Obama Ignored Syrian Christian Requests for Weapons

Not Christians, Obama Approved for Weapons Transfers

Not Christians, Obama Approved for Weapons Transfers

What does it take to pry some weapons out of Obama’s clenched little fists? He’ll give weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt, but not to its military. He’ll give weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood militias in Syria, but not the Syrian Christians who are only asking for weapons to defend themselves.

There’s a common denominator here. See if you can spot it.

Tens of thousands Syriac Christians – members of the oldest Christian community in the world – have fled their ancestral provinces of Deir al-Zour and Hasakah in northeastern Syria, residents have said.

Hasakah and other towns in northeastern Syria have long been one of the main population centres for Christians, who make up approximately 10 per cent of the country’s population. Residents estimate that at least a third of Christians in northeastern Syria have fled, with few expecting to return.

“It began as kidnapping for money, but then they started telling me I should worship Allah,” a male Christian resident of Hasakah who was kidnapped by jihadists said.

“I was with five others. We were tied and blindfolded and pushed down on our knees. One of the kidnappers leant so close to my face I could feel his breath. He hissed: ‘Why don’t you become a Muslim? Then you can be free’.”

Another Christian in Hasakah said he knew of “five forced conversions” in recent weeks.

A Christian man calling himself Joseph and living in Hasakah said: “The only unprotected group are the Christians. The Arabs had arms coming from Saudi and Qatar, the Kurds had help from Kurdistan. We had no weapons at all.”

Local residents said many Christians had tried to join the rebellion against President Assad, but their efforts were marginalised early on by sectarian minded Sunni rebel groups.

Bassam Ishak, a Christian member of the main opposition bloc the Syrian National Coalition, who comes from Hasakah, said he and his colleagues had tried “several times” to approach western officials asking for weapons for Christian groups to defend their areas.

“The West wants to arm the seculars or ‘West friendly’ people, well we, the Syriac Christians those people. We want arms to protect our communities,” he said. “We spoke to western diplomats asking for help, and everyone ignored us”.

If only they were Muslims, Barack Obama would give them weapons. If only they would become Muslims, is Obama’s implicit message, they could be free.

    Barack O’bama is really the best poster-boy for the pro-choice movement:”Say no to abortion and your moronic son will end up rulling your country”

      Sorry guys – stop trying to focus attention away from the greatest evil in the Universe – Islam. Women must have domain over their own bodies – end of that argument. Now work on getting rid of Obama and his Muslim cohorts!!!

    Yeah…but. Isn’t there always a yeah but. President Bush didn’t exactly arm or protect the Christians in Iraq either, as he let them be slaughtered, then let them endure ethnic cleansing.

    If the Sunnis win, then the Christians in Syria will inevitably be slaughtered and then suffer ethnic cleansing.

    The West should act to remove all the Christians and other religious minorities in the Islamic world, then it should ban and reverse all mass Muslim immigration along with all of its excess baggage on the grounds that it is really stealth jihad for the long-term purpose of demographic conquest, and then finally abandon and isolate the Islamic world, but not first without eradicating the ruling Mullahs of Iran and their nuclear weapons program and forcing the Pakistanis into handing over their massive nuclear weapons arsenal and into destroying their nuclear weapons program. But that will never happen because the Euroloons are under the spell of the OIC.

      You are right – we should be swapping populations, extract Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists from areas where they are minorities under threat and throw back the Muslim sub-humans to replace them…

    • Donald Sanver

      The West has a long history of letting Muslims swine slaughter Christians in the Middle East. The British (my own country) ignored the genocide of Assyrians and of the Armenians.

  • ahem

    I’m convinced Obama is a Sunni Muslim.

    • Everett Vulgamore

      im more convinced now than ever that obama is the real terrorist

      • Naresh Krishnamoorti

        You’re right. Obama wants to terrorize American into submission.

  • Nick Carroll

    maybe he just thought that not all Muslims are evil so in order to stabilize the region we should give weapons to authorities and not to opposition forces be them Christian or Muslim,and all you other people in the comments that get all there information from fox news try for me to watch more sources otherwise I don’t find you credible.

    The desperate pleas for help from Christians are ignored. Devout Muslim President Obama REFUSES to provide Christians in Syria with weapons to defend themselves from the cruel, barbaric Muslim terrorists who are attacking them with the weapons provided to them by Obama.

    God help the world’s innocents!

    Devout Muslim Obama at the UN: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.””

    Many regard Obama’s declaration as a DEATH THREAT to those who tell the truth about Islam.

    Whatever happened to America the great nation; once known as the Land of the Free? A city set on a hill whose light of freedom shone to the entire world. How dim that light has become. The light is almost gone now.

    Wait till all those thousands of Syrian refugees come to the US. See how many are Christians. I’ll bet they are at the back of the line.
