'If NATO attacks Syria, we'll fire missiles at Tel Aviv' (Syria's Assad)
Jerusalem Post ^ | 10/4/2011 | Staff

Posted on 10/04/2011 10:37:20 AM PDT by mojito

Syrian President Bashar Assad warned western countries on Tuesday that if Syria comes under NATO attack it would fire missiles at Tel Aviv, Iranian semi-official news agency FARS reported.

During a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmad Davutoglu, Assad allegedly threatened: "If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than 6 hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv."

According to the report, Assad also reiterated that Damascus will call on Hezbollah to launch such an intensive rocket and missile attack on Israel.

"All these events will happen in three hours, and in the following three hours, Iran will attack the US warships in the Persian Gulf and the US and European interests will be targeted simultaneously," Assad said, according to FARS.

Assad's comments came as Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday he would set out his country's plans for sanctions against Syria after he visits a Syrian refugee camp near the border in the coming days.

The move heralds a further deterioration in previously friendly relations between Ankara and Damascus since the start of Assad's crackdown on protesters.

I suppose we should all come to expect this of any Moslem nation: "Attack us and we will shoot at Israel."

It starts at the top. Assad may have hit on a way to keep Obama from hiding behind NATO, as he did in Libya. Of course, this assumes that Obama wouldn’t regard an attack on Israel as acceptable collateral damage.

...which would likely be the last thing that (Syria's Assad) does.

If assad intends to do damage, he must fire a LOT of missiles...

...maybe his entire arsenal since the ability to fire any more after the first volley will be gone.

Um, ok. So NATO just flatens the Goland Height too. As and added kick in the b@lls, Israel gets to then build more settlements.

Sounds fair. Of course, the Israelis may see fit to do some above-ground nuclear testing in Damascus.

I’m also wondering what makes this clown think his “hundreds of rockets and missiles” will make it to the Golan in any conditions to launch.

if Syria comes under NATO attack

If Syria attacks Israel, they will be leveled and that is without King Obama's communists refusal to give Israel its backing.

good luck with that

I have a feeling that sooner or later Israel will have to set about 10 Muslim capitols ablaze with radioactive fire.

The Arab world has never had a republican nor democratic form of government. Assay may no be a great guy, but we have no business getting involved there. Instability in the Middle East began with Carter throwing the Shaggy of Iran under the bus.

That might work, if the President and Sec State gave one whit about Israel.

If you look it up you will find that I said, obummer and NATO’s illegal war in Libya would result in everybody in the small countries developing a dead mans trigger for stand off warfare. They have no other option to protect themselves.

for your review & possible ping.

Kind of confused, though, since that guy from Turkey hates Israel as well.

I seem to remember a prophecy about Damascus being utterly erased.

Isaiah, I think...

Awh man, if only the Bible said something unambiguous about what would happen to Syria in this situation.

“If NATO attacks Syria, we’ll fire missles at Tel Aviv”

Damascus will become a parking lot.

Not that I'm for any sort of "NATO" attack (Wasn't NATO supposed to be a defensive alliance?) on Syria, but if Assad is planning on launching missiles toward Tel Aviv, he would best be advised to move historical artifacts and population well distant from Damascus.

Far less likely than a NATO attack. Assad knows the IDF will be in Damascus within days, unless they decide to clear Lebanon, in which case it might be a week. Rallies support domestically though.

Ass-ad has not figured out this is EXACTLY what NATO expects of him.

Attack on Israel by proxy, step 5

1. NATO removes Mubarak and make Israel's western and southern border vulnerable.

2. Arm AQ from looted Libya stockpiles

3. NATO distracts Israel navy and IAF with NATO's Turkey forces. Israels maritime and northern border threatened.

4. NATO stirs trouble in Israel internally with Soros mobs.

5. NATO attacks Syria and makes Syria fire first shot on Israel. Israel retaliates heavily.

6. Iran brought into the fray.

7. Israel attacks Iran, all Mooslime countries attack Israel.

8. Nuclear winter.

TO avert this, Natanyahu should send envoys to Damascus, Tehran, Moscow and Beijing ASAP.

This would work nicely: If NATO attacks Syria, Israeli nuclear forces annihilate Turkish forces as a stern warning to NATO, threaten to destroy Aswan dam as a neighborly message to Egyptian MB and tell NATO to back off from ME.

Iran stays home intact and backs off from ME completely.

Israel intact. European NATO countries intact.

NATO collapses for failing to invoke Art. 6 and WW III is averted.

Doable, but not likely. Too many idiots in broke NATO countries who sincerely believe they can win nuclear war against Israel, Russia, India, Pakistan and China as a way out from financial misery.

The same military "geniuses" who could not defeat two-bit Gaddafi.

Golan Heights has been part of Israel since we kicked the butts of our Arab neighbors in the six-day war. The foolish president of Syria will need to stay on his side of the fence to play with his little rockets. One or two may slip through, but that’s all it will take before the IDF wipes them out. Same goes for Lebanon or any other terrorist-ridden country who intends to harm an Israeli citizen.

It would be one of the last things Assad would ever do. Isaiah 17 Assad; read it.

"If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than 6 hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv."

LOL! I don't think anything would make it out of the Damascus city limits let alone as far as the Golan Heights.

At least now Israel can point to this statement to further their argument that there is no way in hell that Israel would ever voluntarily give back the Golan to Syria.

Zero the Jihadist has done nothing but talk, maybe because Assad makes him wet his pants in fear.
