Russian intervention in Syria helps Christians, says archbishop

Aleppo archbishop says Christians in the country feel hope thanks to Putin’s involvement

One of Syria’s leading churchmen has welcomed Russia’s intervention.

Melkite Greek Catholic Archbishop Jean-Clément Jeanbart of Aleppo told Swiss television that Vladimir Putin’s intervention was a source of “hope” for the country’s Christians.

The Russian president, Archbishop Jeanbart told Télévision Suisse Romande, “serves the Christians’ cause”, even if Moscow was only serving its own interests.

Archbishop Jeanbart spoke of a “renewal of confidence” among Christians in Syria, adding that President Putin “is solving a problem”.

Russia escalated its military involvement late last month, launching attacks on Syrian rebels in Homs, and against ISIS in the formerly heavily Christian village of Al-Qaryatayn, which the terrorist group overran in the summer.

ISIS, which controls the east of the country, has carried out numerous atrocities against Christians and other minorities. However, the al-Assad regime has been blamed for the majority of the 200,000 deaths since the conflict began in 2011.

    THE WESTERN NATIONS HAVE BECOME WEAK, CHRISTIANS HAVE BECOME WEAK. WE OFFER THE OTHER CHEEK ALL THE TIME – WHY? BEACUSE LORD JESUS SAID SO. WE MUST NOW FOLLOW WHAT IS WRITTEN IN THE BIBLE “A TOOTH FOR A TOOTH & AN EYE FOR AN EYE” AND PUT THE FANATICAL MUSLIMS IN THEIR PLACE. THEY DONT UNDERSTAND NON VIOLENCE WHICH JESUS PREACHED & BEFORE HIM LORD BUDDHA HENCE WE NEED TO BRING BACK THE CRUSADES & DEFEAT THESE EVIL FANATICS & MAKE THE WORLD A SAFER PLACE TO LIVE FOR THE NEXT GENERATIONS. TO START WITH THE WESTEN NATIONS MUST WARN THE OIL RICH NATIONS OF THE MIDDLE EAST TO VAOID FINANCING THE TERROROISTS & JIHADISTS. IF THE NATIONS ARE PUT IN THEIR PROPER PLACE THE TERRORIST GROUPS WILL FALL APART.

    THE MUSLIM NATIONS MUST BE WARNED TO RESPECT ALL RELIGIONS & THEY SHOUD OPEN THE DOORS & ALLOW THE BUILDING OF CHURHES, HINDU TEMPLES, SYNAGOGUES, PAGODAS ETC. THE MUSLIMS WANT THE CHRISTIAN NATIONS TO PERMIT THEM FREEDOM OF RELIGION BUT IN THE MUSLIM NATIONS THAT IS CURBED FOR PEOPLE OF OTHER RELIGIONS. YOU CANN CARRY A BIBLE OR ANY RELIGIOUS LITERATURE TO SAUDI ARABIA. WHY IS IT SO & WHY DONT THE POWERFUL WESTERN NATIONS OBJECT TO THAT & PUT PRESSURE ON SAUDI ARABIA TO PERMIT RELIGIOUS FREEDOM?
