Israel is the Middle East's only liberal democracy. It strikes Syria, but not for liberal reasons. Syria, which technically has been at war with Israel for 40 years, declares war on Israel. The Israeli strike targets weapons and is condemned by Iran. Iran condemns the strike on weapons it denies trafficking in the first place. Although this trafficking has been going on for years, the Arab League condemns the Israeli strike as a "violation of an Arab state's sovereignty." Egypt, a country which is prosecuting those expressing dissent, condemns Israel for violating "international principles."
Or as it's known in the Middle East: Sunday morning.
