Civil War in Lebanon?

Yesterday, we posted a Lee Smith piece on the assassination of a Lebanese general. Today, Aymenn Jawad al-Tamimi explores whether that assassination might lead Lebanon to civil war – further destabilizing Israel’s northern neighbor and, possibly, bringing Hezbollah to even greater power.

Undoubtedly, the weakening or fall of the Assad regime translates to a weakening of Hezbollah’s position in Lebanon, and it is notable how muted the group’s response has been to the al-Hassan affair, which indicates that the organization certainly does feel under pressure over the growing perception of its role as a pro-Assad partisan force in Syria.

    WE ARE ENBARKING THE FINAL MOMENTS OF WORLD HISTORY. SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL BY EVERY MEANS POSSIBLE SHOULD BE THE HEART OF EVERY CHRISTIAN BELIEVER. THE RETURN OF JESUS WILL DEFINE OUR COMMITMENT TO GOD.

    WE MUST PRAY DAILY FOR ISRAEL. THE ENEMY NEIGHBORS NEVER STOP FIGHTING. THEY ARE A BREED APART AND VERY LOW ON THE ‘FOOD-CHAIN’. THERE IS POWER IN PRAYER THEREFORE, WE MUST PRAY HARD FOR ISRAEL.

      How true, but sometimes desperate events call for desperate measures. It is in the best interest of everyone concerned if this civil war is stopped. Yes even by military force.

    One thing you can be sure of, if it’s bad for Isreal, bad for America, and good forthe muslim brotherhood, then obama likes it, and will work to make it happen. I am sorry to all Jewish people that Americans have become so stupid we voted this piece of feces in. Hopefully we will elect Romney to take his place. He is a good man, and stands with Isreal, not just in words, but in his actions as well.

"informing, equipping and mobilizing individuals and churches to support the
State of Israel"

Rabbi's Commentary
A Fragile Peace

As we continue to pray for a lasting peace, one of our most critical tasks is to help Israel recover – to rebuild, to restore shattered lives, to comfort those who have lost loved ones or livelihoods. And none of this is possible without you who continue to stand by the Jewish people.
