    Israel is not threatening to topple Assad. It's only threatening to do that if he attacks Israel in retaliation for us blowing up convoys of certain types of game-changer weapons being sent to Hizbollah. Israel has a long history of preferring Arab dictators we know to rabble we don't (Jordan, Egypt) Assad isn't stupid so it can't have escaped his notice that while he is being roundly condemned by the Europeans, the Americans, the Arab League, and all of his neighbors such as Turkey and Jordan, Israel has actually come out and said it prefers him to stay in power, and has done nothing to support the rebels. Naturally this makes him look bad, so he has to do something. Therefore he fires a few shells into the Golan, and dredges up a 10 year old jeep to accuse Israel of helping the rebels with. But the fact is he needs all the help he can get, and he's not about to sabotage Israel's tacit preference for him staying in power (and any effects that might have on Washington.)
