Syria’s Deputy Information Minister Halaf Al-Maftah has publicly declared that his government has put together a coalition with Iran, Iraq, and Lebanon, along with Hezbollah terrorists to launch attacks against Israel and the Jewish People.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism (ITP) said on Tuesday that an unnamed Syrian military source, described as a lieutenant colonel, says dictator Bashar al-Assad is ready to send 1,000 missiles into Israel if Syria is attacked by the U.S.

ITP referenced a Syrian website where the statements in Arabic, revealed Syria’s intentions.

Hezbollah’s involvement was confirmed by Aaron Kalman of the Times of Israel who reported that the terrorist organization, Hezbollah had mobilized troops ahead of possible showdown and with the Obama administration and some members of Congress ready to strike and that an Arab media outlet reported that Lebanese fighters are absent from villages.

Kalman said, “The Arabic daily Al-Akhbar, a paper considered close to both Assad’s regime and Hezbollah, said the group “called on all its officers and members to man their positions.”

ITP also reported that the radical Islamic Muslim-American organization, CAIR, has alerted the Muslim community, especially the Syrian community in the U.S. to not cooperate with the FBI without an attorney due to a report from the New York Times, that the FBI stepping up scrutiny on the Syrians and Assad supporters inside the United States.

Proof of who actually launched the chemical attack in Syria has not been provided according to the AP.

The Associated Press (AP) said and republished on Military.com, “Nearly two weeks after the alleged chemical weapons attacks on areas east and west of Damascus, many unanswered questions remain. Neither the U.S. nor the Syrian regime, which blames rebels for the attacks, has publicly presented proof.”

While the U.S. and Syria have not provided proof of who initiated the chemical attack that killed thousands in Syria, the Paulding County Republican Examiner stated in two reports that the Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Qaeda backed rebels were responsible for the chemical attacks.

In one report, Egyptian professor, Dr. Amin pH. Makar stated said on Sunday, “There is no doubt that the Islamic rebels, Muslim Brotherhood, possess chemical weapons. Nobody seems to have heard what the Italian minister of foreign affairs has told a few months ago in a similar incident, “said Makar.

In the second report, a video recently surfaced showing that the Syrian rebels used toxic chemicals against Syrian government troops and civilians near Damascus and not by the Assad and the Syrian government, contrary to the Obama administration’s assertion.

Meanwhile, Vision to America (V2A) reported that the military members are weary and tired and do not approve attacking Syria.

V2A said, “A military revolt against the Obama administration’s plan to launch a potentially disastrous attack on Syria is gathering pace, with both top brass and regular service members express their vehement opposition to the United States becoming entangled in the conflict. The backlash began to spread on social media yesterday with numerous members of the military posting photos of themselves holding up signs stating that they would refuse to fight on the same side as Al-Qaeda in Syria.”

Assad is a lot of things, but suicidal he is not.  He knows what Israel will do in retaliation.

That may be the idea of threatening to tie Israel down with a coalition that includes Iran:  that several of the countries may suffer serious damage but that at the end of the day Israel will be overwhelmed and defeated.

Then again, it's most likely the sort of morale-boosting rhetoric these sorts spout off all the time.

The thing is, every Arab country knows what will happen if Israel is about to be defeated.  They will launch their entire nuclear arsenal and take all of their enemies with them.  Not only do they have the Jericho II and III ballistic missiles, the latter of which can actually hit nearly any target on Earth, but their submarines carry nuclear tipped cruise missiles ensuring a second strike capability.

I think Assad will take the propaganda bonus from dead children, bombed schools and hospitals and crying mothers and play that to the hilt...with accompanying video of destruction and humanitarian crisis from American bombing.  That will work much better for him than firing on Israel.
