Joel Rosenberg: The President of the United States has absolutely no idea what he is doing in the Middle East. Mr. Obama apparently has plenty of time to play golf. Yet he refuses to invest the time and energy necessary to come up with a plan to stop — much less defeat — ISIS, despite the genocidal attacks their forces are engaged in and the grave threat they pose to Israel and our Arab allies.

“We don’t have a strategy yet,” President Obama admitted during a White House press conference on Thursday.

Why in the world not?

Others have developed sound strategies. Here are a few:

Putin must be hysterical…

Arutz Sheva: “89% of Gazans support indiscriminate rocket fire against Israel civilians, according to a poll released on Wednesday.

The survey, conducted by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion (PCPO), also showed widespread support for UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, which has been fiercely criticized of turning a blind eye to Hamas incitement in its schools in the Gaza Strip, as well as the use of its school buildings to store rockets.

Asked about their opinion on the issue of “firing rockets at Israel”, 60.3% “strongly supported” such actions, while a further 28.6% supported it somewhat – for a total of 88.9%.

7.0% of respondents were undecided, with 1% “strongly opposing” and 1.4% opposing it somewhat.

1.7% answered “I don’t know”.

golanThe Jerusalem Post: “With the Nusra Front, al-Qaida’s Syria wing, now reportedly in control of the Quneitra crossing between Syria and Israel on the Golan Heights, Israel must be very clear about its red lines, former National Security Council head Ya’akov Amidror said Wednesday.

“As in the previous battles between the Assad regime and the rebels, we are not in position to determine the fight or the processes in Syria,” Amidror said in a conference call organized by The Israel Project.

But, he added, “We should be very clear about our red lines: no one will cross the border, and if someone will try, we will kill him.”

Likewise, he said, Jerusalem needs to make it clear that “if someone will use rockets or artillery toward Israel, our retaliation will be immediate, and it doesn’t matter if it will be the Syrian regular army or the rebels.”

Opinion: Now that there is a temporary calm in the south – there is trouble in the north. Al Nusra founded in 2012,  is a branch of al-Qaeda/Muslim Brotherhood operating in Syria and Lebanon.  Prior to the rise of ISIS, Al Nusra was known as the most aggressive and successful terror group in the area.

In recent months Al Nusra has been weakened by the ISIS advance into Syria, and appears to be turning their attention towards attacking Israel by taking control of the Golan Heights.

Having been under Israeli control since the 1967 war, the Golan would give Al Nusra a clear a rocket shot at Tel Aviv and control of the eastern shore of the Sea of Galilee – Israel’s main source of fresh water.

Don’t expect that to happen without Israel mounting a ferocious defense.
