#MyJihad in Syria: Jihadist rebels abduct two priests, Christians fear they have been killed
Will the Islamophobia never end?

"After Muslim rebels seize two priests in Aleppo, there are fears for their life," from Asia News, February 12 (thanks to C. Cantoni):

Aleppo (AsiaNews)- A group of rebels close to Muslim extremists on Sunday abducted an Armenian Catholic priest, Fr Michael, as well as a yet unknown Orthodox clergyman. Both were working in Aleppo. Sources, anonymous for security reasons, told AsiaNews that the city's Christian community is very concerned about the attack. "Extremist violence is getting worse day by day. Muslim militias are killing anyone suspected of ties with the regime, including women and children. People in the neighbourhoods are comparing these days to the Ottoman conquest five centuries ago."
For several weeks, residents had complained about the presence of al-Nusra Front forces, Islamic extremists who want to turn Syria into an Islamic state, feared even by the rebel Free Syrian Army.

On 6 February, Front troops stormed the Christian neighbourhood of Jdeideh where extremists had already destroyed the city's main Evangelical church in November.

Al-Nusra forces include many foreigners, including Muslims from Indonesia and the Philippines, as evinced by a statement posted online by the leader of Abu Sayyaf, an extremist Muslim group with ties to al-Qaeda operating in the Philippines. In it, Muslims are urged to go to Syria and sacrifice their lives for Islam.

"These fighters live for killing and violence. They act without pity and make distinctions among people," sources said. "When they kill, they turn to God as if they were making a sacrifice."...

This is the article I was referring to. Maybe not so reputable, but anything coming out of the UK is suspect, considering the ever shifting bias against Israel. Notice the Goosy-Dynamite is taking our resident spammer to task and it's Friday. Think she has the day off, too? He is an irritant with that copy and paste. Reminds me of Gaye.

If he reminds you of Grey I really am beginning to worry about you. No comparison.

I did some reading last night after you tried to link the two unrelated events. I say unrelated because the sources I read attribute the Iranian's death to the Syrian rebels while adding that Israel is thought by Iran to be behind it. My problem with that is that there isn't much that Iran doesn't blame on Israel. Also, the word "allegedly" doesn't appear to be available to Arabic or Farsi speakers. Without any link or proof, Arabs and Persians automatically blame Israel for anything bad that happens to them. No matter the source, these accusations are baseless in the absence of photographic evidence proving their claims...just a bunch of hot air.

No need to worry about me. Like Gaye, it's much easier to cut and paste than actually say something yourself. And, like Gaye, there is no embarrassment for being repeatedly you're such a dickhead. I, for one, get enough crap e-mails at home.

I'm aware of the blame game from Iran, but the article outlined many things I never heard about. Like the Munich terrorists and how long they stayed with it. How they got started. Eichmann's capture. I hope they did have something to do with it. Go Mossad.

Actually, he's just old enough to make it up as he goes. Not only that, but I suspect he can insult Arabs in many (if not any) languages. It's a skill.

Know how you can tell the Arabs are getting bored?

Think of all the things they could have Photoshoped into Bibi's hand. This must mean that in Arab terms, it's a slow news day.

If the Arabs are bored, what about the EU?

I clicked on the link and read the article before seeing your tag line. The whole time I was reading I thought to myself..."Hunger striking is a voluntary endeavor, if you don't want your condition to deteriorate, EAT!"

What you said makes more sense
