MKs Haneen Zoabi and Basel Ghattas were suspended for four months, and MK Jamal Zahalka was suspended for two months. 'Miserable, anti-democratic and unethical decision,' Joint Arab List says.21:54 08.02.16 | 0 comments
If the hands that feed Hezbolla are cut off, Hezbolla as a militia will very quickly be relegated to the back-pages of Middle-Eastern history. A transient transfer of weaponry from a dying Assad regime, will be but transient. The National Lebanese government needs to be in total control of its own nation, and without continued patronage to Hezbolla from Iran and from Syria, their reign of terror within Lebanon will end. And although it is clear that most Lebanese are not keen of making peace with Israel, most also dread the possibility that Hezbolla will drag them again into conflict with us. Israel needs to send a polite but strong and clear message to the Lebanese and to Hezbolla that if they dare attack Israel, Israel will respond to her defense aggressively. There will be rock behind which Hezbolla leaders will be able to hide from, and for those survivors within Hezbolla, their fate will be at best similar to what Israel did to Arafat and the PLO during first Israeli-Lebanese war. By the way, this earlier conflict also started by PLO using Lebanese soil to aggressively attack and terrorize Israeli northern communities. Let's hope that history will not be repeated here.
