Russia resumes Daraa air strikes, calls Iran’s exit from Syria “absolutely unrealistic”

Russia, Daraa, air strikes, Russian talks with rebels, ceasefire, BInyamin Netanyahu, Daraa, Quneitra,

Russian and Syrian air bombardment of Daraa resumed late Wednesday, July 4, after a short pause, with the collapse of Russian ceasefire talks with rebel leaders and Jordan. DEBKAfile reports: Rebel leaders continued to stand out against Russia’s proposal to give up their heavy and medium arms, while Jordan opposed the deployment of Syrian troops along its northern border. The final stumbling-block for a ceasefire was spelled out by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov: “Iran is one of the key powers in the region and it would be absolutely unrealistic to expect it to abandon its interests,” he stressed.
Before the Russians put their foot down on the Iranian issue, there was a pause in the Syrian Daraa offensive amid hopes that the negotiations would lead to a cessation of hostilities in southwestern Syria.

DEBKAfile reporter earlier on Wednesday:  The Syrian Daraa offensive has by and large fallen silent and preparations to attack Quneitra are on hold. The outflow of refugees has slowed.

DEBKAfile’s military sources disclose that the Syrian army’s Tigers Force and 4th Division, which spearheaded the Daraa thrust to impose Bashar Assad’s rule on southwest Syria, have downed arms for the moment, along with Hizballah’s elite Radwan fighters. Also suspended are Syrian preparations to go next for the Quneitra region opposite Israel’s Golan border.

Our sources disclose that the lull in fighting was ordered by the Russian commanders due to their low opinion of the Syrian-Hizballah forces’ ability to successfully conclude the Daraa-Quneitra operation in time for the Putin-Trump summit on July 16 in Helsinki.

This Syrian offensive was cut short for two reasons:

  1. Extraordinary military actions launched on the quiet by the US and Israel, as will be revealed in the coming DEBKA Weekly issue out on Friday, July 6. (click here to subscribe).
  2. Russian diplomatic feelers with Washington – and secret approaches to Israel and Jordan for an accommodation – have come to nothing. Neither was a breakthrough reached in the phone conversation on Tuesday, July between US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. The US is adamantly opposed to Putin’s drive to forcibly assert the Assad regime’s authority in the two southwestern provinces on the Jordanian and Israeli borders, knowing that this will open the door to Iranian and Hizballah forces. An attempt to achieve Israeli flexibility on Iran’s presence in Syria, in the hope of indirectly persuading the Trump administration, was also made on Tuesday in a conversation between Russia’s deputy foreign minister Sergei Ribakov and Israel’s ambassador to Moscow, Gary Koren. Putin invited Binyamin Netanyahu to Moscow on July 11, to try again. Meanwhile, the fate of the Syrian front hangs fire as an unsolved issue between Washington and Moscow – largely over Putin’s acceptance of the Iranian and Hizballah presence in Syria.

    Of course it’s unrealistic. Iran/Persia is one of the countries which will soon invade Israel from Israel’s north: Ezekiel 38, 39.

        Turkey is the leader of the Gog alliance. Russia is not part of the alliance. It is not a soon invasion either, because there are multiple other things that must take place before that.

      This just means the World will find it easier for removing the Iranian Robes Regime since they choose not to Remove Iranians out of Syria. So be it, “Age Quod Agis”-(Do What You Do)! Let Iran keep misleading Young Men since “Luventus Stultorum Magister”-(Youth Is The Teacher Of Fools. Thus, So Be It, “In Pace Requiescat”–(May He Rest In Peace)!

