Israel to U.S.: Don’t Surprise Us with Syria

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/171327

(excerpt)

Meanwhile, speaking to an Arabic-language radio station operated by the United States, Syria’s Deputy Information Minister Halaf Al-Maftah said Monday that Israel would face not only Syria in the event that the US, Britain and France attempted to unseat Bashar al-Assad. A coalition consisting of Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria would respond to any attack against Assad with a response against Israel, he threatened. In addition, terrorist groups in Syria and Lebanon would attack Israel with full force.

Although I saw the video a couple of days ago, and basically, the Sunni MB, as they stated to their three hostages and talked to a fourth who said he was a Sunni. The MB guy that you show told him: if you are a Sunni, we’ll carry you in our heads.

That was the sign for things to come for the poor Christians.

They didn’t admit that they’re not Moslem in the beginning. They were asked if they prayed, they sai yes. They got quizzed about the length of different prayers “how many Rakaas**each” They obviously flunked and the bastard was laughing at them with others.

They admitted that they are Christians and asked for mercy. There, I admit, I was in a bad shape and didn’t want to post it.

No mercy and you saw what happened plus torching their trucks screaming the usual allahuakbar.

I’m sorry I had to translate this crap.

**rhymes with Rabaa. Something to do with kneeling.

<..."the United States discussed a British drafted resolution that could allow military action in Syria"...

Pure hypocrisy to accuse Syria of hiding behind Russia and then ObOzo turns right around and hides behind the British resolution!!!!

Really angers me the press just lets these facts slide....this is playing out just like Egypt did...but then they are attempting to gain ground in Syria they lost in Egypt.....when you look at the entire region...it’s easy to see the agenda and motive has nothing to do with ASSAD...it has plenty to do with the Globalist agenda.

19:01 GMT: Russia has a right to veto in accordance with the UN Charter, but it is premature to comment on voting on the UK’s draft resolution on Syria, said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov.

He explained that the resolution is currently being distributed by the “sponsors” of the document among several UN member states, calling it a “common working process.”

Such distribution is unofficial, thus it does not trigger a 24-hour rule for a vote after the formal introduction of a resolution to the UN Security Council, Gatilov said.

Geez, I was wanting to log onto the Ny Slimes web site. (Massive sarcasm!)

The Syrians have figured out that the NY Slimes is a key Obozoliar supporter and enabler of his evil acts.

Maybe they can take out ABCNNBCBS, the Compost, Atlantic Urinal, LA Slimes and a few other of Herr Obozo Liar’s PR sites.

Youtube with Biden warning GW not to start military action against Iran without approval from Congress. If GW did, Biden promised to start impeachment proceedings.

One might ask Joe, “Why not now Joe if your Obozo Liar bombs Syria without Congress’s approval?”

What would have happen to FDR if he had ordered our Flying Tigers to attack the army of China instead of Japan’s air force and troops in China?

--

I guess he would have gotten away with it if ALL the news media of those times had lied and served up propaganda to support him, and 95% of the uni-party politicians supported him.

The media in this country are absolutely despicable.

I know it is not an easy thing to interpret this stuff Mel...I’m sorry it was painful for you. It should pain us all what they are doing to Christians there...and will do if Assad is taken down.

I didn’t know what they were saying and found it difficult to watch them extend this interrogation and draw it out as they did....Would it have been possible to just not have stopped, when they flagged them, and make a run for it?

Perhaps none of us know what we would have done in that situation...

I hate these men...I truly do...yet the world still does not seem to get what is in store for all nations peoples if these guys continue to do as we’ve seen in Egypt and Syria and the other nations where they destroy everything in their path.

Then we have such a lame brained administration and congress who really hasn’t a clue what they are contending with....it seems like a replay of Egypt...except Russia is in this and that does make a difference.

Thank you for your interpretation MEl...as rough as it was to do... we are all grateful......sometimes truth is even hard to reveal.

Iranian reporter who, in the middle of a chemical warzone finds evidence that the foreign-backed insurgency fighting the Syrian government is using chemical weapons against Syrian soldiers in Jobar.

Here's a chilling thought - just speculation on my part:

what if BOTH sides in the conflict have access to chem weapons?

Be very cautious with Aljazzera.....during the Egyptian Protests 20 of their journalists walked off permanently because of the station requiring them to fake stories and not report the facts as they discovered. Qutar owns it ....pays to know who they are supporting....known is the Muslim Brotherhood.

