Various nations want Israel to attack now. This will in no doubt weaken the IDF capability. The hope is that no matter the outcome these nations can come in and take over. Specifically various EU nations and RUSSIA. The goal is to pipe middle east Oil westward rather than 1. having to rely on Current routes which Russia controls or can control at the flip of a switch. Georgia cant stop Russia and they "Russians" control the natural gas routes. A logistical advantage exists using pipelines rather than shipping oil using ships. The ability to bypass the straight of Hormuz is a great logistical advantage bringing cheaper energy to the EU which will make the EU competitive with china and India by bringing cheaper energy to its shores. It is not possible for the US to remain competitive when it comes to energy. Its location is just bad and oil can not be pumped via pipeline. Israel how ever is logistically in the way. Israel could benefit from such a pipeline the problem is the Arab nations around it will not allow it. Nor will the French or Russians. Syria and Israel are still at war. So then do the thing as commanded to set thine borders according to the Torah. Give Manasseh Gad and Ruben his land. Of Syria and Lebanon When they throw the first rock ye shall throw on to them thy first boulder and make a quick end unto them.
