I traveled over 7,000 miles to hear this story.
Just a couple of weeks ago, I was in the comfort of my Dallas condo reporting on the story of the U.S. backed rebel coalition attacks on the small Christian village of Maaloula, about 45 minutes north of Damascus, Syria. I was getting all my information from the internet. The reports were sketchy and solid facts were hard to come by. I felt called to travel to the Middle East and try to get the real story.
Now I was in Lebanon, sitting on a sofa with a woman who was attacked in Maaloula because she was a Christian.
All America needs to hear this. She’s describing an attack on Christians that the Obama Administration and Republicans like John McCain enabled. It’s even more ominous because it’s part of pattern on the part of President Barack Obama, Senator John McCain and others of backing forces–such as Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood–who are clearly targeting Christians.
Christianity in the Middle East is on the verge of being wiped out by Islamic jihadists and the United States government is helping make it happen.
The attack on Maaloula was carried out by U.S. backed rebel forces. It happened concurrently with John Kerry calling the Free Syria Army ‘moderates’ in Senate Testimony. It happened by rebels that appear to have been emboldened by Obama and McCain’s talk of launching missiles against the Assad regime.
All the foreign policy rhetoric comes down to real stories like this.
A jihadist suicide bomber takes out the checkpoint in Maaloula. As you listen, remember what John McCain said about shouting “Allahu Akbar” being the same as shouting ‘Thank God!”
Armed men enter the house.
How did they know they were Christians?
