WEB Notes: Do you see how Assad is always painted in the colors of the enemy? Years ago ‘he used chemical weapons’. The UN said that was a lie. Then Assad’s reign caused a civil war they said. That was a lie too. Then he gased his own people again and now he is allowing Iran to set up shop in Syria. Lies, lies and more lies. Iran certainly has some form of base in Syria. They are military allies and this partnership has existed for years and years. They will find any reason to destroy Assad and they seem to be tired of waiting for his demise.
Israel will “eliminate” Syrian President Bashar Assad if he continues to let Iran operate from Syria, Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz said Monday.
Steinitz told Israeli news site ynet that Assad needs to know it will be his end if he allows Iran to turn Syria into military base in order to attack Israel.
“It’s unacceptable that Assad sits quietly in his palace and rebuild his regime while allowing Syria to be turned into a base for attacks on Israel,” he said. Steinitz later clarified his comments reflect his personal opinions.
