Israel and Lebanon exchanging threats

Israel and Lebanon have been exchanging threats all week.

It started with Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who on a trip to the Lebanese border with new IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz on Tuesday, warned that Israeli soldiers may one day have to enter Lebanon again.

That drew responses from Hezbullah chieftain Hassan Nasrallah, who on Wednesday told his terrorist gang to prepare to conquer the Galilee, and from Lebanese President Michel Suleiman, who claimed that Barak was just trying to 'raise morale' and that he should be warned that an invasion of Lebanon will not be a walk in the park for Israel.

In response, Prime Minister Netanyahu told Nasrallah to go back to his cave.

Barak is the last person who should be making threats. After all, he was the one who ordered the army to flee from Lebanon in 2000, which is why Hezbullah has 40,000 rockets aimed at Israel today.

There was no reason for Barak to make that comment. Let him keep his mouth shut and do his talking through the IDF's tanks, planes and guns.
