Ouch! Hizbullah meets Hamas

While Netanyahu was still not finished with Mahmoud Abbas over embracing Hamas last month to form a PA unity government – Hamas started courting Israel’s most feared enemy – Hizbullah.

On November 1, 2017, Israeli daily Ha’aretz reported that Hamas’s new deputy leader Salah al-Aruri recently met with Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Islamic resistance Hizbullah in Lebanon.

It seems Salah al-Aruri wanted to get Nasrallah’s opinion on Hamas latest alliance with pro-US Fatah group ruling Israel-occupied West Bank and use his influence to make Syrian president Bashar al-Assad forgive Khalid Meshaal’s mistakes in the past.

Islamist Hamas and secularist Fatah resistance groups are 180-degree apart when it comes to the liberation of Zionist occupied Palestine. Hamas believes in armed resistance against Zionist entity while Fatah fools believe that Gandhi non-violence protests will convince the alien Jews to leave Palestine and go back to their European ancestral homes.

On November 2, a paranoid Israeli journalist, Charles Bybelezer claimed at The Media Line that Hamas, Hizbullah are seeking to strengthen ties against Israel.

Hamas former political guru Khaled Meshaal whom Israeli Mossad tried to kill in 1997 , abandoned his office in Damascus in February 2012 as result of the golden carrot he was offered by the Emir of Qatar. However, Hamas rulers in Gaza Strip never abandoned their relations with Hassan Nasrallah and Ayatullah Ali Khamenei.

In July 2017, the Judas goat in the White House spilled his ignorance of what’s going-on in the Middle East by telling his guest, anti-Hizbullah Lebanese prime minister Sa’ad Hariri: “Lebanon is on the front lines in the fight against ISIS, al-Qaeda and Hizbullah.” In reality, Hizbullah is part of Sa’ad Hariri’s government and Lebanese parliament. In addition, the only Christian president in the Middle East, Michel Naim Aoun of Lebanon has nothing but praise for Hizbullah.

Hizbullah are not using their weapons in internal politics. The only ensure our resistance against the state of Israel, which continue to occupy part of our territory and which refuses to apply UN resolutions regarding Palestinians’ right to return,” Aoun stated in an interview published French newspaper Le Figaro in September 2017. He also stated that Hizbullah will maintain its arms until Israel vacate all lands occupied since 1967 and stop bullying its neighbors.

Last month, Nicholas J. Rasmussen (Jew), US state department director counter-terrorism, ranted that US intelligence community (trained by Israeli Mossad) is “monitoring Hizbullah efforts to plot terror activities against United States.”

A good response to Rasmussen’s rant came from Sharmine Narwani, former senior associate at St. Antony’s College, Oxford University, and a political commentator on Middle East affairs. On November 3, 2017, in an article, entitled, Hizbullah is Not a Threat to America, she wrote: “Western-backed militants are in retreat, Bashar al-Assad remains president, Hizbullah has stretched its wings regionally, Israeli power is in decline, and Iran is on the rise. Not a pretty result for Washington’s multi-billion dollar investment in the Syrian conflict, especially if it was intended to change the map of the region to favor US interests.”

After debunking Israeli and Jewish Lobby’s lies against Hizbullah, Narwani said: “The Lebanese resistance was formed in reaction to Israel’s illegal invasion and occupation of Lebanon. As Kerry says, that’s where Hizbullah’s real fight is – with Israel. Washington should leave it to the two to duke it out. This is not America’s fight. Hizbullah has saved Lebanon – and much of the Levant – not once, but twice, from bloody aggressions. In fact, maybe I’ll take them out to lunch in Beirut and pay the bill. I daresay that could be regarded as a financial contribution to Hizbullah, and that would make me a terrorist, too.”

Israel Army: Lieberman lied about Hizbullah rockets

Israel army officials have refuted country’s Russian-born defense minister Avigdor Lieberman’s rant on Saturday accusing Lebanese Islamic resistance Hizbullah of launching 4 rockets at Jew settlers from Syrian side of Jewish occupied Golan Heights.

We are not talking about spillover. There was a personal instruction from Nasrallah to compartmentalize Assad and his regime from the execution of his (rocket) shooting with the goal of dragging us into Syrian mire,” said Lieberman told MKs of his Russian settlers’ party Yisrael Beiteinu.

