The Algemeiner: “Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday warned that the Islamic State is “facing our borders” in Egypt, as Israel’s southern neighbor was reeling from deadly terror attacks against its security personnel in the Sinai peninsula that killed at least 20 on Wednesday.
“Terrorism is knocking at our borders,” said Netanyahu, following a visit to Hadassah Ein-Kerem Hospital, where he met two men wounded in a drive-by terrorist shooting in the West Bank that killed one Israeli and wounded three others on Tuesday. Both victims were undergoing surgery at the Jerusalem hospital.
“ISIS is not just opposite the Golan Heights,” he said. Recent reports have indicated that militants with links to the Islamic State have taken control of territory just a few miles from Israel’s border with the Syrian Golan.
Opinion: Barbarians at the gates. I used the plural since ISIS now has a foothold north, south and west of Israel.
If ISIS were to take Jordan, it becomes conceivable that all or part of the Psalm 83 invasion force could be the same terror group.
Israel’s Prime Minister needs eyes in the back of his head.
