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.

Once and for all, the issues involved with Israel, Israel’s enemies and U.S. foreign policy simply must be discussed at length; Zionists and anti-Semitic charges aside. Historical perspective now is extremely critical in that so many pertinent developments have been hidden from public view. The events of Weimar Germany, one of the most taboo of subjects, have a critical bearing these days on the activities of Israel being they are central to what’s happening in the United States.

Jewish financial and social involvement, for example, was very extensive in Weimar Germany. Modern day Zionists call recounting these facts anti-Semitic, as they also call descriptions of Jewish control of America’s government anti-Semitic.

The Weimar developments didn’t end well. And only a fool would fail to study what happened and learn from the facts.

The leverage that the Jews used in Weimar Republic, which lasted from the end of 1918 to the beginning of 1933, is the same leverage they are using now in the United States; and that is to apply the pressure during difficult economic and political times.

The international banking families who own the Fed are using money as the weapon to take over America’s infrastructure and from there apply the leverage globally.  They are in all groups – the theater, the professions, the media, the industries, the political parties, the Cabinet and the Congress, and the financial sector –and during those times when others are wanting to recoup their lives and families and their livelihoods and simply hang on to survival, as were the Germans after the devastation of WWI, these people are taking advantage of that situation.

In short, when you look the other way, they take it.

Peter Peel explained it in 1981 using in part the writings of Sir Arthur Bryant, “a respected historian and a conservative Christian gentleman, wholly out of sympathy with the Nazi regime which followed the Weimar period.” 

Says Peel in his book, Unfinished Victory, published just before the outbreak of World War II, Bryant “described in vivid and evocative language the alien quality of the ‘200,000 or more Jews’ who thronged Berlin.

“Many of them (he says) had poured into the country during the post-war upheaval. They did not stay poor long. Bryant points out that as late as November 1938, after five years of anti-Jewish legislation, Jews still owned about one-third of all real property in the Reich, most of it acquired during the disastrous inflation of 1923 with foreign funds obtained through their international connections.”

Writes Peel in the Preface to Alfred Rosenberg’s The Myth of the Twentieth Century (The Myth is described as the most ambitious attempt to represent a historical, racial philosophy of National Socialism published in 1930), “Bryant says that although the Jews comprised only one percent of the population, their control of the national wealth and power soon lost all relation to their numbers. In the 1924 Reichstag, a quarter of the Social Democrats were Jews. Jews controlled 57% of the metal trade, 22% of the grain, and 39% of the textile. More than 50% of the members of the Berlin Chamber of Commerce were Jews, as were 1,200 of the 1,474 members of the Stock Exchange. Of the 29 legitimate theaters in Berlin, 23 had Jewish directors. At one point, says Bryant (quoting an anti-Nazi book by E. Mowrer, Germany Puts the Clock Back), so complete was the Jewish monopoly of the Press that ‘a telephone connection between [sic] three Jews in Ministerial Offices could effect the suspension of any newspaper in the State.’

“Authorship, continues Bryant, was almost a Jewish monopoly. In 1931, of 144 film scripts worked, 119 were written by Jews and 77 produced by them. Medicine and law followed the same pattern; 42% of the Berlin doctors were Jews (1,932) and 48% of the lawyers. ‘Every year it became harder for a Gentile to gain or keep a foothold in any privileged occupation.’”

He continues: “Major Francis Yeats-Brown (European Jungle) adds a few figures to Bryant's, relative to the disproportionate power of Jews in the professions. He tells us that in Berlin 1,925 out of 3,450 lawyers were Jews and in Frankfort, 432 out of 659. Fifteen Jewish bankers held 718 directorships. In Vienna, 85% of the lawyers, 70% of the dentists, more than 50% of the physicians, were Jews. The boot and shoe industry was 80% Jewish, as were the newspapers; the banks, 75%; the wine trade, 73%; the cinema, 70%; lumber and paper, 70%; fur and furriers, 87%; bakeries and laundries, 60%.”

