You can't learn anything from the media. Here's what's really happening in the Middle East:
There's big talk in the USA about fighting ISIS, but in effect, they're doing nothing to stop the ISIS butchers. Do you know who's really fighting ISIS? Assad in Syria. Who is keeping Assad afloat? Putin in Russia. As it turns out, the Russians, not the USA, are confronting ISIS. And, by the USA supporting the Syrian rebels, they are now in full support of Al Nusra, the Syrian Al Qaida, which now controls Israel's northern border. The USA has no idea what's flying in the Middle East, and Israel ends up paying the price. The UN peacekeeping force has now left the Golan.
Now we can see how Hashem turns everything around for the good. Now that Al Nusra controls the border with Israel, not even the most liberal leftist in Israel would consider giving up the beautiful Golan, which is well inside the biblical borders of the Land of Israel and an integral part of our holy homeland.
