Iran threatens to invade Israel through Syria

Why did the “Arab Spring” Islamic uprisings succeed in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, but fail in Syria? They were brutally put down, of course, but they were in Libya as well. The main reason is that the Islamic Republic of Iran essentially controls Syria as a client state, and was determined not to let it fall, in part for the reasons made clear by the news article below. Also, of course, NATO helped out the protesters in Libya, but not in Syria: consistent with Obama’s ongoing warm and positive attitude toward the Iranian mullahcracy, and refusal in 2009 to do or say anything to support the demonstrators within Iran.

“Iran threatens Israel invasion,” from UPI, November 11 (thanks to JW):

TEHRAN, Nov. 11 (UPI) — Iran is threatening an attack on Israel in response to reports of a possible Israeli strike on its nuclear facilities, an Iranian news agency says.The Iranian Fars news agency, which is associated with the Revolutionary Guards, said some 30,000 Syrians and Palestinians have been training to infiltrate Israel via the Syrian border to carry out suicide missions, Ynetnews reported Friday.

Fars said the men have sent a petition to the Syrian government expressing their willingness to help it through “any crisis” that may arise with Israel.

“They have asked the Syrian government for authorization to infiltrate occupied Palestinian land and carry out suicide missions against Israeli soldiers,” the Fars report said….

That’s one way of putting it, whether he meant Ahmadinejad or Khamenei. Nasrallah also claims that the Hizballah-dominated Lebanese government’s withholding of fundsto the UN Special Tribunal for the investigation of the Hariri assassination was in retaliation for the US’ withholding of funds to UNESCO over its inclusion of an aspirational Palestinian entity that does not fit the criteria for statehood.

Nasrallah is demonstrating one of the cardinal rules of modern jihad: anything can be called retaliation for anything, and someone, somewhere, will buy into the displacement of blame.
