The innocent Israeli urging for war in Syria

What is notable this week is that Israeli leaders seem to have agreed that war on Syria would be good for Israel.  This explains the statement by that Israeli official who claimed that chemical weapons were used, and he based his fatwa on pictures of Syrian foaming at the mouth.  And now Israeli leaders are doing what they did back in 2002: merely edging the US to go to war.  This is not to deprive the US imperial power of agency, of course.  The US is responsible for its own wars and invasions and occupation, Israeli cheerleading notwithstanding.
