Israel Breathes its Last–MES EP. 164
Perhaps, during the years of its occupation of Arab lands in Palestine and elsewhere, “Israel” was not waiting to pass through a situation similar to what it is going through these days, in terms of weakness, humiliation, hesitation, and fear for the future and fate.
It is true that it, like any occupier or aggressor, always puts within its calculations, under pressure and with the aim of absorbing a specific situation, the possibility of relinquishing some gains or accepting an inappropriate settlement for it.
However, for “Israel” today to reach a situation where it has begun to see the possibility of its demise or its defeat from the region, as per the words of its own leaders, is greater than the possibility of its persistence in its occupation, this is what it was not waiting for or thinking about.
To discuss this issue with us from Beirut is Hasan Hijazi, editor and expert on Zionist affairs.
Israeli media are talking about the upcoming war with the Lebanese resistance and are afraid of Hezbollah’s arsenal of missiles and their huge number. Fear is justified, as Hezbollah’s arsenal of missiles and their sheer number make them a deadly tool against the Israeli enemy.
It is estimated that on the eve of the 2006 War, Hezbollah had 15,000 rockets and fired about 4,000 rockets toward the occupation. In contrast, the organization today has more than 100,000 missiles, according to Israeli security officials.
