Don’t look now, but there’s a very interesting alliance building in the Middle East, and their common enemy is the ISIS animals.
The New York Times is reporting that there is a “secret alliance” between Egypt and Israel to combat ISIS along the Sinai border between the two countries.
The report claims that Israel has flown more than 100 missions in the last two years, striking targets in the terrorists’ stronghold in Egypt with the full knowledge and cooperation of Cairo’s government.
Egypt appeared unable to stop them, so Israel, alarmed at the threat just over the border, took action. For more than two years, unmarked Israeli drones, helicopters and jets have carried out a covert air campaign, conducting more than 100 airstrikes inside Egypt, frequently more than once a week — and all with the approval of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
The remarkable cooperation marks a new stage in the evolution of their singularly fraught relationship. Once enemies in three wars, then antagonists in an uneasy peace, Egypt and Israel are now secret allies in a covert war against a common foe.
To quote the dumbest vice-president in American history: “This is a big f**king deal.” It is also a tiny ray of hope, because if Egypt and Israel can get along, it’s only a matter of time before other Arab nations join the team.
A Kuwaiti newspaper reports Islamist apologist and Iranian fanboy Barack Obama tipped off the head of Iran’s terrorist wing to an Israeli assassination plot.
According to Al-Jarida, three years ago the Obama Administration warned the Iranian government Israel was about to assassinate Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force, the overseas arm of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, in Damascus.
Al-Jarida asserts that the incident “sparked a sharp disagreement between the Israeli and American security and intelligence apparatuses regarding the issue.”
The Quds force has provided military assistance to Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza; Soleimani was designated as a supporter of terrorism by the State Department in 2007 for his connections to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, which was outspoken about wanting to proliferate ballistic missiles capable of carrying WMDs.
Literally thousands of lives could have been saved if Israel eliminated Soleimani. To think an American president would tip off the terror mastermind of our most dangerous enemy is mind-boggling.
Of course, Barack Obama was never truly an American president; he was always an Islamist president with Iranian loyalties.
Several Middle Eastern countries have taken the drsatic step of banning the new Wonder Woman film. The ban comes not because of the skimpy outfit, or the film’s message, but because the star, Gal Gadot, is an Israeli.
Hollywood movie Wonder Woman has been banned in Tunisia due to the leading actress’ Israeli heritage.
The film was pulled before the first screenings on June 8 after a lawsuit called Gail Gadot a ‘champion Zionist.’ Tunisia joins Lebanon and Algeria in banning the film due to Gadot’s Israeli heritage and past links to the country’s military.
Following the decision, screenings of the film were removed from cinema websites.
Personally, I hope every Middle Eastern country bans the film. I’m a big proponent of letting ignorant assholes expose themselves to the world.

While continuing with the Obama administration’s Antisemitism Tour, Secretary of State John Kerry took the occasion to side with Palestinian terrorists against the only democracy in the Middle East.
Below are his remarks from a State Department address yesterday.
“The truth is that trends on the ground, violence, terrorism, incitement, settlement expansion and the seemingly endless occupation, they are combining to destroy hopes for peace on both sides and increasingly cementing an irreversible one state reality that most people do not actually want.
Today, there are a similar number of Jews and Palestinians living between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea. They have a choice. They can choose to live together in one state or they can separate into two states. But here is a fundamental reality. If the choice is one state, Israel can either be Jewish or democratic. It cannot be both.”
Strangely enough, most people thought a politician could either be corrupt or stupid, not both. Thankfully, John Kerry proved them wrong.
