mwolverine saidIn some conspiracy corners, the worst of the worst is al-Nusra, because they are (allegedly) supported by Israel.
Why would Israel supports Al Nusra Front (al-Qaeda) terrorist group in Syria?
It does NOT.
Israel has NOT funded, trained or armed JN.
It HAS provided HUMANITARIAN AID.
Both to civilians and combatants, as governed by the Geneva Conventions.
Sam> If Israel supports Al-Nusra Front, then Israel is bad as Hizballah and Al-Nusra Front.
Except it doesn't (more below) and as per your own source, al-Nusra has only killed 356 civilians while Hizbullah has fought with the Assad regime which has killed 183,827 civilians.
For every civilian killed by al-Nusra, Hizbullah and the regime have killed more than 500.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3315347/Watch-heart-pounding-moment-Israeli-commandos-save-Islamic-militants-Syrian-warzone-risking-lives-sworn-enemies.html
|| The casualty – who doesn't look older than 20 – is losing blood fast. He has been shot in the intestines and the liver, and has a deep laceration in his left ankle. After putting him on an emergency drip, the commandos stretcher him back to the armoured car and head back to Israel.
|| Almost nothing is known about the Syrian as he is wheeled into emergency surgery 40 minutes after the rescue. He may be a member of a relatively moderate Islamist group, or he may be a jihadi. For its part, Israel says it either does not gather, or does not disclose, this information.
|| MailOnline witnessed Israeli army medics treating a sick two-month-old baby and a middle-aged man who had suffered a heart attack, both of whom were evacuated across the Syrian border by the commandos. The rescue of the baby girl was particularly poignant. Her older brother had died of a rare bone disease, and her mother feared that she was showing symptoms of the same disorder. Distraught, the woman decided to brave the dangers of the border and appeal to the enemy for help.
|| 'Israel is a world leader in providing humanitarian assistance, both in the Middle East and around the world,' he said. He also pointed out that this is not the first time the Jewish State has given medical care to those bent on its destruction and their families.
|| In October, a Tel Aviv hospital treated Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' brother-in-law, and last year it treated the daughter of the Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.
|| MailOnline was given access to interview Syrian militants at the Ziv Medical Centre in Safed, northern Israel, one of a number of hospitals at which they are treated... The casualties lavished praise on Israel. 'I will not fight against Israel in the future. Israel looks after wounded people better than the Arabs. The Arabs are dogs,' said a wiry rebel fighter who gave his name as Ahmed, 23, who was recovering from a gunshot wound to the groin.
|| 'Before I came here, I wouldn't have said this. But there are many people who got injured and came to Israel for treatment, and they told me about it. I feel safe here in Israel. But when I am well again, I will go back and fight.'
|| Another rebel, 20-year-old Mohammed, whose leg had been all but destroyed by fire from a Russian-made 'Dushka' heavy machine gun, agreed. 'Thanks to Israel for letting me in,' he said, eyeing the surgical frame supporting his shattered leg. 'The butcher Assad is my enemy. Israel is not my enemy. The one who treats you is not your enemy.' As soon as he was well enough, he added, he too intended to go back to Syria to take up arms again.
|| The Israeli doctor in charge of their treatment, Russian-born Professor Alexander Lerner – a leading expert in treating war injuries – did not disguise his delight at these responses.
'We are trying to build peace with our neighbours and win their hearts and minds,' he said. 'There are now 2,000 Syrians who have had their lives saved by Israel. We hope that this will change their life position. In the future, they will be more friendly to Israel and they won't want to fight us.'
Oooh, just shows you how "evil" those Israelis are, eh?
|| According to one senior Israeli army officer, Israel's humanitarian mission may also be part of a security strategy, aiming to 'keep the northern border quiet and our soldiers safe' by using medical treatment as an 'insurance policy'. 'The Syrians will not strike us because they know we'd stop helping them,' Lieutenant Colonel Malka told MailOnline. 'They are desperate for our medical help. They have no doctors, not even a vet. Once we treated a man who had been stitched up by a friend with a needle and thread. 'If they want our help to continue, they know they must stop anybody from attacking our soldiers and civilians.'
You remember this, right?
ATLF> Hezbollah has 150,000 missiles, thousands of which are precision-guided, can strike anywhere in Israel or Lebanon, and weigh in excess of one ton.
He's so proud of his terrorists, eh?
Then he's surprised that Israel doesn't want them on another front?
Back in 1982, after US envoy Phillip Habib brokered a truce between Israel and the PLO in Lebanon, the PLO then started firing at the same Israeli population centers from Syria (rather than Lebanon) claiming that didn't violate the ceasefire. (While claiming that the ceasefire precluded Israel from shooting back.)
Sam> Israel stills occupy small part of Lebanonhttp://www.un.org/press/en/2000/20000618.sc6878.doc.html
