Readers familiar with this blogger’s commentaries/op-eds can attest to the following – the truth lands where it lands. In other words, if it means constantly upbraiding the anti-American Obama regime, then so be it. Similarly, if circumstances warrant, yours truly will take Israel’s leaders to the wood shed.
That being said, a review of the following is in order, simply to catch the readers up to the latest dangers lurking on Israel’s southern border, unbeknownst to most, yet in full view ( and covered up ) of our leadership.
DIRECTLY due to Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s support of Morsi’s Muslim Mafia – materially or otherwise – Israel’s southern front has become a mortal danger. It is NO accident, a 30 year period of quietude (paradoxically, proving the grave blunder of giving the Sinai to Egypt, under the insane ‘land for peace’ surrender paradigm…moving right along… ) has erupted into a clear and present danger.
Therefore, ‘More Hell Unleashed By The Islamist-in-Chief…’ is a good primer – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/09/04/more-hell-unleashed-by-the-islamist-in-chief-smack-on-israels-southern-border-addendum-to-coming-full-circle-the-planned-empowerment-of-the-muslim-brotherhoodmafia-commentary-by-adina-kut/, to start piecing the deadly puzzle together.

In furtherance of the reasons why Israel is in grave danger, ‘Israel’s Failure of Leadership…Its Lack of Statesman – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/06/30/israels-failure-of-leadership-its-lack-of-statesmen-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/, has exacerbated Israel’s perilous ship of state.
Coupled with ‘The Dangerous Morphing of Israel’s Leftist Media With A Leftist Washington Regime’ – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/26/the-dangerous-morphingtwinningsell-out-of-israels-leftist-media-with-a-lethal-leftist-washington-regime-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/, showcasing the out sized influence of a PC/leftist tainted media.
Yet by demonstrating, via ‘Countering The Heretofore Inexplicable…There Are Remedies’ – http://adinakutnicki.com/2012/06/26/countering-the-heretofore-inexplicable-there-are-remedies-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki-7-2/, one can be hopeful, realizing there are other approaches to end the (appeasement) madness.
Moving right along….
‘Egypt confronts Israel with 6,000 Sinai Islamists as an Approved militia’
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report September 3, 2012
“To keep the truce with the Islamist terrorist networks in Sinai in place, while avoiding a large-scale military operation to suppress them, Egypt is now releasing dozens of jailed Salafist gunmen in batches every few days, so feeding the Islamists a steady supply of reinforcements. Cairo is also in negotiation with Bedouin tribal elders to grant a body of 6,000 Al-Qaeda-linked Salafi gunmen the status of an approved, independent militia. Armed with up-to-date Egyptian weapons, this militia is to be charged with responsibility for maintaining security in the peninsula.
This may be a neat way out for Egypt and let the Morsi government off the hook of grappling with the violent Islamist networks infesting Sinai. But it leaves Israel squarely face to face with a whole new terrorist outfit which has the freedom to choose between operating in the service of Al Qaeda or Cairo – or playing both sides.
Israeli security circles on the southern front familiar with the Sinai security situation explain that the Egyptian army’s claim Monday, Sept. 3 that it pulled “another 20 tanks” out of the peninsula, marking the tail end of its putative counter-terror military offensive, was therefore the reverse of welcome news for Israel.
All the same, out of certain diplomatic considerations, Israelis officials are collaborating with the US and Egypt in drawing a veil over this dangerous downturn in security along its southwestern border.
Thursday, Aug. 30 Defense Minister Ehud Barak said: ”The Egyptians must combat terror and if they need to bring extra military strength into Sinai [for this purpose], we should let them.”
As he spoke, Egyptian spokesmen claimed the tanks, illegally deployed in breach of the peace treaty with Israel, were being withdrawn at the end of a “successful military offensive” to root out the terrorists.
This statement, say DEBKAfile’s counter-terror sources, contains at least two untruths: The tanks were falsely presented as backing a fictitious Egyptian operation, just as the Cairo communiqué pretended that large numbers of terrorists were killed and wounded “in action” or detained.
There were no terrorist casualties because the entire operation was made of whole cloth, a Sinai desert mirage.
That the Netanyahu government and defense chiefs went along with this fiction is the real issue.
They have committed Israel to accepting the entry of Egyptian military forces into Sinai for the stated purpose of combating terror – a stipulation the Cairo government under the Muslim Brotherhood has demonstrated it has no intention of upholding. Just the reverse: The Egyptian troops positioned in Sinai are ordered to keep their powder dry and stand by as the terrorist cells of the “Mujaheddin Brigades in the Jerusalem Vicinity” – which is closely allied to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula – goes from strength to strength.
Yet some Israeli media have suggested sympathetically that the Egyptian army was forced to slow down its counter-terror operations for lack of intelligence on the armed cells’ whereabouts.
An Israel officer serving in the sector retorted angrily that every Egyptian and Israeli officer serving anywhere in or near Sinai knows exactly where the gunmen are skulking and their training facilities located. “The trouble is that Egyptian officers who go past those places look the other way,” he said.
The only action the Morsi government has taken on the quiet is to place a security buffer strip along the Egyptian-Israeli border off-limits to civilian traffic.
Our military sources report this strip has been dubbed “The American Highway” of Sinai, because its 260 kilometers were paved in secret by US military engineers. It runs from the MFO peacekeepers’ Mediterranean base at Sheikh Zuweid in northern Sinai down to Taba, providing a safe route for the peacekeepers, most of them members of the US 82nd Airborne Division, between their northern base and their headquarters at Sharm el-Sheikh.
Large sections of the American Highway run parallel to Israel’s Route 12 from Nitzana to Eilat, Israel’s southernmost town.
Egypt no doubt intended this buffer strip to serve additionally for keeping terrorists at a distance from its border with Israel. But IDF observers in that area see very little Egyptian military activity for keeping it sterile and closed to hostile movements.
Once the Salafis are organized in a militia and formally recognized as such by Cairo, it will be that much harder to keep them from breaching the buffer strip abutting the Israeli border.”
It would be a heck of a lot simpler to ‘see no evil, hear no evil’, plodding along as a babe in the woods. However, this is surely not the case, and it is exactly why the contents of the latest news from Debka is hardly ‘news’ at all.
Yours truly saw it coming, from the moment Egypt’s Islamist Prez took the helm. It begs the question: will Israel’s leaders mirror the same failures, attributed to the leadership during the Yom Kippur War (in 1973), by acceding to diplomatic pressure, which plainly juxtaposes against the interests of the nation?
In other words, even though they surely see the dangers waiting to explode on the southern border, have they learned nothing? And, how many more times will Israel’s leaders bow to Washington’s dictates, without learning their requisite lessons? Even more so ( kal v’chomer ), under the current reign – of the Islamist-in-Chief – it is sheer lunacy to march in lockstep with Washington.
Most intrinsically, how many Jews will pay the ultimate price, due to the leadership’s madness?
UPDATE: it appears that the DEBKA report cited above has gone down the cyberspace memory/rabbit hole, but thankfully the link was captured before its take down! Therefore, the readers here are privy to its contents.
Curious and curiouser.
