Golan Heights - Neo Bavel!

Tumah: Act 1 - build tower to wage war with God
Tumah: Act 2 - build tower to wage war with God, this time in the Golan

News Today: WWIII soon to erupt in the Golan; the node to all Avodah Zara;

That would be called Torah, the book we are told to not forsake.

Israel is concerned over the Syrian War’s reach into the Golan Heights which they have been occupying since Six-Day War of 1967. The Golan Heights is a strategic territory for Israel’s security and it is an important source of its water supplies. An attack on Syria could occur if they crossed into Israel’s occupied land.

It was reported in an NBC news report that correspondent John Ray interviewed top Israeli air force officials about Israel’s monitoring of the Golan Heights of the Syrian border:

The spillover of violence from the Syrian conflict into the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights is threatening to jeopardize the decades old cease-fire between the two countries and spark a regional conflict.

A series of mighty Israeli airstrikes, apparently on weapons convoys heading from Syria towards President Bashar Assad’s allies in the Hezbollah militia in Lebanon, has shattered the fragile truce that has existed along the border since 1973

The Golan Heights, rightfully known as the Syrian Golan is a center of dispute between Syria and Israel since the 1940’s. On June 19th, 1967 Israel offered to return the Golan Heights to Syria if the Arab world would recognize Israel as a state. The Arab world refused such agreements with the Khartoum Resolution that same year. The 1967 occupation of the Golan Heights and the Upper Mount Hermon allowed Israel to seize the entire Upper Jordan River giving Israel access to the Upper Jordanian waters.

Then another conflict developed in 1973 called the Yum Kipper War or the Arab-Israeli War between Egyptian and Syrian forces who invaded the Sinai Peninsula and the Golan Heights, both territories occupied by Israel since the Six-Day War. The United States supplied Israel and the former Soviet Union supplied Egypt and Syria with weapons during the conflict as both superpowers were fighting the cold war against each other during that time. After the Yum Kipper War, Israel returned 5% of the Golan Heights to Syrian control with a demilitarized zone along the area that is declared a ceasefire zone that extends east under the United Nations Peace Keeping forces.

When an Israeli Air Force official was asked about the situation in the Golan Heights, he said “It’s the kind of thing happening more and more,” one of the uniformed escorts explained.” As he continued “We have for 40 years been training for this exact moment. And we are ready for anything,” said a pilot that can be identified under Israeli military rules only as “Major L.”

The Israeli Air Force official had no comment on whether Israel has been flying missions over Syria, “We are searching for peace, but preparing for war,’’ is all Pilot L would say.

When asked if he had already flown missions across the border, he shook his head slowly: no comment.” If Israel decided to attack Syria based on the Golan Heights, then the US and NATO would support Israel’s incursion into Syria’s borders. It would be a perfect excuse to attack Syria. The Golan Heights is a strategic military location and one of the most important water resources for the state of Israel. Israel would protect its interests with the United States as its principal supporter. The United States Secretary of State John Kerry and the United Nations under Ban-Ki Moon want the remaining UN Peacekeepers who are from the Philippines to stay. According to an Associated Press report:

The United Nations and the U.S. have separately asked the Philippines not to withdraw its more than 300 peacekeepers from the Golan Heights, warning of “maximum volatility” in the region after several other countries decided to pull out their peacekeeping forces amid escalating violence, the Philippines’ top diplomat said Wednesday.

Foreign Secretary Albert del Rosario said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry appealed to him in recent talks. He said he told them security for the forces should be bolstered for the Philippines to consider keeping them in the volatile buffer zone between Syria and Israel.

If the UN Peacekeeping Forces pull out of the zone then Israel will send in their troops antagonizing the Syrian government.

Last month, del Rosario recommended to Philippine President Benigno Aquino III that the peacekeepers be withdrawn from the Golan Heights following two separate abductions of Filipino peacekeepers and the wounding of another in fighting between Syrian government and rebel forces.

The Philippines Foreign Secretary knows that an Israeli strike into Syria is near; therefore his recommendation to remove forces is being challenged by both the US and the UN. According to del Rosario:

“This, of course, will create a vacuum in the Golan, that separation stretch which keeps Israel away from Syria,” del Rosario said in a news conference in Manila. He said Kerry and Ban told him that if the Philippines also withdraws, that would “create maximum volatility for the area.” Albert del Rosario did stress that “Aquino said last week the changes he was looking for included additional equipment and enhanced security for the peacekeepers, and different rules of engagement. He continued “If there is no change in the conditions, it might be an undoable mission and our poor troops will be in the middle of two potentially clashing forces and they cannot defend themselves.”

Israel’s concern with the Golan Heights would allow it to launch a definitive strike that would try to cripple Syria’s military capabilities. With the Obama administration willing to supply the Anti-Assad rebels with weapons it would allow Israel to enter a full-fledged war into the Golan Heights. Any artillery shells that lands on the occupied territory would allow Israel to launch a full scale war into Syria with America’s blessing. The Obama administration would support Israel and the rebels with supplies and possibly even US troops already on Jordan’s northern border. The Golan Heights has been an area of tension that resulted in numerous conflicts between Israel and Syria for decades. The Golan Heights has numerous interests for the state of Israel that involves a military advantage over its enemies including Hezbollah and an important commodity for its citizens, water.

