Free Syrian Army

Breaking the silence because history is repeating itself *( disturbing images )

Like most things in life we don’t know what we don’t know. If Main stream media do not bring it to our attention we can easily go through life unaware of atrocities and without the full picture of what is really going on in the world. A group called Rescue Christians is doing all they can to bring what is happening to the world’s attention but since the below article is from March last year and I haven’t seen it reported in the MSM any where, I think it is safe to assume that they are not succeeding. This is a disturbing story with disturbing images and links to videos so be prepared. History is repeating itself and the Media are missing in action. Just as the Holocaust was not given prominent coverage by newspapers, these systematic slaughter centres are also being ignored.

March 2014

We report this story because of the silence on the systematic killing of Christians, Shiite minorities and even Sunni Muslims in Syria who disagree with the Takfirist theology. The story is reminiscent of the initial reporting on the extermination of European Jewry and other minorities when little coverage was given to the truth in those days.

We predict that history will repeat itself in the case of Christians in Syria and Iraq.

A Guest Post – Psychological Warfare

Another murdered hostage, and another bleak day.

It is true that good people die every day and it is absolutely appalling to hear the news ? whether it is gun violence on the street, domestic violence in family homes, or ISIS executions.? What ISIS is doing though is hitting our western sensibilities via the ?method? and this is of course their intent.? Kidnap an innocent, let the world see him plead, listen to his family implore compassion, listen to our politicians make statements, murder that hostage in a grievous way, and then introduce us to the next hapless victim.? Then repeat the cycle, and with the Internet we can all see this in our homes and our governments can?t prevent that.? We all talk about it and we are uncertain of the future and many of us are scared.? Some of the locals, not many mind you, agree with this method for their own reasons and start to talk amongst themselves about this extreme tangent and feel empowered to take out whatever grievance they may have and join the cause ? either locally or in the Middle East.? Don?t assume for one moment this is not a highly organised game of psychological warfare going on here.? To give all of us some credit I think we all know this. ? Read more »

Coming soon to New Zealand?

This is one of the perils of widespread immigration where those coming here bring their old country’s attitudes and prejudices with them.

It was not so much a death threat as a declaration of war.

”You wanna go to war, you f—in’ Shia dogs?” the phone message says. ”We’re taking all of you to war, in Sydney and overseas!”

It was 8pm and Jamal Daoud, an aspiring politician from Auburn was having dinner with his wife and children. An outspoken critic of the Free Syrian Army, Daoud is accustomed to abuse but this call was more frightening than most.

‘You wanna kill our brothers and sisters overseas, we’re gonna kill you motherf—ers here,” the caller says.

Weapons of the Free Syrian Army

Despite military supplies from the Russians, Assad’s forces have by no means an advantage over the Free Syrian Army almost 2 years into the unrelenting and often brutal civil war. The Rebels have proven themselves to be innovative and showing some outstanding initiative in developing their own effective but sometimes dangerous looking weapons in their fight against the dictator and his supporters.

Here are some of their developed weapons:
