Why Is the U.S. Government Funding Islamic Terrorists Who Are Killing Christians?

Government Policy Leading to Persecution of Christians

Most Americans are Christians.

But few know that the acts of our American government are leading to the persecution of Christians in numerous countries.

According to the Vatican’s official news service – Fides – and many other Christian news sources, the Syrian opposition is targeting Christians.  Priests and bishops on the ground in Syria confirm these reports.

As a Syrian priest writes in the Guardian:

Despite what you might read in much of the western media, Syria is an enlightened, secular society with a deeply spiritual core and the common belief is that Syria is for everybody. A fundamentalist state would destroy the traditions of co-existence and religious harmony that have existed here since the fall of the Ottoman Empire nearly 100 years ago. Syrian independence was won with the blood of all Syrians – Muslim, Christian, Druze, Alawite and Kurdish.

As BBC notes:

Syria has for much of the century had a sizeable Christian minority, making up at least 10% of the population.

***

In recent years Syria has been considered one of the easier Middle Eastern countries for Christians to live in. Power is concentrated in the hands of the Alawite minority – a Shia sect considered heretical by many Muslims – which has clamped down hard on extreme forms of Islam.

Indeed, PBS reports that Syrian Christians are accepting arms from the government to protect themselves against Islamic terrorists.

Similarly, for all his faults, Saddam was a secular ruler who tolerated Christians … but Christians have been persecuted by the post-Saddam regime.

As the Syrian priest notes:

In Iraq, after the fall of Saddam Hussein, western allies admitted that they had no postwar plan and many have paid the price for this – especially the Iraqi minorities; since Saddam fell, hundreds of thousands of Christians as well as Muslims have fled Iraq in the face of sectarian violence and terrorism. Now, people are calling for a regime change in Syria without a clear plan for what should happen next. Should the minorities pay the same price in Syria?

BBC points out:

A rise in attacks on Christians after the US-led invasion in 2003 led to up to half the Christian population leaving, although there are no official statistics.

The Guardian reports:

In 2003 … the number of Chaldeans, the Christian Iraqis, was between 800,000 and 1.4 million. In 2009-2010, it was estimated are between 400,000 and 500,000, and rapidly decreasing. Cairo’s violent repression shows a similar process is under way in Egypt as well, where they still represent roughly 10% of the population.

Similarly, Christians were protected – or at least tolerated – by Libya’s secular leader Gaddaffi.   A Roman Catholic priest told Christian News Service:

Under Gaddafi, we’ve been protected.

And Christianity is an officially-recognized and protected religion in Iran.  BBC points out:

Iran’s traditional Christian populations are recognised in the constitution, guaranteed freedom to worship and allocated seats in the parliament ….

But the U.S. government is supporting – with money, arms, and logistical support– Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorist groups in a number of nations.

The U.S. is:

And the U.S. supports Saudi Arabia as one of our closest allies, even though:

  • Muslims are forbidden to convert to another religion. If one does so and does not recant, they may be executed

Note:  This post focuses on Christians, but a similar analysis could be applied to Jews. For example, Iran – which has the largest Jewish population in the Muslim world – has a constitution which officially protects Jews.

    Some of the MSM are changing their tune on Syria, because it became too clear that Obama’s official scenario of matters in Syria is complete propaganda and lies. BBC and PBS are run by the Master Class. The contradictions and the way the Rulers dictate all sides of the issues became so apparent with Syria. Even Syrians became wise to the tactical psy-op games….much earlier than their Iraqi, Afghan, Egyptian, and Tunisian predecessors to Western “intervention” and war.

    Months ago I watched an interview with Robert Baer who claimed to have had face to face discussions with Syrian oppossition leaders. Baer asked what would be their first act if they toppled the Assad regime. Baer claimed the response was, “kill all Christians.”

    August 4, 2012,
    Dear Webmasters, I am seriously concerned at your use of the term “Islamic Terrorists” in your description of the CRIMINALS the U.S. and Mossad is funding in the Middle East as well as here. I know there are several groups who actions go against the normative rules of Islam, as understood by the majority of Muslims, both Shia and Sunni. It would be the equivalent of referring to the Ku Klux Klan, or the extremist Jewish groups in Israel, as “Christian terrorists” or “Jewish terrorists”. Please do not let yourselves get involved in part of a Psy-Op against Islam–Islam is not the enemy, any more than Judaism of Christianity. Criminals are.
    Sincerely, S. Allan

    • kp

      Agree….

