Lebanon, the Tunnels and the United Nations
After discovering another tunnel across the Lebanese border into Israel, the IDF filled it with explosives to prevent any possible use of it by Hezbollah fighters. “Anyone who enters it from the Lebanese side endangers their life,” the IDF said.
“The Lebanese government is responsible for the digging of the tunnels from Lebanese territory. This is a serious violation of Israeli sovereignty.”
Furthermore, all of these tunnels were dug under the watchful eyes of the United Nations peacekeeping force, UNIFIL, which was supposed to stop all Hezbollah activity in Southern Lebanon. Not only did the United Nations force not stop Hezbollah from digging these attack tunnels, they also allowed Iran to transfer 150,000 long range missiles for Hezbollah to use to attack Israel.
Israel can never trust the nations of the world, including the United Nations and she must do everything in her own power to defend herself. This situation cannot be allowed to repeat itself. Israel will one day have to destroy all of those missiles and destroy Hezbollah, to free itself of the Iranian threat on our Northern border.
When Iran repeatedly says that it wants to destroy Israel, Israel does not have the luxury of ignoring those threats. They must be taken seriously even though the Unites Nations as well as the nations of the world choose to ignore them. Such is the hypocricy of the nations.
