Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem on September 10, 2017

The comment comes in the wake of an overnight attack against Syrian military facilities and the Israeli prime minister’s visit to Moscow on Wednesday, where he discussed Middle East issues with Russian President Putin.

On Thursday, Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel did not have any problems with Syrian President Bashar al Assad and would not intervene in the country if the existing agreements are upheld, according to Haaretz.

“I have set a clear policy that we do not intervene and we have not intervened. This has not changed. What has troubled us is ISIS* [Daesh] and Hezbollah and this has not changed. The heart of the matter is preserving our freedom of action against anyone who acts against us. Second, the removal of the Iranians from Syrian territory,” he said to reporters.

Hours before the remarks were made, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reported that they had fired missiles into Syria’s southwestern Quneitra province in “response to an intrusion by a Syrian UAV that was intercepted earlier on Wednesday.”

The confrontation came amid Netanyahu’s visit to Moscow. A high-ranking Israeli official has quoted Benjamin Netanyahu as saying, during Wednesday’s talks in Moscow with Russian President Vladimir Putin, that Israel “won’t take action against the Assad regime,” according to Reuters.

At the same time, Netanyahu reportedly underlined that Moscow should encourage Iranian forces allegedly in Syria to leave the war-torn country.

On Tuesday, when asked whether the two countries would be able to establish “some kind of relationship,” Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman stated, “I reckon we are a long way from that, but we are not ruling out anything.”

On May 10, the Israeli Air Force launched missile strikes on dozens of suspected Iranian targets in the country after a rocket attack on IDF positions in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights allegedly staged by pro-Iranian forces.
Damascus condemned the attacks and called them a violation of its airspace and sovereignty, with Iran also pledging to respond to “Israeli aggression.”
Tel Aviv, in turn, accuses Tehran of building up a military presence in Syria as a springboard to attack Israel. Syria and Iran have denied the claim, stating that Iran’s presence is limited to military advisers assisting in the fight against Islamist terrorists.
The Golan Heights were captured and then occupied by Israel following the 1967 Six-Day War, in a move that was recognized neither by the international community nor the UN Security Council.
Israel and Syria still remain officially at war as a result of this conflict and a lack of formal bilateral diplomatic relations.

Actually, the roaches shot twice at Israeli border guards from SW Syria, once they received artillery barrage in seconds, the other, they were droned soon. When on 2 attempts, the team ends totally annihilated in minutes, you chill out a bit. ISIS/Sinai-Province shot rockets from Sinai (they had these from Hamas) and got annihilated too. IDF greatly helped Egypt to take out ISIS/Sinai, drones without markings often doing a serious detour to avoid being seen coming from Israel. It’s an open secret, c’mon. Some Israeli-Arabs joined and ended killed. It’s also an open secret that ISIS/Sinai-Province hides in Hamastan… And… Read more »

According to the fact Khomeini came to power trough a coup, is Iranian regime a legitimate entity? Where is the Shah? Bashar’s daddy came to power through a coup too. We have a case of disguised monarchy, is it legitimate? The Hashemites’ bought Arab-Palestine when the Rothschilds’ bought Jewish-Palestine. So Jordan is illegitimate? Didn’t Islam spread by the sword? Does God needs to threaten and bully people to spread, or are these Iblis’ methods? Quran says you can’t go to heaven if you don’t know Jesus’ teaching but you can’t know it through Quran. Do you know what are Jesus’… Read more »

According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., reports from US, Israeli and Saudi electronic spying systems indicate that the moment Assad rejected the Qatari pipeline, military and intelligence planners quickly arrived at the consensus that fomenting a Sunni uprising in Syria to overthrow the uncooperative Bashar Assad was a feasible path to achieving the shared objective of completing the Qatar/Turkey gas line… It’s a fücking pipeline war! Qatar’s North-Dome is the biggest gas field on Earth. Note that about a quarter of the field is in Iran EEZ… By helping making the transit unfeasible trough both Syria and Iraq, Iran ends… Read more »

