Syrian jihadist rebels kill Christians, drain and sell their blood?

More news of the Religion of Peace from WND:

Vials from beheading victims ‘going for $100,000’

NEW YORK – Atrocities by Syrian jihadist rebels have reached sensational new levels, according to a revered nun working with persecuted Christians and an explosive new video report.

Sister Hatune Dogan told WND in a Skype interview that members of the Syrian opposition are draining the blood of Christians they behead and selling vials to Islamic radicals for $100,000 a piece.

The Syrian Orthodox nun explained that the blood is used in a ritual washing of hands in the belief the act atones for sins and provides privileged access to heaven.

The Christians, she said, are beheaded in ceremonies in which they are forced to kneel, with their hands and feet bound, as the Muslim radicals read a death sentence imposed because the victim refuses to renounce Christianity and embrace Islam.

She detailed how the head of the victim is brutally severed with knives. The blood spurting from their necks is captured in basins and then bottled.

“The Muslims sever the necks and collect the blood in vessels to sell the blood. The Muslims believe that if they kill a Christian and wash their hands in the blood of the Christian, they will go to heaven,” she explained.

She said the sale of the Christian blood “is a big business.”

“With this money, the Muslim terrorists can buy more weapons,” she explained.

One wonders if and when there will be a showdown in the Middle East.  Will anyone defend Christians?  What shall be the fate of Israel in a nuclearized Islamic region?  When will the first dirty bombs be used and where? I doubt whether, today, anyone in these USA or Europe… Europe? HAH!… has the political will.

Sts. Nunilo and Alodia, pray for us.

    Remind me, are these the ‘rebels’ on whose behalf our governments want us to go to war?

    There is an irony in Muslims wandering around with (please God) relics of Christian martyrs round their necks.

    Our only hope is that God answers our prayers in this regard. He heard the Hebrews cry in Egypt and sent Moses. What we have going on in America’s White House and in most other heads of nations has only made the situation worse. Now the barbarians know that no one who can do anything about it cares or will act. It is shocking to see Christians abandoned entirely and subjected to genocide while the world looks the other way. God help them, because our country won’t, not with this guy in office. Meanwhile the immigration floodgates are wide open and too many say “Let everyone in!”. Dang fools and Democrats.

    Oh how I long for the days when Europe was great among the nations of the world. Europa Regina Culturarum, my humble attempt at Latin. :)

    Ethnic cleansing of a few Christian villages has been reported since the beginning of this conflict. Of course, our CIA, SecState and Obama haven’t a clue of what goes on in this area – and the Arabs know it, which makes it worse. Saudi Arabia is also a player in this region and detests the current Syrian government for being the “wrong” branch of Islam. The Islamic militants roaming the area have been supported by the US and Saudi Arabia, so it is unlikely that any other organization (e.g., the UN or Arab League) or country (with the possible exception of Russia) will do anything, though it is already spreading into Lebanon (again) and the ever-present threat to Israel is ratching up.

  5. OrthodoxChick says:

    These Muslim terrorists are washing their hands in the blood of the real matyrs for the Truth. Oh yeah, they’ll be going someplace distinct when they die – but it won’t be to Heaven. I know we’re supposed to weep over every soul lost to damnation, but it’s hard to muster up a tear for such flagrant, heinous evil-doers.

  6. Sonshine135 says:

    Remind me. Weren’t these the same rebels that were going to get aid from the US Government? I haven’t forgotten.

  7. St Donatus says:

    Rather than just complaining, how can we help our brothers over there? Any ideas?

  8. Johnno says:

    Yup! Remember! These are the same poor little wittle people that that meanie Assad and the legitimate Syrian government are trying to stop. But the American, British and select EU administrations alongside the Saudis are all for it! The same arms they want to confiscate from their citizens at home, they are providing to these monsters! INCLUDING chemical weapons! How do you think those Islamic rebels got it in the first place? Then they tried to frame Assad for it, and rope us into another war.

    Obama and company aren’t ignorant. They’re lying to you! But they are a privileged elite above the law so we can’t do anything about it other than play our little spin-the-bottle election games and maybe file a complaint which will go in the back of a file drawer somewhere.

    Only Russia knows what’s up which is why they’re currently getting hit with terrorist attacks from regional Islamic militants, but Obama and co don’t care because Russia is being oh so mean to the homosexuals by denying them access to vulnerable children.

    Our Lady of Fatima and Sr Lucia will be proven right, when every nation on earth is communist, while Russia alone will be the last surviving Christian nation outside of Vatican City which may or may not still be around at the rate things are going. Pope Francis ought to draw up emergency plans to flee to Moscow and get a room beside Snowden. The love and tolerance brigade currently waving palms in the air for him, will turn around and crucify him once, much to their continual amazement, it turns out that the Pope is still Catholic.

    Sounds like we need a few “culture warriors” to speak out.

  10. gertrude says:

    I will pray that the blood of these martyrs haunts their sleep and changes their hearts! Holy Father, have mercy on us all.

