Syria’s Sea Of Blood: ‘We Will Slaughter Them And We Will Slaughter Their Children’


Isaiah 17:1-2, “An oracle concerning Damascus: “See, Damascus will no longer be a city but will become a heap of ruins. The cities of Aroer will be deserted and left to flocks, which will lie down, with no one to make them afraid.”

Are we now witnessing the beginning of the end of earth’s oldest continuously inhabited city? …

By Alex Thomson, The Telegraph – “This macabre sight, along with an abandoned Syrian tank marked the beginning of rebel-held Houla. For a few hundred feet there was no sign of life and then quite suddenly the convoy was stopped in its tracks by a crowd that appeared from nowhere.

Women and girls joined in with the men chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ and ‘Assad, we will cut your throat’ with the appropriate gesture of the finger across the throat.

I have scarcely witnessed such extraordinary scenes of people desperate to tell the world what they have been through. We were passed from family to family, house to house, by people, sometimes literally fighting to get their story to the wider world.

All norms of Muslim culture seemed forgotten as we were shown to Riya’s bed. A hauntingly beautiful 15-year-old girl was suddenly, gently rolled on to her side to expose a large dressing where a bullet had exited her abdomen. There are countless such stories. Everybody points to a group of Shia and Alawite villages to the west and east of town. Places like Kabu and Fullah which you can see clearly from the town centre. Everyone you meet says the killers came from these villages to attack the Sunni people of Houla.

They all say that the killers had written a local Shia slogan on their foreheads as they went about their business, shooting and hacking the families of Houla to death. One man spoke for many when he said: ‘When this is over and this is settled and we are victorious, we will kill them. We will slaughter them and we will slaughter their children. We hate them.’

There is also agreement here that more bodies will be discovered. The UN commandeered a flatbed truck – they clearly believed it too. The problem, everybnody here says, is that the unrecovered bodies lie close to the Syrian army positions and nobody dares venture into the killing zone of Houla’s silent no-mans-land.

The burning question is this: if these militia were nothing to do with the government, as President Bashar al-Assad says, how is it 100 men were able to enter a zone where there had been intensive shelling, commit a massacre over several hours, and not be in danger from a single shell, rocket, or mortar?” Source – The Telegraph.

Military options for Syria considered if crisis worsens – “Diplomacy remains the favored option as the U.S. grapples with how best to deal with Syria, but the U.S. military has drawn up plans to use if diplomacy fails. Officials issued fresh reminders of its military alternatives this week as world outrage mounted over last week’s massacre that left more than 100 people dead in the town of Houla. ‘As you know, my job is to provide the commander-in-chief with options,’ said Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. ‘I think the military option should be considered.'” Read more.

Flashback: Expert: A Threatened Assad May Attack Israel – “Middle East expert Professor Eyal Zisser warned on Monday against a possible Syrian attack on Israel, if President Bashar Assad feels threatened by the anti-regime protesters. In an interview with Arutz Sheva, Zisser said that in the short term there is no reason for particular concern, because a situation which is bad for Assad is good for Israel as this means that the Syrian president is preoccupied with his internal affairs and not with attacking Israel.” Read more.

    It occurred to me today that Christians are now fleeing nations in which they have had a presence for countless generations. Egypt, Iraq and now Syria. Up until now, believers in Christ had been tolerated under the old regimes and most saw no reason to leave. Now, they are fleeing by the tens, even hundreds of thousands. Is the Lord driving as many of His sheep as possible out to safer pastures before He brings to pass long awaited destruction, such as that found in Isaiah 17 and 19?

    I believe you can watch the latter day rain fall within the USA starting now and in the future.

    Now is as time for america not to fear but to pickup our crosses and follow him. His coming is soon and the promises of the end are near. We need to be concerned about our own boarders and the sea that protects us from the enemy seen and unseen in the spiritual realm.

    The UN wants control of our waters and all in the seas around us, they want to charge us to fish out of our own land. If the Americans don’t wake up we will be struck by what men think is dead communism. The Americasns have grown away from God and with it entered as rest of stupidity instead of their rest of God. Wake up for those who love the Lord neither slumber nor sleep, they are as their master.

    If you put a carpenter ant in the white house? What did you think would happen? He toured and tore down your boarders, your constitution, ripped the word of Gods’ commanments from our schools and took the mind of much of the youth but yet God is with the remnant and the latter day rain will begin to fall soon and he will bring with his word and the holy voices lifted restoration to our foundations in him and then we can enter into his rest and the end will occur and the thousant years of the enemies bondage will occur and peace will come upon the footstool of the Lord, his creation the great earth and his people.

    When the old tent revivals come to your area go, refresh in his new oil out pouring, drink from him the rock and his watrer whereby you will never thirst again. The Love of Jesus, our God and savior shall be with us till the end and the beginning. He shall not be overcomed. Oh praise his name and his word, in Jesus Christ name, amen and amen.

    Good thoughts AHF you may be onto something – I know that NA is receiving some of them – I wonder where God is sending them all to – that may tells us where we will be reasonably safe ??

    I think the majority of Syrian Christians have crossed the border into Turkey, interestingly enough. They are also fleeing into Jordan and Lebanon. It doesn’t seem like there is any place truly safe, but if our Good Shepherd has His flock on the move, He has a refuge for them.

    If Isaiah 17 or 19 are about to come to pass, at least they won’t be in Syria or Egypt when the “you-know-what” hits the fan.
