Syrian extremists' beheading a Catholic priest and another man were videoed in graphic detail and released this week, the beheading confirmed Tuesday by The Vatican, that omitted that U.S. President Barack Obama is backing extremists' beheading Christians in broad daylight to gain naive American Christians' support to illegally attack Syria.
"Is this group REALLY who we want our taxpayer money going to support?" Before It's News Live Free or Die contributor asks. "Why is Obama supporting theseAl-Qaeda Free Syrian Army terrorists? Has Obama totally lost his mind supporting people who do THIS?"
On Sunday, June 23, Syrian priest François Murad was killed in a beheading in Gassanieh, in northern Syria, in the convent of the Custody of the Holy Land where he had taken refuge from Obama-backed extremists.

This has been confirmed by a statement that the Custos of the Holy Land sent to Fides Agency.
Father François, 49, had taken the first steps in the religious life with the Franciscan Friars of the Custody of the Holy Land, and with them he continued to share close bonds of spiritual friendship. After being ordained a priest he had started the construction of a coenobitic monastery dedicated to St. Simon Stylites in the village of Gassanieh.After the start of the Civil War, the monastery of St. Simon had been bombed and Fr. Murad had moved to the convent of the Custody for safety reasons and to give support to the remaining few, along with another religious and nuns of the Rosary.
“Let us pray,” writes the Custos of the Holy Land Pierbattista Pizzaballa OFM ” so that this absurd and shameful war ends soon and that the people of Syria can go back to living a normal life.”
Archbishop Jacques Behnan Hindo, in Hassaké-Nisibis had reported to Fides, “The whole story of Christians in the Middle East is marked and made fruitful by the blood of the martyrs of many persecutions. Lately, father Murad sent me some messages that clearly showed how conscious he was of living in a dangerous situation, and offered his life for peace in Syria and around the world. ”
Circumstances of the death are not fully understood. Local sources, however, say militants linked to the jihadi group Jabhat al-Nusra attacked the monastery where Fr. Murad was staying.
Obama-supported rebels' abuses worsening to gain American Christian support
Obama authorized the CIA to lead covert arms shipments to militants fighting and killing people in Syria, according to Reuters.
A security official and several ‘anonymous’ rebel Commanders have confirmed that Qatar “tightened coordination of arms flows [plural] to Syria,” under alleged concern of weapons landing in the hands of Al Qaeda-linked Islamic extremist militants; the very militants that have continually formed the spearhead of the insurgency against the Syrian Government, Reuters reported.
“Rebel fighters in Syria say that in recent months the system for distributing arms has become more centralized, with arms being delivered through opposition National Coalition’s General Command, led by Selim Idriss, a general who defected to the opposition and is a favorite of Washington,” reported Reuters in an expose of U.S.-backed Syrian rebels.

Before Reuters' article, Global Research's Michel Chossudovsky had already documented the Obama regime committing atrocities in Syria, not the Syrian government, much less Assad.
Phil Greaves for Global Research adds that these extremist groups, supposedly of "Al Qaeda" origin, (an ideology more than a coherent functioning group capable of international war) form sectarian "shock troops" that the US and their allies long ago agreed to foment and support in attempts to block "resistance” within the "Shiite crescent," and have grown beyond all means of control.
"Qatar (under CIA 'consultation') has tacitly encouraged, sponsored and armed the very same groups that are prominent now: those of an extremist Salafi/Jihaddi ideology that espouse sectarian hatred against Shia and minority groups to promote division and social chaos.
"This supposedly happened directly under the CIA’s nose, with their tacit 'consultation' and they failed to notice this extremist dynamic developing and rapidly expanding?"
"No," twelve former intelligence and military officers answer. Those twelve people wrote to Obama last week, advising him that the CIA is behind the Syrian atrocities and urging him to discontinue his fraudulent claims that Assad is behind the violence.
The Vatican reports, "A Catholic priest killed. Bishop Hindo offered his martyrdom for peace."
Nobel Peace Prize recipient, "peace president" Obama created this martyr by having him brutally murdered.