The Zionist pig thought no one knows that Israel was involved in Syrian insurgency from day one.

However, Israeli military officials and several media outlets debunked Lieberman’s lie. Israel’s top independent Channel 2 television quoted a military official saying: “We have no information supporting Lieberman’s statement purporting that the Syrian shelling cell was run by Hizbullah personnel.”

When the army refused to back-up Lieberman’s accusation – according to the Times of Israel (October 23), Lieberman admitted that his accusation was based on his personal assessment and not on some army intelligence reporting.

Hizbullah responded with derision to Lieberman’s assertions, mocking the defense minister and highlighting the dissent from Israeli media outlets and military authorities.

Israeli leaders have made a habit of threatening successive Lebanese governments with a genocidal war unless Hizbullah is disarmed since Jewish army’s defeat in 2006 at the hands of Hizbullah fighters (watch below Lebanese Christian icon singer honors Hizbullah).

The Israeli occupation forces (IOF) seized 70 percent of the Golan Heights totaling about 1,300 square kilometers from Syria during its expansionist military campaign in 1967 and later annexed the strategic region in an illegal move backed by the United States.

On October 25, Ben Caspit posted at Israel’s online propaganda website Al-Monitor, saying: “Behind these claims is growing criticism of the policies pursued by Liberman and Netanyahu on all matters concerning the northern front. This criticism has been kept behind closed doors for the past few weeks. Security officials, military officers and occasionally even ministers expressed their discomfort with Israel’s light trigger finger when it comes to military activity in Syria. They are even more uneasy about the fact that Israel is abandoning its traditional silence on the matter. The government is now quick to take responsibility for bombing runs and other military actions, with the prime minister himself sometimes issuing the statements.”

Israel faces another defeat against Hizbullah

Israeli leaders don’t know how to whitewash Jewish army’s three humiliations (2000, 2006, 2017) at the hands of Lebanese Islamic resistance Hizbullah except threatening six million Lebanese with a new genocidal war rhetoric.

Israeli leaders are in panic that without destroying Hizbullah Israel cannot break-up the Axis of Resistance (Iran-Syria-Hizbullah-Iraq) even with the help of their stooges ruling in Washington, London and Riyadh.

The recent failure of Israel’s six-year proxy war in Syria has put Zionists’ dream of the Greater Israel on hold once again.

How good is Israel’s 6th war on Lebanon threats? A 2010 study by Pentagon’s J-8 directorate concluded that Jewish army cannot win a future war with Lebanon unless it’s willing to put five Israeli soldiers against one Hizbullah fighter on ground.

On June 30, 2017, Asher Kaufman wrote at Israeli online site +972 magazine that Israeli aid to rebels fighting Assad regime makes a new war between Israeli army and Hizbullah inevitable. He claimed that the only way Israel could avoid its new war with Hizbullah – “First, lessening its hawkish rhetoric is a simple and necessary step. Second, limiting aid to Syrians on the border to humanitarian cases only may also decrease the potential for a new war.”

Lebanon-based US-Christian professor Franklin Lamb (Oxford University) who often writes about Hizbullah, Christian and Palestinian communities in Lebanon, in his latest article, claims that Israel Faces ‘Catastrophic Defeat’ If Next Hizbullah War Extends Ten Day.

Hizbullah fighters have a history of disciplined and skilled high-risk fighting techniques despite paying a high “martyrs” price. And they are preparing, expecting, preferring and intending to pursue a longer war. The longer the better for many reasons. One reason is that both sides are acutely aware that a drawn out war with Hizbullah saturating Israel with approximately 2000 rockets daily will cause nearly unimaginable damage to Israel’s military bases, infrastructure, civilian neighborhoods and population. And unless there is a hastily arranged enforceable ceasefire the war will not end even when there is not a lot left of Hizbullah neighborhoods as occurred in 2006. Or of many of Israel’s and Lebanon’s – unless mass public protests and demonstrations flood Israel’s streets and swarm Parliament because the UN Security Council will likely be paralyzed as unfortunately has become its recent fate,” says Dr. Lamb.

