Senior IDF officer: Hassan Nasrallah 'must die'
The Jerusalem Post ^ | 8/20/2006 | JPOST.COM STAFF

"[Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah] must die," a senior IDF officer told The New York Times on Friday in an interview published on Sunday. There was no elaboration as to how that goal will be accomplished.

According to the officer, despite the UN ceasefire, the army will also continue to act against the supply of arms transferred from Syria to Lebanon.

With regards to Syrian arms shipments, the officer suggested that it might lead to a renewal of the conflict. "If we will see that Hizbullah is rearming itself and running southern Lebanon, I believe the next round is coming," he said.

The IDF launched a commando raid in eastern Lebanon overnight Saturday to prevent Syrian arms from reaching the terrorist organization. Although successful in their objective, one IDF officer, Lt.-Col. Imanuel Moreno, was killed in the operation.

Did they think the plans would be given to the media?

There will be another war. Most Isralis expect one but Olmert and Peretz will not be around to lead it with the hesistancy and lack of seriousness they demonstrated in the past month.

(No more Olmert! No more Kadima! No more Oslo!)

"An so, the Israeli military vows to murder the leader of Hezbollah. The United Nations has been informed, and we will bring you exact details of the Israeli assassination plan when we get them from our sources. Back to you Jim."

Poison his falafel sandwich. Sprinkle poison dust in his turban before he puts it on in the morning

Maybe so. But, to have a senior IDF member announce it is absurdly compromising and inflammatory. Hezballah will be waiting for them when they try it. Better to be covert and strike quick and deadly. The decision should be made in secret in the back rooms of the Mossad, never publicly spoken of before or after.

I think that Mossad has him high on his target list. They mean it. They are going to hit him by any means necessary.

The IDF needs to take a lesson from WWII.
