UPDATE 3*Call Congress!* What is really going on in the Middle East? Ask a Christian in Aleppo, Syria, the AP, and "The Week"

The rebel blockade has lasted three months. Prices for bare necessities have skyrocketed, and a bag of lentils that once cost the Syrian equivalent of $1 now costs between $5 and $10. One church that had been feeding 30,000 Syrians has been forced to cease doing so simply because they don't have the means to anymore. What sort of government will the rebels bring to Syria, if this is the sort of 'government' they are enforcing now?

All points made, and the question asked by Mindy Belz, co-editor of World Magazine. Thinking Christians and other thinkers will have food for thought after reading both her comments and the letter from the Christian physician.

*UPDATE*

Now a senior correspondent for The Week and a baseball newsletter writer, Michael Brendan Dougherty, has updated us on all the ancient Christian communities being destroyed by the 'Arab Spring'.
You can read his piece here:

So just who else is aiding the Rebels in Syria? Inquiring minds may want to know, your answers can be found here:

*Update #3:
Syrian Christians are appealing to fellow believers to assist them in helping Muslims who are fleeing areas in Syria due to the ravages of war.

Here is that poll, Libera_Me

I saw your question in the comments bar on the Israeli poll you are looking for. I found it here on jpost as well as many other links. The poll was in several Israeli newspapers. I dislike it also when statements are made as fact but without the supporting link! ;)

There are supposed to be several others released today per an article I read last night in Haaretz but have not had time to look.

I believe the poster was referring to this one: "The US and European countries should attack Syria, but Israel should not be involved in the assault, two polls in weekend Hebrew newspapers found.

While polls in the US and United Kingdom have found overwhelming opposition to their countries attacking Syria, a Gal Hadash poll published in Israel Hayom found that 66.6 percent of respondents would be in favor of American and European military intervention in Syria.

Only 17% opposed a US/EU strike and 16.4% did not know.
When asked whether they thought such an attack would take place, 72.8% said yes, 15.8% no, and 11.4% did not know.

Asked whether they were concerned that American intervention in Syria would lead to Israeli intervention in the war, 66.8% said yes, 28.7 said no and 4.5% did not know. Regarding what Israeli intervention there would be, 57.4% said limited IDF activity, 14.1% said Syria would attack Israel but the IDF would not respond, 12.9% said there would be all out Middle East war, and 15.6% did not know.

A separate Ma’agar Mohot poll published in Friday’s Ma’ariv found that Israelis overwhelmingly oppose an Israeli strike on Syria. If America does not intervene in Israel’s northeastern neighbor, 77% of respondents who expressed an opinion said Israel should not get involved militarily, 11% said the IDF should, and 12% said they did not know and other answers.

>>> * When divided among how people voted in the January general election, 79% of Likud voters opposed Israeli military intervention in Syria, while 96% of Labor and Meretz voters were opposed."

http://www.jpost.com/National-News/Polls-Israelis-want-US-Eu...

*p.s. Hope this info helps. I know there are many in Israel that do not want a strike and support a much more sane and moderate foreign policy overall but the right wing Likud rules there like our neo-cons do here! Ughhh! I put it in this thread because I there is someone in that conversation I blocked and don't wish to engage.

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

Understood entirely LittleWing (I found a differently worded)

poll at the Peace index that suggest the problem may be in the way the question is phrased, or who is being asked.

The implications of an attack on Syria – The Jewish public in Israel is divided on the question of whether Syria will carry out its threat to attack Israel if the United States and its allies attack Syria in response to the use of chemical weapons by Assad’s forces. A slightly higher rate (46%) takes the Syrian threat seriously, while a slightly lower rate (41.5%) thinks Syria will not carry out its threat to attack Israel.

http://www.peaceindex.org/indexMonthEng.aspx?num=255#.Ui-bzr...

Most think Syria will attack Israel if US and allies go after Syria, so I wonder how skewed the poll is from Ha-eretz.

