Syrian War Report – Dec. 26, 2018: Israel Strikes Syria. S-300 Is Not Employed
Late on December 25, the Israeli Air Force carried out a missile strike on targets in the Damascus International Airport area. According to reports, Israeli F-16I jets launched at least 16 missiles from Lebanese airspace.
The Syrian media stressed that the Air Defense Forces (SADF) had intercepted most of the hostile missiles, but acknowledged that at least 3 Syrian servicemen had been injured in the incident. The SADF also fired several missiles at Israeli jets involved in the strike. The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) confirmed that they had employed their own air defense systems to protect the jets.
The Syrian side did not use the S-300 air defense system delivered by Russia to repel the airstrike. Syrian personnel have not yet finished the necessary training. According to experts, the Syrian S-300 system will be put on a combat duty in the second half of January or in early February 2019.
The recent Israeli strike came a day after the Russian Defense Ministry announced that 150 servicemen of one of the surface to air-missile regiments of Russia’s Central Military District had returned from Syria.
On December 25, Syrian Army soldiers, backed up by Russian servicemen, entered the village of Arima west of the town of Manbij, a stronghold of the so-called Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF). Previously, Arima was controlled by the SDF. However, its current status is unclear. Pro-SDF sources claim that the village will be jointly controlled by the SDF and the Syrian Army. Pro-government sources claim that the village was handed over to the government.
Local sources claim that this move is the first stage of the implementation of a broader agreement, which may son be reached between the Damascus government, Russia and the Kurdish-dominated SDF.
Since the US decision to withdraw its troops from Syria and the resumption of Turkish threats to launch a new military operation against Kurdish armed groups in northern Syria, the SDF has desperately been seeking a new protector from Ankara. The Damascus government and Russia are one of the options considered by the Kurdish leadership. Another option is to hope that the remaining US personnel and French troops will be able to prevent a Turkish offensive along the entire contact line between the SDF and the Turkish military.
Meanwhile, Ankara continued its military build-up in Turkish regions bordering with northern Syria. Recently, a batch of Leopard 2A4 battle tanks were reportedly sent to the area.
The Russians are saying the Israelis used human shields in the attack.
They claim the brave Israelis hid behind civilian airliners on the way to Beirut and Damascus, creating the position where Syrian air defense could well have hit those planes had they tried to strike the brave attacking Israelis hiding behind their human shields.
This of course is the same tactic used by the brave Israelis when they hit behind the IL-20 earlier this year.
This is so classic…who cares about those airliners full of goyim..right?!… These reptilian creatures will pay the price, and it will be in fake, worthless dollars.
This is a tried and true tactic of The Chosen Ones of late, they knew that by hiding behind two commercial airliners in the landing pattern that the air defense systems would not be activated.
However, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, although in this case the reaction may well be more than ‘equal’. Look for a ‘no fly’ over Syria early next year, said year being but days away. If The Chosen Ones want to hide behind civilians, then the answer is to shoot them down as they take off. I’m sure there are enough leaks in Chosen One’s intel that such attacks are known beforehand.

The American people need irrefutable proof that Israel was involved in the 9/11 attacks. We know about the dancing Israeli’s, but it’s not enough, and not a lot of people know about that incident.
If Israel’s involvement in the 9/11 attacks was irrefutably exposed to the American public, there would be hell to pay. There would be, quite literally, chaos in the streets.
This is what needs to happen to wake America out of it’s stupor and for the “Chosenites” to finally get what they deserve.
Google USS Liberty attack by Israel.
I’d have thunk that the American people would have woken when American fought three wars as allies to the evil Al-Qaeda in Libya, Yemen and Syria. But no, everyone seems to have slept through that as well.
For that matter, I’d have thought the news that the Pentagon has stolen $21 Trillion from the taxpayers would have woken people. But no, I still just hear snoring.
Not sure what is going to wake these people up. Or get their noses out of their phone screens. I suspect it may be explosions on the scale of the equivalents of mega-tons of TNT. But by then of course, it will be far too late.
Sometimes I feel like I’m living in an episode of the Twilight Zone, and any second now I’ll hear Rod Serling’s voice doing the wrap-up.
This is when Trump speaks of fake news. Distract the masses with misinformation and have them look the other way. Who has the time in this world to inform themselves about true facts and still take care of there families and responsibilities. The information is available to all but the 1% keep all of humanity running on the hamster wheel while they look through the glass laughing. God willing one day we realize, come together as one, and bring peace back to this world.
In regards to the five dancing Israelis, filming 911, that demonstrates prior knowledge. But when one of those Israelis returns to Israel and then states that they were there to film the event on public television, that can only be considered as a confession of guilt and of full Israeli involvement.
However, when the normal American then tries to do anything about this knowledge, who does he turn to? The MSM that is run by Jews? No Chance. What about the US government itself? Well no government representative would even consider such a proposal as they are extremely aware of the consequences. Thus there is actual venue for this truth to be exposed.
But just what percentage of the American people are actually aware of the Israeli involvement? 10%? 30%? or even more than 50%.
In this latest provocation Israel has used their older aircraft, just in case, and again the time was also selected as when the Russians were sent home most probably for family reunions for Christmas.
The thought remains though as when will the Israelis take the next step and initiate a psy-ops more than likely on a American plane that they can blame on Syria?
There are now solid grounds for hoping that the truth about 9/11 will emerge
as the video below shows.
The producer of the video describes it thus –
“Sea Change – 9/11 Grand Jury to be empanelled

Thermite produces a blinding white light. The towers did not light up like sparklers on the Fourth of July! 😁 If they found chocolate chip cookie 🍪 crumbs in the dust would that be the cause of destruction? 😁
Let me introduce you to Dr. J. Douglas Beason
New weapons and how they may change war subject of talk Thursday at Museum
Light-wave energy in the same spectrum of energy found in home appliances may soon be used in a new generation of weapons. On Thursday, the Laboratory’s Associate Director for Threat Reduction, Douglas Beason, will talk about America’s new directed energy weapons in a talk at the Laboratory’s Bradbury Science Museum.
