Hassan Nasrallah miscalculated in 2006 and he is miscalculating again and threatening war over the Karish gas field. Nasrallah and his Iranian sponsors are projecting their own misconceptions upon Israel and therefore assume that Israel is afraid of war with the Hezbollah-led Iranian axis. It is true that the Axis will be able to inflict far more damage on Israel than the Yom Kippur War and with the use of chemical weapons may the Israeli casualty rate number in the tens of thousands. Iran and Hezbollah of course are absolutely convinced that they will be able to destroy Israel. However, while this is a patently false belief, it is certainly true that Israel has much to fear from war with the Axis. Yet, this ignores that Israel has much to win from a war, including annexing Median Jewish (Alawite and Druze) regions of Lebanon and Syria and establishing an indigenous Aramean state in parts of Lebanon while affecting regime change in Syria with the PYD (Democratic Union Party) becoming the new government in Damascus. This means peace in the north with both Syria and Aram. In fact, Israel is extremely eager for this war since this will establish perpetual peace, remove a growing threat against the Jewish state while liberating 4 million Median Jews and bring them under Israeli sovereignty. What is clear is that Nasrallah as usual is delusional and drunk on Mahdism.
