British Analyst to ST: Syria’s Military Response to Israeli Aggression Demonstrates How Best to Deal with a Bully

British publisher and editor of "Politics First" Magazine, Dr. Marcus Papadopoulos has asserted that Syria’s military response to Israeli aggression in the early hours of May 10th  demonstrates how best to deal with a bully, indicating that Israel is looking to provoke a war with Syria and Iran, in the hope that this would bring about a direct military confrontation between America, on the one hand, and Syria and Iran, on the other hand.

He suspects that the West and their Islamist-Wahhabist terrorists’ allies, such as the White Helmets, will allege that the Syrian Government has used chemical weapons when the Syrian military turns its sights firmly on liberating Idlib.

In an interview with the Syriatrimes e-newspaper, the British editor said: “The Israeli attack on Syria during the early hours of Thursday 10 May demonstrates Israel's  intransigence on illegally attacking a sovereign country without approval by the United Nations Security Council.  And I fully support Syria's right to defend itself.”
