Lebanon’s election upset opens Iran’s second anti-Israel front after Syria

The Iranian-backed Shiite bloc was set Monday, May 7, to sweep the board of Lebanon’s first election in 9 years with 70-80 seats in the 128-member parliament. Most of the votes have been counted. With this spectacular win for Iran, the IDF’s decision Sunday to warn the Israeli public that Iranian, Hizballah and Shiite units were poised ready in Syria to rain missiles and rockets down on northern Israel, has fallen flat. This line was born of a presumption by Israel’s decision-makers that strident publicity would deter Tehran from going through with its revenge attack. However, the election victory of the Hizballah-led bloc in Lebanon – if anything, energized Tehran and it proxy’s plans to go on the offensive against Israel. Before the vote count was finished, Hizballah’s Hassan Nasrallah proclaimed a “great political and moral victory for the ‘resistance’ that protects the sovereignty of the country” against Israel.

Prime minister Saad Hariri alleged that an attempt had been made to liquidate his Sunni group, the Future Movement, which dropped from 31 to 21 mandates. Even if he does form the next Lebanese government, his position will be weak. Hizballah and its allies can now walk in and rule the roost in government, the intelligence services and the army, as Iran’s faithful agent. Along with their Iranian masters, they now look forward to hitting Israel twice – with missiles from Syria and possibly from Lebanon too as well as their takeover of Beirut.
Israel’s information outlets turned a new page after the Lebanese election. IDF officials began talking about the air bases in northern and central Israel being the main target of hostile missiles. Gone were suggestions that the Iranian and Hizballah missile crews had run into trouble in lining up their 110-Fatteh ground missiles in positions close to the Israeli border. This idea had been overtaken by events.

Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman spoke of a “complicated” prospect in store, adding “We are ready for any scenario.” This sounded as though Israel was now braced not only for a missile attack, but possible alternative acts of aggression, such hostile  infiltration of its air space and ground raids of bases or civilian locations.

    You better do a preemptive attack on Iranian missles in Syria and Lebanon and destroy Hamas in Gaza like in the six day war of 1967 or thousands of Israelis will die .
    The survival of Israel is at stake

      Russia did not tolerate US missiles stationed in Turkey.
      America did not tolerate Russian missiles stationed in Cuba.

      Israel will not tolerate missiles from Fascist Iran stationed in Syria or Lebanon.

        That is a great comparison …. really! One, most people tend to deflect from in condemnation of Israel. The United nations should not condemn one country for doing exactly as all united nations countries have done for many decades. Time for equality … and a tac nuke or two. Israel has to preemptively hammer Lebanon. Drive out every last Hezbollah radical and no one will criticize that war when they realize the peace they obtain. I believe even Palestinians will settle down once Hamas is destroyed … no matter the casualties. Time for peace in the ME and god knows it wont happen while ever radical muslims attack israel in every inconceivable way.

      Its too late now. They should’ve hit them early when they were setting up. Israel is going to kill tens of millions (Damascus a ruinous heap) but they only have to kill eight million. Maybe that’ll leave a half million Israelis. God will save a remnant but mostly messianic Jews and maybe conservatives who actually do love God. Most of Israel won’t survive what’s coming. You can’t have gay pride marches in Jerusalem and get away with it. But God is going to rise up and the deaths of millions will fall upon the mountains of Israel. Not because the jews are anything special. They’re people, nothing more, nothing less, just like everyone else, but God made promises to them long ago and God never changes.

      Read Ezekiel 38-39. Both chapters. Its on the doorstep.

        You purport a lot to god and yet say so much BS about Israels demise in contrast to gods words….. what … you think your greater than god or know more… your a troll is all…a fugwitted troll.

    If a single rocket is fired, Israel should retaliate and not stop until the threat from the failed states of Lebanon & Syria is permanently neutralized; then go after their masters in Tehran. Enough appeasement. Do it now or suffer the consequences down the road. These terrorists have one goal in mind; annihilate Israel.

  • May 7, 2018 @ 21:18 at 21:18

    Oh dear. Guess the Jews are not chosen people after all. And maybe this is God’s way of bulldozing the Jews out of Israel. And liberating the promised land back to the tribes of Israel. And Israel as a people of all kinds. So to conclude the matter. Joseph has the birthright and the Abrahamic blessings. Not Judah. Judah I suppose shares a similar fate to Esau.

      Typical anti-jewish wishfull thinking! “Dreams are your reality, the only thing you see…” as the song goes. Idiot! If Hizballah begins to shoot rockets, IDF will destroy all the south of Lebanon and turn it into a desert. The rat hiding in a bunker is just making rhetorical declarations with no real intentions. Hizballah is almost destroyed by 8 years war in Syria. Iran has all hands tied in Yemen and elsewhere. God will protect Israel, as he has done since 1948. Go fuck yourself now!

