Iran Turning Its Sights on Israel – L. Todd Wood
We’ve predicted for some time that once the fight between pro-Assad Shia elements (Iran/Hizbullah) and Sunni Islamists in the Middle East wound down, Iran and its proxies would turn their attention towards Israel to achieve their longstanding dream of wiping the Jewish state off the map. Israel has been attempting to slow the process by preemptively destroying targets inside Syria which threaten its security.
If you’ve looked at a map of the Middle East, it is painfully obvious that Israel really is not defensible from a geographic standpoint. Once military forces with dangerous capabilities are in place along its borders, it’s too late. That is why the “land for peace” narrative is so dangerous, as it really is an agenda to make Israel impossible to protect militarily. (Washington Times)
