Syria Militants Massacre Christian Village Population
Syria Report ^ | 12 Jun 2013 5

Posted on 06/14/2013 11:50:58 PM PDT by Mount Athos

More details of a massacre in Homs late last month have emerged following the global outcry of a massacre in Deir el-Zour yesterday.

The massacre, carried out by Free Syrian Army militants reportedly targeted men, women and children in the Christian village of al-Duwayr/Douar close to the city of Homs and the border with Lebanon. The incident received little media attention, having occurred at the same time as thousands of Syrian troops converged on the insurgent-occupied town of al-Qusayr.

According to sources, around 350 heavily armed militants entered the village, broke into homes and assembled residents in the main square of the village where they were executed. The final death toll is not known but photos show severe damage to property in the village.

Syrian army sources said that they reached the village after the massacre, resulting in clashes with militants. Sources also reported that Turkish and Chechen extremists were among the perpetrators. Chechen militants are known to have kidnapped two Christian bishops in Aleppo earlier this year. The following images show al-Duwayr/Douar village after the massacre:

Conditions for ethnic and religious minorities have been made increasingly worse as Free Syrian Army affiliated organisations including Jabhat al-Nusra increase ethnic and sectarian cleansing across Syria. Kidnappings, executions and assassinations are common.

Late last month, around the time of the massacre in Homs, a fifteen year old girl was kidnapped by militants in Damascus, who demanded $100,000 for her release. Miryam Jbeil, a niece Damascus-based Catholic priest Nader Jbeil, was released after a number of days in captivity.

In the aftermath of the Syrian army assault on al-Qusayr, the church was discovered to have been desecrated by Free Syrian Army militants.... [more photos here]

>>he’s allowing the moral compass of the Russian
>>Orthodox Church to prevail

The Oprichnina (secret police - and historical predecessor to the KGB) was an instrument of religiously sanctioned terror.

The ROC is just another FALLIBLE and UNINSPIRED human religious concoction that became, like all human religious concoctions, an object of idolatrous worship in defiance of our Creator.

I expect the Russian Sheeple-herders are quite aware of the consequential order of precedence articulated in Romans 1:25++

“Because of this, God gave them over”

That’s why they try to keep the Eunuch termites from infesting their occult mound.

So what’s with John McCain and Lindsey Graham? Why are they SO interested/excited to get our military or our resources involved in all these conflicts? It makes no sense. Is it the committees they are on? Is it ties to big war producers, what is it? It is becoming increasingly weird with each new conflict we involve ourselves in.

The only thing I find unsettling about that is the anti-semitism in that body.

Yeah, lots of that going around. Try to get a Lutheran “pastor” to explain how this...

...became a supporting pillar in Mein Kampf.

Our little barry bastard boy is now full of hope, that the enemies of his beloved is slime are being dispatched on his watch. We should have known when he set the standard of ‘homeland security’ to stamp bible clingers as enemies of his state. How long will we the no longer sovereign people wink at the blatant identifying of Christians and conservatives as the enemies of little barry bastard boy’s regime? Truly, the devil’s own now runs America.

I’m wondering if it is our Christian duty to not pay taxes to support our evil government. Render unto Caesar, I know. Is Caesar supposed to be arming Islamists to kill innocent fellow Christians all over the globe?

What all innocents has Bashar Assad killed? Somebody remind me of what is so bad that we have to arm those who massacre innocent Christians who were minding their own business, who eat the hearts of those they kill, and who are admitted allies of Al Qaeda which desires to wipe out the US? What could be worse than these Islamist animals that the US government is arming?

Seems like this regime chooses to arm the Islamist murderers and the drug cartels who emulate the murderous atrocities of those Islamist thugs. Seems like this regime gets a real hard-on for people like that, just can’t resist them...

Valerie Jarrett is a pig-faced buffoon who should be called the Witch Hydra. There’s not an Islamist murderer she hasn’t spread her legs for, with US taxpayer money. Take THAT, stupido NSA!!

A person who wants to butcher a document can use any document as a supporting pillar. Hitler created his own Bible and used it as a supporting pillar. Nancy Pelosi thinks that late-term abortion is “sacred ground” - she who supposedly believes both the Bible and the Constitution.

