The US / ISIS Debacle: Given the history of American intervention in the developing world, it would be nearly impossible for a U.S. led conceptual effort to succeed. Invading Iraq to establish a shining example of democracy; a notion espoused by some neocons, was simply specious and did an inestimable amount of damage to our international credibility.

Identifying the Threat: What Senior Officials Still Don’t Understand

“Two European foreign fighters were killed on the same day in recent U.S. airstrikes, a Pentagon spokesman announced Thursday.” Thus begins yet another article addressing the killing of foreign fighters in Iraq or Syria. Published on 7 April, 2016, it continues stating, “Col. Steve Warren, spokesman for the coalition against ISIS, identified the two as Abu al-Zubair al-Bosni and Khaled Othman Al Timawi. Al-Bosni was a Swedish national of Bosnian decent who was killed in Bajar, Iraq, and Al Timawi was a Swedish-born foreign fighter, described by Warren as ISIS’s deputy emir of the Anwar al Awlaki brigade.” 

In order to fix any problem, a fundamental rule of management is that you have to first isolate and identify it. Using root cause analysis insures you are addressing the actual basis of the problem and not just the symptoms. Terrorism, be it suicide bombings, beheadings, destruction of antiquities, or attempts to acquire and hold territory, is a symptom, not the cause. Yet, we continually focus on fighting these obvious abominations, and fail to correctly identify the real basis of the problem. Following the egregious attacks of 9/11 the U.S. declared war on terror even though many experts realized that terrorism was a means to an end, not an object that could be defeated. 

The situation has not gotten much better. Since the inception of al Qaeda, most Defense and Intelligence Community officials have attempted to objectify both al Qaeda and ISIS/ISIL using geographic parameters. As in the referenced article, the location at happenstance of birth often is used as a defining factor for identity. That is an error, which, until rectified will prevent more serious efforts in substantially diminishing or eliminating that threat. Simply put, Islamic fundamentalist terrorism is a concept not a place or a thing; a notion I addressed about a year ago. The conflict’s name changed several times but our lack of a coherent and viable objective remains problematic. 

As if to emphasis the non-territorial aspect of the issue, Admiral Mike Rogers, commander of the latest combatant command, U.S. Cyber Command, stated “that ISIS could start to view cyber as a weapon system” to attack critical infrastructure in the U.S. In fact, those associated with information warfare often struggle when attempting to finger the geographical location of an attacker. It is even more complicated when trying to formally associate any specific hacker with their government. On occasions the linkage can be made, but often not.

All of the responses to Islamic terrorism appear to be tactical rather than strategic in nature, aka whack-a-mole. While these seem like logical steps when you don’t know what to do, those efforts fail consistently. After more than a year of constant bombing, while there have been some territorial losses for ISIS in Syria and Iraq, their strength remains about constant and they have made territorial gains in other areas, especially North Africa. The leadership decapitation tactics against them have not worked. Week after week there are announcements pertaining to the demise of one ISIS or al Qaeda leader after another. In reality, these targeting killings do little more than provide career opportunities for those ascending through the ranks behind them.

The reality is that ISIS could have been eliminated in Iraq and Syria months ago, and it would not have required ever-increasing numbers of American forces. The solution required realignment of coalition forces. Instead, Turkey is now engaging most our effective anti-ISIS allies, the Kurds, who in turn have allowed retaliation with attacks in Istanbul. Iran has fought ISIS; but with Russia, supports the Assad regime in Syria. Saudi Arabia battles Yemeni Houthi rebels who are supported by Iran. There, however, the bombing missions have raise serious issues about collateral damage and some observers called them possible war crimes. American interests come into play as U.S. Central Command supported the Saudi actions by indicating that the laws of war are being observed. Meanwhile the media focuses on the American origin of the bombs and aircraft attacking Yemen.

All of these actions have helped facilitate ISIS, and other related terrorist groups, recruitment efforts. For ISIS members who are ideologically drive, death is anticipated, a desired outcome, and not to be avoided. Seemingly forgotten are the tenants articulated in the prescient article in The Atlantic by Graeme Wood titled What ISIS Really Wants. Specifically he noted that ISIS wanted to hold territory (a vulnerability) yet anticipates decimation and near extinction in order to precipitate Armageddon, the final days.

