Hezbollah's Nasrallah 'Alive and Threatening'Topics: Middle East News and Perspectives
After more than a week of punishing Israeli aerial and artillery strikes, Hizb'allah terrorist chief Hassan Nasrallah told Al Jazeera that his group is easily absorbing all that Israel has thrown at it, and continues to successfully control the direction of the current fighting.
... (Nasrallah) denied Israeli reports that some 50 percent of Hizb'allah's fighting capabilities have been eliminated by the IDF, and said his group remains as strong as ever and is ready to unleash more "surprises."Perhaps Nasrallah might consider exerting a little more control, since it appears that the Israelis are literally bringing his and the rest of Hezbollah's houses down all around them.
.. told Al Jazeera that no amount of force in the world will convince Hizb'allah to unconditionally release the the kidnapped Israeli soldiers.
... insisted the battle Hizb'allah is waging against Israel is on behalf of the entire Arab world, and said the outcome will have lasting consequences for all his Muslim brethren.
... With its leadership and fighting capabilities intact, Nasrallah suggested it is Hizb'allah that is controlling the direction of this war.
As for the complaints from the international community over Israel's targeting of civilian infrastructure, if Hezbollah didn't place their rockets in civilian structures, Israel wouldn't be striking the civilian infrastructures. Hezbollah knows that, which is why they use civilians as human shields in order to cry foul when civilians are killed and their homes destoyed. To the terrorists, propaganda is more important than Muslim lives. Interesting that they say nothing about the Muslims killing the hell out of Muslims in Iraq.
