Recognizing the new superpower in the Middle East, Israel continues close coordination of its unstated affairs in the Middle East. Meanwhile, as the Obama administration lashes out at Netanyahu in its final days, Donald Trump may be inviting Netanyahu to to his inauguration as the 45th President of the United States.
While the US and the West have focused recent attention on condemning Israel, Russia's President Putin has been a busy boy. He has announced a peace process that might stop, if not resolve, the civil war in Syria. Elevating Russia's standing in the Middle East, it is a process in which the US and the West are excluded.
Vocativ, a deep-web intelligence gathering news service with offices in Tel Aviv and New York, has uncovered an ISIS hit list of US churches targeted for terror attacks during the holidays. The summons is consistent with recent events in Cairo and Berlin. It also fits Islamic State's recent issue of its English magazine titled, "Break the Cross."
According to this Israeli news intelligence analysis, the war against ISIS is a "colossal failure." As a result, Israel now has threats pressing in from every border.
In the name of Allah, terror attacks are striking targets in Arab countries with whom Israel has relationships. They are also erupting in Western nations that do business with the Jewish state. Is Israel an intentional connection or an accidental one?
