Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon said the Russian missile systems had not yet left Russia. "I hope they will not leave, and if, God forbid, they reach Syria, we will know what to do," he said.
As part of alleged deal, Russia has given Israel codes to TOR-M1 defense system while Israel has provided Russia with codes to hack UAV spy planes it sold to Georgia, according to email exchange between employees at global intelligence firm Stratfor.

Israel may already have the codes to crack into Iran’s anti-aircraft missile defense systems, according to WikiLeaks, which on Tuesday continued to publish email conversations by employees from the Texas-based Stratfor global intelligence firm.

Perhaps the Israeli people might think a tad differently from their government when it issues such bumptious threats.
Israel had people on the streets protesting about the increase to their cost of living. So how many people living there are going to want their hard earned tax wasted on bombing a neighbour and consequently offending one of the most powerful nations in the world, whom is also allied to China.
Israel gets so much Western aid purely because of its strategic position but the self-proclaimed 'chosen' have been losing the popularity battle and may find that although allied governments might wish to help them back up their threats, a large majority of their own voters won't want their governments involved.
I suspect many people wish that a big enough dummy could be found to push into the mouths of meddling, sabre rattling politicians whose ego's are far more important to them personally, than the people they are supposed to represent and verbally put at risk.
(NBCNEWS.com)-A senior Israeli defense official warned on Tuesday that Russia’s plan to send sophisticated anti-aircraft weapons systems to Syria’s President Bashar Assad was a “threat” and signaled Israel could take some form of unspecified action in response.

Russia will drop the missles off get paid and most likely call up Israel and give them the location so they can destroy them. For Russia its win win. They get paid and they also get to keep close ties with Israel and that military tech they need so badly from them. Syria gets screwed of course but a dying regime just a chance to milk it dry before it crashes.