The talk is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m., and is free and open to the public. After the talk, Beason is scheduled to sign copies of his new book, “The E-Bomb: How America’s New Directed Energy Weapons will Change the Way Future Wars will be Fought,” at the Otowi Station Bookstore next to the museum.
Beason, who was named Los Alamos’ Threat Reduction Directorate (ADTR) leader in January, is a leading expert in directed energy research. At the talk, he will describe the development of a new generation of weapons that discharge light-wave energy. The technology that supplies the same spectrum of energy found in microwave ovens or television remote control devices is a revolution in weaponry, perhaps more profound than the atomic bomb. Beason will discuss these new weapons and answer the questions that everyone is asking: What is directed energy? How do these new weapons work? How lethal are they?
According to Beason, the first directed energy weapons are being tested now and their deployment is being planned for today’s battlefields.
The E-Bomb: How America’s New Directed-Energy Weapons Will Change the Way Future Wars Will be Fought
In science fiction, futuristic soldiers are often shown wielding light emitting weapons – Flash Gordon’s ray gun, Captain Kirk’s phaser, and Darth Vader’s light saber. Today, this imagined future of science fiction is on the road to reality. After more than two decades of research, the United States is on the verge of deploying a new generation of weapons that discharge light-wave energy, the same spectrum of energy found in your microwave or in your TV remote control. They’re called “directed-energy weapons” – lasers, high-powered microwaves, and particle beams – and they signal a revolution in weaponry, perhaps, more profound than the atomic bomb.
Those who control the energy control the people. But those who control their perception control everything.
The oil industry (leaded gas), tobacco industry (lung cancer), and more recently the NFL (chronic traumatic encephalopathy), have all spent millions and millions of dollars marginalizing scientific findings and the scientists that find them by way of “public relations” which is another word for propaganda. Lead in the food chain, carcinogens in the air, and brain damaged football players are all good for you, right?
The mass of each WTC tower was around 500,000 tons or 1,102,311,310.9 pounds.
Garbage trucks weigh around 33,000 pounds empty.
The destruction of each tower would equal the sound of 33,403 empty garbage trucks raining down. (a little over one quarter of all U.S. garbage trucks in service) That didn’t happen. The towers were turned into dust in mid air never hitting the ground. Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.
Both the super-duper thermite gang 👥 and the super-duper nuclear gang 👥 are covering up the lack of high heat 🔥 when a careful observation of ALL the evidence concludes that the destruction was cold molecular disassociation produced by a type of directed energy. There is also the CGI/Remote controlled plane coverup gangs 👥 – when it was actually image projection of some kind. There are also gangs 👥 that coverup both lack of high heat and image projection technology.
What high heat?
High heat is part of the government’s official conspiracy theory and is as relevant as “19 bad guys with box cutters”. Using water and dirt to quench cold molecular disassociation is not evidence of high heat.
High heat? Why hasn’t the steam cooked these workmen alive? Why are the pressurized hydraulic hoses on the heavy equipment still working and not bursting under high heat?
Why is wet dirt fuming?
Steam? If this were steam, these workers would have been cooked. If this were as hot as a grill, these people would become something that looked more like a grilled-cheese sandwich. The hoses to their torches would melt and ignite the fuel.
On September 27, 2001, the four yellow dump trucks are heading south on West Street, toward the WTC complex. Each of the dump trucks carries a uniform load of what appears to be dirt.
WHY WOULD THE DIRECTED ENERGY COVER-UP TEAM WANT 9/11 JUSTICE FOR ALL?
RICHARD GAGE – DAVID RAY GRIFFIN – STEVEN JONES
A fallacy is an error in reasoning. This differs from a factual error, which is simply being wrong about the facts. To be more specific, a fallacy is an “argument” in which the premises given for the conclusion do not provide the needed degree of support. Decredentializing a highly qualified expert like Dr. Wood by appealing to spite, ridicule, or willful ignorance does nothing to support a valid argument. Also, an opinion and an Internet connection does not qualify someone as an expert in forensic engineering and science, nor nuclear physics, nor structural engineering, nor materials engineering science, nor engineering mechanics (applied physics). The empirical research Dr. Wood performed is a way of gaining knowledge by means of direct and indirect observation or experience, not by performing experiments. Steven Jones [Journal Of Nine Eleven Studies or J.O.N.E.S.] and Greg Jenkins used to ridicule Dr. Wood by claiming that it would take more than five times the world’s energy to destroy the WTC towers. Does that mean their thermite came from off planet or “outer space”? LOL What experiments would Dr. Wood perform? What are the experiments for, to prove the buildings are still there or if the buildings are gone? Why not just look? No assumptions needed with empirical evidence! A forensic scientific investigation involves the collection and analysis of ALL of the evidence. Even though A&E911truth appeals to authority and popularity, a controlled group is not synonymous with evidence.
Those who want to cover up the evidence of what happen often falsely claim that Dr. Wood is talking about a specific weapon and a specific location of it (e.g. laser beam from outer space, or “spacebeams”). This disinformation campaign was initiated by Steven Jones on 11/11/2006 in a presentation he gave at the University of California, Berkeley [available here at timestamp 1:53:47
telling his audience that “Judy Woods (Dr. Wood) says it’s a laser or maser from space” while showing how difficult it is to hold his hand like a beam from space. Not only does Dr. Wood NOT SAY THAT, she actually RULES THAT OUT. The mechanism of destruction of a laser beam would be from heat and produce a bright and blinding light. But we know the buildings were not cooked to death. The term Directed Energy is used because energy is directed to do something different then it normally does and it is directed to do this within a certain geographic zone. [As a mental example, think of directing the binding energy of matter to repel instead of attract. A solid object would turn to atomic-sized dust. Direct this to happen within the WTC complex and not across the street.]
At the end of Chapter 20 in Dr. Wood’s book, she explains why playing “name the weapon” game is counterproductive. Name dropping trendy terms is not synonymous with understanding. The easiest example is HAARP. The full capabilities are classified. But people often name-drop the trendy term to APPEAR to know something. A tongue-in-cheek definition of HAARP stands for High Amplitude Advancement of Real Propaganda. They are just substituting “HAARP” for “Bin Laden.”
