Bibles called ‘worse than chemical weapons’

A video apparently made by some of the Islamists fighting and killing each other and the population in Syrian reveals quantities of Bibles and biblical materials, such as the Book of John, as a narrator describes them as being “more dangerous than chemical weapons.”

The video appeared yesterday, just as reports were coming out of Syria about how the Islamist rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s army were “liberating” villages, and then forcing Christians there to convert to Islam or be beheaded.

There were statements that Christians were being abducted and executed, although there were conflicting reports.

The new video of the confiscated Bibles was posted by Eretz Zen, who describes himself as a secular Syrian who opposes “having my country turned into a Taliban-like state.”

The video shows stacks of Arabic language Bibles and other books, and a sign that is posted with the warning, “O nation of Muhammad, wake up. For there are things even more dangerous than chemical weapons. Beware the Christianization campaigns.”

The video explains it’s from the region of Jarablus, in Syria.

A voice on the video explains, “They exploit the needs of Syrian citizens in order to spread Christian thought.”

The narrator also described a small bag of communion wafers as a “pork meat derivative,” which is supplied “to fool the gullible children with.”

According to the Eretz Zen site, the footage was from Sept. 3 in the Syrian town of Jarablus on the Turkish border.

Even as the voice of the video was talking about the “Christianization” of individuals, the Mail Online confirmed that Christians were terrified when they reported Syrian rebels ordered them to convert to Islam – on pain of death.

The story cites how opposition forces, including those linked to the terror group al-Qaida, gained control of the Christian village of Maaloula.

“One Maaloula resident said the rebels, many of whom had beards and shouted ‘allahu akbar’ (God is great), attacked Christian homes and churches shortly after moving into the area.”

One Christian said in the Daily Mail report, “I saw the militants grabbing five villagers and threatening them and saying, ‘Either you convert to Islam, or you will be beheaded.’”

The Daily Mail report described Maaloula as a “beautiful mountain village, 25 miles from Damascus.”

The report said the historically Christian village had become a key strategic battleground because of the Syrian civil war.
