Israel’s Blinded PM & DM: “Attrition” Will (Eventually) Stop Arab Slaughter In Israel! Western Appeasement Gone Amok. Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

Burying another brave son of Israel who died to protect his people and his homeland.
Burying another brave son of Israel who died to protect his people and his homeland!

BEFORE we proceed, let’s be factually correct: The Jewish State of Israel is a tiny speck of land. To wit, its leaders have a razor thin margin of error in operational theaters, unlike their counterparts whose nations enjoy real strategic depth. This is just the way it is. 

NEVERTHELESS, like a drunken sailor and inveterate gambler, PM Netanyahu keeps rolling the dice and frittering away the odds. Guess what? He has no right to play with Jewish lives, as angst-ridden as he may be when the blood flows through the streets. 

WITH the above firmly implanted in mind, one must urgently ask: What can he do, if anything, to firmly halt the Arab/Muslim fifth column from their continuous Jewish slaughter throughout Israel? Briefly, a whole damn lot.

NOW, before delving any further, it won’t suffice to opine, as his apologists reflexively tsk, tsk in the nationalist/right-wing direction: “What he sees from there, you don’t see from here.” In other words, they treat us like fools, as if we don’t realize that PM Netanyahu (like all leaders) is privy to that which “regular” citizens can’t see. Duh, but that’s not the issue. Be that as it may, Israeli “knuckle-draggers” internalize that something is gravely amiss within the top tier. Yes, it is understood that the Prime Minister can’t give away state secrets, nor should he dare. Yet, it is hardly a secret that scores of Jews are dying under his watch, still, he refuses to give the mandatory order: Vanquish the enemy…forthwith…post- haste… kadima…קָדִימָה …yalla…يالا After all, everyone with a high school education (even those who aren’t considered high achievers, having failed their bagrut…בגרות…matriculation qualifiers) can see that said operational orders are nowhere in sight, even those executing the Jewish slaughter!

IN this regard, as repeatedly stated at this site and within global interviews, the strategic imperatives are multi-tiered. Atop the military component – in order for said “root canals” to bear fruitful dividends – the political leadership must execute HARSH punitive measures as adjuncts, those which will act as catalysts eliciting Pavlonian dog-like reactions. Use your imaginations…

INDUBITABLY, the IDF and attendant security services have solid plans – whatever they entail – to bring the daily slaughter to a SCREECHING halt. This is clear, at least to those whose eyes are wide open and refuse to blindly follow the narrative spun from the top. By extrapolation, this American-Israeli (living in the eye of the storm, like fellow Jewish Zionists) is well aware that the security forces are continuously blocked by PM Netanyahu from ending what, in all honesty, amounts to Russian Roulette being played with Jewish lives. Consequentially, this is where the crux lies, as well as the onus.

MOST resolutely, the following (Oct. 13, 2015) is an excerpt from “Israel On Fire: Arab Israelis (“Palestinians”) Wage Militant Jihad Against Jewish Zionists. What’s To Be Done?”, but keep in mind that it was written BEFORE this week’s revelations from DEBKAfile Intelligence cited below.

What are the core remedial measures which must IMMEDIATELY go into effect? Well, if Jewish blood isn’t to be deemed worthless within Israel – to the extent of punishing Jews who pray at Judaism’s holiest site, The Temple Mount, thus, banning them from renewing their gun permits – and if democracy has not become akin to a suicide pact, several prescriptive measures are patently clear:

  • Firstly, Israel’s top political echelon must remove its (mental) yoke, to wit: “How will Washington and the EU react to this and that (Jewish) life-saving measure?” Said twisted, ghetto-like thinking must be tossed into the trash heap, post-haste, for it permeates their strategic decision-making calculus, such that it is.
  • Secondly, aside from MK’s promising to enact bills that would finally ! enact very harsh punitive measures against so-called “youths” (and their families) who are caught in acts of terror, a burning nation can’t wait for the slow wheels of the legislative process to spin. Hence, each neighborhood which houses terror enclaves (the authorities know EXACTLY which ones they are, as does this investigative journalist) must be immediately sealed off. In tandem, stepped up measures should be held in abeyance to send a clear message: If you kill Jews, your lives will become unbearable. Whatever it takes. Besides, how can PM Netanyahu, a ‘serial accommodater’ – the buck stops with him – justify doing otherwise, with Jewish citizens being murdered and maimed at will? Would zoo keepers allow wild beasts to roam free without fencing??
  • Thirdly, immediate arrests of top Arab ringleaders must take place. This includes: the (northern-based) Islamic Movement’s leadership and Arab MK inciters. Additionally, the IDF must surround Abbas’s compound – he is a chief inciter – in the same deliberate manner in which Arafat’s Muqata was laid to siege in Sept. 2003. Now, didn’t that send a forceful message?…continue reading

SO, in a similar vein, is it at all coincidental that DEBKAfile Intelligence (Nov.23, 2015) assessed likewise, at least on an overall basis:

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon have been at loggerheads with Israel’s military and Shin Bet chiefs on how to grapple with the wave of Palestinian terror sweeping the country for more than two months, with knives, firebombs and vehicular attacks and rising Israeli casualties. The two ministers are convinced that the Palestinian terrorists will eventually succumb to attrition and throw in the sponge.
DEBKAfile’s counter-terror experts challenge this premise. The current wave is not only not dying down it is gaining traction. Its methods are such that purely military measures can’t get to grips with the persistent attacks, which are often just hours apart in different locations.
In the last 24 hours, the terrorists have spread their wings from Hebron, last week’s hotbed, to places further north. If they are not stopped, they may well move across the Green Line into the coastal districts around Tel Aviv and the northern Afula Plain and Jezreel Valley. At that point, the Fatah’s armed wing, the Tanzim, is more than likely to join the action with firearms, instituting a full-fledged armed uprising against the Jewish State.

To pre-empt this escalation and freeze the current wave of attacks, Israel’s military and intelligence chiefs have put forward a 7-point plan of action:

  • A general lockdown on Palestinian-populated areas of Judea, Samaria and Hebron for an indefinite period.
  • This lockdown would extend to the Palestinian districts of East Jerusalem.
  • Its borderline would run roughly along the defense barrier. Electronic tracking devices would be installed in the gaps with security personnel deployed according to need.
  • The roadblocks thrown up on the side roads leading to Palestinian villages and towns along the main highways, like Route 60 in the Gush Etzion and Hebron districts, have proved ineffective. The Palestinians find ways of circumventing them.
  • Blowing up the homes of Palestinian terrorist killers has proved disappointing as an effective deterrent to the spreading violence.
  • Military and intelligence experts are of the opinion that the desired effect of a de-escalation will only be achieved by an ultimatum: Give up terrorism or be cut off from Israel, so losing your jobs and your major sources of income.
  • Reservists will need to be mobilized on a large scale for this plan’s implememtation.

DEBKAfile’s political sources report that Netanyahu and Ya’alon are not in favor of the plan, each for reasons of his own, but are leaving it open for consideration.

Netanyahu fears that a total lockdown on Palestinian areas will have a negative effect politically at home and internationally. He is also concerned that a shutdown of the Palestinian districts of Jerusalem will expose him to the charge of dividing the capital.

Ya’alon is apprehensive that the Palestinians will deem the lockdown an Israeli declaration of all-out war. An armed conflict would then erupt between the two peoples with full force.
The authors of the plan are convinced that, one way or another, Palestinian terrorism, if not stopped short, will in any case escalate to the point where the prime minister and defense minister are left with no option but to execute the measures they have proposed.

MOST significantly, the strategic operational calculi (such that they are) from the PM & DM are seriously flawed. In the main, Netanyahu is terrified of losing favor with Euro and Washington decision makers, as well as with Israel’s irredeemably hostile domestic left. Incontestably, little short of committing national suicide will suffice any of them. Therefore, it was noted in the above Oct. 13, 2015 analysis: “Israel’s top political echelon must remove its (mental) yoke…how will Washington and the EU react to this and that (Jewish) life-saving measure?” Said twisted, ghetto-like thinking must be tossed into the trash heap, post-haste, for it permeates their strategic decision-making calculus, such that it is.

INHERENTLY, the Prime Minister refuses to fully internalize that nothing Israel does, or doesn’t, will quell their visceral hatred of Israel and Zionism. More specifically, after the horrific militant jihadi attacks in Paris, mendaciously, Sweden’s anti-semitic FM blamed Israel for the carnage, as did others, even if more “subtly”! Did you ever?? Thus, when will PM Netanyahu start to place Israel’s Jewish interests before anyone else’s, which is, in any case, his sworn mandate? Egregiously, does he believe that even if Israel receives brownie points (for less than the blink of an eye) from Europe and Washington it will quell the blood lust from Israel’s fifth column Arabs/Muslims? Or, heaven forbid, are they calculating that sacrificing an “acceptable” amount of Jewish lives is “necessary” to quiet down the international community? Feeling sick just contemplating said non-verbalized “trade-off.” 

AND if the above isn’t disturbing enough, what can one say about a Defense Minister whose job description requires defending the Jewish majority public, even at the expense of those who howl otherwise? To his utter shame, and to the majority Zionist public’s grave peril, he refuses to go all the way to victory. As such, even after rivers of Jewish blood – from one end of Israel to another – and with multiple attacks occurring simultaneously, his “reasoning” is such: “Ya’alon is apprehensive that the Palestinians will deem the lockdown an Israeli declaration of all-out war. An armed conflict would then erupt between the two peoples with full force.”

NOW, again, as an investigative journalist steeped in Islam, its relationship to militant jihad, and geo-politics, how is it possible that these eyes (with a cadre of counter terrorism contacts in agreement) internalize that Israel IS mired in a full-fledged war, and the only thing missing are the tanks rolling down the streets of Tel Aviv and elsewhere, even as they are seen on highways here and there?

SIMPLY put, have they both lost their minds? If so, shouldn’t they be forced to resign/retire post haste, before more Jewish blood flows?

CONSEQUENTIALLY, the main requirement for their replacements must be: Men (or women) who are NOT “tired of fighting…tired of winning”, and ready, willing, and able to achieve victory at ALL costs! Is said job description too much to expect from those elected to lead the Jewish nation?  Rhetorical.

BUT if they require some fire in their now timid (politically-driven) bellies, let them crank it up – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X8thyFfK1PY ….because resting on their past military glory days ain’t gonna cut it!!

Congressional Vote On Iran A (Impotent) Formality:WMD’s A “Done Deal”! Whys & Wherefores. Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

(NYers fighting Iran deal gather on Sept. 1good luck with that!)

