Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday warned Syrian President Bashar Assad was no longer immune from retaliation, while declaring the Iran nuclear deal is over after Washington ditched the accord.
He is no longer immune, his regime is no longer immune. If he fires at us, as weve just demonstrated, we will destroy his forces."
Syria has to understand that Israel will not tolerate the Iranian military entrenchment in Syria against Israel, Netanyahu added.
The consequences are not merely to the Iranian forces there but to the Assad regime as well, he said, adding: I think its something that he should consider very seriously.
Netanyahu is on a three-day European tour visiting Berlin and Paris earlier this week marked by strategic differences on Iran, as its leaders attempt to rescue the nuclear deal after US withdrawal in May.
He met Wednesday with British Prime Minister Theresa May, who reiterated Londons firm commitment to the accord, according to Downing Street.
But the Israeli leader said Thursday the weight of the American economy was already dooming this very bad agreement.
Its a done deal in the other meaning of the word, he added, noting companies were already pulling out of Iran under threat of damaging US sanctions.
You have to choose whether to do business with Iran, or forego doing business with the United States
thats a no-brainer and everybodys choosing it effectively as we speak."

Netanyahu is a better than not bad spokesman for the Trump Administration.
good for Bibi!
(now then, Bibi, please please stop all the stalling and take out the 150,000 Iranian/Hezballah rocket bombs pointed at your little country...no responsible government would permit such a deadly accumulation of dangerous weaponry, in the hands of insane bloodthirsty Moslem murder gangs who are sworn to destroying you. thank you)
It’s none of Israel’s business who a sovereign nation chooses as its allies.

So it was none of our business when Imperial Japan allied itself with Nazi Germany?
“So it was none of our business when Imperial Japan allied itself with Nazi Germany?”
Yea, I guess by that rationale we should have only fought Japan...and ceded Europe to Hitler. LOL.
Just take out the Iranians in Syria. I.D. them for their mamas.
Go f yourself you Putin boot licker
I can just imagine a Hillary administration response to this tough talk coming out of Israel. The world is a better and safer place with President Trump at the helm.
Iran is putting it’s soldiers in Syrian Army uniforms, obviously with the approval of the host nation. This is CLEARLY Israel’s business, every bit as much as Soviet missiles in Cuba was our business.

Assad does, that's why he's planning a trip out of the country.
Actually, Russian missiles in Cuba were not our business.
Brilliant analysis from you as usual.
Israel is going to light the ME up and it is their damn business to protect their people from evil scum like Assad, Iran, Turkey, & Russia - wherever they roam.
Damascus & Syria is the problem that just won’t go away - until it does.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
Reasonable. I'm sure Russia has already delivered this message
In this case you have spoken like a true idiot.
“Actually, Russian missiles in Cuba were not our business”
Similarly, it IS Israel’s business when Iran places large numbers of troops in the country right next door to it, clothed in the uniforms of that next-door country - and Iran has NEVER stopped its state of war with Israel. What is Israel supposed to do, wait for a salvo of nuke-armed missiles built by Iran are already on their way before doing something about them?
This is real life, not some theoretical classroom exercise in which you score points for being a goody two-shoes according to the idiotic rantings of some Communist professor. The only rule in the real world is SURVIVE...because all else is meaningless unless you do - all of your ideals, all of the good that you or your nation could have done in the imagined future...all of it goes up in a mushroom cloud if you’re stupid and don’t care what your declared enemies do to prepare to destroy you.
“Go f yourself you Putin boot licker”
I only come here for the well-reasoned debate
