Purpose Driven Terror? Rick Warren's Syrian Trip an outrage

Christian Newswire has an article about Pastor Rick Warren's trip to Syria. Apparently, the Syrian News Agency is giving glowing reports of what Warren had to say while in Syria.

Seems his meeting with the Syrian Mufti gave him the impression that there is true co-existence between Muslims and Christians in Syria. He says the United States government has distorted the Syrian image before the world. And, apparently, Warren is buying this.

Pastor Warren expressed admiration of Syria and the coexistence he saw between Muslims and Christians, stressing that he will convey this image to his church and country."

Rick Warren also is quoted as saying that 80 percent of the American people oppose what the Administration is doing in Iraq. We at VCY America Radio Network are appalled and angered that Rick Warren is praising a nation that has long supported international terrorism and that desires the utter destruction of Israel. The U.S. State Department reports that Syria--along with Iran--gives the Lebanese militia Hezbollah "substantial amounts of financial, training, weapons, explosives, political, diplomatic, and organizational aid." The State Department also has documented that Iranian arms destined for Hezbollah pass through Syria on an ongoing basis. Syria has also let Hezbollah operate in Lebanon and attack Israel, the results of which were seen in the July, 2006 violence between Hezbollah and Israel in which many lost their lives. Experts further believe that Syria is the source of the weapons and insurgents that are taking the lives of Iraqi and American soldiers on a nearly daily basis in Iraq.
