Is a thick gaseous cloud hiding Russia’s first S-300 delivery to Syria?

As Israel celebrated its 70th anniversary, a Russian ship unloaded a suspect military cargo from a freighter at the Syrian port of Tartous. Was Moscow answering Israel’s celebration by delivering advanced S-300 air defense missiles as a show of support for Bashar Assad?
This not confirmed. However, DEBKAfile’s military sources report that the Russians undoubtedly took advantage of Israel’s preoccupation with its Independence Day revelries to deliver advanced weapons systems for the Syrian army. The Russian ship docked in Tartous on Wednesday afternoon, April 18. Before unloading it, they positioned in the Russian section of the port giant compressors which spewed thick gaseous clouds over the operation to hide it from oversight by Israel’s surveillance planes, drones and satellites.  This tactic intensified Israel’s suspicion that the cargo included S-300 weapons systems.
On Tuesday, April 17, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow had refused Syria’s demand for the advanced S-300 missiles, but since the “appalling act of aggression” committed by the US, France and Britain, “Moscow was ready to consider any means to help the Syrian army curb further aggression.”

According to our military sources, the Russian vessel was sighted crossing through the Bosporus near Istanbul on Monday, i.e., just two days after the Western strike on Syria’s chemical sites. No attempt was made to conceal the presence on its decks of military equipment, which looked like the command vehicles of missile batteries and radar apparatus. The ship was loaded at the Russian military port of Novorossiysk on the Black Sea.

    The fact that they’re concealing the weapons….probably means they’re NOT S-300.

        NFZ : LOL , me too, I can not stop laughing and even composed an anecdote!
        The Russian intelligence officer comes to the Defense Minister and says, and let’s transport the S-300 on that yellow ship to Syria tomorrow.
        Minister of Defense: why so urgently?
        In Israel tomorrow is the Independence Day!

          You weren’t laughing when Syria took out that old Israeli F-16 earlier and that was not even done with S-300! It’s better to be honest I’m dealings with neighbors and not flirt with hard core terrorists to advance national interest. Neighbors should be friends.

      What’s your theory that they hope the Israelis will launch another strike? With the object of taking out the s-300s before being made ready.
      The gaseous cloud is interesting because some optics have the capability of seeing through smoke.
      Why all the confusion on who did actually launch the last strike after the Chemical Attack?
      Are we finally and absolutely decided it was Israel?
      I saw speculation a US Destroyer was used as a decoy and the missiles were fired from elements of the USN in the Red Sea!

      It allows you to murder innocent people with impunity in the Gaza Strip or in Palestine. That is the God who guides you? A god who indulges in human carnage. All religions are good for nothing more than to anesthetize the conscience of men, so they can kill without blushing.

        There are no innocent people. That doesn’t mean killing them is ok with God. You are confused. Just because God has a relationship with Israel, it does not mean that he condones of everything they do. Israel and her sisters are going through a difficult time. But make no mistake, God will always be with Israel and against those who try to destroy her.

    Its time that the world let the Zionists fight their own battles. Israel is nether moral nor supported in the Torah until the Messiah returns and gathers up his people. Continued support for this the non biblical Zionist movement will bring nothing but misery to the Middle East and the world. It time for the Western public to wake up and understand that Zionism is not Judaism.

    Visit True Torah Jews and educate your selves before the Zionist lobby causes any more harm to your nations, the people of the Middle East and the Jewish people.

      You or your descendants one day will run from your beloved exile, forced by the Habishter himself to ascend to Israel or die, because the final poseik in the exile has always been the non Jew, sent by the Habishter to push him back home to Israel. Then what will you say as the world closes its doors and fee or flee no longer works? What will you do when the USA turns on the Jews? When England and France do too? What will you do then?

