An Iranian army base in Syria? This will not go over so well with Israel – and for good reason.
The Syrian heights are dangerously close to the Israeli Golan Heights ridge.
The Iranian threat is a fulfillment of their prophesies – an apocalyptic and messianic step towards conquering Jerusalem and destroying the State of Israel.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been crystal clear that it will not tolerate an Iranian Army on their border with Syria.
Will Israel hit this base with a pre-emptive strike?
It is too early to tell, but even before Prime Minister Netanyahu, Prime Minister Olmert ordered an attack deep within Syria when a chemical weapons facility was found to be preparing for an attack on Israel.
