Israeli Jets Bomb Syrian Military Site

Tyler Durden's picture




 

In what was the first clear instance of aggression by Israel toward Syria, overnight Israeli jets conducted a bombing run over a military site in Syria, targeting what according to Israel was a military convoy heading to Lebanon. As Al Arabiya reports: "Israeli jets bombed a convoy on Syria's border with Lebanon on Wednesday, sources told Reuters, apparently targeting weapons destined for Hezbollah in what some called a warning to Damascus not to arm Israel's Lebanese enemy. "The target was a truck loaded with weapons, heading from Syria to Lebanon," said one Western diplomat, adding that the consignment may well have included anti-aircraft missiles. The overnight attack, which several sources placed on the Syrian side of the border, followed warnings from Israel that it was ready to act to prevent the revolt against President Bashar al-Assad leading to Syria's chemical weapons and modern rockets reaching either his Hezbollah allies or his Islamist enemies."

More on the target and location of the attack:

A source among the Syrian rebels said an air strike around dawn (0430 GMT) blasted a convoy on a mountain track about 5 kilometres (3 miles) south of where the main Damascus-Beirut highway crosses the border. Its load probably included high-tech anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles, but not chemical weapons.

 

"It attacked trucks carrying sophisticated weapons from the regime to Hezbollah," the source said, adding that it took place inside Syria, though the border is poorly defined in the area.

 

A regional security source said the target was weaponry given by Assad's military to fellow Iranian ally Hezbollah:

 

"This episode boils down to a warning by Israel to Syria and Hezbollah not to engage in the transfer of sensitive weapons," the source said. "Assad knows his survival depends on his military capabilities and he would not want those capabilities neutralised by Israel - so the message is this kind of transfer is simply not worth it, neither for him nor Hezbollah."

 

With official secrecy shrouding the event, few details were corroborated by multiple sources. All those with knowledge of the event - from several countries - spoke anonymously.

 

There was no comment from the Israeli or Syrian governments nor Hezbollah. Israel's ally the United States declined all comment. A Lebanese security source said its territory was not hit, though the army reported a heavy presence of Israeli jets through the night after days of unusually frequent incursions.

Iran has previously warned that any attack on Syria is the same as an attack on Iran. For now, however, Iran has not issued a statement:

There was no immediate comment on the incident from Tehran, which Israel views as its principal enemy and with which it is engaged in a bitter confrontation over Iran's nuclear programme.

Perhaps what is more interesting is how Russia and/or China which have made clear that Syria is a strategic geopolitical center for bnoth in the past will react, if at all.

Keep an eye on Brent as the middle east may be finally coming out of hibernation.

It's an act of war:  Israel called Iran down, now the question is, was Iran bluffing when they said an act of war on Syria is an act of war on Iran.

It doesn't end there though, because China has said an act of war on Iran is an act of war on China.

So either the West wins this hand or chips are about to be pushed into the pot by the East.

It is an escalation worth watching.

Operation Orchard was an Israeli airstrike on a nuclear reactor in the Deir ez-Zor region of Syria carried out just after midnight on September 6, 2007. The White House and Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) later confirmed that American intelligence had also indicated the site was a nuclear facility with a military purpose, though Syria denies this.

How much are you paid to slant against Israel?

Israel is a country, and like all other countries has its issues.

 

As all is right and good on most-other countries...

Before accusing Israel, check you data. You'll find out that Israel does better than most other countries with the very same issues.

 

The racism accusation has been raised by those who rather blame others for their own undoing.

For starters try being a Christian or make-love-no-war hippie in Saudi or Egypt. How long till you stop partying?

Or, who actually were the people who supplied the black slaves in the 1700-1800s? Yes, Muslim Arabs.

Yes, the Israelites chose their god (one of the many gods available at the time) to support. They defended their chosen god against other gods' armies and conquered lands for him ... and in return the god of the Israelites rewarded them. And yes he is/was a jealous and petty god.

My guess is that a lot of the problems we have today stem from the desires of this jealous and petty god and his demands upon his human servants.

Actually, Yahweh chose Israel, not the other way around.

 

Yahweh actually needed no defending, rather he delivered victory into the hands of the Israelites when they chose to abide in Him.

 

And yes Yahweh is jealous for the hearts of his people, but He is not petty. 

 

Your guess would be wrong; all good things come from Yahweh himself, the Creator. He does not create problems, but solves them, as is evidenced by the living Christ that has already defeated sin for the world.

