It's all about ISRAEL.

According to an article in the prominent Politico.com news source, the “Obama administration is using a time-tested pitch to get Congress to back military strikes in Syria: It will help protect Israel.

Watch out for the traitor Dennis Ross ,a long time Bush adviser. Helping the Bushes betray their country!

“Israel’s enemies, including Iran and the terrorist group Hezbollah, could be emboldened if Congress fails to approve action against the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, senior administration officials said Saturday.
“And for the second day in a row, President Barack Obama publicly cited the threat against Israel if Assad’s reported use of chemical weapons goes unchecked.
“Secretary of State John Kerry also referred to Israel repeatedly as he made the rounds on all five major Sunday morning news shows — as well as comparing Assad to Adolf Hitler.
“I think to contemplate that the Congress of the United States would turn its back on Israel . . . I can’t contemplate that the Congress would turn its back on all of that responsibility,” Kerry/Kohn told “Fox News Sunday.”
According to the Politico.com report, the “Capitol is filled with strong supporters of Israel who understand the argument” but that “Israel’s security is a political razor blade that could cut both ways.
“As Obama has weighed potential military action, the politics of Israel’s interests have become more delicate. The prospect of strikes against Syria triggering reprisals from Iran and Hezbollah is real enough to bolster the case against authorizing the president to use force, too, congressional insiders say.
“Washington’s pro-Israel lobby, typically highly critical of the Syrian regime, has been publicly silent in recent days, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asked officials in his government not to speak about possible American intervention in Syria.
“The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the most prominent pro-Israel lobbying group, wrote on its website Thursday that the Syrian crisis underscored the need to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions, delicately sidestepping the question of whether “House leaders are likely to use prominent Jewish members who are hawkish on Israel as a bellwether.
“That group includes Democratic Reps. Henry Waxman of California, Eliot Engel and Steve Israel of New York, Ted Deutch and Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida and Brad Schneider of Illinois.”

It's time for the world to take action against Syria things are getting worse and worse. Assad will never relinquish power, he'll keep hanging on by killing more and more people.
