Assad in rare message to Israel: We won’t start war or let foreign forces control our borders

DEBKAfile Exclusive: Bashar Assad used a European go-between to send this secret message to PM Binyamin Netanyahu. A similar note came from Beirut.

DEBKAfile’s exclusive intelligence sources report that late last week, a personal Note from Syrian ruler Bashar Assad was secretly handed to Prime Minister Netanyahu by a European intermediary. “War is not what I am after. All I want now is to focus on reunifying Syria and rebuilding the ruins of war.” A key phrase followed: “We are a sovereign nation. We shall not hand our borders over to the control of any forces other than Syrian.”
This phrase was taken as an assurance by the Syrian ruler that the Hizballah forces fighting in Syria would not be allowed to deploy on its borders with Israel, and came in response to Israel’s concerns  It was sent out directly after Prime Minister Netanyahu visited President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Jan 29 and warned him that Israel would not stand by for the establishment of a Hizballah or Iranian troop presence on its northern border with Syria. It is presumed in Jerusalem that Assad acted on his own initiative in sending this note to Jerusalem.

The day after it landed on Netanyahu’s desk, a second secret note arrived from the Lebanese President Michel Aoun, a reputed ally of Hizballah. This one was devoted to assuring Israel that there were no Iranian missile factories in Lebanon – nor would the Lebanese government allow them to be constructed in the country. Another European diplomat carried this note to Jerusalem. Aoun did not write it himself; he instructed the Lebanese foreign minister Gebran Bassil, his son-in-law, to sign it and pass it on. Bassil went on to emphasize that should the Lebanese president believe that operations by Hizballah did not serve the country’s national and security interests, he would not hesitate to say so loud and clear.

It was impossible to confirm whether or not Assad and Aoun had acted in concert to cool the war fever hanging over the region in the wake of Israel’s widely broadcast concerns over the potential threats looming over its northern border. Netanyahu apparently gave his answer to the two presidents on Sunday, Feb. 4, when he opened the weekly cabinet meeting by saying: “We are not looking for war, but will do everything we have to, to defend ourselves.”

    Iran prompting their lackeys to send notes to buy more time as if Jews are as fucking stupid as they are..

    Look at the Jewish vs. Muslim Nobel Prize track record. Jews won’t be outsmarted by Muslims, it’s impossible. As another poster here reminded us, the Mudslimes are descendent of Hagar, Abraham and Sarah’s slave. They have no claim to Israel and their intelligence and resolve in battle shall always remain inferior.

    Netanyahu sent the Iranians a public message, that if they push their luck any further, they’re for the chop.

  • Feb 5, 2018 @ 11:21 at 11:21

    Wonder if the Soviets (oops——-I meant the Russians) could have possibly had a hand in convincing their “friends” to send both messages to Israel on their behalf————–after all, their recently acquired air and naval bases (currently undergoing expansion) would be in relatively close proximity to any conflicts between Syria, Iran, Hezbollah and the multitude of Shiite mercenary militias verses Israel. No doubt the Russians intend to keep their new military facilities in the region there for a very long time no matter what and will do whatever it takes, bar nothing, to obtain their objectives whatever they may be.

  • Feb 5, 2018 @ 11:33 at 11:33

    No message from Iran sent to Israel as of yet declaring that they have no intention of starting a war to wipe Israel off the face of the earth and that they will be leaving Syria and evacuating their “advisors” from Lebanon soon————-although the Russians are still working on trying to convince them to at least compose such a message, then get some government official to sign it, then find another European intermediary to deliver it to the Israelis———–but Putin’s working on it.

  • Feb 5, 2018 @ 17:08 at 17:08

    This statement sounds prophetic, it honors the pact made by Laban the Aramean and Jacob, the mothers of Israel are Syrians. The should no cross the pillar to attack each other. Last time Syria attacked Israel, Syria lost the Golan. Genesis 31:52 This heap be witness, and the pillar be witness, that I will not pass over this heap to thee, and that thou shalt not pass over this heap and this pillar unto me, for harm 53 The God of Abraham, and the God of Nahor, the God of their father, judge betwixt us.’ And Jacob swore by the Fear of his father Isaac.

  • Feb 5, 2018 @ 17:37 at 17:37

    Israel should not believe either note nor change any planned course of action unless there is a real withdrawal of enemy forces from near their border.

    • Feb 5, 2018 @ 17:57 at 17:57

      Putin twice, Assad, Haoun; all of them reassuring Israel about their peaceful intentions. Iran is moving its puppets triying to cover the imminent war. Now Israel can be sure that the Psalm 83 war is just arround the corner. Wake up Eisenkot!!!!!

