1. Israel knows too well it's all for local consumption
Khalid Amayreh ,   Occupied Jerusalem   (07.12.18)
2. Israel is never a priority for Assad,survival of regime is
Shela Ramon ,   Tel Aviv   (07.12.18)
Assad has to appear anti Jewish to Justify survival of his tyrannical minority regime
3. The irony is that even Assad's Syria views Iran as a threat.

4. Wheels within wheels
Tim ,   Brighton   (07.12.18)
Its also how the Irans RG views Assad

In one word..contempt and in another..ridicule..they dont refer to him as 'the Giraffe' for nothing

Whats Iran wants Assad and Russia are not going to give

Iran wants to establish a military presence in Syria along the lines of Lebanon that inevitably threatens Syria sovereignity and integrity as well as 'uncoupling' 'unislamic' Russia from Syria at the same time to give it a free hand in Syria and the region

That leaves Turkey who begin to find themselves at odds with the proliferation of Iranian bases in North Lebanon and North Syria that may be used to fuel instability along Turkeys borders and advance Irans hegemonic ambitions

Seems wherever Iran goes....trouble follows
5. no surprise here
but realpolitik dictates accommodation with Assad's regime. Solution: kidnap him, show him a good time on TLV beach, mediatize it, and send him back unharmed to his own misery.
6. Ironic that Assad has killed more of his people than Israel
David ,   Hartford USA   (07.12.18)
The president of the glorious utopia of Syria is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of his own people.

In all the Arab-Israeli wars combined, Israel didn't kill even 5% of the number of Syrians Assad has been responsible for killing.

The Syrians are not stupid. They know Israel is not the problem. If they could, they would all move to Israel in an instant. They would turn on Assad even faster.

How can the world allow Assad to remain in power. Remove him. A Russian puppet state is preferable to a continued Assad nightmare.
7. What else would you expect
Rami ,   Helsinki   (07.12.18)
Psychos rarely make any sense. Arab homeland is in the Arabian peninsula. It is much easier to bully Turkmen, Kurds and Sunnis in Syria than to attack Israel.
8. you want to see what it's like to be a pupil in elementary
Rafi ,   US   (07.13.18)
school in Assad's Syria?

Read "The Arab of the Future 2 - A Childhood in the Middle East" by Riad Sattouf. It's written in comic book/ graphic style, very easy to follow.

After reading it, you'll understand that anti-Israel is the least of the mishugas these kids are put thru in this mafia-run regime. No wonder they're all killing each other today.
9. If Syria keeps slaughtering her own people
BBB   (07.13.18)
there wont be any people left to brain wash.
10. Syria/Israel
Luiz F Haddad ,   Niteroi, Brazil   (07.23.18)
Assad's dictatorship is filthy. Peace had been possible if Syria and other Arab countries accepted a good agreement with Israel 70 years ago, even after 6 days War. Radicalism and fanaticism harm a lot.
