            You are an ignoramus; do some homework about what it means to follow the Jewish religion and then explain how that is compatible with following zionism.

            YES but you can’t lay guilt by association on Jews for the crimes against peace, crimes against humanity and war crimes of the zionist antisemite occupiers of Palestine. Zionism is an opposite of Judaism.

            Attrition 47perhaps others want to do what racist supremacist Jews do, perhaps that is what you mean. Its possible, but they aren’t doing it yet and have not done it in the past only racist supremacist Jews have murdered hundreds of millions of innocent Goyims. Note: I do say racist supremacist Jews as not all of them are genocidal racist supremacists. Only about 90%, according to the latest Israeli polling.
            To all Slave Goyims like Attrition 47 on this board, if you don’t already, I suggest you study the Jewish Press – the ones based in Israel – in order to get a full understanding of what they routinely plan in respect to the Stupid Goyim. Don’t take my word for it, see for yourself. See below nothing beats the confession.

            It is where I get almost all my info. You’ll usually see them admitting things
            that would never make it into the Jewish owned and heavily censored American or Western media, and if you’re not up on the Zionist, Jewish, racist, supremacist, empire, their rantings of hatred and racism for all Goyim and bragging of their murdering millions and millions of goyim and their total control of countries like the USA, Britain France, German etc. in their global empire it can be quite enlightening, indeed “We must not forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish,” Plocker started out by saying. He went on to make a number of startling confessions:

          • zman

            A more accurate statement might be; Not all Jews are Zionists…just as not all Zionists are Jews. But, all Zionists support Greater Israel.

          • Attrition47

            No you ignorant fucker, you cannot be a Jew and a zionist. You can be a liar, a hypocrite, a fellow-traveller but if you were ever Jewish (communicant with the religion) you can’t remain a Jew if you take up zionism because zionism is inimical to Judaism.

          • zman

            And you call others ignorant.

          • Attrition47

            It gets a bit wearing trying to communicate with people who have got their heads up their arses.

            On second thought attrition47 you also need to read the Talmud, the Torah and the Kaballa. Once you do that your entire false reality bubble world created by the racist supremacist Jewish owned media will be destroyed by truth, unless you are evil and are one of them.

          • Attrition47

            Judaism is one of the forms religion takes and as such is as harmless as christianity or protestantism. The people that you criticise are not Jewish because you can’t be a Jew and a zionist, they are opposites.

            Come on, admit it, you’re a haSSbara provocateur.

          • John Brown

            OK attrition47, so should Jews and Israel get the money in reparations from Germany and the German people (not counting what they get from America) as they have, including nuclear capable submarines, for the Jews who did not leave Germany under the Zionist / Nazi Havara pact, and then killed by the Nazis and Zionists in what they call a holocaust? If you believe the 6 million number (like George Soros who has confessed working for the Nazi to kill Jews who did not leave Germany for Palestine as the happiest time of his life).

            Also as it is now well known that Germans killed 30 million Russians in world war 2, should not Germany have to pay reparations Russia and Russians in the ratio of 5 dollars to every 1 dollar Germany has or will give to Jews as 30 million is 5 times 6 million?

            Will you then also say Jews, Israel and world Jewry should pay reparations to Russia and the former Soviet Republics for the Jews killing of 65 million innocent Goyims there?
            Will you also say racist supremacist Israel and world Jewry should pay
            reparations to Africans and blacks for the African holocaust of 400 years (over 100 millions killed) of slavery in the 95% Jewish controlled slave trading and owning of blacks in the Americas??
            The Greatest Mass Murderers of all Time were Jews, says Jewish Columnist. Killing 65 million innocent Goyims. Why aren’t Americans taught about this holocaust committed by racist supremacist Jews?

