Hezbollah on the Move
In an earlier post “Syria is Preparing for War” I wrote that Syria was in the midst of moving military equipment into position for an attack against Israel.
This week Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said his group possesses an arsenal of 33,000 rockets, some of which can reach all of Israel, including Tel Aviv.
“We could absolutely reach any corner and any point in occupied Palestine (Israel).”
The Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev said, “The international community must hold accountable those governments, namely Syria and Iran, who by supplying weapons to Hezbollah are deliberately trying to undermine the United Nations, the Lebanese government and peace and stability in the region.”
The one mistake Israel could not afford has been allowed to happen. The present liberal Israeli leadership did not plan or allow for victory during last years war against Hezbollah. Now it has come back to haunt them. A lesson that many in the rest of world could learn from.
The question remains, is Israel going to sit back and wait for these rockets to begin raining down on their population or will they view recent actions as enough provocation to attack first?
