AP reports:

A nun and activists say rebel fighters have attacked a regime-held, predominantly Christian village, commandeering a mountaintop hotel and shelling the ancient community from there.

The nun, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals, says the assault began around dawn Wednesday with a suicide bombing at a regime checkpoint outside the village of Maaloula.

She says she’s heard firefights and regime airstrikes. The nun, speaking by phone from a convent in Maaloula, says regime troops are deployed at the village’s entrance, while rebels have commandeered the Safir hotel overlooking Maaloula and surrounding caves.

The attack has been independently confirmed. No word on whether it was carried out by the rebellion’s bad Islamists or its worse Islamists.

How can any Christian in America, of ANY party, support this insanity? Obama's "foreign policy" is simply SUPPORT THE MOOSLIM BRUTHAHOOD wherever, whenever....Christisans are being slaughtered in Africa and throughout the Middle East by mooslim barbarians, and we SUPPORT AND DEFEND TERRORISTS. I suppose Obama has to stick up for his brother, malik, who is the EXECUTIVE SECRETARY of the IDO - INTERNATIONAL DA'WA ORGANIZATION which our State Dept has listed as a TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. WAKE UP AMERICA!
