Premeditated Aggression: Official Israeli Policy
Israel willfully launches premeditated, unproved, illegal acts of aggression.
by Stephen Lendman
A previous article discussed Israel's Wednesday attack on Lebanon. Reports suggested Syrian weapons and munitions heading cross border were struck.
It asked why would Assad send vitally needed weapons and munitions to Lebanon? He needs all he can get.
What's Israel up to? Is something else going on? Is it trying to provoke Syria to retaliate? Does it want to entrap it in all-out war?
Doing so would involve Washington and NATO. It would mean Syria's undoing. It would ignite regional conflict. Potentially it could morph into global war.
Assad's got all he can handle. He's contesting Washington's proxy war. He's got hostile neighbors. Turkey and Jordan are threatening. Israel attacked before. Naked aggression is longstanding Israeli policy.
