German Intelligence Officer Meets With Hezbollah Leader—Again

German intelligence officer Ole Diehl traveled to Beirut, Lebanon, to visit with Hezbollah’s second-in-command on Saturday evening, the Al-Akhbar newspaper reported. This is the second time the two leaders have met since Oct. 7, 2023.

“The session’s atmosphere was positive,” the newspaper reported.

  • The meeting focused on how to avoid a full-scale war between Hezbollah and Israel.
  • Germany made clear it backs Israel’s goal to return the 60,000 displaced northern Israeli citizens, even if it means war with Hezbollah.
  • Hezbollah second-in-command Sheikh Naim Qassem said the only hope of halting attacks on Israel’s northern region is if a ceasefire is reached in Gaza.
  • Qassem “urged Germany to put pressure on Israel to stop its aggression,” according to Al-Akhbar.

It was only last week that Cardinal Pietro Parolin also visited Lebanon.

Crucial point: Lebanon continues to catch the eyes of both the Catholic Church and Germany. This recent meeting supports the prophesied Psalm 83 alliance, which says Lebanon will ally with a German-led, Catholic-influenced Europe.
