It is becoming apparent that the frenzied Israeli attack on the people of the Gaza Strip was designed specifically to inflame Hezbollah and provoke them into a war with Israel; a war that would quickly escalate to involve Iran and the US for the purpose of ultimately bringing about regime change in Iran. Furthermore, this was all supposed to happen before Bush left office when it was hoped that war with Iran would be unavoidable by the time Obama took office.

As well as mercilessly hammering the Palestinian people in the Gaza, which served the purpose of enraging Hezbollah – not to mention the entire Arab street and most of the rest of the world – the Israelis also massed troops on their northern borders with south Lebanon while their warplanes flew low-level missions into Lebanese airspace in a deliberate attempt to further provoke Hezbollah.

A few early model non-lethal Katyusha rockets were launched from just inside Lebanon which Hezbollah denied any knowledge of, and which no other group claimed responsibility for, making it likely to have been a false flag attempt by Israeli special forces to further provoke war. Fortunately, the Israeli special forces endeavours with these captured early model Katyusha rockets proved to be patently transparent even to the Israeli propaganda machine who were content in the end to point the finger at some Lebanese based Palestinian group rather than embarrass themselves by directly blaming Hezbollah, especially after having accused Hezbollah of having now accumulated tens of thousands of sophisticated rockets from Iran. The chances of any Palestinian group unilaterally launching anything from south Lebanon into Israel without Hezbollah’s knowledge is nigh on non-existent.

As the war against the Palestinians in the Gaza went on, Hezbollah refused to bite with any acts of war against Israel. Hezbollah gave moral support to the Gazans, as did the Iranians, but refused to be drawn in to any war. Israel tried to inflame and anger Hezbollah further by stepping up their atrocities in the Gaza striking at UN buildings and schools where civilians and children were known to be but still Hezbollah refused to bite. In the end the Israelis simply ran out of time as literally the last minutes of Bush’s presidency slipped away. And with it went the chances of provoking the Final Confrontation they so desperately seek against Iran – at least that is until Netanyahu gets his shot at it after the Israeli elections next month.

There were some of those rockets found inside Lebanon with timers and no one present.
Set up by the Israeli Internal Security Service, Shin Bet to again provide the Zionist regime with the lies it needed to launch another war of aggression.

All made possible by the Israeli Ministry of Truth, or as they call it, the National Information Directorate.

Special spin body gets media on message, says Israel

Rachel Shabi in Tel Aviv Guardian UK January 2, 2009

Israel believes its has won broad international support in the media for its actions in Gaza thanks to its PR strategy, which through a new body has for months been concerned with formulating plans and role-playing to ensure that government officials deliver a clear, unified message to the world's press. The body, known as the National Information Directorate, was set up eight months ago following recommendations from an Israeli inquiry into the 2006 Lebanon war. Its role is to deal with hasbara - meaning, in Hebrew, "explanation", and referring variously to information, spin, and propaganda. The directorate's chief, Yarden Vatikai, said: "The hasbara apparatus needed a body that would co-ordinate its agencies, coordinate the messages and become a platform for co-operation between all the agencies that deal with communication relations and public diplomacy."

The directorate acts across ministries and decides key messages on a daily basis. Of its core messages for the media, there has been the advice that Hamas broke the ceasefire agreements with Israel; that Israel's objective is the defence of its population; and that Hamas is a terror organisation targeting Israeli civilians. "In general, we think we are succeeding in getting the message across," said Vatikai. Israeli officials have also enjoyed a clear edge with coverage. An Israeli foreign ministry assessment of eight hours of coverage across international broadcast media reported that Israeli representatives got 58 minutes of airtime while the Palestinians got only 19 minutes. ...

The Israeli Ministry of Truth was launched specifally to handle the planned Gazan invasion EIGHT months ago.

"Cease-fire? We don't need no stinkin' cease-fire"

Also a pathetic attempt at making something out of nothing when they reported that a shot had been fired from across the Syrian border at a passing Israeli patrol.

I don't believe that it even happened, as why should it, since their media can report an event without having to prove that it happened at all !

Stirring, stirring, and hoping something will eventuate as it could even out of a single rifle shot - like the pistol shots in Sarajevo in 1914.

Yes, it's true that Iran is the Israeli immediate big time target for America to obliterate using her nukes with tens of millions of innocents to be Holocausted - literally.

The trick for Israel was to stick Iran with having supplied Hamas with an endless supply of Qassams.

Two problems with this though;

1. Qassams are offensive weapons, but never mind that they are totally useless and feature exclusively on our screens and not in actuality on the ground in Sderot, Ashkelon, Ashdod and Beer-Sheba.
So, why would Iran jeopardise Gazans' safety by supplying them with offensive weapons - useless or not ? Answer, they would not.

2. Were Iran to supply useful weapons to Gazans they would be defensive only, which would be anti tank shoulder launched weapons and shoulder launched ground to air missile weapons against marauding helicopter gunships.

I suspect drones and F-16s can fly high enough to be out of reach of them, but gunships need to fly low.

Israel could not complain if their tanks were punctured or their gunships were shot down over Gaza for the obvious reason of Gazans' self defense.

Conclusion 1: because Iran does not supply these defensive weapons it proves that it does not provide offensive Qassams !

Conclusion 2: Hamas spokesmen i see on TV are secretly gloating - watch their faces - over their success at allowing the people of the world to think that Hamas represents Gazans when in actuality they represent Israel and always have.

An instance of their treason; how responsible is it of them to hold out for better cease fire terms by making belligerent and defiant statements in the face of a all powerful aggressor when Gazans have nothing but useless rifles and - stones. Not even IEDs to blow up tanks with !

They know that every day's delay in achieving a cease fire easily results in 50 dead Gazans. Why delays ? Hamas wants Israel's assault to continue against Gazans in order to achieve Israel's larger purpose of working up a casus belli to clobber Iran with American nukes.

Cheez, why is this difficult to understand ? Maybe because deep treason is too mind numbing and demoralising to accept ?

Additionally they tried this with an allegation that someone from Syria had fired a shot at a passing IDF patrol.

It shows they are trying on several fronts to ramp up a generalised tension in the hope that it adds to the case for a nuking by America of Iran.

Last night the BBC still goes on about the tunnels being re excavated on the Gaza/Egypt border as they might be used to smuggle weapons; which they always fail to add are completely useless.

The fact that Hamas is a creature of Israel is the biggest threat to Iran as Israel is always assured of its silence when Qassam rockets of myth fall on southern Israel which leaves TV viewers with the impression that the since the charges are not refuted they must be true.
