Proof of Israel's desire to dominate/occupy Lebanon, Syria etc exists in "A Clean Break....." and other clearly stated Policy Papers drawn up by JINSA & AIPAC.

Zion ist Carnage can only be stopped with Russian involvement an an Equitable Mid East Policy enforcing ALL U.N. Resolutions; esp. #181, #242 & #338.

Zioni st Lobbies dominate U.S. Policy makers so it's up to Russia to provide DEFENSIVE arms to Hezbollah to repel future Zionist Land Grabs.

The real Syrian people just want their Country back, seems revolution came from afar not homegrown?

I don't trust Tariq Ali. He is very careful no to criticize Israeli air strikes, and justifies them.

Iran should conduct its business & not succumb to provocations. Don't take the bait! Same with Syria
