Syrian Christians: 'Why Is America at War with Us'
CBN News ^ | 6/27/13

Posted on 07/01/2013 6:48:42 PM PDT by marshmallow

Syrian Christians are asking why the United States supports extremists who want to turn Syria into an Islamic state.

That testimony came during a congressional hearing on Syria's religious minorities Tuesday.

Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., who chairs the House Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights, called on President Barack Obama to defend the rights of Syrian Christians.

In an opening statement at Tuesday's hearing, Smith said statistics show "that Christians are even more fearful for their lives and safety than other segments of the Syrian population."

Nina Shea, director of the Hudson Institute's Center for Religious Freedom, testified that Islamic insurgents are targeting Christians for "ethno-religious cleansing."

Indeed, some American Christians are justifiably appalled.

America is not.America succumbed to self inflicted wounds November 6, 2012. The bastards that call themselves “Americans” that returned the imposter to the White House is at war with you. And is at war with real Americans.

I always knew this sort of thing would happen, for some reason I thought it was waaaaaaay in the future not in my life time.

I do know that obama is AN anti-Christ, I do not think he is THE anti-Christ, but in fact the precursor.

I didn’t think it’d be in our lifetime, either.

But it is.

Who do you imagine could be worse? Even his home continent, Africa, is rejecting him.

Could it be Putin? He is starting to ‘flash’ nowadays.

Uh, it’s McCain and Lindsey Graham who want us to arm the Syrian rebels. They’re mad at Obama for not giving the rebels enough aid.

McCain and Lindsey Graham are mad that Obama isn’t giving more aide to the Syrian rebels. Why don’t you include them — and the other Republicans who favor arms for rebels — in your condemnation?

John and Lindsey are effectively members of the admin. Did you see these rodeo clowns during the SOTU? They were wetting their pants with excitement while Obama promised amnesty.
McLame’s real motivation is he loves going to war, even if it is in aid of the enemy.

I do not know and I think we are not meant to know, just be on the look out.
There will be many anti-Christs......
but only ONE ANTI-Christ.
The real issue is be vigilant, always looking always warning.......never ever backing down.
If it turns out this will happen in our lifetime we MUST be ready to fight, not as the world fights it WILL be a spiritual battle.

No, on Syria, Obama is better than them. He’s obviously reluctant to get involved, and McCain and Graham are angry about that.

They’re not “going along with him,” they’re criticizing him for not sending heavy aide to the rebels. Obama is actually more sane on Syria than these two GOP senators.

Other than Rand Paul, what Republican Senator is speaking out against aide to Syrian rebels? Please give me his or her name, so I can write and congratulate him.

I can give you a lot of names of republicans who are blasting Obama for not sending the rebels “enough” weapons and heavy firepower.

I do know that obama is AN anti-Christ, I do not think he is THE anti-Christ, but in fact the precursor.

I've said this before, when he was first elected, and I'll say it again, now, for I have seen no evidence at all to make me revise my initial assessment. He is the understudy stand in, placed in the 'dress rehearsal' version of 'the role' for the real deal. His primary purpose was to ensure that the machinery worked, that machinery which would propel an obscure nobody into the very summit of power, almost overnight, and without any serious attempt at vetting the 'vaulted one'. In short, while the *real* Antichrist is still waiting in the wings, this guy isn't him.

With all that said, remember when I said 'dress rehearsal'? Those here with some knowledge of the theater, and theater production will understand what I mean. Dress rehearsal is the final rehearsal of the entire show, before the curtain comes up on opening night, and the play goes public. When is it traditionally done? The afternoon of opening night, thus, if I am reasonably correct in my assessments, the 'real deal' is very close to arriving, and the curtain will be going up quite shortly on 666 Productions Company's premiere presentation of "The Antichrist"...

Obama is sending these people weapons.

Linda and McLame desire an unrealistic ‘boots on the ground’ scenario which is beyond pie in the sky.

A pox on both houses.

Glad somebody answered William and his desire to give barry a pass. Does Benghazi not ring a bell?!

Of course mcinsane and graham are out their minds, but that aside, anyone who thinks barry wouldn’t love to dump assad and let the MB loose, is not paying attention.

"To the headline: it is not America it is obama."

That's a distinction without a difference since the effects are functionally identical to America being at war with them as far as the people targeted by Barry's Mooze Lame pals can tell.

True, there's no "paid for by USA tax dollars" stamp on the small arms and small arms ammunition, but when Barry starts giving the rabid packs of animals roving the country and beheading people US air support the way he gave them air support in Libya, will the planes have US markings or special "Barry Corpse" markings?

The man acts in our name as long as he's President. It's not like they see massive demonstrations against Barry or Barry's war on Christians the way they see massive demonstrations against the government in Egypt, like those that took place in Europe when countries threw out the Communists, or even when millions of Frenchmen were in the streets against the marrying of queers to one another.

All they see is business as usual and media talking heads supporting Mooze Lames as "freedom fighters", demonstrations celebrating queers marrying one another, and talking heads talking the great victor queers won. No one here is staging mass demonstrations against what Barry is up to and that's what the rest of the world understands. Conservatives still haven't learned what the democrat fascists had learned by the seventies, that what the world media sees in the streets is what the rest of the world believes, not what they read, and not what the talking heads have to say.

Barry and his crowd idolize people who gemerate mob violence and insurrection to further their fascist ideal. Until they see an equal and opposite reaction they won't beleive anyone is really opposed to them. People speaking out against them are just representatives of factions, not really representatives of anything widespread, that's how they think. They see everything way the third regimes and populations see things, not the way Americans in general see things and have seen things for generations. For them, there are no checks and balances, there are only the weak and the strong and the strong can put potentially violent mobs in the streets to get what they want.

SC -- with due respect, this is why I argue for Assad as the lesser evil who is better for Syrian Christians.

he's evil, but the opposition are worse, far far worse for Christians, Israelis and the West
