Syria: Last Remaining Christian In City Of Homs Is Reportedly Killed


ANSAmed – “The last Christian who was in the centre of Homs was killed, after the civilian population was evacuated due to widespread fighting.

According to the Vatican’s Fides news agency, 84-year-old Elias Mansour, a Greek-Orthodox Christian did not want to leave his home on Wadi Sayeh street – even though he knew his life was in danger – because he had to take care of his handicapped son, Adnane.

The Wadi Sayeh area, inhabited by both Christians and Sunni Muslims, is still at the centre of clashes between the army and rebel troops. The rebels have barricaded themselves in the areas of Khalidiyeh, Bab Houd, Bustan diwan, Hamidiyeh and the streets of Wadi Sayeh and Ouret al shayyah, surrounded by regular army forces. A Greek-Orthodox priest told Fides that Elias Mansour was killed yesterday. In the days preceding his murder, Mansour reportedly said that nothing would induce him to leave his home, adding that, if he met the rebels, ‘He would remind them about the Ten Commandments and the Holy Scriptures.’ The funeral will be celebrated today in an Orthodox church. Meanwhile, an Orthodox priest is trying to track down his disabled son, his fate remains unknown. According to Fides, the convent of the Jesuits in the Hamidiyeh area was also hit during ongoing fighting. The structure has undergone minor damage but no victims have been reported. The Jesuits and the displaced people who are sheltering within said that they have experienced moments of fear, but are unharmed.” Source – ANSAmed.

Flashback: ‘Ongoing Ethnic Cleansing’: Syrian Violence Drives 90% Of Christians From City Of Homs, Many Fear a ‘Second Iraq’ – ” Almost all Christians in the conflict-torn Syrian city of Homs have fled violence and persecution, amid reports that their homes have been attacked and seized by ‘fanatics’ with links to al-Qaida. With ninety percent of Christians having reportedly left their homes, the violence is driving fears that Syria could become a ‘second Iraq’ with church attacks, kidnappings and forced expulsions of believers.” Read more.

Flashback: ‘Deliberate and Growing’: Christian Persecution From ‘Arab Spring’ Insurgents in Syria Becoming a Steadily Growing Reality, ‘It Will Never Be the Same Anymore’ – “Refugees who have fled to Jordan from Syria are telling mission leaders supported by Christian Aid Mission about deliberate, new persecution from the ‘Arab Spring’ insurgents who are seeking to overthrow the brutal Assad regime in Damascus. Nearly 100,000 Christians so far have fled from Homs and other cities being targeted by government forces, but it is no longer just to escape the crossfire. Now, more reports are revealing that a new wave of persecution is deliberate and growing… ‘It is over; we can’t get back what we lost … It will never be the same anymore for me or my family.’” Read more.

    With all the persecution that’s coming to light, as I was reading this Revelation chapter 6 came to mind. “When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained……

    When will America offer safe harbor to harassed Christians from islamic countries? If the leader of this rogue regime promises it will import 100 million muslims into the United States, why would the entity in the blight house accept persons it seems to detest?

    To iamnotashamedofthegospelofchrist:
    So you are also expecting the sixth seal soon. The rolling worldwide earthquake, which I call the ‘panquake’, will drive the elites into their underground bunkers (Rev. 6:15). If the luciferian octogenarians (CFR) won’t return to the surface after the second quake (7th seal)? Will the second horseman (MB) usurp the Illuminati, and a muslim will be the beast?

      Yes, albert I am expecting the 6th seal and the 6th trumpet. I believe without a doubt, that Jesus has his finger on those ready to open. And yes, I haven’t quite heard it put that way, but that could very well be the catylist that brings the islamic beast into revelation. The 6th trumpet war is the war that is brewing right now, in the middle east. And as ICA points out, when the restrainer steps aside, there is no going back. I just hope everyone is prepared. Continuing to pray for knowledge, wisdom and guidance for all. ICA, willard or Kurt could probably inject more wisdom, than I. God Bless. And Looking up as always.

    This quote is from WND about the routing of Christians from their last resort, 3 Nov 12:
    http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/syrian-christians-fleeing-as-homes-destroyed/

    “The attacks on Aleppo are on the heels of the kidnapping and torture death of an Orthodox priest by the Islamist rebels just a few days ago,” Murray said.

    He accused President Obama of being “100 percent behind the Islamists in this fight.”
    Is there any person able to verify the DOTUS (D = deceiver) is a friend of Christians anywhere in the world? Of course, the entity is neither a racist nor a Christophobe.