        Chavakuk – Habakkuk – Chapter 2
        3For there shall be another vision for the appointed time; and He shall speak of the end, and it shall not fail; though it tarry, wait for it, for it shall surely come; it shall not delay. גכִּ֣י ע֚וֹד חָזוֹן֙ לַמּוֹעֵ֔ד וְיָפֵ֥חַ לַקֵּ֖ץ וְלֹ֣א יְכַזֵּ֑ב אִם־יִתְמַהְמַהּ֙ חַכֵּה־ל֔וֹ כִּי־בֹ֥א יָבֹ֖א לֹ֥א יְאַחֵֽר:
        For there shall be another vision for the appointed time: A prophet shall yet arise at the end of the years, to whom a vision shall be revealed concerning when the appointed time shall be for the downfall of Babylon and the redemption of Israel.
        and He shall speak of the end: The speech that He shall say to him concerning the end of Babylon, (Jer. 29: 10) “For at the completion of seventy years of Babylon.” וְיָפֵחַ is an expression of speech; and there are many uses of this root with similar meaning in the Book of Proverbs. Since speech is only the wind emanating from the mouth, he [the writer of the Scriptures] calls it פִּיחַ, blowing, and he calls it wind, e.g., (Ps. 33:6) “And with the wind of His mouth all their host.”
        and it shall not fail; though it tarry: it shall not fail to come, though that appointed time may take long to come.
        wait for it for…; it shall not delay: at all after the seventy years. This clause can also be explained to mean: though he tarry, meaning the prophet Jeremiah. Jonathan renders: the prophecy is written and explained in the Book of the Torah. He translated כְּתֹב as כָּתוּב. It has already been alluded to in the Torah (Lev. 26:34): “Then shall the land placate [God concerning] its Sabbaths.” Israel sinned by violating seventy Sabbatical Years, in which they did not release the land, and, corresponding to them, they were exiled therefrom for seventy years. And so it is stated in II Chronicles (36:21): “Until the land placated its Sabbaths; all the days it lay waste, it rested to complete seventy years.” And so you find in Ezekiel (4:5): “And I have given you the years of their iniquity according to the number of days, three hundred and ninety days… (verse 6) I gave you a day for a year.” And Scripture says (verse 4): “And you lie on your left side, etc.” You are found saying that Israel provoked God for three hundred and ninety years until the Ten Tribes were exiled, and the tribe of Judah sinned for forty years, and from the time the Ten Tribes were exiled until the destruction of Jerusalem are the twenty-two years of Manasseh. The rest of Manasseh’s years were spent in repentance, for it is stated concerning him (II Kings 21:2f.) “And he did what was evil, etc.,… as Ahab… had made.” Therefore we count Manasseh’s evil years according to the number of Ahab’s years, and he reigned for twenty-two years. With two years of his son Amon’s reign, and eleven of Jehoiakim’s, and eleven of Zedekiah’s, the evil years total forty-six, and this prophecy was said to Ezekiel in the fifth year of Zedekiah. In any case, we find the time of their sinning four hundred and thirty years, for after this prophecy they tarried there six years. [I.e., the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin remained in the land for six more years] In four hundred years, there are eight Jubilee Years, and in every Jubilee cycle there are seven Release Years, making a total of fifty-six Release Years and eight years consecrated as Jubilee Years making all together sixty-four. In thirty-six years there are five Release Years, totaling sixty-nine consecrated years, and this final Jubilee year is also counted in the number, since it was not completed because of their iniquity. And here, this is what the Holy One, blessed be He, said to Habakkuk: A vision is already written in the Torah, but it is sealed. You write and explain on the tablets, for a vision of this appointed time will yet be revealed.
        and He shall speak: It is an expression [denoting] speech, and there are many similar instances throughout the book of Proverbs. Since speech is merely wind that goes out of the mouth, it is called פיח or רוח, wind, as in (Psalms 33:6) “and with the breath of His mouth, all their host.”

        read it and weep. Yisrael Meir Kagan said the Zionists are the descendants of Amalek.

        In the chant of Balaam at Numbers, 24:20, Amalek was called the ‘first of the nations’,

        20. When he saw Amalek, he took up his parable and said, “Amalek was the first of the nations, and his fate shall be everlasting destruction.”

        Amos – Chapter 6

        1. Woe to those who are at ease in Zion and to those who are secure in the mountain of Samaria, those called the first of the nations, and the house of Israel has come to them.

