The US government is blocking any weapons from reaching a Christian militia, called Dwekh Nawsha, in Iraq. This is just another piece of evidence proving that the Obama administration does not want to help persecuted Christians, but only wants to arm and help the jihadists. Here is the report:
Lobbyists in D.C. are blocking weapons and equipment from reaching Dwekh Nawsha, the Christian militia force that has been fighting ISIS in Iraq’s Assyrian Nineveh plains, according to retired Lt. Col. Sargis Sangari, an American advisor.
Originally reluctant to fight, Christians decided to take up arms and defend their homeland after ISIS’ brutal onslaught in Iraq last summer. While thousands of Christians have fled, the men of Dwekh Nawsha, whose name means “self sacrifice” in Jesus’ native tongue of Aramaic, want to preserve Christianity in its ancient homeland.
“After 15 years, you’ll come back here and you won’t find any Christians,” said Marcus, a young Dwekh Nawsha fighter, to Yahoo News.
Marcus said that he knows that one day “our children… will ask us: ‘Why did you give up? Why didn’t you fight?’”
“So we will tell them: ‘We fought,’” he said.
Assyrian Christians, who still speak Aramaic, have formed at least four armed groups, according to Yahoo News, with three fighting in the area north of Mosul.
Lt. Col. Sangari, an Iraq war veteran who served 20 years in the Army, told Breitbart that Dwekh Nawsha’s fighting ability has been severely depleted.
“All we’re saying is we’re done. We don’t have equipment. We don’t have the weapons. We don’t have the training,” said the Assyrian-American Lt. Col. Sangari.
“One of the biggest obstacles we run into are the lobbyist groups in Washington, D.C. who are being funded to no end to try to preach in favor of other ethnicities in the region who cannot even manage and administer their own areas,” he said. “Because of that the Assyrians have not been able to get the support they need.”
Pointing to the criticized U.S. policy of training and arming Syrian rebels, Sangari said: “As much as you’re giving money to all these individuals who are killing each other, why don’t you try to give it to the Assyrians?”
Shoebat.com wrote about Dwekh Nawsha when it first came about, and we have even interviewed the man who trained the militia, Bret Felton, a devout Christian from the United States who went to Iraq, risked everything, trained the whole militia, and kept ISIS from entering entire Christian areas.
“I’m not here serving my country – I’m here serving Christians,” Brett Felton once told CBS 60 Minutes. But whatever has been told by the secular media, Brett says is not the full story. What you will watch here is a rare breathtaking interview including footage on the Christian fighters Brett trained. Shoebat.com connected hearts with this American sniper to let him speak about what has never been told before regarding the realities of how Christians in Iraq fight valiantly and also how they suffer being sold out by the Kurds (watch video below).
There are no words to describe Brett’s heroism, his deep inner wisdom and his child-like heart, which can all be seen through his eyes as he expresses his inner soul.
Like any American youngster from the east coast, this kid from Detroit initially thought it cool to have tattoos, joined the U.S. armed forces and fought in Iraq witnessing first hand the error of U.S. intervention to remove Saddam Hussein and how later Obama abandoned Iraq completely leaving behind it’s Christian community to fend for themselves. So Brett took the mantle where it was left-off.
Initially, Christ and religion were not even on his mind as he miraculously survived an IED explosion. He knew very little about Christianity or about Iraq being the cradle of his Christian heritage, until of course, he was suddenly jolted by the rude awakening having witnessed the suffering of the Christians there. He describes how Christians were sold out enduring beheadings, pillage, rape and utter misery. Instead of going home to his weeping mother, Brett quickly learned how to speak Arabic blending in the culture to become a suffering saint willing to be martyred for the cause of Christ. In this amazing footage, watching Brett spill his heart out in a never before told story, will not only bring tears, but will expose how the Kurds abandoned the Christians and sold them out to get raped and beheaded by ISIS. He speaks of loneliness and how churches and governments abandoned them in their plight to save Christianity in Iraq. He is truly a warrior mystic. Shoebat.com conducted an exclusive interview that will leave your heart and mind impacted:
Brett was key in aiding and training his Christian comrades in Iraq. He is an American hero who became one of the leading foreign fighters in the Dwekh Nawsha Christian Militia training them on how to fight against whom Brett calls “cowardly ISIS”.
“The world is abandoning us” Brett laments adding “and we need help, who is going to help us?” He later adds profound wisdom from above: “dying is the easiest thing you will ever do … I laugh at it … but the biggest battle of them all is making the world care”.
“Convincing the world to care is more difficult than being killed for Christ” says Brett.
He describes the material world and ends with a beautiful nugget: “how do you make a people care in the first world? They go to work, they have a Mercedes, and they have a BMW, they have a nice house, what do they want? Do you know why I cry? I don’t cry because my friends die – in this I rejoice in the Lord – I cry because people want a nicer car. People want a bigger house. People want this and that. They want everything that means nothing”.
“They want everything that means nothing”, how profound.
Brett found the secret for his existence. “I will sacrifice everything in this world that I love for what I believe … carrying your cross is the most rewarding thing you will ever do in this life and the next” he says.
And if the material world is not all you seek, then I ask you to please donate to our cause to rescue persecuted Christians.
There are so many Christians to help in this dark world. We are right now helping Christians who are being murdered and raped in Pakistan and Iraq, and Christians in Mexico who are being slaughtered by the demonic cartels in Mexico. Please help these Christians and make a donation today that will save Christian lives.
