Christians in Syria say they are coming under increasing pressure to choose sides in the 18-month-old civil war that has engulfed their country, as Syria's foreign minister, in a speech Monday, accused some members of the U.N. Security Council of supporting "terrorism."
"We can hear bombing and gunfire, but we don't know who is shooting," Archbishop Nassar said. "[The regime] thinks if all minorities get together, they can stop the majority. But some Christians think [the opposition is] the democratic way. We have to follow the majority."
"[Both sides] want us in this war," said Maronite Archbishop Samir Nassar, whose congregation in the Christian quarter of the capital, Damascus, said it can't trust the government or the rebels.