    • Phil

      Try to recount how many Christian militants bombed some Muslims as they are praying in a mosque? For that matter, I ask you if you can find any religion on earth in the past 25 years, where its adherants blow things in the name of said religion? Or even find me any religious group that takes insulting their faith so seriously to the extent of killing themselves and others in many cities around the world?

      There are more Christians then Muslims, and they have more control of media outlets then Muslims, yet as Muslims kill Christians, you never see any solidarity of us Christians against them Muslims. It would disengenous if you would not admit that “us Muslims against the rest of the world” does not exist?

    Sorry, I meant to say “whose actions go against…”.

  • Battlefield Earth

    I have been reading the blog for quite a while and I appreciate the content put on it. I have one little objection on this particular post. Though I hardly doubt the fact that the American government is funding and arming terrorists all over the world there is one loophole in the method employed by the alternative media to disseminate such facts.

    Its has been the mainstream corrupt corporate media’s tactic to label terrorists in any country (particularly the Middle Eastern countries) as “Islamic Terrorists”. Its sad to see persecution and discrimination of muslims by the hands of the corrupt, unethical and irresponsible mainstream media. The Muslims pay the huge price for something they have not done.

    Terminology plays a key role in altering and screwing the mind of the audience (the masses) and manipulating their opinion. Mental poisons are far worse than actual poisons affecting the physical well being of a living being. The same terminology is often also used by the alternative media.
    There is no such thing as an Islamic Terrorist. Someone can either be a Muslim ( a follower of Islam, which propagates peace as its core value and eventual aim) or a terrorist. I dont know who first coined the name “Islamic Terrorists” but it does not seem to matter much now since the masses have become inure and addicted to such propaganda leading them into believing every muslim to be a terrorist.

    The mainstream media surely knows nothing about what Islam preaches. This senseless and psychopathic approach of the NWO proponents to destroy Muslims has also kept the “ALIVE” ones from getting to know the Religion that they all have been forced to perceive the way the mainstream media wants them to perceive.

    Plz refrain from labelling such inhuman terrorist as ” Islamic Terrorists”. and Please study Islam and Muslims and the modern day CIA funded terrorism, and find out the connection between Islam and terrorism. I am sure you people are educated and literate enough to impartially judge the matter.

    • Phil

      you must be living under a rock, if you cannot see that most of the terrorism taking place around the world is done by Muslims. The word Jihad means to fight in the name of Allah. The name of typical Muslims: Nasr l Deen (victory of Islamic religion), Fakhr El Deen (pride of Islamic religion), Seif El Deen (sword of Islamic religion), Seif El Islam (sword of Islam), just to name a few. Name a few Christian or Jewish names that parent give their children that may resemble the Muslim names.

      • McLaughlin

        LOL.Please read more about Islam and their Jihad term.

    i meant to say ,planted into their small minds

  • Battlefield Earth

    Plus
    Try to think of the motives why the USA and western governments are spending so much money and so much time and energy on arming and funding these terrorist groups???

    Here is what I have thought and observed and read :
    1) these Countries are oil rich plus other very important natural reserves of gas, minerals etc.
    2) these energy requirements of the west depend on these countries heavily ( which they get for free ; printing more and more dollars put of the printer cuz they made a deal that oil would only trade for dollar
    3) big number of potential and actual customers corporate giants
    4) access to the rest of the countries – Russia , China, CARs, Africa Pakistan
    5) Iran, Pakistan, China and Russia have nuclear weapons which pose a threat to the world dominance of the USA and its pet allies
    6) they all neighbour Israel – the name says it all
    7) very low levels of consumerism as compared to the west – it actually help many keep away from the consumer debt problem. their national debts are a big game as well
    on and on and on there can be a dozen more…

    SO simply the culprits, the eilitists, the globalists, the banksters. the NWO proponents apply the following tactics::
    1) divide and rule : ignite fight between sects among Muslims ( and btw Islam prohibits sects) these sects were created by British colonialists just a century ago..before that only sunnis and shias existed
    2) spread violence, depression, fear and hatred into the countries to disrupt social , economic and political systems
    3) lead 2 or 3 of them to war then SELL TO THEM THE WEAPONS ( one of the biggest revenue generating businesses today)
    4) introduce western ideas which usually contradict Islamic beliefs and cause further conflicts between the people and the CIA installed governments who are no more than pets of the elite.
    5) plunge them into debt — deeper and deeper – too bad USA and Europe cant get out of their own debt problems
    6) promote and fund sectarian violence using the political parties in these countries which also depend on outside sources for funding
    7) set up a disturbing environment so that no investments come in , more jobs are lost and the unemployed become fresh recruits for insurgent agencies
    on and on and on….

    havent you all noticed :: check the sequence ( with Media in context) : Afghanistan then Iraq then Egypt then Libya Now Syria . Iran is in the pipeline, then may be Pakistan, Jordan, Turkey etc.

