Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has recently declared that Israel lost the Syria war. He said: “From our perspective, the situation is returning to how it was before the civil war, meaning there is a real address, someone responsible, and central rule.”
We are told that “Syrian President Bashar Assad has sought to restore central rule in several southwestern areas of the country in recent weeks, with a particular focus on reclaiming Golan Heights — an area of strategic and political significance for both Damascus and Jerusalem.”
The Israeli regime is obviously not really happy about this. Israel officials must have been mad and sad when they heard that they are not going to have their cake and eat it too in Syria. This shows that Benjamin Netanyahu failed miserably and pathetically. He tried hard. He fought relentlessly. He gave his best. He shouted, screamed, and yelled at politicians who did not “understand” that Assad had to go. Back in 2016, Liberman himself was running around like a buffalo saying that Assad is a “butcher” who “should be removed from power.”
But Assad thrived and survived. Israeli forces made several illegal attacks in Syria. They accused Assad of using chemical weapons. They accused Assad of killing his own people and “innocent babies.” They conned US politicians to say weird and unfathomable things. Much of the media perpetually declared that Assad was entirely responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent lives in the region.
All those diabolical activities failed because we are living in an age where people cannot be fooled all the time anymore. Much of the alternative media did a fairly decent job on reporting what was going on in Syria. VT was on the frontline exposing the war machine and the Khazarian Mafia behind the war. The Zionist emperor obviously had no clothes, and now Netanyahu seems to concede defeat. He has recently said:
“We haven’t had a problem with the Assad regime, for 40 years not a single bullet was fired on the Golan Heights. I have set a clear policy that we do not intervene and we have not intervened. This has not changed.
“What has troubled us is ISIS and Hezbollah and this has not changed. The heart of the matter is preserving our freedom of action against anyone who acts against us. Second, the removal of the Iranians from Syrian territory.”
What in the world is this man talking about here? Wasn’t Bibi laughing and dancing just a few months ago when he saw that his finest puppet—Donald Trump—was bombing Syria because Assad allegedly “used” chemical weapons? The Israeli regime hasn’t had a problem with Assad? Didn’t Netanyahu ridiculously declared that by bombing Syria, Israel was essentially stopping Syrian refugees fleeing to Europe? Who is he fooling this time? Israeli ambassador to the US Michael Oren said way back in 2013:
“The initial message about the Syrian issue was that we always wanted [President] Bashar Assad to go, we always preferred the bad guys who weren’t backed by Iran to the bad guys who were backed by Iran.”
But what about the rebels/terrorists that the Israelis were supporting in order to get rid of Assad? Well, Oren had an answer again:
“We understand that they are pretty bad guys. Still, the greatest danger to Israel is by the strategic arc that extends from Tehran, to Damascus to Beirut. And we saw the Assad regime as the keystone in that arc. That is a position we had well before the outbreak of hostilities in Syria. With the outbreak of hostilities we continued to want Assad to go.”
Can the mad man in Tel Aviv now tell us that Israel had no problem with Assad? Or is he actually losing his mojo?
