Israel continues shelling of Syrian targets for second consecutive day ~ link ~ I do believe that over this last weekend the Syrian/Iranian/Hezbollah-Hamas side took the Strategic Offensive against the Israeli/GCC/NATO alliance.  They are acting, now that the US election is over and the Israeli one is on.  They are turning the battle, from one Muslim sect against another, to one of the 'hated Israelis' vs. all Arabs and all Muslims.  This will change the environment in the Middle East, big time, if it succeeds and place the Syrian/Iranian/Hezbollah-Hamas axis in the best position possible as they head into a General Middle East War/WWIII.  Stirling     
Israel denies ceasefire, threatens to invade Gaza again ~ link ~ They are taking the bait that the Syrian/Iranian/Hezbollah-Hamas axis has laid out.  Stirling      

Israeli artillery continued to attack the Gaza Strip over the weekend, killing at least five Palestinians, while several groups fired scores of rockets at Israel, damaging homes and leading Israeli officials to threaten another full-scale invasion. While talking up war in comments domestically Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is said to be pushing an international diplomatic effort to convince the rest of the world that another invasion is acceptable.
Egyptian officials, who just weeks ago had negotiated a ceasefire, are said to be feverishly at work trying to stave off the war, but Israeli officials are denying that any progress has been made and seem to have transitioned to the “war at all cost” position their far-right coalition has been so comfortable with.

Netanyahu to brief 50 foreign ambassadors on possible Gaza War ~ link ~ Another horrific Operation Cast Lead against the largely unarmed civilian population trapped in the open air Gaza prison camp.  This will really inflame the Arab streets and global opinion.   Stirling    

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to meet with 50 foreign ambassadors to brief them on the recent violence in the Gaza Strip and rally international support for a possible ground operation in the coastal enclave.

“He wants to make sure that the international community will understand the reasons if Israel is forced to act,” a government official said on Monday ahead of the meeting.

The official added that the premier intends to tell the envoys that “no country in the world would tolerate the current situation, in which dozens of rockets and missiles are continuously being fired at our civilian population.”

During the weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, Netanyahu said that Israel was ready to intensify its actions against the Gaza Strip.

Six Palestinians have been killed and dozens more wounded in the latest round of attacks carried out by the Israeli regime on the besieged strip.

An Israeli warplane pounded an area near the northern town of Jabaliya in Gaza during the early hours of Sunday, killing a 20-year-old man, identified as Mohammed Shwikani, and injuring two others, medical sources said.

Another young Palestinian man, named Mohammed Abed, was also killed in another airstrike east of the city.

In addition, Israeli tank fire on Saturday killed four Palestinians and wounded over 30 others in Gaza.

Israeli Minister for Military Affairs Ehud Barak has also hinted at a possible incursion into Gaza.

WWIII tripwire?  NATO to defend Turkey, British troops may deploy to Syrian border, Israel fires on Syrian positions ~ link ~  The real question is WHEN will the General Middle East War break out and with it, the Third World War, before the end of this year or early into 2013???   Stirling     
Is Netanyahu planning a Nuclear Attack on Iran? ~ link ~ I believe so!   Stirling     

Netanyahu thinks ballistic missiles carrying tactical nuclear warheads will be necessary to take out Iran's Fordow uranium enrichment facility near the city of Qom. The site is buried deep beneath a mountain.
Western sources say Israel firing a Jericho-3 missile carrying a tactical nuclear warhead would be "sufficient to 'bury' the plant."
Iran launches large-scale air-defense drills ~ link ~ Iran launched large-scale air defense drills in the country's eastern half on Monday, Iranian media reported, amid heightened tensions between Tehran and Washington over a military incident in the Gulf reported last week..

The "Velayat-4" maneuvers being held this week will span 850,000 square kilometres in Iran's northeast, east, and southeast regions, or about half its total land mass. The maneuvers will include about 8,000 troops, drawn both from Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and as its regular military, Iranian media reported.

Israeli Army confirms tank shell strikes in Syria ~ link Israeli troops fired tank shells into Syria on Monday in retaliation for a mortar round that struck near an army post in the Golan Heights, scoring “direct hits” on the source of the fire, the army said.

