Syrian Sunni Rebels Massacre 60 Shiite Villagers

After their abject defeat on the hands of the Syrian army and the Lebanese Shiite group Hezbollah in the central strategic city of al-Qussair near the Lebanese border, the radical Sunni rebels on Wednesday stormed a Shiite village in eastern Syria, killing 60 villagers and burning out their homes, Xinhua reports.

Radical Sunni Muslim rebels stormed the Hatla Shiite village in Syria’s eastern province of Deir al-Zour, said the pro-rebel Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Atrocities committed in the Shiite town were carried out on a sectarian basis, the Observatory said.

The insurgency in Syria largely consists of Sunni fighters who oppose President Bashar al-Assad’s administration that belongs to the Alawite minority, an offshoot of Shiite Islam. Assad, in turn, is supported by the Shiite-governed Iran and by the Shiite terrorist group Hizbollah.

  1. When I read an article like this I wonder how can religios persons justify this behavior?

  2. And this just keeps moving toward the likely fulfillment of Isaiah 17. Most people don’t know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today. Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at Isaiah 17. I’m not saying it is, but it looks like it very well could be. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists 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.
