Russia Chides Israel for Syria Strikes, as Netanyahu Vows More Action Against Iran

Following reports of Israeli air strikes near Damascus the previous night, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reiterated on Wednesday that his country would not allow Iran to establish a foothold in Syria.

Speaking at a graduation ceremony for new Israeli Air Force pilots, Netanyahu said, “We are not prepared to accept the Iranian military entrenchment in Syria which is directed against us. We will act against it vigorously and continuously, including during the current period.”

US President Donald Trump’s surprise announcement last week of the withdrawal of American troops from Syria “will not change anything,” the Israeli leader emphasized.

“We’re standing steadfast on our red lines in Syria and everywhere else,” he said.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
