Former Defense Minister Ya’alon–‘If there is a war, the Jewish state will annihilate Lebanon’s infrastructure and completely destroy the entire country’


Israel National News

Former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon on Sunday told a Saudi Arabian news website that the decisions made in Lebanon are not made by Hezbollah Chief Hassan Nasrallah but by Iranian Prime Minister Ali Khamenei.

According to an article published about Ya’alon by London’s Arabic daily Elaph, Ya’alon’s term as Defense Minister ended because of the “submarine scandal” in which Israel bought submarines from Germany.

“There’s no such country as Lebanon,” Ya’alon said. “All of the decisions are made by Iran, not by Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri or by Hezbollah Chief Hassan Nasrallah.”

“If Khamenei wants a war, then Lebanon will go go war, and every Lebanese citizen will suffer from the war, because we will destroy all of their infrastructure.”

Regarding the fact that Iran is building weapons factories in Lebanon, Ya’alon said, “I regret that this made it to the news before the factories were destroyed.”

With regards to Syria’s civil war and its spillover into Israel, he said, “Israel has red lines.” He also denied that Israel had helped Jabhat al-Nusra or any other jihadist groups.

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) said at the end of June, “I want to caution the Syrian regime, which encourages Hezbollah and the Iranians to act against Israel. They cannot continue to supply Hezbollah with weapons. We will not hesitate to act if we need to.”

Israel’s relations with the Gulf States, Ya’alon emphasized are “based on mutual interests, and exposing one partnership or another is a decision which has to be made by the countries involved.”

He also said that there are “no sustainable options for an agreement with the Palestinians at this stage, but we can work together on the economy and security situation while strengthening the siege on Hamas.”

“Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is avoiding responsibility,” Ya’alon explained. “He’s afraid to take responsibility. He’s disappointed both the Saudis and Egyptians.”

Last week, senior Hezbollah official Hashem Safieddine promised that Hezbollah would “surprise Israel” in any future conflict, and said that Israel’s assessment of Hezbollah’s weaponry is highly inaccurate, despite their prevalent reports on the Lebanese organization’s arsenal.

In response, Liberman said, “We take everything seriously. We are certainly aware of the reports and we will do what needs to be done. This is a significant phenomenon and we cannot ignore it. Precise weapons such as these missiles are a challenge. Compared to past wars they will hit deep inside Israeli territory.”

    “There is no such thing as a Palestinian people.”

    These folks are delusional but force everyone else to pay for it. Israel has been becoming even more actively warlike over the past while, just LOOKING for fresh blood to drink en masse.

    This rabid creature, Ya’alon, wants to feed Likkud and the people their fill. But Hezbollah, the unspoken heroes of Syria, might have something to say about that. And of course, as usual, the creature threatens the innocent, not the warrior.

    Typical.

    The Jews hate Lebanon for many reasons, but here are the 2 biggest ones;

    1. It is the place where Jesus performed his first miracle in the village of Qana where at a wedding he turned water into wine.

    2. The Lebanese people are the most friendly, family-oriented, hospitable people you can meet. You don’t have to be a genius to know that this ‘breaks the mold’ of the Israeli-construct of “all Arabs are terrorists”.

    Yaalon is a purifying sack of excrement, A bully boy who, as one of the spawn of satan, spews endless lies and deceit. I can only assume his family , if he has one, is as dysfunctional as he is. His bleatings, like a neutered ram are not worth hearing. But he can count on one thing, when the end comes for Israel, he will be there to enjoy a brief new suntan.

    “If Khamenei wants a war, then Lebanon will go go war, and every Lebanese citizen will suffer from the war, because we will destroy all of their infrastructure.”

    strong words indeed but after their last little escapade in summer of 2014 against mainly civilians which REALLY tarnished the reputation of “the most moral only democracy” in the region, it revealed to the world the real face of what is really just a polished turd shored up by the billions on US dollars.

    Now Trump is president and i know he blows hot and cold on certain issues does anybody believe they have the ability to wage a war and i mean a “proper war” against Lebanon?
    They have somebody who can shoot back and there is no 100% controlled “yes” man like Obama in the white house who is going to rubber stamp munition supplies – any body remember they were running out of supplies against Gaza and hamas?

    No its just bluster, after all IS and co are doing the fighting for them in Syria they cannot chance another P.R disaster – all Nasrallah has to do is fire a few missiles near Israels airports and the tourists will evaporate leaving them crying about lost shekels …. just like the last time.


    look at that book in the middle.