In Dr. Wood’s book, the closest she comes to “naming a weapon” is merely describing what it creates: magnetic-electrogravitic-nuclear reactions (page 365). But as soon as someone starts talking about a name, people will stop looking at the evidence which is another form of a cover up.

How about the involvement of our own US government? The whole system is a house of cards and will probably fall at the least expected time.
American citizens in several states are now required to sign what is tantamount to a loyalty pledge to Israel in order to access certain benefits or to get government jobs or keep the ones they already have.
In states like New York, Florida, Louisiana and Texas, laws are now on the books virtually criminalizing criticism of Israel, and the US Congress currently has several versions working on with the aim of coming up with something federal and permanent.
US politicians, from municipal officials all the way up through Congress and the White House are bought and paid for with Jewish money. So when they get elected they have to do what the donors want.
Sheldon Adelson spent over 100 million dollars on Trump’s White House bid, and in return he got Trump to tear up the JCPOA with Iran and move the US Embassy to Jerusalem.
Both of these actions by Trump were not in US interest, but he did it just the same.
Nicki Haley – who as governor of the state of Louisiana signed one of those laws into being – the out going US representative to the United Nations, spent 99% of her time there acting as Israel’s representative.
Almost everything she did while at the UN, had to do with Israel.
And keep on eye on the up coming 2019 annual AIPAC Conference.
Every US politician and official who has the intention of running for office or is an incumbent, will drop everything that they are doing to attend the conference and publicly pledge their undying loyalty to Israel.
Americans are not sleeping, its more serious than that.
They are in a Jewish induced coma.
“Nicki Haley – who as governor of the state of Louisiana signed one of those laws into being – the out going US representative to the United Nations, spent 99% of her time there acting as Israel’s representative.”
As far as I know Haley was not governor of Louisiana, she was governor of South Carolina. Other than that, I agree 100 % with what you said.
Nikki Haley (not her real name) was governor of South Carolina, not Louisiana.
Louisiana had Bobby Jindal, an Indian-American.
How about a companion “no fly” zone over Lebanon imposed by Syria. or would that have to be requested or approved by Lebanon first ? and would they allow that ? As is, Syria couldn’t just target Israeli planes because they were violating airspace over Lebanon, but would have to wait until fired upon to return fire, I would assume. Still, distances are so short, within the range of the S-300 most likely, over Lebanon, Israeli planes could still be targeted, though that hiding behind civilian jets does complicate the equation. Plus, like Ukraine, Israel will likely push a scene prompting retaliatory fire in an attempt to escalate the situation to bring in the U.S.
Syrian Foreign Ministry: Israel’s Attacks on Damascus Possible Due to US Support
“Syria’s Foreign Ministry said in a letter to the United Nations on Wednesday that Israel’s missile attack on Damascus and its suburbs is an evidence of unlimited support that Washington gives to Tel Aviv.
“Syria underlines that Israel’s continuous aggressive policy is possible due to the unlimited and consistent support of the American administration,” reads the statement.
The ministry added that Israeli attacks seek to drag out the Syrian conflict and boost the morale of terrorist groups that confront Bashar al-Assad’s government. Damascus also called on the UN to take steps against Israil in order to prevent such incidents in the future.
Lebanon, for its part, announced that it would send a complaint to the UN Security Council against Israel over its invasion in the country’s airspace to attack Syria.
“There was an agreement that Lebanon will file an urgent complaint to the UN Security Council against Israel and will take a decision that will protect Lebanon and [its] citizens,” said Lebanese Minister of Public Works and Transport Youssef Fenianos.”
Here we have an American regime whose main popular support base is Christian fundies wholeheartedly back the Israeli Zionazis which have just defecated on Christians everywhere by cowardly attacking Syria on Christmas Day.
The pattern is now clear. Israel violates Lebanese airspace at will, because Lebanon has neither an air defense system nor an air force st speak of. The new S300 system seems not to be fully operational yet.
As has been suggested that Syria imposes a no fly zone over Israel and strikes Israeli air bases means answering the “Sportpalastquestion” with a thunderous JA.
An AWACS over western Syria and some fighter aircraft might be a solution to that problem. Any IDF aircraft downed over Syria AND the Golan Highs are fair game.
Dangerously and cowardly hiding behind civilian airplanes is not exclusive for the IDF. The Uki airforce did the same when attacking Donbass.
A few things puzzle me.
Why did the IDF use relatively old F-16’s? What happened to the proclaimed mighty -and filthy expensive- F-35’s, with their proclaimed superior stealth capabilities? Or, did they run out of rubber aids to keep them together?
What was the purpose? Only two missiles were not shot down by Syrian air defenses, so the effectiveness is low. The consequences can be serious, according to the Debka site (regularly well-informed), an extension of the no-fly zone over Lebanon is considered.
I have a few doubts about the suggestion of downing IDF planes when taking off (this slight deviation is very rare, dear Auslander :-)). PR-technical this might not be the best option, taking into account our owned MSM. How about downing them when they (try to) return to their base?
I bet the Israeli’s knew damn well that this would cause serious repercussions, so why did they do it? I guess it’s pure PR.
Suppose their planes were downed, immediately Israel would start whining to their Janissarian servants, the USA: “now look, those goyims have the nerve to shoot back. No, you can’t leave Syria. Help us, they are filthy anti-semitic, no really we don’t strive for a ‘Greater Israel’, scouts honour, remember the Holocaust, and now look at all those vile Iranians all over the place… ”
I’m not surprised, internal PR again, that this happens on Christmas. Not very well known in the western world, traditional Judaic -talmudic- teachings are very hateful against Christianity and Christ especially. Out of respect in these days I am not going to cite very painful examples of this.
Just compare that to the joyful celebration together in Damascus of the lighting of the Christmas tree regardless of the religions of those celebrating: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TqWYoZpbmxY
Speculation -The F-35s were maybe grounded as usual but, even if not, why risk something as expensive and unreliable when you are launching from ‘safe’ Lebanese airspace just minutes from Israel? In addition the F-16 can carry far more than the 4 internal missiles of the F-35. Were the latter to carry any more exterally then stealth would be compromised so no point.