            5 of Ovadia Yosefs most controversial quotations
            http://www.timesofisrael.com/5-of-ovadia-yosefs-most-controversial-quotations/
            Late Sephardi spiritual leader made a range of inflammatory comments —
            involving snakes and sinners, gentiles and Blacks
            By Lazar Berman October 9, 2013, 7:41 am
            Late Sephardi spiritual leader made a range of inflammatory comments —
            involving snakes and sinners, gentiles and Blacks
            Shas founder Rabbi Ovadia Yosef (center) flanked on the left
            by MK Eli Yishai and on the right by MKs Aryeh Deri and Ariel Atias, at the
            rabbi’s house in Jerusalem,
            Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, who died Monday at 93, was a revered halachic scholar
            whose rulings found solutions for Jews caught in complex situations, brought
            countless Jews back to Torah observance, and unified the diverse Sephardi
            community.
            But Yosef was also known for some highly problematic statements about Jews, Arabs, Americans, and others.
            Here are just five of the many comments that provoked outrage.
            1) The ‘guilt’ of Jewish victims of the Holocaust:
            “The six million Holocaust victims were reincarnations of the souls of
            sinners, people who transgressed and did all sorts of things which should not be done. They had been reincarnated in order to atone.”
            — Weekly Saturday night sermon in August 2000
            2) Hurricane Katrina as divine punishment for
            godlessness and American support for the disengagement from Gaza:
            “There was a tsunami and there are terrible natural disasters, because there
            isn’t enough Torah study… Black people reside there [New Orleans]. Blacks will study the Torah? [God said] let’s bring a tsunami and drown them.”
            “Hundreds of thousands remained homeless. Tens of thousands have been
            killed. All of this because they have no God.” “Bush was behind Gush Katif [the Gaza settlement bloc]. He encouraged Sharon to expel Gush Katif… We had 15,000 people expelled here, and there 150,000. It was God’s retribution… God does not short-change anyone.”
            — Weekly Saturday night sermon in July 2005
            3) The purpose of Gentiles — to serve Jews:
            “Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the
            world – only to serve the People of Israel.” “In Israel, death has no dominion over them… With gentiles, it will be like any person – they need to die, but [God] will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. “This is his servant… That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew.”
            “Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We
            will sit like an effendi and eat… That is why gentiles were created.”
            — Weekly Saturday night sermon in October 2010
            4) On making peace with Arabs:
            “How can you make peace with a snake?”
            “Those evildoers, the Arabs — it says in the Gemara [Talmud] that God is
            sorry he ever created those sons of Ishmael.”
            — Weekly Saturday night sermon in August 2000
            5) On Muslims:
            “They’re stupid. Their religion is as ugly as they are.”
            — Weekly Saturday night sermon in December 2009. (Yosef was discussing
            the law that a Jewish woman may remarry her husband after they divorced only if she has not slept another man in the interim. However, said Yosef,
            in Muslim religious law, the condition for a woman to remarry her husband
            is that she marry another man first.)

            Indian ‘Jews’ resist DNA tests to prove they are a lost tribe
            Inigo Gilmore in Jerusalem 12:01AM GMT 10 Nov 2002
            Members of a remote community of Indians who claim to be descendants of one of the 10 lost tribes of ancient Israel are resisting plans to carry out genetic tests to prove their Jewishness.
            The group,which calls itself the Bnei Menashe (or children of the biblical tribe of Manasseh), fears that the plan by a group of American and Israel scientists to carry out DNA tests may undermine its claims to Jewish ancestry.
            So are people then going to say that we are not Jewish and dash the hopes of the rest of the community to move here? Even if it is not proven according to a DNA test, we feel Jewish and we will
            still be Jewish.”
            Take the racial purity test to see if you are part of the superior racist and supremacist master race. You know I don’t think even the KKK does this kind of racist stuff.

            Zman. Yes you are right but the vast majority, around 98% of Zionists are racist supremacist Jews and approximately 90% of Jews are racist supremacist genocidal Zionists according to the latest Israeli polling. This is the most accurate statement.
            Note:
            I do say racist supremacist Jews instead of just Jew, as not all of them are genocidal racist
            supremacists.

          Russia – Iran fight their wars in slow motion. Its too late now.

          US Military is already in place from Baghdad to Mosul pretending to fight IS instead US are blocking the northern Iran Iraq Syria land bridge.

          Iran operates in slow motion, they should have moved 1,000’s of Tanks, APCs, etc over a year ago into Syria via the land bridge and taken Deir Ez Zor / Raqqa, Al Bab / Aleppo / Idlib.

