Too Hot For The SAEN
The Armanious family had inspired several Muslims to convert to Christianity or thought they had. These converts were actually practicing taqiyya, or religious deception, pretending to be friends of these Christians in order to strengthen themselves against them, as in Qur'an 3:28: "Let believers not make friends with infidels in preference to the faithful -- he that does this has nothing to hope for from Allah -- except in self-defense."
It was these "converts" who knocked on the door of the Armanious home. Of course, the family, not suspecting the deception, was happy to see the "converted" men and willingly let them in to their home. That's why there was no sign of forced entry. Then the "converted" Muslims did their grisly work.
The SAEN goes ballistic when a few American soldiers put panties on the heads of Iraqi prisoners, but ignores the grisly murder of an entire family by Muslims. And remember, this took place in New Jersey, not Damascus.
