Why are Christians being targeted by Western backed terrorists in Syria? Mark Field, a conservative member of the British Parliament, wrote that “rent-a-job jihadis are tormenting a benighted Christian minority in Bashar al-Assad’s Syria. He went on to write:
“…for the two million plus Syrian followers of Christ, whose lineage goes back 2000 years to St Paul’s proselytising in the first century AD, these are especially desperate times. Ethnic cleansing is an ugly phrase, but that’s just what is going on right now for Christians in Syria. The unspeakable truth now is that the sizeable Christian communities in war-torn Syria are at greater threat of ethnic cleansing from their ancestral homes than has been the case for generations — often at the hands of the self-styled freedom fighters so feted by the Western press.”

Daniel McAdams wrote about this in an LRC blog this morning, and these brutal activities against Christians in that region are evidence that the West is complicit in this slaughter. As McAdams said this morning, when the U.S. invaded Iraq, 300,000 Christians were forced to flee to Syria, this after Iraq was supposedly “liberated” by the “freedom loving” United States military forces.
As is normally the case, the U.S. government and its military are willing to “sacrifice” the lives of any that will help them advance their agenda. The same is happening in the Syria-Turkey border towns now, as these same western backed rebel forces, jihadis, are terrorizing Syrians there, thus allowing Turkish forces to invade Syria. This directly involves NATO, this desired by the United States.
As far as the U.S. government is concerned, lives are secondary to its planned agenda of imperialism!
