"If you want to know the value of the latest exchange—listen to what Olmert said regarding (paying) 'a high price' for what happened," Qasim said in his speech, which marked a week since the latest prisoner/body exchange with Israel.
In his speech, the deputy also discussed Lebanese internal politics and Hizbullah's weapons arsenal.
"The problem in Lebanon is Israel and its supporters and not the 'resistance.' The 'resistance' is defensive and it is a response to Israeli aggression and thus he who wants to take care of this must solve the problem by starting with the Israeli threat and Israeli aggressiveness and not with the organization's weapons," the leader said.
"We are not ashamed and we will not hide the strength of our organization. We will always remain on the front line and we will stand against aggression," the sheikh said.
