Bruce Charlton, Comment 11, offers a very insightful assessment of current world events:
The covert but implict aim of US/ UK/ EU/ UN etc. interventions in Syria (like other places) seems to be the elimination of Christianity in the Middle East.
Despite 1400 years of Islam, the religion had survived in considerable numbers as as a large minority, until the ‘Arab Spring’…
…Apparently, the Western powers have achieved in less than a decade what more than 1000 years of Islam did not.
I have heard a detailed first hand report of the Middle East situation for Christians from a trustwothy and experienced eyewitness that details all this, but see also:
The historicists I have read predicted that in our days there would be a worldwide alliance aimed at destroying true Christianity once and for all. This seems to fit. May the devil’s empire fall swiftly and soon.
