A strike by Syrian forces killed over 180 people in the town of Halfaya, near the city of Hama, says the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The state TV blamed the attack on the rebels, accusing them of filming the aftermath to "frame the army."
"In Halfaya, regime forces bombarded a bakery and committed a massacre that killed dozens of people, including women and children, and wounded many others," said Lebanon’s Naharnet, quoting the Local Coordination Committees, a grassroots network of activists.
Activists say the strike hit a line of people queuing outside a bakery. The account is supported by an amateur video released on YouTube which shows scores of dead or wounded people in the rubble. The footage also depicts men carrying victims out of a bombed one-story block, and a crater in the road beside it.
"A MiG [jet] has attacked! Look at [President Bashar] Assad's weapons. Look, world, look at the Halfaya massacre," says the unidentified cameraman, adding the ruined building used to be a bakery.
The video, however, has not yet been independently verified. If it is authentic, it remains unclear why Syrian forces targeted the town. But reports suggest this might have been a counter-strike as Halfaya appears to have fallen into rebel hands. Moreover, on Monday the opposition forces claimed to be launching an all-out assault on army positions across the Hama region, which has been one of the centres of the uprising. 
In recent days, rebels have been clashing with government troops in the region around Halfaya, according to the Associated Press. Activists say rebels have taken over a number of regime checkpoints and proclaiming Halfaya a "liberated area". It’s part of a wider strategic effort to gain control over the country's main north-south highway.
Syria's state news service blamed the attack on "an armed terrorist group”, accusing the rebels of filming the aftermath to "frame the Syrian army."

Peace envoy in Syria

The violence came just before a visit to Syria by Lakhdar Brahimi, the UN-Arab League’s peace envoy, who met with President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus. "The situation in Syria is still worrying and we hope that all the parties will go toward the solution that the Syrian people are hoping for and look forward to," Brahimi said.
President Assad told reporters that "The government is committed to ensure the success of all efforts aimed at protecting the sovereignty and independence of the country." 
Brahimi, traveling from Lebanon, arrived in Syria on Sunday, just over two months since his last visit to the war-torn country.
Syria's crisis began in March 2011 with political protests which eventually fomented into a civil war, with scores of rebel groups across the country battling Assad's forces. The President says he is fighting a foreign insurgency. The conflict has taken lives of over 40,000, Syrians and created a further 164,000 refugees.

The US bears exclusive responsibility for everything happening in Syria. Note that they are behind the crackdowns in every country, except Syria. This is because they want their reactionary thugs in Syria to prevail, but here America is betting on the wrong people. All the FSA thugs are going to be killed by Assad, and this should be a devastating lesson to the White House that its global influence is in terminal decline. For some time now, America's hands have been tied and cut off in every country, and the "African president" O-bomber's desperate but doomed imperialist plan to occupy Africa and plunder its resources will surely fail.

The torrorists are using chemical weapons, as Halab Christians have witnessed and spoke out against the torrorists. These subhumans are trying to get their kids join in and if they don't then they are shot dead right infront of their parents. These beasts will be the world problem. The west supported "Afghan Mojahideen" against USSR in 1980s, but they are causing trouble all over.

There is no evidence whatsoever that the Syrian Army had anything to do with this..
And besides, the videos show absolutely no women or children. They show plenty of armed men, and they show a terrorist placing bread on the blood for the camera to record. There is no indication at all that this was a bakery like the FSA thugs are claiming.
It looks like a bunch of FSA terrorists were killed (possibly by each other) and now they are trying to make it look like a massacre by the army... Just like Houla which they tried to blame on the army and it turned out that the terrorist FSA was responsible for it. This is the policy of the NATO supported terrorist rebels, commit massacres before any UN meeting/visit.
Go Syrian Army, crush the rats.

Christmas Eve – The Misnomer of an Overcrowded Inn

By Brian C. Stiller

Retold by Christmas pageants, reminded by carols and pictures replenish what we think happened at Jesus' birth. I know it so well I hardly need a sermon, picture, movie or song to remind me of a pregnant Mary riding a donkey, about to deliver; a village with inns filled to capacity; a kindly innkeeper finding a stable for rest; shepherds arriving at a barn to welcome the Christ-child. The overall narrative has it right, but the core assumption is so wrong as to miss an essential part of the story.

One thing you can know for sure pastor, is that in the course of your ministry you'll be sinned against. You'll be misunderstood, falsely accused, and unfairly judged. You can taste the sad harvest of relational détente that so many church staffs live in, or you can plant better seeds and celebrate a much better harvest. The harvest of forgiveness, rooted in God's forgiveness of you, is the kind of ministry relationship everyone wants.

NT Wright Wrong About Eternal Torment?

By Dan Delzell
Dan Delzell
N.T. Wright was an Anglican bishop in the Church of England from 2003 until his retirement in 2010. In recent years, he has written some questionable opinions and made some provocative statements concerning heaven and hell. Wright is very direct when talking about the resurrection of the body....especially for those who will spend all of eternity with Christ. But he becomes quite vague when asked about hell. He tends to view hell more as a "progressive shrinking of human life" in this world, rather than as a literal "lake of fire" in the next world.

NRA Chief: If Armed Security in Schools Is Crazy, Call Me Crazy

Lee Strobel: Making the Case for Christmas

By Alex Murashko
While still an atheist and crime reporter for The Chicago Tribune, Christian apologist and best-selling author Lee Strobel says a story he covered decades ago about a "poverty-wracked" family and how they showed him the true meaning of Christmas through their actions still resonates with him. Strobel gave The Christian Post an exclusive on his "Making the Case for Christmas" story.
Despite all the celebrations around us, many of us – including believers – might still be missing Christmas, if we are living in despair, feeling that God doesn't care or is not fulfilling His promises, says Pastor Brad Powell of NorthRidge Church in Plymouth, Mich.
For many Americans, Christmas time calls for remembering Jesus' birth, giving gifts, spending time with family, and almost inevitably, stress. Megachurches in the U.S. are no different, with many of them preparing an array of Christmas performances and services for attendees, the organization for which begins as early as summer.
Christmas pageants have become a thing of the past for many churches in the Winston-Salem, N.C., metro area. Instead of pouring all their resources into one giant production for the congregation, these churches have chosen to look outward and take the Christmas "party" to the community.

The video could not be independently verified and it remains unclear when the violence took place. It has appeared shortly after the activists' reports that a strike by Syrian forces claimed lives of over 180 people in the town of Halfaya. An amateur video released on YouTube on December 23 showed scores of dead or wounded people in the rubble and men carrying victims out of a bombed one-story block. The state TV blamed the attack on the rebels, accusing them of filming the aftermath to "frame the army." Those responsible have not yet been identified.

We also tell all the lies that will be needed] Opposition activists tend to blame government forces for what they call deadly violence against civilians around Syria. On their side, the government point to the atrocities committed by the rebel groups. In August a report by the UN human rights investigators said that both Syrian government forces and rebel fighters are committing war crimes during the conflict. The Syrian Observatory of Human rights said Wednesday that according to their estimates more than 45,000 people have been killed in Syria since the start of the uprising in March 2011. "In all we have documented the deaths of 45,048 people," the watchdog's head Rami Abdel Rahman was quoted by AFP.
