I don't rule out that maybe you know the future much better than the past. Yet, if the fate of the Iraqi Christians may help us forecast the future, then it will be definitely different from what you optimistically announce here. It is estimated that since the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq about half of the country's 1,4 mln Christians had to flee the country, driven out by nearly a decade of recurrent church bombings, fires, kidnappings and sectarian murders. It seems therefore that both the sunnis and shia's have ample spare time between bombing their own Islamic heretics' mosques and markets to target the common infidel nasara(Christian) enemy and not even the "invincible" US army could prevent them from doing so.

Now in Syria there are 2 mln Christians , c. 10% of the population. Assad's regime, which the US regime wants so frantically to topple cost what it may to gratify its imperialist greed and interests, has left them relatively undisturbed and they do support him for that. Assad didn't kill Christians before and nothing suggests it will do it afterwards whereas the "friendly" jihadists on the US/Saudi/Qatari/Turkish payroll are quite unequivocal on what they are after - "After the regime is toppled this will be the first stone in building the Islamic Caliphate and Syria must adopt Islamic law" , "Our big hope is to form a Syrian-Iraqi Islamic state for all Muslims, and then announce our war against Iran and Israel, and free Palestine".

A look at the events affecting Christians in Syria is quite sobering indeed, at least for me. The Wall Street Journal writes :

" A recent wave of kidnappings, intimidation and revenge killings in the town of Qusayr, in an area of Syria where religious groups have lived side by side for centuries, provides a cautionary example of what may lie ahead for other heavily Christian areas particularly in urban centers...

On Saturday Brig. Gen. Nabil Zougheib, a Christian missiles expert, was assassinated along with his wife and son at their home in a Damascus Christian neighborhood... Many Christians believe they are being targeted for being mostly with the regime.Qusayr's conflict was sparked when some local Christians acted as informants to Mr. Assad's security apparatus, said several Sunni Muslims from the area. In the months since, several men from a prominent Christian family have been shot dead, more than a dozen residents have gone unaccounted for and the majority of Christians have fled town, said residents on both sides of the conflict....

Several times during the height of the crisis, in February, loudspeakers from mosques in the town told Christians they should leave the town ...

The Christian men in Lebanon believe that Christians will have no place in Syria if Mr. Assad leaves power—saying that the recent animosity has uncovered the true feelings their former neighbors had kept hidden for years. "We ate from the same plate," said one of the displaced Christians... "And then they stabbed us in the back." "

I am afraid that these are the signs of the times and they forebode the inevitable extinction of Syria's Christianity if the US-inspired jihad is not smashed by the Syrian Army.
