‘Largest Massacre of Christians in Syria’ Ignored
The Aquila Report ^ | 11-24-13 | Raymond Ibrahim

Posted on 11/24/2013 2:18:43 PM PST by ReformationFan

The worst Christian massacre—complete with mass graves, tortured-to-death women and children, and destroyed churches—recently took place in Syria, at the hands of the U.S.-supported jihadi “rebels”; and the U.S. government and its “mainstream media” mouthpiece are, as usual, silent (that is, when not actively trying to minimize matters).

The massacre took place in Sadad, an ancient Syriac Orthodox Christian habitation, so old as to be mentioned in the Old Testament. Most of the region’s inhabitants are poor, as Sadad is situated in the remote desert between Homs and Damascus (desert regions, till now, apparently the only places Syria’s Christians could feel secure; 600 Christian families had earlier fled there for sanctuary from the jihad, only to be followed by it).

In late October, the U.S-supported “opposition” invaded and occupied Sadad for over a week, till ousted by the nation’s military. Among other atrocities, 45 Christians—including women and children—were killed, several tortured to death; Sadad’s 14 churches, some ancient, were ransacked and destroyed; the bodies of six people from one family, ranging from ages 16 to 90, were found at the bottom of a well (an increasingly common fate for “subhuman” Christians).

The jihadis even made a graphic video (with English subtitles) of those whom they massacred, while shouting Islam’s victory-cry, “Allahu Akbar” (which John McCain equates to a Christian saying “thank God”). Another video, made after Sadad was liberated shows more graphic atrocities.

Here are the words of Archbishop Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh, Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Homs and Hama (another detailed account, with pictures, appears here):

I don’t even want to know anymore. This is the end. There is no hope for human civilization. Barbarians and idiots are multiplying and saturating the Earth.

This has not been mentioned in any of the world’s large newspapers so that means it did not happen! Do you understand? It did not happen.

The priest didn’t mention it at mass this morning either, so it didn’t happen. Do you understand? It did not happen.

If you believe that you are dumber than a box of rocks.

Does this mean that when I "buy American", I'm supporting this?

A holocaust against Christians is being conducted by agents of evil. At some point it will come here.

Maybe this is the reason Obama wants to help the jihadists in Syria who massacre Christians.

Christians are regarded as lowly infidels and Jews are regarded a rung lower.

Christians getting massacred in Syria? The six million Jews of Israel getting nuked by Iran (or so Obama believes)? America's affirmative action Hitler seems well on his way.

Sadly, I agree. The groundwork for it happening here is happening each day.

These are the wages of the last 150 years or so, of jettisoning of Christianity and the foundational principles of Western civilization, by the intellectual leaders of the West.

I agree with you, that events have a high likelihood of becoming much, much worse, with violence, theft, immorality, lying, jealosies and so many other sinful conditions taking hold of so many people.

If I ever decide to raise a family, I will teach my children how to shoot as soon as they are physically strong enough to carry a rifle. I will not always be around to protect them at the world’s end.

because Obama is an Islamist who dreams of committing the same atrocities on American soil.

“Barbarians and idiots are multiplying and saturating the Earth.”

So they give us a target-rich environment. Lock and load.

The Islamist in the White House is going to try to take away your guns. I know it, you know it. He will threaten your family with jail or financial ruin if you don't comply. What are you prepared to do to ensure that they don't spend the last moments of their lives under a Muslim knife?!

Prayer for Peace in Syria

 

God of Compassion,
Hear the cries of the people of Syria,
Bring healing to those suffering from the violence,
Bring comfort to those mourning the dead,
Strengthen Syria’s neighbors in their care and welcome for refugees,
Convert the hearts of those who have taken up arms,
And protect those committed to peace.

God of Hope,
Inspire leaders to choose peace over violence and to seek reconciliation with enemies,
Inspire the Church around the world with compassion for the people of Syria,
And give us hope for a future of peace built on justice for all.

We ask this through Jesus Christ,
Prince of Peace and Light of the World,
Amen.

Petition: For the people of Syria, that God may strengthen the resolve of leaders to end the fighting and choose a future of peace.

Leftists have no trouble killing the younger members of your family either. So teach them how to shoot as soon as they can stand.

I have nothing to lose and nothing to live for so I can do more against the vermin than you can.

Don't lose hope.

History has a way of repeating itself.

The world is out of control because there are evil forces in power in the West.

Things change.

Reagan brought down the Soviet Union.

It only takes one to achieve great things.

2016 is right around the corner.
