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.

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.

Want a nuclear exchange in the M.E.?

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