Iran & Israel Trade Warnings

Terrorists in south Lebanon have again fired Katyusha rockets at Israel, apparently as a warning to Prime Minister designate Binyamin Netanyahu who has declared: "Iran will not be permitted to acquire nuclear weapons!" In another development, more key Iranian military advisers have reportedly been stationed in south Lebanon. These events come against the backdrop of the latest IAEA report that Iran is continuing its nuclear program. Menashe Amir, a leading Israeli expert on Iran, assesses the current situation.

Gaza At Crossroads

Rockets are being launched at Israeli civilians not only from the Gaza Strip but also from Lebanon. However, Israeli officials view the new Lebanese rocketing as a Palestinian attempt to draw Israel into war with Lebanon. IsraCast quotes one Israel source as saying "we have no intension of retaliating or being drawn into a second front, but let's hope Lebanon does not let it become a habit". Meanwhile, Israel has agreed to more three-hour ceasefires to allow Palestinians in Gaza to stock up on food supplies via Israel, while the Israeli leadership considers whether to expand the military operation in light of the continuous Hamas rocketing or to go for a ceasefire.

Ahmadinejad - Nasser's Successor

Not a week passes without Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatening 'to wipe Israel off the map'. His latest diatribe came shortly before the June 5th anniversary of the Six Day War, when the Israel Defense Forces broke the stranglehold of massed Arab armies that threatened to annihilate the Jewish state in 1967. On June 5th forty-one years later, Isracast poses the question - is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad destined to suffer the same fate as Gamal Abdel Nasser?

HEZBOLLAH FILE

Along the northern border, Israel is on high alert to face two threats. Syria has been building up its military power, buying new weapons and training more than in the past. Israel has sent calming messages to Damascus and Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has declared that Israel's big civil defense exercise does not pose a threat to anyone. However, IsraCast reports that it's a different story with Hezbollah which has vowed to launch a bloody attack on the Jewish state.

BATTEN DOWN THE HATCHES!

The Israeli public is paying little notice to Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's denial that Israeli agents were not involved in the assassination of Hezbollah arch-terrorist Imad Mugniyah in the heart of Damascus. One newspaper article carried the sardonic headline: 'Mossad Chief Meir Dagan Is Sitting Shiva' - (seven day mourning period for the dead). The Hezbollah chief is known to have planned and executed the murder of scores of Israelis and the cross border raid that triggered the Second Lebanon War in July 2006. IsraCast is of the view Imad Mugniyah had become Israel's 'Osama Bin Laden' in the eyes of Israeli intelligence.

PRELUDE TO WINOGRAD

A group of IDF reserve soldiers interrupted the Knesset's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee during its presentation of a report into the Second Lebanon War of 2005. They protested committee members focusing on military aspects of the war while not dealing with the government's responsibility. Although scathing in its criticism, the report itself revealed no surprises - the IDF was ill prepared to go to war after Hezbollah guerrillas crossed the northern border killing 7 soldiers and abducting 2 others while rocketing Galilee with Katyushas. But above and beyond the Hezbollah war, IsraCast says the report came against the background of a similar situation evolving in the Hamas controlled Gaza Strip where Palestinian terrorists continuously rocket the Israeli town of Sderot.

GOING LAST MIDDLE EAST MILE

About to enter the home-stretch of his second and final term, U.S. President George Bush is making a final attempt to reach an Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement after the Hamas coup in Gaza. The IsraCast analysis is that Bush is exploiting the split between Hamas and Fatah to unify West Bank Palestinians and moderate Arab states on an accelerated two-state solution. Bush told the Palestinians they must renounce Hamas and terrorism and recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Israelis had to settle the Negev and Galilee and not the West Bank.

SECOND THOUGHTS ON LEBANON WAR

On the first anniversary of the Second Lebanon War, Israel was soul searching about the 163 Israeli soldiers and civilians who were killed and the several thousand others who were wounded last summer. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert toured part of the northern border declaring he was right to launch the war in the face of the Hezbollah provocations. IsraCast is of the view that Olmert is now on political death row trying to appeal a condemnatory verdict by the final Winograd report that could lead to his resignation.

ISRAELI - SYRIAN DILEMMA

As forecast by IsraCast, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is now ready to actively explore the intentions of Syria President Bashaar Assad. Olmert had to fill two necessary requirements: first the greenlight from U.S. President George W. Bush and second a new and respected defense minister, to ease the jitters of an Israeli public which has grave doubts about Olmert's capabilties after the Second Lebanon War.

SDEROT UNDER FIRE

As anticipated by IsraCast, the bloody Palestinian infighting between Hamas and Fatah in the Gaza Strip has spilled over into Israel. The Palestinians have launched over 30 Qassam rockets at the Israeli town of Sderot apparently in an attempt to deflect the focus from their internal feud that killed at least 15 Palestinians on Tuesday, May 15th. The rockets are terrorizing the children, women and men. In the initial bombardment, one woman was seriously injured and dozens more were lightly hurt and suffered from shock. While the Israeli government considers what to do, Jewish-Russian philanthropist Arkadi Gaydamak has stepped in with his own private solution.