AS someone who refuses to live in fantasy land, it became apparent, around 2012, that nothing would be done to stop Iran’s genocidal project. Effectively, matters become clearer for those who are well versed in geo-politics and Islamic related issues, assisting to navigate through what is always present: a smoke and mirrors show. Even so, a flicker of hope intermittently did seep in, but only to be quickly extinguished with reality-based thinking: PM Netanyahu will NEVER muster the necessary mental fortitude, in order to defy HUSSEIN Obama and go it alone. Rather, he would shamefully rely on his oratorical flourish. He is a master of this domain.

(March 3, 2015 speech before Congress)

MORE specifically, upon completely acknowledging that HUSSEIN Obama would not be deterred from gifting Iran hegemonic status over the Mid East (for starters), the fact that anyone in their right mind (no pun intended) would waste precious time, attempting to convince him otherwise, is wholly irrational. PM Netanyahu, what say you??

AND this is where holding PM Netanyahu’s feet to the fire enters the fray, as he unequivocally imperiled the Jewish nation. No ifs, ands or buts, despite his high rhetoric, so-called “red lines”, and his embarrassing tough guy scowl. 

Image result for pics of netanyahu scowling

RESULTANT, the urgent question became:

CAN ISRAEL SURVIVE AS THE JEWISH STATE? – AN INTERVIEW WITH ADINA KUTNICKI (March 2015)….the following excerpt is wholly germane:

jew-hate-in-europe-cover-665x385

The answers are varied and complex, but a few intrinsic factors are noteworthy. As detailed within our last interview (Sept. 2014), ISIS, Islam and Obama: Understanding The Threat To The Free world, PM Netanyahu is tethered (for a multiplicity of reasons) to Washington’s harness, even though he is at odds with the Obama administration regarding Iran. You don’t say…

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warns the United Nations General Assembly that Iran is close to build an atomic bomb.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warns the United Nations General Assembly that Iran is close to build an atomic bomb.

WOLFF BACHNER: And speaking of responsible world leaders, why isn’t the Prime Minster of Israel bringing up these serious issues with the nations involved in the peace process and especially with Obama and demanding an end to all military threats to Israel before Israel will negotiate again? Is he trying too hard to appease Obama and the various European talking heads, and by doing so, weakening Israel’s position even further in a peace process that is already an anti-Israeli charade?

ADINA KUTNICKI: It is this lock-step and debasing march which stopped him (during 9 years as PM, from 1996-1999 and 2009 -2015) from declaring victory over Hamas during the 2014 summer-long war, one which blanketed/blitzed the entire country with missile and rocket barrages. More indicting, instead of laying waste, years ago, to Iran’s mushrooming genocidal WMD program, he is still begging President Obama to lead the charge, knowing full well that he has no such intention. Chasing ghosts.

Inherently, he could have taken a page out of (the late) PM Menachem Begin’s playbook, when he defied President Carter and destroyed Iraq’s Osirak reactor. Now, as then, Washington issued threats to “cease and desist”, but one PM ignored said orders, while the other (continuously) caved. Statesmanship, or the lack thereof.

In the main, PM Netanyahu is best described as a “serial accommodator”, comparable to a badly battered wife who just can’t help herself from going back to her abuser, one last time, for more punishment. Now, others may tsk, tsk and opine: well, the POTUS is the big man in the arena, therefore, what can poor “Bibi” do but genuflect? Hogwash.

For the record, PM Menachem Begin didn’t have a problem executing what his mantle required of him; protecting Israel at ALL costs! Similarly, Israel’s first PM, David Ben-Gurion, gave Eisenhower the proverbial finger, when he launched a war in 1956 in concert with Britain and France against an increasingly belligerent Egypt. As always, Washington attempted to stay Israel’s hand. History repeats.

In furtherance to the above charge and indictment, whereas PM Ben-Gurion took on the U.S. when Israel was little more than a military pipsqueak, PM Netanyahu behaves as if Israel is a vassal state. This is the case even though he has at his disposal the most adept forces in the region, let alone technologically advanced. Hence, the question is not one of actual force strength, but one of inner and moral fortitude. Hmm…….

Conclusively, to round out the first part of my interview, let me leave the readers with the following concrete shout out: as to the charge sheet that PM Netanyahu is essentially spineless, I would like nothing more than to be proven wrong, as would millions of others. Intrinsically, he can redeem himself without any oratory flourishes, and this can be accomplished by veering into immediate “action-mode.”

In the starkest of terms, one of my close counter terror contacts, Tom Trento, demonstrated said efficacy via: “Bomb Iran” – The Musical. Don’t be fooled by the title, the players within are beyond reproach. Deadly serious. They are TOPS in their respective fields – intelligence and military.

MEMO to PM Netanyahu: way past time to stop talking and to give the order – bombs away! Don’t fall short by caving. Muster your courage. Otherwise, (Jewish) history will be very unforgiving….continue here….

IN fact, this site spent considerable time and resources to spread certain clarion calls (called in particular favors), in the hope of alerting others. This effort reflects in the following trails – with recaps on Aug 14, 2015 – albeit not exclusively so:

TRAIL ONE:

AS reported in Sept. 2013: the Islamist-in-Chief was jaw-jawing Iran to the WMD finish line. No doubt. Hence, its centrifuges spun (and continue to) on and on.

TRAIL TWO:

RESULTANT, was there any reason to believe that a nuclear armed Iran wouldn’t be a reasonable foregone conclusion?

TRAIL THREE:

THEREBY, it was asserted in Oct. 2013: Iran’s triumph has been ensured by the leader of the free world. Indeed.

TRAIL FOUR:

REGARDLESS, the question, as always, is: to what end? Well, America’s and Israel’s jugular are primary targets. Yes, they are. 

TRAIL FIVE:

IN other words, the jig is up, and in Nov. 2013 it was asserted as such. Okay.

TRAIL SIX:

AND if there were more than 24 hours in a day there would be time to re-document all the breadcrumbs housed within this site. Nevertheless, the following must be highlighted: it has always been claimed within these pages – to a 100% certainty – that Valerie Jarrett was HUSSEIN Obama’s point woman and consigliere, Iran’s deal maker.

NOW, as to Kerry, suffice to state that he was the final bagman. He was chosen for his “patrician” stature, yet, most importantly, his close ties to the mullahs on a familial and ideological basis. Plain and simple….continue reading

NEVERTHELESS, this America-Israeli – now living in the eye of the storm – would be gravely remiss not to look outward, to some who possess serious heft, in order to amplify said exponential dangers. 

President Obama recently dubbed anyone against the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) Iranian agreement “crazies” — how very presidential. Such name-calling is just evidence that one doesn’t want to debate the issue and would rather revert to Saul Alinsky’s tried-and-true tactic of demonization and ridicule — it ain’t working. This is a serious issue, but Iran’s laughing all the way to the bank — literally.

As reported by the Washington Post:

The ink was barely dry on a landmark agreement with Iran to limit its nuclear program before a German government plane packed with the nation’s economic elite touched down in Tehran

They were just the first in a rush of European ministers and businesspeople flocking to a market that is poised to reopen after years of grinding sanctions. Upscale Tehran hotels are packed and tables at trendy restaurants are scarce as foreigners jostle for bargains, even amid uncertainty over whether President Obama can overcome congressional opposition to the deal

The steady stream of visitors to Tehran is the latest sign of the Atlantic-wide divide between the United States and Europe, where there is scant opposition to the pact that aims to crimp Iran’s nuclear ambitions. Obama and Secretary of State John F. Kerry have warned detractors that they would be unable to reimpose a multinational trade embargo if Congress rejected the plans. The five other countries that helped broker the deal have also told Congress that they will not return to the negotiating table. The high-level trips show that U.S. leaders can’t even keep Europeans from booking tickets to Tehran ahead of the congressional vote, which needs to take place by Sept. 17. 

“We are talking here about 80 million people who need energy supplies, who naturally also need health care, who want to get back off their knees in the oil and gas businesses. There are opportunities and chances,” Joe Kaeser, chief executive of Siemens, a German industrial conglomerate, told German television last month.”

Ladies and gents, let’s be honest, this is over. Even if by some amazing grace there are enough votes to override President Obama’s veto, the floodgates are already open and folks are looking to establish new economic markets — free market supply and demand. And in the end, the Iranian regime will be able to say to their people, “we defeated the great Satan and now look how we’ve restored Iran’s prominence and influence.”

Interesting to note that it’s Germany rushing into Tehran to enable them to build their economy. In the 1930s, Chancellor Adolf Hitler spoke of restoring German pride after the embarrassment of World War I.

Indeed, Hitler did this, by increasing production and manufacturing; improving road networks; and rebuilding the German economy destroyed under the Weimar Republic. And once Hitler had restored a sense of superiority in the German people, he had them. And once he had the the German people’s blind loyalty, he then transitioned to the next phase: military strength.

This is exactly what the JCPOA has enabled. The first phase for Iran’s leaders is building the country’s economic strength. And when, by strategic design, the Ayatollahs have allowed enough economic improvement, the Iranian people will not remember their repressive nature. The Iranian people will become loyal followers — recall the massive rallies of 1930s Germany.

Then the Ayatollahs will shift to their hegemonic designs. For Hitler, it was the creation of the Thousand-Year-Reich; for Iran, it’s the global Islamic caliphate. And just as Mussolini and others followed, so shall other nations see Iran as the strongman who stood up to America and Israel. They will see Iran as a powerhouse where European nations come and seek to establish economic trade and procure oil and gas. And all the while Iran will be building the tools of war.

It will start with innocuous requests, responded to with appeasement and acquiescence. Then the requests will turn to demands. For Hitler, let us not forget, these included Rhineland, Sudetenland, Austria, Czechoslovakia, and then the blitzkrieg and Poland.

And just Hitler had an ally in Josef Stalin’s Russia, Iran has one in Vladimir Putin’s Russia. Then, it was Japan in the Pacific; now, it is China. And instead of fascist Italy, Iran has Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas — and with their power and economic prowess will come other Islamic jihadists.

And let us never forget it was the Jewish people who suffered horribly as a result. The world restored the Jewish homeland and swore, “never again.”

Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it, and it’s playing out today just like it did last century. The recalcitrant lovers of peace who attacked Winston Churchill exist in a different form today — but the tactics are the same. Churchill was castigated as an alarmist and warmonger, but he proved to be spot on!

Amazing, the world came together against apartheid and South Africa, but for some odd reason the number one state sponsor of Islamic terrorism — Iran — is cool.

