Obama: Assad Protected Christians In Syria

Obama met with the delegation in the White House for 35 minutes, during which the patriarchs presented a paper in which they exposed the situation of Christians in the Middle East and the threats and challenges they are facing, due in part to the expansion of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group.

    HomeReports:

    US President Barack Obama surprised his visitors, the delegation of Eastern Christians patriarchs, on Thursday when he told them that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad “protected the Christians in Syria.”

    Obama met with the delegation in the White House for 35 minutes, during which the patriarchs presented a paper in which they exposed the situation of Christians in the Middle East and the threats and challenges they are facing, due in part to the expansion of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militant group.

    Sources told Al-Akhbar that the highlight of the meeting was when Obama said the following phrase: “We know that President Bashar al-Assad protected Christians in Syria.”

    Obama then used the term “the Syrian government” instead of “regime,” which is usually used by the US to describe the government in Syria.

    The confused attendees could not believe what they heard. However, one of the guests addressed Obama and said: “Then you should stop talking about a moderate Syrian opposition.”

    Obama spoke about the planned US airstrikes in Syria, claiming that they will help “facilitate the (Syrian) political process.”

    The US president then reiterated his country’s “support for the Lebanese army,” explaining that the “weaponry the US gave to the Lebanese army is the best response to ISIS in Lebanon.”

    Meanwhile, Republican Texas senator Ted Cruz was booed off stage Wednesday night in Washington when he defended Israel at a gala sponsored by In Defense of Christians, a group whose objective is to focus public attention on the plight of persecuted Middle East Christian groups.

    “Christians have no greater ally than Israel,” Cruz said, drawing a sharp response from the audience who started booing.

    “Those who hate Israel hate America. Those who hate Jews hate Christians,” he continued. At that point, the booing got louder.

    “If you will not stand with Israel and the Jews, then I will not stand with you. Thank you and God bless you,” Cruz said before walking off stage.

    Maronite Patriarch Cardinal Bechara Rai asked the attendees “not to to respond to Cruz and to focus on the conference and its objectives instead of individual statements.”

    The Patriarch of Antioch and All the East and the spiritual leader of the Melkite Greek Catholic Church, Gregory III Lahham, and Lebanon’s ambassador to Washington Antoine Shadid both withdrew from the dinner after Cruz attacked Hezbollah.

    Lahham also refused to participate in a session about the situation of Christians in the Middle East because of its dubious objectives and problematic speakers.

    Lahham found out that US state representative Chris Smith, who was scheduled to give a speech in the session, was planning on condemning Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, something that Lahham regarded as a departure from the conference’s objectives.

        Saudi Arabia and Qatar have driven and funded the war in Syria, they brought in Sunni mercenaries from Saudi/Libya/Chad/Chechnya/Tunis/Morocco etc., and armed them with weapons, initially from Libya, but since with more serious weapons like recoilless field artillery and anti tank weapons from places such as Croatia via Turkish distribution routes. They have funded the violence and are wanting to see the Shia and Christians destroyed in Syria, which the Sunni mercenary outsiders do with a hideous violence that comes from being not part of the Syrian society. The Saudi’s are aiming to gain control with a proxy Sunni government as they want north Syria as a oil pipeline route that would allow them direct access to Europe with a willing Turkish partner, who also want a chunk of north Syria. The Saudis, Qataris and Turkish leaders should all face facilitating and responsibility for mass ethnic murder charges in the Hague and be tried, but it will never happen, as USA supports all these corrupt and violently repressive regimes.

          Palestinian geographer; born at Flosz, Bavaria, Oct. 22, 1804; died at Jerusalem Feb. 5, 1865. When he was seventeen years old he graduated as teacher from the Königliches Schullehrerseminar of Colberg, after which he joined his brother Israel at the University of Würzburg, where for five years he devoted
          himself to the history and geography of the Holy Land, and published a map of Palestine (1829; republished at Vienna, 1831, and Triest, 1832). It was his ardent desire, however, to study in Palestine
          itself the physical history and geography of the Holy Land, where his knowledge of Talmudic sources and early Jewish writers would be of more service. Accordingly he decided to settle in Jerusalem, whither he went in 1833. Schwarz then began a series of journeys and explorations in various parts of Palestine,
          to which he devoted about fifteen years.

