BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 A.M.) – On Sunday, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman clarified Israel’s position on the ceasefire in southern Syria saying that Israel was in no way party to the Russia-US brokered ceasefire agreement and it retained complete freedom of action in Syria.

In the context of understanding what Israeli freedom of action is in Syria, basically Lieberman insisted that Israel was still free to bomb pro-government forces and supply Golan-based jihadists with weapons and medical assistance.

Talking about military-related actions in Syria as if it were an Israeli right, Lieberman insisted that as part of the Zionist government’s “exclusive responsibility for the security of Israeli citizens”, its freedom to act was “absolute” and that it would do “everything that is needed”.

Israel’s particular concern in Syria is the presence of Iranian soldiers and Hezbollah militiamen in the Golan region, where the two country’s borders meet.

In this regard, Israel seeks to deny Tehran and the Lebanese rebel movement, both of whom currently assist the Damascus government in fighting terrorist groups (namely Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State) throughout Syria, access to its Golan border area, as had been available to them prior to 2011.

Seems really the common practise in the Middle-East to accuse others of one’s own crimes… The Ten Commandments of YHWH, God of the Hebrews and Christians : Exodus Ch.XX 1 And God spoke all these words: 2 “I am YHWH your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. – I. 3 “You shall have no other gods before[a] me. – II. 4 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down… Read more »

And, what is Putin’s response, Zionist puppet that he is?
Iran’s defense minister, or maybe Major general Qasem Soleimani (if he has the authority), should make an analogous statement!

oh, how your fear of your god rules you.
you must never challenge your master’s prerogative, mustn’t you?
some would rather die as men than live as slaves, little woman!

Those great enslaved Hatians didn’t fear WAR, now did they! And, thus defeated the army of the greatest general that Europe EVER produced.

I just love these couch generals. Russia is NOT prepared for war with NATO. But if you think nuclear winter is a good weather for people, just push the button, ok? Geeez….

armchair general?

so you’re implying that i’ve no combat experience?

i will beat your punk euroTRASH a*s to a pulp without working up a sweat.

I referred to IRAN, which has no fear of YOUR god!

take me up, PUNK! i’ve got the cash and time to come wherever you are and whip your PUNK euroTRASH a*s!

then again, it’s bad form to whip a woman’s a*s, ain’t it?

then again, again, were i to go to europe, i’d probably be attacked by a pack of your fellow euroTRASH thugs, just like Bakari Henderson was. however, not being an ameriKKKan n****r fool, believing in the false inclusiveness of ‘post-racial’ ameriKKKa or liberal european society, i’d neither travel to that birthplace of all white-trash, nor allow myself to be murdered by a pack of soulless sub-humans.

ROFL! Except it raised due to terrorist attacks in 2015, usually, our murder rate is under 1 per 100k (it raised to 1.5 due to some pretty massive attacks). Your Bakari had 5.3x more chances to end assassinated in his Arizona than in Greece. Usually, you have 3x more chances to die in a car crash than being assassinated here. I don’t know from where you are but if it’s Haiti, you’re 12x more likely to end murdered than in Greece. So you’re a racist against the whites, against the Jews. WOW! Don’t worry, we already have much too much… Read more »

98% of Iranian don’t even go to mosques, actually, if Khamenei hadn’t IRGC and personal army to protect his a*s, he’d be hanged to the 1st tree! Actually, Iranians think even Savak was less worst than sharia! BTW, Jean-Jacques Dessalines and not Janjak Desalin. His empire in Haiti lasted for 2 years before he was assassinated by his own staff. Now, when you see what Haiti became if compared to Martinique or Guadeloupe, usually, all those who preferred staying French ended doing MUCH better than those who left. Moreover, Dessalines acted like a tyrant and slavery had already been abolished… Read more »

Putin’s response was to put Russian personel in that region of the ceasefire. If Israel launches another attack, Russia will say that Israel endangered the lives of Russian servicemen, and therefore will now be targetted by anti-air systems.

That is, Israel can make one more attack in Syria before the get banished.