Siemens sent a top official to Tehran with German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel last month. Their government plane touched down at Imam Khomeini International Airport five days after world powers agreed on the nuclear deal on July 14. 

“The agreement reached between the E3+3 and Iran in Vienna has laid the foundations for a normalization of economic relations with Iran,” Gabriel said, using another term for the group of six world powers that negotiated the deal. The vice-chancellor was accompanied by a delegation of top officials from some of Germany’s largest companies, including Daimler, Volkswagen and ThyssenKrupp. 

Since Gabriel’s visit, high-ranking ministers from France and Italy also have visited Tehran. British Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond plans to rush there Saturday to reopen his nation’s embassy, amid concerns that British business is falling behind its continental counterparts. Spain, Sweden and Poland plan to follow in the fall. Most of the lawmakers have brought top business leaders with them. 

Next month, Austrian President Heinz Fischer plans to be the first European head of state to visit Tehran since 2004. Vienna also hosted a major E.U.-Iran trade conference just a week after the deal was signed. 

“A lot of companies at the moment are preparing agreements to be signed the moment sanctions are lifted,” said Michael Tockuss, the head of the German-Iranian Chamber of Commerce. He said his association is organizing a trip every week for companies interested in doing deals in Iran. Requests for advice have tripled since the accord was announced.”

What’s at stake with the September vote in Congress on the JCPOA? Yes, it’s an historic event, launching us on the path to a replay of one of the darkest periods of history, World War II. The indicators and warnings are strikingly — and scarily — parallel. Who will history deem the “crazies” when all is said and done? Sadly, it will be Obama and his herd of followers.

FOLKS reading these words (as well as those who aren’t, but may someday) who survive the oncoming onslaught, whether living in Israel or not, will ask themselves: How could we not have seen this coming? What, if anything, could we have done? Yes, don’t think that the U.S. isn’t in their TOP cross hairs…Israel is but a tiny pit stop for the Mahdi-driven mullahs.

A woman passes a poster of the Khomeini and revolutionary guards, Iran.

MOST significantly, if history is any guide, let’s be honest: countless stood callously aside in the run-up to the Holocaust. Some believed it had nothing to do with them, that it was “just” a Jewish problem. Others, Jews and non-Jews, thought it was better to stay quiet and not “incite” the Nazis to a larger onslaught! Truth dare be told, too many couldn’t wait to be rid of the “Jewish problem”, and nothing has changed. Hence, the dark resurgence of classical anti-semitism, even from “polite” society.

  • AGAIN, those who refuse to see the historical parallels will rue the day. And not because this investigative journalist says so, but because of what the mullahs have in store. It will render the Holocaust little more than a small footnote.

BESIDES, future generations will be much less forgiving, than anything that can be found at these pages. Count on it.

TRENCHANTLY, this site queries fellow Americans: Did you vote for the most dangerous POTUS in American history? If so, you bear a certain onus, whether Jewish or not. (BTW, this has no bearing on party politics. Not at all.) Did you stay silent, even while there was still time to exert certain pressure points, to only awaken in time to go to a rally here and there when it no longer became tenable to sit on the sidelines? Did you contact Congress when force multipliers could have made their votes relevant, before deals were done and the issue was a fait accompli? And so on….

AS always, G-D will be the judge, whether one believes in Hashem, or the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

HISTORY alike.

Syria’s Collapse & Netanyahu’s GRAVE Miscalculation: Hitched Israel To Obama’s “Rebel” Bandwagon! Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

(UPDATED intel can be found below….)

AS joined-at-the-hip as Syria’s Assad is with his benefactor, Iran’s Hiterlite regime, the fact remains that in relationship to Israel – vis-a-vis the shared northern border – he was all bark and no bite. In other words, every so often he would saber rattle about “taking back the Golan”, yet, he knew better than to start a shooting war. Regardless, whatever else he did at the behest of Iran was not lost on Israeli intelligence, and they clearly dealt with its ramifications for over 40 years. Quiet ensued.

BUT somewhere along the line a GRAVE miscalculation was made by PM Netanyahu, when he decided to aid and abet HUSSEIN Obama’s “rebels” – al-Nusra/al-Qaeda offshoots who are thoroughly aligned with ISIS – as a bulwark against Hezbollah! Wait and see…

TO build the above case, specifically May 22, 2013, this investigative journalist gave a major interview for the record: “The Inquisitr Interviews Adina Kutnicki: The Reality Of Life For An Israeli Patriot”. Within it many issues were examined, but as to Syria the following was noted:

Wolff Bachner: How dangerous is life in Israel and how serious is the threat to Israel’s survival from her Arab Neighbors?

Adina Kutnicki: This is a loaded question, simply because on a daily basis life in Israel is just as normal (and routine) as in any other democratic nation, although the constant presence of IDF soldiers throughout its cities (and thankfully so), in tandem with the inspection of ones bags/cars at various venues, is not exactly “normal”. But the U.S. will surely have to adopt some of these measures, particularly in the aftermath of Boston’s urban jihad.

Be that as it may, there is no other democracy as imperiled as Israel, simply by dint of the fact that many world actors (in unison with civil society elitists) continually call for its elimination, albeit some are more circumspect than others. As a matter of record, aside from incessant exhortations from the Iranian Hilter – as he calls for Israel’s total obliteration and he means every word of it – as well as non-stop terror attacks from the PA/Fatah/Hamas junta (Israel’s erstwhile “peace” partners), the fact of the matter is that the region is fully primed for a MEGA explosion, even in juxtaposition to its usual upheavals.

Alas, the current chaos can be traced directly back to Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s indecorous unseating of Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s strong arm dictator for decades. While hardly a democrat, he understood very well which actors would become unleashed, if the status quo was tampered with. As a result, the much ballyhooed “Arab Spring” turned into an Arab Nightmare, untethering jihadist forces in warp speed. So if blame is to be assigned to the current catastrophe – and it is one – it must start at the Commander-in-Chief’s door, as he shrilly dictated to Mubarak – GO NOW!

Concomitantly, as this is being written, Israel’s northern front with Syria, as well as its border with Lebanon, is a tinderbox. Hezbollah’s terror brigades, in concert with Iranian militia forces, are poised to strike at Israel’s Golan. And with Israel barely the size of some counties in the U.S., let alone relative to its states, the notion that “only” one part of Israel is in the cross hairs is patently and dangerously misguided. Absurd too. Extrapolating therein, it is essential to understand the following: the Golan has been quiet for over forty years, but this is no longer the case. Most significantly, now that Al-Qaeda has entered the fray via Libya’s Benghazigate, the fear which deterred Assad from starting another war with Israel is no longer a factor. Desperate to save his regime, he has openly welcomed Russian and Iranian proxies to fight on his behalf. This has tipped the “balance of regional terror”, and its effects will soon play out on Israel’s borders. The readers should internalize, in the middle of all this chaos the Iranian centrifuges keep spinning, as such, the ensuing conflagration suits them well…continue reading here

THAT being said, fast forward two years onward, ISIS is gobbling up Syria and Iraq, and is poised to lay waste to the region and beyond. But one has to honestly lay the facts on the table and see where they lead. Land.

AS repeatedly assessed at this site, most recently, on May 26, 2015: the “ISIS-Monster (Iran Alike) Is Fed By HUSSEIN Obama: Knock-On Effects Of Illegal Libya War & More.” The leader of the free world (through incendiary actions and derelict inaction) has brought the Mid East to the brink. Guaranteed, its eventual blow back will reverberate in the U.S. – sooner than later. Yes, related proofs are conclusive and manifestcontinue here

IN this regard, it also has been proven that PM Netanyahu is incapable of extricating himself from HUSSEIN Obama’s demands, even though it appears otherwise. Evidence abounds within another interview from March 17, 2015, and its basis is manifestly clear: “ISIS, Islam and Obama: Understanding The Threat To The Free World.”

TO wit, the above leads us to the latest news:

Just a week after losing the big Palmyra air base to the Islamic State – and with it large stocks of ammo and military equipment – Syrian military and air units Wednesday, May 27, began pulling out of the big air base at Deir ez-Zour. This was Bashar Assad’s last military stronghold in eastern Syria and the last air facility for enabling fighter-bombers to strike ISIS forces in northeastern Syria and the western Iraqi province of Anbar.

His surrender of the Deir ez-Zour base is evidence that the Syrian president has run out of fighting strength for defending both his front lines and his air bases. He is also too tied down to be able to transfer reinforcements from front to front. He is therefore pulling in the remnants of his army from across the country for the defense of the capital, Damascus.

DEBKAfile’s military sources report that the Islamic State now has in its sights the Syrian army’s biggest air facility, T4 Airbase, which is located on the fast highway linking Homs with Damascus 140 km away.

It is home base for the bulk of the air force’s fighters and bombers. In its hangars are an estimated 32 MiG-25 fighters, as well as smaller numbers of MiG-25PDS interceptors, designed for combat with the Israeli air force, MiG-25RBT bombers-cum-surveillance planes; MiG-25PU trainers, which are routinely used to strike rebel forces in crowded built-up areas, and advanced MiG-29SM fighter jets.
Stationed there too are 20 advanced Su-24M2 bombers, the strategic backbone of the Syrian air force.

T4 Airbase also holds the largest Syrian stocks of guided bombs, air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles.

In the last few hours, air crews have been frantically removing these warplanes from T4 and distributing them among smaller bases in central Syria, at the cost of their operational effectiveness.

In the space of a week, therefore, Bashar Assad has lost three of his major air bases, including Palmyra, where Iranian and Russian air freights had been landing regularly with fresh supplies of ordnance and spare parts for his army.

Our military experts say that this bonanza frees ISIS to cut off the eastern, northern and central regions from the capital, and deprive the Syrian and Hizballah units battling for control of the Qalamoun Mts of air support against rebel and Islamist forces.

If they manage to take T4 as well, the Islamists will be able to prevent US jets from taking off for strikes against them in Syria, or bombing the their forces which have seized long stretches of the fast highway from Homs to Damascus.

ISIS around Israel

NOW, back to PM Netanyahu’s onus, and the warning blared from these pages in Dec. 2014, as confirmed by inside sources: 

ALONG this dangerous terrain, certain matters have come to this investigative journalist’s attention, being an American-Israeli living in Israel. Significantly (and attributed to a Golani Druze journalist, who shall remain nameless), he interviewed Syrian Druze and they credibly documented ISIS, for quite some time, inside their border, one which is adjacent to Israel’s Golan!

