SYRIA CRISIS: Syrian Archbishop speaks out against Obama and proposed US regime aggression

Archbishop Karim gave a wide ranging and sobering evaluation of any outside attack on Syria. Very disturbing are his remarks on the level of Jihadi involvement amongst the so-called opposition. Saudis, Kuwaitis, Chechens - even self-styled Mujahadeen from Europe and America - by the hundreds are pouring into Syria - murdering, maiming, torturing and slaughtering (including throwing poeple out of apartment buildings to their deaths) - not only Christians - but Muslims who do not subscribe to their purist version of Islam. The fact remains that the Christian community has survived under the present arrangement. 

UPDATE: Putin claims that Russia has halted arms shipment to Syria. In fact, when hostilities began both Putin and Obama should have immediately imposed and enforced an embargo. For various geo-political motives (more for Putin, as Obama's foreign policy is not to have one) this was not done - invariably allowing Jihadi sects to penetrate into Syria. Putin has cleverly won the moral high ground just prior to the G20; making Obama out to be a complete political neophyte and fool.
