What is Al-Rai playing at?

August 30th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Media

Two days after making wild unsourced allegations that Israel is planning to attack Hizbollah factories in Syria, Kuwaiti gossip rag Al-Rai is at it again.

This time the ‘newspaper’ claims that Hizbollah and Syria have created a joint military command to attack Israel. But here’s the kick: the unsourced report claims that Hizbollah will place anti-aircraft missiles inside Syria.

So we are supposed to believe that Al-Rai has anonymous contacts within the Israeli military, Hizbollah and the Syrian army. At the same time.

Al-Rai is playing a very dirty, very dangerous game. These two articles seem to be an attempt to stir up an Israel-Syria conflict. First by saying, hey Syria, Israel wants to attack you. And then by saying, hey Israel, Syria’s ready to fire on your aircraft.

    I don’t understand why you have a problem with that article? It’s extremely likely that these things could be true, in fact I’d be shocked if Syria hasn’t prepared something like this because that would border on negligence with regards to national security. What’s the big deal?

    Whether or not it’s true is completely irrelevant.

    The problem is that this is, in all likelihood, a completely made up story based on this newspaper’s desire to stir up trouble. He’s had two stories in quick succession: one suggesting Israel has secret plans to threaten Syria and another suggesting Syria has secret plans to threaten Israel. Like I said, there’s no way, NO WAY, this guy has anonymous sources in: the Israeli army, Hizbollah AND the Syrian military.