THE urgent query becomes: could it be remotely possible, in any rational reality – with Israel’s second to none “eyes in the sky” and other operational capabilities – that they haven’t seen the “rebels” merging with ISIS, long before this week’s “announcement”? Whom are they kidding?

IN this regard, there is a growing sense of outrage within the Druze community, as they realize that Israel’s leadership “lent” the IDF to quarterback for Obama’s “rebels”, those whom have proven to be (many months ago) ISIS affiliated.

IT gets worse.

ONCE again, a source has confirmed an unfathomable situation: Israel’s gov’t is clearly taking care of the medical needs of Obama’s “rebels”.

REPORTEDLY (another contact would have to go into hiding, if his identity was revealed), Israeli hospitals are at their disposal! Therefore, it is up to others to document the story’s underlying basis.

IN April 2014, over 10 Islamists (identified as either ISIS or Al-Nusra…six of one, half a dozen of another) were being treated in a Tsfat hospital for almost an entire month. To wit, they were separated from the rest of the patients, they were forbidden to walk around the hospital, and they were always guarded by IDF soldiers. By the way, it doesn’t matter a wit how this source was able to identify their presence. That’s neither here nor there…continue here

MIND you, the aforementioned source witnessed the above with his own eyes, even though open source got wind of it in the aftermath.

CONCLUSIVELY, a Feb. 2015 commentary “foreshadowed” ISIS’s catapult and its blow back to Israel alike. So, isn’t it now clear why (and how) a May 2015 analysis pinpointed the out-sized dangers via “Islamic Mega Alert: ISIS Marches On Jordan, Israel In The Cross Hairs?”

BESIDES, what kind of rational leadership believes that Sunni jihadists are the “preferred” terror address to push back against Iran’s proxy pawn in Syria? Not only that, but since 40 plus years of quiet was already in the bag, why jeopardize all that to prop up Sunni terrorists, in the vain expectation that they would be the “better” option to replace Assad?

RESULTANT, indictment rendered against HUSSEIN Obama and his purposeful Mid East fires, in tandem with Israel’s joined-at-the-hip leadership.

VISE-like. Full circle. Indeed, the well-worn adage, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is about to blow back with a cruel vengeance!

UPDATE: ISIS arrives in Gaza: Supporters of the “Islamic State of Jerusalem” sighted on Israeli border!

Can Israel Survive As The Jewish State? – An Interview With Adina Kutnicki (INQUISITR.com)

( Originally published at INQUISITR.com )

Today is a day of decision in Israel. The citizens of the Jewish state will either re-elect Prime Minister Netanyahu, who despite his faults, refuses to bow to Obama’s demands and will not give the Palestinians half of Jerusalem or they will replace him with Issac Herzog, a Leftist politician who is willing to divide Jerusalem and surrender more of Israel’s precious land. Herzog’s vision of peace with the Palestinians will confine Israel to indefensible borders and turn Jerusalem into a battlefield.

To discuss the Zionist perspective on the future of the Jewish state, the Inquisitr welcomes back Adina Kutnicki for another no-holds-barred interview, Adina is an investigative journalist, Political Commentator and security expert who has never hesitated to speak out on behalf Israel and the Jewish people. She is committed to maintaining the Jewish character of the world’s only homeland for the Jewish people with an undivided Capital in Jerusalem.

 

INTRODUCTION TO PART ONE OF THE INQUISITR’S INTERVIEW WITH ADINA KUTNICKI

Young Arab throwing rocks at Israelis. Far from harmless, quite a few Israelis have been killed by rock throwers.

Israel is now surrounded by well-armed bitter enemies, none of whom are calling for a Palestinian state to exist side-by-side in peace with the Jewish state of Israel. Instead, they have all called for the destruction of Israel and the creation of an Islamic Palestinian state from the river to the sea. These enemies include Hamas in Gaza, Syria and Lebanon in the North and the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria.

In the north, Syrian troops, Hezbollah and ISIS have set up positions in the Golan Heights near the Israeli border. Lebanon, ruled by Hezbollah, has literally thousands of Iranian-supplied rockets aimed at Israel’s civilian population centers, which they will launch any time Iran gives them a green light. Hamas in Gaza is bragging that they are rearming and digging new tunnels, and they have openly declared they intend to wage a war of extermination against every Jew on earth. The Palestinian Authority says whatever they have to in English to keep the foreign aid flowing, but in Arabic, they too talk about eliminating Israel, and there are several heavily armed terror group in Judea and Samaria that are all affiliated with the Palestinian Authority.

Making matters even more complicated, the leaders of the BDS movement have said they will not stop calling for sanctions on Israel when Palestine becomes a nation. They are demanding the full right of return for all 5.5 million so-called Palestinian refugees as a condition of ending the demand for sanctions on Israel. This flood of Arab Muslims would be a death blow to the existence of a Jewish state.

At the moment, Egypt and Jordan are dealing with their own terror groups who are making life very difficult for al Sisi in Egypt and King Abdullah in Jordan. However, should the rest of Israel’s neighbors and their assorted state-approved terror groups launch a coordinated attack on Israel, there is a strong possibility Egypt and Jordan would attack Israel as well.

WOLFF BACHNER: Adina, considering the dangers facing Israel, plus the threat of ISIS in Iraq, Libya and Syria, how can any sane world leader expect Israel to surrender more land, divide Jerusalem, and create a 23rd Arab state at this time?

ADINA KUTNICKI: Wolff, thank you for inviting me back to discuss some of the most pressing issues facing Israel, since its modern rebirth in 1948.

In point of fact, her enemies (near and far) continuously “forget” that Israel has been the nation state of the Jewish people for upwards of 4,000 years, and this convenient amnesia is not for nothing. Instead, they mendaciously claim that the state of Israel is recompense for the six million souls slaughtered during the Holocaust! Have mercy.

Now, a preponderance of Israel’s detractors will grudgingly concur that Jews are, for the most part, an intelligent people, albeit, some more so than others. Therefore, logic dictates that an intellectually endowed group would hardly settle for a sliver of land, one which is barely the size of New Jersey, never mind its total lack of strategic depth. Alternatively, the flip side becomes: were they collectively dropped on their heads to agree to “settle” in, of all places, the fiery Mid East? By extrapolation, those who are up in arms (due to the “stubborn” claim of Jewish ownership/title to Israel) shouldn’t they be curious, querying: to begin with, why are Jews insisting on living within this postage stamp sized land mass? Not only that, but since Israel (up until its recent gas find) is barren of natural resources (relying on its tremendous Jewish intellectual capital for its stunning success) — – again, why would Jews (myself included, living in Israel close to 7 years) want to reside in the midst of the barbaric Middle East?

Furthermore, have any of Israel’s vitriolic critics bothered to examine: where does the word Jew derive from? Well, the fact of the matter is Jews are called Jews due to the tribe of Judah. Consequentially, the region of Judea (originated from Judah) is the mountainous southern part of the historic land of Israel; the Jewish inheritance. Incontrovertibly, irrespective of all else, the heartland of the Jewish people is Judea and Samaria. This is the truth within every realm which is based upon a factual standard; historically, biblically or legally. Case closed.

Egregiously, this is the same territory which is purposefully bastardized as the “West Bank”, all in order to rip the heart out of the Jewish people’s historical, biblical and legal title to Israel. The same ahistorical claim is laid to Jerusalem, Israel’s eternal capital, Zion.

Yet, before we proceed with your highly charged questions, it must also be internalized that the same dark forces encircling Israel are targeting America. Indeed, the entire west is in the cross-hairs of Sunni and Shia Islamic jihadists, most especially the “Big Satan” and the “Little Satan”.

Resultant, within any rational discourse, the hegemonic ambitions of Arabs/Muslims should, on its face, obliterate all demands for Israel to forfeit even a centimeter of Jewish land. Besides, the bullet proof Jewish title to the entire land of Israel (intrinsically, Judea and Samaria and Jerusalem) is more than enough ammunition to shoot down the braying jackals. For the record, some readers may recall a tangential discussion in our first interview (Oct. 2013), The Reality Of Life For An Israeli Patriot.

This ISIS commander, surrounded by his hand-picked fighters, was known for his brutality. He was killed in a US airstrike.

WOLFF BACHNER: Now that the world is witnessing first hand the homicidal explosion of violence and Jihad in the Middle East, and the massive increase in the threats to annihilate the Jewish state, shouldn’t responsible world leaders call for a halt in the peace process until ISIS is defeated, Hamas is disarmed, Iran stops arming Israel enemies to the teeth, and the thousands of advanced Iranian missiles aimed at Israel’s cities are destroyed?

ADINA KUTNICKI: Assuredly, this has not stopped so-called sane world leaders from obsessively clamoring for Israel to relinquish its historical heartland, all for the sake of the “peace process”. Mind you, the only “peace” which has evolved since the “process” began has been thousands of pieces of (mostly Jewish) body parts blown to smithereens, and countless others maimed for life. And never mind those who are severely traumatized, plagued with PTSD and associated distress disorders, due to their obdurate quest for “peace.”

Atop said proven disastrous outcomes, and in light of the nation’s encirclement by Hamas in Gaza, Syria and Lebanon in the North and the Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria, and with Syrian troops, Hezbollah and ISIS positioning in the Golan Heights near the Israeli border, it is mind boggling to conceive that any non-malignant world leader (including some of Israel’s too) would push her to give up even a centimeter from the tiny ancestral homeland. As always, the salient question becomes: why?

Basically, western leaders are playing a numbers game, and the Arabs/Muslims win hands down. Placating them, despite their barbarism, manifests in two directions. Firstly, there are more financial deals to be made with a billion plus people, as opposed to a paltry few million. This is despite the fact that western collusion with the Arab/Muslim world has a direct hand in what they excel at best; the import/export of jihad through money laundering via narco-terror and various criminal enterprises. The main umbrella under which they operate is the Muslim Brotherhood; a Mafia-like syndicate of jihadi enterprises, which, at times, traverses with Hezbollah’s narco-terror networks F/B/O Iran.

The above is accomplished through a maze-like hydra of financial institutions throughout the west, as the dirty money wends its way into all corners of the world, wherever funds for jihad are required. Yes, “it be” true, there are many western leaders (political and others) who are accomplices, and HSBC is one such “slush” house.

Secondly, it is not inconsequential that the side most willing to use barbaric methods is the one which demands (and receives) appeasement. In other words, even though experience has proven that feeding the poisonous snakes will not keep the dangers at bay, still, the course of least resistance has its appeal to a mostly opportunistic, craven, highly intimidated western leadership. Couple the above with some who are rooting for Islam’s triumph, consequently, the waters become red and overflowing with innocent blood.

