Iran Flirts With Disaster


The Islamic Republic of Iran is playing with fire. To distract from its maneuvers in Syria, where along with its proxies - including the Lebanese Shiite Hezbollah terrorist group, as well as Iraqi, Afghan and Yemeni Shiite militias it controls - Iran is gunning for the Israeli border in the Quneitra province of southwestern Syria. Tehran is directing Hamas, the Islamic terror group who they fund and arm, to provoke Israel by attacking the Israeli communities around Gaza.

Israel is rightfully concerned about Iran and its proxies Hezbollah and Hamas, simultaneously creating a two-front attack against it -or possibly even three - with Hamas and PIJ in the south or the Gaza Strip, Iran, Hezbollah and Shiite militias at the Golan Heights, and Hezbollah in southern Lebanon.

Iran is clearly tempting providence and its attacks through proxies might inflame the region. Israel has the will and the means to fight back, but this time the U.S. administration might not hold Israel back.
