Defeating Hezbollah Requires Liberating Lebanon and Syria

Hezbollah is not only present throughout Lebanon but has forces located in over 100 locations in all parts of Ba’ath-controlled Syria. Hezbollah’s chemical weapons and terrorist projectile programs are intended to be grown into posing an existential threat against Israel. Israel would be foolish to wait with eradicating Hezbollah until Hezbollah turns into a full-fledged existential threat. This would be the equivalent of attacking Iran’s nuclear weapons program only after Iran has developed nuclear weapons.

Israel has not fought a war with Hezbollah since 2006 and Hezbollah has since then developed the capability to inflict significant strategic damage on Israel. In a recent training exercise by the Israeli Home Front Command was the assumption that with 2 000 terrorist projectiles being launched daily against Israeli civilian targets, Israel would face overcrowded hospitals. Although the home front command trained for Hezbollah chemical weapons attacks along the border with Lebanon did the training exercise not take into account the thousands of wounded flooding hospitals who can be expected from Hezbollah terrorist projectiles with chemical warheads, nor did it take into account that Hezbollah is likely to launch far more than 2 000 terrorist projectiles a day. Israel clearly does not want to scare its civilian population but will in due time have no choice but to explain the full extent of the Hezbollah Jihadist threat against Israeli civilians.

Israel has no choice but to liberate both Lebanon and Syria in order to root out the Jihadist Hezbollah terrorist organization which both countries extensively sponsor. The Lebanese and Syrian militaries and intelligence services are fully integrated with Hezbollah. Israel has no choice but to liberate both countries from the Khomeinist and Ba’athist forces of totalitarianism. Iran has made clear that Hezbollah will try to destroy Israel after Israel destroys the Iranian nuclear weapons program, something which can be expected in 2023.

An establishment of an Aramean Christian state is long overdue and Israel as part of its alliance with the Aramean movement is fully committed to the liberation of Aram which will become officially bilingual in Aramaic and Arabic. Israel would annex the Median Jewish (Alawtie and Druze) regions of Syria and Lebanon whose population have already reassumed Jewish identity as the information that Median Jews are indeed Jewish have spread rapidly mouth to mouth in the past decade. 

Once having rooted out Hezbollah, Israel would hand over most of Syria and the remainder of Lebanon to the SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) of the AANES (Autonomous Administration of North and East Syria). All border changes would take place according to international law through an international agreement between Jerusalem and the new governments in Beirut and Damascus. A Hezbollah Jihadist insurgency would likely continue in former parts of Lebanon annexed by the new Syrian government as led by the feminist PYD (Democratic Union Party) but the SDF is experienced in fighting Jihadist insurgents.

Israel would attain peace on the northern front and southern Lebanon would become part of the new Syria. Both Aram and the new Syria would no doubt become close allies of Israel. Israel has no choice but to wage a war for peace before the Hezbollah strategic threat develops into an existential threat against the world’s only Jewish state.
