Russia and Syria "Take Vengeance" for Hagia Sophia

The Syrian National Defense Forces, a pro-government, Christian supported militia, received the consent of the Greek-Orthodox Metropolitan Nicholas Baalbaka of Hama, to build a smaller copy of the Hagia Sophia in the Christian town Al-Suqaylabiyah, writes Insmi.ru (July 30)

This is considered a response to Turkey which recently turned Constantinople's Hagia Sophia into a mosque.

The commander of the Russian military base in Khmeimim – 40 km West of Al-Suqaylabiyah - supports the idea, also the Russian State Duma represented by Vitaly Milonov.

Turkey, a NATO country, is one of the main aggressors against Syria and a leading sponsor of Jihadists terrorism. The church will be just a few kilometres away from an illegal Turkish army bases.

During his presidency flame of war will start on the south, later China invade Russia and this country will stay smaller, just as Russia, to the end of times.

Assad and Putin are better friends of the Catholic Church than most bishops

Putin is a snake. He will curl up next to you as long as you have something he wants, otherwise, watch out - the ricin laced fangs strike fast and deep.

Alawite Syrians, a mix of gnostic, neo-platonism, Christian, and Islamic elements, but they are the only friends and protectors of Christians in the region.
