More Horrors for the Syrian Christians October 25, 2016Posted by Tantumblogo in asshatery, disaster, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, sadness, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
Please pray for the Syrian Christians (and Iraqi, and Egyptian, and……), and help them if at all possible. Some recent demonic atrocities from the “religion of peace,” via Vox:
The sick jihadis killed children, the eldest was just four years old, in an industrial dough kneader in the Syrian town of Duma.
In a chilling testimony, one Syrian woman spoke of “Christians being killed and tortured, and of children being beheaded in front of their parents.”
Speaking to Dr Yvette Isaac, from advocacy charity Roads to Success, Alice Assaf said: “Our neighbour came in and said: ‘Umm Issa, they have taken many girls about 300 girls. They were taken to Duma. Many of them were Christians and few were Alawites.
“At the bakery, there were six young people who were working there. We knew them. They were burned in the oven, six well-framed men.
“Then there were 250 children. They were put in the dough mixer, they were kneaded. The oldest one of them was four-years-old.”
As well as dealing with ISIS, Duma has been the site of bloodshed and violence as the city has found itself at the heart of the Syrian civil war.
The brutal killings were highlighted by Congleton MP Fiona Bruce before Parliament.
Recounting Dr Isaac’s testimony, Mrs Bruce said: “She showed us recent film footage of herself talking with mothers–more than one– who had seen their own children crucified.
“She told us of a mother with a two-month-old baby. When Daesh knocked at the front door of her house and ordered the entire family out, she pleaded with them to let her collect her child from another room.
“They told her, ‘No. Go. It is ours now.’”
The horrific killings comes as ISIS continues to wipe out Christians in the Middle East, targeting believers in Iraq and Syria.
The report, by charity Open Doors UK, found Christians in the region have been taken hostage, church leaders assassinated, homes and businesses destroyed and women and girls raped and forced into sexual slavery.
ISIS terrorists took the Christian town of al-Qaryatain, Syria in August 2015, trapping the town’s 300 Christians and murdering 20 who tried to escape.
Christians returning to the town, which has been liberated by rebel forces, have found their homes and businesses reduced to rubble and landmines left by ISIS littering the town.
Before 2011, Syrian Christians numbered about eight per cent of the population of 22million. [Other data indicate it was more like 12-15%, numbering around 3 million]
Today about half are believed to have left the country. [Thus Christians are being finally and completely driven from our ancestral homeland, where Christians have lived for 2000 years, 600 years longer than any muslim. Indeed, the name “Christian” was created in Antioch in Syria]
Chilling. Christians, crushed between the vice of islam on the one hand and progressive meddling on the other.
As Vox Cantoris notes in several other posts, the United States government under Barack Hussein Obama is directly responsible for this ongoing genocide and cavalcade of unending, nightmarish atrocities. It was Obama who gave the green light for Syrians to rebel against Assad, and to Turkey to fund and arm them. It is Obama who has made practically every single possible error that could be made surrounding this hellish, unending conflict. It is Obama who is flirting with world war by antagonizing Russia as much as humanly possible, not only in Syria but in Ukraine and elsewhere.
The way things have developed, it’s almost as if Obama wanted to turn some of the most important countries in the Mideast over to the most radical muslims (go figure, from our first muslim president). Certainly he tried, but fortunately failed, so far, in Egypt. He largely succeeded in Libya. In Syria, he ran into a lot more opposition than he expected, and continues to not comprehend that, with Russian support, Assad is very unlikely to be removed from power. Now the best thing for the West (especially the US) to do is to focus on the real enemy (ISIS) or totally disengage. What the Syrian people, especially the few remaining Christians, need most at this time is not saber rattling or geo-political gamesmanship but the quickest end to the war possible. I pray the next president has the wisdom to stop trying to play god and meddling in the affairs of nations everywhere and terminates all these endless and totally fruitless wars*.
*- I’m okay with continuing efforts against ISIS if those efforts are done seriously and with a clear objective, and not the pretend war Obama’s been fighting for the last two years, spending billions of dollars burning up aircraft hours boring holes in the sky and dropping maybe one or two bombs a day on camel herds.
