Of course the various Al Qaedas, which can’t even get along with each other, did their part too. But much of the credit goes to our very moderate and friendly FSA allies and their Muslim Brotherhood bosses and their Qatari backers.
Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch Gregorios III Laham told the BBC that more than 450,000 Christians out of a total population of 1.75 million had been displaced or left the country.
That’s about a quarter of the population. If we were talking about Muslims, the media would be running new stories every day. But since we’re talking about Christians, no one in the media seems to particularly care.
Even the BBC, whose story this is, lets the figure drop and then moves on.
