IF ONLY THEY UNDERSTOOD HIM AS WELL AS HE UNDERSTANDS THEM:
Nasrallah voices Israel respect (BBC, 5/04/07)
The leader of Hezbollah in Lebanon has said he respects Israel for issuing such a damning report on last year's war against Hezbollah fighters. [...]
In a rare show of esteem, Sheikh Nasrallah offered "every respect to a commission appointed by Olmert that condemns Olmert".
He also praised Israel for being "'committed and faithful to its own existence", which, he said, "was linked to its military might".
The leader of Hezbollah said that the commission's report showed that it was "ready to sacrifice one hundred Olmerts for Israel's survival".
Sheikh Nasrallah said that Israelis "study their defeat in order to learn from it". He contrasted this to Arab states that "do not probe, do not ask, do not form inquiry commissions... as if nothing has happened".
