It seems the recent execution-style killings of Palestinian fighters in the Gaza and the West Bank together with the car-bombing (an Israeli speciality) in Beirut aimed at killing a Hamas official but ending up killing two Hezbollah men, were deliberate acts of barbarity designed to provoke a reaction from Palestinian fighters that, in turn, would provide a casus belli for Israel to renew their attacks against Hamas in the Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon in the hope that such a war would escalate to include Iran and the US.
Three West Bank Palestinian fighters were executed unnecessarily yesterday while three fighters in the Gaza were callously killed in a helicopter attack without being given the opportunity to surrender. Two Hezbollah officials were also killed when a car-bomb designed to assassinate a Hamas official exploded as the two Hezbollah men were trying to diffuse it. The attempt had all the hallmarks of a Mossad operation. Of particular interest is the design of the bomb; packaged as three linked bombs that look as though they are easily diffused with exposed wires and timer/trigger etc., except one of the packages usually has a well hidden trigger device embedded in it which is then set off remotely by cell-phone or some other radio signal – all classic Mossad stuff.
It’s been a year since the Israelis attacked the Gaza deliberately killing hundreds of innocent civilians including women and children. Now the word is the Israelis are again preparing to attempt to destroy Hamas in the Gaza but are simply waiting for an appropriate opportunity in the shape of some casus belli that will provide them with the excuse they need to attack. Once underway, such a war, they hope, will quickly escalate to include Hezbollah who will use Iranian-supplied rockets to attack Israel which will then provide Israel with an excuse to attack Iran.
Israel’s ultimate endgame has not changed. They want regime change in Iran so that they can deal with Hamas in the Gaza and West Bank and Hezbollah in Lebanon. Israel can then freely move in and takeover while the rest of the world is distracted by war with Iran.
They’ve tried several times before without success and sooner or later they’re going to try again.
