Iran Positions Israel In Its Cross Hairs
Investors.com ^ | November 6, 2009 | INVESTORS BUSINESS DAILY Staff

Mideast: Iran tests an advanced warhead design as it gets caught shipping weapons to Hezbollah. Syria is reported to give the group operational control over Scud missiles. It's five minutes to midnight.

Tyranny abhors a vacuum. While the U.S. and the West dither in Hamlet-like fashion over whatever we shall do in places such as Afghanistan and Iran, the Axis of Evil is in full swing in its plans to destroy Israel and threaten Europe and America.

Israel last week seized what it said was the largest arms cache ever intercepted in the region. Israeli navy commandos boarded the Francop, a commercial ship with an Antiguan flag and sailing near Cyprus, presumably on course for Syria or Lebanon.

Israeli defense officials said the arms were destined for Hezbollah — the Lebanese Shiite terrorist group founded, financed and controlled by Tehran — and that documents found onboard showed that they originated in Iran. The officials said the arms cache would have given Hezbollah, which fought a monthlong war against the Jewish state in 2006, enough firepower to sustain a full month of fighting on the scale of that conflict.

Iran is supposed to be forbidden from exporting arms, and two U.N. resolutions call for disbanding and disarming Hezbollah, a group that has effectively neutered the Lebanese democracy in which it now participates with veto power over any action by Beirut.

I’m sure Israel has Iran in theirs as well.

This reminds me of the two snipers facing down each other - and the Ireali sniper shoots the enemy in the eye via the bad guy’s scope.

Iran and Israel should both refrain from engaging the other in war.

And warhawks in the USA should stop egging on the prospect of a clash for crazy apocalyptic reasons.

Iran and all its anti-Israel buddies think they can annihilate Israel. They could not be more wrong.

And that way before Iran even had crosshairs.

Nobody here is a war hawk. In fact, great many people speak up against our involvement abroad. When most people cheer Israel, it is for that country not to give in to pressure it is under from all sides.

Don’t mess with God and His children; you will lose... Forever.

Are you referring to those who have accepted Christ, or to those who actively choose to reject Christ?

Israel will reduce Iran to little more than a burnt out cinder.

Welcome to FR.

Please contemplate this:

If the Arabs gave up all their weapons tomorrow, there would be peace.

If Israel gave up all her weapons tomorrow, there would be a Holocaust.

Israel should just sit still and wait for the mullahs to stuff a few nuclear missiles down their throats???

That is what you are talking about even if you don't realize it.

Not such a great plan for the Israelis.

Too bad you didn't wait until after the Sabbath to post that. I'd expect a few more missiles coming your way new person.

“forbidden from exporting arms, and two U.N. resolutions call for disbanding and disarming Hezbollah”

One more act of aggression, and we’ll sign another resolution against you!
Get the U.S. out of the U.N., and the U.N. out of the U.S.!

Maybe the UN will pass another resolution banning Iran from shipping weapons to fellow terrorist. Maybe they should get real tough and pass three resolutions. The weakness of the cowards at the UN and white house are forcing Israel to take action against Iran.

This is how those like you debate:

1. Make something up.

2. Attribute what you just made up to the person you’re debating.

Conservativism and apocalyptic warmongering are not synonymous, as your toss-off insult suggests.