Yes, two different questions

The question for the jpost article was 'Do the Israelis think US/ EU should strike Syria?'

response: 66.6% YES

The question yours referred to is 'do they think Assad will carry out an attack on Israel if there was a US strike.'

response: " A slightly higher rate (46%) takes the Syrian threat seriously, while a slightly lower rate (41.5%) thinks Syria will not carry out its threat to attack Israel."

RE: videos on the Chemical Weapons Attack

There have been questions raised about the speed in which the 'dead children' videos became published within hours after the attack.

It would seem near impossible to gather all those children, make and send out videos within an hour or so after the attack happened.

Now, due to the videos getting widespread attention some of the parents and villagers have recognized their own children that were kidnapped a week before during the vicious attack on Alawite villages by rebel forces.

This would also explain why there were no grieving parents in those videos and no women. Many of the parents were themselves kidnapped, killed, or separated during the flight from the rebel attacks in the village.

see:
"We are still finding people who were killed in their homes, and bodies left in bushes," said Sheikh Mohammed Reda Hatem, an Alawite religious leader in Latakia. "Until now 150 Alawites from the villages have been kidnapped. There are women and children among them. We have lost all contact with them."

Reminds me of the myths surrounding Jonestown...

"We are still finding people who were killed in their homes, and bodies left in bushes," said Sheikh Mohammed Reda Hatem, an Alawite religious leader in Latakia.

That sounds an awful lot like the MO used at Jonestown, which was a CIA murder op rather than a "Heaven's Gate"-style mass suicide with kool-aid.

http://www.dailypaul.com/267617/jonestown-who-drank-the-kool...

The kool-aid was never drunk; people were murdered. Sounds very similar to what happened in Syria -- people (including children) were kidnapped, and a scene created to make it appear that something other than "mass murder at CIA hands" had happened.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Bump.

For authenticity and reliability.

Here is another wrinkle in the Wars in the Middle East saga. They have all taken place along the 33rd. Parallel North which has significance in the esoteric religion. It is said that blood shed on this parallel conveys power upon the ones shedding the blood. Look at the countries listed as being situated on the 33rd. parallel:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/33rd_parallel_north

The list is ominous to say the least. Even in Japan Nagasaki is on the list and it was the only mainly Christian city in Japan. Truman was a 33rd. Degree Mason. Here is information on the 33rd. Parallel North from Hidden Mysteries Magazine on the Freemasons and the 33rd. Parallel.

http://www.hiddenmysteries.org/themagazine/vol14/articles/ma...

All in all it seems a strange coincidence that most of the leaders of the US are involved in secret societies or fraternities and these wars are taking place along the 33rd. Parallel North.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Thank you for the 'wrinkle in time',

seems like the 33 plays into many coincidences. I have added a link to Downsize DC, since they make it so easy to contact your Congressmen (and women, too).

You're welcome.

I discovered some time ago that at the top of the hierarchy seeking to control the world and everyone in it are the esotericists in symbiosis with the spiritual powers and principalities.

These are the people that the apostle John calls the antichrists and the spirit of antichrist. He also says that we know this is the last hour because they are here. He said that two thousand years ago so they have been working that long to build their empire in secret.

I only made the connection recently to the gnostics that the apostles opposed but they are indeed the same as the antichrists that John mentions since they deny that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh. Gnostics hold that matter is evil and spirit is good so they cannot accept that the Son of God would take a human form. Their belief also conflicts with the teaching of the Lord Jesus Himself and apostolic teaching of the new birth from above i.e. the spiritual realm, into the New Creation, the Kingdom of Heaven, which is a reconciliation of the spiritual with the physical in one Man, the Mediator, Christ Jesus and through Him with all those who believe in Him and follow Him.

These antichrists or esotericists are the powers at present seeking to rule the world and everyone in it. As I said they act in symbiosis with the spiritual principalities and powers against which we Christians are told we wrestle in the realm of the Spirit. It is because we have been lax in doing so that they have gained so much control in all fields: political, juridical, financial and religious. The primary locus of their control is the body of doctrines of the Church and the related philosophies and ideologies in the secular realm.

