BEIRUT, LEBANON (10:00 A.M.) – Israel’s Minister of Defense Naftali Bennett told top security officials this week that his country’s forces will make Iran give up its plans to springboard future attacks from Syria, Israel National News reported on Saturday.

Citing a report from Israel Hayom on Friday morning, Israel National News reported that  Bennett said Israel had a “window of opportunity” to take advantage of Iran’s ongoing internal turmoil – notably Tehran’s economic woes and ongoing protests inside the Islamic Republic – to push Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from Syria.

According to the report, Bennett argued that Israel must apply pressure on Iran militarily to force them out Syria.

Bennett reportedly thinks it is a good time for Israel to apply this pressure because the Iranian government’s current attention is directed towards the protesters inside the Islamic Republic.

Israel should increase its attacks on Iranian targets in Syria even at the risk of prompting an Iranian response, argued Bennett, adding that a sustained campaign against Iran would convince Tehran that the continued presence of its forces in Syria will not be beneficial to the regime.

Bennett’s comments came nine days after the Israeli forces launched a heavy attack on southern and western Damascus.

Iran needs to attack Israelis in the middle east to get them out. I’m sure the Egyptians would like their slaves back :]

Egypt and Israel are a close team, in case you wouldn’t know. Mossad is no stranger to the fall of the Muslim-Brotherhood in Egypt, and MB is banned as a terrorist organisation in Syria, Russia/CSTO and in Gulf monarchies but Qatar. Turkish AKP = MB, in case you wouldn’t know.
BTW, slavery is a crime against humanity. You’ve just shown your true face!
The world needs to attack Iran to thwart the spread of Islamofascism and free Iranians from the mullahs dictatorship.

Oh look, an Israeli PM shaking hands with a wounded Salafist, the whole show being displayed on Occupied Syrian lands. Ahrar Al Sham ? Harakat Nourideen Al Zinki ? Absolutely love it.

Guess what? I once shook the hand of a Jean-Marie LePen close aide without knowing who he was! Does it associates me with the National Front? No, Hëll No! Was it up to me, this party would be banned for long and JMLP would had served jail time! With Islamofascists of your kind, showing two people meeting is enough for your propaganda to say they’re associated. Providing medical assistance to wounded enemies? Israel does it in virtue of its commitment to the Red Cross protocol… Your kind? You assassinate POWs and even non-violent political dissident, we’ve seen it in 1988… Read more »

Are you saying that the Zionists do not know that they are treating terrorists? Does the Red Cross protocol say that the prime minister has to meet enemy combatants (that are treated in the hospital) and shake their hand? Does the protocol say that they (the zionists) have to give weapons to “their enemy”? “even non-violent political dissident” How do you classify Palestinian children killed by the Zionist regime? “1988 when Khomeini hanged 33,000”-“Amnesty International recorded the names of over 4,482 disappeared prisoners during this time” “The majority of those killed were supporters of the People’s Mujahedin of Iran” “Arafat’s… Read more »

Thanks a lot, but don’t hold back if you feel like going through him like butter either, I might not be around in time to see his latest nonsense :p Sadly, sometimes my posts never seem to reach a given thread, that’s often a problem to finish debates past a certain point 🙁

Naftali is a püssy… IDF should cut the head of the snake directly into Iran!
It’d be easy to put the regime’s economy totally on its knees and Iran even shown the way by striking Aramco : just demolish Iran’s refineries, oil terminals, gas/oil platforms and processing plants = game over.

1 – The pûssy is the one preaching military action to actual fighters thousands of miles away from the safety of his armchair he never moves from. Even the criminal IDF could inspire me some sort of a cold-hearted respect, considering they don’t hold back at the idea of spilling a bit of their own blood every once in a while. In your case, it’s zero. 2 – Demolishing or attempting to demolish Iran’s petrochemical industry by any GCC state is the greatest idea ever for them to get their own torn up in a matter of hours. I guess… Read more »
