Number one. Assad has killed over 50,000 of his people. The numbers are said to be about 70,000 but in that case for sure 50,000. So you are ready willing and able to allow him to continue doing so. Even the EU is ready to allow shipments of arms to the rebels. Secondly. Syria and Israel are technically at war since 1967. Any attack by either side is no longer a tit for tat. Any attack is one to weaken the other. Israel could have wiped Syria off years ago but would have opened a whole Russian can of Arab worms.
