Armenian City in Syria Re-Captured From Rebels: Every Church Had Been Destoyed

Hat tip Creeping Sharia and The Eponymous Flower

Kasab, the so-called "City of the Armenians" has been recently retaken by Assad forces in Syria from the rebels. However, while in rebel hands, every Armenian church was destroyed.

I wouldn't put it past ISIS to do this deliberately, but when a city has been captured and recaptured by competing armies, all of them vicious and ruthless, accurate news reporting requires some detail as to whether artillery fire from successive besieging forces caused some, most, or all of the damage, or whether there is clear evidence that sticks of dynamite were methodically laid around the foundations by a party then in occupation.

Similar to the capture of Jacob's Tomb in Nablus in October, 2,000.

A Palestinian mob attacked, aided by PA security forces. The rioters shot an Israeli border guard who had been assigned as part of security detailed assigned to guard the site. Palestinian commanders refused to allow his medical evacuation.. Nineteen year old Corporal Madhat Yusof then bled to death at Joseph's Tomb.

Israel forces abandoned the site after receiving guarantees from Palestinian security commanders that they would protect it. Just TWO HOURS after the IDF withdrew, the Palestinians raided the site and burned the holy books and the school inside. Three days later the Palestinians reprinted the dome roof green as they transformed it into a mosque. (Just as they wanted to do in N.Y.)

This is what their agreements are worth. This is the same brutality we see today. This is the same purposeful destruction of any other religion. This is what the ROP is like and what they will do.

The only ones who don't understand this are the clueless and, of course, President Obama.

A Palestinian mob attacked the Armenian city in Syria? Are you sure about that Gary? And the same Palestinian mob wanted to paint a green dome on the roof of a replica of Jacob's tomb in New York? Or did you mean Grant's tomb? You are getting remarkably spluttering incoherent this morning.

Maggie brought up the Palestinian not me. It is you who are remarkably incoherent.

True, it was Miggie. But its your blog, and sometimes its hard to distinguish you from your hard core fan club. Neat job of side-stepping all substantive questions by kicking up dust about the identity of the author.
