It seems that Israel is trying to fill a gap that we have raised many times. We insisted on how a ragged organization could carry out a propaganda campaign as intense and aggressive as its so-called command center (Raqqa) was practically empty. The latest news, according to US military authorities, there would be more than 300 Daq fighters in Raqqa. Imagine 300 people fighting for their survival, strumming at the same time on the keyboards of their computers, making propaganda films, while distributing threats and organizing attacks in Paris, Marseille or Las Vegas. We used to swallow everything, but still …
We can say that, overall, Israel is rebuilding the Saga of the terrorist army, starting by establishing an official stronghold in the Golan, thanks to the welcome report of the Israeli Channel 2 which is an organ of the government. Better still, recent events, both with the United States and with Israel, tend to formalize their joint work with terrorist groups in the Middle East. A coming out of sorts.
Last November, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared that his country “will not allow members of the Islamic State or other enemy actors, under cover of the war in Syria, to settle near our It turns out that this is already the case, so much so that a major IS training camp has been established just across the Golan Heights border with Israel. Although Syria’s al-Qaeda has long been a major player in southern Syria along the Israeli border, this is the first comprehensive public recognition and confirmation of the existence of a large base of operations. IS in the Golan region.
This week, Israeli media reports on the camp following Israel’s detailed Channel 2 report showing video and photographic evidence of what is described as a training and recruitment center that has already attracted hundreds of thousands of people. new terrorist recruits. Canal 2 is one of the most watched and renowned news channels in Israel and operates under the “Second Authority for Television and Radio” licensed by the Knesset and the Ministry of Communications. According to the Times of Israel :
Canal 2 says the commanders went to an enclave controlled by the Islamic State “near the Israeli border”. They set up a training camp where they recruited 300 local youths, says the report, which showed images apparently from the camp and training sessions.
Among the commanders is one of Islamic State’s best-known recruiters, Abu Hamam Jazrawi, according to the TV report.
The commanders also carry out ISIS internet propaganda campaigns from their new base that replaces the former campaign headquarters in Raqqa, the former de facto capital of extremists in northwestern Syria, where fighting to dislodge them seems to be entering their last phase.
Channel 2’s presentation also reports the presence of several senior ISIS commanders in the camp, suggesting that the terrorist group is attempting to transfer its bases to southern Syria, given that its forces seem to collapse under the blows of the homeless, Syrian army and Russian forces in the east of the country.
Times of Israel acknowledges another shocking fact, which has itself become an open secret about Israeli defense and political leaders: what he calls the long-standing relationship of “live and let live” al-Qaeda screws in the area. The Times explains :
ISIL-affiliated Khalid ibn al-Walid’s army and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham, formerly al-Qaeda-linked Front Al-Nusra, have both been settled on Israel’s borders for years.
Despite a relatively long “live and let live” relationship with these groups , the Israeli army warned of a possible – inevitable – conflict with them and prepared to respond to cross-border attacks.
Although the Israeli military has “issued warnings” against “potential” direct actions by the world’s most notorious terrorist groups that seem to be comfortably settled at Israeli border posts , it has never taken any direct action significant against these groups, targeting the Syrian army, the Iranian-linked militias and Hezbollah on a regular basis. This is a general reflection of Israel’s strategy of regime change in Syria, which has resulted in a well-documented history of assistance to al-Qaeda-affiliated rebel groups.
A Wall Street Journal investigation revealed that the relationship involved arms transfers, wage payments to anti-Assad fighters, and the treatment of wounded jihadists in Israeli hospitals, which has been widely proven by photos where Netanyahu was hailing the militia. As former acting director of the CIA, Michael Morell, has said one day directly to the Israeli public , the “dangerous game” of Israel in Syria is to sleep with al Qaeda to fight Shiite Iran.
Channel 2 News and The Times of Israel also presented an image of a previous video of a lone IS militant holding an Islamic State flag with the Israeli side of the Golan border clearly visible.
the image above: “Threats launched across the border in a video posted by an affiliate of the Islamic State on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights on September 3, 2016.”
In recent years, many current and former Israeli defense officials have gone so far as to say that IS is ultimately better than Iran and Assad. For example, the former Israeli ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, in 2014, surprised the audience at the Colorado Aspen Ideas Festival, when he said in his comments on IS that “the Sunnis represented the less harm compared to Shiites “. Oren, exposing Israel’s defense policy, fully acknowledged that he thought ISIS was “the least evil”.
Similarly, for Netanyahu and other Israeli officials, the main concern has never been those who worshiped in black dressed and were beheading Americans and burning alive people, but the possibility, according to the words of Henry Kissinger , “a Shiite and pro-Iranian territorial belt from Tehran to Beirut” and the establishment of a “radical Iranian empire”.
Now that the Israeli media has widely reported the presence of the Islamic State along the Israeli border, we wonder why such a clear and documented fact does not cause more outrage. Although the Channel 2 report was aired earlier this week, it is greeted with resounding silence in the international press. ISIS is camping along the Israeli border, but we only hear about the so-called “Iranian threat” to Israel’s existence.
