#1 Maybe I need more coffee, but I don't see how the use of an Israeli air defense system affects the use of S-300s in Syria.

#4 ...TRANSLATION: "Ummm, guys - you remember that S-300 system we sold you? Well, this is what we're going to blame when you figure out the damn thing doesn't work. Dos vidanya, and we'll see you around...
Oh, and PS - the S-400 might be problematic, too. Just sayin'..."

#5 Alternate Translation: The Israeli SAM network can shut down all air flights over Syria if they want to ...and... there is nothing the S-300 can do to stop this. Thinking of using a S-300 to stop an Arrow-3 is nonsense on steroids™ .
