    The local Christians who did not manage to flee have been forced to pay 'Jizya' a punitive tax and to abide by the following rules or face death.

    Not to build in their city nor nearby any church, abbey, or monk’s hermitage.
    Not to show their crosses or books (bible) in-front of Muslims in the city markets or on the roads, and not to use speakers while conducting their masses.
    Not to make Muslims hear their prayers, religious readings, or ringing their church bells.
    Not to participate in any hostile acts against the Islamic state, or hiding spies and wanted people, and if they know about any threat against the Islamic State they must notify it.
    To comply with not to show any of their worship rituals in front of Muslims.
    To respect Islam and Muslims, and not to criticize them.
    To pay Jizya, which is equal to 4 dinars/year (applied on Christians under the Islamic rule in the past, and 1 dinar = 4.25 g of 24 karat gold) that means the annual Jizea would be 17 g of 24 kt gold applied on wealthy Christians, and 50% of this amount on middle class, and 25% on poor Christians, and this amount can be divided on two instalments. According to the gold prices in Syria nowadays, the Jizya will be estimated as following: 17 x 36.59 = $622 / year on wealthy people. 50% x 622 = $311 / year on middle class people. 25% x 622 = $155.5 / year on poor people
    Not to carry/own weapons
    Not to sell pork meats or Alcohol to Muslims, and not to drink alcohol in public
    They must have their own cemeteries as usual
    To comply with the Islamic State rules of decency and conservative dress code.

    Why are women so low to these people. Why do bigots always want to subjugate women, to keep them under educated, to force separate notions of modesty on them, to persuade them its for them to cover up under clothing but a man can do what he wants.

    The Alawites call for the resignation of barrel bomber Assad- a member of this Syrian national minority group:

    Erklärung der Alawiten - Nachrichten Politik - DIE WELT

    Time for Bashar to get the boot and face a judge and jury in The Hague for his crimes.
    A firing squad would speed up the process....

    Wow, the script has perfect english and stamped with an authentic looking stamp. Must be real.

    Perhaps you could strengthen your argument with some more pictures of dead children?

    Alawites distance themselves from the Assad regime?

    It's hard to know if this declaration by self appointed Alawite leaders is significant
    Syrian Alawites distance themselves from Assad - BBC News

    It could be an attempt to position their community for a post-Assad Syria. Is the Assad regime winning a Pyrrhic victory?

    Probably. If there are genuine elections Allawites are minority and they know it. Even a post peace process future is very dangerous for the Allawites.

    Meanwhile here' s the latest map of the war fronts in Syria. The government pushing eastward at Palmyra. Stuck for now Qaryatayn. The jihadi rebels led by JAN in Aleppo province seized a strategic hilltop town.

    Did anyone actually read that fabricated black propaganda from the BBC, two Alawites speaking on condition of anonymity. The think-tanks and information disseminators would really want to up their games this isn't the 1800's people can actually google this keek from the comfort of their armchairs at home. Absolute nonsense.

    Good news. SAA ousts ISIS from Quraytayn. ISIS in full retreat eastward in Homs province. (Pro-regime source in last hour).

    One of the oldest Christian towns in Syria apparently.

    Momentum and a belief to rid their country of the scourge supported by US/Turkey and its dogs in the Gulf are a great motivator.

    I fully expect Syria in later years to offer payback.
