Hizballah unveils powerful Russian-made anti-ship missiles as Iran proxies step up attacks on Israel and US

Iran’s proxy war against Israel and the U.S. is escalating. Iran’s most powerful proxy, Hizballah, has now warned of a regional war if Israel continues its action in Gaza, and has unveiled “powerful Russian anti-ship missiles” as a “threat against U.S. warships.” This week, despite American warnings not to escalate, Hizballah fired 20 rockets into Israel, “setting off sirens in the Upper Galilee and the Golan Heights.” Hizballah is calling Iran’s proxies the “Axis of Resistance.

Meanwhile, at least 45 U.S. service members have reportedly been injured in attacks from Iran proxies, nineteen of them with traumatic brain injury. To Iran and its proxies, the exchange of fire with America and Israel is nothing less than jihad, while the West downplays the critical importance of this fact.

According to the doctrine of Mahdism, part of preparing for the reappearance of the 12th Imam is removing all obstacles and barriers to his return. Against this backdrop, Iran’s hardline clergy affiliated with the IRGC claim religious hadiths state that the “Jewish state will be destroyed before Mahdi’s arrival.” According to these accounts, which are legitimized through religious scripture, “Sh’ia Muslims will be on the side of the war against Jews” prior to the reappearance of Mahdi. As such, the collapse of
“Israeli regime and Zionist Jews” at the behest of “Iran and the Resistance Axis” will take place “prior to the emergence of Mahdi.”

The Mahdi is the Shias’ 12th Imam, aka the Hidden Imam.

Only a no-nonsense maneuver of deterrence could possibly keep Iran at bay. America’s longtime policy of appeasement under Obama and Biden is clearly ineffective.

“Hezbollah’s anti-ship missiles bolster its threat to US navy,” by Laila Bassam and Tom Perry, Reuters, November 8, 2023:

BEIRUT, Nov 8 (Reuters) – Powerful Russian anti-ship missiles acquired by Hezbollah give it the means to deliver on its leader’s veiled threat against U.S. warships and underline the grave risks of any regional war, sources familiar with the group’s arsenal say.

Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned Washington last week his group had something in store for the U.S. vessels deployed to the region since war erupted last month between the Palestinian group Hamas and Israel, shaking the wider Middle East.

Two sources in Lebanon familiar with the Iran-backed group’s arsenal say he was referring to Hezbollah’s greatly enhanced anti-ship missile capabilities, including the Russian-made Yakhont missile with a range of 300 km (186 miles).

Reports by media and analysts have for years indicated that Hezbollah acquired Yakhont missiles in Syria after deploying there more than a decade ago to help President Bashar al-Assad fight a civil war….

Washington says its Mediterranean naval deployment – comprising two aircraft carriers and their supporting ships – aims to prevent the conflict from spreading by deterring Iran, which backs groups including Hamas, Hezbollah, and Palestinian Islamic Jihad….

Nasrallah said in a speech on Friday that the U.S. warships in the Mediterranean “do not scare us, and will not scare us”.

“We have prepared for the fleets with which you threaten us,” he said….

US warship intercepts missiles/drones launched by Iran-backed Houthis toward Israel

Iran is becoming increasingly agitated over the Israel war on Gaza and has now apparently decided to enter the war via its proxies. The regime is so desperate that it “strong-armed the Tehran Jewish community into condemning Israel on its Telegram channel for its efforts to defeat Iran’s ally, Hamas.”

Iran has been relentlessly bashing and threatening Israel since the launch of Israel’s Operation Swords of Iron. According to another report from Iran International:

The head of the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting, Peyman Jebelli, conveyed a message that they are preparing to broadcast news of Israel’s disappearance from the scene. He stated, “Israel is digging its own grave and won’t last beyond 2040.” His rhetoric echoes Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s previous comments from 2015.

Iran is the funding source behind Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Hizballah, as well as other proxies in Syria and militias in Iraq. Iranian proxies are operational far beyond the Middle East. The world’s chief Shia nation is now so emboldened that its Syrian proxies are targeting American bases with drones as tensions in Gaza escalate. Hizballah, meanwhile, fired anti-tank missiles at IDF forces near Lebanon’s border as Lebanon prepares to evacuate.

Despite the West’s longtime appeasement of Iran, the Iranian regime has made no secret of its ambitions, nor of its own violation of the disastrous 2015 nuclear deal. Iran never had any intention of scaling back its uranium enrichment, which is clearly directed toward making a nuclear bomb. As the Israel war on Gaza escalates, it is important also to recall that Shia Iran ascribes to a doomsday theology, which has persistently been ignored by the mainstream media, despite its significance.

The Hidden – or Twelfth – Imam plays a dominant role in one specific form of Shi’ite Islamic theology, called “Twelverism,” which happens to be the primary belief system of Iran’s leadership. There is a messianic belief that at the end of days, the Hidden Imam will appear in the midst of a violent apocalyptic scenario played out on a battleground stained with infidels’ blood.

Western leaders must wake up if it isn’t already too late.

“US Navy Warship Intercepts Missiles, Drones By Iran-Backed Houthis,” Iran International, October 19, 2023:

A US Navy warship on Thursday intercepted three cruise missiles and several drones launched by the Iran-backed Houthi militants from Yemen.

While Washington is on heightened alert for activity by Iran-backed groups as regional tensions soar during the Israel-Hamas war, the Pentagon said that the projectiles were potentially fired toward Israel.

The Pentagon said the destroyer USS Carney was operating in the northern Red Sea on Thursday when it brought down the projectiles and there were no injuries.

“We cannot say for certain what these missiles and drones were targeting, but they were launched from Yemen heading north along the Red Sea, potentially towards targets in Israel,” Pentagon spokesman Brigadier General Patrick Ryder told reporters.

Earlier in the day, US forces in Syria also brought down two hostile drones, leading to some minor injuries. The attack took place on Wednesday against US forces at Al-Tanf base, near Syria’s borders with Iraq and Jordan. Unnamed US officials did not say who was responsible for the attack, but Iranian backed militia groups have targeted the bases multiple times in the past.
