The churches of Yabrud, Syria in ruins

This is clearly a case of Muslim persecution of Christians, and is clearly religiously motivated, despite what religious and secular authorities say. 

Pravmir — March 31, 2014

Although the gunmen are gone, their sectarian fingerprint on Yabrud remains. All you have to do is visit St. Mary’s Greek Catholic Church to see the destruction. Icons have had their faces scratched out, church pews have been broken, statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ have been smashed, and the church Bibles have been burned.

[Yabrud is approximatekly 50 miles north of Damascus.]

Many more photos at Pravmir. This is what our Christian brothers and sisters in the Muslim world face every day. Prayers up!
