Netanyahu, Assad speak with Sarkozy

Sarkozy AssadTwo days after Netanyahu’s visit to Sarkozy, the French president met with Assad. It is unlikely that the shrewd French politician would make himself a middleman for the hopeless Israeli-Syrian peace talks, in which each party knows the price and both parties refuse to pay it.

Looking at Netanyahu’s very long meeting with Obama and a recent string of hostile American actions toward Iran, Israel appears to be preparing for an attack on Iran. Sarkozy therefore was no doubt there to convey to Assad a warning from Netanyahu to keep out of the Israeli-Iranian conflict.

Assad’s one thousand mid-range Scud missiles, some of which are equipped with chemical and biological warheads, cannot inflict critical damage on Israel, and Assad will not use his rocket arsenal to provoke Israeli retaliation.

The Israeli Home Front Command has scheduled distribution of gas masks for January, but that might be a deception to lead Iran to believe that Israel won’t act before then.
