During World War II any intelligent person wondered how a belief in Christianity whose founder preached peace and love could wind up approving at the deaths of millions. Millions have not yet died in Syria, “only? thousands are dead at the hand of President Assad and his merry gang of bullies. The past several weeks have witnessed nonstop artillery fire directed against the city of Homs. The latest episode involves the death of many babies who were born prematurely and needed special assistance to live. Alas, the beat of death and destruction will not cease.
What is missing concerning the war in Syria is the silence and refusal to act by those of the Muslim faith or in nations which are Muslim to the core. Russia, which blocks UN efforts to take action against the criminal regime of President Assad, will not back down since they prefer selling goods to Russia.
