The next possible war with Lebanon will take the IDF the whole way to Beirut.
During the second Lebanon war, not launching a ground offensive was a major mistake done by the politicians in Jerusalem.
Today, the Generals have got the green light to immediately launch a msasive ground offensive, if Hizb”Allah attack Israel with missiles.
Brigadier-General Harzi Halevy, commander of the IDF’s Galilee Division, said that the military “is thoroughly and professionally preparing for the possibility of another war; taking into account that the enemy possesses varied fire power and it is well hidden within civilian society.”
The next war, he added, will see the IDF “Strike with full force. We will have to go inside (Lebanon) and wreak havoc – not as punishment, but because that is where the enemy is.
“A third conflict will see Lebanon suffer more than it did during the second one. We will give the Lebanese army the chance not to be ‘the enemy’; but any attack will be met with an offensive, and they will be easier to handle than Hezbollah,” Halevy said.
One of the reasons for Israel’s failure during the Second Lebanon war, was the massive International pressure to recognize Hezb”Allah as a “peace partner” in the Middle East.
Israel lived by the hope, that diplomatic consultations by the US and the EU would be able to stop the missile attack on Northern Israel.
Israel learned its lesson. The Jewish nation can not rely on any foreign power, in regards to secure the life and safety of its citizens. It has been like this since World War II.
As a follower of the Messiah Jesus, I will never hold a gun. If anyone wants to kill me, I will enter Heaven before many others. I am sure that Jesus do not want me to harm anyone.
a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
In regards to Israel, the Jews have a right to self defense. Their very calling is to be good caretakers of Zion. If the IDF had not protected Israel, the Middle East would be like Nazi-Germany in 24 hours of so. Governed by Islamic totalitarian evil.
It is interesting for all Messianic believers, to notice, that John The Baptist did not tell soldiers who asked him, to lay down their arms. We do not know who these soldiers were, but they were most likely working for the occupying forces of the Roman Empire.
Then some soldiers asked him, “And what should we do?”
He replied, “Don’t extort money and don’t accuse people falsely —be content with your pay.”
The people were waiting expectantly and were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Christ.
