US scholar: No more Catholic community in Syria

23 April, 2016

Associate Professor of the Holocaust and Genocide Studies of the New Jersey Stockton
University Elisa von Joeden-Forgey speak about the hostilities committed by the “Islamic State” terrorist group in Iraq and Syria and the necessity of preventing them. In her speech Joeden-Forgey stated that genocide is being committed against the Yazidi people
and Christian minorities in Iraq and Syria by displacing and killing them. “These communities are very small in Syria and Iraq, and it will be very difficult to restore
them after such kind of hostilities. There is a need to conduct serious steps to end this”, “Armenpress” reports, she said.

According to her, “Islamic State” terrorists clearly targeted the Christians and other ethnic groups and massacre them. “They beheaded Yazidi and Christian adult men in Iraq, raped and killed children and women. Today, many of them are in slavery”, US scholar added.

According to her Syrian Catholic community can be already considered eliminated, since some of them were killed, and the others migrated. “Syrian Catholic Archbishop told me that the community is already eliminated since before the Syrian crisis 50.000 Catholics lived in Syria, but now some of them were killed or left Syria”, Joeden-Forgey concluded.

  1. A success story: Obama, Clinton, McCain, and Saudi Arabia created ISIS, and thereby exterminated Christians.

    Saudi Arabia Admits To John Kerry That It Created ISIS… But There Is A Twist

    …But the punchline: Saudi’s admission that it itself created Daesh, or ISIS. As for the twist: as the late Saudi foreign minister says, the Saudis only created ISIS in response to Obama’s disastrous policy in the region.

    To wit: (from )

    After the Iraqi city of Mosul fell to a lightning Isis offensive in 2014, even the late Prince Saud al-Faisal, the respected Saudi foreign minister, remonstrated with John Kerry, US secretary of state, that “Daesh [Isis] is our [Sunni] response to your support for the Da’wa” — the Tehran-aligned Shia Islamist ruling party of Iraq.

    … But that is just part of the story.

    As we revealed last year courtesy of leaked CIA documents, according to investigative reporter Nafeez Ahmed the “leaked document reveals that in coordination with the Gulf states and Turkey, the West intentionally sponsored violent Islamist groups to destabilize Assad, despite anticipating that doing so could lead to the emergence of an ‘Islamic State’ in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

    “According to the newly declassified US document, the Pentagon foresaw the likely rise of the ‘Islamic State’ as a direct consequence of the strategy, but described this outcome as a strategic opportunity to “isolate the Syrian regime.”

    In other words, the Saudis may have created ISIS in response to US foreign policy, but this had been known all too well to the US from the beginning, who not only were “in on it”, but actively groomed the terrorist organization, ostensibly through a clandestine spy organization whose name is conveniently abbreviated to just three letters.

    Which ultimately means that just like Al Qaeda was funded, i.e., created, by Saudi Arabia, so its replacement on the global bogeyman scale, the Islamic State terrorist are nothing more than conveniently puppets, played from day one by the interplay of Saudi and US national interests.
