News from The Israel Project
The New York Times reported on Monday that Hezbollah’s warfighting in Syria is bolstering the organization’s capabilities, despite whatever losses it may be suffering, and that Israeli military officials now assess that the Iran-backed terror group’s involvement in the nearly three-year-old conflict has become “a major burden… but also a major advantage.”Though opposition elements have been able to degrade Hezbollah’s forces – news published earlier this week conveyed casualty figures as high as 120 fighters – there are roughly five thousand soldiers from the group who are gaining invaluable battlefield experience and emerging battle-hardened. Intelligence assessments also describe the Bashar al-Assad regime as having engaged in a quid-pro-quo with Hezbollah, under which Damascus would repay the Lebanese organization for its military assistance by providing advanced weapons to be used in a future war with Israel. The dynamic is one of several behind deepening concerns that Hezbollah has set up the next conflagration with Israel to be particularly intense. Analysts have also called specific attention to the vast network of human shields that Hezbollah has created, to the sheer quantity of its stockpiles – thought to contain roughly 100,000 rockets and missiles – and to advanced weapons that are expected to be used against Israeli civilian centers and energy infrastructure.
Reuters on Monday conveyed statements from U.S. Brigadier- General John Shapland, the chief American defense attache Israel, suggesting that Israel could expand its anti-missile umbrella to protect Jordan and Egypt, with the outlet also noting that the head of Israeli Missile Defence Organisation (IMDO) “cautiously welcomed the idea.”

Obamacare Was Not Designed To Get Insurance To the Uninsured
Politicaloutcast.com reports: One of the key architects of the law, Ezekiel Emanuel, has been starting to dish the inside scoop on how ObamaCare was put together, because he has a book to flog. Emanuel gives us one big answer to our question. What was the point of ObamaCare, if not to insure the uninsured? To destroy the insurance companies.
