Alexander Prokhanov: Mossad training ISIS.
On Sunday, December 7, Israel reportedly bombed Syria, yet again, this time striking the area near the Damascus international airport and the town of Dimas, close to the border with Lebanon. While the U.S. continues to bomb Syria under the shaky pretense of "fighting ISIS" (while supporting 'rebels' who ally themselves with ISIS in order to bring down Assad, which is what the U.S. really wants to do), Israel forgoes all that liberal 'bleeding heart' pretense and simply gets down to business: targeting locations under Syrian military control, and which involve supplies and food for the Syrian population that really needs them. But that's not all they're up to (more on that below).

Israel must be having a good laugh at the U.S. -- when Bibi and his merry bunch of war trolls want to bomb Syrian civilian and military infrastructure, they just do it, world opinion be damned. For the pansies in the U.S., it's always a 'mistake' -- they really meant to target the 'terrorists'. Grow a spine, guys, and drop the Columbo routine! No one takes a bumbling superpower seriously these days. If you really want to strike fear into the hearts of your enemies, honesty is the best policy. Just tell them: do what we say or we will unleash our trained terrorists on you. Or we'll blackmail you. Or we'll stage a coup in your country, and have you killed in the streets. Or we'll just bomb your country until you submit. That's the way Israel rolls. So take notes, America! Don't be afraid to show the world your true self.

Speaking of truth-telling, Russia has been doing a lot of that lately, and Assad himself too. He recently gave an interview to the French magazine Paris Match (you can read it in full here), in which he called the U.S. airstrikes in his country an illegal intervention that violates Syria's sovereignty (d'uh!). He also shared his thoughts on the origins of ISIS, and the efficacy of the U.S. 'war on ISIS':
"Let's be honest: had Qatar not paid money to those terrorists at that time, and had Turkey not supported them logistically, and had not the West supported them politically, things would have been different." Assad said.

He explained that currently Syria is fighting against "not only gangs", but also states that support them with "billions of dollars."

"The truth is that ISIS was created in Iraq in 2006. It was the United States which occupied Iraq, not Syria. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi [IS leader] was in American prisons, not in Syrian prisons. So, who created ISIS, Syria or the United States?"

Terrorism is an ideology which twenty years ago was exported to the West from Sunni Gulf states such as Saudi Arabia, Assad stated. He believes that the process has reversed with terrorists coming to the Middle East from Europe and "especially France".

Syria's president criticized the air strikes conducted by the US-led coalition targeting the militants in Syria saying that there strikes are "merely cosmetic" and "terrorism cannot be destroyed from the air."

"That's why, and after two months of the alliance's airstrikes, there are no tangible results on the ground in that direction," he said. "And that's why saying that the alliance's airstrikes are helping us is not true."
Assad's advisor Bouthaina Shaaban later told RT:
IS militants - formerly ISIS, also known by the Arabic acronym Daʿish - have "covert international support that enables it to transfer weapons and give financial aid to terrorists," Shaaban admitted.

High-level experts work for these terrorists, she stated, questioning from where they came.

"Therefore, in dealing with IS militants we will rely on our own capabilities, a new coalition that is being created between Russia, Syria, and countries" that stick to their statements and promises.

"At the same time, the West, in my personal opinion, pursues other objectives, participating in the [US-led] coalition. The West, above all, is trying to save the US military industry, attracting finances of the Gulf Arab countries in order to save relevant US companies," she said.
One of those objectives is to topple Assad. But besides the obvious hand of Washington and Brussels behind ISIS, where specifically is ISIS getting its 'covert international support'? Two recent reports may provide the answer.

First, Haaretz recently reported that UN observers in the disputed Syrian Golan Heights submitted reports of "regular contact" between the IDF forces stationed there and armed Syrian terrorists at the border:
According to the UN report, a person wounded on 15 September "was taken by armed members of the opposition across the ceasefire line, where he was transferred to a civilian ambulance escorted by an IDF vehicle."

Moreover, from 9-19 November, the "UNDOF observed at least 10 wounded persons being transferred by armed members of the opposition from the Bravo side across the ceasefire line to IDF."

Israel initially had maintained that it was treating only civilians. However, reports claimed that earlier last month members of Israel's Druze minority protested the hospitalisation of wounded Syrian fighters from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front in Israel.

