Boris, Help Rebuild Syria!
'O hush the noise, ye men of strife, And hear the angels sing'. (From: 'It came upon the Midnight Clear')
Thank God for the liberation of Aleppo by the Syrian Government, supported by Russia and Iran and the eviction of Western- and Saudi-supported jihadists from the east of that city.
What more can say how much the reunification of the city was a triumph for peace than that Christians in Aleppo were able to celebrate Christmas in their churches for the first time in five years!
But now, as we pray for a cease-fire and a political solution, we need to push the British Government to recognise that it is time to help rebuild Syria. It's time for bricks, not bombs.
So we call upon Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson MP to do the following:
1 Stop all support and encouragement for the Syrian opposition and all further attempts to destabilise the Syrian Government and President Bashar al-Assad and work for peace instead,
2 Realise that President Assad, despite his faults, is the only guarantor of stability in Syria and the rights of religious minorities - the 'Free Syrian Army' jihadists supported by the Foreign Office have destroyed churches and would evict or kill every last 'infidel' Christian, Alawite, Shia and Druze from the land,
3 Recognise and re-establish diplomatic relations with the Syrian Arab Republic,
4 If we have to spend as much as £12.2 billion on foreign aid, send some of it, in fact, a lot of it, to Syria to help rebuild that country and its infrastructure, especially helping its Christians to re-establish their homes and their businesses, and
5 Never again interfere in the internal affairs of a sovereign state, under the pretext of 'Responsibility to Protect' or with any other excuse!
