Former U.S. Ambassador Dennis Ross has written a piece in The New Republic entitled WHAT ISRAEL GAINED BY BOMBING SYRIA.

In it he argues that the Israelis played it smartly by not talking about its recent military strike against a target in northern Syria.

"In fact, had Israel taken credit for the raid, Arab states would have felt duty-bound to condemn it, Israel's resort to force, and its unilateral effort to impose its will once again."

Also smart in that it saved the Israelis some bad press from the usual suspects who normally go into critical overdrive on such news but this time they have no idea how to respond!
