    Israel attacked Syria by bombing a military site that has killed at least 120 soldiers, according to reports. Is their any doubt now that Israel is allied with Al-Qaeda? This attack proves it. It is clear as day Israel is helping the Islamists in their war against the secular regime. You ask the wisdom of this attack? Israel has helped Hamas come to power by weakening the secularists. Israel has given birth to Hizbullah by it's invasion and occupation of Lebanon. Israel has played a decisive role in removing the secularists in Iraq by providing America with bogus "intelligence" and prodding for the invasion. Egypt is being led by an Islamist government of no fault of Israel but now Syria is on the verge of going Islamist with the help of Israel? This might be the strategy of creative destruction in full display - divide and conquer - but I can't help but see such tactics resulting in serious blow back against Israel.. It is a lie that the target was weapons going to Hizbullah. The attack was aimed at helping the "rebels", no other explanation will suffice; weapons weren't destroyed, soldiers were killed. Israel and Al-Qaeda do make wonderful bedfellows. Stay tuned, this marriage of convenience will have a short honeymoon. Israel never learns, hubris and delusions of grandeur will prove fatal in the end.
