    If an Israeli general was killed by Hezbollah, it may prove Bibi’s biggest blunder. After-all this uptick in action against Lebanon by Israel was allegedly foisted by him for selfish political reasons. If so, it has backfired with a vengeance. Hence the deception all is now well. Last week’s warning by a senior IDF officer that as much as a scratch on an IDF soldier would soundly redound on Hezbollah. A dead general, on the other hand, would unleash the dogs of war, or so one might imagine from his rhetoric. Yet, so far, nothing. It recalls another (almost) ill-fated incident related to Bibi’s late brother and hero of Israel – Loni Netanyahu. (Cont’d)

      From Haaretz, May 27, 2018.

      Bibi’s brother Yoni who was killed at Entebbe was strongly criticized for jeopardizing that famous raid. From a review of a movie ‘Seven Days in Entebbe’ Haaretz, May 27, 2018:

      “Netanyahu’s key mistake — firing at a Ugandan soldier — nearly led to disaster.” David* says Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s brother, who was killed in the operation, opened fire against the orders of Moshe “Muki” Betzer, the commander of the raiding force. “We don’t know and we’ll never know what led him to make that decision, …”

      Bibi’s decisions on the Lebanon front to bolster his political standing may actually have been precipitous, ill-conceived and ill-timed. A case of foisting himself with his own petard.
