It certainly does not come as a surprise. First we were told Israel’s
IOF only wanted to clear a “security zone” of 1.2 kilometers to
prevent Hezbollah from rocketing northern Israel. Now Deputy IOF Chief of Staff
Maj.-Gen. Moshe Kaplinsky tells us Israel will not only push to the Litani River,
but “might also try to send troops north of the Litani,” according
to the neocon-infested Jabotinsky Post, otherwise known as the Jerusalem
Post. “IAF fighter jets dropped tens of thousands of leaflets over
villages north of the river on Tuesday calling on the residents to flee further
north in anticipation of IDF operations in the area.” In other words,
villages north of the Litani will be carpet bombed and residents ethnically
cleansed as well.
The IOF “is still nearly 20 miles from the Litani and even after reaching
the river there will still be concentrations of Hezbollah units in and around
the Palestinian refugee camps of Tyre. Here Israel will encircle the city, lay
siege to it, instead of a frontal assault and use artillery and air attacks
to eliminate any enemy rocket fire,” reports Willard
Payne for News Blaze, quoting the pro-Likudite DEBKAfile.
Translation: in standard Zionist fashion, the IOF will engage in a medieval
siege of the ancient Phoenician city with a history going back to 2700 BC, according
to the Ionian traveler and storyteller Herodotus. Its 117,100 inhabitants will
be ethnically cleansed and those who remain will be exterminated, a now well
established Israeli modus operandi.
DEBKAfile predicts: “Even if one of the three [IOF] forces reaches the
Litani, Hizballah concentrations will remain behind, the largest around the
Mediterranean town of Tyre and its satellite Palestinian refugee camps. It is
hard to imagine Israeli forces going in for a large-scale clean-out of this
densely population enclave. Israeli commanders will prefer encirclement and
siege. A decision will also have to be taken about the small town of Tebnine
and the entire Jebel Amel mountain region of central Lebanon. Here too, Israeli
tacticians may settle for artillery and aerial control over Hizballah’s
ability to fire rockets from this stronghold.”
Note the connections here: Tyre will be attacked because it is supposedly rife
with Hezbollah; the Palestinians, forced into squalid refugee camps due to earlier
Israeli ethnic cleansing campaigns (including wanton mass murder, rape, theft,
torture), are little more than Hezbollah satellites; the predictable excuse
for all this impending murder and ethnic cleansing once again is attributed
to Hezbollah rockets, as the ongoing brutality in Gaza and the West Bank are
routinely attributed to Palestinian suicide bombing and more recently to ineffectual
and primitive home-made Qassam rockets.
As DEBKAfile is essentially a Zionist propaganda tool (although a darling of
the corporate media, having won the Forbes Best of The Web award), it is on
track with the Zionist-neocon plan to decimate the Arab and Muslim world, as
long planned. “It is no coincidence that yesterday Iran Foreign Minister
Manouchehr Mottaki made quick visits to both Damascus and Beirut, which were
most likely meant to give the word from Tehran that it is time for Hezbollah
to use the rest of its rockets, of all ranges, and that Damascus should be ready
to enter the war. After the visit Syria President Bashar Assad ordered Syria’s
military to be on its highest alert,” News Blaze continues. In other words,
we are expected to believe that Syria not only takes its marching orders from
Tehran, but Assad and his tiny and ill-trained military are delusional with
suicidal fever dreams. “The enormous publicity resulting from such a move
will send spiritual shockwaves throughout the entire Islamic world setting the
stage for Iran’s glorious-imperial entry as its symbolic support for Palestinian
and Lebanese people.”
In fact, both Syria and Iran understand well the Israelis and their neocon
partners intend to invade—or rather shock and awe—their countries
in turn and they are scrambling to defend themselves, as should be expected.
Of course, if two warring parties were going at it over our border here in the
United States, chances are pretty damn good we’d declare a high alert,
especially if one of the warring parties had not only made repeated threats
against our country but also buzzed Camp David with a fighter jet (as Israel
buzzed Assad at his retreat on June 28).
But never mind. Israel is not only the master of double standards but
also relies on the corporate media spin machine, sworn to secrecy, or at least
omission, and will never mention Israel’s long and sordid history of warmongering,
ethnic cleansing (beginning with 800,000 Palestinians), false flag terrorism,
and religiously sanctioned kleptomania, the latter not only including land but
water as well.
“The Litani, located entirely within Lebanon, derives its hydro-political
importance from the fact that it runs within easy tunneling distance to the
present Israeli-Lebanese border,” notes the MEDEA
It runs actually less than 10 kilometers from the Israeli controlled upper
reaches of the Jordan. Israel had hoped to connect the Litani with the Jordan,
thus enabling it to pump those waters into Israel proper. The plan to seize
the Litani has a long history. It had been articulated for the first time
in the 1920s by one of the Zionist organizations but the objective became
more serious following the 1967 war, as Israel wanted more water than had
been garnered from the war. The timing for the capture of the Litani in 1978
was logical: if South Lebanon were secured at the time, the waters of the
Litani would be available for Israeli use by some point in the mid-1980s,
when Israel anticipated that the waters captured in the 1967 war would be
fully used up and more water needed. However, as things stand now, the coveted
waters of the Litani remain undeveloped for Lebanon and in limbo for Israel.
However, the Israelis banished this troublesome limbo, thanks to Hezbollah
and its ancient technology of Katyusha rockets, first developed in the late
If there is a constant in the current situation, it is that we can expect Israel
to steal both land and natural resources, especially water, from its neighbors—and
invent absurd excuses (and lies) to do so, and thus kill thousands of Arabs.
However, this time around, Hezbollah presents formidable resistance to this
brazen homicide and thievery. Israel may employ its U.S. provided weaponry to
push beyond the Litani, and may even besiege Tyre, reducing it to ruin. But
by no means, this time around, will they be allowed to keep the territory they
have repeatedly attempted to ethnically cleanse and steal.
Indeed, Hezbollah will resist and nothing short of turning southern (and apparently
parts of northern) Lebanon into a Stalingradesque wasteland will slow down the
tenacious and well-trained resistance group, now arguably one of the more effective
in the world.
Of course, it should be remembered, the people of Stalingrad, although decimated,
eventually won out against the Nazis, as Hezbollah will eventually win out against
Israel’s once vaunted IOF.
