Iran Behind Katyushas in Galilee?

Pages: 1 2

Whether or not Nisman is right about Monday night’s rockets, there is no doubt that the Iranian-led Middle Eastern axis of evil has been under serious pressure of late. With Iran increasingly subject to both sanctions and sabotage, the Assad regime’s existence on the line, and terror proxies Hizbullah and Hamas—particularly the former—in a precarious position, the threats and bluster coming especially from Tehran have a shrill and even desperate ring to them.

The question is whether the West can muster the resolve to keep turning up the heat on these actors. To be sure, cornered tigers can be particularly dangerous, especially when having a nuclear program. And with Sunni Islamist regimes sprouting from the soil of the “Arab spring,” Iran’s axis is hardly the only cloud on the horizon.

Still, in the ever-volatile Middle East, Iran and its allies pose the central threat at the moment. Israel, whose residents know all about booms in the night, is trying hard to make that clear and point the way to neutralizing that threat.

    With all its bluster, Iran doesn't want a head to head confrontation with Israel. Iran knows it doesn't stand a chance. So, they use proxies to do their dirty work. IF only…if only Israel could somehow hold on it shouldn't be too long before these people kill themselves off. It's too bad but the end result of living in a Death Cult is…Death.

    Gee, I guess the Israelis should have to account for every round fired against those poor, innocent peace-loving Iranians while they and their minions fire at will. Once upon a time armies wore uniforms. Now, every towelhead is a "civilian" and can cry foul when fire is returned. Combatants not in uniform formerly were executed on the spot. Now the good guys have to sift them all out. It's a new game, new rules. If we have to account for every offensive move against a clearly defined and self-proclaimed enemy (while they don't), then perhaps we should disregard the obligation and fire at will.

    It probably doesn't bother iran or hizbullah that hundreds of thousands of Israeli muslims live in the general area being targeted by their missiles. After all, if any are killed the iranians can always blame Israel (somehow) and the islamic victims will get to go to paradise. Because Israel is humane and democratic it would never announce that it would like to wipe iran off the map. But it's fun to speculate about world reaction should it do so.

    In a warning of another kind on Sunday, Iranian defense minister Ahmad Vahidi had already talked of “150,000 missiles” hitting Israel if it attacks Iran.

    Israel must respond to those threats by letting Iran know that before it lets that happen, that Israel will react to protect its citizens by nuking those missiles into oblivion.

    Israel also needs to make it publicly known as well that it does not lack the will to use nukes if that is what it takes to stop Iran from getting the Islamic bomb. Indeed, it must show Iran that it will not back down or be intimidated.

    I think Isreal should get the coordinates of where the rocket was fired from and use about 10 artillery pieces in a 30-60 minute response. Make sure it is completely out-ofproportion!!
    That should do it!!

    I see Iranian actions are the result of mixture of retribution fright and contempt of western leaders tied by their democracies.

    Where can one give more money to Israel, to put the Iron Dome defenses in place,
    in the Galilee?

    • ziontruth

      The whole philosophy behind the Iron Dome defenses is misplaced. Playing defense against guerrilla attacks is well known to be a losing proposition. Israel's only prospect of long-term peace lies in removing the sources of those attacks. Where the sources are in the Land of Israel, the entire enemy population must be expelled and the area repopulated by Jews. If the source of attack is outside, on the borders, for example in Lebanon, then an effective solution that minimizes Jewish Army losses would be the time-honored scorched earth policy.

      Of course, both solutions require the Jewish State to abandon international "law," which declares them illegal (thus giving the victory to the Islamic imperialists), and to replace it with the Jewish laws of warfare, in which they are perfectly legal. Israel will sooner or later need to resign from the United Nations. May it happen quickly.
