Israel has stepped up military activity in and around Lebanon as can be witnessed by the recent detection of a submarine off the country’s southern coast, reports the Lebanese newspaper Ad-Diyar. According to the paper, French tracking technology detected the submarine, which has been making regular sweeps of the area. The French then informed the UN of the submarine’s presence.  According to the paper, Hezbollah has not yet been informed of the submarine’s presence.

Tensions are high along Israel’s  border with Lebanon. Bulgaria recently concluded that a terror attack on its soil last summer, in which 5 Israelis were killed, was orchestrated by Hezbollah. The Shiite terror organization has also been aiding Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in his battle against rebel forces, and Israel fears that the violence could spill over into the country.

On Sunday Hezbollah terror chief Hassan Nasrallah addressed the possibility of conflict with Israel, saying, “”I am warning the Israelis and their allies that the Resistance in Lebanon will not keep quiet over any violation that occurs on Lebanese territory.” This threat comes only weeks after Lebanon complained to the UN of the continued presence of Israeli fighter jets in their airspace only hours before an airstrike took out a weapons convoy headed from Syria to Lebanon.

  • If Hezbollah didn’t know then they surely do now. Max.

  • The French reported it to the UN? So while France intervenes in Mali to kill Islamists, where Jews are concerned its Drancy all over again? Where’s Klaus Barbie?

    • I have not read of any UNHRC condemning France for attacing Islamists in Maili, and killing HOW MANY?
      Islamists?

      And France has so much to condemn Israel for protecting itself from Savages in Gaza, Syria, Lebanon etc.

      Is Israel not allowed to protect itself and heer citizens from Islamic terror?

      Has the world ever seen or hear of Israel attacking innocent Muslims, suicide bombings, then throwing a party to celebrate the Heroic murder of Muslims?

      Who is the UNSC. This body of Arab, Russian, and communist sttaes should be disbanded.
      The UN HRC is a farce, and hopefully, Israel tell these murder supporters to screw them selves.

  • I would like to correct the ridiculous insinuations of your article: 1. Hezbollah doesn’t wait for intelligence information to be given to it… especially when its on Israel. Hezbollah has all the intelligence it needs far in advance of most parties involved 2. The Algeminder looks stupid trying to badly portray a leader and a hero like Hassan Nasrallah by labeling him as a “terror chief”. The only “terror chief” we have in the Middle East is Benjamin Natenyahu and his fellow occupiers of Arab land.

    • You are the tail end of a pig Sirry. You have the brain of a worm.

    • Mohammed Wazza Pedophile

      How’s the genocide going in Syria, Mr north end of a south bound pig?
      You know the one where more than 50,000 Syrians have been killed, moslems killing other moslems all in the name of allah the moon god & Mo the pedophile prophet.
      You know the war, where the UN just the other day announced that war crimes have been committed by BOTH sides, not just by Assad.So one brutal moslem government might be replaced by another brutal moslem government.
      I suppose Netanyahu is responsible too?
      How old was you child bride? 9 or 10?
      She your 1st or 2nd cousin?
      Did she have a chlitorectomy done?
      At least we don’t have to worry about Jews having inbred kids – the moslems have got that covered!

    As Berlin Prices Rise, Israelis Turn East for German Real-Estate Bargains

    JNS.org – Sonnenallee, a street in Berlin’s Neukölln district, looks like it comes straight out of an Arab city — so much so that it goes by the nickname “Gaza Strip.” Kebab and bakery shops are advertised in Arabic; men sit in men-only coffee shops; and bridal shop windows showcase glittery, not-so-stylish gowns. But take a random turn, and you’ll find a swath of bars, burger joints, and Indian restaurants where hip Berliners announce that they have arrived to urban coolness. […]

    A Theatrical Look at Diplomacy and the Oslo Accords (REVIEW)

    Is diplomacy worthwhile, even if the end result isn’t what we hoped for? That is the question, among many others, posed by the new play Oslo, by J.T. Rogers. Making its New York debut at Lincoln Center, the play examines the secret diplomatic process that led to the historic 1993 peace accords. The character of Shimon Peres makes an appearance onstage — and he, along with Yitzhak Rabin and Yasser Arafat, tower over the proceedings. But they mainly do so in absentia. Instead, […]

    Israeli Trailblazer Dean Kremer Brings Jewish Values to Nascent Pro Baseball Career

    JNS.org – Other than being part of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization, Sandy Koufax and Dean Kremer have something else in common: a respect for Jewish tradition. Koufax — who was recently ranked by ESPN as the best left-handed pitcher in Major League Baseball (MLB) history — decided not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because the game fell on Yom Kippur. “I would do the same,” Kremer said in an interview. Last month, the 20-year-old Kremer became […]

    To date or not to date? That is not the question for most Modern Orthodox singles in New York. The question is when will they find their future spouses, and when will their families stop nagging them about having babies? Inspired by the success of the Israeli show “Srugim,” Leah Gottfried, 25, decided she would create and star in her own show, “Soon By You.” “Dating is so serious already,” Gottfried said. “We wanted to take a lighter approach and laugh at the […]
