March 1, 2012 Avi publishes an article Is war in the Middle east Inevitable? in which he discusses the impact of the events in Syria on the radical militant Axis of Resistance.
“…The Axis of Resistance is one of Iran’s major assets.
This massive military capability is a major card the Iranian regime plays when it comes to its nuclear military program.
In its talks with the West and the International Community, the regime makes the following crystal clear: if its’ vital interests are jeopardized, Iran has the ability to create an immediate, massive eruption in the region by ordering Hezbollah and Hamas to use their arsenals to attack Israel.
What is critical for the West to understand is that there are signs in the Arab world today that indicate that Hezbollah and Hamas, Iran’s main proxies in the war against Israel, just might not jump so fast to comply with such an order. This possibility creates a unique window of opportunity.”
March 8, 2012 senior Hamas leaders declare that Hamas will take no part in a war between Israel and Iran.