It should be noted that “Alfred Rosenberg (a Gentile) was born on the twelfth day of January, 1893 and was hanged at Nuremberg at 1:49 A.M. on the morning of 10 October 1946. He was the fourth man of the ten on whom Master-Sergeant John C. Woods performed his grisly task as hangman on that cold, black night.”

As for the trial: “It did not help that a headline in the British newspaper with the largest daily circulation – about 4,000,000—crowed ‘We Shall Try Them And Hang Them.”’

As to why Peel - who at the time of the Nuremberg trials was still a serving officer in the Royal Air Force of Great Britain and had spent some six years fighting the Germans and Japanese - wrote the preface to a book written by a defeated man of a defeated nation, see the link

And now the fight has come to America - the people versus the banks – as Lord Acton foresaw it would come. The buck stops here, in America. But when the people get to the end chapter as the banks use a fiat currency to establish a world government where, as Rosenberg said in The Myth, Finance with its golden meshes swallows states and peoples, economy becomes nomadic, life is uprooted,” the bankers are running into a little thing called freedom. Americans aren’t Germans; they will fight smarter because there will be no big bully to come in and thwart them. As for the bankers, there will be no place left to run.

Perhaps this will help counteract Bloomberg’s latest piece of ongoing war propaganda: "Nazi Goebbels’ Step-Grandchildren Are Hidden Billionaires," January 28, 2013

Not to forget the Jewish declaration of war on Germany in 1933.

And then there is the perpetual 6 Million figure, that has been documented in newspapers, magazines, and propaganda pamphlets, long before WWII.

My take on it is they rejected Jesus H. Christ and then became criminals. G-D chose them for his people, but they went B-A-D. That's why JC chased the Money Changers from the Temple. They were Red Shield Prototypes, and they had JC knocked off by the Romans.

Remember the crowds that chose  Barabbas over JC? "Let His blood be on our hands?"

And G-D said He would put a stumbling block in front of the Jew (rejection of JC).

We are all playing out history and prophecy, and, yes, "the Jews" did kill Christ, and "they" are blood suckers even today. Obviously, not all Jews are bad: the 12 Apostles were also Jews.

Chosen by G-D, they Rejected Him (as JC) and so went over to the Dark Side. Since G-D promised the Jews would return to a homeland, they are now back in what we call Israel, since G-D cannot break a promise He has made. That does not mean He approves of what they are doing at the present time. My study leads me to think G-D does not quite approve of Political Zionism.

I suspect Israel is going to be used to teach all of Mankind Who is Boss.

Do I "hate" Jews? Not at all. But they rejected the Cornerstone. Sorry, those of you who think all that Talmud-anti-Goy stuff is the Real Deal. It's been outlawed by JC, IMO.

Since the Money Changers now own the Government, that should point everyone in the direction of who the anti-christs and bad guys are. And, prophecy says one day, the biggest baddest Money Changer of all will appear and lead many be careful out there. Since it is feasible today to have a 1-world currency, the Money Changer may already walk among us, maybe not.

Just my opinion; like an aa meeting, everyone has one.

Beware the Banksters!

Well, that IS what we decieved christian's / westerners have all been fed for the past couple hundred years by decieved pastors. However

Yahshua/Jesus was not a 'Jew' as in Babylonian Talmudic jew.  He was a Judean and the same for his disciples with the exception of Judas, the betrayer.  Unfortunately the KJV used the misnomer 'jew' tather than Judean...thus Rev 2:9 and 3:9 when Christ told His church , to parapharse 'I know the trouble you have with those who call themselves Judeans, but they are not, they lie..." He said this cause they were actually Edomites and Canaanites who King John Hurcanus (150 BC) and encouraged to move into Judea in the absence of the Judeans that never returned from Babylonian captivity. So they came to live in Judea and usurped the identity.  Thus Yahshua told them "You are not of my sheep (my people) or you would believe me."  They didn't like His announcing who they really were as they had a good thing going on when Jesus showed up, runing the temple and misleading the real Judean/Israelites.   So they had to kill him! 

