Syria, Hezbollah 'looking to attack Israel'

Jordan's king warned American Jewish officials yesterday Syria and Hezbollah are planning terrorist attacks in Israel to distract international attention from the growing crisis in Lebanon, WorldNetDaily has learned.

King Abdullah II met with top American Jewish officials in Washington at honorary event thanking Abdullah for his support of recent Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. The King told Jewish leaders he passed a message to prime minister Ariel Sharon that Syria and Hezbollah are seeking to step up attacks against Israel to deflect international opposition surrounding Damascus' occupation of Lebanon and opposition calls for an investigation into the assassination of former Prime Ministet Rafiq Hariri, for which Syria has been largely blamed.
