Kentucky Senator Rand Paul gave a speech at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California last Friday and criticized Sen. John McCain’s recent “secret” trip to Syria to meet with Syrian “rebels.”
Paul noted that there are two ironies in McCain’s support of Al Qaeda and other foreign Jihadists fighting against the Assad regime:
The first irony is you will be allied with Al Qaeda. The second irony is most of the Christians are on the other side, so you may be arming Islamic rebels who may well be killing Christians.
In short, Paul correctly points out that American support for the “rebels” in Syria is actually support for Al Qaeda, which is slaughtering Christians and destroying churches in Syria as it seeks to overthrow Assad. And, if memory serves, Al Qaeda has declared war on America and Israel and is responsible for the horrific attack on New York City and Washington, D.C. in 2001 where thousands of Americans lost their lives.
The Obama Administration and John McCain are both on the wrong side of this war between rival terrorist organizations – and Christians are going to be ethnically cleansed – while this battle goes on.
