Bloodbath in Syria Kills 160 Rebels and Soldiers

Heavy fighting between Syrian rebels and loyalists to Syrian President Bassar al-Assad has claimed at least 160 lives in the suburbs of Damascus the past two days as the regimes continues to use starvation as a weapon.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said deadly clashes broke out on Friday in Ghouta, east of the capital, where the government has prevented food, water and medicine from entering.

Most of the casualties reportedly were from Al Qaeda  groups trying to open the supply road. One of those killed was said to be Ammar Tabajo, who has used an alias to  transmit to Western media information, such as the chemical weapons attack last August.

    Perhaps the jihadists from their conflicting death cults will just eradicate each other and leave the rest of us in peace

  2. Ben II says:

    this is the true meaning of Islam. Shimon Peres would call them “peace partners.”

  3. John Eckart says:

    Life's most important question: Will you go to Heaven when you die? Here's a quick test. Have you ever lied (we all have…), stolen anything (the value is irrelevant), or used God's name in vain? Jesus said, "whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart." Have you looked with lust? Will you be guilty on Judgment Day? If you have done those things, God sees you as a lying, thieving, blasphemous, adulterer at heart. The Bible warns that if you are guilty you will end up in Hell.

    That's not God's will. He sent his Son to suffer and die on the cross for you. You broke God's Law, but Jesus paid your fine. That means he can legally dismiss your case. He can commute your death sentence: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Then Jesus rose from the dead and defeated death.

    Pray something like this: "Dear God, I repent of all of my sins (name them). Please forgive me God. This day I put my trust in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen."
