What threat does Isreal pose to Syria? hmm lets see..www.youtube.com...
I'm done with you man,i understand the situation in the middle east but this attack on Syria came completely unprovoked,you can point fingers to all sides usually but this time it's squarly on Israel.

I have no doubt they know when they are being provoked and I bet you will see them take a very stately demeanor until their bomb is ready.
I think Israel knows this, too! That is why I think Israel is stepping up and taking some limited actions now rather than waiting until Iran really could respond with devastating result. I don’t think Israel wants war; it does want to prevent Iran from having nukes.
I’m surprised anybody wants Iran to have nukes but there are many who think it’s a great idea (many on this site)!!
My biggest hope is that Iran is prevented from acquiring nukes and no matter what happens US isn’t drawn into another conflict. A nuclear Iran poses a much bigger threat to its neighbors in the region than it does to US, so ME countries should police their own neighborhood and US should stay out of it!!
If Isreal wanted Iran they would just hit Iran. It would not make very many people happy but, the US and the Arab states (on the DL) would have no choice but to support them and move against Iran.

With that logic,considering what Israel did to "illiminate a threat" ,it should be completely acceptable and come as no surprise that Syria/Iran should illiminate threats against them too,even if it means breaking international law.
What threat does Israel pose to Syria or Iran? Israel isn’t the one who backs terrorist organizations that fire rockets into other countries daily killing hundreds of innocent men, women and children each year.
What threat are Syria and Iran fighting against exactly by supporting Hezbollah and Hamas and their violent attacks??
edit on 8-5-2013 by seabag because: (no reason given)
PRESIDENT Bashar al-Assad's regime has given a Palestinian militant group permission to set up missiles to attack Israel in the wake of recent Israeli airstrikes on the Syrian capital, a spokesman for the group has said.
How do you "daily kill hundreds each year?" Do you mean that every day, hundreds are killed, or that hundreds are killed every year, and some of it happens every day?
Oh, btw, I think you mean "a few" people are killed every year, because that's what the actual statistics are.en.wikipedia.org...

I mean, isn't it just possible that they didn't want Hezbollah to have these weapons? If somebody is giving a gun to someone who hates me, I'd love to have the opportunity to airstrike the weapon from their hand.
According to this report, the recent air strikes by Israel against Syrian targets have one goal in mind - to topple Syria and draw Iran into an open confrontation. This would give the US and NATO the pretext for an all-out invasion of Iran.
Sounds like a smart move by Israel rather than an intentional provocation of Iran!