For a few reasons Israel has not, and likely will not succeed in curtailing a large portion of Iran’s arms shipments to Hizbullah which moves them from Syria to where they want to position or store them around Lebanon or according to source in Daraa, South Syria near the Israeli occupied Golan Heights. A significant reason Israel cannot stop the shipments is the 200 miles Lebanon-Syria sieve-like border created and maintained  by centuries of locals smuggling just about anything both ways from literally hundreds of tree covered and mountainous routes traversing the borders,” adds Dr. Lamb.

In October 2013, Israeli Maj. Gen. (ret) Giora Eiland admitted that Israel cannot defeat Hizbullah.

Watch: IOF defeat Hizbullah in a ‘simulated war’

On September 21, Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported that Israel Occupation Force (IOF) claimed a ‘convincing victory’ over Lebanese Islamic resistance fighters in a massive drill conducted by its Northern Command last week (watch video below).

This corps exercise is the first of its kind in 20 years. It comes after the recent defeat of Israel’s proxy war in Syria and Lebanon. Thousands of Israeli military personnel from army, air force and navy took part in the 10-day long drill. Israel’s impressive Iron Dome aka Dumb Dome was also tested to counter Hizbullah rockets.

The drill was to show Israel’s military strength, built by the US, Germany and France, in order to scare Hizbullah and its Iranian and Syrian allies.

One must laud IOF’s self-denial as it has lost all three wars it fought against Hizbullah since late 1980s.

For years, senior officers and strategy experts have been agonizing over whether the IDF’s equipment and combat methods are suited to meet the new challenge posed by organizations like Hezbollah in Lebanon (and, to a lesser extent, Hamas in Gaza) now that the threat of facing the armies of some neighboring countries has declined. This year, a new question has been added: Given the clear advantage the Assad regime has established in the Syrian civil war, don’t these new regional circumstances require Israel to modify its way of thinking about potential future conflicts?,” wrote Amos Harel.

However, Amos Harel, was honest to admit that IOF might have defeated Hizbullah in a military drill on its own choice of terrain and command – but in a real war with Hizbullah, it might not have those advantages.

It’s much easier to declare victory in an exercise than in a war, whereas the direction in which things develop at the moment of truth is to a large extent dependent on the dialogue between the general staff and the political echelon,” said Harel.

Hizbullah is aware of the Israeli military’s preparations for the exercise and is expected to do its utmost to analyze Israel’s plans and assess its capabilities. Despite the soothing messages emerging from Israel, which stress that this is no more than a drill, one can assume that regional anxieties will rise over the coming 10 days,” added Harel.

Gen. (ret) Giora Eiland who served as national security adviser to former prime ministers Gen. Ariel Sharon and Gen. Ehud Barak told Israel Radio in December 2010: “Israel doesn’t know how to beat Hizbullah. Therefore a war waged only as Israel-versus-Hizbullah might yield better damage on Hizbullah, but Hizbullah would inflict far worse damage on the Israeli home front than it did in 2006.”

However, Netanyahu, his ministers and Generals have not learned lessons from their past military humiliations. They have not stopped threatening successive Lebanese governments with total devastation of Lebanon unless it disarm Hizbullah. However, every time IOF did that – Hizbullah came out more stronger in combating Israeli army and popular among Lebanese population.

Last week, in an interview with French daily Le Monde, Lebanese prime minister Sa’ad Hariri rebuked Netanyahu’s claim that Hizbullah controls Lebanon.

The Israelis say Hizbullah controls Lebanon, and that is not true. Hizbullah is present. It’s in the government and it has support in the country. But this doesn’t mean Hizbullah controls all of Lebanon,” he said.

Saudi-born Sa’ad Hariri has close family ties with Saudi ‘royals’. He recently visited Riyadh and Washington but hasn’t visited Iran since 2010.

Hizbullah fighters in Syria make Israel nervous

Israeli media has reported that hundreds of Hizbullah fighters backed by Syrian Army have taken positions within reach of Israel occupied oil-rich Golan Heights, which is making Zionist regime very nervous.

In July 2017, Netanyahu drew three redlines (David Makovsky, Politico, July 14) during cabinet meeting; 1) have to keep Iran and Hizbullah away from Israel’s Golan Heights border, 2) must prevent the establishment of an Iranian military presence in Syria as a whole, and 3) must block any attempt by Hizbullah to acquire precision weapons.

