 Speaking at the inauguration, Syrian Minister of Religious Endowments Mohammad Abdul-Sattar al-Sayyed noted that this was the first time in the Muslim world when a mosque has been named after the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus Christ. He added that the mosque embodies calls for amenity and fraternity between Syrians of all faiths.

Al-Sayyed noted that Syria is one of the places where Islamic culture and architecture originated, adding that Syrians of all confessions deplore and condemn the barbarity with which ultra-extremists from ISIL and other terrorist groups operating inside Syria demolish and deface places of worship.

Tartous and Lattakia Maronite Patriarchate representative Antoine Deeb noted that the symbolic gesture of naming the Mosque after Mary shows that Islam and Christianity share the messages of peace and love.

Russia: “In the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit Virus Hits Russian Computers” and Demands Money”

#AceSecurityNews says  that New draft anti-terrorism legislation grants the FSB greater access to information about users of popular websites such as Google and Facebook;

The Federal Customs Service starts implementing tough new rules relating to parcel deliveries – much to the dismay of on-line shoppers; IT experts raise the alarm over a new virus that’s apparently on a mission from God – beginning its cyber attack by demanding money in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Father,Son and Holy SpirtAccording to the latest news from the Manila Times and there post MOSCOW has added a spiritual dimension to the world of hacking, a new Trojan virus has emerged in Russia that locks computers and demands money for church repairs.

Victims may feel the urge to pray if their computers are hit by the malware, which claims to be acting “in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.” More specifically, the Trojan-Dropper.Win32.Dapato.dggc virus claims to be moved by the last of the three aspects of the Trinity to lock up user’s files.

Father,Son and Holy Spirit2Recovery is promised in return for a donation, which is allegedly to be spent on church restoration, the Kaspersky Lab antivirus company reported on its corporate blog.

A similar trick is often employed in the non-virtual world by Russian beggars, who dress up as priests and pretend to collect money for church needs.

The Russian-language Trojan is distributed as a .zip archive containing unspecified court documents allegedly intended for the user, Kaspersky Lab said on the blog on Monday.

The hackers behind the spiritual computer sabotage have not been identified. The Russian Orthodox Church has not commented on the allegedly pious malware at the time of publication.

Russia is undergoing an alleged religious revival, with numbers of believers – though not churchgoers – skyrocketing in recent years, according to polls.

Separately, Russia outranked the United States, Germany, China and Poland for the number of cyber-attacks on computers in 2013, Kaspersky Lab reported in December.
