Australia is actively assisting ISIS and Al Qaeda in Syria while jailing it’s citizens for doing the same. It has always supported Israel in it’s support of terrorists as well.(ODT)
“The US is warning Syria against attempting to recover lands lost to rebels south of Damascus.
Some of those rebels are ISIL or affiliated in some way to al-Qaeda. That is, the US is now doing the opposite of what it said it was going in to Syria to do.
Observers suspect that the US is simply running interference for the Israelis, who have occupied part of the Golan Heights and the permanent annexation of which the US is preparing to recognize. The Israeli government does not want Syria going south because they don’t trust Damascus to keep the Lebanese Shiite militia, Hizbullah, away from the Israeli border. The de facto Syrian side of the Golan is largely held by the a group (formerly known as Nusra Front) with ties to al-Qaeda.
That doesn’t sound like self-defense.
So de facto, the US and Israel are protecting some al-Qaeda fighters (among a large number of non-extremists).
Mission creep can go very wrong very quickly, as the US discovered in Vietnam.”