          The results of his investigations and researches into the history, geography, geology, fauna, and flora of that country have placed him in the front rank of Palestinian explorers and geographers. HE IS THE GREATEST JEWISH AUTHORITY ON PALESTINIAN MATTERS SINCE ESTORI FARHI (1282-1357), the author of “Kaftor wa-Feraḥ.”

          614-1096 C.E.

          From the Accession of the Mahomedans to that of the Europeans.

          By Rabbi Joseph Schwarz, 1850

          Rabbi Shallum, son of the then Resh Gelutha, in Babel, aka Abu Bachr al Chaliva al Zadik. Abu Bakr, became the first Caliph, and was in fact son of the then Resh Gelutha, in Babel, who perceiving a
          dreadful predicament, sent Rabbi Shallum to Mahomed, and told him to offer his submission, friendship, and services, and endeavour to enter with him into a friendly compact. Mahomed accepted Rabbi Shallum’s proposition with pleasure, conceived a great affection for him, and took his daughter, Aisha, a handsome young child, for wife; he made him also a general in his army, and gave him the name of Abu Bachr al Chaliva al Zadik, literally:

          The father of the maiden, the descendant of the righteous; this means, that of all his wives, who were either widows or divorced women, this one was the only one who had never been married before,
          and then she was the granddaughter of the celebrated chief of the captivity; therefore, the descendant of the righteous. This occurrence induced Mahomed to give up his terrible intention to destroy the Jews in his country, and thus did Rabbi Shallum save his people.

          Arabian Jews created Islam so as to build an army which would destroy the Persian and Roman (Byzantium) Empires!

          “Get behind me satan. You are a stumbling block to me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

          A satan is an adversary – one who is against you.

But I dont see how this article bashes Obama, it makes him look reasonable and makes republicans like Cruz look like maniacs. I don’t believe Obama would say such a thing, when he’s asking Assad to step down again. He gave Iran another year of sanctions just now, which proves the whole incident with the 47 republicans and the white house petition is just a show. Obama would never bring those 47 Republicans to court. He would probably give them medals like he has been since he got into office.

          Anyways the article paints Obama as a peaceful reasonable man, which he is not. He’s drone bombed 13 countries since he got to office – mostly African countries.

          Jews have ALWAYS hated Prophet Jesus and his followers!

In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves.”

          THE AERIAL BATTLE IN THE TOLEDOT YESHU AND SODOMY IN THE LATE MIDDLE AGES

          Abstract

          Thomas Ebendorfer’s fifteenth-century Latin translation of a Hebrew Toledot Yeshu text is the earliest extant Latin version to include a full narrative from the birth of Jesus to the events following the crucifixion, and predates existing Hebrew versions. After reviewing the place of Ebendorfer’s work in the
          textual tradition of the Toledot, the article examines carefully the work’s account of the aerial battle between Jesus and Judas, in comparison to other versions.

          Ebendorfer includes the detail of sexual intercourse between the two, which is absent in many later versions. In the context of a discussion of Christian and Jewish attitudes toward male–male sexual activity in the Middle Ages, the article concludes that while this detail was in Ebendorfer’s exemplar, he could
          have elaborated on it in a way that indicates this was a particularly Christian concern.

          INTRODUCTION

          Jews had a variety of negative things to say about Jesus in the Middle Ages; Christians were aware of this, and blasphemy could be a pretext for persecution.

          Often the nature of the blasphemy was not recorded, either because to repeat it would have been shocking in itself or because it was more effective simply to hint darkly at the horrible things that were said.

          In the first half of the fifteenth century, however, comes the first documentation of a narrative element that appears in later Hebrew sources, that Jesus was raped by Judas Iscariot.

