Hezbollah Chief is Terrified of ISIS

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Hezbollah terror chief Hassan Nasrallah is getting very scared of Islamic State’s advances.

In a speech he gave over the weekend, Nasrallah called on everyone in Lebanon and in the region (presumably excluding Israel) to fight Islamic State.

Nasrallah said Islamic State is as evil as Israel, while claiming that the nations of the region have already beaten Israel and the United States.

Nasrallah said that the US-led coalition cannot protect anyone in Lebanon, Syria or Iraq from Islamic State.

We can only hope that the Islamic State terrorists and the Hezbollah terrorists keep each other very busy for a long time.

5 Senior Hezbollah Field Commanders Killed in Qalamoun Battle

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

The Battle of Qalamoun began yesterday, leaving dozens killed on both sides, in fighting between Hezbollah vs. Jabhat al-Nusra forces and the Syrian Free Army, according to Arab sources.

Hezbollah chief, Hassan Nasrallah, talked about this upcoming, strategically important battle at the beginning of the year.

Qalamoun is located along the Syrian-Lebanon border.

During the battle between Hezbollah terrorists and Syrian Jabhat al-Nusra forces on Tuesday, 5 senior Hezbollah field commanders were killed.

The Qalamoun Battle

The Qalamoun Battle

Al-Nusra has been avoiding fighting in Qalamoun until now, in part, because snow on the ground made it battle conditions difficult, though Al-Nusra’s major concern is that the Qalamoun battles against Hezbollah will draw away resources from their ongoing and nearby battles against Islamic State, which they consider a higher priority at the moment.

Last week, Hassan Nasrallah said that the survival of Bashar Assad’s regime is critical for Hezbollah’s own continued existence.

But Nasrallah also said that Assad will never regain full control over Syria.

Jabhat al-Nusra is part of Al-Quida, while Hezbollah are Iranian proxies who support the Assad regime.

Israel Quietly Acknowledges Accidental Death of Spanish UNIFIL Soldier

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

An Israeli investigator has confirmed that it was Israeli fire that accidentally killed a Spanish peacekeeper with the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) in January during a shootout with Hezbollah.

Corporal Francisco Javier Soria Toledano died after being hit in a barrage aimed at Hezbollah by Israel. The force missed and struck the UNIFIL soldier instead.

The gunfire followed an unprovoked cross-border attack with anti-tank missiles fired by Hezbollah terrorists in Lebanon at Israeli military personnel and civilians about seven kilometers from the border, inside Israel. Two Israeli soldiers were killed instantly and several other people were seriously wounded. A civilian home in a nearby Druze village was destroyed in the multi-pronged attack as well.

Nevertheless, Spain’s UN ambassador blamed Israel, and the United Nations Security Council was persuaded to condemn the killing of the UNIFIL soldier, implying his death was caused by Israel alone even though that was obviously not the case.

It was the most serious exchange of gunfire between Israel and Hezbollah since the 2006 Second Lebanon War. Israel’s Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu made a point of warning Hezbollah’s secretary-general Hassan Nasrallah on public media to “look at Gaza” before he considered his next step and decided whether to proceed with more violence or to cease the attacks.

According to a UN diplomat, Israel has submitted an apology privately to Spain, but there has been no public admission of responsibility. Jerusalem has made it clear the death was accidental, resulting from the deliberate attack on Israel by Hezbollah.

Nasrallah is Angry As Iran’s Isolation Grows

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

Iran’s puppet in Lebanon, Hezbollah chieftain Hassan Nasrallah, is angry.

He’s angry at Saudi Arabia for attacking the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels, trying to prevent Iran from taking over Yemen.

He’s angry at Palestinian Authority chieftain Mahmoud Abbas, who openly expressed support for Saudi Arabia.

He hasn’t said anything yet about Hamas, but they also expressed support for Yemen and the Saudi coalition.

As Iran makes its way to becoming the North Korea of the Middle East, Nasrallah is angry that Iran isn’t receiving support from his fellow anti-Israel terrorist groups.

But it makes sense, the Middle East is breaking back down into its traditional battle lines.

The Iranian Shi’ites and the Hezbollah Shi’ites are fighting against the Syrian citizens, who are mostly Sunnis.

Hamas and Fatah (Palestinian Authority) are mostly Sunnis, and they probably aren’t thrilled their fellow Sunnis are being killed by Shi’ites.

And as much as all the Muslim groups hate Israel, they hate each other even more.

So now, when the expansionist Islamic Republic of Iran starts openly trying to create their Shi’ite hegemony in the Middle East, backed by nuclear weapons, alliances will naturally shift from the convenient enemy (Israel) to the real enemy (their fellow Muslims).

Nasrallah is angry. But he shouldn’t be.

He’s just been locked in his bomb shelter so long he’s forgotten what the real world really about.

IDF Tightens Security in Northern Israel

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz has canceled his planned trip to a NATO conference in Europe, only a few hours away.

Israel’s security on the northern border has also been tightened following what was feared to be a terrorist infiltration Wednesday evening (Jan 21.)

Kibbutz security teams from Metulla to Malkiya combed the Ramim mountain range around 6 pm local time after five suspects were thought to have been spotted. Residents of communities in the area remained inside. Roads were sealed and IDF troops were sent to the area as well.

But after searching the area thoroughly, the IDF Spokesperson announced that no infiltration had occurred. Nevertheless, he asked residents to remain in their homes.

Tensions are rising in the wake of an attack on a Hezbollah convoy in Syria that killed six terrorists – including three commanders – and six members of the elite Iranian Revolutionary Guards. Among the Iranian dead was a general.

