Hear O Israel.
Well, if you won’t listen to me, maybe you’ll listen to him. No disrespect intended, but it seems that Israel is in for another border invasion, and this one reportedly has between 300 and 500 busloads of Lebanese and Palestinians being moved to the borders… to say nothing of large numbers of others heading in the direction of the borders, as well. Not being one to say ‘I told you so’… I did note at the time of the article I wrote on Friday May 20, that it had all the hallmarks of a rehearsal.
“We are preparing on all possible fronts and we will position both command and troops at forward positions,” IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz said ahead of upcoming Naksa Day border protests.
Now the Iranians, in the guise of the Muslim Brotherhood, are going to test the IDF to the max. The so-called ‘Nakba Day’ protests were something only an Arab could dream up. Commemorating a battle in which the collective armies of the Arab nations got the horse pucky kicked out of them by a tiny, almost insignificant, country would seem to the western mind to be a waste of time.
To the Arab mind, steeped in seventh century barbarity and fostered in a cult-like religion where fanaticism, sadism and brutality are everyday occurrences, the constant reminder serves to foster their rage, which is never far from the surface at the best of times.
They are going to attempt to cross in overwhelming numbers on four fronts. Sounds very much like an invasion, doesn’t it? The IDF had better hope there’s not a couple of regiments of tanks behind them.
I don’t mean to sound alarmist, and some of my Israeli friends will probably scoff at me, but I know at least one who doesn’t think it’s so crazy.
Wars have been launched with less pretext.
Semper Vigilans, Semper Fidelis