      There will be a response as “Credat Judaeus Apella, Non Ego”-(Let Apella The Jew May Believe, Not I), which is an allusion to the Iranian’s Regime has a reference that was used in often during Roman Time. When both Israel and Persia were Ruled from Rome and often showed Contempt for The Jewish Belief that….The Divine Is Intertwined With Everyday Life!”. This is far more Powerful than any Communists Atheists Temporary Allies looking to Loot more Oil with a bad mixing of Mullah’s Rogue Pocket Robbers just like Russian Oil Revenues within Middle East Waters? Moscow is often referred as the Third Rome but Kublai Khan knew how to deal with them when he said….“And Close Your Eyes With Holy Dread, For He On Honey-Dew Hath Fed, And Drunk The Milk of Paradise!” Putin may think he is a New Czar but he is not Ivan the Terrible. Three scenarios below are now in “Fait Accompli” a French Word in Damascus or in American “Done Deal!”

      1. Iran-Hamas Cant Take Care Of Its Own People:
      The First True Facts are Iran has 40% Unemployment as well as Gaza ruled by Hamas. Both Iranian and Hamas Regimes cannot even provide Water as the People Thirsts but they Provide Funds to have their People Die in Syria? The can be removed within and without. Indeed the Arab Coalition with Israel, EU-NATO, and America can Fund Wars in Afghanistan, Iraq and Yemen far longer than than Iran and Russia can sustain their own Governments of Russia, Iran, Syria, Gaza, and Lebanon. Even more they can be Out Gun as well in the entire Regions and this is a Factual Stark Reality. This is easily in Iran, Gaza, and Lebanon as those Governments cannot even Quench the Thirsts of their People requiring Troops to Shoot their Own Discontented People.

      2. Moscow Is In Bad Geopolitical Region & Not A Superpower:
      The Second True Facts Moscow is no longer a Superpower with a Lagging Necessary Population, Economy Purely Based on Oil Revenues, Defense Budget 10 Times Smaller than America, and cannot a sustain a long fight in the Ge0-Political Middle East for any Length of Time reasons alone. The Armed Forces of USA-NATO-EU, combined with Intelligence of Israel, as well as the Arab-America-Europe Coalition Financial Power. Russia is capable of asserting itself, in Syria, Georgia and Ukraine. But that alone Putin Ambitions are Limited even when Putin’s behavior has been ugly and effective as a Modern-Day Czar. Once again, One Man Rule grows Drunker when Drinking Too Much Wine! Just like Khrushchev Russia will back down when Push comes to Shove. When Putin faces a Non-Drinker not afraid of a Bloody Nose just like Reagan did to Gorbachev when he declined to peace in Iceland. China, Kazakhstan, Japan, Mongolia, North and South Korea would not be upset if Putin is Gone with Russian Winter Winds either in Siberia. Finland, Norway, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Ukraine, Georgia, and even Belarusians’ won’t miss him either. Russia needs USA and Europe G-7 more than Iran and can be part of rebuilding Persia again.

      3. Iran, Syria, & Gaza’s Peoples’ Are Thirsty For Freedom:
      The Third True Facts are these Times will be led, by events and common sense, to one conclusion……The Survival of Liberty in the Middle East increasingly depends on the Success of Liberty in Other Lands such as Yemen, Syria, Iraq, and Iran. The Arab Coalition working with Israel, and America are the Best Hope for Peace in the Middle East and Asia for the expansion of Freedom. These are Policies made in Washington, Riyadh, and Jerusalem with Paris, London, and Zurich Allied Duplicity as needed. There is no longer any difference in America’s-Arab’s Coalition-Israel’s Vital Interests built on Individual Freedom Deepest Beliefs are now One for Mutual Global Prosperity. Some Bad Boys will be living in Caves not Luxury while others will be Hunted by their own Power Grabbers of Revenge. The Shia Fighters from Iran, Gaza, Syria, Yemen, Lebanon, Iraq and Atheists from Russia are just Servants Pawns for Greedy Power Pick Pockets. In the end, they are just Wrong Masters to Appeal to in Terms of Seeking Such Strength. They may pay for some Boots to Loot, but Sooner not Later their purchasing of Fighters Fund runs out and so Paid Slaves never out fight Free Men and Women of Will. They turn on their Masters as they Run Away. The Need for Individual Freedom will prevail grows Deep within every Nation’s People that also Serves a Higher Power to Appeal in Judaism, Christianity and Islam whose Precepts Foundations are Education, Charity and Belief in that Higher Power whereby Freedom is Earthly Salvation.

