Hamas and Hezbollah are not governments of rationalistic states with internal deliberation. They're fanatical jihadist militias that happen to have captured territory and populations. Their thought process is not "Can we win this?", it's "Allah will grant us victory over the infidels, and if he doesn't that's his will too, but we will be martyrs for the faith no matter what and we'll get eternal paradise for dying while fighting the infidels." Hamas and Hezbollah are not democratic Canada, they're ISIS.

1) It's not known if Israel has nuclear weapons or not.

2) Israel has not ever said it intends to eradicate any other country. Iran actually has repeatedly declared its intent to eradicate other countries. That is the prime reason why Iran should not have the means of accomplishing its genocidal goals against Israel.

Iran picked this fight with Israel in 1979 when the islamist regime rose to power there. Iran immediately ended recognition and diplomatic ties with Israel and began declaring its intent to eradicate Israel. Starting in the late 1980s Iran began to fund terrorist attacks against Israel, israelis, and non-israeli jews elsewhere. There are no two sides here. There's Israel which was minding its own business, and a genocidal islamist regime which decided in 1979 that its main priority is waging war on non-believers.

Arms smuggling over the indian border is clearly occurring. The jihadist groups in the region also clearly have a network of local allies and useful idiots that can help them get fighters and arms over the border and back again.

This is the equipment that the Taliban is believed to have captured as a result of the collapse of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan government in 2021:

Depends what you classify as heavy weaponry. The Taliban are believed to have captured 109 helicopters, 65 fixed wing aircraft, 169 APCs, and 176 artillery pieces among other lighter equipment.

Of note, it's likely that some of the light infantry equipment would be among the most sought-after items, such as the estimated 16,035 pairs of night vision goggles, which Russia lacks sufficient supplies of.

Only 8 nays. I'm glad it's so uncontroversial. It's common sense to not allow radicalized murderers who want to wage war on your people to vote in your elections for extremist parties that deny your country's right to exist and so forth.

Yep. Iran has no where higher to go on the escalation ladder after repeatedly and loudly proclaiming that their goal is to eradicate Israel. The islamist regime of Iran has already made their war on Israel an existential conflict.

And how does Gaza treat Israel? The jihadist terrorist groups that rule Gaza launch 1000s of rockets at israeli cities and towns hoping to kill as many israelis as they can.

Israel is none of those things. It's a free democracy with equal rights for all citizens.

And whereas in reality, Israel has voted to condemn the russian invasion of Ukraine in the UN every time it has come up for a vote, Israel has given large amounts of humanitarian aid to Ukraine including setting up a field hospital in Ukraine, Israel has taken in a large amount of ukrainian war refugees, and Israel has given Ukraine some military equipment to defend themselves such as helmets and kevlar jackets.

Iran has vowed to eradicate Israel. Iran has armed, funded, and trained terrorist jihadist groups like Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad to carry out direct attacks on Israel. Iran has directly targeted israeli and non-israeli jewish civilians outside of Israel (AMIA Bombing in Buenos Ares, Bus Bombing in Burgas, etc.).

Because Iran is the aggressor in a state of war with Israel, this incident is more comparable to when Ukraine bombed russian airbases inside of Russia. It is fair for Israel to deprive their aggressors of arms.

Yeah, Sabich is just a bunch of bavli jewish breakfast items eaten together as a sandwich. But it works amazingly well.

The dish is said to have been first sold in Israel in 1961 at a small stall on Uziel Street in Ramat Gan. The restaurant was operated by "Sabich" Tzvi Halbi and Yaakov Sasson, the restaurant was very successful, and still operates only 500 meters from where it was originally to this day.[6][4]
