Foxnews.com, ever the reliable mouth piece of Israel, is very concerned about what is happening in Syria. (You can read the story here). To all those that are concerned about the events in Syria and are confused as to which side is right or wrong, we would present this as evidence: Israel, Foxnews.com, John McCain and other neo-cons and conservatives are very frustrated and angry at the events in Syria. They are very concerned with the “human rights” of Syrians. When the bloodshed in Rawanda was occurring, during which over 800,000 were slaughtered in mere weeks, none of this uproar existed. Why the sudden concern for the people of Syria? And, if the concern is genuine, why the pressure on opposition members (including Moaz Al Khatib) not to negotiate a political solution to the unending violence? The answer is simple: Neither John McCain, nor Foxnews.com nor Israel give a damn about Syrians dying. As an Israeli official recently admitted, Israel doesn’t care what the Syrians do to each other.
The only reason Israel, Foxnews.com and John McCain care about Syria is because it is a place where American power and prestige and Israeli survival are on the line. America was once used to being a superpower that could do whatever it wanted whenever it wanted. The nineties were especially lovely, with everybody (but Iran) kowtowing to the powerful Americans. Well, those days are over. Every party must come to an end, and this imperialist part has ended. Syria is proof of the utter powerlessness of the U.S. to save its favorite step child: Israel. Israel knows that after Assad survives and consolidates himself, the end will be ever closer. No longer able to rely on military threats to survive, the Zionist state will be limited in its ability to oppress and terrify. And that was the only thing that enabled it to survive the oppression of Palestinians.
