Andrei Arbashe, a young Syrian Christian, had just gotten married and his wife was about to give birth. He had his life ahead of him. But thanks to the US/Saudi/Qatari/Israeli-supported rebels that was not to be. Instead, as the Australian reports today, he was beheaded by Obama and Hillary's rebels, cut into pieces, and fed to the dogs.
His "crime" was nothing more than his being a Christian whose brother was overheard complaining of the brutality of the rebels.
As Agnes-Mariam de la Croix, mother superior of the Monastery of St James in Homs, points out in the article, again and again it is clear that the intent of the US-supported rebels is to target for genocide the Christian community in Syria -- a Christian community that had been living side by side with Muslims in Syria for centuries.
As the Australian article continues:
Some 300,000 have been displaced by the conflict. The better off have fled abroad but many more were driven from their homes at gunpoint, said the nun: 80,000 were forced out of the Homs region alone, she maintained.
One graphic example of the rebels' strategy, she said, was their attack on the northern town of Ras al-Ayn on the Turkish border last month. They began it by entering the Christian quarter, telling people to leave and looting their houses.
"More than 200 families were driven out in the night," she said. "Some of the refugees were abducted and their families had to pay ransom."
The rebels are also schooling the children in the arts of beheading bound prisoners whose crime is loyalty to the Syrian government.
One may speculate that in distancing itself from the openly terrorist al-Nusra fighting group in Syria, the US was seeking a scapegoat to blame for horrific attacks like that visited upon Mr. Arbashe above. It is convenient as more and more rebel atrocities are noticed even by the mendacious Western media to have a group "outside the pale" to blame -- so as to preserve the fiction that there are only a few bad apples among the otherwise noble rebels. However the lie was put to this charade when immediately after the US decided to place al-Nusra on its terrorist list the head of the US-selected "democratic" Syrian National Coalition, Sheik Moaz al Khatib, demanded that the US rescind this determination.
Interestingly, Sheik Khatib, hand-picked by Hillary Clinton to be the Syrian Ahmed Chalabi is, like the original Chalabi, not in Syria and has not lived in Syria for some time. One wonders why if he is so popular as the political head of the rebel movement, he does not simply return to Syria. The answer, of course, should be obvious: no one wants to have their government selected for them by an outside power -- particularly one that is actively engaged in supporting the kind of rebels who behead Christians and feed them to the dogs.
Will American Christians begin to notice that, as the Telegraph puts it, "Christianity [is] 'close to extinction' in Middle East"?
