Make no mistake about it. Obama helped build this and a good deal of the blood in the middle east is on his hands and the hands of his administration. His meddling in the affairs of Egypt, Libya and now Syria has been a success story for Al-Quaeda and other Muslim groups. For Christians and other non-Muslims it has and is a total disaster as these groups are exterminated by the Muslim bastards Obama so loves. Obama’s aiding and arming these groups, our enemies who are sworn to our destruction is an act of treason and the SOB should be brought up on charges, put on trial, found guilty, brought before the firing squad and summarily executed. This in accordance with our law.
Peacekeepers ordered by their commander to leave post in Syria for fear of additional kidnappings; IDF soldiers meet them at border crossing
Two days after 21 Filipino UN peacekeepers were kidnapped by Syrian rebels in the village of Jamlah, situated less than a mile from the Israeli-controlled Golan Heights, eight other UN monitors from the Philippines abandoned their position on Friday and crossed the border into Israel.
The soldiers, who belong to a UN force that has patrolled a ceasefire line between Israel and Syria for nearly four decades, were ordered by their commander to abandon the post for fear rebels may attempt to capture more peacekeepers.
An IDF force stationed in the Golan met the peacekeepers at one of the gates along the border fence along with UN personnel who arrived from the Israeli side of the border. The Israeli army stressed that its soldiers did not cross the border to pick up the peacekeepers.

The IDF was expected to transport the peacekeepers to the UN’s Ein Zivanit base, located near the Quneitra Crossing.
Some two weeks ago Croatia announced that it is withdrawing its 100 troops from the buffer zone separating Israel and Syria. The Croatian government said it feared for the soldiers’ safety after reports that Saudi Arabia had bought arms from Croatia and then provided them to the Syrian rebels.
