Cheering for Régime Change in Syria? You Support the Murder of Christians

____________________________________

Another Easter is upon us… Western governments still support the extermination of Christians in Syria. Easter is the holiest day in the Christian calendar. For Christians, Easter is the ultimate victory of God over Satan, a permanent victory, a kind of cosmic checkmate. However, for Christians in Syria, this Easter has a special meaning… victory over those who have sought, with Western backing, to destroy them. “Responsible” media outlets never speak of it, but anyone rooting for régime change in Syria also supports the murder of Christians. Syria is a secular state; it’s fought terrorists and jihadists for the last six years. If Assad goes, Syria’s Christians will cease to exist. On Friday, Haaretz carried an op-ed about what “régime change” would mean for Christians in Syria (but because it’s Haaretz, it also insisted that rooting for Iran, which fights ISIS, is just as bad as cheering for Christian genocide. Don’t be confused… it’s Haaretz). Some excerpts:

Jews in Israel support the murder of Coptic Christians and Christians in the Middle East in general… not just the killings that occurred in Egypt last Sunday. Anyone attacking Syrian President Bashar al-Assad encourages the murder of Christians in the Middle East and the entire world. It should be clear to all that the atrocities committed by ISIS against the Yazidis and any other non-Sunni Muslim minority it can get its murderous hands on will only be a prologue compared to what we should expect if Assad falls… which I hope never happens.

The support for Saudi Arabia and the war against Assad can have only one interpretation… support for terror. All the minorities that were massacred or fled Syria had lived in peace and security under the Assad régime. In Assad’s Syria, there’s no religious coercion and minorities weren’t required to pay a jizya tax because they weren’t Sunni Muslims. The ethnic and religious minorities enjoyed total freedom of worship, and churches and non-Muslim houses of prayer flourished.

Yet, Israel supports this terrorism. It is a satellite of the evil empire, the USA. Whoever supports Saudi Arabia supports the murder of Coptic Christians. Whoever defends Qatar has their hands covered in the blood of Coptic worshippers. Whoever fights Assad wants to exterminate the Christians from the Middle East.

Speaking about it is verboten, but the sad reality is that the USA and its western and Sunni poodles funded the extermination of Christians in the Middle East for a very long time. In December 2015, Dr William Wedin wrote about the extermination of Syrian Christians at the hands of Western-backed “moderate” rebels and ISIS. With Easter upon us, we’d like to share this article again with our readers. Just replace “Obama” with “Trump”, and you’ll begin to realise the size and scale of the atrocities being committed against Syrian Christians.

******

The massacre of Syrian Christians in Kessab by “moderate” terrorists backed by the Turkish military in 2014 is only one example. Despite the truly heroic efforts of a re-Christianised Russia to protect them, “moderate” and “extremist” Muslim terrorists alike continue to kill and even crucify these Syrian Christians. Yet, no one in the West is talking about it. NO ONE! Not Obama, not the Republicans, not the “liberal” media, not Fox News and no one in public life… not even Donald Trump. It’s downright criminal! Everyone in Washington would like the American people to think that Syria is a Muslim nation and that everyone there is a Muslim. There are no Christians in Syria to save. Therefore, the USA and NATO can do what they please to the Muslims who remain. They’re untermenschen, after all. It’s a lie! A damned lie! The neocons might call it a “noble lie”. Nevertheless, it’s a lie nonetheless.

Christians Safe Under Assad

Before the Arab Spring opened the door to Muslim terrorists… fuelled by Saudi money and American weaponsmillions of Syrian Christians lived in peace and safety with their Muslim neighbours since Biblical times.  Indeed, large Syrian cities, such as Antioch, were amongst the first Christian communities named in the New Testament. Perhaps, it took a ruthless tyrant to keep the peace at times. Certainly, Assad is a ruthless one  (witness his torturing al-Qaeda “suspects” for George Bush). However, at least in Syria, there was a stable peace between Christians and Muslims under Assad’s secular government, as shown by the fact that Syria boasted no less than 1.8 million Christians before the Arab Spring began in 2011. Yes, Christians lived in peace and safety.

This is a matter of historical fact. It’s rooted in a once-powerful movement, called Arab nationalism, which once included the likes of Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt. As the name applies, the unifying concept behind this nationalist movement that emerged in many Middle East countries after World War II was that all religious groups should be protected and respected (as taught by the Koran) so that people of all faiths would come to see themselves as proud and equal members of their shared motherland… be they Syrians or Egyptians. For only then… as one united nation… could they throw off colonial rule. In short, the answer Arab nationalism offered to the colonial powers’ dictum of “divide and conquer” was… unite and fight back!