Still, in a highly Orwellian manner, Israel is accused of being the “bully” in the Mid East neighborhood, by dint of the fact that it has the strongest military force. Even so, if this scurrilous appendage was remotely correct, the discussion herein would be moot. DOA. How so?

Assuredly, Israel has the military capability to crush its menacing neighbors, and from several diverging force multipliers. On the other hand, time and again, Israel’s political leaders (unduly influenced by the nation’s leftist-driven media and non-elected, but very powerful, self-appointed elitists, be they from the academic, legal or cultural realm) have shied away from victory. Why?

The answers are varied and complex, but a few intrinsic factors are noteworthy. As detailed within our last interview (Sept. 2014), ISIS, Islam and Obama: Understanding The Threat To The Free world, PM Netanyahu is tethered (for a multiplicity of reasons) to Washington’s harness, even though he is at odds with the Obama administration regarding Iran. You don’t say…

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warns the United Nations General Assembly that Iran is close to build an atomic bomb.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warns the United Nations General Assembly that Iran is close to build an atomic bomb.

WOLFF BACHNER: And speaking of responsible world leaders, why isn’t the Prime Minster of Israel bringing up these serious issues with the nations involved in the peace process and especially with Obama and demanding an end to all military threats to Israel before Israel will negotiate again? Is he trying too hard to appease Obama and the various European talking heads, and by doing so, weakening Israel’s position even further in a peace process that is already an anti-Israeli charade?

ADINA KUTNICKI: It is this lock-step and debasing march which stopped him (during 9 years as PM, from 1996-1999 and 2009 -2015) from declaring victory over Hamas during the 2014 summer-long war, one which blanketed/blitzed the entire country with missile and rocket barrages. More indicting, instead of laying waste, years ago, to Iran’s mushrooming genocidal WMD program, he is still begging President Obama to lead the charge, knowing full well that he has no such intention. Chasing ghosts.

Inherently, he could have taken a page out of (the late) PM Menachem Begin’s playbook, when he defied President Carter and destroyed Iraq’s Osirak reactor. Now, as then, Washington issued threats to “cease and desist”, but one PM ignored said orders, while the other (continuously) caved. Statesmanship, or the lack thereof.

In the main, PM Netanyahu is best described as a “serial accommodator”, comparable to a badly battered wife who just can’t help herself from going back to her abuser, one last time, for more punishment. Now, others may tsk, tsk and opine: well, the POTUS is the big man in the arena, therefore, what can poor “Bibi” do but genuflect? Hogwash.

For the record, PM Menachem Begin didn’t have a problem executing what his mantle required of him; protecting Israel at ALL costs! Similarly, Israel’s first PM, David Ben-Gurion, gave Eisenhower the proverbial finger, when he launched a war in 1956 in concert with Britain and France against an increasingly belligerent Egypt. As always, Washington attempted to stay Israel’s hand. History repeats.

In furtherance to the above charge and indictment, whereas PM Ben-Gurion took on the U.S. when Israel was little more than a military pipsqueak, PM Netanyahu behaves as if Israel is a vassal state. This is the case even though he has at his disposal the most adept forces in the region, let alone technologically advanced. Hence, the question is not one of actual force strength, but one of inner and moral fortitude. Hmm.

At its base, the moment that PM Netanyahu conceded to a PA (terror) state (during his speech at Bar Ilan University in 2009, two and a half months into his tenure…regardless of how he framed it), the fact of the matter is that he gave Israel’s “kosher” stamp of approval to carve a 23 rd Arab state out of the Jewish heartland. This historical injury lands at his doorstep. Agreed, previous PM’s have been equally appeasing and beyond injurious, but the imprimatur for the above became cemented under his watch. No doubt.

Thus, he weakened Israel’s position within (already hostile, pro Arab) international forums, once he gutted the nation’s core standing. Realistically, are others supposed to be “more Catholic than the Pope”, so to speak? Not only that, why should they disagree with Israel’s PM, in effect, after he already conceded (his “reasoning” doesn’t count for a damn) to the “rights” of the so-called Palestinians? Unforgivable.

Most significantly, the “peace process” was irrefutably designed to weaken Israel on numerous fronts, rendering her a walking corpse. This is hardly a secret.

” As early as August 1968, Arafat defined the PLO’s strategic objective as “the transfer of all resistance bases” into the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, occupied by Israel during the June 1967 war, “so that the resistance may be gradually transformed into a popular armed revolution.” This, he reasoned, would allow the PLO to undermine Israel’s way of life by “preventing immigration and encouraging emigration … destroying tourism … weakening the Israeli economy and diverting the greater part of it to security requirements … [and] creating and maintaining an atmosphere of strain and anxiety that will force the Zionists to realize that it is impossible for them to live in Israel.”

The Oslo accords enabled the PLO to achieve in one fell swoop what it had failed to attain through many years of violence and terrorism. Here was Israel, just over a decade after destroying the PLO’s military infrastructure in Lebanon, asking the Palestinian organization, at one of the lowest ebbs in its history, to establish a real political and military presence—not in a neighboring Arab country but right on its doorstep. Israel even was prepared to arm thousands of (hopefully reformed) terrorists who would be incorporated into newly established police and security forces charged with asserting the PLO’s authority throughout the territories”…..

Unarguably, PM Netanyahu is the best orator on the world stage. He proved it on several occasions, most recently, at his speech to Congress on March 3, 2015. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, he is a highly gifted and polished communicator. But his commanding presence is both a byproduct of having been a special forces commando in Israel’s elite Sayeret Matkal Unit (General Reconnaissance Staff), coupled with the natural confidence gleaned from being a top graduate of MIT, one of the most acclaimed universities in the world. Not too shabby, brawn and brains alike.

To wit, it is not unreasonable to posit (and to expect) that a man of his inestimable gifts should utilize them (unlike at the aforementioned Bar Ilan speech) to highlight ALL the reasons why a PA (terror) state is a non-starter, regardless of any cockamamie caveats of “demilitarization”, in and of itself an illegal demand! For heaven’s sake…

Conclusively, to round out the first part of my interview, let me leave the readers with the following concrete shout out: as to the charge sheet that PM Netanyahu is essentially spineless, I would like nothing more than to be proven wrong, as would millions of others. Intrinsically, he can redeem himself without any oratory flourishes, and this can be accomplished by veering into immediate “action-mode.”

  • In the starkest of terms, one of my close counter terror contacts, Tom Trento, demonstrated said efficacy via: “Bomb Iran” – The Musical. Don’t be fooled by the title, the players within are beyond reproach. Deadly serious. They are TOPS in their respective fields – intelligence and military.

MEMO to PM Netanyahu: way past time to stop talking and to give the order – bombs away! Don’t fall short by caving. Muster your courage. Otherwise, (Jewish) history will be very unforgiving.

INTRODUCTION TO PART TWO OF THE INQUISITR’S INTERVIEW WITH ADINA KUTNICKI

While children recoil in horror, men murder shouting Allah’s name and women cower in Burqas.

As we reflect on the trials and tribulations of the last six years since a little-known US Senator from Illinois was proclaimed the Second Coming at his presidential inauguration, we see a world in chaos under the leadership of Barack Hussein Obama. When we examine the global repercussions of Obama’s time in office, a frightening pattern emerges. Every corner of the planet has experienced a never-ending cycle of violent Jihad and Islamic terrorism as America’s President embraces the Muslim Brotherhood, apologizes for America’s past behavior, and throws one ally after the other under the proverbial bus.

No longer able to blame Bush, Obama’s presidency is marred by the obliteration of one Arab nation after the other at the hands of ISIS and an ever-increasing roster of like-minded Islamic terror organizations. Millions have fled their homes to struggle for survival in refugee camps or starve to death on lonely mountain tops. Parents have literally flung their own children to their doom from the heights rather than allow them to fall into the hands of the demented child molesters of ISIS, who sell girls as young as six as sex-slaves.

Happy to fill the void created by Mr. Obama’s unconscionable decision to completely withdraw the American military from Iraq and his misguided campaign of destruction in Libya, the Twelvers of Iran now control Iraq, Libya, Lebanon, and Gaza. The Ayatollahs who rule Iran with an iron fist are quite content to be the world’s leading financiers of Islamic terrorism as they make speeches calling for the total destruction of Israel and the annihilation of the Jewish people.

Now a lame duck president, Obama is showing his true colors to Israel. While he once proclaimed, “Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided,” he has made a mockery of his words. No longer worried about alienating voters who support Israel, he demands the Jewish state divides Jerusalem, returns to the indefensible borders of 1948, and creates a 23rd Arab Islamic nation in Judea and Samaria. While constantly browbeating Israel for even building Jewish homes in Jerusalem, Obama has not said a single word about Abbas announcing to the world that the nation of Palestine will be 100 percent Jew-Free.

Israel faces the threat of total annihilation if Iran acquires deliverable atomic bombs and the slow death of the Jewish state if Palestine becomes a nation under the Obama peace initiative. As Israel struggles for its very survival in a world that deliberately forgets the United Nations reestablished Israel in 1948 specifically to be the national homeland of the Jewish people, a relentless Obama demands that Israeli leaders shut up, do what he tells them and trust him alone with Israel’s very existence.

OBAMA AND ISLAM

WOLFF BACHNER: How can the elected leaders of America’s closest allies, many of whom have been victims of Obama’s temper tantrums, insulting lectures and juvenile bullying, remain silent while Obama continues to ignore the Islamist war on the entire non-Muslim world?

ADINA KUTNICKI: Wolff, oh my. In no uncertain terms, your questions are akin to rapid fire exchanges of ammunition. Regardless, I will dive into them sans any armor, sugar coating or PC balderdash. Pointedly, it is through conducting said interviews, depressing as they are, that I hope to offer Inquisitr’s readers additional insight into some of the most pressing issues of our time. Nevertheless, I apologize in advance for being the (constant) bearer of bad news, and for any ensuing headache and heartburn.

From the onset, discussions relative to Obama, his nexus to Islamic terror and Israel piggyback each other. As a result, some of my analysis will, by extrapolation, intersect between segmented questions. Subsequent answers are, de facto, inter-linking parts of the same (geo-political) jigsaw puzzle.

That being said, in the main, western leaders are collectively “tired of fighting…tired of winning.” This self defeating (Orwellian) phrase was coined by none other than the most appeasing leader within Israel, ex President Peres. Tragically, there exists a laundry list of candidates who possess the requisite traits for such a distinctive appellation. However, Peres is in a class by himself, and the “honor” belongs to him. Readers may innocently inquire: why is he being singled out?

