Hizbullah head tells Lebanese public upcoming IDF exercise possible sign Israel is preparing for another war
"Israel is planning for a new surprise war. In their message to the people in Israel they said to prepare for surprising developments, despite the fact that they know no one will open a war against them."
"Why do they say they? Why are they creating this atmosphere? They want to prepare their entity because they are the ones that start wars..."
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu emerged from his first meeting with US President Barack Obama Monday confident that Israel has the right to defend itself from the threat of a nuclear Iran.
Following four hours of talks with Obama, Netanyahu told Israeli reporters gathered across from the White House that there are no green, red or yellow lights from the US but rather a shared sense that Iran must not be allowed to develop a nuclear weapons capacity.
A change in leadership in Teheran would be one of form and not substance, according to the latest IDF assessments, which rule out the possibility that a new president would be open to the possibility of freezing the Islamic republic's nuclear program.
And I indicated to Prime Minister Netanyahu in private what I have said publicly, which is that Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon would not only be a threat to Israel and a threat to the United States, but would be profoundly destabilizing in the international community as a whole and could set off a nuclear arms race in the Middle East that would be extraordinarily dangerous for all concerned, including for Iran.
Their meeting proceeded according to expectations. The president displayed reserved friendship, covering over the deep differences between the two leaders? positions. As expected, Netanyahu described the meeting as "very good and friendly," while Obama praised the prime minster publicly for his political skills and awareness of history, saying he believed Netanyahu would make "strategic decisions for Israel's security" during his term.

Sounds like quite a party.
If I were attacked as often as Israel has been, I'd be preparing for war as well.
After all, their enemies have brought it to the Israelis multiple times.
You can't be surprised if you anticipate surprised.
And you can't get hit first if you hit first.
