  1. Church of Sts Sergius and Bacchus in Ma’loula destroyed by militants

    Militants have destroyed the ancient Christian Church of Holy Martyrs Sergius and Bacchus in Ma’loula and have stolen or demolished its world-famous icons. A correspondent of ITAR-TASS agency saw it for himself on September 29.

    This construction, which was the oldest in the Middle East, had been built in the early 4th century. There was a convent here lately; but after the coming of the terrorists and militants of Al-Nusra Front a month ago the sisters found refuge in the Convent of St. Thecla, Equal-to-the-Apostles, where at the present time they are taking shelter from the militants together with 40 orphaned children.

  2. The above will happen here as well. Our identity and culture, Western civilisation itself, rests on Christian foundations. Therefore Muslims will destroy churches and cathedrals, once they have the opportunity. No doubt of it, absolutely certain. Its koran/hadiths mandated.

  5. TURKEY – ANKARA – Hizb ut Tahrir rally calling for the re-establishment of the Islamic caliphate :

    From the liveleak page :

    These kinds of rallies have been growing, not just in turkey, but all over the muslim world, including in indonesia, malaysia, pakistan, bangladesh and ect.
    these kinds of rallies would have never happened in turkey 30 years ago, the fascist secular state would have imprisoned and tortured them, but now these western puppet seculars leaders in muslim world are losing power, and the people are calling for the reestablishment of caliphate, 100 years after it was destroyed.
    this will happen, and it will happen withing the next 10 years if not sooner, and when it does, the west can say bye bye to its military bases and there wont be anymore stealing of rescources

  6. Since the ‘ghost train’ needed a ‘special key’ and the know-how to use it, the field of suspects must be limited to employees and their contacts.

  7. #2 Actions like this will continue and to our great shame the western governments will do nothing.

    #4 I don’t know about now but all engines use to be fitted with a dead man switch, if the engine driver didn’t keep the hand latch closed or the foot pedal all the way down the breaks would engage.
