Yes, they traveled with journalists so you will not get blown up. That is the new thing they have learnt. Shias crave war more than Sunnis. Thier entire hold on power is designed that way. They create fear and intimidation combined with religion and that is how they get the young ones to die for them. Hezzis would be jobless had all wars stopped. There will always be a war for these idiots to die for.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (07.24.15)
There is no other option !. Arn.Sweden
3. Hezbollah Casualties
Sean ,   Dublin   (07.24.15)
The article quotes an Israeli general stating that the 1300 dead Hezbollah has suffered is greater than all the dead in the wars with Israel. This is not in accord with the figures provided by Israel for the time period 1982 through 2006, which is well over 1300 Hezbollah casualties. Which is correct?
4. One dimensional analysis
Sammy ,   Newcastle   (07.24.15)
With both wars initiated by Hezbollah that shattered Lebanese lives and property and caused the Lebanese Economy to go into melt down ...just when Lebanon seems to be recovering despite the influx of refugees...Hezbollah want to use Lebanon once again to start another war with Israel? Does anyone believe that the majority of Lebanese will PERMIT Hezbollah to do this again? Where once there was fear of Hezbollah in Lebanon now there is only anger and contempt Caught up in their web of lies and deceipt and arrogance and simple minded moronic logic into believing that ALL LEBANESE SHOULD BE SUBSERVIENT TO and GRATEFUL FOR THEIR PROTECTION? While sucking the country dry South Lebanon and Beqaa are riddled with Rocket Dumps and Bunkers but MOST locations are well known and an open secret - even the location of the MOST SECRET 'Den' - Command and Control bunker is open season...maybe should become a Tourist Attraction And there are now THOUSANDS of Lebanese Patriots of ALL pursuasions waiting for the right moment to seize back control of half of the country made a NO MANS LAND to LEBANESE and a glorified arms dump and hijacked and devastated by nothing but a load of criminal gangsters
5. Israel has no enemies
Joya   (07.24.15)
6. And where can we detect some Israeli visions?
i-srael   (07.24.15)
Innovations? Outreach? Surgical Operations?
7. Lebanon Civil War
USA   (07.24.15)
Lebanon vs. Hezbollah, coming. Stay tuned.
8. Complex issues
ky   (07.24.15)
this article highlights the complex issues involved in the future threats Israel faces. To my mind it would be better not to get too involved in the complexities but rather look at the broad outline. The advantage lies with Israel. There is one salient factor .Only so many people would be prepared to sacrifice their lives in an aggressive cause. IE to see the destruction of Israel . Thousands have dies already. Hezbollah knows that the lives of its soldiers are not countless and already they realize the meaning of the word finite . Whereas Israel's cause is survival and involves the whole of of its population. Nuclear weapons have not come into the equation but even if it did the result would still be the same
9. Takfiri.
Erez   (07.24.15)
Whatever. But "takfiri" is when one muhammadan accuses another muhammadan of aposthasy, like in this case of intra-sect fighting. When a muhammadan calls "infidel" a non muslim he/she uses the word "kafir". After 1400 having to suffer this evil sect it´s about time for the world to understand what we´re up against.
10. Israel must retake So. Lebanon Security Zone & Gaza forever
Chaim ,   Israel   (07.24.15)
The root of all Israel's problems in South Lebanon and Gaza is Israel's mad retreat from those areas. It was peaceful till Israel listened to infallibly wrong leftists and fled. Israel needs to retake our South Lebanon Security Zone and Gaza forever. We got to act on the obvious truth that almost all Israel's serious problems result directly from Israeli retreats from our land.
11. Bigger problem..
siftet ,   usa   (07.24.15)
"It's more than they lost in all the battles and wars with Israel put together". If Hizzy losing more fighters to ISIS, then IDF is losing their war fighting capability. IDF needs to ramp up the body count.
12. Who cares?
BUILD BABY BUILD!!!   (07.24.15)
as long as their terrorists I hope the numbers keep mounting. KEEP BUILDING !!
13. Answer, Israel baby !!
BUILD BABY BUILD!!!   (07.24.15)
We build they bomb blast.
14. Nr.2.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (07.24.15)
Do it before the Hizbolla fighters in Syria comes back to Lebanon. Arn.Sweden.
15. Very nice thought, #4 & 7, but rather unlikely
Cameron ,   USA   (07.24.15)
Lebanon remains thoroughly under the Hez thumb. The other groups are just too spooked at a possible return to the civil war years. Completely outclassed in terms of financing, equipment, and trained fighters they are. Intimidation in the finest ME style.
16. good piece, but could be edited by 70%, far too repetitive!
