WHAT IS NOW SYRIA WAS ONCE CHRISTIAN - UNTIL MUSLIM INVADERS TERRORIZED IT INTO SUMBISSION AND CONVERSION.
JUST LIKE THEY'RE TRYING TO DO NOW ALL OVER THE GLOBE.
JEWS GO WAY BACK THERE, TOO:
According to "the patriarchs Abraham and Isaac spent part of their lives in what is now Syria. During and after the late Biblical period, and until the late 19 th Century, Syria and Eretz Israel were often territories of the same superpower and were sometimes considered a single entity. The Talmudic Sages ruled that some of the religious laws that pertain only to the land of Israel (chiefly in the realm of agriculture) apply to Syria as well."
The foundation for the Great Synagogue in Aleppo is believed to have been constructed by King David's General, Joab ben Seruya (circa 950 BCE), after his conquest of the city (2 Sam 8:3-8); it is still sometimes referred to as Joab's Synagogue. The architecture of the synagogue was heavily influenced by the designs of Muslim mosques. For example, the ark of the synagogue is an exact copy of a mosque’s mihrab.
Walter Zenner dates the building of the Great Synagogue to the fifth Century of the Common Era. The synagogue was destroyed during the rule of Tamerlane in 1400 and was rebuilt in 1418. In 1947 anti-Zionist groups burned the synagogue, which was in an abandoned state by 1995.
JEWS AN CHRISTIANS WERE NEVER THE IMPERIALIST INVADERS THE LEFT AND THE JIHADISTS WANT YOU TO BELIEVE THEY WERE.
THE MUSLIMS ARE THE INVADERS AND THE OCCUPIERS.
