IDF-linked Think Tank Admits Israel, ISIS Are Allies In Confronting Iran In Syria

A new Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center report says that ISIS and Israel are temporary allies against Iran.

A new report suggests that in the area of countering Iran’s presence in Syria, ISIS and Israel’s interests may converge, which in a way makes them allies. Despite suggesting no formal alliance between ISIS and Israel, an IDF affiliated think tank Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center reports that interests of both ISIS and Israel align, making them allies against Iran.

Regarding ISIS, the report says it, “will likely change its combat patterns and revert to guerrilla tactics and terrorism following the end of the campaign against it in Iraq, and may carry out hit-and-run attacks against Iranian vehicles moving along the land corridor (Iranian vehicles may be perceived as attractive targets for ISIS in its new incarnation).”

Iran’s intervention in Syria “fans the flames of conflict with ISIS, which retains significant operational capabilities even after the collapse of the Islamic States.” In addition, the report says, “We assess that Iran and the militias under their patronage will struggle to provide an adequate response to this terrorism challenge.”

It continues: “The Iranian presence in Syria increases the likelihood of friction with Israel and may lead to an escalation between the two countries at a timing that is not suitable for Iran.” It says this in light of numerous reports of Israeli airstrikes in Syria, some reportedly close to Damascus, against Iranian weapons transfers to Hezbollah.

The report describes Iran’s goals as: “Bolstering the pressure mechanisms and escalating the threat posed to Israel, while creating a state of deterrence. This is mainly by augmenting the military capabilities of Hezbollah, developing the abilities of Hezbollah to manufacture weapons, and establishing local terror networks in the Golan Heights, with the aim of creating a new front for challenging Israel.”

Now that ISIS is no longer an invasion threat to Israel, Israel can now unambiguously view ISIS attacks on Iran and Iranian proxies as beneficial, which isn’t without precedent. Top Israeli military officials previously spoke among those lines, with Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon saying that Iran was worse than ISIS and would rather deal with the Caliphate than with Tehran in early 2016.

    Rubbish to say now only Israel supports.

    Israel already lost

    • guy deborde

      Israel’s decimation would bring world peace within thirty years

  • Simon Gould

    Tell us something we don’t know. As for the findings of this so-called think tank – sounds like wishful thinking on their part.

  • jerry Hamilton

    This is nothing new. Israel has always supplied and supported ISIS.
    Israel’s hospitals are full of ISIS.
    ISIS had started skirmishes with Palestine just before Russia got involved.

    • Jens Holm

      Yes, nice to use as buffer for almost free.

  • TiredOfBsToo

    “..ISIS and Israel are temporary allies against Iran.”

    Israel has a long history of terrorism, so their collusion with the worst scumbags on the planet fits right in with Israel’s-democratic-values. The only thing wrong with that statement is the word ‘temporary’; maybe temporary until the next name change perhaps.

    • Jens Holm

      Rubbish. Israel just like muslims kill muslims in stead of them.

  • BL

    Virtually anyone who matters already knows about this so there’s no point in hiding it anymore.

  • Tudor Miron

    They don’t even try to hide it anymore but that’s not for MSM – US sheeple will still be fed with usual BS while their taxes are spent for zio funding of headchoppers.

    • bcbingram

      Once again I agree with every word .

    • Bob

      Remember back in 2008, when Netanyahu publicly referred to 9/11 as ‘benefiting’ Israel, same old story with ISIS in Syria and Iraq.

    • guy deborde

      Everyone knows.. anyone that researchers this for themselves comes to the same conclusion.. the only diffrence is the end game of east vs west. This will be a multipolar world or Russia, China, Iran will lead. I’m American and proud but I’m also aware and honest with myself.

      • Jens Holm

        Yes, why not. Did You take Your conclusions among others in a high hat ?

        Itan will lead nothing in those matters. At least Dumbo can do flights now and then at TV.

    • Rob

      With how many ISIS I have met in Europe, they have told me that we are Jews from Israel, Poland, Russia, and Ukraine. They have shown me the head cover that you see on TV.

    • Jens Holm

      We hide ?

