Newsmax: “Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah pledged full support on Friday to the Palestinian group Hamas in its conflict with Israel despite a deep rift between the two militant organisations over the civil war in Syria.

“We in Hezbollah will be unstinting in all forms of support, assistance and aid that we are able to provide,” Nasrallah said.

“We feel we are true partners with this resistance, a partnership of jihad, brotherhood, hope, pain, sacrifice and fate, because their victory is all our victory, and their defeat is all our defeat,” he said.

Opinion: The two Islamic terror groups are natural enemies making this an interesting partnership for Bible prophecy students. Since Iran is the financier of both (Sunni) Hamas and (Shia) Hezbollah, the Psalm 83 alliance of both Islamic factions comes into focus.

In Psalm 83:7, the prophet lists Philistia (Gaza) governed by Hamas, and the inhabitants of Tyre (Lebanon) which is Hezbollah.

Breitbart: “Late Thursday evening Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, with the co-sponsorship of seven other House Representatives, released a bill to finally designate the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) as a Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO).

The Breitbart News Network has obtained a copy of the potentially historic document that links the MB to Al Qaeda and the global jihadi movement. Titled the ‘‘Muslim Brotherhood Terrorist Designation Act of 2014,’’  the proposed legislation provides extensive evidence proving why the organization, which has recently been designated a a terrorist group by both Egypt and Saudi Arabia, satisfies the federal requirements to be placed on the official FTO list.”

Opinion: You mean the president’s personally invited guests to the 2009 Cairo speech?

Stratrisks: “Militants from ISIS now control or threaten key facilities on the Euphrates and Tigris rivers, generating fears that the Al-Qaeda splinter group could turn off the taps to the Shiite south of Iraq, sparking a massive humanitarian crisis. Last month’s ISIS-led offensive across Iraq saw it overrun cities and battle for oil refineries as the national army melted away, but it has also been waging a war for water, trying to wrest control over rivers, dams and desalination plants in a bid to solidify its territorial gains.

Iraq’s 32 million people are entirely dependent on water flowing down from two great rivers in Turkey, the Euphrates and the Tigris. Where those waterways enter Iraq in the north, ISIS holds key dams and surrounding areas, leaving Shiite-majority southern Iraq vulnerable to the use of water as a strategic weapon.”

Opinion:  Bakr al Baghdadi robs banks, takes oil fields, and controls water supplies, sounding a bit like the Jesse James of the Middle East. Maybe our new friends, the Iranians, will bail us out before ol’ Bakr makes good on his promise to see us in New York.

ISIS gains highlight ‘aggressive’ use of water as weapon of war
