Christians Flee from Radical Rebels in Syria – SPIEGEL ONLINE

Christians Flee from Radical Rebels in Syria – SPIEGEL ONLINE.

Thousands of Syrians are fleeing into neighboring Lebanon — not entirely due to fear of the Assad regime. The country’s minority Christian population is suffering under attacks waged by rebel troops. In the Beqaa Valley in eastern Lebanon, Christian families are finding temporary refuge, but they are still terrified.

Syria repeats the scenario in Iraq. Christian communities are the great losers in this conflict. And the Christians in the world are doing almost nothing to help.
