I would like Christians all over the world, but especially American Christians, to take a good look at this video, which shows Christians in Syria expressing support for their government.
Now please allow me to ask you a question: who has more credibility, the mainstream media or these Christians in Syria? Come on now, American Christians, put your thinking caps on! The mainstream media, which does pretty much nothing but lie nonstop, has been telling us all along that Bashar Assad, the president of Syria, is a ruthless dictator who has killed thousands of his own people. Yet here we find a town full of Christians who say the Assad government has been their protector and their friend. They are afraid—not of their government, but of losing their government! And with good reason, I might add, since what will life be like for them if the armed rebels of NATO take over the country?
The video is extraordinary for another reason as well. Note that the people interviewed speak Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus. It is their native tongue. There are very few places in the world today where Aramaic is still spoken, and this is one of them. Contemplate that for a moment. There is a good chance these may be modern-day descendants of the original followers of Jesus.
It is important that people strive to discern truth from falsehood because the lies are coming nonstop nowadays, much like cheap manufactured products off an assembly line. As I noted in two recent posts (here and here ) a change in the mainstream media’s M.O. is now underway. The usual tactics of spinning, distorting, and selectively reporting the news have been cast aside in favor of outright lying. What we are seeing now is a media that literally creates its own realities—in which down is up, black is white, love is hate, and war is peace. This nefarious process began with NATO’s atrocities last year in Libya and has now shifted into high gear with Syria. How is it that despite all the weapons and support from NATO, the rebels still have not been able to overthrow the government? This is a pretty big tip-off. It suggests that Assad must have widespread support—far more than the mainstream media are letting on. The Christians in this Syrian town, like the population as a whole, do not want to see their country bombed and attacked by NATO.
