‘Largest Massacre Of Christians In Syria’ Ignored

The excerpt below links to other articles detailing the graphic aftermath of the persecution of Christians under Islam. Viewer discretion is strongly advised …

1 Peter 4:12-13, “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you … but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.”

Matthew 24:29-31, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days … they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect …”

Colossians 3:12-13, “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another …”

By Raymond Ibrahim, Frontpage Mag – “The worst Christian massacre—complete with mass graves, tortured-to-death women and children, and destroyed churches—recently took place in Syria, at the hands of the U.S.-supported jihadi ‘rebels’; and the U.S. government and its ‘mainstream media’ mouthpiece are, as usual, silent (that is, when not actively trying to minimize matters).

The massacre took place in Sadad, an ancient Syriac Orthodox Christian habitation, so old as to be mentioned in the Old Testament.  Most of the region’s inhabitants are poor, as Sadad is situated in the remote desert between Homs and Damascus (desert regions, till now, apparently the only places Syria’s Christians could feel secure; 600 Christian families had earlier fled there for sanctuary from the jihad, only to be followed by it).

In late October, the U.S-supported ‘opposition’ invaded and occupied Sadad for over a week, till ousted by the nation’s military.  Among other atrocities, 45 Christians—including women and children—were killed, several tortured to death; Sadat’s 14 churches, some ancient, were ransacked and destroyed; the bodies of six people from one family, ranging from ages 16 to 90, were found at the bottom of a well (an increasingly common fate for ‘subhuman’ Christians).

The jihadis even made a graphic video (with English subtitles) of those whom they massacred, while shouting Islam’s victory-cry, ‘Allahu Akbar’ (which John McCain equates to a Christian saying ‘thank God’).  Another video, made after Sadad was liberated shows more graphic atrocities.

Here are the words of Archbishop Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh, Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Homs and Hama (another detailed account, with pictures, appears here):

What happened in Sadad is the most serious and biggest massacre of Christians in Syria in the past two years and a half… 45 innocent civilians were martyred for no reason, and among them several women and children, many thrown into mass graves. Other civilians were threatened and terrorized. 30 were wounded and 10 are still missing. For one week, 1,500 families were held as hostages and human shields. Among them children, the elderly, the young, men and women….  All the houses of Sadad were robbed and property looted. The churches are damaged and desecrated, deprived of old books and precious furniture…  What happened in Sadad is the largest massacre of Christians in Syria and the second in the Middle East, after the one in the Church of Our Lady of Salvation in Iraq, in 2010.

In the Iraqi attack of 2010, al-Qaeda linked jihadis stormed the church during service killing some 60 Christian worshippers (see here for graphic images of the aftermath).

While the archbishop is correct that this is the ‘largest massacre of Christians in Syria,’ it is but the tip of the iceberg of the persecution the nation’s Christian minority has suffered—including beheadings, church bombings, kidnappings, rapes, and dislocation of hundreds of thousands of Christians—since the war broke out …” Read more.

Drawing Near Unto ‘Allah’: Hamas Threatens Israel With Genocide

11/22/2013 1 comment

Because harvesting the skulls of Jews for peaceful purposes is an act of worship that draws them closer to “Allah”

Hadith, Tabari 7:97, “The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, ‘Kill any Jew who falls under your power.’”

Hamas Charter: "... Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them) ..."

Hamas Charter: “… Muslims will fight the Jews (and kill them) …”

By Elad Benari, INN – “Members of the Hamas terrorist group that controls Gaza have threatened Israel with genocide.

According to Jonathan Dahoah Halevi of the Alternative Angle blog, the comments were made last week as Hamas marked the first anniversary of the IDF’s counter-terrorism Operation Pillar of Defense which took place in November of 2012.

According to Halevi, Hamas celebrated its ‘victory’ over Israel, saying that the round of fighting demonstrates the ability of terrorist groups to deter Israel through missile attacks on key large urban areas, particularly Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, and through the continuous improvement of military capabilities and the use of tunnels for strategic terrorist attacks, including kidnapping of soldiers to use as bargaining chips.

The victory speeches given by officials in Hamas repeatedly highlighted the group’s commitment to the liberation of all ‘Palestinian territory’, denying the right of the ‘Zionists’ to settle in the land of Israel and a declaration of the intent to perform genocide against Jews when the balance of power is reversed.

