Military sources said the intelligence community has been monitoring southern Lebanon for any evidence of Hizbullah construction of tunnels meant to penetrate Israel. They said the assessment was that Hizbullah was digging tunnels that could reach a military base or civilian community along the Israeli border with Lebanon.
"Hizbullah desperately wants to conduct an attack that would cause strategic harm to Israel and yet not leave any fingerprints that this was Hizbullah," a military source said.
The sources said the military has been preparing for several scenarios. In one, Palestinians trained by Hizbullah would emerge from a tunnel that reached Israel and kill as many as people as possible in an Israeli civilian community.
In another scenario, the Hizbullah tunnel would reach an Israeli military base. There, Hizbullah would conduct a nighttime abduction of several soldiers and bring them to Lebanon as hostages.
The military has also not ruled out that Palestinians trained by Hizbullah would capture and boobytrap an apartment building with hundreds of Israeli residents. In this scenario, the Palestinians would demand the release of thousands of their compatriots held by Israel.
Israel's military has asserted that Hizbullah expanded deployment in Shi'ite villages along the Lebanese border with Israel. The military asserted that Hizbullah has deployed a brigade with up to 5,000 fighters and trained to stage a ground assault on the Jewish state.
"We believe that any future war will involve a major ground operation by Hizbullah that will target our civilian communities," another military source said.

"And the fourth kingdom shall be as strong as iron, inasmuch as iron breaks in pieces and shatters everything; and like iron that crushes, that kingdom will break in pieces and crush all the others. Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay."
"And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon." (Revelation 9:11 NKJV)
"The beast that you saw was, and is not, and will ascend out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is."
09 July 2008: The Beast. The anti or in-lieu-of false messianic man of ancient Bible prophecy is the long-anticipated 'end times' character in both Old Testament and New Testament texts. He has always been an enigma, a man of mystery, prophesied to be of fierce countenance, a master of deceit and deception, of such unearthly evil power and charisma that by his mere presence all of mankind will be subdued and submit to his will.
When the transgressors have reached their fullness,
A king shall arise,
Having fierce features,
Who understands sinister schemes.
He shall destroy fearfully,
And shall prosper and thrive;
He shall destroy the mighty, and also the holy people.
25 “ Through his cunning
He shall cause deceit to prosper under his rule;
And he shall exalt himself in his heart.
He shall destroy many in their prosperity.
He shall even rise against the Prince of princes;
But he shall be broken without human means.
26 “ And the vision of the evenings and mornings
Which was told is true;
Therefore seal up the vision,
For it refers to many days in the future.”

When Obama & Company declared that the transition from Hosni Mubarak’s rule to whatever is supposed to come next had to begin “now” with Mubarak’s immediate resignation, they utterly failed to account for specific provisions of the Egyptian Constitution.
Not 24 hours later and still breathless from all of the overnight backpedalling, they realized the enormity of their sophomoric gaffe and then demanded that Mubarak sign all the documents necessary to transition the government to whatever it may be next and demand yet again the he get the heck out of Cairo “yesterday” Isn’t this the same kind of over-the-top, pompous American arrogance that Obama went on a world tour to apologize for? What is obvious here is that our king, The One, not only has no clothes on, but he has no alibi.
Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli government, are you paying attention to this? Do you really want these people working as a “good offices” intermediary on the issues of Israeli sovereignty and “Palestinian” statehood? I should hope not. I should hope that Israel answers to a Higher Authority than the current occupant of the Oval Office.
Now, about those other forces. If you listen to the MSM they’re all gaga over the presence of Code Pink in Cairo’s Tahrir Square protests. Code Pink is a Leftist distraction involved on a Middle Eastern tour courtesy of the Ikhwan Travelling Three-Ring Circus.
The real boots on the ground are the Ikhwan’s “A-Teams,” the Takfir wal Hijra and HAMAS in Gaza. These Islamic purists, born and bred of the al-Ikhwan al-Muslimun, are killing Egyptian security forces in running gun battles in the Sinai, in the border town of Rafah and conducting hit-and-run military operations like the one last weekend near Al-Arish that took out a natural gas pipeline serving Israel and Jordan. Half of Israel’s electricity comes from that gas. This occurred in the same timeframe as Egypt’s receiving permission for a waiver of the Egyptian-Israel peace treaty to deploy a couple of combat brigades into the Sinai. Eventually the other real boots on the ground, the IDF, will have to do something to both contain HAMAS and the other Gaza terrorists and to maintain the increasing threat to its peace treaty with Egypt.
These are the real issues that need to be addressed to make sense of the current chaotic scenario unfolding in Egypt. Jordan and the Saudi’s are also threatened by these same forces. And Lebanon, now firmly in Iranian orbit and guarded by Hezbollah and IRGC regulars, is a time bomb whose detonation will occur much sooner than expected. It is in America’s utmost national security interest to have these issues dealt with resolutely by experienced professionals. Keeping our B-Team on the job is a recipe for an unprecedented disaster of the Biblical Isaiah 19 and beyond proportions.
