Iran to meet Nasrallah – but who knows?

October 14, 2010

Amidst renewed although what seems to be fading peace talks between Israel and Palestinian territories, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad decided it would be a good idea to visit South Lebanon and Bint Jbeil. What is intersting, is that out of 4 different stories, here, CNN, FOX News and MSNBC. Only here has this very telling line;

During his visit, Ahmadinejad was to meet top Lebanese officials as well as with Hassan Nasrallah, leader of the Iranian- and Syrian-backed Hezbollah militia which largely controls the southern border region with Israel and is also sworn to the Jewish state’s destruction.

We would figure that Lebanese officials would be met with by Ahmadinejad during this visit, however Hassan Nasrallah? The leader of Hezbollah? Why is it that 3 out of 4 major news outlets, including FOX News did not even mention that. Why is that?

Middle East
According to Council of Foreign Relations Hassan Nasrallah profile, we can determine that he is indeed in Lebanon and as recent as July 2010 has met Khaled Meshaal leader of HAMAS. And as recently as 2006 during the Israel-Hezbollah war Israeli warplanes bombed Nasrallahs home.

While Hezbollah and Palestinian group Hamas do not have organizational ties, Nasrallah has met with Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal several times, most recently in July 2010 when Meshaal traveled to Lebanon to discuss “regional developments” (Al-Manar) with Nasrallah. It has also been reported that Hezbollah gives military training, as well as financial and moral backing, to Hamas and has acted as a role model (PDF) for the group.

Fascinating, so we can easily determine that Ahmadinejad is visiting a terrorist leader, one of the biggest in the world right there in Southern Lebanon. The scene of devastating bombing by Israel in 2006, so of course Nasrallah would be there, among the people, infiltrating their hearts and minds with propaganda. I have an idea, let Israel eliminate their target! They are fully aware of the area, as they have significant experience within that Area of Operations. Obama, this is your moment, if they manage to take out Ahamdinejad the leader of Iran and a powerful pusher behind the weaponization of nuclear weapons, AND Nasrallah? This would be a devastating blow to enemies from the north and east, two sides of Israel with reverberations effecting Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Iran and Russia to name a few.

Do you think this will happen? I do not but I can hope and pray can’t I? Let me know what you think in the comments.