          • zman

            You’re far too pessimistic. As ‘slow’ as the Russians/Iranians may appear to be, they’ve done a very impressive job in the time they’ve been there. You have to remember that they have to be careful not to give the west any ‘reason’ to escalate their efforts publicly against the Syrians. They also have to keep winning the ‘hearts and minds’ of the civilians there, which the US and proxies do not..which means not slaughtering the non-coms. Any massive influx by Iran would give the neocon warhawks the excuse they need to fully escalate their efforts. The US is already trying to play the Iran card with Hezbollah. Russia wants to minimalize the fighting, not increase it…which would play into the hands of NATO. When looking at the results of the last 18 months, Russia’s moves have severely degraded the opposition…all the while keeping the US cabal on the back foot looking for ways to fight while trying to look like the good guys.

            From this side, have been advocating on the Syria conflict since 2010 in favour of Mr Assad’s government.

            After Palmyra v2, Homs v1 – v2, etc., noticed that the Syrian conflict is going around in circles. Consolidation of Terrorist Bulges all around Syria, etc.

            The do the minimum attitude of Mr Putin / Russia, etc since start of 2017.

            The consequences of a slow motion war will be serious as the Syrian economy as it declines, state revenues dwindle leading to less and less Public services, etc, more resources diverted to fighting the same battles over and over.

            Eventually the Syrian Military and the State itself will collapse by itself.

            Shortly after the USAF bombed the SAA and Russian troops on the Thardah mountain , protecting the airport at Dier Ezzor , they took out the 4 – 6 bridges in that city . More than half a year latter , they still have not recovered that mountain.
            What a military embarrassment , to display that weakness is to invite American aggression .
            Also I do not understand , they have reclaimed Palmyra , but still have not liberated T3 . Air strength is their advantage , T3 may be too small for jets , but 30 or 40 helicopters would make the resupply of troops feasible, and be a big aid in securing the southern border .
            Russia should re-supply Syria’s air force . Iran should supply drones . Stop resting on your laurels .

            t3 was recently hit by the russian missile launch. they are planning to take it, but at the moment the saa is using hit and run tactics, initiating small, lightning advances and using the down time to move and recover their troops, T3 will happen, but i think the saa will continue fighting in this ad hoc fashion because it allows them to take rebel territory and avoid hama level resistance,

            The Syrian Military is weak in Deir Ez Zor because of too little,too late, slow motion support from Russia and Iran whilst IS gets fast US$ multi Million support via Turkey and US through Iraq.

            You might fight this report interesting which gives full details of ISIS tactical fighting in Deir Ez Zor in May with IS breaking Syrian Military into three pockets in that city:

            http://eaworldview.com/2016/05/syria-daily-islamic-state-and-regime-battle-in-deir-ez-zor-city/

            The US allows the Syrian Military presence in Deir Ez Zor for Intelligence Gathering, monitoring purposes, traffic has to pass through there to refuel, resupply, rest, etc.

            The Bridges were blown to hinder, stop traffic but Army Engineers can run Pontoon bridges very quickly if they want to move heavy tanks, artillery etc.

            The Russians deliberately allowed in Dec 2016, Palmyra v2 / T3 Base to be overrun to keep Syria destabilized.

            Proper Syrian Military advance towards Deir Ez Zor cannot take place without retaking T3.

            This place is a mess because of Russia, even Solomon Krupacek is complaining about Mr Putin.

Lebanon is not as Zio-centric as you think, Hezbollah has a great deal of influence and power there.

          Lebanese people love money more than wars, mainly they want a good life.

          Only Lebanese organizations like Hezbollah continue the fight with Israel because they have ideology and direction from Nasrullah.

          Lebanon is now controlled by the “Terror Axis” created by Israel and led by the US, they set the the Middle East “Strategy”.

          The Lebanon Government has no choice but to do the bidding of the “Terror Axis”, this started after 2006 when Israel Bombed Lebanon almost into the stone age. (See Video below).

          In 2006, Israel caused many US$10’s of Billions of damage to Lebanon’s civilian infrastructure which is unlawful under the Geneva Convention and is a War Crime.

          In 2006, BBC TV News even showed the President of Lebanon broken down and crying tears begging for the Israel’s bombardment to be stopped, which was not stopped.

          Condoleeza Rice even spoke about this saying the New Middle East was being created, (See video at 0.45 below).

          Subsequently to stop Israel’s aggression, the Lebanese Government caved in and from approx 2009 until today, it allows the “Terror Axis” Battleplan to operate from Lebanon against Syria.

