Reader asks why mention of Zionist Israel’s role in the latest US theatrics in confronting the takfiris is absent from all discourse.
There is something really curious going on in the Muslim East. Where is Zionist Israel in the US-Arab attack on ISIS/ISIL? After all, Israel is a close ally of the US and almost all American policies in the region are geared to protect the Zionist State.
Can we believe that Israel is not involved in the ISIS/ISIL conspiracy even if we do not hear much about it? Here is what I think. First, Israeli crimes against innocent people in Gaza have gone off the front pages of newspapers and are no longer mentioned on television. They got little coverage to start with. But Israel is not a disengaged party. It has supported the terrorists including those on the Occupied Golan Heights.
On September 23, the Zionists shot down an aging Syrian MiG plane near the Golan Heights. It was inside Syrian territory. There was a clear message: the Zionists will protect the terrorists operating against the Syrian government because the US-Zionist plan all along has been to overthrow Bashar al-Asad’s government to destroy the resistance front against Israel.
