Skip to comments.Syrian Official: If Damascus is Attacked, Tel Aviv Will Burn
Posted on 08/27/2013 7:47:20 PM PDT by Lera
A senior official in the Syrian army warned the United States and its partners on Tuesday that waging a full-scale war on Syria would be reciprocated with an immediate attack on Tel Aviv.
"If Damascus comes under attack, Tel Aviv will be targeted too and a full-scale war against Syria will actually issue a license for attacking Israel," the Syrian army source told the Iranian Fars news agency.
"Rest assured that if Syria is attacked, Israel will also be set on fire and such an attack will, in turn, engage Syria's neighbors," he added.
The source also warned the U.S. and other Western states that if Syria grows weak, certain irresponsible groups will be formed which will endanger Israel's security.
"Therefore, weakening the central government in Damascus will actually start growing attacks on Israel and will create insecurity for that regime," he claimed.
"Thus, a U.S. attack on Syria will herald frequent strikes and attacks on Israel, not just by Damascus and its allies in retaliation, but by extremist groups who will find a ground for staging their aspirations," he concluded.
The comments come amid growing speculations that U.S. President Barack Obama and other Western countries are planning to respond in some form to a deadly chemical attack in Syria last week, which killed hundreds.

Limited attack is like pouring gas on a fire.
All it will do is unite the crazies against Israel and put her into a position were she has no choice but to turn Syria into a sea of glass.
My reply. If Tel Aviv is hit, every muslim capital in the world will be destroyed instantly. Forever! Your turn!
And the Jew-hating preezy will laugh with ghoulish glee.
BO’s arrogance and fake bravado are beginning to bite him in the A%%. He’s in so over his head and all the idiots he consults with it’s just horrible. A community organizer has no business in this position.
Better yet, attack Tel Aviv, Mecca and Medina get nuked.
Sad that he cares more about protecting al qaeda

“Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city and will become a heap of ruins.”
assad must not understand that an attack on Israel would delight the wretched west these days in these times. He needs this ‘splained to him.
The US and Britain put assad in power with Israel’s aquiescence because they thought he would be much easier to control than his brother who ‘died’ in an ‘unfortunate’ car crash.
obama’s plan coming together.

And all because he is covering up for Benghazi and the IRS.
Not very original... Saddam said the same thing.
Bashar is the ideological brother of Saddam Hussein. What does he imagine Iran partnered with NATO and AQ will do to him?
That I agree with. Syria has some pretty serious toys to bring to the party.
But I can't shake that this is a convoluted call for help Syrian style.
It's obvious to anyone paying attention (this includes the spineless bastards that occupy DC and scurry off on recess at break neck speeds) that this administration is solidly muslim brotherhood. Its like a death pang, a last effort. If Syria falls, Israel will be dealing with the greater of two evils; only now they have all sorts of neat party poppers at their disposal.
I hate to say this, but Israel's smart choice is to move against this administration (notice, not America, this administration); who would they ally themselves with though?
Well, it was saddam who ended up as bashar’s greatest influence so...
“Butch” Obama is trying to impress Muslims unimpressed with the Brotherhood.
Two points: Russia really didn’t do much of anything when Bush’s 1 and 2 bitch-slapped their other client.
‘Mother of all battles.’ Been there done that.
The real problem here? Like Carter, Barry could screw up a two car funeral. This is an Obama FUBAR just waiting to hatch.
Oh, well, better wait for Iran to nuke the Vatican and London then. [Little irony and sarcasm there. It’s about Iran.]
