IDF Patrol Escapes Injury in Explosion in Golan Heights

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

An IDF patrol escaped injury Friday morning when an explosive device was detonated as their vehicle was travelling in the Golan Heights along the Syrian border.

No damage was reported.

The IDF has not confirmed that the blast was intentional and it might have come from an old land mine, but most military sources concluded that a bomb was intentionally placed by fighters at war with Syrian President Bassar al-Assad. ISIS and Al Qaeda control most of the Syrian aside of the Golan Heights.

Last week, Israel fired a Patriot missile to shot down a Syrian fighter that had strayed into Israeli air space, prompting Syrian officials to charge Israel with an “act of aggression.”

IDF Stands By as Al Qaeda Offensive Threatens Golan Farmers

Sunday, September 14th, 2014

The IDF warned Golan Heights farmers Sunday that they are liable to be victims of stray rocket and mortar shell fire as Al Qaeda-led rebels advance in their offensive against the army of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad.

At least one mortar shell exploded in the northern Golan Heights on Friday.

Israel has been careful to stay out of the civil war, now in its fourth year, but the IDF occasionally has responded to several firing incidents that appeared to be aimed at Israel.

So what do you do when your terrorist neighbors, whether Assad, ISIS or Al Qaeda, are killing and beheading each other, but an occasional rocket just happens to fall in your back yard?

You duck.

The IDF says, “Be careful,” and it is hard to criticize the walk-on-eggs policy.

If Israeli soldiers start showing their guns and attack rebel or loyalist positions, Israel, in a single step, or shot if you prefer, could instantly turn the ISIS, Assad and Al Qaeda into allies with the ultimate common enemy, those terrible Zionists.

You know, those are the ones who are occupying territory that was mostly uninhabited except for a Druze city and Syrian army positions used to pound Israeli farmers along the Kinneret until the Six-Day War in 1967.

Now, the shooting has shifted to the Golan Heights, where farmers have the option of being careful while they work or are being even more careful by not working.

But the IDF is not likely the bill for apples that are not picked and for cattle that are not grazing in the pasture.

The farmers are suffering, but at least they have the satisfaction of knowing that with every day, there are a few less terrorists on the other side of the border.

If the farmers can be agile enough to duck quickly, and the IDF can restrain from firing back, there might be peace on the day that the last terrorist blows himself up in frustration because there is no one else left to kill, except, of course, for Israelis.

 

Al Qaeda Controls Syrian Side of Golan Heights

Saturday, September 13th, 2014

Al Qaeda forces have headed a rebel offensive and have taken control of most of the Syrian side of the Golan Heights, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights

“The regime has now lost control of about 80 percent of towns and villages in Quneitra province,’ and the Al Qaeda-led forces have taken over the only crossing over the armistice line between Syria and Israel, the organization’s director Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.

The Islamist State ISIS terrorist organization has taken control of other areas to the east, but Syrian President Bassar al-Assad’s air force has bombed ISIS training bases Saturday and killed at least eight Islamic State fighters.

Fighting at Quneitra

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Assad’s Syrian Army is not going to throw in the towel at Quneitra on the Golan Height, after losing it to Syrian rebel groups last week.

The IDF reports there are fierce battles going on with the rebels. With the different forces fighting for control over the Quneitra crossing as we speak.

IDF radio report that loud explosions are being heard in Israel, from the fighting.

The control over the border crossing with Israel has significant symbolic importance, which also results in it having strategic importance.

Last week, UNDOF troops, except for the Filipino UN troops, abandoned their posts along the border after the Rebels attacked the UN positions, capturing a number of UN peacekeepers/observers.

UPDATE: A mortar has landed in Israel

Al Qaeda and ISIS are Israel’s New Northern Neighbors

Friday, August 29th, 2014

Al Qaeda, ISIS, Syrian rebels, and soldiers loyal to Syrian President Bassar al-Assad are engaged in free-for-all and barbaric war that is taking place dangerously close to the Golan Heights border with Israel.

The Syrian government announced Sunday that it has reclaimed control only parts of Kuneitra, on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has jumped on the chaos to thump his comparison of ISIS with Hamas, while President Barack Obama shocked Americans with a candid appraisal that the United States “does not have a strategy yet” to deal with the New Middle East, light years away from what then-President Bill Clinton promised when he sold the snake oil known as the Oslo Accords.

So long as terrorists kill each other in Syria, Israel can relax, but if and when one terrorist group survives and takes over, the IDF will be wishing for the good ‘ol days of fighting Hamas in Gaza, despite Netanyahu’s description that if a rose is a rose is a rose, ISIS is Islamic Jihad is Hamas. To paraphrase his famous “duck” statement in the United Nations, concerning a nuclear Iran, “if it looks like a wild animal, and if it walks like a wild animal, and if it talks like a wild animal, it is a wild animal – and not a duck.”

The radical Islamic movement has proven that extremism and barbarity are relevant terms, and the ISIS has made Assad look human, more or less, and made Al Qaeda look like middle-of-the-road Islam.

The Syrian government has not admitted the ISIS massacre of approximately 150 of its soldiers, who dropped their weapons and ran for what they thought was their lives in a battle. Instead, the ISIS caught up with them and murdered them. Before their deaths, several of them were “convicted” after their admissions of sins against Islam by not having raped and murdered enemies.

Naughty, naughty radical Muslims, they were.

It is difficult to express ”good news” when beheadings and kidnappings are common are Syria, but Obama’s “we do not have a strategy yet” comment on Thursday should be interpreted positively and not negatively.

It is a bit shocking that the Obama administration’s foreign policy gurus have been standing aside for more than three years during the bloodbath in Syria, after initially siding with Assad.

However, considering that everything his administration touches turns to you know what, Israel and the rest of the world might be better off to the let animals act like animals, pity the innocent civilians who are caught in hell on earth, and let the United States worry about Ferguson and immigrants from Mexico.

Israel also is undoubtedly anxiously preparing for a potential future battle against ISIS or Al Qaeda domination on the Golan Heights.

ISIS, Al Qaeda and Syrian rebels have common enemies in Basher Assad and Israel, but they also are battling each other in order to stake a claim of which terrorists will rule whatever is left of Syria in the future.

The Al-Nusra terrorists long ago split off from Al Qaeda, engaged in its own civil war while fighting both rebels and Assad.

It is all in the name of Allah.

“We in the Al Nusra Front only fight to raise the word of Allah, to make the oppressed triumphant,” one fighter said, according to Fox News. “We only fight to get rid of the enemy Bashar and his soldiers. We have come to fight them so that we can impose Allah’s laws on the country.”

Al Qaeda distances itself from ISIS and announced that ISIS “is not a branch of the Al Qaeda group [and] does not have an organizational relationship with it and is not the group responsible for their actions.”

ISIS Slaughters 450 Captured Syrian Soldiers Since Wednesday

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

During the past 2 days, ISIS slaughtered 450 Syrian soldiers whom they captured, many were unarmed at the time they were captured.

Initially, 250 Syrian soldiers who ran away during the battle for Al Tabka airport were captured and killed. Those soldiers had run away, many leaving their guns behind, and were hiding in fields west of the airport.

Not knowing they were dead, Assad then sent in 200 more soldiers to rescue the captured Syrian soldiers, but it was an ambush, and those soldiers were also killed by the ISIS soldiers.
