For the second day, an IDF tank fires at Syrian fortification work in DMZ

An Israeli tank Sunday fired at fortification building conducted by a Syrian unit in the Golan demilitarized zone near Beit Jin for the second day running. DEBKAfile: The Syrian army and Hizballah have been fighting for weeks to capture the rebel-held Beit Jin pocket not far from IDF positions on Mt. Hermon. After all their assaults were thrown back, they are trying to build new launching posts opposite Beit Jin in the demilitarized zone, which is off-limits to Syrian troops by international law.

      Dear Bruce Lee: Your statement is a typical “value statement” meaning you “claim” something to satisfy your feelings regardless reality. If reality to be addressed nothing in the Israel’s history is in unequivocal contradiction with international law. Although, admittedly, there are issues which could be interpreted in contradictory ways. Those issues (I don’t want to list them here–anyone can honestly do research and find for oneself. I can advise where to look if there is a need). Said issues could be solved if not for pure Nazi driven ideology on the Arab side. Defeated aggressors pose as victims while others being not very interested in the truth just react on those lies. German Nazis in the summer of 1945 also were “victims” and were treated quite inhumanly on many accounts.They experienced hardships much-much worse than those of Arabs of Judea and Samaria nowadays. Plus, German hardships at the time related only partly to occupation but mostly — to ruin caused by the war. “Palestinians” do experience hard times related mostly to what their leadership does, say-99%. Israel just reacts to attacks when they happen. That is the entire story.

        One actually unnecessary note–just to finish up the juxtaposition. German Nazis were known to the world as aggressors defeated by wide international coalition. That is, they could claim to be victims as much as they wanted but nobody would paid attention. And they didn’t. Their conduct was ultimately cruel during the war but noble enough during the postwar trial. Arabs, on the contrary, attacked and were defeated as a coalition of 5 states (with considerable assistance of many other states) by single tiny state of Israel alone. Still, they manged to get compassion posing as victims, that is taking path of dishonor. They know it and this is why their political discourse is pure hysteria… supported by “progressives” world wide.

      Israel has not violated any international laws!
      BTW, it looks like the “small p” on your computer keyboard became “momentarily stuck” and requires your immediate attention.

    I want to correct a liable that is being perpetrated by some posters on this site in which they claim the Iranians commonly have sex with camels. My research finds that this is totally fictitious. It appears that Iranians typical use sheep and donkeys for that purpose.

    What part of the following line in the article did you not read?

    Which is off-limits to Syrian troops by international law.

    It is the SYRIAN troops who are violating International LAW

    Not Israel

    Anatoly: I challenge you to write an honest post that acknowledges the legitimate concerns of the Palestinian people. I promise not to label you as self hating Jew.
    Come on, you can do it!