Competing social media programs have played interesting roles in the geography-free Netherlands of cyberspace. While techniques morph over time, media-savvy ISIS members adroitly entice a constant stream of vulnerable and willing recruits. Recently coalition elements have begun to engage in competitive messaging in an attempt to assuage would-be volunteers from venturing forth. There is debate about the attraction of ISIS. Some analysts hold radicle Islamic ideology plays a central role. Others suggest that enticement is more like the recruiting methods of gangs. That is they appeal as a chance for valor, belonging, and an opportunity to do something of meaningful. While you can argue about the apparently misguided virtues of the end-states proffered by ISIS, these values are potent in the minds of restless or estranged youth. 

Less clear is the acceptance of these values by the highly educated people who have joined the radical Islamic cause and committed horrific acts. Consider the case of Tareq Kemleh, an Australian medical doctor, who made a video attempting to recruit other Western doctors to join ISIS. Not an isolated case, Bilal Abdullah, a British doctor, attempted a suicide attack at Glasgow International Airport. And then there is Major Nidal Hassan, M.D., who killed 13 soldiers and wounded more than 30 others in an attack at Ft Hood, Texas. Clearly, the attraction is more than to just the alienated, or adventure-seeking youth. However, lacking an overall strategy, the coalition resorts to tactical counter-recruitment techniques. 

Similarly, ISIS logistics and finance have targeted by coalition forces. It is hard to determine just how effective these efforts have been. What is known is that ISIS continues to function and wage attacks suggesting that they do have adequate resources to carry the fight forward. The continued bombing campaign has had a deleterious effect on U.S. Air Force readiness. To offset stress on the B-1 fleet, recently added to the effort is the venerable B-52 (sometimes known unkindly as the BUFF). While the B-52 can carry a lot of ordnance, even with new sensor systems, precision is not its strong suit. There has got to be more done to countering logistics and finance than simply attacking the oil under ISIS control and intercepting international banking transactions. 

What is needed is a new, comprehensive strategy that acknowledges the realities of the global totality of the situation. First, we must recognize that the threat is a concept not an object. There are deep underlying issues that cannot be bombed or killed out of existence. While ISIS, with its horrific behavior, grabs most of the current headlines, there are a host of philosophically aligned organizations that act similarly. Al Qaeda, Boko Harem, al Shabaab, are a few of the better known ones. However, we can be sure that even if those elements are annihilated, without addressing the root causes, new groups will emerge and take their place.
Second, concepts transcend all borders, and thus there are no foreign fighters. Except for legal purposes we should stop addressing combatants based on their geographic location at birth. 

Third, to counter a concept a more attractive alternative is required. Given the history of American intervention in the developing world, it would be nearly impossible for a U.S. led conceptual effort to succeed. Invading Iraq to establish a shining example of democracy; a notion espoused by some neocons, was simply specious and did an inestimable amount of damage to our international credibility.

Since Islamic fundamentalism is an integral part of the problem, it is essential that more moderate Muslim leaders of the world develop the alternative solution. The strategy must be global, encompassing more than the Middle East. The alternative concept must be inclusive of competing beliefs and values, yet demonstrate abhorrence for violent behavior to accomplish political means (terrorism will not be tolerated or condoned). 

It will be extremely difficult to accomplish. Confounding factors include the long-existing Sunni-Shia conflagrations and counterfactual attitudes exacerbated by information technology. Unfortunately we have entered an information age in which facts are irrelevant to large segments of societies. Even well educated people often abandon facts and reason to advance their emotionally-driven positions. 

There will be geographic realignments as the antiquated Eurocentric artificial subdivisions of areas continue to dissolve. As with prior decolonization, devolution is likely to be a painful process, albeit a necessary one. Success in countering terrorist’s behavior will only come when the vast majority of the world’s population believes that they have a reasonable and equitable chance at personal advancement. We are a long way from that at the moment, and possibly regressing rather than making improvements.

Terroristic behavior will not stop in the near future. How, we need to reset the stage and move to a strategic approach to identifying and resolving the problems. Whack-a-mole is not working.

