Sectarian violence in Syria spread into Lebanon

At least three people have been killed and up to 45 wounded in clashes in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli.

Sectarian violence between the Alawite tribe and other Muslims in Syria spread into Northern Lebanon.

Fighting began Monday night and continued into Tuesday on Syria Street, the symbolic “dividing line” between the Sunni Muslim district of Bab al-Tabbaneh and the Alawite neighborhood of Jabal Mohsen in the predominantly Sunni city.

An estimated 10 Lebanese soldiers were injured in the fighting. Violence has periodically occured in Lebanon over the Syrian conflict, and concerns that the war will spillover into neighboring countries are heightened.

The fighting has come less than a week after a series of abductions of Syrians and Turkish nationals in Lebanon by the Meqdad clan. The Megdad clan kidnapped the group to exchange them with 12 Lebanese citizens held hostage by opposition forces in Syria.

My comment:

The Middle East is a tinder box, reedy to explode into violence.

The reason behind this violence is despotic rule since the Arabian world got independence from colonial rulers from 1930-onwards.

The Muslim world has no traditions for submission to human rights and democracy.  They are told to submit to Islam.

Jesus told us what kind of a fruit Islam is. A bad three can simply not bear good fruits.

 Matthew 7:18
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

Lebanon was the Paris of the Middle East till Islam started to re-concur this predominately Christian nation from 1974.  The fruits of Pax-French colonialism in the Middle East have been bad.

  1. From what I have read on here the past few days, of a truth the Middle East is a Tender Box about to explode….Yet “How come” this news is not a main topic on the National, Local News …it seems it’s another area that is shelved ….any reason why? or could it be it’s not Israel doing the bombing? or they could not lie and say it’s Israel against the poor Muslim factions?

  2. You left out ”the rape of a 7 year old little girl….” You do have time if you will repent and turn to Jesus Christ…. I see you could not answer a simple question that only required a ‘Yes or No’ answer…that’s sad! and pitiful…it also shows as The Lord Jesus said, you don’t come to Him because you love your sins more than HIM….that too is sad…
