Israel Threatens Syria Strike After Deadly Bombing

Thu Sep 02, 2004 10:54 pm

I am pleased that Israel is not taking the homicide bus bombings earlier
this week lightly. On the other hand, it might go the wrong.....

JERUSALEM (AFP) - Israel threatened to launch a military attack against
Syria, accusing Damascus of being directly implicated in a double Hamas
suicide attack which killed 16 people.

As Israel's top diplomats pressed their case that Damascus should pay the
price for sheltering Hamas leaders, deputy defense minister Zeev Boim
dropped strong hints that a strike on Syrian targets could be imminent.

"The rule that 'anyone who deals in terror against Israel is a target' is a
rule that must be stated and one that we must stand behind," Boim told
public radio, adding that Israel would take care not to cause a
"conflagration" on its northern border.

"It is possible to launch operations, provided that the targets are well
chosen and that the moment is right, in order to make the Syrians understand
that there are red lines that cannot be crossed," he added.

If Syria can be proven to have been in some way involved, then they should pay the price.

During this year, Israel threatened to bomb Syria 77 times.

.... This is the number 78.

I didn't say it would be easy. I just said it would be the truth

Damn, that sure sounds familiar.

Israel indeed threatened Syria a few times this year (78 ???? sounds like BS).

Asad was given a personal notice by an IAf F-16s flying over his villa on the Mediterranean coast earlier this year.
