The global situation is eerily reminiscent of the early 1930’s. The political center can no longer hold and the Right and Left are gearing up for another round of the eternal battle between nationalism and worldwide enslavement. Spain in 1936 became the proving ground for the war that would begin three years later. The international communist movement poured men, material, and money into the hands of the Socialists fighting to control Spain. The Right gave the same to the forces fighting under the heroic Francisco Franco, including Germany’s famed Condor Legion. Spain became the first battleground of the Second World War as the powers of the globe stared one another down to see who would be victorious.
The civil war in Syria has become the 21st century version of the Spanish Civil War. The battle lines have been clearly drawn, and blood is in the water. On one side we have the forces of the international bankers and the globalist elites. On the other side we have the defenders of nationalism and supporters of Christianity. The United States, the Western European nations, and Israel are facing off against Syria, Iran, Eastern Europe, and Russia.
After a string of stunning “successes” for “democracy” in which the Muslim Brotherhood was given Egypt, radical Islamic extremists were allowed to take over Libya, and the United States invaded and occupied Afghanistan and Iraq (nations also run once again by Islamic extremists), the political elites have decided that arming affiliates of Al Qaeda in the battle against a force against extremism in the region, is somehow a good idea. The so called ‘Arab Spring’ and the American incursions into the Middle East have not made anyone free, they have toppled moderate rulers who kept a lid on Islamic extremists and given the inmates not only the keys to the asylum, but also given them rockets, guns, and missiles.
What is evident is that the West and Israel truly have no interest in toppling President Bashar al-Assad for the cause of democracy, human rights, or any part of their stated agenda. The Assad regime undeniably has been tough, and not the closest friend of a a Western style human rights record. Given the fact however that the only way to control radical Islamic extremists hell bent on overthrowing the government is through force, perhaps instead of denouncing Assad, the West should learn a lesson from Syria. Perhaps if we wanted less Boston Marathon bombings or beheading of soldiers on our streets, it would make sense to be tough on Islamic terrorists within our own borders.
Christians around the globe should support President Assad not only because his opposition are Muslim extremists who wish to eradicate native Christian populations, as seen in Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Egypt, but because of his record of defending the rights to organize and worship of the Syrian Christians.
President Assad has defended the Christian minority within his borders better than any of the neighboring regimes. When comparing the treatment of Christians in Syria to the chief instigator against Syria, Israel, there is no comparison. While Assad punishes Muslims who attack Christians and used the government to protect Christian holy sites, Israel has no qualms about abusing the Christian minority.
The Vatican said last year that “Christian holy sites in Israel have been subjected to a series of organised attacks which the authorities have done nothing to prevent.” That is in addition to arson attacks against Churches and monasteries.
Sacred icons have been destroyed in the increasingly violent attacks against Christian sites in Israel. Non-Jews are often harassed by Ultra-Orthodox Israeli Jews, even documentary filmmakers from America are not immune from being attacked. It is common on Israeli television to mock Christianity, recently one television station mock crucified a monkey to make fun of the Christian holiday of Good Friday. Father Pierbattista Pizzaballa who is a Franciscan priest in Israel, told reporters about “an incident that occurred in July, when an Israeli lawmaker tore up a copy of the New Testament in front of television camera. “
This year as well, Israel has decided to also renege on long standing deal with the most holy of all Christian sites, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. An Israeli water company cut off the water and had the Israeli government freeze the accounts of the Church’s that have a space within the site. The spokesman for the Greek Patriarch said that “They have frozen our account. This is a flagrant act against the church. The church is completely paralysed. We can’t pay for toilet paper. Nothing. [The water company] Hagihon has declared war on us.” These are just a few of the extensive list of examples of Israel’s attacks against the Christian minority.
It goes without saying that when comparing the United States of America with Syria, that the Syrian Assad regime has been far kinder to Christians than our own government. Not only has the United States violated the basic tenets of Just War, killed fifty five million of our own children, allowed homosexual marriage, and attacked Christians at home, they even have turned on Christian soldiers who uphold this tyrannical regime.The United States government believes that Christian soldiers who preach the Gospel or even give a copy of the Bible should be court martialed. The United States government also has on its payroll men like Mikey Weinstein who is now a leading voice about de-Christianizing the military. Weinstein is the man who told his Leftist audience that practicing Christians should be opposed and that the United States should “not lubricate the path of their racism, bigotry, and prejudice. Doing so directly threatens the national security of our beautiful nation.”