    70 years of endless US fighting and losing needless wars and our absurd support of Israeli fascism and occupation will only create one version of ISiS after another.

  5. War is an intense, brutal, and an inhumane cold dark hell that destroys the participants, immediately or slowly over time. Any nation that engages in constant war is a nation that is a failure.

    YET


    The Pentagon has had months to deal with it.

    “We're expending munitions faster than we can replenish them,” USA Today quoted Air Force chief of staff Gen. Mark Welsh as saying in December.

    Since then Secretary of Defense Ash Carter has asked Congress to include funding for 45,000 smart bombs in the Defense Department’s 2017 budget. But it could take a while to rebuild the stockpile.

    “The US maintains a pretty steady inventory of bombs and missiles for full-on war scenarios,” says Roman Schweizer, aerospace and defense policy analyst at Guggenheim Securities in Washington. “But 2 1/2 years of fighting ISIS and continued bombing in Afghanistan have exceeded weapons-use projections.”

    Operation Inherent Resolve, the US-led military intervention against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant flies bombing missions in Syria and Iraq. The United States, which flies a majority of the missions, strikes ISIS targets with laser- and GPS-guided bombs, Joint Direct Attack Munition bombs, Joint Standoff Weapons, and air-to-ground missiles, such as the Hellfire. Per unit pricetags on these munitions range from around $25,000 to close to $400,000.

    "In the early days of the [Syria] campaign the Navy fired a bunch of Tomahawk cruise missiles," notes Schweizer, "and those are in the $1 million cost range — but they're really the higher end of what you might use if you have a contested airspace and you don't want to put aircraft over targets."

    In the war against ISIS, the United States and its allies control the airspace, allowing their planes to fly low and close to targets. "Pilots are able to get close because you are not fighting a very sophisticated — albeit a brutal — enemy, and you're able to use shorter range- but more precision-guided munitions."

    There is good reason for precision, notes Schweizer.

    "Because these are obviously some congested environments, and the enemy adapts and puts himself in positions where he's hard to target without collateral damage or civilian casualties." Estimates of the numbers of civilian deaths in the air war against ISIS vary, but the independent watchdog group Airwars.org estimates more than 1,000 civilians killed, mostly by Russian or Syrian air strikes.

    The United States dropped more than 20,000 guided bombs and missiles on Iraq and Syria in 2015. In recent months the US has transferred additional quantities of bombs to allies in the region. “There are also NATO and Gulf Cooperation Council allies participating in these strikes as well, and in some cases they’re drawing off of US stockpiles because their own domestic inventories may not be sufficient.”

    Let’s end America’s hopeless war for the Middle East

    The country’s longest war is unwinnable, and the US has more important things to do.


    A hundred years ago, the armies of World War I fought to a bloody stalemate on the Western Front and desperately searched for ways to break it and gain an edge. They field-tested tanks and poison gas, rolling barrages and storm-trooper tactics. Today, the United States is stuck in an analogous stalemate in the Middle East and Islamic world in general. And we are field-testing all manner of novelties, much like the great armies of Europe mired in the trenches: the so-called Revolution in Military Affairs and counterinsurgency, precision-guided munitions and unmanned aerial vehicles, not to mention such passing fancies as “overwhelming force,” “shock and awe,” and “air occupation.”

    Yet as was the case a century ago, the introduction of some new battlefield technique does not necessarily signify progress. On the contrary, it only deepens the stalemate.

    To reflect on this longest of American wars—why it goes on and on, and at such a cost of blood and treasure—is to confront two questions. First, why has the world’s mightiest military achieved so little even while absorbing very considerable losses and inflicting even greater damage on the subjects of America’s supposed beneficence? Second, why in the face of such unsatisfactory outcomes has the United States refused to chart a different course? In short, why can’t we win? And since we haven’t won, why can’t we get out?

    The answer to these questions starts with questioning the premise. The tendency to see the region and Islamic world primarily as a problem that will yield to an American military solution is, in fact, precisely the problem.
    To an unseemly and ultimately self-destructive degree, we have endorsed the misguided militarization of U.S. foreign policy. As a consequence, we have allowed our country to be pulled into the impossible task of trying to “shape” the region through martial means.

