Israel directly got involved with immediate long time nemesis’s civil war, by attacking Syrian Military Scientific Development Centre near Damascus. It is the West’s contribution to weaken the Syrian military and expedite the toppling of Syrian President Hafez Al Assad and his government.
The convenient really lame excuse is ‘Prevention of Terrorism’. The truth is that the Syrian rebels ‘Free Syrian Army’ have not managed to disarm the Syrian military even though after two years of intense fighting. This facility is crucial to ensure that the Syrian military And the Zionists promised more attacks.

Israel may strike at Syria again if it detects the movement of weaponry intended for Hezbollah, sources have told the media. The US has voiced support for any measures that prevent weapons from falling into the hands of the region’s extremists.
Tensions have risen in the area after Wednesday’s Israeli strike on a military research center in Syrian territory. The attack provoked the ire of both Syria and Iran, who condemned the strike as an affront to Syrian sovereignty and promised “serious consequences.”
Ephraim Kam, deputy director of Israel’s Institute of National Security Studies, told the Telegraph that threats of retaliation from Iran and Syria were greatly outweighed by the possibility of weapons falling into Hezbollah’s hands.
“If tomorrow the IDF [Israeli Defense Force] sees the movement of this weaponry, it will and should strike again,” he told the Telegraph. “This week’s attack was a kind of warning – we are ready and prepared to do this.”
Israel moved a third missile battery of its Iron Dome defense system to its northern borders on Friday, joining two others that had been deployed from the south on Monday.
The IDF confirmed the move, but said that the deployment was “routine” and not connected with Wednesday’s strikes. The IDF has refused to comment on whether it ordered the aerial attack in Syria earlier this week.
However, the strike has become a hot topic in the Israeli media, with publications discussing the possible ramifications of the attack.
“Complete restraint over the long term to Israel’s actions could be considered weakness by Hezbollah, so we should expect some form of response, even if not immediately and not necessarily a broad rocket and missile attack on Israel,” defense commentator Amos Harel wrote in Israeli daily Haaretz.
Publication Yediot Aharonot reported that the Israeli army’s northern command had been placed on high alert, although the military did not confirm this to AFP.
Conflicting reports surfaced in the days following the strike regarding the events that led to the attack.
Various reports have indicated that the Israeli military warned Washington prior to the attack. Citing US officials, Time magazine reported on Friday that “multiple targets” had been struck by the Israeli aerial assault, and that Israel received a “green light” to execute such strikes in the future.
Time report also wrote that the air strike knocked out a biological weapons center “out of concern that it might fall into the hands of Islamist extremists fighting to topple the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad.”
The US has yet to confirm any details concerning the strike, but has stressed that it supports any measures that prevent weapons from finding their way into terrorist arsenals.
“The United States supports whatever steps are taken to make sure these weapons don’t fall into the hands of terrorists,” Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said on Friday, emphasizing that he would not discuss “communications that we have on a regular basis with Israel or the specifics of that operation.”
Washington’s main aim was to prevent extremist groups in the region from arming themselves with “chemical biological weapons,” Panetta concluded.
Syian President Hafez Al Assad have been continuing his father’s legacy of strongly opposing the criminally instituted illegal Zionist State of Israel.
It is clear that the West, particularly Washington D.C. and London wanted Syrian President Hafez Al Assad to be toppled since the civil war which started with the ‘Syrian Spring’, in wake of series of ‘Arab Spring’ around the region.
The Syrian rebels have been on their intense armed struggle around the north west and west corridors of Syria since two years ago. The continued fighting in the scale where Syrian military are forced to retaliate, particularly around Aleppo, is a demonstration that these rebels are being re-armed by foreign assistance. Only the West especially Syrian nemesis Israel wanted the Al Assad regime be ousted.
US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s on supporting Israel’s lame excuse of ‘Prevention of Terrorism’ for the attack which the Zionists claimed that Syria is continuing to arm Hezbollah in Lebanon is really pathetic. The rebels that mounted an armed insurgency in Syria and refusal for peace negotiations are the dangerous terrorists. In the morbid attempt to clemour for power, the got Syrians civilians to be target of their rebellion.
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan reiterated Israeli’s typical international crime action as ‘State Terrorism’.
In the effort of US President Barack S. Obama in bringing about peace in the region and having a ‘two-state-solution’ for the Palestinian, an attack by Israel into Sria would just take a few step backwards in the process.
The fact still remains; State of Israel was the highest crime ever impose on humanity in modern times as the Zionist terrorists practiced multiple mass murder and drove Palestinians from the homes since 1947-48. In 1967, the criminally incurred into the United Nation’s sanctioned West Bank border of Palestinian and subjected Palestinians under occupation.
The Palestinians have been treated very cruelly. More and more homes were built illegally on lands belonging to the Palestinians all over the West Bank.
All that are being retaliated with attacks against Israel, which include bombings. In reciprocity, the Zionist Israeli Forces subjected the Palestinians in Gaza and Lebanon and Arabs in Lebanon into very cruel military action. One of the most tragic is the massacre of non combatant women, children and old folks at Sabra and Shatila refugee camps, outside of Beirut 17-19 September 1982.
The latest is the November 2012 Zionist Israeli brutal attacks against civilian population of Gaza.
Coming back to Panetta, he has been an active advocate of illegal wars and military attacks which is criminal in nature. When he was the Director of CIA, he was responsible of UAV attacks against Pakistan civilian population.
All these organized brutal attacks by military forces against Muslim civilians, be it around West Asia or Central Asia would actually escalate terrorism against United States establishments around the world. Two days ago the US Embassy in Ankara, Turkey was attacked by a suicide bomber.
