A Sobering Testimony: Hell Has Arrived in Syria

by | May 22, 2014 | Israel & Jewish Roots, Standing With Israel

Note from Messiah’s Mandate Ron Cantor: Moti Cohen recently had the opportunity to go to Jordan with a team from Israel made up of Jewish and Arab believers. His report from Jordan is quite powerful.

Hell on Earth

A few hours ago, I arrived in Israel after visiting Jordan, and I am still trying to digest what I have seen there. The evil in the Muslim world is overwhelming. What is happening in Syria unveils its true face. Yeshua said that the thief comes in order to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10), and Syria is a clear example of this.

The army of Assad is wiping out city after city—both the Islamic rebels and Assad’s army kill everybody in their way—and the victims are mostly found among the innocent: children, women who have been raped, people murdered in front of their family, old people who are tortured. For millions of people, hell has arrived in their land. Over 3 million refugees have fled Syria, 1.5 million of which escaped to Jordan.

The City Fhes

We traveled to Amman as a group of nine Israelis—seven Arab Israeli pastors and two Messianic Jews. Our first stop was in Fhes, a half-hour away from Amman. There are tens of thousands of Syrian refugees in this town. In the refugee camps, which have been set up near the Syrian border, there are tents where the refugees receive food and medical care. The problem is that the camp is already full, and there is no possibility to enter it. Therefore, thousands of families go to other Jordanian cities.

In Fhes, I saw Syrian children living on the streets, begging for money. Most of the families manage to rent an apartment in one of the poor districts. Sometimes a family of 25 people—parents, children, grandparents, aunts, uncles and their children—live in one apartment. The apartments are unbelievably overcrowded. In some of those we visited, there was no furniture, only mattresses with bags of clothes next to each one. There were no tables, chairs or other furniture. In some cases, more than one person slept on the same mattress.

At the beginning, I didn’t understand why there were so many mattresses in the distribution center. But after having visited people in their homes, I understood that the children, the old and the sick are spending most of their time on the mattress, and therefore it was important for us, among other things, to provide families with mattresses.
