JERUSALEM – On the heels of what it views as a Hezbollah victory against the Jewish state, Syria is forming its own Hezbollah-like guerilla organization to fight Israel in hopes of "liberating" the Golan Heights, an official from Syrian President Bashar Assad's Ba'ath party told WorldNetDaily yesterday.
The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Syria learned from Hezbollah's military campaign against Israel the past month that "fighting" is more effective than peace negotiations with regard to gaining territory.
He said Syria's new guerilla force would be trained by Hezbollah leaders.
"Syria is very serious about establishing this new guerilla force," the official said.
In a televised address yesterday, Assad declared Hezbollah's path of "resistance" achieved results during the last four weeks of fighting against Israel.
"The region has changed because of the achievements of the resistance [Hezbollah]," said Assad, speaking to a journalists association.
Assad said members of Hezbollah used their "will, determination and faith" to counter Israeli arms, enabling the Lebanese militia to defeat Israel.
"We tell them [Israelis] that after tasting humiliation in the latest battles, your weapons are not going to protect you – not your planes, or missiles or even your nuclear bombs. ... The future generations in the Arab world will find a way to defeat Israel," Assad said.

The Front for the Liberation of the Golan’s main mission aside from attacking and killing as many Jewish people as possible is the return by all means necessary of the Golan Heights.
Syria is the culprit this time; they believe that the military conflict in southern Lebanon is proof that fighting a guerilla war against Israel will be more effective in the long run to gain territory than to use peace negotiations.
This decision that Syria has come to is a troubling one, we hardly need another large scale guerilla force in the Middle East, and there have already been too many deaths at the hands of these Muslim guerilla armies.
The guerilla armies have been advancing in technology, tactics and weaponry, receiving hundreds of anti-tank rockets from Iran, some even powerful enough to attack buildings where Israeli soldiers have sought refuge.
There are now even reports of Hezbollah fighters using British night vision goggles including a cache of the NVG’s found at a Hezbollah command and control center in southern Lebanon.
If groups such as this new one continue to attack Israeli without regard for innocent people then they must expect the retaliation of the Israeli military and a full airborne attack.
Israel has also mounted a raid in southern Lebanon on a Hezbollah stronghold aimed at stopping them from rearming via Syria and Iran.
Iran is ultimately responsible for the actions taken against Israel by its proxy Hezbollah; therefore it is directly responsible for the many deaths of innocent people in both Lebanon and Israel.
Israel must not allow this new Syrian guerilla army to gain the level of sophistication that Hezbollah now enjoys.
It would be a devastating mistake for Israel if they were to allow them to arm and train personnel and become a legitimate force in the Middle East.
