Skip to comments.Syria: If United States Attacks, We'll Attack Israel
Posted on 08/26/2013 3:24:28 PM PDT by Former Fetus
As talk and rumors of an impending Western attack against Syria mount, a top Syrian official said Monday that if attacked, his country would react - against Israel.
Speaking to an Arabic-language radio station operated by the United States, Syria's Deputy Information Minister Halaf Al-Maftah said that Israel would face not only Syria in the event that the US, Britain and France attempted to unseat Bashar al-Assad. A coalition consisting of Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria would respond to any attack against Assad with a response against Israel. In addition, terrorist groups in Syria and Lebanon would attack Israel with full force.
Al-Maftah added that Syria has "strategic weapons" that it would use in its attack on Israel. He did not specify what those weapons were.
"Syria is ready to deal with all scenarios," said Al-Maftah. "We consider these declarations of a possible attack as a form of psychological warfare and pressure on Syria. We are not worried about them. We hope that those threatening us will listen closely to what we are saying. We believe that the only solution for the Syrian issue is a political one," he added.
In recent days, the U.S. has sent warships off Syria's coast, with the assumption being that they were waiting for word from the White House to attack Syria and remove Assad from power. Over the weekend, the U.S. Navy expanded its presence in the Mediterranean Sea with a fourth cruise-missile-armed warship.
like bath house cares about Israel.
There is no Constitutional argument FOR an attack on Syria.
I suggest we “loan” Israel numerous Patriot batteries and other anti-missile assets.
It may very well be his desired end-game for all this.
Is Syria ready for a war on Israel? the last few times they got their tail kicked by the Jews. This time they may roll all the way into Damascus. Syria hopes such a war will unify his shattered land—not going to happen.
Obozo sez, “BONUS!”
So what comes after we bomb Syria and they bomb Israel? Has anyone thought about this, or is this the entire point.
He’s been backing the wrong side like he said he would. If this man isn’t the 3rd antichrist I don’t know who is.
And the argument for the attack on Libya was...?
I think BenLurkin is right and that the objective of Zero's ME policies is to provoke an attack on Israel. He hasn't read Isaiah either!
All the better says Obastard.
The absolute last thing you want to do when attacked is to lash out at a third party and waste what resources you have.
Russia is not going to stand idly by and watch its ally in Syria get crushed.
Well, we won’t. BO said he’d always side with Muslims and that is the only thing we can belive about anything he says. His a cations always verify this oath of his
This is more about the 12th Madhi.
If Syria is attacked and retaliates against Israel, then Israel will have cover to strike Iran for its sponsorship of Syria.
Sunnis or Alawites?
Asfar as mac daddy is concerned there are threes es ahead: things already agreed upon if he goes ahead:
1 - Who gets the blame if anything goes wrong.
2- A grand photo photo op and him patting himself on the back if things go good followed by days of lies of how he knew it was the correct thing to do.
3 - He will be on vacation when it starts.
Reminds me of rabid dogs - they'll bite anything within reach, including themselves.
If they don't like shias, they'll attack Copts. Don't like Sunnis? Death to the Christians! Mad at the Egyptian gov't? Burn some churches, that'll help. And of course Jews are fair game for any arab.
This sort of thing could seep over to the American continent to the point acts of terrorism in country could validate martial law and suspend elections ...
.... 8 + years of Precedent Erkel Mugabe ?
Nah....he’d never do thaaaaat !
if i was israel, i’d say if syria attacks us, we’re going after iran.
i can keep golfing AND israel gets attacked...sweet! /obama
Syria would be much better off fighting the USA...Israel is so backward they still believe in killing and wiping out their enemies instead of trying to placate them.....
“Russia is not going to stand idly by and watch its ally in Syria get crushed.”
I’m thinking they’ll test some of their new anti-ship missiles against the US destroyers that fire on Syria.
73% of Kenyan slimes identify themselves as Sunni.
In Indonesia the majority of slimes are Sunni.
Barry's background indicates he's a Sunni slime.
If he wanted to be taken seriously, why didn’t he threaten to attack Kenya?
Barack will side with the Sunnis. He's bought and paid for by the Saudis. The Syrian “rebels’ are Sunni.
Exactly! That’s why he’s siding with the Sunni rebels against the Alawite Assad. Same in Egypt, siding with the Muslim Brotherhood...
Obama caused the problems in Syria with his reckless foreign policy.
Can’t Syria just bomb Obama’s retirement home in Hawaii?
It’s an empty threat. No Arabs will dare to take on the IDF. Especially with the Syrians in a middle of a brutal civil war and with the Egyptian Army being deployed to crush the Muslim Brotherhood.
What makes you think the Russians won’t launch against our ships?
Psalm 83 War to be followed by the Ezekiel 38-39 War.
Clearly true Mastergunner01. Believe Percy Sutton, attorney for Malcolm X, Farrakhan, Muslim Brotherhood, and a President of the Manhattan Borough, when he proudly told how he helped Wahhabi Lawyer, counsel for Alwaleed bin-Talal, founder of Black Panthers, Don Warden/Khalid al-Mansour about Obama’s sponsor-patron. Warden/al-Mansour was an old friend of Percy, and of Vernon Jarrett, and of Frank Marshall Davis, get Barack into Harvard.
At Barack’s side from at least 2007, employer of Lieutenant Charles Quarles, who “cauterized”, according to Condoleezza Rice, Obama’s passport records, is Wahhabi Convert, while he was CIA Chief of Station in in Riyadh, John Brennan, now Director of the CIA. Barack’s Sec. of State, Hillary, employed Wahhabi Muslim Brotherhood employee, Huma Abedin, whose mother and brother are employed by MB, and her father, now deceased, was close to the founder. Barack's half brother and grandmother are organizers for the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood, Sunni, permeate our government, both parties, and not just the CIA’s directorship. There are many hundreds of senior Muslim Brotherhood operatives in DHS, State Department, Military, DIA. Find Maj. Stephen Coughlin’s briefs, John Guandolo who wrote the manual for the FBI on Islamic Terrorism, and-or Clare Lopez’, CIA operations for 20 years, and or Frank Gaffney’s, frank former Ass. Sec of Defense for Intelligence. They present detailed and well-organized briefs which, which Coughlin and Guandolo used to deliver as their missions in military intelligence and the FBI respectively, before their analysis became unwelcome.
We have our American Conservative Union, with Grover Norquist, married to a Muslim, sponsoring Suhail Khan, whose father founded the Islamic Society for North America, “Jihad is our goal...”. Whether it for a teat to revenue from our petroleum imports or religious servitude, Obama is the product of a very large Muslim Brotherhood presence in our government. His connection began at least, by Khalid al-Mansour’s admission on one of his Youtube sermons, when Obama was in his late teens/early twenties at Occidental, where al-Mansour claims to have first met him.
Lord knows what deals have been made amongst those ( and I wonder about barry too on this) that hate Israel. Will they all attack Israel at once?
Exactly! And I’m coming to the conclusion that Isaiah 17 fits perfectly as the “grand finale” for the Psalm 83 War!
There's no way this administration can wiggle its way out of this one... not since John F'n Kerry declared that Assad HAS used chemical weapons.
I forgot to add that Israel just discovered another gas/oil field. After the Psalm 83 War, Israel will be at peace and prosperous, and Russia will have a million reasons to “take great plunder” (Eze 38:13).
