The U.S. Christians Who Fear Assad’s Fall

Some religious groups fear regime change in Syria will lead to persecution of Christians in the war-torn state.

In this June 5, 2013 photo released, by the Syrian official news agency SANA, a damaged church is seen in Qusair town, Syria. Syrian troops and their Lebanese Hezbollah allies captured a strategic border town Wednesday after a grueling three-week battle, dealing a severe blow to rebels and opening the door for President Bashar Assad's regime to seize back the country's central heartland. The regime triumph in Qusair, which Assad's forces had bombarded for months without success, demonstrates the potentially game-changing role of Hezbollah in Syria's civil war.