  11. Supertradmum says:

    Muslims from the West will join in the chaos of failed Broke Big Brother Europe. Chinese from the East taking over Broke Big Brother America. I give it a maximum of six years. If one is not preparing spiritually now, one will fail in the very hard times to come.

  12. Rachel Pineda says:

    Pray fast and do penance. I think and fear if we do not we may be guilty in some part as well. Someone asked what we can do. I ask myself that almost everyday. For now my children and I pray everyday for our brothers and sisters over in the Middle east, Africa and Asia. We pray for peace but we also pray for them to have the strength and faith of Martyrs so that if they will not renounce the Faith and receive a martyr’s crown. They need a lot of prayers in their suffering. We also pray for the conversion of our enemies hearts.

    Just think, there are people who cannot relax and have a cup of tea with a friend. Or mothers who cannot lay down in the afternoon and admire their sweet newborn’s face or give their children proper nutrition and medicine for common illnesses let alone serious ones. Father’s who feel helpless to protect their families and the elderly who are reeling from what it happening to their beloved homelands that they thought their grandchildren would inherit! In refugee camps people are living in extreme poverty, uncertainty uncomfortable and cold conditions. Pray for them to have the strength of martyrs and pray for mercy on us and our nation.

    “Meanwhile the immigration floodgates are wide open and too many say “Let everyone in!”. Dang fools and Democrats.”
    My thoughts also. We know from people living on the border – some who can sit on their porch and see them flooding across- that they see many that are not necessarily Hispanic. Chavez had promised to help Iran with that. If he did I am sure that is continuing–along with all of the children that are being brought over by the cartels(for human trafficking) and parents to take advantage of the “amnesty” law that they have been told will be passed. The safety of the American people isn’t important–it’s all about votes and lies. This administration is not about protecting Christians-period.

    “It is shocking to see Christians abandoned entirely and subjected to genocide while the world looks the other way.”
    This has happened once before–during living memory. We vowed -Never again–yet here it is.

  15. NBW says:

    I agree with Gertrude; they should be haunted by the blood of the martyrs.

    Their purpose for using the blood seems very satanic .

    We need to pray and fast a lot more..

  16. jeffreyquick says:

    Sorry, Father, but I find this incredible. It smacks too much of the “Boche bayonet Belgian babies” line of WWI. I’m to believe that there are enough terrorists with an extra $100K for a first-class seat in Heaven to make a market? I’m not calling the sister a liar; I think she believes what she’s peddling. But the unvarnished truth is horrifying enough, and varnishing it makes it less horrible, not more.

  17. Dr Guinness says:

    I wonder if they know that selling relics is a sin? =P

  18. James Joseph says:

    The same thing is done during the eeeed time of year, but with animals. Every boy over 12.

    Source: I have supervised the (very inhumane) halal slaughter of calves at the slaughterhouse I was at out in the Rockies before I traveled to New England.

  19. Venerator Sti Lot says:

    If “too many say ‘Let everyone in!’ ” some western governments have apparently made an exception where Syrian Christians are concerned (or so I read in recent reports about Christians who had escaped to Jordan being denied visas by western embassies).

  20. Priam1184 says:

    Yeah Father I’ve been thinking that the Middle East is going to completely blow up (as in WWII in Europe type blowing up) for quite some time now. A lot of the region is already blown up, but Israel hasn’t been sucked in yet which is what is keeping the veneer of stability over things. But it is coming though when where and how exactly is God’s alone to know it seems.

    And in other news: the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (the joint venture of al-Qaeda in Iraq and Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria) has declared the restoration of the caliphate in the city of Falluja, Iraq today. Time will tell whether or not this is just a publicity stunt or the start of something real, but neither the Iraqi nor Syrian governments seem to have the will or means to fight these guys at the moment and they do control a lot of territory that links up between western Iraq and eastern Syria so we will see.

    Johnno says,

    Our Lady of Fatima and Sr Lucia will be proven right, when every nation on earth is communist . . .

    Where is it said that the above will happen?

  22. Priam1184 says:

    jeffreyquick is probably right on this. It does smack of propaganda. And that analogy to the anti-German propaganda in Belgium in WWI is a propos. And we should remember that the lies told about what the German army in was doing in Belgium in WWI is why no one was eager to believe the tales that came out about what the Nazis REALLY WERE DOING during WWII. I am sure the good sister believes this but we shouldn’t be spreading this stuff around. Especially when the truth of what is going on in that region of the world is bad enough; terrible violence is spreading throughout the Middle East that is destroying it.

  23. Lin says:

    We are on our way back from the Holy Land today. I pray GOD protects this area from further destruction. It is unsettling to here the Muslim call to pray five times each day and see that mosques appear to out number Catholic Churches in the Holy Land. Bethlehem is surrounded by barbed wire and land mines to keep the Palestinians from leaving and monitor the border. We Christians are in great danger since it appears that our own president wants to kill the infidel. We must pray, fast, and do penance!
