Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has once again threatened military intervention in Syria’s ongoing Civil War, saying that they might need such involvement to prevent arms from falling into the hands of terrorists.
Netanyahu cited the concerns that al-Qaeda linked groups in the Syrian rebellion could seize the Syrian government’s chemical weapons and anti-aircraft missiles if the Assad government collapses.
The concerns of al-Qaeda benefiting from the regime change seem fairly well-founded, since the NATO military intervention in Libya led to materially the same thing, with arms from the Gadhafi government still fueling wars across Africa, as well as the ongoing Syrian war.
Yet Israel’s military would be a horribly destabilizing influence in Syria, with both Assad forces and rebels accusing Israel of secretly backing the other, and protracted hostilities between the two nations meaning any time Israel moves against one of the factions they experience increased popularity domestically.

Look: Hillary Clinton and her nonsense about regime change in Syria.., supporting terrorism to do the job, the support that these "rebels" gets from Saudi and other tyrants make one wonder who is who in this unjust and inhuman act. al Qaeda so as other terrorists are product of USA from the day when US started dealing with Wahhabis regarding Afghanistan.., Israel by itself is an apartheid regime have used phosphor bombs and other chemicals killing Palestinians.., this regime is supported by USA so is Saudis and Qatari as the tyrants of middle east supported by EU and US governments.., all that brings us to where we are.., a time that have shown no one is the winner and no one is going to gain anything regarding Syrian war but those whom are sicking for more distractions.
Bibi's "Clean Break Plan" developed by Richard Perle, Douglas Feith and friends back in the pre GWB era called for the destruction of Syria, along with Iraq and eventually Iran. So his threats are not new ones.
It began with the "its worth killing 500,000 Iraqi children to bring about regime change in Baghdad" [ so said Madeleine Allbright on tv] the invasion and killing of Mr. Hussein; spending over $ 4 trillion dollars there and in Afghanistan and over a decade later more deaths and destruction. So now its Syria's turn just to keep Mr. Nethanyahu and friends happy.
We humans[?] are somethin else.
If only the "world community" would get together and put this cancerous barking dog down once and for all.
So Israel is going to intervene in Syria- on what side? They're going to side with hard-line Islamists to defeat Assad so Syria can become…… a hard-line Islamic nation, right next door to Israel? Or are they going to side with Assad to defeat the rebels with the result that….. the rebel forces swear vengeance upon Israel and undertake a massive campaign against that nation?
Sorry, it just looks like a lose/lose situation all around for the Israelis if they get themselves caught up in the Syrian mess.
Then again, if they can show that IDF forces were attacked by ANY pro-Iranian forces (and you just know they will) Israel could use that as a pretext for renewed calls for war on Tehran.
