BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:10 A.M.) – The Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a powerful attack against the jihadist rebels in the western countryside of Aleppo on Friday.

According to a military communique, the Russian Aerospace Forces strategically bombed a weapons depot and headquarters belonging to the Turkish-backed Jabhat Tahrir Souriya group inside the west Aleppo town of Urum Kubra.

The communique added that the Russian Aerospace Forces destroyed both the jihadist weapons depot and headquarters on Friday, causing a massive explosion that could be heard from several kilomters away.

This strike by the Russian Aerospace Forces marks the first time in several months that they have targeted the jihadist rebels in west Aleppo.

The reason for the absence of Russian jets in west Aleppo is due to the large presence of Turkish Army soldiers near the strategic Aleppo-Damascus Highway.

However, when the Russian forces receive direct coordinates of a jihadist site, they will attack their positions.

Not every Jew is a Zionist and not every Zionist is a Jew. Anti-zioinism is not antisemitism. Also anti-zionism is not pro muslim. Christian Zionism is not the same as Jewish Zionism. Christian Zionism existed before Jewish Zionism. Zionism was Protestant Heresy that started in the late 1500’s. Although it is a theological heresy it has geopolitical implications which is another factor driving US foreign policy. Christian Zionism is a warmonger heresy.

yes it is. Martin Luther was about to be ex-comminated for being a heretic which is the reason he left the church.

There are many definitions. 1.) In the sense of the Old Testament, an Israelite or Jew is one who is a member of God’s chosen people. This sense now applies only to Christians, members of the Church, God’s enhanced chosen people. 2.) In the sense of the Middle Ages, a Jew is one who follows and believes in the religion made-up by the Rabbis, i.e. those Israelite scholars of the 1st and 2nd centuries who rejected Jesus. 3.) In the modern sense, a Jew is one who identifies culturally with the religion named under 2, without necessarily believing in it.… Read more »

I was referring to groups #2 and #3.
In Israel 70% are atheists OR “secular”. Group #2, some Orthodox Jews are Anti-Zionist for theological reasons as they believe Zionism is a gnostic heresy and some reformist Jews are anti-Zionist for other reasons. I have never heard of group #1
