Israel Working With Al-Qaeda? « LobeLog

But Smith’s article is important, and not only for helping to confirm (and in The Weekly Standard no less!) reports of Israel’s effective cooperation (even sharing intelligence!) with al-Nusra/al-Qaeda. Without necessarily meaning to, the article also justifies the realpolitik that underpins Israel’s position, which, notwithstanding Smith’s weasel-worded subtitle, boils down to “the enemy of my enemy is someone I can work with.” For Israel, the “Iranian axis” poses a greater threat than al-Qaeda, so it offers the latter some cooperation and assistance, at least for now. But for western nations, including the United States, the logic of working out some coordination with Iran and its allies against al-Qaeda and its affiliates is much more compelling. (The same logic may also apply to Iran’s relationship with al-Qaeda.)

But when Bibi starts talking about how Iran is the world’s greatest state sponsor of terrorism, I hope someone will ask what’s going on in the Golan.
