“Americans love Pepsi Cola; we love death” Alert from Reuters: “Zest for martyrdom fuels Hezbollah in battle”
BEIRUT – A sister of Hezbollah fighter Mustafa Zalzali wears mourning black for her brother, but his death in battle with Israel elicits more pride than grief.
“We thank God almighty for making us the family of a martyr,” she said. “We received the news of his martyrdom with pride,” she told Hezbollah’s al-Manar television.
The family of Zalzali, killed in a recent battle, say they are ready for more sacrifices.
“His martyrdom has lifted our heads high,” said another of his sisters. “Whatever more we can offer, we will. Our men, our children, our siblings.”