    WHats so special in these countries?? all in the same region…??

    Thank you for your time

  • Battlefield Earth

    My point is : Islam has nothing to do with the problems of these countries

    SO please Stop using the mainstream media terminology : “Islamic Terrorists” — There arent any.

    and please do not make the same mistake the blunt and exaggerating media makes : simultaneously using terrorism and the word “Jihad ” or Islamic terrorist and Jihadi for same things.

    Islam poses no threat to mankind though it does to the globalist, satanist, elitist agendas
    who are just control freaks messing up the world and its long lost peace.

    I do not deem all of you to be influenced by my opinion but I do hope and will appreciate if you think positively and double check every piece of information before passing it onto others.

    • Phil

      Just to inform you. Islam as it is similar to all religions in term of xenophobic views that they are correct, and all others not.

      The difference is after the avalanche of petrodollars past the oil embargo of 1973, Saudi Arabia used its new found wealth to fund radical/militant form of Islam called Wahabi or Salafi. Funding poor ghettoes around the world and emphasizing the militancy of defending Islam, and hate to all the non Muslims have gone for many decades without any organized opposition.

      • Battlefield Earth

        The US government is most active and funding the terrorists in these countries.

        They crushed the German and Japanese industries during World War 2 ( which was funded by the Zionist elites also) to become the global industrial powers and now they want oil and other resources so Middle East is the target ( also some South American countries; oil’s there but no Terrorism in the name of religion so they just assassinate the presidents of those countries)… Think please

        Its correct that Jihad means to fight in the way of Allah but are these so-called Islamists fighting in the way of Allah who become the headlines every day?? It’s the media’s tactic to misquote everything also.

        To fight in the name of Allah is to fight against oppression, invasion, immorality, injustice , sin, and whatever God commands to be done. Well God doesnt ask Muslims to kill anyone on the basis of Religion, Race, Origin or politics. So these groups are fighting for something else. They are paid by the US to fight against US. How ironic? or should I say how obvious…

        Islam preaches no such ideas to kill someone wrongfully. The ideology steers the life and actions of people. So study Islam and Muslims , Not Whats shown on CNN before criticising it without a sensible purpose and knowledge. They themselves are victims of the mainstream media who fall in the trap of indoctrination that Muslims are terrorists and want to kill everyone.

        The centuries old hatred between Christians, Muslims and Jews has to stop. How many wars were fought on the basis of religion ?? 99% of the wars were politically or economically triggered. Modern day warfare (or psychopathic manipulation) is political, economic and evil (its main characteristic) in nature.

        Its time for unity and brother hood . Enough warfare has taken place , its time for peace. So be positive and stand united against the globalist agendas which seek to destroy religion, morality, ethics, values, independence, freedom and justice. Its all divide and rule tactic that has kept all of us busy fighting each other for no good reason. Wake up please.

        PS : Saudi Arabian monarchs are ruled by the US. The political system of Saudi Arabia is not Islamic political system. In fact the Islamic system of government does not exist in any Muslim country (give the modern and indoctrinated Muslims of today the credit).
        The US has befriended S.Arabia for so long for some obvious reasons ( oil etc.) Wait for the day they decide to bomb Saudis. Its not going to happen until the Saudis stop US access to its resources..Wait n watch

          “To fight in the name of Allah is to fight against oppression, invasion, immorality, injustice, sin, and whatever God commands to be done.”

          Well, you have been fed a bunch of lies that are routinely dispensed to the typical foreigners to make their barbaric acts appears like a religous do gooders.

          The Islamists took power in Afghanistan, Somalia, Sudan, and the only evidence of their Jihad is the killing the non-Muslims, and the destruction of their houses of worship.

          In Egypt for Example, the Islamist Parliament first concerns were to make legal cutting baby girls clitoris so that they would never enjoy sexual arousal. This was followed up by allowing men to have sex with their dead wives body. If that does not convince you that they are barbarians, then, I supposed you are a paid apologist for Jihadists?

          • Battlefield Earth

            You have not studied anything about Islam my friend. Your replies give the impression of you being a paid critic of Islam.

