U.S. intervention would put Christians at risk

Success - Article sent! close

If we give the Syrian rebels arms they will be used against us some day. The president of Syria never attacked us on 9/11. Any action by the U.S. would be interpreted by the Arabs as a Christian action, and it would lead to Christians being fair game to have the choice of converting to Islam, to leave or to be killed. In every Arab country where we have gotten involved, the Christians suffered. In Iraq alone, 1 million Christians left or were killed. In Afghanistan almost all disappeared. The major heads of the Christian religions are asking the U.S. not to intervene
