Israel Minister: "The Time Has Come To Assassinate Bashar Assad"

Tyler Durden's picture

Israel's Housing and Construction Minister Yoav Galant called for the assassination of Syrian President Bashar Assad following yesterday's US State Department report that the Syrian regime was using a prison crematorium to hide mass killings outside Damascus, the Jerusalem Post reported.

Speaking at a conference outside Jerusalem, Galant, a retired Israeli Defence Forces general, said that in light of recent allegations that Assad’s regime carried out mass executions and burned the bodies of the victims, he had to be killed.

"The reality in which people are executed in Syria, being hit deliberately by chemical weapons, their bodies being burned, something we haven’t seen in 70 years. In my view, we are crossing a red line. And in my view, the time has come to assassinate Assad. It’s as simple as that,” said Galant, who previously served as the head of the IDF’s Southern Command. The minister said Assad’s actions in Syria amount to nothing less than a “genocide,” with “hundreds of thousands killed." 

Galant also likened the assassination of Assad to cutting off the “tail of the snake.” After that, he said, “we can focus on the head, which is in Tehran.”

In a conversation with The Times of Israel after his speech, Galant stood by his comments and acknowledged that targeted political assassinations are considered illegal under international law, but clarified that he “wasn’t speaking about practicalities.” However, he added, “Anyone who murders people and burns their corpses does not have a place in this world.”

As reported on Monday, the United States State Department accused the Assad regime of carrying out mass killings of thousands of prisoners and burning the bodies in a large crematorium outside the capital.

The US said it believed about 50 detainees a day are being hanged at Saydnaya military prison, about 45 minutes north of Damascus. Many of the bodies, it said, are then burned in the crematorium.  “We believe that the building of a crematorium is an effort to cover up the extent of mass murders taking place,” said Stuart Jones, the top US diplomat for the Middle East, in accusing the Syrian government of sinking “to a new level of depravity.”

According to Galant, while it is unclear whether or not the crematorium was in use for all those years, it is imperative that something must now be done. The Obama administration made a “strategic mistake” Galant said by “deviating” from the course of supporting Sunni countries in order to try to come closer to Shi'ite countries, something which Galant said is different in the Trump administration.

During his speech, Galant also said that in a wider view, Assad and his ally Hezbollah, the Lebanese terror group, are larger threats to the world order than the Islamic State and other Sunni terrorist groups. Galant was speaking at the Israel Defense publication’s “Ground Warfare and Logistics” conference at the tank museum in Latrun.

Up until a year-and-a-half ago, Syria looked like it was heading towards a Sunni rule, but following the Russian intervention, who used methods first used in Chechnya such as blockading cities while continuing aerial bombardments, the will of the rebels to fight was broken and the tides turned.


But while the Russians are currently backing Assad, they realize the importance of the region and understand who they are aligned with, Galant said.


“They realize that once the war is over there will still be 20 million Sunnis in Syria who will be wanting to avenge their dead and the Russians know they will be a target,” Galant said adding that the Russians will “seek avenues to make relations better with the Sunnis, including sacrificing Assad.”

As for ISIS, the Israeli minister was laconic: “The world will wipe out Daesh, the Muslim Brotherhood and al-Qaeda,” he said. Galant said his assessment came from the fact that those terrorist groups do not enjoy the same level of support as Syria and Hezbollah, which are backed by Iran.

Indeed, his main focus was Tehran:  “What is behind Syria is Hezbollah who is backed by Iran. Iran is a danger to the security of the entire world. Iran is the problem, not the solution.” By getting to Assad, Galant said, we get to Tehran. “When we get the tail of the snake we can get the head in Tehran too.”

In short, it's refreshing that in an increasingly volatile world, absolutely nothing has changed in the middle-east.

i am tempted to say assassinate benjamin netanyahu but that is not what is needed.  he is not martyr material.  he is a mass murderer of u.s. citizens (and more than a few of them jews).

bust 9-11.  that will change people's minds.  prosecutions will probably follow eventually but even if they don't, the more the electorate ceases to be a flock of sheeple, the weaker the deep state becomes.

nothing is as strong a weapon and nothing is as easy to use and with less risk to those attacking the deep state with it.  i mean compared to assassination, etc.

