  • The Damascus Road

    Stained Glass Theatre continues its’ Season of Heroes with The Damascus Road by Ron Boutwell, opening Thursday, February 26th and running through Saturday, March 28th. Saul of Tarsus, persecutor of Christ-followers, was struck by a blinding light on the road to Damascus. This encounter with the Son of God changed his life forever. He became a brave hero of the faith, known by all as the great Apostle Paul, fighting to bring the Gospel to the Gentiles as well as the Jews. Paul took three missionary journeys, planting churches along the way. The letters he wrote to those churches and to individuals like Timothy still guide believers today. During Paul’s service to the Lord, he was mocked, beaten, stoned, jailed, shipwrecked, and ultimately beheaded. He never wavered in his determination to r...

  • The Media Says the US Just Liberated Mosul: Here’s What Really Happened

    The Media Says the US Just Liberated Mosul: Here’s What Really Happened The mainstream media appears to be celebrating ISIS’ recent defeat in Mosul, albeit with some reservations. The media is largely using the word “liberation,” which indicates the people of Mosul have been freed from a monstrous force by a friendly, benevolent one. In reality, the “liberation” of Mosul paints a dark, horrifying picture of America’s foreign policy when one realizes how ISIS took hold of Mosul in the first place. As Anti-Media in summarized in September of last year, the U.S. allowed ISIS to gain control of Mosul quite deliberately: “In June 2014, ISIS crossed the Syrian border into Iraq, effortlessly taking the strategic oil-rich cities of Mosul and Baiji and almost making it as far as Baghdad.

Assad minimizes the importance of Security Council Resolution insisting, "we joined the international agreement for preventing the use and acquirement of chemical weapons before that resolution came to light." While the president asserted that he would comply with every chapter in the agreement without reservations, he again raised the specter of "terrorists"putting obstacles in the way of dismantling and disposing of Syria's chemical weapons. Assad declared his government was always interested in political reform. "It's about the Syrians meeting around the table, discussing the political system that they want, the future of Syria, a...

  • Syrian refugees in Turkey and Jordan express their hopes and reservations for peace talks

    Syrian refugees from two camps in Jordan said on Wednesday that they did not believe an international peace conference that was taking place in Switzerland would do anything to halt the bloodshed in Syria. Delegates from around 40 countries are attending the talks in the Swiss city of Montreux, in the hope of forming a transitional government and putting an end to the nearly three-year-long conflict. Just hours after the conference began, there was a bitter clash over Syrian President Assad's future. John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, said Assad's brutal force had robbed him of all legitimacy. Kerry was followed by Walid al-Moallem, Syria's Foreign Minister, who said no one had the right to remove Assad except the Syrians, and accused the West and neighbouring countries of supplyin...

Wide of summit STORYLINE Iraq refused to endorse the final statement from the Arab League summit in Syria on Sunday because it does not condemn "terrorism" in the war-torn country. Shiite Vice President Adil Abdul-Mahdi says Iraq has "reservations" about the statement because of the lack of a terror condemnation. The Iraqi objections came at the summit's final session, when Arab League chief Amr Moussa read out the "Damascus Declaration," a final joint statement, for the delegations to approve. The statement called on "Iraqi brothers to stop bloodshed immediately and preserve the lives of innocent citizens" and for the hastening of the "end of the foreign presence" in Iraq. The statement read by Moussa also warned against Israel's "policy of blockades and the closing of crossing points" and called on the United Nations to intervene in order to improve humanitarian conditions of the Palestinians. In the joint statement, Arab leaders also mentioned the need for a speedy resolution to the political crisis in Lebanon. Mideast.