        2. Proceed to Calneh and see, and go from there to the great Hamath, and go down to Gath of the Philistines-are they better than these kingdoms, or is their border greater than your border?

        3. You, who bring yourselves closer to the day of evil, and you bring near the dwelling amidst violence.

        4. Those who lie on couches of ivory and stretch out on their beds, and eat lambs of the flock and calves out of the stall.

        Tehillah 97

        1. The Lord has reigned, the earth will exult; many islands will rejoice.
        The Lord has reigned: when He takes the kingdom from Amalek and from his descendants.

        the earth will exult: This is what Ezekiel said (35:14): “When the whole earth rejoices, I shall make you desolate.” He prophesied this concerning Amalek.

        2. Cloud and thick darkness are around Him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of His throne.

        3. Fire will go before Him and will burn His enemies all around.

        Fire will go before Him: in the war of Gog and Magog, for it is written concerning his war (Ezek. 38:22): “And I shall plead against him with pestilence and with blood, and rain bringing floods and great hailstones, fire and brimstone.”

        4. His lightnings illuminated the world; the earth saw and quaked.

        His lightnings: His brilliant lights, an expression of (Ezek. 21:15): “It is polished that it may glitter”

        5. Mountains melted like wax from before the Lord, from before the Master of all the earth.

        melted like wax: as it is written (Ezek. 38:20): “and the mountains will be thrown down, and the cliffs will fall.”

        God’s omnipotence and divine judgment

        “Amos saw God as personally in control of all the world. Amos made clear that, contrary to the view within pagan religious and among the majority of Israelites, God was not only the God of Israel but of all the world. While the average Israelite may have remembered with national pride the special place of Israel’s exodus from Egypt, Amos maintained that God was also behind the early movements of the Philistines and Arameans (Amos 9:7)”
        Amos believed that “God is Lord over all human history and that all men are equal in his sight. By this, he implies that any other nation could stand in the same place of privilege which Israel had known. Both God’s concern in love and his concern in judgment are without discrimination. Neither geographical limitations nor race matter in the least when God seeks to accomplish his purpose.”
        “No modern interpreter has denied that he taught that God is ethical to the extent that he cannot be affected by ceremonial as such. “For Amos … religion consists not in ritual but in righteousness. YHWH, God of justice, demands right living not oblations.”
        “Amos thus proclaimed an ethical God so clearly that only ethical relations between men could assure divine favor; and nothing in his words indicates that he recognized any other approach to God. Such an approach naturally involves worship – a term that includes the whole process of man’s communion with his God; even in ancient Israel worship was never confined to sacrifices and offerings, as witness Jacob at Bethel, Moses before the burning bush, Elijah on Mt. Horeb. Man also has never failed to devise new forms of approach to God to accord with his changed conceptions of Deity.”

      As Israel celebrated its 70th anniversary -that’s great but apparently the pro-Western Israel does not know the character of the Russians. The pro-American elite thinks of Russians as about mean scoundrels, who only dream of stealing a piece of cake when the Great Israel turns away his eye. I hope Russia is not accused of Independence of Israel?

        You are correct that the Semitic Jews originate from the Land of Israel. However 95% of the Jews in Israel have no Semitic ancestry. These non Semitic Jews (the Anasazi Jews from Europe) originate from the Khazarians which is about 2000KM to the north in the area of the Black Sea. This is sad and amazing at the same time when one considers that the true Semitic people are the Palestinians who’s land has been stolen and imprisoned in open air prisons by a people who have never inhabited the Land of Israel.

        The Khazar thesis gained global prominence when Prof. Shlomo Sand of Tel Aviv University published “The Invention of the Jewish People” in 2008. In that book, which became a best seller and was translated into several languages, Sand argued that the “Jewish people” is an invention, forged out of myths and fictitious “history” to justify Jewish ownership of the Land of Israel.

