Against Bombing Syria

by Steve Ray on September 7, 2013

Greetings from Jerusalem. Please contact your Senator and Congressmen to say NO to a strike on Syria. The rebels are NOT freedom fighters but radical Muslims who are slaughtering Christians and assassinating every opponent.

I watched a video here of a rebel killing and eating the heart of an Syrian soldier. Have you seen the video of the execution of 300 which has gone viral?

Are these the people we want to arm with US dollars? The one’s who will suffer the most from a US strike against Syria will be the Christians.

The USA has already given over millions to aid to the radical Muslim rebels, much in the form of weapons. Last week the rebels assassinated over 300 Christians.

The Arabs in the Middle East have a tribal mentality and in general have no concept of democracy. Democracy is foreign and repugnant to the Muslims mind.

When Saddam Hussein fell (dictator though he was), it was the Christians who suffered. Hussein always protected Christians and they had freedom.

The same with Egypt! Sixty churches have been burned in recent weeks. When Mubarak was deposed (dictator though he was), it was the Christians who suffered. Mubarak protected the free exercise of religion for Christians.

Obama wants to repeat the story by toppling Assad (dictator though he is). But Assad has always provided protection and freedom for Christians. If he too falls the Christians will be slaughtered, as is already happening in rebel controlled areas of Syria.

Might I step out on a limb and suggest it was NOT Assad who used chemical weapons? I suspect it was the rebels who did it – setting up Assad. Assad had nothing to gain but everything to lose. The radical Muslim rebels had nothing to lose and everything to gain by using chemical weapons. I suspect my suspicion will be proved over time.

Join the Pope and the bishops. Call your senators and representatives!

Steve, it is hard to put into words of how much you’re helping the Church and converting the world and thank you for this post! Blessings and Shalom!

I absolutely do not approve any terms of force. 1) Christian villages now being attacked…2) Russia”s new offer to “supervise” control of gas is skeptical. Neither/good positive. This is a political exercise…such as Health Care bill. which was rammed through via Democrats….current Pres. doesn’t know whose on “first” nor whose on “second”. Best thing is to send him on his “bus” tour…bus manufactured in Canada???

I don’t know how you can actually make this into a blog post. Saying these horrible men that were and currently in power are dictators, BUT… Your saying they are justified because they seemed to keep Christians safe (scared them with fear tactics). This is where you are confusing people, your not making things clear for the people that dont know. This is a horrible thing to try to push information and putting Christians in your wording to benefit you. For people that have made as many pilgrimages as you have you should know that Christians are a very small minority. MUSLIMS are the ones that suffer the greatest. But more specific men,women, and most of all children. We should not be focusing on the religion but the person.

“Your saying they are justified because they seemed to keep Christians safe…”

Steve said no such thing. Nor did any of the commenters.

I may be naive here..but usually Christians go with the rule of the law wherever they may be. I can at least say this confidently by the way we live here in India. So every time there is a situation like the one in Syria, I doubt how many Christians would be out there butchering away…that it is no way of getting back at a dictatorial government/leader. I understand to a large extent that atrocities are committed by these Leaders..but those seeking to topple them aren’t exactly clean either …they usually turn out to be more barbaric than the ‘dictator’ they hoped to overthrow. So a sense of caution to these ‘Rebels’; ‘Freedom fighters’ is not completely unnatural. Those fighting for the ‘Kashmiri cause’ in India are not saints exactly. The moment someone takes up the case of the interests of Catholics it raises eyebrows-why shouldn’t one be able to look after or consider the angle of Christian interest-In Saudi Arabia Christians are treated shabbily-Bibles are confiscated and torn, try doing that to a Quran!
