Speaking today at a security conference in Tel Aviv, Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon declared that he “prefers ISIS” over Iran, and does not consider ISIS to pose a serious threat to the Israeli state, saying Iran will always remain “the main enemy.”
Ya’alon insisted that he believes ISIS will be defeated at any rate, what with the US launching strikes on their oil supplies, but that he’d much rather see ISIS rule all of Syria, and consequently be directly on Israel’s border, than have the pro-Iran government remain in power.
Ya’alon’s declaration was a lot more public than most, but not really outside of long-standing Israeli policy, and the defense minister laid out a similar argument around the notion of an apocalyptic “clash of civilizations” between Israel and the Shi’ite world, believing that the Sunnis, like ISIS, are practically on their side.
Not that ISIS sees it that way. While they’ve been more focused on attacking Shi’ites than attacking Israel so far, they’ve made multiple statements about their plans to expand into Palestine and fight against Israeli forces. Israel’s military chief warned only yesterday that ISIS may soon turn its focus to attacking Israel and Jordan.

This is not new. Israel’s plan has always been to create chaos and ethnic and religious conflict in the ME so they can maintaine their military dominance and colonize even more land. Israel and the Saudis (both essentially theocracies) have created an alliance to promote a common goal of dominating the ME and suppressing any democratic movements.
The biggest shame and outrage is that the U.S. calls both these nations “allies”.

Nonsense and talk is cheap. ISIS must maintain the fiction that Israel is their enemy to fool the fools. ISIS never attacks Israel, only Christians and Muslims. Moreover, Israel risks life and limb to enter Syria, rescue, and provide medical care for these same terrorists. If ISIS is not directly controlled by Israel, it might as well be since their goal of territorial mayhem is identical.
Yeah, yaa’aa]a”alon, we know, you and your ilk love IS and you’re just as ignorant as your US counterparts of the concept of blowback.

Ol’ Joe Biden Rips Loose and Blows the Lid Off Who Armed ISIS – Nov 18, 2015
He’s never put his foot in his mouth like this…
Shooting his mouth off at a Harvard Q&A with students last Thursday, Biden said:
“… our biggest problem is our allies – our allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria. The Turks were great friends – and I have the greatest relationship with Erdogan, which I just spent a lot of time with – the Saudis, the Emiratis, etc. But what were they doing? They were so determined to take down Assad and essentially have a proxy Sunni-Shia war, what did they do?
They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad, except that the people who were being supplied were Al Nusra and Al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.
Now you think I’m exaggerating – take a look… Now we have – the President’s been able to put together a coalition of our Sunni neighbors, because America can’t once again go into a Muslim nation and be seen as the aggressor – it has to be led by Sunnis to go and attack a Sunni organization.”
When Joe Biden gets candid, he really lets rip. . . And he named names: Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, specifically. Others – like Qatar – are undoubtedly complicit too, but Biden’s comments were made off-the-cuff during the question and answer period following his prepared statement.

Now you know whose creation ISIS is
Hamas was the creation of Mossad, so there is form here! When ISIS is sitting in the Golan Heights and realises that Jerusalem is but 60 miles away down they will come, about half way between those to points is in fact Armageddon! For years we have heard Netenyahu dribble on about the Mullahs of Iran and their Messianic complex, however he fails to think about Wahhabi’s and their Messianic complex, that also is way more blood thirsty than Iran! Israel is treating wounded Al Nusra fighters Al Nusra is the New name for Al Qaeda, Isis is a breakaway of Al Nusra their ideologies are identical!
Wait….supporting a terrorist organization, does this means that
Uncle Sam will canceled their EBT card?
The Israelis managed to be friends with Iran during the time of the Shah, but like the USA seem unable to think, to be flexible, to realize things change, to try to have some sort of understanding. This kind of talk just ensures peace is never possible-another similarity to US policy. Never think of anyone but your own narrow interests.
and what nation wanted and gave orders to USA, for 7 middle East countries to be destroyed? Oh! weren’t the bad guys in Saddam’s Sunnis that were ousted and now are Israel’s favorites?
ISIS like other family owned tyrannical fiefdoms make the obligatory ritualistic anti Zionist rants to keep the sheep in tow
The Israeli preference for ISIS over Iran will reverberate in Washington. Israel–now Washington–sets Amerian policy in the Middle East.
At least he’s open about it. In a two-sided war, you can only back one side to win. In Syria, it’s either Assad or the head-choppers.
The difficult thing is, though, that if Yaalon is with the head-choppers, he’s on the other side. He’s proposing alliance with the organization that is sending suicide bombers all over the world.
The friend of my enemy is… still my friend? For how long?
