Is it possible that the war in the Middle East could eventually go nuclear?
If the fighting could have been limited to just Israel and Hamas, I think that there would have been a zero percent chance of Israel using nuclear weapons. But now it appears that Hezbollah, Syria, Iran and potentially other parties are likely to get involved too, and that means that Israel will literally be fighting a war of national survival. If it gets to a point where the Israelis think that they could potentially be overrun by their enemies, they aren’t going to leave their most powerful weapons on the shelf.
At this point, everyone knows that Israel has nukes.
According to Wikipedia, it has been estimated that Israel currently possesses somewhere between 80 and 400 warheads…
The State of Israel is widely believed to possess nuclear weapons. Estimates of Israel’s stockpile range between 80 and 400 nuclear warheads, and the country is believed to possess the ability to deliver them in several methods, including by aircraft, as submarine-launched cruise missiles, and via the Jericho series of intermediate to intercontinental range ballistic missiles. Its first deliverable nuclear weapon is thought to have been completed in late 1966 or early 1967; which would make it the sixth country in the world to have developed them.
And it appears that some Israeli leaders have been thinking about potentially using this arsenal.
When asked about Hezbollah entering the war, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that the terror group will be hit “with a force it cannot even imagine” if it does so…
Hezbollah will make “the mistake of its life” if it goes to war with Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned during a visit with soldiers near the country’s northern border with Lebanon. “If Hezbollah decides to enter the war” the IDF hit it with such strength that “it will long for the Second Lebanon War,” Netanyahu said. It will be hit “with a force it cannot even imagine” with devastating consequences for both the terror group and Lebanon which hosts it, he said.
Other than using nukes, how could Israel produce such an outcome?
Fighting Hezbollah would truly be a nightmare scenario for the Israeli government. Hezbollah possesses at least 130,000 missiles, and they are far more powerful and far more sophisticated than the missiles that Hamas has been using.
Can you imagine the horrors that we would witness if thousands of those missiles started raining down on Tel Aviv and Jerusalem?
This is not something that Israel wants.
But the Israeli government knows that Hezbollah will almost certainly enter the war once the IDF goes into Gaza, and so there had been talk of conducting a pre-emptive strike to take out those missiles before they could be launched…
The Israeli government is coming under growing pressure from security establishment hawks to launch a pre-emptive strike on Hezbollah in Lebanon – but is facing strong opposition from the US, which fears a two-front war would risk igniting a major regional conflict. Since Israel struck back at Gaza after the Hamas attack on 7 October, the Lebanese-based Islamist militia group has repeatedly fired on Israeli settlements, leading to an Israeli evacuation of the northern border, including the town of Kiryat Shmona. The threat of a major Hezbollah offensive led to calls from hawks for a strike at its sizeable arsenal of missiles.
Of course if Hezbollah enters the war, it is inevitable that Iran will eventually get directly involved too.
In fact, Israel’s Minister of Economy is specifically warning that “the head of the snake” will be cut off if Hezbollah declares war on Israel…
Israel last night vowed to cut off ‘the head of the snake’ and launch a military attack against Iran if Tehran-backed terror group Hezbollah joins the war. In an exclusive interview with The Mail on Sunday, Nir Barkat, Israel’s Minister of Economy, warned that Iran’s Ayatollahs will be ‘wiped off the face of the earth’ should Hezbollah, their proxy terror group in Lebanon, attack Israel.
So how in the world could Israel possibly wipe them “off the face of the earth”?
Only by using nukes.
Needless to say, if either side actually decides to use weapons of mass destruction, everything will change.
Even though it was Israel that was attacked by Hamas, we are already seeing a massive explosion of anti-Jewish hate all over the world.
Over the weekend, thousands of pro-Hamas protesters caused havoc in the heart of New York City…
Anti-Israel protesters and police clashed in Brooklyn after thousands flooded a predominantly Arab and Middle Eastern neighborhood Saturday night. The protest in Bay Ridge saw thousands of the pro-Palestinian demonstrators chant ‘move, cops, get out the way. We know you’re Israeli-trained’ as they descended on the community, stopping traffic and lighting fires in the process. Part of the procession, billed online as Flood Brooklyn for Palestine, began to clash with NYPD officers as night fell, video shows – as their numbers swelled to an estimated 5,000 over the course of the day.
Over in London, approximately 100,000 pro-Hamas demonstrators chanted slogans as they marched to the office of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak…
About 100,000 people joined a pro-Palestinian demonstration in central London on Saturday, marching through the British capital to demand an immediate ceasefire in Gaza following the Hamas attack on Israel two weeks ago. Chanting “Free Palestine”, holding banners and waving Palestinian flags, the protesters moved through London before massing at Downing Street, the official residence and office of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.
The British will pay a great price for allowing so many radical Muslims to migrate into their country.
In fact, nations all over the western world will come to deeply regret their immigration policies, because we are going to see a tremendous amount of violence in the days ahead.
And anyone that is associated with Israel is going to be a potential target.
On Saturday, the president of a Detroit synagogue was found dead just outside her own home. She had been stabbed multiple times…
The president of a Detroit synagogue was found stabbed to death outside her home Saturday morning, police and the synagogue said. The Isaac Agree Downtown Synagogue put out a statement later in the afternoon identifying the victim as board president Samantha Woll. Detroit police responded to a 911 call of an unresponsive person around 6:30 a.m. and found a body outside a home on Joliet Place. The woman, who was not immediately identified by investigators had suffered multiple stab wounds, police said.
Evil is growing all over the world.
And what we have experienced so far is only just the beginning.
For Israel’s enemies, this is the opportunity that they have been anticipating for so long.
They think that they will finally have a shot at wiping Israel off the map.
But in the end they may be the ones that get wiped off the map instead.
