Reasons to Destroy Hezbollah Now

by Aaron Lerner

There will be war (with Iran) in any case, and we are talking about a costly war. Delaying action against enemies means more devastation.

(Israel is facing a multiple-front war with Iran, Hamas in Gaza, terrorists in Judea and Samaria, Hezbollah and others in Lebanon, and even possibility that Iranian-backed militias in Syria will join. The threat of a Hezbollah response to an Israeli attack against Iran's nuclear program must be neutralised.)

Here are reasons to destroy Hezbollah in a surprise attack now:

#1. Superior results: By definition, a surprise Israeli attack minimizes the damage Hezbollah can cause (during an imminent war with Iran).

#2. War not involving Iran and others: A surprise Israeli attack buys the Jewish State precious time to benefit from carrying out operations in a single-arena or at most a dual-arena (Lebanon and Gaza) conflict rather than the treacherously broad multi-arena conflict we could very well face if we allow Hezbollah to decide when the conflict starts with Iran.

#3. Diplomacy failing to stop a Hezbollah Hezbollah invasion: Its either war or diplomacy and the international authorities have already made it crystal clear that they won't do anything to actually resolve the situation.

#4. World focus on other fronts gives Israel time: There is so much going on in the rest of the world that we could benefit by a particularly long "window of opportunity" before facing pressure to stop.

#5. Time is not on our side: While we rush to add such gizmos to our portfolio as revolutionary lasers and various platforms, our enemies are also building up their capabilities at a breakneck pace.

We are talking about a COSTLY war. But the cost of taking our destiny into our own hands dwarfs the devastation we may face if we allow Hezbollah and their Iranian bosses to call the shots.

Hezbollah Refused to Remove Posts on Israeli Side of Border

The head of Hezbollah’s faction in the Lebanese parliament, Mohammad Raad, has told Israel to “shut up” and rescind its demand that the terror group dismantle an outpost set up within formal Israeli territory beyond the border fence between the countries. “If you don’t want war, shut up and walk back. Gone are the days when you could bomb the nuclear reactor in Iraq without anyone batting an eyelid, and when you were not afraid of anyone. Now you can’t remove two tents because of the resistance.” he said. (It is time to ‘remove’ Hezbollah from Lebanon, starting with the tents in

Israel! After so much anti-Israel posturing, one of the Hezbollah posts on Mount Dov, inside Israeli territory, was moved back towards Lebanon on Sunday.)

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

Many countries - including the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia – are "gravely concerned" and condemned Israel for planning to build new Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria. Currently, there are 55 colonies, including 17 territories, in the world. China, Australia, Denmark, Netherland, New Zealand, Norway, France, the United States, and the United Kingdom are still colonising land of others. Who gave them the right to lecture the only Jewish state and its people for returning to the Jewish ancestral land? Fake Palestinians are the real occupiers of the Jewish land!

Iran Instructed PA Terrorists to Arm

Islamic Jihad Secretary-General Ziyad al-Nakhalah has confirmed that his terror organization is working to increase its hold in Judea and Samaria, and that it is also working to provide Fatah members with weapons. These efforts, which include arming members of rival factions, are by the instruction of Iran, al-Nakhalah added. (This is another reason to neutralise the Iranian nuclear program and help the people of Iran to remove the Islamic dictatorship of Ayatollahs.)

Waiting for Jenin to Become Gaza?

Former Israeli Ambassador to the UN MK Danny Danon (Likud) questioned Prime Minister Netanyahu as to why the government has not launched a large military operation to root out terrorism in Judea and Samaria following the launching of a rocket from Jenin a week ago. He slammed Netanyahu: "Sir, what are we waiting for? For Jenin to become Gaza? We know that there are plans to deal with the worsening security chaos in northern Samaria. Why does the political echelon not approve them? The residents of Samaria cannot be left sitting ducks." (Just a few days later, Israel launched extensive air and ground attacks on Jenin, striking what it called a militant “operational command center”. At least 5 terrorists were neutralised.)