Got news for them...I am not buying anything they are ‘selling’ if no republican congress person that I trust sees the classified version! Even then, I would worry about them being scammed. I sure as hell will not buy anything that McCain, Corker, King, Mike Rodgers, Graham and a host of other rino sell outs will push!

It would be easier to list those I still trust...because the list is much, much shorter....lol.

Talks could take days, foreign secretary says as pressure mounts on west to let weapons inspectors finish their job

EXCERPT

Hague also said he thought it would be a mistake for military action to be delayed too long. “It’s very important not to take so long to respond that people confuse what the eventual response is about,” he said.

Yep..they do already have some, but will probably get their hands on a whole lot more when the bombing and chaos begins. There will be WMD storage sites that will probably be abandoned by Syrian soldiers....no doubt the AQ terrorists can hardly wait to steal more.

Dangerous situation. I would rather Syrian regime have control of WMDs....they have had chemical weapons for decades and never used them or given them to terrorists. All bets off soon.

Thanks Obama....you traitorous scum..

....”there’s isn’t any good reporting in these threads, only the bad and the ugly”....

Unfortunately that is the path and swath the Muslim Brotherhood leaves in their path anywhere they've raised their ugly heads out of the slime pits they come from.....

Was interesting refreshing my memory yesterday of how Assad came to power and his father...all the way back as well.

.....The Sunni Shite thingy always plays out in Syria and why Assad is always seen as a thug by other nations....he's been doing the same thing as the Army in Egypt has done....keeping the Brotherhood from power and the Extreme Islamic Law they desire to rule with.

Egypt would have never lead to World War....but Syria may very well do so with Russia and China in that mix.

The French would like to gain back some say in Syria as well...and British....Obama likes to hide behind them both.

At any rate... I also researched the Suez....what a raw deal Egypt got on that and no wonder Nassur nationalized it and the people loved him for doing so. Understandable why Egypt never believes anything the US, British or French have to say.....they have a long history of abusing Egypt's good intentions.

Syria is not a signatory to any chemical weapons treaties, and this all happened within their own borders. Try again.

I never have liked any of the posters and drawings etc. of the Crusades depicted as Americans....it was a Catholic thing IMO and not a Christian thing at all. But they did get on board with the idea none the less....and made Christianity look evil in the eyes of the nations.

Amash: Syria authorization vote would fail
By Jeremy Herb - 08/28/13 03:40 PM ET

A vote in Congress to authorize military action in Syria would fail, Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) said Wednesday.

Amash is one of more than 100 House members who have signed onto a letter urging Obama to receive authorization from Congress before launching any military strikes in Syria.

He alleged on Twitter Wednesday that the White House — and perhaps the congressional leaders of his own party — isn’t bringing Congress back to vote on a Syria resolution because it would not pass.

“Why don’t Pres Obama & leaders in Washington want Congress to vote on attacking #Syria? Because the vote would fail,” Amash tweeted.

Well they should wait...but meanwhile the “political dance” in the UN and among our congressional leaders needs to be the show as well.

‘Hague’ is undependable and in my opinion as dangerous as McCain....perhaps more so since he has the position to make some calls which makes wether he’s given the go or not...He needs to be on a very short leash.

Dear Mr. Amash: Unfortunately at this time, the president has the authority to launch a military action against Syria without congressional approval.

Why?

Because the president will claim "that the U.S. was in grave danger" from Assad's chemical weapons. [Many presidents have used that clause]

Now, we all know that's bovine excrement, but the Republican controlled House has no balls. Can't impeach the first black president, even if he tramples on the Constitution (and flag: see First Wookie).

I know the Senate for conviction is a lost cause. Even if 0bama is impeached, we get Biden.

I hope we all survive the next three years.

Just one little problem in my humble opinion .... since the rebels with mb backing probably did the deed (imho) I have complete doubt, if proven, anyone would be told anything other than the probable lie being brought to the forefront. Something else is going on and the west may have full knowledge of the rebels and the mb having been the perpetrators. This opens up threat avenue and western leaders are feeding the cobra, in hopes, of the cobra remaining tame enough to not strike the west. Of course though then there are several wild cards named iran, turkey, saudi, china, and russia.
