Israel isn’t about to let itself be bullied into extinction by militant Islamists who disagree with their right to exist and it’s sure as heck not about to let the morons at the UN stop it from defending itself.
The global stage looks an awful lot like a powder keg right now, with any one thing ready to set it off. It’s no wonder Israel isn’t sticking to its usual tactic of not attacking until they have been hit first.
Regional intelligence sources confirmed an Israeli strike on an arms supply hub being operated by terrorist group, Hezbollah. These weapons were allegedly sent from Iran and were being transported by cargo planes.
While Israeli officials do not usually give statements on these types of actions, Intelligence Minister Israel Katz appeared to confirm the country’s involvement.
“The incident in Syria corresponds completely with Israel’s policy to act to prevent Iran’s smuggling of advanced weapons via Syria to Hezbollah,” he said. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had “said that whenever we receive intelligence that indicates an intention to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah, we will act”, he added.
Video of the attack – carried on Lebanese TV and social media – appears to show a fire breaking out after the pre-dawn strike, insinuating that a weapons storage or fuel source was hit.
For the most part, Israel has attempted to stay out of the war in Syria, with two exceptions:
[A]ny supply of advanced weaponry to Hezbollah, and the establishment of “launch sites” for attacks on Israel from the Golan Heights region.”
Now we have to wait and wonder what Iran’s course of retaliation is going to be. You know that they won’t just absorb this hit without attempting to strike back in some sort of way.
In Right Wing News owner John Hawkins’ new book, 101 Things All Young Adults Should Know, he discusses the wisdom behind the phrase, “be nice until it’s time to not be nice.” Israel has tried being nice for way too long and now they’re finally reaching the point where it’s time to not be nice. I can’t say I blame them. When there are people who want to wipe you off of the map simply for existing, you need to do whatever it takes to protect yourself and your people.
