Syrian village 'liberated' by rebels... who then forced Christians to convert to Islam
The Daily Mail ^ | Sept 08,2013 | Tara Brady

Posted on 09/08/2013 4:03:49 PM PDT by mware

A Maaloula resident said the rebels, many of them sporting beards and shouting God is great, attacked Christian homes and churches shortly after moving into the village overnight.

They shot and killed people. I heard gunshots and then I saw three bodies lying in the middle of a street in the old quarters of the village,' said the resident, reached by telephone from neighboring Jordan.

'So many people fled the village for safety.'

Now, Maaloula 'is a ghost town. Where is President Obama to see what befallen on us?' asked the man.

Another resident who fled the village of 3,000 inhabitants earlier in the day said in a telephone interview that Assad's forces deployed on the outskirts of the village, while gunmen inside refused to allow anybody in.

He said the gunmen declined to allow fleeing people to take five dead bodies out of the village with them.

He said one of the churches, called Demyanos, had been torched and that gunmen stormed into two other churches and robbed them.

Most of the gunmen are foreigners, he said, adding that he heard different dialects, mainly of Tunisians, Libyans, Moroccans and Chechens.

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.

The two other residents said they heard about the conversions but did not see them.

All three spoke on condition of anonymity out of fears of retaliation.

I don't give a rat's ass for Obama.

I think our only chance to stop this damn thing is to get Congress to say NO.

We also need to find a way of cutting off the flow of weapons our government claims it isn’t giving to the islamists.

Unfortunately I think this has gone on far longer than it would have because of our interference.

My man, "president" obama, as you refer to him ,is one of the daddies of your misery. He is laughing at you. it is his friends, allies, and co horts that are doing this to you. And he [Obama] will not be satisfied until you are dead.

Might not be bad to send Ed Ames to Syria. I recall when he was on Johnny Carson, he had quite a aim too.

Rep. Amash: ‘If Americans Could Read Classified Docs, They’d Be Even More Against Syria Action’

http://www.thedailysheeple.com/rep-amash-if-americans-could-read-classified-docs-theyd-be-even-more-against-syria-action_092013

he has even used social media sites to warn his fellow Congress members that if they vote for military action next week, they might as well clean out their desks because of unprecedented public opposition against it.

Every son of a bitch that voted for obama in both 2008 and 2012 hands are covered with the blood of these people. And I , personally, do not back it.

But for those obama worshipers and voters, their time will come because, by hook or crook, obama will bring those or enough of the mb over here to do here what they did there.

I’ve written to my GOP rep and both Stabenow and Levin demanding a recorded vote.

Levin is retiring so he’s probably a yes vote in the Senate. Stabenow is the one in the tricky spot. She’s got both muslim and Christian Syrians in Detroit protesting intervention in Syria.

Remember, in one of his books Obama said he would stand with the Muslims. And while I understand that statement must be taken in context, the wretched SOB’s heart IS with Islamists.

As far as I know there is not an actual video of her being dismembered...just a report from that town...

Someone correct me if I am wrong...

I saw the militants grabbing five villagers Wednesday and threatening them (saying): `”Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded,”’ he said.


“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.” Rev 20:4

It’s getting clearer and clearer who the foot soldiers of the Beast may be. The time is short.

“..`”Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded...”

That is the Muslim's primary evangelism tool and has been practiced since Mohammed. Streets in towns they “liberated” ran red with Christian martyrs who refused and the others took the invitation. That was one of the reasons for the Crusades.

“Why are we backing these Al Qaeda people...?”

Great question, but it’s always rhetorical —the asker never really waits for an answer, and that’s a problem.

So let’s put our thinking caps on:


1. The US Director of Intelligence, John Brennan, is a MUSLIM.

2. The President of the United States might be a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, and he might not be an American.

Once you swallow those two enormous and troublesome concepts, it becomes much easier to understand the many subsequent and more troublesome developments.

Re: your graphic.

A nice sentiment, but I think you’ll be hard pressed to convince any Serbs of its truth. (We bombed Serbia on behalf of the AQ-linked KLA and Bonian mujahadeen before AQ gave us 9/11 as a thank-you present.)

It makes me mad to read it. I almost feel like asking people not to post any more news of this type - an irrational reaction.

We're bombing on behalf of Al Qaeda.