It is very difficult for Christians to accept that their churches have been infiltrated by the enemy but this was always going to happen since it is prophesied explicitly in scriptures. It is not a limited infiltration either, it is widespread. Whether a church is Roman Catholic or Protestant, evangelical or fundamentalist, Lutheran, Methodist , Presbyterian or Episcopalian the same sad tale can be told.

As it says in Revelation 2:13, the Church is where satan's throne is.

The good news is that those who are called "overcomers" or "victors" in the Revelation of Jesus Christ have come out of the churches. They have been and are now defeating the spiritual principalities and powers in spiritual warfare and have been doing so for the past twenty years. This is why Babylon is falling and the esoteric powers can do nothing about it. They have been and are being defeated by the Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of the armies of Heaven, in the heavens of God's Spirit and the victory of the Son and sons of God is certain.

There was never any possibility that the antichrists would be allowed to set up their counterfeit World Kingdom. That has always been a foregone conclusion. That it is taught by the churches that they do, even for a short time, is another deception of the enemy that is completely opposed to the clear testimony of scripture. The powers against which we fight will always fall short of the glory of God.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

A very compelling letter

Thank you for sharing, I read all 3 pages of his account. It is hard to read and see the horrific reality that these people endure due to this US backed civil war (yet another US-backed Regime Change)..leaving chaos, death and destruction in it's wake. I pray they continue to find the strength to endure.

from the Physicians letter:

"Following the retaking of al-Qusayr (a strategic region in the centre of Syria, southwest of Homs and near the border with Lebanon) by the Syrian army and the defeat of the rebels there, the leaders of the Western world declared that the fall of al-Qusayr showed that the balance of power had shifted to the government side and that it was necessary for them to arm the rebels in order to re-establish equilibrium! What a way of thinking!! They simply want to re-establish equilibrium so that both sides will continue to fight … to the last Syrian? Just imagine the satanic way of thinking! “But as for me, I watch in hope for the Lord, I wait for God my Saviour; my God will hear me. Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise (with my nation). Though I (we) sit in darkness (since no electricity), the Lord will be my (our) light” (Micah 7:7-8; italics are mine)."

* I agree with him that the' Western Agenda' in this civil war displays a 'Satanic way of thinking.' Never underestimate the psychopathic nature of those in power and those that support such evil for power/profit. The US role in this disgusts me. Please see:

What I saw

before the letter, a few days ago, I watched the war, the shelling of buildings by tanks, the Free Syrians and the merchinaries (Jihadists).. and I saw that the Free Syrians were upset with the Christian Churchs because the Churches decided to stand with the government, the Church and it's longevity was more important than the people who needed help. The Jihadists have another reason for attacking Christians.

And I have to say, if I was protesting Obama with people from all over the nation, and heard Obama had opened fired on protesters, and then he cut off the internet, and I was hearing about massequers, and people were leaving Syria, and I went the the Church and they told me, they were siding with Obama.. I would resent it. I understand how the Church believes governments come and go and refuses to get invlved, just stand for the regime, no matter what.. still seeing children and seniors and the siffering and death.. it would get me..

And then I watched a vid about a doctor in Syria.. let's see if I can find it.. (hard to sind some of this stuff).. oh look what I found completely different http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=62Bi3RPz_2E

Your theory about Assad recruiting the Islamists is unsupported

As I have pointed out to you on several occasions the Assad government has always protected the religious minorities and sought successfully to maintain sectarian peace. The West, including Israel, has deliberately undermined Assad over the years and fostered sectarian strife in the well known strategy of divide and conquer.

Making Assad out to be a bloodthirsty dictator has always been part of this strategy just as they demonised Saddam Hussein, the Taliban, Mubarak and Qadhafe amongst others, in order to sway public opinion to get behind their aggressive wars to effect regime change and put their puppets in power. You surely must realise by now that Bush and Obama have been even more bloodthirsty dictators than any of the above and have killed millions of innocents in other nations as well as their own citizens.

