Where there is one report of an attempted forced conversion there are likely many more that are unreported …

Update: Rebels Attack Christian Homes, Churches, Many Feared Dead, ‘Convert To Islam Or You Will Be Beheaded’

Revelation 13:15, “And it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast might even speak and might cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain.”

Qur’an Sura 9:30, “… the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of [God]; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them …”

By Ruth Sherlock and Magdy Samaan, The Telegraph – “Fighting raged through the picturesque mountain village of Maaloula, near Damascus, on Thursday, as the regime launched a counter-attack against the rebels.

‘They entered the main square and smashed a statue of the Virgin Mary,’ said one resident of the area, speaking by phone and too frightened to give his name. ‘They shelled us from the nearby mountain. Two shells hit the St Thecla convent.’

Maaloula, tucked into the honey-coloured cliffs of a mountain range north of Damascus and on a ‘tentative’ list of applicants for Unesco world heritage status, is associated with the earliest days of Christianity…

It is one of only three places in the world where Western Aramaic, a dialect of the language spoken by Christ, is still used.

Until recently, the town had managed to remain mostly unaffected by the civil war that has already claimed more than 100,000 lives. A visit by The Daily Telegraph last year found it ringed by government checkpoints but suffering from the lack of pilgrims and tourists who are normally vital to its economy.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning, rebel groups, a mix of the extremist Jabhat al-Nusra and the more moderate Free Syrian Army (FSA), attacked with full force.

‘First they took a brick factory owned by a Christian guy, who is now missing,’ said the resident. ‘Then at around 5.30am, a car bomb detonated at the checkpoint at the entrance to the village.

‘Some of the rebels entered a home near the checkpoint belonging to Yousef Haddad, a Christian. They tried to force him to convert to Islam.’

A nun living in a convent in the village told the Associated press that 27 orphans living in the convent were taken to nearby caves for shelter.

Video footage posted on YouTube showed rebel fighters on a pick up truck with an anti-aircraft gun mounted on the back firing erratically from inside the mountain town…

Almost a third of the Syriac Christian population has fled the rebel-held northern town of Hassakeh after Christians became targets for kidnappings and assassinations.” Read more.

Somalia: Polio Widespread In Regions Under Islamist Control

Luke 21:10-11, “Then He said to them, ‘Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven …’”

BY DAHIR JIBRIL, allAfrica – “Al-Shabaab’s refusal to allow the supply of the polio vaccine in areas under its control is causing panic among residents at a time when aid workers are struggling to contain an outbreak of the crippling virus.

‘The polio outbreak plaguing Somalia has spread despite significant efforts to curb the disease,’ the United Nations Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in a statement August 15th, adding that insecurity is hampering efforts to contain the virus.

Six years after Somalia was declared free of the virus, at least 105 cases have been confirmed in the country, the ‘worst outbreak in the world in a non-endemic country’, according to OCHA.

Liban Nur, a 65-year-old traditional elder in the town of Bulo Burde in Hiran region, told Sabahi he was very concerned about the spread of polio since al-Shabaab will not allow the vaccine to be brought to the town.

‘Polio is widespread in the region, and this year alone I have seen more than four children who have been afflicted with polio and have not received any medical attention or the vaccine to prevent polio,’ he said.

‘Recently people have been treating themselves with traditional medicine such as herbs that grow [in Bulo Burde] that they boil and then give the extracted fluid to the children with polio,’ he said. ‘This medicine does not cure anything.’

Nur said it is difficult for families to travel to areas under government control where the vaccine is available because many are hampered by economic constraints.” Read more.

Unsealed: A Closer Look At Revelation 6 And ‘The Four Horsemen Of The Apocalypse’ – “Because of ‘Sharia lawlessness’ the ‘Religion of Peace’ is typified by widespread destruction and disparity, and any number of recent headlines bear this out all too well. In Sudan, for example, slavery is explicitly permitted and tens of thousands of Christians are held in bondage, taken as slaves and face starvation because of Sharia laws instituted by an Islamist government. In Mali, 4.6 million people are threatened with starvation following Islamist advances in the north. Starvation threatens more than 7 million citizens in Afghanistan as over 90% of the country’s agriculture is destroyed by drought. In Somalia, Islamist militants deprive 1.3 million people of food, clean water and health care after banning humanitarian aid. In Chad, children starve to death as Islamic ‘doctors’ with ‘healing gifts from Allah’ throw common sense to the wind. Islamists are killing aid workers in Pakistan for trying to save lives with ‘un-Islamic’ polio vaccines… As Islamists engage in an all-out war to oust Bashar Al-Assad and implement an Islamist state in Syria, a flesh-eating parasite dubbed the ‘Aleppo Boil‘ sweeps across the country … The fruit of Islam and its laws have produced and will continue to produce the type of conditions that precipitate and perpetuate all sort of pestilences, all manner of plagues, any number of conflicts and hardships both inside and outside the Islamic world.” Read more.

Video: Syrian Rebel Admits Using Chemical Weapons, ‘We’ll Kill Their Women And Children’

09/05/2013 6 comments

Looks like America’s Islamist “allies” in Syria have already crossed President “I-Didn’t-Set-A-Red-Line” Obama’s red line long ago. Unfortunately for many lawmakers, even news like this will not be enough to sober up the “inebriated johns” who continually rationalize the irrational …

Revelation 17:1b-2, “… the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.”

By Paul Joseph Watson, InfoWars – “A video has emerged of an opposition rebel militant in Syria apparently confessing to using chemical weapons in order to follow Osama Bin Laden’s mantra of killing women and children.

The individual in the clip, Nadeem Baloosh, is a member of an insurgent group called Riyadh Al Abdeen, which is active in the Latakia area of Syria.

Baloosh speaks of ‘chemicals which produce lethal and deadly gases that I possess,’ before going on to state, ‘We decided to harm them through their women and kids.’

Baloosh ponders if it is acceptable to harm women and children before quoting the Koran, ‘Fight them as they fight you.’ He goes on to quote Osama Bin Laden (whom other rebel groups have openly praised).

‘We’ll kill their women and children like Sheikh Osama Bin Laden said – ‘until they cease killing our women and kids,’ he states.

Baloosh goes on to talk about the Syrian Army approaching the area where his rebel group was located, before stating, ‘So we had the idea that this weapon was very powerful and effective to repel them, we announced if they approached one meter, everything is permitted.’

‘We will strike them in their homes, we will turn their day into night and their night into day,’ adds Baloosh.

The footage adds to the increasing weight of evidence that suggests US-backed rebels possess and have used chemical weapons on more than one occasion, although such reports have been habitually downplayed by the mainstream media.

Earlier today Russia announced that it had compiled a 100 page report proving opposition rebels ‘were behind a deadly sarin gas attack in an Aleppo suburb earlier this year.'” Read more.