Since then Zionist regime churned the lies that Syrian president Bashar al-Assad, an ally of Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah had allowed Hizbullah to build a military base in al-Qusayr, a Syrian town near Lebanese border – to stockpile weapons for the Lebanese military personnel and Hizbullah fighters who are fighting along Syrian army.

On September 7, Krishnadev Calamur whined at the Jew Atlantic that the recent defeat of anti-Assad mercenaries, “Israel finds itself in a precarious position as the Syrian war grinds on: The United States, its main global ally, has struck a deal with Russia, Syria’s main benefactor, on a cease-fire that is mostly holding; Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is now more in control of his country than at any point since the war began more than five years ago; and Iran, which Israel views as an existential threat, and Hezbollah, which it battled for years in Lebanon, have emerged even stronger than they were before the conflict began.”

The failure of Netanyahu’s six-year-old regime change in Syria has put him in panic.

On September 15, Amos Harel reported at Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz that Netanyahu had demanded a “80km (50 miles) buffer but Russian let Iranian forces and Hizbullah fighters approach with 2 km Israeli border along the Golan Heights.”

On September 8, Alastair Crooke, former British diplomat wrote: “Despite last-ditch efforts by Israel and its allies to salvage the regime change project in Syria, the looming defeat of the Western-backed jihadists marks a turning point in the modern Middle East.”

Hizbullah has successfully blocked the Zionist dream of Eretz Yisrael (greater Israel). Since the 2006 defeat Israeli Generals have come to the conclusion that Hizbullah cannot be defeated by conventional warfare. Israel which possesses several hundred nuclear bombs, is afraid to use them against Hizbullah as the radiation would wipe out more than half of Israeli population. That’s why Netanyahu wants Washington and Saudi Wahhabis to do Israel’s dirty work.

Hizbullah which is the product of Israeli invasion and occupation of South Lebanon in the 1980s, has inflicted military humiliations on Jewish army in Lebanon in 2000 and 2006 – and recently in Syria. Initially it began as a Shi’ite humanitarian group – but later it established an armed wing to fight Jewish occupation of Southern Lebanon. In 2005 Hizbullah entered country’s politics and currently lead the opposition group in the parliament. After its victory in the 2006 Israeli invasion, it has earned support from Lebanese Christians and Druze communities in addition to Sunni Hamas.

Lebanon appeared on Zionist Jewish hit list in 1919, when the World Zionist Congress delegation at the Paris Peace Conference said the Lebanese Litani River, Golan Heights and Jordan Valley (West Bank), were essential for the necessary economic foundation of the new state for Jews. It must have the control of Arab rivers and headwaters.

Israel: Russia supports Hizbullah

With the defeat of ISIS terrorists in Syria, Israel’s obsession with Iran has turned into a nightmare. Netanyahu has cried WOLF so many years that during his recent meetings with Russian president Vladimir Putin and US president Donald Trump, he failed to scare his hosts of Iranian threat to either Russia or United States.

Last year, Times of Israel had claimed that Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah was receiving long-range missiles, laser-guided rockets and other sophisticated weaponry directly from Russia in Syria, and is free to use that weaponry against Israel if it so chooses.

On September 6, 2017, Barak Ravid claimed at Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz that “days after Putin-Netanyahu meeting in Sochi last month, Russia threatened to veto anti-Hizbullah move led by Israel and the US at United Nations.”

The so-called Russian threat came during the extension of the United Nations peacekeepers in Southern Lebanon (UNIFIL) mission for another year. Both the US and Israel asked more powers for UNIFIL to check Hizbullah activities along the Sheba’a Farms, Lebanese territory occupied by the Zionist entity since 1967. Lebanon rejects any mention of Hizbullah in its military activities along Lebanon-Israel-Syria border.

On June 16, 2016, Israeli propaganda website Algemeiner reported that Putin had promised Netanyahu during their meeting in Moscow that if Barack Obama didn’t veto anti-Israel resolution at the UNSC – he would do it. Washington has used 37 times its veto power to protect the Zionist entity at the UNSC.

