khaledYNet News: “Hamas political chief Khaled Mashal attacked Israel and the Palestinian Authority in a speech on Thursday evening, a day after his deputy, Ismail Haniyeh, gave a public address at a victory parade in Gaza.

Speaking at a news conference in Qatar, he said: “We know that Israel is strong and is aided by the international community. We will not restrict our dreams or make compromises to our demands.”

Mashal also leveled accusations of war crimes against Israel, “Israel committed another holocaust after Hitler’s Holocaust, destroying schools and hospitals.”

Opinion: Khaled Mashal is correct, the Bible is clear that there will be a final Arab campaign against Israel.

There are 7 nations/10 armies prophesied to be part of an invasion force in Psalm 83:1-8

  • Edom = Palestinians of the West Bank and Southern Jordan (Sunni)
  • Moab = Palestinians of Central Jordan (Sunni)
  • Ammon = Palestinians of Northern Jordan (Sunni)
  • Philistia = Palestinians of Gaza (Sunni)
  • Amalek = Southern Israel (Sunni)
  • Hagrites = Egypt (Sunni)
  • The children of Lot = Saudi Arabia (Sunni)
  • Assyria = Syria (Shia) + Northern Iraq (Kurds, mostly Sunni (not Arab-ethnically distinct)
  • The inhabitants of Tyre = Southern Lebanon (Shia)
  • Gebal = Northern Lebanon (Shia)

With the rise of ISIS, two distinct possibilities are in play:

1. There will be a coming together of Sunni and Shia to make a final assault against the Jewish state.

2. ISIS/al Qaeda/Al Nusra entities continue to infiltrate and imbed in Shia nations, making the attack all Sunni.

The Times Of Israel: “Exactly how bad are Israel-US relations today? Who the Hellfire knows. What is clear is that two weeks after the revelation that the US had added an additional level of scrutiny to resupplying the IDF with weapons, business was anything but usual regarding the military-to-military relationship upon which Israel relies.

Washington has, in fact, been extremely closed-lipped about the Hellfires.

Asked about the Hellfires almost two weeks ago, State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf said that “we generally don’t talk about specific deliveries after they’re requested and before they’re delivered, but I will say that things are being — things that have been requested from Israel are — we’re taking a little bit of additional care now given the situation, and if there were requests for such missiles, that would fall under that.”

Opinion: Israel is in a tense ceasefire in the south, while trying to stop Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front fighters and its Sinai arm (Ansar Beit Al-Madis) in the north, who just happen to be tied into Hamas in the south.

At last count, there are over 30 al Qaeda factions operating all around Israel.

The US, Jordan, and Israel are quietly backing the mixed bag of Syrian rebel factions which yesterday seized control of the Syrian side of the Quneitra crossing, the only transit point between Israeli and Syrian Golan.

With all that going on, the US is dithering, a common occurrence these past years, on sending Hellfire missiles.

It is no wonder that terror leaders are so arrogant.

GolanSyrianAir

Debkafile: “The US, Jordan and Israel are quietly backing the mixed bag of some 30 Syrian rebel factions which Tuesday, Aug. 26, seized control of the Syrian side of the Quneitra crossing, the only transit point between Israeli and Syrian Golan. However – here comes the rub – Al Qaeda elements have permeated all those factions.

The crossing is formally under the control of UNDOF, an international peacekeeping force, which too is falling apart as contingents are recalled by their governments.

Damascus hit back at the rebels Thursday, Aug. 28, by sending the Syrian air force to destroy the new rebel positions. This was a flagrant contravention of Israel-Syrian armistice agreements. The Israeli air force might have been justified in scrambling to combat the Syrian air incursion, but was not ordered to do so.

This appeared to contradict a fact which Israel has kept very dark: The 30 or so Syrian rebel offensive to wrest Quneitra would have stood no chance without Israel’s aid – not just in medical care for their injured, but also in limited supplies of arms, intelligence and food.

Israel acted as a member, along with the US and Jordan, of a support system for rebel groups fighting in southern Syria. Their efforts are coordinated through a war-room which the Pentagon established last year near Amman. The US, Jordanian and Israeli officers manning the facility determine in consultation which rebel factions are provided with reinforcements from the special training camps run for Syrian rebels in Jordan, and which will receive arms.

All three governments understand perfectly that, notwithstanding all their precautions, some of their military assistance is bound to percolate to Al Qaeda’s Syrian arm, Jabhat Al-Nusra, which is fighting in rebel ranks. Neither Washington or Jerusalem or Amman would be comfortable in admitting they are arming Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front in southern Syria.”

67 landsOpinion: We wrote on this yesterday. Al Nusra, weakened by the ISIS advance, is seeking control of the Golan Heights, a natural buffer which protects Israel from Syrian, al Qaeda and Hezbollah attacks.

In the Six Day war of 1967, Israel miraculously defeated Egypt, Jordan, and Syria taking back the God-given defense buffers of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, the Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights, and the Sinai Peninsula.

All five areas are critical to Israel’s survival demonstrated by the disastrous land for peace arrangements in Gaza. Progressive left governments have been critical of Israel for holding on to these lands.  These criticisms were strengthened by President Obama’s May 19, 2011 speech suggesting that Israel revert back to the ’67 borders cutting the tiny nation in half.

Following that speech, the push for a two-State solution, in violation of God’s law forbidding the dividing of the land (Joel 3:1-2), came front and center.

That the nations didn’t learn from the Gaza give-back of 2005, and the constant Hamas rocket attacks ever since, is evidence that Satan has blinded the world with anti-Semitism.
