Hezbollah in Beirut

Hezbollah is to hold a rally in Beirut to mark the end of the 40-day mourning period for its assassinated commander Imad Mughniyeh. Mughniyeh was killed by a car bomb in Damascus on 12 February.

 

Israel, although it denies any involvement in the killing, has been braced for retaliation. During his life, Mughniyeh lived in the shadows. But since his death, he has been acclaimed by Hezbollah as one of the group’s most important commanders.

The United States and Israel regarded him as a terrorist, responsible for a string of high-profile attacks over more than two decades. After his killing in Damascus last month, Hezbollah blamed Israel. The group’s leader Hassan Nasrallah spoke of “open war” and hinted at revenge.

The worst crime Bin Laden did was against the people he was supposedly defending and supporting, the Palestinians. Before him the difference between terrorist and liberator was thin and arguable, nowadays Bin Laden has cleared everything… what liberators …they are terrorists!
