Israel Angry With White House for Leaking Syrian Air Strike

White House official told CNN Thursday

Israeli officials are upset with the Obama administration for confirming an Israeli Air Force airstrike Wednesday that targeted weaponry set to be transferred to Hezbollah.

Israel had not claimed responsibility for the strike on the Syrian port city Latakia, but a White House official confirmed the incident with CNN Thursday, noting the target was “missiles and related equipment.” Israeli officials called the leak “scandalous” and “unthinkable,” according to Israel’s Channel 10 TV, and a military analyst characterized it as “unfathomable.”

Israel had been accused of raids on Syria earlier this year in January and  May.

What will the prideful President Putin do now to retaliate in the aftermath of  Israel bombing out all his sophisticated Antiaircraft Missiles and Batteries that he gave to Syria for self-defense along the Syrian coastline ?  Will President Putin order his five warships stationed in the east end of the Med Sea to attack the war factories in Haifa and Tel Aviv ?  Will Obama then ask permission from  the U.S. Senate to destroy those five Russian Federation warships in retaliation for their artillery bombardment of Haifa and Tel Aviv ?  Will the Mid-East thus escalate in tensions, which was the opposite intentions of Israel when they eliminated Syria's self-defense capability on Oct 31, 2013 ?

Unlike the useless hysterics so beloved by Israel's haters, so noisily presented on this platform, we prefer to do the required operation without claiming credits. It's the traditional spirit of "When you have to shoot, shoot, don't talk". You see, the Middle-East is really a cheap replay of the old Western standard: Nice people try to build a nation in the heart of wilderness; the lawless bad guys won't let them have a day without a gun fight; the pioneers overcome their continuous challenge with resolve not understood by outsiders; the bad guys start killing each other for some imagined reaches buried in the sand; the sheriff makes sure no bad guys have access to the Gatling gun, which can undo the fire power balance to the advantage of the wrong party, but otherwise he's quite useless. So, when the sheriff fails to execute on a promise to get rid of the top villain, a silent tough guy stands up to do it, without bothering to consult with the disapproving town elders, who are afraid of their own shadow. The only missing part, where's the fair lady who's supposed to ride with the hero towards the sunset?

In what world is it okay to shoot at someone and not take responsibility for it?

Even terrorists man-up. Don't shoot the messenger, Israel.

As Colin Powell might say, "You broke it, you bought it."

Let the racist, bigoted Iseali jews choke on it.  They did it, let them choke on taking the blame for once.

Really, where is your indignation when children are used as shield for terrorists and dictators? Where is your sense of horror when a school bus filled with children or a mall of innocents is assaulted by those who would proclaim to be righteous. Please...spare me your feeble attempts at appearing morally indignant.

Israel is a monster, it's the white non semitic jews that are the cause of all the wars, all the suffering, all the inhuman treatment of women, and all for their world domination scam to enslave all non jews, and that is falling apart before their very eyes. These non semitic jews have destroyed everything they touch because they serve evil, plain and simple. I am sick to death of these evil doers who do not build schools, drill wells for drinking water, educate, but instead spread famine, disease and war just to keep their paranoid, delusional worship of evil alive. The faster they are driven into the sea the better and that goes for all the other jews who do nothing to stop this evil. The Russians got it right, they drove the London Wall Street Banksters out and I fully support Putin for doing this. When you think what the Bolsheviks did to the beautiful Russian people it makes you sick and now they are doing the same to Japan, the US, the Palestinians and are set to start a global war because they are loosing their grip, so when the nukes fall on me I will welcome them because it will be good fighting the evil jews and I hope it ends this demonic race of people once and for all.

Americans: this is the type of monsters that you have been protecting. They don't care about the USA, they don't care about peace, they only care about their agenda, and if this agenda throws the young American soldiers into a war to protect this EVIL ENTITY, so be it and start counting your dead and maimed young soldiers.

It is absurd to think that anyone who matters could be in any doubt that Bibi ordered this airstrike. Sure, there are people who have never heard of Syria, or who know only that it's a town in the state of Virginia.  So yes, those people might be vaguely aware that a country named Israel exists, and they might not have guessed that Israel was responsible, but really, why do the "Israeli officials" bother with this charade of indignation?

While Islamic fundamentalist brainwashing may be a real threat to our complacent western way of life, Israel should be in the Court of Human Rights for SO many offenses in the past decades.

Israel deserves no support as a result and just for once I thank the Obama administration for something, namely not brushing acts of war under the carpet.

Racist is a word and practice born and bred by Islam. Apartheid is a written-in-stone tenet everywhere in the Muslim world. You live by it, you thrive by it and you kill by it. Newborns are bottle-fed the racism and discrimination the world of Islam cherishes so, starts there. From infancy, your children are force-fed the poison of annihilating the rest of humanity - whom you call infidels. You hate Jews and Christians and you discriminate against them everywhere. Ninety-eight percent of all conflagrations throughout the world involve Muslim elements who are out to destroy the rest.

@dsrobins   "Racist"?  Ever been to Israel?  White, brown and black Jews, Arabs and other minorities all with rights.  Israel is the only country that imported black people from Africa (Ethiopia) not to enslave, but free them.  Racism is a sin in Judaism, Jesus religion. 

The judenrein (from where all Jews were kicked out) Muslim Arab hereditary bloody dictatorship of Syria declared war on Israel, not the other way around and Israel has every right to defend.

@dsrobins There is nothing to take blame for. Israel is indignant because of American betrayal - not the first, and alas not the last. What to expect from B. Hussein O's officials, their allegiances are well known and not surprising.

@rotorhead1871 -- That is a strange fantasy, since Saudi Arabia is the source of the money that plants Sunni terrorists around the world.  The Saudi system also represses and terrorizes its own people.  The house of Saud is corrupt and as close to pure evil as any set of rulers on earth.  If so many US officials weren't on its payroll, it is the place we should have been attacking after 9/11.

@rotorhead1871 "Saudi ally"?  The medieval judenrein Muslim Arab kingdom of Saudi (a country named after the family that owns it) declared war on Israel, the only democratic and civilized in the region.  No ally, sorry.

Who "betrayed" whom?

The U.S. likely told Israel, "Stand down. We're trying to get this chemical issue resolved."

But after all these years of receiving U.S. aid, Israel actually believes it's capable of acting on its own, like Saddam Hussein once did.

Fine. But this isn't the 1980s anymore and the U.S. isn't going to run cover as it did when Hussein gassed the Kurds and then blamed Iran.

@ricardo_lion @efrustrated Denial of clean drinking water, basic medicines, education, theft of land from citizens... these are just a few of the well documented humanitarian offenses anybody who isn't a zionist is well aware of.

I'm not a muslim apologist, but as the country which claims to have the moral highground, Israel is more akin to an ammoral rabid dog, knowing it has a bigger dog which until now has always been waiting around a corner to back its bullying tactics up.

@ricardo_lion Furthermore, if Israel hadn't been the aggressor on SO many past occasions, it wouldn't have quite so many Jihadi groups now queuing up to wipe it out. 

But hey, go ahead, send a nuke over to Iran, it's what your leaders want to do. You think that's going to achieve peace? Don't even think about saying it's in my name.
