Judd Hashisho, an eight-year-old Lebanese boy from Sidon, has recently risen to stardom in Lebanon, becoming a favorite among Hezbollah-affiliated media outlets.
Hashisho reportedly delivered a note to Hezbollah Secretary-General Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, in which he enclosed money he has been saving since last year's anniversary of the IDF's retreat from south Lebanon.

According to Lebanese news agencies, Hashisho donated the money to help Hezbollah purchase a new drone, resembling the Iranian drone that was launched at Israel last month.
In his letter, the boy identified himself as a supporter of the Popular Democratic Party in Sidon, adding "I want to give this money to the resistance so it can buy weapons to fight Israel the b**ch.
"When I grow up, I will be a communist resistance warrior with Hezbollah, fighting the United States and Israel, I will tear them to pieces and drive them out of Lebanon, the Golan and Palestine, which I love very dearly."

Lebanese Al-Manar television station aired a special item about the boy. According to the report, the boy handed his letter and a plastic box containing the money to the person in charge of the Hezbollah memorial site in south Lebanon.

A few days later, his father was informed that his son would be given the original letter back, along with Nasrallah's response and signature.
Nasrallah's response read: "My dear Judd. I thank you for your love of the resistance and Hezbollah and for your contribution. I wish for the great Allah to help you thrive so that you grow to be a resistance fighter against the occupation and the protector of justice, if Allah so wishes. With love and respect."
The framed letter has already been reverently placed in the boy's family living room, alongside a photo of the Al-Aqsa Mosque captioned "Palestine."
In Hashisho's room, the Al-Manar reporter found a piece of paper, on which the boy wrote that he would avenge the death of Hezbollah senior officer Imad Mughniyeh, who was assassinated in Damascus in 2008.
