The initiative of a military solution to the Syrian issue was expressed not only by Netanyahu, but also by Israeli President Shimon Peres.
Last week in Strasbourg, participating in the plenary session of the European Parliament, Mr. Perez acted for the intervention of the armed forces of the LAS countries in Syria. Speaking to parliamentarians, he said: “The Arab League can and must form a provisional government in Syria to stop the bloodshed and prevent Syria from falling. The UN must support the Arab Blue Helmets.
There is no doubt that Syria was decided to crush. Half a month ago, US Secretary of State John Kerry for the first time openly admitted that the West was training military men in the so-called "Free Syrian Army". “Many countries work with us in this business,” said Mr. Kerry. “And I think that President Assad should be careful in predicting the future.”
A few days later, the State Department decided to "non-lethal" assistance to the militants, as well as to allocate them sixty million dollars for certain "public services". Participating in the "Friends of Syria" Roman Meeting, Kerry сообщил to the leaders of the Syrian opposition that the US will provide them with additional assistance in the amount of 60 million dollars, and at the same time provide communications equipment and medical supplies. According to the Secretary of State, the money will allow the opposition to provide "various services" to the population of the areas it controls, and thereby strengthen support from local residents. Europe immediately responded to the initiative of the State Department. EU Council allowed supplies to the militants of the opposition "non-lethal military equipment": binoculars, night vision devices, communications equipment, uniforms.
Now Israel has started Syria.
A few days ago, Israel’s military intelligence chief Aviv Kohavi saidthat the opposition controls about two-thirds of Syrian territory, and the collapse of this state is already a fait accompli. At the same time, speaking at a conference in Herzliya, Major General Kochavi warned: the influence of radical Islamists is growing and widening in the ranks of the Syrian opposition. And these people, having solved the main task (the overthrow of Assad), "direct their energy against Israel."
Kohavi said: “Syria should not be taken as a whole. There is the state of Assad, and there is a rebel state, under the control of which two thirds of the populated part of the country are under control ... Most of the cities are fully or partially controlled by them. ” The general added that the border areas with Israel of the Golan Heights turned into a mosaic of enclaves fighting each other: “Eleven of the seventeen transitions (between the demilitarized zone adjacent to Israel and the rest of Syria) are in the hands of the rebels, and not only refugees pass through them, but also weaponand even jihadist elements. ”
According to the head of the Israeli military intelligence, Assad troops are preparing to use chemical weapons against the opposition. In addition, Iran and the Hezbollah movement form a militia of fifty thousand fighters for fighting in Syria. Its number can be doubled if necessary.
At the same time received a statement from the Syrian side. Official Damascus accused Israel of supporting opposition militants who launched subversive activities in the demilitarized zone on the Golan Heights. In a letter addressed to the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the President of the Security Council (Vitaly Churkin presides there in March), the permanent representative of the UAR to the UN Bashar Jafari indicated on the inadmissibility of the actions of the Jewish state.
The text of the letter states: “They are a flagrant violation of the Treaty on the Division of Forces from 1974 and impose responsibility on Israel for the threat that these groups (militants) pose to the security of UNDOF troops and officials”.
The Syrian diplomat also stressed that militant groups “enjoy the fact that the United Nations is turning a blind eye to the danger associated with their activities, which, thanks to the logistical support of the Israeli occupying forces, is clearly felt in the area of responsibility” of UNDOF.
Who does Israel support in the Syrian conflict? If the "opposition fighters", then what?
After all, Aviv Kohavi warned about the threat posed by radical Islamists fighting on the side of the opposition, and the Chief of General Staff of the Israel Defense Forces, Lieutenant General Benny Gantz said that some of the rebel forces will soon turn their attention to the south and, quite possibly, will attack Israeli settlements in the Golan Heights.
“We see terrorist organizations that are increasingly settling in this territory, and they are fighting against Assad,” said Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz at the same conference in Herzliya. - And you know what? We will be next in line. ”
Probably, Tel Aviv considers the militants (more or less radical) of all who are fighting today in Syria. The Assad army is in alliance with Hezbollah and a hostile Iran, possessing chemical weapons, and the opposition, in whose ranks Al-Qaeda representatives and Islamist mercenaries from all over the world are being hunted, are hunting for these and other weapons, which may well be used in the struggle for the Golan Heights, that is, against Israel.
What is the solution found Tel Aviv? Anti-Syrian cooperation with the United States, which, undoubtedly, will significantly reduce the number of those who fight for Assad, and those who fight against.
The American president said earlier that the US Army would use force in Syria if the Syrian regime decides to use an unconventional weapon or hand it over to extremist organizations. However, in the IDF count them.that Israel was left alone in front of this problem.
Therefore, Benjamin Netanyahu made the “American” decision: after all, the approach to the situation in Syria from Tel Aviv and Washington, in contrast to the Iranian issue, is generally similar. According to the British newspaper The Guardian, Netanyahu going to ask Obama to launch an intervention in Syria. True, the request for American support will come only if irrefutable evidence is found that Syrian missiles from army arsenals began to get to Hezbollah by any means. In the event of a negative response from Obama, the Government of Israel will ask him to provide the United States with full support for the “IDF military operation in Syria and Lebanon to stop the replenishment of Hezbollah’s missile reserves.
Political scientist Eitan Gilboa awaiting 20 in March, when Obama arrives in Israel, says: “Obama has been re-elected. Netanyahu will remain Israeli Prime Minister for the next 4 of the year. They must work together. They should forget about the past and open a new page. And Obama’s visit provides the opportunity to open a new page both at the level of personal relations with Netanyahu and at the political level with the new Israeli government. ”
Obama will be given a present. Shimon Perez going to give He has a desk clock with engraving. Jewelry was prepared for the first American lady and the daughters of the President of the United States. Netanyahu plans to give B. Obama a nanochip covered with pure gold, containing the Declaration of Independence of both states. The chip size is just 0,04 sq. mm embedded in the Jerusalem stone of the Second Temple period (about I in. BC), which was used to seal the clay vessels.
Thus, it becomes obvious that after March 20, the fate of Syria will be decided. To this we must add that at the Brussels summit of the EU, held at the end of last week, the Syrian issue was the key. Two statesmen - the British Prime Minister and the President of France - met before the meeting. Hollande and Cameron are full of militancy and threaten to circumvent the EU embargo on the supply of arms to both belligerents in Syria. The supply issue will finally be resolved, probably on March 22-23 in Dublin, at the planned meeting of European foreign ministers. For the arming of the Syrian "opposition" London intends to spend for the beginning of 20 millions of pounds sterling. Thousands of militants will be enough for arming to the teeth, and then we'll see.
Bashar Asad wrote to the BRICS countries for help. Now it's up to the top five.