The Western Powers were dead opposed. Forget the will of the people! Even the will of the American people. Our rulers “knew better” than we did what we really wanted. That was cheap oil… whatever the cost in “lesser” people’s lives. Only Arab nationalism stood in the way. Therefore, the Western powers had to crush it. Crush it they did… starting with Iran. Talk about what goes around comes around! When Mohammad Mosaddegh became Iran’s first freely elected Prime Minister in 1951 (in a wave of Persian nationalism), he became Time’s “Man of the Year” that year. However, this triumph of democracy didn’t last very long. When Mosaddegh moved to nationalise British Petroleum’s assets in Iran to use Iran’s own oil to lift her people out of poverty, the USA instantly ordered the CIA to stage a coup, called Operation Ajax, that ended the secular Republic of Iran… restoring the hated Shah, with his dreaded secret police, once more to power. So what if the US-backed Shah tortured, jailed, and murdered tens of thousands of freedom-loving Iranians to maintain his nearly 50-year rule? BP got its oil fields back… the Iranian people got oppression. That’s been the pattern of American foreign policy ever since. NEVER have we replaced a “bad” régime with a functioning democracy… although they always tell the American people that’s our goal going in. We’re selflessly “spreading democracy” to nations with… well… mineral wealth (like Afghanistan with its vast rare earth deposits).

Assad in the Crosshairs

Now, Assad is in the crosshairs. Not because he’s a brutal dictator… he is… but what of that? Our Presidents kiss Saudi monarchs, after all… although the Saudis behead and crucify adults and even children every year by the score. Moreover, our servile media doesn’t condemn those atrocities. No, “Assad must go” because he’s the last Arab Nationalist still standing. He wants the benefits of Syrian oil given to the Syrian people. So, off with his head! Yes, it’s true that when the Arab Spring reached Syria, a few hundred secular Syrians took to the streets calling for free elections, just as the Russians call for free elections in Syria now. The Western media doesn’t report it, but it’s a fact. The Russians don’t say that Assad must remain President forever. They say, “Let the Syrian people decide who’ll be their next President in a free fair election that includes Assad”. However, honest polls show that Assad would win such an election. So the White House and Wall Street say, “No!” That’s giving the Syrian people too much freedom! Assad must NOT be on the ballot. Otherwise, all that Syrian oil might wind up in the hands of… Syrians!

Meanwhile, since terrorists swept the secularists aside, Christian Syrians… long protected by Assad… now “disappear” by the millions… by the millions! Of the 1.8 million Christians that lived peacefully under Assad before the Arab Spring, only 200-400,000 Christians still live in intact communities in Syria today. The rest either died or fled… we know not where. Yet, the servile Western media is silent about these Christians. Until the deeply Christian Putin began attacking the terrorists in earnest, the West was content to play at attacking those terrorists NOT attacking Assad, as shown by the fact that of the 59,015 sorties flown against “extreme” terrorists, only 8,573 actually dropped any bombs or missiles. On the other hand, terrorists who do attack Assad get advanced weapons and training from the USA… even if those terrorists are al-Qaeda or allied with al-Qaeda… the very terrorists who brought us 9/11.

However, what does the One Percent care if Obama teams up with disguised forms of al-Qaeda so long as they oust Assad? Big Oil gets to build its “dream” pipeline from the stolen oilfields of Syria and Iraq through Turkey to Europe… cutting out “evil” Russia. Once Syria is “done”, the CIA can use these same Islamists to start biting off chunks of Southern (Muslim) Russia even if it means World War III followed by nuclear winter and the end of the American people. Of course, the White House maintains that only ISIS (which the Saudis and the USA jointly created) wants to chop off Christian heads, whereas those who pal around with al-Qaeda are “moderates” now. Although they also chop off heads, they do so “moderately”. So, what do Syrian Christians have to fear from them? A lot… if the Syrian Christians of Kessab are any example, but who’s heard of them? The Western mainstream media don’t report such war crimes.

A Call to Action to Protect Syrian Christians  

Therefore, it’s time we put Obama’s own Christianity to the test. Make him stop the genocide of Syrian Christians now! Although as many as 1.6 million Syrian Christians may already be dead, that would still leave 200,000 Syrian Christians left alive that he could save today. What’s stopping him? If Obama wants to use his “moderate” terrorists to remove Assad, let him first demand that these terrorists take a religiously binding vow that they shall always protect the lives and rights of all Syrian Christians. For Syrian Christians do exist, I assure you. However, “moderate” and “extremist” terrorists alike wage genocide against them even now. If they finally oust Assad… except in a free and fair election where Assad is on the ballot… there’d be a total bloodbath of those Christians who still survive. Syria would be worse than Rwanda. The next President… unless he knows of this hidden genocide… will let this crime against humanity go on just as Bill Clinton knowingly let the Rwandan genocide go on… while the servile Western media stood silent. The One Percent didn’t care about 800,000 Tutsis being hacked to death by machetes back then. The One Percent doesn’t care about the 1.6 million Syrian Christians who’ve “disappeared” at the hands of “moderate” and “extremist” terrorists already… like those Syrian Christian villagers of Kessab.

How long will this lethal silence last? As with every genocide, so here, “Silence = Death” for all those Syrian Christians who remain. Yet, you the reader can still play a vital role in forcing Obama to save these Syrian Christians by talking to your family and friends… by speaking to your pastor, priest, or rabbi… by calling your Senators and Congressmen… by writing the Pope (whether you’re Catholic or not)… and by contacting Syrian Churches… like the Syrian Church of Antioch… right here in America. While the servile mainstream media will deny that a Christian genocide is even taking place, we can count on alternative media like Russia Insider to keep us informed about who’s doing what to stop it, but only if we give these sites the political and financial support they need to keep functioning. We must wage the fight to save Syrian Christians on many fronts at once… beginning now and here.
