Israeli Military Admits to Supporting Syrian Jihadis

The alternative press has noted for months that Israel is supporting jihadis in Syria.  But Israel has consistently denied these allegations … until now.

The Times of Israel reported 3 weeks ago:

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Monday that Israel has been providing aid to Syrian rebels, thus keeping the Druze in Syria out of immediate danger. Israeli officials have previously balked at confirming on the record that the country has been helping forces that are fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar Assad.


“We’ve assisted them under two conditions,” Ya’alon said of the Israeli medical aid to the Syrian rebels, some of whom are presumably fighting with al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra Front to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad. “That they don’t get too close to the border, and that they don’t touch the Druze.”

Al Nusra is Al Qaeda, and closely affiliated with ISIS.  And remember, there have NEVER been any “moderate Syrian rebels” … only Islamic Sunni jihadis.

As Vice President Joseph Biden admitted:

The fact of the matter is . . . there was no moderate middle. . . . [O]ur allies in the region were our largest problem in Syria. . . . They poured hundreds of millions of dollars and . . . 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.

(Leaked NSA documents also show that Israeli special forces assassinated a top Syrian government official.)

Not all Israelis support this effort.  For example, Jacky Hugi  – an Arab affairs analyst for Israeli army radio – recently wrote:

Israel should back Assad


Anyone who wonders why is invited to look at neighboring Iraq or distant Libya. What’s happening there is likely to happen in Syria after President Bashar al-Assad.


In choosing between one bad thing and another, the balance tips toward the regime. The Israeli security establishment should gradually abandon its emerging alliance with the Syrian rebels


The survival of the Damascus regime guarantees stability on Israel’s northern border, and it’s a keystone to its national security.


It is a dangerous, irresponsible gamble to choose Assad’s enemies and encourage his collapse — it would be playing with fire. The prominent elements among Israel’s potential future neighbors are mainly Jabhat al-Nusra, al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria, or the Islamic State ….

    Hey what do you know there’s at least one sane person in Israel of any influence. I’m actually really quite glad to see that, unsure as I am of the amount of said influence of either Jacky Hugi or “Israeli Army Radio”, but I’m assuming that must reach a decent amount of people. I know Israel wants Arabs and Iran to fight each other constantly but I was pretty shocked at first to learn of their backing the worst of the worst Islamist extremists, seems pretty short sighted for one, and beyond hypocritical for another. Of course I “get it” now but I can’t help but think this strategy has a huge downside for future risks to Israel, as much as I hate what they do as a state on many levels, it’s not like I don’t want to see a peaceful middle east that includes Israel. Not like they’re going anywhere.

    Sure, Israel will assist those that want to kiil it… that’s such BS….

    However, what is true is that Israel has and is helping thousands of wounded syrians and treating them in Israeli hospitals.
