    Israelis have forgotten history. Assad’s grandfather was of the six Alewite’s (in French as Alaouites) elders who have asked the French colonial authority to permit Jewish settlers from Europe to move freely to the Middle East. The weakest spot of today’s Israel is its economy and not a threat coming from Iran or Syria. The Bibi Netanyahu’s government should develop a new economic model (“state” capitalism type) replacing an American “pure” capitalistic model. Obviously America is losing its super power status (unfairly secured by the Bretton Woods conference in 1944) quickly and Israel depends too much on American taxpayers and Jewish sponsors money. The new regional superpowers China and India will never support Israel as America did economically and politically in the past.
