Israeli officials told Walla News on Friday that Israel is highly pleased with President Biden’s decision to bomb Shia militia targets in eastern Syria.
Although the airstrikes hit an Iraqi militia, the attack is being framed as a move against Iran, and the officials compared Biden to President Obama, who they view as soft on Iran due to the 2015 nuclear deal.
“The Iranians didn’t realize that Biden is not Obama, and that if they will continue down this road of miscalculation they will eventually get hit,” one Israeli official told Walla.
According to a report from Axios, Israel was given advanced notice of the Syria airstrikes on Thursday morning. The notification took place during talks of the so-call “working group,” a forum the US and Israel are using to discuss Iran issues that is headed by each countries’ national security advisors.
Israel has been bombing Syria for years and frequently targets Shia militias that they always claim are linked to Iran. Last week, Israel bombed Damascus, Syria, killing nine people who were described as pro-government militia fighters.

Tine to bomb the illegal Israeli nuke factories at Dimona.
Trouble is they might shoot back.
End all US aid to Israel now!
Does Israel have a majority in the US Congress?
Over 40 Israeli citizens sit in Congress.
Dual citizen ship is allowed in Congress for Israeli’s other countries like Mexico are not allowed.
1) If there are 40 Israeli citizens, presumably you can name them and offer evidence that they’re Israeli citizens.
2) Dual citizenship is allowed in Congress for any country.
No I think you are wrong. Dual citizenship is allowed in Congress. I think this wrong — but not illegal.
I am however more bothered by the rights of people who have their careers spent lobbying for a foreign country — to be elected for any public office or hold government functions.
Once lobbyist always lobbyist.
“According to a report from Axios, Israel was given advanced notice of the Syria airstrikes on Thursday morning.”
While we gave Russia, what, 5 minutes? Brilliant.
Biden’s gift for Purim.
Biden is a Church goer and Israel claims God gave them exclusive rights to the lands not long ago referred to as Palestine. Now what if we have it wrong, what if there really is a God and God doesn’t approve of the way we have been behaving, killing and bombing and occupying waging wars etc. Don’t we wonder at least a little bit, does God approve of the way we are running things? How can we cry out to him if we are the cause
of all this violence and human suffering?
Odd that you should broach this topic from a theological perspective I think of often. As we learn just how immense the scale of the cosmos is, it is easy to see how hard it would be for any entity to keep track of all the bad behavior going on in a domain of only a few hundred million light years in size. And the concept of monotheism just doesn’t seem up to the job of keeping track.
We have oversimplified God, and it makes sense on a simple parish level, where complexities are not helpful, Oldest Orthodox theology describes god as force for good we can try to live by but perfection we cannot achieve. God is not a supreme being that has to keep track of us being naughty or nice. It is a force that shapes our lives, as we act be that towards fellow humans or toward nature.
Greeks described the phenomena in pre-Christian manner. Hubris and Nemesis — forces that are intertwined.
We should be our brother’s keeper, guardians of conscience, protectors of innocence. But we do not.
Hubris is flourishing all around us, we have accepted evil as “freedom”, and this force of Hubris is generating our own Nemesis.
We are light years away from 18th century poet Robert Burns hopes for
“people world over shall brothers be..”
Such thoughts are alien to us today.
Israel was given advanced notice of the Syria airstrikes on Thursday morning??
That sounds backwards, I think Blinken got the memo from his counter part in Israel as to targeting a couple days earlier.
And I was very pleased to hear of Iran’s retaliation against Israeli merchant ships… Now they have as idea how the crew of the Liberty felt!
>The MSM can’t say “Iraqi militias” it must say “Iran-backed militias,” and so they always do. That probably comes from the State Dept in its weekly memo to the six corporations that control ninety percent of “news” in the US.
>Israel likes Biden’s bombing of al Bukamal because Israel has been doing it regularly, including twice this year already on January 12 and February 11. Israel started its bombing of this important border crossing area when the crossing was re-opened over a year ago. So now the US is imitating Zionist behavior. . . .Biden has previously declared that he is a Zionist.