      The Swamps Marshes Of Middle East Oil Oasis Are Arabs, Israeli, & West Advantages:
      Moscow long allied to save Damascus is one thing. However, the ability of Russia continuing a beachhead there does little to diminish Washington’s Superior Influence and now desires to remove Iran’s Regime with Arabic Advice, Consent and Coalition Dollars. After all, the United States is allied with Israel, the Gulf States, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, and just about everyone else in the region. Interesting, Syria is just like a Middle Eastern Swamp whereby there is a great abundance of Fish, Crayfish, and Shrimp grow to nourish Mankind. There are also Alligators in Freshwater Swamps, but Crocodiles, Piranha, and Snakes have greater range but Birds of Prey are there too. There’s that motto to go with “Nemo Me Impune Lacessit”-(No One Attacks Me With Impunity)-The Motto of Scotland!

      Conclusion:
      So far, the Arab Coalition, America and Israel have been holding Defense actions with Patient Warnings. The Riskology of Life and Death Decisions now are facing Putin, Assad, Khamenei, Rouhani, Musawi, Mashal, al-Baghdadi with numerous al-Houthi’s will come to understand that “In Vino Veritas”-(In Wine There Is Truth.) Just like al-Baghdadi son that died in a ISIS Suicide Attack gone wrong…..Thus, So Be It, “In Pace Requiescat”–(May He Rest In Peace)!

          @Anamerican….They have admitted they know but they want to lead the Middle East come out of the Middle Ages. They are farther Smarter than Iranian Leaders that want to drive a Middle East into Atomic Ashes and take the Middle East back to the Dark Ages. Saudi Arabia sees the benefits of working with Israel and and Future Cooperation just like Egypt and Jordan benefits all of them together.

          As opposed to how the Iranians in just less than 40 Years has turn Iran into Poor Third World Nation. Only Iran that got cheating on the Nuke Agreement are Backward Thugs misusing the Koran making Iran a Little Nation.

          Arabia and Persia as well as Israel will be Great Partners for Progress together once Iran’s People Topple Iranian Thieves and the Persian People will settle their Accounts with this Corrupt Regime.

          Allah has Forsaken Iranian’s Mullahs and the Russians won’t save them, Just Take Them like they wanted to do in 1946, until Americans told them to leave.

      @angel kasparov….Well it did happen that way in 1863:

      The Sultan’s Siege of Vienna End On September 11, 1683 with 40,000 Polish Calvary from the Top of Kahlenberg Mountain came down upon and overrunning 300,000 Ottomans Soldiers led by Merzifonlu Kara Mustafa Pasha (Later Beheaded and Betrayed Allies that Abandon and Ran Away As Usual),

      The Arabic Coffee found in Abandon Ottoman Janissary Tents appeared in Europe Later the next Year, but there was never a challenge on Europe again. Instead in World War I, the Ottoman Turks were run out of the Middle East with the European Powers and King Saud of Arabia, that chose the American Private Oil Companies as Partners Towards Progress.

      Until the Persian people overthrow the current Iranian Regime of Hate and Robbery and go back to Persia’s King Cyrus Wisdom Iran will be just be Huffing, Puffing, and Running away leaving their Children Clothes-Less, Thirsty and Staving.

      When a Any Regime cannot provide a Glass of Water to its People they cannot Win at anything, just keep losing, until they change or are removed. Looks like they have chosen removal and just don’t know it yet!

          Che is a Great Example of Man that gain nothing while serving his Power Hungry Masters seeking Wealth and Health at the expense of their own People.

