A History of Syria – Documentary

Published on Sep 11, 2015

Dan Snow travels to Syria to see how the country’s fascinating and tumultuous history is shaping the current civil war. For thousands of years empires and despots have fought for control of the strategically vital region, leaving behind stunning temples, castles and mosques, as well as a diverse cultural heritage. Those conflicts – from the Roman conquests to the crusades, from the French colonial invasion to the military coups of the 1960s – loom large in today’s conflict. For those confused by the seemingly random nature of the bloodshed and slaughter, Dan Snow unpicks the historic divisions between Sunnis and Alawites, Islamists and secularists, east and west.

ISIS Genocide aims for Christian-free Nation

It is a genocide and a crime not just against humanity but against our civilisation by ISIS Islamist Terrorists.
Barack Hussein Obama is largely responsible for this genocide against Christians and other religious minorities in Iraq. His military advisors wanted to leave at least 20,000 residual troops in Iraq to help stabilize the Iraqi government and its army. He rejected their advice — and now we have a genocide unprecedented in recent memory. Thousands are dying horrific deaths and hundreds of thousands are now refugees fleeing to other countries or into the mountains where they’re dying without food or water.
