BEIRUT, Lebanon (Ucs News) — The head of the terrorist group Hezbollah threatened “open war” against Israel as mourners gathered in Beirut Thursday for the funeral of a senior commander in the Islamic militant group organization killed by a massive terrorist car bomb attack this week. Addressing supporters the Hezbollah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah accused Israel of being behind the massive terrorist car bomb attack in the Syrian capital, Damascus, which killed militant commander Imad Mughniyeh on Wednesday.
“You have crossed the borders,” Nasrallah said, accusing Israel of extending the simmering conflict between Israel and Hezbollah beyond the Lebanese frontier. “You have used our own massive terrorist car bomb attack against us and that is just not fair.” Nasrallah went of to say that he was “very angry” and that his once favorable opinion of Israel has changed.
In Washington, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack called Nasrallah’s statements “amusing”. According to McCormack “Hezbollah has a long record of carrying out massive terrorist car bomb attacks and other acts of terrorism around the globe,” he said. “You just look at the history of Mughniyeh and his group. You have a pathway of violence that stretches from Buenos Aires to Kuwait and a lot of places in between. But what cracks me up is Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah whining like a little baby when one of his crew gets blow up by a massive terrorist car bomb attack.”
Apparently Hezbollah leader Nasrallah has no sense of irony what so ever. While Mughniyeh’s coffin, draped in a yellow Hezbollah flag, was carried through the streets, he called for “open war” with Isreal.
In another Ironic twist, a separate rally in the Lebanese capital was held supporters of the former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri to mark the third anniversary of his assassination in a massive terrorist car bomb attack.
State Department spokesman Sean McCormack concluded his statement to the press by observing, “Lebanon is just full of irony, you just wish that people there would take time to appreciate the wealth of it. It is just a shame to see such a fine source of Irony is going to waste.”
