Commotion at MIC headquarters
1 day ago
"Father Fadi's superiors had asked him why he kept traveling back and forth between Qatana and Damascus.He responded: 'I cannot not serve Jesus, I need to help people, that is why I have to move around.'"It is believed by many Middle East watchers that most of the Christian minority in Syria (10 percent of the total population) support the regime of President Bashar al-Assad due to the current national constitution that guarantees Christian freedom of religion as well as the right to own and operate Christian schools.
"Some Christian families in the two districts had been thrown out by militant Islamists.Other sources in Middle East countries have repeatedly spoken of the militant Islamic extremists travels from Libya, Iraq and other nations toward Syria, with the aim to infiltrate in the ranks of the Syrian Army of Liberation."The report went on to state;
"A year ago, before the start of the fighting, there were in town, on the whole, 160,000 faithful and four Bishops of various denominations (Antiochian Orthodox, Melkite Catholics, Syriac Orthodox and Assyrian Orthodox).In Homs there are [now] about 1,000 Christians."http://www.examiner.com

On Monday the 41-year-old father's passion for football cost him his life.
Prosecutors announced on Tuesday they were charging three players, two 15-year-olds and a 16-year-old, with manslaughter, assault and public violence for alleged involvement in a vicious attack on Nieuwenhuizen after a youth match between two local clubs, Buitenboys and Nieuw Sloten. The players, whose identities were not released, will be arraigned on Thursday at a closed-door hearing.
Prosecutors say a group of Nieuw Sloten players surrounded Nieuwenhuizen and kicked and punched him after the match against his son's team on Sunday . Nieuwenhuizen went home to lie down, and returned later to watch another game, where he collapsed and was rushed to hospital. He died the next day.
Prosecutors released no details of a possible motive and the Buitenboys club chairman, Marcel Oost, said the reason for the attack was not certain.
"We still don't have a clear picture yet," prosecution spokeswoman Brigit Haan told Associated Press.
That the attackers who have been arrested were three Moroccans, according to the "Algemeen Dagblad", certainly does not make the case any easier. According to an Interior Ministry report from November 2011, 40 per cent of all Moroccan immigrants aged between 12 and 24 were arrested, sentenced or charged within the last five yearss. In city districts where people of Moroccan descent form a majority of the inhabitants, youth criminality already reaches 50 per cent.
