1. Such childish assertion, of course: Islam is reaching point
of no return and sooner the better.
2. Negotiations among two powerful countries is needed.

Looks like Israel is still operating in the same style of the past, when it was dealing with inept and corrupt Arab tribal chieftains, or utterly challenged military officers. The result was an assured win, with some help from the Shah too. Now is the age of missiles and experience dedicated fighters, and Israel needs to start singing from a new sheet. Going around drawing lines on the map and consequently getting laughed out of the room is not going to translate into security for Israel. Israel and Iran need get into direct negotiations. Only a win-win outcome can benefit Israel. The zero-sum games of the past won Israel the 48 and 67 wars. The next one is not assured to turn out in Israel's favor.
3. good article. Indeed a dangerous period for Israel & others
Rafi ,   US   (10.08.17)
Biggest problem for Israel is Trump Admin's self-destruction and resulting diminution of Amer foreign power.

Everyday seems to bring more deterioration. Today it is a nasty pissing-match between Trump and capable Tenn Republican Senator Bob Corker.

Bottom line is that despite its bluster, Trump Admin is in NO position to take on new challenges in the Mid East... it's already overwhelmed with its inability to handle No. Korea.

Reluctance for US to get more involved overseas at this juncture is only echoed by the Pentagon.

Therefore, nothing complicated in this chess game: Trump's idiocy and paralysis has emasculated America overseas and leaves a big vacuum that Iran and Russia are only too ready to exploit !
4. For the mahdi to come Iran has to destroy Israel

For the mahdi to come, Iran has to destroy Israel.

With such a condition the mullahs will keep pushing forward their murderous project.

All islamists want to destroy Israel, it is in their books as in Sahih Muslim, 41:6985
"The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews, when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. "

5. the blame falls entirely on the genocidal shia terror regime
C   (10.08.17)
why are you blaming trump.

the rogue shia terror regime has been threatening to annihilate the sovereign
jewish state for decades.
they have been murdering jews and americans for decades.
all of their military moves are designed to encircle israel on all fronts
with the goal of destroying her.
israel should not wait until iran gets stronger.

Iran soldiers look smart and march well but can they fight or are they just for show? Iran will take stabs at Israel but will not full engage because myth of military power will be revealed.Iran leaders should spend resources to better end for all people in area. crazy leaders, sick believers.
7. A point of no return for IRG that will not return live.

8. Funny how Abdur-Rashid Femi on FB calls others slave
Steve Benassi ,   Minneapolis USA   (10.09.17)
Muslim Arabs forced his ancestors into slavery and gave him the name Abdur that means slave in Arabic
9. the truth will set you free
richard braverman ,   los angeles   (10.12.17)
Israel,....will not allow any Iranian presence in Syria, especially war planes or an Iranian pier in the Tartus port..... ==> LOL, hows that going?? the current agreement allows Iran to pursue the research and development of a nuclear weapons .....in ...... sites that must be supervised; ==> clearly no ones listening require full demilitarization on a five-kilometer strip....and a dilution of forces inside Syria;...and ....Daraa-Damascus road as the line which no Iranian would be allowed to cross.. ==> arrogance at the point of madness Finally nobody is listening to the greatest welfare queen in the history of the world; heck even the false flags dont work anymore Its a beautiful thing to watch.... .
10. Syria and Iran
kim ,   huntsville TX   (10.12.17)
Should the fascist theocracy of Nazi israel attack Iran: Russia will immediately enter the fray with all military options. israel will not prevail, they deserve everything they get because of their racist thuggery and war crimes against innocent Palestinian women and children. The world would be a much safer place when israel is run into the sea and wiped off the map.
