In February 2013, following months of investigation, the Bulgarian government accused the “militant wing of Hezbollah of bombing a bus filled with Israeli tourists in the Black Sea city of Burgas.” Five Israeli tourists, the driver and the bomber were killed in the July 2012 blast. This terror attack on European soil reignited a longstanding debate over whether to designate the militant wing of Hezbollah or the Islamist party as a terrorist organization. This has only masked the raging covert Hezbollah-Israeli warfare, which potentially threatens many innocent lives.
This terror attack took place in the wake of a series of foiled attacks on Israeli citizens and interests in India, Thailand, Azerbaijan and other areas. Conversely, Hezbollah and its Iranian patron have sustained a series of assassinations and bombings targeting important scientists, militants and military installations. What are the consequences of this raging warfare that Secretary General of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah called the open war? Will it lead to another destructive war in Lebanon or other deadly attacks on Israeli interests and Jews similar to those that took place in Argentina in the 1990s?
This talk traces and surveys the ideological and operational conflict between Hezbollah and Israel. It offers a rare and insightful look into Hezbollah’s political and Jihadi structure, as well as into Hezbollah’s probable defensive and offensive preparations of Jihadi operations against Israel locally and internationally. It also examines Israel’s potential preparations and response to foil and subdue Hezbollah’s menace and threat.
No cameras or recordings are allowed during the talk.
