Editor’s note: The sort of jihadists and al-Qaeda fanatics the CIA specializes in arming and supporting have made this sort of behavior their trademark. There is no shortage of them now in Syria, thanks to the CIA, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

The holiest Jewish site in Syria – the 2,000-year-old Jobar Synagogue in Damascus – has been looted and burned, and its roof blown off. The Syrian army and rebel forces have both blamed each other for the demolition of the historic landmark.

It is believed that the Jobar Synagogue, one of the world’s oldest, was built atop a cave where the Prophet Elijah once hid from persecution. One of the earliest historical mentions of the synagogue can be found in the Talmud.

According to Israel Radio, the rebels claimed that the Syrian government looted the synagogue before burning it to the ground.
