Arabs would back Lebanon if attacked by Israel


Arab League chief Amr Mussa said on Thursday that Arab countries would stand by Lebanon if it were attacked by Israel, adding that the situation between the two countries is tense.

Has Hezbollah ``victory`` against Israel gave back the will to fight to the arabs? It seems so.

All points towards big stuff happening in the next war. Israel will use it's missiles for sure, but will they use their nukes, that is a question worth 60 million lives and world chaos.

Yes 60 millions because as a study on nuclear war in the middle-east, 36 millions iranians would be killed in the first two weeks, not to mention what would happen if Syria, Lebanon and whoever else gets nuked.

Report: Hizbullah Tries to Break Out of Militant Mold


Hizbullah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah recently delivered an odd but deeply important political message to his followers: Heed traffic signs and pay your electric bills.
The call may not seem particularly significant, but it was widely seen as the latest sign that Hizbullah— is reinventing itself as a more conventional political movement in Lebanon.

That is good. Since Hezbollah could be won over by more moderate people, keeping the resistance alive, but stopping with all the war threats.

"We won't be shaken by the objections of some sides on the resistance because we represent a substantive majority among the Lebanese people," Qassem stressed at a Hizbullah educational conference.
Indeed.

Lebanon-Syria Border Area Preparing for Syrian Tanks

The sounds of explosions heard along the Lebanese-Syrian border in recent days were caused by the blasting of big rocks in the area to make a parking lot for Syrian army tanks, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Siyasa. The paper cited a Lebanese army source which said the blasts were conducted by the men of terrorist Ahmed Jibril Rajoub's pro-Syrian Popular Front terror organization.

The tanks are expected to arrive in the area soon to protect Lebanon for fear of an Israeli attack.

As the Lebanese civilians in the area said... That there was lots of military work in the area.

But I think it's more in case Israel goes in Lebanon...so they don't go in Syria..or at least if they try, they will get hit..but IMO this is not to protect Lebanon... or if it is, it's backup positions, not the frontline.

CENTCOM HQ deploys to Qatar



MACDILL AFB, Fla. (Feb. 21, 2010) — As part of the CENTCOM headquarters training program, the United States Central Command is conducting a periodic command and control shift exercise. Beginning this weekend, the first of approximately 500 people will begin deployment from its Tampa headquarters to its forward headquarters located in Doha, Qatar. This is a regularly scheduled and long-planned training event.

The primary purpose of the deployment is to exercise the CENTCOM staff's ability to seamlessly transition command and control and operate from its forward headquarters in Qatar, and is not in response to any recent or ongoing operations.

The CENTCOM staff last deployed to it forward headquarters in October 2009 when the staff exercised its continuity of operations plan.

Even more news


www.timesonline.co.uk...

The son of one of Hamas’s founding members was a spy in the service of Israel for more than a decade, helping prevent dozens of Islamist suicide bombers from finding their targets, it emerged today.

Codenamed the Green Prince by Shin Bet, Israel’s internal security service, Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Hamas co-founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef, supplied key intelligence on an almost daily basis from 1996 onwards and tracked down suicide bombers and their handlers from his father’s organization, the daily Haaretz said.

Information he supplied led to the arrests of some of the most wanted men by Israeli forces, including Marwan Barghouti, a Fatah leader often tipped as a potential president who was convicted of masterminding terrorist attacks, and one of Hamas’ top bomb-makers Abdullah Barghouti, who is no relation of the jailed Fatah chief.

Mr Yousef, a 32-year-old convert to Christianity who now lives in California, has revealed the intrigues of his years as a spy in a new book called “Son of Hamas”

[…]

Mr Yousef had harsh words for the movement that his father helped form, and which now rules the Gaza Strip after a bloody takeover in summer 2007. “Hamas cannot make peace with the Israelis,” he told the daily. “That is against what their God tells them. It is impossible to make peace with infidels, only a cease-fire, and no one knows that better than I. The Hamas leadership is responsible for the killing of Palestinians, not Israelis."

NYT said the move baffled the IAEA, as an above-ground plant is exposed to aerial attacks. It was as if a bull’s-eye had been painted on it, one official was quoted as saying, while military officials said this is a tempting moment for the Israelis, according to the American newspaper.


Interesting... a bull's eye for Israel forces? So the Iranian ``strategy`` could be, bait Israel into attacking them, especially bombing their nuclear stockpile, killing tens of thousands by radiation and creating a big radiation cloud, spreading everywhere, turning the world against Israel....

