Two items from Asharq al-Awsat English (Zvi)

From Zvi:

Egypt: Sinai jihadists planning attack on Israel
"Egyptian security sources revealed that a number of Sinai-based jihadists had completely disappeared, increasing the likelihood of a retaliatory strike being carried out against Israel following the killing of two prominent Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip last week. The Egyptian security source also informed Asharq Al-Awsat that Cairo was in the possession of information confirming the presence of a terrorist sleeper cell in hiding in the mountains of the Sinai Peninsula, adding this sleeper cell was awaiting “zero hour” to launch their retaliatory attack."
May the terrorist cell be quickly flushed out and cut down before they can hurt anyone on either side of the border. May their fall expose the monsters who stand behind them.

"This is a message from the poet about the tragedy of the Levant, almost one thousand years ago, tears and blood and war! However in the end, the sun will shine over the Levant, long after the invaders have been repelled, whether this is the Crusaders or Moscow, Washington, Tehran and the Southern Suburbs of Beirut!"
If anyone still believes that Israel is the problem in the modern middle east, then they should read this one.
If anyone still believes that President Obama and Hillary Clinton have improved anything at all by abandoning US allies, ignoring the actions of devoted enemies of the US, and disengaging from the region, then they should read this one.
If anyone still believes that the EU deserves a peace prize after its greed-inspired sandbagging of stronger sanctions efforts against the Iranian regime and its refusal to act against Hezbollah, then they should read this one.
The Islamic Republic of Iran isn't just the enemy of Israel; it is - have no doubt - the broadly acknowledged enemy of most of its Arab neighbors. And as they watch the US dance around and restrain all moves against the Iran-Syria axis, as innocent blood continues to flow in the streets of Aleppo and Homs, as Hezbollah proves to the region that it is indeed a branch of the Iranian military and will kill not only its fellow Lebanese but also the citizens of other Arab countries, those who have broadly pinned their hopes on the US are screaming with frustration and anger.
This cannot possibly end well.
