Subterfuge At It's Best

Reader comment on item: The US-Israel Honeymoon May Not Last

Submitted by Barry Black (United States), Feb 7, 2018 at 10:55

No doubt Israel will have to pay a price for Trump's Jerusalem announcement. Abbas knows this so he just puts that card in his back pocket while keeping up the anti-Israel/Semitic rhetoric. We all know the war potential with southern Lebanon essentially a missile depot---one wrong move and bingo! The key is now Russia/Putin and how the Iranian build-up in Syria is handled. The tricky part of a ME war is how to effectively blame the other side for starting it.
