Syria: Maaloula Christians Say Local Muslims Took Part In Rebel Attack Against Village

09/28/2013 Leave a comment

Former Muslims readily admit that a “Muslim is allowed to feign friendship if it is of benefit. Renowned scholar Ibn Kathir states that ‘believers [Muslims] are allowed to show friendship outwardly [toward non-Muslims], but never inwardly.’ This means that your Muslim friends are not whole-heartedly your friends but just deceiving you into believing that they are your friends.” Lies and deceptions. Islam couldn’t exist without them …

Psalm 62:4b, “… They delight in lies; They bless with their mouth, But they curse inwardly.”

Qur’an Sura 3:64, “Verily Allah has cursed the Unbelievers [Jews and Christians] and has prepared for them a Blazing Fire to dwell in forever. No protector will they find, nor savior…  ‘Give them double torment and curse them with a very great Curse!’”

By Fady Noun, AsiaNews – “According to families who fled Maaloula (Syria), some of their Muslim neighbours were involved in the attack that devastated their village located about fifty kilometres from Damascus, dispersing its residents.

Perceived as a betrayal of the long-lasting trust that existed between Christians and Muslims in Maaloula, where Muslims make up about 30 per cent of the village population.

The presence of young Muslim fighters from the village among Syrian rebels appalled the Christian population. However, it is a sign of the growing ambiguity of Syria’s armed rebellion.

These facts give that battles that occurred in Maaloula from 3 to 7 September another perspective. Speaking for the first time anonymously, survivors from Maaloula described how elements from the Syrian Liberation Army and the al-Nusra Front coordinated their attack in an attempt to take control of the town.

The explosion of a car driven by a suicide bomber at an army checkpoint at the village entrance was the signal for the attack. Almost immediately, armed rebel groups sprung out from within Maaloula, smashing doors to gain entrance into Christian homes.

With dramatic details, witnesses describe the climate of terror that prevailed, the summary execution on Saturday of three men who, after a failed attempt by the Syrian army to retake Maaloula, refused to recant their faith as well as the kidnapping of six others, whose fate remains unknown to this day.

One of the survivors reports that his house was invaded almost immediately after the car’s explosion at an army checkpoint. Rebels came into the house and moved around as if they were familiar with the place.

After escaping with her husband and their daughter in the rearmost room of their home, she was joined there by attackers who claimed to have smashed the statue of the Virgin Mary at the entrance of the house.

A stifled sob in her throat, she remembers how she wished to die rather than see daughter raped before her own eyes. Fortunately, her fears were not realised.  Nevertheless, she does remember that her husband was forced to recant his Christian faith, the barrel of an assault rifle at his head.” Read more.

Flashback: Syria: Rebels Attack Christian Homes, Churches, Many Feared Dead, ‘Convert To Islam Or You Will Be Beheaded’ – “A Maaloula resident said the rebels, many of them sporting beards and shouting [Allahu akbar], attacked Christian homes and churches shortly after moving into the village overnight… Now, Maaloula ‘is a ghost town. Where is President Obama to see what befallen on us?’ asked the man… Another resident, a Christian man, said he saw militants forcing some Christian residents to convert to Islam. ‘I saw the militants grabbing five villagers Wednesday and threatening them (saying): `Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded,’ he said.” Read more.

Flashback: Syrian Islamist Rebels To Christians: Prepare To Die If You Refuse To Convert To Islam Or Pay The ‘Jizyah’ – “This led to a question about the future of Syria’s minorities such as the Christians. Ahmed, Basah, and Hamid Hassan all agreed – Christians could only live there if they either converted, or paid the ‘Jizyah’ – a special tax levied on non-Muslims in previous centuries in the Middle East. If not said Bahar, they could be killed. When asked why, the answer was, to them, quite simple – because the Prophet Mohammed said so.” Read more.

