‘Israeli air strike opens new front in Syria war’

RussiaToday·Jan 31, 2013

Syria claims Israel has carried out a deadly bombing raid on its territory, destroying a military research centre near Damascus. It denies claims the attack targeted a weapons convoy near the Lebanese border.

It’s the first time in decades that Israel has launched an attack on another state, NOT in response to military action. Israel and most Western powers are keeping silent on the incident, which has sparked condemnation from Russia.

The Arab League has described Israel’s strike on Syria as flagrant aggression and a glaring violation of the country’s sovereignty. Abayomi Azikiwe, Editor of Pan-African News Wire, says the attack on Syria is all part of a plan to bring down the Assad government.

Israeli fighter jets targeted a military research center near Damascus early Wednesday, the Syrian army has revealed. In press remarks, US officials claimed the Israeli attack struck a convoy carrying Syrian weapons bound for Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The Syrian army’s general command issued a statement saying that the airstrike was launched by the Israeli Air Force (IAF) against a military research center in Jamraya, rural Damascus.

“Israeli fighter jets violated our airspace at dawn today and carried out a direct strike on a scientific research center in charge of raising our level of resistance and self-defense,” SANA quoted the army statement as saying.

Four warplanes took part in the assault and dropped nine rockets, Lebanese TV station Al-Manar reported, citing military sources. […] via


Iran condemns Israeli strike on Syria

PressTVGlobalNews·Jan 31, 2013

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast has condemned Israel’s airstrike on Syria, saying that the Tel Aviv regime seeks to create insecurity and instability in the region. “The operation conducted by the aggressive Zionist forces against some targets in Syria last night shows that this regime is after creating instability and insecurity in regional countries as well as weakening the resistance movement,” Mehmanparast said in an interview with Press TV on Thursday. He went on to say that Israel’s move also indicates that the Tel Aviv regime continues its crimes and aggressions whenever it finds the opportunity.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman warned that those who are creating tension, insecurity and instability in Syria are “in fact voluntarily or involuntarily laying the ground for more violations and aggressions by the Zionist regime [of Israel].” “Regional countries should be aware of the main danger in the region. They [West and Israel] are trying to create a rift between Islamic countries in the region. They are also trying to create unrest in countries that are in the frontline of the resistance movement against the occupying Zionist regime [of Israel],” he explained.

    • Vera, you’re right. The vicious irony is that the only way this “war on terror” can ever be won, is for the real terrorists to be pilloried. Unless we expose the sheer criminality of our own governments, the entire world will descend into irredeemable chaos.
      The US, together with its allies and proxies have sown the wind. Now they must prepare to reap the whirlwind.
      The only way out is to transcend our simplistic patriotic loyalties to the flag of choice or to nationalist fictions, and declare allegiance to a cause more noble, righteous and honorable than just the dominant government “brand,” the “one true faith” or the petro-chemical god and his radio-active fake mushroom.
      We must stand up for the dignity and virtue of mankind in all its manifestations. The US has turned into some sort of monstrous mincing machine.
      Much of the human race is debased, but if the de-facto pretenders to power are even more base than the lowest of the low, what chance have we of any decent universal governance that accommodates the cultural diversity, ecological wisdom and spiritual integrity of all?
      We must reject tyranny, in whatever guise it manifests. Those who wrap themselves in the flag, bereft of moral competence, should be the first to be challenged.

  1. Democracy by demolition.
    Of course once everything is destroyed there is no possibility of redeeming these societies. So it is cultural genocide, plain and simple. The designation “war crime” has no meaning whatsoever in today’s lexicon of power.
    This can only get worse.
    The US had better beware, because the further it escalates this manufactured zionist conflict in the Middle-east, and by direct implication implements its lunatic dream of colonizing the ancient Persian empire in the name of biblical determinism, the greater the inevitability of China’s trump card being played with devastating economic consequences. The one law Washington cannot escape or evade, is the law of unintended consequences.
    The US flagship will be stuck up a creek without any possibility of retreat. The world’s most sophisticated war machinery running on a flat battery? It’s a perfect trap of their own making.
    Tant pis.

    • Good investigative news gathering journalism

      We the few must never forget that good investigative news gathering journalism that pushes cameras in the faces of this kind of evil —- brings about discontent that will in time generate mankind CRY OUT STOP aggressive wars.

      Therefore instead of the good journalist having to stop to publish a book so they can go back to work — let us all think about funding a pool of money for them to draw from as they go about doing good.

      We must never forget a workman is worthy of his pay.

  2. Crony Capitalistic States performing as told too!

    Pushing and shoving through these war-mongering agendas is not new. Those actions have been going on for a very long time, and seems they will not change until mankind takes the lead to run out the despots making those calls.

    Why, when and how these war-mongering agendas are planned out far in the future and the signs of those plans taking form and fashion are clear to most that view with clear vision and ears that hear.

    With that as fact then we who care and have concern for our fellow humans we must do what we can with our voice and means.
