Here is information you won’t see on your TV screen or mainstream newspaper in the United States: Conservative Party Member of British Parliament Mark Field writes in the Independent today that “rent-a-mob jihadis are tormenting a benighted Christian minority in Bashar al-Assad’s Syria.”
“…for the two million plus Syrian followers of Christ, whose lineage goes back 2000 years to St Paul’s proselytising in the first century AD, these are especially desperate times. Ethnic cleansing is an ugly phrase, but that’s just what is going on right now for Christians in Syria. The unspeakable truth now is that the sizeable Christian communities in war-torn Syria are at greater threat of ethnic cleansing from their ancestral homes than has been the case for generations — often at the hands of the self-styled freedom fighters so feted by the Western press.”
Field notes that after the US invasion of Iraq, some 300,000 Christians fled that “liberated” country for Syria — one of the few places in the Middle East where Christians could feel safe and go about their lives unmolested. US/Saudi/Qatari/Israeli-supported “freedom fighters” — who as German intelligence finds are as much as 95 percent non-Syrian — are putting an end to that, threatening to completely eradicate a Christian population that goes back to the time of Christ. What do American Christians do? Cheer on the rebels as they kill Christians left and right in Syria because their government tells them they are “freedom fighters.” What a sick joke.
Well-done, Obama, Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Hillary Clinton, etc. This is tolerance, State Department-style.
