It Is Israel

If it isn't Assad and if it isn't the rebels, who could lob poison-gas missiles into Syria?

Israel has lobbed missiles into Syria before on several occasions and it is the only country in the region that can do so with impunity. Pushing the United States to attack Syria directly serves Israeli interests. Israel wanted to poison the relationship between Syria and the United States anyway. What better way to do that than to show that Syria committed an abhorrent crime against humanity? This will not only get the gullible United States mad but will also get the whole world aligned against Syria.

Up till now, there is no sure evidence that Syrian forces actually fired those missiles that carried the poison gas into the suburbs of Damascus to kill hundreds of men, women, and children. These types of massacres and killings are the specialty of Israel. Remember the white phosphorus in Gaza and the mass killings in Lebanon? This episode has the fingerprints of Israel all over it. This time, it is designed to not only kill women and children as in the past; it is also designed to get the United States, with all its might, involved in directly attacking Syria.

It may be too early to know all the facts, but I am almost certain that Israeli fingers are involved in this massacre. Listen to the eerie silence of Israel and its allies. They are covering up something.

The whole episode is a reminder of what happened just before the war in Iraq when Colin Powel showed the whole world the evidence for the existence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. In fact it was no evidence at all. The results of that fiasco have stained indelibly the credibility of the United States and its allies forever, not to mention the lives that were lost and the treasures that are still being wasted.

This time, my prediction is that the plot will not work. Although everybody abhors Assad and his murderous regime, I cannot agree to convict him of something he may have not done. In time, the world will realize that Israel is behind the whole scheme. If the United States does attack Syria on the basis of the flimsy evidence, provided mostly by Israel, it will be a grave mistake for which we shall all pay again with our lives and treasure.
