Open Letter to the Median Jews who Run Syria

Most of you are Alawites, some of you are Druze, in either case, you did not know you were you Jewish when you grew up because nobody told you and in any case your parents did not know either, only your top religious leaders knew. Now however the situation is different as you know that you are Jewish and you have power and responsibility to make a difference. We have been separated for 27 centuries but we are still one nation after such a long time. I am Jewish and you are just as Jewish as I am. Let’s join hands for a better future.

War is inevitable between Israel and Hezbollah as Iran will order Hezbollah to rain down tens of thousands of missiles on Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities in revenge for Israel destroying the Iranian nuclear weapons program. The war will engulf Syria as well since Hezbollah is present in Syria and Syria supports Hezbollah and has Iranian forces stationed on its soil. Furthermore, destroying Hezbollah requires doing so in both Lebanon and Syria. Syria is exhausted after a decade of war and the SAA (Syrian Arab Army) stands no chance at all against the high tech IDF (Israel Defense Forces) and the exceptionally motivated SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) of the AANES (Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria). Let’s avoid a tragic war that can only have one outcome, comprehensive defeat for the SAA.

While war is inevitable in Lebanon, peace is possible in Syria. I call upon you to seriously consult among yourselves towards reaching a consensus for peacefully partitioning Syria between Israel and the AANES whereby you will all become full citizens of Israel, with full civil rights and members of the country’s Jewish majority. You will enjoy full immunity for any acts committed in an official capacity and you will retain full property rights. You will enjoy those rights under a binding international agreement. 

I know that you may not be welcome in the Druze and Alawite regions of present Syria after the Israeli annexation due to the unpopularity of your present government, but you will certainly be welcome in what is already Israel, you are Jewish and you are most welcome in Israel!

In the end we are all siblings and we have one destiny despite a separation of 27 centuries. Israel is your home.

Sincerely yours,

Daniella Bartfeld
