    Could you imagine if Israel had to pay for the actions of its military on their own?

      Bribing Democrats and Republicans to give you weapons is a hell of a lot cheaper than buying weapons.

      I’m not at all supportive of Israel, but are you really defending Hezbollah bombing civilian targets almost exclusively - the very thing you (mostly rightfully) accuse Israel of doing?

        No. That’s a ridiculous whataboutism strawman.

        Sporadic terrorist attacks are in no way acceptable but responding with a full scale invasion that would increase civilian casualties many times over would be even worse.

        Decrying the latter ≠ defending the former

          Where did I say I support a full scale invasion or an invasion of any kind (I don’t)? Also the attacks are not sporadic. We’re talking about daily rocket attacks on the entire northern region of Israel (mostly targeting population centers, not military targets).

          Sporadic? They’ve been bombing Israel daily since the 8th of October. Some of those leading to fires all over the north of Israel.
          Just yesterday they launched over 200 rockets plus drones.

          Hezbollah has already started a war with Israel.

        Nah, but I’m also against funding 20% of the budget of an army who extremely questionable rules of engagement and questionable accountability when they deliberately choose to target civilians in masss. Not only that but continuously disrespect and spit on the face of the country that’s funding them. The IDF can do whatever the fuck they want, but they can do it on their own dime and keep their shitty propaganda out of my face.

        Hezbollah attacks military bases almost exclusively (granted their high-tech drones strapped with a bomb don’t always land where intended). Even Hezbollah’s recent attacks deep into israel targeted military bases.

        Hezbollah attacks Israel military sites near Lebanon border

        Hezbollah footage ‘shows successful attack on Israel’s Iron Dome’

        Israel attacks civilian targets almost exclusively is what you meant to say. It’s an official israeli military strategy called the Dahiya-Doctrine.

        Israel uses catapult to shoot fireballs into Lebanon

        Video footage shows Israeli soldiers on the Lebanese border using a medieval trebuchet catapult to shoot fireballs into southern Lebanon. It has been reported that the army is using the weapon to set fire to vegetation on the Lebanese side of the border in order to clear it in a low cost manner.

    They have nothing left to bomb in Gaza, so they need another target to avoid a ceasefire.

    “Oh shit, we’re finally getting backed into a corner to end the conflict I was using to remain in power. Now, hold on a second…”

    Someone should tell Netanyahu that picking fight after fight to solve your own domestic issues has an ever growing chance of you ending up in the hospital. Or the morgue.

          Don’t forget Yitzhak Rabin. He worked towards peace while prime minister. Which is why Netanyahu and Likud marched calling for his death, almost certainly inspiring or at least encouraging Rabin’s assassination.

    Israel needs to be stopped, by force as they’ve refused any other attempts to stop their genocide, terrorism, and crimes against humanity through diplomacy.

    The terrror state of Israel likewise needs to be disbanded in it’s entirety and its leadership trialed at The Hague.

      And what’ll be after the disbandment? Hamas who train children with guns and parade naked bodies? Or the PLO who fund families of suicide bombers?

      The world either needs to treat Israel as Russia (risking them thinking “we’ve got nothing to lose” and actually genociding Gaza) Or to take the security role off of Israel, and manage Palestinians instead of Israel, who prefer dead Gazans over dead Israelis.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    A gunman was captured after opening fire at the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon’s capital, Beirut, on Wednesday — an attack that took place as U.S. ally Israel signaled it could soon launch an offensive in the country against Iran-backed militant group Hezbollah.

    Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned early Wednesday that Israel was “prepared for very intense action in the north,” as he visited a border city hit by wildfires sparked by Hezbollah rockets.

    President Joe Biden criticized Netanyahu in a new interview, but also dispatched top aides to the region for talks as Washington pushes for a deal that would end eight months of war and secure the release of hostages held by Hamas.

    Ben-Gvir has threatened to collapse Netanyahu’s government if he agrees to a cease-fire proposal outlined in Biden’s surprise announcement Friday, raising doubts over Israel’s stance even as the families of remaining hostages push for a deal.

    In a rare and exclusive interview with NBC News in April, the political party and militia’s second-in-command Naim Qassem said that Hezbollah was determined not to ramp up its attacks across Lebanon’s southern border, but said it would respond in kind to any Israeli escalation.

    The IDF said Wednesday it had launched new operations in the areas of the Bureij refugee camp and eastern Deir al-Balah in central Gaza, where many have fled seeking safety from the military’s deepening offensive in Rafah.
