al-Nusra Front Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“The al Nusra Front has been designated as a Terrorist organisation by ” the United Nations, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Russia, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Turkey.”
This is the US Law regarding the provision of material support to terrorists.
“8 U.S. Code S 2339B – Providing material support or resources to designated foreign terrorist organizations”
(a) Prohibited Activities.—
(1) Unlawful conduct.— Whoever knowingly provides material support or resources to a foreign terrorist organization, or attempts or conspires to do so, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 15 years, or both, and, if the death of any person results, shall be imprisoned for any term of years or for life. To violate this paragraph, a person must have knowledge that the organization is a designated terrorist organization (as defined in subsection (g)(6)), that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorist activity (as defined in section 212(a)(3)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act), or that the organization has engaged or engages in terrorism (as defined in section 140(d)(2) of the Foreign Relations Authorization Act, Fiscal Years 1988 and 1989).”
New UN report reveals collaboration between Israel and Syrian rebels – Middle East – Jerusalem Post.html
“Now, a report from the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) reveals that Israel has been working closely with Syrian rebels in the Golan Heights and have kept close contact over the past 18 months. The report was submitted to the UN Security Council at the beginning of the month.”
“The documents show that Israel has been doing more than simply treating wounded Syrian civilians in hospitals. This and a few past reports have described transfer of unspecified supplies from Israel to the Syrian rebels, and sightings of IDF soldiers meeting with the Syrian opposition east of the green zone, as well as incidents when Israeli soldiers opened up the fence to allow Syrians through who did not appear to be injured.”
“The report said UNDOF “observed at least 10 wounded persons being transferred by armed members of the opposition from the Bravo side across the cease-fire line.”
UN Report Israel in Regular Contact with Syrian Rebels including ISIS
“The UN report also laid out instances where in Israeli army was seen interacting with armed rebels. In one incident, the report claimed that the IDF gave some boxes to the Syrian armed rebels.”
Obviously, the State of Israel is never going to be tried in a US court and the legality of such proceedings would be highly questionable.
However, Israel’s well documented support of al Nusra Front should be grounds for the State Department to list Israel as a State Sponsor of Terrorism and continued US financial support of the Israeli military should be contingent on an end to the Israeli assistance to the al Nusra Front and IS, proscribed Terrorist groups the United States is currently at war with in Syria and Iraq.
