Syria and Iran Threaten to ‘Surprise’ Israel with an Attack

Syrian and its Iranian ally threatened on Thursday to retaliate against Israel for the undeclared bombing of a truck convoy of sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles header from Damascus to the Hizbullah terrorist army in Lebanon.

Damascus “has the option and the capacity to surprise in retaliation,” warned Syrian Ambassador to Lebanon Ali Abdul-Karim Ali. Pro-Syrian parties and Hizbullah dominate the Lebanese government, and the Hizbullah army has begun to become part of the Lebanese army.

Russia chimed in and also condemned Israel’s attack on the anti-aircraft missiles, which, if they were to fall in Hizbullah’s hands, could cripple Israel’s defense in the event of a Hizbullah attack.

The Iranian regime’s semi-official Fars news Agency reported that Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said the “attack displayed the common goals of the terrorists and the Zionist regime with regard to Syria.”

Fars falsely stated that “sources n Tel Aviv” claimed the attack was on a research center near Damascus, a claim that actually was made by the embattled regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad but not confirmed by any other course.

  1. I AM CALLING FOR A NATIONAL BOYCOTT BY JEWS OF ANY INTERFAITH HOLOCAUST PROGRAM WHERE HATIKAVAH IS INTENTIONALLY EXLUDED DUE TO MUSLIM PRESSURE OR CLERGY WHO SUPPORT THE PALESTINIAN CAUSE. PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG. I have bowed out of the local interfaith Holocaust service, because it was a custom to include Hatikvah at the end, but now some Christian groups object as they support the Palestinians and the Muslim Imams would either sit or leave during the Hatikvah. Perhaps interfaith Holocaust programs no longer make sense, at least to me. I do not need the stress of seeing disrespect being afforded to Israel and nor do I wish to compromise by leaving Hatikvah out. This is a personal choice and I DO NOT ADVOCATE ANYONE NOT PARTICIPATING IN ANY INTERFAITH HOLOCAUST SERVICE. I INTRODUCED INTERFAITH HOLOCAUST SERVICES IN 1974 AND WAS ONE OF THE FIRST IF NOT THE FIRST TO DO SO. This was a difficult decision for me based on personal principle. The interfaith Holocaust memorials started as well intentioned way for the Jewish people and other groups to pause and reflect on man's capacity to perpetuate unbelievable cruelty against his fellow and to commiserate as a group and oHolocaust survivors and athers, with the Jews and hopefully prevent this nightmare from reoccurring. Over the years it was understandably modified to include other victims of genocidal mass killings, though these mass killings were not really analogous, as the Nazis were obsessed at not just killing Jews as a competing group, but Hitler desired to eliminate our creed and it's pervasive influence on humanity, particularly Christian doxy. As a result of Muslim participation and twisted liberalism, this is morphing into a twisted canard where Israel is being blamed for perpetuating ethnic killings against the Palestinians as the Jews were slaughtered by the Nazis. One can understand the Islamo-Nazis belief system with a quote from the Talmud. We do not see things as they are. We see them as we are. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG, CHILD OF refugee born in a D.P. camp.

  2. RABBI DR. BERNHARD ROSENBERG will not attend and boycott if Imam sits during hatikvah.

    Organizers to vote on restoring ‘Hatikva’ to interfaith program.
