Default Syria files: Wikileaks releases 2m 'embarrassing' emails

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18724328

""The range of information extends from the intimate correspondence of the most senior [governing] Baath party figures to records of financial transfers sent from Syrian ministries to other nations," she said.

.....

Some of the 2,434,899 emails would reveal, Wikileaks promises, "how the West and Western companies say one thing and do another".

Will be a lot of newspaper mileage in this story.

Default Syrian army shelling 'kills more than 100' in Tremseh

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18823303

"If it is confirmed, the Tremseh attack would be one of the bloodiest single events in the Syria conflict."

These people need all the prayer we can manage for them.
Please try to include them and all these suffering Arab Spring nations in our daily masses and prayers.

Default Heavy fighting in Damascus

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-18852340

"Mr Annan is expected to try again to persuade the Russians to put more pressure on Syria to end the violence.

But his visit comes as there are reports of heavy fighting reaching the Syrian capital, Damascus. Julie Peacock reports."

Remembering that Scripture tells us that Damascus is to be destroyed.
It is unfolding before our eyes.