So imagine the one who did the Hudaybiyah treaty proposing a 10 years truce to the Jewish tribe and attacked them after 2 years…
Wasn’t he the “razul” of Islam?
Quran 3.54 says “Allah is the greatest of deceivers”

Non-yids translation from Arabic sounds differently.
“The above translation does not exist. It is only made up by crazy deluded missionaries in order to lead people astray. Arabic word(s) makr, Makara can be used negatively and for good. So when the Jews planned to get Jesus arrested and crucified, that was evil, whereas when Allah thwarted their evil plan by saving Jesus, this was good. So, the claim by missionaries that Allah is a deceiver for helping one of the Prophet’s from slaughter at the hands of evil, wicked people, these claims have no bearing on the passage historically”

It is same story with nickname translation of Russian tsar Ivan the Great. Russian nick Грозный is now translated as the Terrible. The reason is that he was beating Orders on the West and khans on East for all his live and expanded borders a lot for Russia. But translation is wrong as in Russia he was always meant The great/formidable/powerful not terrible. The obvious prove (for outsiders) is that same name (exactly Грозный) was given to the capital of Chechnya. If this word meant just ‘terrible’, Chechens would not keep it for any single day after their break out… Read more »

Except the Jews didn’t used to crucify any one. This was a Roman practise, Jesus was sentenced to death by Pontius Pilate, the Roman prefect, for sedition against the Roman Empire. Allah was for nothing in the following events : Jesus learnt Yoga in India where he spent 6 years then followed by 10 years in Tibet. He simply simulated death by putting himself in trance. He was seen as the reincarnation of Lord Krishna, note that Krishna sounds near to Christ, Krishna was also born from a virgin woman and Buddha also walked on water. Quran even explain why… Read more »

The bombing of the king David hotel, the attack and murder of US naval crew on the USS liberty in 1967, terrorist attacks of 9/11 in New York and the Pentagon to name but a few, all carried out by Israel who in turn tried to blame Arab nations and individuals. The mossad motto ” by deception thou shalt do war ” wasn’t named by mistake but by design. Give it another few years and they will have revised the history books to say that the Arabs were responsible for the fiction known as the holohoax. With Israels track record… Read more »

So is it for the principles of taqiyya and kitman!
Seems the Jews learnt from Arabs.
So when Arabs accuse the Jews, it’s Arabs who did it…
Oh, BTW, who took the decision for USS Liberty is well known : it came from Lyndon B. Johnson, he wanted an excuse to invade Egypt.
And you know what?
Everybody practises deception!
A proof?
There are religions! All are total deceptions and there are still morons believing despite all are body of lies!

My very simple question is: “What is the agreement between Israel and ISIS, so neither of them is attacking the other side?”. ISIS is attacking everyone else but Israel. How that comes?!?

An excellent question USR !
I suspect that Israel, who seem to be the only ones who have benefited from the creation of ISIS across the middle east, are along with the US and saudis , instrumental in the terrorists creation. The reasons are many and varied why Israel would want to keep this area destabilised, but possibly to further the aims of a greater Israel amongst others.
There must be some truth that ISIS = israeli secret intelligence service.

“My very simple question is: “What is the agreement between Israel and ISIS, so neither of them is attacking the other side?”. ISIS is attacking everyone else but Israel. How that comes?!?” => I will explain you! Look at the start of ISIS blitzkrieg : al military commanders were Saddam’s colonels or generals! Even al-Douri was in, but left just after the blitzkrieg! Ohoho!!! Hey, ISIS founder Zarqawi hid (and even was a little jailed) in Iran before entering Iraq with help from Quds force! He later split from Osama and united with former Saddam’s generals and intelligence high ranking… Read more »

For you to go to such lengths just shows that my explanations of Israeli motives and the meaning of the ISIS acronym are bang on the money.
