The dirty little not-so-secret behind President Obama’s much-lobbied-for, illegal and strategically incompetent war against Syria is that it’s not about Syria at all. It’s about Iran-and Israel. And it has been from the start.

By “the start,” I mean 2011, when the Obama administration gradually became convinced that it could deal Iran a mortal blow by toppling President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, a secular, Baathist strongman who is, despite all, an ally of Iran’s. Since then, taking Iran down a peg has been the driving force behind Obama’s Syria policy.

  1. This Dreyfus duntz has a real hatred for Jews. I’ve never heard of him, but reading his artticle makes it clear. How much can this clown spin.
    Obama has Israels interests in mind????
    Obama is seeking to stop Iran????
    Iran and Russia are upset with Syria and Assad for this murder????? Face it, they’re hi-fiving him on a “job well done”.
    Iran is ready for real negotiations????
    Also, this clown mentions Irans upcomming UN speech. He’s insinuating that the dumb, stupid and hate filled speech that is sure to come, will be “our” fault. What a dunce!

  2. All you need to read to know that this Dreyfuss is an anti-Semite is the words “Israel lobby” at the end.

    When anyone uses that term, you know you’re talking about a true sonei Yisrael.
