At a religious summit in 2015, then-congressman Pompeo, apparently in reference to the fight against same-sex marriage, said Christians would continue the struggle until the rapture, which is the moment many evangelicals believe they will ascend to heaven.

A mass was held in the Presbyterian church of Aleppo, Syria to honor the martyrdom of General Soleimani who had an essential role in the liberation battle of East Aleppo against US-backed Jihadists. Reverend Ibrahim Naseir is speaking.
Thanks in large part to Soleimani’s efforts, after so many decades of Western-led corruption, hate and brutality Iraq appears strong enough that they may even be able to expel the US immediately and even peacefully. I don’t think Soleimani would ask for any greater legacy than that – this is what he died for.
