That was inevitable

The danger of going wobbly stems, of course, from the encouragement it offers terrorists, and from the incentive it offers them to escalate their Chutzpah.

A sad example has just been set with Israel’s non-response to Wazzani diversion. On October 23, 2002, WorldNetDaily reported:

A major potential military clash is building between Israel and Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, controlled by the terrorist organization, which gets its support from Syria and Iran. The latest conflict is over water rights.

Nasrallah said the fact that Israel has not yet attacked the Wazzani water pumps is because of the Jewish state's fear of the "Islamic resistance's retaliation."

Nasrallah said that the suicide attack in Israel last Monday "was a clear statement that this nation will continue its resistance."

Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah is a leader of the terrorist group Hezbollah; he attended the recent Francophone gathering in Lebanon, and, according to CNN “took a front-row seat alongside Lebanese religious leaders”.
