Syria and Terrorists

The terrorist group Jabhat al-Nusra does not differ ideologically from other Syrian Salafi Islamist groups like Ahrar al-Sham and Liwa al-Tawhid. In the end what they want is to establish an Islamic State. Since November 2011 the group has claimed responsibility for “nearly 600 terrorist attacks, killing and wounding hundreds of Syrians

Like Jabhat al-Nusra, a number of other Islamist groups also want to install an Islamic state in Syria, while even secular rebel units increasingly speak in ugly sectarian terms that demonize minorities, particularly members of Assad’s Alawite sect and the Christian minorities.

I am not with the regime but I am against their enemies because they are worse than then them! I pray for the safety of all innocent lives in Syria, especially the Christian minorities that are now being targeted by these radical Islamist groups.
