If Israel ever needed a wartime Prime Minister it is now. Instead, Israel is lead by a self serving political hack.
Tragically 40 years after the six day war - Israel is again threatened by the Islamic world. And certainly SYRIA COULD ATTACK ISRAEL WITH IRAQ WMD
Who Is Behind Fath Al-Islam?
By H. Varulkar*
On May 20, 2007, militants from the Fath Al-Islam organization attacked Lebanese Army outposts at the Nahr Al-Bared refugee camp in northern Lebanon. Since then, the violence has spread into other areas, including the city of Tripoli, and dozens of Lebanese soldiers, civilians, and Fath Al-Islam militants have been killed.(1)
The Lebanese government and the March 14 forces are accusing Syria of training and arming the Fath Al-Islam militants, and of bringing them into Lebanon. They are claiming that Syria ordered the organization to launch a large-scale attack on the Lebanese army at this point in time so as to prevent the U.N. Security Council from approving the establishment of an international tribunal for the Al-Hariri assassination.
Furthermore, the March 14 Forces link Fath Al-Islam's attack on the Lebanese army to the threats made recently by Syrian President Bashar Assad, which were reported by numerous media outlets. According to the reports, Assad threatened, in a conversation with U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon, to set fire to the region "from the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean"; another time, he threatened that civil war would break out in Lebanon if the tribunal was approved.(2)
The Lebanese opposition, headed by Hizbullah, accused the Lebanese government, primarily the Sunni Al-Mustaqbal faction led by Sa'd Al-Hariri, of being behind Fath Al-Islam and of funding it.
March 14 Forces: Syria Sent Fath Al-Islam into Lebanon Because of the International Tribunal
With the first reports of Fath Al-Islam's emergence, in November 2006, the March 14 Forces claimed that the Fath Al-Islam militants had been sent into Lebanon by Syria to carry out attacks and to assassinate senior Lebanese officials.
In a communiqué, the March 14 Forces stated that "the Lebanese army, the internal forces, and the citizens in Tripoli and the north have, since [May 20, 2007,] been subjected to an attack that is the realization of the threats made by the head of the Syrian regime – to set Lebanon on fire if the international tribunal was approved."(3)
In a May 21, 2007 editorial, the Lebanese daily Al-Mustaqbal wrote that the clashes between the Lebanese army and Fath Al-Islam were the result of orders by Syrian President Bashar Assad: "There is no doubt that the attack by the Fath Al-Islam terror gang on the [Lebanese] army and security forces is connected to the madness [that gripped] the Syrian regime and its subordinates [in Lebanon] with the approach of the date of the approval of the international tribunal in the Security Council under Chapter 7 [of the U.N. Charter]..." Read it all
