Hezbollah leader Nasrallah came out of his underground hideout to threaten Israel. Despite his ludicrous claims, Israel must remain vigilant.
Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah, who has been in hiding ever since the Second Lebanon War, made a rare appearance in Beirut on Tuesday in which he threatened Israel and claimed that the terror group’s rockets can hit anywhere in Israel. Ben-Gurion Airport and Israel’s seaports will be targeted during an eventual attack on Israel, he said.
He further claimed that Israel fears a possible war with Hezbollah. “Israelis are saying in the media that they would have to close down Ben-Gurion Airport and the Haifa port and yes, that’s true,” Lebanon’s Daily Star quoted Nasrallah as saying. “You should close all of your airports and your ports because there is no place in the land of ‘occupied Palestine’ that the resistance’s rockets cannot reach.”
He dismissed the notion that Hezbollah was so overwhelmed with fighting in the Syrian civil war and that it was unable to continue its fight against Israel.
“They [Israel] know that going to war with the resistance [i.e. Hezbollah] will be very costly because we are more determined, stronger, more experienced…and we are capable of achieving such accomplishments,” he stated.
Hezbollah’s War for Jerusalem
Nasrallah vowed to fight for Jerusalem, alleging that Israel had been taking advantage of the turmoil in the Muslim world to advance their plans on the Temple Mount.
“The Zionists want to take advantage of the situation in the Muslim world to realize their dream,” he said. “Harm to the al-Aqsa Mosque and Jerusalem is the responsibility of all the Muslims in the world. We will not allow the Zionists to Judaize Jerusalem and defile it. That would be a disgrace. ”
Regarding the strife tearing the Middle East apart, Nasrallah maintained that the war were not sectarian nor religious. “The West is trying to depict a picture of internal conflict in the region, especially between Sunnis and Shiites. That’s a big mistake. He cited the situation in Egypt, in which the Sunnis are fighting each other, to prove his point.
Hezbollah is a Shiite terror group that is heavily supported and supplied by Iran, serving as its proxy on Israel’s northern border. Iran has sworn to wipe Israel off the map and is using Hezbollah to try and reach that goal.
