“More than 700 people killed in Syria on Thursday and Friday, in the bloodiest two days of the conflict until now. A woman was executed for adultery in Raqqa. None of the above were killed by Jews, however. This presumably explains the total lack of interest by the western media, (and of course by the Islamist/far-left crowd who have been attacking synagogues and so on in Europe in recent days.)”…See More
BAGHDAD — For the first time in decades, Iraq has attacked neighboring Syria.
The government of Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki said the Iraq Army attacked a convoy in eastern Syria.
Officials said Iraqi helicopters fired missiles toward vehicles sent by Al Qaida’s Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
“The army struck eight tanker trucks in Wadi Suwab inside Syrian territory as they were trying to enter Iraqi territory to provide the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant with fuel,” Iraqi Interior Ministry spokesman Brig. Gen. Saad Maan said.
Maan said the helicopter strike on April 27 killed at least eight people. The official said Syria was not informed of the attack.
“There was no coordination with the Syrian regime,” Maan said.
These massacres were committed in rural Idlib in two little villages. According to several sources, 7 Syrian soldiers who were taken hostage by terrorists, were brutally slaughtered alongside with their families.
LiveLeak This savage massacre took place in the village of Qmenas, Idlib. The terrorists run over the checkpoint and mutilated the corpses after executing/beheading them. The other massacre took place in Sarmeen, Idlib.
A group of jihadist ideologues, including a sharia official in the Al Nusrah Front, have called on Ayman al Zawahiri to address the specific problems that the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS) has caused inside Syria.
The message, which was obtained by The Long War Journal, is being disseminated on Twitter. A photo of Zawahiri next to a sealed envelope, shown above, as well as a hashtag are accompanying the message. Oren Adaki, a research associate and Arabic language specialist at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, has provided a translation of the missive.
The ideologues argue that the infighting has led the jihad in Syria astray.
Syrian President Bashar Assad this week said he expects that major military operations in Syria will conclude by the end of 2014. Following this, all that will remain will be the need to deal with the ongoing problem of “terrorists.”
The bullish confidence of the Syrian leader followed recent remarks by Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah, who said in a speech that the danger that the Syrian regime could fall has now been averted.

Last night I played Happy; today the enemy woke me up. Look at this photo. This best illustrates the battle we are fighting. The savages vs the civilized man. A culture that hails the exaltation of life versus an airless, anti-humane ideology that reveres death, carnage and barbarity. This is a Westernized Muslim from Iraq, now in Syria, but it is hardly exclusive to the Muslims in Iraq or Syria or Nigeria etc. Devout Muslims in Afghanistan (the Taliban) use these heads as soccer balls, and devout Muslims in Syria have massive human slaughterhouses. Devout Muslims in Nigeria are setting schools ablaze and slaughtering children, doctors, and teachers. Thailand, too. Obama says, “Respect it!” Geller says, “He’s nuts.”
Here is a pious Muslim who lived in the West for 10 years at the largesse of the taxpayer. And this is what emerged.
The Obama administration may be acting as if its rift with Russia won’t affect the attempt to broker a nuclear deal with Iran. It can hope against hope that Russia will forget its quarrel with the Americans and maintain solidarity with the U.S. and the European Union in the Iran talks and continue as if nothing has changed. But there’s little doubt that the open hostility between Washington and Moscow has reduced the already slim chances for a satisfactory P5+1 agreement with Iran. Since the diplomatic option that the president has defended so vigorously in recent months depends entirely on Russian cooperation including the enforcement of sanctions that Putin never really supported, the aftermath of the Crimea conflict has left the administration with little diplomatic leverage.
If so, where does that leave Israel?
