"They beheaded him, cut him into pieces and fed him to the dogs," said Agnes-Mariam de la Croix, mother superior of the Monastery of St James the Mutilated between Damascus and Homs.
How about this little gem from the "freedom fighters" that we are supporting at the behest of Israel:
Militants can marry Syrian women: Wahhabi cleric in Saudi Arabia
