Israel’s Prime Minister convenes urgent Security forum, this past Friday
DEBKAfile Special report August 7, 2009, 2:36 PM (GMT+02:00)
According to the official statement, prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu and his security cabinet of six were briefed on Middle East developments at a special session Friday, Aug. 7. DEBKAfile’s military sources report that an unusually large number of officials were brought together, indicating that an out-of-the-ordinary security development was afoot. They included the chief of staff, Lt. Gen. Gaby Ashkenazi, military intelligence chief Brig. Amos Yadlin, Mossad director Meir Dagan, Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin, OC Southern Command Brig. Yoav Galant and several more senior officers.
Other reports, one of which was broadcast yesterday by Israel Radio, within the past 24-hours indicated that the specific cause for this extraordinary security cabinet meeting involved developments in southern Lebanon. According to those reports…
“Lebanon’s military commander reportedly is reviewing troops in the south of the country, near Israel, and warning them of a potential conflict with Israel.”
Additionally, Hezbollah has been massively rearmed by Iran and Syria with as many as 40,000 missiles. Some of those missiles are newly developed by Iran and have ranges far exceeding the missiles used in the war fought three summers ago.
It’s interesting how the Middle East manages to stay in the news. I’m not sure why Lebanon would be warning their troops of a potential conflict with Israel, unless Iran and/or Syria were planning on doing something that might provoke Israel.
Unless you’ve been sleeping for the past few years, it is common knowledge that the president of Iran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad cannot stand Israel. No, no, wait. That’s too meek. He actually HATES Israel with a passion and will not rest until every last Jew is out of the Middle East.
With this type of rhetoric, it is no wonder that tempers flare and everyone is on high alert. Then again, Abbas’ group has got their fingers on the trigger apparently. They stated yesterday,
The status of Jerusalem as the future capital of a Palestinian state is a red line that no Palestinian leader is permitted to cross, President Mahmoud Abbas’ ruling Fatah faction declared in the West Bank on Saturday.
Fatah, which rules the West Bank but was ousted from power in Gaza by the Islamist Hamas movement, also ruled out any interim agreements with Israel.
“Fatah will continue to sacrifice victims until Jerusalem will be returned [to the Palestinians], clean of settlements and settlers,” the paper states.
So time marches onward, as rhetoric heats up!