        The Syrian army and Hezbollah protect and respect Christian of Lebanon and Syria who are being threatened by NATO, Sunni Arab monarchies, and Israel’s mercenaries to change the geo-politics of the region.

      • Kay

        We created ISIS to oust the legitimate government in Syria. Syria is an independent state that does not bow to any western power unlike their Sunni Arab monarchy counterparts. Syria, under the Syrian government, has made the country independent of the Rothschild banking system and a vehement supporter of Palestinian rights. They are the ONLY Arab nation to grant Palestinians full-rights and citizenship. The oppose the Zionist and apartheid state of Israel. Also, Syria signed a billion dollar Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline that will open the gate to a trillion dollar market in Europe. Turkey, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Israel all have their own pipeline dreams yet Syria is in the way of that. But the most important thing why the West, Sunni Arab monarchies, and Israel want Syria out of the way is their alliance with Iran. Iran is the regional superpower and has a Shi’a crescent stretching from North Afghanistan to Lebanon. They want to break that to weaken Iran and Hezbollah. Wake up, people! The whole ‘war on terrorism’ is a sham. Our government created ISIS as a boogeyman to finally invade Syria’s sovereignty to prop up the rebels (aka terrorists) to oust Assad. From Al Qaeda to Taliban, we created them to spread our hegemony across the region.

        The Quran speaks well[citation needed] of the relationship it has with former books (the Torah and the Gospels) and attributes their similarities to their unique origin and saying all of them have been revealed by the one God.[123]

        According to Sahih al-Bukhari, the Quran was recited among Levantines and Iraqis, and discussed by Christians and Jews, before it was standardized.[124] Its language was similar to the Syriac language.[citation needed] The Quran recounts stories of many of the people and events recounted in Jewish and Christian sacred books (Tanakh, Bible) and devotional literature (Apocrypha, Midrash), although it differs in many details. Adam, Enoch, Noah, Eber, Shelah, Abraham, Lot, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Job, Jethro, David, Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, Jonah, Aaron, Moses, Zechariah, John the Baptist and Jesus are mentioned in the Quran as prophets of God (see Prophets of Islam). In fact, Moses is mentioned more in the Quran than any other individual.[125] Jesus is mentioned more often in the Quran than Muhammad, while Mary is mentioned in the Quran more than the New Testament.[126] Muslims believe the common elements or resemblances between the Bible and other Jewish and Christian writings and Islamic dispensations is due to their common divine source,[citation needed] and that the original Christian or Jewish texts were authentic divine revelations given to prophets. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quran

          Bush invasions of Afghan/Iraq IN SERVICE TO Islamist.
          Gave Islamist great recruiting and propaganda material. Did nothing to safeguard USA.

          Bush ideologically disarmed USA by exonerating Islam and declaring Islam a “religion of peace”
          Thus Bush treacherously misled USA and in fact all of W.Civilization.

          Clinton helped Islamist by waging war on Serbia and
          also helped Roman Catholic neo-Ustasha hammer Serbs.

          Obama helped Islamist take Egypt, Libya, Tunisia , Ivory Coast and working on Syria and Iraq.
          Obama/Saudi king armed ISIS using “moderate rebel” Islamist groups as conduit.

          Congressional approval of the “fight ISIS/L” charade/smokescreen will greatly increase the flow of USA weapons to Islamist groups in preparation of the coming invasion of Israel predicted by Ezekiel
          38-39, Zechariah 12-14 and Joel 3.

          Obama and Saudi king no doubt also helped Boko Haram of Nigeria.

        Islam is evil whether it’s Sunni or Shiites or other factions of Islam. You can’t negotiate with them because they will stab you in the back every time. Obama wake up, on no just leave office.

        • Obama is very much awake. It is most of America that is asleep. Obama is getting congress to pass funding for weapons that will be [and Obama knows it] put in the hands of Islamist who will soon use them in invasion of Israel.

        Great blow to those ObamA says he expects to fight ISIL, yet, Obama regime and MSM do not even mention it !!!

