After Israel’s war with Hizbullah was prematurely shut down last summer by the political cowardice of Prime Minister Olmert, we all knew that we hadn’t heard the last of Hizbullah. Given that Israel handed over the responsibility for the ceasefire to — sigh — the UN, it was only a matter of time before the Syrians and the Iranians rearmed Hizbullah and the war resumed.
Ehud Olmert traded in his birthright and didn’t even get a mess of porridge in return. He bought himself a few months of breathing space, which he has frittered away chasing the various phantasms of “peace”.
Carl in Jerusalem at Israel Matzav is going out on a limb — he says the new war will begin soon, only this time he thinks it will skip the proxy and go straight to the patron. He’s predicting an imminent war between Israel and Syria.
Carl bases his prognosis on recent stories about the movement of Syrian arms and personnel, and the shipment of advanced weaponry from Russia to Syria. According to an article in the Jerusalem Post, Syria has recently massed troops and equipment on the border between Israel and Syria, increasing their presence there to levels not seen for many years.
Haaretz and Jerusalem Post have reported on the flow of advanced weaponry to Syria from Russia. Diplomatic attempts to get the Russians to scale back their arms sales to Syria have been brushed aside — the Russians are always ready to sell, and in Boy Assad they have found a buyer.

The Syrians reportedly were impressed with the success that Hizbullah had using the latest Russian-made anti-tank missiles. Even the best Israeli tank armor was vulnerable to Hizbullah’s missile attacks. The Chinless Ophthalmologist in Damascus has put the new missiles onto his must-have list, and they and other Russian armaments are flowing into Syria.
Here’s the bottom line from Carl:
I’ve already gone out on a limb and said that I believe that there will be another war in the north by late spring or early summer. I’ll go further: May 24. That’s the day after the Shavuoth holiday here. I believe war will happen on the northern front no later than May 24. You heard it here first.
Meanwhile, our buffoonish ‘defense’ minister
AmirComrade Peretz is trying to convince our corrupt ‘prime’ minister Ehud K. Olmert that now is the time to further divide the country by evacuating ‘outposts.’ It’s good that God watches over this country, because otherwise we wouldn’t stand a chance.
Keep watch as events develop this spring. We’ll find out if Carl is right.