IAF Responded to Syrian Missile

The Israeli military said fighter jets struck a Syrian air defense battery in response to an anti-aircraft missile launched from the system earlier in the night that exploded over Israeli airspace. (The Israeli Air Force allegedly carried out air strikes against Hezbollah and Iranian targets. It would be prudent if Syria stays neutral in this war game.)

The UN ‘Blacklist’ of Firms Doing Business in Judea and Samaria

The UN Human Rights Office said that it had removed 15 companies from its so-called blacklist of firms that do business in Judea and Samaria. However, 122 firms still remain. The vast majority of the 105 firms on the updated list were still based in Israel. Though 17 international businesses, such as Airbnb,, Expedia, TripAdvisor and Motorola, are also included. Notably, 15 Israeli firms stopped doing business in the settlements, depriving Arabs of good income. (Ugly international Nazis do not blacklist companies for doing business in really occupied and colonised lands like – Tibet, New Caledonia, the Falkland Islands, Northern Cyprus, etc.)

Afghan Institute Honoured IsraAID and Jewish NGOs

The Afghan Institute for Strategic Studies (AISS) held a ceremony in London, that honoured IsraAID and the British Jewish NGO HIAS+JCORE for their work in evacuating and resettling Afghan nationals after the jihadi terrorist movement, after the Taliban seized power in October 2021. According to AISS: “Throughout the Afghan crisis, the extended HIAS community assisted with housing, which included helping new resettlement partners to start receiving refugees during this unprecedented moment."

Netanyahu is still Dilusional about the PA

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense committee that the government is planning for “the day after” Mahmoud Abbas as president of the Palestinian Authority. He did not come out categorically against the PA. “We need the Palestinian Authority. We cannot allow it to collapse. We also do not want it to collapse. We are prepared to help it financially. We have an interest in the Authority continuing to function; in the places where it manages to function it’s doing the job for us,” he said. (What job? Fostering terrorism and propagating hate against Jews and Israel among so-called Palestinians and world-wide?)

Quotes of the Week:

"Since day one of their (Biden) administration they have launched campaigns against our Israeli allies that are granular, whole of government, and done in secret. Whether it is pleading with the terrorists in Tehran for a bad nuclear deal, ceding diplomatic ground in the Middle East to China, or releasing an antisemitism policy that undermines efforts to codify a clear and comprehensive definition of antisemitism, the Biden administration continues to be a delight for far-left radicals and a deep disappointment to mainstream pro-Israel supporters." - Sen. Ted Cruz, a member of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Netanyahu Caved in to anti-Zionist Demonstrations

by Yolande Knell

After months of protests, Israel's Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made a surprise announcement that he is dropping one of the most contentious (and most important) parts of his (coalition) judicial overhaul plans. He said that he is no longer seeking to give the Knesset the authority to overturn Supreme Court rulings.

"The idea of an override clause, where the parliament, the Knesset, can override the decisions of the Supreme Court with a simple majority. I threw that out," he said. However, this amendment has failed to appease Leftist demonstration leaders and have angered his coalition partners.

Ben-Gvir, the leader of the Jewish Power party, accused Mr Netanyahu of "surrendering" to civil unrest, saying it was "a victory for violence and a loss for Israel. We were elected to bring governance and change. Reform is a cornerstone of that promise". 

It has long been an argument of the Israeli Zionists that the Supreme Court has been increasingly intruding into politics, making decisions in areas where it should have no authority.

The coalition says it is making reforms to restore the correct checks and balances between branches of government, where parliament as the elected body has greater sway.

At the moment, the Israeli government is pushing ahead with an element of the changes relating to what has been termed "the reasonable clause", advancing a bill that would prevent the court system from using a test of "reasonableness" when ruling against decisions and appointments made by all elected officials.

At the same time, Culture and Sport Minister Miki Zohar (Likud) contradicted statements made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying that the Override Clause is not yet off the table. (There is still hope that democracy and Zionist determination of most members of the current government coalition will prevail.)

Justice Minister Yariv Levin (Likud), one of the two architects of the Israeli government’s judicial reform plan, is reportedly working with members of the coalition to force Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to pass the entire overhaul package.
