SYRIA: Metropolitans Boulos Yazigi and Mor Youhanna Ibrahim kidnapped outside Aleppo, driver murdered

I have warned since the jihadists began agitating in Syria that there will be a genocide of Christians and Alawites of unimaginable proportions should Assad lose control.

Two Metropolitans were kidnapped, their driver murdered in Syria. A Metroplitan is the head of an ecclesiastical province, ranking between archbishop and patriarch. Obama is backing and arming the jihadists in Syria. Once again, Obama backs the Islamic supremacist horse -- every time. He is consistent in this.

Metropolitans Boulos Yazigi and Mor Youhanna Ibrahim Kidnapped Outside Aleppo by OCP on April 23, 2013 (thanks to Maksim)

Armed men have kidnapped the Greek Orthodox Metropolitan of Aleppo and Iskanderun, Metropolitan Boulos Yazigi and the Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Aleppo, Metropolitan Youhanna Ibrahm near the city of Aleppo.

An-Nahar has learned that the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate, which recieved news of the kidnapping of the two metropolitans this evening, will not issue any statement before tomorrow, pending their receiving complete and precise information about the kidnapping.

According to details relayed to an-Nahar by specific sources, Metropolitan Yazigi was on the Turkish side of his archdiocese, which extends from Aleppo to Antakya and Metropolitan Ibrahim and gone to accompany him. Along the road on their return to Aleppo, an armed group stopped them before they could arrive to the city, killing Ibrahim's driver and kidnapping the two metropolitans. The Orthodox metropolitan's office relates that the two metropolitans were not injured.

Metropolitan Boulos Yaziji is the brother of the Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and All the East John X Yazigi.
