Mordechai Kedar: An Open Letter to President Assad

Bashar Assad

B. The world has been standing for a year and a half, watching impotently as the butcher of Damascus slaughters his citizens. There is no reason to believe that the world would behave any differently if we were in a similar situation to the Syrian people. This is nothing new: After the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in August 1990, it took the world half a year to shoot the first shot against Saddam’s military, and during this period the Iraqi soldiers killed hundreds of Kuwaitis, humiliated beyond words all the daughters of the state, looted all the banks and emptied all the possessions of the houses of the Kuwaitis. We, just like the Syrians, cannot depend on the conscience of the world (if there is such a thing) in any matter that relates to our national and personal security.

C. The borders of Israel must be determined according to the worst case scenario: the possibility of an Iranian invasion into Jordan via Iraq obligates us to remain forever in the Jordan Valley, and the possibility that a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria will become a Hamas state like Gaza obligates us to remain forever in the rural areas between the cities of Judea and Samaria. Peace agreements like those that we have with Egypt and Jordan are not a guarantee of security, especially while there are regime changes such as those that we see these days in Egypt.