          Ernesto “Che” Guevara is actually a Great Example of how People are are used, urged to fight, and die for some very bad Rogue Leaders to gain Power so they and their Families can live in Luxury.
          This is something Fidel Castro a Pawn of Russia Communism Failed Policies of Proxy Wars has in common with the current Iranian Rogue Robes Regime. The Castro Communists Brothers live in opulence just like in Iran’s Shiia Ayatollahs Mullah’s Families Extravagance. while sending Cubans and Persian Sons to Die in Proxy Conflicts as their Families Live in Poverty.

          Fidel Castro sent Che away after taking Power in Cuba followed by sending Cuban Families Soldiers Living in Poverty to Die in Anglo, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Grenada and Venezuela. Both Cuba and Iran are doing now the exact same thing to their own People suffering while they live in Splendor. Cuban Youth died in Proxy Wars just like how Persian’s dying in Syria, Hamas in Gaza, Hizbollah in Lebanon, and Houthi’s Youth Yemen.

          Che was really misled by Fidel Castro another man that used Che to gain Power and then told Che to leave Cuba after using Che to execute many Cubans for Castro’s Benefit, The Russians advised Castro to send Che away to die in South America where he was betrayed and executed himself.
          Che was captured begging….”Do not shoot! I am Che Guevara and I am worth more to you alive than dead.” Tyrants seeking Power even use and abuse Ernesto “Che” Guevara even now as they ask others to Die for them to achieve Power and Riches, while keeping their People as Stupid as Slaves.

          The Middle East does not need anymore “Che Pawns Dying An Empty Death” it needs the middle Est people come together with families in other countries all coming together to rule themselves, not serve Theocracy Tyrants, Deceitful Dictators, and those living in Mani”SONS” built by the Deaths of too many Middle Eastern Sons and Daughters so they can Live Like G-ds!

      Meeting face to face and eye to eye can read the Poker Tells of any Game, so Winners and Losers can come together after they win some, and lose some, while along the Real Chumps Ruling Robes in Iran are Playing a Game of Shame they do not know.

      When Anyone is a Power Room and cannot Figure Out what all Others are saying while Playing the Game, You Got Two Choices, Stand Up and Leave before its too Late, or Stay and Watch how your Confident Confusion with Great Boastful Illusions makes One Lose Everything.

      POWER IS POWER ….IT IS THE ONE ELEMENT OF THE HUMAN CONDITION NO ONE CAN FAKE.

      The more the Ayatollah and Mullahs Brag, Boast, and Warn the more they are Proving they have Illegitimate Power and they can’t even provide Water To Grow Food for their Own People. They are the Chumps that did much misleading and now they are being misled, and No Is Going To Miss Them When They Are Gone from Power.

      The Iranian Regime thinks they have so much power and doesn’t think they have to do anything to change to undermine their power, but they forget the Persian People merely have to exist and the time is now when the Regime just don’t questions Persian Loyalty they actually need the Persian People to demonstrate it, by standing by them??? Instead they are arresting the Persian People and Shooting Others just when they are needed to Protect their Power.

      The Iranians Rogues Regime are just putting on Pretty Make-Up thinking they are in a Power Room when it is actually a Powder Room that can go Boom at anytime? LOL!

    This will not end well for Russia or Iran. The Iranian regime is on the brink, and will need to re-deploy it’s troops for domestic purposes. Russia is simply on the wrong side of history.
    For their to be peace, Assad must go, Iran must go, and the US must engage to those ends.

        Nope, it is the Iranians Regime of Funding and Fighting on a Dozen Fronts, while the USA with Arab Coalition Funding can out spend, out gun, and outlast any Iranian’s Regime nearly Broke while in the wrong places just like Russia.

        Americans are only an Invited Guests in the Mideast and never sought Conquests like Imperialists in Istanbul, London, and Paris. Isreali’s do their own Fighting as well, never asking American Sons and Daughters to die for Judea-Israel. We both carry our own water and at least have much of it unlike the Iranians and Gazans.

