IDF Home Command Chief in pessimistic forecast for 2019

Maj. Gen. Tamir Yaday, chief of the IDF’s Home Front Command, warned Wednesday that the threats facing Israel in 2019 will be different, more complex and more challenging. Speaking at a conference in Ashkelon for briefing newly-elected mayors and heads of local councils, Gen. Yaday stressed that the Middle East is organized in a different way from the past. War fronts could open both in the north and the south because attempts at coordination are taking place. In the wars to come, he warned, “We won’t be fighting in the North and Gaza while they drink coffee in Tel Aviv.”

    As Israelis, let us benefit from the words of the great anti semite Henry Ford, he said if you think you can or you think you cant, you are right.So lets be a bit more positive, we are not just going to sit in our shelters and be bombed,we are going on the attack too, so lets hear a bit of information of what we are going to do to the enemy.
    Lets remember we have a G-D given right to be here.its our homeland, we will fight for it,and keep it.
    Our enemy can form a line and queue up for his 72 yr old virgin in his paradise.

    Lebanon is a threat with hezbollah now better equipped and trained than ever before. However so long as we do not attacked them its highly unlikely that they would ever invade us.

    So yes our freedom of action now brings with it consequences but that is healthy and should keep us out of needless actions.

    But where is the threat in the South? Gaza is of little consequence, they are all locked up nicely and we control the water, food and power.

    We just need to deny them that for a few weeks to solve that little problem. Stay and die or leave.

    Move them into the Sinia and get the Gulf to pay for the land.

      “Move them into the Sinai …” just gives them a larger base of operations that is no longer “locked up”.