God has plans for the Esau (the Edomites) See Obadiah.

We've been told the other tribes of israel 'were lost', but history of the Caucasian people shows otherwise.

"‘We’ve been fighting a war for the past 18 months, which is the harbinger of World War III. The world is going to fight, whether they like it or not.  I’m sure,’ Ra’anan Gissin, a senior adviser to [Israeli Prime Minister Ariel] Sharon, said in an interview Friday." Stephanie Innes, Arizona Daily Star, March 18, 2003.


“I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it."
— Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon

"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves."

Everything your hear and read from the msm is 100% true. Everything is OK! Go shopping, do not waste your time reading or thinking. Please continue your shopping and go back to your jobs, if you do not have a job you are a worthless human being, you’re not divine beings, what you are is consumers.

Consume, consume and consume until we have no planet left. Do not smile or be happy, be scared, be miserable and continue to buy stuff you don’t need to support the economy. We need more Govt control in our lives, telling us what to do and what to think. You were born to shop and you will die to shop. Please remain as miserable as you can. The Panopticon is your friend.

Hands up who thinks this isn't being played because Britam files got hacked, and that line of U.N. action was compromised?


So far this week, we've had "multiple bodies found on the river bank in rebel held territories as river levels went down after floods" [warning: dead people]



1) If a body has been in an aquatic medium for enough time for rigor mortis to set in, why is blood flowing out of their head wounds

2) If a body has been in an aquatic medium for enough time for rigor mortis to set in, why is blood flowing out of their head wounds

3) If a body has been in an aquatic medium for enough time for rigor mortis to set in, why is blood flowing out of their head wounds


Oh, and this little tale of the brave Israeli air force air striking a weapons convoy (POSSIBLY CHEMICAL, YA KNOW, BRO!)



Rigor mortis (Latin: rigor "stiffness", mortis "of death") is one of the recognizable signs of death, caused by chemical changes in the muscles after death, causing the limbs of the corpse to become stiff and difficult to move or manipulate. In humans, it commences after about three to four hours, reaches maximum stiffness after 12 hours, and gradually dissipates until approximately 48 to 60 hours after death.


But, these multiple corpses, found in a rebel held zone, with obvious blood trails, were "just found" after a "flood" went down [note: concrete drainage =/= river with flood banks]. Sadly, the average person cannot tell the vast waves of bullshit surrounding this type of thing.



In any case, chalk up another 80 people to the grinder that is "Manifest Destiny".

No convoy....

The Syrian government, by admitting that the Israel Air Force attacked the Jamaraya “Military Research Institute” (a euphemism for an arms deport), near Damascus, broke the barrier of silence the Israeli government had clamped down on its initial involvement in the Syrian conflict.

Aurora Ex Machina's picture

Nice catch; Initial reports were of an air strike on a convoy.


Are you a doctor? I need an expert opinion on blood congealing that prevents free-flow out of corpses going through rigor mortis after being in a river. 4-8 hrs let's call it, to be generous.


Hint: snark levels at maximum. I very well know when blood congeals in a corpse that has no heart beat, and can model diffusion rates in water. For the permanent record: You can read it either way: either I'm outraged at blackOp level propaganda being shilled so hard and the support for such butchers being put on Assad, or I'm outraged at the blatant disregard for science and intellect being used to sell the line. Take your pick. Either way, pitiful and pathetic and tragic for 80+ humans.

I don't go much in for the big conspiracies, but it seems clear to me that plans to attack Iran, Syria, Libya and others go back to well before 9/11.

So I am somewhat more worried about the US {or Israeli} governments attacking the US and blaming it on Iran or Syria to get the war they want going.

I mean, it seems crazy, I know... but... this government has lied about so much and so many old neocon papers [like "A Clean Break", and others] and there was that guy a few months back, some think tank guy, who sort of half jokingly advocated a false flag...

I mean, Im not a conspiracy guy, but I wouldn't feel safe going to the superbowl with so many powerful people itching to start this next war.
