Icons abducted by terrorists are returned to Syrian temples

14
The icons abducted by terrorists return to the Christian temples of the Syrian city of Maalyulya, reports RIA News a message from the city government spokesman, Joseph Salladin.


Christian temple in Latakia, 2010 year.

Five icons are in the patriarchy in Damascus, three have already returned to our churches. Icons intercepted in the town on the Syrian-Lebanese border, where the militants took them for sale on the black market,
Salladin told reporters.

Maaloula is a small town located in a picturesque gorge in 50 km north of Damascus.

“This is one of the few places in the world where they still speak Aramaic, the language of Jesus Christ. The temple complex of Maalouli, among others, includes the monastery of St. Sergius, the monastery, St. Thecla, as well as the church of St. Elias, in which services are already being held, ”the message says.

The administration noted that the restoration of the temple complex, plundered by militants of Dzhebhat en Nusra (the group is banned in the Russian Federation), was accelerated due to the creation of de-escalation zones in Syria. The ceasefire regime established in the zones, the observance of which is controlled by the Russian military police, makes it possible to deliver building materials to Maalyul at an accelerated pace.

      But what about the followers of the cult of Lucifer and perverts? When only the Russian Federation declared freedom, they climbed out of all the cracks, like locusts, Hare Krishnas, amusinerikeshniki and other muck. "I have brought you not peace, but a sword" - from a quote from the birthday man.

    not bad, but it doesn’t matter either, because it’s not necessary to restore the “temples” there but the kindergartens of the school polyclinic and hospital; and how our democrats boast of jumping temples built and added a pension of 50 rubles; and for that cheb child normally cure money tear

    Happy Christmas! All peace, goodness, prosperity and creation!
    Doubly good news about the revival of life in temples and indeed.
    However. The history of a hundred years ago was repeated like a carbon copy, terrible even for the Middle Ages massacres, atrocities, the slave trade, the tax on life and the right to own faith, and forced conversion to Islam. Burning in the fire of BV.
    Millions of Christians (including the Assyrians) died or left their historical homeland, the next Exodus happened.
    My grandfather (1910-1998) often recalled how Kurds flew into their village at night and cut half of the inhabitants, and how, by dawn, the rest of the inhabitants plunged into arbs and moved towards Russia.

    You would give yourself the trouble to figure it out first, and then write. On the topic of faith you need to talk calmly, with the arrangement, without shouting. Rowing everything and everything under one comb and declaring filth is not the best strategy in talking about religion. Read Me first.