            In 2006 Hezbollah gave Israel a good ass kicking. They came home with something they had not had before, lots of body bags. They also lost tanks, due to Hezbollah. Israel claimed ‘mission accomplished’, but actually had their tails between their legs. Proof? They haven’t been back. Israel can only use standoff weapons…they cannot face a well equipped experienced land force. That day is gone. The 06 skirmish was a turning point in Israeli power. If indeed Hezbollah has obtained effective stand-off weaponry- AA missiles, short range ballistics, etc., then Israel needs to destabilize the entire area and create a shooting gallery to degrade them, while sitting at home and letting the west take care of it. Kind of like what is happening in Syria today. Hezbollah is the main reason Lebanon has been quiet for so long, they are a stabilizing force. Were it not for Hezbollah, Israel would once again control all of southern Lebanon, as it once did. Those days are also gone. Israel fears Hezbollah. In a recent statement (scare tactic) Israel military stated what they would consider targets in Lebanon. Hezbollah replied as to what their targets would be next time around…namely Israeli nuclear and biological research sites. Israel knows what would happen if any one of these sites were hit. No amount of western (Israeli, US) propaganda can cover up the fact that Israel wants no part of Hezbollah. This is why they attack from afar Hezbollah targets in Syria. That day too will come to an end. Also, when Syria is rid of ISIS and rebuilds their country and military, what then Israel?

            Yes, Hezbollah did give a very good beating to Israeli Forces, and also shot 1,000’s of rockets and caused evacuation of Northern Israel, etc.

            Apart from Hezbollah, the other Lebanese don’t want to fight any wars, they want to take money from the US, UK, France, etc and turn a blind eye to Weapons and Terrorists which flow from Lebanon into Homs region.

            Think about it how come Homs has many 1,000s of terrorists well trained and well armed and well supplied?

            All of this comes through Lebanon to Syria, who helps this happen?

            What rubbish. Hezbollah ARE Lebanese citizens themselves. Hezbollah are a Lebanese political party as well as resistance militia, and represent the southern Shia Lebanese population.
            The current Lebanese President, Micheal Auon – a Maronite Christian – has explicitly stated the following,’…(Hezbollah) are not contrary to the state project; otherwise we could have not tolerated it. It is an essential part of Lebanon’s defense. Hezbollah represents the people of the south. They are the inhabitants of the land who defend themselves when Israel tries to occupy or threaten them,” Aoun said, noting, “It is no longer an urgent matter to discuss the need to strip Hezbollah of its weapons, because Israel continues to occupy our lands and is seeking to take over Lebanon’s waters…’

            Aoun has to say things to soothe Hezbollah and prevent any fracture of the Lebanese nation on sectarian lines.

            Depending on the Syrian outcome, i.e. if Mr Assad’s government is toppled then arms flow via Syria to Hezbollah will stop, note it can continue via the Med.

          China is interested in doing business as 200 to 300 million plus Chinese jobs depend on the US (No 1 customer) and the EU (No 2 Customer).

          China has become a bystander in the Syrian conflict after the Trump – Xi meeting recently, at dinner with Xi, over a Chocolate cake, Trump ordered the Tomahawk missile strike on Sharyat airbase.

          Hezbollah is faction in Lebanon, it is not the Lebanese Military nor the Lebanese government.

          Apart from Hezbollah, the other Lebanese don’t want to fight any wars, they want to take money from the US, UK, France, etc and turn a blind eye to Weapons and Terrorist trafficking which flows from Lebanon into Homs region.

            Advising your dinner guest that you’ve just ordered your armed forces to illegally bomb a sovereign country may impress you, but I personally think that particular instance showed the world what kind of an ill-mannered bellicose arrogant ignoramus Americans have elected as their new president. I’m surprised he didn’t send him a tweet. Xi was not impressed, at least according to all major Chinese news outlets and agencies, and he certainly wasn’t scared if that is what you’re inferring.

            Hezbollah is not just a faction in Lebanon, it is THE faction. If it wasn’t for them, the Israelis would have occupied all of Lebanon and the whole damned country would be learning Hebrew.

            Trafficking of jihadis and weapons into all of Syria, not just Homs, came from many countries and crossed all borders. The CIA had its own rat lines running every which way. The Lebs were/are strictly amateurs compared to the Turks when it comes to jihadi/weapons smuggling.

