“Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars.
Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come down.
There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is spoiled” (Zechariah 11:1-3).
Russia Insider 12 March 2017: The entire world celebrated after Russian President Vladimir Putin, bored by Netanyahu’s Bible Stories, Invites Israeli PM to Join Real World during the Sore Loser Summit in Moscow on March 9.
But the Israelis are not so easily convinced, unfortunately.
Now that it has been denied a nice chunk of Syrian territory (as a buffer zone, of course), Israel has set its sights once again on Lebanon.
Former U.S. Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney pointed us to Israel’s Plan B:
AlterNet has republished a real eye-opener from The Arab Weekly about growing tensions between Israel and Hezbollah. The thesis of the piece is that while “mutual deterrence” has provided for an uneasy ceasefire, the conflict in Syria has made it clear that a new war is almost certain — and it will “dwarf” the 2006 conflict:
Hezbollah’s leadership is acutely aware that an Israeli government may conclude that there will never be a better time to launch an offensive against its old enemy than while Hezbollah is fighting in Syria.
Hezbollah is still very focused on the front with Israel with many of its top fighters, especially anti-tank missile teams and rocket units, remaining in Lebanon rather than being deployed to Syria.
Netanyahu has said that Israel has carried out dozens of strikes to prevent weapons smuggling to the Iranian-backed Lebanese group Hezbollah via Syria.
Moscow has repeatedly stated that Hezbollah has played a decisive role in combating ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria — which will make any future Israeli war against Hezbollah a serious diplomatic crisis.
Israeli warplanes have repeatedly targeted Syrian Army positions under the pretext of preventing sophisticated weapons from reaching the Lebanese Hezbollah group.
But if you think Netanyahu will join the real world – think again!
Now, this is Russia Insider. Propaganda?
Let´see what the Israeli newspaper Haaretz 13 March 2017 has to say: “With Lebanon No Longer Hiding Hezbollah’s Role, Next War Must Hit Civilians Where It Hurts, Israeli Minister says Israeli Minister Naftali Bennett”.
Lebanon´s President Aoun: Hezbollah is a significant part of the Lebanese people. “ [Hezbollah’s] arms are essential, in that they complement the actions of the army and do not contradict them,” he said, adding, “They are a major part of Lebanon’s defense.
Brig. Gen. Assaf Orion from the Institute for National Security Studies wrote recently: The Lebanese president abolishes the forced distinction between the ostensibly sovereign state and Hezbollah. Thus, the Lebanese president takes official responsibility for any actions by Hezbollah, including against Israel. Bennett believes this should be Israel’s official stance. “The Lebanese institutions, its infrastructure, airport, power stations, traffic junctions, Lebanese Army bases – they should all be legitimate targets if a war breaks out. If Hezbollah fires missiles at the Israeli home front, this will mean sending Lebanon back to the Middle Ages.”
“If we declare and market this message aggressively enough now, we might be able to prevent the next war. After all, we have no intention of attacking Lebanon.” “That will lead them to stop it quickly – and we the IDF – have an interest in the war being as short as possible,” he said. “I haven’t said these things publicly up until now. That is the best way to avoid a war.”
Bennett’s declaration reflects an attempt by a key member of the security cabinet (albeit Netanyahu’s declared political rival) to turn it into such policy.
And here Iranian FARS 12 March 2017: The Israeli leaders are eager to make clear that the next war, which they consider an inevitability, will involve even more deliberate targeting of Lebanese civilians. This includes Education Minister Naftali Bennett, who like many others, has been talking up the idea of deliberately targeting populated areas in the next bloodbath.
The rationale and mechanics of Israel’s “Hezbollah–Syria Policy” is one of deliberate acts of provocation, intended to generate hostility and thus create pretexts for war, armed action and territorial expansion.
Benjamin Netanyahu, under siege by multiple corruption scandals, isn’t at the eleventh hour of his criminal career yet. Any unprovoked war admittedly is going to be against the people of Lebanon. It won’t be a secret to anyone that Netanyahu is going to kill thousands of Lebanese people AND Israeli soldiers to save himself from a prison sentence – although his ambitions lie further afield.
Only a thorough investigation mandated by the UN Security Council can ensure Israel’s cooperation and prevent the next war.
In the next war, which is an inevitability, you can kill more civilians. There won’t be any real consequences at the UN.
This is not only Biblical prophecy – it is real politik: The Yinon plan for A Greater Israel – from which Jewish Messiah ben David is to rule the world.
Global Res. 3 March 2014 The following document pertaining to the formation of “Greater Israel” (map right) constitutes the cornerstone of powerful Zionist factions within the current Netanyahu government, the Likud party, as well as within the Israeli military and intelligence establishment.
“The Yinon plan is an Israeli strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates that Israel must reconfigure its geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab states into smaller and weaker states.
When viewed in the current context, the war on Iraq, the 2006 war on Lebanon, the 2011 war on Libya, the ongoing war on Syria, not to mention the process of regime change in Egypt, (and IS(IS)) must be understood in relation to the Zionist Plan for the Middle East.
The Yinon Plan and Israeli strategists called for the division of Iraq into a Kurdish state and two Arab states, one for Shiite Muslims and the other for Sunni Muslims. Time Magazine 26 June 2014 has revealed a report of eight pages on plans to divide Iraq into such three states.
In the following video, Rebbe Schneerson commands humble Netanyahu to do more (to fulfill the biblical prophecies) for the coming of the Messiah. Netanyahu answers: “We do it – we do it”. Has the Rebbe appointed Netanyahu as ben Yosef? Some Jews guess that Netanyahu could be Messiah ben Yosef.
Chabads believe their Messiah, ben David of the tribe of Judah, is rebbe Schneerson (died 1994), who is to return from the dead. Some Chabads even see Schneerson as God himself. The rebbe did believe he was the Messiah(“God is neither spirit nor matter?!”).
But first the Talmudic ben Yosef of the tribe of Ephraim must prepare the 2. coming of the Messiah. If necessary, Messiah ben Joseph will wage war against the evil forces and die combating God´s enemies. The Chabads promote the fulfilment of the terrible biblical Doomsday prophecies (e.g. Hesekiel 38-39, Jeremiah 25, 50, 51, Habakkuk, Joel).
During the government of ben David, God will resurrect the dead.
Ben David is to rule over the whole world. Life will be as usual – the Messiah is an extrordinary human king with wisdom and justice, peace will prevail – but otherwise the world goes on as usual. The US Congress several times celebrated Chabad rebbe Schneerson´s birthday. When Schneerson died in 1994, he was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for his contribution to “global morals.
The world´s leaders come to the Chabads. Perpetual war is important to the Chabad Pharisees to promote their NWO (“Order out of their Chaos”). But also Christian “Dispensationalists” are pushing for WWIII – connected with US neocons. See here who they are
LEBANON´S DEMISE – AS WELL AS THAT OF SYRIA (ISAIAH 17) – IS THE FORERUNNER OF ISRAEL´S AND THE WORLD´S DEMISE (ISAIAH 33:9-13) – AND THE 2. COMING OF CHRIST (MATTH. 24).
AND THIS IS NOW BECOMING REALPOLITIK!
