Posted on 09/06/2013 6:19:52 PM PDT by marshmallow
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. Print this page
I don’t think Obama give rat you know what Russia think about Christian churches
Remember dude is Muslum
I have truly walked into the Twilight Zone when the President of Russia is trying to protect Christians and the USA is trying to arm and be an air force to those who want to kill them.
This is heart breaking.
Sounds like the start of another Crimean war.
And again Putin shows up Obama and makes him look biased and ineffectual.
Obama wants to set the foundation for the world Caliphate...and he wants to be the Caliph of said world Caliphate.
I hope the Caliphate is a supernatural position...because Obama has shown an inherent weakness at being human.
If Allah/Satan/Shaitan is not behind Obama...he will fall flat on his bony-widdle face.
Unbelievable that we’re backing the perpetrators.
“Sounds like the start of another Crimean war.”
IMHO, might be the start of what the Russians did to a boatload of Somali pirates.
Hint: Think “Mad Minute” - Vietnam Era.
Not to mention that Putin is promoting the Christian notion of Matrimony while Obama promotes Sodomony.
So do many Americans. King Obama is a communists black Muslim. Are we getting the message yet? Impeach.

Anyone holding his breath waiting for Zero’s statement?
Islam is at war with us. Islam is at war with Christianity.
We are not at war with Islam so we don’t intervene for Christians. Russia will. Plum bizarre.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
And I think China and Russia will come to our aid. They have come to believe that freedom works...but they are new to it.
We can show them and rebuild this country without those who hate it.
Let those who hate it live in societies of their own making...let them come to know totalitarian socialism and communism. When they get tired of it...they will escape to us with renewed hearts and minds.
Yep. Never thought I’d see THIS day.
I predict Russia will very soon send thousands of troops to Syria thus accomplishing a fait accompli.
“..what the Russians did to a boatload of Somali pirates..”
Indeed they did fine job;-))
I don’t think Vlad really cares that much for the christians. This just shows Barry in poor light.
I never thought I’d see the day when Russia cares more about Christians than the US president does.
I wish Putin was our President
Russia Calls for Protection of Christian Bakeries in USA from Obama attacks
Indeed they did fine job;-))
What did they do? I can pretty much imagine what it might be, but is there a link you could share? In any case... Go Putin!!!
As a cold war kid, my life has gone full circle.
Whattabout protection for places in North America that want to return to/maintain the rule of law and live under the US Constitution?
The Russian Foreign Ministry calls for the protection of Christians?
This is an episode of the Twilight Zone. I’m sure of it.
Well I guess we shouldn’t have expected someone named HUSSEIN to stand up for the Christians in the region.
you say: “I dont think Vlad really cares that much for the christiansa’
I think you may think wrong.
Great photo of the restored cathedral - have you seen these?
I wonder what else Putin knows about our first female president..?
If Putin is serious—he should send paratroops to this endangered city and defend it from the “rebels”—I am sure the president of Syria wouldn’t object. Limited role—protect Christians from death.
Pope writes letter to Putin ahead of G20 addressing Syrian Crisis:
I guess Putin read the letter.
There is no mention of Pope Francis writing to President Obama, btw..
>>>What did they do? I can pretty much imagine what it might be, but is there a link you could share? In any case... Go Putin!!!<<<
Thank you! Good to see someone (the Russians) blowing these muzlim bastard pirates out of the water. I am sure 0dumbo is steaming about this!
OMG... I really can’t believe that Russia is MOREMORAL than the US.......but it SEEMS LIKE IT IS!!
I agree. It's just downright tragic that we are the ones backing the people who are attacking the Christians. Unfreakinbelievable!
On a side note: I was a teenager in the 80's. I remember all the cold war stuff- The news media ran non-stop editorials that Reagan was going to get us all killed. Or there were articles about how we were going to nuke Russia, or they were going to nuke us- these stories ran every day. There was even a movie where it showed what a hellish life we would be leading post nuclear Apocalypse. As a result of all this, many people who grew up then, including myself, at times, did not think that we would live to make it to adulthood.
(Then again we also had quite a few EOTWAWKI parties-so we didn't always take it so seriously either.)
But, if I was feeling bothered about something I'd seen, or heard, about Russia and the conflict, I'd talk to my mother. ( Not that she was an authority on world affairs -She really could have cared less), but, when I mentioned anything, she would always tell me, with 100% certainty in her voice : "Stop worrying-Russia will be converted. The Blessed Mother said so."
I wouldn't say my mom is overly religious either. She was raised Catholic, and went to Catholic school back in the 1950's-But she must've told me that a million times: "Russia will be converted".
It is Ironic in light of what's happening there today.
i agree. this is a game to Putin.
We are now the bad guys, and Russia is the good guys.
not prior to now, thanks!
What Russia is doing is the fruit of so many years of prayers for the conversion of Russia. Now it is standing up for persicuted Christians.
I think you are right. Putin is exploiting the weakness Barryo has with the folks back home (he isn't one of us, and by that I mean, he isn't American, his childhood wasn't typical Christian rooted American Christmas, Easter, THanksgiving, and the Fourth of July, heck he can't even legitimately claim the racist grievance over slavery because his daddy's family wasn't here.)
Barry's Muslim roots have him squirming, here, and Putin is enjoying being able to prod him.
“And again Putin shows up Obama and makes him look biased and ineffectual.”
Putin is toying with this lightweight....funny in a way but so very sad.
Russia is trying to protect Christians?
While the US led by Obama is backing Al Qaeda?
Upside Down World is here...
