The war in Syria has become an ongoing venture into death and destruction. The latest episode occurred in the city of Homs when Syrian armed forces along with local militia went on a rampage against civilians. They stormed Basatin al-Hasawiya, an impoverished district on the outside of town and during the ensuing action killed an estimated 106 people including women and children. The victims were shot, stabbed and possibly burned to death. Assad forces will probably claim there were insurgents who had to be wiped out.
The real tragedy of these massacres is the silence from Muslim groups. Fellow members of their faith are being slaughtered but there are no mass demonstrations in Muslim nations. However, if someone prints a cartoon, they emerge by the thousands. Let’s defend ALL Muslims against such horrible deaths.
