The New York Times has a strange article today: Israel Says Hezbollah Positions Put Lebanese at Risk:
As Israel prepares for what it sees as an almost inevitable next battle with Hezbollah, the Shiite Lebanese organization that fought a monthlong war against Israel in 2006, Israeli military officials and experts are warning that the group has done more than significantly build up its firepower since then.
Effectively, the Israelis are warning that in the event of another conflict with Hezbollah, many Lebanese civilians will probably be killed, and that it should not be considered Israel’s fault.
The big question is: why now? Hezbollah is very busy in Syria and would be plainly foolish to open a second front with the Israeli's.
Israel's former ambassador Oren has several times that he prefers Al Qaeda over Assad.
So the big question is: is Israel contemplating to attack Hezbollah in order to help AL Qaeda win in Syria. These sudden threats may point in that direction and may be meant to prepare the public opinion for it.
