Vatican confirms Catholic priest beheaded by Syrian rebels

Catholic Priest Francois MuradOn Sunday, the Vatican confirmed that Islamic rebel forces fighting against the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria had beheaded a Roman Catholic priest.

Jabhat al-Nusra forces accused Father Francois Murad, a Franciscan priest serving in a Northern Syrian monastery, of collaborating with with the Assad regime and summarily executed him, according to Catholic Online.

Father Murad was murdered along with another individual, as yet unnamed, as a crowd of onlookers comprised of of men and boys cheered and took photographs with smartphones. The actual beheadings were not performed swiftly with a sword as one from the West imagines. The executioner used what appeared to be an ordinary kitchen knife, according to The Blaze.

A video of the execution is available through LiveLeak, together with warnings of the graphic nature of the video. I chose not to watch. SOURCE

These are the Syrian Rebels that Barack Hussein Obama wants to give arms to so that they can achieve some kind of victory over the President of the Syrian Arab Republic, Bashar al-Assad.

Now let me make one thing crystal clear; the Syrian Arab Republic is a really fine name, it sounds great, it rolls off of the tongue smoothly, with ease, but Syria is NOT a republic in any sense of the word, nor by any definition.

Bashar al-Assad is vested with sweeping powers that may be delegated, at his sole discretion, to his Vice Presidents. He appoints and dismisses the Prime Minister and other members of the Council of Ministers (the cabinet) and military officers. [1]

In other words, it’s a dictatorship.

Under normal circumstances it would be a good thing to overthrow such a government, but when those that are attempting to stage said overthrow are al-Qaeda, the Taliban or the Muslim Brotherhood, all radical Islamist terror groups that want to overthrow the Syrian president so that they can in turn, institute strict Sharia law, not so much.

The Vatican press release reads:

On Sunday, June 23 the Syrian priest François Murad was killed in Gassanieh, in northern Syria, in the convent of the Custody of the Holy Land where he had taken refuge. This is confirmed by a statement of the Custos of the Holy Land sent to Fides Agency. The circumstances of the death are not fully understood. According to local sources, the monastery where Fr. Murad was staying was attacked by militants linked to the jihadi group Jabhat al-Nusra.

Father François, 49, had taken the first steps in the religious life with the Franciscan Friars of the Custody of the Holy Land, and with them he continued to share close bonds of spiritual friendship. After being ordained a priest he had started the construction of a coenobitic monastery dedicated to St. Simon Stylites in the village of Gassanieh. After the start of the Civil War, the monastery of St. Simon had been bombed and Fr. Murad had moved to the convent of the Custody for safety reasons and to give support to the remaining few, along with another religious and nuns of the Rosary.

These Syrian rebels are the aforementioned militants linked to the jihadi group Jabhat al-Nusra. These are the people that the President of the United States wants to arm so that they can defeat Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and then install a Sharia compliant, America hating Muslim government.

In mid-June, the United States announced that it began supplying direct military aid to Syrian rebel forces in the form of small arms, notwithstanding the fact that of the 9 key rebel forces operating in Syria, 7 are considered Islamic extremists to varying degrees. The most effective of these forces is also the most extremist — the al-Qaida-backed Jabhat al-Nusra.

So, I guess my BIG question is this; should we be supplying arms to people that will overthrow their current leader and then turn their backs, and these weapons on America given the FACT that we, Americans of all faiths, are their sworn enemy?

My 2nd BIG question is this; why hasn’t the United States Congress and Senate stopped Obama dead in his tracks for trying to carry off this *arm the Jihadists* campaign?

Make NO mistake, I blame Obama for this heinous miscarriage of power but I blame BOTH houses of Congress just as much for all that they allow Obama to get by with.

And they wonder WHY Conservative America gives them failing grades.

    Fred it is becoming abundantly clear this body of congressional leaders with the exception of one, Texan Ted Cruz have no intention of trying to slam the door on hussein obama.

    Arming the rebels is tantamount to giving the key to fox so he can get into the chicken coop.. As you said we are giving weapons to ones who HATE & Despise America and Americans as it is….. hussein obama does it because he can and because he is arming his brother muslim extremists….

    To top it off,…he still has 3.5 years left to finish the deed..

    Just try to find any mention of this on the msm is impossible. It is buried, ignored. This should be a major story but no, let’s not inform the country what kind of people obama wants to help. Of course had it been a moslem victim of mob action it would be all over the place to find.

    The answer to your first question is obvious: Hell NO.
    The second is a damn good one. I believe that when people get into congress they suddenly become seduced by the power and forget about the people and the good of the country. They become afraid to do and say what they think is right because they will be called some name and poll numbers will drop. They become sheep following the judas goat. It becomes more important to get re elected. And the stupid voters are too lazy to use any critical thinking (duh, wass dat??) to find out what is the truth, instead they are influenced by big money ads to get their ‘facts’.
    I am slowly getting the feeling that we may be approaching the time: When in the course of human events…

    He is doing just fine destroying American. He and his father hate it and all it stood for.

    I did watch the video up to a point and just like every other time they murder hostages and video it, they start screaming Aloah-Snackbar. These are the animals Obama wants to give arms and support to and then bring to the US.

    Answer to question #1) Hell NO!! #2) Because they are too well-paid by special interest groups and have no guts to stand up for America and We The People!

    It’s difficult to get the American people, and especially the Low Information Voters (LIV’s) to see that the Muslims are NOT our friends!! Very few of us dig for the truth anymore. Instead the LIV’s sit in front of video games, or the LSM and don’t want, much less care, to see the truth in and of the world today.

    As Thomas Jefferson said:

    God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty…. And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.

    Better words than mine. Be safe and stay locked and loaded!!