      • May 7, 2018 @ 21:58 at 21:58

        Well said. Amen!
        For the life in me I can’t understand why do haters of Israel and Jews visit this site. Is this where they get their news and analysis? Benefitting from an Israeli site to sow hatred!

        Along with Israels more than capable military … Next war with hezbollah will be done american style…bombed into oblivion. Th intell is in…the public relations with america and russia are on…and no one can do a thing when israel retaliates its way instead of how the world has been telling it to. Israel does not give a cr ap for what the rest of the world thinks anymore. It has america and russias blessing there ..b and both will help Israel. Getting rid of iran from syria will make russia a lot happier and safer without the knives at the back. Not enough room for both to rape Syrian people again .. but Israel is russia reason. Hezbollah moving into politics next door is just more reason for preemptive strikes to come. Not like me or any one here is going to live next door to some idiot saying how they going to kill you every day. 🙂 Israel is no different.

      In your dreams. there’s a surprise in store even a genius like you didn’t consider.

  • May 7, 2018 @ 21:27 at 21:27

    Honestly my Israeli friends
    It’s time to put nASSrallah s head on a pike at the North Israeli border…stop playing games

    This will make for compelling television viewing in the U.S. That’s about it.

    It is a matter of survival and the time to act is now, any delay will complicate this issue for the worse. Think of the 6-day war. This one should be tougher, stronger, and more deadly. Iran will go after you sooner or later, giving Iran the time needed is a deadly mistake.

  • May 7, 2018 @ 22:31 at 22:31

    Iranian Shiite empire is born from Afghanistan Iran iraq lebanon Yemen. It’s too late to stop it.

    • May 7, 2018 @ 22:41 at 22:41

      LOL! Fascist Iran is on a Suicide Mission to its annihilation.

      Soon Fascist Iran will SURRENDER, UNCONDITIONALLY to the US and Israel with the ayatoolas hanging from their scrawny necks like Haman and his sons.

      • Jun 10, 2018 @ 3:38 at 3:38

        I can see the ayatollahs ending up like Mosolini…hanged by the nuts. Most Iranians actually liked Israel and have no quarrel with jews. The persians have more quarrel with the arab populace that destroyed their culture and present day. I think the right reason will see the revolt they want. Go back before 79 and see how well Iranians adapted to european ways. They will again.

  • May 7, 2018 @ 23:01 at 23:01

    fuck the muslims!

  • May 8, 2018 @ 1:33 at 1:33

    Now it is official. All of Lebanon, and all of the assets of Lebanon are legitimate targets in the next war.

    Lebanon, controlled by Hezbollah/Iran is nothing more than an Iranian proxy and should be leveled as such.

    If I was a Lebanese reading this right now? Get the heck out while you can.

  • May 8, 2018 @ 3:34 at 3:34

    Muslum hate of JewLand is the MobiDick………………..let it go Madjnooooon, let it go…….it will take you down.

    G*d bless Ysrael, now tomorrow and 4ever

    Lebanon is another example of the Islamic conquest. Europe and the world abandoned Lebanon to Hezbollah. This demonstrates to terror groups that the West will cave, cooperate and eventually fall to Islamists. There is no will to fight. All efforts end up in aquiescing to the leftist mania for holding hands and kissing ass. The only hope for stopping the conquest is Israel and Obama.

      Lol — meant Trump.

    ISRAEL, THE PRETRIBULATION RAPTURE AND DANIEL’S 70TH WEEK: The amount of potential prophetical fulfillment packed into a single week is absolutely staggering. In exactly 7 days from today, regathered Israel will celebrated 70 years of being back in the land. I can just picture the prophets Daniel and Jeremiah looking down and high-fiving each other in anticipation. President Trump, the first United States president to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the only president to move the US Embassy there, is fully expected to announce later today that the US is pulling out of Obama’s phony Iranian Nuclear Treaty. As if all that was not enough, Hamas in Gaza is promising an all-out riot on the border on May 14th protesting the US Embassy move to Jerusalem. Here at NTEB, we have been urging believers to take a very long, hard look at the time surrounding May 14th as Israel turns 70, and events are coming together exactly as we have been saying they would. The only question is will the Lord finally ‘throw the switch’ and launch Flight #777 on Tttus213 Airlines so Daniel’s 70th Week can start? Tick, tock…let’s watch and see what happens. http://www.nowtheendbegins.com/middle-east-is-bracing-itself-for-a-week-packed-full-with-milestone-events-of-biblical-and-prophetic-proportions/
