More information on yesterday’s al-Qaeda led attack on the Christian village of Maaloula near Damascus, Syria. Not only did they firebomb the village, and threaten to slaughter all Christians once the U.S. helps “liberate” Syria, but they also fired missiles and mortars at two ancient churches, St. Alias Church and St. Grace Church, while spraying the entrances of the churches with bullets.

Around eight defenders of the village were killed by the al-Qaeda led jihadis, who in the video below can be heard shouting “Allahu Akbar,” Islam’s ancient war cry. Nonetheless, John McCain, who wants the U.S. to aid al-Qaeda in Syria, absurdly insists that shouting “Allahu Akbar” is equivalent to a Christian saying “Thank God,” and that the rebels in Syria are “moderates and I guarantee you they are moderates.”..  Continue to video 


Raymond Ibrahim, a Middle East and Islam specialist, is author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). His writings have appeared in a variety of media, including the Los Angeles Times, Washington Times, Jane’s Islamic Affairs Analyst, Middle East Quarterly, World Almanac of Islamism, and Chronicle of Higher Education; he has appeared on MSNBC, Fox News, C-SPAN, PBS, Reuters, Al-Jazeera, NPR, Blaze TV, and CBN. Ibrahim regularly speaks publicly, briefs governmental agencies, provides expert testimony for Islam-related lawsuits, and testifies before Congress. He is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center; Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow, Middle East Forum; and a Media Fellow at the Hoover Institution, 2013. Ibrahim’s dual-background -- born and raised in the U.S. by Coptic Egyptian parents born and raised in the Middle East -- has provided him with unique advantages, from equal fluency in English and Arabic, to an equal understanding of the Western and Middle Eastern mindsets, positioning him to explain the latter to the former.

This is a clash of cultures. There can be no peace between Islam and the rest of the world. Its not a "War on Terror". There is no such thing as a "Moderate Muslim". A radical Muslim wants to kill you. A moderate Muslim wants someone else to kill you. Ann Coulter had it right. We should kill all their leaders and convert their children.

These are the people who want to overthrow Assad and Obama wants to support them. That would be the height of absurdity but then Obama is so brilliant, he must know what he is doing. Obama is another student of which Harvard can be so proud, particularly after a number of their other graduates were implicated in creating the 2007-2008 economic disaster in this country.

This video should be sent to every Senator and Congressman. Maybe then we can be assured of a "no" vote.
