RT sources: Syrian rebels plan chem attack on Israel from Assad-controlled territories
RT ^ | 09/10/2013 | RT

Posted on 09/10/2013 1:04:59 AM PDT by TexGrill

A chemical attack may be launched on Israel by Syrian rebels from government-controlled territories as a "major provocation," multiple sources told RT.

The report comes as Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov proposed that Syria puts its chemical weapons arsenal under international control for subsequent destruction in order to prevent a possible military strike against the war-torn country.

Moscow also urged Syrian authorities to join the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. The offer has already been passed over to Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Muallem, who met Lavrov in Moscow for talks on Monday.

“We don’t know if Syria will accept the offer, but if imposing international control over chemical weapons stored in the country can help to avoid military strikes, we are immediately going to start working with Damascus,” Lavrov said.

The Syrian Foreign Ministry has welcomed Moscow's initiative, “based on the Syrian’s government care about the lives of our people and security of our country,” Muallem said later on Monday.

Meanwhile, US National Security Adviser Susan Rice made a statement saying that Damascus' alleged "use of chemical weapons against its own people" posed a threat to US national security. “The use of chemical weapons also directly threatens our closest ally in the region, Israel,” she said, speaking at the New America Foundation in Washington.

If they dare to attack Israel with Chemical weapons they will seriously regret it as Israel has serious red lines, (not like Obambi’s prentend lines).

If attacked, Israel will go ape-sh*t on whomever carried it out with a relentless attack that NOBODY will be able to stop.

Bad move for the “rebels”...

Anyone else get the impression that this admin loves keeping Susan Rice in the dark, and out on a limb?

Hillary looked pretty silly as well...making her "major statement" hours after it already broke in the international news about the Russian deal.

Well then, if their attack is half-way effective, the Israelis might just nuke Damascus in response.

Hopefully, Charlie Rose will not be collateral, but if he is, that's how the cookie crumbled.

Do NOT visit the middle east.

That type of attack will come here too. If either side wants to start something or just flex their anger it will be brought here too and as weak and disjointed our readiness is no one thinks they have much to lose or risk.

How much worse do you think they will be in as compared to now on either side?

The “rebels” are Islamic alqeuda terrorists ,most are not even syrian .so you buy the liberal media spin that it is syria using chemical weapons and so you want to nuke the Syrian capital where there are Christians and assad’s secular government.

If Muslim terrorists come to texas and strike at Mexico then you want to nuke Texas?

Obama and the media are on the side of the islamic terrorists who did 9/11 and who used chemical weapons in Syria. if islamic terrorists strike anywhere the correct retaliation is to nuke Mecca in Saudi arabia

Well, the Syrians are guilty of tolerating their government. That makes them expendable if their government threatens Israel. Just as the residents of certain Jap cities needed incineration, when their government continued to threaten ours, having inconveniently failed to surrender when the game was obviously up.

If Muslim terrorists come to texas and strike at Mexico then you want to nuke Texas?

Nah. Hit Mexico, DF first. (Hint: Mehico doesn't have nukes).

Obama and the media are on the side of the islamic terrorists who did 9/11 and who used chemical weapons in Syria. if islamic terrorists strike anywhere the correct retaliation is to nuke Mecca in Saudi arabia

Now you're talkin! Saudi Arabia is the center of the Islamic problem.

Assad has kept peace between Christians ,Jews and Muslims in Syria for a long time. Islamic terrorists started the “civil” war and if the terrorists win as Obama and the media want then those terrorists will install an Islamic state in Syria and genocide the Christians there .Obama and the islamic terrorists and the media framed Assad as they framed the Serbs in 1990s. you wanting to nuke syria just kills assad and his government and does what Obama and the Islamic terrorists want. any of you should look up that in the 1990’s the media and clinton framed the Christian Serbs for ethnic cleansing in bosnia. and then clinton bombed christian churches . democrats never change they always help islamic terrorists and genocide Christians

RT is not an objective news source anymore than the US mainstream media is one. They’re serving the purposes of the Russian secret service. The MSM is serving the interest of the Democratic National Committee.

You're a moron, albeit a persistent one.

Stupid they. They needed to overthrow Assad and install a Christian government.

They may not have been against Assad's religion, but neither were they of any importance to him.

it’s your islamic terrrorist idiots who used chemical weapons and who started the “civil” war.

Get it right, moron.

The civil war happened first. The chemical weapons happened later, regardless of who actually used them.

Assad is guilty of at least acquiring chemical weapons, if not actually using them. Of course, the intended target of those weapons was always Israel. But sh¡t happens in war, and Syrian children died. Tragic, but far better than Israeli children! Maybe it was Assad who ordered it. Maybe it was rebels who had captured the weapons. WTF cares? Certainly not this taxpayer!!

This is from the ever-reliable “Russia Today”, which is part of the propaganda machine spreading the BS about Assad’s regime’s chemical weapons attack that killed more than 1400 Syrians. And no, the victims weren’t “children abducted by rebels”.

Assad’s regime has killed over 100,000 Syrians; Putin has killed untold numbers inside the old Soviet borders (including in Georgia) in his drive to resurrect the Soviet Union; he’s an old KGB hand, a Communist, an atheist, and cares no more about Christianity than Stalin cared about free markets when he allowed farmers to grow and sell as much as they could in order to stave off famine — then crushed them after the crisis was past.

The international community KNOWS the difference between a civil war and an attack on an independent foreign State. We will protect Israel.

The whole Zionist enterprise revolves around Jewish self-defense - not relying on others for protection.

Modern (Israeli) Jews know they cannot rely on Obama now or in the future. The die is cast.

These Jews will not wait for a second Holocaust as promised by the Iranians.

The “International Community” (IC) was not there for the Jews 1933-1945 and again 1948.

The IC is not there now for the Syrians, Iraqis, Lebanese, Egyptians, Libyans, Yemenites, Iranian masses or the Algerians.

They are certainly not there for the Jews of Israel.

The UN can do nothing (DN rather than UN).

NOBODY can guarantee Israel's survival that so many want to snuff out other than the Israel Defense Forces.

There are US administrations that Israel knows she has a friend. The there are administrations that are openly hostile. The current administration is hostile and Netanyahu must be reviewing HIS options now, on the table that Obama refuses to even look at...
