Sunspots? This CBS report notes forthrightly that the Syrian “rebels” are persecuting the Christians there.
One thing, however — a mainstream media report, even a good one, wouldn’t be complete without at least one howling inaccuracy. Gregory III is not the “Syrian Patriarch.” There is no “Syrian Patriarch.” Gregory III is the Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria and Jerusalem. He resides in Damascus.
