Damascus - Syria on Sunday lashed out at Israel for opening fire on protesters in the Golan Heights, south Lebanon and Gaza, warning that the Jewish state would bear full responsibility for its "criminal" actions.

"We firmly denounce the criminal Israeli actions against our people in the Golan Heights, Palestine and southern Lebanon that left several people dead and wounded," the foreign ministry said.

"Israel will have to bear full responsibility for its actions."

    This article is devoid of truth, and fuels anti-israel sentements. What is so criminal in keeping out syrians forcing there way over another nations borders? It is Israel's right to defend it's border in anyway possible, to protect it's citizans, just as it's SA's right to do so...And by the way, this is a Assad strategy to divert attention from his killing of 800+ syrian protestors, which were protesting against he's regime.

    as if syria cares about their own people...what did they expect when breaking down border fences, and streaming into Israel throwing rocks and attacking israeli civilians (2 israeli civilians hurt). By International law, any country can protect it's borders, and use force if neccassary...this article only stirs emotions and sell lies.

    Who did the British chase out of the land of Israel in 1948, by only distributing pamphlets? Not Palestinians, but Ottomans! This is why history must be preserved, because facts have a funny way of becoming lost as people try to stomp it out. Without the photographs of the concentration camps, the dead bodies and the starved survivors, there would have no proof of these facts! But now, dispite many attempts of the enimy of Israel to make those facts a fantacy, they can only but hope that their children might never learn the truth by seeing those pictures!

      So what. No-name posing as Rosa. You're stuck in the past. No one cares. It's irrelevant. Israel is there to stay. Yes, it has to go further in terms of going through its fear and growing it's democracy, but it is streets ahead of the brutal, tyrannical, oppressive regimes that surround it, and that use the Palestinians as a ploy. Turn your attention there, where it is needed.