            And the stories you quote are stories after all, no truth and unquestionably no connection to Islam.

            Its ironic how everyone can put the entire blame on muslims. The west suffers most devastating moral and economic crisis today, is Islam responsible for that ?? wake up …No religion is responsible for that . The Islamist is a term very well used by critics like you , well what about Islamophobists?? I just coined the word see!

            Study Islam and then criticize it with logical reasoning . Wearing a turban, having a beard and having a muslim name doesnt make anyone a muslim. If for the sake of this argument I accept whatever stories you have mentioned are true, such people practicing such evils are not doing what Islam has asked them to do. Do not judge a book by its cover my friend especially if the cover’s shown on CNN or BBC etc.

            Its sad to see we are still engaged in the arguments and quarrels that the globalists want us to be engaged in..The “keep them busy!” methodology of the elite. Islam has nothing to do with such atrocities that you quote. Study it then judge who is practising it and who is not.

            God knows why Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world, especially the USA, are the so called ‘Islamists’ forcing all these people to become muslims????

            And by the way to fight against propaganda and lies is also Jihad. No need to pick up guns.

            You still have the choice to have your own opinion and religion, thats what Islam also preaches. Research well before you comment the next time my friend I wish you good luck, sincerely.

    The one million dollar question would have been: “Why Is the U.S. Government Funding Israeli Radical Jews Who Are Killing Christians?

    Muslim majority countries like Pakistan, Indonesia, Nigeria, Iran, Iraq, Algeria and many more have Christian presidents, vice-presidents, cabinet ministers, chief justice, law makers and military Generals – while Israeli Jews have been burning copies of Christian Bible and spitting on priests.

    “The very name Jesus was for Jews a symbol of all that is abominable, and this popular tradition still persists. The Gospels are equally detested, and they are not allowed to be quoted, let alone taught, even in modern Israeli Jewish schools,” wrote late professor Israel Shahak.

    In May 2012 – Bob Simon reports the plight of Christians under Jewish Israeli rule at CBS News 60 MINUTES (watch video below). Israeli ambassador in Washington, Jewish supremacist Michael Oren, tried to bully CBS to kill the 12-minutes segment related to religious bigotry and social discrimination of native Palestinian Christian forcing them to leave Israel.

    • Phil

      The problem as I see it is there are three religions that started in that god forsaken Middle East, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. All three of them have in their texts something that say we are right and everybody else is wrong. The only difference is recently (in the past fifty years or so), two of the three religions have organized along side the narrative of US AGAINST THEM (Islam & Judaism). As I see it, every effort to organize the Christians has either been made fun, usurped, or given a bad label.

      It is not possible to go on one generation, after the other without having solidarity of Christians, and expect it to not get overrun by the two well funded well organized opponents.

  • ceti

    It is worth mentioning that Iraq’s foreign minister under Saddam Hussein was Tariq Aziz, a Christian. The bomb that recently killed top Syrian officials, took the life of Dawoud Rajha, the defense minister who was also a Christian.

    US foreign policy has always been about destroying secular nationalist forces in the Arab world on behalf of Israel. That way, they have been able to portray Islam as extremist and backwards, when they themselves are the chief allies of Saudi Arabia, the source of this extremism.

    To Battlefield Earth.

    Liberal talking point and very superficial knowledge? That is what I can answer you with.
    I am not a practicing Christian, but I will side with the Christians in a tribal fashion anytime. The basic reason is the Christian churches never urges people to kill the non Christians.

    You appear to be confident that you are well informed about Islam, militant Islam, and political Islam? Would you call your knowledge and interest in this subject span, one decade, or two? I have spent six decades intimately involved in that subject. So, please attempt to learn from me, if you care to get some facts about these nut cases in the ME.

    Regarding the clitoris thing; I was watching a program (in Arabic) called Cairo Today with Amro Adeeb, and he had some guests on; one was a Salafi doctor, and the other was a Brotherhood member of Parliament? They were talking about how the “old dictator’s wife” has banned mutilation of girls private parts as a barbaric practice. And, that practice should be legal as long as the parents and the “doctor” agree? So here is the trick: The parents are typically ignorant religious infested people, and the doctor, is typically a Salafi Doctor (similar to our liberal doctors who would abort a woman after six month pregnancy with drilling the head of the baby). These barbarians were talking about some girls can have a big clitoris, and such can make them too excitable sexually? How many time did you see such a subject discussed on American TV?

    With major unemployment, and a devastated tourist industry, the Egyptian legislators need to be concentrated on something more important than oppressing women, would you think?

