Oh! dear, we’re looking at an Palestinian/Lebanese escalation and a war on two fronts for Israel… escalation means more deaths

Hizb-Allah’s leader Sayyed Nazrallah has opened a threat dialogue towards Israel regarding Gaza, now Nasrallah is no friend of Hamas, but if he is prepared to open a second front to relive the pressure on Gaza, then Israel will have major problems.


There is obviously chatter on the wires about this otherwise the Israeli chief of staff would not have open up about preparing for multi front wars. I’ve lost the original link, I believe it was Benny Ganz who said it to the Times of Israel but I can’t find it today.

Hamas is using similar tactics to Hizb-Allah in the Second Lebanese War and the IDF took a pasting. Dispite the US and British Armies messes in Afghanistan and Iraq regarding COIN. The IDF have not learnt any lessons.

All we need now is ISIS to wade in and Israel will be confronted with is worst aggression in decades. Would it survive this one? Yes but the bloodshed would set the Middle East peace process back a lot and this would be a damn sight worse than the First Lebanese war’s impact on the World’s view of Israel.
