You won’t see this bloody tragedy reported in the MSM. It’s the wrong religion for them to even care. The level of anti-Christian hatred and antisemitism is at a level not seen in decades, and I’m not just referring to the Middle East. The same hate can be seen in cities across the US at occupy mob encampments, and Left wing protests. I have a feeling….and I don’t like saying this…that things are going to get much worse for Christians in the coming year. Who we elect as our next president will affect greatly the level of attacks Christians will experience right here at home.
Pray for our brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Their only choice right now in many areas is to flee to a safer place or face death. May God be with them, and against the enemies of the one true God.
….The Syrian Christians to a man told me that the “freedom fighters” where nothing more than Sunni Jihadists looking to take advantage of the various “Arab Spring” movements that had been successfully overthrowing stable dictatorships throughout the region in favor of radicalized Muslim groups affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda. They told me at that time that these groups were not only the main aggressors in the conflict, but that they were specifically targeting Christians for both religious persecution and for political retaliation. Several told me that in Homs the graffiti left by the insurgents often stated, “Alawites to the grave, Christians to the cross.” They told me that rather than the Syrian Army crushing this resistance movement as the Iranians had in 2009, they were actually trying to protect their core constituents from a murder and intimidation campaign that was beginning to mirror what al Qaeda had perpetrated in Iraq during 05-06. The clear strategy of the “freedom fighters” was to attack civilian targets and local police as a way of drawing the Army into a campaign of suppression that they could use to fight the media battle in the western press. Funny, that strategy rings a bell doesn’t it?…..
