"I confidently trust that the American people will prove themselves ... too wise not to detect the false pride or the dangerous ambitions or the selfish schemes which so often hide themselves under that deceptive cry of mock patriotism: 'Our country, right or wrong!' They will not fail to recognize that our dignity, our free institutions and the peace and welfare of this and coming generations of Americans will be secure only as we cling to the watchword of true patriotism: 'Our country - when right to be kept right; when wrong to be put right.'" -- Carl Schurz

Israel's home front is preparing for a possible escalation in its conflict with Lebanon's militant group Hezbollah, fearing attacks on the power grid and the deployment of devastating "Volcano" (Iranian-made Burkan) missiles.

According to Nayef Zidani, a reporter with The New Arab's Arabic service Al-Araby Al-Jadeed, Hezbollah could target Israel's electricity infrastructure in an upcoming war, causing prolonged outages and impacting hospitals.

Israel has held unpublicised emergency meetings recently to survey contingency plans that include backup generators, according to the report, particularly in communities near the border with Lebanon.

Discussions in Israeli government meetings tackled evacuation plans for respirator-dependent patients and communication strategies if internet and phone networks fail, including deploying SMS messaging over internet-based alerts.

Israel has yet to make these concerns public, according to the reporter, fearing causing panic and tipping off Hezbollah.

Claire's Observations:  Even if Hezbollah doesn't know this, their Iranian sponsors do. Iranian leadership is many things; stupid is not one of them.