      • Tudor Miron

        Yes you did try to hide that so called ISIS is nothing also than irregular armed forces of US/UK/Israel and their lower vassals (EU). Now Israel is openly admitting it.

  • MeMadMax

    You know what, If I followed my government mandated brainwashing from school, I would say “hey the israelis are cool”….

    But I don’t…. I expanded my horizons and learned beyond…. And Now I Say: FUCK THE ISRAELIS…

  • Serious

    The best IDF allies are the “gentiles” or sheeple. Americans and Sunnis are their sheeple.

  • Admiral_Moorer_believed

    Guess who will be doing the “carry out hit-and-run attacks against Iranian vehicles moving along the land corridor “. . .

    Some group backed by Mossad. . .

    They better hope that none of them get captured.

    • Jay Skinner

      Lebanon already captured two Israel Mossad’s agents that were fighting alongside of the ISIS.

      • Admiral_Moorer_believed

        No wonder Mossad is P1ssed. . .

    It is interesting that China and Russia are building this world -railways and roads and factories -incising the production all round world —-In other hand zionisrael us uk is destroying the world what a different world and attitude —the good and the stannic western evil zionism

      Who made the Internet, You use right here.

      • TiredOfBsToo

        Who uses it for spying on the entire world including it’s own citizens, not only for war planning, buty the overthrow of governments and corporate gains? Who uses it to promote propaganda and block news from outside it’s borders? Which US government agency created it and uses it in conduction of war…. the war department (DARPA).

        • Jens Holm

          That goes both way. You can see how americans think russians has been involved in the president campagne.

          Both ways.

          • TiredOfBsToo

            “..americans think russians..”

            The power of propaganda wielded by the masters of it, the US.

  • FlorianGeyer

    “Now that ISIS is no longer an invasion threat to Israel,”

    This is laughable as ISIS has never engaged in terror attacks against Jews in Israel ,or elsewhere I think:)
    By supporting ISIS attacks in the future on Iranian convoys in Iraq and Syria, Israel ( and by association the US) are de facto supporting an internationally recognised terrorist group.

    In addition to this , Iran has not burned people alive in cages, murdered tens of thousands of civilians and destroyed all vestiges of past civilisations.
    ISIS has done all of these things and much more as well.

    • alejoeisabel

      Neither has Hezbollah.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Hezbollah was invited to Iraq and Syria and without their soldiers sacrifice the Israeli enabled Black Flags of insane Takfiri killers would be flying over Iraq and Syria.

        • BMWA1

          Except in Philippines, they hold the black flag in Arabic upside-down, strange, almost as if they don’t even know Arabic alphabet to know which way is up???

          • FlorianGeyer

            Private US /Israeli contractors I suppose :)

    • Garga

      The US has always supported terror groups, even when these groups were on the US government’s terror lists. They overtly support Nour-al-Din-al-Zenki and HTS (which recently became a moderate opposition!), on top of their covert support for ALL “Islamic” (not really a right word, as they’re mostly Wahhabi) terror groups.

      Just look at how they’re BFFs with MEK, a terror cult who us Iranians hate even more than ISIS. And the idiot US government think they can use MEK as an alternative to the current Iranian government!

      • Jay Skinner

        The US Government has , but they tell the American people the opposite.

  • Turbofan

    Old news

    • FlorianGeyer

      But news that need to be kept at the forefront I think and not buried in a swamp of trivia :)

  • Rodger

    Seems Israel doesn’t realise the price for even supporting the terrorists in a single act for a single second. No more tears for them when they are the target again at some date in the future.

  • alejoeisabel

    Neither Iran, Syria or Hezbollah want to conquer Israel. That is Israeli histrionics. However, Zionist propaganda conflates the legitimate recovery of the Syrian Golan Heights with the conquest of Israel. However, what is possible is that Hezbollah seize the Northern part of Israel, and hold it as part of a territorial exchange for the return of the Syrian Golan Heights. That is possible. It is also possible for there to be a peace treaty with Syria and Lebanon if borders are established and that Israel abandon the colonial and Zionist and expansionist “Greater Israel” ideology.

