This is a report just out from Exodus Times of today, Thursday April 4, 2008. We are talking once more of gas in the context of the killing of Jews. The links with the Nazi Holocaust, with the founder of the Palestinian Arab movement by main Palestinian Arab and Holocaust Nazi organizer Hajj Amin el Husseini is obvious. In the eyes of these Arab Fascists, like Hamas, Fatah and Hezbullah, the Holocaust did not end. Meanwhile the main issue facing humanity, not just Jews, the threat of Iranian Fascist Mullahs, to bomb Israel with Nuclear, remains the main existentialist question above all others facing Israel.

Israel’s security cabinet convened Wednesday, April 2, to examine the homeland’s preparedness for war. It decided to redistribute the bio/chemical warfare masks a few months after they were called in.
DEBKAfile’s military sources disclose intelligence data indicating the possibility that Syria may transfer to Hizballah chemical or biological warheads known to have been developed for its war arsenal.
A few hours earlier, the London-based al Quds al-Arabi quoted Damascus officials as claiming that Israel is preparing a big attack on Syria and Hizballah. Syria was said to have ordered a partial call-up of its military reserves.
The paper also reported that Hizballah had decided to postpone for the moment its plan to wreak its revenge on Israel for allegedly killing Imad Mughniyeh last month, so as not to provide Israel with a pretext for going to war against Syria and itself.
DEBKAfile reports too that last week, Damascus deployed two armored brigades on the Beirut-Damascus highway under the command of President Bashar Assad’s young brother Maher Assad, chief of the presidential guard. They were posted there to block the road in case Israeli armored columns attempted to reach Damascus through Lebanon.
IDF sources report Iran has sent Syria state of the art equipment for surveillance and eavesdropping on Israeli military command centers and bases.
Tuesday night, Israel’s home defense command scheduled April 6-10 a nationwide exercise to improve the home front’s readiness for emergencies. Warning sirens will be tested on April 8.
That day, too, defense minister Ehud Barak’s toured Israel’s northern border and reported “a great deal of activity on the other side.” He added:”…we are learning the lessons of the last war, Israel is the strongest country in the region and I would not advise anyone on the other side to test us.”
In their briefing to the Knesset foreign affairs and security committee Tuesday morning, intelligence officers confirmed intense Hizballah activity, much of it in South Lebanon by operatives in civilian disguise. The officers referred to the Lebanese Shiite terror group’s rearmament with more powerful and longer-range rockets.
On March 22, DEBKAfile first revealed that Hizballah had more trebled its pre-war rocket arsenal to 40,000.
“Some of the 40,000 rockets of Syrian and Iranian manufacture can hit Israeli targets as far south as Beersheba, 350 km. away. Not only has Tel Aviv come within range, but Hizballah and the Palestinian Hamas in Gaza can between them now cover most of Israel up to its southernmost tip at Eilat. The possibility is now under consideration that these rockets may be armed with Syrian non-conventional warheads.
Damascus has also shipped to Hizballah quantities of anti-air weapons, including shoulder-borne rockets and scores of Russian-made anti-aircraft ZSU-100 automatic 14.4 mm caliber cannon, which are most effective against low-flying aircraft, helicopters and drones.

I draw attention to the IDF officers briefing to the Knesset a few paragraphs up. We on 4international salute these true professionals and patriots of the revolutionary and progressive IDF. Now this briefing of the IDF to the highest body in the land of Israel holds huge lessons:
1. The supply of these powerful rockets and weapons to Fascist, Jew hating and Jew murdering Hizbullah, has went on under the noses (Should we say under the direct supervision) of NATO and UN troops from countries such as Ireland and Spain. These so-called “peace keepers” were sent in at the request of Olmert and what a traitor he and Livni are shown to be. Sent also at the INSISTENCE of the US and EU, especially of Labourist Blair and of Imperialist warmongerers in the US of Cheney, Bush and Rice.
2. The conclusion from this is that the lessons of NATO’s destruction of Yugoslavia must be learned by our Jewish friends and that no calls should ever be made for NATO troops to be used in any context in anything to do with Israel.
3. We make this appeal especially to our Jewish friends on the Canadian website Israpundit to: this moment stop their support of arch Imperialist and main NATO man in the US establishment, John McCain, who is running for the Presidency. Obama is bad, Clinton is bad, Bush has been bad, McCain would be very bad indeed for Jews.
We on 4international are allied with all Jews in a great United Front to defend Israel. The report about gas masks is a severe warning to us all.
There must be a huge debate and discussion opened up now inside the workers and in the Jewish movement WITHOUT CENSORSHIP OF ANY KIND as to what is the way forward.
In our unity with all Jews and Serbs we remain and will remain independent TROTSKYISTS and we fight for our own independent socialist revolutionary answer to the present crisis facing humanity. Please join us by writing to me on
