Incoming intelligence of Al Qaeda groups in the Sinai Peninsula winding up preparations for a multiple attack on an Israeli location, such as Eilat, and a US military target in the Negev, has put southern Israel and US forces posted there on high terror alert. This is reported by debkafile’s military sources.
The Israeli high command decided to treat the five Qassam rockets fired at Shear Hanegev Wednesday, April 3, which were claimed by the Al Qaeda-affiliated Salafist “Jihad Brigades in Jerusalem.” as the opening salvo for this coordinated attack. An Iron Dome battery was accordingly moved Thursday to the Israeli-Egyptian border north of the southern port of Eilat and additional IDF strength directed to the South.
Heavy sandstorms in the region have sharply reduced visibility for troop movements and provided excellent cover for terrorist infiltration. Continue reading
While the US continues down the road of disarmament, it couldn’t be anymore clear what America’s enemies are doing: Preparing for a war. This article serves to implicate who North Korea’s handlers are. As Mr. Fisher put it, the Chinese don’t seem to care about the rules. That’s true, but it’s also more cynical than that. Their proxies are instrumental in keeping the focus off themselves. That’s not to say that North Korea isn’t a threat, because it is, but rather that the enemy behind the enemy must remain concealed until the moment is right.
The United States has developed the illusion that total disarmament is a demonstration of “moral strength.” When the United States is at its weakest, it will be hit with one clenched fist.
China firms sanctioned for missile proliferation
Four Chinese missile manufacturers and exporters were slapped with U.S. sanctions for illicit sales related to North Korea, Iran, and Syria, the State Department said in a statement late Monday. Continue reading
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on the first visit to Cairo by an Iranian leader in more than three decades, called for a strategic alliance with Egypt and said he had offered the cash-strapped Arab state a loan, but drew a cool response.
“We must all understand that the only option is to set up this alliance because it is in the interests of the Egyptian and Iranian peoples and other nations of the region,” the official MENA news agency quoted him in remarks to Egyptian journalists published on Wednesday. Continue reading
In layman’s terms, his definition of complete liberation means complete annihilation.
Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is due to take part in a summit in Egypt this week, expressed his desire on Monday to visit the neighboring Gaza Strip.
Asked in an interview on the Al-Mayadeen news channel whether he would visit Gaza while in Cairo next week or before his term as president expires in June, he replied: “My wish is bigger than this. I wish to pray in Jerusalem after complete liberation.” Continue reading
CAIRO/BERLIN (Own report) – Mass protests with numerous casualties are casting a shadow over Egyptian President Muhammad Mursi’s visit to Berlin, which begins tomorrow. Already last week, while preparations for the upcoming talks were being made in the German capital, hundreds of thousands took to the streets in Egypt, against Mursi’s Islamist government. The Egyptian president’s Berlin visit seeks particularly to promote German business in this North African country. Egypt’s economy is, at the moment, in ruins, but, according to assessments by German business circles, holds long term lucrative opportunities. Cooperation with Mursi – and, behind him, the Muslim Brotherhood – was initiated by the German government in the early aftermath of the revolts at the beginning of 2011. This cooperation draws on concepts developed by German think tanks along with US organizations in the aftermath of the Muslim Brotherhood’s 2005 electoral success. Experts are explicitly warning against a “positive assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood.” “Authoritarian tendencies” within their ranks “are evident.” Continue reading
Israeli Air Force Commander Maj. Gen. Amir Eshel warned Tuesday, Jan. 29, that Syria is falling apart and no one knows what the next day may bring: “War may not break out tomorrow,” he said, “but we stand ready for any eventuality.”
If war is not expected tomorrow, why have Israel’s armed forces, including the air force, been on their highest level of preparedness since Friday, Jan. 25? The Syrian crisis may not technically fit the description of a state of war. However, the violent turbulence in that country may at any time spill over the border into hostilities in some shape or form.
If this happens, said the officer, “A decision to attack Syria or Lebanon will need to be implemented immediately.” Continue reading
After what the current US administration had done (and admitted) to overthrow Mubarak from Egypt, we now see the predicted result. Scuds today, ICBMs tomorrow.
Chinese missile technicians spotted in Egypt working with North Koreans to upgrade Scuds
China is covertly working with North Koreans to modernize Egypt’s short-range missile systems, raising new concerns among United States intelligence officials about the arms programs of the Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated government in Egypt. Continue reading
The Institute for Science and International Security said Egypt could be conducting nuclear activities with applications for the assembly of an atomic bomb.
In a report, the institute urged the United States to pressure the new Islamist regime of President Mohammed Morsi, which receives $1.5 billion in annual aid from Washington, to pledge not to engage in weapons of mass destruction proliferation. Continue reading
Egyptian security forces have seized US-made anti-tank and surface-to-air missiles destined for Gaza, where militants have said they would acquire more weapons to use against Israel, security officials said on Friday. Continue reading
CAIRO — Egypt, pressed by Israel and the United States, have
reported the seizure of a major rocket shipment bound for the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
Egyptian security forces were said to have captured one of the largest weapons transport smuggled from Libya and headed for the Gaza Strip.
Officials said Egyptian military and police units intercepted a truck near Libya that contained 108 BM-21 Grad rockets and 400,000 rounds of anti-aircraft artillery shells. Later, the Egyptian-controlled media said about 20,000 rounds were found. Continue reading
Hamas dared. Israel has obliged. We now have a time table for war.
Get ready for an escalation and the possibility of the entire Middle East getting set on fire. The Middle East getting set on fire could bring forth a whole host of things such as retaliatory terrorist strikes on the US homeland to the collapse of economies. This is not a prediction, but a possible scenario, which hopefully will not come to pass.
As explosions terrorise both Palestinians and Israelis for a seventh day running, Israel has put plans for a ground operation in Gaza ‘on hold’ while talks to secure a truce with Hamas militants continue.
While it is understood a Thursday deadline has been set for the Egypt-brokered talks, an Egyptian intelligence source said ‘there is still no breakthrough and Egypt is working to find middle ground.’ Continue reading

Correspondent Allen Pizzey reports that, despite vague talk of a cease-fire, Hamas managed to hit a southern Israeli city with four rockets, and retaliation continued unabated. Continue reading
