British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond (pic above) said that the concert of the Mariinsky Theater orchestra in Syria’s Palmyra was a tasteless attempt to distract attention from ongoing air raids in Syria.

“This attack took place against the backdrop of a concert in Palmyra, a tasteless attempt to distract attention from the continued suffering of millions of Syrians. It shows that there are no depths to which the regime will not sink. It is time for those with influence over Assad to say enough is enough,” Hammond said, speaking about the bombing of a refugee camp in the war-torn country, when nearly 30 were killed.

The Symphony Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre played amid the ancient ruins of Palmyra under the direction of People’s Artist of Russia Valery Gergiev. The concerns was called “Prayer for Palmyra. Music revives ancient walls.”

Washington found the concert of the Russian world-famous orchestra in Palmyra a positive event. According to US State Department spokesman Mark Toner, the US praised the musical event in Palmyra, but denounced the fact that Bashar Assad’s regime replaced the Islamic State in Palmyra.

Russian President Putin appeared in a video address to the people attending the concert in Palmyra. Strangely enough, Western media paid a lot less attention to the liberation of Palmyra and the mine clearance of the ancient city.

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
