Syrian Rebels Find There is Compulsion in Religion

Washington Times:

Al Qaeda-linked Syrian rebels who seized the ancient regime-held Christian town of Maalula last week forced at least one person to convert to Islam at gunpoint and executed another one after he refused, residents said Tuesday, Agence France-Presse reported.

“They arrived in our town at dawn on Wednesday and shouted ‘We are from the Al-Nusra Front and have come to make lives miserable for the Crusaders,’” an Islamist term for Christians, a woman, who identified herself as Marie, told AFP in Damascus.

Then al-Nusra insulted the Prophet Isa AKA Jesus.
AFP reported that the most tragic story was that of Rasha, whose fiance Atef was brutally murdered by the jihadists.

“I rang his mobile phone and one of them answered,” she said.

“Good morning, Rash rush,” the voice said, using her nickname. “We are from the Free Syrian Army. Do you know your fiance was a member of the shabiha (pro-regime militia) who was carrying weapons, and we have slit his throat.”
The man told Rasha her fiance had been given the choice to convert to Islam or die.

“Jesus didn’t come to save him,” he taunted.

Oh, I'm sure Atef will find grace, where the al-Nusra murderers will not.

Allah doesn't take kindly to murderers, or those who try and place themselves in the his judge's seat.
