Israel Foils Hezbollah Attack On An Israeli In Europe

Well, it's been almost a year since the assassination of Hezbollah's kingpin terrorist, Imad Mughniyeh, and apparently Nasrallah's goons don't want to let that killing they had elaborately planned to take out an Israeli in Europe as revenge, but the Israelis along with European intelligence agencies foiled the plot before it was carried out. This is just a testament of how the killing of Mughniyeh stung the boys at Hezbollah. Haha! Here's some of the sketchy details from the report at The Jerusalem Post:

Israeli intelligence agencies recently succeeded in thwarting a major Hizbullah terror attack against an Israeli target in Europe, Channel 2 reported Wednesday, citing security officials.

The attack was reportedly thwarted by Israel in conjunction with a European intelligence agency.
Hizbullah planned the attack to avenge the February 2008 assassination of arch-terrorist Imad Mughniyeh in Damascus, the report said.
The other thing this all points to is the reach of Hezbollah - I believe there was also a Hezbollah coordinated plan a number of months ago to hit an Israeli businessman in Africa and now, we see this target was in Europe. I wonder, how do the Europeans feel about Hezbollah death squads running around their countries?

Israel foils Hizbullah attack in Europe

Mughniyeh was the commander of Hizbullah military forces and was assassinated in a car bombing in Damascus. While Israel did not claim responsibility for the assassination, Hizbullah has declared its intention to avenge Mughniyeh's death by striking at Israel.
The assessment in the Israeli intelligence community is that Hizbullah is planning the attack in a way that will not leave behind its direct fingerprints. Hizbullah is believed to have extensive terror infrastructures in Africa and South America and was allegedly behind the bombings in 1992 and 1994 in Buenos Aires.
The intelligence community believes Hizbullah is deterred from launching an attack along the northern border because it is scared of Israel's potential response.
The two recent Katyusha rocket attacks into northern Israel are believed to have been carried out by a Palestinian terror group.

In conjunction my ass. Israel called and alerted the Euros, and the Euros had to take action. The Euoweanies are not proactive enough to do this on their own. Especially when it involves Jews. Our intelligence agencies should take lessons from the Israelis.

Absolutely spot on...the Israelis are gonna let the Europeans take some credit for this - I don't know exactly why, but they always do.
