A masked terrorist shot killed a widely-known Dutch priest and another priest in the city of Homs Monday, another sign of what the awaits the Christian minority whenever the civil war ends.

Christians have tried to stay neutral in the war but have been victimized by all sides – Syrian President Bassar al-Assad, an Alawite, and Muslim rebels along with Al Qaeda Sunni Muslims.

No one has claimed responsibility for the murder of the priests, one of whom was 72-year-old Father Francis Van Der Lugt, who was killed in a monastery in an area controlled by rebels.

    Cold blooded murder of Christian clergy – MUSLIM HATRED FOR OTHER RELIGIONS IS EVIL and the world needs to stop trivializing it!

  2. I wonder if there will be any signs of outrage from the side of Holland about this! Christians are also persecuted there and the world over, maybe more than Jews these days!

  3. Valerie Kerstetter Moore says:

    Christians in the Middle East are the forgotten ones.
