The Bashir al Assad approach of mass amnesty is not working. The approach of Maher al Assad with the Syrian Fourth Army can be effective. 120 Syrian government forces were killed 12 miles from the Turkish border, the BBC has reported. The Sunni Syrian chant is “Christians to Beirut, Alawites to the coffin.” The Christians either have to turn the other cheek and leave or fight like Judas Maccabbees. The driving out of the Christian population of the Middle East should not be allowed to happen. The NYT Anthony Shadid reports Alawite Ishtabraq have struck back at Jisr al Shughour.
American media is only about Israel and cares little about Middle East Christians.
