IDF troops on the Lebanese border. Back in 2006, the Lebanese terror group Hezbolla inflicted massive damage on Israeli civilian centers up north. Now it has been weakened by its involvement in Syria.

There’s much to be said for President Obama’s reluctance to re-play the Iraq WMD scenario in Syria, not to speak of entering yet another regional war. But if that’s the case, Obama would have to go out of his way to reassure the Israelis that Red Lines are not all alike, and that while he’s skeptical about America’s need to act on Syria’s Red Line, when it comes to Iran it would be an entirely different story.

  1. The best thing is not to take part in any outside conflict and to let the Syrian to "decide" whom they prefer to rule them. Israel will be involved Only in cases that one part of the Syrian game players will act against Israel, directly (shoot at Israel) or not-directly (pass missiles and Chemical weapons to Hezbollah).

  3. al qaeda allegedly rebels. assad and hezbollah in the regime. What's best? For Israel to stand by and let the terrorists on both sides exterminate each other.

    Someone pass the Israeli Golan wine. It is turning out to be a very good vintage.

  4. It's obvious that at least in the short term the Ba'athist Assad regime was a safe, predictable neighbor. The rebels seem to be primarily composed of radical Islamists who would as soon attack Israel than bring down Assad. Long term, there seems to be no up side. The Muslim world, the Arabs in particular, seems to be going up in flames. This will get much worse before it gets better.

  5. This has the look of something that is coming to a head. A critical point of decision, a crossroads. Will the west get involved militarily? I noticed how familiar the situation in the middle east looks compared to what the Bible states will happen in Isaiah 17. Did you know that Damascus Syria has historically remained inhabited from the time of it’s founding until today? Despite military losses it has always been populated. Yet Isaiah 17 states that God will take it away from being a city. That has not happened as of yet. If God chooses to use mans weapons of mass destruction as one of the tools to bring that about then today’s news concerning Assad should get you interested enough to take a longer look at that short chapter. In addition Iran continues determined in it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Yet here we are with the clock ticking. In July of 2012 I wrote a small book that lists some of what the Bible says will happen in the end times as well as what will happen during the period known as the seven (360 day) year tribulation and other soon to take place events. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s about 6 or 7 pages, so it’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.
