Ethnic Cleansing of Syrian Christians

(Front Page Magazine) Frank Crimi - Syria's Orthodox Christian Church reports "ongoing ethnic cleansing of Christians" by al-Qaeda-linked Islamist militant groups in the Syrian city of Homs. The Vatican news agency Fides says Brigade Faruq, which has links with al-Qaeda in Iraq and Islamist mercenaries from Libya, has expelled 90% of Christians living in Homs, nearly 50,000 people. Reportedly, the armed Islamists went door to door in the Christian neighborhoods, informing homeowners that if they did not leave immediately they would be shot. Barnabas Aid, a relief agency assisting Syrian Christians, reported that in February armed Islamists murdered more than 200 Christians, "including entire families with young children."
