Eyes on Missiles Reaching Lebanon
Nadene Goldfoot
Lebanon has a population of 4,196,453 of which 60% are Shi'a/Sunni as of 2010. Christians are no doubt in danger.   Lebanon's neighbor is Syria with a population of 19,405,000 with 90% Sunni Muslims.  Syria is a collaborator with Iran with a population of 70,495,782 with 98% Shi'a Muslims, and both have the goal to destroy Israel.  Right now Syria is involved with a fight with rebels to take down the regime of their President Bashar al-Assad, who supports the Hizbollah terrorists.  Syria fired on protesters on Friday, killing 20 of their own people of which two were children age 12 and 13.  This is the country whose TV program I watched from Israel between 1980-1985 where their soldiers bit into puppies and snakes showing how brave they were.  To me it showed they were outright crazy. 

Due to the fact that Syria is a little worried, they have moved hundreds of their long range Iranian missiles into Lebanon for safe-keeping.  This has been going on for the past two weeks.  Not only missiles, but Syrians are also entering Lebanon.  Some must be the rebels escaping persecution.  Others could be the missile caretakers. 

In the meantime, Iran is having a military exercise on Monday trying out their various long range missiles.  Some are said to be able to reach the center of Israel and the USA military bases that are within range.  They continue to deny using their atomic capabilities for missiles.  Sure, and the moon is made of mozzarella cheese. 

Israel, a population of about 7,441,700 of which 5,795 are Jews and 1,571,000 are Arabs who can be Sunni, Christian or Druze,  must watch their Lebanon/Israel border on the north.  They can be attacked at any time.  Gone are the days when Israel's pal was Major Saad Haddad of the Lebanese Christian Militia who helped to guard the border.  When he died, Hizbollah took over the area.   Now Israel must also watch what exits from Iran as well.
