SYRIA: Two more churches attacked and burned, crosses destroyed, black flag of al-Qaeda raised


Al-Qaeda linked ‘Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant’ (ISIL) broke the crosses off the two Christian churches in Raqqah, a city in northern Syria.  They also set the contents of the churches — the Church of the Annunciation and the Church of Martyrs — aflame, and lifted the Islamic flag above them.

Raymond Ibrahim  Yesterday, members of the Islamic organization first broke the large cross from off the Church of the Annunciation.  This prompted the residents of Raqqah to march and protest, calling for the expulsion of the Islamic terrorists, while carrying the large, broken cross (see video here, around :38 second mark).


The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant responded by attacking the Church of the Annunciation once again, gathering all its crosses and icons from inside, and setting them on fire.  They capped off their “victory” by raising the ISIL flag—which is identical to al-Qaeda’s black flag with the words, “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger” (the Islamic shehada, or profession of faith).

The same flags were raised on some of the 80 Christian churches destroyed in Egypt weeks earlier at the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters.

After the desecration of the Church of the Annunciation came the Church of the Martyr’s turn.  It was treated in the same manner, also with Islam’s black flag raised atop its dome in place of the broken cross.

  1. I don’t expect Russia to sit idly by as fellow Orthodox Christians are slaughtered. They realise that O will do nothing so may give he Syrian army more than they need to stop the chaos and murder done by the FSA/AlQaeda

    • Yes, popes are the one of the biggest reason behind these ignorance, i mean, christianity and islam are fighting for centuries now. And it seems like both will vanish together. Considering that they both were forced from start on others. 2nd thing, they don’t accept any reforms, like Jews did, so Jews are respected than these 2(christian, islam)..

      • NO, Christianity was NOT “forced on others from the start!” Christian Jews (and all the earliest Christians were Jews, just as Christianity is still the largest branch of reformed Judaism) were persecuted and executed in Roman arenas, until the Roman emperor Constantine converted to Christianity on his death-bed. From then on, European kings and their subjects willingly converted to curry favour at court.

        Europe was indeed conquered by the sword – but only by the PAGAN Romans first!

  2. MSgt Mike…. I don’t even put my feet on my furniture and I own it. I am wondering what is it going to take to tip this obama over? If it doesn’t happen soon I will just wait for the battle to begin and it will sooner than later. We will be fighting muslims & SOME blacks NOT ALL who have been made brain dead due to a weak school system & a weak religious system. Checkout “White Girl Bleeds A Lot,” by Colin Flaherty. BLACK ON WHITE CRIME ISN’T BEING REPORTED BY MSM.

  3. Did You Think They Were KIDDING when they said the flag would fly on the WH? Odumbo believes talks w/Iran can work??? Sure they can….as long as they use you as their B*TCH!

  4. Bob Beckel on the fox show the five today said he received a phone call from the justice dept to cease his campaign against mosques being built here in the U S mentioned a government fatawa threat if he did not , many signs are fast moving in to place for anarchy beware Patriots stay close

  5. Huck Folder – what a great handle. LOL.

    Any who, I have never loathed a group of people, all of them, like the Muslims. I don’t even want to hear “…but it’s not all of…” stop, enough. I won’t deal with them, hire them, say hello to them. I’m done.

    Plus, they hate dogs, how screwed up is that. BNI, where’s your donate button? Oh, there it is…ok…

      • Disturbing, very disturbing. Words can’t express…

        You can’t hide from the truth and that’s one reason why I appreciate BNI greatly. I pass this site to everyone I know, especially those who try to defend the muzzie hoard.

    • I am a former Muslim left that demonic religion for good , its a truly a satanic and violent religion, I beg every patriotic American to rise and to stop this malignant cancer from spreading in the US. I know Islam and does not belong here .

        • Well said, and so true! No problem was ever solved by ignoring it, and we aren’t doing even any of the moslems (whose own ancestors were among Muhammad’s first victims) any favours by going along with any of their historic lies and alibi excuses for their crimes. We must free them from their “Slaves of allah” birth curse.

      • Here’s islam’s “holy Message from god” as exemplified by the collective words and deeds of it’s Founder:

        “I will save humanity by lying to, extorting, torturing, robbing, burning out of their homes, kidnapping and ransoming, enslaving, raping and murdering everyone who even only verbally disagrees with me – and you can, too!”


        Muhammad was really only a con-man and bandit-king, an arch-criminal who always blamed “god” for his own penchant for committing crimes. If Moe got away with committing a crime (and he tried them all, enthusiastically, more than once, but instead of ever showing contrition, bragged about how much fun it was to commit them, and advised everyone else to join in the fun, too), then it was held to be “obvious” that “god” wanted him to get away with having committed those crimes!

        So, islam is not a “religion” (at all, much less one “of peace”) nor is it a “race” (at all, much less one of “Poor, Oppressed, People Of Colour”)!

        Obviously, islam is ONLY an ancient, ongoing extortion-racket CRIME-syndicate, and the only “religious” part in it, is where they say:

        “God told us to commit these crimes!”



        We should simply BAN ISLAM – because everything moslems pretend to consider “holy” is already a crime!


  6. All I can think is that Allah must be synonymous with satan. There could not be a real God that would want you to tear down what he has created thru man.

    Watch out, Liberals…we are all next if we don’t accept their ideology. They are getting stronger by the day as our government continues to back them and send them more money while you keep drinking the kool-aid and falling for the lies that BO spews forth.

    BO does not want us to have guns, but he can’t get enough guns, bombs, missiles, etc into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels and the muslim brotherhood. How can you reconcile that logic? I guess the gun owners of the USA are more feared than the mexican cartels and the baby-beheading, murderous, monsters called muslims.

    Welcome to the world where nothing makes sense.

  7. When I saw the pic of the Muslims in SYRIA carrying the black flags of jihad I was INSTANTLY reminded of the pics of the Muslims carrying the white and black flags of jihad in NEW YORK CITY Muslim Day Parade 2013
    BARENAKEDISLAM: ‘HIGHLIGHTS’ of the NYC Muslim Day Parade 2013

    I commented on this horrifying betrayal of Americans: Something is terribly, terribly wrong with America. New York’s finest, New York police march in the parade with Muslims carrying the murderous white and black flags of jihad. It is frightening. New York City officials must make a public announcement very soon as to why they want to ENCOURAGE Muslims to wage jihad against our people.

    New York City police officers marching with Muslims carrying the murderous white and black flags of jihad gives the appearance of American leaders’ FULL APPROVAL of jihad against our people. We are betrayed.

    New York city, state, and federal officials must make a public statement soon.

    ‘London Bird’ responded:

    I really think America has lost the battle. It’s bad in London, but NYC??? I’m mortified by these images. They are basically sticking two fingers up to them. What the hell is going on? I’m not going to be able to sleep tonight I’m so annoyed. I never, ever thought that America would allow it to happen on their streets. No more NYC for me that’s for sure.

  8. Is this not a ‘crusade’ by islamists? Ethnic cleansing?

    What statements have cair or the mb or obuMBoy made on this topic?

    Or McCain or Graham?
