Al-Qaeda linked terrorists in Syria have beheaded all 24 Syrian passengers traveling from Tartus to Ras al-Ain in northeast of Syria, among them a mother and a 40-day old infant.

Gunmen from the terrorist Islamic State of Iraq and Levant stopped the bus on the road in Talkalakh and killed everyone before setting the bus on fire.

According to media reports, the attack was carried out because the passengers who were from three different villages in Ras al-Ain, supported anti-terrorist Kurdish groups which were formed recently to defend Kurdish population against anti-Syria terrorists.

Bodies of the mother and her 40-day old infant were also seen among the dead, which were recognized by their relatives.

Syrian Kurdish leader Saleh Muslim warned on Friday that the Kurd minority is facing an ethnic cleansing by al-Qaeda terrorists.

While there is no end in sight to the bloody foreign-fueled conflict in Syria, another front has been formed between the Kurdish militia and extremist militants in Northern Syria.

Al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist groups operating in the country, including the al-Nusra Front, are trying to capture Kurdish territories and make them part of a state they want to create in the region.

Following deadly attacks on Kurdish regions in recent months, groups of Kurdish militia were formed to protect their people.

Anti-Syria armed groups continue to target civilians amid US threats against Syrian army and government which have made militants find it easier to widen their attacks.

Following worldwide criticism, US President Barack Obama delayed an imminent military strike against Syria on August 31, sending the matter to the Congress to get more support.

I have no idea why the rebels are still called rebels as they are actually mostly Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda.

The "rebels" have also been caught with sarin gas and there is other evidence to prove that they do have it.

PLEASE TRY TO ENLARGE THE PICTURE TO THIS ARTICLE; You will see one Islamist holding the head of the bus passenger he just chopped off. The other guy is standing near a body he dismembered.

Coming to a neighborhood near you.

When the goal of that group turned to eliminating certain civilians, the nature of the group changed from terrorist and racist to plain fascist.

These same Saudi-Muslim Brotherhood-backed 'rebels' - terrorists, are committing ethnic cleansing against all non-Muslims in the whole region. Where is Obama's outrage and criticism? The media? Such disgusting silence.

Thanks for posting

Well, Mohammed's hateful deity DID say 'kill them wherever you find them' and cut off their heads and even their finger tips. Nice. Truly a religion of peace and tolerance. Not. AND these are NOT 'radicals' derailing true Islam. This IS true Islam, as anyone who has studied it and read its unholy books, as I have. They're all online. Read them and be sickened. Sadly, most Muslims have never read their own books and want to believe Islam is really about peace and tolerance, but they support these murderers with their Zakat, the involuntary 'charitable' payments they much make each year, which Islamic law says cannot be given to any non-Muslims and part of which must be given to those waging jihad against the rest of us.

Where is the outrage? Indeed.

There is no reason to get involved in this brother hates brother atrocity,

Which murderers are we defending?

Let them fight it out.

This picture is sickening, but it is important for all to see what real Islam looks like. Sunnis and Shi'ites do not consider each other to be Muslims for a number of reasons, even though superficially Muslims will say they are all Muslims when they talk about Islam as the "fastest growing religion" and the global Ummah.

Syria is all about Sunnis trying to overthrow Shi'ite Syria.

Al-Qaeda is a Sunni terrorist group, which is why they went crazy on these 24 Shi'ites as if they were killing Christians. Shi'ite Hezbollah did the same thing to Christians when they took over Lebanon. Islam looks the same regardless if Sunni or Shi'ite because they all source the Qur'an for its murderous teachings.

I fear all of the sleeper Iranian cells in America just waiting for orders to attack from within. Considering Assad's Shi'ite alliance with Shi'ite Iran and that the US idiots in charge planning on helping Sunni Al-Qaeda topple Shi'ite Assad, it may not be too long before Hezbollah in America starts attacking Americans for our idiot leaders attacking Assad.

It's sad, but I think the best the rebels could possibly produce at this point is another Assad. At worst, they may hand Syria to these people.

It seems to suit the powers that be to portray these 'Rebels' - as honourable freedom fighters - when they know they have links to the most heinous of groups - Al-Qaeda - a motley crew of the worst of terrorists....and Obama and his cohorts - including France want to support these monsters. They want Assad out as his Syria is the only country that does not accept aid from America per se.!!!!!

