Israel threatened by U.S. after rejecting call to attack Syrian advance

WASHINGTON — The United States has launched a campaign against Israel in wake of its refusal to attack Syria.


Diplomatic sources said Israel rebuffed a request by President Barack Obama to attack the Syrian Army as it advanced toward rebel strongholds in the Golan Heights in May 2014. The sources said Obama’s aides, including National Security Adviser Susan Rice, warned Israeli leaders that they would regret their decision.

“The Israelis were warned that their refusal to attack [Syrian President Bashar] Assad’s forces would be very costly, and over the last few weeks there has been increasing evidence of U.S. retaliation,” a source said.

The sources said Ms. Rice and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel rejected Israel’s explanation that an attack on the Syrian Army could spark a war that would include Iran.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

Want a nuclear exchange in the M.E.?

Hang the Israelis out to dry and see what happens...