This message was expressed in a speech on November 13, 2013 given by Khalil Al-Hayya, a senior Hamas figure who is a Hamas parliamentarian, a member of the political bureau of Hamas and the Association of Palestinian Scholars which is affiliated with Hamas.

‘This way [Hamas’s commitment to jihad] says to them:

[You] Zionists, you have no place on the land of Palestine … we shall expel you from our land and we will fight against you on it [on the land], we will kill you or expel you from it when you are submissive … the jihad and the martyrdom in the way of Allah are our road and our track which are meant to fulfill our triumphs and fulfill and protect our [Muslim] nation.'” Read more.

Flashback: Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas: Palestinians Who Kill Jews Cannot Be Punished – “Because to punish Palestinians for killing Jews would, in their mind, be punishing someone simply for following the commands of their ‘prophet’ Mohammed. He was, after all, a ‘perfect example for mankind‘ to follow whose teachings are ‘the fire with which’ they ‘harvest the skulls of the Jews.’ It is therefore an act of worship to kill Jews, and an act that draws them closer to ‘Allah’ is an act that must be praised, not punished …” Read more.

Florida School Board Votes To Keep Textbook Promoting Islam, Calls Mohammed The ‘Messenger Of God’

11/22/2013 2 comments

Why should Islamists and their leftist enablers only work on changing the minds of informed adults when they can focus on corrupting the minds of those much more impressionable? Parents, teach your children the ways of the Lord and never remain seated when the enemy makes a stand …

Hadith, Al Bukhari 4.268, “Allah’s Prophet [Mohammed] said, ‘War is deceit.’”

Omar Ahmad, Chairman of the Board, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR): “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith but to become dominant. The Quran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”

Isaiah 5:20a, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness …”

Isaiah 5:20a, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness …”

WND – “A school board in Florida, which wields considerable influence on the curricula of public schools nationwide, has decided to keep a controversial world history textbook that has been criticized for sanitizing Islam’s violent history while diminishing Christianity.

The decision Monday by the Volusia County board, without a formal vote, came after hearing four hours of public comment, the Daytona Beach News-Journal reported.

The dispute over the ‘World History’ textbook published by Prentice Hall escalated earlier this month after a Deltona High School parent complained about its treatment of Islam to a friend, who organized a protest rally before the School Board’s scheduled Nov. 5 meeting. The meeting ended up being canceled due to unspecified ‘security concerns’ raised by the U.S. Justice Department.

An opponent of the book at the hearing Monday, Walter Hanford, said it ‘whitewashes’ the history of Islam, including the involvement of Muslims in the 9/11 terrorist attacks and the shooting at Fort Hood, Texas, the Daytona Beach paper reported.

The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations has called protests against the book ‘un-American.’

Wilfredo Ruiz, an attorney for CAIR-Florida, has insisted that opponents ‘just want to create an environment of intolerance toward Muslims and an environment of hate against Islam.’

CAIR, meanwhile, was named in 2007 by the U.S. Justice Department as an unindicted co-conspirator in a plot to fund the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.

According to FBI wiretap evidence from a 1993 meeting of Muslim Brotherhood leaders and activists in Philadelphia, CAIR was formed to burnish the image of Muslims in the U.S. in support of the Brotherhood’s stated aim of ‘destroying Western civilization from within’ and replacing it with Islamic rule.

More than 500 students at five Volusia high schools signed a petition in favor of keeping the textbook and the accompanying curriculum, the News-Journal reported.

‘We hope that the School Board will respect our voices in the process of education and reject voices of intolerance and censorship,’ the petition states.

Opponents argue the textbook favors Islam over other religions, noting it has a 36-page chapter on Islam but no chapters on Christianity or Judaism.

It declares that Muhammad is the ‘Messenger of God’ while stating, in contrast, that ‘some believed’ Jesus ‘was the messiah.’

It instructs students that jihad is a duty that Muslims must follow, Fox News reported last summer which Brevard Public Schools decided to keep the book amid protest..

‘Jihad may be interpreted as a holy war to defend Islam and the Muslim community, much like the Crusades to defend Christianity,’ the book states.

The News-Journal cited Armando Escalante of Port Orange, Fla., who at the Monday meeting called the book ‘ridiculously biased.’

‘The whole history of Muslim is violence,’ he said” Read more.

