More Shiite Friends: U.S. in Secret Dialogue with Hezbollah

Monday, November 25th, 2013

The news goes from terrible to …….. horrible. First Iran, now this. Is there any murderous jihadi that Obama won’t sanction? Hezbollah is a designated terrorist organization responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans.

Obama is friend to the global jihad, enemy of American interests, an enemy in the White House, no less. Devastating.

In April 1983, Hezbollah (party of Allah) allegedly blew up a van filled with explosives in front of the U.S. embassy in Beirut, killing 58 Americans and Lebanese. In October 1983, Iranian proxy Hezbollah bombed our Marine barracks in Beirut, taking the lives of 241 Americans and 58 French. Funded by Iran and Syria, Hezbollah has been at war with the US since its creation in 1982.

In 1984, William Francis Buckley, Beirut CIA Station Chief/Political Officer, was kidnapped from his apartment by Hezbollah:

Major General Carl Stiner stated that “Buckley’s kidnapping had become a major CIA concern. Not long after his capture, his agents either vanished or were killed. It was clear that his captors had tortured him into revealing the network of agents he had established.” According to the US, Buckley had undergone 15 months of torture by Hezbollah before his death. In a video taken approximately seven months after the kidnapping, his appearance was described as follows:

Buckley was close to a gibbering wretch. His words were often incoherent; he slobbered and drooled and, most unnerving of all, he would suddenly scream in terror, his eyes rolling helplessly and his body shaking. … The CIA consensus was that he would be blindfolded and chained at the ankles and wrists and kept in a cell little bigger than a coffin.

Obama is working with these savages.

Lebanese parliamentary sources said U.S. diplomats have begun contact with Hezbollah politicians in Beirut. They said the dialogue concerned stability in Lebanon as well as the next government.

“The United States is sending and receiving messages to Hezbollah through sympathetic third parties,” a source said. “The dialogue has intensified over the last few weeks.”

The dialogue was reported by members of the pro-Western March 14 coalition, driven out of power in 2011. The members, who did not want to be identified, said the U.S. dialogue with Hezbollah was part of the rapprochement by President Barack Obama with Iran.

Nasrallah to EU: There’s Only One Hezbollah, and We Own Lebanon

Thursday, July 25th, 2013

Following the European Union’s decision to blacklist Hezbollah’s armed wing, the terror organization’s leader Hassan Nasrallah said: “I tell the other camp in Lebanon that they won’t be able to exploit the decision in their Lebanese political calculations or to isolate the party and form a cabinet without it.”

Nasrallah spoke at a televised iftar (post fast) banquet organized by the Women’s Committee of the Islamic Resistance Support Association. As always, the brave leader spoke only via a video link, because there’s an IDF drone with his name on it hovering above Beirut day and night, and the Sheik knows better than to set foot outside his bunker.

To get the required agreement of all 28 EU member states, European foreign ministers had to compromise with some members who feared the move would further destabilize Lebanon, where Hezbollah is a key coalition partner.

And so EU political and economic ties with Lebanon will be fully maintained in a delicate balancing act, and with an absurd policy of dealing only with the “good Hezbollah”—the political arm, while shunning the “bad Hezbollah”—the military arm.

The fact that the same man, Hassan Nasrallah, is at the helm in both segments, which are one and the same, has not escaped anyone, including Nasrallah himself. He appears to have no interest in the artificial division, speaking with great pride about the effect of the military Hezbollah on the politics of Lebanon and the region.

“The resistance gained people’s confidence and credibility in the Arab and Islamic worlds through its sacrifices and steadfastness and through its achievements and victories, after managing to change the equations of the conflict, regaining the land, captives, dignity and sovereignty, and creating an advanced position for Lebanon in the region,” Nasrallah boasted.

He vowed that “this resistance will remain a stiff thorn in the eye of the Zionists and in the eye of anyone seeking to harm Lebanon.”

Nasrallah clarified that “the resistance was and is still a subject of Lebanese, Arab, regional and international interest, whether positive or negative interest.”

Hezbollah’s “military wing” was blamed for a deadly attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria last year.

