I wrote a diary recently about how 50,000 Christians have fled Syria, because Al Qaeda "rebels" are ethnically cleansing Syria and persecuting Christians. Almost a million Christians have fled Iraq.
A brave Syrian-American woman passionately told McCain at a Town Meeting about her 18 year old Christian cousin having been killed by Al Qaeda affiliated so-called "rebels" in Syria, who are not Syrian: they are coming from all over the world to fight. There are more options than a military strike on Syria: the good option is diplomacy and negotiation, not bombs. We cannot afford to shed more Syrian blood. We cannot afford to turn Syria into Iraq or Afghanistan. Listen to the majority of the American people who do not want you to go there. Enough is enough. We do not want another war in the Middle East. We don't want Al Qaeda to take over. I am not a fan of Assad, but at least he has a secular government going on over there. It is secular, Senator McCain, we Christians are a minority over there. You treat the Syrian Christians as collateral damage. I beg you, my family is there, there are so many good Syrians, the majority of Syrians want to save their country.
The story that government stenographers at the MSM feeds us misleads us to believe that the war in Syria is a "civil" war, but "rebels" are invading Syria from other countries, fighting for jihad and the destruction of Syria, not its salvation. The rebels are destroying and depopulating Syria. 2,000,000 Syrians are now refugees from the strife caused in large part by these ruthless mercenaries.
McCain attacked her, as he is wont to do, as being an Assad proponent (where have I heard that ugly retort before?) and called Assad a butcher, but McCain is ignoring the inconvenient truth that he himself met with "rebels" in Syria, 1 of whom was identified as being involved in a kidnapping of 11 Lebanese pilgrims, who he calls brave heroes. Al Qaeda "rebels" literally do butcher Syrians and have the tiresome habit of recording themselves in the act of savagely cutting off people's heads and ripping the heart out of a Syrian soldier for a quick bite.
