Israel is not intervening in the civil war what it is doing is destroying arms convoys Assad is sending to Hezbollah, weapons which will one day be used against Israel. We don't want Hezbollah to have things like missiles that can shoot down Israeli fighter jets or civilian planes so we bomb the convoys. If that eventually drags us into the civil war in some way because Assad sends terrorist forces to attack or fires missiles at us then we will respond without hesitation and it may well result in Assad being toppled and then a fight for power in Syria erupting. Its all down to Assad if he doesn't send weapons or attacks then we will leave him to keep killing his own people and watch as our enemies destroy each other. There is a difference between staying out the conflict when it doesn't concern you and getting involved when it does also what is wrong with taking advantage of neighbours in trouble? Was Bibi elected to protect Israels interests anyway possible including taking advantage of the poor old Syrians in their time of need or was he elected to be the man of morals who doesnt take advantage of others?
