“Neither Iran nor Hizbullah have any remotely credible reason for their enmity of Israel today – yet they are engaged in an implacable campaign of deadly hatred animated by their version of radical Islam. Hizbullah additionally has to explain to the Lebanese population it claims to represent why it has been killing Muslims in Syria at a furious pace. The best way to close this credibility gap is to attack Israel. Both Hizbullah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah’s rhetoric, and his terrorist operatives’ actions on the border with Israel confirm this,” wrote the morons.
The general knowledge of the two military idiots makes me laugh. The “new looming war on Lebanon” will be fourth and not “third”. In the past Israel had invaded Lebanon in 1975, 1982, and 2006. However, this time it will be Israel’s third defeat at the hands of Hizbullah which defeated Jewish army in 2000 and 2006 in the past.
Hizbullah never claimed to represent Lebanese population which consists of Sunnis, Shi’ites, Christians, Druze and Jews. However, a great majority of Lebanese population and country’s Christian presidents has acknowledged Hizbullah as the “Defender of Lebanon against Israel“. Even former Israeli prime minister Gen. Ehud Barak called Hizbullah, “Lebanon’s real army“.
Based on a study from Tel-Hai University located in north of Israel, more than 80% of Israelis trust Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and the others trust their own leaders.
Hizbullah enmity toward the Zionist entity is based on Lebanon being at war with Israel since 1975. Furthermore, Israel is still occupying Lebanon’s Sheba’a Farms.
Israeli leaders have been campaigning for a regime change in Tehran since Israel’s embassy was closed in 1979. Both Imam Khomeini and the current Spiritual Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei consider Israel being a Western colonial plot, which needs to be removed from the Muslim Heartland.
I dare to ask, why Israel which has a stockpile of 400 nuclear bombs, hesitate to attack non-nuclear Iran instead of begging the US to wash its dirty laundry?
I’m at loss to understand how American sanctions could harm Hizbullah, which doesn’t receive financial aid from foreign government; doesn’t have bank accounts in the US or Switzerland or real-state investment in the US, UK or Monte Carlo. Hizbullah’s armed wing is not a conventional army – thus it doesn’t need to buy F16s, tanks, submarines or helicopters from the West, Russia or China. Hizbullah fighters use home-made rockets, guns and Shi’ite concept of martyrdom to defeat Israeli army and the pro-Israel Christian, Kurd Jews and Wahhabi militants in the region.
