Nasrallah questions Shoah

Hezbollah leader says victory over Israel should be taught in same way Jewish State imparts memory of Holocaust, 'whether it happened or not'; Israelis fear Hezbollah, Nasrallah adds in televised address

Another Shoah-denier? Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah urged followers Friday to impart the legacy of Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon similarly to "what Israel does with the Holocaust, whether it indeed happened or not."


The Hezbollah leader delivered his televised speech on the occasion of inaugurating a museum commemorating "the victory of the resistance over Israel" in a south Lebanon village. The new museum is modest compared to the "sacrifice and legendary victories," Nasrallah added.


Nasrallah also addressed the municipal elections in Lebanon this coming Sunday, which will coincide with a major IDF drill that will prompt Israelis nationwide to head to bomb shelters.


"On Sunday we'll see quite a show on both sides of the border – in south Lebanon we'll hold an elections festival, while on the Israeli side millions will head to bomb shelters and follow an emergency plan because of their fear of the resistance," he said.


On Tuesday, Nasrallah is expected to deliver a special address to mark 10 years to the IDF withdrawal from southern Lebanon.


In his speech Friday, Nasrallah presented an unanswered question ahead of his next address: "Why are we seeing all those visits by the Americans, Europeans, and Arabs to Lebanon?" The Hezbollah leader said he will provide an answer for the question in his Tuesday speech.
