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.

Dozens Killed in Two Syrian Cities

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

Syrian soldiers and rebels killed more than 50 people and wounded more than 100 others in a car bomb blast in a regime-held neighborhood in Homs and mortar shelling attacks in Damascus.

The car bomb explosion killed 36 people and wounded more than 85, most of them civilians. In Damascus, at least 17 died and 50 other were wounded in the mortar shell barrage.

As usual, the regime of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad blamed rebels, whom it calls “terrorists,” for the attacks, which opposition forces apparently carried out considering that the victims in Homs were Alawites, the sect to which Assad belongs.

Human Rights Watch reports that Assad’s forces still are carrying out barrel-bomb attacks in the city of Aleppo, ignoring a U.N. resolution demanding a halt to the barbarian tactic.

However, virtually no one in Syria listens to the United Nations or anyone else as the civil war drags on in its fourth year, about three years after military and political “experts,” such as Ehud Barak of Israel, were dead certain that Assad would not last more than a few months.

Syrian Rebels Decimating Hezbollah

Monday, March 10th, 2014

Syrian rebels have killed approximately 500 Hezbollah soldiers, including at least 15 in the past 10 days, according to sources quoted by the Beirut Daily Star.

Social media and websites have depicted photos of the dead Hezbollah members, complete with praise for their “martyrdom” for carrying out their “jihadist duty.”

Videos have been posted that show Hezbollah gunmen in fierce battles with Syrian rebels in the rebel-held town of Yabroud in the Qalamoun Mountains near eastern Lebanon.

Report: Commander of Syrian Rebels Trained in Israel

Monday, February 24th, 2014

Abdul-Ilah al-Bashir, the new commander of the Free Syrian Army, secretly trained in Israel last year after being admitted into to the country for medical treatment, according to the Arabic language Al-Ahd website.

He was transferred to a hospital in Israel after he was wounded in a military operation. Rumors spread that he died and was buried in Syria, allegedly to distract attention from his training in Israel.

US Backs Syrian Rebels’ Ultimatum to UN to Keep Iran Out of Talks

Monday, January 20th, 2014

The United States has backed an ultimatum by Syrian opposition forces to rescind an invitation to Iran to joint the Geneva II peace talks scheduled for Wednesday unless Tehran publicly accepts that the conference will establish a political process to end the rule of Syrian President Bassar al-Assad.

The peace talks appeared to be over before they were to start following an ultimatum Monday by the  Syrian National Coalition that the invitation be rescinded by Monday night.

“The Syrian Coalition announces that they will withdraw their attendance in Geneva II unless Ban Ki-moon retracts Iran’s invitation,” it said in a Twitter post.

The coalition said it could accept Iran at the talks only if it were to remove its forces  fighting with  to maintain his control of war-torn country.

Given pre-conditions by Assad and the Opposition concerning a future government, the chances of anything positive coming out of Geneva II are nil.

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

The Al Qaeda-linked ISIL terrorist organization attacked a rebel-held city in northern Syria on Wednesday and killed at least 26 people in a car bomb explosion.

Fighting between the rebels and ISIL has developed into a second civil war with the broader civil war between Syrian President Bassar al-Assad and opposition forces.

ISIL denied claims by rebel spokesman that its commander was killed in a clash with rebels. The commander is from Belgium, and the Belgian foreign ministry confirmed that it hard of reports that he was dead.
