Vice Prime Minister Shaul Mofaz, is calling Syrian President Bashar Assad’s war against opposition a “genocide”, and said Israeli support is behind efforts to overthrow him.

“A crime against humanity, genocide, is being conducted in Syria today, and the silence of the world powers is contrary to all human logic,” Mofaz told Israel Army Radio on Sunday.

The comments come as a continually severe crackdown on a 15-month uprising brought the death toll to approximately 16,200, with 52 civilians killed across the country on Saturday, according to the Voice of America.

Mofaz also chastised Russia for selling arms to Syria, calling their involvement anything from “irresponsibility” to “partnership in the slaughter”, and called on the western world to assist rebels in overthrowing Assad’s regime.  “We need to enlist the West. We need our voice to be heard. This slaughter is being carried out not far from Israel’s border,” Mofaz said. “We cannot get involved, for understandable reasons. But I think that the West, led by the United States, has an interest in safeguarding the threshold (so) genocide does not take place.”

Mofaz is the chairman of the Kadima party and joined Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government on March 27, as part of a new coalition maneuver which brought Kadima into the government.

One Response to “Israeli Vice PM: Syrian Assault is Genocide”

  1. How nice that Netanyahu wants to give aid to Syria while executing humanitarian aid workers on flotillas for trying to deliver humanitarian aid to Palestinians. That the U.S. media would print this Israeli hypocrisy shows how controlled the U.S. media is by Zionists. Netanyahu calls the Syrian civil war in genocide, but what does he call the slaughter of Palestinian children? It is so nice to see Netanyahu speak against the killing of Sunnis in sectarian violence with Syrain Shiite Allawites. It must be that he has a soft spot in his heart for al Qaeda. I only wonder why he never said a word as Saddam killed hundreds of thousands of Iranians, or why he never spoke up for the five-hundred thousand Iraqi children that died from lack of antibiotics, of the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis that were slaughtered as the result of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He also never mentions the thousands of civilians killed by the Israeli slaughter in Operation Cast Lead. Yet, now he wants U.S. intervention because some Syrian Sunnis are killed as part of a civil war and he feigns concern because he wants to stir up things between the U.S. and Iran by having the U.S. and Iran fight a proxy war in Lebanon. The most despicable part of this is I will some be called an anti-Semite and Jew-haters for pointing out this Zionist hypocrisy. It is getting easier and easier to discern Zionist motives and media.

    The Saudis would also like to pit us against their enemy Iran, but Americans should remember it was Iran's enemy, the Saudis, who knocked down the Twin Towers. They all were Saudi Sunnis and none were Iranian Shiites. The Saudis oppress their huge Shiite population and justice demands that a revolution begin under the oppression by Sunni monarchs. Also, the Sunnis were fine with the massacre of Shiites by Bahrain and Yemen. Why the queasy stomach now?
