english.ruvr.ru – Israel PM tells ministers to stay silent on Syria
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told his ministers to keep silent about Syria to avoid the impression Israel is pushing the international community into armed intervention, army radio said Sunday.
Netanyahu gave the instructions after Deputy Foreign Minister Zeev Elkin suggested the international community might react militarily to ”take control of the Syrian chemical weapons arsenal”.
The radio station reported Netanyahu sought to avoid that Elkin’s words be seen as an Israeli attempt to push the United States into launching a military operation in Syria.
The political commentator on military radio said that ”US hesitancy over the Syrian issue in the last few days, however, is causing a great deal of worry in Israel”.
almanar.com.lb – Israeli Leaders Push US into another Pro-Israel War in Syria
Tel Aviv is trying to pave the way for a US-led foreign intervention in Syria by accusing Damascus of using chemical weapons. This is the same excuse, the weapons of mass destruction, that pro-Israeli neocon circles used in 2003 to launch the Iraq war. Later, this claim proved to be a lie as many experts from all over the world had warned in advance. For its part, Syria denied that it had used chemical weapons. Syrian Information Minister was quoted as saying on 24 April that his country would not use this kind of weapons even in the event of war with its worst enemy, Israel.
On 15 April, head of Israel´s Military Intelligence and Former Head of the Institute for National Security, General Amos Yadlin, called for taking steps to break the axis of resistance -which consists of Iran, Hezbollah, and Syria- by weakening Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and ending his rule as soon as possible. The Channel 2 of the Israeli TV further quoted Yadlin as saying that “whoever that is not aware that the fall of Assad is a positive development for Israel, would be incapable of reading the situation correctly.”

Christof Lehmann – Unequivocal Russian Support of Syria against Foreign Military and Political Aggression
In an article, published on nsnbc international on 27 April, it transpired, that Turkish, that is NATO troops are said to be directly involved in combat operations against the Syrian military. The Turkish troops, who are fighting alongside western backed al-Nusrah, that is al-Qaeda mercenaries, constitute a gross violation of international law, a gross violation of the Geneva Agreement, and a criminal act of war by Turkey and NATO.
Over the recent days, both the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and RussiaÂÂÂÂ´s President Vladimir Putin have repeatedly stated, that it is unacceptable that the latest claims of evidence about the Syrian governments use of chemical weapons should be used as a pretext for military aggression against Syria. In almost unprecedented use of strong language, the words lies and fake evidence were used with regard to Iraq, where manufactured claims about WMDs were used as a pretext for an illegal war against Iraq ten years ago, from which the country still has not recovered.
Tony Cartalucci – NYT: ”Nowhere in Rebel-Controlled Syria is There a Secular Fighting Force to Speak Of”, Time to end Western support for terrorists in Syria
Revealed is a conspiracy so insidious, so outrageous, and a web of lies so tangled, that Western governments perhaps count on their populations to disbelieve their tax money is being used to intentionally fund and arm savage terrorism while purposefully fueling a sectarian bloodbath whose death toll is sounded daily by the very people driving it up to astronomical heights. The cards are down – the US has been exposed as openly funding, arming, and supplying Al Qaeda in Syria for two years and in turn, is directly responsible for the death, atrocities, and humanitarian disasters within and along Syria’s borders that have resulted.
Chemical Weapons Inspection in Syria stalled: UN Team Takes Orders from Washington, “Cannot be Trusted”
In all their “absurdity and deceitfulness,” al-Zouabi explained, such statements by some Western governments are made in pursuit of basic goals.
“Their aim is, first, to cover those who are really behind use of chemical weapons in Khan al-Assal, and secondly, to repeat Iraq’s scenario, to pave the way for other investigation inspections. To provide, based on their results, maps, photos of rockets and other fabricated materials to the UN, which as we know, opened the way to the occupation of Iraq.”
I den grupp som skulle undersöka spår efter kemiska vapen som FN ville skicka in i Syrien för några veckor sen ingick inte några experter från Ryssland och Kina!!
Experts from Russia and China however were not included in the team to ensure it wasn’t biased, according to the United Nations.
At the time Russian EU envoy Vitaly Churkin criticized “this kind of logic,” saying in that case he “would recommend excluding all NATO countries too.”
”Väst måste sluta stödja terrorism i Syrien”, Agnes Mariam om konflikten, kvinnoförtrycket och freden
– Västländer uppmuntrar och stödjer terrorism i Syrien. Jag menar att väst har ett ansvar för varje enskild civil som dödas i Syrien. Det säger Agnes Mariam, känd företrädare för katolska kyrkan i Syrien. Hon anklagar omvärlden för att sabotera en politisk lösning av den tragiska konflikten.
– Den bild världsmedia ger är inte sann. Vad som pågår är inte en folklig revolution utan en invasion av Syrien stödd utifrån och med deltagande av terrorister från fler än 30 länder. De skyddar inte civila utan terroriserar dem, driver människor på flykt, plundrar, förstör, bränner ner.
– Se på vad de gjort, fortsätter Agnes Mariam. Rebellerna har förstört elkraftverk, vattenreningsanläggningar, spannmålslager och historiska och kulturella platser. I Aleppo har de monterat ned och fraktat 1400 fabriker till Turkiet, vilket gjort 40.000 arbetslösa. Upproret har inte fört med sig något positivt.
Sharmine Narwani – Chemical Weapons Charade in Syria
For the uninitiated, “varying degrees of confidence” can mean anything from “no confidence whatsoever” to “the Israelis told us” – which, translated, also means “no confidence whatsoever.”
Too cavalier? I don’t think so. The White House introduced another important caveat in its detailed briefing on Thursday:
“This assessment is based in part on physiological samples. Our standard of evidence must build on these intelligence assessments as we seek to establish credible and corroborated facts. For example the chain of custody is not clear so we cannot confirm how the exposure occurred and under what conditions.”
“The chain of custody is not clear.” That is the single most important phrase in this whole exercise. It is the only phrase that journalists need consider – everything else is conjecture of WMDs-in-Iraq proportions.
I asked a State Department spokesperson the following: “Does it mean you don’t know who has had access to the sample before it reached you? Or that the sample has not been contaminated along the way?”
He responded: “It could mean both.”
At this point, almost everything being discussed in relation to chemical weapons inside Syria is conjecture – and to be honest – highly suspect.
Christof Lehmann – Turkey likely to have used Chemical Weapons in Syria
The renewed diplomatic raw about the use of chemical weapons in Syria, with bellicose threats from the US- Administration, has taken a surprising turn, as it transpires, that the most likely perpetrator are Turkish military officers in Syria.Turkish troops and pilots have over the last week been involved in pitched battles, alongside al-Nusra terrorist or mercenary corps, in the attempt to secure the Ming airfield near Aleppo, leading to suspicions that the anti-Syrian alliance is preparing the political and military pretext for yet another Iraq or Libya – style “intervention”.

Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich – The Fueling of Unrest in Syria, Israel’s Territorial Ambitions
.. it is important to change the accepted narrative about Syrian uprisings. Given the decades lone demonization of Iran, it may be more palatable to associate the fueling of unrest in Syria point to a ‘weaker’ Iran, but let there be no mistake – Syria today is in turmoil in order to promote Israel’s grand strategy – even as the perpetrator – Israel, plays the victim and warns of chemical weapons use by Assad’s regime, demanding intervention. “Evil requires the sanction of the victim.” Ayn Rand.
