While the Israeli left’s insurrection is capturing the nation’s attention, Hezbollah continues its acts of aggression and extortion along the Lebanese border. The prospect of a major war rises daily.
To analyze the situation, Caroline’s guest on the “Caroline Glick Show” this week is Tony Badran from the Washington-based Foundation for Defense of Democracy.
Tony and Caroline discussed the changed strategic environment. The United States is formally Israel’s ally against the Hezbollah terror group which controls Lebanon. But in practice, through its massive support for the Hezbollah-controlled Lebanese Armed Forces, America is protecting and empowering Hezbollah against Israel at the border and in the wider strategic arena.
“The entire Middle East will not rest until the “cancerous gland” that is Israel is removed,” said Hassan Nasrallah recently according to Hezbollah-affiliated media in Lebanon reported the Jerusalem post.
The leader of the Lebanese terror organization further warned that Palestinians today “believe more than ever in the resistance and on the axis of resistance.” He also reaffirmed that Hezbollah “stands by the Palestinians with everything we possess.”
Speaking on National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir’s Temple Mount visit on Tisha Be’Av, Nasrallah stated that “the enemy must hear a decisive stance from all Muslims.” said the Jerusalem Post.
Ben-Gvir’s visit to Temple Mount on Tisha Be’Av sparked condemnations from the Palestinian Authority as well as Arab countries such as Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Turkey and The White House.
During his speech, the Lebanese terror leader also warned Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to “beware of any foolishness. Netanyahu will hold a meeting with security chiefs Sunday to discuss the recent uptick in tensions on the northern border with the Lebanese terror group.
“Today, in particular, is the worst day in the history of the entity, as some of its people say,” said Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah in a televised speech, referring to Israel according to another Jerusalem post report.