If Israel feels that its occupied territory is threatened, it will respond with its military power to remove the Assad government. But Syria will respond to any attack by Israel with full-force along with the Hezbollah forces based in southern Lebanon. The Golan Heights dispute can ignite World War III if the Obama administration aids the rebels on one-side allowing Israel to attack Syria on the other. It was also reported in The Jerusalem Post that the Israel Defense Forces just completed a drill combining the Air Force, Army and Naval forces against possible conflicts against Syria, Hezbollah and even Hamas in the Palestinian territory:

On Wednesday, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon addressed an end-of –training event for IDF officers at a base in Mitzpe Ramon, “At this time, the IDF is dealing both at home and abroad, near and far, with a considerable number of fronts of uncertainty,” he said.

Ya’alon cited the Lebanese front where Hezbollah continues to arm itself and plans on harming Israeli civilians in a future conflict, and the front with Syria, “where a civil war continues to exact a heavy price of human lives, and a (civil) war is nearing our borders, placing us before a complex test that is full of significance.”

He added that there was “a front of uncertainty with the Gaza Strip, where the Hamas terrorist group continues to rule, and which has placed as its goal the destruction of the state of Israel.”

Israel is preparing to launch a war starting with Syria, Palestine and Hezbollah which will last for a very long time. Israel is the occupying force that is waging war across the Middle East. It would result in mass civilian deaths on both sides of the conflict.

"In the footsteps of the Moshiach....the Galilee will be destroyed, the Gablan (Golan) will be laid waste, the frontier dwellers will go begging from place to place without anyone taking pity on them....."(Talmud Sotah 49).

When Yitzhak Rabin was told by lawyers that in wanting to cede the Golan he was violating the Israeli Penal Code's Chok Habegidah ("Law of Treason") - sections 97, 99 and 100 (which is still on Israel's statute books as carrying the death penalty), he declared "the Golan is not Holy Land - it is Tank Land - don't bother me with legalities", and that "the Tenach is a dusty old book of contracts that has no meaning for today"!

Despite the clear evidence of a massive Syrian build up in 1973, Rabin advised: "there is no need to call up our forces even when the enemy makes threats and deploys its forces along the cease-fire line; there is no danger!" 3000 Israeli dead and 10,000 wounded paid for his advice.

The hopelessly outnumbered tankists on the Golan, without reserves or support, desperately attempted to hold back the 2000 tank Syrian thrust, fighting to the last round. The onslaught took place at the height of the Musaf Prayer when in the days of the Temple sacrifices were offered to atone for the entire Jewish People: "Those soldiers who perished in that hour died as complete tzaddikim" (Rabbi Baruch Horovitz)
When the Golan had been overwhelmed there was nothing was to stop the Syrians from crossing the Bnot Yaakov bridge and fanning out into Rosh Pinah, Tiberias and the Israeli heartland. Yet for some unknown reason they mysteriously stopped: "I will break the bar of Damascus" (Amos 1); see "Duel for the Golan - the 100 hour battle that saved Israel", E.Hammel 1987.

According to all Halachic opinions Syria and Lebanon are part of Eretz Yisrael, and once any part of them is occupied by Jewish forces, it is forbidden to voluntarily relinquish them. "Damascus will cease to be a city and will become a heap of ruins" (Yeshaya 17). "Jerusalem in the future is destined to be enlarged up to Damascus" (Sifrei, Devarim 1), and ultimately "On that day there will a mighty highway connecting Egypt to Assyria....Israel will be with Egypt and Assyria as a blessing for the Earth....blessed will be Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands and Israel My inheritance" (ibid 19).

just wondering, what was it like for tourists in '67 and '73?

i was there during the last intifada (an incident occurred down a street in the capital; bystanders looking out windows; relatives were concerned, but i felt really safe, after the airport, where a guard with sunglasses and a big smile asked me questions; that was before b'nei menashe made aliyah, so i suppose i looked weird donning an orange kippah, if memory serves; there was a bomb scare at the airport; people seemed aggravated, but not scared; learned to cut the line, when i noticed people were cutting, lol; slept in on har ha'zeitim and missed the bus to beit lechem; the excursions with my Swiss buddy were arduous, but quaint; digital cameras were not around so much then; i found the arab t-shirt salesmen too eager; very reminiscent of puerto rican in-laws who tend to talk face-to-face like boxers; the youth filming in tel aviv seemed a tad shell-shocked by the vendor yelling at them and just the overall mood that evening; they let me sit with them in stunned silence and i miss giving free light shows to idf soldiers; they taught me a lesson on how to spin glowsticks; hevron during sukkot was my favorite).

honestly, just wondering because there is a collective preparing a visit in November; it's costlier than when i traveled with my buddy Theodore (he's still there, as a volunteer police officer or something; learned to play the lyre with a dash of caribbean (?). i would like my mom, especially my dad to visit; our sinit friend is going with her husband. sorta apprehensive about attending planning meetings, since i tend to go off on my own anyway. i would like to visit an elder in tzfat, though.

The filipini sounds exasperated: "different rules of engagement" is what the embassy has photographed (folk dancing, smiling), but the reality on the ground over there does not seem suitable for a shire gathering just yet. pretty amazing that they were kidnapped at least twice and were released unharmed, huh. it was amusing and their smiles and waving were cute, but it is irresponsible of the Armed Nations to risk Fijim and Filipinim Islanders, when they are no longer cultivating harmful plants (the philippines went through a process of decaying the last remnant of material, recently).

what i find interesting is that the northern regions of America and Western Europe are experiencing severity, as well as NW China.

the philippines should instead focus on regional east asian issues, especially with china, who sounds neglected.

so russia egged on assyria on those two previous occasions? that's interesting. it's also interesting that russians volunteered to assist filipinim, all "300" of them, lol, but were rejected by the Nations. what would israel like to do should be priority.
