JERUSALEM—Israel’s defence minister on Tuesday signalled that his military is prepared to strike shipments of advanced Russian weapons to Syria, in a rare implied threat to Moscow.

Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon issued his warning shortly after a top Russian official said his government reserves the right to provide Syria with state-of-the-art S-300 air defence missiles.

All this talking, political posturing and saber rattling is getting us no where.

Israel and Russia have a number of common interests. They would both do better by finding a course of action that does not involve shooting at each other.

Israel and Russia are in the warm ups for their slated death match in the end times.

One thing about it.... most of the time Israel’s threats are not just empty threats.

When you’re a nation, you have to watch what your leaders say in public.

This puts Israel on record. If anything happens to those missiles even if Israel isn’t involved, Israel will be the first one people think of.

Better to keep your mouth shut, take out the missiles if you like, then allow Russia a face saving story line like, we’re not sure what happened. We’ll have to look into it.

Now here’s a direct confrontation, that Russia will have to respond to if anything happens, or it will have egg all over it’s face.

Dumb move by the Israeli here.

most of the time Israel’s threats are not just empty threats.

And they usually accomplish what they set out to do.

I agree. The threats, implied or otherwise, should be backchanneled. Public protestations are one thing, but threats are something completely different. The Israelis do have a tendency to follow through on their threats, so this is going to be an interesting development.
