World War I as thought of as an Islamic jihad and or a Christian crusade is in essence very similar, but it involved diverse nations of differing historical background and from opposing regions of the world. Although the terms jihad or crusade had a religious connotation, the actual dealings, which occurred, by the Ottomans and the British were based on interests, benefits, strategy, and not necessarily religion. These religious ideas were used to rationalize war against a perceived enemy. The ordinary individual on both sides and his religious passions were sparked by these religious philosophies, which were used by their leaders to start conflict and continue it for the benefit of the heads of these empires. It is not the ordinary individual who benefited from war rather the planers and thinkers who use ordinary people to condition them to do their dirty work. History is repeating itself as ISIS is doing this today in Mosul, Iraq and other regions against the Assyrian Christians, the Indigenous people of Nineveh. It must be stated that ISIS itself is a tool in the hands of the same schemers who since 2003 until today have been terrorizing, displacing, and killing Assyrian Christians. One must ask the question of who is benefiting from these criminal acts and then we will know who is responsible.
The coalition of supporters for the March 9th "Stop the Christian Genocide in Syria" protest outside the Turkish Consulate in Los Angeles, California, continues to grow, with the American Mesopotamian Organization joining the cause.
MP George Galloway, in a moving speech on Press TV defends the Christians of the Maaloula Town in Syria against Al Qaeda forces hired by Obama.
George Galloway is a British politician, writer, and broadcaster, and the Respect Party Member of British Parliament for Bradford West. Mr. Galloway is known as a brave man, who tells the truth no matter what the consequences.
Devastated by the recent rebel attacks on Christian villages and churches in Syria, especially the Christian town of Maaloula, the Assyrians among all Syrian Christians, say no to U.S. strike on Syria. The Assyrian community around the world and on the social networks is sharing and signing the MoveOn.org petition by Rachel Royce which is to be delivered to the United States House of Representatives, the United States Senate, and President Barack Obama.
President Obama, John Kerry, John McCain and Lindsey Graham are all peddling the anti-Syrian government line and now they have a beloved "red line," whereby they can assist the Syrian Muslim Brotherhood and various al-Qaeda terrorist groups. Of course, when Carla del Ponte stated earlier this year that the United Nations believed that terrorist forces had used chemical weapons; then, of course, this was conveniently ignored by America, France, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the United Kingdom. Similarly, it appears that Obama, Kerry, McCain and Graham don’t believe in a red line when it applies to al-Qaeda affiliates, the Free Syrian Army (FSA) and other terrorist forces.
The recent political maneuvers over attacking Syria by the United States and its allies, definitely displays implementation of the Zionist Plan for the Middle East. Obama is to obey the Israeli plan written three decades before his presidency, in 1982.
The Apostolic Foundation of the Church in Sri Lanka and South India is linked to St Thomas, the doubting disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ.
India had Christians from the very early times, and there is no doubt that they would have had some impact on Sri Lanka especially because of the geographic proximity of these two countries and also because of the trade and commerce between them.