If the United States and Israel are supposedly the friends of Christians, who needs enemies?
The leaders who have been toppled by Western intervention and now President Assad were the greatest defenders of Christians in the region. The New York Times reported about this phenomenon as the Syrian Civil War was nearing it’s second year.“Throughout the years, Christians, like many other minorities in the region, have lent their support to those regimes that have guaranteed their security and religious freedom. In Iraq, Christians rose to the highest levels of society under Saddam Hussein’s regime, while in Egypt, Coptic Christians were protected from ultraconservative Salafists under Hosni Mubarak. As secular leaders from the secretive Alawite sect, the Assad dynasty largely preserved Christian life, protecting Syria’s minorities from what was perceived as a collective threat from the country’s Sunni majority.”
Not only did President Assad protect Christians, he also helped the West in identifying Muslim terror suspects and gained intelligence to help the international community stop Islamic terrorism. Time after time President Assad has helped the West and his own people, why now have his former allies turned on the moderate ruler in favor of cannibalistic Islamic terrorists? The answer is simple: politics.
While President Assad created stability in the region, protected religious minorities, and helped the global war on terror, it was not enough. The forces of globalism has determined that the Syrian government must fall in order to advance their economic and political aspirations in the region. Through proxies and international aid, the Western alliance is prepared to do whatever it takes to destroy the Assad regime and to plunge Syria into utter anarchy. The so-called “Free Syrian Army” is made up mostly of foreign jihadists who have flocked to Syria to attempt to create an Islamic Sharia law State.This is a great situation for the international elites because it allows cheap and easy access to Syria’s resources while allowing an opportunity to put into power pawns of their globalist agenda.
The only force standing in the way of the toppling of Syria besides the bravery of the Syrian people, is her loyal allies. Iran and Russia both are a threat to the globalist hegemony present in our modern era. These are two nations that care little about the egalitarian “values” of the European Union and the United States. They are both countries that care more about the independence and success of their people than selling their souls to become parts of the “international village.”
Russia especially is leading the charge against stopping the globalists in their tracts. From refusing to bend on the Christian principles of their nation in regards to gay marriage, they also have staked out their sphere of influence and put up a big sign that states “Globalists Need Not Apply.” President Vladimir Putin routed the capitalist oligarchs who were looting Russia for the internationalists and instead decided to put his people first. Part of this agenda has been based upon the defense of Russia’s allies.
The sleeping bear of Mother Russia has returned to the international stage. President Putin has showed the world that Russia supports her commitments and that the West has no place in Russia’s sphere of influence. While the West has poured arms, money, and even politicians for photo ops into Syria, Russia has remained a backer of President Assad. Recently the support has been brought to a new level with Russia committing “ that it would supply one of its most advanced anti-aircraft missiles to the Syrian government hours after the EU ended its arms embargo on the country’s rebels.” These missiles would be a large deterrent for the West to not desire to bomb Syrian targets as Israel has already done. Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon upped his countries warmongering rhetoric by saying that if the self defense missiles were brought to Syria that “If they do arrive in Syria, God forbid, we’ll know what to do.”
The stakes are climbing as the West has begun to realize that President Assad may just stay in power, contrary to their plans. The support of Mother Russia and regional allies, alongside the tenacity of the Syrian people has stopped the globalist onslaught. Senator John McCain and other neocons are calling for more support for the Syrian Islamic militants, while Iran is sending elite ground forces into Syria. Israel has bombed Syria and President Assad has threatened retaliation. Russia and Syria’s allies are upping their support as the West does the same for the rebels. The result is that this proxy war is quickly shaping up to potentially be a wide scale global conflict.
The next round of the fight between nationalists and the globalist elites is shaping up in the dusty streets of Damascus. Will the nationalists prevail as we did in Spain, or will the internationalists get another head to mount on their wall, and be one step closer to global domination? Only time will tell, but for the sake of nationalists everywhere, for the safety of our Christian brothers and sisters, and to rekindle the hope of stopping this globalists insidious agenda I simply say that I pray President Bashar al-Assad is victorious. If Assad is toppled it is not only a loss for Syria, but it is a defeat for anyone who wants to fight against the forces of the New World Order. May God bless Syria, and may he be with President Assad in these times of darkness.
