Syria gives Palestinian militant group go-ahead to attack Israel: spokesman.

BEIRUT – President Bashar Assad’s regime has given a Palestinian militant group the go-ahead to set up missiles to attack Israel in the wake of recent Israeli airstrikes on the Syrian capital, a spokesman for the group said Tuesday.

Syria has hinted at possible retribution against Israel since the Jewish state carried out the airstrikes over the weekend, although official government statements have been relatively mild. In that light, the Assad regime’s decision to allow a minor Syria-based Palestinian group to prepare for attacks is largely seen as a face-saving gesture unlikely to escalate the confrontation with Israel.

“Syria has given the green light to set up missile batteries to directly attack Israeli targets,” Anwar Raja of the Damascus-based Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command told The Associated Press.

He said authorities also told the PFLP-GC that the group could carry out attacks independently without consulting Syrian authorities.

“Practically, the Syrian stand has always been supportive of the Palestinian resistance and Syria provides the Palestinian resistance with all capabilities including all kinds of weapons,” Raja said.

When the revolt against Assad’s rule began in March 2011, the half-million-strong Palestinian community in Syria largely stayed on the sidelines. But as the uprising shifted into a civil war, many Palestinians backed the rebels, while some groups have been fighting on the government side.

Those include the PFLP-GC, a small Damascus-based Palestinian militant faction that the U.S has designated a terrorist organization.

In the 1960s through 1980s, PFLP-GC militants hijacked an Israeli airliner, machine-gunned another at Zurich’s airport, and blew up a Tel Aviv-bound Swissair plane, killing all 47 aboard. In 1987, a PFLP-GC guerrilla flew from Lebanon into Israel on a hang-glider and killed six soldiers before being shot dead.

While the group earned notoriety for its past attacks on Israel, it has been eclipsed in the past 20 years by the other Islamic militant groups such as Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Israel’s government has not formally confirmed involvement in the strikes on Syria. However, Israeli officials have said the attacks were meant to prevent advanced Iranian weapons from reaching Lebanon’s Hezbollah militia, an ally of Syria and foe of Israel.

The airstrikes raised the possibility of a wider regional conflict with Syria, which is already engulfed in a civil war that has killed more than 70,000 people, as its focal point.

Iran, a close ally of the Assad regime, has condemned the Israeli attacks and warned of possible retaliation.

But on Tuesday, Iran’s foreign minister said it is Syria’s Arab neighbours – not Tehran – who should respond to the Israeli strikes.

Speaking to reporters in Amman, Jordan, Ali Akbar Salehi said Arab nations “must stand by their brethren in Damascus.”

The Israeli strikes were met with condemnation from Arab nations, even those who oppose Assad and support the rebellion against him, but the protests stopped there.

Iran is deeply concerned with the fate of the Assad regime, which has allowed Syrian territory to serve as a conduit for Iranian weapons and other support to reach their proxy, Hezbollah. Tehran has supplied cash and weapons to help the Syrian government in its efforts to crush the anti-Assad revolt.

Salehi warned of the possible repercussions if the government in Damascus was to fall.

“The fallout from a vacuum in Syria will have adverse effects on its neighbours and the whole region,” he said. “There will be serious repercussions from a vacuum. It will be grave and nobody can predict the results.”

Who is the spokesman? Israeli MOSSAD for certain. The truth is more than likely Obama and Bibi hatched this scheme on their recent visit. In the TRIAD, Barry Soetoro would relieve himself of this issue in order to proceed with a bipartisan screwing of the people in the gun grab, immigration and not force the neo-cons to press Benghazi or Fast & Furious.

I believe Obama gave Israel the green-light to airstrike the Syrian border not only to thwart any possible weapon shipments but to initiate a bogus story of retaliation. Israel will do what they always do and inflict damage on their own like the US does in order to bring the Palestinian into the mix again and further provoke the Iranians into the pretext for war.

The Wednesday hearings on Benghazi won’t offer the deeper crime of what happened but it will at least provide three whistleblowers who will affirm the intentional misleading of America to what the cotocrew already know as an arms transfer of WMD to Jihadists for the Syrian conflict.  I believe this was known during the Egyptian spring by Gaddafi that led to his demise. Charge d’Affairs  were neatly handled by Hillary Clinton and we know the  Benghazi ambassador had a secret meeting with a Turkish diplomat and why an armed  surveillance drone was present during the attack. I think it was more than a real-time viewing of a slaughter for the enjoyment of the psychopaths at the Pentagon but certainly a possible bonus.

Why these facts are not in the investigation and are still a mystery to many is simple to us.  There is no truth forthcoming but instead the usual triad, where the event is staged, interpreted and resolved in favor of the left and right wings of the fascist phoenix that continues to rise in a market of lies and death. I expect just another theater in the triangle for partisan sheeple  while America sinks ever lower into the abyss.


    • Integrity? Kerry? Hillblurry Climton? Hahahaha…
      Sure, and the Sun goes out when it sinks in the ocean at sunset and has to be re-lit each morning by the torch fairy.

      There has been a lot of good analysis on Global Research…that film had nothing to do with any “protests”…it was definitely a planned attack and someone who knew too many secrets had to die in it…

      I am not sure why..?

      • Issa has accomplished nothing with fast & Furious. The Stone Wall has held firm. The CIA states no witnesses were blocked from testimony.

        Ha! Ambassador Stevens was the first. Sibel Edmonds knows the drill. When it’s testimony time, talking points are just plots on the vector of a conspiracy, avoiding the basis of fact.

        Stevens, a player in the game, lost his life in a sacrifice. No different from Saddam, Bhutto, Ben Ali, Mubarek, Gaddafi, etc.

