A Maaloula resident said the rebels, many of them sporting beards and shouting God is great, attacked Christian homes and churches shortly after moving into the village overnight.

"They shot and killed people. I heard gunshots and then I saw three bodies lying in the middle of a street in the old quarters of the village," said the resident, reached by telephone from neighboring Jordan. "So many people fled the village for safety."

Now, Maaloula "is a ghost town.

Where is President Obama to see what befallen on us?" asked the man.

Another resident who fled the village of 3,000 inhabitants earlier in the day said in a telephone interview that Assad's forces deployed on the outskirts of the village, while gunmen inside refused to allow anybody in.

He said the gunmen declined to allow fleeing people to take five dead bodies out of the village with them.

He said one of the churches, called Demyanos, had been torched and that gunmen stormed into two other churches and robbed them.

Most of the gunmen are foreigners, he said, adding that he heard different dialects, mainly of Tunisians, Libyans, Moroccans and Chechens.

Another resident, a Christian man, said he saw militants forcing some Christian residents to convert to Islam. "I saw the militants grabbing five villagers Wednesday and threatening them (saying):'Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded,'" he said.

The two other residents said they heard about the conversions, but did not see them. All three spoke on condition of anonymity out of fears of retaliation. A Christian woman who spoke to the AP on Thursday also said there were reports that militants threatened villagers with death if they did not convert.

Sadaam, Arafat, Murbarek and Assad were all very good to and for their Christian communities.

Barry doesn't care because he is a moslem.

Since we seem to be in 100% agreement, I have to wonder why you felt the need to troll me with several moronic comments fake E Bob.

Yet another reason to hang Obama from the nearest stout beam.

I am not a fan of Assad but he is far better than the al-queer-da man love thursday crowd Barry fistie Hussein Obama belongs to.

I hope to God we don't go in Syria.
Another can of worms will be opened and this time with bigger backlashes to America!

Not only will Syria be involved, but the other Muslim countries who hate us will be involved.

Odd how often lately Obama's efforts seem to benefit radical Islam.

Some folks might think it was on purpose.

But...but...Black Racist from Brooklyn insists that the revolutions in the Middle East are all the result of economic conditions and that Islam and Lord Barry play no role at all...
