1. You have the right to remain Silent...
zob ,   Ashqelon, Is   (02.01.13)
Anything you say can and will be used against you in self defense. There will be NO further discussions.
2. OIC....Organization of Islamic Corruption...
Ivan ,   South Africa   (02.01.13)
3. Syria has a right to retaliate
Albrecht Klein ,   Germany   (02.01.13)
But do they also have the guts?
4. Right to retaliate sure, but you won't
Jacob E ,   Holon Israel   (02.01.13)
Just like when we hit that weapons manufaturer a couple months ago. They said they had the right to retalliate... but did they? no... and they weren't even in the middle of a civil war. Neither is Syria. They know that by retalliating they will start an actual war so their right to retalliate turns into the right to get their asses handed to them by Israel and by the rebels all at once. So in the end, they will probably just use their right to remain silent.
5. The truth
Gil ,   Tel Aviv   (02.01.13)
Iran before Israel attacked Syria: "Any attack on Syria will be deemed an attack on Iran and we will retaliate immediately". Iran after Israel attacks Syria: "Syria has the right to defend itself". So basically Iran are all hot air. They won't attack Israel at all or come to Syria's defence. The truth is that Israel will attack Syria again and Iran will do nothing. And by the way Iran - you're next. (written by a guy that lives in Tel Aviv not a "cyber warrior".
6. There's nothing about this on the OIC website
Mark ,   London, UK   (02.01.13)
The main story is a condemnation of the burning Of Islamic manuscripts library In Timbuktu. The article goes further to say, " the Secretary General deplored the violence, intimidation and destruction carried out by extremists and bigots which can be no means be attributed to the pristine Islamic religion, which is innocent of such acts." Well, at least someone is able to call a spade a spade. Using their internal search engines, the most recent two stories are appeals for donations for Syrian refugees (some hope of that!) and the third is a condemnation of any threat to Syrian Christians. Interesting?????
7. Iran, the mouthpiece of Syria and terrorists everywhere
Jacob E ,   Holon Israel   (02.01.13)
Notice how Iran is the one talking all the time for Syria. It is very obvious Syria is Iran's btch. I look forward to the day the Iranian regimes fall and free thinkers are not only in Israel in the middle east.
8. Job well done Israel!!
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (02.01.13)
Syria and Iran have a whole other kettle of fish to fry. Their mutual aim of Israel's destruction will bring both Iran and Syria to her knees. Looks like Israel will also retake the Golan and eliminate another crisis with her war torn massacring neighbors. Iran and Syria will talk but no action they know better. Israel would eat them up and spit them out ....
9. Show us photos of Research Centre that proves a raid occured
10. Israel has NO choice !
moshe ,   Tivon, Israel   (02.01.13)
In Israel we are like a safe haven floating in a sea of hatred. When push comes to shove, Israel must use extreme measures to eliminate the immediare threat. It would be wise to conserve our strength to deal with further threats. Fellow Israelis: would be wise to keep QUIET so not to agitate the dogs that are snapping at our heels. If let with no choice: We will kick the sh## out of them instead of cleanly bombing arms shipments. moshe
11. To: Gil at No. 5
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.01.13)
"Iran before Israel attacked Syria: 'Any attack on Syria will be deemed an attack on Iran and we will retaliate immediately'." "Iran after Israel attacks Syria: Syria has the right to defend itself'." * * * Sir, you have made my day. I can't stop laughing.
12. Touchy situation......
Koose E Mack ,   NY NY   (02.01.13)
Sure Syria has the right to retaliate...and unfortunately, even more innocent civilians will die. It's a very simple equation...leave us alone and we'll leave you alone. If you provoke the toughest kid on the block, you are going to get the beating of your life...Hence, you either go to the hospital or the graveyard. Your move!
13. #11
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (02.01.13)
That threat was directed at Obama, who the Iranians view as a coward and empty suit. The Iranians have only one objective: get nukes. If not attacking Israel will further the objective, they will not attack.
14. The Syrian people
Mark ,   London, UK   (02.01.13)
Iran is in denial that the Syrian people don't like their despot. In their own country this is of minor significance as they are not facing a popular revolt. I hope the Syrian people are rather too tied up with their own future than to worry about a third party (Israel) destroying the arms that might otherwise be used against them. I wouldn't credit the Syrian people with enough sense to realise where their bread is buttered in the medium/long term, but I suspect they won't be placing much faith in Iran. Quite the opposite, the Syrian people seem to be amazed that "the West" will not setp in to save them. While remaining alert, I would leave the Syrians to sort themselves out and decide who their friends are.
15. To: Israel Israeli at No. 13
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.01.13)
Then the Iranians should stop running their mouths, right? This American views Obama as a coward and an empty suit, too. He's the most incompetent president in the history of the United States -- and we've had some doozies.
16. blindfolded
Anthony ,   usa   (02.01.13)
His name 'asafari' means in my native language 'shameful'. He is truly to his name. Nobody should be worried about their empty slogans. their hearts are full of hate. so nothing will reason them. just ignore their tongues and woop their behind.
17. Haji afarti Shut Your Pie Hole
You Have NO SAY in syrian internal affairs, your ILLEGAL regime in tehran has been Fomenting Violence And Mayham in the region and abroad for Too Long And The Day Of Reckoning Is Soon Coming To Pass? You Have NO CREDITABILITY WHATSOEVER ! So Nobody Cares What you Have To Say! Be Very Very Careful You Are Under A International Microscope And Oppions Are Swaying Against The Worlds Largest Terrorists! BOOM BANG KABOOM!
18. Wonder if this guy has condemned 60,000 murders?
Carl ,   USA   (02.01.13)
Or attacks across the border into Turkey. Or the countless other atrocities perpetrated by Assad and his government of thugs. I would suggest Iran reign in Assad, not condemn Israel. In Assfari's own words, "if a proper response is not given at present, Assad will not hesitate to carry out further attacks on Syrian people."
19. OIC - Organization of Islamic Confusion or Organisation of I
C.E. ,   Nigeria   (02.01.13)
What is this idiot talking about? Is it about OIC - Organization of Islamic Confusion or Organisation of Islamic Crisis. These are rubbish but hungry set of people.
20. Hit em Again!
Chaim Ben Kahan ,   Efrat, Israel   (02.01.13)
Israel should strike Syria over and over as well as any Iranian targets in Syria and Lebanon. We cannot afford to allow Iran free reign on our doorsteps to foment terrorism.
21. Iran's exhortations
Get Real ,   UK   (02.01.13)
Since when were the Iranians concerned about the rights of the Syrian people? Tough talking as always from Iran but no action. Don't they realise that the Syrian regime has enough mess to contend with at home without opposing Israel's right to defend itself from the threat these weapons pose to Israel.
22. And they retaliate
NT Green ,   NYC   (02.02.13)
the way they know how The coward way, killing innocents terrorism, kidnapping
23. SHUT UP & buy more guns from daddy
Iranian Jew ,   LA   (02.03.13)
Putin! He got you in tis mess and is laughing all the way to Kremlin. When will real Persians wake up!!!! They are getting played by the towel heads and keep going back to them.