        As for those who claim to be “Jews,” who insist that they and their race alone are “God’s Chosen” and have the Promise, Jesus did not mince words. He said, twice in Revelation, that these were not His people. They are liars, “blasphemers,” said our Lord and Saviour:

        “I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” (Revelation 2:9)

        “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.” (Revelation 3:9)

        Do you, dear Saints, believe what Jesus Christ said? Do you believe the Word of God? Do you have the Promise given only to those of Faith? Are ye of Christ? Then, says the Scripture, regardless of your race, are ye “Abraham’s Seed and heirs according to the Promise” (Galatians 4:28-29).

        This is the indisputable Word of God, and now science—DNA Science—has confirmed its amazing truth. DNA Science, the mathematics of God, has confirmed that Jesus was absolutely telling us the truth: “…them which say they are Jews” are not Jews but are the Synagogue of Satan.

            Some people are susceptible to thinking Israel’s relationship with the Bedouin Arabs designating themselves as “Palestinians”, can be analogyzed to England’s relationship with the Irish. The two relationships are not analogous; not even close.

          The “Ashkenazi Jews are really Khazars” libel has roots similar to “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” libel; both were concocted in the most fervent Jew hating quarters of Tsar Nicholas II’s court in the late 19th century.

    Syria: Russia’s Vietnam. Putin should be looking for the exit, not deepening his commitments to a failed regime complicit in war crimes.

    If this is considered a threat by Israel. Dont be surprised if they neutralize the threat. One way or the other it will be removed or contained. Russia should never ever forget that the Israelis are fighting for their home and survival. Its now perfectly clear that the bad old days are back in earnest. If Israel is harmed in anyway by a hostile action that is openly assisted by Russia, then its own assets are going to be targeted and dealt with.

        Saying that would be the next dumbest thing, next to actually doing it.

    I’ve seen it once already. Mighty Soviet Union was helping arabs, even soviet pilots were flying the planes. And what happened to Soviet Union? Does anybody remember?
    Mr. Putin was C minus student in school and hated History. Too bad for him and his people.
    As for S300, these systems were designed in mid 70s.

      In the 18th century Peter the Great understood Russia’s destiny was with the West. Russia has been Christian since 986 AD. Throwing in their lot with radical Islamist regimes is a world historic mistake.

    It is now time for the Syrian opposition to receive MANPADS in response to Russia and their direct attacks on them. Russia does not keep any weapons from its allies Assad, Iran, Hezbollah, etc. Thus, the Syrian opposition should be given what it needs to defend itself from direct Russian attacks.

      be quiet, hillary. that was a bad idea in 2012, and in 2018 it’s even stupider, to give terrorist groups the means to shoot down airliners. just ask ambassador stevens.

    Israel could not or did not help the Kurds stand on Kerkuk… Israel had chance to stick their finger to Iran but they either could not do anything or they did not result does not change… Kerkuk has been taken by Iran. Today Iran is surfing and real threat to Jewish State nearby Israel and they are able to stand to set up their facilities and interest on the region. Funny thing is how come Jewish let this happen? while Israel had real chance to gain Kurds for their interest, they let the Iranian forces to takeover the oil rich city… Today they complain for up-comings… What I do not understand is, how come Iranians floods the all kinds of military equipments to its proxies (hasd’i al shabi, hizbullah, iraqi army, esad regime, hauthies in yemen..) but Israel is not able to do the same for Kurds? or Saudi Arabia they are under constant rocket attack but they do not get together to change the game in Middle East for real

    The big Question is how far will the S-300 go in providing undoubted air defence? how effective is it against F35,F22 raptor and B-2 spirit bomber?

    @IDF There was plenty of time to sink it
    The mediterranian sea is deep so one could have sent a vaccum bomb when the ship was at a deep spot.
    Torpedos make nasty holes one can proof. But a vacuum bomb 20m under the ship simply causes the hull to break. Bad quality ship overloaded and so on.
    But dont get caught.

    So go and learn from it and develop water weapons that emit a lot of fine gas bubbles that reduce the weight of water by half and make a loaded ship sink. Like bermuda triangle legend.

    Nobody can proof an assault if done right.
    Bubbles are better than broken hull.
    Go and research its not that difficult.
    Eg. Take lots of fine magnesium powder that forms hydrogen in water. May be ignited at surface to fake fire on the ship at will.
    Lots of stuff can be done.
