Israel drawn into Syria fighting for first time
AP ^

Posted on 11/11/2012 8:08:32 AM PST by Perdogg

Israel was drawn into the Syrian civil war for the first time on Sunday, firing warning shots into the neighboring country after a stray mortar shell from across the border hit an Israeli military post.

The Israeli military said the mortar fire caused no injuries or damage at the post in the Golan Heights, which Israel captured from Syria in the 1967 Mideast war and then annexed. But in recent weeks, incidents of errant fire from Syria to the north have multiplied, leading Israel to warn that it holds Syria responsible for fire on Israeli-held territory.

Maybe Syria is trying to draw Israel in so the jihadists will then see them as the “real” enemy giving the Syrian government some relief.

The only thing "accidental" about it was that it didn't do any damage.

A very real possibility. That's what Saddam tried to do during the first Gulf War when he fired the Scuds into Israel, he wanted to draw the entire Arab world onto his side.

Too bad Israel doesn’t flatten the whole mess.

We shouldn’t build any more nuclear bombs until we use the old ones...

...and I have a list of targets in my hand.

So, this means the USA is at proxy war with Israel because the POtuS is arming Syrian rebels (that should make God pretty angry at the USA),

and maybe this is why the Benghazi coverup is so important to the arab spring instigating Obama administration

And Russia. Syria's allies. Obama thinks he has a friend in Putin. That alone should send alarm bells through the Pentagon, but they are too busy sipping their Starbucks latte's. They wont even see it coming.

“And so it begins...”

Very possibly:

“...It goes without saying that the Middle East region is being systematically and consciously devoured by an act of extremism funded and promoted by Washington and some Arab regimes...”

The northern edge of the Golan is prety much all Israeli military, there’s a “DMZ” there also. It’s that “aiming south” that pretty much rules out an “accident”. But Akmed was no doubt in training and can’t read his compass yet-——because it’s written in either Russian or Hebrew.

It would not surprise me if this was orchestrated by the present fraudsters in the White House. Assad being backed by Russia makes it difficult for Hussein to remove him and install the muslim brotherhood. So instead they come up with a scheme to draw Israel in to help remove Assad. Although Israel does not like Assad, the last thing they want is to be surrounded by the muslim brotherhood on all sides. Look for Hussein Obama to step up attacks and start bombing Israel from Syria to try and draw them in. I’m sure Bibi is wise enough not to fall into Hussein’s trap.

The end goal seems to be that Hussein wants to surround Israel with his terrorist buddies and use that as cover to continuously bomb Israel until they give in to his demands of returning to the 67 borders.

As Premier Obama-Ostalin begins his full reign of terror over what is left of the American republic, Israel will be further and further alone on this planet. America’s judgment has begun. God has started to withdraw his protection and grace. America has polluted its lifestyle, our children’s lives. Anything goes and everything is good and legal. Sex, booze, drugs, porn on demand, abortions by the millions. God punishes nations in time. He will punish unbelievers at the Great White Throne Judgment. But he punishes nations in time. He has done it over and over again. Now, it is America’s turn.

No!

Wilson called for war on Germany, which the U.S. Congress declared on 6 April 1917.

That was when the Republic DIED.

November 6, 2012 is when it was buried!

I recall a top of the hour CBS radio broadcast at the time. They jumped the gun and said that Israeli fighter jets were retaliating by bombing targets in Iraq. It turned out to be completely wrong.

Unless Assad has a death wish for himself and his nation, he won’t start trouble with Israel. His worn-out military can’t put down an internal rebellion; it wouldn’t last 12 hours against Israel. But the Syrian rebels are another story. If Israel is provoked into clobbering Assad’s military, all the better for the rebels.

Right after 0’s reelection, the middle east heats up and Israel prepares to defend itself.
Without the help of the USA.
Do the middle easterners know that 0 will not lift a finger to help Israel?
Sure looks that way.

In a little talked-about war in Congo-Brazzaville, the same thing began happening to a military camp in the across-the-river country of Congo-Kinshasa. Everyone knew it was the attempt of one side to draw the neighbor into the conflict, but there was debate about which side was doing it. The question was tacitly answered when the government warned their neighbor not to intervene. Why wouldn’t it be the “bros?” They win the publicity war either way—especially since the media is complicit.

Syrian rebs trying to provoke Israel into doing their job (wiping out Assad’s military) for them?

Silly man. Don't you know Syria has the largest supply of biological weapons on Earth? They recently tested the weapons systems launching the rockets for two reasons
1. To scare the bejeebees out of everyone letting them know they're testing the rockets for eventual launch
2. To test it for themselves to see if they actually work

Really? Does your mom know you’re on her laptop. And who told you that Syria has the largest supply of bio weapons on Earth? Did you read that in World Nut Daily or some such place. Ad hominem attacks aren’t approved of here. Let’s see how long your post lasts.
