Syrian Appeal Interview

I have been patiently waiting for the proper release and permission to share the following interview publicly. The full story can be read at WND. Please take a few moments to watch and listen to the following video of portions of the interviews that I was able to conduct with two dear Syrians for my forthcoming film project.

As so many other aspects of this project have been, these particular interviews were obviously deeply providential in their timing. I pray that the Lord might use them to influence some decision makers in the American government.

Please continue to pray for Syria and for wisdom for the American government in the days ahead. I am also asking everyone to spread this video as much as possible to everyone you know, via various social media, e-mail etc.

I would like to thank these courageous believers for sharing their testimonies. Please remember these dear ones in prayer. I would also like to thank all those who have worked so hard to make the proper modifications to the interviews in order to protect the identities of those interviewed.

    Joel this is heart breaking, we are the enemy! We have always thought ourselves to be the good guys but we are selfish self serving murderers with blood all over our hands. There is nothing that can’t and wont be done for greed and power.
    This has the Enemy’s fingerprints all over it. Good has become evil and evil good.
    We must all pray and seek The Lord. The enemy has changed uniforms and is directing our defeat from within. May God help us.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you, Joel!!!

    These interviews should be shown to every American citizen alive today. They should be on PBS, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, CNN, Fox, etc., etc.

    These interviews are heart-wrenching! One cannot watch these (and listen to these) videos, and not come away with a sickening feeling in the pit of your stomach about the way things REALLY are. The TRUTH about things. And, they way our government has lied, lied, lied to us!

    At this very moment, on YHWH’s Biblical calendar, we are in the High, Holy Days of Awe! Rosh HaShanna has begun. The Feast of Trumpets, better known as the time of Judgement. Over the next ten days, before Yom Kippur, we seek forgiveness from God, and from others, and focus on whether our names are written in the Book of Life.

    This year, 9/11 falls during these Days of Awe. What a coincidence, huh? Or is it? There really are no coincidences in God’s economy.

    I am told, it has been decided, that if Congress gives Obama the “go-ahead” to strike the Assad Regime, plans are to do this on 9/11. Alarming for two reasons: 1) It’s the anniversary of 9/11/01 and 9/11/12. But, it will also be occurring during the Holy Days of Awe … during God’s (YHWH’s) JUDGEMENT.

    These are critical times we are living in. Since the Lord is interesting in Eternal things, so therefore, should we be. Let us put our entire focus on where “we” stand with God, and watch out for opportunities to help others find their way to Him. It’s all about Eternity. Is our name written in the Book of Life? Where will we be, Eternally?

    Thank you, Joel, for keeping us informed of the things going on around us, through these interviews, and all the articles, blogs, and books, you so meticulously provide for us (through the power and might of the Holy Spirit), helping us to be informed, and to keep close to the Lord, at the same time.

    Blessings, jd

    Does anyone know how to save this videoclip as a complete file? I can only save the link. I’m thinking before it is removed from the web.

    This is just heart-breaking! The more we can spread and get the word out what the Syrian people themselves say about the issue that Joel has posted, the more the truth will come out and stop the insanity of a possible military strike on Syria. Not that it will make any difference, but I posted this video on Bill O’Reilly’s Facebook page, my fb page and sent it to Bill O’Reilly through FoxNewsChannel. I suggest that they rest of you do the same and any other new media outlets you think will at least give it a fair hearing.

    Personally, I feel the more we at a grass roots level get the word out…the more will know the truth and maybe, just maybe we can with God’s help stop another Iraq war. Please dear God, let it be so!

    Just to update you about your video that I posted on Bill O’Reilly’s Facebook page yesterday. It has been summarily removed from the discussion thread no where to be found…I guess they really don’t want the truth at FOXNEWSCHANNEL, do they? Why should I not be surprised? I’m sure your not. But I tried, Joel. Last I looked I had five likes for your video interviews.

    Thank you Joel. I have been reading the blog now for two weeks or so and the information you provide, though troubling, has the ring of truth. I certainly appreciate the Godly perspective on current world events.

    Just one note, which you may be interested in: a member of my family was in the Iraq war and their job was the disposal of chemical munitions which were buried, then uncovered by the unit in the Western part of Iraq. Yes, according to eyewitness, they were there.

    God bless you and Walid (Shoebat).

    So the people in the interview are saying that they do not want Assad removed from power? He has treated the people respectfully and provided for peace? Do they want America to help Assad fight the rebels? I’m all for fighting on the side of truth and justice, but the Syrian conflict has been confusing to me. Please clarify.

    Assad is not a wonderful man by any means, but he is so clearly the lesser of two evils right now.
