Looking at what is and has been going on in the Middle East for a long time, you have to wonder if getting rid of Christianity there is a main part of the agenda, both over there and in this country.
In Iraq, Saddam Hussein was no Sunday school teacher. He was a brutal dictator, who had been placed in power by the United States. They used to say of him, “Hussein was a thug, but he was our thug.” One thing you had to say about him, though, was that for all his faults, and they were numerous, he left the Christians in Iraq alone. They were not persecuted under his regime. You cannot say the same for his Muslim successors.
Now we have this mess going on in Syria and Assad is supposed to be the reincarnation of Hitler, Attilla the Hun and the Mongol hoards all rolled into one. We have certain people that are screaming for “regime change” in Syria. Quite frankly, these chemical attacks that have gone on there look like classic false flag events. The same pattern seems to emerge in all of them and it’s like someone carries these out, about a year or so apart from one another and this brings on yet another shout for “regime change.” Sort of like–well we tried this last year and it didn’t take, so let’s wait awhile and try it again this year. Surely in the lapse of time between the last try and this one, people will have forgotten that we used this scenario before and we can do it the same way again and all the right people will howl again this year for “regime change.” Sound familiar?
And again in Syria, as in Iraq, Assad doesn’t bother the Christians. As bad as he is, do you think what replaces him with a change of regimes will leave the Christian alone? If Assad is toppled you will almost certainly see him replaced with some sort of radical Islamic group which has as part of its agenda some sort of Sharia Law and the destruction of Christianity. That’s what all these Islamic groups in the Middle East want, no matter what they say. If the truth were known, that’s what Obama wanted when he was in office. Anyone ever notice how many Muslims were part of his administration? If you think he was about to give Christians a fair shake then you are dreaming!
Make no mistake, our Deep State in this country wants Assad gone in Syria and in all those Middle Eastern countries they want regimes that will be compliant to their concept of a One World Government. Our Deep State here wants a Middle East made in its own image just as much as they want a United States molded in their own image. These people, with the help of the United Nations, want to construct a modern Tower of Babel and reach up to Heaven and secure a place there for themselves all on their own. No “salvation only through Jesus Christ” for these people! They’ll make it on their own–so they think! Too late they will realize their gross error–but by then they will have destroyed lives and countries–all the more for them to answer for!
Truly hath God said “All who hate me love death.”
