Walid Jumblatt explains exactly what Nasrallah is. “Lebanese Druze Leader Walid Jumblatt Criticizes Nasrallah and Says: ‘Adolf Hitler Also Aroused His People’s Sense of Honor, And Led Germany into War,'” from MEMRITV, with thanks to Sr. Soph:
Following are excerpts from an interview with Lebanese Druze leader Walid Jumblatt, which aired on Al-Mustaqbal TV on July 29, 2006.
It does not come to us from the theories of several intellectuals. Noam Chomsky, because of his hatred for the Bush administration, comes from America, from Yale or Columbia University, in order to present his theory about the weapons of Hizbullah. Great. But I say to Noam Chomsky today: Our country is in flames.

In other words, there is a possibility that if his efforts to reach a settlement and to get closer to America fail, he might send to Lebanon – just like he sent to Iraq – the so-called “martyrdom-seekers,” whom I call “suicide bombers,” because they killed without discriminating between American soldiers, Shiites, Sunnis, and Christians. They made no discrimination. He might do this. He sent a messenger to Saudi Arabia, four days before going there himself. This messenger, a high-ranking officer, said to one of the princes, in charge of internal security in Saudi Arabia: “We fear that you will suffer terrorist attacks. If you want, we can help you.” That is regarding Al-Qaeda… In other words, he threatened them indirectly…