    Thanks for your exchange.

    • Battlefield Earth

      I totally agree with the fact that the Egyptian government needs to concentrate on more serious issues than the ones you have mentioned.

      You have not yet fully understood my point of this debate my friend. Its that do not blame ISLAM for such problems.

      As far as political, economic and social problems in the ME are concerned, I would request you to study the codes of conduct and laws Islam propagates about Economics, Society, Law, Government, Military, Politics, Business and personal life etc. No where in the middle east has an Islamic government taken charge of a country since the last 100 years ( and do not mention the Ottomans, (they also walked a different path shortly before their defeat). And please do not mention Saudi Arabia, those monarch-puppets are not to be seen as Islamic monarchs. (BTW, the concept of Monarchy is not endorsed by Islam, its Caliphate which was toppled nearly a 100 years ago).

      I surely agree that Churches dont ask people to kill non christians but there are people like Pastor Terry jones alive in this corrupt world. How would you categorize his actions?? I know he’s an exception but there are many others like him. Does that mean Christians are evil people?? I dont think so but he sure is.

      Likewise Islam and practising Muslims do not get involved in such things which the modern day media projects as being Muslim driven. You may have invested the last 6 decades on the topic but have you ever read the Scripture the Muslims are supposed to follow as the most major criterion, The Quran??? Please do so. You’ll soon find out who is and who is not practising Islam and how much of it has been practised since the last 100 years.

      My friend, I am a practicing Muslim and by far I have learned that Islam is a religion of Peace. Its an obligation on me to invite you to the religion of Islam and therefore I invite you to it. Please study it. But no one has the right to force you or anyone else into accepting it, you have a choice after all.

      And please turn off the modern day TV, Modern day media is media after all, whether it be American or Egyptian. They are all sell outs, and you know very well about the corporate-corruption in the media. Be impartial and be just.

      Thank you

    I have a special message to all the Islamic Jihad warriors out there. A message that just might save your lives if you are smart enough to read this. DON’T MESS WITH THE UNITED STATES!!!

    This nation is different than any other that you have targeted in the past. Americans don’t tolerate animalistic behavior and we will defeat you because we are different from anyone you’ve faced before.

    If you don’t believe me take a look at those f-15 fire jets screaming over your heads. Some of those are piloted be American women. That’s right! We don’t put our women in berkas, we put them in F-15s and send them after you guys. The mighty Mujahideen are being killed by American women, and the survivors are running and hiding from those American women. You might want to think about that before you bring your Jihad to America. We have the same kind of women living here in the states. I know because I’ve had to run and hide a couple of times myself. Lol

    Now Oshma Bin Laden was in a fortress surrounded by security in the middle of a Pakistani military center and our guys swooped in, killed him and stole his body without losing a single American.

    You might want to think about that because if you think our fighters are good in your land, wait until you try to fight them in the streets of America. If you bring Jihad to America you will not only have to fight our women and our military, you’ll also have to fight our National Guard, law enforcement officers, local militias, and border patrol.

    And here’s the real kicker. 8 out of 10 American homes are well armed with shotguns, rifles, and handguns. That’s because we live in freedom! Not what you’re used to. It doesn’t matter how much money you donate to Democrats, they’re never gonna succeed in taking guns away from the American people. Jihad in America doesn’t have a chance!

    So do yourselves a favor…. Don’t mess with the United States! Keep your Jihad right there in the Middle East where it belongs. Hey, every culture has it’s national sport. Ours is football… yours is Jihad.

    Thanks for putting all this into proper perspective. I’ve been noticing this trend going on, and have friends from the christian minority in Syria who have no grievances with Assad. They were living peacefully under his regim – no evil dictator wrap.

    Money is the motive – The US government figures if they aid the islamists in over throwing the “dictator”, which is the common enemy, in turn, broker deals for natural resources and influence in the region after their fall. Which often turn sour … islamists take help, but have these god-sent agendas that they are adamant of carrying out and find a way to break pacts.

    Long story short – we oppose rulers in the middle east that dont sport a beard (assad,mubarak,abdullah) We want the long beards! Sad.. Only because these rulers are not in favor of the USA foreign Policy , some thinking independently, some siding with communists, some not allowing the western world to plunder their resources. Thats why we do it. At least that what I think..

    When you’re a Christian in Iran you pay the extra tax. When you die and ONE of your kids has converted to Islam that kid will inherit everything. Conversely, converting back from Islam is punished by death.

