Beware of the Quiet

Just because we haven't heard much (or been attacked much) from Hizbullah in Southern Lebanon does not mean that the've been idling peacefully the past few years.  The truth is that they've been arming seriously, and Israel is their target.

Some people find it annoying, call me a killjoy, since I refuse to fall for the fancy lala Left fairy tales.  I'm a realist and a pragmatist.

“I was expecting the war this summer,” said Faris Jamil, a municipal official and small-business owner. “It’s late.” He has yet to finish rebuilding his three-story house, destroyed by an Israeli bomb that year.

In 2006, Hezbollah guerrillas crossed the border a few hundred yards from the town center, ambushed an Israeli patrol and retreated through Aita al Shaab with the bodies of two Israeli soldiers.

Hezbollah officials and supporters said they were now sending a pointed message to Israel through their efforts to rebuild, repopulate and rearm the south.

“We are not sleeping,” said Ali Fayyad, a Hezbollah official and member of Parliament. “We are working.” He receives visitors every weekend in a family home in Taibe, the site of a deadly tank battle in 2006

That war was Israel's worst.  In a very crucial way it was worse than the 1973 Yom Kippur War.  The Yom Kippur War started off with Israel totally at a disadvantage, but at least it ended with Israel in better position.  The "Second Lebonese War" was worse, because we encouraged foreign interference and never really defeated our enemies.  Basically all we achieved was a tepid ceasefire and some foreign troops to blur dangers and make our position even less safe.  The Arabs have been rearming, while we've been our usual overconfident selves.

We had better wisen up very quickly!

the criminaly insane traitorous,pathetic self hating leftist's,[and that includes Bibi]who have been ruling Israel the last 30yrs,have given up on their land,and are resolved for an eventuall total defeat and take over by the arabs,in any other normal country these traitorous pieces of human garbage,would have been deposed via a popular uprising,
and would be hanging by their miserable necks.
i guess the citizens of Israel have decided to follow in the footsteps of their granparents of 65 yrs ago,and march peacefully to the gas chambers the nazi arabs have prepared for them.
we weep you Israel.
