Hezbollah claims to have turned down billions to disarm

From The Daily Star (Lebanon):

Hezbollah has rejected billions of dollars offered to the party in exchange for the surrender of its arsenal, deputy secretary-general Naim Qassem said Monday.

"Billions of dollars have been offered to us to rebuild the deprived south Lebanon and in return to surrender our arms and stop the work of the resistance,"Qassem said during a ceremony for the eighth edition of his book “Hezbollah.”

"But we told them we're not in need [of their money] and the resistance will go on regardless of the consequences,” he added.
I'm sure that the Lebanese people are thrilled.

The story is probably bogus anyway, but it shows that Hezbollah doesn't care about the Lebanese people as much as the destruction of Israel.