    It’s long past time to stop trying (a conclusion that even President Obama appears to be edging his way toward, judging from his recent comments to The Atlantic).


    The United States plunged militarily into the Middle East out of the mistaken belief that the privileged status that Americans take as their birthright was at risk. Way back in 1948, George Kennan, State Department director of policy planning, noted that the United States then possessed “about 50 percent of the world’s wealth but only 6.3 percent of its population.” The challenge facing U.S. policymakers, he believed, was “to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity without positive detriment to our national security.” The overarching aim of American statecraft, in other words, was to sustain the uniquely favorable situation to which the United States had ascended by the end of World War II.

    A half century later, that strategy succeeded and the Soviet Union collapsed. But the passing of the Cold War period left our massive national security apparatus underemployed while rendering obsolete the policy underlying postwar U.S. military policy—energetically preparing for global war in order to prevent it. The armed services and their various clients came face to face with a crisis of the first order. With the likelihood of World War III subsiding to somewhere between remote and infinitesimal—with the overarching purpose for which the postwar U.S. military establishment had been created thereby fulfilled—what exactly did that establishment and all of its ancillary agencies, institutes, collaborators, and profit-making auxiliaries exist to do?

      In stark contrast to the Cold War, American purposes and U.S. military policy in the Islamic world have never aligned.

      The Pentagon wasted no time in providing an answer to that question. Rather than keeping the peace, it declared, the new key to perpetuating Kennan’s position of disparity was to “shape” the global order. Shaping now became the military’s primary job. In 1992, the Defense Planning Guidance drafted under the aegis of Paul Wolfowitz spelled out this argument in detail. Pointing proudly to the “new international environment” that had already “been shaped by the victory” over Saddam Hussein the year before, that document provided a blueprint explaining how American power could “shape the future.”

      The Greater Middle East was to serve—indeed, was even then already serving—as the chosen arena for honing military power into a utensil that would maintain America’s privileged position and, not so incidentally, provide a continuing rationale for the entire apparatus of national security. That region’s predominantly Muslim population thereby became the subjects of experiments ranging from the nominally benign—peacekeeping, peacemaking and humanitarian intervention—to the nakedly coercive. Beginning in 1980, U.S. forces ventured into the Greater Middle East to reassure, warn, intimidate, suppress, pacify, rescue, liberate, eliminate, transform and overawe. They bombed, raided, invaded, occupied and worked through proxies of various stripes. In 1992, Wolfowitz had expressed the earnest hope of American might addressing the “sources of regional instability in ways that promote international law, limit international violence, and encourage the spread of democratic government and open economic systems.” The results actually produced over the course of several decades of trying have never come even remotely close to satisfying such expectations...

      Why in this instance doesn’t the ostensibly superior power of the United States confer choice? How can it be that even today, large segments of the policy elite entertain fantasies of salvaging victory if only a smart president will make the requisite smart moves?

      To understand the persistence of such illusions requires appreciating several assumptions that promote in Washington a deeply pernicious collective naiveté. Seldom explicitly articulated, these assumptions pervade the U.S. national security establishment.

      The first assumption is that those responsible for formulating U.S. policy in the Greater Middle East—not only elected and appointed officials but also the military officers assigned to senior posts—are able to discern the historical forces at work in the region. But they can’t...

      A second assumption takes it for granted that as the sole global superpower the United States possesses not only the wisdom but also the wherewithal to control or direct such forces. In the 20th century, “our” side won because American industry and ingenuity produced not only superior military might but also a superior way of life based on consumption and choice—so at least Americans have been thoroughly conditioned to believe. A third assumption asserts that U.S. military power offers the most expeditious means of ensuring that universal freedom prevails—that the armed might of the United States, made manifest in the presence of airplanes, warships and fighting troops, serves as an irreplaceable facilitator or catalyst in moving history toward its foreordained destination.

      That the commitment of American armed might could actually backfire and make matters worse is a proposition that few authorities in Washington are willing to entertain...

      Dang, the article is pretty long. I've been skipping over section but their is a lot left.
      Just a couple more points that were made.

