WASHINGTON — The Middle East led the agenda Monday afternoon when US President Barack Obama held his annual pre-Rosh Hashanah conference call with close to one thousand rabbis from America’s Reform, Conservative, Orthodox and Reconstructionist communities.

The (US NEOCON BOMBED) Al-Sha’ayrat airbase was the place where Syria fired missiles at attacking Israeli warplanes, 2 weeks ago. Syria downed 1 of the 4 warplanes, hit another & forced the other 2 Jew jets to quickly fly out of Syrian airspace.


Reported: The Syrian air force has resumed flight operations at the same base the US struck with multiple cruise missiles on Friday.


Reported: "ISIS, Al-Qaeda Praise Trump's Attack" - Having perhaps lost the support of much of his anti-war base, Pres. Trump appears to have won praise from the media outlets of (the jihadists) ISIS & Al-Qaeda for his missile attacks on the Assad gov.


The cruise missile attacks on Syria by the US were launched on the 100th anniversary of the United States entering World War One.


Russian and US jets recently flew dangerously close in Syria a US official, Lt.-Gen. Jeff Harrigian, commander of US Air Force Central Command, reported today. Another senior official said that the US pilot could feel turbulence from the other plane.
