The violence we are seeing now on the Israeli border with Gaza was extremely predictable. Iran, with its tentacles spreading all the way to the Levant from the Fertile Crescent, has long desired to turn the regional Middle Eastern war on the Jewish State, once Assad was firmly in power and the Islamic State defeated.
From the Mullah’s terrorist army in Lebanon and Syria, Hezbollah, to the terrorist army in the ‘Palestinian’ territories, Hamas, to Iran’s militias in Iraq, all are now turning to ‘wipe Israel off the map’ as they like to say in Tehran.
Yes, Iran is behind the flare up in the Gaza Strip, as the leaders of the territory sent its children to the border to threaten Israeli troops and end up being shot. The home-made Katyusha rockets have been flying for weeks now, threatening the civilian population in Sderot, Ashkelon, and other Israeli border cities, just as the region was terrorized in 2014.
The ostensible reason for the demonstrations was President Trump’s decision to move the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. However, this was just an excuse, an excuse to start another uprising. An excuse to get more kids killed in front of the cameras.
Israel has seen pressure from Hezbollah in Syria and from the Syrian government itself, which sent a drone into Israeli airspace several weeks back, probing the Jewish State’s defenses.
The only question now is how hard Israel will hit back to stop another Intifada.
