JEM, the media company of Chabad, distributed statements by the Lubavitcher Rebbe made at the time of the first Lebanon war.

The Rebbe then spoke about the duty of the leaders in Israel to stand firm in the face of terrorist attacks, to strike the enemy with strength and not to show weakness.

"The Rebbe also rejected the claims heard about international pressure," JEM explains. "The Rebbe stated that it is necessary to stand guard and insist on the rights of the Israelites in the Holy Land, when the people of Israel asserted the appropriate force, then the nations of the world will also respect Israel's position."