        Nice try, but USA, Israel and Arabic Coalition are One In the Same with all Middle East Interests far more then Iran that has weaken itself since 1979, to where they cannot give a Glass of Water to Persian People. Only Iran’s Regime have achieved Persian Men, Women and Children are Thirsty, Starving and Clothed without Dignity. King Cyrus did it Right, while the Iranians Regime in Robes are just Eastern People Puppets of Western New Greek and Roman Rulers and crying about someone leaving is not a sign of Power, just bitter Whining from Sour Grapes withering on Ruined Iran’s Regime Vines that can’t produce Wines with no Water?

        Abraham, Ishmael, and Issac way of Turning Strangers Into Friends and Family as Demonstrated King Cyrus Sharing the Wealth of all Cultures and Religions under Individual Freedom not a Collective Shina-Atheists Politburo just to fill their own Pockets with Persia’s People Oil Revenues!

        Americans’ with Arabs’ and Israelis’ are offering Hands of Assistance for Co-Existence of Mutual Interests while some Dark Shadows of Rogues Hiding behind Robes slap away Water, Food, and Books to Educate and then puts Guns, Bombs, and Hate with Children they Regulate instead of Freeing?

Iraq and Iran needs Leadership that benefits its own People not just a few Ayatollahs, Mullahs, and Clerics that could careless how many Sons and Daughters of Yemen, Hizbollah, Hamas, and Iraq Shiia Die instead of Living in Opulence like them.

            When Iran’s Poisonous Mullah’s use Hamas and Houthi’s with Persian’s People Money to send Rockets at Arabia and Israel does not gain any Favor from Allah’s Mecca, and Jehovah’s Jerusalem. Abraham left Iraq when they were worshiping Statues as Gods, and brought about the Revelations of One True G-d that taught Mankind to Survive by turning Strangers into Friends and Families as Good Neighbors as also adopted by the Messengers of Jesus and Muhammad.

            Your Current Blindness Is Only On You! We Will Pray You Will Soon See The Wisdom Of Abraham The Father of Ishmael and Issac and that includes all in Iran, Iraq, and the entire Middle East, whether learning from Judaism, Christianity or Islam, as well as applying to Atheists that choose not to believe?

    If Iran is a real threat to Saudi-Jordan and the other Sunni states, then where are they to FIGHT it off? As per usual, the lazy Sunnis want to contract out what is their fight to the USA…as if they are being kept by the US as they inundate the world with Wahhabism. Iran needs to be stopped now so, Saidis, brush the dust off your billions in military equipment and take out the Russian-Hezbollah-Iran threat now. At the same time de-toxify and destroy your propaganda war against the West and Israel.

      They’re actually doing exactly that in Yemen,
      If you look at the ME like a chess board, Sunni Rebels were doing OK in Syria, before Iranian efforts to fragment larger Sunni efforts made them divert their attention to Yemen. Iran is exceptionally good at playing the long game. They created a strategic threat closer to home for the heart of the Sunni block, SA couldn’t ignore the growing threat that was manifesting on their southern border.
      Sunni block was simply not capable of fighting a 2 front war, Iran was well aware of that, they invested minimally and forced Sunni’s to take their eyes off the prize, they also enlisted Russian help and put maximum effort into the Syrian campaign.
      In the big picture version of events, Iran is well and truly ahead of the Sunni’s. America is a blundering giant, and due to its changing political landscape (a function of democracy really) its behaving like a schizophrenic giant blunderer right now, so its not the best friend to have in the Sunni context, besides being answerable to some measure of home resentment.
      Conversely, Russia has zero qualms about committing many atrocities to achieve its goals, is answerable to no one, and in a ME context, is a better friend to have.
      Shiite are winning, Sunni’s are losing. Big picture view point.