Others have suggested retaliatory measures against the F-16s which of course carries far greater geopolitical implications but here’s a fanciful suggestion instead: use stealth cruise anti-runway missiles on all Israeli airports which would lead to the Israeli jets having to land elsewhere -Beirut or Cyprus. Plus they might run out of gas and have to bail out.
Far less risk of human casualties and a lesson learned -of course even greater geopolitical implications.
It would appear that the Israelis do not regard Lebanese airspace as completely safe as they still felt the need to hide behind hundreds of human shields.
Without retaliatory measures against the Zionist military forces, you cannot seriously consider stopping these attacks. Even if they are mainly symbolic.
Syrians should start long range balistic bombing of IDF targets as retaliatory hits. Wasn’t that mentioned earlier a few days ago?
Zionists continue to fly over Lebanese territory with impunity. Russians should at least declare a no fly zone over Lebanon.
In any case, the Zionists will continue to test their neighbors defenses, while increasing the expansion of their settlements and the continued influencing of the US and European elite, and just maybe one day get their Iran war.
In theatre, used by the Russians, are Iskander missile systems. These, turned over to Syria, would pulverize Israeli bases. So, the means to “retaliate” is there.
However, we have to be realistic. Russian dominance is coming into focus in Syria and the region.
Diplomacy, driven hard by Russian military talking to the “players”, is having its effect.
Israel is waking up to the fact that their day as regional hegemon is over.
These raids are for domestic Israeli consumption. The IDF is humiliated that a second tier military, (SAA), and a Shiite Militia (Hezbollah) have shut down the hundreds of billions of dollars of military might that Tel Aviv has.
Worse for the Israelis is the stone cold hard fact that Putin and Shoigu have outsmarted them while crushing their proxies (al Nusra) and have sealed air space with Russian technology.
Note that the F-16’s are tracked from about 5 feet lift off the runway, and if the Russians chose to, could be eliminated within the flight climb to altitude.
Everyone in the military industry saw last week’s Chinese test firing of the S-400 they bought from Russia.
A missile traveling at 6100 mph was hit by a S-400 missile fired from 250 km distance. Those F-16s would not have one minute flight time if Russia decided to launch. And every pilot and their commanders understands this.
Every stakeholder in the ME understands that the Russians are being polite and decent right now.
One more misstep by Bibi and his criminal gang and the S-400s will virtually ground the IDF air force.
What the IDF attempted in the attack was to get Syria to fire and accidentally hit a civilian plane or two. This is the demonic nature of some of the Israelis.
Russia and Syria understand that they have a victory in hand, and bright future ahead.
They are being wise.
Surely, we would love to see half-dozen F-16s shot down.
It’s not necessary.
Bibi will probably push the envelope and get his AF grounded by the threat of S-400s. Hubris becomes him. And the end of his insanity is far closer than most assume.
No nation should understand the Russian military and Putin better than Israel. One out of every 8.5 Israelis is Russian born. There is no language confusion.
Tel Aviv knows what awaits if they keep poking the bear.
They rationalize that they are striking Iranians assets.
But their real goal now is to demonize the S-300 and S-400 systems by forcing a shoot-down of a civilian plane, and then crying wolf that Russian technology caused the disaster.
It didn’t work Christmas eve. (that timing is another outrageous component of Israeli action).
Excellent analysis, thanks, I needed that small reassurance, things are in hand.
Trump and Melania visited military personnel in Iraq on Christmas evening.
Put the Kurds on the front line. That is, all those that were supporting the US of Arrogance occupation. Then we’ll see how smart the rest can get in a short time.
How many times has Iran struck at ‘targets’ in Israel?
How many times has Syria struck at ‘targets’ in Israel?
How many times has Hezbollah struck at ‘targets’ in Israel?
Now compare your responses to:
How many times has Israel struck at Iranian, Syrian and Hezbollah ‘targets’?
And please ensure that you do not confuse defensive actions with offensive actions.
Therefore Syria responding to Israel violating its airspace or Syria trying to shoot down Israeli aircrafts and missiles targeting its infrastructure does not count.
If you factor in that last bit then Iran, Syria and Hezbollah have collectively, almost never initiated aggression against Israel.
Yeah I know that in 2006, Hezbollah’s decision to infiltrate Occupied Palestine and grab Israeli soldiers, was viewed as the trigger for that conflict – but aside from that, which other incident in recent times has seen the Axis of Resistance initiating aggression against Israel?
The answer is none. Not one single time.
Israel on the other hand – has by its own account – attacked Syria 100s of times in the last couple of years.
Yet amazingly, if you consume that garbage coming out of the MSM and Westetn capitals, you hear that Iran, Syria and Hezbollah are somehow the aggressors, and poor little Israel is only responding to terror.
I ask you, where is the justice in this f..king world?
Seems like its time for Lebanon to get its own S-300s, because its airspace is increasingly used by Israel to target Syria.
“Seems like its time for Lebanon to get its own S-300s, because its airspace is increasingly used by Israel to target Syria.”
Or, Syria/Russia could offer to do it for them.
Simply Lebanon needs their own antiaircraft missile system for self defense. That would put a bit of a crack in the armor of the aggressor. The sooner the better.
“Simply Lebanon needs their own antiaircraft missile system for self defense.”
I agree, Lebanon needs to be able to defend themselves from israeli air incursions. Effectively, Hizbulla needs this ability, since they are beyond the zionazi infiltration and divisive corruption opps. Hizbulla is Lebanon’s real defense against israel.
“I agree, Lebanon needs to be able to defend themselves from israeli air incursions.”
The Lebanese have complained to the UN. The Russians just might propose to the UN that the UN take over the responsibility of protecting Lebanon airspace!!
When the proposal gets rejected the Russians could offer to do it themselves.
Yes, but vot tak, Lebanon is not fully coherent as a state at this point in time – or so I believe. It is still fragmented in its ethos by different players with different allegiances. The political level is riven with division, I think – I haven’t studied this at all, but this is my impression from casual reading.
And this is why I think Russia has not pursued arming Lebanon. For now, the country is quite safe from land attack through Hezbollah. And Hezbollah is gaining ground in the nation, year by year.
One day, Realpolitik will assess that Lebanon embodies one whole will. Then it will rule its skies.