        Following happened about 9 Sep 14: ….

        search engine: Entire leadership of ISIS opposition wiped out

      • The Obama “fight ISIS/L” claim is a FARCE. Charade. Smokescreen. USA being duped.

        Obama is just getting congressional funding to send
        MUCH MORE USA weapons to Islamic fighting groups
        through the already used CONDUIT of the so-called “moderate rebels.”

        Obama intends for [and probably will get] USA to supply weapons for attack on Israel.

        Thanks to USA-CIA for the barbaric destruction and massacres in Syria; Some thng that was unheard off in thousands of years. But you will pay the price, at home.

        Once AGAIN our government is stepping on their dicks and making wrong decisions in the Middle East. Sooner or later, the truth comes out and we find out that all the TRILLIONS of DOLLARS we spend on our spy and intelligence agencies is wasted money.
        Assad is a Western educated man heading a democratically elected government. The so-called rebels are not even Syrian. They are tens of thousands of Sunni Muslims from surrounding nations trying to overthrow the Shia regime of Assad. This isn’t a political conflict. It is the continuing battle between Sunni and Shia Muslims AND WE PICKED THE WRONG SIDE AS USUAL.
        Now, the truth is slowly starting to come out that Assad is really the good guy and the rebels are just an invading army trying to overthrow him. That point has been made clear by the recent “agreement” between the “moderate” rebels in Syria and ISIS.
        What that agreement will turn out to be is that when America gives all those military supplies to the moderate rebels, the rebels will turn them over to ISIS.

        • yep,

            You’re absolutely right! If people want to support the Christians, then give to the Christian Groups who are giving supplies and food and water to Christians in the Middle East. Voice of the Martyrs for one, and others. Look them up.

        • Durga

          Yeap, I agree. First of all, the govt. needs a heavy hand to stay in power. US certainly rules with a heavy hand, and so does Israel. In fact, EVERY country over there rules with a heavy hand, and rightfully so. The difference being that a formal govt. is held responsible for their actions one way or another, but a militia can and does whatever it wants with less repercussions. I really didn’t think Assad was that bad, and I did believe him when he said that the Arab Spring was terrorists and not ordinary citizens. Now it is proven to be true. I think Assad and the US should try to repair relations. I think Assad also realizes now that he is not invincible and could benefit greatly from being a US ally. Whatever concessions need to be made, I never really heard a definite defiance from Assad. Rather his official responses to the US’s concerns always seemed to have a reconciliatory tone. Yeah, I get that he is buddy buddy with Iran, but they also do not live in a vacuum and have great foes other than the US, and/ or Israel. Simply stated, the world is changing due to the internet and availability of information. Everyone is equally having to adjust to these unprecedented conditions, and I mean ALL nations and leaders.

THEN, you respond with a remark indicative of a 12 year old instead of a posting a mature comment that would actually add to the conversation. Go back to your video games and leave the grown-ups alone.

        • bob

          So what, it is interesting to see a different perspective now and then, we see Al Jazeera on western TV all the time and that is just the Qatari governments effective news agency projecting their propaganda outside the state. Qatar is also by the way a Sunni repressive dictatorship who are longstanding major sponsors of FSA/ISIS who are the same group of people rebadging themselves.

      • Dennis Swanson

        protecting Christians is a good way to enrage folks like Obama and McCain. they are coming to kill you Assad, goodbye

      • Vicious butterfly

        so are you saying that its the christians that are behind assad and that they are the ones propping him up??

        • history will repeat itself

          the Christians in Syria are a small minority they really have no pull. Assad is very good with the Christians and other minorities in Syria. unlike any where in middle east, being a Christian is very very hard, look at Egypt see how they treat the Christians. so why would they go against asad? the uprising is being sponsored by Saudi and Qatar because they are sunni musslim and assad is alwatie offshoot of shia muslim.
          Assads government is the closest to western democracy you can ever get in the middle east. now you want to replace him with a radical. the Christians and other minorities will be wiped out just like Christians in mosul Iraq.

