Since when does Israel pay for the Iron dome? US taxpayers are paying for it, actually, you are paying for it, not the average Moshe.Raises costs to enemy. Operating iron dome isn’t free. Operating military personnel isn’t free. Fighter jets cost tens of thousands a dollar an hour to operate. Population centers go into shelters. Business stop. There is an economic cost even if there isn’t much of a physical damage cost.
Irrelevant civilians were dying in droves when Palestinians only had rocks and slingshots 20 years ago. So your point has no bearing.
Israel took action first. You want PIJ to just lie down? As if Israel cares about civilians.
Emotional response. Lebanon is going thru one of the worst economic crises in human history since the 1800’s. Resources are scarce. People are suffering and angry looking to blame a group for all their problems. Some are blaming HZ for the Beriut blast. Western countries are dangling aid with preconditions that limit HZ influence. HZ just lost seats in parliament.
And amist all this you want HZ to go to war? when Israel has gone on record saying they will level Beruit in response? Israel doesn’t care about war crimes. Israel knows if it kills enough of the civilian population they will turn against HZ. This even happened shortly after in 2006 when large parts of south Lebanon experienced damage. HZ quickly made people whole in order to limit any black lash.
Ordinary civilians don’t care about great power games or geopolitics they care about their day to day lives and their economic convictions. That’s what some of you fail to understand. The average human is dumb and selfish and can’t look two steps ahead in his own life let alone in his country’s future.
So HZ cannot afford a war right now because unlike in 2006, it doesn’t have the support to start such a engagement (even tho in 2006 wasn’t supposed to be a war it was miscalculations on both sides)
And the Israeli society is military in its nature, most of them are military service aged personnel. What cost??
You are making pathetic excuses just to defend what exactly?
Out of touch with the reality. Hezbollah and its image? Are you kidding?
Did they ask permission or ask the people their opinion when they went to war in Syria?
Did they ask any Lebanese what they would think if they blew up a jewish target in Argentina?
You still did not answer me. What is the reason behind sending Paletinians on a suicide mission against Israelis? Average Cohen or Moshe does not give a shit if he has to ''run'' to the shelter, he will lose a few calories in the process and thank the Palestinians too. And Iron dome is getting replaced for free by the US. Average Israeli does not pay for it at all.
What is the reason for Islamic Jihad to provoke Israel and give a excuse to them to bomb the crap out of the Gaza strip population?
Same crap every year : fire a few rockets at Israel >> gets intercepted > IAF kills tens of Palestinians in return.
Your axis of resistance nonsense is on the same level as some cleric worshippers here.