Representatives of the Internal Damascus Platform touted the creation of a Syrian "national unity government" during a press conference in Geneva on Tuesday. The group, which represents members of the Syrian internal opposition, had just held talks with UN Special envoy to Syria Staffan de Mistura. Member of the organisation Elian Mousad said the group had proposed "a new regime and a new constitution," which he said would be discussed "in the fourth round [of talks] to be started in May." SOT, Member of the representatives of the Internal Damascus Platform Elian Mousad (Arabic): "We propose the idea [of a national general congress] to solve the question of the interrim period. That is the transitions from an old regime, old constitution, to a new regime and a new constitution." SOT, Member of the representatives of the Internal Damascus Platform Elian Mousad (Arabic): "Mr de Mistura said that it would be important to expand on this idea [of the Internal Damascus Platform's transition plan] and to provide further clarification about this in the fourth round to be started in May. He announced this very clearly, it's not confidential." SOT, Member of the representatives of the Internal Damascus Platform Elian Mousad (Arabic): "Mr de Mistura is a man of peace. His efforts, unfortunately are being sabotaged by many, especially the Riyadh opposition group. They are hotheads. They are behaving in a way that is not encouraging, through their repeated walkouts on the talks." SOT, Member of the representatives of the Internal Damascus Platform (Arabic): "On the national unity government, the idea is political participation because political transition requires a unity of state institutions, what we need is partnership. And what the Riyadh group is proposing is not logical. We believe they are being misguided by certain countries." SOT, Member of the representatives of the Internal Damascus Platform Elian Mousad (Arabic): "Concerning the 12 points, they are not secret, they were publicly announced by Mr de Mistura, we were we able to analyse them and study them very carefully. They are not the product of Mr de Mistura's thinking, but his synthesis of the points of convergence between the various delegations. Of course this outcome was the result of a great effort on his behalf. As to our response, it is all yes, yes, yes, no reservations except on the point of the reform of the army because we believe it is not acceptable to accept in the army, armed battalions as is the case at the moment." SOT, Member of the representatives of the Internal Damascus Platform Elian Mousad (Arabic): "What we said is that some members of the armed factions after the end of hostilities and after there are beginnings of reconciliation, and a return to normal life then these members of the armed factions would become ordinary citizens again." SOT, Member of the representatives of the Internal Damascus Platform Elian Mousad (Arabic): "Concerning direct talks, we have been asking for this since day one. It is not our delegation that has been imposing conditions or putting a veto on this idea. It is up to the UN to decide who among the armed factions or fighters, who is a terrorist or who isn't. We are ready to negotiate when it is decided by the international community and the Syrian state, who is there to negotiate."

But what about today? Like most people, the only time I hear about today's American Indians is when people are outraged about sports mascots or team names, like the Washington Redskins. But sports teams' names are the least of Indians' problems. Did you know that Indians have the highest rate of poverty of any racial group in America? Did you know that alcoholism is more common among Indian youths than among youths in any other ethnic group? Did you know that the rate of child abuse among Indians is twice as high as the national average? Until I visited Indian reservations for my book, The New Trail of Tears, I didn't know any of this. What was at the root of these terrible problems? I wondered. And the deeper I dug, the more I realized that, between the 19th century and today, nothing has changed: it's still the government. The two main agencies that oversee the activities of Indians who live on reservations are the Bureau of Indian Affairs, or BIA, and the Bureau of Indian Education, or BIE. Education, economic development, tribal courts, road maintenance, agriculture and social services – the federal government basically funds and controls all of it. It's no wonder Indians say BIA stands for “Bossing Indians Around.” Together, these two agencies have combined budgets of $3 billion per year, and have 9,000 employees. That's one employee for every 111 Indians on a reservation. Of that $3 billion per year, the BIE uses $850 million of it to educate 42,000 students. That's more than $20,000 per student, compared to a national average of $12,400 per student. Plenty of other federal agencies also have programs for Indians. For instance, the Indian Health Service had a 2015 budget of over $4.6 billion. And yet, there are widespread and documented reports of nurses being unable to administer basic drugs, of broken resuscitation equipment, and of unsanitary medical facilities. Obviously, inadequate funding isn't the problem. The billions of dollars that the federal government spends on Indians every year hasn't made their lives better. In fact, by most measures of economic and social health, the lives of American Indians are only getting worse. Aside from issues of culture, the only way out of this morass is economic growth, but the reservation system makes this almost impossible. Following a series of treaties and laws over many decades – some well intentioned, some not – the federal government decided to hold Indian land “in trust” in order to prevent non-Indians from ever buying that land. But other than Indians, the only people who have things held in trust for them are children and the mentally incompetent.

