aims that a Catholic priest has been beheaded by jihadist rebels in Syria are drawing new attention to the plight of Syrian Christians, caught in the middle of a brutal struggle and said by campaigners to face an existential threat.

Last week the Vatican reported that a Catholic priest, Francois Murad, had been killed by militants who attacked a monastery in northern Syria on Sunday, June 23.

Jabhat al-Nusrah is an al-Qaeda front group viewed by regional experts as one of the most effective among the rebel formations fighting to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.

[snip]

The Obama administration, which last December blacklisted al-Nusrah as a foreign terrorist organization, has agreed to supply weapons to anti-Assad rebels, stressing the U.S. will only support “moderates” in the opposition ranks.

Western church leaders concerned about Syrian Christians are among those who have urged the U.S. and European governments (not to add more arms) to the conflict.

Hmm... sounds more like the lead from behind president that has made the decision to arms AQM, al Nusra. Just how long has that 3:00AM phone call been ringing. Time to get off the pot. I say at this point no arms to AQM, Jihadists, or al Nusra.
