    Addressing the flurry of Israeli attacks against Syria in recent days, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah says he believes Israel is deliberately trying to help ISIS in an effort to prevent ISIS from suffering outright defeat in Syria amid growing pressure.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claimed the Friday attacks, which started the latest flurry, targeted a weapons convoy intended for Hezbollah forces, who are in Syria fighting alongside the government against ISIS and other rebel forces.

    Nasrallah, however, said that Israel has been using “all kinds of excuses” throughout the war to intervene, and that what they are really afraid of is an ISIS defeat, because that would mean a Hezbollah victory. This is largely in keeping with Israel’s own narrative on the Syrian Civil War, despite the pretense of neutrality.

    Israeli officials have repeatedly expressed concern that the survival of the Assad government would mean that a Shi’ite ally of Iran would remain along their border. Moreover, last summer Israel’s Maj. Gen. Herzi Halevy, their military intelligence chief, publicly declared that Israel does not want to see ISIS defeated in the war, and prefers ISIS over the Assad government.

      • In an age of such technological sophistication, ISIS must be the only enemy in modern history that can parade around in the open and never be caught between the crosshairs of the western military machine.

        “inconceivable”

        Of course Israel (and the US, Britain, etc., Saudi, etc.) wants to keep their ba*t*rd children free to play their deadly games. Oh, but when the children finally turn on their parents. How sweet such divine justice will be…

        São esses canalhas que ajudam a manter o “ISIS”, mercenários treinados e armados por USA, Arabia Saudita, Qatar e outros pilantras… deixam os mercenários fazer o trabalho sujo e ficam de fora, esperando destruir o país para tomar conta e anexar… querem controlar as reservas minerais do Oriente Médio, para monopolizar o comércio de energia com a Europa… mas os mercenários perderam a guerra, porque os sírios, com apoio da Russia, Irã, Hezbollah e curdos, deram um cacete nos mercenários vagabundos, que só querem dinheiro… não têm nenhuma motivação de pátria ou religião… parecem com os sionistas de Israel…escravagistas da NWO…

        AS SUBORDINATES OF THE ROTHSCHILD-BILDERBERG EMPIRE, WASHINGTON, ISRAEL AND SAUDI ARABIA BUILT AND OPERATE AL QAEDA, ISIS AND THE OTHER TERRORIST GROUPS OPERATING IN SYRIA (and elsewhere) TO DESTABILIZE COUNTRIES AND ESTABLISH A “CALIPHATE” THAT WOULD “COOPERATE” WITH THE EMPIRE.

        LIKE THE TERRORIST GROUPS THEMSELVES, THAT CALIPHATE WOULD BE JUST AS OPPRESSIVE AND VICIOUS AS ITS PARENT (established by Jewish/British bankers, 100 years ago) – SAUDI ARABIA. SAUDI ARABIA AND THE TERROR GROUPS SPAWNED THEY ARE THE GUTTER SCRAPINGS OF ISLAM – EQUAL IN ALL RESPECTS TO THE ZIONIST DISEASE.
        The Rothschilds created Zionism, the Saudi “royals” and the Bolshevik “Revolution” as vehicles to expand its power. Bolshevism (Communism) failed. Zionism (Judeo-Fascism) has, so far, partially succeeded.

        ISIS’s defeat has long been all but assured. And of course Israel wants you to bleed, Nasrallah. You’re their enemy.
