Keeping in mind the FACT that Israel has been in cahoots with the NATO/Israeli mercenaries since they were first being marketed under the brand FSA. Then when brand FSA allegedly fell apart or simply regrouped under it's new brand Al Nusra or whatever other brand name these fighters are going by Israel kept right on supporting them. Nothing changed but the name. The agenda stayed exactly the same
BUT NOW...... I shudder (not really, more a chuckle at the nonsense spewed) and apparently so does Israel as the FSA which became Al Nusra or Nusra Front or whatever other brand was being tossed around, an affiliate of Al Qaeda, has now morphed into ISIS!!! It's the same fighters- They are just changing names- And swearing loyalty! I suspect the marketing for any moves made by Israel is about to change. Now Israel is going to have to fight the great ISIS- Booga booga.
I managed to get the full Haaretz article via this link
For the first time since the Syrian civil war began in early 2011, Islamic State (also known as ISIS or ISIL) has gained a presence near the border with Israel on the Golan Heights.
According to Arab media reports, three local jihadist groups that were fighting against the Assad regime in the southern Golan swore fealty this week to ISIS and its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Until now, ISIS had no presence near the border with Israel, though other rebel groups did. Over the past few months, the rebels have pushed Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces out of most of the area near Israel, and today they control about 90 percent of the border region – from the point where Israel, Syria and Jordan all meet in the south to a few kilometers beyond the Quneitra border crossing in the north. Assad’s forces control only the area around Mount Hermon and the Hader enclave south of the Hermon, which contains several Druze villages.
The rebel forces controlling the border comprise a loose coalition of numerous groups, including the Nusra Front, which is affiliated with Al-Qaida; the Free Syrian Army; and several other militias, both Islamist and secular. As Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon confirmed in an interview with Haaretz in October, Israel maintains low-profile ties with the more moderate rebel groups and provides medical treatment in its hospitals to residents of the area under their control. Ya’alon added that “this happens on condition that [these militias] don’t allow the more radical groups to reach the border.”
But now, a new player, the most radical of all, appears to have entered the picture. According to Arab media reports, three small Islamist factions – Shuhada al-Yarmouk, the Abu Mohammed al-Tilawi Brigades and Bayt al-Maqdis – announced earlier this week that they are transferring their allegiance to ISIS.
So these three small factions (underlined) must be three of the several militias mentioned in the paragraph above (highlighted in yellow) that were already cooperating with Israel- but now they have rebranded themselves....
As they always have- reread:
The largest of the three, Shuhada al-Yarmouk, comprises a few hundred armed men, while the other two contain only several dozen each. All three are concentrated around Daraa, the town in southern Syria where the rebellion against Assad began. Daraa is several dozen kilometers from the Israeli border, but some of the newly minted ISIS fighters hold positions just a few kilometers away from the border.
" rebels have pushed Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces out of most of the area near Israel, and today they control about 90 percent of the border region – from the point where Israel, Syria and Jordan all meet in the south to a few kilometers beyond the Quneitra border"
Map of Syria:
See where Israel, Jordan, Syria meet? - See Daara ? (Dar'a) See Quneitra? (Al qunaytirah) Same area Israel's Islamist fighters have been holed up- Same place as ISIS is now, because of the rebrand!- Nothing has changed except the spin!
In November, something similar happened in Sinai, when the largest Islamist group operating in the peninsula, Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis, also swore fealty to ISIS, just a year and a half after having been recognized as the Sinai branch of Al-Qaida. Experts in global jihad organizations say these organizations are transferring their allegiance from Al-Qaida to ISIS because the latter is seen as the rising power. It is becoming increasingly popular, with numerous operatives and sympathizers, and it also has enormous wealth that can be shared with its new loyalists, thanks to the oil fields it controls in northern Iraq and eastern Syria.So all these so called terrorists have so far targeted only Syria & Egypt, but not Israel, however with this rebrand and a fresh new sales campaign Israel can justify attacking both Syria and Egypt- It's win/win for Israel's land grabbing agenda
Though Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis’ primary target is the Egyptian government, it has also attacked Israel on occasion. The most noteworthy one occurred in August 2011, when its operatives infiltrated Israel and killed six civilians and two members of the security forces at Ein Netafim, north of Eilat.
On the Syrian border, in contrast, jihadist groups have so far made no real attempt to attack Israel. But even though Israel isn’t currently high on these groups’ priority list, focused as they are on their war against the Syrian army and Hezbollah, the intelligence community believes they might try to attack Israel as well. Given this, the new declaration of loyalty to ISIS is considered a worrying development that must be monitored closely.
Sadly too many people are going to be taken in by this ruse, not realizing it's been the same fighters backed by Israel all along and assisting the Israel agenda
So now you understand my disgust at the VICE nonsense? Is the IDF checking the ID of those fighters they aid? They don't have to. They know each and everyone of them is their boy!
