The Israeli government’s position on ISIS and the Syrian government has been at odds with ethics and logic at times.
It jumps at any excuse to bomb the Syrian army; misfired rockets fired by unknown parties into Israel-occupied Golan Heights, causing no injuries, led it to immediately bomb two Syrian army installations in September.
In March, 2014, it also bombed Syrian military sites in “retaliation” for a roadside bombing in the Golan Heights. It is unknown how they determined that it was the Syrian army that was to blame for the roadside bombing- a tactic that has been more closely associated with militants than the Syrian army.
While it has often claimed that its targets were weapons that were to be delivered to Hezbollah, it has struck at Syrian facilities in the Syrian capital of Damascus. It also strikes at Syrian army weapons convoys.
With regards to Islamic militants fighting the Syrian government though, the Israeli government has been far more magnanimous; it has risked the lives of Israeli soldiers to save… extremists who openly admit that they intend to murder Israeli civilians!
A case of the enemy of your enemy being your friend? If that is so, then Assad must be an enemy far worse than ISIS is to the Israeli government.
The Daily Mail:
Almost every night, Israeli troops run secret missions to save the lives of Syrian fighters, all of whom are sworn enemies of the Jewish state.
Israel insists that these treacherous nightly rescues are purely humanitarian, and that it can only hope to ‘win hearts and minds’ in Syria. But analysts suggest the Jewish state has in fact struck a deadly ‘deal with the devil‘ – offering support to the Sunni militants who fight the Syrian ruler Assad in the hope of containing its arch enemies Hezbollah and Iran.
‘My dream is that one day, the Red Cross will say, thanks guys, we’ll take it from here, you go back to your unit and take care of injured Israelis,’ said Lieutenant Colonel Itzik Malka, commander of the medical branch of the Golan Brigade.
Indeed, why not leave this mess to the Red Cross?
While the Israeli government claims that its intent is purely humanitarian, one cannot help but recall with cynicism their treatment of Palestinians during Operation Protective Edge: 1462 Palestinian civilians, of whom 495 were kids and 253 were women, were killed– a “humanitarian” response to the deaths of three Israeli teens?
Wikileaks cables had previously revealed Israel’s role in attempting to overthrow Assad.
Israel’s blockade on Palestine has also prevented the import of fresh meat to feed the Palestinian people or even construction material to rebuild the land it had decimated.
Issa Peres is a 36-year-old Christian Israeli Arab social worker who is hired to treat these extremists:
‘I work with the Syrians all the time, I see and hear bad things,’ he said. ‘Many of them said bad words to me, that they are going to kill me, they are going to fight with the Christian community, when they are safe they will fight against Israel.
‘They have destroyed churches and Christian communities in Syria. I have to care for them, it is my job. But if I’m sitting with myself, I say no, it is not right for Israel to treat them.’
Asked about the fighters’ promises not to fight against Israel in the future, he said: ‘I don’t trust any one of them. They grew up believing Israel is their enemy... You can’t change their minds by taking care of them for two weeks.’
Indeed, it would seem that the Israeli government wants to help extremists who want to destroy Israel… so that they will not attack Israel??
‘The Syrians will not strike us because they know we’d stop helping them,‘ Lieutenant Colonel Malka told MailOnline. Now, if ISIS managed to take over thanks to your assistance though…
The trouble with dealing with the devil, is that you first have to sell your soul.
Netanyahu might need to take out a loan for this one.
