Israel Will Revoke Citizenship of Arab ‘Paraglider’ – If He Returns

Sunday, October 25th, 2015

The Israeli citizenship of the Arab who glided from the air into Syria Saturday night will be revoked, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at the beginning of Sunday’s weekly Cabinet meeting.

The Arab, as reported here, set off a crisis after the IDF discovered that someone had paraglided from the Israeli side of the Golan Heights into Syria.

The IDF began a search for the man, but once it was clear that the paraglider had crossed into Syria to join the enemy, either the Islamic State (ISIS) or the Al Qaeda-linked Al Nusra Front, the search was called off.

Prime Minister Netanyahu told the Cabinet:

We are constantly fighting Daish, Jabhat – Al Nusra and other terrorist organizations.

Yesterday an Israeli civilian crossed our border in the Golan Heights into Syria to join the ranks of the enemy. We will act to nullify his citizenship. That is what is done in any such case.

Whoever joins the ranks of the enemy to fight against Israel, will not be an Israeli citizen.

Hezbollah, Lebanon, Syria and Hamas officially are enemies or illegal in Israel. Does that mean that the citizenship of any Israeli who joins Hamas, or Islamic Jihad, will be revoked?

Don’t bet on it.

And how about Mahmoud Abbas’ “resistance” terrorists working for his Fatah party?

No chance. Israel has not declared Fatah an illegal terrorist organization.

It is headed by Israel’s “peace partner.”

A Sign of Desperation: Iran Claims Syria Killed Israeli Soldiers

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

It appears that Iran soon will put the Brooklyn Bridge on sale.

The regime’s Fars News Agency, whose previous journalistic scoops include Iran’s having found a cure for cancer, has reported that Syrian war planes killed three Israeli and Jordanian officers in a supposed air raid on Al Nusra forces in Dara’a.

The need to release such a report to boost morale is a sign that the Iranian-backed regime of Bashar al-Assad is in bad shape.

The same report boasted:

In similar operations on Friday, over 100 militants of al-Nusra Front were killed in the Syrian fighter jets’ operations in Dara’a.

The sources said that, over 100 terrorists, most of them from al-Nusra Front, were killed in a series of army airstrikes that targeted their gatherings in Dael town in the countryside of the southern Dara’a city.

If the story were true, it would be a public admission that Syria broke a 48-hour ceasefire, which collapsed before its Saturday expiration date with clashes in three cities, including two that have been surrounded by an alliance of rebels and Al Nusra, linked with Al Qaeda.

The third city is on the Syrian-Lebanese border.

With nearly a quarter of million people killed and half of Syria’s population displaced in the four-year-old conflict, Iranian soldiers are fighting alongside Assad’s forces in a do-or-die attempt to keep him in power.

As for the report of Israelis being killed, there is absolutely no chance that an Israeli soldier would be killed in action without the country knowing about it.

Lebanon to Pay $30 Million to Jabhat Al-Nusra

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

The Saudi website newspaper Aawsat reports that Lebanon will be paying $30 million to Syria’s Jabhat al-Nusra rebels to free 16 Lebanese hostages.

In addition, Lebanon will also be releasing one of the wives of an ISIS leader, Abu Bachar al-Bagdadi, whom they captured.

The 16 hostages being held by Jabhat al-Nusra are Lebanese soldiers.

Hezbollah, which is fighting Jabhat al-Nusra, is unhappy with the deal and they are worried the money will be used to fight them.

Lebanese-Druze Ready to Raise 200,000 Man Defensive Army

Friday, June 12th, 2015

The international Druze community is understandably worried. As a small, quiet minority in Syria, the Syrian-Druze community relied on Bashar Assad for protection.

But with the advances of the Syrian rebels and ISIS, the Syrian-Druze community finds itself in existential danger.

This week, fighters associated with Jabhat Al-Nusra massacred 20 Druze civilians in Qalb al-Loza, in the Idlib region.

Over the past year, Druze villagers have faced some battles with al-Nusra fighters who tried to attack their villages.

Israeli-Druze have been repeatedly and strongly warning of imminent massacres of their brother just across the border.

Prominent Druze leaders in Lebanon are calling for assistance for the Syrian-Druze community.

According to the Lebanon Daily Star, former Lebanese-Druze Minister Wi’am Wahhab, who supports Assad, asked for weapons from Assad so the Druze could defend themselves from al-Nusra:

“[The Druze in Syria] are ready to defeat the terrorists, but what they lack is arms. Lebanon’s Druze are ready to help, we are ready to form an army of 200,000 fighters to defend the Druze,” Wahhab said in a televised speech, urging Assad to provide arms to the community.