Pakistan: Muslim Insurgents Obstruct Relief Efforts For 100,000+ Left Homeless After Massive 7.7 Quake

If Islam didn’t exist neither would problems like this, among so many others …

Qur’an Sura 3:28a, “Let not the believers [Muslims] take for friends or helpers unbelievers [non-Muslims / infidels] … if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah …”

By Zahid Gishkori, The Express Tribune – “Minister for States and Frontier Region (SAFRON) Lt General (retd) Abdul Qadir Baloch informed the lawmakers on Friday that death toll had crossed 400 in Awaran district of Balochistan as insurgents continue to obstruct relief efforts in the quake-stricken zone.

Qadir, who rushed to Balochistan on the instruction of the Prime Minister soon after the calamity hit six districts of the province, said more than 600 people were injured when the 7.7-magnitude quake pounded the region.

‘Nobody is ready to see Balochistan’s wounds,’ he observed while criticising the Sindh government for its sluggish response to help out Balochistan.

The calamity has left over a hundred thousand people homeless in some 11 villages razed to the ground, he informed the House.

Three battalions of Pakistan Army have already reached the quake zone where Frontier Constabulary started relief operation, the minister told the lawmakers.

The minister who had rushed to Awaran revealed, ‘We heard firing while landing in one of the areas. We thought our convoy may be the target, but it could not be established,’ Baloch told the house.

Mashkay, the epicentre of quake, is considered to be stronghold of the militant group—Allah Nazar. But the minister emphasised that the military is only conducting relief operation rather than an operation against insurgents. ‘Locals demand relief through Army only,’ he said.

The FC and army will provide security to rescue teams, he also appealed to national and international agencies to come up for assistance of quake survivors.” Read more.

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 …’”

Associated Press – “A major earthquake rocked Pakistan’s southwest Saturday, sending people running into the street in panic just days after another quake in the same region killed 359 people, officials said.

The U.S. Geological Survey said on its website that a 6.8 magnitude quake was felt in Pakistan’s southwestern Baluchistan province.

The Pakistani Meteorological Department measured the earthquake at 7.2 magnitude. The department said its epicenter was located about 90 miles west of the town of Khuzdar.

There were no immediate reports of casualties, said Abdur Rasheed, the deputy commissioner of Awaran district where both quakes were centered.

There may have been little left to damage after Tuesday’s disaster. Few of the mud and homemade brick houses in the area survived the 7.7 magnitude quake that leveled houses and buried people in the rubble across the district of Awaran.

Since then tens of thousands of people have been sleeping under the open sky or tents. Rasheed said they had received reports that some homes damaged but still standing after Tuesday’s quake had collapsed Saturday.

He said they are trying to get information whether people were living in some of the partially damaged homes.

‘Today’s earthquake damaged the already damaged buildings and homes,’ he said.” Read more.

Barack Hussein Obama Negotiates With ‘Destroy-Israel-And-Annihilate-All-Jews-Worldwide’ Iran

But he absolutely refuses to negotiate with GOP “extremists”

Proverbs 14:8, “The prudent understand where they are going, but fools deceive themselves.”

By Daniel Halper, The Weekly Standard – “President Obama announced today that he talked on the phone with Iranian president Rouhani:

‘Just now I spoke on the phone with President Rouhani of the Islamic Republic of Iran,’ he said. ‘The two of us discussed our ongoing efforts to reach an agreement over Iran’s nuclear program.’

This is the first time leaders from America and Iran have spoken since 1979.

‘I reiterated to President Rouhani what I said in New York. While there will surely be important obstacles to moving forward and success is by no means guaranteed, I believe we can reach a comprehensive solution.

‘I’ve directed Secretary Kerry to continue pursuing this diplomatic effort with the Iranian government. We had constructive discussions yesterday in New York with our partners, the European Union, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, and China, together with the Iranian foreign minister, and going forward, President Rouhani and I have directed our teams to continue working expeditiously in corporation with the P-5 plus one to pursue an agreement. And throughout this process we will stay in close touch with our friends and allies in the region, including Israel.

‘Now we are mindful of all the challenges ahead. The very fact that this was the first communication between an American and Iranian president since 1979 underscores the deep mistrust between our countries.’

Obama said that ‘Iran’s supreme leader has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons, President Rouhani has indicated that Iran will never develop nuclear weapons.'” Read more.