        @Hates propaganda The Last Time Communists Fought with Muslims was in Afghanistan and that did not go well for Russians after 10 years, and later neither for the Taliban.

        Iranian Shiia Scholars Sprinkles of Islamic Holy Water is just a Not A Great Mix with Atheists Communists looking fro more Oil. The Russians are right to bring Iranians to fight and die and Syria as well as Finance the Russians for being there.

        America goes into Debt but it Bankrupted the Russians in the 1990s, and Iran has Bankrupted themselves since 1979!

        Islam’s Big Brother Sunni’s will Survive and Thrive while Little Brother Shiia will Run, Hide, and Pretend they can Win?

        A Blundering American on his Worst Day is Far better than Drunken Russians and Iranian Islamic False Prophets on their Best Day, which is usually at their Wake!

          The disciples of R. Jose b. Kisma asked him, ‘When will the Messiah come?’

          …When he lay dying, he said to them, ‘Place my coffin deep for there is not one palm-tree in Babylon to which a Persian horse will not be tethered, nor one coffin in Palestine out of which a Median horse will not eat straw.’

      Mecca is Islam and is based and Blessed in Saudi Arabia and the vast Majority are Sunni not Tehran, Iraq, and Damascus. Judaism, Christianity and Islam have Orthodoxy Elements along with other Sects that include Evolutionary Religious Aspects that keep evolving just as Men and Women have been doing since coming out of Caves.

      The Shiia has been a Minority and will always be a Minority and why Iran has to change seeking going back to the Dark Ages as the Middle East is leaving the Middle Ages. The Ayatollahs, Mullahs, and Clerics lack vision, foresight, and not only is the Middle East weary of it, so are their own People.

      The Current Iranian Government is based on Yesterday and cannot survive the New Today and Tomorrows. Russia as well. Cavemen no longer Rule the Earth and Tunnel Thinking is not a sign of Wisdom.

    Funny,no one could bring themselves to address the wildcard.
    With Mr.Trump in the lead, no one can be certain which side the coin will land. His Russia/Putin infatuation, subjugation by and fascination of will likely outweigh any formerly unquestioned loyalty to Americas main ME ally in Israel or overall American self interest in the region and elsewhere. He is out to break it all and having great success.
    Mr. Trump is a disgrace and Israel better hope that America comes through standing up for Israeli and Jordanian borders and sovereignty and against the slow roll of a Putin sponsored Shiite saturation of the area. Israel is right to take it on directly and with haste.
    And not trust Mr. Putin or Trump.

    What the article makes clear is that Syria is a vassal State, it no longer exists as a real Nation. Russia suggests Iran is compelled for its own defense to make sure a failed state or worse a hostile state does not threaten it. Iran goes to Israel, lsrael goes to Iran or they meet in the middle. For peace Syria must be put back together and made a viable State again. Russia has made Syria a thorn in the paw of the lion. It wants security on its own borders. All the other players are pawns in a larger game. Russia can let the egg break, weak leadership in Washington allowed that to happen. Trump is calling their play saying he doesn’t care what happens. He can’t let Israel go and Russia knows it so we can expect some assurances for Russian security and years more of Russian collusion farce.

    We cannot continue to take this excitement on daily basis. Why doesn’t Iran unite with other Arab nations and invade Israel and settle this matter for once and for all? The whole world will be a much more peaceful place. In the whole middle of east all people will in one voice recite their prayers and live in peace and harmony. The light of Islam will be all pervasive in the entire Middle East as promised to us by our beloved Prophet PBUH.

    The statement by Russia is ambiguous, since they may be trying to convince Iran that it is no Irsn’s interest to get bogged down in Syria and spark a war with Israel. It is diplomatic gibberish.Amyway, what the say never had much bearing on what they do.

