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.

Be careful not to interchange the word God with the Lord.  I don't think they are the same thing.  Joshua prayed to God when he was fighting the battles of the Lord.

So... who's the lord and who's the god, then, and who prays to whom between them?

just asking

Go to the source documents and see what words were used there.  Neither Lord nor God are Hebrew words.  If one needs to argue, they should discover the original Hebrew and argue over that - if the original language provides anything to argue about.

These people are defending themselves from an inbred populace following a murderous ideology who more than likely are a hair away from getting their hands on chemical/bio weapons. 

What would you do, oh kletchy, manly avatar bearer?  Use that overpriced gas impingment system you bought last week to do the same, that's what.

And if you bother to read it, new or old side, there are plenty of references to what happens when God gets tired of fucking repeating himself.

"Why does Israel exist as a sovereign nation in the modern era? "

The question is How, not "Why".    How is, they are hardworking, smart, modern people who've adopted modern western concepts of freedom, ordered liberty that is, and it shows.   They can kick the crap out of the pre-modern shithole societies in the neighborhood because are who they are, they're capable, non-retarded.   Also, they pretty much have to, from time to time.

Totentänzerlied's picture

Wrong. They're cut-throat socialist parasites who use every trick in the book to goad the American public and anyone else who'll listen to fight the battles they pick with goddamn near everyone every day. Why do they get to be "good guys" according to the MSM? Because they play the game so very well, and do all in their power to help the zionist-anglo-american project. There is not a country on Earth that was not offered the same deal, if only it agreed to sit down, shut up, be colonized, have its culture(s)/religion(s) eviscerated, establish a central bank and nothing-backed fiat currency, and go into massive debt. Israel was created by the same people who established this system, Being under the protection of the biggest bully in the world has its perks.

Of course "otto" you are too stupid to get the irony that a troll who posts as Otto Skorzeny is taking the side of unarmed civilians

Leave the hammering to God.

You do know that GOD doesn't exist right? You really need to talk to a psychiatrist that can assist you with your mental illness.

And judging by the the voting above it is clearly demonstrated again that on ZH a substantial number of "the bright and intelligent" believe and perpetuate their brainwashing parents fairy tales.

Okay tell us then, what exactly happens to consciousness after death.  And please no beliefs, just proof. 

smiler03's picture

Your name has the word "Reason" in it?? Good grief.


Option a) It dies with the body.

Option b) It breaks all laws of physics and goes up into the clouds to join billions of others, excepting some which go to a fiery place.

Try telling that to Dr Eben Alexander MD. He had the most amazing near death esperience while clinically brain dead. This is from a guy who was a complete sceptic befor it happened to him.

And he should know his brain condition becaus he's one of the worlds top neurosurgeons and he knows full well it was not an halucination.

smiler03's picture

Yeah yeah yeah. I've been near to death AND died. I had zero experience, which is inline with almost everybody who wasn't recalling a dream. I had the most bizarre hallucinations but they were unfeasibly ridiculous to be real and would've happened when my brain was alive, otherwise it doesn't work.


This guy has zero credibility because he always considered himself a christian, which in itself is a waking hallucination.

"a hair away from getting their hands on chemical/bio weapons."

now where have I heard that before.....? 

Poetic injustice's picture

Same reliable source as last time.

object_orient's picture

Those chem/bio weapons are distractions from the anti-tank/anti-aircraft weapons. Wouldn't want to give anyone the idea that Lebanon is rearming with DEFENSIVE weapons to repel the next Israeli invasion.

Ah, but this time it's actually a "pubic hair way".

Last time it was chest hair.

Don't people read the memos!??

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.

DaveyJones's picture

Correction, just like the "christians," their political leaders love war, the citizens...not so much 

secret_sam's picture

    Wealthy Islmaic states could have given every single person a home, a job, a life,

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.

I seem to recall reading that  Gaddafi was doing just that, but someone had a better plan for his gold and oil wealth...

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.

Q: THESE people are the "children of God?"

A: These people are the warriors of  God.


Q: What type of God ...?


"Yahweh", is an abbreviation of the longer name, "Yahweh Sabaoth."

It means, "He who musters armies."

Yahweh, Brutal God of War

aka, satan...    Jesus tried to warn about this, so they killed him..... now we have "judeo-christianity"...  an oxymoron if ever there was one.

Docmented evidence of TPTB usurping a freedom movement. Not all that dissimilar from what happened to the Tea Party.

"YHWH - Tetragramaton, Adonai, Jehovah used in Witchcraft

22 Guess Names from the Tetragrammaton: Yahueh Iahueh
Yahuah Iahuah Yahevahe Iahevahe Yohwah Iohwah Yohweh
Iohweh Yahwah Iahuwah Iahwe Yahwe Iehwah Yehweh Iehweh
Yahweh Iahweh Yehwah Iahwah Yahohewah Iahohewah Jove

Freemasons admits Jehovah, YHWH, is core of their tradition

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"!

I suggest reading some of Michael A Hoffman's works, to understand the difference between the Talmudic god the rabbis, whose belief system arose during the Babylonian exile,  and the Hebrew God of the prophets and patriarchs.

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.

And who did Saul Alinsky dedicate his book "Rules fro Radicals" to? Lucifer of course ...

Totentänzerlied's picture

If you believe your god is God, it is irrelevant whether it really is or is not, that's kind of the whole point of FAITH. This is such a simple and fundamental aspect of theology that I feels awkward putting it into words.

Bandit und Buster's picture

They CLAIM to be 'the children of God' .   Fixed it for ya.

 Actually thier god is Lucifer, but they seldom let that be known.

Truth is they have no part of true Israel, they are mostly Ashkanazi Turks & Mongols (see Alfred Lilenthal 'The 13th Tribe') 

Also Revelation 2:9 and 3:9