    This has been the rule of the Kaliphate and it is law in Iran. It’s purpose is to enforce total islamisation.

    You may call that a tolerant society. I disagree. I call it something else.

    I agree with this 100%! The closest ally that the USA and Israel could have in the Middle East has been a secular president who was sometimes a little brutal in keeping order in his country (like the Shah of Iran, Saddam Hussein in Iraq, and Mubarek in Egypt). I had friends in the pharmaceutical industry who had clinical study sites in Baghdad in the 1980’s. That is, as an American you could go to Baghdad and visit, conduct business, etc throughout the 80’s. Then for no apparent reason we targeted Hussein as our enemy – he was the enemy of Exxon – not the people of the USA! We shouldn’t have fought against him – he was actually pro USA – as was the Shah in Iran! and Mubarek in Egypt! Now we are dealing with people, who we helped strengthen, who hate us to very core of their being! What kind of stupid policy is that! We had allies there and we abandoned them. But they weren’t just friend of the USA. They were friends of Capitalism and they represented millions of people who were ready to make contributions to this world, but were cut off and put on the back burner so that islamist fundamentalists who hate progress could take power! What a freakin shame!

      NO! WRONG, America’s closest allies are Israel and Gulf Monarchies…the governments you mentioned are puppets. Why didn’t America support the DEMOCRATICALLY LECTED PRIME MINISTER OF IRAN Mohammed Mosedegh. He was a prime minister who gave Women rights. The shah might have been secular but women still didn’t vote. It was America Saddam Hussein was a puppet, he then decided not to become one. America was trying to destro Arab Baa’th Party. Mohammad Mosaddegh or Mosaddeq (]; 16 June 1882 – 5 March 1967), was the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran from 1951 until 1953, when his government was overthrown in a coup d’état orchestrated by the British MI6 and the American CIA. He didn’t want WHITE PEOPLE to control oil. He was antionalist which all Iranians love. Ask any Iranian. The Shah or him, they will choose him. Mosaddegh explained his nationalization policy in a 21 June 1951 speech:“Our long years of negotiations with foreign countries…have yielded no results thus far. With the oil revenues we could meet our entire budget and combat poverty, disease, and backwardness among our people. Another important consideration is that by the elimination of the power of the British company, we would also eliminate corruption and intrigue, by means of which the internal affairs of our country have been influenced. Once this tutelage has ceased, Iran will have achieved its economic and political independence. The Iranian state prefers to take over the production of petroleum itself. The company should do nothing else but return its property to the rightful owners. The nationalization law provide that 25% of the net profits on oil be set aside to meet all the legitimate claims of the company for compensation. It has been asserted abroad that Iran intends to expel the foreign oil experts from the country and then shut down oil installations. Not only is this allegation absurd; it is utter invention.The party was founded in Syria in 1943 and spread around the Arab world, promoting Arab superiority and Arab unity with a violent, Soviet-style party structure.The Arab Socialist Ba’ath Party (Arabic: حزب البعث العربي الاشتراكي‎ Ḥizb Al-Ba‘ath Al-‘Arabī Al-Ishtirākī) was a political party founded in Syria by Michel Aflaq, Salah al-Din al-Bitar and associates of Zaki al-Arsuzi. The party espoused Ba’athism (fromArabic: البعث‎ Al-Ba’ath or Ba’ath meaning “renaissance” or “resurrection”), which is an ideology mixing Arab nationalist, pan-Arabism, Arab socialist and anti-imperialist interests. Ba’athism calls for unification of the Arab world into a single state. Its motto, “Unity, Liberty, Socialism”, refers to Arab unity, and freedom from non-Arab control and interference.Why was it that America, both left and right, wanted to bomb Syria? Wasn’t America a Christian country at one time? Didn’t the left in America claimed that President Bush lied about weapons of mass destruction? Now that the same left is in charge, they are saying that Syria has weapons of mass destruction? (you almost want to laugh) How about in Rwanda where the Hutus murdered 800,000 Tutsi in a matter of days? Why kind of weapons did they use? You people a morons. Assad protects Christians, Alawis, and other minorities. And all this bullshit about sectarianism is a joke. His wife is Sunni. Assad, Gaddafi (R.I.P.), Putin, and Chavez (R.I.P.) are the best world leaders. Iraq, Libya, Tunisia, and others were at one time secular socialists against WHITE IMPERIALISM. They had the Arab Baath Party which means in Arabic renaissance. America, the Dutch, French, British are the White Imperialism. who want no unity between Arab Muslims or Christians, people to the government, so they can divide and conquer. How is is the most SECULAR ME countries are America enemies Lebanon, Syria, Iran(freedom of religion for Jews/Christians), Libya(women rights, minority rights, free healthcare/education) and Iraq under Saddam…But America’s best friend is Saudi Arabia and Qatar…smells like Extremists to me, folks. WAKE UP! Syria is a place where Jews, Catholic, Greek Orthodox, Sunnis, Shias, Alawis, Ba’ahi, etc. live altogether. They have different religious groups in parliament like Iran, where Saudi Arabia, doesn’t allow anyone but a fair-skinned Sunni Saudi to breathe. America just wants to cut pipeline deal between Iran-Iraq-Russia-and Syria, install GMOS, (Syria doesn’t have any) and install IMF contract. Iraq was secular, THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE Saddam killed his people, the UN didn’t give America AUTHORIZATION, and ICC, INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT wanted BUSH NOT SADDAM to face war crimes he committed. NOW THERE IS A THEOCRACY, all thanks to good ol’ America. America supported the Shah who was secular but then he installed SABEGH which is the Iranian KGB and spied on his citizens, built castles all over the country and stole from his people. THEY THEN OVER THREW HIM , but not the ones you silly AMERICANS know about the so-called ISLAMIC REVOLUTION but the one in the 50s when a DEMOCRACY under Mohammad Mosaddegh, who gave women rights, minorty rights, and freedom to vote, he was the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran from 1951 until 1953, when his government was overthrown in a coup d’état orchestrated by the British MI6 and the American CIA” Most of Iran’s oil reserves were in the Persian Gulf area and had been developed by the British Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) for export to Britain. For a number of reasons–a growing consciousness of how little Iran was getting from the AIOC for its oil; refusal of the AIOC to offer of a ‘50–50% profit sharing deal’ to Iran as Aramco had to Saudi Arabia; anger over Iran’s defeat and occupation by the Allied powers–nationalization of oil was an important and popular issue with a “broad cross-section of the Iranian people. Mosaddegh explained his nationalization policy in a 21 June 1951 speech:Our long years of negotiations with foreign countries…have yielded no results thus far. With the oil revenues we could meet our entire budget and combat poverty, disease, and backwardness among our people. Another important consideration is that by the elimination of the power of the British company, we would also eliminate corruption and intrigue, by means of which the internal affairs of our country have been influenced.