      • james

        What President Obama failed to inform his guests was that, Free Syrian Army Brigade Commander Bassel Idriss admittedly to collaborating with Jabhat al-Nusra , both an Al Qaeda & ISIL affiliate. Yet Obama asked Congress to give the said Free Syrian Army a half a billion dollars, so they can continue their work of “crucifying” Christians in Syria and Iraq can we can believe in? No thanks!

        • BobC

          Comparing to Obama whom just “failed to inform” Senator McCain went to hug them and helped to arm and finance them. In any reasonable court he will be qualified as financier of terrorists

        there is no moderate terrorists ,syrian rebels are similar to isis extremists.us should not support these people they have no friend and they never keep a favor and they bite the hand that feed them look at history when us help alqaeda back in the 80s and they turn around against us.basically these people hate us and they have plans to destroy the west.will not be good idea to help them,but to fight them.

          bedair you are a lieing piece of dung if muslims wanted to destroy you they could have done it A 1000X ….TRUTH BE TOLD IF YOU WANT TO BE HONEST THE SYRIAN AND LEBANESE CHRISTIANS HAVE BEEN WORKING AGAINST THE MUSLIMS FOR HUNDREDS OF YRS CONSPIRING WITH FRANCE AND THE REST OF EUROPE HELPING BRING DOWN THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE PEOPLE ASSUME THAT THE FACTS ARE BLACK AND WHITE BUT THESE MISTRUSTS GO BACK A LONG TIME AS MUCH AS CHRISTIANS WANT TO ALWAYS BLAME MUSLIMS THE CHRISTIAN POPULATION IS AS MUCH TO BLAME IF YOU GO BACK AND READ YOUR HISTORY FOR HUNDREDS OF YRS MUSLIM EMPIRES LIKE THE OTTOMANS GAVE THERE MUSLIM CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH POPULATIONS A STABILITY AND LIFE STYLE UNMATCHED BY EUROPE AT THOSE TIMES AS NATIONALISM GREW EUROPE USED THE JEWISH AND CHRISTIAN POPULATION TO UNDERMINE AND SOW THE SEEDS IN THE MUSLIM LANDS AND WHAT YOU HAVE IN THE MIDDLE EAST FOR THE LAST 100 YRS IS THE RESULT OF THAT IM NOT BLAMING THE CHRISTIANS ENTIRELY SINCE THE MUSLIMS HAVE AS MUCH TO BLAME AS ANYONE ELSE BUT THE TRUTH IS THE TRUTH.

I am Syrian born and parts of my family is from Iran, Iraq, Russia, and Turkey…and none of my families from those countries has lived under a “Good” Muslim Regime as a Christian. Assad has probably been the best one out there to support minorities, because his Muslim sect is also a minority.
            Christians living in “Stability” under Ottoman Empire? Are you Serious??? Put down that pipe and read about educate yourself on how many Assyrians, Greeks, and Armenians the Ottoman Empire massacred. Please read some history before you start spewing more diarrhea out of your mouth!

            The ottomans raped robbed pillaged and murdered Christians and Jews for 1400 years non-stop. They still do. So don’t blame the victims for retaliation. Many muslim lands were Christian to begin with.

            • Robert Nicodemo

              The Muslim onslaught started since day one, and took the Christians lands by the sword. And we Christians waited for almost 6 centuries before we reacted, and fought back.

      • marogya2100 .

        Senators went to conference to help Israel instead of helping persecuted and displaced Christians whom are sleeping on the streets, public roads, public libraries, churches. They lost all what they owned lands, farms, houses, furniture, livestock. Christians are living on the streets and Cruz is saying you must support Israel. Cruz should be smarter than that I mean “how persecuted people can help Israel if they have nothing. They don’t have a country to decide such thing. This also shows the weak sense of Christian identity which the tea party have. I we as Americans don’t restore a strong sense of identity, our civilization will decline where there will be no return and we will be taken over by others. I hope people go back to their senses and understand what great challenges are coming in our way. Cruz really embarrassed himself and owe these persecuted Christian an apology. Iraqi Christians helped us a lot when our army was in Iraq thus they deserve our help.
