Waiting for the other shoe to drop

One wonders how long it will be before Hezbollah starts mixing it up with Israel. The last dustup with Hamas brought the Lebanon-based “Party of God” into the war within a week. Since the last fight, Hezbollah has been re-building its rocket potential.

Iran pulls the strings for both Hamas and Hezbollah and there is a political power struggle underway in that country. I cannot see it being to the political advantage of the current Iranian president not to unleash Hezbollah on Israel. Iranian clerics have already declared acts of violence against Israel by Muslims to be martyrdom for those who die in the service of Allah.

I always find it interesting how the people in the streets of cities far from the conflict react. Despite the ongoing intentional provocation of Israel by those who would see the Jewish state destroyed, there are never any street protests. It is only when Israel fights back that we see such moral outrage demonstrated by street marches.