Is not Al Qaeda the rebels! And … Does not Obama want to support the rebels? Also, did not Russia demand that the U.S. stay out of the Syrian civil war or else?

We should have pulled back on the Middle East a long time ago and allow the Middle East fight amongst themselves. We should have only stood by Israel by being on alert for when they might ever ask for our help!!!

Arabs—or Islam—breed nothing but blood and violence.

What exactly is your time frame for action Mr. President? Is it Congress that's holding you back?
You didn't need Congress when you sent missles into Pakistan.

The more information we receive makes me believe there is no "right" side in this conflict. These are people with philosophies that the Western mind cannot grasp. The lack of any basic humanity from either side leads me to the conclusion that they should handle their own country's problems themselves. I empathize with those people who have moderate leanings, but if they open their mouths, it is an immediate death sentence, so they must remain silent.

This kind of thing proves madness and insanity of that sector of human beings. There will never be peace over there as long as these monsters are allowed to kill willy-nilly the way they do. For that reason, I hope to heaven Obama stays out of it. Lord only knows what repercussions would ensue if he gets us involved. Shocking and evil insanity.

I can't look at that--omg!! But finally, I will say this. You never see these stories about the Israeli's. Please pick on the right groups. Not the people who finally return the crap. They don't blow up kids on the bus or Temples of the other. Only return fire. The reason we help over there is because they're NOT like the other crazies?? They only want a homeland, finally? Thanks for listening

At the risk of the political ineptitude associated with pointing out the truth: Shia and Sunni are locked in an infantile family feud begun 1300 years ago (google “shia-sunni conflict”). So tomorrow we will hear of an atrocity perpetrated by Shia/Sunni thugs on noncombatants of Sunni/Shia origin – or any other non-Moslem group - and so it will continue.
Curious how the adherents to a faith proclaiming compassion for one's fellow man as a central tenet, are so short on this commodity.
We ought not however get on too high a horse regarding barbaric behaviour emanating from sectarian differences: it wasn't long ago when the lynching of black men in the American south was common practice; the murder of a black teenager has just recently been excused by the American judicial system, and we won't now get into the holocaust suffered by the American Indian.
During the Irish War of Independence a Jewish peddler was making his way through the Irish countryside, when he was set upon by a gang of cutthroats. The head cutthroat challenged him: “Be ye Catholic or Protestant?” to which the peddler replied “I'm Jewish”. Thoroughly befuddled by this reply, the head cutthroat took his cohorts aside for advice. Following a short consultation, he returned to the Jew and demanded: “Well, be ye a catholic Jew or a protestant Jew?”

Get with it Jason!!!! They are also HERE in the US..just because those kind don't jump out smack you in the face and say "I am here to kill you!" does not mean there are not the likes of them right here at you say it! These insane aborigines have no sense of worth as a human being and look at themselves as the great murderers they are! These creeps are not even human beings!!

Hillel...Yes the hanging of blacks was an atrocious act. But I will say the rest of the practices done by those insane aborigines over in the middle east, were not used against blacks. Then again look at the insane killings of Whites here as a result of a trial where a man who was defending himself against a Black was not accepted by Blacks and some others so in retaliation there are MANY Blacks killing MANY innocent Whites who had nothing to do with the defense of one man killing the Black who did it! How much outrage do we hear over that!? Notta..SILENCE! The result is...revenge and hatred for acts that others before us have committed is entirely wrong for ANYONE to do and those who are in the middle east countries where their past has never advanced from barbaric actions because of mostly ignorance and the unwillingness to progress is no ones fault but their own! No one should have to bow down to their incompetence and ignorance even in the fact of comparing their acts to those of another. At least Blacks and the American Indian have progressed for the most part! Except for the fact there is still the hatred there for many to see, by the actions done BY too many! When one looks at the number of people in those countries and the number of barbaric actions taken by them vs the actions done by a few in other countries that are not associated with Muslims there is no comparison. The Muslim actions way out number any other actions done by others. For them it's a daily happening, not so in other situations.
