Peretz says Israel intends to 'break' Hizbullah
Jerusalem Post ^ | 7/13/06

Posted on 07/13/2006 8:57:19 PM PDT by LibWhacker

Defense Minister Amir Peretz said Thursday night that, "We expected Hizbullah to break the rules, and now we intend to break them.

"We do not mean for this event to end when the situation returns to how things were a few days ago," he said.

Peretz's comments came before his meeting with Assistant Secretary of State David Welch.

When I first read this, I thought he was saying Israel intended to break the rules -- in addition to breaking Hizbullah.

Too bad... I actually wish they would break the rules; rules don't apply when dealing with koranimals.

Good hunting, Israel!

Israel tried everything for the sake of peace. There is nothing left; extermination of Israel is now declared as a short-term goal. Hezbollah and hamas must be destroyed.

The question now becomes, do the Hizbullah puppet masters (Syria and Iran) allow Israel to delve deeply into southern Lebanon to break Hizbullah or does Syria become directly involved. If Syria and Iran believe now is the time to press Israel I would think problems will shortly begin in the West Bank as well.

Danny Alayon (Israeli Ambassador to the US) earlier today stated Israel's first task was to cut off all outside aid to Hizbullah and he then went on to say that although he wouldn't discuss what options Israel would take with regard to those two that Syria and Iran were playing with "fire".

Hizbullah Hamas PLO just symptoms, for the cure you need to go to the root. Islam. When Israel starts to threaten Islam then they will make progress.

Right now a large percentage of the worlds Jews are in the cross-hairs. Israel needs to put 25 percent of the worlds moslems in the cross-hairs. THEN, they will listen. But you can kill all the terrorist today and tomorrow ISLAM will just go ahead and produce twice as many.

I think that's the real question. If they plan on permanently breaking Hizbullah, they're going to have to cripple Syria's ability to aid these thugs and possibly Iran's ability as well. Otherwise, they're looking at a permanent (Israeli) presence in southern Lebanon and I don't think they want that.

We'll see if Peretz can live up to the Moshe Dayan-Golda Meir-Menachem Begin-Ariel Sharon tradition.

Its hard for me to see him getting really tough and its hard to believe the United States would allow things to go too far in Israel's favor.

In 1982 the United States stopped Begin from destroying Arafat and the PLO when the Israeli army had them trapped in Beirut.

That's when our Marines landed with the nasty consequences.

We'll see who has the cojones to deal with Hezbollah and its backers including our own leaders.

Yep, I don't really see this stopping at Lebanon's border with Syria. That'll only happen if Lebanon's gov't puts its foot down and kicks Hizbullah out, which I don't believe they have the ability to pull off.

But maybe with Israel's assistance...

Veeeeery dicey situation!

Saw a nice quote the other day that sure has given me some ideas!:
"Those who oppose the mullahs oppose Islam itself; eliminate the mullahs and Islam shall disappear in fifty years. It is only the mullahs who can bring the people into the streets and make them die for Islam-- begging to have their blood shed for Islam." -Ayatollah Khomeini

With the media bias as well as the bias here in the USA towards Israel, I doubt that any of the public know what is really going on.

These people have literally been fighting each other for THOUSANDS of years. Any involvement by us is a no win situation. We should stay out of this and let them kill each other off. There will never be peace in that region until one side or the other is completely wiped out.

BREAKING NEWS!!! This just in...Rep. John Murtha has issued a press release calling for the immediate redeployment of Israeli Defense Forces to a location "over the horizon." Senator John Kerry almost had a stroke while dashing to the microphones to announce his agreement with the Pennsylvania AbScamer and Vietnam Marine Veteran. "We're submitting a bill tomorrow to cut off war-fighting aid to those championing the war while "sitting in their air-conditioned offices on their big, fat backsides in Jerusalem."

Off mike Kerry was heard to say, "Hey John. You think anybody will fall for this shi+?"

Mention of 1982 reminds me that the "realists" seem incapable of getting into the heads of religious fanatics. This is true whether one is talking about Hizbullah or Branch dravidians.

My favorite scene is the one when JCVD is riding the bus the night before the big fight. He looks out the window, and in the reflection he sees Chong Li gazing menacingly at him. He turns around in fear but...no ones there. LOL

Why is it that in every Van Damme movie he's being chased by the French Foreign Legion?

I think Iran and Syria must have given Hizbullah certain assurances to get them to act. I would guess they are going to send terrorist reinforcements and other aid. I wonder if they're stupid enough to try an arial attack on Israel. Their grasp of reality seems pretty tenuous.

I have yet to see one constructive thing posted that we could do that would actually do any good. I have spent time in the Middle East both in Israel and Arab states, and have seen that this is a religious war and neither side will ever be satisfied until they eliminate the other. We can threaten and/or bribe both sides for a temporary solution of sorts, but that does not resolve the basic issues between them. Let them kill each other over there all they want. Our meddling in their fight is what brought us 911.

You are using the Arab argument, "They are Infidels and must die".

Nonsense. Israelis would happily accept peaceful co-existence with Muslims and any Muslim country if their security could be assured. It's the Muslims that want to commit genocide on Jews.

It's a religious war or more accurately a war of hatred and aggression only from the Muslim side. From the Jewish/Israeli side it is a war of survival, plain and simple.

The Jews are more than willing to tolerate Islam. It is the Islamics who will not tolerate Jews. In the view of Islamics the Prophet conquered the Jews and eclipsed Judaism. With the rise of Israel all that was undone. Much of Islam has murder in their hearts not only against Israel, but also the West. That is why they must die.

Israel's government and security forces commit as many atrocities as the Arabs. I have seen how Arabs are treated in Israel myself, we even treated our darkies better here back in the '50s.

As I said before, these people have been fighting for thousands of years. There have been right and wrong actions on both sides. We need to stay out of this and let them fight amongst themselves.

As a true sign of your bias, explain to me why it is ok for Israel to have nukes but wrong for Iran/Libya/any Arab state to have them.

"As a true sign of your bias, explain to me why it is ok for Israel to have nukes but wrong for Iran/Libya/any Arab state to have them."

Because the psychotic muslims have stated that they will "Wipe Israel off the map" once they have the means to do so.

Because the fact that any muslims remain alive AT ALL in the Middle East, despite Israel's massive nuclear arsenal, is a testament to Israeli restraint.

Islamic Pakistan has nukes and they have yet to use one against Israel.

I still want the reason that it is ok for Israel to have nukes.

The Arabs let Jews fleeing Nazi Germany stay in the Holy Land. Their generosity was repaid by the Jews evicting the Arabs from their own lands. Most of the original Israeli leaders were bomb throwing terrorists themselves.

We are a country that has as one of its founding principles the freedom of religion. The fact that you are encouraging hate crimes solely on the basis of religion makes you just as bad as them. The Christan church had the Inquisition. Even today the church fights among its different sects, just look at the Irish problem.

As I have posted, let them fight it out amongst themselves over there. We have nothing to gain by interfering in their conflict.

Because Islam wishes to rule the world with sharia law and historically has shown it will do whatever is necessary to accomplish that. They want to destroy western civilization; Israel doesn't.