... some (((people))) make me wish I have more middle fingers ...

pods's picture

The fucking nerve of (((these))) people.  Of course they would jump all over anything that involves an oven. What a bunch of ambulance chasers. 

Newsflash: The (((jews))) weren't the only damn people mistreated throughout history.

I heard this bit about Assad on the radio this morning, so the 4th branch of government is pushing this meme big time.  They just cannot let him be, cannot let the Syrians be. They have to keep it up until Syria is a smoking pile of rubble with a Rothschild central bank running things.

I would like to say that these (((people))) will get their comeuppance, but at this time I seriously doubt that will happen. They own almost all major outlets that people watch for news.  They people don't get news, but they watch it ostensibly to get news.

Just sucks.

You may not agree, but it's worth noting that when those people stand before God they will be held to account for every word and deed

I take great comfort in knowing that...

"What does it profit a man to gain the whole world yet lose his own soul"

pods's picture

Well I wish I had your optimism, but I do not. 

If the atheists are right, and we are merely worm food after our time, then what?

That is my big problem with religion. It allows people to endure hardship and suffering in this life due to a promise of everlasting life in the next. And then that is extrapolated that the "bad" people will get theirs in the next life. 

My cynical side starts to really see the genius in this sort of line of thinking. You get to act like an ass and take from others in this life, and they will sit around happily taking it in the poop-chute dreaming about the next life.  A more perfect system could not have been dreamed up by those who wish to rule over us.

I sit around and look at the wondrous beauty of life, and cannot accept that all of this is the result of mere chance.  Just too much awe, everywhere you look.  But I don't think that whoever is in charge is sitting up there ready to judge every last one of us as we exhale for the last time, checking his list like Santa.



Edit: Thank you Tyler for cleaning up this thread of that ten page post!

"You get to act like an ass and take from others in this life, and they will sit around happily taking it in the poop-chute dreaming about the next life."

And what evidence do you have that atheists take it less happily in their poop chute?  What atheist country is egalitarian in terms of wealth, power and opportunity?  Qaddafi's Libya and Switzerland are probably the two closest example, but neither is atheist (at least Switzerland wasn't when its institutions were established).

God is rumored to be very good at finding facts.

Without Assad, all the Armenians, Kurds, Druze, Christians, and all other religious or ethnic minorities are dead. These Israeli's don't give a rat's ass about the lives of Syrians or Iranians. Utter self-serving hypocrisy. As for the Muslim Brotherhood being rolled up, good luck, they've been trying that with varying degrees of authoritarianism in various Arab countries for generations now.

Don't forget the whole Syrian protest started with the demand to roll back mixed boy/girl schools and to scrap the ban on wearing head-scarves as a teacher, demands by Mulsim brotherhood types who want Sharia and theocracry instead of a secular state with elections and minorities.

So Assad is accused of executing "terrorists" that have waged a massively bloody war in Syria for 6 years.  Well, you know, it's not like the the Empire tries to kill terrorists ....

And on top of that, he is accused of cremating the remains!  Oh!  My!  God!  The horror!  Someone, quick, build a fake "gas chamber" like Stalin did at Auschwitz, we gotta give this story legs!

In June 1967 Israel attacked the USS Liberty for hours and left a trail of dead and wounded sailors, and got the Swamp traitors to threaten all survivors into silence.

The customarily raucous and hostile press was meek and mild when ordered to back off.

They wouldn't dare push for facts.

As if they didn't already know.

They knew then and know now who runs the show.

Actually it was less Israel's fault than the Swamp's.

Israel acted in its own interest and when they needed chum for a false flag to attack Egypt the Swamp meekly obeyed and sacrificed the USS Liberty.

