The reason for the destruction of Syria and its Christians - not to mention its hapless innocent non-Christians - is now laid before us thanks to Wikileaks which has released one of Hillary Clinton's notorious emails.
It explains much why Christians and its remnants in the Middle East are facing obliteration.
I return to this subject often here for the purpose of helping my fellow citizens and fellow Christians understand how a once relatively peaceful Middle East has turned into a chaotic stew of murdered civilians, destroyed churches, escaping people and civilizational catastrophe. It has always been with one goal in mind that these crimes have been committed, and now that goal has, once again, been exposed.
Not that this is any big secret. The fanatical neocons in Washington have made it abundantly clear who they are backing in this, some of them too stupid to realize that the horse they are backing is responsible for all this mayhem and death, and some of them knowing full well what they are doing as they carefully examine which side of their bread the butter is on.
Clinton is hardly alone in this degrading and slavish support of those who manipulate events so that more innocents are killed. Nearly every congressman, senator, presidential candidate, major news outlet, major Catholic news outlet, every Dispensationalist so-called Christian has been almost literally bought off either with money, offers of prestige or religious ignorance to support the destroyers.
I don't understand it.
It would seem that every time some new atrocity boils to the surface a new Catholic voice appears either in the mainstream media or on the internet getting the story completely backward, not daring to look at "that man behind the curtain", not wanting to "go there" and, as such, staying uninformed about the true nature of the suffering in that unhappy land. The only explanation I can find for this unwillingness to face reality is the seventy years of continuous non-stop propaganda that has been drummed into our consciousness by one side only of the struggle, the side with the most influence, money and power.
This aversion to the reality of the Middle East conflict by my fellow Christians will prove fatal, not only for the souls in the Middle East but very possibly our own.