I haven’t read all of “On the Jews and their Lies” by Martin Luther - just looked at the first part - but from what I could see, this was a refutation of the arguments set forth by Jews at that time, ridiculing the Christian faith. Stuff like calling Jesus’ mother a whore who slept with a soldier, etc. You may not have read some of the stuff that was in the Jewish writings, but they were not very “nice”. That doesn’t mean that we hate Jews, kill them, or anything else - just that we disagree. And that seems to be what Luther was doing in that book: disagreeing.

Sort of like Robert Spencer disagrees with the Muslims who say that infidels must die. Is that Islamophobia? Luther was refuting the teachings of the Jews of his day just as Robert Spencer is refuting the teachings of the Muslims of his day. If refutation of the beliefs of Muslims or Jews is anti-Muslim or anti-semitic, then anybody who has something they believe to be really true (and everything else is false) is as bad as Hitler. Is that really what you mean to say? Because that is the basis for the “hate-crimes” mentality - which is being used in Canada, for instance, as a basis to say that parts of the Old Testament can’t be read or preached in churches. The argument is that even just thinking that you are right and somebody else is wrong... is a crime. Is that really where you want to go with all this?

The first point he made flies in the face of racism and sexism, as he rebukes those (including both the Jews and the ancient philosophers) who boasted that they were not born an animal, a woman, or a Gentile/Greek, and who say that the Lord should answer their prayers because of their own worth compared to other people. Insert the word “non-Aryan” for “Gentile/Greek” and you’ve got a refutation of Adolph Hitler. Luther’s anger at those who boast of being born a man rather than a woman also rebukes Muslim doctrine.

I don’t have to believe the same doctrines as another person in order to support their inalienable rights. My reason to support Israel is not because I agree with everything they would say against me. It is because Israel as a nation, in keeping with the worldview of Judaism, values human life and all the other sacred gifts that are protected in the Ten Commandments. Unfortunately, a lot of ethnic Jews are atheist and I think that has a lot to do with the political leanings that line up against the actual orthodox Jewish teachings. Every religion has those who are In-Name-Only. It’s just a fact of life.

Those who oppose the sanctity of life and the other teachings of the Ten Commandments would like to see Jews and Christians divided against each other. I have no interest in being divided from Jews. Obama and his allies hate the Judeo-Christian worldview, because it recognizes the sanctity of human life, even for those of different beliefs. That’s why you get Lutherans, Catholics, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, and atheists all speaking out in defense of religious liberty when the government tries to force Catholics to pay for birth control and abortion.

My husband is an LCMS pastor and neither he, nor I, nor our children, nor anybody I know in any of the churches he’s served have been racist against Jews, which is what “anti-semitism” traditionally means - being against ethnic Jews, rather than against the teachings of current Judaism. My sister-in-law is active in a Messianic Jewish fellowship.

I’m not sure what you’re trying to do with the scare quotes around “pastor”, and why you’re trying to raise a beef with Lutherans. I can assure you that the little white-haired ladies in our churches are not burning crosses on anybody’s front lawn or flying swastikas.

we're always reading about Christians getting massacred. In this incident they were rounded up into the square and killed. Why did they allow themselves to be herded together? Why the hell don't they fight back? Why didn't these "militants" entering the village get a greeting of hot lead?

Whether is Egypt, Syria, Libya, the Christians always get massacred. They need to start fighting back or they'll be exterminated.

Of course the media ignores it. They forgot to use chemical weapons.

This is my take on the situation. McCain and Graham are panicking because the oligarchy controlling the US is collapsing. That is why the big push for gun control and immigration reform. They are one and the same. Intended to keep the oligarchy in power. They want war because they can use it to pacify the revolting citizens.

Dear US Oligarchy,

You are done. You are finished. You are dead and you do not even know it. The Chinese and the world now have all of you compromised thanks to your totalitarian data base. You are all now a risk to national security. Good bye and good riddance.

Why are we aiding Al Queda terrorists in Syria?

We don’t need any more mangled American wounded warriors.

Esp. not from this particular battlefield.