The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) was created on the behest of United States in 1978 to help Jew army to withdraw from Southern Lebanon and replaced by the US-funded UNIFIL force. The Israeli invasion and occupation of Lebanon forced Shi’ite majority in South Lebanon to establish Hizbullah humanitarian organization – later turned into armed resistance against Jew occupation force and its local Christian proxy Phalangist militia – the butcher of Sabra and Shatila Palestinian refugee camps in 1982. Since its armed resistance in mid 1980s, Hizbullah fighters have defeated Jewish army three times – 2000, 2006 and 2017.

Sharmine Narwani, a renowned commentary writer and political analyst on Middle East conflicts, posted an article at American Conservative (September 6, 2017), a publication of Jew millionaire Ron Unz. She blogs here.

Events on Israel’s western, northern and eastern borders have suddenly – in a few short weeks – scuttled the geopolitical balance that once favored Tel Aviv. Just a few years ago, Syria was disintegrating, Iraq was fragmenting, Lebanon was over-extended, and Gaza struggled alone,” she said.

Today, the likelihood of Iran enjoying a contiguous land corridor between its borders and the occupied Golan territory is greater than ever before. The Resistance Axis has gained tremendous military experience in the past six years in Syria, Iraq, and Lebanon—and most importantly, has done so by coordinating troops, intelligence and battle plans from a single command center, for the first time in its history as an alliance. Furthermore, this axis now enjoys international political cover from two permanent UN Security Council members, Russia and China. The Russians now have significant military experience alongside three members of this axis, and the Chinese are eager to expand their economic vision into those West Asian states, with Iran as a key hub for oil and gas pipelines,” she adds.

As these countries move forward to extinguish regional terrorism and reconstruct their infrastructure and societies, the Israelis will be left out in the cold. But while Israel’s options dwindle, its military plans seem to keep getting more attention. It’s the one option – the stick – that the Israelis gravitate to most easily, and a war of aggression against Lebanon and Gaza, or strikes against Syria, are not out of the question,” she said.

Hizbullah 3: Israel 0

Last month, Israel suffered its third military defeat at the hands of Lebanese Islamic Resistance Hizbullah. The earlier defeats were in 2006 and 2000.

On Monday, Reuters reported that 300 fighters belonging to Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, a splinter rebel group of the US-Israel created ISIS and about 3,000 Syrian refugees left Lebanon under the deal that followed attack by Hizbullah on insurgent position last month.

There are nearly one million Syrian refugees who were able to escape the US-Israel trained and funded barbarians during the last six years. Lebanon is home to over 300,000 Palestinian refugees since the 1980 who don’t have rights enjoyed by Lebanese Arab citizens. These refugees make almost 17% of country’s total population of six millions.

Vanessa Beeley, Associate Editor of the 21st Century Wire commented about Hizbullah achievements against ISIS as below:

“This is a momentous victory for the Resistance against the NATO and Gulf state terrorists. The black flags have been torn down in Arsal and the flags of Hizbullah, Lebanon and Syria are flying side by side as a symbol of the unity of anti-imperialist, anti-Zionist forces in the region. The heroes who gave their lives for this hard-won victory will always be remembered and honored by those whose lives and culture had been under threat from the malevolent forces of extremism and terrorism,” she said.

Hizbullah has both friends and enemies among country’s politician. Lebanon’s Christian president Gen (ret) Michel Naim Aoun considers Hizbullah as the Defender of Lebanon while country’s prime minister Saad Hariri fears Hizbullah and Syrian president Bashar al-Assad like the Israeli leaders.

On July 26, 2017, Reuters reported: “Standing beside Hariri in the White House Rose Garden, Trump said Hizbullah is a threat to Lebanon from within. He called the powerful Shi’ite Muslim group a “menace” to the Lebanese people and to the entire region. The lawmakers introduced legislation last week seeking to increase sanctions on Hizbullah by further restricting its ability to raise money and recruit and increasing pressure on banks that do business with it.”

Born in Saudi Arabia (he holds both KSA and Lebanese citizenships), Sa’ad Hariri stood still, as Judas Goat Trump unleashed derogatory rhetoric against the only group in Lebanon which is capable of providing social services to all of its citizens, and which heroically defended Lebanon during the Israeli invasions.
