France admits it directly supplied arms to Syrian “rebels”
WEB Notes: The leader of France admitting with his own mouth they funded the rebels in Syria who are ISIS. ISIS did not come from under a rock with arms and new pickup trucks. Put 2 and 2 together my friends.
(Source: WSWS) – President François Hollande confirmed in a Le Monde interview on August 19 that France has been directly supplying arms to the “rebels” of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) in its proxy war to remove the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. This came ahead of the recent US decision to intervene militarily in Syria, ostensibly to crush the Islamic State (IS) opposition militia operating in Iraq and Syria.
French imperialism has been arming Syrian Islamist opposition forces since at least the spring of 2013. According to Le Monde, it provided weapons including 12.7-mm machine guns, rocket launchers, body armour and communications equipment—but “ nothing”, according to a Le Monde source, “which ‘could have been turned against us’ such as explosives”. The same weapons are also being shipped to the Peshmerga Kurdish militias in northern Iraq to stop the progress of the IS takeover, a direct product of the US war in Iraq. – Read More – WSWS
Syrian Rebels Take Control of Crossing in the Golan
WEB Notes: It is far past time that we should all be paying attention to events like these. What did Christ tell us? “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh, (Luke 21:20). That desolation properly translated is the desolator who is none other than Satan himself, the false messiah. What else are we suppose to do during these end times? We should be following the words of Isaiah 21:6 which is a scripture we have at the bottom of our site. Be a watchman and report what you see. Warn the people, time is growing short.

The move could bring Islamist forces within 200 yards of territory controlled by Israel. An activist in the area, contacted by Skype, said a coalition of Islamists, including members of the Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, opened an assault on the government-held crossing early Wednesday. The status of a United Nations force that is supposed to monitor the crossing point was unclear. – Read More – NY Times
