Do you really think having a super-sized Hamas/Hezbollah (i.e. a Muslim Brotherhood Syrian government) with 10 times Israel's land area and 3 times Israel's population, armed with MiG's and SAM's on Israel's borders is a good thing? Syria's Alawite regime has been funneling Iranian supplies to Hezbollah in exchange for Iranian aid to Syria. A Muslim Brotherhood-run Syria will devote the entire resources of the state towards killing as many Israelis as they can. The Alawites have traditionally been hostile towards Israel because they were using Arab Nationalism as a shield against Sunni Arab resentment at being ruled by Alawites. The sectarian war against Sunnis has basically destroyed the whole idea of Arab Nationalism in Syria. It's now everybody in Syria against the Sunni Arabs, who are now being financed by the Gulf's Sunni Arabs - the same people who are keeping Hamas alive and financing al Qaeda. Why would Israel shun this opportunity to reach an unspoken understanding with the Alawites - the same kind of understanding it reached with Jordan's King Hussein after the 1967 war? Especially with Egypt about to hand power over to a Muslim Brotherhood government that is about to march against Israel? If Syria's falls to the Ikhwan, Jordan won't be far behind, given its long and porous border with Syria.
I hear ya. A the time I could not understand her goals in visiting Syria. Good grief!
I don’t want Syria falling into MB hands, or the Alawites regaining mastery, or any combination. If Assad has attack helicopters, give the MB stingers. Let them just beat each other bloody and finished. The MB wants to kill as many Jooos! as possible, but Assad is in partnership with Iran and Hizbollah to utterly destroy Israel. So keep them at each other. Every attack helicopter felled by a Stinger is one less. Every MB fighter killed by an attack helicopter is one less. Let them kill each other to their hearts’ content, and that way there’s hope for Israel, Syrian Druze, Syrian Christians, Alawites, Kurds, and all the other would-be victims of them both.
Those killed since March last year comprised 9,862 civilians, 3,470 soldiers and 783 army deserters, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. The Britain-based watchdog counts rebel fighters who are not deserters from the army as civiliansThose 3400+ killed while attempting to desert are still counted as soldiers. The Alawites take a back seat to no one, including the Sunni, for agitprop.
As I’ve said many, many times, the nice thing about a muzzie civil war is, everyone wins.
Follow the money — anyone in or out of gov’t who is opposed to US energy production should be considered as funded by OPEC and/or one or more of its member states.
There was that sense of sacred obligation that, frankly, we have lost during these last two wars, Obama said. I want to restore that. Its also important that a president speaks to military service as an OBLIGATION not just of some, but of many., Barack Hussein Obama Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm
What on Earth Is Going On in the Middle East?
The message at the link is by David Davis , the pastor of a congregation on Mount Carmel in Israel .(this congregation was planted by David Wilkerson ) He is in contact with born again believers in Syria and Egypt and many other Islamic nations . He goes into detail about what is going on and the persecution and exactly what this so called democracy movement is doing . It’s very much worth taking the little bit of time to listen to it .
Thanks for the ping!
RT (Russia) news says that the helicopters going to Syria are being *returned* to Syria after undergoing routine maintenance and that Syria currently has no orders for new helicopters.
Sounds to me like another Clinton is trying to wag a dog for the upcoming election.
Daniel 7:8 While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a human being and a mouth that spoke boastfully.
The third horn/king was uprooted 2011, Muammar Kaddafi, before that Hosni Mubarak and Saddam Hussein. Uprooted is the perfect word as these three had nearly 100 years of combined rule in the Islamic world.
As for the little one
Daniel 8:23 In the latter part of their reign, when rebels have become completely wicked, a stern-faced king, a master of intrigue, will arise.
The stern faced king stands up!
Isaiah 17:1 The burden against Damascus. Behold, Damascus will cease from being a city, And it will be a ruinous heap.
See: Psalm 83 for the lineup ... and Google Amman seven mountains fyi.
Love it, both the historical anecdote and the analogue to the U.N.
