Kim Kardashian has waded into the discussion of Syria's conflict, calling on fans through Twitter to save the ancient Armenian Christian village of Kasab, whose residents fled when rebels seized control of the hamlet in March.She appeared to have bolstered false claims by loyalists of Syrian President Bashar Assad, who said rebels had desecrated the village's churches and slaughtered residents. While wartime propaganda is as old as conflict itself, the Syrian conflict is a unique case, in which all combatants heavily use social media, opening a window into a conflict that reporters can barely enter.Kardashian's use of the two hashtags side-by-side, "#SaveKessab" and "#ArmenianGenocide" also suggested that she was linking the flight of most of Kasab's 2,000 residents to the deaths of an estimated 1.5 million Armenians at the hands of Ottoman forces in the early 20th century.
