"Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we're Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth '. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words." -- Columnist Burt Prelutsky, Los Angeles Times

Israel attacked and destroyed the home of the Iranian ambassador to Syria, killing two Iranian generals and 9 others. Israel has been demanding war against Iran since 1988 claiming they have a secret nuclear weapons project which is nonexistent according to US intelligence reports.

Israel cannot militarily defeat either Hamas or Hezbollah. They have been committed nonstop genocidal atrocities in Gaza angering 90% the world’s 1.9 billion Muslims though the richest people in that Muslim world are trying to stay out of the conflict.

The United States and the United Kingdom refused to discuss a draft statement of the UN Security Council proposed by Russia on Israel’s attack on the Iranian consulate in Damascus, Russian Deputy Ambassador to the UN Dmitry Polyansky said on Wednesday.

On Monday, Iran said that Israeli warplanes struck the Iranian embassy in Syria, killing seven military advisers, including two generals. On Tuesday, Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei vowed revenge.

As the US and its allies have continuously allowed Israel to "cross all red lines" in the past, it should be no surprise that it attacked an Iranian consulate in Damascus, Dr. Seyed Mohammad Marandi told Sputnik’s The Critical Hour on Tuesday.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) has begun to take defensive measures in anticipation of a direct Iranian strike against Israeli territory in response to the April 1 Israeli attack on the Iranian embassy in the Syrian capital, Damascus.

At least 13 people were killed in the strike in which, according to Tehran’s ambassador, Israeli F-35 stealth fighter jets fired six missiles that leveled the five-story consular building adjacent to the embassy.

The Biden administration is set to supply Israel with some 50 American-made F-15 fighter jets worth $18 billion and approve the shipment of another "large" supply of missiles and precision-guided munitions kits, CNN reports. 

Axios reported on Monday that the US told Iran it had no involvement or advanced knowledge of the Israeli airstrike that targeted a consulate building next to the Iranian embassy in Damascus, Syria.

An Israeli airstrike reportedly killed Iran’s senior commander in Damascus, Syria.

Mohammed Reza Zahedi, Iran’s top general in the Quds Force of the IRGC, was killed along with his lieutenant and several other high-ranking officers, according to Reuters.

The Iranian consulate was reportedly flattened in the airstrike.

Hezbollah, a Lebanese terrorist group that acts as Iran’s proxy in Syria and the surrounding region, vowed revenge.

An Israeli air strike on an Iranian diplomatic building in Damascus on April 1 killed a brigadier general in the elite Quds Force of the country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps Mohammad Reza Zahedi, who had played a central role in overseeing and supporting paramilitary operations in support of the Syrian state as well as coordination with the Lebanese militia group Hezbollah.

Update(1838ET): Monitors cited in AFP report the death toll from Monday's Israeli air strike on the Iranian embassy complex in Damascus has risen to 11. "The death toll from the Israeli strikes on the Iranian embassy annex has risen to 11: eight Iranians, two Syrians and one Lebanese -- all of them fighters, none of them civilians," AFP quoted the war monitor as saying.