And in March, a Hezbollah operative was convicted in Cyprus of plotting a similar attack.

But Nasrallah had nothing to say about the fact that his own fingerprints are visible in both cases. Instead, he blames the EU of operating in cahoots with the “Zionists.”

“These (European) states have made themselves fully responsible for any Israeli attack on Lebanon or Lebanon’s resistance (meaning Hezbollah) or any target of the resistance,” he told the women at the banquet.

“These states need to know… that they are giving legal cover to Israel for any attack on Lebanon, because Israel can now claim to be fighting terrorism and to be bombing terrorist targets,” he added.

Because, as we all know, Israel bombs Lebanon without Hezbollah provocation, just to keep busy.

Referring to the new EU ban on products from Judea and Samaria, Nasrallah asked the Europeans: “Why haven’t you designated Israel as a terrorist state although you acknowledge the Israel is occupying Arab land?”

Watch them go there, should the “peace process” were to, somehow, yield less than a total give back of Jewish land to the Arabs.

IDF Launches New Media Weapon in Information War against Hezbollah

Friday, July 12th, 2013

The IDF has launched new interaction media websites on the Hezbollah terrorist network in a pre-emptive strike to expose the rapidly expanding empire for what it is.

The vastly researched sites provide media outlets and, more importantly, the general public with a wealth of information that is designed to help Israel overcome the worldwide media bias in favor its enemies,

Operation Cast Lead in Gaza four years ago and the war in Lebanon proved how much foreign media were hell-bent to serve up reportage with a strongly pro-Hezbollah and pro-Hamas viewpoint.

Hezbollah’s move into Syria creates a gigantic threat to Israel, much more than Hamas or even Iran at this point. Hezbollah crippled northern Israel and surprised the IDF with advanced weapons and guerilla tactics in the Second Lebanon War in 2006, and it has a huge stockpile of  missiles ready for launching to strike again.

Lt. Col. Avital Leibovitz, the IDF’s director of the new Interactive Branch, told the Jewish Press and a select number of other media outlets Thursday that in last year’s Pillar of Defense counterterrorist operation against a barrage of hundreds of missiles on southern Israel,  “mainstream media” did not accurately report the massive attacks on Israel.

Now the military is striking back with its new Interactive Media Branch, which is using 30 platforms for websites in several languages – Hebrew, English, Russian, Arabic, Spanish, French and Russian.

“I am not trying to change the media,” Lt. Col. Leibovitz said. In effect, the IDF is carrying the banner of social protest groups, from the Arab world to Europe and the United States, and getting its message across on a new website while counting on a growing following on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

“The idea is similar in its concept of the military adapting to new war zones,” she explained. “This is a new media war zone  of interactive media.”

As of midnight tonight, the IDF has made available nine Hezbollah websites that are stocked with data and researched intelligence information exposing Hezbollah for what it is.

Although Leibovitz said she is not trying  to write an encyclopedia, the websites in fact provide a vast amount of information, with photographs, interactive maps, videos, and documented research, exposing Hezbollah as a terrorist organization and not just a  political party. One website covers its illicit drugs and money laundering operations that bring in the funds to finance terror.

Other sites deal with Nasrallah, the Hezbollah media empire and its army of terror.

It is difficult to believe that foreign media all of a sudden will be nice to Israel, but the availability of the new websites for the general public may generate an even larger following on social media sites that will make it more problematic for media to portray Israel in an unfairly negative tone while treating organizations such as Hezbollah as a “militants” and “resistance fighters” trying to eliminate a supposed threat from Israel.

The IDF’s YouTube postings have received 35 million views. It has 340,000 followers in English on Facebook and 130,000 followers on Twitter, according to Leibovitz.

The new websites have been in the works for six months, staffed by approximately 30 regular soldiers and officers and with the cooperation of intelligence units and the Northern Command.

One of the leaders in developing the sites is 25-year-old Gabriel Freund, an immigrant from Australia, “I have been working for several months to get the site ready to tell the story of Hezbollah in a way that will be easy to share and understand,” he explained.”

Nasrallah to Discuss Drone Over Israel on TV on Thursday

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

Hizbullah Chief Hassan Nasrallah will discuss rumors of a Lebanese drone over Israel in a televised appearance on Thursday, according to Lebanese daily Naharnet.

