ORONTES WEBSITE REPORTS: These are the fruits of “revolution” in Syria

LEVANT REPORT EDITOR’S NOTE: Excellent reporting and news roundup by Orontes: Syrian Christians in a Time of Conflict. The Orontes website is a reliable source for all those desiring news and information on the plight of Syria’s Christians from an insider’s perspective. The world has forgotten Syria’s Christians and other religious minorities – the world has ignored common Syrians who continually voice demands for a stable, safe, pluralistic, and secular Syria. But we must not ignore what’s happening daily – please join us in spreading the truth about the character and nature of “opposition” fighters in Syria. Remember especially that the governments of the United States, Britain, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar are training, arming, and funding the rebel insurgency in Syria – and this by their own admission! Speaking as an American veteran (USMC 2000-2004), I am shocked by what my country is doing. This has nothing to with Assad and his crimes and shortcomings, but it has everything to do with U.S. leaders choosing to further destabilize Syria while arming radical groups that are accountable to no one – a return to the American backed death squads of 1980’s Central America.

                                                                                                                                                   In Raqqa, Syria ISIS terrorists force all women, Muslim and Christian alike to live under a Talabin like interpretation of Sharia law which includes a harsh dress code.

Raqqa Syria – “all sisters to wear the full-face veil in public, in line with Islamic morality. Women must wear Islamic dress, which consists of the full-face veil and an abaya to cover  the whole body, in addition to gloves. Women are not allowed to raise their voices in the street or walk at a late hour without a male guardian.” -ISIS

Screen capture  form a video showing the kidnapped nuns from the convent of St Tekla, Maaloula.                                                                                                                                             Contact has been lost with the nuns of Syria’s Maloula town abducted by armed opposition groups in northern Damascus city of Qalamoun, according to a source familiar with the negotiations on Thursday.

The source said that the nuns are likely to have been transferred out of Yabroud city.

“Contact has been lost with the nuns since yesterday, and probably they have been transferred to an area between Yabroud and the Lebanese border,” he told Agence France-Presse.

“Contacts are underway to determine their destiny and to secure their safety, and religious authorities will issue a statement soon about this fateful humanitarian issue.”

The source pointed out that the nuns had been kidnapped from the monastery of Mar Takla in Maloula by a group of al-Nusra Front terrorists, led by a man calling himself Abu Malek al-Kuwaiti, who has contacts with them while detained in a house in Yabroud.

“The 14 detained are 13 Lebanese nun and one Syrian, in addition to three women working in the monastery, which was concerned in orphaned children,” he explained.

He also said the kidnappers requested during this long period of negotiation a group of demands which are “difficult to achieve” in order to release the detainees.

“Among those demands are the release of Syrian women from the regime prisons, withdrawal of the Syrian army from Christian religious sites such as Saidnaya, and getting supplies, especially bread, in addition to the military demands regarding the Yabrood battle.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Levant) ISIS who have imposed strict Taliban like Sharia law on the inhabitants of Raqqa city are  said to have arrested 10 school girls aged between 15 and 17 years old. They were arrested outside their schools for violating elements of the new laws imposed by ISIS.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Although the students were clothed in accordance with the dictates of the terrorists, their eyebrows and/or some hair was visible and this  was sufficient for the fanatics to detain them for breaking the new laws. One among the school staff was also arrested and afterwards had to be hospitalized, possibly due to a beating received while detained.
