Israel will pay the price for an American attack on Syria that goes wrong, Likud Beytenu MK Moshe Feiglin warned in a letter to his English-speaking supporters.

Feiglin suggested that America’s anticipated strike in Syria was part of a long-term US plan hatched by US President Barack Obama.

“If it wanted, America could have continued to blur the Syrian use of chemical weapons,” Feiglin wrote on Thursday. “Massacres happen all the time throughout the world. Some are intentionally ignored while others are amplified. The president of the United States is eager to bolster his image in the aftermath of his resounding policy failures. To stabilize his relations with the Arab world and Russia after expected complications set in, Obama intends to pay in Israeli coinage.”

Feiglin said Israel needed to prepare for the geopolitical ramifications of American intervention in Syria.

He suggested that such integral preparations are not currently taking place.

“Israel must urgently formulate a strategy – and not suffice itself with mere tactical positioning,” he said. “In the Middle East, either you sit down to the dinner – or you are the main course.”
