    Good Lord! Sure that is not what they meant when they said Christmas is a holy (holey) day… How terribly sad.

      America and the West will be very angry to see a Christmas tree in Homs.
      America and the West have tried so hard to topple president Assad and turn whole Syria into an ISIS and muslim-brotherhood controlled state. Pray that America, the West and their jihadist allies fail their evil campaign to install a jihadist state in Syria and to instigate a religious genocide against Christians and other minorities there.

  • How sad that the tent (?) Christmas tree is the only spot of colour in this.

    Take a good look- one won’t see it next year.

  • Everyone Else

    Please note the Christmas tent is in the government-controlled part of Syria. Bashar al-Assad has run in INCLUSIVE regime for decades. Why does Obama want to kill the only INCLUSIVE leader in the Arab world, the only leader who protects minority rights? Is Obama on our side or is he another soldier for Islam?

    That’s heartening.

    The 2 nations that respect Christianity and other minorities (Israel and Syria) are the 2 we are told to hate and despise.
    You figure it – I can’t!
