The attack was perhaps the biggest since the 1967 Six Day War. “Is it a possible prelude to a US/Israeli/Turkish full-scale war on Assad?” US journalist Stephen Lendman speculated in his article for the website Global Research.
Israel has multiple objectives such as eradicating Syria as a rival regional state, destroying the country for easier control, blocking the Iran nuclear deal and ultimately replacing Islamic State’s sovereignty with pro-Western governance, Lendman wrote.
As the journalist pointed out, Iran and Syria didn’t attack Israeli territory – not now or earlier. He also mentioned that the countries will not do so except in self-defense.
But to make matters tenser, US President Barack Obama told congressional Democrats he’ll continue economic pressure on Iran, maintain the military option, and increase missile defense and other aid for Israel if the nuclear deal is approved next month.
As the time for foreign investors to do business with Iran is ripe, Israel is going out of the way to keep Iran isolated.
German vice chancellor and energy and economics minister Sigmar Gabriel visited Tehran – pledging to restore economic ties. He led a delegation of 60 German corporations eager to gain entry to Iran’s market.
Lendman stressed that Israel is going to come up with more baseless accusations to isolate Iran. Netanyahu is trying everything possible to block the nuclear deal, as well as maintain pressure against Western investment and trade.