 

This verse from Matthew pretty well sums it up, "At that time Jesus declared, "I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to little children; yes, Father, for such was your gracious will. All things have been handed over to me by my Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him. Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."

 

You don't have to accept these things, but they are there for you if you want them.

Kind of depends which version of the story you read and believe, eh? There are many versions of the same story and the English versions of the old testment vary greatly from the Hebrew and earlier writings, such as the Sumerian, which went into much greater detail.

Abraham was sent along with an army by Melchizedek to serve one of the gods by defending his territory against an invading army. In return Abraham's people were blessed and protected by the god, even though they tended (and to this day, tend) to stray in their morals and ethics and on occasion have been punished for their transgressions.

New testament is completely different. Christ made an appearance before his time (or so said the demons) to help bring the people of this world into a new age ... different from that of the Hebrew god.

I always thought that it was interesting that the very first of the Ten Commandments was "Thou shalt have no other god before me", and not "I am the ONE true god --- worship me".  Even the "God" of the Old Testament apparently acknowledges that he is not alone, merely jealous and demanding that his "chosen people" worship only HIM.

Wealthy Islmaic states could have given every single person a home, a job, a life, away from that place. But just as the Jews love war the Muslims love it as much. Their gods are fucking murdering scum.

That's bullshit.  The "wealthy Islamic states" don't have jobs and homes for all their current residents.  You just don't hear too much about it 'cause they're our "allies."

It's as misguided as saying the "wealthy" USA could give all the poor campesinos in Mexico homes, jobs, and lives.

Please show some numbers or facts to support this claim.

In the last 100 years or less, the MENA region countries have had populations increase by over 10-fold. Has the available water and food also increased 10 fold? Or has the reduction in imports and declines in local currency against USD caused the "Arab Spring"?

I suspect the people are angry with their governments and willing to challenge them now, when they were afraid to do so before, not because they suddenly all decided they want democracy, but rather, because they are hungry.

Jeh-Hovah: the suffix "hovah" is No. 1943 in Strong's Hebrew Dictionary and has the meaning of "ruin, mischief." It is another form of No. 1942, 'havvah', which is translated "calamity, iniquity, mischief, mischievous (thing), naughtiness, naughty, noisome, perverse thing, substance, very wickedness." Put the two (Je + hovah) together and you get "God of ruin, mischief, calamity, perversion, and wickedness". And don't forget 'noisome' -- which means it stinks! Jehovah is The God of Evil"!

The greatest deception ever perpetrated!

YHWH is NOT their God... Jesus /Yahshua told them "you are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in truth, because there is no truth in him..." John 8:44

“Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer   -so I wasn’t lying. -and we are his chosen people.  Lucifer is very much alive.”     

The above is an exact quote of Harold Wallace Rosenthal, former top administrative Aide to the then Senator Jacob Javits, who was since defeated in the 1980 election.

"In everything, we are destroyers--even in the instruments of destruction to which we turn for relief...We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands." —Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, pages 152, 155, and 147.


Benjamin H. Freedman was an insider in the world Zionist conspiracy. He was a successful Jewish businessman of New York City who was at one time the principal owner of the Woodbury Soap Company. He broke with organized Jewry in 1945, when by the grace of God he was saved and became a Christian. He spent the remainder of his life and the great preponderance of his considerable fortune, exposing the Jewish conspiracy against the United States and the world. "Mr. Freedman knew what he was talking about because he had been an insider at the highest levels of Jewish organizations and Jewish machinations to gain power over our nation. Mr. Freedman was personally acquainted with Bernard Baruch, Samuel Untermyer, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Kennedy, and John F. Kennedy, and many more movers and shakers of our times." In the following 1961 speech given at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. on behalf of Conde McGinley's patriotic newspaper of that time, Common Sense, Freedman revealed the plans the Zionist Jews have for World War III.   Listen to him reveal in his own words the Zionist conspiracy against the United States.

All the attention to will they/won't they bomb Iran nicely takes attention away from the very systematic destruction of Irans nuke program that's been going on the last several years. Scientists assasinated, computer virus attacks, and a steady stream of "unexplained " explosions at critical locations. This is all much more effective and much less public than all this will they/won't they stuff.

so true, there is no more war (and no more congressional or constitutional involvement). There is only a "War on Terror." Although it carries the word within it's title, it follows none of the rules, never ends, has no boundaries, no age limit, and as each day goes on, is an ever more blatant, desperate but ultimately ineffective grab for resource - mostly oil.