Grieved, I was thinking the same, to many wrong players, oh wait as you said it, they are not even a team. And, many of them in the position of power are serving the “other” side. This is why their army, sits in coffee shops watching the events on TV.
The lack of unity and corruption is why I qualified my view that Lebanon needs AD to Hizbulla should be so armed. I realize Russia doesn’t provide weaponry to non state entities, at least officially, so they would be unlikely to supply Hizbulla. Others might, though…
“Yes, but vot tak, Lebanon is not fully coherent as a state at this point in time ”
recently I read a long, interesting article in harper’s on the situation of Christians in the ME, esp. Iraq but also Syria and Lebanon. The title is “The Vanishing”; in the December 2018 issue.The author is Janine de Giovanni. She seems to be sympathetic to real people—not USA doctrinaire. She has traveled a great deal throughout Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria and visited many Christian sites and conducted interviews. She writes: “And the conflict has hd ripple effects reaching even Lebanon’s christian community. With as many as 1.5 million Syrian refugees there, the overwhelming majority of whom are Sunni Muslimes, the demographic balance of Christians and Muslims in the country—the basis for the long-standing power-sharing agreement—has begun to tilt, creating a sense of unease.”
I recall, at the very beginning of the Syria crisis—before there was an y real reporting going on—reading about the threat to ancient Christian communities in Syria as a result of “unrest.” Which is somewhat OT from the Lebanon point, but the refugee crisis resulting from the Syria conflict does seem to be destabilizing Lebanon, which may hamstring the country’s govt. in various ways.
ROTchilds ET AL own the Axis of Evil (EU, US, Israeli chosen/chosenites). There is not going to be an enlightenment in the “evildoers” who and whom have “decided”.
Iran (Persia) according to art history was the root of the first religious teaching system/s and law, too.

When the point of Feng Shui is reached then the Axis of Evil shall be an alchemy no doubt about the reality balance is reality.
On the surface it is reasonable to conjecture that the Israeli goal was to get Syrian/Russian air defenses to shoot down civilian airliners and then to have Assad pilloried in the Western Intel’s propaganda outlets to restart the war Wurlitzer in Syria…the timing is certainly appropriate for such a venture. I would think that preparatory crib sheets for media outlets may have been distributed for some Wikileak sleuths to uncover.
It looks like the Israelis failed this time out, not exactly a false flag, but the nerve gas story is getting a bit shopworn. Sadly, using civilian airline passengers as bait/sacrificial animals has a long well worn history in western intel circles, look for more of this.
I had the same sort of House of Cards level of thought. That this was an attempt by the war pigs to provide an excuse as to why the “Animal Assad” had to be attacked.
IIRC, one thing that has changed since the IL-20 incident is that the Russians now have command of an integrated Syrian air defense system. Thus the skill and knowledge to hold their fire and not give the war pigs their excuse. Besides, by now its pretty obvious that when the Israelis use a couple of planes to shoot a couple of loads of missiles at Damascus, they don’t really do much damage. Total sympathy to those who loved the three Syrian servicepeople who lost their lives, but at least by not shooting they didn’t give the war pigs their excuse to go back to full-tilt kill mode.
Now I’m going to have that Black Sabbath song in my head all dang. Dang those Israelis for causing that. Emergency, quick I need Jazz!
And a war machine keeps turning….
US military establishes 2 new bases along Syrian border – report
“The U.S. military has established two new bases along the Iraqi-Syrian border, the Turkish state-owned Anadolu Agency reported on Tuesday.
Citing an Iraqi official, the Anadolu Agency said the U.S. military established the two bases in the western countryside of the Al-Anbar.
“The U.S. Army has established two new military facilities in uninhabited parts of the province,” Farhan al-Duleimi, a member of Anbar’s provisional council, told Anadolu Agency.
The first base, he said, had been set up in the northern Rumana subdistrict (in Anbar’s Al-Qaim district) near the Syrian border, roughly 360 kilometers west of provincial capital Ramadi.
The second base, he added, had been set up east of the city of Al-Rutbah, roughly 310 kilometers west of Ramadi and less than 100 kilometers from the Syrian border.
“Scores of U.S. soldiers are currently stationed at the two bases, along with drones and other equipment,” al-Duleimi said without elaborating.”
No pullout of Iraq, it can be base ‘to do something in Syria’ – Trump on first visit to troops
“US President Donald Trump said he’s not planning to take American troops out of Iraq as he made his first visit to an active combat zone. His surprise trip also sparked online frenzy after his plane had been noticed over Europe.
Speaking at Al Asad Air Base west of Baghdad, Trump defended his decision to withdraw troops from Syria last week.
“I think a lot of people are going to come around to my way of thinking. It’s time for us to start using our head,” the president said.
“In fact we could use this as the base if we wanted to do something in Syria”
The terrorist recruitment and training in Syria drawing to a close, now time to move east towards massa israel’s main target. The troops the usa has in Syria are mainly engaged in training terrorists, and to a lesser degree, organising local and imported insurgents.
Syria and her allies have effectively neutralised most of that zionazi activity that could be used inside Syria. The americans/nato have essentially run out of rope in Dyria, now. So israel is having her pindo gofers move to Iraq to continue this hybrid war. They will continue to train and send in terrorists against Syria, but the majority of the new terrorist offensive is probably to be directed against Iran and keeping Iraq from stabilising.
This further confirms my view that the zionnazis are not scaling back their american quisling involvement in the Mideast/Western Asia, but instead moving to the next planned stage in their strategy.
Trump didn’t meet Iraqi leadership during surprise visit due to ‘disagreements’
“A meeting between US President Donald Trump, who made a surprise visit to Iraq, and the country’s leadership has been scrapped, after the sides failed to agree on how and where to organize the talks.
“A disagreement over how to conduct the meeting led to the meeting being replaced by a telephone conversation,” said a statement from the Iraqi PM’s office.”
There was no intention of having zio-gofer trump meet the Iraqi government, the zionazis consider this government, especially the newly elected Iran friendly elements, to be the enemy. Given trump is an ego without much of a brain who talks too much, he could mess things up while pounding his chest and making trump noises.
