It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

U.S. Backed Syrian Rebels Killing Christians

(LRC) - Christians are being systematically targeted for genocide in Syria according to Vatican and other sources with contacts on the ground among the besieged Christian community. According to reports by the Vatican's Fides News Agency collected by the Centre for the Study of Interventionism, the US-backed Free Syrian Army rebels and ever more radical spin-off factions are sacking Christian churches, shooting Christians dead in the street, broadcasting ultimatums that all Christians must be cleansed from the rebel-held villages, and even shooting priests....

THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: That's right, you read the headline and story correctly.  The United States federal government, seated in Washington D.C., is backing Syrian rebels who are systematically executing (murdering) Christians in the streets, in their homes, and in their churches.  They are killing priests and nuns, women and children, and all funded with American tax dollars.  That's right America, the money we paid Uncle Sam last April is blood money.  A portion of it is being used to help radical Muslims kill Christians.  How does that make you feel?

What have we heard from the mainstream news media in the United States on this issue?  Silence!  Nothing!  Their lips are sealed!!!  Allow the Knight to bring you up to speed if you haven't been reading lately.  The United States federal government is working with the Muslim Brotherhood.  Why?  Well, here it is in a nutshell.  Large international corporations (particularly energy firms) want to get their hands on Middle Eastern oil.  Now to make a long story short, Muslim nations that work with these corporations are lavishly rewarded with more money than they know what to do with.  Think Saudi Arabia for example, or Kuwait, or the U.A.E.  Nations that refuse to cooperate go on these corporation's black list, and once they are on the corporate black list, it isn't long before they end up on Uncle Sam's black list.  Think Iraq for example, Libya, Syria and Iran.  Now here is how Uncle Sam works.  First, he sends in the C.I.A. to covertly train and arm rebels to attempt "regime change" through a coup or civil war.  Second, should that fail to work, he turns to N.A.T.O. or the U.N. to do the dirty work for him via a bombing campaign.  Third, if that doesn't work, or if either of these two organisations fails to cooperate with Uncle Sam, he just "goes it alone" with a "coalition of the willing" and launches an American led bombing campaign or all out invasion.  If you look at U.S. Middle Eastern foreign policy over the last 20 years, this is pretty much how it always plays out.  It's a three step approach; one, two and three.  Hopefully, step one gets the job done.  If not, it's on to step two, and if that doesn't work, well, you know what happens next.

The terrorist attack on 9-11-2001 was a turning point in America's Middle Eastern foreign policy.  After the radical jihadist attack on American soil that claimed thousands of lives, the G.W. Bush administration continued the same Middle Eastern policy started by his father back in 1990, but altered it slightly.  As his Defence Secretary Condoleezza Rice put it; for years American Middle Eastern foreign policy was marked by the pursuit of stability over freedom, and what we got was neither.  She followed by stating that from 9-11 forward, American Middle Eastern foreign policy is marked by freedom over stability.  Allow me to translate.  What this means is the United States will actively destabilise the Middle East in the pursuit of "freedom," but by "freedom" she doesn't mean freedom in the sense that you and I understand freedom.  She means "freedom" in the sense of letting the Islamic radicals take over and rule their countries according to whatever their religious zeal calls for.  It was under the G.W. Bush administration that the decision was made to ally with the Muslim Brotherhood, the mother of all terrorist organisations in the Middle East.  The idea was to "switch sides" so to speak, help the Muslims get what they want, and in exchange they hope to curb Islamic terrorism in America while simultaneously gain favour in oil deals with American-led international corporations.  Pressure on Israel to give up occupied land for peace was started in earnest under the G.W. Bush administration, and continues under the current Obama administration.

Let me make this perfectly clear.  This problem is not an Obama thing.  Nor is it a G.W. Bush thing.  Believe me, if Mitt Romney gets elected, he won't do a damn thing to change it either.  No, this problem is a Washington D.C. thing!!!  It's called "Yankee Imperialism," and it goes back a long long way.  Yankee Imperialism is nothing new, and it has a long history of being sponsored by big money in New York and the corporations that span the globe from there.  This is why the 9-11 terrorists targeted New York and Washington DC, specifically the World Trade Centre and the Pentagon.  It was to send a message, and that message was that they no longer care for the way the financial-military complex is running things in the Middle East.  That's why the Bush administration pivoted to favour the Muslim extremists, and that's why Uncle Sam is essentially giving Osama Bin Laden much of what he wanted, even after putting a bullet through his head.  "Thanks for the course correction, now here's your reward.... BANG!!!"  Make no mistake about it, this is exactly the kind of people we have running the American government.

Presidential elections won't change this.  Putting Mitt Romney in office won't stop this.  He will do it too, and possibly with more fervour than Obama and Bush put together.  Who are the sacrificial lambs?  Well, Middle Eastern Christians of course!  More Christians have been murdered in the Middle East since this new American policy was initiated, than since the crusades.  In Iraq, Americans were assured that Christians would be safe under U.S. led democracy.  Instead, they were murdered by the thousands, their churches were bombed (while they were inside), and there has since been a mass exodus of Christians from Iraq.  In Egypt, the C.I.A. was instrumental in orchestrating the protests and overthrow of that regime.  Since, bringing in U.S. led democracy, Egypt became a slaughtering house for Christians.  Thankfully, there weren't many Christians in Libya to be affected by the U.S. supported rebels and N.A.T.O. bombing campaign.  Now Uncle Sam turns his sights on Syria, arming the rebels, and no doubt using the C.I.A. to train them and coordinate their attacks.  What follows in their wake?  The Assad regime has not even fallen yet, and Christians are already being slaughtered in Syria.  We all know who is next on Uncle Sam's hit list -- Iran.  How many Christians will die there now as a result of Yankee Imperialism?

American Evangelicals, you should be ashamed of yourselves.  You helped support this, with your prophecy-crazy Zionism.  Each year you send millions of U.S. dollars to Israel, for everything from helping Jews settle occupied territory, to rebuilding the Temple Mount.  You ignore the plight of your Christian brethren in Palestine, and now you ignore their suffering in Iraq, Egypt, and Syria.  You say, "throw Obama out of office and elect Romney!"  Caring less about the real probability that Romney will do everything Bush and Obama did in the Middle East, and likely so much more!  Shame on any U.S. Catholic who has dared to support the Evangelical Zionist (Israel-first) vision of the Middle East.  For in doing so, you turn a blind eye to what Washington DC is doing to your Christian brethren over there.

The Catholic Knight has disowned the United States federal government.  I no longer recognise it as legitimate.  It is a tyrannical dictatorship that began in 1861 and continues to this day.  It occupies my nation (Dixie) and uses our resources and young men to further its imperial designs.  Now it persecutes Christians at home, by telling their children they cannot pray in school and their charities they must provide abortions and contraception.  All the while it supports the wholesale murder (indeed GENOCIDE) of Christians overseas.  There is nothing anyone can say that will get me to support this government ever again.  It is an anathema.  May God save my Christian brethren in the Middle East from its wicked ambitions.