The helicopter air strike, which fired two missiles, has been attributed to Israel although there has been no confirmation by the IDF.

South of Israel, the Hamas terrorist organization is working hard to figure out how to get in on the action and create another two-front war, as it did with Hezbollah in 2006.

Elusive Gaza-based Hamas military commander Mohammed Deif wrote a condolence letter to Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah commiserating over the recent attack.

“All of the forces of resistance must band together and unite against the Zionist enemy and its accomplices,” Deif reportedly wrote in the letter, Reuters reported. It was believed last summer that Deif had been eliminated by the IDF during its counter terror Operation Protective Edge, but despite conflicting reports Hamas has insisted since that day that Deif is still alive.

Likewise, Gaza’s de facto Hamas prime minister Ismail Haniyeh also sent a letter to Nasrallah expressing his “deepest condolences,” according to Hezbollah-linked Al Manar TV. Haniyeh’s sorrow was to be conveyed to the “families of martyrs.”

Iran, which generously funds and equips both terrorist groups, has meanwhile warned Israel that “ruinous thunderbolts” await in the future.

The U.S. State Department has not been unmindful of these developments: a travel warning has been issued barring American foreign service personnel from approaching the northern borders with Lebanon and Syria. Nor can American public servants use public transportation anywhere in Israel at this time.

The terror stabbing attack Wednesday (Jan. 20) by a Palestinian Authority Arab man on a public bus in Tel Aviv has only exacerbated American administration fears about what lies ahead.

“Because of concerns about security on Israel’s northern borders, U.S. Government personnel are currently required to obtain advance approval if they wish to travel within 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers) of the Lebanon border, or travel on or east of Route 98 in the Golan Heights,” the U.S. Embassy alert reads. Visitors from the United States have also been advised not to use public transportation in Israel.

Hezbollah Infiltrated by Israeli Mossad Spy Agency

Friday, January 16th, 2015

It’s taken weeks but Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah has been forced to acknowledge that Israel has penetrated his terror organization.

Lebanese media reported a number of weeks ago that an operative in charge of Hezbollah’s ‘foreign operations’ was discovered to be a spy for the Mossad, Israel’s international intelligence agency.

Former IDF general Yaakov Amidror, an official with Israeli military intelligence, told Reuters the arrest shows Hezbollah’s air of “impenetrability is not founded in fact.”

Sources close to the group identified the alleged spy as a man named Mohammad Shawraba, said to have joined the terror organization in his youth when the group first was getting started. Shawraba participated in attacks against the IDF in southern Lebanon before its withdrawal in 2000.

A Lebanese official said Shawraba is a wealthy businessman who travels between Spain and Italy. “He worked for the Mossad for several years and played a role in foiling attempts to get revenge for [the death of second-in-command Imad] Mughniyeh. He exposed several people who were planning to avenge his death.”

The man was actually detained five months ago, according to an interview with Nasrallah on Al Mayadeen television in Lebanon.

“For me, this is a breach and should not happen,” Nasrallah said, “but if it happens then it is part of the battle. It is part of the war between us and Israel.”  The name of the infiltrator was not revealed in the interview, and Nasrallah made an effort to minimize his importance within the organization.  “He confessed about all the information he has given and the extent of his cooperation,” he told the interviewer.

Nasrallah added that the arrest shows Hezbollah has remained vigilant throughout the 32 years of its struggle against Israel.

It is clear that others are not taking the matter so lightly, particularly in Lebanon. A senior government official told Reuters, “This is considered one of the most dangerous breaches in the ranks of Hezbollah, which operates in a secretive manner. But it will not pose any threat to the group,” he said.

The Iranian-backed Hezbollah terror group has been fighting alongside the Syrian Army to defend President Bashar al-Assad since the start of the civil war in Syria, together with Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards. The group, which is banned by the United States as well, is represented by a considerable segment of the national government cabinet as well as a faction in the Lebanese parliament.

Although Nasrallah speaks about avenging Mughniyeh’s death and waging war against Israel, he has remained in a secret hiding place since the end of the 2006 Second Lebanon War with Israel out of fear of assassination by Israeli agents.

Hezbollah Leader Announces ‘Threat to Israel’

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

Lebanon-based Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said Tuesday in a speech delivered live in honor of the Ashura holiday that it is time for the terror group to “direct [its] gaze toward Israel.”

The address, broadcast live over Hezbollah-linked Al Manar TV, focused primarily on the current civil war raging in Syria and how it connects to Israel.

“Southern Lebanon is prepared to fight [Israel], despite the presence of our soldiers in Syria,” Nasrallah proclaimed. “We are capable of aiming at any target in Israel,” he added – making a clear reference to the extended range of the missiles in Hezbollah’s current arsenal.

“We are not afraid of war,” Nasrallah went on. “We are a threat to Israel, not the other way around. Their threats lay in their lost hope, not in their military capabilities.

“The Arab League needs to rise up against the Israeli aggression,” he advised. “Israel exploits changes in the Arab world to attain its goals.”

Referring possibly to the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terror organization, Nasrallah said that his group has been facing “the region’s largest threat.”

His fighters are entitled to the honor that comes with victory over Israel, he said.

“Latest developments in Syria and the region convince us that we have made the right choice in joining the Syrian battles,” he said.

The terror chief has remained in hiding since the 2006 Second Lebanon War, fearing a targeted assassination attempt by Israeli intelligence operatives.

Israel’s northern region has been on alert since early this summer. The defense establishment has maintained a close watch along the entire northern border since the start of Operation Protective Edge.
