BBC: Iran is establishing military base in Syria 50km from Israeli Golan

BBC satellite images show construction activity at a site 14km south of Damascus where a dozen large low-rise buildings, apparently for housing soldiers and vehicles, were built in recent months. It is not clear whether the buildings are currently occupied. Analysts estimate that up to 500 troops could be accommodated at the site, which lies about 50km from the Israeli Golan. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has said more than once: “Iran wants to establish itself militarily in Syria, right next to Israel. Israel will not let that happen.”
This report has not been confirmed by any other source.

    This is a very bad infidel joke!
    There is no such a thing like an Iranian army base south of Damascus. Yes, there are some revolutionary guards on site, but less than 500, posibily even less than 475.

      A guy is swimming in the sea. A sea monster grabs him by the balls and asks: “2 plus or 2 minus?” The scared guy, obviously, chooses 2 plus and rushes to the shore. With 4 balls runs to his friend and tells the story. The friend advises: “go back into to the sea and if that happens again, choose 2 minus.” The guy goes back, the sea monster grabs him by the balls and asks: “4 plus or 4 minus?”

    FAQs for pre-screening candidates for UN secretary

    Q: Are the Arabs settlements on the occupied Jewish territories good, legitimate, and very holy?
    A: Yes, yes, and yes! Ofcourse, all Jewish holy places on Jewish territories are not holy at all, this is widely accepted by all imams and ayatollahs, plus the Security Council and UN as a whole.

    Q: Are the cities of Mecca and Medina Arab settlements on occupied Jewish territories?
    A: Yes, but for disputes with Jews the only applicable law is the sharia law, such is the will of Allah, widely accepted by all imams and ayatollahs, plus the Security Council and UN as a whole.

    Q: Is the Black Stone stolen from the jews or an Israeli property?
    A: In the old jewish city of Mecca, the Kaaba itself was a Jewish temple and the Black Stone inside was placed there by Jews which could be seen as seemingly Israeli property. However, suddenly Allah made these all Arab-holy by misterious magic, and so there was no steal or rapt.

    Q: What about the Al-Aqsa mosque, and why has lost its Qibla value?
    A: This mosque was built with Jewish property stones, on the place of a Jewish temple, but such a mosque is much smaller than a whole city, which implies there was less magic involved.

    Q: What to do if some return or compensation is required?
    A: Nothing! This is because the Jewish holy places are not holy at all, while any holy Arab place is indeed very very holy, this is widely accepted as above.

    Q: About Vatican, is there any fatwa concerning Vatican?
    A: No, no fatwa for now. But, in Vatican there are a lot of relics, gold, and historical artefacts wich may turn to have an islamic value, and so muslims may get lucky in the near future, based of what’s widely accepted today.

    The fish is stinking:
    1) BBC is known for its anti-Israel stance

    2) The “new” buildings cant be new – check the trees in between…

    So – looks like BBC wants to push Israel
    Into problems…

    Like someone said :
    The brits lost their empire – now they are about to lose their last island…

    He who curses Israel – he will be cursed
    By the God of Israel.
