One of the worst Christian massacres—complete with mass graves, tortured-to-death women and children, and destroyed churches—recently took place in Syria, at the hands of the U.S.-supported jihadi “rebels”; and the U.S. government and its “mainstream media” mouthpiece are, as usual, silent (that is, when not actively trying to minimize matters).
The massacre took place in Sadad, an ancient Syriac Orthodox Christian habitation, so old as to be mentioned in the Old Testament. Most of the region’s inhabitants are poor, as Sadad is situated in the remote desert between Homs and Damascus (desert regions, till now, apparently the only places Syria’s Christians could feel secure; 600 Christian families had earlier fled there for sanctuary from the jihad, only to be followed by it).
ATTENTION !!! MUSLIMS MASSACRED!!! DAILY SINCE 2001

It is worth pointing out that while you said it was the FSA, the article you linked said it was Jihadi Rebels.
Which is it? Big difference and the it is the reason why the West has been caught between a rock and a hard place with the rebels.
Painting them all as a homogeneous, single group is misleading and totally incorrect on your part. There are at least a dozen different rebel groups, all with their own commands and ideology's.

The article itself mentions Jihadi's, not the FSA and also references an attack on the town of Sadad, which was recently overrun by Islamist rebels loyal to ISIS, that is how we know it wasn't the FSA, but actually the hardcore Jihadists.
ETA: Never mind, I visited the link and it leads to a pro-Christian website. Christians are persecuted!? Wow, well let me finally welcome them to the real world, where all kinds of people from different religions are persecuted every day.
As dianec has pointed out, many of the posts so far have been attempts at distraction, intentional or not. Consider phrasing it this way:
"Middle-East Muslims appear to have no difficulty with killing their neighbors who happen to be Christian. As they have no scruples against killing Christians that they know and live with, there is no reason to believe they will spare Christians outside of their countries. This, in fact, is happening as armed Islamic groups move into African countries. The attacks on Christians are spreading into Europe. Most of the terrorist caused deaths in the world are caused by Islamic terrorists. We have, so far, refused to seriously address this problem."
Shall we start a discussion of that?
