Syrian reports of an Israeli attack on Damascus Airport emerged on Wednesday evening. Opposition media outlets reported that explosions were heard at the airport, followed by a power outage and the temporary grounding of aircraft.
If this turns out to be true it would be a big deal. A strike right in the heart of Damascus makes all of them all look pathetic. Russia not willing to risk their assets confronting the IAF.
Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“Jewish Home head responds sharply to Netanyahu’s statement about possible unilateral move in Judea, Samaria.”
Let’s hope Netanyahu is just saying what liberal politicians in the US want to hear and does not mean it. He is looking for a massive increase in military funds so he might just say anything.
“Israeli security forces have arrested 24 senior-level Hamas members in Qalqilya. The Shin Bet estimates that they were funded by Hamas in Gaza and Qatar in order to reestablish the terror organization’s activity in the West Bank city.”
Hunger strikes soon to follow. Then release. Then return to terror. The life of a Palestinian terrorist is so predictable.
“Two young Palestinian boys aged just 12 and 13 stabbed and seriously wounded a Jewish security guard at the light rail station in Jerusalem’s northern Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood on Tuesday.”
“The surge in Palestinian terrorism across the Jewish state that began a few weeks ago spurred an Israeli data analyst to create and publish an extensive interactive spreadsheet detailing the time, place and circumstances of each attack.”
This is terrific evidence that should be presented to ICC for prosecution of war crimes committed by Palestinians. They are so fond of using the ICC perhaps they should prosecuted as well.
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“According to intelligence reports from southern Russia and the Crimean Peninsula, more Russian combat helicopter units are under orders to stand ready for transfer to Syria. Moscow is evidently preparing to take over from the Iranians, the Syrians and Hizballah the heavy-lifting of the war to stop further ISIS advances. More helicopters are needed to support this offensive if it is to go forward on all fronts.”
“The Islamic State siege of the Syrian air base in Aleppo has been broken after nearly two years. This marks a significant victory to the Syria-Iran-Russia coalition.”
“ERBIL, Kurdistan Region — Iraqi Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi claimed Tuesday that Iraqi joint forces have made massive advances from all directions around the Islamic State-held city of Ramadi in Anbar province, and the provincial capital would soon be liberated from the extremist group.”
“Egyptian media outlets have reported that the Egyptian Intelligence Services foiled an attempt to assassinate Abdel Fattah El-Sisi this past August. Several attempts to assassinate El-Sisi took place in the past during his service as Defense Minister.”
Unfortunately, it might be only a matter of time for El-Sisi.
“Something Cornuke did not mention in his book is that two warning signs have been discovered that clearly indicate the Temple was located on the Temple Mount. These are signs that warned that non-Jews could not cross the stone balustrade that separated the sacred Temple area from the Court of the Gentiles. These signs are mentioned in the writings of Josephus.”
“Army emphasizes efficiency as new 5-year plans sees units transferring to civilian hands, career troops downsized to 40,000.”
“The dwindling Christian population of the Middle East could vanish completely within a decade unless the global community intervenes, say alarmed aid groups who say followers of the Bible are being killed, driven from their land or forced to renounce their faith at an unprecedented pace.”
I think the best thing now is prayer for our brothers ans sisters in the Middle East. Secular Western governments will not help them but they do have God on their side. Their suffering serves a higher purpose we cannot see.
“Most businesses are taxed at individual — not corporate — rates, because they are set up as sole proprietorships, partnerships and LLCs. You can be sure that the next effort will be to establish a minimum tax for all businesses everywhere on the globe, which will be quickly extended to all individuals. What right does the United States or France have to tell other countries what their tax rates must be? As global taxes are increasingly implemented, Americans and citizens of other countries will lose their democratic right to determine their own taxes — and Americans will be right back where they were under King George III. What happened to “no taxation without representation”?”
“What is the Global Parliament of Mayors (GPM) and why would USMC be a perfect partner? GPM is a project, a “political and civic institution by, for, and of cities.” The problem with this organization is that it is another phantom layer of government that was not elected by the people, for the people, and does not necessarily act in the best interests of the American people. Mayors are elected by the people to represent their local interests, not the global interests as dictated by the United Nations Agenda 2030, the U.N. Agenda 21 on steroids.”
