      As one of the former heads of Shin Bet said, in the powerful and timely
      documentary "The Gatekeepers", Israel wins the battles but is losing the
      war. The last thing which is in the long
      range interests of Israel is any further military escalation with its
      neighbors."

      I'm sending this to several lists, so some of you will get it at least twice
      - sorry about that.

      While at this point Israel has not confirmed the attacks, it has been
      reliably established that
      Israeli jets struck twice at Damascus, killing perhaps at least a hundred
      Syrian troops and
      inflicting heavy damage on facilities in the Syrian capital.

      The US media (and officials) are thus far supporting the Israeli actions and
      there is a general
      assumption that such a major military strike would not have occurred without
      at least some
      consultation with Washington DC.

      The Israeli excuse (if it is possible, really, to excuse two heavy air
      strikes at the capital city
      of a neighboring country!) is that it was concerned about the shipment of
      military supplies from Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon.
