Official: Israel Unsuccessful in Preventing Hizbullah Rockets Buildup

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

An Israeli defense official said the Jewish state has not been able to stop the build up of Hizbullah's rocket arsenal.

Head of political-military affairs at Defense Ministry, Maj.-Gen Amos Gilad, told a security conference in Tel Aviv that Iran has overseen the construction of Hizbullah's arsenal of 100,000 rockets.

He also accused Tehran of spending billions of dollars to build up Hizbullah's firepower, which threatens all of Israel's territory.

"This is a military threat, not a terrorist one," Gilad said.

Israel has "not been successful in preventing a buildup (of rockets) in Lebanon," The Jerusalem Post quoted him as saying.

Alleged Israeli action to prevent Hizbullah's armament program, as mentioned by foreign press reports, is the exception, Gilad told the conference.

Turning to Iran, he said the Islamic Republic can break out to nuclear weapons "very quickly" and Israel must maintain operational readiness for any threat that may arise.

Israel today "can defeat any combination of enemies," Gilad told the conference, but the moment Iran goes nuclear and triggers an Arab nuclear arms race, the region will turn into "hell," he warned.

How can you stop the terror party from building its arsenal of weapons when all the state institutions facilitate its activities and when it controls every crossing and import point and hides behind civilians.

The Nazis were also strong. Israel is very strong. What does that mean? Strength does not equal "good".

I agree, Israel and its FSA-Al Qaeda jihadist terrorist allies are extremist terrorists.

Until we disarm Hezbollah, Lebanon will never know peace ! Hezbollah or the KEZB is the only obstacle to a prosperous Lebanon !

Israel Funds both sides of every conflict all over the world, every person in power, has to have the consent of the jewish lobby. I hope the day comes where my m8 comrades will see this too, that they are all traitors, no1 is ashraf el ness, they sold us for the big guys long ago, Khomeini was brought up by the C.I.A, Mossad, and France, he was given assylum in france for years, and got back to iran in a private air france, only to declare they are the great satan shortly after his arrival ? something doesnt make sense, please be reasonable guys.

The Iraq- Iran war is the biggest example, America and israel funded both countries to annihilate each other. And both countries gratefully accepted american and israeli help.

israel didnt fund iraq, only iran. Iranian airforce was able to fly only due to zionist spares and technicians. Actually israel bombed iraq...

lol.....what a lame article. How can you expect Israel to stop these scumbags when they have an open door through Syria that is supplying them destructive weapons from Satan himself aka Iran. Why do you think the party of satan is in Syria along side the wimp Assad. Sooner or later Israel will indeed stop the build up by going in and cleaning house....and hopefully this time around they finish the job and rid us of this disease once and for all.

Note: No where do I commend/support/worship these Israeli scums either...but if I was to chose my poison, I would chose them over HA anyday! At least the end result will be for the better of the country!
