Al-Qaida prepares for Israel-Iran war

Report: Al-Shehri warns against "the greater state of Israel."

Al-Qaida is ready to exploit a war "by the Jews against Iran," the Sunni group's second-in-command in Yemen, Saeed al-Shehri, said in an audio message this month, according to the Daily Beast.

The mostly Shi'ite nation of Iran is an enemy to Al-Qaida, and al-Shehri predicted that after Israel attacked Iranian nuclear installations, Iran would blame Saudi Arabia - which reports say may let Israel fly through its airspace to attack Iran - and use the opportunity to seize the holy cities of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

If Al-Qaida goes to war with Israel, they should know that the Israeli Defense Forces are not hampered by U.S. rules of engagement. There’s not going to be any gutless lawyers running around to see if Al-Qaida fighters were blown apart fairly and squarely.

"Obama vacations... "

I hope he turned over the "football" to Joe Biden. He may have a lot of misplaced priorities, but I have a bit more confidence in his ultimate loyalties.

You have it exactly right. And I would add: the end of combat mission in Iraq.

“If Al-Qaida goes to war with Israel, they should know that the Israeli Defense Forces are not hampered by U.S. rules of engagement”.

Wishfull thinking - the IDF is hampered by the UN, the Quartet, the IRC, UNICEF, it's own internal boards of Inquiry, the Obama administration, the BBC, SKY News, Al Jazera, Al-Manar (Hizbollah TV), CNN’s Christine Amampour, IAEA, the IHH, Loius Farrakahn, Judge Goldstone, Academia and self-loathing Jews, oh and I forgot, the rest of the world from trying to defend herself.

If there could be an upside to a war between Israel and Iran it could be that Israel would allow its combat soldiers to actually fight a war without handicapping its soldiers with ridiculous crippling ROE.

If the SITF, I would want to be out of Washington, too.

Although not even the threat of nuclear war would get me to go to MV in August. Yikes.

self-ping, thanks DMDW2SS.

“al-Shehri predicted that after Israel attacked Iranian nuclear installations, Iran would blame Saudi Arabia — which reports say may let Israel fly through its airspace to attack Iran — and use the opportunity to seize the holy cities of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.”

I’m mainly looking forward to the hole-y cities of Iran after the IAF is done with ‘em.

I agree with you on that. The Middle East has never been closer to all out war since 1967, and of course there was no question of nukes back then.

" Iran would blame Saudi Arabia - which reports say may let Israel fly through its airspace to attack Iran - and use the opportunity to seize the holy cities of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia. "

That right there is crazy talk.

IF Iran tried to move an Army...tanks, artillery, men, machines, supplies etc. they would need to be able to defeat the combined Air Forces of the Arabs AND the US...or be sitting ducks.

The slaughter would dwarf that shown in Kuwait on the Highway of Death.

The same fate would await them in the narrow waters of the Persian Gulf.

Overland they'd have to drive through Iraq and Kuwait.

All Iran has is the biggest, most advanced and committed terrorist army the world has ever seen.

They have built something akin to The Assassins of lore.

Guess who owns some of the largest oil reserves is Iran blows up the middle east?

If you guessed Russia, you now understand why they are helping this whack job.

These people are nothing but purveyors of supposition. They have no clue about the inner alliances within the muslim world. Ever since Iranian fanatics thumbed their nose at international protocol by taking an embassy hostage, it has been obvious to this observer they don’t have any leash on their radical urges.

Iran probably funded Osama because Osama could easily recruit an all Arabian (plus one Lebanese HizbAllah chap) to do the 9-11 historic attack. Iran wants the US public to hate Saudi Arabia. Iran and the Osama-ites have the goal of overthrowing the infidel supported regime in Saudi Arabia. Enemy of my enemy is my friend blah blah.

Now there is an airtight alliance of the USA, Saudi Arabia, the Emirates and Israel against Russia, Iran, Syria, HizbAllah held Lebanon and Hamas held Palestinian territories. It’s going to go down soon. The Russian fires are a sign the pieces have begun to move. Marginalizing the Russian nationalist aggressors is very important. These fires have them reeling.

Russia is willing to gamble that things won't get out of hand. Iran is a customer for Russian arms and technology. Russia is also trying to form a co-op of oil and gas producing countries in order to manipulate prices. And it may be Russia sees Iran as a surrogate who can sponsor terrorist outfits around the world to advance Russian objectives. Putin is indistinguishable from the Russian mafia.
