Regional, World War Possible As Israel Continues To Provoke Full Scale Confrontation With Syria

The war in Syria is heating up yet again with signs that the conflict may soon be about to take greater international dimensions. This is all due to greater Israeli participation and aggression in Syria against the Syrian military and on the behalf of terrorist organizations fighting against the Syrian government. The questions that remain, however, are whether or not the Israelis are willing to tempt the resolve of the anti-terrorist coalition of Syria, Hezbollah, Iran, and Russia and how steadfast that resolve of those powers might actually be.

In the past week, we have seen an escalation in the Syrian conflict the likes of which we have not seen in decades in terms of Israeli-Syrian tensions as well as the potential for a clash of nuclear world powers in the Middle East as a combat theatre

After a mobilization of U.S. troops near Manbij – designed to prevent the Syrian military from retaking the city and as a means to stop combat between Turkish and Kurdish forces – Israel launched an air attack on Syrian targets near Palmyra, the Zionist settler state’s furthest penetration into Syria yet. Israel claimed it was bombing an Iranian-Hezbollah weapons convoy while the Syrian government claimed Israel had targeted Syrian military positions who were in the process of combating ISIS. Regardless, Israel clearly violated international law and the concept of national sovereignty.

This time, however, Israel was not able to bomb and bail as they have done eleven times in the past as Syrian air defense systems were mobilized and an Israeli jet shot down as a result. This shoot down was apparently launched after the Syrian military informed the Russian military of its intention to shoot the Israeli planes down. It is assumed that the Russians did not object to the use of force.

Indeed, Russian Marines were only a few kilometers away from where the Syrian military was attacked. After the attack, the Russian government summoned the Israeli Ambassador, Gary Koren, to demand an explanation for the operation. This, in and of itself, is an unprecedented event.

Very soon after the shoot down, both Syria and Israel engaged in a war of words and threats regarding any future incidents. For instance, Israeli Defense Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, stated that, “The next time the Syrians use their air defence systems against our planes we will destroy them without the slightest hesitation.”

Syria’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Dr. Bashar al-Jaafari also responded to the incident with statements of his own.

“Putin sent a clear message,” he said. “The fact is that the Israeli ambassador [to Russia] was summoned for a conversation only a day after he submitted his credentials [to the Russian Foreign Ministry last Thursday], and was told categorically that this game is over.”

Jaafari pointed out that the attack has changed the rules of the game and that Syria will not sit idly by while Israel attacks its forces.

But, on Sunday, a new incident arose with the Israelis launching an airstrike in Quneitra, located in the Golan Heights. Syrian news media reported the incident first, saying that a militia commander had been killed in the strike. Lebanese television station, al-Mayadeen identified the man killed as Yasser Assayed, member of the National Defense Militia. He was a commander of the Golan Brigade, a Druze militia fighting alongside the Syrian military against terrorists. The assassination was allegedly conducted by virtue of an unmanned Israeli drone.

On March 19-20, Israel launched more airstrikes on the Lebanese-Syria border, supposedly targeting a Hezbollah weapons supply convoy.

On Monday, March 20, an Israeli drone was shot down over the Golan area allegedly by Syrian aerial defense systems. Hezbollah paraded pictures of the downed drone on its social media pages as proof of the shoot down, forcing Israel to admit that the UAV had indeed been brought down.

And the Israelis have yet to stop their aggression. In fact, despite having been warned by the Syrian government and having apparently angered Russia over the initial airstrikes, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is doubling down on the perceived Israeli right to bomb anyone anywhere anytime without consequences.

“If there is feasibility from an intelligence and military standpoint – we attack and so it will continue,” said Netanyahu during his visit to China. He added that he informed President Putin of Israel’s intentions.

On Wednesday, March 22, Israel launched more airstrikes deeper inside Syrian territory, targeting Syrian army posts near the capitol, Damascus. This marks the fourth Israeli airstrike operation in Syria within one week.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov stated that Russia is relying on Israel to abide by the agreements that were established during Netanyahu’s official state visit to Russia earlier in March where the two men held extensive talks regarding the Syrian crisis.

“We will judge not by their statements, but by their actions, to what extent our Israeli partners are sticking to these agreements,” said Lavrov.

Syrian President Assad told Russian MPs visiting Syrian that he is counting on Russia to do something about any further Israeli attacks on Syria and to assist Syria in avoiding a real full-scale war with Israel.

Israel has been regularly bombing Syria over the last decade with increasing attacks taking place since the Western-backed destabilization beginning in 2011. 2017, however, have seen the biggest concentration of attacks thus far.

But while the conflict between Syria and Israel heats up, the ever-present suicidal American readiness to fight and die to the last American to preserve Israel also comes into play. In the past, the United States, due to geopolitical interests at vastly higher levels than that of the Oval Office, the immense sums of money use to purchase members of congress, and the extraordinary religious brainwashing of many American Christians, the United States is always poised to leap into World War Three to protect the “little Jewish Ulster” and biggest destabilizing factor in the Middle East today.

Assad’s comments and Israel’s behavior reveals that a full-scale war is bubbling just below the surface, perhaps only hours away. Comments coming from a number of Israeli officials only a week ago has made it clear that Israel would naturally draw Hezbollah into such a war as well, perhaps involving Iran if for no other reason than the fact that Iran is the principal patron of the militia group. The question would then become whether or not Russia will simply allow Israel to undo all of the anti-terrorist work it has undertaken since it became involved militarily in Syria. The United States is another wild card, having instigated the entire crisis and having been an unwavering goon for Israel since the settler state’s beginnings. At this point, we would be witnessing the steep drop off to not only regional war but also potentially a world war of unimaginable proportions.

