A delegation representing the Lebanese Shia Amal political party and terror group Hezbollah visited Hamas offices in Lebanon this week and resolved to work together to fight Israel, Hezbollah affiliated Al-Manar reported on Monday.

The delegates, which included Hezbollah’s press chief Sadreddine Dawood, and chief of refugee affairs Abu Wael Zalzali, met with Jihad Taha, a member of the political leadership of Hamas in the El-Buss refugee camp north of Tyre on the southern Lebanese coast.

The visit coincided with the Muslim Eid al-Fitr festival, and was intended to “stress the deep ties that bind the Lebanese and Palestinian peoples,” Al-Manar said.

Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov Defies Trump Over Iran’s Middle East Role

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov directly challenged US President Donald Trump's tough stance on Iran this week during a briefing...

Those assembled at the meeting expressed hopes that “the coming days will carry with them goodness and promises of victory against all of the enemies of [the Muslim community], chief among them the Israeli enemy…”

In a statement issued following the gathering, the assembled delegation added, “what is required today is denying this enemy, which is constantly trying to sneak up on all of us, with any opportunity, and to unite behind the project of resistance and confrontation.”

Confronting Israel is best achieved through “internal stability, especially on the Lebanese and Palestinian level,” they said.

    Just suppose Hamas, Hezbollah and Israel’s other enemies were to unite successfully and somehow eradicate Israel, what then? Would this bring peace, prosperity and goodwill to the Middle East, or would it simply open up old Shia/Sunni divides to further confrontation and extend ISIL influence, and thus Iran’s control, even more deeply.

    What, also, will be the fate of Jews who don’t live in Israel. Will this ‘success’ be seen as an opportunity to rid the world of them, much as Henry II did with Thomas A Beckett when saying ‘who will rid me of this trouble priest’?

    It may well be many would be only too delighted to see the end of the Jewish state and the Jews. What then? How will succeeding generations understand where their religion comes from, whether Christianity or Islam. What about the creativity, industry, energy and contribution to the world made by the Jews, how will that be replaced.

    As the Chinese say ‘be careful what you wish for’.
