Nasrallah depressed, researchers say

Lebanese terror group leader’s speeches, TV appearances lack usual zeal and charisma, behavioral researchers say, adding that criticism directed toward Nasrallah from Syria, Lebanon may be cause of his misery

Hizbullah leader Hassan Nasrallah is suffering from some form of depression, Israeli behavioral researchers said.


The experts, who examined Nasrallah’s patterns of behavior during recent public appearances and compared it to his conduct in the past, said if their assertion was correct it would be difficult to predict the Hizbullah chief’s actions in the future.


According to the researchers, Nasrallah’s current speeches and TV appearances lack the usual zeal and charisma.


The researchers said Nasrallah’s depression may be the result of criticism directed at him from Lebanon and Syria.


Israeli security establishment officials refused to comment on the researchers’ conclusion, but did say that Nasrallah may attack Israel for the very reason that he feels threatened and unsure of himself.


Other officials, on the other hand, said these may be the first signs of decline in Hizbullah’s status.
