article imageOp-Ed: Iran and Syria instigate Gaza conflict

By Eliot Elwar     Nov 21, 2012 in World
The Middle East crisis escalates as Syria and Iran continues instigating the Gaza conflict. Iran continues trying to rearm Hamas with missiles. Iran and Syria need Israel to focus more on Hamas militants rather than them.
According to Alhomayed , the Iranians are attempting to escalate the violence on Israel’s borders with their militant operatives. When they were ineffective on the Syrian and Lebanese fronts, the Iranians selected the Gaza Strip. When the Golan front failed to progress rapidly enough for al-Assad and Iran, they resorted to the Gaza front, since this region can erupt more rapidly. However, Iran and Syria’s plan makes this conflict easier for Israel because Gaza is like the IDF punching bag that it can use for training and muscle building because victory in Gaza would solve several problems in one move.
According to World Net Daily, Iran and Hezbollah are desperately trying to resupply Hamas militants operating within the Gaza Strip with long-range missiles to fire into Israel. The reports comes as Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the Iranian parliament’s national security and foreign policy committee leader, disagreed with Israeli claims about his nation supplying rockets to Gaza militant groups.
Mideast analysts believe that Iran and Syria are behind the Hamas attack on Israeli citizens. Iran wants to begin the war to distract the IDF and prevent an attack on Iran’s nuclear enrichment facilities. This strategy could help unite the Arabs into attacking Israel and save Assad’s regime from collapse. This plan reveals that Iran is desperate and its leadership is feeling the pressure from Israel and the Western powers. This situation means a major Mideast war could erupt between Iran, Syria, and Israel.
If Hamas militants agree to a ceasefire, it will be due to the IDF inflicting tremendous damage on them to the point where they cannot continue the fight. The Hamas militants will only agree to a ceasefire when they are desperate and out of ammunition because their truce only means they will resupply themselves with more rockets and weaponry before they plan for their next attacks on Israel.
