1938 Alert. “Hizbullah: We can strike all of Israel,” from the Jerusalem Post (thanks to Rosie):
Hizbullah has the ability to launch rockets against any point in Israel, the organization’s leader, Hassan Nasrallah said on Sunday.
He told Al Jazeera that Hizbullah had the capability to strike every part of Israel during last summer’s war, and retains that capability.
If they had it then, why didn’t they use it then?
“Even in the months of July and August 2006 there was not one place in occupied Palestine that we could not reach, every point and every corner,” Nasrallah was quoted as saying. “I stress that we can do this today as well.”
Well, pardon me if I’m skeptical. Not about the imminence of another war, but about their ability to strike all of Israel — what makes it ring hollow is his claim about last year.