From Ehud Barak himself...



And "it's not just about hegemonic, nuclear capabilities, I don't think the Iranians, even if they got the bomb are going to drop it immediately on some neighbor. They understand what may follow. They are radical but not total meshuganas."


Nice, so even the big Ehud Barak knows that Iran isn't crazy enough to nuke Israel... oops.


We do not seek conflict, but if attacked, "we will not chase the individual terrorists who are building and digging in among urban concentrations inside civilian populations, but take both the Lebanese government and its infrastructure and other sources of sponsorship," he stressed.

They are gonna go against Syria, Lebanon and Iran next time a war breaks out. I expect tens of thousands of dead, perhaps hundreds of thousands, and if nukes are used, over 30 million dead.

Month after month, the Obama administration was able to hold Israel back from attacking its nuclear facilities only by a guarantee of tough sanctions, first promised for the end of last year and latterly by the end of March. Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu believed he was in tune with Washington when he visited Moscow two weeks ago to discuss sanctions in the immediate term and arms sales to Tehran, and sent minister for strategy affairs Moshe Yaalon to Beijing to persuade the Chinese not to stall urgent sanctions at the Security Council.
Israeli government officials now feel they have been strung along and, moreover, that their diplomatic efforts in Moscow and Beijing were irrelevant.

Even if it's Debka, sometimes, there's truth in their reports.

"There could be stages of withdrawal, the timing of which could involve a form of normalization [between Israel and Syria]," said Mouallem. "[Returning] half of the Golan could lead to an end to enmity, while three quarters of the Golan could lead to [opening] a special interest section at the US Embassy in Damascus. A full [Israeli] withdrawal would allow a Syrian Embassy in Israel.”
No you think? I've been saying this for years. Want to make Syria break from Iran? Do that.

IDF: Syria offers Hezbollah greater support than ever


Syria is transferring weapons to Hezbollah that it did not dare to hand over before, Senior IDF intelligence official tells Knesset committee Tuesday; PM Netanyahu: Iran creating false impression, we're not seeking confrontation with Syria

Syria is crossing previous red lines in supplying Hezbollah with weapons, handing over arms that it never before dared transfer to the Lebanese terror group, the head of the IDF's research division of Military Intelligence says.

"Syria is handing over to Hezbollah components that it would not dare hand over before," Yossi Baidatz told the Knesset Defense and Foreign Affairs Committee Tuesday.

Addressing the Hezbollah threat, the senior IDF official said the group was facing a dilemma between its Jihadist identity and commitment to Iran on the one hand and Lebanon's domestic arena on the other hand.

"For that reason, although it has maintained the quiet and is uninterested in a clash, it attempts to carry out a revenge attack for Mugniyah's death, especially against Israeli targets abroad," Baidatz said. "Simultaneously, it continues to build up its strength for a confrontation against Israel, deploys its members broadly throughout south Lebanon but also deeper, and accumulates advanced weapons – long-range missiles, anti-aircraft missiles, and anti-tank missiles, with Iran's and Syria's assistance."

'Iranian regime won't collapse soon'

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also addressed the issue, noting that "there is a process of military buildup and very methodical provocation by Iran."

"We are not seeking any kind of confrontation with Syria. The talk about us preparing for an offensive against Syria is unfounded," the PM said. "This false impression is being created by Iran."

Baidatz added that "Iran continues to tighten its ties with the radical axis."

"Just look at the three-way meeting held in Syria," he said. "It included the commander of Iran's revolutionary forces, who are responsible on behalf of Iran for supplying weapons to all terror groups at all regions."

Also in respect to Iran, Baidatz said that hopes for an imminent collapse of the Ayatollah regime are premature.

"The potential for something taking place within the Iranian population exists, but there's a great distance between the riots we saw and the regime's collapse," he said. "The Iranian regime is not about to collapse, and those who expect that Iran will soon collapse will be gravely disappointed."


IMO Syria views Hezbollah as Syrian army 2 because if any war breaks out between Hezbollah and Israel, Syria is sure to be bombed. So better arm Hezbollah better so Israel will have it's hand ties with Hezbollah and won't have time to deal with Syria.

My point is by arming Hezbollah, Syria thinks they can avoid being bombed... that or making a big united front against Israel... or some kind of pressure to have the Golan Heights.

Finally they acknowledge how their image is destroyed abroad...maybe he finally did read the report he received...