            No country is going to disrupt US$100’s of Billions of trade for Syria’s sake. As a result after Xi’s visit to US, China is quiet and on the sidelines regarding Syria.

            Yes, Terrorists are all over Syria, however in Homs region they are getting supplied via Lebanon.

            Since 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, many 1000’s of Terrorists, armed with serious weapons cannot get into Homs with ongoing supplies unless the Lebanese Military allows it.

          To bring Russia to its economic knees a Qatar pipeline would need to go to Turkey, OK, say a spur while the main route would go through Syria’s Med coast.

          That region of Syria is Latakia (an Alawite stronghold) through to Cyprus to join the Levant Israel pipeline to the EU.

          The route is possible, if Israels’s Leviathan fields are genuine finds that are supposed to be very large

          Israel has unlimited access to money from Wall Street and the question arises why are the Leviathan not already pumping oil and gas to the MaxX with undersea pipelines already built to Cyprus and the EU ?

    This war drags on because Russia and Iran fight their wars in slow motion.

    US Military is already in place from Baghdad to Mosul pretending to fight IS instead US are blocking the northern Iran Iraq Syria land bridge.

    Iran operates in slow motion, they should have moved minimum 200,000 IRGs, 1,000’s of Tanks, APCs, etc over a year ago into Syria via the land bridge and taken Deir Ez Zor / Raqqa, Al Bab / Aleppo / Idlib and then started moving south Damascus / Derra, – Palmyra / Al Tanf,

    Its too late now or maybe not?

    Russia can move 200,000 IRGs, 1,000’s of Tanks, APCs, etc via the Black Sea, Med to Tartous.

    Mr Putin / Russia is not interested in winning Syria but want a cheap war, steady conflict and blocking pockets (Terrorist Bulges) all over Syria to prevent the Saudi – Qatar – Syria – Turkey – EU pipeline.

    Russia will lose all of Syria when the Terrorist Bulges break out simultaneous towards Damascus from NW, N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W. and overwhelm the Syrian Military.

        The consequences of operating in slow motion and not taking advantage when the time is right will be serious for Syria.

        US Facts:
        In 2013 / early 2014, the US public 70% and the US Senate were against any US strike or involvement in Syria even after the “first” alleged Chemical weapons false flag.

        The Syrian chemical weapons deal prepared by the Russians caused Obama to back off from striking Syria along with events in the UK.

        UK Facts:
        It was the same for the UK public at that time, in fact Cameron (PM) was defeated in the UK Parliament on a vote to start military strikes on Mr Assad’s Government and the Syrian Military (early 2014).

        The situation now may have changed, there is no information but the US / UK public may now be worn out by watching the Syrian conflict and may favor a US-UK-France Military strike on Syria.

        Battleplan Failure – Force Ratio:
        Failing to prepare Resources, Men, Materials and Weaponry when the time is right.

        • zman

          This slow motion, as you put it, is for a reason. To advance in the manner you put forth would over-extend their capabilities. This is what happened to German forces on the Eastern front, as well as their last gasp at the battle of the bulge. To over-extend is to leave themselves vulnerable and easily cut-off from supplies. This is what the Syrians are doing to IS in fact…and it’s working. Many said the same as you…forget Al Tanf and go for Deir Ezzor. What good would that do if they are cut off because they lost the main supply route because of western actions from the Jordanian border, where the west is amassed? By strengthening this area, they have secured their flank and stymied the US plans. The US cannot proceed without facing the Syrian coalition first…witness the recent attack at Zaza(where RuAF attacked them). The Russians just showed them what that would entail. The Syrians and Russians did not get this far by being stupid. Counter that with all the great tactical manoeuvres of the US. Not.

        What you report to us is very true, Allah is not interested in fighting wars, but the outcome of wars provide Allah with​ appreciation, the problem was begun long before Satan came along, it’s the nature of the symbiotic relationship between Alla (that was before He became Allah He gets better as we improve) and​ Fate, satan symbolised that in a personal capacity, in actual fact satan was the condition that had to transcend symbolic meaning to be factual, but he prefered symbolic better because he could be what he was, same as Fate who detests everything and would much prefer nothing at all then Fate would be the boss of it all.
        Sort of like martydom in a way, Fate wins sometimes Allah other times that’s symbiosis and the outcome is what we perceive Allah’s ongoing war, that we fight for Him just to keep everything going getting better.
