“Withdrawal of the super powers from the region and letting Israel alone in front of Hezbollah and Iran that possess good abilities Will make “Israel” in a hard position” . Therefore, we’ve to do all we can so as not finding ourselves in such situation”, the Israeli chief intelligence added.

  1. It wasnt so hard to understand that ISIS largly commanded by Mussad. They have the best fighting tactics then all other rebels in Syria – USA just doesnt have such a commanders – you can see this in all their wars from Vietnam and Korea to Afganistan Iraq and Syria. AAAnd if ISIS was a trully real rebelian of the muslim agains all infidels , will Israely stay so quit in the corner or was going to make rocket rain every signle day untill the defeat, like they did in the ocupied territories of Palestine….

    • You were misleaded by a bad translation : looks to the corrected one by the guy from Tel-Aviv 😉
      Errr, sorry, but this is Nusra that has the most efficient tactics if you consider rebels. IS? Just look at the Iraq-Iran war and you’ll know from where their tactics came… Typical al-Douri’s strategy, even the trenches like in 14-18.
      Sorry to contradict you again but US generals are extremely efficients : have a little more learning about what you consider defeats and you will see that the US militaries weren’t defeated at all. Politics is something else.
      “AAAnd if ISIS was a trully real rebelian of the muslim agains all infidels , will Israely stay so quit in the corner” => They bombed IS yesterday for the 1st time… But those daeshbags are at their border.
      If you had red Q’ran and Haddith, you couldn’t avoid to notice that they REALLY follow the book… Even the mass slaughters, taking sex slaves, etc etc… Even their flag is a copy of the one Muham’s army used!
      Rocket rains from Israel? Could you point me to these events? Maybe you don’t know but put the 48 M270 MLRS Israel has together and each salvo will just erase 16km² so, in less than 24h, the 3655km² of the West Bank…

    • You understand then that there is a possibility of the same thing happening to Israel that was done to Syria. If Iran, hezbollah and Iran wanted it, they could create their own proxies coming from Lebanon and Egypt and destabilize Israeli security. You know that Arabs are just waiting for a chance to attack Israel.
      Instead, Israel should stop playing games, work on it’s human rights record, get rid of that wall and remove all illegal settlements (not to mention withdrawal from Golan).
      As a citizen of Tel Aviv, do you want perpetual instability and fear of terror? I don’t think anyone wants it. Pressure your government to provide a safe environment for all Israelis and Palestinians.

      • There would be a huge difference is s.o. intended a proxy-war with Israel : Israel would go against the remote attacker directly.
        For the chance to attack Israel, well, if the badly engaged situation in Kippour’s war didn’t turned to their advantag, as Israel was very very near to be overwhealmed, you’d have seen the first and second live-test of an anti-city thermonuclear weapon on Cairo and Damascus and the firsts uses of battlefield nuclear tactical weapons…
        Thus, they have another solution, which would be very dirty but simply pushing every non israeli outside of west bank and Gaza as the israelian far-right wants and if Hamas and Hizbullah go on formenting attacks on Israel, this is likely to happen soon up or later : last elections propelled several far-righters into Bibi’s govt…
        It’s no surprise to me that Bibi’s befriending Putin and I bet he’ll soon get closer to India and China : if he takes such move, it could produce an embargo against Israel from western countries…

    • He said he doesn’t want ISIS defeated, but he didn’t say it? You quote him saying it then you said he did not say it, is he perhaps a she? (that would explain your conundrum)

      • He said he doesn’t want that the war in Syria will end after ISIS’ defeat,, he wants to prevent Syria from turning into an Iranian base on the border of Israel. He implyed that ISIS is not the only problem to solve in Syria.

  2. The dope really means if ISIS is defeated that means if we dont get in behind a peace settlement we will get overrun by Hezy and Co.His whole statement is so compromised its ludicrous. Fancy not only associated himself with a brutal terrorist organisation but supported it with medical aid and special forces. Only because they are fighting his war time enemies NOT peace enemies they dont exist so who’s the idiot! it seems radical Israeli’s are. US cant go on printing billions in toilet paper to prop up a violent Fascist regime.

  3. Israeli authorities are saying publicly what U.S. authorities believe privately. The whole “fight” against ISIS is largely phony because ISIS is a project of the CIA plus Turkish, Israeli and other intel organizations just as Al-quaida was a product of a similar alliance of intel services. Doesn’t mean ISIS does not have its own interests that may not accord with the CIA but it’s closer to the West than the Syrian government. Washington WANTS chaos in the region and that has been a consistent policy for some time.

  4. In reading the comments that have been, I wonder as an observation and not a criticism when we shall get pass the “conspiracy” theories when looking at Syria or aspects of political strife, turmoil and the reality of what is the Middle East. Confusion has reigned in the region since the Ottoman Empire was arbitrarily divided along boundaries that paid little or no attention to the consequences that would follow. Is it really that hard to believe why Israel’s intelligence made the statements that he made. Everyone is trying to avoid having to deal with the “nine hundred pound” gorilla i.e., Iran that is sitting in the corner. Very, very subtly the power equation has changed in the Mideast. The IDF is still an extremely formidable weapon, no doubt…but Iran’s Revolutionary Guard is no slouch either as it is not the rag-tag but committed force that suffered so heavily during the Iran-Iraq war. It is well trained and just as committed as it was during the Iran-Iraq war, perhaps more so. However, the chances, at least right now, of the type of warfare that characterized the wars fought between Israel and its Arab neighbors, are slim and none as logistics and distance cancel out such actions taking place without engulfing the entire region.

    Moreover, Israel’s ability to hit Iran with impunity from the air may have been significantly negated with Iran taking delivery of Russia’s very effective and capable S-300 long range air defence system. Israeli jets hit Iraq’s Osiris reactor after having obtained permission to cross through Saudi airspace. Would it be so forthcoming in today’s political climate vis-a-vis Israel if the Israeli political and military high command felt it was in “their” best interest to hit Iran’s nuclear facilities as the attack could and would not be limited to Iran’s nuclear facilities. While Israel has Iron Dome seemingly over saturation could take place within the context of the short range and immediate range missiles that Iran’s military has at it disposal so, in this regard, Israel faces a threat with which it has yet had to confront.

    At some point and time, ISIS’s will be defeated. The question that begs to be answered is ‘what will the defeat of ISIS mean as it regards the strategic and tactical balance in the region? At present, all we can do is quest. However, it could make for some interesting discussions. We should never forget that the “enemy of my enemy” can become my friend, depending upon the circumstances. Saudi Arabia and the GCC do not wish to see ISIS being defeated if it means I ran being able to boast of the role in played in ISIS’s defeat coming about. The reality is that Iran no longer can be ignored as it is force to be reckon with in the gulf region. ISIS at best is a distraction no matter who was involved in its creation. Objectively, I cannot argue with Israel’s intelligence chief’s assessment as Hizballah, Iran along with Russia have played a major role in Bashr Assad being able to survive.

    Needless to say let us stayed tuned and see how things unfold. No doubt the best is yet to come.
