Christians in Syria are fleeing genocidal Takfiri terrorists sponsored by Qatar and Saudi

Paul Alster appears to want to turn the world upside down. After all, Christians are fleeing the genocidal Sunni Takfiris being sponsored by Saudi Arabia and Qatar in Syria. Also, do I really have to state that nearly all individuals involved in September 11 came from Saudi Arabia?

Likewise, Hezbollah in Lebanon is in partnership in many areas with the main Christian party in this nation under Michel Aoun. Also, in Syria churches have been rebuilt once the Syrian army re-took control - or when Hezbollah helped to clear the area of al-Qaeda affiliates sponsored by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Obviously, from September 11 to Madrid to Bali it is radical Sunni Islamic terrorist forces behind these barbaric acts. Similarly, it is well known that Gulf petrodollars are fanning radicalism in many parts of the world and the al-Shabaab in Somalia and Boko Haram in Nigeria belong to the same radical Sunni school.

In Afghanistan it is clear that Iran offered the hand of support to America because the Taliban and al-Qaeda hate the Shia - and we know America and Iran worked together in Bosnia against the Bosnian Serbs. In other words, just like the Iran-Contra affair highlights, not all is what it appears between America and Iran and the same applies to the situation in Iraq. Indeed, international Sunni jihadists went to Iraq to kill American troops while the Shia fought to defend themselves and clearly the US enabled the Shia to take over the reigns of power in Iraq.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism is highly valued but some individuals with a pro-Israeli agenda want to distract people from reality and this is dangerous. In America and the UK it is clear that nearly all internal terrorism from Islamists is overwhelmingly from the radical Sunni strand.

The nuclear issue is complex but I would more worry about Pakistan given the reality of al-Qaeda affiliates in this nation alongside the Taliban. Also, it is clear that Pakistan is utilising terrorism in Afghanistan and Kashmir for geopolitical gains and internally Pakistan is in crisis.

Meanwhile, in modern day Saudi Arabia not one single Christian church is allowed and in the Caucasus region many ratlines link the Gulf region to Sunni Islamic terrorism. In Central Asia and the Caucasus region it isn't Iran which is spreading radical Islam - on the contrary, it is powerful Gulf states and Turkey which belong to the Sunni world. Indeed, Iran is a friend of Christian Armenia which suffers greatly because of the economic blockade by Turkey.

The nuclear issue is complex therefore it is best to leave out false propaganda by glossing over Saudi Arabia and its role in international terrorism and spreading radical Salafism. Indeed, the world will be a better place once Gulf petrodollars are challenged and the same applies to the feudal monarchs which spread radical Sunni Islam to many nations. If Paul Alster would like to deny that MI6, BND, CIA - and others - are mainly concerned by radical Sunni Islamic terrorism then please let him do so - then people will understand that this individual is only concerned about Israel and not international terrorism nor the rights of Christians.

Thank you for mentioning that we are dealing with the Islamic Republic of Iran and not just with Iran. This is important because:

there is a world of difference between "Iran" as a nation state, and "The Islamic Republic of Iran." "The Islamic Republic of Iran" is not a nation state in the normal sense of that term. The difference is clear from the Preamble of the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran, one part of which reads as follows: "An Ideological Army In the formation and equipping of the country's defense forces, due attention must be paid to faith and ideology as the basic criteria. Accordingly, the army of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps are to be organized in conformity with this goal, and they will be responsible not only for guarding and preserving the frontiers of the country but also for fulfilling the ideological mission of jihad in God's way; that is, extending the sovereignty of God's law throughout the world (this is in accordance with the Koranic verse "Prepare against them whatever force you are able to muster, and strings of horses, striking fear into the enemy of God and your enemy, and others besides them." [8.60])"

To ask the Ayatollahs to give up their ambitions to acquire nuclear weapons is to ask them to violate their Constitution and their Koran which requires them to acquire "whatever force you are able to muster", -- and that includes nuclear weapons! -- in order to extend Sharia law throughout the world. They will not violate their constitution and their religion. It won't happen. Negotiations and this "deal" are worse than fruitless because they give the ayatollahs time to acquire their nuclear weapons. And then it will be too late. Kerry, of course, understands none of this. You can be sure that he has never troubled himself to read the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
