2. What kind of nonsense!!!
Israeli 2   (12.12.09)
Even if Israel would flatten them with a nuke, they would not surrender....because defeat is what they know all their lifes. They would simply cry to the world and say: "Look what they have done to us!!!" Like always. To surrender is to be a traitor.
3. tiny Israel
Barney ,   USA   (12.12.09)
a threat in the middle east. imagine that. these countries are paranoid. probably looking for the boogey man under their bed. leave Israel alone and you have nothing to worry about. Keep agitating and provoking and look out brother. You will get what you deserve.
4. Iranian-Syrian cooperation
Spencer ,   Israel   (12.12.09)
It's as plain as can be. Two terrorist sponsering countries are openly co-operating yet President Obama is still pussyfooting around trying to please them. Mr. Obama, get off your ass. Actions speak louder than words. Do something.
5. About Syrian strategy.
Ron B. ,   Lod   (12.12.09)
Independent of the Golan Heights, the Assad regime considers the axis with Iran a long-term, strategic interest and not a tenuous-tactical marriage of convenience. For Assad to pry away from Iran, in return for the Golan Heights and US engagement, would require to de-Assadize himself. The Syrian leopard cannot change its stripes; it does, however, change its tactics. More about Syrian diplomacy at :
6. An Alliance Foretold By The Hebrew Prophets
Christy ,   Boston, US   (12.12.09)
to take place in the Last Days. It's a good time for people to become familiar with the Hebrew Prophets, especially Ezekiel. Read for yourself, in whatever language is best for you, and make sure to look up current equivalents for the countries and nations that are mentioned. There's quite a wealth of information to be found on the web. A great song about what is happening is called 'Days Of Ezekiel' (on youtube). No mention of anything Christian, that I recall, just kind of puts prophecies by the ancient Hebrew prophets together for today. It is a popular song in Christian circles these days.
7. West offers Syria little in security to keep Israel happy
Bloodyscot ,   Dallas, Texas   (12.12.09)
Syria fears Israel for good reasons with Israel using their air space at will. The West is unwilling to help Syria since Israel would see that as a shift in power in the area. Israel air control it key to its defense and a threat to other in area. For Syria to truly control it own air space it needs help from either Russia or Iran to attain the S-300 system and newer air craft. Syria is too dangerous to Israel for it to let this happen but will likely only be able to delay it.
8. Turkey should join Iran-Syrian pact-In future Pakistan,Irak

12. Barney's Ramble #3
Shlomo Kamra   (12.12.09)
Israel has the 4th largest army in the world. It has 5.5 million people, plus any number of part-time Israelis from the USA and elsewhere. So don't call it "tiny" Barney. Israel is paranoid of its neighbours Barney, not the other way around. Israel should pullits head in-that 3 billion dollar shopping credit, and veto vote won't be around for much longer, and a nuclear Iran and Syria are closer than you think. But then you are a part-timer in the USA, aren't you Barney, so your opinion is just tiny-eh?
13. Syria and Iran
Brod ,   USA   (12.12.09)
sign defense cooperation. In the face of this, Israel should not be wasting its time and effort talking with Syria. It is time Israel starts focusing in preparing the nation in defending the homeland against its enemies.
14. # 12
Birdi ,   Israel   (12.12.09)
Take note; The population of Israel today is; 7.1. million people. 75.8% are Jews. 19.9% are Arabs-mostly muslims. 4.3% Druz,Circassians & others not clarified by religion.
15. Syria, Iran join forces against common enemy
William ,   Israel   (12.13.09)
You mean "democracy" and "human rights"? Yeah, band together with other despots to keep that horrible stuff out of the country.
16. By all means we need Syria Iran unity RIGHT ???
M. S. ,   mpls america   (12.16.09)
I realize if israel is compared to 1939 Germany then of course Syria Iran may be compared to 1939 America England thus by that logic I must hope for welcome Syria Iran co operation sound insanely absurd alas every thing about Western diplomacy is insanely absurd I A A I the bible tells us that question is can we learn can Israel learn to understand it RIGHT ??? Thank You... M. S.
