Syria adopting Hamas and Hezbullah war tactics

Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallem has issued a threat that in the next war between his country and Israel, Israeli cities will be targeted. Of course, that implies that like Hamas and Hezbullah, Syria will target Israeli civilians.
The Syrian minister's comments show the extent to which Damascus has adopted a terrorist modus operandi that is no different from that of Hezbollah or Hamas. Even though, unlike those groups, it has still not moved its rocket launchers into population centers whose residents are meant to serve as human shields, Israel is obliged to immediately issue a warning, in every important venue in the world, that Syria is acting in contravention of the laws of war. The kind of threat Syria issued requires a response that will ensure that the enemy will continue being deterred from carrying it out. Israel must also counter the ethical and legal implications of the Syrian threat.
I'm sure that warning will ensure that there is a Goldstone Commission appointed to investigate the Syrians when the war ends.

I have a post up showing that some of us support what Israel does to ensure the survival of a rather unthanking west.

I agree. I think of this war as being a worldwide conflict against Islamic terrorism and nationalism.
And Israel is in the front line.

I just wish that the United States government was as supportive of Israel as it should be.
