Instead of saving these Christians, the delusional West is focusing on arming, funding and saving the Muslim terrorists. When Syria’s President Assad fights the terrorist invaders trying to occupy his country, he is sanctioned, isolated and called a dictator. Unreal.

A distraught mother has relived the horrors of the brutal rule of ISIS and revealed how the extremist group would ‘knead children to death in bakery machines’.
Alice Assaf said her son was killed ‘because he was called George’ and refused to identify himself by a Muslim name.
Ms Assaf claims ISIS slaughtered Christians in Syria, kneading children to death in bread machines and ‘baking men in ovens’.
She said the terror group targeted her home town in Syria some two years ago, unleashing a horrifying reign of terror as they took hold of the suburb’s population, murdering both adults and children.

She also recounted her son’s last words: ‘I don’t want to hide myself. You [Alice] are the one who taught me to follow what Christ said, ‘whoever denies me before men, I will also deny them before Heaven.’
Ms Assaf added: ‘They took him to a backyard to shoot and kill him. They killed him because his name was ‘George’.
While Ms Assaf succeeded in fleeing from the region, her son was buried in a mass grave and she did not know the whereabouts of his body until now.
And while some towns have been liberated from the extremist group, residents continue to live in fear.

Today, improvised land mines planted by the Islamic State group killed and wounded hundreds of civilians, including dozens of children, in a town recently freed of the militants in northern Syria.
A leading human rights group said civilians returning to the town of Manbij since it was liberated from the extremists in August have reported finding explosive devices placed in doorways and windows, under mattresses and piles of shoes, in refrigerators and bags of clothes and in television sets.
The Human Rights Watch revealed the horrors in a report based on a five-day investigation in the town.
‘ISIS mined virtually everything including, quite literally, the kitchen sink before they left,’ said Ole Solvang, deputy emergencies director at Human Rights Watch (HRW).
He said the number of victims is likely to increase as more people return to their homes.

ISIS’ reign of terror has seen the group commit some of the most barbaric atrocities.
Today the group have suffocated hundreds of people trying to flee Mosul by setting fire to a sulphur plant sending poisonous gas across the city.
Hospitals in Mosul were overwhelmed with patients including children and pregnant women who had inhaled the gas causing breathing problems and choking.
Earlier this week, the terrorists used a bulldozer to dump the corpses in a mass grave at the city’s abandoned College of Agriculture.
All 284 victims, including children, were said to have been shot.
Some of the 550 families taken hostage by Islamic State were able to return home while others will continue to be used as human shields by retreating jihadis.

The Islamic State group has typically laid out hundreds of land mines and booby traps designed to kill civilians before retreating from towns and cities across areas in Iraq, including the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah, and also in the town of Kobani in Syria.
Manbij, near the Turkish border, was liberated by a US-backed coalition of Kurdish, Arab and other forces in mid-August.
The town had been under ISIS militants’ control since January 2014.
The report’s findings are a grim portent for Iraq’s IS-held city, Mosul, where a large-scale offensive is underway, posing a major threat to civilians there and other ISIS-held towns including al-Bab and Raqqa in Syria.
HRW said it collected the names of 69 civilians killed – including 19 children – by improvised mines in schools, homes and on roads in Manbij during its five-day investigation this month.
It said the victims were killed during and after the fighting for control of the town.
The total death toll is likely much higher, the New York-based watchdog said, because it was unable to collect information from all neighbourhoods and villages.
HRW said ISIS had also planted mines on roads, bridges, and in the fields, which wounded and killed civilians trying to flee from the militants during the fighting.
It also mined schools and hospitals, according to local residents and bomb disposal workers.
