Yoav Galant appeals for the head of a sovereign state to be assassinated.
Recent totally baseless accusations of Syrian government mass murder has inspired a lowly Israeli minister to call for Bashar al Assad’s assassination. This is a very unusual step for an Israeli official to unashamedly and openly call for an execution an enemy so brazenly. This kind of demand is usually spoken secretively, in the company of a leading Mossad agent.
The outrageous incitement to murder follows another claim of crimes against humanity, accusing President Assad of (again) slaughtering his own people. A few grainy satellite pictures of a prison in Syria will be followed by open source investigation by the intrepid Higgins and Kaszeta (bell¿ngcat), blue and red boxes added for effect. While these two planks are using microsoft paint software, messrs Bartlett, Beeley and Phelan are literally dodging bullets.
The big problem for the ‘Assad out’ campaigners is that they have ‘convicted’ him so many times already. Each time, a steady drip of contradicting facts are uncovered by the few courageous independent journalists still brave enough to ply their trade. Eva Bartlett, Vanessa Beeley, Lizzie Phelan……… I Can’t think of any male journalists. Apparently, the closest that the mainstream media reporters get to the conflict zone is a very nice hotel in Beirut.
It should also be noted that considering the MSM adulation of those nice rebels, none of these female journalists would be safe wandering around terrorist held areas, such as Idlib. None of them have come to any harm reporting from government areas, nor do they appear to cover their hair. Looking at videos of terrorist controlled regional protests, women aren’t even allowed out of their homes.
Back to Mr Galant…..
…. Such an inappropriate name. As is the case with most Israelis, he is a former IDF soldier. He was promoted to head of Southern Command after starting his career in the Israeli Navy. From the Jerusalem Post:
“A recent highlight of his career was Operation Cast Lead in the winter of 2008/9, which he planned and directed.”
The slaughter of captive civilians is regarded as a ‘highlight’, according to the JPost. After reading this, I’m shocked that he only demands the assassination of Assad and not the culling of a few hundred thousand Syrians.
If ever evidence was needed that the Israelis live in some kind of alternative universe which allows them to do whatever they deem necessary, this is it. Their confidence in knowing how, what or if a person should be punished is extremely revealing. Most people would call it arrogant and I wouldn’t argue.
