    And of providing the rebels with advanced weapons perhaps?

    “Much of the Western media has remained strangely silent about the ongoing persecution Christians have suffered during the war”

    That is because the media hates Christians as much as Al-Qaeda does.

      I wouldn’t go that far. But let’s be absolutely clear: Western secular elites (who dominate the media) detest Christianity and Christians as a whole. They probably don’t want the Suriani Christians or the Armenians to be chased from their homes, but they aren’t going to lose sleep over it, they aren’t going to address the threat in their coverage, and they are barely, if at all, going to cover the tragic results. The sad targeting, persecution and destruction of Christian communities in Iraq after the fall of Saddam was barely covered, and there the media had the incentive of embarrassing a President they viscerally hated.

      The bias is deeply entrenched in the State Department as well. The Office for International Religious Freedom has been neglected by Obama and sidelined within State.
