Chemical weapons out of Assad’s hands, therefore, is a net gain – that is the good news.Bad news for Israel but most Syrian probably don't think so.Hence the regime change agenda pushed by NATO and Israel
The bad news, however, is that Assad is left standing.(!!!!)
The message of his surviving this whole incident as president of Syria is that – yes – in the 21st century you can wipe out entire neighborhoods and cities, use missiles, planes, artillery fire and even sarin gas to indiscriminately kill your own people, and still be allowed to rule.(!!!!)No evidence that anyone other then rebels used any chemical weapons. And by the way Israel does a whole heck of a lot of indiscriminate killing including the use of chems..
Cause it's all about Israel?
That Assad is left standing, and may even end up remaining in power, is bad for Israel because it sends the following reassuring message to those in the neighborhood – particularly Iran – either perpetrating heinous acts or contemplating them: No worries, this world won’t interfere, you can get away with it.(!!!!!!)
Even if Assad has to forfeit his WMD stockpile, he will still literally get away with murder because – to borrow loosely from Bruce Springsteen’s song “Born in the USA” – “He’s still there, they’re all gone.” (!!!!)Get away with murder? He'll just have pushed back the invaders.
Ever since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war more than two years ago, many asked who Israel wanted to prevail. Did Jerusalem prefer Assad, the predictable “devil it knew,” or the motley crew of rebels fighting him who could conceivably bring to power Muslim Brotherhood elements or – worse – al- Qaida? (!!!!!)Mentioned this spin lie about 'the devil it knew' just yesterday!)
More than 100,000 dead Syrians later, including a few thousand killed by deadly gas, there is increasingly a feeling among some key policy makers in Jerusalem that it simply cannot get any worse than Assad. (!!!!)Israel wants regime change
Assad is one of the most brutal and dangerous leaders on the planet; (As opposed to Netanyahu?) one without restraints; one who is now turning his country from an Iranian proxy into an Iranian client state. (!!!!!) If he survives, it will be because of Russian political cover and Iranian and Hezbollah physical and material assistance.
True, the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaida would definitely – if they ever gained control of Syria – cause Israel fits. (!!!!! )If that was the case why is Israel presently and previously providing MB, AQ and al Nusra support at the Golan border?
True, they could turn the Golan border, so quiet under Assad and his father since the Yom Kippur War in 1973, into a living hell. (!!!!!)Israel has already turned the Golan border into a living hell. For Syria.
But even though the Sunni terror and jihadist groups like Hamas and al-Qaida threaten Israel and cause enormous problems, the main peril to Israel right now is not the Sunni terrorists but rather the possibility of an Iranian-led Shi’ite axis– one that soon could be armed with nuclear weapons – stretching from Iran through Iraq, Syria and into Lebanon.Highlighted: a moment of truth. Israel is NOT bothered by the “jihadis” because they are on the same team, opposed to Iran and killing Shi’ites. And Christians. Win/win for Israel
Let no one be distracted by the current events in Syria and Egypt: Iran remains Israel’s principal threat today, a threat that becomes existential if it gains nuclear arms. As such, anything that benefits Iran is bad for Jerusalem. Assad remaining in power benefits Iran, it is another link in the Iranian-Syrian-Hezbollah axis of evil.Israel acknowledges Iran does not have nuclear arms. And Israel acknowledges that Iran challenges Israel's dominance in the middle east.
As horrible as it might be, even a Muslim Brotherhood or al-Qaida controlled Syria might be the lesser of two evils for Israel since at least the Iranian propelled Shi’ite arc would be broken, and Iran would be weakened. A toppled Assad is a weakened Hezbollah and a weakened Iran, and that is a net gain.Way back I did a post about Israel loving Jihadis. If I can find it????? I'll do a relink
The bad news in the Russian-brokered deal currently under discussion is that Assad remains at the helm. This is bad not only because a man who murdered so many will remain standing to kill another day, but also because Iran will retain a vital strategic ally. And, of course, Iran is the much more significant game right now for Israel than even Syria.Yup, the road to Tehran runs through Damascus and Israel wants Syria flattened! Yesterday!
Opposition laments positive attitude toward Russian compromise, urges US to revert back to attack plans.
'Neutralizing Assad's chemical weapons serves Israel, not the Syrian people,' rebel commander says
Opposition source says Israel needs to prove its good intentions, persuade world to intervene in Syrian war
Syria's opposition and rebel forces are fuming over US President Barack Obama and the West's handling of the Syrian crisis, specifically the latest developments regarding the US attack on Syria.
“If Israel wants to prove it has good intentions toward the Syrian people it must urge the international community to intervene in Syria," a senior official in the Syrian opposition told Ynet Sunday.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that Israel must urge intervention in order to "save Syria and the Syrian people and prevent Syria's fall."
These two preceding pieces from Ynet can be considered nothing but propaganda promoting war for the benefit of Israel, but, downplaying the very benefit to Israel by claiming this deal does not serve the Syrian people.
This deal serves the civilians just fine. This deal does not serve Israel’s political class and the Syrian opposition is promoting Israel’s agenda.