While Lebanese-Druze MP Walid Jumblatt, who on the other hand supports the Syrian Rebels, said they have spoken this week with the rebel groups and other regional powers to create a joint effort to protect residents in the Druze villages of Idlib.

All around, most of the various groups and divisions within Lebanon have been condemning the massacre of the Syrian Druze.

Sources: Al Qaeda Bombed Hezbollah and Framed Israel

Monday, April 27th, 2015

Israeli media have quoted “reliable sources.” probably Israeli officials, that Al Qaeda-linked rebels and not the Israel Air Force bombed Hezbollah targets early this morning.

Several Hezbollah fighters in Syria were killed in the attack near the Lebanese border, according to the Qatari-based Al-Jazeera, which said the IAF was behind the attack.

A Syrian army base, where long-range missiles are kept, reportedly was bombed.

The Israeli sources said that the Al Nusra front, affiliated with Al Qaeda, was behind Monday morning’s attack and took advantage of Israel’s killing four Hezbollah terrorists last night as they were planting a bomb along the border with Israel at the Golan Heights. A Hareidi unit spotted the terrorists.

Arab media quickly picked up the thread Monday morning, connected the dots and concluded that the bombing was a continuation of Israel’s reported strikes on Friday and last Wednesday  deep inside Syria.

Sources said Al Nusra is trying to force Hezbollah back into Lebanon. Hezbollah is fighting with forces loyal to the Assad regime and against rebels and a host of terrorist organizations that include Al Nusra. The elephant on the war front is the Islamic State (ISIS), which controls a large part of the war-torn country.

Israel consistently does not confirm or deny reports of strikes in Lebanon, Syria and other terror-based countries. The possibility remains that the Israeli Air Force indeed bombed Hezbollah again but wants to avoid appearing too offensive in the eyes of Iran and Russia, which has agreed to ship to Iran the advanced S-300 anti-missile system.


Syrian Rebels Ask Israel to Bomb Hezbollah

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Unnamed Israeli officials have confirmed that Syrian rebels have asked the Netanyahu government to bomb Hezbollah and Iranian positions, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

Israel seems to be doing a job of doing so all by itself, but the rebels want the IDF to take a more active role. Israel never has admitted or denied several pre-emptive aerial bombings of weapons and Hezbollah positions.

The Observatory said that Assad, Hezbollah and Iranian Revolutionary Guards have launched an offense to counter rebel attacks near Damascus.

“Regime troops and their Hezbollah-led allies are advancing in the area linking Deraa, Quneitra and Damascus provinces,” the Syrian Observatory said.

Rebels have lost most of northern and eastern Syria to the Islamic State and the Al Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front. Hezbollah has taken over most of western Syria, bordering Lebanon.

That leaves the south as the rebels’ last stronghold.

“The rebels in the south comprise a diverse array of fighters,” analyst Aymenn Jawad al-Tamimi of the Middle East Forum told Voice of America.

Nasrallah Claims Turkey Deals With Both ISIS and al-Nusra

Monday, January 19th, 2015

In an interview aired on the Lebanese al-Manar news site on Monday, Jan. 19, Hezbollah Secretary General Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah made many of the standard blowhard assertions everyone expects. To wit: Hezbollah has much modern weaponry, Hezbollah’s military prowess and arsenal has increased and continues to increase in strength every year.

Nasrallah also claimed that his fighters are training day and night, that they will be ready to liberate the Galilee, and they will penetrate far into enemy territory “in case of a new Zionist aggression in Lebanon.”

No explanation for why this latest “Zionist aggression” was not the one they’ve been waiting for,  just more threats about the next time.

But in the course of the six minute interview, Nasrallah said something worth noting.

The interviewer asked Nassrallah whether Turkey has relations with either ISIS or the al-Nusra Front.

“It has relations with both of them,” Nasrallah replied.

The terrorist leader also claimed that despite what U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and President Barack Obama “say in the media,” behind the scenes the U.S. administration has revealed in “confidential letters to some regional countries” that it is “not concerned with whether President Assad remains in power or departs.”

Nasrallah said that only Turkey and Saudi Arabia really care about dethroning Assad.

The terrorist leader also said that Hamas is very interested in having close and complete relations with Iran and with Hezbollah.
