Dirtybird971: Wolfmanjames

mbillips: Cue the "This could lead to WWIII!!11!!!" alarmists. If Israel gave a crap about the Syrian rebels, they and Turkey could team up and take Assad's military out in about three days. And Russia would piss and moan about it, but do nothing to stop them. But they don't, so they won't.

If artillery shells were not landing in the Golan it would be a no lose situation. Assad and the Brotherhood are throwing skulls at each other, and Iran and its proxies are making themselves very unpopular in the Arab world supposring the Chinless one.

I do think Assad it trying to provoke the IDF to play the 'fighting the Zionists' card as did Saddam during the first Gulf War with his Scuds.

Detinwolf: Dirtybird971: Israel is a bunch of thieves and bullies it seems to me. They decided they were going to take Golan Heights and were surprised when Syria got pissed? I mean if Canada decided to take Maine or Washington the "real 'mericans" of the USA would do the same shiat Syria's doing.

I'll be labeled anti-semitic but I think Israel causes more problems than most others over there. And supporting them for any reason is played out.

They took the Golan Heights after Syria attacked them in 1967.

After decades of the Syrians using it as a platform to lob shells down on Israeli civilians in the north.

what for?


The Israelis had the audacity to keep existing after Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and others insisted that they should all die.

Dear Syria and Palestine,

Look, we know you hate Israel. However, throwing rocks at their soldiers (which can be deadly), shooting rockets across the board (which can be deadly) and shelling them from across the border (which can also be deadly) is generally not a good idea.

\Evangelical Christians Religious Fundamentalists. You can't reason or use logic with them.

FTFY from me.


"Religious extremists" is too general a term, and technically includes members of minority groups like Islamic fundamentalists. We'll let it slide this time, since you're probably just used to having to condemn all religions in order to safely condemn Jews and Christians, but any more violations and you'll get sensitivity camp.

Yup, because Vietnam/Cuba/Korea/Iraq/Iran were great examples of keeping the death toll down....



On a global and historical scale, yes, we've kept the death toll exceedingly low, particularly in light of the exponentially increasing power of human weaponry. Perhaps you missed the graph I was commenting on.

And Cuba and Iran? Really? How many have we killed in those lovely places?

the Golan Heights, which tower 3,000 feet above the Galilee, to shell Israeli farms and villages. Syria's attacks grew more frequent in 1965 and 1966, forcing children living on kibbutzim in the Huleh Valley to sleep in bomb shelters. Israel repeatedly protested the Syrian bombardments to the UN Mixed Armistice Commission, which was charged with policing the cease-fire, but the UN did nothing to stop Syria's aggression - even a mild Security Council resolution expressing "regret" for such incidents was vetoed by the Soviet Union. Meanwhile, Israel was condemned by the United Nations when it retaliated.

As far as Israel 'deciding to take the Golan', it just shows a complete ignorance of history and the behavior of Syria literally violating the ceasefire thousands of times from 1948 to 1967 using the Golan Heights as a base to attack Israel and prevent Israel from settling in its legally owned demilitarized zone on our side of the border.

legion_of_doo: Assad dragging Israel into a war, and then making a Hugh Jass mess that drags in dozens of countries & the UN... that's actually kind of a way for Assad to hang on for a bit longer than just playing out the current string, I think.


Either that, or he's accepted the fact that he's on the way out and just wants to leave the world with as big a mess as possible. One final "fark you" to us all.

Hey, who's to argue with the 51st state of the U.S.?

Blame it all on President Carter
The peace treaty between Egypt and Israel was signed sixteen months after Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat's visit to Israel in 1977 after intense negotiation. The main features of the treaty were mutual recognition, cessation of the state of war that had existed since the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, normalization of relations and the complete withdrawal by Israel of its armed forces and civilians from the Sinai Peninsula which Israel had captured during the Six-Day War in 1967. Egypt agreed to leave the area demilitarized. The agreement also provided for the free passage of Israeli ships through the Suez Canal, and recognition of the Strait of Tiran and the Gulf of Aqaba as international waterways.

The agreement notably made Egypt the first Arab state to officially recognize Israel.

As part of the agreement, the US began economic and military aid to Egypt, and political backing for its subsequent governments. From the Camp David Accords in 1978 until 2000, the United States has subsidized Egypt's armed forces with over $38 billion worth of aid. Egypt receives about $1.3 billion annually.

And people wonder why Israel is pretty insistent on holding on to the Golan.

From wiki: The Golan Heights (Arabic: هضبة الجولان Haḍbatu 'l-Jawlān or مرتفعات الجولان Murtafaʻātu l-Jawlān, Hebrew: רמת הגולן, Ramat ha-Golan About this sound (audio) (help·info)), also called the Golan or the Syrian Golan,[3] forms a rocky plateau in the Anti-Lebanon mountains that overlooks southern Syria. The region attracts three million tourists a year and supplies Israel with one-third of its water.[4]

and now you don't have to wonder. 1/3 of your water is a hard thing to make up in a desert.


I was more amused with the bold part. Even the mountains hate Lebanon.

A better analogy would be if Canada was bombing Buffalo and the USA decided to go take Toronto and not give it back until Canada stopped bombing us.

BigNumber12: The IDF's Artillery Corps fired a missile towards a post in Syria after a 120mm mortar shell landed in the eastern Golan Heights on Sunday morning.

...

The missile fire drew a harsh response from the rebels in Syria, who accused Israel of interfering on the Assad regime's behalf.


What the fark??


Arab rule of thumb:
1. Israel is always wrong.
2. If something conflicts with this, see rule 1 and apply anyway.
