MEANWHILE, ON A CONTINENT FAR AWAY

Attacks on Israel and One on an Arms Factory in Sudan

Sudanese official claims that four Israeli aircraft conducted a strike on their arms factory.

There are multiple reasons why now was probably a good time to take out the Iranian arms factory south of Khartoum.  I emphasize that I do not think this action means an Israeli strike on Iran is imminent.  Rather, the factory at Yarmouk was a key node in the Iran-Hamas-Hezbollah network, and sooner or later, it had to go.  Considering how many years arms have been coming from this factory to engorge Hamas, the choice of when to do it has actually come “later” rather than “sooner.”  Assuming Israel did this, she is shaping her security environment as best she can for the challenges to come.

    The Sudanese regime doesn't only massacre non-Muslims, it massacres Muslims! Remember Darfur! This raid probably saved lives and not just of Jews. And Omar al-Bashir is the only head of state to be indicted by the International Criminal Court — for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide. Predictably, the League of Arab States, Russia, and China opposed the indictment — they don't want to risk facing such prosecutions themselves! (And thanks to Mitt Romney for his recent change of position, supporting ICC prosecution Ahmadinejad.)

  2. Israel demies it, but that doesn't mean they didn't. Isael does protect their citizens , soldiers and diplomats and will do whatever is necessary to protect Jewish lives! Sad but true that Egypt under the MB is slowly becoming a problem, with their desire for a Islamic Caliphate, which Sudan would be part of.

  3. Myriam Obadia says:

    Israel may have done it, but they aren't the only ones with the capabilities and the incentive to strike an Iranian weapon factory in Sudan. The USA, Saudi Arabia, The Emirates, Barain, Kuweit, etc. are also leery of what Sudan and Iran may prepare together.

    Good job Hebrews! that's the way it should work.