You refuse to accept this version of events for reasons that are linked I believe to your love for Israel. Here is an excerpt from the AP article in the OP that supports what I have been saying which is backed up by many other reports:

"The attack highlights fears among Syrian Christians that the alternative to Assad's regime - which is made up mostly of Alawites, followers of an offshoot of Shiite Islam - would not tolerate minority religions.

Such concerns have helped Assad retain the support of large chunks of Syria's minority communities, including Christians, Alawites, Druze and ethnic Kurds. Most of the rebels and their supporters are Sunni Muslims."

The last sentence is something I have meant to tell you but now you know and must realise that no Sunni jihadists would work for Assad who is an Alawite Shia Muslim. You have clearly said on a number of occasions that Assad has brought the jihadists into Syria to kill the Christians. These are the kinds of opinions that are completely untenable and have no foundation in any reports from any source other than yourself.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Whi is in charge of Syria's borders?

Assad is in charge of Syria's borders, which are pourous for Jihadists hat help him achieve his cgoal of wiping Syria off the map himself.

What has Israel done to indermine Assad? Showed Syrians how AWESOME Israel is?

Assad is a bloodthirsty dictator, and so were the others you mentioned, and I do not agree that Bush, Obama are bloodthirsty dictators at all by comparison to Assad, Hussein, Mubarak, Qadhafe and the Taliban. And I'm grateful for that.

I didn't say Assad brought in Jihadists.. I am saying, he has kept his borders opened, allowing Jihadists in.. he may have a promise to the Church, and personally resent it. I don't know.

Here is the post I was referring to:

Here is a comment, verbatim, you made in another forum. I have left in any typos or spelling errors:

"[The Jihadists oppse secular government]

That's the only reason they oppose Assad.. by getting rid of the seculaists, it makes it easy for Assad to claim Syria for Islam.

Assad is a Islam first silver spoon bred punk, who slammed Syria silly bringing on a NWO with deasth to protesters.. he shut down communications and began slaughtering those who wanted a secular society.. he's allowed the Jihadist to come in and kill the rebels and the Christians.. while he tagets them with tanks.

The Russian/ Chinese COMMUNIST and ISSLAMIC state dominate the UN, not the US and Israel, and are globalists.. how much stuff from China do you need to have to see that?

Many people in the US opposed NAFTA and the many UN trade agreements that have been to our detriment.. this is what is happening is Syria, why the rebellion, that has a Jihad happening that Americans and Israel are being blamed. As usual.

Israel does not target nations.. it defends Israel.

I know what you are talking about, I don't agree with you. To me, that is globalist propeganda. Do you know how many resolutions are against Israel? I think you need to look up hpw popular Israel is in the UN and why.

Israel is now a fortress, because the world HATES JEWS and proves it as often as possible. The Jews are brilliant, are moving the world and humanity forward respecting life, as the world becomes a death cult."

It is this incoherent nonsense that I object to. When I say this it is not to insult you personally but to describe accurately the comment you have made. I do not mind debating any issue with anyone but to have a reasonable debate we must at least make an effort to establish our facts and sources and argue from these premises. I have found this to be impossible with you since you appear to derive unwarranted conclusions from disconnected sources that do not even support your beliefs.

My conclusion from these observations is that your ability to clearly comprehend ideas and facts and to reason from them to credible conclusions may be affected by your dyslexia. Ideas are after all made up from language and you have a condition that affects your ability to read coherently. Therefore it seems to me that this may affect your ability to think coherently. This will not be obvious to you and you will no doubt see others' presentations as being confused rather than your own.

I hope you take this to heart.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)

Thank you

I'll take it to heart and stand by what I said, appreciate you reposting it for me... reminds me of over a decade ago.. there were several posters, long before Daily Paul, who I tried to read and they were incoherent.. Michael Nystrom made a post refering to my posts as "word salad", or maybe he said, "wurd salad", but I also took that to heart, and it reminded me of those old posts (hadn't thought of them in years; One of them had been all about 911.. before 911. It just didn't make any sense back in 96).

