1. Assad: Iran won't bomb Israel....
DT ,   TA Israel   (11.30.10)
Thats ok then. I am so reassured I will throw away the sleeping pills !
2. the root cause...
courtney ,   usa   (11.30.10)
was your father attacking israel from the Golan 43 years ago...
3. Time And Again The arabs
Brazen   (11.30.10)
say one thing and do another. If you believe bashar, he's this and next week he's shipping missiles and tech support to hizbullah. He's only out to cover his ass, time has proven this also. If iran gets nuclear weapons, bet your bottom dollar they WILL use them.
4. we can take this to the bank
mike ,   israel (formerly usa   (11.30.10)
and assad also says syria wants peace with israel - which explains why they are harboring the heads of the worst terrorist organizations committed to the destruction of israel via genocide, and also have supplied hizbullah with their current arsenal of missiles which are now aimed at every population center in israel. yes, let's believe the chinless one.
5. Why Then is Syria Making Nukes
Dav Lev ,   Burbank. CA   (11.30.10)
Israel has 400 nukes,many of them cobalt and neutron. It also has suitcase nukes..literally fitting into a suitcase.What is to stop Hez/Hamas from getting the smaller nukes..and exploding them in, lets say, 5 major Israeli (non-Arab) cities, like Tel Aviv and Eilat, W. Jerusalem. As far as casualties..both Syria, Jordan,Iraq and Iran have killed mllions of their own kind. Would they feel sorry for a few thousand Pales..maybe? But consider the goal. Why is Syria bulding nuie plants anyway, for show?
LAWRENCE ,   SAFED ISRAEL   (11.30.10)
And Assads' hatred is the cancer.
7. Thanks but no thanks
Lippy ,   Proud Israeli   (11.30.10)
Thanks a ton Mr Assad for the info. I, however, don't believe a word you say. After all you are an Alawite and your mate Ahminijazz is a Shiite, and neither of you love Sunnis, and even less, Jews.
8. won't bomb
Andy ,   Canada   (11.30.10)
You have love the twisted mind of an Arab dictator. The Iranians won't nuke Israel because they'd kill Palestinians. Not because it is the wrong thing to do, not because it kills innocents on all sides. They also don't say that they would try to find a way to make lasting peace. If the Iranians love the Palestinians so much, why not invite them all to live in Iran. They can have the houses of the hundreds of thousands of Jews that ran away from Iran over the years.
9. ASSad
pini ,   usrael   (11.30.10)
much of what he said contradicted himself. "The Syrian president said he believed Iran was not interested in pursuing a nuclear weapon, but warned that an Israeli military strike on the Islamic Republic's nuclear infrastructure would fail to disable the program and would only increase Iran's determination" hmm so determined to do what again?? A strong defense is a strong offense.
10. Assad's truism
Raphael ,   Netanya   (11.30.10)
He needed a long reflexion to realize that the Pals are Israel's human shields. However, Ahmadinejad is sick of antisemitic hate enough to turn them into ashes, trying to erase Israel. As usual, they will be rewarded by 72 virgins.
Ian ,   ניוקאסטל אן טיין   (11.30.10)
'Assad confirms that Israel is using all the Arabs in Palestine as human shields against Iran nukes.' That should cause a heated discussion and condemnation of Israel. THREE CHEERS FOR ISRAEL!!!
12. Iran does not care about Palestinians
Joe ,   Canada   (11.30.10)
Contrary to what Assad believes or pretends Iran does not care about potential Palestinian victims no more than its leaders care about killing opposition members in their own country. They support Hamas which does not recoil from killing or torturing other Palestinians who don't agree with them. They are Shiites who do not have a liking for Sunnis. Their only concern if they were to attack Israel would be make it look as a fight for the "liberation" of Palestinians which they would present as worthy a few hundred or touthands "martyrs" among the Palestinians.
13. so with what?!!
Salma ,   Palestine   (11.30.10)
14. salma #13
David ,   Haifa Israel   (11.30.10)
do us all a favour and go live in iran... juts leave us alone and we promise to leave you alone. deal?
