Israel has played an increasingly provocative role in the destructive conflict unfolding within and along Syria’s borders since 2011. To many observers, it appears Israeli policy borders between opportunistic and unilateral aggression. In reality, Israel’s role in the Syrian conflict fits a much larger and long-term pattern with Anglo-American plans not only for Syria but for the entire region.
A more recent row between Israel and Syria was the reported incursion of Israeli warplanes into Syrian airspace, including attacks near the eastern Syrian city of Palmyra. Palmyra hosts an ongoing battle between Syrian forces and the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS) terrorist organization. Israeli airstrikes against Syrian forces – then – would have facilitated ISIS operations in the region.
ISRAEL IS A STATE SPONSOR OF TERROR, NOT A CHAMPION AGAINST IT
Israel has existed as a nation-sized, de facto forward operating base for Anglo-American interests since its creation in the 20th century. It has pursued aggressive regional policies that have intentionally pitted itself against its neighbors as a means of maintaining a Western foothold and point of leverage in North Africa and the Middle East for decades.
Ongoing conflicts between Israel and Palestine are fueled by an orchestrated strategy of tension between a manipulated Israeli population and controlled opposition – Hamas – politically backed, armed, and funded by Israel’s own regional collaborators including Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
From its very inception, Israel has been a rogue nation, driven by its own mythology of achieving its territorial claims to all the lands between the Nile and the Euphrates (Biblical Israel)
Let's look at a map, to see what those claims actually entail;
As you can see, this alleged "promised land" includes bits of Iraq; Egypt; Syria; Saudi Arabia, Jordan; and Lebanon.
The reason that the Israeli government refuses to define its borders is that its religious right believes that those borders extend into these countries, the governments of which should just roll over and play dead, enabling the IDF to claim bits of these countries for "eretz Israel" (Greater Israel)
The problem for the Israeli government is that this rolling over and playing dead, to enable this annexation, just hasn't happened yet. And because of that, in the minds of those in the Knesset in Tel Aviv, that makes Syria a prime target for destabilization and regime change.
