On his nationally syndicated radio talk show Wednesday evening, host Mark Levin warned that “it’s inevitable that there’s going to be a war here” in the Middle East after reports of an air raid on an Israeli base in the Golan Heights following an alleged Israeli airstrike near Damascus.

“I believe, ladies and gentleman, that it’s inevitable that there’s going to be a war here, not because the United States or Donald Trump, not because of Israel, not because of Saudi Arabia, because of Iran,” warned Mark Levin. “Iran wants war, and Iran’s going to get war. And the fact of the matter is, this is no joke.”

Mark Levin’s comments came after, as reported by The Sun on May 8, “[t]he Jewish state launched rockets at the base in the Kisweh area, located south of Damascus, after detecting ‘irregular activity’ of Iranian forces in Syria.” In the early morning hours on May 9th and as updated on May 10th, The Sun also reported, that “[Israeli retaliatory] strikes hit ‘nearly every target’ and were in response to ‘20 rockets’ fired by the Iranian Quds Force, Israeli military chiefs claimed.”

Below is a transcript of Mark Levin’s remarks from his show on Wednesday:

“Over at the DrudgeReport, he’s linking to The Sun. Israel air raid, air raid sirens sound in Israel as Syria shells a military base in Golan Heights after airstrike on Damascus. Rockets are believed to have been fired from the occupied Golan Heights region and have landed in the province near the Syrian city. I’m reading from The Sun. Israel has claimed that the Iranian-backed forces have launched missiles at their military base in the annexed Golan Heights region following reports of an Israeli bombing campaign near Damascus. Israel defense systems are designed to destroy rockets. They have their Iron Dome up. Israeli spokesman said, about ’20 rockets’ were fired by the Iranian Qud[s] Force[s], at the Jewish state’s defensive line in Golan Heights. He claimed that no one has been injured and the defense systems intercepted several of the missiles. Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights also said jets flew over the area which lies near the Syrian southern border. This comes after missile strikes last night were attributed to Israel following reports of ‘irregular activity’ of Iranian forces in Syria.

“The Iranian forces are on the move, and Israel is not going to sit there like a sitting duck and wait to get hit.

“‘Campaigners said the strikes killed 9 people [now 15 people] and targeted depots and rocket launchers that likely belonged to Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards.


“‘The [Israel Defense Forces has] deployed the Iron Dome defence systems … in Golan Heights and in northern Israel in preparation for retaliatory strikes,’ reports Haaretz.

“‘Tuesday’s [strikes] represent an immediate escalation in tensions in the region … ,’ and I’m not going to read the rest of this, which, of course, attacks Donald Trump.

“‘Israel, which almost never confirms or denies airstrikes in Syria, did not comment on Tuesday’s attack[s].’

“I believe, ladies and gentleman, that it’s inevitable that there’s going to be a war here, not because the United States or Donald Trump, not because of Israel, not because of Saudi Arabia, because of Iran. Iran wants war, and Iran’s going to get war. And the fact of the matter is, this is no joke.

“And you can thank Barack Obama for laying the foundation, and the Europeans: the British, the French, the Germans, the Russians, the Chinese and all the rest of them – pouring $150 billion into this genocidal terrorist regime that kills American soldiers, that funds Al Qaeda, the Taliban, Hamas. What in the world were they thinking pouring billions of dollars into a regime like this, which slaughters its own people, rapes its own people, tortures its own people? What the hell were they thinking?

“They’re in Iraq. They’re in Syria. They’re in Yemen. They’re in Lebanon.

“150,000 missiles aimed at Israel from Hezbollah, their surrogate militia. They’re shooting missiles now, and then into Saudi Arabia – they want to knock that regime out.

“And we’re supposed to follow the French and the Germans. When the hell have we ever followed the Germans? And the Brits. Well, you know what, maybe when the British get a navy again, maybe we’ll follow them. But last time I checked, they have to follow us.

“Thank God we have a Commander-in-Chief, a real Commander-in-Chief, not Hillary ‘Rotten’ Clinton and all the ‘BS’ that comes with her.”
