All right I think they called this getting prickly over Syria we're just getting word now that the United States -- particularly the Obama administration is criticizing rush has moved for setting -- of missiles to Syria.
As you know just sort of coats here they've got a lot of Russian sits in the neighborhood it's heightened tensions there.
To put it mildly Jerusalem mayor nearby are cut joins us right now on this it's getting pretty.
-- -- -- -- -- Well the -- are now very busy with themselves but they're not very friendly and so what we have to watch.
Is make sure that they don't take some -- there.
More aggressive weaponry.
And move it to third parties like this his byline live and on and others and I think Israel's watching and -- to make sure.
That these bad people don't use third parties to try and hit Israel.
Are surprised that post Israel taking -- -- movement and -- here that no one else is followed.
Suit either against Israel have been -- it threats but so far and none of material it's.
Well I think that there's Syrian regime the Assad regime and others are very very.
That if they try to hit us we're stronger and we will be we will hit them back.
And that balance that even their their friends and players in the region are our hands off.
Well they know why because it's probably not going to be worthwhile trying to challenge Israel.
We very very.
Clear with a message that you know you busy with -- -- cells.
Don't don't play around with us -- -- very very we're working very hard and -- scanning the economy seeking friends seeking relationship with -- moderates around us.
But and it is very interesting observation.
You see that -- the players in the world that are working well with Israel are doing well.
The ones that are perceiving themselves as enemies of Israel the harsher they are who did the worst they're doing.
Look at this seeing regime Iraq Iran.
They're all very busy with themselves working hard in their economy is not in the right direction.
You might write about them but I'm looking at Russia now is beefing up its presence in Syria of providing weapons to Syria a lot more -- off of Syria.
That obviously it's.
Raises the -- what would -- what would they do if we were -- read or or going after chemical weapons stockpiles at minus.
The answer and and it does Russert just sit idly by -- the -- that some of the fears of this escalates its.
They say that in the Middle East it's hard to predict the past.
So I'm not sure anyone really knows what's gonna happen but one thing is very very clear to the Syrians and in any one of their partners.
Don't mess around with us don't mess around with Israel.
If we feel or find out -- trying to move your weaponry to third parties we will stop you if you try and hit Israel and hurt us.
We will stop you.
And you'll pay a heavy price that message that balance of power making sure that we're not interrupting in internal crisis they have but as long.
As long as its internal if we feel a threat.
It's our life.
That is that is they don't like is -- discuss slap in the face and there is Benjamin Netanyahu.
Imploring Letterman took an hey hands off you know but don't don't make the situation where some -- America.
And here -- -- then I'm not -- arms Assad to petite but certainly helps and -- with more bad stuff.
-- greater military show of force.
Either he just wanted to make a mockery of the prime minister or he's he's he's off funds -- Well we don't know what happened in those discussions.
One thing is very very clear to me -- and it's on now is very very clear on defending Israel.
And it really asked to feel like he was -- And I don't know and you know I would be meeting how would you feel I don't know what is it what was in the meeting but that wouldn't I'm -- -- -- area.
-- even if -- -- armed Syria if they mean anything against Israel.
And they are harming Syria because we're going to make sure that the -- -- use those weaponry and if the god forbid.
They use any kind of weaponry.
Against Israel god forbid they do that we will make sure -- Winning -- worthwhile and -- the president is already said there would be consequences this sort of thing it would permit a line in the sand.
His critics here said well you you now you know when you're -- another line or you're you're you to -- rounds with his.
It's happens we all have the regime retaliating against Assad.
Is not better than him.
So it's between the worst of all evils the -- and help.
To defend the Syrian people on the one hand the -- sitting there you have over 67000.
People murdered and killed in in in Syria.
It's appalling it's a shame that the world doesn't matter -- by chemical weapons or -- of their being killed.
Receded and the acting -- you don't -- is sitting on the sideline.
And not intervening and the challenges -- intervene how to intervene you know he's not -- yesterday -- we -- and every now.
Well somebody's got to stop the weaponry the supply weaponry some they should make sure that the people that are lifting their arms -- -- -- kill other people.
That's should be unacceptable and in the world we live and but it's not the self defense these are people are killing each other and you know this is what they're doing at home god forbid you know what they could do.
And again look at Israel as and try to hit us.
See this a bad regime.
And the world has to send -- very very clear message.
That if you're a very bad regime and -- -- trying and you becoming more and more radical.
And more and more using you know and weaponry against innocent people.
You should pay a price but he hasn't had asked him but we'll see -- we'll see reverted -- -- just over -- one thing.
While the neighborhood word and we live in a tough neighborhood that's -- -- but Israel today -- -- some specific he's doing very very well because we're seeking partnerships.
We're seeking to take advantage of the opportunity and while.
The people looking to haunt us we're focusing on how to create a better world this current economy and a reason -- -- -- and I thank you very much Henry.
