Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)
“General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, head of Basij Resistance Force, tours Quneitra.”
If Iran has no hostile intent towards Israel why are their generals touring the border Syria and Israel?
“Not only does Hamas continue to incite violence against Israel, refusing to work toward peace, Yediot Achronot’s Elior Levy reports that the terror organization’s leader, Khaled Mashal, also continues to blame the Jewish state for said lack of peace.”
This is laughable since Hamas is spending millions meant for Gaza reconstruction to build attack tunnels in to Israeli territory for the purposes of killing and kidnapping Israeli civilians.
“In overnight operation, IDF bulldozes hideout of Mohammed Fakieh near Hebron, who was in hiding since the attack early July.”
“Israeli aircraft struck Syrian military targets around Quneitra Monday night after two Syrian mortar shells landed on Golan causing no casualties or damage. The IDF spokesman said that Israel holds the Syrian authorities responsible and would not tolerate infringements of is sovereignty or its citizens’ safety.”
“PA Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki asks Arab League for help filing suit against Britain, in bizarre address in Mauritania.”
Ironically, UK aide to the PA was spent on Palestinian terror groups. So if any one has a case for a lawsuit it is Israel.
“Israel’s Foreign Ministry launched a social media campaign this month to convince the Palestinian leadership to stop honoring deceased terrorists, a practice that makes genuine peace nearly impossible to achieve.”
The Israelis are begging the Palestinians not to incite to violence. But they just don’t listen.
“Conditions for Palestinians working in Israel and the settlements are much better than in the Palestinian Authority, according to an Israeli Arab labor lawyer and a Palestinian laborer in two interviews on the PA TV program Workers’ Affairs. The laborer explained that conditions are so much better that many Palestinian workers prefer or are “forced” to choose to work for Israeli employers.”
“Should Israel give up its freedom to operate in Judea and Samaria, the Palestinian Authority “won’t survive, and the Jordanian kingdom will fall too,” former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon warned on Wednesday, during a speech at Bar-Ilan University.”
Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)
“A former U.S. commander of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), a NATO-led security mission in Afghanistan, was the organizer of the July 15 military coup attempt in Turkey, sources said. General John F. Campbell was one of the top figures who organized and managed the soldiers behind the failed coup attempt in Turkey, sources close to ongoing legal process of pro-coup detainees said.”
The article is long on speculation and short on facts. Conspiracy theories have a long shelf life in Turkey though. I still think the coup was self engineered by Erdogan.
“Turkey’s purge of Gulen supporters continued on Saturday with the closure of hundreds of private schools, charities and other institutions suspects of links with the US-based cleric. Ankara declared a state of emergency after a failed military coup.”
“He also recognizes Israel, enough to have distanced himself from Erdogan’s position on Gaza and the flotilla. A man of principle, he refused to back down from this statement, that greatly angered the Turkish president. This contributed greatly to the deterioration of the relationship of the two Muslim leaders.”
A day after the terror attack at the French church, where ISIS terrorists murdered a priest, the locals cannot understand how their city became a target for terrorists: “There has never been tensions here between Muslims and Christians.”
- “What “provocation” had the murdered priest, Father Jacques Hamel, provided?
- An enemy willing to slaughter the most rollicking secularists and the most devout priest, both in their places of work, is an enemy with the entirety of French civilization and culture in its sights. It is an enemy — extremist Islam — clearly intent not on some kind of tributary offering or suit for peace, but rather an enemy which seeks its opponent’s total and utter destruction.
- Should this not be the moment for the entirety of one of the greatest cultures on earth to unite as one, turn on this common enemy and destroy it first, in the name of civilization?”
“Karabila said he had met with Hamel on several occasions and had been part of an interfaith committee for the past 18 months.“We talked about religion and how to live together. It has been 18 months that civilians have been attacked, now they are attacking religious symbols, using our religion as a pretext. It is no longer possible,” he said.”
This latest attack demonstrates how pointless interfaithism is. Islam seeks to dominate and will only accept submission not coexistence.
“The terror attacks in Nice and Wurzburg are the latest manifestations of what should now be seen as a still fairly low-level Islamist insurgency taking place in a number of west European countries. The fact that this insurgency has been allowed to kindle itself and slowly emerge before now bursting forth represents a profound failure of Western European political culture and of the continent’s elites.”
“At a press conference following an emergency cabinet meeting on Wednesday, France’s Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said that he had decided to deploy an additional 10,000 troops nationwide due to the country’s state of emergency and the recent series of ISIS attacks in France and other European countries. He said 4,000 troops will be sent to Paris and 6,000 are to be deployed in other cities.”
“Young, unaffiliated “lone wolf” terrorists present a huge challenge to intelligence agencies across the world. They are unpredictable, untrackable and almost impossible to stop in advance. As more countries face this growing threat, we spoke to a senior IDF official to see what steps can be taken.”
The IDF has alot of expertise and experience in this area. Western nations should heed their advice.
