Keeping Up With The Saudis… 5th Century Catholic Monastery Destroyed By ISIS

Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) militants have destroyed a historic monastery seized in their latest advance across central Syria.

Photographs appeared online of fighters from Isil with bulldozers at the Mar Elian monastery in Al-Qaryatain, in Homs province.

The monitoring group Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said the Catholic monastery was then destroyed “on the pretext that it was used for worshipping others than God”.


Note that our “ally” Saudi Arabia does not allow churches at all in its satanic kingdom – how is that any different from ISIS?

There is no such thing as an Islamic ally any more than exists a “moderate Islam”.

    ISIS and other islamic jihadist groups in that region were created, armed and funded by America and Nato to get rid off secular Arab dictators such as Qaddafi and Assad and to bring ‘liberal democracy’ to those countries.