The Media Says the US Just Liberated Mosul: Here’s What Really Happened The mainstream media appears to be celebrating ISIS’ recent defeat in Mosul, albeit with some reservations. The media is largely using the word “liberation,” which indicates the people of Mosul have been freed from a monstrous force by a friendly, benevolent one. In reality, the “liberation” of Mosul paints a dark, horrifying picture of America’s foreign policy when one realizes how ISIS took hold of Mosul in the first place. As Anti-Media in summarized in September of last year, the U.S. allowed ISIS to gain control of Mosul quite deliberately: “In June 2014, ISIS crossed the Syrian border into Iraq, effortlessly taking the strategic oil-rich cities of Mosul and Baiji and almost making it as far as Baghdad. Amid the terror group’s frightening victory, they uploaded images and footage of drive-by-shootings, large-scale death marches, and mass graves (following the mass executions of Iraqi soldiers). “ISIS militants claimed massive quantities of American military equipment, including entire truckloads of humvees, helicopters, tanks, and artillery as their own. This was no secret to Washington, or even the world, as the militants photographed and recorded themselves and publicly flaunted their activity on social media.” Was there a good reason the American military sat on its hands despite knowing full well that this was going on? As Anti-Media explained further: “What did the U.S. do in response? Nothing. In spite of all the American bases in Iraq and the government’s ability to perform all manner of illicit activity — including assassinating Muammar Gaddafi in Libya using a drone that was flown out of Sicily by a pilot who operated the vehicle from a naval base in Nevada‚ the U.S. couldn’t do anything to stop ISIS rapid advancements. Was there a problem preventing the U.S. military from conducting air strikes? Clearly not, as the U.S. had been launching drone strikes in Pakistan at around the same time ISIS advanced.” The U.S. allowed ISIS to gain this significant portion of territory before moving into Iraq with an air war that was designed to pave the way for a segued operation into Syrian territory. The U.S. couldn’t justify an intervention into Syria without going into Iraq first, and this was quite clearly the underlying intention of this operation the whole time, as evidenced by the U.S.’ obsession with the Syrian conflict throughout both the Obama and Trump administrations. Since the U.S. moved back into Iraq in 2014, the U.S. has dropped 84,000 bombs in Iraq and Syria up until the end of May 2017. As Counterpunch explains, this is nearly three times the number of bombs and missiles dropped on Iraq during George W. Bush’s “Shock and Awe” campaign in 2003. Monitoring group Airwars’ currently estimates that the minimum number of civilians killed by the U.S. led coalition’s campaign in Iraq and Syria has reached roughly 4,354 since the operation began in 2014. The number is likely higher, but we will never know the exact total because up until a month ago, the U.S. only had two personnel investigating casualties in Iraq and Syria full time. Under President Trump, the number of bombs being dropped increased rapidly after Trump gave complete control to the military generals on the ground to call in airstrikes with little oversight. One such air raid in Mosul saw close to 300 civilians die, and the fact that the strike had been called in by Iraqi forces on the ground demonstrates the immense amount of scope that Trump has delegated to call in airstrikes with little regard to international law and the principle of proportionality. The battle for Mosul also drew in Iran-backed Shia militias, who have been known to terrorize Iraq’s Sunni population (including torturing civilians). No one doubts that ISIS is a brutal and abhorrent group, but the people who are supposedly “liberating” the local population — whether it’s the U.S. military, the Iraqi armed forces, or the various militia on the ground — appear to be no better. Now that these Iran-backed militias have firmly planted themselves in Iraq, the U.S. is left with an ultimate dilemma of how to kick them out and counter Iran’s expanding influence. In all seriousness, the battle for Mosul is only paving the way for further occupation and laying the groundwork for America to pursue its regional ambitions in its never-ending quest to confront Iran. According to the U.N., more than 742,000 Iraqis have fled the battle in Mosul, with approximately 10,000 new civilians fleeing every day. For a country that hates refugees, the U.S. certainly plays a significant role in creating an endless supply of them. And for those civilians still trapped in the city, their lives will never be the same. As Airwars explains:

