Hizballah top dog dines with Iran's Thug-In-Chief and Syria's Assad in Damascus, discusses "Zionist threats against Lebanon and Syria"
Note yet again the projection, self-righteousness, and total absence of any sense of responsibility -- these are always the hallmarks of Islamic supremacist rhetoric. "Hezbollah chief Nasrallah meets Ahmadinejad in Syria," from the BBC, February 26 (thanks to all who sent this in):The head of the Lebanese Shia Islamist movement Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah, has made a rare public appearance in the Syrian capital, Damascus.
Sheikh Nasrallah attended a dinner with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
He is under an Israeli death threat and makes very few appearances in public. When he addresses Hezbollah, he does so by video from a secret location.
Both Syria and Iran provide the group with financial and military support....
Since 2006, the Hezbollah leader has made few public appearances in Lebanon, even avoiding key religious and political occasions....
Before Thursday's dinner, Sheikh Nasrallah and President Ahmadinejad discussed "the latest developments in the region, and Zionist threats against Lebanon and Syria", Hezbollah's al-Manar television reported.
"If the Zionist regime decides to repeat its past mistakes, the region will finish it off," al-Manar quoted the Iranian leader as saying.
After bilateral talks on Thursday, President Assad said Syria and Iran were working together to confront "Israeli terrorism".
Both leaders dismissed US calls for Syria to distance itself from Iran, emphasising their "deep and brotherly" ties.
The meeting came a week after the US signalled an attempt to improve ties with Syria, sending a senior official to Damascus for talks and nominating a new ambassador after the withdrawal of his predecessor five years ago.