Rafi ,   US   (07.24.15)
17. Israel, Has no other choice
arne ,   arne   (07.24.15)
but to continue to monitor the situation and prepare to strike at the first aggressive move.Only then will all options be on the table---This message should be served to all the enemies of Israel! (all options meaning every weapon in their arsenal)
18. proposed solution
ben Ish   (07.24.15)
I have a number of solutions that I think would be very useful in this situation. I'm thinking of problem solvers like "kiloton" and "selectable yield"
19. the major issue for israel
Dan ,   DC   (07.24.15)
hezbollah should not be allowed to exist. in 2006 israel came close to destroying it and the only barrier was the will to do so and foresight to recognize that if hezbollah had been fully crushed in 2006, assad would be long gone and an iranian threat (and deterrence) in the north would not exist, israel would have hit the iranian facilities in 2012 and things would be now very different. hezbollah will continue to act as a major deterrent to israel while iran slowly expands until iran and hezbollah constitutes an existential threat with iranian soldiers in syria and lebanon ready to invade and hold territory in israel. This is the last call -- 2006 was the first opportunity, now there are about 60 days left. Once Iran starts receiving billions, these will go to recruiting and refurbishing hezbollah and putting iranian soldiers on the border in large numbers, and we will be in a situation in which an aggressive regional super power looms over tiny israel. The luxury of even trying to help the FSA destroy Assad is gone. The tide of the war is going to change and in 2 years Syria will be back in Assad's (Iran's) hands.
20. If this is true......
DSM ,   USA   (07.25.15)
Israel must be prepared to finish off Hezbollah in a quick, spectacular fashion. If not Israel will continue to be fair game for all radicals. And let's hope this time Israel's leaders don't pull defeat out of the jaws of victory.
21. if lebanon allows a
Barney ,   usa   (07.25.15)
Hezbollah offensive then their infrastructure should be completely and totally decimated and that my friend is how you deliver a message
22. and.....
les ,   canada   (07.24.15)
israeli leaders are waiting, and giving them enough time to be ready, to start the war on THEIR TERMS...wonder where israel would be today if this happened in 1967.....?
23. where is this most secret "Den"?
Daniel Blue ,   San Francisco USA   (07.25.15)
This enquiring mind wants to know , also where did come up with all your assessments , based on what exactly ? Lebanon today is the same old same old Lebanon , there are many Lebanons inside Lebanon with different agendas and outlooks , they all know not to step on each others toes , and they all would take Hezbollah over ISIS any day of the week . No consensus is needed to fight an enemy state like Israel as far as Hezbollah is concerned and no consensus is required to defend its Shia constituents against a fanatic and murderous foe like isis be it in Syria , in Lebanon or anywhere they deem necessary . Finally , I wouldn't be too sure to call the next war a Third " LEBANON " war , the next war will have a much wider front and will be as much an Israel war touching all of Israel .
24. Nr.2 and 14.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (07.25.15)
This time Hizbollah must be Toppled and Destroyed, throughout the whole of Lebanon. This must be the last round against them. Arn.Sweden.
25. HaShem will protect Israel if Israelis obey His Commandments
Rivkah   (07.25.15)
and honor His Son Yahshua. Observing the appointed times of haShem such as the seventh day Sabbath and other Jewish Holy days, paying tithes and offerings, eating a clean foods Scriptural diet is where safety from enemies can be found. Instead of taking a vacation, take a staycation and give what would have been spent on a vacation to charity and the house of haShem. Safety is from haShem. Abide under His wings in the cleft of His rock of provision and safety.
26. 24 Arn, Sweden: Look up the fate of Tyre and Zidon (cities
Rivkah   (07.25.15)
in Lebanon) in the Scriptures and you will find they get destroyed in the latter days of Gentile world rule. Look at Isaiah chapter 23 on the burden (fate) of Tyre. In the Holy Names Bible, it warns, "The doom of Tyre..."
27. Correction:Islam prepares for war as Washington capitulates!
West is screwed & it knows it. Seems Europe has realized it has lost its future due to an avalanche of imbecilic "isms" that it produced, like: socialism, communism, nazism, but mainly....narcissism of its young generation, unwilling even to produce offspring! Nature waits for nobody, it fills in the voids, thus the Euro-apparatchik-geniuses imported foreign, genetic material in form of Muslim hordes. All done by their own hands. Imagine the sheer stupidity. Oh well, we'll survive them just as we have everyone else :-)
28. Nr.26.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (07.26.15)
Gog and Magog !.
29. Nr 25. Agree !.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (07.26.15)
Malaki chapter 4 verses - 4 “Remember ye the Law of Moses, My servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments. 5 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord. 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the land with a curse.” Arn.
30. Nr 25 and 29.
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (07.26.15)
The Remnant of Faithfull Israelis, will prevent HASHEM to put a curse on Israel. Rvelation 7. - 3 saying, “Hurt not the land, neither the sea nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” 4 And I heard the number of them that were sealed: there were sealed a hundred and fortyfour thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel. Those are the Firstfruit of Zion. God Bless all of Israel in this, for all hope of Israel and the World. Arn.Sweden.