Nasrallah have a televised appearance on Thursday to discussed current issues on the Lebanese and regional scenes, including rumors of a Lebanese drone crossing into Israeli airspace.

A drone was shot down over Israeli airspace on Shabbat.  Military officials originally indicated that the aircraft may have been sent by Hizbullah.

Hizbullah radicals have been joining up with soldiers loyal to Syrian president Bashar Assad in a hot civil war which has claimed the lives of an estimated 32,000 people in the last year and a half.

I’m Going Back to Hollywood

Monday, June 18th, 2012

I’m going back to Hotel California. That’s right. What am I, a sucker? Why should I send my kids to the Israeli army when they can become tennis pros in Beverly Hills? You think I’m kidding? An old friend from LA got me a job writing for a new sit-com, “Gay in the White House” about America’s first gay President and First Gay Lady. The show has a lot of potential, and I haven’t forgotten how to write trash humor, so why not use my talents to make a few bucks ($600,000 a year) instead of giving my stuff away free here at The Jewish Press?

Now that I think about it, I made a big mistake. Instead of bringing Tevye to the Promised Land, I should have brought him to Las Vegas to meet up with Meir Lansky and Bugsy Siegel in building the town’s first casino. First he throws off his embarrassing tzitzis, then his milkman’s cap, then he shaves off his beard and finds himself a shicksa. Now that would have been a bestseller! Everyone loves to read novels about Jews who assimilate. Look at Norman Mailer. He had 8 shicksa wives. Philip Roth also forgot to marry a Jew. Plus he writes about hating his mother and makes fun of being Jewish, so of course the world loves him! Joseph Heller wrote a ribald satire about King David. And the great Jewish playwright, Arthur Miller, married Marilyn Monroe. You can’t top that for success! What a jerk I was to bring Tevye to the Holy Land to become a pioneer settler! It’s the exact opposite of what the world wants to read about! My old literary agent in NY loved the book, but said it was “too Jewish.” Meaning it was too pro Israel, pro Torah, pro settlements, and too anti-assimilation. Imagine a publisher saying Tolstoy was “too Russian.” Or that James Clavell’s books were “too Japanese.”

Well, I’ve learned my lesson. By the time you read this blog, I’ll probably be on the plane to LA. My wife refuses to come with me, so who knows what could be? Maybe I’ll become Madonna’s new rabbi and follow her around on tour. Talk about publicity! I’d be famous overnight and Amazon Books wouldn’t be able to keep up with the demand for my books! California dreaming on such a summer’s day. If I forget thee, O Hollywood! In the meantime, here’s a short story from my collection of short stories, “Day of Mashiach”.

The book has just been published in France. The French appreciate good literature for literature’s sake. They compare me there to Kafka, Voltaire, and the master of fables, Jean de La Fontaine. Just like they say, no man’s a prophet in his own land. Anyway, enjoy the story. It’s a fable about the Jewish People. If you don’t have time to read it now, print it out and save it for later. And don’t forget to follow the serialization of Tevye in the Promised Land starting today in The Jewish Press. I’m sure you’ll like it! L’hitraot and see you in LA!

THE GREAT AMERICAN NOVELIST

Ephraim Lane was born with the name Ephraim Lansky. In his youth, he was a voracious reader. By the time he was six, he could quote long passages from Hemingway, Faulkner, Fitzgerald, and Wolfe. When he was thirteen, he shocked his parents by refusing to have a bar-mitzvah. Judaism, he claimed, was lousy fiction. All human beings were chosen, he said. In the spirit of rebellion which was to characterize his future, he vowed to use his talents to erase all differences between gentiles and Jews.

Ephraim attended an elite boarding school in New England. He partied through four years at Harvard, and fought valiantly in the Marines. His first novel about the Second World War, written in his young twenties, and published under the more American-sounding E. Lane, was an explosive bestseller. The passionate account of manhood trial and fear was not just another copy of Hemingway, like so many books of the time, but the dawning of a brilliant new light.

