Ex israeli defense minister: If Khamenei wants war, then Lebanon will go to war

Yaalon, Israel DMFormer Israeli  defense minister Moshe Ya’alon told  a London based Saudi news website on  Sunday that the decisions in Lebanon are made by the Iranian supreme leader, Ali Khameini, and not by Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah or the Lebanese president   stressing that every Lebanese will suffer from the next war “because all infrastructure will be destroyed ”  , Israeli media reported on Monday

In the interview on the London-based “Elaph,” Ya’alon pointed to Iran as governing the actions of Hezbollah, its proxy group in Lebanon, and the possible implications for Israel.

“The decisions are made by Iran and not by the Lebanese  president or Nasrallah,” Ya’alon said. “If Khamenei wants war, then Lebanon will go to war, and every Lebanese [person] will suffer from the next war because all infrastructure will be destroyed.”

Regarding  reports of weapons manufacturers in Lebanon that were allegedly built by Iran, the former minister said, “I am sorry that the matter arose in the media before their destruction.”

      Yes I agree! If you want to cut Hezbollah then why not start with the head of the Snake. But the Syrian Army used to use Hezbollah then and the last Decade it’s been mostly Iran. But Israel need to bomb Iran Missiles sites if they dare. Again if Hezbollah is cut-off from Iran then no one else is willing to help and be at least heavy handed like Iran would.

      Similarly the Iranians use Lebanese, Afghans, Iraqi, Yemen, to fight their battles for them and never engage openly and directly, opting to use the sneaky cover of the Arab shiities. Unless Israel attacks Iran this will never end. Iran is smart enough to let Lebanon take the fall.

I still maintain that Israel is scared of Iran .I am surprised to note your claim

            Iran is not “working hard at becoming the regional superpower”. Iran simply is the superpower. All the Middle Eastern countries except for Iran were created by the Westerners in the 20th century and judging by the events that are currently taking place, all of them will not survive their own 100-year anniversary.

Yet, they attacked surrounding Arab countries to steal/occupy more lands in 1967 and then lied they were attacked. Yet, they invaded and occupied the south of Lebanon for twenty years. Yes, it’s not there to conquer.

        • Rascal

          I don’t think I would use the word scared or incapable. Israel is fully capable to turn Iran into a sheet of glass or destroy any Hezb/Iran attempting to push of the Golan boarder. Israel is not attacking Iran, it is the other way around. Iran is on a historical push to create some magical empire from Iran to the Mediterranean sea in their vain attempt a Khomeneis Islamic revolution.Maybe Iran should fvck off and stop arming militants and destabilizing governments all across the middle east.

          • Omega

            – If Israel is capable of such feat, why doesn’t it do it? Simply put and you may not know this or may refuse to acknowledge it, Israel cannot. It wants the US to do it for them (like Iraq).

            – How, exactly, is Iran attacking Israel? Do tell.

            – How is Iran on a quest to create some magical empire when it was there for thousands of years? You’re confused with the Hebrews’ magical snapshot of imagined history where their empire stretches from the Euphrates to the Nile.

          • Rascal

            The best Iran can hope for is local influence. Due to the highly sectarian nature of Iran’s leaders and its bloody history since the Shiite Islamic Revolution, coupled with relying almost exclusively on Shiite proxy armies, they simply do not have the military or economy to project empire status power. In short Iran can not hide behind Russia for long and they are the only reason that Iran is still allowed in Syria killing Sunni populations. Left with full power Iran’s mullahs would preform mass executions against their colonial populations, much like they did in Iran with mass murder of all opposition. Is this what you desire?
            Personally, I feel the shiite brand of muslim is more liberal than the sunni majority as individuals, but Iran’s 12’er leaders are quite insane when looked at through rational eyes. Really, have you ever listen to the crap they spew? And really, any government that rules with dictatorial Islamic sectarian ideals is a recipe for failure, and a human rights disaster that I would wish on my worst enemy. What would be wrong with a properly elected democratic government that offers freedom and hope for the people instead of never-ending resistance and war/terrorism that Hezbullah and Iran produce.

          • Ilami-Gilaki

            Where did you get all that?

      • MekensehParty

        Exactly my point, it won’t end until Israel attacks Iran. So he must stop threatening the little minions and go get the head of the snake. That is if he can, and if not, really shush barking on minions.

        • Rascal

          Iran needs to make a worthy and open assault against Israel to get this party started. Otherwise the status Quo will prevail and Israel will simply continue quietly whacking Iran in Syria when Hezb/Iran get too close. Make no mistake, Iran has come along way to attack distant Israel and they are sucking Russian tit to get that close. Iran is clearly the aggressor here as Israeli troops are not trying to mass on Iran’s boarder. This in itself should be declared an act of war.
          Iran does not constantly chant “Marg bar Israel” everyday for no reason, they are a distinct threat that is inching closer. At some point Israel will have to drive this point home to Iran that they really need to fvck off.

          • Omega

            Iran will never make such assault. They know that the Anglo-American-Israelis will always provoke them to get a response that will justify a military intervention. The West tried in 1988 with Flight 655 and Iran remained put.

            The Muslim Brotherhood’s leadership is the British ruling class’ extension in the Middle East.

Wahhabis (Islamic Jihad) have always been supported by Britain. Saddam was supported by the Anglo-Americans. Al-Baghdadi who was mysteriously released from prison in 2004 was/is also Muslim Brotherhood. Hamas’ creation was supported by Israel to thwart the PLO.

            Lebanese language is Arabic.
            Phoenicia was the name the Greek gave the Coast; from Latakia to Akr (Syria to Palestine).
            They were pagans till Maronites fled Damascus in 400 AD, from Nestoriens and Jacobites persecution up to the heights of a mountain in Syria, named Mount Lebanon.
            Syrian Lebanese and Palestinians spoke Phoenician!!

    Ya’alon should elaborate on ISIS apologizing to Israel for a clash with the IDF in the Golan Heights before anything else.

    Once he’s done, he should acknowledge that Iran is not a threat to Israel or the West’s security but to their quest of total hegemony in the region.
