It’s not only Assad with his back against the wall
What will happen if and when Assad and his regime falls, is the mass persecution of Christians on a similar scale seen in the wake of a post-Saddam Iraq. There are some very, very nervous Christians right about now wondering whether its the right time to head for the hills.
The Tolerant Dictator
Syria’s Christians Side with Assad Out of Fear
Many of Syria’s 2.5 million Christians are supporting President Bashar Assad amidst ongoing protests in the country. They prefer a brutal dictator who guarantees the rights of religious minorities to the uncertain future that Assad’s departure would bring. The president is exploiting their fears of Islamists for his own ends.
Might be a good time for Christians and anyone else to get out of Damascus before it is reduced to landfill (Isaiah 17:1)
Talk about being between Assad and a hard place!
All my Lebanese Christian friends (no exceptions) side with him! Since he comes from a minority, the Alaouis, he also protects minorities, as well as the many great Christian sites there, such as one of the last Aramaic villages on Earth with its monastery.
Say, I am getting the impression comments seem to disappear sometimes on tundratabloids. I posted a comment a few hours ago on this issue, didn’t get confirmation that it had been posted, (and it didn’t appear) but when I reposted the comment I got a notice that I had already posted it. In the meantime, some comments were added by others, but mine still hasn’t appeared somehow. What’s cooking ?
Hi Anushirvan….it has to be a browser issue, I have lost comments on other sites as well. the only sure fire way to ensure nothing is lost is to writes it up separately on your pc then submit it. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I would never delete anything you put up, never.
