Early this month, an American judge ruled North Korea and the Islamic Republic liable for missile attacks by Lebanese Islamic resistance Hizbullah in 2006 which resulted in a crushing military blow to Jewish army.
This week, British newspaper The Telegraph reported that Hamas is purchasing rockets from North Korea to make-up its depleting stocks of arms for the expected long war with the Jewish army.
“North Korea is an obvious place to seek supplies because Pyongyang already has close ties with a number of militant Islamist groups in the Middle East,” claimed the paper. One wonders why Hamas has abundant its next-door allies, Hizbullah, Syria and Iran which had been accused of arming and training Hamas and Islamic Jihad fighters for a decade by Israel and Jewish lobby groups.
In April 2014, Israel’s military propaganda website DEBKAfile claimed the CIA was having secret meetings with Hizbullah officials, which was a try to give an impression that even the “Israeli poodles” in Washington could be ready to provide arms to Hizbullah and Hamas to fight the Jewish army.
On July 30, 2014, The Jerusalem Post claimed that Hamas leader No.2, Cairo-based Moussa Abu Marzouk invited Hizbullah to join the fight against Israel by opening a new front along Lebanon-Israel border. The ‘six million’ question is why Hamas leader would ask foreign military help when it is winning the war on several fronts.
On July 25, 2014, Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah while addressing a huge Al-Quds rally, had pledged Resistance’s continuous support for Hamas.
I tend to agree with Lebanese academic, writer and author of 2001 book Hizbullah: Politics and Religion, Amal Sa’ad-Ghorayeb PhD (born to a Christian mother and Muslim father), who posted her following comment on Hamas invitation to Hizbullah.
“Given the warming of relation between Hamas and Hizbullah, an latter’s ongoing military assistance an coordination with Hamas and other Palestinian factions, it’s unlikely that Moussa Abu Marzouk’s comment was meant to be a divisive or intended to shame Hizbullah which has never actually intervened militarily in Palestine. A more likely explanation for his quote is that it is a psychological warfare against Israel which would surely be threatened by the prospect of its northern front and possibly Golan front being activated,” says Sa’ad-Ghorayeb.
Back in 2009 she wrote that Hizbullah would militarily intervene if Hamas’ military capacity were considerably weakened, the resistance emasculated and the Palestinian people left without protection. “It doesn’t seem as though we are anywhere near that stage yet, but, if Hamas fails to secure a lifting of the siege and the Sisi regime and its Saudi backers make it impossible for the resistance to replenish its rocket supply, then I think Hizbullah would be forced to step in. Hamas cannot be left without an ongoing flow of weapons; if they dry up then we are faced with the specter of a wider regional war, where Hizbullah will have to fight on 3 fronts simultaneously, especially considering ISIS and Jabhit al Nusra will indirectly collaborate with the Zionists by striking the Resistance and its supporters. But liberating Palestine, rather than Lebanon, is not just Hizbullah’s priority, it is its raison d’etre….” she said.
Finally, a gem from Jonathan Tobin at AJC’s Commentary Magazine: “John Kerry is helping Hamas to win the war.”