15. Assad the laughable fake - worried about lives?
Brian Cohen ,   Judean Peoples Front   (11.30.10)
Arabs and Iranians worried about massive casualties? Oh get real. Why didn't Nehemias get a diplomatic expert to comment on Assad's stupid statement? Syria and Iran both arm and control Hezbollah in Lebanon. Neither Assad nor the mullahs in Tehran were worried when they let Hezbollah attack Israel two years ago and spark a war that left over 1000 Lebanese dead and thousand more wounded. Assad's father was the one who killed 20,000 of his own citizens in Hama in order to quell an intifada there. Assad is trying to pretend that he's a modern kind of nice guy. Baloney, he's just another despot willing to sacrifice thousands of others so that he can stay in power.
16. tell it to your brother
dodong ,   Israel   (11.30.10)
Israel is wise enough mr. assad maybe you tell it to newborn babies and they will believe you.
17. Treating Cancer?
Zorro ,   NY City   (11.30.10)
Iran is The Cancer and ASSad is the malignant tumor
18. Assad is a doctor he knows how to cure
Syria Eagle ,   Homs   (11.30.10)
the sick the paranoid or those who are outright crazy take it as they like the only way out from disease is to kill it people differ about getting rid of the disease in terms of methodlogical approach but they tend to the same result
19. Assad
Ezra ,   Florida   (11.30.10)
Israel and the rest of the world can relax now. Our great "friend" Mr. Assad promised that Iran will not nuke Israel. And who are we to question his words and integrity (if he has any)?
20. Who is the Israeli that will beleive you ?
Nora Tel Aviv   (11.30.10)
21. 14# Assad a doctor ? My foot.
Nora Tel Aviv   (11.30.10)
22. Reading
John ,   Herzliya, Israel   (11.30.10)
From some of the comments one can make a conclusion that you actually read what is written above. It didn't come to my mind, when I saw the headline I said: Yeah right..
23. Israelis who come from all over
Jazz   (11.30.10)
live in peace in Palestine and stop playing games. Did God "give" you land before or after 1948 when israelis declared their own state
24. Assads big mouth
Ken ,   Australia   (12.01.10)
Yeah sure assad, lets just sit back and beleive every word you say, this guy is the biggest liar that ever lived. This guy would not know what the word TRUTH means, this guy is so caught up in its own bullshit he beleives his own lies. The real truth is , syria is an enemy of israel, assad will say anything to take the heat off there backs and especially iran. You can only ever beleive the opposite of what this guy sais, because we all know, 5 minutes later there will be a different melody playing in damascus, I only wonder what there eating over there, becsause some one puts something in this guys food.
25. #18 Syria Seagull
Hal ,   Usa   (12.01.10)
Next time you go for brain surgery, don't go to a dentist, it only makes your posts harder to understand!
26. Assad
Hal ,   Usa   (12.01.10)
If Assad or any other Arab leader was so concerned for Palestinians, They would not have imprisoned them in refugee camps with no rights for 62 years, not to mention stringing them along and encouraging them into one failed strategy after another. If anything, leaders like Assad use the Palestinians like some people use roosters for cock fighting. Pathetic!
27. #23 Jazz
Hal ,   Usa   (12.01.10)
Obviously history is not your "groove". Jazz maybe an overstatement as well!
28. No. 18, Bashar is an Optometrist not Oncologist
Ben Alofs ,   Bangor, UK   (12.01.10)
Why does Al Wahsh bring up cancer all of a sudden? Who has ever this Alawi cured, Kurds, Druzee, Sunnis, Hariri, Kamal Jumbalat, Bashir Gemayel, Hama City center? Maybe the radiation from the destroyed nuclear reactor is spreading in Syria which transformed you into a crow caged in an Alawi prison.
29. as always...
nathan ,   Chi   (12.01.10)
the arabs blame israel and the world believes them.
30. Israel's neighbors don't really care about Palestinians
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (12.01.10)
If they truly considered Palestinians their "brothers", they'd take them in, settle them, grant them citizenship, and treat them with respect. They'd be providing funds to support the PA, UNRWA, But they don't. Never have. Even Jordan is stripping citizenship from many Palestinians, and those living in Lebanon have always lived under severe restrictions. But past events confirm that Israel's neighbors really don't care if Israeli Arabs or Palestinians are killed. Iraq fired Skuds at Israel in 1991 (while Palestinians cheered) and Hizbullah fired rockets into northern Israel in 2006 killing a number of Arabs. Iran's Khamenei once remarked that if there were a nuclear exchange with Israel, Iran would suffer, but at least Israel would be destroyed, and Islam left triumphant. So why would anyone think they wouldn't accept Palestinian casualties, as long as Israel was destroyed in the process?