      The Middle East is transforming into Regional Nations and embracing New Ideologies that will support Middle Eastern College of Corporations determined by immutable bylaws of business. The Current Turmoil in the Middle East is due to the onslaught of Speedy Technological making the Mideast Region one Vast Holistic System of Systems that are Interwoven, Interacting, Multinational Dominion of Petrol-Dollars, Electro-Euros, Renminbi, Rubles, Pounds and Shekels soon to become one Technological Traceable International System of Currency determining the Totality of Life on this Planet.

      The Middle East is undergoing changes and why Iran’s Regime won’t last just like others that have come and gone until the Governments that are broken can help their own People be the Instruments of enjoying Wealth, Health, and no longer have to live in Stealth.

      It will take time, but eventually the world region by regions will become One Vast and Ecumenical Nations of Individual Businesses and Companies for whom all people will work to serve a common profit in which all families will hold stock to supply all necessities provided, including all anxieties tranquilized and through sports and entertainment all boredom amused.

      The World is moving at Break Speed Changes and this is obvious as many here can post what they think, exchange ideas, and no longer dependent on one source of Media. Change is hard to accept and resistance is a natural part of it, but it won’t stop.

        @ Ginger…I enjoy reading your comments, and I agree with most, but you come across as an algorithmic intel that speaks via electronic comments. Are you a living, breathing, eating, and drinking person?

        Technology is making the world change fast, but it is how the world spins. I think Israel should take back their ancient borders up to the Euphrates Deir ez-Zor area. They can make this their Samaria province and Israel can be their Judaea province. Then they can take in refugees who are willing to assimilate and put them to work building new settlements and business.

        The pink elephant in the room is Turkey. I see then making the same mistakes as the Iranian regime, but they actually have a military that can do damage.

          @JP Fellow Posters…………….Thank you for the compliment, but I am a person and I do have a bad case of Dyslexia. When posting on Social Media, I make many mistakes since I do not always Check and Recheck my Grammar, Spellings, and Syntax. I have had to struggle with this all my Life and did not even know it until I was in my 40s. I can convey my thoughts quite well but it takes about 4 to 5 Rewrites. I do not have that kind of time just for a blog and I apologize.

          I post here to learn from Debka and those that can educate me by telling me where I am wrong. I Thank other Posters that do it, by proving it. The Knowledgeable Professor did educate me and I Thanked Him. He made me look up many things and he made great points. I counter them when I can but I truly appreciate making me look up and learn things.

          At the same time, I do not care much for Hateful One Liners, Personal Attacks, but I Accept them, and ignore them, since the Middle East is both the Cradle of Civilization. The Center for Three Religions that I do Admire, Ancient Innovations, Inventors of 1 of 3 Super Foods in Wheat into Flour, Oldest City on Earth in Damascus, the Syrian Alphabet Spread by Phoenicians and adopted by Greeks adding 6 more Letters, and so many more Wonderful People, Foods, Inventions, and Values.

          These Cultural disputes also cause Huge Disagreements, Tribal Family Blood Feuds, and Victims of Conquests by various Conquerors both Neighbors and Outsiders….Therefore, no wonder Posters can get Emotional Angry at times, and that includes me.

          I am for a Independence and Interdependent United Middle East of All Nations, Religions, and with People that once you meet them, you enjoy getting to know them. I truly believe in my Heart that is why G-d chose the Middle East to be the place of Teaching Mankind how to Survive by turning Strangers into families, friends, and Exchanging many things that will Enrich everyone.

          Debka is a great place for all to come and be educated by arguments, teaching, exchanging, and questioning Israel Leadership. I have so much to learn from others in the Autumn of my Life. But I am not a computer algorithm!

            @ Ginger….well said. I just wanted to know if I am speaking to a real person. Thanks for replying. Many times I have to wonder if I am speaking to a real person, especially when they seem to have so much info.

            I too appreciate the cradle of civilization. My family comes from Fayiim, Egypt in the ancient past, but I think it probably originated from one of the 12 tribes. I would like to see the world use the civil society model of that the founders of America used, but sadly I do not see it happening much. It just seems like there is always someone that wants to recess back to dog eat dog, rather than conduct commerce and prosper together.

