Iranian men hold posters of Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah, during an anti-Israeli demonstration at Palestine Sq. in Tehran, Iran, Tuesday, July 18, 2006. Speaking to a crowd of thousands of anti-Israel demonstrators, Iranian parliament speaker Gholam Ali Haddad Adel told Israelis: ‘The towns you have built in northern Palestine (Israel) are within the range of the brave Lebanese children. No part of Israel will be safe.’
Iran’s Hizbollah, which claims links to the Lebanese group of the same name, said on Tuesday it stood ready to attack Israeli and U.S. interests worldwide.
“We have 2,000 volunteers who have registered since last year,” said Iranian Hizbollah’s spokesman Mojtaba Bigdeli, speaking by telephone from the central seminary city of Qom.
“They have been trained and they can become fully armed. We are ready to dispatch them to every corner of the world to jeopardise Israel and America’s interests. We are only waiting for the Supreme Leader’s green light to take action. If America wants to ignite World War Three … we welcome it,” he said.
Iranian religious organisations have made great public show of recruiting volunteers for “martyrdom-seeking operations” in recent years, usually threatening U.S. interests in case of any attack against the Islamic Republic’s nuclear programme.
But there is no record of an Iranian volunteer from these recruitment campaigns taking part in an attack.
Iran’s Hizbollah (Party of God) says it is spiritually bound to Shi’ite Muslim guerrillas in Lebanon but its command structure and funding are unclear.
And this is why President Bush is “slow-playing” the American hand while Israel has at the Syrian and Iranian client state, Hezbollah. Israel is fighting for United States interests in the Global War on Terror – and winning.
Flap agrees with Bill Kristol – It’s OUR War.
And Hugh Hewitt explains why George Will is WRONG about appeasement.
The United States must affirm its support for Israel and take it to Syria and Iran, if need be.

Despite Iranian Hizbollah’s insistence that it takes orders from Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, government ministries say Hizbollah does not implement official policy. Iran’s government has said it hopes for a diplomatic solution to the Israeli offensive in Lebanon.
While Iran did fund and support Lebanese Hizbollah during the 1980s, Tehran says it has not contributed troops or weapons in the latest violence. Israel says Iranian armaments have been fired against it.
Yeah, right…. Iran has not made any contributions to this war. These comments remind Flap of the old Soviet Union and how they manipulated their Eastern European satellite client states. And the Iranian missile technicians in Lebanon are there on vacation, right?

President Bush will “allow” Israel to wipe out most of Hezbollah in Lebanon before he calls for diplomacy. Hezbollah is an illegitimate terrorist state controlling the southern part of Lebanon. Israel should and must drive out and disarm Hezbollah from Lebanon.
Nothing more BUT nothing less…..
