200 Muslims Attack Church, Christians Fight Back, Slaughter Them, And Take The Victory For Christ
Shoebat ^ | 7/9/2014 | Theodore Shoebat

Posted on 07/09/2014 7:13:12 PM PDT by markomalley

200 Muslims attacked the Cherebeen convent in Syria, but Christian militants protecting the premises fought back, slaughtered the Muslims and took the victory for Christ.

One of the head Christian militants, named Sari, said:

We stopped them and we killed them but Christian guys from Saidnaya also died in the battle… The Syrian government protects and provides Christian people with weapons and ammunition because they are loyal to Syria

Shoebat.com wrote an exclusive and detailed report on the Christian militia, called The Lions of the Cherubim, who are are protecting the beautiful and ancient church at Saidnaya, which can be read by clicking here.

As we read from one report:

Sari was driving through the Ghouta region east of Damascus last year delivering car parts to a customer when his car was stopped by several armed men. He was forced out of the vehicle, which was driven away along with his wares.

That was the moment the 25-year-old Christian from Saidnaya, 30km north of Syria’s capital, Damascus, decided to join the National Defence Forces – locally based pro-government militia groups armed by the Syrian regime.

Today, he’s a paid militia member operating as a frontline responder to rebel attacks on his mostly Christian-populated town – cannon fodder in a war that has drawn in international powers across the region.

“I wanted to fight because I love my country and I want to defend my town, where they [opposition fighters] used to kidnap people and ask for ransom,” he told The Irish Times.

“In the past, the armed people used to fire mortars into Saidnaya but we attacked their areas and killed a lot of their men and took their weapons. We succeeded in making Saidnaya safe from the mortars.”
With all but two national army divisions (the Alawite-dominated fourth division and the Republican Guard) long since diverted from the front lines to prevent defections, the Syrian regime has become increasingly reliant on civilians from minority religious groups to fight rebels.

Christian militias have been fighting on the side of the Syrian government since 2012, fearing an onslaught from the jihadi groups that emerged from the instability that accompanied the 2011 revolution.

The recapturing of Maaloula and Yabroud – both areas with large Christian populations close to the Lebanese border – was crucial in preventing opposition forces from moving weapons and supplies between Syria and Lebanon. It also means Hizbullah, the Lebanese Shia militia fighting in support of President Bashar al-Assad, has control of important border regions in both countries.

As more Christians die fighting for the regime, the community is set to become further involved in the conflict. Pictures of Sari and his friends on Facebook show them holding guns and dressed in fatigues, while notes mourning friends killed in fighting are also commonplace on social media websites.
Still, he says, there are opportunities for compromise.

“If the armed people want to face us with killing or with negotiations we are ready . . . But we in Saidnaya all have weapons and we fight with the government,” he said.

Using a local expression, he said: “We’re going to protect Saidnaya for as long as women give birth.”

You know the world has become a very confused place when Bashir Assad is considered a friend of Christianity.

Not really. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Assad uses that for his benefit. He still remains a bloodthirsty tyrant. 150,000 dead and counting. Does he still look good to you?

How many Christians in Syria? Half a million? So then Assad would have lost the death count contest.

Assad = Killed 150,000

ISIS = Killed 500,000

Christians now, then all non Sunni fundamentalist Muslims later. So ISIS’s count shoots up even more.

So Assad is clearly the better choice.

To paraphrase Patton's Dictum; “No bastard ever won a war by dying for his religion. He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his religion.”

“we don’t have to love him to recognize that he’s better than the alternative”

Old fashioned dictatorships are as good as it’s ever going to get in the Middle East. Minority Christian communities there go back 2000 years. If the Al Qaeda types that Obama has tried to kiss up to take over, it won’t go well for non - Muslims in Syria or Iraq.

Just like Saddam Hussein in Iraq would have been the better choice.

There would not have been an ISIS with Saddam in charge.

My fellow Christians: Smear every round with Pork Fat.

Bury every terrorist face down wrapped in the skin of a pig. Definitely time to revive effective methods of the British Raj against the forces of Islam.

Heathen Worthy Oriental Gentlemen, fear not! Perhaps Allah will reward your lives of boy, camel, and goat buggery! Our POTUS, Barak Hussein Obama will beseech this of Allah the All Merciful, in your names.

Muslim terrorists and Obama Friends, there is some less happy news. My Imam informs me that if you are defeated in battle by Infidel Christians, you do not get the 72 Virgin Deal in Firdous. You get a slightly used goat of either sex. (Look on the bright side. You're used to it and there's always the Melon Option.)

So do I. Unfortunately we'd be hauled off for providing material support to terrorists. We'll just have to let the Orthodox side of things (i.e., Putin) do the heavy lifting.

Prayer does work. Guns do too.

They temporarily saved the church, and the Moslems get the virgins. Sound like a win-win.

Ironic isn't it.
Because the newer, U.S. Constitution has been redefined, more and more lately exactly as a suicide pact.

He’s only unattractive to the west because of the liberal and progressive mantra. Those guys over there were/are dictators for sure and brutal as well, but they kept the Islamofascists at bay. Now we are on the verge of having a terrorist state that is threatening the whole middle east.

He suggested we restart the Crusading orders. This was a number of years ago, and fear he was ahead of his time.

“He still remains a bloodthirsty tyrant. 150,000 dead and counting. Does he still look good to you?”

Yes. I don’t think he is quite the “bloodthirsty tyrant” his father was. Also, as long as people don’t mess with his personal dictatorship he really doesn’t care what they do. Compared to ISIS or Iran he looks pretty damn attractive.