Iraq is looking like it could be stabilized, israel does not approve. Especially since the stabilising factors are well beyond their control. Syria is essentially lost for now. Moving east, rather than attempting to dig a deeper hole in Syria makes better strategic sense.
” next planned stage in their strategy”
The strategy is to balkanize the region. With the SDF regime ensconced in NE Syria, the next part of the plan will soon unfold. Turkey and Iran are also earmarked for partitioning (see the usual Oded Yinon and New Middle East plans); and Iraq is barely holding onto its integrity. Nasty times ahead.
Since Syria is being attacked from Lebanese airspace, and the Lebanese are not able to do much about it, the Russians might just make an agreement with the Lebanese to declare any plane flying in Lebanese airspace without permission to be considered hostile and allow them to be shot down by Russia/Syria.
This would fit the slow and steady ratcheting up of actions to reduce Israeli options in the area.
Waiting for a Russia/Syria move that will have the Israelis screaming in impotent rage but unable to do much about it since they brought it upon themselves.
wasn’t Lebanon part of Syria until about 70 years ago? I think that’s what a friend whose grandfather used to be a Minister of Justice once told me. It was French who basically stole a part of Syria to create their puppet state?
The Israelis will continue their attacks with impunity as they always manage to get away with their cowardly, deceptive tactics. Never count on any US acknowledgement of Israeli’s ongoing warfare in the ME as they are the ones supporting Israel blindly. A pity that Russia is not strong enough to actually retaliate together with Syria, so it will be continued and Israel has got away with lies and deceit for decades and are still winning: their black propaganda, ever since WWII also stuck forever. They made sure no forensic research was ever done for decades that showed their lies about the camps and the research done since exposes the lies but the Israelis won: nobody cared or was too afraid of daring to believe the new scientifically based research.
The same is true for 9/11: false flags were placed and they win and none dares to doubt their lies, so they are expert at it.
Maybe one day a similar tactic can be used against them and a major drama in Israel might teach them something. The Zionists still rule the world and enjoyed great profits from wars.
Organ theft, staged attacks: UN panel details White Helmets’ criminal activities, media yawns
“Utter silence. That is the sound of Western corporate media days after a more than one-hour-long panel on the White Helmets at the United Nations on December 20.
Journalists were present, so the silence isn’t due to lack of access. And in any case it was live streamed on the UNTV channel, and remains available on Youtube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thxkhGqTdPg&fbclid=IwAR2oKljqjpr8wb8NTrOELhKG-MQyLskTGVHqsAQV4JKSMIneAvENIEqfiUk ) for keen observers to watch.
More likely, the silence is due to the irrefutable documentation presented on the faux-rescue group’s involvement in criminal activities, which include organ theft, working with terrorists — including as snipers — staging fake rescues, thieving from civilians, and other non-rescuer behaviour.
The testimonies incriminate not only the White Helmets organization, but also the doctors who, in 2016, Western corporate media fawned over.
Four days after the UN panel, to my knowledge, not a single corporate media outlet has covered the event and its critical contents.
Russian, Syrian, and Lebanese media did report on the panel, and of course if Western corporate journalists ever do bother to mention it, they will ignore the incriminating evidence presented by panellists and instead accuse Russia of bullying the White Helmets.
Why haven’t the media written about the panel, or as per the corporate media norm, issued yet more smears against panellists?
They haven’t because they are cornered, and while they can always try their standard juvenile character smears and libel, they cannot refute the facts, the countless testimonies which corroborate yet still more testimonies taken by independent journalists over the years.
Or as Ambassador Nebenzia said:
“We understand why #WhiteHelmets are being defended by #Western capitals. They do not hide that they provided substantial financial support to this organization and instrumentalized it to pursue political goals under humanitarian cover. It’s logical to protect your asset.”
Military Review – News
US media told about the Israeli missile attack on the air defense complexes of Syria
on December 27, 2018 06:45 am local time
The American news agency The Associated Press publishes some details about an Israeli air strike
on the territory of the Syrian province of Damascus. AP, referring to the sources, writes that the strike
was indeed inflicted by Israeli military aircraft from Lebanese airspace.
It is noted that the Israeli F-16 attacked the objects of the Hezbollah group. About this on the eve of
writing and the Israeli media. In addition, the United States reported that Israeli warplanes attempted
to attack the Syrian air defense weapons, which carried out counter-attack with the Israel Air Force
missile and bomb attacks.
On the Syrian air defense systems were launched several cruise missiles “Delilah” (“Delilah-AL”).
Primarily, these missiles were used to disable the radar stations of the armed forces of Syria. In the
Syrian sources on the eve it was stated that the Delilah-AL missiles were intercepted by anti-aircraft
missile (missile-gun) complexes that are in service with the CAA.
It is worth noting that Israeli aviation clearly attempted to take advantage of the situation in which
Syrian calculations were forced to limit the use of EW funds. This was told by the official representa-
tive of the Ministry of Defense of Russia Igor Konashenkov. According to General Konashenkov, it
was necessary to limit the operation of EW CAA systems due to the fact that at the time of the Israeli
attacks on objects in Syria, civilian airliners were to land at Damascus and Beirut (Lebanon) airports.
One of the dispatchers had to be taken to the alternate Khmeimim airfield.
The Defense Ministry accused Israel of provocation, as a result of which a tragedy could happen with
civilian sides. Does this mean that Israeli aircraft now decided to use civilian airliners as a cover for their attacks on the territory of a sovereign state – on the same principle as it did with the IL-20 aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Force?
Maybe this attack was just a feeble show.
Israel is heading for new elections, they need a ‘success’ for the general public after humiliating silence following the IL-20 downing and installation of S-300 systems in Syria.
Just like the Tomahawk raid of Trump, costing some 80-90 million $, inflicting some 1-2 million $ of damage. Americans were cheering about the ‘power’ shown, bombing brown people who were called disobedient.
Israel desperately wants to show that they are still the meanest bullies in the yard.
Now, can this backfire?
Just compare to the brutal show-off of March this year: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/israel-lebanon-jet-beirut-stealth-plane-photo-f35-a8373066.html
Would they dare to do that also over the present air defenses in Syria? I highly doubt that, and there might be the cracker.
