Israeli Minister – “Lebanon Should Be Sent Back To Middle Ages”

“Is Israel planning another war against Lebanon?” (S. Lendman)

Last year, Press TV cited the Beirut-based al-Akhbar broadsheet, saying unnamed US officials warned about Israeli plans for war on Lebanon, a decade after its last aggression – embarrassed by Hezbollah fighters at the time, perhaps seeking an excuse for revenge.

On March 11, Haaretz interviewed extremist Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett (pic above). Suggesting another possible war on Lebanon, he said its “institutions…infrastructure, airport, power stations, traffic junctions, Lebanese Army bases – they should all be legitimate targets. (Lebanon should be) sen(t) back to the Middle Ages.”

Bennett is part of Israel’s lunatic fringe. The IDF considers civilians and nonmilitary related sites legitimate targets when waging war, international law systematically breached.

Collective punishment is official policy. Israel’s Dahiya doctrine reflects it, named after the Beirut suburb the IDF destroyed in 2006.

In 2008, then IDF Northern Commander, its current chief of staff, Gadi Eisenkot explained:

“What happened in the Dahiya quarter of Beirut in 2006 will happen in every village from which Israel is fired on.” 

“We will apply disproportionate force at the heart of the enemy’s weak spot (civilians) and cause great damage and destruction.” 

“From our standpoint, these are not civilian villages (towns or cities). They are military bases. This is not a recommendation. This is a plan. And it has been approved.”

The same applies to Gaza. Three Israeli wars of aggression since December 2008 caused mass destruction and slaughter, civilians harmed most.

Retired General Giora Eiland believes Israel’s war strategy should destroy “the national infrastructure and (inflict) intense suffering among the population.”

Dahiya strategy and tactics reflect core Israeli war policy – to inflict maximum deaths, injuries, destruction, displacement and human suffering as possible – core international humanitarian law breaches.

Hezbollah has thousands of rockets able to strike Israeli cities and other sensitive sites. Its leader Hassan Nasrallah warned “there will be no red lines” if Lebanon is attacked.

Another war could cause a bloodbath in both countries, inflicting heavy casualties, destruction, and greater regional destabilization than already.

Hezbollah won’t launch it. Preparations have been ongoing for a decade to respond in case Israel wages more aggression.

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
