Virtually unreported in the United States this month was Israel’s decision to send a message to neighboring Syria. Israeli warplanes fired several rockets targeting a military site known for chemical weapons production and the manufacture of precision guided missiles located in the Hama region of west-central Syria.
Israel’s airstrike is meant to contain the aggressive escalation of Syrian-Iranian-Hizballah forces. The targeted area just happens to be 55 minutes from the Syrian airfield used to launch chemical weapons attacks – an area hit hard with 59 Tomahawk missiles by the United States earlier this year in April.
Hear Director Daube from the Jerusalem offices of the Zionist Organization of America in Israel, respond to Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff, Gadi Eisenkot’s statements concerning Iran’s efforts to manufacture precise weaponry in Syria and Lebanon in order to facilitate Hizballah’s set-up of military industries. Eisenkot’s statement that Iran’s influence in the Middle East is “as challenging” as “defeating the Islamic State” and that the “war between wars” continues all the time and at any time may deteriorate on any front due to “tactical events” on the ground is a disturbing reality that Israel must daily contend.

Also, get more insight and understanding from Director Daube on Iran’s decision to follow in North Korea’s footsteps in order to realize its goal of regional supremacy and the status of a global nuclear power.
And hear Director Daube and your host concerning Jason Greenblatt, President Trump’s Special Middle East Envoy on moving forward a “peace process” between Muslim Palestinians determined to destroy the Jewish state and the Jews of Israel who fight to maintain their survival.
Mr. Greenblatt has stated: “Hamas has substantially harmed the people of Gaza” due to its commitment to terrorism. And indeed, he is correct! However, Mr. Greesblatt went further to suggest that the Palestinian Authority take control of the Gaza Strip. But is the Palestinian Authority, an organization that sponsors terrorists, glorifies and celebrates murder, an entity that should assume the role of governing the Gaza – a safe haven for numerous terrorist groups?
On another broadcast topic, hear how Democrats, including former presidential candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, continue to celebrate what the Muslim world is watching, i.e., Al-Jazeera. A Qatar-based television network that celebrated Osama Bin Laden months prior to his orchestrated Al Qaeda attack on the United States on September 11, 2001. Hear what they spoke of on this week’s show.
Find out what no other American may know about one particular talk show aired just two (2) months prior to 9/11. Dedicating an entire program to Bin Laden, the program hosts suggested that the slender jihadist “has made the greatest power in history shudder at the sound of his name . . . feared by America – for whom [America] moves its fleets and puts its army and embassies on highest alert? ….” [See: https://www.memri.org/reports/terror-america-30-retrospective-bin-laden-special-al-jazeera-two-months-september-11]
