FROM HIS LIPS TO ALLAH'S EARS:

AP Interview: Hezbollah's No. 2 lashes out at Saudi Arabia over its airstrikes in Yemen (ZEINA KARAM, 4/13/15, Associated Press)

The deputy chief of the militant Lebanese Hezbollah group lashed out at Saudi Arabia on Monday, accusing the kingdom of committing "genocide" with its airstrikes campaign that has been targeting Yemen's Shiite rebels for over two weeks.

In a wide-ranging interview with The Associated Press, Sheikh Naim Kassem said Saudi Arabia made a "strategic mistake" by interfering in Yemen's internal affairs and warned that the kingdom will "pay a heavy price" for the campaign. [...]

Kassem, who spoke in the Shiite group's stronghold in southern Beirut, suggested that the situation inside Saudi Arabia could implode as a result of its "aggression" in Yemen.
