Syria Is Both A Sponsor & Target of Terror
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday September 13, 2006

I've Been Thinking:

The United States Embassy in Damascus was bombed.
The United States Embassy in Damascus was attacked by terrorists.
Damascus, Syria?
Doesn't Syria sponsor terror, why would Damascus be victim to terrorist attacks?

Here's why:
Syrian President Bashar Assad is petrified of terror from within his own country. Assad is afraid that Fundamentalists want to overthrow his Bathist regime, and rightfully so. That's why he sponsors terror - by becoming a player Assad hopes to keep the bad boys on his side. That's why Syria sponsors terror in Lebanon, as a means to achieve Syria's own goals.

This attack was definitely the work of Islamic terrorists.
It was an attack against the United States.
It was just as much an attack against Syrian President Assad.

Syria sponsors Islamic terror and Syria is the target of Islamic terror.
This is not ironic.
This is the way Islamic Fundamentalist terrorists play their game.