I wish you all the best", Rainews24's Director Monica Maggioni tells Syrian President Bashar al-Assad at the conclusion of her interview broadcast Sunday. Assad minimizes the importance of Security Council Resolution insisting, "we joined the international agreement for preventing the use and acquirement of chemical weapons before that resolution came to light." While the president asserted that he would comply with every chapter in the agreement without reservations, he again raised the specter of "terrorists"putting obstacles in the way of dismantling and disposing of Syria's chemical weapons. Assad declared his government was always interested in political reform. "It's about the Syrians meeting around the table, discussing the political system that they want, the future of Syria, and whatever they agree upon, you'll have a referendum in order to have the endorsement of the Syrian people regarding whatever part of the future of Syria, whether it's the constitution, or laws, or whatever," the president told the Italian broadcaster. "That's what we've been doing since the beginning of the crisis, and this is the same action that we're going to continue, "Assad insisted even as he ruled out sitting at a negotiating table with the Syrian Coalition since they had called for foreign intervention in the wake of the August chemical weapons attack on the Eastern Damascus suburbs. "Yeah, of course. We need the reform," said Assad who ends the interview by musing that he "could be the hope of the Syrians, not any other one."

However, Democratic Representative Jim Himes has a few reservations and says "I'm still very skeptical about the President's proposal and is not clear on the outcome." http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/3d281c11a96b4ad082fe88aa0db04305/Article_2013-09-03-US-United-States-Syria/id-13585ae9422e4d309613a25a6d3cefd7 http://www.wochit.com

Syrian refugees from two camps in Jordan said on Wednesday that they did not believe an international peace conference that was taking place in Switzerland would do anything to halt the bloodshed in Syria. Delegates from around 40 countries are attending the talks in the Swiss city of Montreux, in the hope of forming a transitional government and putting an end to the nearly three-year-long conflict. Just hours after the conference began, there was a bitter clash over Syrian President Assad's future. John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, said Assad's brutal force had robbed him of all legitimacy. Kerry was followed by Walid al-Moallem, Syria's Foreign Minister, who said no one had the right to remove Assad except the Syrians, and accused the West and neighbouring countries of supplying weapons and foreign fighters to the rebellion, garnering criticism from the US and United Nations Chief, Ban Ki-Moon. The fighting in Syria has killed more than 130-thousand people and left millions of refugees, either in camps or squats in neighbouring countries or within Syria's borders. Many of the refugees agree there's little hope of a breakthrough during talks. "We don't trust the international conference (Geneva 2 talks), we didn't get any benefits from Geneva I conference, the bloodshed and killing is still going on, we don't expect anything from this conference," said Zuhair Abu Kharoub, Syrian refugee from Daraa. Regardless of the outcome over the next 10 days, they want Assad to be held accountable. "After he killed, slaughtered and displaced people, he must be held accountable," Kharoub said. But another man, who did not give his name and kept his face covered said, "We know our regime, Bashar, our regime is repressive, and it's impossible that the regime will leave peacefully, if the regime believe in peace we won't see such bloodshed." While talks continue, so does the bloodshed with Syria's state media reporting clashes between government forces and opposition fighters in the suburbs of Damascus, Daraa, Idlib and Aleppo.
