Olmert-Peretz axis came up with this ingenious plan to copy Nasrallah’s tactics. Immediately after the Knesset speech, a huge bomb was thrown on south Beirut as mentioned before (in the same fashion as the bombing of the Israeli gunship following Nasrallah’s speech). The Israeli government is desperate – desperate to justify, desperate to convince, desperate to deceive. The speech was merely a propaganda campaign, and it came at a time when Israel seems to be on the verge of collapse in its campaign of aggression against the Lebanese people. What is Israel bombing in south Beirut? There is nothing left there. Not even HezbAllah is operating from there.
And so Haifa has been hit again. And it will be hit again and again and again, and not just Haifa. If Israel thinks it will break HezbAllah, it should think twice (it might not have a third opportunity to do so). It is making tragic misreadings and miscalculations of the regional scene. Today Syria might be out of Lebanon, and Iran might not have a border with HezbAllah, but it goes beyond physical touch. It goes way beyond that. It seems Olmert’s government has a lot to learn. That is, if it survives this whole “crisis” as some people mildly put it.
Ground battles are being fought in the South right as we speak. Israeli forces have attempted to invade Lebanese territory in many areas but have been pushed back by HezbAllah fighters.
Many Israelis were boasting that HezbAllah cannot hit them at night, as that would give away their position. How many times do we have to prove you wrong? Never underestimate your enemy. Never.
Early night for me. I need to catch some sleep.
