Ahmadinejad: Israel terrified of Hizbullah
Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Israel is terrified of the Lebanese resistance and people. The Iranian leader made the comment in a phone conversation with the Hizbullah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah, ISNA reported on Thursday.
"The Zionists are really terrified of the resistance and people in Lebanon and the region," Ahmadinejad emphasized. "But they (the Israelis) are looking for opportunities to make up for their past defeats in Gaza and Lebanon as they feel their credibility and existence are in jeopardy."
However, the Iranian leader insisted, "They don't dare to do anything as they are afraid of the consequences."
Ahmadinejad underlined the need for maintaining readiness against any potential Israeli threats adding, "If the Zionist regime want to repeat the same mistakes they previously made, they must be gotten rid of once and for all, so that the region will be saved from their nuisance for ever."
President Ahmadinejad then reiterated that to this end, the Iranian nation will remain along the side of the Lebanese and other regional nations.
According to the report, the Hizbullah chief, for his part, said that Lebanon and the resistance movement are in favorable conditions. "We are not afraid of the Israeli threats and the Israeli threats will not work," Nasrallah said. "Strategically, Israel is not in a situation to wage a new war, but is after a psychological warfare with its threats… and of course, either way they will not get anywhere."