Acutely, Peres’s lengthy political life (refusing to retire gracefully from the political stage, despite all the wreckage and mangled body parts his “peace at all costs” train caused) is infused with the same sickness plaguing a preponderance of western leaders – an unholy addiction to appeasement. Therefore, he serves as their “poster boy”, the elder “statesman”. More specifically, he is treated like a rock star within Euro capitals and Washington’s leftist elite, hence, he must be unmasked. Birds of a feather.

Simply put, he ingrained within Israeli society the damnable “conceptzia” of appeasement, as a preferred way forward. KADIMA… קדימה. His ilk replaced unapologetic hard-core Zionism – a righteous and valued Jewish doctrine – and substituted surrender as a “strategic” and national imperative. Did you ever??

Resultant, since then, Zionists have paid (with no end in sight) in blood, sweat and tears for the fantasies of successive leaders. Now, does this sound like a gaggle of leaders (similar to their Euro counterparts) who are (mentally or morally) capable of raising their voices against ” Obama’s temper tantrums, insulting lectures and juvenile bullying while Obama continues to ignore the Islamist war on the entire non-Muslim world?”

Consequentially, the aforementioned damage is the deadly coinage paid for Peres’s (and others) “peace” illusions and delusions. Effectively, once “peaceniks” (aka leftists) become invested in their besieged mindsets, frankly, it is easier to separate pigs from their crap, instead of attempting to convince them to volte-face.

Along this dangerous trajectory, increasingly, as Islamic forces smell weakness, the west’s encirclement by Islamic jihad grows by leaps and bounds and in direct proportion. In the meanwhile, western leaders (Israel’s in the forefront) are gripped with a form of collective Stockholm Syndrome. Essentially, they are held captive by the biggest lie propagated (miss-educating) within Middle Eastern Studies Departments; the historical falsity of Orientalism.

Audaciously, through mendacious falsehoods, the late Edward Said was able to guilt (and game) western leaders (elected and non-elected) into paying penance for all the ills endemic within the Arab/Muslim world.

In other words, traditional U.S. allies, by and large, are liberal in outlook. We get that. However, liberalism, when coupled with Orientalism, becomes a recipe for western defeat. It is within this warped (mental and so-called historical) prism that barbarians morph into victims and victims become aggressors… Alice-in-Wonderland….through the looking glass too. Additionally, once you add into the tempest certain pressure points (exerted by unelected power players within the radical left), the notion of fighting for western values becomes a Herculean task. DOA.

Inherently, in order to struggle for ones national ethos, one has to believe that its concepts and underpinnings are worth fighting (possibly dying) for. Ominously, because traditional allied leaders place little (to zero) value in preserving western civilization, Obama can behave akin to both a blatant bully and a petulant child, secure in the knowledge that there will be no meaningful push back. PC (im)moral relativism/equivalence has catapulted the west to the brink. Yes, it has.

Killing Jews for Arafat's dream of destroying Israel and creating an Islamic Palestine from the River to the sea.

While Obama pressures Israel to divide Jerusalem and sign a suicidal peace treaty, Hamas dreams of finishing what Hitler started.

WOLFF BACHNER: Why do millions of American voters continue to support a duplicitous, deceitful President who blames the depraved crimes against humanity being perpetrated by the Qur’an waving Islamist butchers of ISIS, Boko Haram and dozens of other Islamofascist terror groups on an imaginary lack of career opportunities and good jobs in the Islamic world?

ADINA KUTNICKI: Specifically, as to why a segment of American voters still support Obama (my “tribe” included), well, the same combination of historical and moral blindness permeates the electorate, as much as it does western leadership. Not only that, but it is decidedly more comfortable to believe that Islamic barbarism has nothing to do with Islam, rather than the reverse. Additionally, we can’t afford to discount basic ignorance, so let’s be honest: not all folks can separate fact from fiction. Thereby, they believe Obama and gang’s fairytale stories: yes, Islam is a “religion of peace.” Dumb as oxen.

Yet, an added caveat to their willingness to “see no Islamic evil, hear no Islamic evil” (regardless of the unyielding butchering) simply dovetails into the “gimme gimme…everything for free” crowd. Ask yourselves: how could it be that countless Americans value free cell phones (and attendant services) above national concerns?

In gut-wrenching seriousness, you cannot make this stuff up. Crazy.

Alas, those of us who value hard work (while maintaining a healthy dose of patriotism, perhaps, coupled with Zionism), in a nutshell, are considered whack jobs.

Obama and Netanyahu acting civil for the cameras.

Obama and Netanyahu acting civil for the cameras.

WOLFF BACHNER: In your opinion, is Obama trying to force Israel to surrender to a peace plan that would endanger the very survival of the Jewish state? Does he view Israel as a sovereign democratic nation and a valuable ally of the United States or as a racist, rogue state in need of correction and outside intervention?

ADINA KUTNICKI: Segueing back to Obama’s malignant mistreatment of Israel, its dimensions are all over the map, so to speak. In both word and deed, he blames Israel for every calamity befalling the Arab/Muslim world. Again, his worldview harks back to Orientalism and its “intellectual” twin poison, colonialism.

Notably, he was raised in a family where colonialism shaped his outlook. It also doesn’t help that he harbors unremitting anti-semitic feelings emblematic to leftists and Islamists. A double whammy. Under this converging vortex a perfect storm is always brewing, eliciting the real question: how could he not despise Israel, being that those closest to him uphold similar leanings? The axiom, “tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are” is an authentic truism.

Revealingly, the following video attests to the efficacy of the aforementioned worldview. Lo and behold, Edward Said (the godfather of Orientalism) is its author. Even more so, Said (up until his death) and Obama were VERY close friends, and this is a fact.

Due to all of the above (and so much more), let there be no doubt: Obama views Israel as a “rogue” nation-state, a historical “mistake” which must be rectified. It follows that any envisioned “peace” plan (which would be acceptable to him) would, in actuality, result in Israel becoming a miniaturized rump, incapable of fending off her enemies. In essence, dying a slow death is his preferred option, but he is no longer counting on one avenue to eliminate Israel as an “irritant.”

Iran's pursuit of the atomic bomb has brought the world to the brink of a nuclear nightmare

Iran’s pursuit of the atomic bomb has brought the world to the brink of a nuclear nightmare

WOLFF BACHNER: Do you believe that Obama is determined to sign a treaty with Iran just to enhance his reputation and establish his legacy? Or do you believe Obama has far more nefarious and destructive intentions that will do unimaginable harm to Israel and the entire world? Is he willing to allow Iran to develop nuclear weapons to punish Israel for refusing to submit to his demands and to payback Netanyahu for putting Israel’s survival ahead of Obama’s policies?

ADINA KUTNICKI: Enter, Iran.

In answer to your all important question relative to Iran, I firmly believe that Obama views Iran as a double-edged weapon. On the one hand, Obama wants to go down in history as the only world leader capable of bringing Iran’s mullahs to the negotiating table, such that it is. But the overriding factor involves much more than his legacy, falsified, as we know it will (eventually) be.

Paradoxically, American patriots and Israeli Zionists are not the only ones who see through Obama’s willful deceit, his smoke and mirrors show.Glaringly, the Gulf states are more than leery and hold Obama wholly responsible for the regional (and global) chaos. Yes, what a startling turn of (geo-political) events.

Writing in the Saudi daily Al-Jazirah, columnist Dr. Ahmad Al-Faraj, while supporting Israeli’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before Congress, not only called Obama “one of the worst U.S. presidents;” he also exposed the nature of so-called “democratic revolutions” in the region. Stated al-Faraj:

“Since Obama is the godfather of the prefabricated revolutions in the Arab world, and since he is the ally of political Islam, [which is] the caring mother of [all] the terrorist organizations, and since he is working to sign an agreement with Iran that will come at the expense of the U.S.’s longtime allies in the Gulf, I am very glad of Netanyahu’s firm stance and [his decision] to speak against the nuclear agreement at the American Congress despite the Obama administration’s anger and fury.”

Even so, as some of Inquisitr’s readers are already aware, I operate a geo-political blog, among other related endeavors. Its overriding essence revolves around American and Israeli concerns. This is no accident.

So as an American-Israeli (possessing a strong grounding in geo-politics, the Middle East and with a specialty in the Muslim Brotherhood), Islam, with all its facets, has become a steady “companion”, almost like a second skin.

Most advisedly, always keep the following uppermost in mind: there is no distinction between Sunni and Shia Islamic designs towards America, Israel and the west in general. Their main point of friction revolves around an internal struggle for hegemony, as to who lands on top for ultimate control of the ummah, the collective community of Islamic peoples. Supra-national.

Thus, it makes no sense to rework the wheel, being that a full-on analysis (re Obama’s intentions respective to Iran) has been recently explored at my blog site.

Consequentially – and as a parting “gift” and adjunct to this interview – let me present, ” HUSSEIN Obama’s Subterfuge Via Iran’s Centrifuges: “Israel’s Voice” Takes Charge In Washington, D.C. March 3, 2015. Raise Your Voices Too!”-

Obama’s Mid East Sunni “Rebels” (Backed By PM Netanyahu) Catapulted ISIS Inside Israel! How Did This Happen? Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

A fighter of the Islamic State (ISIS)

BACK in September 2014, this investigative journalist was asked to assess the (eventual) blow back from Israel’s defensive war against Hamas – the Brotherhood’s Gazan arm – at a major interview. Its necessity, its basis, lied in the fact that Hamas’s leadership was left unscathed, even after a summer long, fiery hot war. The central query became: why weren’t they vanquished?

IT is no exaggeration to state that PM Netanyahu fell far short of achieving victory, regardless of the leadership’s bloviating, huffing, and puffing. It serves no purpose, other than cosmetic in nature, to place lipstick on a less than kosher pig. If anything, those who recognize when strategic imperatives haven’t been met must never, ever cover up their leadership’s shortcomings. In fact, it is incumbent to highlight them, bringing to bear related (and what should have been anticipated) knock-on effects.

THAT being said, pay attention to the aforementioned interview:

In respect to the strategic implications for Israel – as a result of PM Netanyahu’s utter refusal to bury Hamas – he opened the door for ISIS and in more ways than one. Few are aware that the lengthy battle between Israel and Hamas (with Hamas’s stature growing, commensurate with the amount of time that they were able to hold out against the vaunted IDF) allowed ISIS to slip right into Israel proper! Hezbollah, Iran’s proxy arm, is more than taking note. Other jihadi terror outfits too.