      In circumstances such as this, there are two broad ways of employing military power. The first is to wait things out—insulating yourself from the problem’s worst effects while promoting a nonviolent solution from within. This requires patience and comes with no guarantee of ultimate success. With all the usual caveats attached, this is the approach the United States took during the Cold War. The second approach is more direct. It aims to eliminate the problem through sustained, relentless military action. This entails less patience but incurs greater near-term costs. After a certain amount of shilly-shallying, it was this head-on approach that the Union adopted during the Civil War.

      In the War for the Greater Middle East, the United States chose neither to contain nor to crush, instead charting a course midway in between. In effect, it chose aggravation...

      In what ranks as the ultimate irony, the circumstances that had made the Persian Gulf worth fighting for in the first place have ceased to pertain. If today the American way of life still depends, for better or for worse, on having access to plentiful reserves of oil and natural gas, then the Western Hemisphere, not the Persian Gulf, deserves top billing in the Pentagon’s hierarchy of strategic priorities. Defending Canada and Venezuela should take precedence over defending Saudi Arabia and Iraq. To put it another way, the United States would be better served to secure its own neighborhood rather than vainly attempting to police the Greater Middle East—and it would likely enjoy greater success, to boot...

      Even so, shorn of its initial rationale, the War for the Greater Middle East continues. That the ongoing enterprise may someday end—that U.S. troops will finally depart—appears so unlikely as to make the prospect unworthy of discussion. Like the war on drugs or the war on poverty, the War for the Greater Middle East has become a permanent fixture in American life and is accepted as such.

      Partly this is because the ongoing war has long since acquired a perfidious seal of bipartisan approval, with both Republicans and Democrats alike implicated. Politicians aspiring to high office, especially those contemplating a bid for the presidency, find it more expedient to “support the troops” (and therefore the war) than to question the war’s efficacy or to propose alternative approaches to satisfying U.S. objectives in the Islamic world...

      Perhaps most important, there is this: Thus far, at least, Americans themselves appear oblivious to what is occurring. Policymakers have successfully insulated the public from the war’s negative effects. Reliance on a professional military places the burden of service and sacrifice onto a very small percentage of citizens and lets everyone else off the hook. The resort to deficit spending to underwrite the war’s costs sloughs off onto future generations the onus of paying the bills.

      It’s not that Americans today actively support the war in the same sense that their grandparents supported World War II. It’s that they see no particular reason to attend one way or another to the war’s progress or likely outcome. In a fundamental sense, the war is not their concern.

      In the 21st century, the prerequisites of freedom, abundance and security are changing. Geopolitically, Asia is eclipsing in importance all other regions apart perhaps from North America itself. The emerging problem set—coping with the effects of climate change, for example—is global and will require a global response. Whether Americans are able to preserve the privileged position to which they are accustomed will depend on how well and how quickly the United States adapts the existing “pattern of relationships” to fit these fresh circumstances.

      Amid such challenges, the afflictions besetting large portions of the Islamic world will undoubtedly persist. But their relative importance to the United States as determinants of American well-being will diminish, a process even today already well advanced even if U.S. national security priorities have yet to reflect this fact.

      In this context, the War for the Greater Middle East becomes a diversion that Americans can ill afford.

    Moscow (AFP) - Belarusian singer Ivan plans to take next month's Eurovision Song Contest by storm -- performing completely naked with a wolf at his side.

    But his plan may prove too much even for a show known as an annual celebration of weirdness, held this year in Stockholm in May.

    The act by the lanky 21-year-old with a mane of reddish blond hair was dreamt up by Viktor Drobysh, a well-known Russian producer with a strong Eurovision track record.

  14. Joint forces liberate two areas in Heet District, dozens of ISIS fighters killed

    (IraqiNews.com) Anbar – Heet District Council in Anbar Province announced on Sunday, that the security forces started to cleanse the areas of al-Qalaa and al-Omal neighborhood in Heet District, while pointed out to the killing of dozens of ISIS members west of Ramadi.

    The Head of Heet District Council Mohammed Mohannad al-Hiti said in a press statement obtained by IraqiNews.com, “The joint forces managed to cleanse the areas of al-Qalaa and al-Omal neighborhood in Heet District after fierce battles, while killed dozens of ISIS fighters and destroyed a number of their vehicles.”

