Has Israel struck Hezbollah targets in Syria?

If so, the IDF appears to be able to fly through Syrian air space with impunity, despite the fact that the Syrians hare armed with some of Russia’s latest air defense systems.

The Syrian Al-Marsad organization for human rights reported on Friday that Thursday’s attack on the Dabaa military airport in central Syria was aimed at Hezbollah members and militias supporting the regime. According to the report, six strong explosions, allegedly related to missile strikes, were heard in the region of Homs, near the Lebanese border.  Syrian air defense systems reportedly attempted to intercept the missiles. So far, no fatalities have been reported. Al-Marsad did not state whether the attempt was successful.

The report further claimed that the missile attack was carried out by Israel.

NATO ally Turkey now in lock-step with Iran

This is our ally? I’m sorry. turkey is a great nation. It was a great ally. But it has been lost to the Islamists! Taht’s the bottom line. Time to face the reality.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on Muslim leaders to unite and confront Israel, days after scores of Palestinians were killed by Israeli snipers as they marked 70 years of Israeli occupation.

Speaking at an extraordinary summit of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Friday, Erdogan said Israel should be held accountable over the killings which drew widespread international condemnation and triggered a wave of protests from Asia, through the Middle East, to North Africa.

“To take action for Palestinians massacred by Israeli bandits is to show the whole world that humanity is not dead,” Erdogan told the group of Muslim leaders gathered in Turkey’s largest city, Istanbul.

The Turkish president described Israel’s killing of Palestinians as “thuggery, atrocity and state terror,” and said the US’ recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital would inevitably haunt it.

As the Chinese force-feed pork to a million Muslims, the UN sends war crimes group to Gaza!

Of course! What a shock! In the meantime, as many as a million Muslims are being fed pork in Chinese concentration camps! Damn! Keep the narrative focus where it belongs–ON THE JEWS!

GAZA/LONDON: The UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Friday voted to send a team of international war crimes investigators to Gaza to investigate the violent protests that have left more than 100 people dead.

An international commission of inquiry is the UNHRC’s highest level of investigation.

But if the intention was to give hope to Palestinians after six weeks of violent confrontation along the border between Gaza and Israel, it has not entirely succeeded. In a heated tirade, Manuel Hassassian, Palestine’s envoy to Britain, dismissed the UNHRC resolution as “PR and propaganda with no kind of political weight.”

Speaking to Arab News from the West Bank, a clearly emotional Hassassian said: “All these resolutions from all the international organizations but there is nothing concrete ever on the ground. There is no implementation whatsoever.”

Israel faces international pressure; like, what else is new?

Such headlines are the equivalent of a headline about the sun rising or setting. Is it really news?

Why are Gazans being shot at the Israeli border? What are they doing there? Why do they need to be there?

How stupid do you have to be to bring toddlers to a protest? When my children were small, I lived in Washington, DC. There were plenty of protests, some peaceful, some not so peaceful. But I never made a decision to cart the kids to a protest! Managing small children in a peaceful crowd is difficult enough. My ex-wife once lost our daughter in a crowd at a mall. But the last place I’d bring my kids, unless I was hoping to secure martyrdom for my family, would be a violent protest along the Israeli-Gaza border.

Patients with gunshot wounds filled wards and hallways in Gaza’s under-equipped and overwhelmed main hospital Tuesday, with dozens still waiting in line for surgery a day after Israeli soldiers shot and killed 59 Palestinians and wounded hundreds in mass protests on the Gaza border.

The high casualty toll triggered a diplomatic backlash against Israel and new charges of excessive use of force against unarmed protesters. The U.N. Security Council began its session Tuesday with a moment of silence for the dead, and the U.N.’s special Mideast envoy said there was “no justification for the killing.”

This is, let’s be honest, what Alan Dershowitz  in 2009 called the “Hamas dead baby strategy.”!

The Hamas “dead baby” strategy – to cause as many civilian casualties as possible by firing its deadly rockets from schools and densely populated areas – is producing understandable outrage around the world. What is not understandable is why the outrage is directed against Israel, which is a victim of this strategy, rather than against Hamas, which is its perpetrator. Hamas knew exactly what it was doing when it fired more than 6,000 rockets at Israeli kindergartens, elementary schools and playgrounds from behind its own children. It was playing Russian roulette with the lives of Israeli children in order to provoke a defensive response from Israel.
