Hezbollah find someone they hate more than Israelis

Hassan Nasrallah, the secretary general of a group that has been fighting Israel for decades, declared on Tuesday that “Wahhabism is more evil than Israel,” Lebanon’s Al Akhbar newspaper reported.

Wahhabism is the ultra-fundamentalist strain of Sunni Islam that Saudi Arabia’s government promotes and that strongly influences the ideology of Sunni jihadist groups like al-Qaeda and ISIS.

Bear in mind, this is coming from the same man who has described Israel as a cancerous entity and the root of all the crises and wars and pledged that Israel’s destiny is manifested in our motto: ‘Death to Israel.’

 It’s also coming from a man at the helm of a group that has engaged in numerous conflictswith Israel, including a horrifically bloody all-out war in 2006 that resulted in the deaths of around 1,300 Lebanese, mostly civilians, and 165 Israelis, 121 of whom were soldiers.