    Hiti added, “The cleansing battles of Heet are now different,” pointing out that, “ISIS is carrying out suicide attacks, street fights and sniping operations in an attempt to open havens for its fighters to escape from the city.”

    Hiti continued, “We will liberate other parts of Heet and raise the Iraqi flag over the government buildings in the coming few hours, after dismantling the improvised explosive devices and booby-trapped buildings that impede the advance of the security forces in the remaining areas of the city.”

      With respect to the question of Jewish purchase of land from Arabs - purchasing a plot of land, by anyone Jewish or not Jewish shouldn't affect the sovereign status of that land. One of the many problems in the West Bank is that Israelis buy land and then claim that land is part of Israel. Israelis also simply settle on land (no deed of purchase) and claim that land as part of Israel. There are many problems with this but, I realize, for a man of your intellect, this is a bit over your head. You might want to start by examining your logical statement above and see where it fails basic logic.

      For the same reason, Palestinians are restricted from buying land in Area of the WB. For the same reason they can't buy or even lease property in Jerusalem. The same reason most residents of East Jerusalem, as reported by Haartz, aren't able to buy land in West Jerusalem. It's why Hebron is divided with 20% of it under IDF control with more soldiers patrolling than the entire population of 500-800 Jewish Settlers even though the city has 215,000 Palestinians. It is why in 2014, over half of all Israeli building permits were in the WB or Jerusalem. It is why Israel subsidizes the settlements. It's why Palestinian development and construction in Area C is all but banned, with 94 percent of Palestinian building-licence requests denied between 2000 and 2012. It's why according to World Bank estimates, Israeli restrictions in Area C cost the Palestinian economy $3.4bn a year, or 33 percent of its GDP.

      It's all about the land.

  37. In his ongoing analysis of what he terms the world’s “shatterbelts,” those regions constituting sites of instability and ferment, American political geographer Saul B. Cohen has, over a period of almost 50 years, always included the Middle East in his list. Indeed, while other regions of instability come and go, the Middle East is the only region which has remained a constant “shatterbelt” in his constant re-evaluations of changing world politics every 10 to 15 years.

    ...

    Israel, located at the very heart of this geopolitical shatterbelt, is unclear as to whether it is located (geographically) in the East, or (culturally) in the West. Are we part of the Middle East or are we an outlier of Europe?

    Are we part of the hybrid region linking Europe to the Middle East, known as the Mediterranean, with a mix of cultures and religions which rejects exclusion and which attempts to bring peoples together? It requires a greater understanding of the internal human and cultural complexities of this region if we wish to see Israel develop in any other way than as “fortress Israel,” surrounded by walls and fences and, in effect dislocated from, and threatened by, the geographical region within which we are located, a geopolitical outlier in the midst of a hostile environment.

    Since the collective christian world and the collective islamic world has raped, pillaged and destroyed the Jewish people for 2000 years without letup your question seems a tad bit full of shit...

    Israel sits on 1/900 of the middle east, it's population is 20% non-jewish, it is a democracy.

    The arab world sits on 899/900 of the middle east, 1/2 the world’s oil supply, sided with the Nazis during ww2 and have expelled the 600,000 Jews from their historic homes (stolen their property) driving them to Israel.


    ...

    The damage radius of a nuclear weapon increases with the power of the nuclear bomb, approximately in proportion to its cube root.

    For example, If one exploded at the optimum height, a 10-megaton weapon, 1,000 times as powerful as a 10-kiloton weapon, will increase the distance tenfold, that is, out to 17.7 km (11 mi) depending on the terrain for severe damage and 24 km (15 mi) for moderate damage.

    Now if we accept Genius’s oft stated assertion about Israel’s size compared to the Islamic World in the ME, you see the absurdity of an Israeli nuclear offensive strategy.

    3-5 nuclear weapons would put an end to Israel as an effective state and would kill more than 30% of the population. Israel has huge depth of concentrations of population in a fraction of the space of Israeli occupation. Most of them can be hit asymmetrically with unconventional delivery systems with little or no warning.

    Israel could use one nuclear weapon or all of them against the Islamic World and make little long term impact on them, Israel would be signing its own death warrant, regardless of their mega tonnage of weapons.

