Christians who have fled Syria due to the uprisings against the Assad regime are the most frightened among the refugees, according to a BBC News correspondent. They are afraid to speak up for fear of reprisals. One reason they have been under attack is because of the perception on the part of the rebels that Christians support Assad. While some do support the Assad regime, which has protected Christians, some Christians are supporting the uprising too, including a few who are prominent members of the Syrian National Council, the main opposition group. “I see no future, not only in Syria but in all the Middle East,” one Christian woman said. “If people get a chance to leave this region, they will just do it,” she said (BBC).
