JERUSALEM — According to the Washington Post "Israel’s defense chief said Tuesday a Russian plan to supply sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles to Syria was a “threat” and signaled that Israel is prepared to use force to stop the delivery.
The warning by Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon ratcheted up tensions with Moscow over the planned sale of S-300 air-defense missiles to Syria. Earlier in the day, a top Russian official said his government remained committed to the deal."
So there you have it, friends. Israel is going to attack Russian ships delivering air-defense missiles to Syria so it can retain its absolute air supremacy in the Middle East.
Now I know that Israel compared with Russia is like comparing a mosquito with an elephant (or bear), but given that Israel has nukes and is deranged enough to use them and has the U.S. as its main supporter, the situation is fraught.
The bottom line is that Israel, like the U.S., has no right to tell other sovereign countries what they can and can't have. But it has been occupying and oppressing the Palestinians for so long (since 1947) that it has lost touch with reality. Therein lies the danger.
Of course, if Israel sank a Russian ship, the Russians would retaliate and then the American leadership, which is nearly as deranged as that of the Israelis, would enter the fray and...well you can see where that little lot would end up!
The important question which must be answered is: is the world going to become embroiled in a nuclear holocaust because a tiny group of Israeli religious fanatics insist on dictating to the rest of their geographical neighbors using threats, military force, and occupation?
If the world doesn't address this situation soon, the holocaust that will follow will make what happened in Germany in WW2 look like a Sunday School picnic and humans will face extinction!
Perhaps that would be a good thing.