It is common known even to the general public, that the F-35 has a budget out of control, and a sharknado of unbelievable technical problems. Now, just imagine that F-35’s are downed with capable, but not the latest state-of-the-art air defense systems. It would be a disaster for the US MIC, desperately trying to sell this plane to its vassals (let’s keep in mind that roughly a third of US workers work directly or indirectly for the military).
Using civilian cover? Maybe not so stealth after all (the stealth capabilities, lesser known, grow useless when confronted with mean opponents like ‘sand’ and ‘rain’).
What would the Israeli public think, when the IDF still relies on 1970s F-16’s, and they have F-35 ‘hangar queens’ not deployed for fear of being shot down? Well, then they are not really the meanest bully in the yard anymore, are they?
(This might even be dangerous – they are a nuclear armed nation and I don’t trust on their reluctance).
And what would potential buyers of F-35’s think about this? Also -less common known- the Patriot air defense systems have a low yield. The Saudis needed multiple launches to shoot vintage Houthi rockets out of the air.
Add to that, in 2020 the JCPOA embargo against Iran about importing conventional weapons will end. I don’t think Iran will be knocking on the USA door, others might follow.
Interesting but very dangerous times indeed.
Cunningham is presenting a similar line of thought to my speculation above ( http://thesaker.is/israel-strikes-syria-s-300-is-not-employed/#comment-598274 ).
Trump comes clean… from world’s policeman to thug running a global protection racket
“Hinting at private discussions with commanders in Iraq, Trump boasted that US forces would in the future launch attacks from there into Syria if and when needed. Presumably that rapid force deployment would apply to other countries in the region, including Afghanistan.
Inadvertently, Trump is showing up US power for what it really is: a global thug running a protection racket.
It’s always been the case. Except now it’s in your face. Trump is no Smedley Butler, the former Marine general who in the 1930s condemned US militarism as a Mafia operation. This president is stupidly revealing the racket, while still thinking it is something virtuous.”
The American “withdrawal” of official US occupation troops (as opposed to unofficial occupation troops like US mercenaries) from Syria was only a tactical redeployment rather than a rejection of American imperial aims in the Middle East.
The article below anticipated that this US withdrawal would actually facilitate Israel attacks on Syria before Israeli’s recent Christmas Day bombing.
The regime of Donald “Jerusalem is the capital of Israel” Trump is not about to go against their Zionist masters; indeed, they are actually facilitating Israeli aggression with this fake withdrawal from Syria.
“US Withdrawal from Syria Paves Way for Israeli Strikes”
Chomsky Among “Progressives” Calling for US Military Involvement in Syria
“On Monday, the New York Review of Books published an open letter and petition aimed at securing Western support for putting pressure on Turkey to end its occupation of Afrin, opposing further Turkish incursions into Syria, and backing autonomy for Rojava — the region of Northern Syria that has functioned autonomously since 2012 after its administration was taken over by U.S-allied Kurdish factions. Authored by the Emergency Committee for Rojava, it has since been signed by well-known progressive figures such as Noam Chomsky and Judith Butler in its bid to organize efforts for the fulfillment of the group’s demands.
In effect, by asking for the continuation of U.S. military presence in Syria in order to aid the SDF, the Emergency Committee for Rojava is actually undermining the “progressive” Kurds they seek to support — and aiding yet another U.S. government attempt at nation-building, which is likely to result in a Wahhabist enclave that would differ little from a Daesh-led “caliphate.”
The Emergency Committee for Rojava’s efforts come amid major attempts aimed at defending and extending the U.S.’ illegal involvement in Syria. However, this petition is aimed at Western progressives, the group that has historically opposed illegal U.S. military occupations and wars in the past. Given how it has enticed well-known members of the progressive community, the petition shows that the push for Western “humanitarian” intervention in Syria is stronger than ever.”
While some of these “leftists” and “progressives” may be supporting the israeloamerican/nato occupation of Syria because they naively and stupidly believe the zionazi-gay lies, many, if not most, are showing their true colours again. The zpc/nwo wars against Yugoslavia and Libya had strong support among these duplitious/stupid clowns. To a lesser degree, all the zpc/nwo wars from the late 70s on have been flooded with this sort of propaganda, as well, designed to entice leftists and progressives away from anti-war views and towards the aggression zionazi, inc. inflicts upon this planet.
Regardless whether these pundits are backing zionazi-gay aggression out of stealth zionazi duplicity or they are simply stupid, I hope people eill see through this nonsense and dismiss them as a toxic/surplus influence in the future. It is these people who have destroyed the left in the west by subverting it from within.
Interesting, and then to realize that many of those older ‘liberals’ were against the war in Vietnam.
I don’t believe for a bit this US troops removal. They will be redeployed and/or replaced by Blackwater mercs. And maybe the Israeli’s are given a more free hand in handling Syria. Well, they already tried. I don’t think Sergei Shoigu is clinching his fists in utter despair, and Hezbollah is grinning awaiting them.
It all boils down to different ‘projects’, let me phrase two famous contemporary philosophers on this:
‘Anything will be accepted, because it’s all part of the plan’ [The Joker]
‘Everybody has a plan, until they get punched in the face’ [Mike Tyson]
Plan 1, ‘New Middle East’ from 2006, introduced by Condoleezza Rice: https://www.globalresearch.ca/plans-for-redrawing-the-middle-east-the-project-for-a-new-middle-east/3882 . Recognize the Isis caliphate? All for securing pipelines, breaking the Shia crescent, and sneakily creating a landline to the south border of Russia. Somehow I tend to think that Israel, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia might not agree.
Plan 2, ‘Neo-Ottomanism’, the strive of the AK party of Erdogan to re-create the Ottoman Empire: https://www.quora.com/Is-Erdogan-trying-to-revive-the-Ottoman-Empire . Everyone but Turkey will oppose this. But they might try anyway.
Plan 3, ‘Greater Israel’: https://www.globalresearch.ca/greater-israel-the-zionist-plan-for-the-middle-east/5324815 . The strive to re-impose Biblical borders of the kingdom of David. Deeply embedded in the Israeli soul. Now, the exact borders are unclear, the Old Testament is seen here as a history book (which it is definitely not), and some 90% of Israeli Jews have no historical and even genetic connection to the former tribe of Judah.
