The most urgent derivative of DEBKAfile’s update revolves less around who prevails in the Syrian power struggle, but in the fact that each side is replete with Islamist forces steeped in blood lust.
In as much as Israel is concerned, pay little attention to what Israeli leaders babble, but do pay heed to the following: either way this inter Arab/Muslim blood-fest shakes out Israel is in mortal danger, unless its covert forces (and they are considerable) secure said weapons.
And no one should be delusional enough to think that the Islamist/Muslim Brotherhood operatives, a preponderance of the ‘Free Syrian’ opposition, have any less incentive to spare Israel, than Assad’s butchers (operating at the behest of their Iranian masters).
The intrinsic/overriding question is: how quickly will the triumphant side use their chemical weapons against Israel, if not stopped?
In this regard, re-read the following and weave it all together, to intuit what the latest alert presages.
Once again, the coming encirclement of Syria is an Israeli/western nightmare –adinakutnicki.com/2012/11/25/the-coming-encirclement-of-syria-six-of-one-half-a-dozen-of-another-addendum-to-islamists-are-bloodthirsty-whatever-their-stripes-commentary-by-adina-kutnicki/ – regardless which Islamist group comes out on top.
Yet, the only hope is for Israeli/US special forces to secure the chemical arsenals – adinakutnicki.com/2012/08/25/war-alert-update-debkafile-intelligence-assesses-syrian-chemical-warfare-plans-addendum-to-update-us-foreign-forces-stand-at-ready-chemical-weapons-their-red-line-adina-kutnicki/ – despite the fact that the Islamist-in-Chief is handing over the entire Middle East to the Muslim Brotherhood Mafia and Al Qaeda offshoots. So, read the update below with all due deliberation.
‘Unusual activity at Syrian chemical weapons sites amid rumors Assad is dead or fled’
DEBKAfile Special Report December 2, 2012
“Western intelligence officers were seeing new signs of activity at Syrian chemical weapons sites, they told the New York Times Sunday, Dec. 2. “It’s in some ways similar to what they’ve done before,” a senior U.S. intelligence official said. “But they’re doing some things that suggest they intend to use the weapons. It’s not just moving stuff around. These are different kind of activities.”
DEBKAfile’s Middle East sources add rumors were flying around the region Saturday night and Sunday morning that President Bashar Assad had been killed or fled Syria. Neither is confirmed. However, the rebels have in recent days made major strategic gains and begun to turn the tide of war against’s Assad forces.
The new rumors tie in with the suggestive movements of chemical weapons detected by Western intelligence without any indication of their likely target.
Since the Syrian uprising erupted against his regime last year, Assad has often declared he would fight his enemies to the end and threatened that if his back was against the wall and life and regime were in jeopardy, he would rather set the entire Middle East on fire than surrender.”
