Syriac Orthodox Bishop: Muslims Enemies of Christ
The Daily Star (Lebanon) ^ | 7/30/14

BEIRUT: The Syriac Orthodox bishop of Mount Lebanon and Tripoli George Saliba Wednesday denounced Muslims as enemies of Jesus, accusing them of a history of violence and oppression against Christians.

“What is happening in Iraq is a strange thing, but it is normal for Muslims, because they have never treated Christians well, and they have always held an offensive and defaming stand against Christians,” Elnashra.com reported Saliba as saying in a radio interview.

“We are not calling for armament and war; we don’t have the capacities,” Saliba said. “We used to live and coexist with Muslims, but then they revealed their canines [teeth].

“They are the enemies of Christ and they do not differ from the Jews in terms of treating Christians.”

The bishop accused Muslims of centuries of violence against Christians, condemning the attacks on the Christians of Iraqi Mosul.

“[They don’t] have the right to storm houses, steal and attack the honor of Christians,” Saliba said. “Most Muslims do this, the Ottomans killed us and after that the ruling nation-states understood the circumstances but always gave advantage to the Muslims.”

Saliba also said Muslim generations are raised on bad feelings against Christians, saying this applies to the majority of Muslims.

“Islam has never changed, and Muslims have been educated on the bad treatment of Christians,” he said.

I would be hesitant to call muzzies violent murderous pigs because we know they’d respond, “I kill you!!!”

Ultimately, if people do not invest in arms they do not choose to be free. Poland, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, etc., etc., chose to be defenseless.

The majority of Americans have chosen to be unarmed—physically and mentally—against having a Muslim terrorist “serving” as “president.” They have chosen to have a major political party that supports murdering babies. How could they be armed against ANY evil? They can’t.

I’d never call them sand crawling, pederastic goat buggerers, either.

They are the enemies of Christ and they do not differ from the Jews in terms of treating Christians.

Lumping the Jews together with the Muslims for criticism? Not good.

Correction: only the “extremist” muzzies are enemies of Christ.

The rest are all peaceful.

George Saliba Wednesday denounced Muslims as enemies of Jesus

He just said this on Wednesday? Haven't most Christians probably said this since, oh say about about the 7th century?

.....Not surprised by the bishop’s call in regards to the Muslims. This is seen often in the anti-islamofacism websites all the time.

Which gives me hope.

Politically, the American people are without defenses. A majority of voters have voted to destroy the country.

A significant minority are armed, and therefore may save the country.

It’s possible that he meant that the Muslims treat both Christians and Jews lousy.

Eh, I think the way it was worded sounded more like the former.

I agree. But I think you have to leave some leeway for a foreigner speaking English.

“Sharing our experience in carrying that cross, to expel the illness within our hearts, which embitters our life: it is important that you do this in your meetings. Those that are Christian, with the Bible, and those that are Muslim, with the Quran. The faith that your parents instilled in you will always help you move on.

Pope Francis