His next piece of fiction was shorter and far more complex. The allegory about a society gone corrupt received good reviews but failed to attract an audience. Like the strong-hearted boxer that he fancied himself, he pulled himself up from the canvas and published his third work, a literary satire of Jewish life in New York which put his impish grin on magazine covers all over the country. A try at a Hollywood screenplay, a loud bout of drinking, a publicized marriage with a sexy actress, followed by a speedy divorce, sent the young author back down to the mat.

IDF Preparing for Conflict in Lebanon

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Col. Shmulik Olensky, commander of the “Barak” armored brigade on Israel’s northern front, said that the Israel Defense Force is “dealing with extensive preparations for fighting in Lebanon.”

Speaking at a conference earlier in the week about the First Lebanon War, Olensky said that the next “Lebanon war is going to be different, different from the first and second…There are no longer Christian villages in the south, all have become Hizbollah military compounds, found at every level and in every village. At the entry areas, there will be observation officers and anti-tank missiles.

“A flare-up in Lebanon can occur at any time,” Col. Olensky said. “Therefore we are preparing as much as possible, with unique plans, improved models, and joint training.”

The conference was held in the shadow of increasing concerns that the crisis in Syria will spill over into its notoriously-sectarian neighbor Lebanon. Already, a recent intra-Muslim clash in Tripoli left two Sunni clergymen dead. Adding to the volatility are recent threats by high-level Iranian officials that Western military intervention in Syria will result in an attack on Israel. Taken together, there is substantial concern that Hizbollah will be called on to do Iran’s bidding and attack Israel.

According to Yoram Schweitzer and Oz Gertner of the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), Israeli security officials estimate that “Hizbollah currently has an organized army of more than 10,000 soldiers and some 60,000 rockets of various ranges, capable of causing more damage and greater precision than the rockets it possessed during the Second Lebanon War.” Hassan Nasrallah, Hizbollah’s leader, recently stated that his organization possesses rockets the range of which cover all of Israel.

In an Insight paper, titled “Will Foreign Interests Drag Lebanon into a Military Conflict?”, Schweitzer and Gertner state that despite Hizbollah’s “close strategic cooperation with President Bashar Assad,” and “publicly announced [ ] support for the Syrian regime,” the organization must consider a Lebanese public that is “loath to engage in another round of violence…because of the heavy economic and physical cost they had to pay as a result of the Second Lebanon War into which they were dragged by Hizbollah against their wishes.” Plus, senior Israeli officials have made it clear to the Lebanese government that the Israeli response to any act of Hizbollah aggression “would entail much greater damage to Lebanon, including the destruction not only of targets directly associated with Hizbollah.”

Although these are compelling reasons for restraint on Hizbollah’s part,  Schweitzer and Gertner conclude that the Mullah’s in Iran will be calling the shots on Lebanon’s southern border:  “Nasrallah may not have much room to maneuver and will be forced to heed Tehran’s instructions to act against Israel for the sake of Iranian or Syrian interests.”

 

Nasrallah: We Will Strike Tel Aviv

Sunday, May 13th, 2012

In a televised speech in suburbs south of Beirut on Friday, Hizbullah leader Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah boasted that his sophisticated terror network is capable of hitting any target “in Tel Aviv and occupied Palestine”.

Nasrallah spoke at an event commemorating the completion of reconstruction and rebuilding of destruction incurred during the Second Lebanon War.  The Second Lebanon War began on July 12, 2006, when Hizbullah fired rockets into northern Israel at the same time as it attacked two Israeli military jeeps, killing 3 IDF soldiers.

According to a report in the Tehran Times, Nasrallah told attendees that “the era in which we are afraid and they are not is over,” and that his group is “capable of striking very specific targets not only in Tel Aviv but everywhere in occupied Palestine.”

He bragged that while Israel attempted to “crush the resistance” during the month-long Second Lebanon War, “the war has failed to achieve its goal”.  And in the future, he said, “for every building destroyed in Dahiya [an area in the suburbs of southern Beirut], a building will be destroyed in Tel Aviv”.

As of 2010, the Israeli government estimated that Hizbullah had an arsenal of more than 15,000 long-range rockets on its border with Lebanon.
