Have Israel and the Islamists joined forces against Iran?
According to DEBKA the answer is yes. But do we believe DEBKA?
On Nov 23rd DEBKA reported Obamas pledge of US troops to Sinai next week won Israels nod for ceasefire....it will be a great victory for PM Netanyahu and Israel.
But if that is true, why hasnt Netanyahu mentioned it in concrete terms and why has no one corroborated the report.
The article explains:
When Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrived in Jerusalem from Bangkok Tuesday, she tried assuring Netanyahu that President Obama had decided to accelerate the construction of an elaborate US system of electronic security fences along the Suez Canal and northern Sinai. It would also cork up the Philadelphi route through which arms are smuggled into the Gaza Strip. (The US Sinai fence project was disclosed only by DEBKA-Net-Weekly 564 on Nov. 9).
Then on Tuesday, there was another bombshell. The Government of Israel, which had been threatening all sorts of retaliation should Abbas go to the UN, announced yesterday that it would keep a low profile on the issue. Another disappointment. What was going on here?
I was starting to lose faith in the possibility that DEBKA had it right. But why had they not published a correction or something?
Well on Wednesday, DEBKA doubled down on the original article and reported that the Gaza operation was supposed to be an anti-Iran coup.
The eight-day Gaza duel between Israel and Hamas was the showcase. Behind it, a coup went forward, masterminded by at least three intelligence wizards: Israels Mossad Direct Tamir Pardo, Turkish National Intelligence Organization MIT chief, Hakan Fidan and the Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Jassim al Thani, who also heads the emirates intelligence service. The CIA was in close touch.

Uh, DEBKA is not something I would be putting faith in.
but we can always trust Babelfish
On Nov 23rd DEBKA reported Obamas pledge of US troops to Sinai next week won Israels nod for ceasefire....it will be a great victory for PM Netanyahu and Israel. But if that is true, why hasnt Netanyahu mentioned it in concrete terms and why has no one corroborated the report[?]Gosh, it's almost as if the Debka-only report wasn't true in the first place. But that can't be it.
A knowledgeable and trustworthy co worker told me that DEBKA is a deliberate Israeli source of disinformation. Not saying that I buy that theory, but it is plausible.