I'm not the best writer, never have been, and there's a lot of info to try to compress in a few words, plus, I'm always on call being animals need things and I have chores, so I don't always get to focus and concentrate on the subjects I'm trying to materialize in words.

Thank you for your time and kindness.

Spiked ammo... what's your

Spiked ammo... what's your point of posting that?

Are you claiming to know who spiked the ammo?

Even if you did know, what would be the point in this post?

I'm not sure, but this seems to be the direct link to the link provided in the OP through Drudge...
http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories/M/ML_SYRIA?SITE=AP&SECT...

It seems relevant here.

"Free Syrians and the merchinaries (Jihadists).. ...were upset with the Christian Churchs because the Churches decided to stand with the government" -Granger

What does it mean, really, that the "Churches decided to stand with the government"?

About ten years ago I was attending a church meeting after a Sunday service. The congregation was attempting to decide whether or not to place a sign on their lawn indicating to the public that the congregation was protesting against US military intervention in Iraq.

Would the lack of such a sign on a church's lawn imply that the church supported US military intervention in Iraq?

Interest

I posted it because I came across it and found it interesting.. no other point.. many times I post things that I find when I'm searching for a particular post.. I find really interesting things, like this, which no one has mentioned.. and the article talks about the US using spiked ammo in the past.. so is it incriminating the US, or was this adopted by Assad, or Russia..? I don't know.

What my sentance means that you quoted:

What I'm saying here is that people and Churches do all linds of things to survive when war hits.. it's one reason there is so much debate over the Catholic Church and what Pope Pius XI (?) how much he sided with the Nazis until he didn't and is given credit for ending the war. Did the Church collaborate to a point to sustain?

Here in CA, Catholic Churches were built by the Portugese, Spanish, Russians hundreds of years before CA 1850.. Because the Catholic Church keeps records, some families in CA morphed, from Mexican to Californian when the war ended, and they have lived in CA, continuously, long before the pioneers crossed Donner Pass. The Church watched the rounding up of Native Americans, where they were put on military camps/forts and never stopped the killing, just went on it's business as usual.. governments come and go while the Church remains. So during war, it must be very hard for Christians who love freedom, to accept enslavement from a government that has lost control, with no help for their children, or for them, from the Church..

It's a very dirty war, and Assad has no control.. he's destroying Syria.. and, while I don't agree with Obama on anything it seems, I do agree with him on the stand for the Free Syria Army, because to me, protesting Assad should not lead to violence against the people.. and he had no control before he started shooting.. did you see the size of the protests against him? We wish we had protests like that.. actually, I don't wish that.. but the protests in Syria were miles long in many diresctions..

What are conditions now compared to pre war in

Iraq and Libya. Looks to me that the economies have been destroyed and people in those countries live desperately. Violence is an everyday occurrence and the middle class has been destroyed.

Yes, Saddam Hussein and Moammar Kadafi were dictators, and yes they both brought progress to their countries along with political repression. I frankly was shocked to see pictures coming Libya during their overthrow and how modern the country looked. But both made the mistake of bucking the US and the petrodollar, and Obama apparently has an affinity for radical Muslims (or maybe Obama is just a murderer and a complete incompetent).

Assad is not saint, but compared to the radical thugs who seek to overthrow him, I think anyone in his right mind would prefer the status quo. Look at the Christian villages that the rebels have massacred, villages that were not harmed by Assad.

I think we have the modern day equivalent of Adolph Hitler in the White House, one who expressly desires to commit acts of international aggression under the category of war crimes. I think he has already demonstrated himself to be criminal, by sending support to the rebels, and by just planning such attacks.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Priming the pump once! Things are worse than we thought in Syria

So I am bumping my own post in the hope that someone will care to read it and weep! (Please forgive me, Michael and Moderators)
