A militant Palestinian group in Damascus said it is forming combat units to try to recapture Israeli-occupied territory, in particular the Golan Heights, after Syrian President Bashar Assad and Hezbollah said that they would support such operations.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC) said it was preparing for new operations after nearly 40 years of quiet on the Israel-Syria border.
"The leadership of the PFLP-GC announces that it will form brigades to work on liberating all violated (Israeli-occupied) territories, first and foremost the occupied Golan," it said in a statement late on Friday.
"The Popular Front's leaders have opened the door to all Syrian citizens to volunteer in the formation of the resistance."
Assad was quoted by state media as saying he would turn the Golan into a "resistance front" and would allow combatants to attack Israel from the area.
Hezbollah, which fought a 34-day war with Israel in 2006 and is believed to coordinate with the PFLP-GC, turned up the rhetoric further by saying it would support any such operations.
Yes, the same group that the U.S. fully supported in their quest for power.
The rally comes a day after Yusuf al-Qaradawi, an influential Muslim cleric and Brotherhood ally, crossed to the Palestinian Gaza Strip to join a rally held by Hamas. At the rally, al-Qaradawi voiced support for militants who fire rockets at Israel and said the country has no right to exist.
Even as President Obama is following in Eurosocialist footsteps, the 14-year utopian experiment on a single currency is collapsing. The architect of the euro just ran up the white flag on the biggest policy mistakes in history. Former German Finance Minister Oskar Lafontaine called his own brainchild a "catastrophe".
Ordinary people are now suffering because of arrogant EU decisions taken in 1999. This is the "catastrophe" Lafontaine was describing. But he is a Eurocrat, after all, and he will never admit that he personally made any mistakes in launching this giant Hindenburg balloon in the first place.
Nobody is ever wrong in Europe, as in the Obama Administration. Even after admitting failure Mr. Lafontaine will not take responsibility for his brainchild. No, he tells us that he was right all along. Instead, Lafontaine blames other countries for "not acting rationally."
Europeans have been going along with the farce of pseudo-electoral governments. The European Union has no elected representatives with real power. Elected Members of European Parliament have no power. Unelected bureaucrats appointed by Germany and France have all the power. The EU has a nice building, but it's a pure front.
As a result, the fear and panic in Italy, Greece, Ireland, and the rest is not being heard by the ruling class in Brussels. Like bureaucrats throughout history, the EU is most interested in its own power and privileges. They are an unaccountable aristocracy.
Today we are seeing CYA all around. Britain, France and Germany are telling three different lies, which all leave them blameless. Millions of people are suffering and the elites only care about saving themselves.
