“My name is Majid Kadiseh, I’m 22 years old. I defended Syria against terrorism until my martyrdom today in the Syrian Christian town of Maharda.
My killer is a barbaric terrorist funded, supported and covered by Turkey’s Erdogan and many western governments.”

“The Forty Martyrs Armenian Cathedral in Aleppo was re-consecrated on Saturday, four years after the jihadist rebels ransacked the building.
His Holiness Aram I, Catholicos of the Great House of Cilicia, visited the historic church after its reconstruction meant it could be opened again after Jabhat Al-Nusra razed parts of the compound back in April 2015.”

On Friday it will become illegal in the UK to show public support for the Lebanese organisation Hezbollah, which is about to be fully classified as a so-called “terrorist” organisation.
Hezbollah constitutes the biggest elected parliamentary group in the Lebanese government, and thousands of its supporters have courageously risked their lives and shed their blood protecting Christian, as well as Muslim, communities from Saudi-backed Wahhabi-Salafist head-choppers sent in to cause murder and mayhem in Syria and Iraq.
At the same time, the UK continues a lucrative multi-billion pound trade in arms sales to Saudi Arabia, an horrific trade in murder and mayhem that actually increased by two-thirds in 2017.
In return, Saudi Arabia funds the widespread construction of mosques throughout the UK which preach and indoctrinate Muslims living in the UK with the Wahhabi-Salafist message.
Common sense says it’s not going to end at all well.
The esteem in which Hezbollah is held throughout the Middle East by Christians can be gauged from the video produced below from a concert given by the Maronite Catholic singer Julia Boutros.
“H” was born in Damascus, and legally immigrated to the United States from Syria more than 20 years ago, long before the current war began. She became a U.S. citizen and earned a doctor’s degree from an American university. She is completely fluent in both English and Arabic. She recently returned from a trip back to Syria, where she has many family members and friends who keep her apprised of the situation there. She is also one of the kindest and most devoted Christians I have ever met. I am keeping H’s name confidential, as I do not wish this interview to in any way jeopardize her family’s safety in Syria, or the status of her professional work in the U.S.
“That ploy of chemical weapons is a lie.
We woke up at 4 am to the hiss of the missiles and we realized that the attacks were under way. Explosions were heard around Damascus. Now everything is quiet in the center but people are worried about the future.
We knew the US intended to bomb after the alleged chemical attack on the Eastern Ghouta but hope was placed in an objective investigation on the use of chemical weapons and that for this there would be no missiles launched”, declares the friar who hopes “it is not repeated what has already happened in Iraq that was invaded in 2003 [by a coalition formed for the most part by the United States and the United Kingdom, and by minor contingents of other states, ed] because the regime of Saddam Hussein had been accused of possessing weapons of mass destruction. Weapons that were never found. The intent is to destroy Syria. The project goes on with the bombs. We just have to pray for peace now more than ever.
That ploy of chemical weapons is a lie, it is once again American politics playing the game of power; it is a scenario already seen with Saddam Hussein, and if that is remembered, you see the consequences! Trump, like those who preceded him, uses the lie of chemical weapons to justify his attack on Syria, which aims to take control of the Syrian territory so as to become the hub of oil trafficking. This is Trump’s project, a pure project of power, supported by France and England and by the silence of the International Community.
Trump’s missile attack and its lying justification are a serious threat to world peace; Trump again supports the rebels against Assad, and asks the world to stand with him because he wants to eliminate a “bloody dictator” and so he supports rebels who promise a future of terror. The International Community must not fall into Trump’s trap, the choice is not between the rebels and Assad, the choice that the Christian community testifies to in Syria is between war and peace. Trump wants war, the Church in Syria builds peace! … “
“Do not trust one inch the vile British newspapers, nor our politicians. Personally, I’m absolutely ashamed of England’s part in pursuing this attack on Syria, or supporting this attack on Syria. I’m ashamed of Theresa May and Boris Johnson. Poor things! Poor wretched things! What has England suffered? Such lies, Such unspeakable lies! And England will be punished!
