I think some freepers support Assad because he protects the Christians who make 10 percent of the Syrian population. They see the persecution and murder of Christians in Egypt in the hands of the Egyptian Islamists.
Christians should always remember that they are representatives of our Lord Jesus Christ and they should not do things which blacken the name of Christendom.
That’s right. It’s a damned if you do and a damned if you don’t. We really need to take Iran out of the equation before Syria. Taking Iran out lessens the pressure on Iraq and cuts the source for arms and funding to several terrorist organizations.
