Israel fights back!
Israel is currently in the middle of a war against Hezbollah, a fanatical Islamic terrorist organization based in south Lebanon. Hezbollah's goal is to destory Israel and murder all of her Jewish citizens, including women and children.
These Islamic terrorists from Hezbollah have literally murdered hundreds of Americans and Israelis. These Islamic Fascists are backed by the rogue country of Iran whose president has openly declared multiple times that his goal is to destroy Israel and commit genocide on millions of her Jewish men, women and children.

from Hezbollah or other Islamic fanatical terrorist organizations
Since Israel's war on Hezbollah and Hamas is not over, there are literally hundreds of stories to be told and most media outlets are covering Israel's war on the Islamic terrorists from Lebanon and the Palestinian territories.
For the latest news, check out:
Below I copy information from the U.S. State Department web site on Hezbollah. Both the United States Department and Israel's Foreign Ministry define Hezbollah as a terrorist organization.
I also copy below some suggestions on what you can do to help to defeat the Hezbollah, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Al-Qaeda and other Islamic Fascists.
A good friend (thanks PG!) sent me an email with suggestions on how we can help defeat the Islamic Fascists:
1. Receive Daily Updates
Many of us recognize the importance of the Internet as the new battleground for Israel's image. It's time to do it better, and coordinate our on-line efforts on behalf of Israel. An Israeli software company has developed a free, safe and useful tool for us - the Internet Megaphone.
2. Learn about Islamic Fascism
The "Conservative Truth" web site has published pictures that show Islamic fascists calling for genocide of non-Muslims. Learn about it and click here for details.
3. Thank some people: Friends
As I sit here in Jerusalem writing, a fierce battle rages in Lebanon as our dear sons fight for the life and safety of the Jewish people in their homeland.
More suggestions to help defeat the Islamic Fascists will be published soon.

Description Formed in 1982 in response to the Israeli invasion of Lebanon, this Lebanon-based radical Shia group takes its ideological inspiration from the Iranian revolution and the teachings of the late Ayatollah Khomeini. The Majlis al-Shura, or Consultative Council, is the group’s highest governing body and is led by Secretary General Hasan Nasrallah. Hizballah is dedicated to liberating Jerusalem and eliminating Israel, and has formally advocated ultimate establishment of Islamic rule in Lebanon. Nonetheless, Hizballah has actively participated in Lebanon’s political system since 1992. Hizballah is closely allied with, and often directed by, Iran but has the capability and willingness to act independently. Though Hizballah does not share the Syrian regime’s secular orientation, the group has been a strong ally in helping Syria advance its political objectives in the region.
Activities Known or suspected to have been involved in numerous anti-US and anti-Israeli terrorist attacks, including the suicide truck bombings of the US Embassy and US Marine barracks in Beirut in 1983 and the US Embassy annex in Beirut in 1984. Three members of Hizballah, ‘Imad Mughniyah, Hasan Izz-al-Din, and Ali Atwa, are on the FBI’s list of 22 Most Wanted Terrorists for the 1985 hijacking of TWA Flight 847 during which a US Navy diver was murdered. Elements of the group were responsible for the kidnapping and detention of Americans and other Westerners in Lebanon in the 1980s. Hizballah also attacked the Israeli Embassy in Argentina in 1992 and the Israeli cultural center in Buenos Aires in 1994. In 2000, Hizballah operatives captured three Israeli soldiers in the Shab’a Farms and kidnapped an Israeli noncombatant.
Hizballah also provides guidance and financial and operational support for Palestinian extremist groups engaged in terrorist operations in Israel and the occupied territories.
In 2004, Hizballah launched an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that left Lebanese airspace and flew over the Israeli town of Nahariya before crashing into Lebanese territorial waters. Ten days prior to the event, the Hizballah Secretary General said Hizballah would come up with new measures to counter Israeli Air Force violations of Lebanese airspace. Hizballah also continued launching small scale attacks across the Israeli border, resulting in the deaths of several Israeli soldiers. In March 2004, Hizballah and HAMAS signed an agreement to increase joint efforts to perpetrate attacks against Israel. In late 2004, Hizballah’s al-Manar television station, based in Beirut with an estimated ten million viewers worldwide, was prohibited from broadcasting in France. Al-Manar was placed on the Terrorist Exclusion List (TEL) in the United States, which led to its removal from the program offerings of its main cable service provider, and made it more difficult for al-Manar associates and affiliates to operate in the United States.
Strength Several thousand supporters and a few hundred terrorist operatives.
Location/Area of Operation Operates in the southern suburbs of Beirut, the Bekaa Valley, and southern Lebanon. Has established cells in Europe, Africa, South America, North America, and Asia.
External Aid Receives financial, training, weapons, explosives, political, diplomatic, and organizational aid from Iran, and diplomatic, political, and logistical support from Syria. Hizballah also receives funding from charitable donations and business interests.
