A day after meeting with a key Iranian adviser to Iran;'s Ayatollah Khamanei, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah gave a speech Friday where he characterized Hezbollah's fighting in Syria as just another way to show "resistance" to Israel.
Responding to biting criticism within Lebanon about how Hezbollah has dragged that country into the Syrian civil war, Nasrallah tried to spin it as "resistance" against the "US-Israel axis."
Creating his own history, Nasrallah claimed that Israel and the US have targeted Syrian "resistance" groups which have been an "incubator of support" for Palestinians, and Hezbollah is merely defending Syria against this aggression.
He also decried Saudi Arabia's reported ties to Israel, especially recent meetings between the two sides such as the debate between Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal and retired IDF general Yaakov Amidror in Washington last Thursday night.
Nasrallah railed against the transfer of the two islands of Tiran and Sanafir from Egypt to Saudi Arabia will open a door for declared coordination between Saudi Arabia and Israel.
He also proved yet again that he is an Iranian puppet rather than a Lebanese leader by parroting Iranian claims on Yemen, which have nothing to do with the country he resides in that he is helping to destroy.
Nasrallah is clearly feeling the pressure from Saudi Arabia declaring Hezbollah a terrorist group.
On Thursday, Nasrallah met with Ali Akbar Velayati, foreign affairs' adviser to Iran's Supreme Leader, along with the Iranian ambassador to Lebanon, in his secret underground hideout.
As he laid a wreath at the grave of Hezbollah commander Imad Mughniyeh, Velayati said, "God willing, and through the blood of martyrs, the Islamic resistance will carry on with its resistance against the Zionist entity whether in the region or the entire world."
This is a thinly veiled call for terrorist attacks worldwide against Israeli and Jewish targets - attacks of the type that Hezbollah has already enthusiastically performed.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
