Syrian Christians starving as Obama and western nations support rebels   02/08/2013

In late breaking news, Barnabas Aid, a Christian organization who supports Christians who are prosecuted in various areas of the world received notice on Thursday from one of their Christian partners, an anonymous doctor, in Aleppo, Syria, that the war-torn city that has been forgotten as the world stands by and fails to intervene on behalf of its devastated citizens.

The report from the doctor states that the citizens are in desperate need of help due to the fighting between the Syrian army and al-Qaeda supported rebels, complicated by the support of the rebels by the Obama Administration and some western nations, are leading to starvation.

A blockade was set-up by the rebels and have effectively blocked humanitarian aid to the Christians while the west stands by and does nothing.

The doctor said, “Our situation in these hectic, unpredictable days in Aleppo, with no food or meat or bread at ease, no free movement, no security and no encouraging good news on the horizon.”

“At the national level, nothing has changed since then apart from more suffering and more losses of souls and belongings. The two sides of the war continue to confront each other with no clear winner or loser at a cost of: more than 100,000 killed, more than a million and a half refugees in the neighboring countries, and more than 3.8 million internally displaced people (IDPs).”

“Hundreds of thousands have migrated to Europe and the Americas.”

Last month, President Obama indicated sending more arms to the Syrian rebels but Congress delayed that transfer due to fears of arms landing in the hands of al-Qaeda but that seems to have been approved now, with some Republican opposition, which will make matters worse.

While some rebels and Al-Qaeda have been having issues with each other, their alliance is as USA Today reported in June, strong.

USA Today reported earlier this month that the Syrian rebel group's April pledge of allegiance to al-Qaeda's replacement for Osama bin Laden suggests that the terrorist group's influence is not waning and that it may take a greater role in the Western-backed fight to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.

USA also stated that the pledge of allegiance by Syrian Jabhat al Nusra Front chief Abou Mohamad al-Joulani to al-Qaeda leader Sheik Ayman al-Zawahri was coupled with an announcement by the al-Qaeda affiliate in Iraq, the Islamic State of Iraq, that it would work with al Nusra as well and that al Nusra is generating loyalty in Aleppo, a region battling for months with Assad.

“Every day, mortar shells fall on the quarters inhabited especially by Christians and Armenians. Those mortars are fired by the rebels; they are homemade but are still causing some deaths and seriously wounding dozens. The smell of death is everywhere nowadays,” the Doctor said.

“The inhabitants have waited in vain for protests by the Western public, so prompt at protesting over the slightest offense, and the pressure of its leaders on the rebels to lift the blockade, “the Doctor reported. “It is no longer a military or political problem but a humanitarian issue. Starving a population of 2.5 million people is logically a crime against humanity for those who believe in peace and justice.”

“To be silent is to accept the rule of Western politicians.”
