The Israeli President, Reuven Rivlin, said that “the upcoming war in the region will be totally different from any other war, in terms of the enemy we might fight and the mission that we are might face in such a battle”.

“This exercise reflects the real image of the citizens of the State of Israel, the extent to which the army is ready and equipped to confront any hostile aggression. That all the forces be ready is the most important thing,” he said during his participation in a military exercise of the Israeli army in the northern region.

Rivlin listened to a detailed explanation of this exercise from the deputy Chief of Staff of the Israeli army, Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi, according to the Israeli Broadcasting Corporation, Kan.

    Goddamned Europeans have turned the region into a war zone ever since they arrived.

      The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, why should we expect anything different here? If you have not seen it, Helen Occupation 101 is worth a look, check out their website – in fact everyone should.

    Interesting, “the extent to which the army is ready and equipped to confront any hostile aggression” is defined, by this person, as ‘aggression’. Could someone explain to him that fighting back against occupation is ‘self defence’, not ‘aggression’?

  • Please…no more war.
