HE HAD just got married and his wife was about to give birth but this did not save Andrei Arbashe, a young Christian, from a horrific fate at the hands of rebels fighting President Bashar al-Assad’s regime earlier this month.
“They beheaded him, cut him into pieces and fed him to the dogs,” said Agnes-Mariam de la Croix, mother superior of the Monastery of St James the Mutilated between Damascus and Homs.

The stark reality of the New Year is that Islamists will continue to kill in the name of Allah in many nations just like usual. In Syria radical Islamists are killing minorities and mainstream Sunni Muslims, who don’t follow their creed of hatred. Meanwhile in Pakistan it is open season against killing charity workers, health workers and burning people alive who allegedly blaspheme against the prophet of Islam.
Pakistan and other nations including America, the United Kingdom and Saudi Arabia supported Islamists against communist Afghanistan in the 1980s and early 1990s. The consequences of this are still reverberating today. However, the so-called elites in the above named nations have literally “gotten away with mass murder and chaos.”
More alarming, the same destabilization processes which were used against Afghanistan by supporting international jihadist networks in the 1980s and early 1990s is now being used against Syria. This means that mainstream Sunni Muslim clerics are being killed in Syria by international jihadists and indoctrinated Islamists at home. Therefore, the same forces which enabled September 11 to take place are once more involved in supporting radical Sunni Islamism in the Levant.
Of course nations like America, France and the United Kingdom are trying to cover their collective tracks. Yet their collective cover is blown because these nations are not putting pressure on Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar to stop funneling resources, military hardware and creating many terrorist rat-lines in order to enter Syria. On the contrary, the usual players are delegating many intricate webs in order to destabilize Syria and clearly they all know that Islamists are filling the vacuum.
However, the massacre of charity workers by Islamists in Pakistan is a stark reminder that once the “Islamist genie is out,” then it is difficult to put it back in its bottle. Of the seven charity workers that were killed in Pakistan it is known that 6 were women. If Syria is anything to go by then the same Islamists will have probably been chanting “God is great” before killing women in cold blood – and the same applies to the death of the male charity worker. After all, in the world of “year zero Islamists” then killing in the name of Allah is all that matters irrespective if they are killing Muslims or non-Muslims. All that matters to these Islamists is death and destruction.
Prior to nations supporting international Islamists in Afghanistan in the 1980s and early 1990s, then the indoctrination of Salafi Islam and other radical conservative versions which hate diversity were on the back-foot. However, once the leaders of America, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom and other Gulf states supported Islamic jihadist movements then a barbaric reality entered the vacuum. The consequences of this are still reverberating today and this applies to endless massacres against Shia Muslims in Pakistan, persecution of non-Muslims, enormous discrimination against Ahmadiyya Muslims, attacking teachers who want to educate women and a host of other barbaric realities.
In Syria you have daily terrorist attacks and the secular nature of this nation is under threat. If things reach the same climax then this nation is going to be damaged for decades to come and sectarianism and Islamist indoctrination will turn the clock back. Yet many of the same nations which have created countless vacuums in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and created blow-back in Pakistan and of course enabled September 11 to take place; appear to care little because they are now involved in supporting sectarianism, terrorism and sedition against secular Syria. Also, for other nations like Mali and India then they have been victims of the terrorist networks which have been unleashed in the past by the axis of America, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom and other nations already mentioned.
The murder of the latest charity workers in Pakistan alongside the image of a Syrian soldier being beheaded while Islamists encouraged a child to hack at his head – highlights the pure brutality and hatred of these religious fanatics. Yet for too long many nations have worked collectively with the same Islamist networks when the time suited. This is the case once more in Syria therefore the deaths of these charity workers in Pakistan can be traced back to the same nations which supported international jihadists in the 1980s and 1990s. Likewise, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and several Gulf states have enabled Islamist indoctrination to spread far and wide. Meanwhile so-called democratic nations in the West are allowing the petro-dollars of Saudi Arabia and several Gulf states to indoctrinate in Western nations.
Several weeks ago health workers were killed by Islamists in Pakistan. It was stated in an article by Modern Tokyo Times that “Given this reality, then the criminal act in killing health workers on the grounds of jihad, sums up the warped logic of a religious movement which is intent on crushing all alternative thought patterns. In a world based on logic, then these health workers would be praised for dedicating their lives for the good of humanity. Yet logic within the mindset of Islamic jihadists is not only thin on the ground but it is equally neo-primitive to an extreme.”
“However, if we turn the clock back to the early 1980s then nations like America, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom supported radical Sunni Islamists against communist Afghanistan. This meant that special operatives from within the CIA representing America and the ISI from Pakistan, and other operatives from nations like the United Kingdom, enabled international Islamists to get a foothold in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The upshot of all this is that a nightmare was created and today the world is witnessing this ongoing nightmare.”
Today another innocent seven people were killed by Islamists on the grounds that they were going to teach women and to help people who badly need support. These individuals in normal societies would be praised but in parts of Pakistan they are hated by Islamists. Yet when democratic nations condemn this attack, then the nations supporting the destabilization of Syria should take a good look in the mirror. After all, in Syria the same Islamist forces are encroaching on the “Muslim light of the Levant.” If Islamists win then indigenous Islam, Christianity and the Druze faith will all face a very bleak future in Syria. After all, Islamists care little about civilization and different thought patterns – instead they want a “year zero Islamist Islam” based on supremacy and hatred. Therefore, why are major Western nations in cohorts with nations like Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states – and why don’t they ever learn?