The nationalization law provide that 25% of the net profits on oil be set aside to meet all the legitimate claims of the company for compensation. It has been asserted abroad that Iran intends to expel the foreign oil experts from the country and then shut down oil installations. Not only is this allegation absurd; it is utter invention” America wants control of Middle East and it will create and fund terrorists if needed. When will you realize America doesn’t care about Arab women/Muslim women, Arab minorities, or democracy! Its just a card they play, Americans buy the media sells lies. Hell, even the U.S. isn’t a democracy but a unitary republic! Even Libya had Gaddafi who was Secular and wanted unity between Africa, which is why he was the chairman of the African Union, and anti-white devil imperialism. Nelson Mandela was even friends with him and so was the rest of Africa. They consider hi to be black, the rest of the Arab world hated him except fro Assad and Saddam who were secular. Iraq, Libya, Tunisia, Syria…then Iran. So long Arab Ba’athism (secular socialist Arab unity against white Imperialism). Goodbye freedom of religion and secularism. Hello white-imperialism-wahabbis!

      How do you know if this is true. It AMUSES ME, you ignoramus Americans believe everything your government tells you. The ones who did the gassing is Al Qaeda militants. I would rather believe my friends in Aleppo and Homs, then WHITE IMPERIALIST AMERICA GOVT. America or no government hep anyone, its all lies, OIL, control, Banking system, etc. If America cares about DEMOCKRACY, why then befriend King Abdullah Azziz, Sultan Qaboos bin Said Al-Said of Oman, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo of Equatorial Guinea ” And yet, Human Rights Watch says Obiang’s country is “mired in corruption, poverty, and repression,” and his government “regularly engages in torture and arbitrary detention.” The president’s son reportedly spent more on luxury goods between 2004 and 2007 “than the country’s annual education budget.” Why does America complain about Assad when these guys are in charge,it’s ok ….Confusing. So, the U.S. government supports the brutal dictatorships that oppress their own people, which inspires anger and rage not only against the dictatorship but also against the United States, which the U.S. government then uses as a justification for its support of the dictatorship. How’s that for empire logic?

