Never fear: the Americans are coming -- on the side of the jihadis, that is. "Russia calls for protection of Christian holy places in Maalula," from Interfax, September 6 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
Moscow, September 6, Interfax - The Russian Foreign Ministry has expressed concern over the attempts made by the armed opposition in Syria to take over the city of Maalula, a symbol of the Christian presence in Syria.
"Moscow is deeply concerned over the fact that terrorist attacks in Syria have affected Maalula, a symbol of the Christian presence in this country. Its residents speak the Aramaic language, which is almost extinct and is the language in which Jesus Christ preached, and the churches located in this city are among the oldest and most honored churches of Christians," the Russian Foreign Ministry's information and press department said in a commentary released on Friday.
The Russian Foreign Ministry called "on everyone who cares about the fate of the people of Maalula to do everything possible to prevent their killing and the destruction of Christian holy places."
"Terrorist attacks need to be stopped immediately. Special responsibility for them rests with those forces in the region and outside of it that encourage terrorists, intentionally or not," the document says.
So Russia wants to protect Christian locations but Obama doesn’t. Yet Putin is a bad guy. I have a lot more respect for Putin than I will ever have for Odumbo.
Protect the Christian holy places, but not the Christians who were forcibly converted or killed. Their daughters were raped or married off to soldiers.
But, the buildings will still be tourist spots generations from now. (Assuming there are any Christians left to go on these holy land tours.)
What would our sissy man-boy prez do then?...besides go golfing.
That would be great.
He would be conferring with Reggie Love!
The world is upside down. Weeping for America.
In the other articles the spelling was Maaloula, so I have added that to the Keywords above for bringing up the history of this topic.
Christianity is people rather than places.
Weren’t the people here already attacked, killed, brutalized, threatened into converting, young women kidnapped, raped, married off to jihadis, etc??
Am I missing something?
Now the world knows what we have known all along, obama is a major failure. Putin is just beginning to put the nails in obamas coffin. Odummy will find a way to take credit no matter what Putin does. Obama is to arrogant to admit defeat.
Putin slapped obama when obama thought all the reporters would follow him to the gym in Russia for his “look at me” photo-op pics. Instead they followed Putin to the sea where he took off his shirt and swam in ice cold water. Obama was left holding the bag. Heard this on Fox and LOL.
Strange days we are living in.
From the pre-Reagon era in Russia where believing in God was unlawful, religion, particularly Christianity, has grown by leaps and bounds. Meanwhile back here in the US, Christianity is under attack by the government.
“Protect the Christian holy places, but not the Christians who were forcibly converted or killed.”
The Christians are still there. Only some of them were killed by the rebels.
Wow! I’ll bet Obama didn’t see this one coming. I figure Putin has a few more tricks up his sleeve yet. Kinda scary
From the pre-Reagon era in Russia when worship of God was unlawful, Christianity in Russia has grown by leaps in bounds. This is good!
Meanwhile back in the USA, Christianity is under attack by the government, a government which, I suspect, would mind is Christianity were unlawful. This not good!!
Have the poles reversed??
change “would” to “wouldn’t”
Don’t feel like the Lone Ranger pal.
Putin makes sense while this hump we have is acting like a crazed radical Muslim.
Which I believe he is.
Russia is our friend. 0bama is not.
The brotherhood is in the building thanks to oil money. America sold out to monsters for cheap oil
With the ruthless military in charge in Egypt and the world hoping Russia’s troops move in to Syria to guard the Christians and the chemical weapons, the terrorists are going to have to find a new playground.
There are still Christians in Syria, and this administration has aligned themselves with their enemies. The rebels are killing Christians.
Didn’t Bush say that Putin wears a cross? Look at who the leader of the Free World is now.
Pray for America to Wake Up
This is one of the “fruits” that came from Blessed John Paul II having consecrated Russia to Mary’s Immaculate heart, Russia coming back to the Christian faith.
Got to do the same for the Middle East, the West, and for America. It will work.
....Or forcing those same Christians to flee, including to Israel.
Then send in some special forces to clear out the muslim scum that invaded. Secure a perimeter and kill anything that threatens it.
Pray for the conversion of ALL now to Christ, including America. It will work.
Strange, can’t hardly believe what I am hearing and reading lately about Russia and the USA.
“Pray for the conversion of ALL now to Christ, including America. It will work.:
It’s the ONLY thing that will work, IMHO
Good for Pooty Poot. obomba has said exactly 0 (zilch, nada)
His wrath has been seen for his muslim bros treated so badly..but for Christians, no so much.
Obama wants to send more knives to al qeada to behead Christians.
Putin will be denounced as a “Crusader”.
God will punish us for what we are doing just as he will blast the Islamic Jihadists. The time is coming for great nashing of teeth and moaning all over the land. people will cry, “What did we do?” they will pray but God will turn his face upon them. His blessings will be for other lands—not the people of a degenerate America. Woe be unto us!
Yes, a sense of right and wrong.
