Title: Does History repeat itself

Does History repeat itself?
Israel Updates series 9/13/2006
Does History repeat itself?
Analyzing the consequences of the Lebanon Crisis
in the light of Yom Kippur War
Presented by Shlomo Weinish, Community Shaliach
On the morning of July 12th, under heavy fire
and bombing of the whole northern border,
Hezbollah Terrorists attacked 2 Hammer
jeeps- killing 3 soldiers and 2 others
were abducted. Shortly after, an Israeli Tank
went into the Lebanese territory and was caught
in a roadside charge trap which killed all 4
crow members. Another soldier was killed on the
rescue attempts.
At noon of October 6th, 1973 the Egyptian
Syrian Armies started a coordinated attack on
Both events came as a surprise, But
A month before the attack (73), movement of
Egyptian Syrian forces towards the Israeli
Border was observed by Israeli look-outs. But,
according to Israeli Army intelligence's
evaluation, the possibility of an attack was very
low since both armies were not prepared to cope
with the Israeli Army.
The last abduction attempt of an Israeli soldier
by Hezbollah occurred last November. Under a
heavy bombing of northern Israel, Hezbollah
terrorists tried to abduct a paratrooper's
soldier near the village Ragar. This event was
not the first abduction attempt. The previous
attempt took place on October 2000, when 3
soldiers were abducted.
The evaluation was wrong and was established on
the exaggerated and overestimated strength of
the Israeli Army based on the Six Days War- 6
years before.
The abduction took place 6 years after the
Israeli armys withdrawal from Lebanon