      Don’t underestimate what a totalitarian (Iranian) government can do in order to avoid its fall. So far Iranian government has been attempting to unite its people by fighting conventional wars (Iraq, Yemen, Syria). When pushed to the brink of loosing power Iran’s mullahs may escalate to choosing the Samson option i.e. nuke Israel and/or Saudi Arabia. It is true that USSR had backed out from the Cuban crisis. Khrushchev however didn’t really believe in the Communist doctrine, he was Stalin’s clown who made a career by destroying his bosses reputation after Stalin’s death. The mullahs may honestly believe in their interpretation of Islam and the afterlife they’ll gain by destroying the infidel. The mullah’s displaced faith may destroy the entire ME.

      @JP……Agree with you and don’t forget when famine and thirst hit Jacob’s 11 Sons (Minus Joseph Sold Into Slavery Without Jacob Knowing), it was Egypt as Govern by Pharaoh from Arabia that appointed Joseph to Administer the Cradle of Civilization.

      Pharaoh gave Joseph a position of power in Egypt because Joseph had correctly interpreted Pharaoh’s dreams. God gave Joseph the ability to interpret the king’s dreams and the wisdom to recommend a course of action. Joseph’s proposal “seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his officials. So Pharaoh asked them, “Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom is the spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, ‘Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you. You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you’” (Genesis 41:37–40). Pharaoh believed that Joseph had a spiritual power that would benefit his country. Spiritual powers were taken very seriously in Egypt during this time, and Pharaoh promptly promoted Joseph to be his second-in-command. Interestingly, this is the third time in the Genesis account that Joseph’s spiritual life is appealing to non-believers. and even after Jacob Died, Joseph did not seek Revenge against the Brothers that sold him into Slavery and Lied to Jacob.

      G-d awarded Joseph (Name Means “He Shall Add Contribute”) through Jacob, Joseph’s father, by adopting Joseph’s two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim, to share in Jacob’s inheritance equally with Jacob’s own sons (Genesis 48:5). He is counted as the father of the Israelite Tribe of Manasseh, one of the twelve Israelite tribes. Jacob also blessed Ephraim over his older brother (Genesis 48:20).

      This is a Great Example of what I love about all Middle Easterner’s of different Nations and Cultures that continue to show the world how they can all come together, if we only choose the Lord’s words through Abraham. Until all of us choose to listen to the Wise Words of Abraham within the Torah, Bible and Quran instead of Holy Men Claiming they are Saving Men, Women and Children but instead are Living in riches while sending Persians and Middle East Sons and Daughters to Proxy Wars from Oil Revenues belonging to the People of Iran that grow thirsty everyday. There was a reason why Greeks, Romans, Ottomans, and Imperialists of Europe sought to conqueror the Middle East is because the Great Civilizations of Persia, Egypt, and Arabia. Well, all along Israel got along with Persians, Egyptians, and Arabians way before the Greeks, Romans, Crusaders and few Middle East Nations and People enjoyed being under the Turkish Boots and did not care for the French and English that replaced them after WWI.

      In regards to your thoughts I might be a Robot, I explain why I am not, but Robots are coming in ways to Fight Brave New Wars Way Better than any Suicide Fanatic Proxy Fighters….This is where America, Israel, have Great Advantages over any Nation in the Mideast, and including Russia and China.

      I hope you post more on Debka Subjects and i welcome anything that educates all of us and not afraid to say I am wrong and thank the Posters that changes my opinions.

    Israel and Syria must make a peace treaty along the lines of the successful peace treaty between Israel and Egypt. Each countries must recognize each others sovereignty which includes return of the illegally occupied Syrian Golan Heights. Therefore, Israel leaves Syrian Golan Heights and Iran leaves Syria.
