Al-Qaeda Vows to Slaughter Christians After U.S. ‘Liberates’ Syria

Al-Qaeda Vows to Slaughter Christians After U.S. ‘Liberates’ Syria

Posted By Raymond Ibrahim On September 5, 2013 @ 12:36 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 13 Comments

While U.S. leaders continue pushing for war against the Syrian government, today “Al-Qaeda-linked rebels,”reports AP, “launched an assault on a regime-held Christian mountain village in the densely populated west of Syria and new clashes erupted near the capital, Damascus, on Wednesday…  In the attack on the village of Maaloula, rebels commandeered a mountaintop hotel and nearby caves and shelled the community below, said a nun, speaking by phone from a convent in the village. She spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals.”

Arabic news agency Al Hadath gives more information concerning this latest terror attack on Syria’s Christians, specifically how the al-Qaeda linked rebels “terrorized the Christians, threatening to be avenged on them after the triumph of the revolution.”

Thus al-Qaeda terrorists eagerly await U.S. assistance against the Syrian government, so they can subjugate if not slaughter Syria’s Christians, secularists, and non-Muslims — even as the Obama administration tries to justify war on Syria by absurdly evoking the “human rights” of Syrians on the one hand, and lying about al-Qaeda’s presence in Syria on the other.

Sounds like Lebanon all over again. Just wait folks. When the christians defend themselves the international band of idiot press will report on bogus atrocities by one of the sides - and it won’t be their favourite religion of peace.

Putin might be the best we can do for now.

He might be a cynical bastard, but this is a golden opportunity for him and Russia to stand up and be the perceived protectors of Christians, by sending troops in there on behalf of Assad and protecting the Christian communities.

Yes Charles ‘The Hammer’ Martel. Stopped the Jihadic hordes from invading the homelands of our forbearers. Unfortunately Putin allowed the globalists to squash the Orthodox Christians in the former Yugoslavia by taking the side of the Muslims in large part. Hopefully this will be an opportunity he won’t pass up this time.

“-—anonymity for fear of reprisals-—” Somebody want to tell that nun that getting herself shot at already is right up there with “reprisals.” These stories get so bleeping hard to believe or assign any kind of credibility because “nobody” reports them. And how is it that a band of Christians can’t arm themselves and defend their ‘hoods as well as anyone else? Same thing in Egypt. They all seem to think they can dial 911 and turn the problem over to US, US. And BTW-—where is Pope Frankie and why didn’t the nun call him? He could send in a band of combat ready pedophiles and then we could watch onehelluvafight.

There is so much BS flying thru the air out of the ME that you must be really careful what you try to believe. I still say arm everybody and let them fight it out. If everyone has a pistol I guarantee the society will instantly become polite.

Non al Qaeda Sunni Arab moderates have stated that their objective is to exterminate the Alawites:
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/09/05/world/middleeast/brutality-of-syrian-rebels-pose-dilemma-in-west.html


But, they said, one of his tactics has been to promise to his fighters what he calls “the extermination” of Alawites — the minority Islamic sect to which the Assad family belongs, and which Mr. Issa blames for Syria’s suffering.

If you are outnumbered 10-1, you don’t just pick up arms and successfully defend yourself. The pope opposed our adventure into Iraq because he knew, as our “Christian” President did not, that radical Islam would punish the ancient Christian communities for whatever the “crusaders.” did in Iraq. And they did. And frankly< i don’t think our “Christian” government gave a damn. My son had a Christian who served as translator in Bagdad and for helping us, he got his throat slit. Now Christ communities that have been the the Middle East since the time of Christ are being driven out and unfeeling people like you shrug their shoulders and put your trust in THIS other cynical bastard in the White House.

“And yet Israel wants us to get involved. Knowing what happened to Christian communities in Iraq after they engineered our involvement there. Why?”

I’m surmising because they believe the US exercising and extending its sphere of influence over Syria is preferable to Russia. This presumes the US could control the inevitable Jihadist influences in Syria which is an impossibility.

Yeah it would be soooo much better with the crazed Sunni madrassah trained exporters of terror taking over the reins.

Assads family has left the Christians alone, something especially that the Iranian shiites have not done—anywhere.
So this is a islamic sect civil war with Christians the useful tool targets. Arm the Christians obamaumao— oh no— you couldn’t because your “muslim faith” (your words) won’t allow that.

But, uh, Petraeus would have... hence girlfriend exposure and removal by .... Leon Panetta clintoon pimp replaced by Sarge Hagel (rino rubber stamp moron). This is all engineered by profiteering... NOT national security.

Alawites aren't really Shiites, although Hafez Assad (Assad's dad) did pay get some big name Shiite mullah to say they were. Alawites say there is no god but Ali. They believe in reincarnation. Their saints include Plato, Aristotle and the Virgin Mary. All of these are major breaches of Islamic doctrine. If a "Christian" sect named Buddha as a saint, subscribed to reincarnation and suggested that God is really John the Baptist, can that sect really be considered Christian? Frankly, the main reason for Assad's relationship with Iran has to do with needing money to stay afloat. Alawism seems more like a New Age philosophy than a religion.

“oh well, it’s obvious that the American people have no say in the matter, may as well just sit back and watch.”

I’d tend to agree with you in most times, but this is not “most times.” It looks like keeping the calls coming in is having some impact in the House.

“If it ends up with Atlanta being nuked I’ll be p!ssed.”

Pretty fair chance that if dear leader does get to start WWIII that it will end with a lot of Americans dead or sobbing over the deaths of the people who were most important in their lives.

That’s why I respectfully say that if you have not already done so, NOW would be a good time for you to get off your ass and place three phone calls. It’ll take you all of 5 minutes.

Praying for the one true God to avert this war and save our Christian brothers and sisters in Syria.

Psalm 46

46 God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling. Selah

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
6 The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

8 Come, behold the works of the Lord,
how he has brought desolations on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress. Selah

This aptly illustrates what I have noted previously, viz.: There really are no Good Guys here. Certainly, Bashar al-Assad is not a Good Guy--in fact, he is utterly horrific--but I remain unconvinced that the opposition in Syria is generally any better...

They are much, much worse. The opposition has a rabid blood lust towards all Christians.

Hence, Obama's absolute determination to help the Al Qaeda in Syria.

It is truly maddening. Pray for our Christian brethren in Syria.

The middle east is a hell.

We should just isolate the muslims like a cancer. There is no way to fix them outside of converting them all to christianity or nuking the whole area flat.

It is crazy to think ‘democracy’ will fix anything. The muslims will just democratically vote in some crazy islamic maniacs and the problem continues.

As long as islam exists we will have this problem.

And if we have no permanent plan to fix this (see above), nor the will to do it (and we have neither a plan or the will) - we should just stay as far away from them as possible.

We are actually destroying ourselves by trying to deal with their insanity.

I will also say that I believe the Saudis are backing all of this stuff - I never used to believe that, but the news reports about Prince Bandar have changed my mind. Unfortunately our ‘rulers’ are so deep in bed with the Saudis I don’t know how we get out of this mess.