INSANE: UK Schoolchildren Threatened To Be Punished For RACISM If They Did Not Attend Religious Workshop On ISLAM

11/22/2013 Leave a comment

Let’s teach them how wonderful the very religion responsible for the death and destruction of over 270 million non-Muslims during the past 1,400 years truly is. What can possibly go wrong? …

Proverbs 12:15a, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes …”

Proverbs 12:15a, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes …”

Qur’an Sura 8:55, “Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve [non-Muslims] …”

Hadith, Sahih Muslim 1:33a, “The Messenger of Allah said: ‘I have been commanded to fight against people till they testify that there is no god but Allah, that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah, and they establish [Islamic] prayer …”

SWNS – “Parents today slammed a school after children as young as eight were told they would be punished for RACISM if they did not attend a religious workshop – on ISLAM.

Angry mums and dads were sent a letter by Littleton Green Community School, in Huntingdon, Staffs., warning their children would be considered racist if they did not go on the school trip.

The visit to Staffordshire University – for Year 4 and Year 6 pupils – had been arranged as part of the children’s ‘cultural education’ on November 27.

Headteacher Lynn Small wrote to parents and said if kids did not attend a ‘racial discrimination note’ would be made on the pupil’s records and would remain there for their school careers.

On top of that, they were also ordered to pay £5 towards the cost of the trip.

Yesterday parents blasted the school’s ‘ludicrous’ threats and accused the school of trying to blackmail them.

Stacy Waldron, 26, who has an eight-year-old daughter at the school, said: ‘I feel my child will be racist if I don’t allow her to go.

‘This is my choice, not hers, and she shouldn’t have to pay for it.’

Mum-of-four Tracy Ward added: ‘I was shocked by the letter. To be told my kids have got to attend this workshop is disgusting.

‘Everyone should have a choice but that’s my opinion and I don’t want a stain on my kids’ record as a result.

‘They are not old enough to be called racist.’

Her sister Donna, whose daughter also attends the school, said: ‘It’s not our religion. We should have a right to stop our children going.’

Another parent Gillian Claridge, 55, added: ‘To be told we had to pay for the trip as well was just a kick in the teeth.

‘How dare they threaten to brand the children racist at such a young age. Its going to make them feel like little criminals.

‘The very nature of religion is all about choice – on this occasion they were not being given any choice at all.

‘It was draconian move and its left a lot of parents fuming.'” Read more.

Scientists Puzzled By Massive Gamma-Ray Burst In Space Suggesting A ‘Common Central Engine’ To ‘Contemporary’ And Distant Universe

11/22/2013 1 comment

God said “Let there be” and there was. I love science, and even though scientists sometimes love to speak as if they know it all, God always has a way of saying, “No. You don’t.” …

Psalms 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God; And the firmament shows His handiwork.”

Jeremiah 10:12, “It is He who made the earth by His power, Who established the world by His wisdom; And by His understanding He has stretched out the heavens.”

By Pete Spotts, CSM – “An exploded star some 3.8 billion light-years away is forcing scientists to overhaul much of what they thought they knew about gamma-ray bursts – intense blasts of radiation triggered, in this case, by a star tens of times more massive than the sun that exhausted its nuclear fuel, exploded, then collapsed to form a black hole.

Last April, gamma rays from the blast struck detectors in gamma-ray observatories orbiting Earth, triggering a frenzy of space- and ground-based observations. Many of them fly in the face of explanations researchers have developed during the past 30 years for the processes driving the evolution of a burst from flash to fade out, according to four research papers appearing Friday in the journal Science.

‘Some of our theories are just going down the drain,’ said Charles Dermer, an astrophysicist at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and a member of one of the teams reporting on their observations of the burst, known as GRB 130427A.

The event, dubbed a long-duration gamma-ray burst (GRB), is typically seen in the distant, early universe, Dr. Dermer said during a briefing Thursday. This one was much closer. And while typical long-duration bursts last from a few seconds to a few minutes, GRB 130427A put on its display for 20 hours.

The event’s duration, relatively close proximity, and the range of observatories in space and on the ground that could monitor it at a range of wavelengths has provided scientists with an unprecedented opportunity to explore the workings of one of the more extreme ends a star can inflict on itself.

The encouraging news: Traits seen in the gamma-ray emissions from initial burst through the afterglow compare favorably to the traits seen in the behavior of gamma rays in more-distant, long-duration bursts.

‘This suggests that GRBs in the contemporary universe and in the early, distant universe share a common central engine,’ Dermer said.” Read more.
