Russia to Israel: Why the recent strike in Syria?


…by Jonas E. Alexis


Russia has asked Israel to provide a reasonable explanation for its military airstrikes in Syria last Thursday.[1] Israel, of course, summoned the old boring and unconvincing explanation that Syria was trying to transfer weapons to Hezbollah.

The Israeli regime produced the same explanation in 2014, when an Israeli airstrike hit the Syrian military forces.[2] The Israeli regime never gets tired of evoking implausible scenarios and explanations, presumably because they think that the West will never challenge them. According to the Israeli narrative, Hezbollah, Iran and the Assad government are to be held responsible for the airstrikes in Syria.

But that explanation again has been weighed and found wanting. As Israeli scholar Avner Cohen pointed out in 2009, Hamas “is Israel’s creation.”[3] One can argue that Hezbollah is also Israel’s creation. In other words, whenever Israeli officials seek to pursue their diabolical ideology in the Middle East, they just put all the blame on Hamas or Hezbollah or even “anti-Semitism.” In response to the recent attack, Netanyahu declared:

“Our policy is very consistent. When we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah — when we have the intel and the operational capability — we act to prevent it. That’s how we’ve acted and how we will continue to act…and everyone needs to take this into account. Everyone.”[4]

Complete nonsense. Keep in mind that when Netanyahu says that “everyone needs to take this into account,” he is basically saying that the West and the entire world must follow his essentially Talmudic manipulation. The West needs to suspend rational inquiry and the moral order and adapt Israel’s relentless maneuvering.

John McCain–terrorist apologist.

But Netanyahu seems to forget that there are people in this world, including this writer, who will never bow down to Israel’s perpetual fabrications and colossal hoaxes. He also seems to forget that Jewish scholars—including Zionist Israelis like Benny Morris—have actually written on Israel’s ethnic cleansing and manipulation of the actual facts.

As Jewish scholar Sara Roy has argued in her meticulous study Hamas and Civil Society in Gaza: Engaging the Islamist Social Sector, organizations like Hamas would not have been possible had the Israeli regime stopped oppressing, torturing, humiliating and liquidating the Palestinian people. The regime has a history of raiding and looting bakeries “that provided bread” to girls’ orphanages and “carting away sewing and processing machines, fabric, finished garments and office equipment…”[5]

In short, we know that the Israeli regime is playing a diabolical game in Syria. But where is Donald Trump? Why doesn’t he also ask the regime what they have been up to in the region? Why doesn’t he tell them that Israel cannot continue to attack the Syrian government? Didn’t Trump say that the so-called Syrian rebels are worse than Assad? Then why he is letting the Israeli regime support the same rebels?

Moreover, take a look at the Zionist Kingdom: The New York Times, the Washington Post, CNN, etc. Take also a closer look at marionettes like John McCain. (McCain has perversely declared that Rand Paul is working for Vladimir Putin.[6]) They all fail to report that Israel attacked a sovereign nation, which is in violation of international law.

Rand Paul has suggested that perhaps it is time for McCain to retire.[7] We would say that it is time for much of the world to put him on trial. Perhaps it is high time for Trump to stop playing games and ask the Israeli regime to stop meddling in the Syrian war.

Finally, Trump needs to flesh out a rigorous and consistent foreign policy, otherwise we will continue to say that he is in bed with the Israeli regime. Will he continue to be a servant of the Israeli regime like his predecessors, most specifically George W. Bush? Will he ever challenge the Powers That Be in Israel? Will he expose the 9-11 perpetrators? Or will he continue to produce their lies and fabrications?