    The Iraq war had good intentions to get rid of very evil dictators in the middle east but it was the most poorly planned war in all of US history including Vietnam and many US troops had outdated survival equipment from the 80s and poor management.

    I think George Bush was bullied by the Congress where originally he didn’t want to do it but gave in to the ‘good ole boys’ in politics to save his ass and it’s been his downfall ever since. He’s probably now feeling guilty for not having a stronger back-bone.

    9/11 was George Bush’s big chance to prove he changed from being a hard core drinker to acting in lines of Christ but instead he totally blew it.

    As the old saying goes. ‘Garbage in, Garbage out’.

    The Iraq war is like a bad movie script where if it was a fiction war movie in the theaters it would get many negative reviews and people would demand their money back which within a week the movie would be pulled from every theater.

      BULLSHIT! Saddam Hussein supported minorities, he was secular. Now Iraq is run by a Shi’a theocracy thanks to America. He was a man that supported secularism. I rather have an awful secular leader than a theocrcay. “In addition, because of his staunch secularism and his secularization of Iraq, it was been difficult for devout and conservative Muslims of any type to think well of him.” This is what an atheist website said of him. On the other hand, Hussein was also one of the few Arab leaders to have been able to stand up to the West on a regular basis, asserting Iraqi and Arab independence from Western interests and power.On the other hand, after the U.S. attack on Iraq in 1991 that destroyed much of the country, and a 12-year devastating embargo, Saddam Hussein’s critics blamed him for the demise of the country that once was the jewel of the Arab world: the country his leadership produced.

      Saddam Hussein’s name was used by mainstream Western media to depict a barbaric and sadistic person. The scribes conveniently forgot, or did not take the time to learn about, the years in which Iraq was the premier Arab state that offered more human rights to its public than other Arab nations, especially in the area of freedom of religion and the liberation of women.

      This is not a history of his regime, but a view of him and his steadfastness after April 9, 2003, the date to which many people refer to as “The Fall of Baghdad.”

      On April 9, 2003, Saddam Hussein made his last public appearance. He was surrounded by tens of thousands of supporters in Baghdad who raised him up to the roof of his car so he could wave to them all.

        I completely agree with you and that’s the why I don’t understand the US foreign policy recently of fighting terrorism when we are the ones building it and instead of supporting secular leaders, we are strengthening Al Qaida. I don’t understand why the US supports the rebel groups in Syria who are trying to persecute the Christians and that’s what we did in Libya which is a total disaster now.

      Why would Bush “act in lines of Christ” when he is an occultic illuminati freemason?

    Not true that America hates Christians. That is a ignorant statement. There are more satanist individuals in Syria. Need proof? The slaughter of entire Christian villages dont happen in the US. There are obviously people in power in the US who are supporting a rebel group that hates Christians in Syria. I am a Christian and I am in America and there are more Christians here (Thank God) than any other religion. Especially Muslim, who have no place in our country in my opinion. but still we don’t hate muslins either nor do we slaughter them. Actually, muslims come here to our country to try and slaughter us, but a true US citizen will not engage in this satanic behavior. It comes from your country, need I remind you. I do not speak out against my country and I will never speak against my country as it is the greatest country in the world… obviously. However, I do not agree with supporting terrorist groups in Syria that slaughter Christians at all. Why we are doing this I don’t know. If we war with Syria, we should move to destroy all Syrians equally. But why are we involved anyway? Is it even necessary to kill Syrians? they seem to be doing a fine job of that themselves. We should not side with a government that uses chemical weapons on their own people and we should not side with Christian killing terrorists. Not sure what the benefit to us is either way. I say we keep out and let Syria decide their own fate, wither way Syria is a country full of terrorists and they all need to die… we should just not be the ones killing them. It is a waste of our tax payer money to help any side whether the government in Syria, or the satanic rebels. Syria hates the USA, the USA hates terrorists, so we should both go our own ways and only fight if our pats cross in a negative manner.

      The USA likes to stick it’s nose into other country’s business….but only those countries where they can gain something. Just look at the news…….wherever there is trouble, the USA is there. No wonder nobody likes them anymore.

    Muslims in the US are mostly peaceful and law abiding because they are content and well fed. All I am saying is give peas a chance!

    This is plain U.S hypocrisy. They say they are doing it in the name of “Democracy” but actually their aim is only to make Israel more safer. They created the Al-Qaida to fight the Russians and now they are funding ISIS. Shame on them….!
