Articles of the Day 8/22/16: Beware of Interfaithism!

Current Major Trends To Watch

(=increasing, =decreasing =no change)

Deepening Russian involvement in the Middle East–
Temple Mount tensions–
Palestinian terror–
Palestinian incitement–
US retreat from Middle East– US losing Turkey to Russia?
Pope Francis active in politics–
Northern border tension–
Southern border tension– ISIS offshoot fires rockets into Israel. IDF responds against Hamas very forcefully with air attacks, artillery and tank fire. ⇑⇑
One world government advancement–
One world religion advancement– Pope Francis expands on Interfaithism.

 

Inner Ring (Countries or terror groups that border Israel)

Hamas accuses Israel of seeking to change balance

“The overnight strikes of the Israeli Air Force in retaliation for the rocket fired at Sderot from the Strip were unusual in their scale; Hamas has replied by holding Israel ‘responsible for the escalation in the Gaza Strip.”

Senior IDF official explains the Syrian war on our northern border

“As the Syrian Civil War continues to garner worldwide attention and newspaper headlines, we in the IDF joined a senior official for an exclusive tour of our northern border. Here’s what we learned about the situation in the Syrian Golan and how it affects us.”

Does Israel recognize its own sovereignty on the Golan?

“Ministry of Finance reports presented to US include a map that does not appear to reflect the Israeli law that applied sovereignty in 1981.”

Israel: Hezbollah behind explosives found near Lebanon border

“Defense official says 3 charges discovered by farmer in Metulla last month were to be used in attacks against IDF, civilians.”

2 years after Operation Protective Edge: Is Hamas on the verge of collapse?

“30 years after its establishment, Hamas is facing many simultaneous crises: the disconnect from the Arab world, the tense relations with Fatah, 40 thousand officials who don’t receive salaries and a majority of Gaza residents who are dependent on humanitarian aid all cast a shadow on the organization’s future.”

Outer Ring (countries or terror groups that are close to but not bordering Israel)

The Sderot rocket – tied to covert Israel-ISIS war

“However, say our military experts, mechanical strikes against Hamas in reprisal for ISIS-linked attacks have long been bankrupt as an effective tactic. Even though Hamas works hand in glove with the Islamic State in Sinai, Egypt and Libya, the Palestinian group has no role in ISIS decisions to attack Israel or any influence over its considerations. The global Islamists may therefore be expected to follow up on their rocket attack on Sderot undeterred by the IDF response.”

With 50 raids in 2 hours, has Liberman begun to implement his new security plan?

“In first major display of force under new defense chief, IDF conducts largest bombardment since 2014 war in response to rocket strike; that doesn’t mean a new war is imminent, however.”

Analysis: Turkey’s potentially momentous shift on Assad

“CAIRO (AP) — For five years fighting has raged in Syria — a humanitarian disaster destabilizing the region and the world. The aim of Bashar Assad’s opponents’ always was to drive the Syrian leader from power, but they have lacked the means to dislodge him. Now an inflection point may be at hand, with powerful opposition backer Turkey suggesting Assad, despite his brutality in the war, could play a role in an unspecified transition period.”

Turkey: Assad can be part of transition period in Syria

“Turkish PM says both US, Russia know Syrian leader isn’t unifier; over 300 civilians said killed in Aleppo in recent weeks.”

Kremlin Presses Turkey for Access to NATO’s Incirlik Air Base, Home to US Nukes

“Russian officials have reached out to Ankara to request access to the American-built base as a convenient launch pad for airstrikes in the Syrian theater, but it remains to be seen whether such cooperation will roil NATO’s feathers.”

Major shift going on in Turkey towards Russia and away from the US. Has Obama lost Turkey?

Iran says Russian use of air base for Syria strikes over ‘for now’

“DUBAI (Reuters) – Russia has stopped using an Iranian air base for strikes in Syria, Iran’s foreign ministry announced on Monday, bringing an abrupt halt to an unprecedented deployment that was criticized both by the White House and some Iranian lawmakers.”
