The Winds of War - Gaza, Lebanon, and Iran

The winds of war are blowing in Gaza. And a perfect storm is brewing in Lebanon. Iran wants to see Israel destroyed, and will not stop their genocidal machinations until physically stopped.

Once again, may God help us all.

Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin said Tuesday morning that "Israel must prepare for a wide military confrontation in the Strip, if moderate sources in the Palestinian Authority do not get stronger"”.

Speaking at a Knesset'’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, Diskin outlined the Palestinians'’ efforts to arm and noted that, "“If all fails and it become impossible to strengthen Fatah, Israel needs to prepare for a military option in Gaza. The situation in the Strip is not a flashing traffic light but a red, red, red, light. Israel has no good options in Gaza, there only bad options and we need to chose the least bad of all."”

Diskin described an enormous amount of weapon smuggling into the Gaza Strip through dozens of tunnels. "“Although the number of terror attacks this year following the disengagement is smaller, the important thing to look at is the amount of weapons and the significant strengthening of Hamas as a result of the disengagement,"” he said.

Ahmadinejad: Israel'’s destruction near

According to the Iranian media Monday, Iranian President Mahoud Ahmadinejad declared that Israel was destined to '‘disappearance and destruction'’ at a council meeting with Iranian ministers.

"“The western powers created the Zionist regime in order to expand their control of the area. This regime massacres Palestinians everyday, but since this regime is against nature, we will soon witness its disappearance and destruction,"” Ahmadinejad said.

A Perfect Storm?

If this isn'’t gruesome enough, Syria and Iran have reportedly replenished all Hezbollah'’s destroyed arsenal stocks. Hezbollah, according to the Times of London, now has more rockets than they had before the most recent Israeli invasion. If this is, in fact, true, UNIFIL ought to just go home right now. These foreign soldiers are useless except as human shields.
