Early Wednesday, Al Qaeda Syrian rebels attacked a Christian village in a densely populated area in west Syria. The conflict between Al Qaeda rebels and Christians in Syria is likely to intensify. And this is who the U.S. is supporting in the Syrian conflict?

It's nonsensical. Even to the most casual observer, one not versed in complicated international politics, the prospect of military strikes in Syria is illogical and completely flawed. It benefits no one, will likely cause extreme harm to Israel, and worst of all, will empower our most dreaded enemy Al-Qaeda. Or are they still our enemy?

Mideast Syria Minority FearsThe country's top leaders have flip flopped, deciding going to "war" is the best option. The very same morons who vehemently opposed a war in Iraq are hell bent on striking Syria in an effort to oust the Assad regime. Who wins? No one wins, except Al-Qaeda.

This is the same Al-Qaeda that attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. The fact that Osama bin Laden is dead matters very little since the objectives of the Islamic terrorist organization is the same. Nothing has changed.

Early Wednesday Al Qaeda Syrian rebels waged an assault on a Christian village, as rebels took control of a mountaintop hotel in the village of Maaloula and attacked the Christian community below. One brave nun spoke on the phone about the attack, on the condition of anonymity for fear of repercussions.

This is who the U.S. is supporting in this conflict. How we could choose one side over another is absurd, given both sides are Islamic and their goals are means to the same end. Wipe Israel off the map, kill the Christians. Kill all the infidels.

But it is Christians in this region who will suffer the most at this present time. If a proxy war breaks out, Israel will be forced to defend herself. The Al Qaeda rebels already control most of the north, east, and southern part of Syria, but the Assad regime is hanging on to the west. And this is where the majority of Christians reside.

The assault Wednesday on the village of Maaloula, a predominately Christian area, was carried out by Al-Qaeda inked Jabhat al-Nusra group, a rebel force. And in the early morning hours, a suicide bomber blew himself up at a checkpoint at the village entrance.images12

The suicide attack was followed by fighting between the rebels and regime forces, the Observatory and a nun in the village said. Eventually, the rebels seized the checkpoint, disabled two tanks and an armored personnel carrier and killed eight regime soldiers in fighting, the British-based group said. Some 80 people from the village took refuge in the convent, which houses 13 nuns and 27 orphans, she said. "It's a war. It has been going from 6 a.m. in the morning"

Maaloula is a mountain village northeast of Damascus and is home to some 2,000 residents. The Al Qaeda Syrian rebels are waging war against them, and this could be just the beginning. This could and very likely will lead to an all out war against all Christians in Syria, waged by none other than the rebels the U.S. is backing. This is a holy war, this is jihad.

Already, well over a thousand Christians have been killed in Syria since the beginning of the civil war in 2011. And when the regime falls, the numbers will rise much higher. There will be no protection for Christians at all with the fall of Assad. This is ethnic cleansing on the part of Al-Qaeda rebels. And this is who the U.S. is supporting in this conflict.

What is happening now defies logic. It's barbaric, foolish, and goes against everything that United States is supposed to stand for. We've turned, and now there is no going back.
