Israel ordered a special call-up of reserve troops Wednesday as nervous citizens lined up at gas-mask distribution centers, preparing for possible hostilities with Syria.

With the U.S. threatening to attack Syria over its alleged use of chemical weapons, Israel fears that Syria may respond by attacking Israel, a close American ally.

This is what the Obama attack on Syria is all about, putting the screws to Bibi Nethanyahu and Israel.

Israel has active war machines on its Northern, Eastern, Southern and Western borders, with the Russian fleet just off shore.

Things are NOT good in Israel right now.Soon every man woman and child may be carrying a rifle or other military ordnance.

I respectfully disagree. In Israel's case, they have no choice.

The only reason O getting involved in Syria is distracting attention of the US population from the local issues. Regarding your last sentence, Israelis carrying weapons anyway. This is not the first, and unfortunately, not the last time that have to be done.

Whatever happens, Israel will defend its citizens and survive. Dictators come and jihadists go, but the state of Israel is secure.

What are the odds that Israel will uses any attack on Syria as cover to destroy Iran's Atomic Bomb Facilities? Kind of like a magician who gets you to focus on his right hand while his left hand is placing the rabbit in the hat.

I agree with you in the sense that it is more demonstrative than anything else.

In a small nation such as Israel calling up the
reserves puts a severe strain on the society as a
whole. It is not done for minor situations, and
because of the effect on the state’s economy, is
not done for very long.

I pray for Israel and our nation.

I stand emphatically corrected.

Let us all take comfort in the sense of security in which Israel has shown itself capable of defending itself.

The only reason O getting involved in Syria is distracting attention of the US population from the local issues.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Obama has Muslim Brotherhood people on his White House staff:Arif Alikhan -Homeland Security; Mohammed Elibiay-Homeland Security;Rashad Hussain-Special Envoy to the (OIC); Imam Mohamed Magid-Obama’s Sharia Czar; Eboo Patel-Advisory Council on Faith-based neighborhood; Salam al-Marayati-Muslim Public Affairs Council

Obama has slowly been moving his chess peices since 2008 to have Israel surrounded by well suplied armed forces, in Jordan the “police force “ was trained by the US Army.Hamas in Gaza has been supplied with ordfnance from Libya’s arsena;\ls, including shoulder launcehed missiles which can down an aircraft flying up to 20, 000 feet.In Egypt, armed fighters have been organized by the Muslim Brotherhood along Israels Southern Border.To the north we have Hezbollah in Lebanon and the Syrians, as well as many
mujahadeen , including Al Qaeda, ready to turn on Israel.
The mediterranean is very much now and equal opportunity cruise area between the Russian fleet and the US Navy fleet.No help with come for Israel from that quarter.

This has not just merely come by chance. Obama has been working for this array for many years.Israel is in danger of being invaded from all 4 directions of the compass.

These are very trying times for Israel and her people.And its very much a purposeful policy on the part of the fascist Obama regime.

I would agree with you but in reality 0 miscalculated situation in Egypt. Regarding Syria.. if you noticed, no country except US and UK want any military action. Even at this moment nothing is moving forward.0 is above his head and scared to take responsibility for the outcome of this mess. IRS, Libya, obamacare problems are children’s game compare to problems that he will face if regional war breaks out. Just imagine the chain reaction if Iran will get involved. I don’t want even to think about nukes.. Arabian peninsula.. oil fields on fire..

Thats because the political class of both nations, no matter what brand, is deeply invested in Saudi Oil.So is the Roman Catholic Church.The Royal family of the UK is so deep into Saudi pockets that they have to eat halal.

True. Currently this is local conflict within Syria that fairly localized. Let them kill each other but the moment West gets involved, muslims will have common enemy and it will spread around ME and may endanger entire region and indeed will affect oil supplies. In the case of Syria no one have a clear plan what to do next.