All these plans collide with each other, don’t they? So, I expect a quagmire in this region for years to come, supported by the most idiot BS propaganda in the media. And most people will even believe it, so occupied with keeping up with the Kardashians.
“It is these people who have destroyed the left in the west by subverting it from within.”
Absolutely. I think maybe the left was so traumatized by the Nixon, then Bush and Reagan administrations, that they were willing to hand over just about every commitment and ideal just to get a supposed Dem into the White House. The clintons wreaked havoc on the world, and on the Dem party, and on many of its traditional constituents (working class; unions; the poor; blacks).
Same deal after Bush II—so relieved to get a Dem in power that they didn’t pay attention to the actual reality and gave Obama a pass to play footsie with Wall Street (of course with major influence still emanating from the Clinton camp). More internal wreckage as no leftists dared criticize Obama as the first black president and the “cure” after Bush II. The Dem party became an even more of a militaristic, interventionist locus, althouigh it was made more palatable by Obama’s “grace.”
The party might have had a chance to regain some of its traditional territory, and moral legitimacy, if the Dems had not fielded the horrible Clinton Redux zombie phoenix. If Hillary had won, it would have been the same dynamic with her as with the black Obama, that is, no women would have dared utter a critical word about the first female president. But in the end it didn’t matter because the actual effect was the inverse: No positive word allowed regarding any single thing that Trump does, and continual dumping on him, on his wife, etc. since Nov. 2016, and no criticism allowed of Hillary, nor any close looks into her campaign shenanigans. .
Trump Derangement Syndrome, with its knee-jerk opposition to any and every thing Trump does or says, is actually a new variety of Stockholm Syndrome.
This SS/TDS seems to have morphed into collective amnesia on the left, as progressives” actually make common cause with their traditional enemies and adversaries and hail these as the “adults in the room.” The “adults” must be laughing laughing laughing.
I have immense respect for Chomsky, but he is not God! He has missed the boat on 9/11. Perhaps as a Jew he cannot let himself look more closely there. Now, to advocate for continued US illegal presence in Syria—I am really dumbfounded. I can only attribute it to advanced age, and Trump Derangement Syndrome. But surely Chomsky reads the writings of someone like Stephen Cohen. His piercing intellect burned through many an earlier excuse for US interventions.
Through Trump Derangement Syndrome the left has actively contributed to its own destruction from within. . It is an ongoing tragedy of huge significance for the future of the USA and the world. And, for those of us who consider ourselves any version of liberal-leftist-progressive, this leaves really nowhere to go, politically. Those who see what is going on are, i think, starting to drift to the right when it comes to mainly foreign policy, but not mainly domestic. I listen to my “progressive” friends and also read t heir emails and I know that they are so sure of their positions and the terribleness of Trump etc. that it is totally pointless to say: But . . . you are making the whole situation a whole lot *worse* and a whole lot more *dangerous.”.
“ The Jews are an incurably bad people, a people always seeking its own benefits and wanting to enslave the world, a people which in spite of all its efforts to assimilate, still remains strange and hostile to the non- Jews. The *** is the torchbearer of capitalism, exploitation, usury, and suppression. At the same time, he is also the yeast of history, upsetting and destroying all that is stable, the troublemaker incarnate. In short, the Jewish people is the curse of humanity.”
Nahman Syrkin 1898, In: The Zionist Idea, pg 337
Jews in this case are quite likely scapegoats for Anglo-Americans, after all, Israel was created by the British and now propped up by the USA.Playing a role for the Anglo-imperialists, not too different from the Kurds.
“and now propped up by the USA.Playing a role for the Anglo-imperialists, not too different from the Kurds.”
Yes, definitely, in the usa there is the america kurdish public affairs committee, along with all those literally 100s of other kurdish influence groups dominating american politics. In the uk, there are the kurdish friends of the conservative and labor parties, among many others.
In american and brit media, it is well known how kurds dominate. And don’t get me started on the financial institutions, oy vey…
“those “other guys did the nasty deed, we be innocent, m’ lord”.
Lol. The Eternal Kurds.
The Kurds could be playing a similar role to Jews, locally, in relation to their foreign handlers—namely, as proxies of some kind or tool or pawn— even if they don’t have the same international profile.
Of course with the Zionists, unlike with the Kurds, it is an open question who is the handler and who is the pawn.
Recent Airstrike in Syria Shows Israelis Are Changing Tactics
“Israel’s recent airstrike against Syria, which involved the usage of civilian flights as cover for the operation, shows that the Israelis are changing their tactics against Damascus, Peter Ford, the former UK ambassador to Syria, told Sputnik.
Israel’s new tactics were detailed in a Wednesday statement by the Russian Defense Ministry, which indicated that six Israeli F-16 fighter jets used two commercial aircraft as cover that were preparing to land in Damascus and Beirut, respectively.
”It shows a new modus operandi that the Israelis are no longer [as] fearless as they were of their planes being brought down,” Ford told Sputnik Radio’s Loud and Clear on Thursday.
“Because, thanks to the Russians, the Syrian Army now has improved anti-aircraft defenses, therefore the Israelis are using new tactics, and it appears one of these is to hide behind other aircraft.”
As Ford notes, this wasn’t the first time that Israel has used such measures to initiate its strikes on neighboring Syria…
Considering both operations, Ford told hosts Brian Becker and John Kiriakou that new rules of engagement were coming into play for Russia as a consequence of Israel’s misstep. “They have effectively taken their Syrian partners off the leash and are saying to the Israelis that the ‘Syrians, if they can manage it, will take down your aircrafts. Don’t look to us for any kind of protections,'” he said.”
Not so much as “taking them off the leash”, as providing Syria with a more effective AD.
The israeli attack may indicate a change in tactics, but also I believe it was a deliberate attempt to get an airliner accidentally shot down by the Syrians for the zionazi-gay psywar machine. Perhaps to use as a pretext to rejuvenate their failing war against Syria. It’s their usual MO.
I believe the israelis deliberately worked to get Syrian AD to mistakenly hit the Russian aircraft earlier, and that was the whole purpose of running that attack. This recent israeli attack likewise was to get an airliner downed in the same manner.