      • Feb 5, 2018 @ 18:03 at 18:03

        Actually, it is due inevitable time for an Israel pre-emptive devastating attack on Lebanon and Iran. Assured victory!!!

      • Feb 5, 2018 @ 18:11 at 18:11

        Extremely correct

          • Feb 5, 2018 @ 18:45 at 18:45

            No preemptive attack unless it is targeted to demolish the Junta… But do you have a valid replacement? These regimes are puppets so as long as you didn’t behead the puppet master or replace the regime with something solid it is only more spilt blood. If they attack first, then of course the Bush doctrine is the right one for these guys, but when it comes to paying the bill who wants to volunteer? Think you need to start giving land rights to soldiers, especially IDF fighters, not for sale land, tithing on a permanent basis for Islamic second class citizens (like the Koran requires of non Muslims but in reverse). This would be terrible and very permanent loss for Muhammed.

  • Feb 5, 2018 @ 18:06 at 18:06

    Yes, Iran with its mighty, massive and technologically unsurpassed air and naval forces, along with its deodorant challenged, dirty bathrobe brigades, is on the march! Trouble for them is, America isn’t run by political correct sissy Bushes, Clintons and Obamas anymore, tip toeing around, apologizing, and tying Israel’s hands. Get ready for a great big American iron fist in the face you’ve long time had coming, filthy Islamist scum. Death to you all, and your sissified Western sympathizers.

    • Feb 5, 2018 @ 18:20 at 18:20

      Death Cult Fascist Iran couldn’t even defeat Sadaam Iraq in its 8 year war. But the ayatollahs were effective in brainwashing Persian children to clear minefields from that war – and die in the process – to put on smile on their hide in a well “mahdi”.

      • Feb 5, 2018 @ 18:56 at 18:56

        True, they have never faced a worthy opponent. Yet, they talk like they are invincible; annoying but laughable, and will end with ignominious defeat. Shades of 1967. Lots of boasting back then too.

    The real question is: Does Assad and Michel Aoun have any control over the Iranians and Hezbollah. I don’t think so especially after Iran spent $35 billion on defending Syria and an unknown amount in Lebanon. My observation is that both Syria and LEbanon are bought and paid for by Iran.

    • Feb 6, 2018 @ 11:03 at 11:03

      @Douglas Vogt,

      You are 100% correct. Just note that Aoun is a supporter of Hezbollah, so he himself did not sign the message to Israel but commissioned an expendable “lower level Lebanese government official” to actually sign it, presumably out of fear as to what might happen to him. Hezbollah seems to have a nasty habit, among other things, of murdering government officials that they perceive are not acting in their best interest, both in and out of Lebanon. Assad has no problem as he just “loves” them with Iran’s approval, of course. Your observation is right on the mark about Syria and Lebanon being “bought and paid for” by Iran but you may want to add Iraq to that (remember their “land bridge” to Lebanon) and possibly Yemen as well with any eye on Saudi Arabia (Mecca under Shiite control)!

  • Feb 5, 2018 @ 19:34 at 19:34

    Time to get practical then.
    But how laughable. Tell it to your own kind.
    Are they all, Hezbollah, Iranian foreign militia fighters and Iran going to vanish and continue to push for war underground?
    Very much unlikely and, Israel is ever watchful.

    interesante !!! , una de dos,o el dictador sirio y el payaso libanes estan tratando de calmar las aguas para que las IDF no arrasen los poco que les queda para gobernar,o estan siguiendo una estratagema para engañar a Israel,en cualquiera de los dos casos,solo quien gobierna en iran decidira,o se retiran de las posiciones ofensivas que estan proyectando,o seran atacados ,iran incluido .
    Putin no los salvara !!!!!
    estaran solos frente a Israel y EEUU .
    Putin no llevara a su pueblo al exterminio por los ayatolas iranies !!!!
    me parece que los locos del turbante se dieron cuenta,y estan tratando de que baje la fiebre,pero solo hay un remedio,retirar las fuerzas ofensivas de las fronteras de Israel !!!

  • Feb 6, 2018 @ 7:01 at 7:01

    Bashar Assad and Russia, Putin and Iran have committed acts of genocide against sunnis, kurds, etc, and are helping Abu Nazi Mazen to and Nazi Iran to attempt genocide against Israel. They gas people and torture people just like the Nazis did. Now Russia, Syria and Iran is gassing muslims and kurds that never attacked Iran or Russia. Bunch of bloody murderers

      They will be, and the pay back they will finally and most deservedly get for taking American hostages, and bombing the Marine barracks will show these endless sh*t talkers what real terror is.

    He’s got his knife in the other hand.
