Thanks to Barack Obama, all Americans have innocent blood on their hands because of his decision to support Christian-killing terrorists in Syria with weapons purchased with U.S. taxpayer dollars.

After threatening to use U.S. military force to topple Syria’s Bashar Assad, Obama backed off and sent weapons to Muslim Brotherhood rebels pledged to overthrow him. Those forces have been routed by al-Qaida and its allies and all the weapons the U.S provided have been captured.

That would be bad enough, but it’s much, much worse.

The Syrian rebels, now led by al-Qaida and al-Qaida affiliates, are systematically massacring Christians and other non-Sunnis wherever they are found. The rule is convert or die.

Thousands have been butchered, beheaded – entire Christian towns destroyed.

It’s a familiar lesson in the Middle East: Assad is a monster, a dictator, a murderer, a tyrant. But he was the devil we knew – the devil who actually protected Christians and other religious minorities in Syria, one of the last Arab countries offering such protection.

We got a glimpse of how insanely hellish conditions are now for Christians in parts of Syria not controlled by Damascus any longer.

The first shocker is from Sister Hatune Dogan, a Syrian Orthodox nun working with persecuted Christians. The atrocity stories she conveys are heart-wrenching beyond words. But she tells one story that is hair-raising.

She told WND’s Jerome Corsi in a Skype interview that Sunni jihadists at war with Assad’s government are beheading Christians, draining their blood in buckets and then selling small vials of the blood to wealthy supporters of their terrorism in Saudi Arabia for up to $100,000 so they can wash their hands with it in a ritual they believe helps them atone for their sins.

The Christians, she said, are beheaded in ceremonies in which they are forced to kneel, with their hands and feet bound, as the Muslim radicals read a death sentence imposed because the victim refuses to renounce Christianity and embrace Islam.

She detailed how the head of the victim is brutally severed with knives. The blood spurting from their necks is captured in basins and then bottled.

“The Muslims sever the necks and collect the blood in vessels to sell the blood,” said the nun. “The Muslims believe that if they kill a Christian and wash their hands in the blood of the Christian, they will go to heaven.”

See Sister Hatune’s presentation of her findings:

She said the sale of the Christian blood “is a big business.”

But that’s not all.

Former terrorist-turned-Christian persecution activist Walid Shoebat has published a video of Sunni Muslim terrorists playing soccer with the heads of those they murdered in Syria.

Who enabled all of this monstrous, demonic activity?

Barack Obama and U.S. taxpayers.

It was Obama’s decision to back the Syrian resistance, which has always been led by al-Qaida-style jihadists. Now, having overrun the less radical elements supplied by Americans, al-Qaida and al-Nusra have a monopoly on the movement to topple Assad – as well as a monopoly on all the U.S. weapons, communications gear and other supplies Obama provided.

What is our investment supporting?

Beheadings, trade in the drained blood of Christians, soccer played with the heads of innocent victims.

This is what happens with Americans elect amateurs or worse to lead their country and place in their control the arsenals of war.

It’s time for American Christians to get on their knees in repentance for what we have done. Our own sins are responsible for Obama.

There is no way God would use him as a judgment on America if believers were faithful, humble, repentant, seeking His face, prayerful. There is no way other believers around the world would be paying for our sins in unimaginable tribulation if American believers were faithful, humble, repentant, seeking His face, prayerful.