  • sagbotgamot

    When did ISIS and Israel become hostile at its other?

  • Eric11210

    This is the dumbest headline imaginable. It said nothing of the kind. It said that ISIS and Israel happen to both be fighting Iran at the same time. But the stupid jihadis here love to believe whatever idiotic lie is the lie du jour.

    • Garga

      Huh! You’re not so bright, are you?
      The headline is from Jerusalem Post and there’s a link to it in the article. Since you even didn’t read the article, I put the link here for you. I know, it’s a burden to read something and actually understand it. It’s always easier to run your mouth and leave the thinking for others.

      Link to Jerusalem Post

      And here’s a link to the source article on the think-tank’s website.

      • Eric11210

        And? The Jerusalem Post admits in their article that it’s not an alliance at all. Just that both happen to share a common enemy at the moment.

    • Virgil Cane

      to anyone who wants to see what “dumb” looks like, click on eric11210’s name and skim through some of his 37k posts.

        I picture him as some pimply college kid in tel aviv working a 9 to 5 as an online commenter in those little hasbera houses they use to try and shape online public opinion.

      • Eric11210

        Ooh. Did you come up with that line all by yourself?

        • Virgil Cane

          Impressed you didn’t call me a jihadist; your usual stale, exhausted accusation.

          • Eric11210

            Do I really need to state the obvious?

    • Jay Skinner

      Eric11210, is a Zionist Jew Troll.

      • Eric11210

        I am a Zionist and a proud Jew. Troll? Not really. Just dealing in facts instead of the fiction you jihadis like to push.

      • Jay Skinner

        Speaking of fiction describes the Jew History in Palestine and being a Zionist is a lot like being a Athesis since you really do not follow anything about the Hebrew. Just another terrorists supporter.

        So what.

    “Now that ISIS is no longer an invasion threat to Israel, Israel can now unambiguously view ISIS attacks on Iran and Iranian proxies as beneficial, which isn’t without precedent.”
    Oh come on, that was never a risk. Look at the maps your GIS team produces on your own site! Go back a year and see how ISIS has always had a little pocket in Syria, South along the Golan. And they still do!
    ISIS no longer a threat to Israel? They never were a threat, they were always working in concert.

  • Real Anti-Racist Action

    Is Russia reading this? ISIS Caliphate is Tel Aviv!!!
    Russia should bomb the Caliphate today and just level ISIS professional army now.

          No, I didn’t. How can Zionists be antisemitic when Jews call anti-Zionists antisemites? You can see my confusion.

          • Attrition47

            It’s the difference between words and deeds; zionism is an antisemite ideology. Some people claim to be Jewish and zionist but they are fools or frauds, sometimes both.

    Ken O’Keefe: ISIS = Israeli Intelligence Security Service

    Partial transcript of the video – Ken O’keef speaking

    If you really want to know what is happening with the Middle Eastern policy you must read Oded Yinon’s Strategy for Israel in the 1980’s”. In that document, which is pretty much being played out to a T right now and has been for many years. There were serious objectives for Israel and Israel’s main objectives were to expand and grow in line with the Greater-Israel project and in order for it to do that there would need to be an excuse to justify the expansion of Israel and in order to do that we would have to sow the seeds of sectarian hatred and violence in the region. The number one target of this plan was Iraq. We have achieved that, that is not a failure, that is actually a success. Iraq is a failed state, it is an absolute basket case, sectarian hatred is absolutely insane. It is all part of the plan to break up Iraq into three different states. When we look at Syria, we also find that the goal is once again the same thing: sow the seeds of sectarian hatred and basically turn that nation into a basket case. This is happening according to plan as well. ISIS could stand for the Israeli Secret Intelligence Service. Many people are seeing big benefits to the “State of Israel”, the so-called “Jewish State of Israel” by the break up and the balkanization of the surrounding states,Why has ISIS or Al-Nusra -Front or Al-Quaeda not once have they eve attacked Israel? In fact, ISIS militants are getting medical attention in the Golan Heights and in Israel itself. What does that tell you?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReOSGFyGWJI
