Israel’s Chief of Staff Major General Bennie Gantz, whilst appearing before the Knesset’s Security and Foreign Affairs Committee, has today informed a million and a half Syrian Alawis that Israel is preparing to take them into the Golan Heights if and when Bashar Assad’s regime will collapse.
I am repeating this sentence in case anyone has just sunk into a coma, went to prepare a cup of coffee or was just gazing at the TV to see who else is hopping into the Israeli political swamp. Israel’s Chief of Staff Major General Bennie Gantz, whilst appearing before the Knesset’s Security and Foreign Affairs Committee, has today informed a million and a half Syrian Alawis that Israel is preparing to take them into the Golan Heights if and when Bashar Assad’s regime will collapse.
Even in the Israel, the State of mayhem and It’llBeAllright (Yhie’pSeder), it is inconceivable that the most senior commander of the Israeli Army would have said these things had they not been agreed by the Defence Minister and the Prime Minister. The question arises – has someone lost their mind there? Israel is already up to its neck with the problem of illegal African-Muslim infiltrators and job-seekers entering it in their thousands every month through its free-for-all southern border, and intends to invest many millions in unnecessary prison facilities where infiltrators will be held for three years at the Israeli taxpayer’s expense, instead of investing them in several secure ships that will constantly sail the Eilat- Mombasa route and will return these infiltrators to their countries immediately, as they arrive. All Israel needs now are hundreds of thousands of Alawi refugees whose one-way entry into the Golan Heights is Bashar Assad’s wet dream. The Alawis, who ruled Syria for nearly fifty years, had during this time done everything they could to bring about the destruction of the state of Israel – those who think that opening the border gates to them will turn them into great lovers of Zion need their head examined.
Yes, Israel could and should allow the Red Cross and other international organisations to transport food and other humanitarian aid through the Golan Height’s border passes to Syrian refugees of war – refugees that will be accommodated in refugee camps inside Syria and that will be secured by an international force stationed on Syrian soil. The Chief of Staff and those silently agreeing with his ideas will do best to stop releasing these ill-considered and irresponsible ideas to the media.
