Leaked Documents Reveal US Sees Israel as a Spying Threat Spy image 
Patriotupdate.com reports: The Obama administration views Israel as one of the top spying threats facing its intelligence services, leaked documents reveal.

News from the Israel Project
Hezbollah¬† is mobilizing troops¬† in southern Lebanon, redeploying fighters from the group’s coastal and Bekaa valley strongholds into what the Hezbollah-linked Arabic daily Al-Akhbar describes as “their positions.” Al-Akhbar also reported that the Iran-backed terror group had established a joint “operations room” with the Bashar al-Assad regime in order to coordinate funding, ahead of possible Western strikes against the regime. A senior Syrian official went further, telling the Wall Street Journal that Hezbollah and the Syrian armed forces “are now one body,” and that Damascus would in part rely on the group to conduct “operations targeting warships in the Mediterranean.”

Israel has prepared contingency plans for a security collapse in the Sinai Peninsula, amid deepening fears that the Egyptian army is straining in its ongoing campaign to root out jihadists in the increasingly restive territory.

Iranian and Syrian officials have threatened to lash out against the West – both the U.S. and France were explicitly named – should Western powers take military action against the Bashar al-Assad regime. Gen. Hossein Salami, acting commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, said on Tuesday that an attack against Damascus would spread the “spirit of jihad.”

Liberals Reject Obama’s Case for Syria Strikes; Believe Obama and Kerry are Lying
Patriotupdate.com reports: President Obama’s liberal activist base is adamantly opposed to military strikes in Syria, according to a new survey the Progressive Change Campaign Committee released Wednesday. PCCC says more than 57,000 of its activists weighed in, and 73 percent of them opposed the U.S. taking action in Syria. Just 18 percent supported strikes, and just 14 percent said the U.S. should go ahead unilaterally if it can’t find any allies.