        Don’t get phucked on phonics

        Barry Soetoro has managed to take democracy to a new level with the Brotherhood’s help. What’s on the MSM is talking points to a Turkey. These events are fabricated to take the eye off the most massive power shift to muslim extremism. Anybody potentially with power enough to shed some light on this is executed.

        These are just two freelancers who were in the way. The stories (fiction) of motivations are ludicrous as are they all. Benghazi will be no different. Only dead fish swim with the stream.

  7. CSPAN online was very cooperative today during the hearings. There is enough here to put them away. Clearly stand down was an order and not a fact of ability to intervene. People were told not to talk, act or go outside of chain of command. Dempsey is guilty.

    Eighteen days – 18 DAYS. George Bush made it to New Orleans faster than the real authorities. Coto could have scrubbed the crime scene in 18 days.

  14. This book by James Sully – ILLUSIONS, may be difficult to get into at first. Not only is Sully a 19th century writer, lending some bit of the alien to the language – but he is a meticulous writer and builds each point in such a thorough manner that it seems indefinitely tedious.

    And yet there were some things at the trudge of a beginning that struck my curiosity. So I scanned along to a point where he finally begins his dissertation on illusions – and begins getting into the meat of what he is talking about. I have to say that it is worth reaching this point with him, as it is truly a fascinating study.

    [One more stumbling block is that it appears this book is the result of a scanning program that has been reproduced as HTML raw, without editing, and there are weird typos here and there. Most of the words can be ascertained by context…some however are complete guesswork.]



    • Here’s a layman’s take on all this…..

      Ya know, when I was a kid I had a sneaking suspicion that THIS is not how everything is suppoed to be (wars, hunger, shitting in our own nest, mega rich folks messing up the planet) and after a few years of believing the good verses evil stuff i slowly became more aware that there must be a strategy behind the destruction but couldn’t figure out at first why it should be so. I was under the false impression that we had benevolent leaders looking after their flock. Ha! Maybe it’s because I’ve never tasted being rich and powerful. It took me a very short time to understand that ‘benevolent leader’ is an oxymoron; big money and the associated power corrupts. There probably is a few of us humans that can handle massive wealth but you never hear from them coccooned in their palatial homes insulated from reality, living the dream (yeah, right) Which brings me to your quote from T&S but I wanted to apply it here because finding coto has been the cherry on the icing of the cake of my thoughts about how everything REALLY is. Thanks cotto.

      “I see our human situation as not having changed to any great degree throughout that history – indeed from the time of our career in the African savannas. The race has experienced great leaps in technology to be sure, but has remained essentially the same creature, physically, and mentally/emotionally.

      A friend once said to me that ‘man’ needs just 4 things; food, clothing, shelter and someone to mate with. All the rest is BAGGAGE. So I did a taste test of his theory and lived 25 years in Thailand on a beach on an island. I lived simply. I had nothing. Sure, it wasn’t hunting and gathering in the African savannas, but I had no baggage. (the internet is great though Lol) …I was happy. I learnt that having less is best. I’m back in NZ 2 years with nothing but I’m still happy, its fantastic. I have NO worries. I couldn’t imagine what it must be like as a HUMAN to be super rich and powerful, being busy with business, having no privacy because you must have staff and accountants and meetings and security. Having all that baggage, worrying about it. No real happiness, just shallow crap you buy with your money. No empathy. No smelling of the roses.

      There is no GOOD reason why THIS is how things are supposed to be in this world. Only bad reasons.

      Thanks again coto for putting it all together.

      I am fascinated by James Sully’s Illusions. So far I’ve spent an hour on it. Hey, it is a deep read, love the language and it dovetails nicely with what I’ve been thinking about. it’s right up my alley.

      • Far out Al,

        I am so glad that you can get into James Sully. I was, to put it in modern jazz style; ‘Like WTF dood?’ struggling through the introductory pages…and finally like a sudden back-flip I became ‘Victorian’ {linguistically} and really started to ‘grok’ the subject in the medical smock — t’was me as well as thee…now I see.

        Yes too as well and also, about COTO, it is an oasis in the desert of the stasis, like a love affair between a human and a leopard; ne’er a dull hamlet, nor unturned egg.

      • Simple is better for certain AWS. Great philosophy. It also clears the mind for better observations and perception. I always thought about the benefit of living homeless.

        I had a relationship with one who was a broker. He made lots of money and left his wife and kids for the street. I could never get any sense he was on dope or booze, just high on an unrestricted ‘being’.

        It was an eye-opener for me and I have tried to adopt it as much as I can, but not to the point of bailing on family and losing the library. The complications provided by the committee keep the rats running. I assume the purpose is to keep them off the purpose.

    It is said by certain philosophers that perception, as a whole, is an illusion, inasmuch as it involves the fiction of a real thing independent of mind, yet somehow present to it in the act of sense-perception.

    But this is a question for philosophy, not for science. Science, including psychology, assumes that in perception there is something real, without inquiring what it may consist of, or what its meaning may be. And though in the foregoing analysis of perception, viewed as a complex mental phenomenon or psychical process, I have argued that a percept gets its concrete filling up out of elements of conscious experience or sensations, I have been careful not to contend that the particular elements of feeling thus represented are the object of perception or the thing perceived. It may be that what we mean by a single object with its assemblage of qualities is much more than any number of such sensations ; and it must be confessed that, on the face of it, it seems to be much more. And however this be, the question, What is meant by object ; and is the common persuasion of the existence of such an entity in the act of perception accurate or illusory ? must be handed over to philosophy. ~Sully