The Potomac should flood its banks and drown DC for a rat nest.

Great...They have just given the idea to Iran & Hizbollah to take out Netanyahoo.

Of course, if Israel wants to GET RID of Netanyahoo, this is a great way to place the blame.

Usually however; if the Israelis SAY they are going to do something, it means they are NOT going to do it.

The real motivation for Israel's desire to take over Syria is in Yoav Galant's current job description: HOUSING AND CONSTRUCTION MINISTER.  

Syria and the middle east is Israel's lebensraum.

A distant second to the true reason for the recent plundering of ME nations.
Few remain without a Rothschild controlled central banks.

In the year of 2000 there were eight countries without a Rothschild owned or controlled Central Bank:

  1. Afghanistan
  2. Iraq
  3. Sudan
  4. Libya
  5. Cuba
  6. North Korea
  7. Iran
  8. Syria

There was this dude who was around here 7 years ago trying to point all of this out way before the conspiracy theory became conspiracy fact.


Time has underscored that the insights that came from that 'dude', were, & continue to be more accurate & truthful than anything uttered by the likes of Yellen, or Bernanke, or, Krugman, or Larry Summers, or Obama, or Gartman, anything from Goldman Sachs, or even Trump or his puppetteer Kushner FFS.


Yet ~ they all still make the headlines & the dudes only function anymore is to think up cool new usernames.

Yeah, I think I know of that dude. Smart guy.  Kinda odd though, heard he made everyone call him Psycho?

And he didn't want anyone touching him either. ;)

wake up Christians. these fucking reptiles want to wipe you out.

alot like "Land of the Lost" except it's for real, not a kid's show.


fleur de lis's picture

The "crematorium" story was just too holocaustish from the start.

First the fake Syrian gassing story now the fake Syrian crematorium story.

The CIA must have outsourced this assignment to their art of deception friends at Mossad.

Galant's reaction was absolutely Pavlovian and look for more to follow suit.

We are all held hostage to an event from the mid 20th century that influences our national and foreign policies.

The distant past controls the present and binds the future -- very neurotic.

Anyone who reacts so recklessly to a current event based upon a last century event where he was a non participant should not be allowed to govern. 

He/she/they can dwell in their own past for their own reasons but leave others out of it unless they want to be there.

Someone who is willingly trapped in the past cannot be allowed to determine the present and future for others.

Or at least should not be allowed to influence those outside his own borders.

I dont understand why Muslims and Jews dont get along... they both LOVE war.

SmackDaddy's picture

You don't understand? Perhaps turning off your talmudvision and opening a history book would help:

Read up on the how the Jews subverted the Visigoth Kingdom from the inside and welcomed the Umayyad Caliphate to Hispana. Where did the Jews go after they had been expelled from every part of Western Europe and were finally finished off in the Inquisition? They were welcomed with open arms by the Ottoman Sultan. Lookup the history of Jerusalem. (((They))) have always enjoyed special priveleges there.

The conflicts with the Muslims did not start until very recently. But God willing, the last Jew and the last Arab will shoot each other at the exact same time.

So Israel does shit to the Palestinians and we don't hear the Norwegian ?? saying we should assasinate Beibi.  But for Israel who wants a gas pipeline across another soverign country to ship it's gas to Europe (and make  big bucks) it is OK to recommend assasination cause...... they must be doing stuff for Hezbollah. And they wonder why more and more people in the world hate the jews (zionists).

It's different when they execute prisoners, keep over a million people in an outdoor prison camp, and then dump white phosphorus on them. That's justified because the skygod told them.

The reason the Tribe wants Assad gone is because the Tribe stands to make alot of money with the proposed Qatar pipeline. It's that simple and has nothing to do with the way Assad may or may not mistreat his people.

The pipeline is nothing. What's in the Golan Heights is what's important

I'd be fine if they just left the planet, too. Being forced to do justice will be messy, time consuming...but at least the legal fees should be minimal.
