Are we on the verge of a war between Israel and Hezbollah?

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Brussels on Monday evening. Both discussed a number of regional issues but mainly focusing on Iran and Lebanese Hezbollah group. The prime minister was accompanied by the head of the Mossad (Israeli secret service), & the president of the National Security Council.

The meeting was scheduled to take place on Wednesday, but because of the funeral of former US President George H.W. Bush it was rescheduled for Monday.

This meeting comes in the wake of two air strikes in Syria, one of which took place a few days ago. One of those strikes were allegedly carried out by Israel targeting Hezbollah positions near the Syrian capital Damascus, the other allegedly carried out by the U.S. coalition targeting Syrian forces.

Also last week, Pompeo accused Tehran of illegally testing nuclear-capable warheads.

Israel has accused Hezbollah of building factories to improve missiles and make them more accurate in Lebanon. An accusation vehemently denied by the Lebanese group.

These accusations also comes as Israel charges Iran of sending new military shipments to the party through Beirut’s airport.

What Netanyahu wants is to convince the U.S. administration of the seriousness of the situation and perhaps also look forward to support from the White House if it launches a preemptive military strike against Hezbollah militias positions in Lebanon.

Israel will not take such a step without the green light from Washington.

But the most important issue is whether the Israeli public is ready to open the northern front now.

Prime Minister Netanyahu is now facing four corruption investigations all of which may have a negative impact on his political future.
Netanyahu probably is at his weakest point of his political career as he faces corruption allegations. If he goes to war, many will accuse him of keeping the indictments under wraps.

The Hamas movement Military Court of the Military Justice Court of the Ministry of Interior and National Security in Gaza issued on Monday, various sentences against 13 collaborators with Israel, sentencing six of them to death.
This comes on the heels of the botched Israeli Intellegance operation inside the Palestinian coastal enclave.
Here’s some of what the Hamas interior ministry spokesman said:

*We tell the collaborators of the occupation to review themselves because the hand of justice and law will come to them, and these provisions are a clear message to the collaborators of the occupation that this is their end and this is their inevitable fate.

*Our security was able to strike focused strikes agatthe occupation agents, and was able to thwart the security operations that the occupation was planning to implement in the Gaza Strip.

*The security services have achieved important achievements and successes, which resulted in closing in on the occupation agents, and the dismantling of a number of cells.

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) used to rule over Africa, South America, Asia & what used to be the Eastern Europe bloc. President Yaser Arafat knew very well that relationships with countries like India, China, Chad, Brazil & many more are essential to the Palestinian cause. But since President Mahmoud Abbas took office in 2005, he shifted the PLO strategy & focused more on western countries including the US, and to some extent on Russia & China. That strategy apparently have failed. And now we see its results. Israel has been on a tear. Its relations with Eastern European countries are flourishing, and its signing major military contracts with India, a country that used to be a historic supporter of the Palestinians. More African & Arab states are eager to forge diplomatic ties with Israel. Not a day that goes by, that we don’t hear about warming ties between Saudi Arabia & Israel. Just few weeks ago Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the Gulf country of Oman. And there’s talk of a visit to Bahrain, another Gulf state, in what could be a prelude to more & more visits to Gulf, Arab & Muslim nations.
This is no doubt a failure to President Abbas’s foreign policy. A failure to Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyadh al-Maliki’s foreign policy. It’s never too late for anything, but the PLO has entered the danger zone and if it doesn’t correct its foreign policy immediately, it risks isolating itself & de-legitimizing its cause.