Hopefully, for the sake of the world, Russia will be able to talk Netanyahu from leading the world into conflagration but, given the Israeli penchant for being unreasonable, we at least hope that the United States will not sacrifice itself to become further embroiled in the Syrian conflict on Israel’s behalf.

    More from our “best buds” the Israelis who always seem to have our best and most peaceful interests at heart, don’t they?? That’s really nice of them. This must have been another “Obama approved” world wrecking opportunity that he and they have seldom missed out on.

    Here is a very interesting look at how Israel feels that ISIS should be handled:

    Apparently terrorism is fine as long as it serves Israel’s geopolitical agenda in the region.

    Always distorting and downright lying about what Israel is doing, which is fighting terrorism and helping in that effort, just as they said. Bunch of lying bigots. You claim to not like arab terrorists, but libel the only ally we have fighting them in that area that is reliably on our side. You are anti semites and don’t think you are fooling anyone.

    • NoOneYouKnow

      Does hasbara trolling pay well?

      • diogenes

        No. Servants pay is always low. But some people enjoy subjection, especially if it involves a chance to hate hate hate. A religious gratification, for some “religious” types.

    • Lynn Walker

      You and your lying countryment (Israel) are demons from hell, and will soon be returned to pit from which you came. You are cursed and all misfortune will descend upon you.

      Oh hang on… jewish people have a word for the rest of us: goyim – it effectively translates as dirty farm animals. We can be harmed, killed, our assets stolen – and this is all okay in the eyes of the jewish and their god, and they will not be held liable in this life or the afterlife by their jewish supremacist god. And yet you people have the cunning to spread the “muslim extremist” myth? You people have the audacity to call us racist anti semites (a strategy admitted to be fake)? One slogan by Israel’s Mossad sums it up nicely: By way of deception thou shalt do war. DECEPTION. Your deceptions are not as effective any more, people are wising up. Good. People are starting to see who the REAL dirty, inhumane and uncivilised farm animals are – humanity would be miles ahead without those people.

      • Bob

        Oh by the way… go to jim sto ne. is. and check out some lovely acts of Israel and jewish:

        Fukushima was a terrorist act by the Zionist state to stop Japan from enriching uranium for Iran.
        A rabbi did an interview and admitted sacrificing our children for their Easter celebrations – they often dispose of the bodies in the meat processing businesses, which is why human DNA has been documented to have been found in McDonalds burgers. Quote: “You are eating your own children for lunch”. I suggest EVERYONE track down that audio interview – type “Turner radio interview Rabbi Finkelstein” into your search engine.

        And these people are the self proclaimed “superior” humans…

    • Real American

      The israelis aren’t even semites, or jews, for the most part. True Jews deny the return to the homeland and those who settled there are virtually all of ashkenazi descent, which for those who aren’t aware, are a group of murderous, plundering pirates who were forced to convert to some religion under threat of death from the Russian Czar, so they chose judaism.

      More significantly, the criminal cabal of ashkenazi bankers headed by Baron Rothschild, are behind the creation of this stolen state of international war criminals. These bankers may still have your back for the moment, but the second a true American takes office as President one of the first orders of business will be the final extermination of your murderous thugs. If only the Czar had done the world a favor centuries ago.

      Israel is protecting the terrorists dear. And they have no authority attacking positions in Syria. If you want people to feel sorry for Israel, try a different approach.

      • I was paid 104000 dollars previous year by doing an on-line job as well as I was able to do it by w­orking in my own time f­o­r several hours each day. I used work opportunity I stumbled upon on the net and also I am delighted that I was able to make such decent earnings. It is actually newbie-friendly and I’m so pleased that I found out about it. Find out more about exactly what I do…

        The funny thing is that there are innumerable Jews that agree with us about Israel’s evil policies , and they get slammed as being ” self-hating Jews ” ( Why not “anti-semitic semites” ? )

  • David S

    Of course Israel is doing what it always does, but please don’t leave out the contribution by the most brutal, aggressive and terroristic nation on earth – the US government. They are doing MORE than their fair share to provoke WW3. Profits before Peace.

    • “That” US government is serving Israeli’s interest, what are you talking about.
      Jewish people nowadays are never to be justified for being Zionist.
      Of course not all the Jew are making lives by exploiting other beings, I know, but the fact is USA is serving Israel, not the opposite.

      • David S

        They are serving dual interests. Of course US actions in the middle east are all about Israeli and Saudi interests, but endless warfare profits US arms makers and US banking interests too. So I fully stand by my statement. And I never indicated in my post that they were not serving Israel.

        • I think your original statement can’t stand.
          I said “USA is serving Israel interest, not the opposite”.
          Not the opposite, everyone knows that, and when the thing is really so, who’s the one to make a command?
          It’s Tel Aviv, not Washington.
          How do you think USA is rendering godzillion tribute money to Israel, and when thing is so, who’s the one to make a command?
          Who serves who?
          Of course Washington is never innocent and so are American voters either.
          But Washington and Tel Aviv are never equal partners.

    Most religions seem awfully bloodthirsty. I see no reason to single out the Jewish religion for special condemnation in the bloodshed dept. What does seem clear is that the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel all work together to serve the deep state’s common evil in the world.

    Israel is claiming the same BS as Obama did (and now Trump does). The world is their battlefield and they will do what they wish to whomever they wish. This means the poor will suffer. The earth will suffer.

    No “leader” of any nation should hold this power. They should be condemned for exercising it. Preferably they should be put on trial for war crimes. And yes, some people in Israel do object to war crimes as do some people in the US.

    The behavior of aggressor nations is appalling. For that, I have no words.

    Putin does what Netanyahu tells him to do.