“As the Islamic State (formerly ISIS) continues its bloody conquest of Iraq and Syria and begins invading Lebanon, all in the name of establishing a global Sunni Muslim caliphate system, signs of support for the extremist are being seen among Israel’s Arab citizens.

Channel 10 exposed on Sunday that in recent months black ISIS flags have been commonly seen in Arab-Israeli towns in northern and coastal Israel, notably in the cities of Nazareth and Akko.

The flags have been seen flying among both Muslim and Christian Arab citizens of Israel, an ironic move given that ISIS in Iraq has emptied cities of their Christian populations by issuing them an ultimatum either to convert to Islam, pay non-Muslim jhizya taxes – or die.” – http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/183896#.U_7eiTIWyRk

Understood?….(read the whole thing)

Just like Hitler, ISIS executes 100's of Iraqi POW's and dumps their bodies in a ditch. It is no coincidence that Mein Kamph is the second most popular book after the Qur'an in the Islamic world.

(Just like Hitler, ISIS executes 100’s of Iraqi POW’s and dumps their bodies in a ditch. It is no coincidence that Mein Kamph is the second most popular book after the Qur’an in the Islamic world.)

ISIS’s foreshadowing within Israel, housed at the above (Sept. 2014) interview at Inquisitr, led to a follow up strategic commentary analysis at this site, Dec. 20, 2014. It asserts, in part: 

MUCH has been written at this site about Obama Inc.’s support for the “rebels”, most of whom have long been connected to Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra and Salafist offshoots, including ISIS. 

IN fact, regarding the connections – on a multiplicity of occasions – mega alarm bells blared. Most recently, the following was cited: U.S. military confirms that Obama is sabotaging fight against ISIS! As is said, them’s fighting words.

BUT little has been publicly discussed about PM Netanyahu’s decision to “assist” Barack HUSSEIN Obama with his oft ballyhooed “rebels”, to aid Washington in rolling back ISIS. Yes, that would have been a righteous strategic mission, and arguably in Israel’s national interests. Few would contest to the contrary. Just listen to the Druze community on both borders of the Golan (albeit, a little farther down in the analysis), where they make their voices known.

STIPULATED, PM Netanyahu’s joined-at-the-hip scenario depended upon many factors. Nevertheless, as always, Israel’s citizens must demand that any outcome results in their favor. Inherently, two compelling factors stood in the forefront and had to be taken into account. Alas, they weren’t. Why not?

TRENCHANTLY, the “rebels” had to be incontrovertibly in the camp of the “good guys”. Otherwise, why would Israel go anywhere near them, regardless of Washington’s arm twisting?……

The Syrian rebel militia Al Yarmouk Shuhada Brigades, backed and trained for two years by US officers, mostly CIA experts, in Jordan, and supported by the Israeli army, has abruptly dumped these sponsors and joined up with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, DEBKAfile’s exclusive military and counter-terrorism sources reveal.…..

NOT to be lost in the discussion, the impending storm, butting up against the encroachment of ISIS live Israel’s Golan Druze (alongside Israeli Jewish communities), many of whom have relatives right over the border within Syria’s Druze community. Druze, on both sides of the border, are terrified by what they are actually witnessing with their own eyes; their encirclement by ISIS, with the “rebels” in tow……

ALONG this dangerous terrain, certain matters have come to this investigative journalist’s attention, being an American-Israeli living in Israel. Significantly (and attributed to a Golani Druze journalist, who shall remain nameless), he interviewed Syrian Druze and they credibly documented ISIS, for quite some time, inside their border, one which is adjacent to Israel’s Golan!

THE urgent query becomes: could it be remotely possible, in any rational reality – with Israel’s second to none “eyes in the sky” and other operational capabilities – that they haven’t seen the “rebels” merging with ISIS, long before this week’s “announcement”? Whom are they kidding?

IN this regard, there is a growing sense of outrage within the Druze community, as they realize that Israel’s leadership “lent” the IDF to quarterback for Obama’s “rebels”, those whom have proven to be (many months ago) ISIS affiliated.

IT gets worse.

ONCE again, a source has confirmed an unfathomable situation: Israel’s gov’t is clearly taking care of the medical needs of Obama’s “rebels”.

REPORTEDLY (another contact would have to go into hiding, if his identity was revealed), Israeli hospitals are at their disposal! Therefore, it is up to others to document the story’s underlying basis.

IN April 2014, over 10 Islamists (identified as either ISIS or Al-Nusra…six of one, half a dozen of another) were being treated in a Tsfat (Israeli) hospital for almost an entire month. To wit, they were separated from the rest of the patients, they were forbidden to walk around the hospital, and they were always guarded by IDF soldiers. By the way, it doesn’t matter a wit how this source was able to identify their presence. That’s neither here nor there…..(continue reading)

NOT only that, but this week’s “shocking” confirmation (albeit, hardly hinting how this nightmare came to pass…almost as if out of thin air) brings ISIS full circle, and into the heart of Israel! Just hang on….

The Israel Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet) has arrested seven Israeli Arabs, residents of the Galilee, for setting up an official Islamic State (ISIS) affiliate branch in Israel, it was cleared for publication Sunday. 

The Shin Bet said that the seven admitted that over the last year they had formed a Salafi jihadi group, which they later aligned with ISIS.

One of them also admitted to purchasing weapons to commit terror attacks on Israelis, specifically against the security establishment and the Druze community, in ISIS’s name. Several more Galilee residents were arrested in this context.

The seven have now been named as:

  • Adnan Jameel Said Al-A-Din, 40, from Nazareth; a lawyer by trade.
  • Karim Morsal Khaled Abu Saleh, aged 22, from Sakhnin.
  • Hussam Aziz Hamdal Marsiat, aged 30, a resident of Deir Hanna and past terrorist prisoner.
  • Alaa Mahmoud Khaled Abu Saleh, aged 27, from Beer Sheva; originally from Sakhnin.
  • Fadi Mohammed Salim Bashir, aged 29, a resident of Sakhnin.
  • Khaled Marsal Khaled Abu Saleh, aged 30, a resident of Sakhnin.
  • Mohammed Ibrahim Mohammed Abu-Saleh, aged 27, a resident of Sakhnin, a pharmacy intern by trade.

All seven met with a senior Sheikh running anti-Israel terror groups in the north, who was not named in the report; the Sheikh encouraged them to form the jihadist group and carry out terror attacks.

Meeting the group held included preparations to join ISIS in Syria, tutorials on how to make Molotov cocktails, and animal slaughter as “training” to slaughter “infidels” in jihadist attacks.

In addition, the group was in touch with ISIS terrorists via social media, including with other Israeli Arabs who have left for Syria to join the group. In October, sources revealed that no fewer than 30 Arab citizens of Israel have joined ISIS; there is a move in the Knesset to revoke their citizenship.

Al-A-Din presented himself as an “ISIS representative in Palestine,” according to the ISA, and operated as the ringleader of the group. Al-A-Din preached terror attacks against Jews specifically and ran much of the activities during meetings.

Karim Abu Salah actually attempted to leave for Syria in July 2014 to join the jihad forces fighting there, but was turned away at the last minute by securityforces after intelligence came in on his intentions, the ISA further revealed. Abu Salah then turned to Al-A-Din to make contact with ISIS in Syria and raise money for his departure.

An indictment has been filed against all seven in the Haifa District Court, on suspicion of membership and activity in an unlawful association, supporting a terrorist organization and attempted contact with a foreign agent.

An additional man, Omar Musa Khalil Abu Kush, born in 1986, was also arrested in connection to the case. Abu Kush recently completed his medical studies at the University of Jordan Science and Technology (JUST). Abu Kush was arrested in November for attempting to join the Galilee cell; he admitted under interrogation that he supported ISIS and met with members of the organization in Jordan to discuss going to fight there.

The indictment follows news earlier this month that an ISIS-inspired terror cell was broken up by the IDF in Hevron.

RECALL, the above cited commentary (Dec. 20, 2014) specifically tied in the dangers to the Druze community, as well as to the majority Jewish public at large. 

MORE pointedly, it has been shared (as always, the confidentiality of sources are never revealed) with this investigative journalist that “there are two schools of thought in the government about Syria, one that we should help al-Nusra/al-Qaeda and the other that we should not get involved. So far the pro-al-Qaeda position is the one which has been adopted.

This had apparently not changed as a result of information that al-Qaeda and ISIS are working together, this is going on now, and there is no indication that they are going to change this. The idea is that Al-Qaeda will defeat Hizbollah for Israel. There is no thinking about what will happen after that, the likelihood that this will mean that it will turn out that we are supporting ISIS, or any other obvious objections to this.”  

MOST significantly for Israel, assisting Al-Nusra in Syria is official (albeit on the QT) government policy, and this investigative journalist has this information from people in contact with the highest levels of the Israeli government.

Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra Front has issued a new threatening audio message featuring its leader warning the West “will pay the heaviest price” for its actions. The Syrian group is reportedly now joining up with the estranged Islamic State militants….

TAKE it to the (strategic) bank.

(Islamist Syrian rebel group Jabhat al-Nusra members gesture while posing on a tank on Al-Khazan frontline of Khan Sheikhoun, northern Idlib province.)

INTRINSICALLY, what leader in his right (no pun intended) mind, other than a mentally besieged one, would place his nation’s lot in with Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s “strategic” plans, understanding full well that Washington’s backed “rebels” are laying waste to Christian and minority communities in the Mid East and Africa? 

MOST significantly, what kind of supine leadership would “climb down” from a righteous strategic hit and operational coup against Iran/Hezbollah, on behalf of Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s arm twisting? 

INHERENTLY, no one with an ounce of strategic acumen should evince shock…shock…at the latest ISIS encampment within Israel. To the contrary. Had it not occurred, now THAT would have been the shock!

Israel Smacks Down Syria & Russia;ADVANCED Russian Hardware Destroyed.Assists America Too.What’s The Calculus?Commentary By Adina Kutnicki

{re-blogged at Islam Exposed}

{re-blogged at Jews Down Under}

MANY have heard about the IAF’s lighting strikes into Syria, especially over the last few years. As always, they are not for nothing, irrespective of the whining from assorted (near and far) foes. Guaranteed, they are not training exercises to prove their mettle. That ship has sailed. In fact, the only air force that can compete with the IAF (at times, beat) is the USAF. {blogger’s note: this site is pro-American and pro-Israeli, make no mistake…but, bear in mind, there are various “sore loser” explanations in the link below}

“How badly did the United States Air Force Get Beaten By The Israeli Air Force During Red-Flag Exercises Or War-Games Exercises (that were not classified)?”

