Social media activists are reporting that the rebel terrorist group Jabhat Al Nusra (Victory Front), an al Qaeda affiliate, have forced Christian families in the city of Raqqa in Syria to convert to Islam or face death. Other recent reports of forced conversion have also come from residents who fled the majority Christian town of Maaloula which was overrun by the same faction on September 4th.

“If it had been your Lord’s will, all of the people on Earth would have believed. Would you then compel the people so to have them believe?” [Sûrah Yûnus: 99] Koran
