This is a first draft to list and document by video the war Assad has been waging on the Mosques of Syria and its worshippers.  The list is largely compiled from videos that were collected by musafeer, who did an excellent job at: 
http://www.sunniforum.com/forum/showthread.php?89773-Asad-s-soldiers-desecrating-Masajids-and-mocking-the-religin-of-Islam.

The intention is to continue updating, expanding and refining this list. Not included yet are the videos of the attack on Shaykh Usama al-Rifa`i and his Mosque, which can be found in posts under the category “The Rifa`i Shaykhs”.
