This brazen request by the US government that would plunge besieged Israel into a regional war is nothing less than disgusting - but true to character. The US government has been for decades involved in the process of dismantling Israel through devious means. They call it "land for peace". Now they want to resort to war.
World Tribune reports that the United States government is pressuring Israel to attack Syrian government forces that are attacking CIA-trained rebels.

As if this US government had not done enough damage in the Middle East, particularly with their support for the Arab Spring that has been so costly in lives and freedoms, as Islamists factions toppled secular governments one after the other. Syria's Assad is one holdover. The US wants him out, to be replaced by one of the many Islamist faction that - by the way - are also fighting each other.
Israel has had enough wars. It does not need any more - and not at the demand of a United States that stays safely away when things get too hot to handle.
Let's remember how the treaty the United States signed with Ukraine promising to defend their borders in exchange for Ukraine's surrender of their nuclear arsenal is worth absolutely nothing. Today we see Ukraine breaking up while the United States places harmless sanctions on Russia.
We're not saying that the United States should meddle in the Ukraine situation. But it should not whip up "freedom fighters" and then watch from the distance as people kill each other.
And that's exactly what the United States is trying to do now with Israel. Unable to destroy it by means of diplomacy and "peace talks", it is trying to get the Syrians and other Arabs to do it instead by dragging it into an Arab-against-Arab conflict.
It's nothing less than disgusting.
The World Tribune reports:
LONDON — The United States is pressuring Israel to attack the Syrian military in the Golan Heights.

The sources said this marked the first U.S. request for Israel’s military to intervene in Syria. They said Obama and his aides had repeatedly warned Israel to refrain from striking Syria, which transferred long-range rockets and air defense systems to Hizbullah in neighboring Lebanon.
The CIA has been training more than 1,000 rebels in Jordan in a program financed by Saudi Arabia. The rebels, blocked by Islamist militias in southern Syria, failed in two operations to establish strongholds in Syria. The U.S.-trained rebels were said to have captured a Syrian Army outpost at Tel Al Ahrar in the Golan Heights. The sources said the outpost contained 250 Jordanian-based fighters, with another 250 Islamist militia members in the rest of the Golan Heights. With the exception of Quneitra, the rebels were said to control most of the Syrian portion of the heights. which amounts to 600 square kilometers.
At this point, Israel has not responded to the U.S. request. The sources said Israel’s military and intelligence community did not want a confrontation with the regime of President Bashar Assad as it eliminated rebel strongholds throughout central and western Syria.“ An [Israeli] attack could lead to a regional war, just the kind that Iran and Hizbullah might like right now,” another source said.
Please note: The US government has pressured Israel for decades to surrender the Golan Heights to Syria. Had Israel done that, the Golan would now be overrun with terrorists - and much closer to Jewish and Arab communities in Israel. The Golan is essential for Israel's defense. Once the Syrians stop massacring each other, they'll turn on Israel.
