Posted on 09/14/2012 3:13:05 PM PDT by combat_boots
Israel media - Channel 2 - just reported that the US-commanded Multi-National Force Observors headquarters in the Sinai is under assault. Salafists laid seige to the building this afternoon and some 50 armed men stormed it. There is fighting going on in the building and there are dead inside. The MFO is the force that was established under the Israel-Egypt peace treaty. It is charged with guaranteeing the demilitarization of the Sinai.
The MFO has two bases. I believe that the one under attack is in northern Sinai, built on an old Israeli Air Force base.
The MFO has come under attack several times since the outset of the US-supported Islamic revolution there. The US approved and forced Israel to accept the deployment of Egyptian tanks in the Sinai some weeks ago as part of a much touted counterterror offensive of the Egyptian military. Its results were inconclusive but at Israel's insistence, the tanks were removed a couple weeks ago. Egyptian President Morsi supports the remilitarization of the Sinai. It is hard not to see the strategic implications of this attack on the MFO.
Caroline Glick is a powerhouse.
“Column One: The reign of imagination”

“Did US Ambassador Christopher Stevens understand why he and his fellow Americans were being murdered? “
I suppose the MFO weren’t allowed to carry loaded weapons, either./sarc
This appears, more and more, as an organized and concerted effort by radical Muslims to create a military situation in order to re-elect BHO2. They aren’t stupid and know that Americans do not change Presidents during wartime. But would the Muslim Brotherhood think this up on their own?
Or, were they advised by someone in the White House to do this.
Is this the September/October surprise?
Seems the ‘2012 apocalypse’ has started. Early stages and most don’t even recognize what’s happening as such. 0bama is the Anti-Christ and is fomenting chaos and NOT SPEAKING OR ACTING FERVENTLY AGAINST IT.
My guess is at the feet of The Iranian.
“By Any Means Necessary”
Islamofanatics are getting attention. That is giving them encouragement to perpetrate more of these attacks throughout the world.
Unless the Western powers quell these, they will get worse and could develop into regional wars.
Leader-from-Behind is in serious jeopardy, if it is perceived that he is the new Jimmy Carter of Middle Eastern affairs.
Why would they ever need them?
They're just observers...
Yes. It is telling that Valerie Jarrett had a full security detail during her vacation and the Ambassador to Libya did not.
“...most dont even recognize whats happening as such.”
The spirit of delusion.
Next I suppose we'll hear an apology from Obama for the presence of the MFO in the northern Sinai.
” Seems the 2012 apocalypse has started.”
You may be right.
Excellent piece by Glick.
Interesting concept and one I have thought about the last 2 weeks.
None of this surprises me.
Glick wrote this extremely well.
This is going to get much worse as the Muslims are not getting the response they deserve. They are building a head of steam, and getting to the point they think they are unstoppable to the point it will take something spectacular to stop them.
They are on the juice.
They are if they think that holds for the moron who started it by his own incompetence.
You don’t go around and reject God...3 times.
You see....there are consequences to that sort of thing.
Perhaps tonight one should read Joshua 24 in its entirety. 0bama’s snub of Israel, the rejection of God, and then 0bama’s rejecting Israel....
A time of choosing is very much upon us.
15 But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.
