The more the Israelis bomb and commit murder by targeted assassinations of Palestinians in the Gaza then the more Palestinian fighters are likely to retaliate. It is exactly what the Israelis want. It will eventually give them the excuse they need to invade the Gaza and put it under full military occupation.

Now the Israelis have upped the ante by assassinating Hezbollah’s number two leader, Imad Mughniyeh, but they have not admitted to the killing because they want Hezbollah to make the first strike against the Israelis. That way they can claim that Hezbollah has provoked Israel thus giving the Israelis casus belli to go to war once again against Hezbollah. The world knows exactly who was responsible for Mughniyeh’s death but by denying it the Israelis think that in the event of Hezbollah retaliating they then have the right to strike back in their usual murderous way.

This is Israel’s standard modus operandi. They always like to make it seem as though they are the ones that have been attacked first and that they are merely retaliating. In reality it is they that have manoeuvred those that they wish to attack into seemingly have struck the first blow against Israel.

The trick for Israel now is to get both Hamas and Hezbollah to strike back at Israel in such a way that Israel can retaliate by launching full scale attacks on both the Gaza and south Lebanon in the hope of drawing in Syria and Iran to the fight by accusing them of supplying arms and weapons to Hezbollah and Hamas. This will then provide cause for the Israeli Air Force to attack Syria and Iran’s so-called nuclear facilities, an event that will draw the US into the war.

If it all sounds rather familiar it’s because it has all happened before. The difference is last time the Israelis tried this they used the capture of their soldiers as casus belli to attack Hezbollah whereas in reality the Israelis had planned the attack on south Lebanon months ahead of the so-called ‘kidnappings’. Olmert even tried to explain it away by saying that it was a contingency plan in case Israeli soldiers were ‘kidnapped’!

And now the Israelis are trying it on again. For how much longer are the peoples of the world going to let the right-wing Israeli Zionists get away this sort of warmongering nonsense?

If it was Israel who was responsible for killing him then Hezbollah should feel pretty worried about the infiltration the Israelis must have made of their organisation. Mughniyeh was well protected and on the move constantly to avoid death at the hands of the Israelis - yet they still managed to rig a car bomb on his personal vehicle (as opposed to another vehicle detonated next to his car, for example) and get him like that? If it was Israel then Hezbollah should be panicing that their security systems are either so lax as to fail to protect a personal vehicle of a leader or so infiltrated that someone on the inside made sure it happened.

Muslim against Sharia, targetted killings and assassinations are totally immoral and reprehensible no matter what the target. For thousands of years man has developed laws by which we ALL need to abide. Throw them away and we will disappear in to anarchy. If targetted killings are good enough for the West then why should they not be good enough for everyone else? Where will it end?

Why should, say, Alan Dershowitz not be targetted for assassination; afterall he is as big an enemy to Islam as Mugniyah was to Zionism? What makes you so self-righteous?

That Israel is, next to the U.S., the largest terrorist state in the world is a known fact to the indigenous Palestinians, desperately trying to stay alive in the face of constant Israeli warring, blockades and targeted assassinations.

Israel, as this article shows, in 1987 created HAMAS now, they are using it as an excuse to inflict collective punishment on the Palestinians.

1987: Hamas Forms with the Support of Israeli Intelligence

Sheikh Ahmed Yassin forms Hamas as the military arm of his Islamic Association, which had been licensed by Israel ten years earlier (see 1973-1978). According to Charles Freeman, a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, “Israel started Hamas. It was a project of Shin Bet, which had a feeling that they could use it to hem in the PLO.

One might call that madness, but it's a cold, calculating madness by the Zionists.

They will not be satisfied till every Palestinian in Gaza is either killed, starved to death or herded off to Egypt's Sinai.

Once the Palestinians are ethnically cleansed and or living in the Sinai, it won't be long before the Shin Bet starts launching Qassams from the Sinai back into Israel, giving that murderous gang the excuse it needs to invade the Sinai for "security" purposes, when in fact, the actual reason is to steal--AGAIN--Egypt's oil fields in the Sinai.

Israel, seeing that their pet bitch, GW Bush, has less than one year left in office, is getting desperate to goad the U.S. into fighting yet another of Israel's wars, this time against Iran.

Israel will keep up its brutal campaign against the Palestinians, all the while, murdering Lebanese and Syrians, in the hope that will provoke them into fighting back.

That will give Israel the excuse it needs to bomb to hell and gone Lebanon and Syria, while its favorite band of mercenaries the Pentagon, blow Iran to smithereens.

And yet, Israel likes to say it's a peaceful nation. The only peace Israel wants is: a "piece" of Jordan; a "piece" of Syria; a "piece" of Lebanon; a "piece" of Egypt; a "piece" of Iraq; a "piece" of Saudi Arabia and whatever "pieces" are left after Israel finishes it's genocidal extermination of the Palestinians.

The Jew supremacists need to start their big war ASAP. If there is no big war soon (and no martial law in the U.S.), then, the handing of power over to another U.S. administration is a risky proposition for the Jewish criminals and their goy puppets in the U.S. government.

Any semblance of a real, independent investigation into the 9/11 false-flag attacks in the U.S., which may happen say, under an Obama administration, will no doubt show Mossad involvement (it was most likely a Cheney/Mossad arrangement). Which of course means the end of "Israel" as the bloodthirsty and delusional Jew supremacists imagine it.

They need their big regional war and/or WW3, and they need it soon.

Damian Lataan,

“targetted killings and assassinations are totally immoral and reprehensible no matter what the target.”

Could you come up with a more idiotic statement? Blowing up this piece of shit saved countless lives.

Muslims Against Sharia is a paradox. It is like saying Zionists Against Jews. It shows how ignorant the founders of M.A.S. are. they are laughing- stock of the muslim world.
Imad Mugniyeh is a hero and Israeli cowards cannot face their enemies in battle fields and now that they have committed this cirme they don't have the courage to admit it.

Muslim against Sharia reckons: “Blowing up this piece of shit saved countless lives.”

There are many folk around who think that Barak, Sharon and Olmert, for example, are also ‘pieces of shit’, as you so subjectively put it, who, had they been blown up, would also have saved many Palestinian and Lebanese lives. But those of us that aren’t self-righteous fascists believe that such people who have committed crimes against humanity should be dealt with through the courts of international law. The alternative, as I mentioned, is total anarchy and every person for themselves.

It is the likes of you, Muslim against Sharia, who seem to be making the idiotic statements. Have you tried getting your brain into gear before letting your mouth motor away?

What a boring blog. Yawn.

A lot of talking but no action, Lebanese writer living in Australia, and not in Lebanon.

Why don't you go back to your country and start writing first-hand experience instead of all this blah blah?

You are not credible at all.

Anonymous, a few people have taken a stab at suggesting where I may come from and most get it right - not that it's actually anybody's business. However, you couldn't be more wrong if you tried!

You have, though, succeeded in demonstrating what a racist piece of slime you are.
