"(Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu, (Foreign Minister Avigdor) Lieberman and the rest of the Israelis are not interested in the path of negotiations with the Palestinians, and then with Damascus and Beirut," the Shiite group added. "They want to continue building in the settlements and deny the Palestinians their natural rights.
"They didn’t even agree to a three-month (settlement construction) moratorium because they do not want an agreement or the establishment of a Palestinian state," Nasrallah said.
According to the Hezbollah chief, Israel realizes that going to war on any one of its borders would be "an adventure," with "uncertain results." He said Israel's prefers to maintain the status quo, which, according to him, is problematic for the Jewish state because it "gives its enemies a chance to prepare for the next conflict in comfortable conditions."
Nasrallah said Israel is also concerned because "Hezbollah is growing stronger – as are Syria and Iran. The US is failing and is backing out of the region. The Israelis are losing strategic allies such as Turkey, and at the same time hatred for Israel among Muslim and Arab states is on the rise. All these are a cause of concern for Israel."