SO with the above understanding in mind, readers must recognize that nations are operating, as they should, in their own national interests. But it is equally intrinsic to realize when it is prudent to work together and when to go it alone, even parting company with an ally. This is a lesson PM Netanyahu too often shuns. In fact, the 2014 summer-long fiery war with Hamas should become EXHIBIT NUMBER ONE; it demonstrated that tying Israel’s strings to Obama Inc. evinced incalculable knock-on effects. The full blown evaluation can be found within the following interview. A relevant excerpt sets the tone:

Adina Kutnicki: Wolff, before we review the dangers associated with the newly-formed Muslim-American party, it must be reiterated: traditional American allies are caught up in a horrifying spider’s web through their association with the Obama administration. Poisonous.

Illustrative of said entangling, one has to internalize when it is in a nation’s best interests to align with a “best friend” and when prudence demands a “trial” separation, at least for the time being.

Basically, PM Netanyahu, MIT smartie that he is, hasn’t figured out this seemingly simple calculus. Along this trajectory, through his joined-at-the-hip actions with Barack HUSSEIN Obama (don’t be distracted by their public tussles – as media grabbing as they are – that’s not where the action/collusion is) Israel now finds herself “involved” with Sunni jihadists, the likes of which include Al Qaeda, Al Nusra and ISIS! Yup.

Trenchantly, there is a “quiet” war being fought on the Syrian side of Israel’s northern Golan border to capture key sites. It may very well blow up Israel’s Golan front. Currently, the struggle is between Assad’s henchmen and the aforementioned Sunni jihadists. These are the same “rebels” whom Obama Inc. has “surreptitiously” armed, ever since the administration entered into an absolutely illegal war in Libya. Its (hidden) basis was to arm Sunni terrorists to take over the region for the Muslim Brotherhood! Full circle.

Resultant, instead of PM Netanyahu opting out of choosing between one Islamic devil over another (Assad’s forces are inseparable from Iran’s proxy pawns), thereby, reacting to whichever side illegally fires from Syria into Israel with resolute IDF firepower, Israel is now – like it or not – aiding those who abet Hamas. Ditto, Assad/Iran have been doing likewise.

Assuredly, there are times when NOT choosing sides makes the most strategic sense. However, this is definitely not the case with the Kurdish issue. Alas, it was a relief that PM Netanyahu publicly stated his support for Kurdish independence from Iraq. As is said, even a broken clock can be right once in a while.

Stipulated, sans a scintilla of a doubt, under PM Netanyahu’s missteps, the dangers to Israel have never been greater….

IN this regard, this week’s Israeli airstrike into Syria wielded a two-edge sword; a dual track. Yes, as critical as this investigative journalist is of PM Netanyahu’s penchant for spinelessness, this go around he exerted proper hyper-muscle and secured Israel’s national interests – finally.

High-ranking American military sources revealed Monday, Dec. 8, that Israel’s air strikes near Damascus the day before wiped out newly-arrived Russian hardware including missiles that were dispatched post haste to help Syria and Hizballah frustrate a US plan for a no-fly zone over northern Syria.

The advanced weapons were sent over, as DEBKAfile reported exclusively Sunday, after Russian President Vladimir Putin learned that the Obama administration and the Erdogan government were close to a final draft on a joint effort to activate a no-fly zone that would bar Syrian air force traffic over northern Syria.

The Kremlin has repeatedly warned – of late in strong messages through back channels – that the establishment of a no-fly or buffer zone in any part of Syria would be treated as direct American intervention in the Syria war and result in Russian military intervention for defending the Assad regime.
According to the US-Turkish draft, American warplanes would be allowed to take off from the Turkish airbase of Incirlik in the south for operations against Syrian warplanes, assault helicopters or drones entering the no-go zone. Thus far, Ankara has only permitted US surveillance aircraft and drones the use of Incirlik for tracking the movements of Islamic State fighters in northern Syria.
The Obama administration was long deterred from implementing a no-fly zone plan by the wish to avoid riling Moscow or facing the hazards of Syria’s world-class air defense system.

But Washington was recently won over to the plan by a tacit deal with Damascus for American jets to be allowed entry to help Kurdish fighters defend their northern Syrian enclave of Kobani against capture by al Qaeda’s IS invaders.

However, the US administration turned down a Turkish demand to extend the no-fly zone from their border as far as Aleppo, Syria’s largest city, over which Syrian army forces are battling rebels and advancing slowly into the town.
The no-fly zone planned by US strategists would be narrow – between a kilometer and half a kilometer deep inside Syria. However Moscow is standing fast against any such plan and objects to US planes making free of Syrian airspace, a freedom they are now afforded over Kobani.
To drive this point home, the Russians delivered a supply of advanced anti-air missiles and radar, whose use by the Syrian army and transfer to Hizballah in Lebanon were thwarted by the Israeli air strikes Sunday.

Moscow reacted swiftly and angrily with a Note to the United Nations Monday accusing Israel of “aggressive action” and demanding “that such attacks should not happen again… Moscow is deeply worried by this dangerous development, the circumstances of which demand an explanation.”

The Assad regime has held back from reacting to past Israeli air raids for preventing advanced weaponry from reaching Hizballah. This time, spokesmen in Damascus warned that their government’s response would be clandestine and cause Israel “unimaginable harm.”

EXTRAPOLATING further – and despite the warning that Syria’s response would be clandestine and cause Israel “unimaginable harm” – the fact of the matter is that they never cease plotting to exert “unimaginable harm”. Israel is, as is said, damned if it does and damned if it doesn’t. But never mind. Its PRIMARY vested interest (by striking Syria, the transit route to Lebanon’s Hezbollah) is to ALWAYS keep advanced anti-missile hardware out of Hezbollah’s hands. In essence, these air strikes (and other clandestine operations) frustrate Iran’s proxy arm from causing grave damage to Israel. Significantly, said pre-emptive actions should be a no-brainer, even for Israel’s appeasement-oriented political leaders. Not only that, they are manifestly legal under international law, despite Russia’s (and Syria’s) shrill pronouncements before the U.N.’s anti-Israel gaggle of kleptocrats.

AS detailed by this site‘s close and valued contact, Professor Louis Rene Beres, in his joint analysis with U.S. Admiral Leon “Bud” Edney & General Thomas G. McInerney at Oxford’s University Press, anticipatory self-defense is codified:

Enter international law. Designed, inter alia, to ensure the survival of states in a persistently anarchic world – a world originally fashioned after the Thirty Years War and the Peace of Westphalia in 1648 – this law includes the “inherent” right of national self-defense. Such right may be exercised not only after an attack has already been suffered, but, sometimes, also, in advance of an expected attack.

What can now be done, lawfully, about relentless Iranian nuclear weapons development?  Do individual states, especially those in greatest prospective danger from any expressions of Iranian nuclear aggression, have a legal right to strike first defensively? In short, could such a preemption ever be permissible under international law?

For the United States, preemption remains a part of codified American military doctrine. But is this national doctrine necessarily consistent with the legal and complex international expectations of anticipatory self-defense?

To begin, international law derives from multiple authoritative sources, including international custom. Although written law of the UN Charter (treaty law) reserves the right of self-defense only to those states that have already suffered an attack (Article 51), equally valid customary law still permits a first use of force if the particular danger posed is “instant, overwhelming, leaving no choice of means and no moment for deliberation.” Stemming from an 1837 event in jurisprudential history known as the Caroline, which concerned the unsuccessful rebellion in Upper Canada against British rule, this doctrine builds purposefully upon a seventeenth-century formulation of Hugo Grotius.

Self-defense, says the classical Dutch scholar in, The Law of War and Peace (1625), may be permitted “not only after an attack has already been suffered, but also in advance, where the deed may be anticipated.”  In his later text of 1758, The Right of Self-Protection and the Effects of Sovereignty and Independence of Nations, Swiss jurist Emmerich de Vattel affirmed: “A nation has the right to resist the injury another seeks to inflict upon it, and to use force and every other just means of resistance against the aggressor.”

Article 51 of the UN Charter, limiting self-defense to circumstances following an attack, does not override the customary right of anticipatory self-defense.  Interestingly, especially for Americans, the works of Grotius and Vattel were favorite readings of Thomas Jefferson, who relied  heavily upon them for crafting the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America.

We should also recall Article VI of the US Constitution, and assorted US Supreme Court decisions. These proclaim, straightforwardly, that international law is necessarily part of the law of the United States.

The Caroline notes an implicit distinction between preventive war (which is never legal), and preemptive war. The latter is not permitted merely to protect oneself against an emerging threat, but only when the danger posed is “instant” and “overwhelming.” Using such a literal framework, it could first appear doubtful that the United States may now construct a persuasive legal argument for preemption against Iran. This would be the case even if the planned American defense operation were carefully limited to exclusively nuclear military targets.

Nonetheless, we live in very different times. Grotius, Vattel and those later jurists who were focused on the Caroline could never have anticipated the genuinely existential risks soon to be posed by a nuclear Iran.  Understandably, the permissibility of anticipatory self-defense is far greater in the nuclear age than in prior centuries. Today, after all, it is easy to imagine, simply waiting impotently to suffer an enemy nuclear attack could be entirely irrational. Even suicidal.

A  special danger is posed by terrorist group surrogates. If not prevented from receiving nuclear weapons or fissile materials from patron states, such proxies (e.g., Hezbollah, Hamas, al-Qaeda) could inflict enormous harms upon targets that would be out of range of nuclear-tipped missiles.

The United States is not the only country at risk from Iranian nuclear weapons. Israel is at greater risk. There is, however, a long and respected international legal tradition that Great Powers have proportionately great responsibilities. This would suggest, from a management of world power standpoint, that America must remain ever-mindful of a potential nuclear threat to other, far smaller states.

MOREOVER, the international precepts outlined above are doubly applicable for distinct genocidal foes. Thus, how many times, how many ways, do Israel’s foes have to declare: it is their intent to destroy her, before pre-emption (against Iran, its proxy arms or others) becomes the only nation-saving option? Ten….50….100…

NOT to be lost in the discussion, this week’s  strike assisted the U.S. military in its quest to block Russia from imposing a “no-fly” zone over Syrian airspace, and all that it entails. Resultant, it became a win-win to strike.

CONCOMITANTLY, Israel’s leaders must steer clear of Obama Inc.’s “relationship” with ISIS and its attendant terror arms, thus, knowing when to “part company”!
