U.S. Intervention Into Syrian Civil War and Possible Unintended Consequences...

Is part of the President's considerations in contemplating U.S. military intervention into the Syrian civil war the impact and possible consequences to our only true ally in the region, Israel? I would hope so, and perhaps he has. But given the history of reciprocal loyalty between our two nations it is reasonable to think any U.S. air strikes may have unintended consequences that would negatively impact our our ally. And result in loss of life in Israel as a result.


Israel is setting up its Iron Dome missile defense system outside of Jerusalem as violence continues in neighboring Syria.

According to an Agence France Presse (AFP) report, the Israeli military is deploying a battery of the missile shield west of the city, signaling concern about threats from a possible Syrian attack

The Israeli newspaper Haaretz quotes a military official who said that the likelihood is low that the country would be attacked by Syrian rockets, however "we have a clear responsibility to prepare for any scenario in order to protect our citizens."

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a cabinet meeting on Sunday that his nation was “an island of tranquility” amid “the storm raging around us,” according to AFP. He did not mention Syria specifically.

The battery near Jerusalem is not the first to be deployed in recent months. One was moved into position near Tel Aviv last month, and a few other systems have been put in place around the country. Many of the batteries have been set up in cities closer to the border with Syria, which runs along Israel’s north.

Haaretz reported that the Israeli Defense Forces are considering deploying another battery in northern Israel. {Read More}
