Islamonazis everywhere, threaten the US, Israel and the West.
It’s sad testament of the present state of affairs, that good journalists like Weinthal have to spend precious time spelling out what should be plainly obvious to most people.
Hezbollah’s War on Israel and the U.S.

London – Threatened by a Syrian-regime weapons convoy destined for the terrorist organization Hezbollah, Israel’s air force destroyed on Wednesday a cache of military arms believed to be Russian-made SA-17 anti-aircraft missiles.
Though Israel has neither confirmed nor denied the obliteration of the missiles, the New York Times reported that Israel’s government issued advance notice to the Obama administration of its preemptive strike.
The British Times quoted an Israeli intelligence officer declaring, “Weapons systems that make our air force vulnerable will not be allowed to fall into the hands of terrorist groups.”
The primary terror group along Israel’s northern border contributing to the demise of Middle East peace is the anti-U.S. Lebanese-based Hezbollah entity.
According to Mideast security expert estimates, Hezbollah has amassed an arsenal of 60,000 rockets. As my FDD colleague Jonathan Schanzer highlights,” Until now, with troubling news coming out of Iran, Syria, Gaza, and elsewhere, the Lebanon front has been largely ignored. But beware. A new conflict with Israel and Lebanon may be looming. And this conflict could erupt in a flash.”
The anti-Israel Shiite terror organization Hezbollah serves as Iran’s chief ally in Lebanon. Prior to al-Qaeda’s mass murder of Americans on 9/11, Hezbollah had killed the most Americans in acts of terror, including hundreds of U.S. military personnel in the early 1980s. Its murder spree would extend to Iraq where, in 2007, Hezbollah operative Ali Mussa Daqduq was implicated in the murders of five U.S. Armed Forces soldiers.
The question mark over the second Obama administration is whether his new national defense team will twist the arms of reluctant European leaders to outlaw Hezbollah. The U.S. designated Hezbollah as a terrorist entity in the 1990s.
