    You must have read a different version of Bibi’s statement than I did TD, I read him saying that Israel is in a true war for survival and will do none of the things you propose, they will fight. Whatever the PA does is meaningless for the Bantustans they oversee and Israel will never give [...]

    I’m suprised by your comment, CT you are usually well informed about the ME. Google, ISIS Gaza, it will show reports from months ago about an ISIS ralley and show an ISIS fighter cell in full military regalia. On 7/1 the Supporters Of The Islamic State in the West Bank claimed responsibility for the three [...]

    Islamic State operatives are already in Gaza and the West Bank organizing Palestinians for the coming struggle. The Palestinians and the Islamic State share the same goal, the liberation of Palestine and the destruction of Israel. No one else in the ME or elsewhere will or have offered the Palestinians what they desire, the chance [...]

    This statement, by Netanyahu, reaffirms the point I have been trying to make that the Gaza conflict is about something much larger than some rockets and tunnels or even Hamas, it is directed at the real threat, the Islamic State and Palestinians joining forces to liberate Palestine. Israel has never faced a threat such as [...]

    The right to vote in a Democracy is fundamental but we don’t live in a Democracy we live under a Oligarchy. Under an Oligarchy the trappings of democracy are used to maintain the control of the Ruling Class. By exercising your right to vote under our system you are aiding and abetting the Oligarchs, this is why they spend billions of dollars to herd the rubes into the voting pens.

    I was too tired last night to recognize this topic as concern trolling about some Christians not wanting to pay their Jiziya. When compared with the actual topic of this diary, the butchering of Palestinians by the Israelis this tragedy seems rather overblown.

  • Following the hype and propaganda in the headlines about Iraq usually leads to a more realistic assessment. On 6-28 the BBC parroted, before any battle, “Iraqi Army routes ISIS rebels” in Tikrit. On 7-16 Reuters announced “Iraqi Army retreats from Tikrit” to their base in Anja 8 klicks from Tikrit. It is difficult to get [...]

  • Occasionally through all the propaganda and spin some clarity emerges. Netanyahu stated, a few days ago, that Israel is fighting for it’s “Home” which is a small statement that explains much of what is happening.

    Hamas and the Palestinian people in Gaza and the West Bank are in no position to actually threaten Israel as Home so who is this statement directed to and who is this war actually aimed at?

    Supporters Of The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the killing of the three Israeli boys on 7-1, they also criticize Hamas for being too moderate and threaten to slaughter the Palestinian Authority. The only organization that has the potential to threaten Israel and its existence as Home is the Islamic State and they are in all of the occupied territories organizing for the Liberation of Palestine.

  • I don’t see this as a major problem because most of the Tribal and Local Leaders are already aligned with them. They may have to spend time training the large number of new recruits they are attracting but that must have been planned for and accounted for in the timetable for the attack on Baghdad.

  • The cartographers are going to be pissed when they are required to remove lines from their maps not add new ones as they did after the fall of the USSR. The Islamic State’s first phase was Take Down The Walls when they opened the prisons and they are now in the Take Down The Borders [...]

    Fear and confusion are rampant in Iraq and mistakes will be made. If these people go to Kurdistan they will be held in camps and they will definitely be unsafe in Baghdad with the Death Squads. Once the conquest is complete most of the displaced people will return to their homes and lives. I don’t [...]

  • I don’t know if you saw the report about the Sunni Tribal Leaders meeting and reaffirming their allegiance to the Islamic State. It was a public meeting and statement from Erbil in the heart of Kurdistan which is in the process of cutting its ties to Iraq. This meeting couldn’t have occurred where it did [...]

  • I’ve seen some wishful thinking and fantasy before but this scenario is beyond the pale. The only use that Shia militias have is to point there guns at Iraqi troops to keep them from deserting and maybe a Death Squad job here and there. I’ve seen pictures of the Militia recruits, young not too bright [...]

    I imagine Amerikans tell the pollsters they want democracy too just like the people in the ME but neither have any power to get what they desire and never will under the present power structure. If you want real democracy the first thing you do is eliminate the pollsters and then the politicians. Now you [...]

    What I want is irrelevant, Fair what the people of the Muslim World choose is their business. You are carrying a heavy load by not only judging the Islamic State but also dictating that the people there must want Western Democracy, the Gold Standard that only stupid people wouldn’t embrace. You as many others claim [...]

    I think this is a PR photo released by the Islamic State to promote their version of Shock and Awe. Is this part of the 15 hundred Iraqi Army deserters who were supposedly executed? It’s interesting that the UN listed about 400 Iraqi soldiers as being killed during this month in all engagements. What is [...]

    Funny thing, your Angry Arab turns out to be an Amerikan so his opinions, which I sometimes agree with, are suspect, just as any other Westerner’s opinions are. I’ve read many criticisms of the Caliph based on his one appearance and limited writing, most seem to be reactions based on fear of losing authority in [...]

    That may be true but I was commenting on more than one of Fair’s statements. With the amount of propaganda and lies being propagated it’s difficult to know the truth but many people seem ready to make judgments based on Western prejudices or perceived moral superiority. It’s not so much the fact of having a [...]

    I see the Exceptional Amerikan still thinks it’s his duty to judge the Other and guide them to adopting an acceptable form of Western Democracy because it has produced such wonders and freedoms for the enlightened masses.

    I agree that those who have been funding these varied groups were not aware of the possible consequences of their actions. What is clear is that the Islamic State is preeminent among these groups and is either conquering, absorbing or destroying them. This is the blowback you mention and the US and other countries are [...]
