Letter from Priest to Members of the U.S. Senate, regarding to Syria

In  the  name  of  the  Father,  the  Son, and  the  Holy  Spirit. Amin

At the outset I ask our  Lord  to grant me the right thought in  formulation the  following words.
Dear Sirs Members of the U.S. Senate

 I send  to  every one of you,  Because you are the decision-makers. And want  to  tell you my words as  a  priest.
The contents of the letter will come from  the truth which  is  lies  in  the Bible, where  I hope my English will help me for delivering the message. 

 I'll  begin  in  the  dialectical Verse  stated  by Lord Jesus Christ Who grant peace to humans. But do you know what kind of peace?     "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword."(Matt 10:34)

Here, I'll  jump to  the relevant issue:

In the midst of this gloomy atmosphere of darkness God  sent  a wondrous prophet,  to bear witness for God;  And works for the salvation of his brothers.

He is Elijah the Tishbite.

While enemies of goodness Ahab and Jezebel wore the spirit of corruption,  God has prepared the prophet Elijah to  be witnesses for God, and working for his kingdom.
Where, at  that  time,  there  were no daring between the kings of Israel to commit sin like Ahab,  on  other hand there was no prophet has courage and fiery like Elijah

 He is the only one between prophets won dignity with Enoch  where  moved to the afterlife when He  alive, No one can doubt about the size of Divine Love to the prophet Elijah, And his works were satisfactory in the sight of God. Therefore, God sent him cart  and  hourses from the fire of divine , took him to where God dwells ( Heavenly Kingdom).

But,  Before cart  of fire

Prophet Elijah had used the divine fire and killed 100 Soldiers who were belonged  to  the King, because the fate of  all  who serves the villain is fire.  And the fate of villain is death.

"And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty." (2 kings 1:10).   

Those  were  Soldiers  belonged  to  the King Ahab
And King Ahab, was evil, fatal, and  like many of dictatorships in this time. Who  kills  their  people  like  Ahab.  And  must  be  punished  in  order  to ends  their  reign.

 Dear Sirs Members of the U.S. Senate

The fire, in some cases, is a necessity, and should be used;   In order to punish the killers, and an end to their rule.

And you,  after days, will take a firm decision.

Therefore,  We ask God :

 That you will grant courage  in  order  to  save your  brethren  in  humanity, as the prophet Elijah did.
