Israeli planes bomb Damascus, Syria without reprisals

 As Israel has bombed two sites within Damascus, Syria (article here) I am surprised that Iran and Syria haven't responded with violence, leading me to the conclusion that Israel seems:

1. to be able to attack with impunity any country near them
2. to potentially be trying to draw Iran or Syria into a larger war so that they can bring American support
3. to isolate Gaza further from Hezbollah support in Syria and Lebanon

As the civil war in Syria has been raging for over a year now, the Israeli line that they are protecting themselves through preemptive attack rings hollow since not once has the instability within Syrian borders spilled over into Israel despite Israeli control of the Syrian Golan Heights.

Elsewhere, the "Arab Spring" seems to have stalled and become an Arab Autumn or Fall... as one regime after another seems to falter with misguided steps.