A statement issued by a group of Druze activists accused the Israeli government of supporting radical Sunni factions such as the Islamic State (ISIS).

Replying to a question by i24News on whether Israel has given medical assistance to members of al-Nusra and Daesh (the Arabic acronym for the Islamic State (ISIS), a Israeli military spokesman's office said: "In the past two years the Israel Defence Forces have been engaged in humanitarian, life-saving aid to wounded Syrians, irrespective of their identity."

The UN report also laid out instances where in Israeli army was seen interacting with armed rebels. In one incident, the report claimed that the IDF gave some boxes to the Syrian armed rebels.

FYI, there's really no difference between al-Nusra and Da'esh/ISIS.

Then there's this: Mossad training ISIL terrorists: Putin aide
Alexander Prokhanov told Press TV that Mossad is also likely to have transferred some of its spying experiences to the ISIL leadership, adding that Israel's military advisors could be assisting the Takfiri terrorists.

"ISIL is a tool at the hands of the United States. They tell the Europeans that if we (the Americans) do not intervene, ISIL will cause you harm," he said, adding that Iran and Russia are the prime targets of the ISIL.

"They launched their first terror attack against us just a few days back in Chechnya," he said, stressing that the ISIL ideology has got nothing to do with the Islam practised in Iran and some other Muslim countries in the Middle East region.

Prokhanov said the United States and Israel are one and the same when it comes to supporting a terror organization like the ISIL.

Now, despite giving vocal and even humanitarian support to the Palestinians, Russia has maintained a fairly neutral relationship with that hysterical banshee of the Middle East: Israel. So Prokhanov's statement here is significant. (Prokhanov is an author and activist, editor-in-chief of the right-wing Zavtra newspaper, and member of numerous public councils in the Russian Federation. While it's hard to know what influence, if any, he really has with Putin, he's part of a group of thinkers that apparently has Putin's ear, which includes Sergei Glazyev.) Not only that, Russia has publicly demanded an explanation for Israel's latest bombing of Syria:
"Moscow is deeply worried by this dangerous development, the circumstances of which demand an explanation," Russian foreign ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said.

In a letter to the United Nations, Russia complained about Israel's "aggressive action" and demanded that such attacks should not happen again, the spokesman said.

Syria also complained to the UN about the strikes, demanding that the Security Council "severely condemn the Israeli attack and impose punitive sanctions on Israel due to its support of Syrian terrorist organizations."

Israel has neither confirmed nor denied the reported strikes. "We have a firm policy of preventing all possible transfers of sophisticated weapons to terrorist organizations," Intelligence Minister Yuval Steinitz told Israel Radio on Monday.
...except when they're the ones doing it! What a lying bunch of psychopaths. And note the use of the word 'possible' here. Can we say "Minority Report"? Philip K. Dick, not to mention George Orwell, would certainly not approve.
The Damascus airport warehouses reportedly targeted by the Israeli air strikes on Sunday held Iranian missile systems destined for the Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah, DPA reported, quoting a Lebanese security source.

Al-Arabiya reported that two Hezbollah militants, one of whom was high-ranking, were killed in the strike.

A Syrian military source confirmed that the hangars at Damascus International Airport contained missiles but gave no details about their origin or destination.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitoring group, described the target as an import-export warehouse in the military area of the airport.

The Lebanese official, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said a Hezbollah convoy heading to Lebanon had been hit in another set of strikes at Dimas, approximately half-way between Damascus and the Lebanese border.

In Teheran on Monday, the Syrian and Iranian foreign ministers condemned the reported Israeli air strikes, calling them an act of aggression that proves Israel was "in the same trench" with extremist groups fighting the Syrian government.

Speaking on Monday at a joint news conference in Tehran with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem said Israel was trying to compensate for losses incurred by Islamic extremist groups in Syria at the hands of the Syrian army. He did not elaborate.
Every day, it becomes more obvious that the U.S. and Israel (not to mention the EU and NATO) are the ideological blood-brothers of terrorist groups like ISIS and al-Nusra. They share the same brutal, cynical, anti-human mentality. They rape, torture, and murder in their struggle for global domination and their psychopathic urge for the ultimate degradation of all human values. And sooner or later, it will become so obvious that only the most die-hard authoritarian follower will buy into the transparent mask of sanity these psychopaths project to the world. Unfortunately, sick bastards like the ones ruling Israel don't give up easily. They're willing to take the world down with them.
