of Our Lady of Peace is still occupied by the rebels. Christian homes are severely damaged due to the fighting and completely emptied of their inhabitants, who fled without taking anything."

Asked whether it was the Free Syrian Army that was telling Christians to get out, Agnes Miriam, Mother Superior of the Monastery of St. James at Qara in the Diocese of Homs, said "yes … it was commander on the ground, Abdel Salam Harba, who decided that there was to be no more negotiations with Christians."

She said Christians refused to back the rebels, so the rebels used them as human shields.

    How are the rebels linked to the U.S.?

    We pretty much screwed over our own Jewish GI's who were captured and murdered by the Nazis. And screwed over Jews in general after WWII. Read "Justice Not Vengeance" by Simon Weisenthal Sickening how we let these murderers go back to their happy lives. Norway and Sweden and those other European countries were more than culpable. Vienna… …not to mention the Arabs who plotted with Hitler to exterminate the Jews i.e. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Who got off scott free.

    Larry, read this. As a Norwegian I know tis. Sweden was neutral during WWII, Norway was occupied by Wehmacht. That was Germanys army.

    Paragraph 2 of this article makes a serious error in not distinguishing between the official Syrian Army, and the "Free Syrian Army," which is committing these crimes.

    If the U.S. were linked to either side in Syria, it would be the wrong side. That seems to be the normal with U.S. foreign policy: backing the wrong people. Obama isn't any different no matter what they claim.

    SAdly, it is the extremists on both sides who are getting all the publicity and support. Those working for peace seldom get mentioned.
