Arming the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) Strengthens Israel

The AANES (Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria) is effectively for all practical purposes in geostrategic terms an outpost of Israel. While the relationship between the AANES and Israel is covert and not officially acknowledged, the AANES always relies on advocacy by the organized Jewish community in the United States to get its message across in Washington. Otherwise it would have been very difficult for the AANES to get a fair hearing in Washington considering the many paid voices and pencils of Erdogan in the United States. Yet even the organized Jewish community in the United States does not openly advocate for the AANES but does so quietly just in the same manner as it quietly advocates for the KRG (Kurdistan Regional Government) of the KRI (Kurdistan Region of Iraq). There is no question that strengthening Kurdish interests in the Middle East very significantly strengthens Israel. In the same manner, arming the Kurds is tantamount to arming Israel. The United States should arm the Kurds with heavy weapons and with particular urgency the SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces), the army of the AANES as this will heavily tilt the balance of power in the region in favor of Israel which is an American interest indeed.
