Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“Raids said to target four trucks loaded with ballistic missiles; no immediate reports of casualties.”
Another strike, while the Russians sit idly by.
“Terrorist opens fire on car in Binyamin region, shattering windows but fortunately causing no wounds with 10 bullets.”
“TEL AVIV — From surging procurement of advanced simulators to a massive new urban training base with underground facilities for anti-tunnel warfare, the Israeli Army is changing the way it prepares for high-intensity, maneuvering battle.”
“The militant group is at odds with Iran over the war in Syria.”
Perhaps true but they still have the UN and Amnesty International.
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“The 28 allies have committed to boosting Turkey’s security while augmenting the international fight against the Islamic State, after a 1-2 December meeting of NATO foreign ministers in Brussels.”
Will Turkey drag NATO into war?
“The United States has been eliminating a mid- to high-level Islamic State figure every two days, on average, contributing to President Obama’s decision to send a new Special Operations force to Iraq to intensify efforts to locate and kill militant leaders there and in Syria, a senior administration official said Thursday.”
And yet it is not working. Either what they claim is ‘high-level’ is not really high-level or they are just lying. How can they know this with any certainty?
“In reality, Ezekiel 38 has significant preconditions preventing its prophetic fulfillment. Ezekiel 38:8-13 mandates that Israel must be dwelling securely, without walls, bars, or gates, and in the center of their land, probably alluding to the landmass described in Genesis 15:18. Additionally, the Jewish State must be in receipt of great spoil. In my estimation, Israel today is not fulfilling these conditions.”
Recent gas and oil discoveries in or near Israel may meet condition number 2 but I agree with Mr. Salus condition 1 has not been met yet.
“Political correctness stopped woman from alerting authorities over suspicious activity.”
Probably the greatest weapon in the Islamic terrorist arsenal is the West’s own political correctness. They know this, they use it, and they exploit it.
“President Obama, of course, was quick to blame guns (all of which in this case were legally purchased) and to say the solution is to do something about guns. No, Mr. President, the problem is not guns. The problem is Islam, and the solution is to do something about Islam. The key is not getting control of guns, it’s getting control of Islam. That’s not Islamophobia, it’s Islamorealism….”
“The activation allowed Israel’s warplanes to test how the S-300’s lock-on system works, gathering data on its powerful tracking radar and how it might be blinded or bluffed.”
Interesting, they are training against the S-300 when the S-400 is parked just north of their border. Maybe they are not that much different . It could be Russia does not export the S-400 that much knowing other hostile countries might be able to obtain them. Iran is expected to get the S-300 soon from Russia.
“That political agenda is being pursued even though, as Inhofe predicted, the scientific consensus behind “global warming” is already collapsing, and the reality that “climate change” is simply an excuse to fuel the growth of government and the erosion of American sovereignty is now becoming increasingly clear.”
