A spokesperson for Russia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced that “After today’s attack on the Syrian army, we come to the terrible conclusion that the White House is defending ISIS”.

This startling revelation has come after United States airstrikes killed at least 80 Syrian soldiers hours ago.

Meanwhile journalist Hala Jabar has highlighted that US claims that they have targeted this area before is false as the Syrian Armt has remained consistently in control of it.

The boys in Tel-Aviv were ROFL when they discovered about the arab propaganda about the supposed “greater Israel” project… Guess why… No?
It’s easy : there are less inhabitants in Israel than in NYC! Only 9 millions including 2 millions arab israelis. What would they do with a so huge area with about +100 millions arab muslims who hate them because of a fairy-tales book?
They couldn’t even grow jew children by making harems with arab women : to be jew is only feasible if your mother is already jew…

But wasn’t Israel’s population only half that 30 years ago? Israel’s population is on the upswing and they keep taking over more and more Palestinians’ land, building more and more settlements.

Its not Palestinian land either, there never was a Palestine except as a geographic designator, the name derived from ancient Roman renaming the land after AD 70. It was Jordanian land.

There is almost no country in existence now that does not have land which it acquired by conquest. Jordan itself was established by the British out of Ottoman Empire land which was taken by conquest. Ottoman had what it had by conquest. etc. etc.

greater Israel is absurd, but not true you can only be Jew through the mother. conversion counts and raised in the faith counts, which would include adopted kids. Greater Israel is absurd however for many reasons not the least being that it depends on a religious view while Israel is heavily secular. It is also tactically untenable. The Orthodox view is that a state of Israel is presumptuous only the Messiah should establish this (and greater Israel), but they have to deal with the fact it exists.

I don’t trust the US too but… It makes too much the day for russian propaganda and frankly, VKS (RuAF) striked SAA near Aleppo about 2 months ago, nobody accused them of switching sides. When KSA-AF does bomb a marketplace, school or a MSF field hospital with a giant red cross on the roof, it’s clearly deliberate. Now, if you intervene on a battlefield, things are much more complicated than when you target a building : the 1st time I flew, it was in a sailplane launched by a cable (this is too cool!

Esa es la Tesis aprobado, preguntas: EE.UU. cuando bombardea supuestamente a ISIS nunca causa daños significativos, ya antes había lanzado armas a ISIS aduciendo que era un error, pero vemos ahora el bombardeo al ejercito Sirio a sido efectivo con mas de 100 muertos, demostrado la doble moral de EE.UU. y la ONU como siempre guarda silencio cómplice por que obedece a los EE.UU… Rusia ya no debe negociar con EE.UU. tiene que buscar alianzas con otros países que de verdad quieren liberar al sufrido pueblo de Siria.

The fundamental obstacle overall is the lack of commitment to a unified objective of democracy inclusive of all people. The government in Damascus is currently the primary obstacle to a democracy inclusive of all people. Damascus is the most susceptible to leverage. ISIS is the most susceptible to destruction.

Personally, no disrespect intended, however, I absolutely reject the idea of a divided Syria. One fundamental reason for this is that, world wide, we must accept the reality of diversity, and find a means by which we can accommodate the reality of diversity, and the realities of the the world, as one people.

However, I do support the idea of states within Syria, with their own state assemblies, integrating to form a national assembly, which can have a very similar effect, while also establishing unity as one nation, and without compromising the national borders of Syria.

In regard to Palestine, I support the integration of the Palestinian territories with Israel, and the unification of both people, as one nation. The constitution of Israel can be amended to include Israel as also the homeland of the Palestinians, and I would add “of all people” as well, as a symbol of unity, because, in my opinion, we are all people of God. The ‘right of return’ for Jews and for Palestinians would essentially fall into the same category … the category of ‘immigration’.
