Recently published photographs of people allegedly tortured by the regime of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad brought out the Nazi comparisons Wednesday by Syrian opposition leader Ahmed Jarba.

Speaking to the Geneva II talks, he said, “The pictures of torture are unprecedented except in the Nazi camps during the Second World War.”

The photos were provided by a Syrian military photographer who defected and showed evidence of the methodical murder of more than 11,000 people arrested by Assad’s forces.

The pictures are grounds for charging Syrian President Bassar al-Assad with war crimes, but his regime rejected the timing of the release of the report prior to the Geneva II conference as “categorical evidence that its goal … is to undermine efforts aimed at achieving peace in Syria.”

  1. So far the removal of Syrian chemical weapons has had some success but some missile tech and likely WMD’s are leaking through. Another important question is that while we try to do that will some other event in the middle east or border incident trigger a bigger war before the chemical weapons are removed? What then? With all of this volatility if anything should go wrong the war written about in Isaiah 17 may take place. Many will die on both sides and Damascus Syria would be destroyed. In July of 2012 I wrote a small booklet that talks about some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next