  40. Summarizing the different external influences on Morocco, the late king Hassan II eloquently stated that his country was a tree that has its roots in Africa, its trunk in the Arab-Muslim world and its branches in Europe. Today, Moroccans proudly highlight their multiple and composite identity: Amazigh, Arab, Islamic, Jewish, African, Andalusian and Mediterranean, and their time-old tolerance and acceptance of the other.

    Following in the steps of his father king Hassan II treated Moroccan Jews with great deference. He appointed one of them, André Azoulay, as a royal adviser and was instrumental in initiating political contacts between Palestinians and Israelis that led to the Oslo Accords in 1993 which kick-started the Oslo process.

    The present king, Mohammed VI, is no different from his predecessors – he is a man of dialogue and coexistence and Morocco today is a haven of peace and coexistence between all religions and cultures, which is reflected in gold in the Moroccan constitution of 2011.

The delivery vehicle for the weapon will be in a Toyota, upwind outside of Israel’s occupied frontier with a followup attack into Israeli territory, taking advantage of the nuclear shock and awe.

    Astonishingly predictable and not stoppable.

    3. Obama will see to it that the Muzzies are properly Nuked-Up before he leaves office.
      ...even if he has to do it by Executive Action.

      The last remark is as silly as those who accuse Obama of not supporting Israel. Neither match reality.

    Quirk:

    ...For the same reason they can't buy or even lease property in Jerusalem. The same reason most residents of East Jerusalem, as reported by Haartz, aren't able to buy land in West Jerusalem...

    WiO:

    Arabs buy land all over Israel, including Jerusalem..

    Dumbass



    Tell it to Haartz.



    Bibi:

    "Our policy is that Jerusalem residents can purchase apartments anywhere in the city. There is no ban on Arabs buying apartments in the west of the city, and there is no ban on Jews building or buying in the city's east," Netanyahu said in response to the U.S. request to halt a Jewish construction project in East Jerusalem.

    Haartz:

    An examination by Haaretz, however, presented a rather different situation on the ground.

    According to Israel Lands Administration rules, residents of East Jerusalem cannot take ownership of the vast majority of Jerusalem homes.

    When an Israeli citizen purchases an apartment or house, ownership of the land remains with the ILA, which leases it to the purchaser for a period of 49 years, enabling the registration of the home ("tabu"). Article 19 of the ILA lease specifies that a foreign national cannot lease - much less own - ILA land.

    Attorney Yael Azoulay, of Zeev and Naomi Weil Lawyers and Notary Office, explains that if a foreign national purchases an apartment they must show the ILA proof of eligibility to immigrate to Israel in accordance with the Law of Return. Non-Jewish foreigners cannot purchase apartments. This group includes Palestinians from the east of the city, who have Israeli identity cards but are residents rather than citizens of Israel.

    Most residences in West Jerusalem and in the Jewish neighborhoods of East Jerusalem are built on ILA land.


    Hmmmm. Who to believe?

    Bibi?

    WiO?


    Or Haartz?


    Gee, that's a toughie.

  44. Russia’s Latest Weapons Sale to Iran Shifts the Balance of Mideast Power

    Iran is purchasing more and more military hardware from Russia, as Tehran moves to aggressively beef up its military capability after decades of international economic sanctions.

    Moscow will deliver S-300 air defense missile systems to Iran in "the nearest time," RIA news agency quoted Russia's Foreign Ministry as saying on Monday.

    Russia and Iran signed an $800 million contract in 2007 for the supply of five S-300 systems, but the advanced defensive weapons system deal was frozen in 2010 due to U.N sanctions. Russian President Vladimir Putin approved delivery of the air defense missile system in April 2015.

    Iran has also shown interest in buying more advanced, S-400 missile systems, which are currently deployed at Russia’s airbase in Syria, but no formal talks have reportedly been held.

    The news of the S-300’s imminent delivery comes on the heels of an announcement last week on Iran’s Ministry of Defense web site that the Islamic Republic will sign a contract with Russia for the purchase of Sukhoi-30 fighter jets. The fighter jet, which is part of Moscow’s military arsenal in the war in Syria, is said to be comparable to the American F-15E fighter-bomber.

    Rumor has it that Iran actually pays for the weapons it procures.
