Salafists in Jordan say after the overthrow of Assad in Syria, Tel Aviv is next

They make no bones about their plans, yet no one will address his words of hatred.  These Salafists are supporting the same Syrian rebels that Obama and the West are, will Obama now distance himself from the Islamists and pull support for the Free Syrian Army?  Unlikely, as we refuse to believe that those fighting Assad could be anything but our partners.  No one remembers Afghanistan in the 80s when we supported the mujahideen in their fight against the USSR.  The mujahideen became the Taliban after the defeat of the Soviets, and took all those weapons we gave them and turned them on us.  That lesson seems lost in another round of useless posturing, and the blind faith that we can win by using the enemy of our enemy.  It never works for the long term, but we never learn.

'First we take Damascus, then Tel Aviv'

The leader of the radical Salafist movement in Jordan, whose organization actively supports the Syrian rebels' efforts to topple President Bashar Assad's regime warned Sunday that once the Damascus opposition achieves its primary goal, it will set its sights on Israel.
The group's leader, Abed Shihadeh, who is also known as Abu Muhammad al-Tahawi, spoke at the funeral of a Jihadist who committed a suicide attack in Amman last week.

"We tell Benjamin Netanyahu, the (Israeli) prime minister, get ready. The army of the Prophet Mohammad is coming your way."

But it has nothing to do with Islam.
Shihadeh added: "Those carrying explosives in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan will find you, Allah willing," he added. "The next fight is between us and you."

The jihadist leader further pledged to "Take over Damascus and then head to Tel Aviv… As far as we are concerned, Palestine stretches from river to sea, from Rafah to a-Nakura. We will not rest until Palestine is liberated."

Commenting on the United States' decision to add the al Qaeda-linked Syrian rebel group Jabhat al-Nusra to its terror watch list, Shihadeh said that "Allah blesses the heroes of Jabhat al-Nusra.

"America is the mother of all terror in the world," he added, further blaming the US for "standing by Assad and the Jews."