Israeli tanks take out Syrian mortars shelling Golan ~ link ~ Another shell landed near the Israeli defense position at El Hazaka on the Golan Monday, Nov. 12, less than 24 hours after Damascus promised through UNDOF peacekeepers to silence the mortar battery responsible for “stray shells” landing in Israel. The promise was delivered after Israel fired a Tamuz guided missile 4 kilometers into Syria as a warning shot. So Monday, Israeli tank guns opened fire on Syrian army positions and knocked out the battery responsible for sending shells across the border into Israel.
debkafile’s military sources: While Israel accepted the first three incidents as accidental intrusions from the Syrian civil war, the shell fired Monday was seen as a deliberate act of provocation. 

Netanyahu: Israel ready to fight for defense of the South - with video ~ link ~ Taking the irresistible bait...hook, line and sinker.   Stirling    

Judging from statements by government officials Monday, indications were that Israel would begin a military campaign against Gaza Arab terrorists sooner rather than later, analysts said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who met with foreign ambassadors stationed in Israel, said that Israel could no longer tolerate the incessant rocket attacks on Israel by Gaza Arab terrorists. If Hamas did not stop the attacks, Israel would have to act, he said.

Netanyahu, along with Homefront Security Minister Avi Dichter, met with some 100 foreign diplomats in Ashkelon, one of the cities that have in the past been targeted by Gaza Arab terrorists, and which has been hit dozens of times by Grad and Katyusha rockets and mortar shells.

Cameron's fresh military adventurism hits a snag ~ link ~  The last thing the British people need, want or can afford is to jump head first into the Third World War!!!   Stirling    
British Prime Minister David Cameron’s fresh military adventurism to launch an invasion against Syria has hit a snag after it was revealed that his own top brass are against such an idea.

Cameron had ordered senior military planners to consider contingencies for a military invasion of the Middle Eastern country, but top brass “are dead set against the idea”, The Sun reported.

The report contradicts an earlier piece which quoted Chief of the Defense Staff General Sir David Richards as saying that the UK is considering contingency plans to take a full-blown military action against Syria instead of trying to organize the country’s rebel groups.

“The situation this winter I think may deteriorate and may well provoke calls to intervene in a limited way,” General Richards had told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show.

The Sun’s report quoted a military source as saying: “When one Brigadier heard the news Cameron wanted an armed solution his response was, ‘you and whose Army?’”

The source added: “They don’t want to get embroiled in another war when they’re already stretched beyond capacity.”

The news comes as Defence Secretary Philip Hammond and Foreign Secretary William Hague are also thought to oppose military intervention in Syria.

Because, they believe, Syria is a totally different prospect to Libya since President Bashar al-Assad has formidable armed forces as well as Russian backing. 

Most Americans oppose Israel's attack on Iran ~ link ~ Most Americans believe that Washington should discourage Israel from attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities, a recent survey says.

The poll of 737 respondents, conducted by the University of Maryland’s Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) between Sep. 27 and Oct. 2, 2012, showed that 63 percent of respondents believe that the US should discourage Israel from attacking Iran while 33 percent said the US should encourage Israel to attack Iran’s nuclear program.

Four percent said they had no answer to the question.

The participants were also asked about the outcome of an Israeli strike on Iran by giving their opinion on: 1) Iran's possible attack on the US bases in the region and subsequent engagement of the US, and 2) possibility of sudden upsurge in international oil prices.

Seventy percent of the respondents said Iran would attack US bases in the region and drag the US into a new war, 23 percent maintained that Iran was not probable to engaged with US, and 7 percent did not answer the question.

As for the impact of Iran attack on global oil prices, 86 percent said prices would sharply rise, 9 percent said the price hike would not be remarkable, and 5 percent had no answer to the question. 
Fierce fighting on Turkish-Syrian border risks igniting broader conflict ~ link ~ Syrian shelling and airstrikes targeting rebel positions on the Turkish border have killed at least 12 people. NATO vowed to “do what it takes to defend Turkey” as fighting on the Turkish-Syrian border risks sparking a broader regional conflagration.

A Syrian fighter jet reportedly bombed the rebel-held position three times on Monday, killing more than a dozen people in the frontier town of Ras al-Ayn, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said. A Turkish official told AP on condition of anonymity that 70 people injured in the airstrike had been brought to Turkey for treatment, where eight more of them died.
