Netanyahu is an 'extremist,' Lieberman is 'coarse, crazy': Hezbollah chief
Hassan Nasrallah, head of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, called new Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman "coarse" and "crazy" in a speech he delivered from his bunker on Wednesday evening, Ynet reports.
The speech, which was beamed across Lebanon's Beqaa Valley via giant screens, marked the 16-year anniversary of the IDF pulling out of south Lebanon.
"In occupied Palestine, the crazy and coarse Lieberman has been made war minister by Netanyahu the extremist," Nasrallah said, quoted in Ynet.
"I don't want to interpret what that could mean."
Turning to the anniversary itself — given the moniker "Day of Resistance and Freedom" — Nasrallah said that "we remember that Israel is the real and main enemy.
"Israel covets everything good we have here, our land and our holy place," he continued. "Israel is the biggest enemy which stalks us and Palestine. There are those today who want to make Israel a friend, or even an ally.
"The only way to stop the aggression and remove the occupation is by complete resistance," Nasrallah said. "Our nation has been doing this and succeeded both in 2000 and 2006 using the military, the nation and the resistance.
"This all creates a powerful force when the other Arab nations refuse to help us due to the international conspiracy."
He continued: "We are insistent that this day be remembered as part of our history, part of our culture, part of our morals, and part of our strength now and in the future."
Turning his address to the Palestinians, Nasrallah added: "Beware of those who take advantage of the confusion and lack of clarity in the current struggle. These are the ones who want to turn Israel into a friend and an ally.
"Do not rely on those who have abandoned you for the past 70 years," he continued. "The resistance will succeed and Palestine will return to be the real struggle in the region. This day will come soon, God willing."

This day will come soon, God willing." Guess who abandoned the "palestinians?" yes it was he Lebanese. They evicted The PLO leader Yasser Arafat. they refuse to recognise "palestinian" "refugees" they are not allowed to work, are not allowed to own houses, not allowed to start a business. not even given passports, even these children that are born in Lebanon..! Does NAZRALLAH really think that even "palestinians? are so stupid?
